Our Neighbours. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENTS] HERBERTON. _ February 20. . The heavy rains have certainly washed the news away ; there is really nothing to record               beyond, the fact that we are receiving a fair share of Heaven's pure liquid, which is something now-a-days, seeing that this boon will have the effect of circulating coin for rebuilding of bridges and repairing roads. I suppose the Government will have to pay the cost, as I don't see where the ratepayers are to find it. The former can afford to do it, however, seeing that the estimates are not over burdened with expenditure for the district.                     The Cairns mail left on Monday morning, and on Tuesday morning.
