Mr. BABBAGE.—One of Mr. Babbage's com- panions-in-travel is now in town, having left his chief, whom he represents as luxuriating in kid gloves and other unbushmanlike decorations in the northern districts. The returning traveller gives but a poor account of the expedition, but we had rather not stake too much upon the re- presentations of a man who has not stood firm to his comrades. Still, he may be right, and, under any circumstances, we are glad that Mr. Gregory is arranging to go in quest of the explorers.

CORRESPONDENCE. .T.M.-Our correspondent's sentiments are good, but his metres are defective, as he would soon perceive were we to put them in print.

' CABINET-Our correspondent calls attention to the quota- tions in the labour market, as relating to cabinet-makers. He says the real price paid is from 9s. to 109. per ¿lay. As his letter reached us after dark we were unable to make very ex- tended enquiries. One cabinet-maker, to whom we referred the matter, says he gives ils. YYre will make further enquiries, 1 and in the meantime we shall be happy to receive communi- I cations from any parties capable of assistiug us in compiling what has been for years so badly wanted, a correct list of I prices and table of wages.

TASMANIA. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 27 July 1858

TASMANIA. AFFRAY AT PORT ABTHUR.-An affray of rather a serious nature occurred at Port Arthur on the 29th of June, between the police and some of the miners in the employment of Mr. Hurst. The following is from the Courier of the 2nd instant :-It appears that on the evening of Monday some of the miners had been drinking in the house of one of their fellow workmen. The senior constable, Michael Mellon, was also there, and at the inquest which was subsequently held it was proved that he had given the woman who resided in the house drink. The man who lives with this female, for they are not married, was absent at the time. He soon afterwards, however, returned, and ejected Constable Mellon from the house. Some time after this a ticket-of-leave holder, whose name is Collins, and in the employ of the lessees of the mines, was told that the constables were going to confine him for a breach of the convict regulations. Collins then left the house accompanied by others. Subsequently a party ...

MORETON BAY. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 28 July 1858

MORETON BAY. The followiug is from the Moreton Bay corres- pondent of the Herald .. The petition to the Queen relative to separation, and particularly to the southern boundary, was signed by about 700 householders, and transmitted by the Waratah, so that it h to be hoped it was in time for the supplementary English mail. The recom- mendation as to the separation of the Clarence, when the inhabitants reached 10,000, I still maintain was ill-judged. The weather continues to be remarkably good. In the beginning of the week we had some rain, but lhere was not much, nor did it last long. The sky since has been clear both night and day, but the atmosphere is more cold and bracing than previously. It would appear from the Darling Downs Gazette that beyond the range the rains were much more heavy. " Notwithstanding the favourable weather, sickness is veiy prevalent, both among old and young, but especially among the latter.

NEW SOUTH WALES. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 28 July 1858

NEW SOUTH WALES. The Kidnapping Case.-The following notice of this case is from the weekly summary of the Sydney j Morning Herald : The case of the Sutton, to which we have formerly alluded, has been again under discussion. The papers relative to the alledged kidnapping of Kingsmill islanders by the master of this vessel have been laid upon the table, and will shortly be before the public. The charge seems, so far as we can gather it, to have been really one of the most serious nature. The whole transaction was objectionable enough in any case too close an approach to the prohibited slave trade to be creditable for vessels under the British flag to be engaged in, even if not wholly unlawful. But there was an accusation not only of carrying off a large number of Kingsmill islanders upon false pretences, but of doing the same thing to two white men. This matter has been before the Crown law officers, but no steps, it is said, can be taken, because both the ac cusor and accused have le...

UTAH. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 28 July 1858

UTAH. The Mobmons.-On the 14th March, the date of last advices, everything was quiet in Salt Lake City. The troops still occupied Fort Bridges, and the Mor- mons were busily engaged in putting in their erops, with the prospect of a very favourable season. The Saints had been advised by their Elders to sow no more land than they coidd conveniently reap at a short notice, and more persons had given their attention to farming, taking up portions of the land owned by farmers, than ever before. The Mormons declare themselves ready for any emergency, and feel satisfied of their capacity to prevent the entrance of the force under Colonel Johnston. They depend greatly on the measures taken to render the various passes im- pregnable, and feel confident in being able to gather their crops and cache their resources before a detour could be made by -way of the South Pass, or before Colonel Johnston could be reinforced by troops enough to place his entrance into Great Salt Lake City beyond a dou...

