Her Majesty's Brigantine Pandora on leaving Auckland proceeded to the Northern ports to corry on hir surve)ing operations. She lias now surveyed the river Awanua, Aboaro, and Paringaringa, and sailed round the Three King 9; sounding in and out around them. She proceeded to Hokianga, where she arrived on the 81 b instant. Having surveyed the bar she sailed again on the 13th for Kaipara at which place she arrived last Monday, where she is now lying. She encountered bad weather during her cruize at the North. Captain IJrury and Mr. Simmons have arrived here overland, and are at present in Auckland. The American whaling ship Lion, of Providence, Rhode Island, Captain Nichols, is out 24 months, and has on board 900 barrels sperm oil, the greater part caught near the Equator, where she has been chiefly' cruibing. Sbe lately called at Upolo, and there took on board about 30 barrels cocoa-nut oil. This is, we understand Captain Nichols fiist vitit to Auckland, although during the last sixteen years he has been engaged in the whale fishery off the coast of New Zealand. Hitherto be has generally recruited at the Bay of Islands ; but when cruising on the Equator, about five weeks ago, he spoke the whale ship Enterprise, of Nantucket, Capt. Swaine, who recommended Auckland so strongly as the most suitable port for obtaining supplies, that Copt. Nichols decided upon proceeding to our port, on making the const. Capt. Swaine's continued recommendntions of Auckland as a recruiting port, are additional testimonies to the facilities it affords for that purpose, which only lequire to be made better known to make them more generally availed of. Wo i egret to have to, mention, in connection with this arrival, a very unjustifiable proceeding on the part of the master of a coasting schooner who having boarded the Lion on her passage up the gulf reported to Capt. Nichols that it was an expensive port to call at, and that pilotage was charged at the rate of 15s. per foot, he ofluring meanwhile to pilot the Lion up to the pilot station for a sum of £5. Such proceedings as these ought to be nairowly watched, both by the Government authorities and tfcfe community at large, as their influence cannot he otherwise than prejudicial to the interest of the port, which in every sen be may be declared in common with the other ports of the colony — a free one — with abundance of fresh provisions, at cheaper raies than they are to be had even on the coast, and now with the Customs Duties abolished on all the chief articles of Ship Stores they also can be had at a more reasonable rate here than in any other port in the colony. Captain Nichols reports the following vessels spoken near the Equator:— Dec 20. Emily Morgan, of New Bedford, with 550 barrels sperm; Hector, of New Bedford, with 2300 barrels speim ; BeH, of Fairhaven, with 180 berrels sperm ; Brighton, of New Bedford, with 650 barrels whale. Jan. 2. Schooner Supply, of Sydney, with 26 tuns cocoa nut oil, bound to Pitts Island — island then in sight. 10. Enterprise, Ntntucket, with 450 barrels sperm. Heard from the Phocion, of New Bedford, with 1250 bairels sperm. Feb. 15. London Packet, of Sydney, with 350 barrels sperm. We are glad to learn of Captain Swainn's recent success in the Enterprise, since proceeding southward ; his last report at Lahiana, on his return from the Arctic Sea, having been rather unfavourable. Th© Moa arrived on Wednesday afternoon after a pn§>age of fifteen days from Sydney. The biig Raven was to follow in about ten days and the Ilioraama in about three days after the Moa. The Raven's delay at Sydney has been chiefly in consequence of it having been found necessary to place her on the patent slip for examination and lepair. The Daniel Webster arrived at Sydney from Monganui on the 30th ult. The Moas sheep and horses have arrived in good condition. By advices leceived per Moa, we learn of the safe arrival, hence, of the barque Glencoe, dipt. Lillewall, at Shanghae, on the 16th of November, after a passage of 65 days. She had discharged her cargo of timber, and being ready to load for this port direct, may now be shortly expected.

Report per clipper ship Queen of Sheba from California, out 46 days, four of which she lay in the Island of Upolu, wherce she sailed on ihe 14th December :—: — Experienced very light winds during the passage, only a few days S.E. Irades, during one of which she ran 306 milea ; lost one abld seaman, Alexander Leit, off the fore yard ; one steearge passenger , William Warring, died at sea. Reports worthy of belief were currently c rculated in San Francisco, that immense quantities of gold weie being found by the natives on Qupen Charlotte's Island, lying to the northward of Vancouver's ; the island is a possession of the British Crown; speculators were directing their attention in that quarter, and should confimiatory intelligence be received, a rush would no doubt take place from Oregon and San Francisco. There were no vessels in Apia harbour when the Queen of Sheba sailed, t lie natives all quiet and recultivating the lands ; a horse belonging to the British Consul had been wantonly speared a short time since ; a visit from a British man-of-war is much required, none having, visited that port lately. The Master of the Q. S. recommends Upolu 83 a convenient I half-way port for California, ships standing in need of I refreshments, and also as a good coaling depot for the Pacific steamers, which, in his opinion, will one day carry the Rritith and Australian mails, via San FianCisco, to Sydney. — Sydney Heiald, Jnn 5. , , Letters were received in town yesterday via Adelaide, from H.M.S. Havannah, dated Riojaneiio, 17th October. The Havannah sailed from Sydney August 18th, passed through Coot's Straits on the 2jth, was off" the wpstern entrance of Magellan Straits the 17th September ; aachoied at Port F»mine for two days, for the purpose of rating the Acheron's surveying chronometers, and having to anchor at different places did not clear the Straits until the 26th. She arrived at Rio on the 12th of October, and sent all her mails on by the mail steamer, which would arrive in England by the 12th of November, being eighty-six days from their despatch from Sydney. The Havannah expected to get ,home about the Ist of December. All hands were well. The Emma Eugenia, Irom Sydney July 14th, was lying at Rio, lefitting, having experienced very rough weather off Cape Horn, in which she carried away bulwarks, &c. H.M.S, Fly, from Auckland via the Falkland islands, had arrived at Rio, having made a very fine run from the former port of forty-three days. —76. Jan. 20. The cutter Wave U 55 days from Waimea (Sandwich Islands) and touched at the islands of Peiu, Rotuma, and Anatam ; she wns cautioned against calling at Tanna, as a dispute was said to havu arisen between Captain White of the Cameo, and one of the principal chiefs, which ended in Captain White stabbing the chief aod killing him; the natives in retaliation had taken the lives of two white men who had been for some time on the island collecting sandal wood. The quarrel is said to hnve originated in the refusal of the

chief to allo.v the crew of the CaniPO to l.md, and when Captain V\ liitc attempted to do so, the chief struck him. ■—Ih. Jan. 2(5.
