POTATO DISEASE—GOVERNMENT INQUIRY.
| The Government Commissioners, have issued a new set of
queries, from which one of the principal questions contained in the first list
has been excluded. This query was to the effect— “What measures would you
suggest as remedies for the distress?” The answer supplied in a vast number of
cases was —“Repeal of the Union and REPEAL OF THE CORN
LAWS.” Those replies were, of course, forwarded to
Dublin Castle for the information of government. The result was the cancelling
of the first set of queries, and the issue of a new printed form of
interrogatories, from which the question as to remedies for distress was omitted
altogether. I shall confine myself to the mention of the facts, leaving you to
draw your own inferences. —Morning Chronicle Correspondent.
| We are sorry to hear that the City of Shiraz, Captain
Marrat, which left Whampoa for Bombay on the 14th July last, has been totally
lost in the Mindora sea off the Isle de Negros. Only three Lascars escaped, who
found their way to Manila, from whence the news has arrived to-day. We have
heard no further particulars. The City of Shiraz was a beautiful new clipper,
and having made her first voyage to China was returning to Bombay. We believe
that competent judges here considered her greatly overmasted.—Hong Kong
