Finch, Vice-Admiral, R.N.- Mr. Finch survived the attack of the infuriated animal only a few hours, which were necessarily those of extreme suffering, in the midst of which, however, he preserved his serenity of mind, and with his characteristic benevolence exerted his best efforts in endeavouring to compose the feelings of his surrounding domestics. His remains were interred at Liver-pool, on the 21st instant, attended by his old colonial friends, the Reverend F. Wilkinson,M.A., John Dillon, Esq., and Lieutenant R. Sadleir, R.N.

Details: INTERIOR DISCOVERY. All intelligence upon this subject must be interesting to the Colonists. It will, therefore, be gratifying to them to hear that Mr. Heneage Finch, formerly attached to the Surveying Department, has proved the practicability of forming a road from the Big River to New England and the Table Land, in the northern districts. Mr. Finch, who has performed this journey with one companion and two mules, states the perfect practicability o f forming a road from the M cLeay to the Big River, and thence to the Table Land .Several months ago an expedition was sent forth under the direction of the Deputy Surveyor General, consisting of a large party, properly equipped, but no information has been published. All the rivers which appeared likely to lead to the south branch of the Clarence or Big River were explored by Mr. Finch- he followed down the only practicable one, and states that there exists a facility of making a road, either by it, or along the ridge on the north side of it, to reach the Table Land. The settlers in the neighbourhood of New England are using every exertion to prevail upon the Government to construct a road, so as to avoid the tedious and perilous journey by the way of Maitland. What Government should do is to send about thirty men to open a road in time for the ensuing wool season. More of this Colony has been opened up by individual enterprise than Government exertion. Let the Government, however, hold out inducements to private enterprise, and we have no doubt that very beneficial results will be the consequence. No man will undertake public matters at his own proper costs and charges . but we believe that, with fair encouragement, Mr. Finch has the ability to open a good line of road which would greatly benefit the extensive districts of Liverpool Plains and New England.
