. LATEST FROM SYDNEY. [Pn0*l Oü« OWN CORIIESPON'DENT.] Sydney, August l8, 1846.

There are no arrivals in the way of shipping, nor any de- partures, although it was expected that th Calypso would sail for Guam to ihy. You will see by our Sydnuy journals of this date that the in- timation 1 gave you in my last, of the resignation of John Rose Holden, K<q., as one of the alder- men of the body coporate, proved correct- that gentleman tendered his resignation yesterduy at ii meeting of the council, and from what 1 can leam to-day, there is a good deal of maneuvering and improper iuflueuce being used in order to re- turn one of the three remaining candidates for the aldermanic gown-the others haung resigned The present candidates are Messrs. Thurlow' Fisher, and Little; and so little respe...

ENGLISH INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 25 August 1846

ENGLISH INTELLIGENCE. THE HIMILAYAYA brings no latter intelli- gence than we were previously in receipt of, both via Sydney and Adelaide. The following are the only additional items of intelligence which have attracted our notice :— We learn that her Majesty and his Royal Highness Prince Albert will, at the commence- ment of the autumn, again repair to Scotland, to pass some weeks in the Highlands. It is said, that while in that portion of her dominions, the Queen and the Prince Consort intend to visit   several of the resident aristocracy. We believe   the Queen will principally reside at Blair Atholl, the seat of the Duke of Atholl. The Court is at presennt at Windsor. The Queen has been pleased to appoint Nor-   man William Macdonald, Esq., to be Captain jGeneral and Governor-in-Chief in and over the   colony of Sierra Leone and its dependencies.

THE NEW SECRETARY OF STATE. (From the Times, April 17.) [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 25 August 1846

THE NEW SECRETARY OF STATE. (From the Times, April 17.) TUE despatches of the Colonial Secietary to the Governor-Geneial of Canada, which will be found elsewheie, aie in- teresting as the fiist published specimens of Mr Gladstone's official correspondence There is much piomise in them that the new Colonial Secretary will perfoim the duties of his office with greater skill, and I theiefore with better success, than any of his late predecessors With the Canadians, Mr. Gladstone has no easy task to perform. It has so long been an axiom of Government, that the produce of our colonies ought to be admitted into Great Britain at a lower rate of duty than the produce of foreign countries, that protection has come to be considered a prescriptive right adherent to the very condition of a colony. And the axiom, when it was first established, was well enough. At a time when our colonies were forbidden to resort to any other country than Great Britain for the goods they required, when they were ...

We were, staying at Mr Merrick's, and volunteered to accompany     Mr Walshe's party in search of a white woman. We were out about two Sundays from the time of starting. A boy belonging to the Gipps Land tribe, now living with Mr. Tyers, C.C., accompanied us. After some days search, we came on     a tribe of natives on the Big Lake. When they saw us they run away. Some of the women remained. The little boy was then told to enquire   where the white woman was. They said that she was not with them, but was with black...

(ffommcrrinl intelligent*'. MELBOURNE MARKETS. A fors r 24. 1846. i THE supply of fat cattle Injt week was propor- tioned with the demand, and former prices easily obtained for those of good quality. Good work- ing bullocks are scarce, and much sought after; fat wether« are steady at ubout 2d. per lb. ; and a small lot of infertor wethers realised )!s. per head. Horses have sold freely, and fetched from nine to fifteen guineas, and twenty guineas have been obtained for first-rate hacks.

IRELAND.-THE PROTESTANT ALLIANCE. The first meeting of this new Orange confederation was held on Wednesday, in Dublin. The Earl of Roden, Grand Master of the Irish Orangemen, presided.

Resolved, That it be the object of this society to support and advance the great principles asserted with respect to religion at the reformation, and estab- lished, as regards the constitution, at the Revolution of 1688 ; and to maintain, in its truth and integrity, the United Church of England and Ireland, as guaranteed in the articles of the Union, and intended to have been secured by solemn pledges in the Act for Roman Catholic emancipation. 2.
