House of Lords, Monday.

Lord Taunton having presented some petitions from the city of Melbourne and other places in the colony of Victoria praying for the immediate and permanent abolition of convict transportation to Australia, Earl Granville said the question was finally and satisfactorily settled. The discovery of a fertile tract of land between Western Australia and Victoria rendered the continuation of transportation to Western Australia impossible, and within a period of three years from the date of the Colonial Secretary's despatch transportation thither would cease. A few observations were made on the same subject by Lords Cranworth and Redesdale.

Some detail of Emigration

"The official returns of emigration from Liverpool during last month have been completed by the emigration officers, to be laid before the Board of Trade. From these returns it appears that there has been a large falling off in point of numbers in February last, as compared with the same month of last year. In the month just ended, eighteen ships, carrying in all 4956 passengers, sailed under the provisions of the Passenger Shipping Act, of whom 3842 were steerage and 214 were cabin passengers; only two classes being recognised by the Act. Besides these, ten ships, carrying 348 passengers, also sailed during the month, not under the regulations of the statute referred to. Of the eighteen ships sailing under the provisions of the Act.

Fourteen were cleared for the United States of America, carrying 2655 steerage and 189 cabin passengers. The steerage passengers consisted of 831 English, 93 Scotch, 137 Irish, and 424 from other countries.

For New South Wales there sailed one ship, with 398 steerage passengers and one in the cabin. The steerage passengers included 52 English, 24 Scotch, and 322 Irish, but none from other countries. To Queensland, one ship was dispatched with 422 steerage and 23 cabin passengers. The steerage passengers consisted of 30 English, 3 Scotch, and 389 Irish, but none from other countries. For Victoria, two ships were dispatched, carrying 367 steerage passengers and one in the cabin. The steerage passengers numbered 172 English, 9 Scotch, 183 Irish, and three from other countries. Of short ships, as they are technically called- that is, those which do not sail under the provisions of the Passenger Shipping Act- five sailed for the United States, carrying 244 passengers; for Vancouver Island, one ship sailed, with 9 passengers; for Victoria, one ship was dispatched, with 24 passengers; and for South America, China, and Africa, three ships, with 71 passengers. The total number of passengers who left Liverpool last month, it will therefore be seen, was 4404; In February of last year the number was 7628, thus showing a decrease on the month of 3224 as compared with the same month's emigration in 1864. In January of this year the number of passengers who sailed from Liverpool was 2277."

A new city, to be called Palmerston, is in the course of formation at North Western Australia.

An Australian paper states that pheasants, partridges, and hares are multiplying fast in the woods around Geelong, in Victoria.

AUSTRALIA

(From our own Correspondent) Melbourne, Feb 24, 1865

Victoria has not, I fear, raised her character of late in British estimation. Unluckily, she is fast going to prove that in the lowest deep there is still a lower. The list of her blunders during the last month would be a long one; so it is as well to begin at once. Neither this nor any of the other Australian colonies wish, directly of indirectly, to sever their allegiance to the mother land. But, if not disloyal in spirit, a very large section of the community- the most numerous and the most noisy, but anything but the most respectful and influential- are vehemently urging a measure which has all the practical effects of a financial separation, and, in the particular case of Melbourne, may be called suicidal. The experience of the last month has shown that in Victoria we have a Parliament so alien to British common-sense and British spirit, and so alien to the teachings and policy of England's profoundest writers and wisest statesmen, as to pass a measure embodying all the pernicious elements of the long-exploited system of protection. It is fortunate that, by our Constitution Act, the bill has to receive the sanction of the Upper House before it becomes law; and, such being the case, there is still the chance of our being saved from disgrace and ruin. The Assembly seemed to pass the measure under some infatuation.

The evil effects of the proposed change are even now observable everywhere.