"REPORT No. 91. "TO THE COMMISSIONERS FOR THE ADELAIDE WATER SUPPLY. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 28 July 1858

'REPORT No. 91. " To the Commissioners for the Adelaide Water. Supply. " Gentlemen-You will naturally be anxious to receive a report on the present state of the river weir ; not merely on account of the sudden and severe test to which it is in course of being exposed, in consequence of the high floods, but possibly for the further reason that rumours are in circulation at a distance to the effect, first, that the weir was utterly useless ; and then-as flying reports never lose anything in their transmission from mouth to mouth-ending with a bold statement that the weir was in ruins. " It is excessively trying to a structure of this kind to besubjected, at so early a stage, and when it cannot be said to be quite completed, to such a severe ordeal ; the magnitude whereof may bo somewhat understood when the Board are informed that, at 10 o'clock this (Monday) morning, the water then maintaining a depth of tlu-ee feet on the crest at the centre, and two feet at the extreme ends, thirty-...

Hindmarsh Library and Institute.-An inte- resting lecture on the wonders of the Microscope, was delivered last evening at the Congregational Chapel Hindmarsh, by the Rev. J. W. Cox. The attendance was large and respectable. We have not space to-day for full report. Mb. Black's Entertainment.-Mr. Black gave another of his now popular entertainments, on Monday night, at the East Torrens Institute, Ken- sington. The weather was exceedingly unpropitious, but the very pleasing way in which many of the Eng- lish, Irish, and Scotch ballads were rendered by this pleasing vocalist, made the evening pass off with plea- sure to those who were bold enough to attend. The song "Come under my plaiddy There's room for twa,'r was suggestive in the extreme of the unenviable posi- tion of the auditory, for it was evident that an extra topcoat was a desideratum on the occasion. Mr. R. B. White deserves a word also for the effective manner in which he accompanied Mr. Black on the pianoforte. The Supbehe...

The-Intercolonial Telegraph.-Mr. S. W. McGowan, Superintendent of the Telegraph on the Melbourne side, refuses to acknowledge that the irregularities are attributable to the Victorian portion of the line. Writing to the Melbourne papers, he says : "I deem it necessary to contradict a statement relative to the delay in ojiening telegraphic communication with Adelaide. " Having previously noticed similar incorrect versions of the supposed causes of the delays which have occurred from time to time since the 24th of May last, and accord- ing to which the onus was almost invariably thrown upon this colony, I now beg distinctly to state that the western division of the lines under my conti ol has been in regular working order since the month of February last, and that the allusion to delay having been occa- sioned by the non-arrival of the Victorian instruments at Mount Gambier is quite incorrect, as may readily be understood by a reference to your own columns, by which it will appear tha...

NEW SOUTH WALES. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 28 July 1858

NEW SOUTH AVALES. Advices are from Sydney to the 20th. In the Herald of that dato we read : Speculation as to the arrival of the May mail, per steamship Alctoria, has ceased. From some circumstances respecting the slow speed of this vessel, and Van fact of her having touched the ground on leaving Point de Galle on her way to Suez, it appears highly probable that the next steamer, the European, will bring down the May and June mails. These irregularities, and the annoyance they cause to all classes of colonists, have originated the idea that the Australian colo- nies should undertake their own postal service. The matter could not be in a worse position than it is in at this moment. The original company, the European and Australasian, have made a bungle from the beginning. The Royal Mail Com- pany's directory, without the assent of Its shareholders, agreed to come forward and assist the former with its powerful steam fleet. But this movement has caused a rall of 20 per cent, in the pr...

The New Loan Association.-We take this opportunity of stating that we have received a letter from Messrs. Wright Brothers, stating that they have never heard of any combination (such as we referred to on Monday) existing amongst lawyers and land agents, to refuse loans upon property brought under Mr. Torrens's Act. The letter of our correspondent shall, be published to-morrow, when we will offer some remarks on the subject. Meanwhile we can say that the statement was made to us on the highest autho-   rity, although we did not endorse it, but re- marked- "whether this combination really exists,   we will not say."

A very extraordinary article on the breadstuff's of the Sydney market appeared in the Mel- bourne Argus of July 24. As the writer ofthat article has evidently increased the quantity of flour in Sydney somewhere about tenfold, and as a correct idea of the facts of the case is of great importance to the three colonies more im- mediately interested in the flour trade, we need offer no apology for referring to the subject. The following is from the article in question : "After an attentive observation of what has taken place for some time past in the flour markets of the clif feret colonies, as regards the imports and exports of each, compared with the consumption of the surrounding dis- trict, and an unbiassed examination of the most authentic documents conveying information of the produce of wheat last year, wo expressed an opinion that, even with a full allowance for the deficiency in the crops of New South AVales and South Australia, there was more wheat and flour within the Aus- tr...
