From the Overland Mail. The Paris correspondent of the Inde pendence Beige, referring to the Queen's visit, says, that it was observed that although Prince Albert examined with minute at tention many of the articles in the palace of the Exposition, her Majesty was gene rally contented with a cursory glance. There was, however, he says, one notable exception. A curious toy seemed greaily to delight both the Queen and the Prince of Wales. It was a gigantic do!!, represent ing a grenadier of the Guards — ' a sort of Garyantua,' which sat with the M alakoff between its knees, and devoured Russian soldiers at the rate of fifteen a minute.

WH JfiHjuhieii & Commeitriat |ftu;s. Quid certim etqyx. deceits, euro et roffo, ft omms in hoc sum. WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 2, 1856. The method adopted by the Board of Edu' cation with reference to the payment of masters has also, in common with every act of that body, met with the disapprobation of His Excellency. Hitherto the sala ries of the teachers have been, to a certain extent in the principal schools, and alto gether in most of the rural districts, derived from fees ; but the Governor suggests that the masters shall henceforth receive a fixed salary, and not appropriate any of the school fees to their own use. We conceive that the mode of paying in structors is a matter of trifling importance and it would be to us equally indifferent i whether they were remunerated for their services by the payment of a regular and fixed salary or by the receipt of lees. At the same time we cannot admit with the Governor that the latter mode of payment necessarily involves neglect on the ...

Upon the receipt of the sews of the fall of Sebastopoi, the usual military salute was fired. The exports of gold for the present year was 99 tons 19 cwt. 22 Bas. The Argus says : — ' It is highly satisfactory to learn that the tenor of private letters received from the East confirms the hope of a speedy re sumption of the steam postal service by the Pe -nJT-sr-W and Oriental Company in the Austra lian colqkiies. Arrangements are being made by the agents of the Company ; and a well-known and highly-esteemed commander of a steamship for merly on the line writes, from Aden, that he ex pects to visit Melbourne again verj shortly, in either the Madras or the Bombay. In the* ab sence of any positive advice to the agents here or in the East, we must reluctantly conclude that the mail of the 25th October will not be brought out by this means, as proposed by the Company in their offer ...

Local and Domestic Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 2 January 1856

Local and Domestic Intelligence. Letters have been received from Mr. A. Gre- gory giving some account of his movements. It appears that the exploring party left Moreton Bay on the 12tt August, passed inside the Bar- rier reef on the 13th, landing at many of the is-   lands, and anchoring at night, the trip resembling more a river navigation than a sea voyage. On the 26th August they reached Port Albany, near   Cape York, and on the following day entered the Endeavour Straits, and crossed the Gulf of Car- pentaria. From Moreton Bay to the Endeavour River the coast is described as high and rugged, every part of the country being apparently co- vered with dense scrub, except an occasional patch of grassy land, serving as a contrast to the dull green of the scrub and forest After passing the Endeavour River the coast is very similar to   the Champion Bay country, exhibiting the same flat-topped hills as far as Cape York. The party saw several canoe...
