The New Bishop of Melbourne (Dr. Field Flowers Goe) left London for his diocese on the 17th of February, by the Orient steamer Oroya, which should reach her destination in the course of a few days. Tbe Bishop of Perth, who took part in the service of the consecration of Dr. Goe, last month, embarked March 11 by the EJkLS. Borne, which will be due at Albany April 19. His Excellency the Governor has been pleased to forward to Staff-Commander Coghlan, R.N., a letter formally thanking him and the officers under his command for the able, zealous and obliging manner ia which they have always carried oat their important duties. In reply StaffCom mander Coghlan has, on behalf of his officers and himself, gracefully acknow ledged the compliment. His Excellency the Governor has receiv ed a circular despatch from the Secretary of State for the Colonies, stating that the Lords of the Admiralty have agreed to place annually at the disposal of the Secretary of State, on behalf of the sons of Families settled in the principal Colonies, three nominations ' for Engineer student ships in Her Majesty's Dockyards. Partic ulars can be ascertained upon application to the Colonial Secretary. On Thursday evening last the many frirads of Mr. W. BL James invited that gentleman to a dinner, previous to his departure for England. The banquet was held at the Governor Broome Hotel, anil about forty persons sat down at the table. The catering was all that could be desired, the wines excellent, and the few speeches made were short and to the point. The company separated fct a late hour, after having enjoyed a most pleasant evening. ?

It may not be generally known that the surgeon of the Qlfated ship Kapunda was Dr. Bentham, who arrived at Fcemantte lastyearin medical charge of the emigrants who came out in the Helena Mena, and had only recently returned to England when be embarked on his fatal voyage. It seems the doctor did not wish to join the Kapunda, as he required rest, but as be was a man ef great geniality and experience he was press ed by the authorities at the office of the Crown Agents to go out again and yielded. A correspondent, writing from Freman tte, says:— In Messrs. T. & H. Carter & Co.'s store is exhibited a large vine leader or stem, two years old, very thickly laden with grapes, weighing quite 60 pounds. The fruit was grown by Mr. John Snook, and is an example of what the apparently sterile soil of Fremantte is capable of producing. A quantity of onions from the same garden are the largest and finest I have seen in the colony and entirely disprove the notion that Fremantte is but a heap of worthless sand. An announcement appears in our adver tising columas from the Fremantte Club requesting applications for the position of Secretary to that institution. This has been brought about, we team, owing to the present Secretary, Mr. Hughes, having leased the Emerald Isle Hotel, which ia abont to be thoroughly renovated and equip ped with the most modern improvements of the day. Judging from the state ef efficiency Mr. Hughes has placed the fre mantte Club, which undoubtedly owes its present highly satisfactory condition to his efforts, we can predict for the old Emerald Isle that successful future which its central position and extensive accommodation de mand. A curious little story was told me (writes the London correspondent of the Sheffield In dependent) illustrative of the snobbishness of London society and of the real kindness of heart in the family of the Prince of Wales. There is in London, an American dentist who is very skilful in his profession, and amongst other people has attended the Princess of Wales. He was invited to one of the minniJ garden parties at Marlborough House, and met there nearly 60 of his patients. They cut him to a man. Soon after he found himself face to face with the Prince and Princess, and they, at once gave him the most cordial reception and shook him warmly by the hand. At once every one of the 50 patients pressed up to tbe lucky dentist, and shook bands witliequal warmth. In our issue containing the intimation of the death, on Thursday, of one of the most prominent preachers our generation has seen — Henry Ward Beecher— it seems not inappropriate that we should give the words of the 'good-bye' to England ad dressed by hi''»lf and his wife on leaving its shores for New York. He said, 'And now we bid farewell to dear old Eng land, to bonnie Scotland, that we have loved from our earliest childhood, to rugged, quaint, delightful, homelike Wales, to their rich green fields, their steep, rocky moon tain sides, with 'sunny glades aad gentle slopes between,' and the generous, hospi table people whose memory will now be doubly dear to ua We gladly turn our faces homeward, but the gladness is temper ed with a little more heartache thanis com- fortable at leaving so much that is dear and most loveabte. We are indebted to this charming country and the dear friends we have found here for four months of great pleasure and happiness, and in saying fere well we leave sincere and loyal love behind, and from our heart we pray, ' God bless the British Ides.' ' At the Fremantte Police Court on Fri day, before Mr. £. Fairbairn, E.S., John Lee was charged with loitering about town without any visible means of support; he said he was a cigar maker bat could not get any work and was dismissed with a caution.— John Sheppard, charged with driving a horse and trap through the streete without lights, said he was leading the horse, bat the Beach said it made no differ ence and fined him 5s., and costs 8s. 6d. — William Stone, also charged with driving without lights, was fined in the same amount. — The Municipal Supervisor ap plied for the return of cost of summonses, &c, 5s., in the case of Edwd. Marsh, against u-bom an information had been laid f«r al lowing ahorse to wander about the streete; it appeared the summons had not been served, tWe bailiff not being able to find each a person, but the magistrate ordered the case to stand over, remarking that more care should be exercised by the pound keeper, otherwise he would be called upon to pay expenses. — Geo. Dennis, charged with druukenaea), was dismissed with a caution. ? Geo. fieeve, summoned foe driving with out lights, did not appear, but P.C. Koch having proved the offence a fine of Ss. and costs was inflicted.

