AMONO tho passengors who arrived yesterday by the steamor Tolograph was Mr. T. Higin botham, tho Engineer-in-Chiof of tho Victorian Bailway Department. Tho object of this gen- tleman's visit is, wo believe, to act as sole ar- bitrator in tho disputo betwoen tho Government and Mr. Willcox, tho resident representative of Messrs. Peto, Brassey, and Betts. It is feared that some delay may occur in consequence of tho late Ministerial changes. Tho Attorney Goneral in esse has received a good brief and fin» instructions from Mr. Wüloox, whilst tho ex Attorney-General has been fully instructed as to the points to be raised on. behalf of the Go-

vernment. In fact each learned counsel is per-

fectly acquainted with all tho points in his opponent's case, and equally in ignorance o those of his own. The best plan for the Governor would bo to allow Mr. Pring to re- tain his lucrativo brief, and to feo Mr. louey to an equal extent to protect tho interests of the

A KB&BACEEUL scene tooïfplaco yesterday afternoon aftor the moetijfe in the Town Hall, à large crowd collectcrVunder tho archway anil in front of the Parlipnentary Buildings j tho ostensible object of /he gathering was, as

many present took care/to explain, to " pay popular respoet to Mo/sra. Herbert and BafT." ^ho former gontlemanfliaving made his appear-

ance, in leaving the /Parliamentary Buildings, ho was immed'atejy saluted with outcrios of "Bring Bair,''iii«sos, and groans. Thinking, probably, theM was dangor ahead, the ox and prospectivo ,' ./Premier retreated through tho archwaJ; but shortly aftor re-ap- peared in coppany with tho Hon. B. I. C. Browne Bmh gentlemen turned down Queen street, follow/d hy an immoneo crowd, hooting, veiling, and going on in a very excited manner. This conduct was continued all thó way down Queen-street to near Petrie's Bight, tho crowd growing in numbers and fierceness as it proceeded. Near tho bight, stones and other missiles were being freely thrown, while tho efforts of the few policomen who had followed the crowd were completely set at nought. Things began to look sorious, as voices wcro heard calling out to " Throw him into the river!" when a cab was fortu- nately secured, into which Mr. Herbert got as quickQy as possiblo, just as dangerous-looking missiles (wcro ¡lying thickly about his head. Two or tSireo men mado a rush to stop tho cab, but other*, probably thinking enough had been done, proposed " Letting him off," and during the time a) parley was taking placo,-tho cabman whipped ¿rp his horses and drovo away, amidst yclis, grcuans, and hisses. At this juncture several prolicomon made their appearance, but wo saw ijio arrests made, although several voices amoug tljie crowd were proclaiming their deter miuatioi i to go aftor Mr. Bah", and " Sorve him m tho sa'r'ne way."

The programme gone tU^ugh was, if possible, of a moro excel, lent doi Aption than thoso of previous nights ; or ratbl »to speak perhaps moro correctly, the perform«? appeared to bo endeavoring to excel themselvoj, in consequence of the charitable object of Jio entertainment.

comparofabrably with the performances of all who hai| lisited the colony at any previous date. Toeliwo former, in our opinion, appear to most jdiWago, and evidence the most skill and cournjk in their seemingly hazardous doings oi tie double trapeze. Wo cannot also refrain fraiir^forring to tho exquisitely perfect performata of the well-known equestrienne Madamo jltriquos ; tho easo and agility and tho evidoat blight with which sho goes through her part,, Iro' very attractive, and have rendered irj a great favorite with all

those vho, have visited the circus. Messrs. Jone and Henley ably contribute to each ovenlhg' entertainment, the former per- haps morM jrticulnrly by his equestrianism, and tho lafcr by his acrobatio feats ; Mr. , Jones, howov, is inferior to very few in the

pieces which-equiro eithor strength, agility, or suppleness. Vith regard to tho jesters, they are everylhin.that could bo desired, and koop the audience i a chronic Btatc of risibility. In conclusion, TV may ¡¡tato* that we think Mr. Greenber deurving of encouragement, not only becai^oi the intrinsic merit of tho enter- tainment gillie nightly provides, hut because he so kindtolunteered to give the services of
