SYDNEY. [FoOM OUR COROERPOYD.IET. Sydney, August 21, 1861. Te past week has not been very fruitful in topics of interest; so much so, that it would prove an ex Eedingly difficult task to write anything like a lengthy commu:ication uwith the meagre materials at ourdisposel Colonial alfairs offering no sufficient inducement, we are, to a great extent, thrown on foreign matters for our supply, and which indeed, just now, forms the subject of general conversation. The bustle and excitement incident to the arrival of a mail being over, we have had leisure to con over our "English files," to use a very newspapery term. Thesessid English files, and old ones they are-all take up the world's great topic of the day-America, on whbch they discourse grandly, and bring into active service the stock of Yankee lore which has been buried in editorial bosoms since the visit to Columbia's shores. This is verily an age of specu lation, inttheory as well as practice; probabilities are weighed with an e...

Local and District News. SUPPLY OF RIFLES.---Captain Murphy has at last received a reply to his communication addressed to head- quarters some weeks back requesting that fifth breech loading rifles be sent for the use of the Ipswich Corps. It is to the effect that twenty five will be sent up immedi- diately, the fact of several cases not having yet been "delivered" preventing their sending at present the number required. However, as soon as the cases are unpacked we are promised that the requisite number shall be made up.

Ir another colnumn we publish a leter signed " Observer" We do not at all approve either ·of the matter or the manner of our correspond ent, but we insert hislietter in compliance with a rule we have laid down to publish in prefer ence communications which take the opposite view of a question from that which we have done, provided that they are not libellous. The personalities in which "Observer" in dulges doeot amount to libel, for they cannot possibly injure the persons referred to. For instance, he characterises a gentleman whom he asserts to be connected with the Ptess of this town, as an "adventurer." Now we believe that there are scarcely any persons in the colony, with the exception of a few who came here without their wishes in the matter being consulted, who were not strictly adven turers when they first arrived.. Adventurerk have made Queensland all that she is, and it is kn the adventurous ipirit of the population that we depend for the sources of her future pros perity. ...
