Sydney, April 12

In the course of an interview to*day Lord Onslow said that he endeavored to arrange his departure for Hobart by the s.s. Cuzco, and there join the direct steamer for New Zealand. It was found, however, that the date upon which the direct steamer would reach Hobart was not suitable. Lord Onslow has positively decided that he and Lady Onslow leave by the Mariposa on the 17th for Auckland. After reaching Auckland their route to Wellington is uncertain. They do not relish the idea of travelling from Auckland to Wellington by the Hinemoa as they are both bad sailors. An alternative route from Auckland to Napier by the s.s. Waihora is open to them, and it has been suggested that they should then proceed overland from Napier to Petone at the head oj Wellington harbour, from whence a small steamer would convey them to Wellington wharf. The other alternative route is entirely overland from Auckland to Wellington. Mr Walrand, Lord Onslow's private secretary, leaves by the Tekapo on Monday for Wellington direct, and will arrange with Sir H, Atkinson as to the most desirable route for Lord Onslow to take. Lord Onslow made enquiries here as to the advisableness of purchasing horses m Australia, but was advised to make his purchases m New Zealand. This advice he has decided to accept. Lord Onslow was entertained to-day by the Masonic Lodges.
