( Renter's ) Sydney, Dec. 21. Arrived—Torres Straits mail steamer at Cooktown.
The barque Adelphoi lias been wrecked at Port Hackling. The crew were all saved. She was insured for L2OOO in the New Zealand Insurance Company. Of the two Chinamen discovered in a suburb of Sydney afflicted with leprosy one was poisoned, and is supposed to have committed suicide. The other was taken away late on Saturday night to La Perquse, close to the landing place of the New Zealand cable, and put in a tent near the beach. This is a favorite picnic ground, and great indignation has been also manifested by the cable and Custom House people. A strong remonstance has been sent to the Premier. This action means the absolute isolation of the cable state, ahd will possibly affect telegraphic communication with New Zealand. It is hoped that the New Zealand Government I wifi remonstrate with Sydney. Great . alarm is felt, as the disease is of a most 1 loathsome form.