The erection of large warehouses that were contracted for has been stopped, numbers of hands have been discharged from the employment of importers, and the price of some of the necessities of life have risen from 10 to 25 per cent. What makes the change in the tariff the more unwarrantable is the fact that our finances are, or were, in the most satisfactory condition, the Treasurer's statement showing that the new year could be commenced with an actual balance at the right side of the account.

The duty on tea and sugar has been somewhat reduced, and the gold export duty all but repealed. To make up for the deficiency thus caused, duties have been levied on almost all imports, including wearing apparel, boots, shoes, hats, hams and bacon, candles, butter, cheese, oats, &c. It ought to be mentioned to our credit, that, as soon as the Budget was disclosed, the mercantile classes took instant steps to endeavour to thwart the designs of the Ministry. Meetings were held, a free-trade league was formed, towards the carrying out of the objects of which 5000 was subscribed in the course of a day or two. As the measure was pushed rapidly through the Assembly, no influence could be made to bear upon that body. So the league is directing its efforts towards the Council, to which several large petitions against the new tariff have been already presented, and others from different districts are in the course of preparation.

The Land Bill has passed the Council, but so altered that it is questionable whether the Assembly will agree to the alterations. A motion for the payment of members was lost in the Assembly the other night by a majority of three. Mining operations continue to be successfully prosecuted, the only drawback being the scarcity of water.

The Great Britain has arrived, after a fine run of sixty days; the Norfolk, sixty-nine days; the Royal Standard, seventy-four days; and the Childers, seventy days.

The quarterly and monthly returns of the emigration from Liverpool show an enormous decrease, as compared with the corresponding period of last year. Twenty-one ships sailed, under the Act, for the United States during the last month, with 6872 passengers, of whom 1445 were English, 519 Scotch, 528 Irish, and 1053 belonging to other countries. To Victoria there were two ships, with 503 passengers, of whom 188 were English, twenty-one Scotch, 283 Irish, and four belonging to other countries. To South America there was one ship, with seventy-one passengers, sixty-eight of whom were steerage and three cabin; and, of the whole, four were English, the remainder belonging to other countries.

Of "short" ships there were six to the United States, with 311 passengers; one to Victoria, with twenty-four passengers; one to the West Indies, with seven passengers; one to South America, with fifty-five passengers; and one to Africa, with fifty-five passengers. The total number of emigrants was 7878, against 14,488 in the corresponding month of last year. In the last quarter there sailed, under the Act, 14,516, while in the corresponding quarter of 1864 the number was 26,547.

White, M.D., surgeon superintendant, assisted by Mrs. Grace Treginnig, matron, a nd Mr. Richmond Baker, schoolmaster.

The Emigration Commissioners have chartered the Cornwallis, belonging to Messrs. Thomas and Willaim Smith, London, for the conveyance of emigrants to Adelaide, South Australia, at 12 7s. 9d. per statute adult. The Cornwallis is appointed to receive her passengers at Plymouth on the 29th of May next.

The tide of emigration from Ireland shows no sign of ebbing. Last week hundreds of people, from the grey-headed grandfather to the child in arms, poured into Queenstown for embarkation in the Louisiana, en route from Liverpool for New York. Hundreds more went by the Inman steamer. Emigration from Ireland to America has totally changed its aspect. The Cork Herald says that "when the tender leaves the pier with its human freight a hearty cheer breaks from the emigrants, which is generally responded to on shore, under moist eye or sorrowful face seldom seen among the throng."

During the past month thirty-six emigrant ships left Liverpool, conveying abroad 593 cabin and 16,670 steerage passengers. Of the steerage passengers 4859 were English, 306 Scotch, 8472 Irish, and 3033 foreigners.

The comparison with the corresponding month of last year is as follows:- in May, 1864, the number of emigrants who sailed from Liverpool under the provisions of the Act, was 17,338; in May, 1865, 17,263- being a decrease of 75; the number not under the Act in May, 1864, was 964; in May, 1865, 629, being a decrease of 335; or there were twenty-eight ships, 392 cabin passengers, and 13,880 steerage.