Messrs. Parker and Parker, as well as Mr. James Lapsley, have been appointed vendors of internal revenue stamps. As at present arranged His Excellency the Governor and Lady Broome will leave Eottnest Island and return to Government House, Perth, on Monday, the 21st instant. Thursday next, the 17th inst, S. Patrick's Day, has been proclaimed a Bank holiday in Perth, Fremantte. York and Albany by bis Excellency the Governor. The total of the land revenue received this year up to test Monday week amounts to £49,52C 0s. 2d. The amount received from this KWiroe of revenue laat year was £17, ?2*7 15s. &L Last Saturday aiaeteen y«ars ago HJJ.H. the Duke of Edinburgh was shot in the back at Clontarf, near Sydney, N.S.W., by O'FarreU, who subsequently expiated his crime on the gallows.

We have received a number of papors published by Dr. J. Forbes Watson relative to the establishment of what he terms 'The So-called 'Imperial Institute,'' which we shall review upon another occa sion. Only one case occupied the attention' of the City Bench on Saturday last, when a pauper, named George Richardson, was sentenced to three months' imprisonment with haid labour for vagrancy. It was officially notified in the last issue of the Government Gazette that Mr. E. Wynne has been transferred from the Bail way department, to act as fourth cleric in the Postal and Telegraph department. Messrs. A. Forrest & Co. report having sold, on account of Messrs. Hamerstey & Simms, the junction station (situated in the Gascoyne district) with 4,600 sheep, and plant ata satisfactory price, to Mr. S. J. Phillips, of the Irwin. Upon the conclusion of the Brigade Parade, held upon the New Recreation Ground last Wednesday evening, the Guild ford corps (numbering sixty men) was taken by Capt. Gardner to the Boyal Hotel, where he regaled them with a substantial hot sup per at his own expense. A boy named Bates had a very narrow escape from a severe, if not a fatal, accident on Friday. A heavily-loaded dray was being drawn along Howick-steeet, and just as it came opposite the Convent the ted, in endeavouring to cross the road, slipped and fell right in front of one of the wheels. Fortunately the driver perceived what had occurred, and was able to stop the horse before the child's body was crushed under the wheeL A Fremantte correspondent says: — I notice that the Government are breaking np the road between the South Jetty plat form in the direction of the old Custom House, for the purpose, it is said, of laying down iron tails. It does not appear, how ever, that the sanction of the Corporation has been obtained, yet be it remembered that the ratepayers have paid large sums of money to make this road, and it is only proper they should insist upon their rights being respected, and the Council should not hesitate to enforce thiB. We have seen the engine that was smash ed some time since in the York railway cutting. It has been reconstructed by the Works department at Fremantte. A tender unowattached, which considerably increases its water-carrying capacity, it being able to hold sufficient to takea train as far as York without stopping. The vacuum break has also been added, with lubricator, cow and spark catchers. There is of course a great deal of new work done, which has been turned out in a most highly creditable manner by the department, under the superintendence of Mr. W. Mather, who is certainly a most energetic servant ef the Government. The cost of the work was estimated at £2000, white the actual cost has only been about .£750. Captain Mathias, of the basque Hamp shire, who has made himself very popular in this Colony, gave a [tarty on board bis vessel on Friday evening, to which he invited a number of frionds. The vessel was decsrated with bunting and brilliantly lighted with fancy lamps. There were also a number of mottoes very neatly executed, the prineipal one being, ' Health, Wealth, and Prosperity to AIL' The captain sent his gig and cutter, in charge of the officers of the ship, to the wharf for the invited guests, to convey them on board, when, after they had partaken of a most sump tuous dinner, Jhawntr commenced at 7 '30 p.m., which was kept up till midnight, when the company were invited to a dis play of rockets and other fireworks. A very rieasant evening having been spent the healths of the captain and officers were proposed with musical honours and most enthusiastically drunk in bumpers ; after which the guests took their departure, highly delighted with tbe pleasure of their trip- ? The Brigade Parade held test week on the new Recreation Ground was a genuine success. The weather was delightful, aad the full moon enabled the large body of spectators to watch the various manoeuvres with ease. The attendance of the Volun teers was good, as will be seen from the following parade report : — Authorised Total on strength, parade. Head-Quarters Staff 2 2 M. a V. corps ... 130 99 F. B. V. corps ... 120 87 G. B. V. corps ... 80 60 . As soon as the various corps arrived on the ground they marched past the staff in ex cellent order. The Commandant (Major Phillimore) and Major Sutherland then inspected the ranks, after which various batallion movements were executed, follow ed by manual firing and bayonet exercise. To these succeeded an advance in review order, a movement which was so credit ably performed that both the Commandant and Major Sutherland warmly compliment ed tbe men upon their success. The Volunteers then 'formed three sides of a square, when Miss Phillimore presented Priv. Gregg with a prize (a gold watch) be had won in a shooting match held test December. The three corps left the ground at a few minutes before ten o'clock. A copy of a handbill, which is duly issued from this office giving a precis of the con tents of each issue of the Daily Nswe, seems to have fallen into our City contem porary's hands, and has evidently excited that insignificant journal to a fit of perfect childish irrational fnry. In the handbill in question we say that the Daily News enjoys a circulation more than treble that of any other daily paper in Western Aus tralia, an assertion which has goaded our contemporary into a state of temporary insanity. Otherwise, how could the proudly self-styled organ of culture and refinement in this Colony have condescend ed to speak as follows : — ' We take this opportunity of branding the assertion as an absolute, direct and unqualified falsehood.' After in^nlging in some flowers of rhetoric, each as ' wilful mendataty,' &c, our self presumed courteous contemporary bravely challenges us ' to take the usual and pro per stops' to relieve ourselves ** from this most grievous accusation' ! We treat oar contemporary's frantic ravings as they deserve — with utter contempt ; though, at the same time, we must frankly acknow ledge they have afforded us unbounded amusement. ' Take steps,' forsooth ! to ' relieve' ourselves of Bucb a ' most griev ous accusation,' indeed! We fight pot with mere shadows, and we would remind our contemporary that it has no corporeal personality upon which condign chastise ment can be inflicted, any more than it has a, reputation to be damaged. For our part we shall not degrade ourselves to oar contemporary's low level by fceepmg it company on its favourite ground — the lists of slang. But if literary controversy in this Colony is to degenerate into mere jour nalistic vituperation, we shall in the name of common sense and as being ourselves unequal to fho task send direct to Billings gate for a champion worthy of ouroppca ent's bodkin, and thereby secure something racy and idiomatic in the etyle oar contem porary vainly tries to exeeL

