The Broken Cables.
— ♦ [I'EK. I'KESS ASSOCIATION.] Adelaide, July 13. Owing to the break in the cables, instructions have been sent to the lighthouses and signal stations in the Gulf of St. Vincent to keep a sharp look-out and signal incoming vessels promptly. Melbourne, July 13. The defence authorities are on the alert in consequence of the cable interruptions. The Cerberus has been ordered to proceed to the Heads, and the torpedo boats are in readiness. No alarm is felt, but this action, is taken merely as a precautionary measure, combined with drill.
