The Salacia has been, one hundred and fifty-eight days on the passage from the Downs, the extraordinary length of which is to be accounted for by her having met with a series of contrary winds (as shown by the log-book) between the Cape of Good Hope and Cape Otway. She ha9 not spoken any
vessels connected with these colonies.

The William Hill has been fourteen days on the passace from Adelaide, having met with very adverse winds until making Cape Howe. The brig Dauntless and schooner Isabella were to sail from Adelaide for Sydney, with copper ore, on the 6th instant. The brig Hero was also expected to come on to Sydney. The ship Bolton was to sail tor Bombay on the Gth instant. By the Hero intelligence had been received at Adelaide from Singapore to the 3rd March, and from China to the middle of February. The H.C. steamer Auckland arrived at Hongkong on the 10th February, with detachments of the East India Company's Artillery from Penang, forwarded at the urgent request of Sir John Davis, but was immediately ordered back, all disputes having been settled at Canton without an appeal to arms. The H.C. steamer Tenasserim arrived at Singapore on the 28th of February, in nine days from Madras, with 2G5 rank and nie of the 25th regiment, destined for China, but Sir John Davis having countermanded the despatch of troops and vessels of war previous to her arrival, she was not expected to proceed further. When the Tenasserim left Madras, it was confidently reported that the H. C. steamer Bentinck was taken up by the Ben- gal, government to convey the ISth Royal Irish from Calcutta to Hongkong. The H.C.
steamer Enterprise, left Madras for Canna- . nore on the 17th Feb., with a portion of the 94th regiment, and on her arrival there was to take on board the remainder of the left wing of the 25th regiment, and proceed to
The Victoria has been eighty days on the passnge from Manila, having met with ex- ceedingly bad weather during the voyage, especially off Cape Lewin, and off Cape Howe, on Thursday last. Her cargo con- sists of about 500 tons sugar, 30 cases cigars, and 300 coils rope, consigned to Flower, Salting, and Co. The brig Regia was to sail from Manila for Sydney on the 3rd, and the barque Sea Nymph o:i the 8th March. The brig Richard and William was to sail for Port Phillip and Sydney about the same time as the latter vessel.
The Princess Royal has made an excellent voyage to and from China and Manila, hav- ing completed it in four and a half months. The barque Baboo, hence the 27 th November, arrived al Shanghai on the 19th December. The Joseph Somes, hence the 4th November, arrived at Hongkong on the 4th January, and sailed again for Bombay on the 26th Feb- ruary. The Saghalien1 from New Zealand, arrived at Hongkong on the 12th, and the Sir George Seymour, from Auckland, on tbo
18lh February. The Alfred, Napper, hence via Anatam, arrived at Hongkong on the 20th February, and after remaining there seven days, proceeded to Manila, from which port she was to sail for Sydney the same day as the Princess Royal. The brig Regia, sailed from Manila for Sydney on the 3rd March ; the Richard and William for Port Phillip on the 8th, and the barque Sea Nymph for Sydney on the 15th March. The barque Fanny Fisher, hence via New Zealand, arrived on the 13th March, and was loading again for Sydiipy, when the Princess Royal sailed. Freights for England, at China and Manila, were from £4 to £4 10s. per to», and likely to decline.
OFFICERS' SALARIES.-A case of some im- portance is now under the consideration of the government. Undera local »t.itute the sheriff has power to sell a cho»e in action, and availing himself of this power a creditor who had judgment against a civil officer called on the sheriff on the 1st instant to sell the month's salary which was that day due to the debtor, the usual notice being given to the Commissariat not to pay over the money, which notice, we are informed, was disre- garded, the Deputy Commissary-General not recognising the sheriff's right lo interfere. The salary (£50) was, however, offered (or s-ile by the sheriff and bought for £20. The question now is, can the sheriff, h a vin ¡r given the Doputy Commissary-General no1 ice not to pay the money to Hie défendant, compel that officer to pay it lo Hie purchaser. The case is under the consideration of the crown Jaw officers, who, we are informed, have doubts upon the matter, and it is probable that it will he brought before the Supreme Court for a judicial deoision, the point being a most important one lo the numerous per- sons receiving official pay, ami to another equally numerous class-those to whom (hose persons are indebted. - Herald, May 22.
UNFORTUNATE CASE.-Mr. Gill, Hie hotel kpeper of Pitt-»treot, is in custody of the Parramatta police for having yesterday dis- charged a pistol at Mr. John Kinchela, of Bathurst. From what has transpired, it appears that n daughter of Mr. Gill's having eloped with Mr. Kinchela, her father pur- sued them, and coining up with Mr. K. at Cutt's Inn, on the Parramatta-road, fired at him, but failing in bitting him, was about discharging^ second pistol, when ii wa» taken from him, and he was secured. - Herald, May 22.
TALLow.*-Mr. Rickards on Saturday sold Ihrpe tons tallow, fair simple, at the rale of £29 5s. per ton. - Herald, May 22.
STOCK SALE.-Mr. Lyons on Saturday sold 146 head of bullocks at the cattle market; ruine of the animals were of heavy weight, and whilst some were in fair comliiion others were rather poor. The average price realised was £1 Gs. per head. - Herald, May 22.
