S. S. Australia.)
THE AUSTKAUAN MAILS.
The San Francisco Chronicle of
December 30th says : The steamer
Australia, which will sail to-morrow,
will carry mails to Honolulu,
New Zealand and Sydney. The
vessel is owned by Pierce & Sons of
Glasgow, and the Pacific Mail Com
pany, as agents for the owners,
made a tender to carry the mails as
stated. The offer was accepted by
the Government. This does not
interfere with the contract with the
Union Line, as tho Government has
the right to send mail whenever the
opportunity occurs, to such places
us the Fiji Islands, Alaska, etc.
The Union Line has only a con
tract for the through British mail.
Tho vessel taking the mail without
a contract gets sea postage, or six
cents a letter. The Australia will
not carry any mail to the Samoan
Islands, nnd the mail to New Zeal
and will go by way of Sydney. The
Government will send mail on the
Australia, because some days will
be gained before the Union Lino
steamer, which will sail on January
lGth, will reach its destination.
Following is the letter from
Washington, announcing the ar
rangement to Postmaster Backus of
San Francisco :
Office of Foreign Mails, J
Sin: The Pacific Mull Steamship
Company, as agents, having teudcicd
for conveyance of mails the steamer
Australia, to sail from San Francisco
for Sydney, New South Wales, via
Honolulu on the 28th inst., I have to
Inform you that Uio Postmaster-General
has accepted the tender and directs that
malls tor the Hawaiian Kingdom and
the Australian Colonies ho dispatched
by said steamer. I am very respect
fully your obedient servant,

From present indication the oppo
sition to Sydney is likely to continue.
The Zealandia is already on her
way up, being due here January
20th, and will sail hence on her re
turn January 26th. The steamer
Australia, which sails this afternoon
for Sydney, has a heavy load for
Honolulu and quite heavy ship
ments for Sydney. S. F. Call,
San Francisco was shaken up by
a heavy earthquake shock at 9 :4G
o'clock on the morning of the 30th.
There was a slight tremor, follow cd
by a general upheaval of 6 seconds,
causing buildings to rock and
strain and waves to roll in tho Bay.
An amusing incident is related of a
marriage interrupted in the City
Hnll by the earthquake. The Deputy
Clerk was making out the license,
and had asked the bride's age, when
the shock came. "Twenty oh, an
earthquake!" the young lady
shrieked, and lied from the hall ac
companied by her intended.
The trial is proceeding of the
dynamiters, Wcisman, Mittlestadt
and Koosher, in San Francisco.
Tho Passenger Agents' Associa
tion collapsed through disagreement
of its members. Henceforth ngents

There are uuauthenticated rumors
that the Canadian Pacific Railway
Company will put a line of steamers
from Port Moody to San Francisco,
San Diego and way ports.
The Northern Pacific Railway
people are preparing to fight the
proposed extension of the Canadian
Pacific branch across the "boundary
to "Centpn, Montana. It is urged
that no American road is ullowed to
cross into Canaljan territory, n
special provision ' of this nature
having been tmq(jc to prolect tho
Canadian Pacific from immediate
competition K .. ,.
Over $4,000,000 in English sov
ereigns have been received at the
San Francisco Mint within four
Jliontbs, and arc being coined into
American money of various denominations.
Tflcomn, Washington Territory,
is pointed out ns an example of tho
boneflolnl results of Chinese expul
sion. Since the Chinese were sum
marily driven out of there, white
wo.'kmen formerly kept in compul
sory idleness have employment, and
business benefits by tho circulation
of money that hitherto had, to a
large extent, been sent nwny by
the Chinese earning it.
People of San Buenaventura in
dignantly deny the imputation cast
upon them by tho Chinese Minister,
that Chinamen in that town were
afraid of their lives. The antl
Chincso society only proposes to
boycott the Chinese by leaving
them severely alone and employing
white labor instead. No threat of
violence has ever been uttered, and
mob rule would be stamped out at

The marriage contract between
the late Senator Sharon and Sarah
Althea Hill has been pronounced a
forgery by tho United States Cir
cuit Court, and the defendant has
been made liable to produce the in
strument, if required, for cancella
tion. Scen companies of the Eighth
Infantry and two troops of the
Second Cavalry have been ordered
to Arizona, from the Presidio, San
Francisco, for the protection of
settlers against the Indians, and the
subjugation of the latter.
The President has approved the
bills granting pensions to Mrs. Grant
nnd relieving the political disabilities
of Gen. Lawton of Gcoigia.
A comparison with previous years
will show that since the great in
crease in business, which commenced
last June, there has been more iron

