[per reuter’s agency.] Sentence in the Ferret CasesMelbourne, July 23. Judgment in the Ferret prosecution was delivered to-day. Henderson, the reputed owner, and Wallace, the purser, have each been sentenced to seven years’ imprisonment; and Wright, the captain, to three and a half years. Admiral Clanwilliam. * Sydney, July 24. Admiral Earl Clanwilliam is now better. The squadron will not, however, leave for Auckland before Tuesday next, and its departure may probably be further postponed to allow of time for the Bacchante to come on from Melbourne. Further Cases of Small Pox. Sydney, To-day. Two more cases of small pox are reported to-day. The sufferers live in the vicinity of Sussex street, where the disease has previously appeared. Two supposed cases of small pox at Burwood are now proved to be only chicken pox. The Detached Squadron. Further information tends to confirm the probability of the squadron awaiting the arrival of the Bacchante before leaving for Auckland. The Bacchante is now expected to leave Melbourne for Sydney on Wednesday next. Not Small-pox. Brisbane, July 23. After further examination of the three children resident in South Brisbane, the doctors have pronounced their cases not to be small-pox. The house, however, in which they live is to be kept isolated until all doubt as to the nature of their sickness is removed.
