Notice to Mariners.-His Excellency the Governor has directed the publication, for general information, of the following letter from Captain 'Owen Stanley, of her Majesty's surveying ship Rattlesnake, respecting his recent examination of the Louisade Archipelago and south-east coast of New Guinea :-" H.M. surveying ship Rattlesnake, at Sydney, 11th Feb., 1850. Sir-I beg leave to inform you that I have recently returned from an exami- nation of the Louisade Archipelago and south- east coast of New Guinea, and that during the survey a clear channel of at least thirty miles wide has been surveyed, extending from the easternmost end of the Louisade to Cape Pos- session, the point where Captain Blackwoods work terminated. The coast of New Guinea does not appear to afford any opening for trade, as the only article of commerce seen during our stay on the coast was a small quantity of tor toiseshell of inferior quality, and the natives were so numerous and of such treacherous and
warlike dispositions, that it would be highly dangerous tor any trading vessel to attempt to communicate with them.-I have, &c, OwrEN Stanley, Captain. The Honorable E- Deas Thomson, Colonial Secretary."

o'clock in the morning, promising to return in an hour, but she had not done so. She had promised the previous evening to sell her furni- ture to find funds for paying counsel's fees, &c, as he had not yet received a shilling for his professional services. However, at eight o'clock this morning both the lady and the furniture were gone. A bench warrant for her appre- hension was ordered to issue, and her bailre ouired to be in attendance at a later period of tne day.-Begi Charley, an aboriginal native, was indicted for having feloniously killed a heifer, at the M'Leay River, the property of the Bank of Australasia, with the intention of steal- ing a part of the carcase, in July last.
