Dr. Power's report stated that the musical class was already under instruction, and the instruments had arrived. He had to inform the governors of the escape of a patient named Tim Sullivan, which had occurred on the 15th ult. whilst at agricultural work on the farm. The consideration of the arrangements for the future and permanent working of the Turkish bath should be well weighed, and the advantage of employing their own staff not too easily given up. A deputation of two from the county Grand Jury had made their inspection and report and appeared quite satisfied.
The business of the board was unimportant.
| LONDONDERRY, TUESDAY.The North American, from Quebec on 3d inst., has arrived. She brings £30,890 in specie. The Fulton had arrived out. Passed steamers United Kingdom, Anglo-Saxon, and Bohemian. The Canadian s.s. Norwegian, which left Liverpool on the 18th and Derry on the 19th ult., passed Farther Point on the evening of 3d inst. On the morning of 29th ult., owing to a thick fog, she struck on a reef of rocks 36 miles S.E. of the north point of Anticosti. A large portion of the cargo was thrown overboard. She was afloat aft all of the time. On the 2nd inst., the passengers were put on board the United Kingdom. On the same night the Norwegian came off undamaged and proceeded to Quebec, but owing to light head winds had not yet arrived. The mails were put on board a schooner on the 31st. The United Kingdom was expected at Farther Point to-night. American politics unimportant. Canadian crops reported satisfactory.|

THE INDIAN ARMIES.
| The Gazette publishes a table of the rate of annuities to be offered to field officers of the Indian armies, now unemployed on retirement, in addition to the pensions which they are entitled to. The amount of lieutenant-colonels of cavalry varies from £250 to £550, and the others in proportion. If the number of field officers retiring on the terms now offered fall short of 300, annuities of £120 will be offered to regimental captains to make up that number. Another notice in last night's Gazette states that officers returning to India will obtain employment.|
