The Adrian, our readers are aware, sailed some weeks previous to the Earl St Vincent, and brings no late news....Among the passengers by the Adrian are Mr. Bucknell and lady (niece of D'arcy Wentworth, Esq. of Sydney) their numerous family, governess and nurse. This gentleman has been some time expected, having been provided with cabins in the Lady Rowena by the Home Government, which was the reason of that vessel's coming out with her cabins unoccupied. Mr. Bucknell comes out under the sanction of Government, though without holding any official situation, to arrange some water works in contemplation in the other Colony. He has with him, and has sent several hydraulic engines, and has also a steam engine of 25 horse power, now on the voyage, for the purpose of carrying those designs into effect, and no doubt the liberality of our Colonial Government will render every assistance in its power to so useful an undertaking.
