A FIELD FOR EMIGRATION, The Weekly Diepatith is publishing an interesting series of papers on 'The Emigration Fields of the World,' the first of which is devoted to this colony and its resources, 'There exists not,' says the writer, ' on the broad eurface of the globe a rioher, more promising, or more exteneive emigration field than that vast region, far too large- although, like the mother country, surrounded by the ever netlees ocean — to be termed an island, known far and wide by the not unpoetical appellation of Australia.

The consideration of the causes of suoh calamities is a matter of personal interest wherever safety is dependent on machinery. The late mail brought; informa tion of a most astounding disaster. It appears that H.M. double-sorew composite gun-vessel Thistle, the last vessel constructed at \vool wiok Dockyard, was on her trial trip near Fhoerness, when an explosion took plaoe by which eight men were instantly killed and eleven more seriously injured, of whom four died shortly after the accident The Thistle had just been fitted with two pairs of engines.
