News from Australia brought by the Te Anau, which arrived at the Bluff yesterday, states that Patrick James Kennedy, arrested in New Zealand for embezzlement, has been committed for trial.—J. E. Neall, herbalist, charged with causing the death of Margaret Smith, has been convicted of manslaughter.—The sale of the Erchildoune stud sheep realised L 9,300. From Sydney comes the news that the captain and crew of the Glimpse had only a keg of water, which proved to be salt, and some raw potatoes, upon which they subsisted for eight days. At length they hailed a passing steamer and were rescued. The men suffered terrible privations in an open boat, principally from thirst.— Peter Marshall died at Pyrmont of smallpox, and another case has been reported from the same locality. The fatal epidemic at Kangaroo ground is said to be much exaggerated, and is pronounced to be a form of typhoid fever of an aggravated type.—Some Temora reefs are yielding well. At Copland’s claim 100 ounces to the ton are reported to have been obtained.

From Cape Town, the Te Anau brings the news that on the 6th of October Sir Evelyn Wood opened the second session of the ninth Council at Natal, and referring to the Transvaal, said he trusted that the British, Dutch, and also the colored inhabitants would prosper, and that all heartburnings caused by recent events might die out. The progress of the colony of Natal during the year 1880 was remarkable, although the events early in the year somewhat checked the advance. Yet it is hoped there will be no serious retrogression. In the course of his speech his Excellency passed high encomiums on the services of the late Governor (Sir George Colley.)—Walker, the well-known emigration agent, is about proceeding to England and -Scotland, empowered by the Government to make terms assisting agricultural families to come out here. The weather remains splendid, and the harvest prospects all over the colony are now brilliant.
