Separation. [Newspaper Article] — Cairns Post — 8 January 1885

Separation. EXT IM CT from pamphlet issue"! hy tile "North ern Separation Longue : (CONTINUED.) I may add that the last paragraph, which is giren as the opinion then of Southern Queensland towards New South Wales, some- what expresses the position we find the North in to-day. Such was the exact posi- tion of Queensland in 1S39-1S60, and the statistics for the latter year were considered ' very satisfactory from every point of view, the then Registrar-General being unani- mously coinpliiuuuted on tii*>m¡ The pastoral interest was the mainstay of the colony, as it nearly provided all the exports, as shown by' the figures. Manufactories were only re- presented by four steam saw-mills, two soap and candle manufactories-one turning out fire tons of soap, and the other 5000 lbs. of candles-the rest, except the boiling down establishments, being txx> insigniiicant to mention, agriculture was in its infancy, although considered favourable in proportion to the population.

New Year's Day. [Newspaper Article] — Cairns Post — 8 January 1885

New Year's Day. NEW Tear's Day was strictly observed in Cairns as a general holiday, and a cricket match and regatta provided during the day for the public amusement. - The regatta, notwithstanding the short notice given, passed off very satisfactorily, and we trust this will be the inauguration of a sailing and rowing club. The facilities of a grand sheet of water such as Trinity Bay and - inlet favours this idea, ffe hope to see this matter taken up and a club formed. Ap- pended is the result of the day's racing Sailing Eace, for. keel and ceatre-board boat«. First prize, £12 ; second, ¿E l. Peggy ("VT. J. Chard) . 1 Idalia. (A. J.

There may bc some doubt as to the precise nature of that action. Whether it has been a formal annexation of territory by the authority ot the Imperial Govern- ment, with à view to the establishment, of a permanent, orderly administratio»¿ or whether it has been the lae«? hoisting of the flajr in token th»t interests acquired by Oerman subject* from the natives by any firm «f purchase will be recognised and de- fended by the German Power, may not yet be.emite clear. ;As we rem: irked yWtertWy, Prince Bismarck has foreshadowed the adop- tion of the latte? polb'y.