John Teenier, the oarsman, has
entered inno an agreement with
Reginald Laidlcy of Sydney, Aus
tralia, to visit that country next
spring and row two races with
Beach. Laidlcy promises him a
royal reception, innumerable pres
ents and immense winnings.
It was expected the national debt
would have been increased $2,000,
000 in December, owing to light re
ceipts and considerable pension pay
ments. The sinking fund requires
$18,000,000 for the current fiscal
year, and the first of a scries of
bond calls has been made of $10,
000,000. The wheat crop for tho past year
shows a decrease of 30 percent, but
only 17 percent in valuation. There
is a decrease of $5,000,000 in the
value of the corn crop.
The English Cabinet is reported
to have reached a decision on tho
tariff question. A bill will be pre
pared for introduction into Parlia
ment authorizing the imposition of
duties on imports into Great Britain
from countries imposing duties on
imports from Great Britain. Tho
measure will be founded on the ro-
port of Lord Iddesleigh's Commis
sion on Trade, which finds, first,
that English depression is. due,
primarily, to foreign competition.
Lord Randolph Churchill is en
gaged in framing a modified scheme
regarding Ireland, with the consent
of his colleagues in the Cabinet. It
is said the breach between Conser
vatives and Parnellites is more ap
parent than real, and that at the
bottom the personal understanding
between Churchill and Parnell is as
good as ever. Gladstone still pre
serves reticence as to the details of
his modified measure, but it is un
derstood that he and his supporters
in tho matter only differ as to
whether there shall be one or two
branches in the local legislature of
Earl Spencer, Earl Cowper, Lord
Hartington, Sir William Harcourt
and Lord Derby are said to definitely
refuse to support in Parliament any
scheme, and their acquiescence on a
lesser measure is distinctly limited to
an understanding that its necessity
will be demonstrated by the coming
debates in Parliament. It is as
serted that Gladstone is the only
.Liberal leader prepared to act up to
the programme of tho north coun
try Radicals. The situation is not
promising for an Irish Parliament
by peaceful means. Gladstone's
pledged majority includes the Na
tionalist vote on the understanding
that concessions are to be mado
which Gladstone's colleagues will
Gcorgo O. Trevelyan, formerly
Chief Secretary for Ireland, in a
speech at Stratford, said that thcro
could be 'no halfway between the
complete separation of Ireland and
absolute imperial control. Unless
it was intended to keep the care of
law and order in tho hands of tho
central government, it would bo
better to repeal tho union act.,
Tho Parnellites havo offset the
Orango manifesto of Dec. 21st,
appealing to religious prejudices, by
securing tho outspoken adherenceof
several Protestant clergymen to the
home rule cause.

The British Government has in

Prince Alexander of Bulgaria re
ceived a grand reception on enter
ing Sophia on the 20th. He is ' to

Tiicrc is a close alliance between
Russia nud Bulgaria, which points
to a Russian campaign in the spring
and the final dismemberment of the
Turkish Empire. A motion for the

by Count Corti, the Italian em

Queen Christina was sworn in as
Regent before the Cortes on Dec.
30th. The streets through which
the royal pageant passed were lined

Queen entered the chamber, and
several Indies in her Majesty's suite
began to weep.

President Grevy has been re
elected by the joint vote of the
Senate and Chamber of Deputies
acting a? the National Assembly, his
total majority being 135. Tho Ger
man press hails with pleasure tho
announcement of Grevy'a re-election,
regarding it as an assurance of
peace between France and Germany.
On Dec. 29th Premier Brisson
tendered the resignation of tho
whole Cabinet, on tho grounds that
he wanted a year's rest, the Govern
ment's majority on the Tonquin
credit was too small, and the result
of the Paris elections was discour
aging. The President accepted the
resignation, and sent for M. do
Freycinet to form a new Cabinet.
It was expected De Freycinet would
hold, besides the Premiership, the
Foreign and Colonial portfolios, and
would organize protectorates over
Tonquin and Madagascar.
The French Government will send
a state engineer to China to investi

Great excitement prevails in tho
State of Colima, Mexico, over an
eruption of the volcano of Colima.
There was a revolution in the
State of Tamaulipas, Mexico, tho
last of December. Federal forces
had been leaving Nuevo Laredo for
the interior, and several of tho re
volutionary leaders wero in that city,
closely watched by the authorities.
Tho Mayor of Laredo, Texas, pro
posed to disperse Mexicans preparing
to raid Mier, or to force them to
leave American territory, in order
to prevent a breach of the neutrality
laws between tho two countries.
A general election has been de
cided upon in the Dominion, owing
to the serious disaffection of the
French-Canndians toward the Gov
ernment on account of Riel's execu
tion. Parliament will bo dissolved
as soon as tho Premier, Sir John
Macdonald, returns from England.
Bishop Fabre's reference to the
Riel agitators in their attompt to
raise a revolt against the authority
of the state, and to the political use
mndo of tho church in tho cclcbri-
tlon of masses for the dead robel,
has stung tho Frenoh-Canadians to
tho very quick, and many of tho
bishop's most intimate friends seem
to think he has made a mistake.
The Orange and Green have re
sumed hostilities about Conception
Bay, Newfoundland. On Dec. 29th
an Orange mob attacked two of tho
men released from Rivcrhead and
fatally wounded them. There was
great excitement in Harbor Grace.

and a riot was anticipated.
The Executive has issued a pro
clamation forbidding an Orange pro
cession in Harbor Grnco or other
parts of Conception Bay.
Sir Ambrose Shea has been ap
pointed Governor of Newfoundland,
being the first native aud Catholic