! The Supreme Court sat in banco I this morning. For the third day in succession there -was a dean sheet at the Fretnantle Police Court on Firday morning.

The Albion Hotel has changed hands, ind last Saturday evening the new pro prietary invited a number of friends to a jripe supper, in order to celebrate the event. Phe viands and wines supplied were of such jualties as to redound to the credit of th* new proprietors, and the guests passed a rery enjoyable evening. Among the attractions in the City daring the forthcoming race meet of the W. A. furf Club a public ball, under the auspices -f the Union Cricket Club, will take place in the Town Hall in the evening of Thurs lay next — race day, as particularised in )ur advertising columns. : A serious accident happened last Thurs lay on the road between Northam and the local racecourse. A lad was riding to \he course, when a vehicle came into violent iollisioa with bis horse. The off-side shaft struck the unfortunate animal on the right side of the breast, completely tearing away the off shoulder from the body.

A licensed eab was being driven through the City, when the herse stum bled, fell, and overthrew the vehicle. The result was a general smash, and Mr. Uacklin (of Fremantte) who occupied a seat in the cab at the time, was so severe ly wounded by the broken window-glass as bo necessitate his immediate removal to the Hospital. A ''Mfa''g of tbe Committee of the W. &.. Turf Club was held test Saturday even ing, when the tender of Mr. J. Stuart (of the Governor Broome Hotel) was accepted For the right of holding the booth on the ground and supplying refreshments to the DCcupantB of the Grand Stand at the next race meeting, to be held on Thmsday next.

Ten pounds was offered for the right of collecting the gate money, bnt tbe committee decided to keep that in their own hands ; and a similar course was adopted with reference to th* running of the totalizator.
