We are informed by Mr. Garrey, of the Sydney mail, that the wire now extends nearly to Kyamba; that the posts are fixed to the Billybong Creek; that the clearing party is about three miles in advance; and that the pioneers have marked out the line for some miles on this side of Mullengandra.
The contractors expect to complete the work m about three weeks time.
