The Fire — Advices from Sydney — Arrival of the Steamer Mikado
San Francisco, August 30.
. . . News from Sydney by the steamer Mikado, which arrived this morning, is of little interest. H. H. Hall, agent of the line, came on the steamer with his family, and will remain here till all the financial matters of the company are arranged. The steamer made a quick passage, and brought quite a full cargo.

The Australian Line
Telegrams were received yesterday, announcing that the Government of New South Wales had chartered the steamers Mikado and Macgregor to ply between Sydney and this port, and giving the management of the line to the Australasian Steam Navigation Company. The English mails arrived last night, and the Cyphrenes sails today at noon.

Arrival of the Mikado— Japan News—The Cypherus Overdue.
San Francisco, May 21st.
The Mikado to-day brings Honolulu dates to May 9th.
The Legislature was opened on the 13th of April in presence of about 1,000 people. The King delivered an address. He said the resources of the country had been largely depleted by an extraordinary expenditure necessary for the removal of lepers to Molokai, the burial of two sovereigns and the election of their successors. He favors a commercial treaty with the United States, but deprecates any cession of terrritory to us. He favors the furnishing of facilities for steam navigation with San Francisco and Australia, and recommends a commission of learned men to codify the laws.
The Legislature defeated the proposed amendment to the Constitution separating the houses. This measure was advanced by Lunalilo, who hoped to thereby restore the Constitution of 1852.
The Cyphernes, from Australia, was overdue at Honolulu, and is overdue here, aud the belief is general that she has met with some accident. Sbe is about twelve days overdue here.
|The Escape of Henri de Rochefort (1831-1915)
Parisian Victor Henri Rochefort-Luçay, better known by the name of Henri Rochefort, was a journalist, playwright and politician. In the pages of La Lanterne, La Marseillaise, and Intransigeant, he defended contrasting policy options favorable to the Commune which earned him the nickname of “the man the twenty duels and thirty trials”, and sentences, including prison at Noumea. He escaped in 1874.

The Australian Steamer
The steamer Mikado is advertised to sail on Saturday, at 10 a.m., if the London mails for Australia are received by that time. It is believed the baggage of the intending passengers will not arrive in time, on account of the difficulty in transferring at Green River, in which case it is reasonable to suppose there will be a further delay. Still, the agents say Saturday, and shippers and passengers will act wisely in being prepared.

Norfolk Island Pine Trees
These trees, by their peculiar foliage, are much cultivated in the gardens of both city and country. They are an evergreen, and grow luxuriously on on this peninsula. Mr. Z. W. Moore, stall No. 37, 38 adn 39 California Market, sent to Australia for a supply, and received by the Mikado an invoice of two hundred fine young trees in pots. They are a year old and well rooted. This is the season of the year to plant them.

From San Francisco— The Steamer Los Angeles —The Salvador— The Mikado and City of San Francisco — The Suit of Captain Lilndell.
San Francisco, December 9th.
The prevailing interest in this city for several days past seems to be confined to nautical matters. The probable fate of the Los Angeles is discussed in all its bearings, with the verdict generally leaning towards the theory of her loss. A man who was employed on her is reported to have said before her sailing that she was by no means prepared to encounter heavy weather, and that he considered the trip a dangerous one. Many others among seafaring men express similar opinions. Her owners, however, profess to believe that she was thoroughly seaworthy, and still advance the opinion that she will be found working up the coast with disabled machinery. Her progress in that case would be quite slow enough to account tor her delay, as she was heavily loaded and has very little spread of canvas.
Goodall, Nelson & Perkins have telegraphed to have the steamer Gypsy, now on her way up from southern ports, to join with the revenue cutters in the search. Considerable feeling exists to the effect that the Salvador should have been carefully inspected before sailing to-morrow for Victoria. She was roughly handled in her last trip down the coast, and many, including officers, crew and passengers, asserted at the time that she was unfit for such service. She was built several years ago for the southern service, and is not considered stanch enough for the northern route, especially at this season of the year. She is an iron vessel, but the upper part of her hull is of wood, with large side ports, through which the water is reported to have forced its way in great quantities during her recent passage. Such an arrangement is not permissible under the rules of the British Lloyd’s.
The Mikado, of the Australasian Steam Navigation Company’s line, will leave this evening on her last trip from this port. The new City of San Francisco will take her place on the Pacitic Mail Company’s Australian line, sailing to-morrow morning.
The trial before the United States Circuit Court of Captain Lindell for willfully wrecking the Bark Union still continues. Additional evidence is being obtained from members of the crew, showing that the wreck was premeditated.
The Mikado Sails— The City of San Francisco Sails To-Day— Body identitied.
San Francisco, December 9th.
The steamer Mikado sailed this evening for Sydney, via Honolulu. This departure closes the service of the Australian Steam Navigation Company. The Pacific Mail steamer City of San Francisco sails to-tomorrow on the same route. Considerable interest is felt and some bets are made as to which ship will make the best time. The Mikado carried a large freight and passenger list, being favored by travelers and shippers on account of a feeling against the Pacific Mail for its action in thecase of Captain Waddell . . . No news from the missing steamer Los Angeles.

AUSTRALIA AND THE CENTENNIAL.
In an article on the Pacific Mail service, the Sydney Herald of a late date says that the relations between the Australian colonies and the United States will naturally be strengthened by the establishment and maintenance of an efficient mail service between them. Influences tending in the same direction may also be brought into operation by the representation of our resources at the Philadelphia Centennial Exhibition. New South Wales will, it it believed, make a creditable appearance there with the goods from this colony shipped by the Mikado.
