Our Brisbane Letter. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) [Newspaper Article] — Cairns Post — 25 December 1884
Onr Brisbane Letter. (FROM orra OWN CORRES* rSotixf.) i TUE Parliamentary session is fast drawing to an end, and as I told you wy wiro the other day there is no chance, I aro. afraid, of thc plans of th* first section of your railway beîni» ap- proved of this year, «ot even if the session should be protracted consider- ably longer than it is likely to he. The Assembly has now almost finished (lie estimates, and it is quite likelv that Parliament will bc prorogued almost immediately, as there is now no chance of coming to an agreement with the Council about their amendments in the I-itul Bill. AVhen those amendments came before the Assembly thc Speaker read a very long «nd elaborate ruling, declaring "that the Land Bill would affect thc revenue of thc country, and that it was therefore a money bill, and that the action of thc Council in amending it was therefore au invasion of the privileges of the Assembly. This was a most impudent assumption, as not only have about two dozen Land B...

The Cairns Post. THURSDAY, DECEMBER 25, 1884. [Newspaper Article] — Cairns Post — 25 December 1884
THE CAIRNS POST THURSDAY, DECEMBER 25, 1884 &nbsp; THE one theme that has occupied the &nbsp; minds and busied the tongues ot the whole people of Queensland during the past week &nbsp; luis been the fate in store for the condemned men McNeil and Williams, who have been sentenced to undergo the extreme penalty of the law on Monday next. The intense interest displayed in the fate of these two men has been occasioned by a general feeling that the evidence addneed at the trial and upon which they were convicted was not sufficiently conclusive to prove them guilty, and further that undue severity has been shown by the Executive in refusing to com- mute the sentence, although mercy was recommended by the jury and petitioned by thousands of just and loyal citizens. The desire for a reprieve was greatly intensified by the reply of Mr. Griffith to the Brisbane deputation praying for the exercise of the Royal prerogative of mercy, in which became apparent a craving on ...

Correspondence. [We do not hold ourselves responsible for the opinions of our correspondents.] (To the Editor of the CAIRNS POST.) SIR. — As some excitement is being created by the discovery of alluvial gold on the Johnstone River, a short account of a trip to the spot may not be uninteresting : — Hear- ing the report of gold being found on the north branch of the river, I started with a mate from Geraldton, on November 28, for the locality of the find. After passing two small camps of Chinamen working in small creeks and gullies, we camped for two or three days between twenty and thirty miles up the river. While here the sergeant of police came along with a prospector and two black trackers, and also three boat loads of Chinamen. The sergeant's boat went ahead, and we kept company with the Chinese boats for about eight miles, when we came to a very bad rapid, at which we camped. The Chinamen tried to proceed in their smallest and strongest boat but failed ; the boat capsizing. "We ...
