The tide of emigration is again setting in towards Australia, and your colony is receiving a good share of it. The Commissioners are filling four vesels for Adelaide. One of these, the Trafalgar, will leave Plymouth in a day or two ; one will sail about the 15th inst., and two others in the early part of next month. Your readers will be glad to learn that many of the emigrants by these ships will be Cornish miners of good character. An inprovement has re cently been made in the dietary of Government ships by allowing a portion of the flour issued to be made into bread twice a- week, a baker going in each vessel to attend to this as well as to the baking of pies, &c.
