Melboubnb, August 27, The •• Argus " correspondent at the New Hebrides says*— "M. Chevilliana, President of the new Commune of Pranceville, Noumea, says the Australians are not content with a newspaper war against French enterprise m the New Hebrides, but are raising powerful Companies for the express purpose of disputing tbe French preponderance m those islands. The creation of French municipalities m the New Hebrides is a most efficacious method of preserving the situation conquered with so much difficulty. We intend to show our adversaries that we aie able to organise one of those self-governments of which they are so proud. Even our own compatriots agree we are incapable of colonising, but we will prove what a few French colonists can do by union. The Noumea Council voted 1000 francs towards the expense of erecting a town hall at Franceville." The '-Daily Telegraph" says tbat while the group is of no intrinsio value, France has chosen to play an evil part m the Pacific. The extension of her m - fluence is to its fullest extent a menace to Australasia, and means a larger field for the transportation of her criminals, The "Argus" says the alarm m New South Wales at the influx of criminals into that colony ought to induce her to co operate with Viotoria to maintain the integrity of the New Hebrides
