Details: Hunter River Railway Company.-The labourers who arrived in the Ellenborough for this Company were all landed at Newcastle last week, and yesterday morning commenced work. The first turf was turned by the Chairman of the Company, but there was no ceremony beyond three cheers from those present.

Details: NEWCASTLE.—Arrival. — October 31. Ellenborough, ship, 1084 tons, Captain Thornhill, from Southampton July 14. Passengers—Mr. James H. Atkinson, Dr.Stolworthy, Surgeon Superintendent, and 399 immi- grants. The Ellenborough has had rather a long pa sage of 107 days from Southampton, which has been occasioned by her being very deep, having encountered most dreadful weather, and losing a number of her spars on the passage. She brings 399 immigrants,principally English, and all in good health, 100 of whom are for the Railway Company, the remainder are chiefly agricultural labourers. There have been 7 deaths and 2 births on board during the voyage. We believe the immigrants speak in high terms of the kindness and attention shown them by Dr. Stolworthy. The cargo of the Ellenborough consists principally of iron for the Railway Company
