POST OFFICE NOTICE. - MAILS OUTWARDS. - It is no- tified at the General Post Office that mails will be made up for the undermentioned places, closing as follows :-Blackwall, for London, 29th, inst., 5.30 p.m.; Yarra Yarra, for Sydney, this day, 12.45 p.m. ; Ocean Chief, for Liverpool, this day, 11.45 a.m. ; Black Swan, for Launceston, 29th inst., 12.45 p.m.
OCEAN CHIEF AND BLACKWALL. - We notice that the former of these favorites of the Australian fleet, has been detained until Sunday morning, consequent upon the interruption of business by the general
Both these vessels will, therefore, sail on Sunday morning, and an interesting race will be the con secquence, as, no doubt, both captains will do their
utmost to deliver their gold and mails first, and the result will be looked for here with much interest.
Last year a similar race occurred between the
Lightning and Blackwall, as they sailed from Port Phillip Heads together on the 28th December, the re- | suit was in favor of the Lightning, as she arrived here some thirty-five days before the Blackwall, the latter vessel having made a long passage. The Lightning is probably, at this time, about sailing again from Liverpool, as she left this port with a full cargo, on
the 27th August last.
THE ABSCONDING SAILORS. - Two of the absconding crew from the Day Spring have been captured by the Mounted Police. They had engaged themselves at
some work on shore, near the Surrey river. Nine sailors for the General Hewitt have been engaged in Melbourne, and sent down by last steamer. Yesterday a constable was put on board the General Hewitt, to prevent any desertion from the vessel by the new
hands, the Captain not having yet come down, he being detained in Melbourne to engage more seamen.
- Portland Guardian.
The barque John Williams will, we understand, be detained here for about a fortnight, in order to under- go the repairs necessary in consequence of damage sustained in a heavy gale on the 9th of October last. She has had a rather boisterous passage, and has lost her bowsprit, davit, boat, sprit-sail yard, and jib boom. This vessel is the property of the London Missionary Society, and was built about ten years ago from a fund raised by the collections of children chiefly in connection with their schools, and has tra versed these seas on former occasions in furtherance of the objects aimed at by the society. On her present voyage she left London July 23rd, calling at the Cape of Good Hope, from which place she sailed on the 7th of October, and arrived at Hobart Town on Sunday 16th inst. Hence she will proceed to Melbourne, Sydney, and Polynesia, and in all probability will not
revisit Europe for four or five years. We hear that during her stay in this port public meetings will be called to elicit the sympathies of this community in the causes of Christian missions. Shortly before her
reaching the Cape of Good Hope a seaman committed suicide by throwing himself overboard, it is supposed
in a fit of insanity. The only vessel reported by the John Williams is the Sutledge, bound for India, which left the Cape in her company on the 7th ult. - Tas- mania Daily News, 20th November.
