TASMANIA

The Tasmanian Legislature was opened on the 7th of September. On that occasion the Governor, Sir H. Young, announced that bills would be introduced to provide for the more effectual audit of the public accounts, to enable the Council and Assembly to deal with questions of their own privilege, to render Government employees ineligible to a seat in Parliament, to vest in the Judges of the Supreme Court the powers of the Land Claims Commissioners, to legalise and regulate the establishment of volunteer corps for the defence of the colony, to endow prize scholarships for Tasmanian youths to pursue their studies at English universities, and to incorporate the provisions of the new Divorce Law and Fraudulent Trustees Act in colonial legislation.

NEW "DIGGINGS" IN AUSTRALIA

The following is extracted from a letter dated Sydney, Sept. 11:- "There are some new diggings sprung up at the Fitzroy River, Port Curtis, which is on the northern boundary of Moreton Bay, that are causing immense excitement here. The principal diggings are surface. A 12lb. nugget has been found, together with 50oz., by one party. Sydney, we expect, will soon be deserted. It is confidently asserted by parties cognisant of the locale that the extent of gold-field in that district is over 100 miles in circumference.

All the steamers, small coasting-vessels, &c., are engaged taking passengers, freight, &c., up there. It is reported that it will prove the richest gold-field in New South Wales."

AUSTRALIA

We have received our Australian letters and papers; the dates being Melbourne, October 16th; Sydney, October 12. The third session of the first Parliament of Victoria under the new Constitution was opened by his Excellency Sir Henry Barkly on the 7th of October. The fate of the Reform Bill in the Upper House was looked forward to with much interest. It was understood to be the intention of the Ministry, in case the measure was again rejected, to demand a dissolution of Parliament- a demand to which his Excellency stood pledged to his cabinet to accede on such a contingency arising. On the evening of the 15th of October the Ministerial budget was laid before the Assembly by the Treasurer. "We have to congratulate the colony", says the Argus, "on the proud financial position in which it appears she stands. At this moment the colony is free of debt. She will have a balance in the present year over and above the expenditure of 307,879 available for the service of the year 1859. The revenue of the present year is upwards of three millions, and, including the balance from the present year, the estimated revenue of 1859 is 3,691,879." Since the departure of the previous mail Sir Henry Barkly had made a tour of a considerable portion of the country, having visited Belfast, Arrarat, Clunes, Ballarat, &c. Everywhere his Excellency was received with demonstrations of loyalty."

The New South Wales Parliament has voted the sum of 50,000 for the establishment of postal service via Panama; and the Governor has put himself in communication with the rulers of the other colonies in furtherance of the objects of the vote.

The chief item of news in the accounts from the gold-fields is the failure of the Fitzroy diggings at Port Curtis. A great rush had taken place to that spot, and the disappointment was excessive.

AUSTRALASIA

The Niagara has arrived with the heavy portion of the Australian mail. She brought home twenty-three passengers, and thirty boxes of gold, worth 137,722. The Australian mail which left Alexandria in the Niagara consisted of 80,000 letters, 90,000 newspapers, and 5,000 registered letters. The passengers by the Niagara were the first persons who travelled all the way by rail between Suez and Alexandria, the Egyptian railroad having been finished just before they arrived at Suez. On some parts of the journey by rail the passengers travelled at the rate of forty miles an hour. One of the most difficult and important railways in the world, and which has been some years in forming, is now completed, and the short route to India, Japan, and Australia can now be traversed by railway and steam-packet throughout.

At Sydney business was dull. The fresh gold diggings just discovered to the north of Sydney had excited much interest, and about 5,000 gold-diggers weekly were leaving Victoria bound for New South Wales. The Colonial Parliament is about to close a long Session, and out of the House, has ceased to be of any public interest. The Mayor of Sydney, Mr. John Williams, gave a fancy ball to about a thousand of the citizens last week, at the Prince of Wales Theatre. The following are the chief items of news brought by the Niagara from Tasmania:- In the House of Assembly a resolution has been adopted not to vote a salary to any public officer hereafter accepting a seat in the Legislature. By another resolution it has been determined to open to settlement Tasman's Peninsula, a district containing 140,000 acres of Crown land. The news from Fingal gold-fields, although not reporting any great results, is still of a nature to encourage men to persevere in looking for them. The estimates have passed the Assembly with little alteration.

Accounts brought by the Niagara from New Zealand are encouraging. The colony is prosperous. The gold-fields there are steadily increasing in value. They have now been discovered about eight months, and 100,000 worth of gold, in dust and nuggets, have already been obtained from them. They are situated close to Massacre Bay, where a boat's crew of the famous circumnavigator, Tasman, were massacred by the natives. This bay is fifty miles from Nelson, and in August last 1000 persons were at work at the diggings. The gold is of very good quality.

Page 597

Letters from Melbourne mention that the Patent Slip has been opened, and found to work most satisfactorily, but it was not of sufficient power, it was feared, for the largest class of vessels.

Letters have been received at Melbourne by a leading firm announcing that 368 pure alpacas, belonging to Mr. Ledger's flock, had been shipped from Valparaiso for distribution in Melbourne and Sydney. David Hughes, the solicitor who absconded some months since with liabilities and defalcations to the amount of 200,000 has been arrested in Australia. He had only 500 upon him.

GOVERNMENT EMIGRATION

The Government emigration-ship David M'Iver, 862 tons, Captain Robert Baillie, which sailed from Liverpool on the 4th of June, with 38 married couples, 123 single women, 101 single men, 36 girls between the ages of 1 and 12, 27 boys between the same ages, 5 female, and 6 male infants, (making a total of 374 souls, equal to 331 statute adults) arrived at Sydney, New South Wales, on the 24th of September. Five deaths (two adults and three children) and two births occurred during the voyage.

The Government of New South Wales have deputed an agent to visit England to confer with the Colonial Office, in conjunction with some representatives of the colony already in this country, on the best means for establishing a mail steam service via Panama.
