H.M.S. Inflexible left on Saturday for New Zealand; His Excellency Sir Charles Fitz Roy, and a large party of ladies and gentlemen were on board, as it was generally known that she would take a cruise round the harbour prior to her proceeding to sea. After running down near the heads she returned and ran up Darling Harbour, for the purpose of going round Goat Island, w3hen she rounded on the sandspit which extends from Goat Island towards Balmain. She remained on it about an hour, when, as the tide was flowing, she got off. Not having received any damage she then proceeded to sea forthwith, after landing her visitors.

The Rookery from Sydney to London, has put into Launceston. Her cargo, copper ore from New Zealand, having heated, the whole is to be discharged. This vessel brought from Sydney about 150 tons New Zealand ore in bulk; she was destined for Portland Bay, to fill up with wool; but on the passage down the ore required trimming, and upon some of the crew descending into the hold, the heat was found to be so intolerable that it became evident something was going wrong. Upon examination it was discovered that the ore was heating rapidly, and fears were entertained that it would ignite. The Captain , therefore, put in here, and having consulted the agents, it was decided that the only safe course was to discharge the cargo. This was commenced at George Town, but the difficulty of obtaining laboureres there, rendered the process so slow, that it was resolved to bring the Bessel up to town, and she is now unloading at Griffith's wharf. Dr Pugh examined the state of the ore; at two feet below the surface the thermometer rose to 130 degrees, and a little lower to 150 degrees. There is not the least question that in a few weeks at most, combustion would have taken place. Dr. Pugh has commenced an analysis of the ore, and the presence of a very large proportion of sulphur seems to be the principal cause of its heating. The same ore, we believe, was shipped some twelve months ago on board the Hoeghly, at Sydney, but discharged for the same cause. The men employed can only work in the hold for a quarter of an hour at a time, and are subject to profuse bleeding at the nose. - Launceston Examiner.
