MISCELLANEOUS. The Pefola, from Melbourne, ri MacDonuel Bay and Robe, anived on Monday mormng, having left on May 7, touched at Port Mac Docnell Bay on the 8tb, and sailed on the lOtb. Ueit morning the steamer reached Robe, and she left at 2 p.m. During the passage she ex perienced strong head winds with a high sea; accompanied by rain and hail squalls. The RESOunios drove from the bell buoy to a position about north-half-west of the Saniauhoro Jetty, in which she lay and rode out the rough weather in half three fathoms. Visit to the Hesperus.— Early on Monday a start was made from the Semaphore Jetty to inspect Captain Legoe's new ship. The wind was about west as we headed off, and even on leaving the pier the fine proportions of the ship loomed up as she rode as quietly as if in harbour. Having a good scope of chain she veered a good deal ; but her rise and fall were scarcely per- ceptible. She is built of extra stout plates, and being of 1,777 tons register, will, in the event of her loading here, take an immense cargo of wool. To the common observer she looks graceful enough ; but no one would imagine her to be of such great burden unless he boarded, and then the dimensions of the spars and gear are apparent. The mainmast, in accordance with modern arrangements, is an iron tube 86 feet long and 2 feet 8 inches in diameter; then the topmast, topgallantmast, royal skysail and pole together send the main track 160 feet towards the clouds. The bowsprit is 2 feet 9 inches in diameter and 26 feet long, and on the end are carried a jibboon and flying boom of great wooden spars. The square of her yards may be imagined when it is stated that the main and foremast are furnished with spars of precisely tbe same length. Thus main and foreyards are 89 feet, by a diameter of 22 inches at the truss. The lower topgallantyards are 61 feet 8 inches, the royals 43 feet, and the skysailyards 32 feet 6 inches. She has a long fine line entrance, with deep undercut run, giving a clean delivery aft. The vessel has a nice sheer, and the adorn- ments of her hull set her off to great advantage. The sides are painted black, with a white por- streak, and the cutwater is surmounted by a demi figure of a full grown Hespeiide. On a line with the 'tween decks are pierced fine circular ports for ventilation, and in the poop they are of extra size. The feature of striking interest on boarding is a spacious, well-appointed promenade, 8O feet long, extending from the ensign staff close to the main rigging. The skylights, companions, and deck gear are of worked teak, and on stepping over     to the mam deck a pretty view is obtained of the cabin front, which is embellished with gilt work and varnished mouldings. The interior of the saloon is in excellent taste, there being seen a skilful adoption of various woods. Teak, rose wood, oak, and maple, with Dantzic fir and walnut, are placed together in excellent con- trast. The pilasters are surmounted by gilt Corinthian capitals, and the ceiling is white, with gc!d mouldings. The centre has a long telescope table, and overhead an admirable skylight has swinging trays and lamps. Differing from most modern sbips, the stern is devoted to two spacious cabins, with a ladies' bathroom contiguous. The fittings and upholstery are choice, and voyagers must be fastidious if not satisfied with such quarters as are provided. The bed berths are so constructed as to be made single or double by a neat contrivance. In every detail the saloon, staterooms, and ap- pointments are nearly complete. The gourmand will be delighted to observe that attantion is devoted to the buffet, which is in the charge of a first-rate steward, who has already served in the Darra, of the same line of ships. Abaft the mainmast is the next deckhouse, which properly belongs to the officers, but under the emigrant regime has been made into a dispensary. In the immense deck room a house or two seems of small importance, so before the main hatchway is another built of teak, in keeping with the surroundings. Here are the realms of the chef de cuisine, one being set apart for the ship's company and the saloon passen- gers, and the other for the emigrants. Pots, coppers, and boilers here would reign supreme, but that in one comer there is a neat engine by Chaplin. It is of eight horse-power, and its duties are those of a general slave without grumbling. Sometimes it has to heave up an anchor or take a pull at the topsail haulyards;  

if a shroud needed setting up, this appliance is at the service of Mr. Begg; if the ship wanted pumping out, which she never yet has done from leakage, the engine is in use; and, finally, it drives a powerful steam-winch to discharge the cargo. Attached to the cook's galley is a condenser capable of working off 40 gallons of fresh water per hour. This is when in full blast, but on the passage it was seldom required, because of the great sea stock carried. Under the same roof is the second cabin, which is at present occupied by youngsters. A large dining cabin and several commodious staterooms are here fitted with a due regard to comfort. The forecastle deck is as long as many a thousand ton ship's poop, and in addition to covering the tars' quarters it has below a fine Emmerson and Walker's windlass, oneof those contrivances which saves the ship's owners money by doing away with much manual labour. No person touches the cable except perbaps a couple in the chain-tier to see it stowed. On board there are nine excellent boats. Two on the quarter davits are lifeboats fitted with Clifford's patant lowering apparatus, which, however, the captain has con- demned as useless. On the main skids are four boats, and on the fore deckhouse three, one of which is a dockyard cutter. A descent to the lower regions through the fore-hatchway shows a fine roomy compartment occupied by 115 single men. It is a matter for regret that the emigration officials under the new system have not recognised the propriety of putting the single men in hammocks — a course which would not only afford more space, but would be con- ducive to cleanliness. There appeared to be a lot of useful hands, who at the early hour of the   visit were scrubbing and cleaning according to the customary routine. The shifting tables, bunk-boards, mumbers, mess-kids, and all sorts of utensils were as clean as possible. The main hatch compartment of the 'tween-decks was larger than the before -mentioned space, but of the same height, there being eight feet clear from deck to deck. The children here appeared to be legion, of all sizes, sorts, ages, and both   sexes. Hard-handed sons of toil with their wives and daughters were looking as happy as if their new home had been explored and found equal to the anticipation. It was gratifying to observe the master, as he passed along through the family groups, interchanging friendly words with each. In this compartment were 233 souls, and although the examination was on a close, murky morning, the place looked thoroughly clean. In yet another space 67 single females seemed ready to take situations early. Apparently the domestic servant difficulty should be partly solved. Dr. Duncan was early in attendance to muster the people, and arrange- ments were made to land the single females by the Sophia on Tuesday. The Commissioner, it is stated, has given instructions that no single females are to be hired before they have been transported to the depot. The Hesperus, as she lies at the Bell Buoy, is one of the handsomest, if not the finest ship ever seen there, and when painted and in harbour trim Captain Legoe may well be proud of his craft.
