The feel'iDg evinced in some parts of Sydney hat night, as the various reports came in of the progress of the eleotions, reminded the looal politician of the oentests of some twelve or thirteen years ago. Withal, however, there was a strong ourrent of good humour prevailing, and the orowds who assembled at the plaoes where they oonld get the earliest information, while they were ready enough to give hearty cheers at the announoement of what was oonsidered good news, were very chary of groans. In fact the spirit of Christmas time seemed already to be ooming over the people, and there were far more manifestations of good-will than of a -contrary temper. It is likely enough that some of the defeated candidates may not hay/a been in so amiable a mood. No man. likes to be beaten, and tho boasting and bragging of the party now in a hopeless minority had been so great that the downfall must be doubly humiliating. The late Treasurer has as, yet been unable to obtain a seat; the late Ministe...

This description of the appearance ef the lakes and mountains appears to have been obtained from the Arab traders who brodght the doctor's letter to Zentibar.

Frinoe Metternich Wounded in a Duel A dud between Count Eobert de Beaumont and Prinoe Metternich came off on Ootober 15 in an iaUnd on the Rhine, near Kehl. It appears PriECs Metter nich wished tbat the weapons should be sabres; and M. de Beaumont, although in the character of the offended combatant, and therefore entitled to theohotoe of arms, consented. When they bad arrived on the ground, the seconds arranged the preliminaries of the duel, which it was decided eboulu cot cesse until the surgeon had etated that either of the adverstries was iDoapaoitattd. Tbe Prince attacked his opponent eagerly, and according to the rules of tbe speoial weapon which he had selected. II. it Beaumont, on the other band, enly parried, and, as he dfd not Jraow the management of tbe sabre, he only made thrusts with tbe point. Snddeely be fell on tee Prince most furiously, and pierced the upper pert cf his right arm through and through. Streams of blood gushed out from the wound, and, the enrgeon lavin...

Great Yacht Eace Challenge. Mr, Bennett, tke owner of the American yaoht Dauntless, has challenged Mr, Aehbury to race the Cambria from the Old Head of Kinsale to the light ship off Sandy Hook. Tke challenge is for £5000 a side, to be laid out in the purchase of a service of piste, or if that is considered too large a stake, Mr. Bennett is willing to modify ft, or. if Mr. Ashbury prefers to race ' tor honour merely,' to let the trophy be a set of colour*; the yachts it start, acocrding to a propoeal made in one of Mr. Asbbury's numerous challenges, on the 8ih of March nest. Mr. Bennett declines all matches upon inland waters, but intimates that other Amerioan yachts will take up those chal lenges. The suoMtio style of Hr, Bennett's letter, . and his inuendoea that Mr. Aebbury haB coupled his challenge for the ocean race with others which he knew would not be aoospted, we should think will in duce Mr. Asbbury to put aside every impediment to thema'.eh, and toacoepttha challenge witho...

The Flying Squadron has departed from Port JaoksoD, after exactly fourteen days' Btay in this harbour, leaving to the people of Sydney the memory of a splendid vision. The ooloniets did not require ocular proof to convince them that, in oase of need, Old England could send out for the defenee of any part 01 tne isntisn empire a loroe mat no enemy could withstand. But it has been a high gratification to thousands of our people to see with their own eyes speoimene of the artillery vhioh, when required, ean pour forth the thunder of the British Navy against a foe that may seek to injure any portion of the territory subjeot to the British Grown. And more worthy of our admiration than the six-and-a-half ton guns, which stand prepared to beloh forth dee tiuotion on any who might dare to insult or wrong any part of the Queen of England's dominion, are the British tars who are ready to fulfil their duty as becomes the men of a fleet tfiat glories in tne memories or .blake and Kelson and Nam...
