Victoris. MELBOURNE, FEBRUARY 5. [Newspaper Article] — Cairns Post — 12 February 1885
Vlctaftea.. MELBOURNE, FEBKIARY 5. \ The Hon. Ja». Service, the Premier, ha* received information from the -Agent-General, and also from other sources, which are sufficient to show that there is no foundation for the report that the Imperial Government have abandoned the intention of annex- ing thc portion of New Guinea, and so -.tmSfm-.- J^-^CTS.'- con- cerned; everything is'proceeding satis- factorily, and there is a likelihood of the Imperial Government consenting to beal' a portion of the cost. ' FEBRVAXY G. A large meeting of. representatives of tine Trades Hall Council and em- ployees was held yesterday to discuss the subject of the dispute in the boot trade. Owing to thc Trades Hall Council endeavouring to concentrate all the labour societies against thc boot mauufacturtrs, an association of em- ployer», manufacturers, and contractors is in course of formation. It is said thc shipowners will also join the asso- ciation. A meeting of the Coffee Palace Com- pany was held to-day...

Our Brisbane Letter. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) [Newspaper Article] — Cairns Post — 19 February 1885
Oar Brisbane Letter. (mon ora ow« COBKEIIPVXMNT.) TUE English cricketers have been here and beaten the local twenty-two very easily, as was expected. "Our men made even a worse show than they should have done, as owing to some falling out amongst themselves three of thc players selected refused to play at the last moment, and their places had to be filled by tho emergency men. The match did not excite a great deal of interest, but the attendance on the ground during the first two days was pretty fair ; on thc last day it was very small. The Englishmen went from herc to Maryborough, where they won again very easily, lt was, of course, I absurd to invite such an eleven'up here, I as we have no players who would stand a chance against them, even with twenty-two to eleven. The English Press. I see, is noticing the Northern agitation for separation, and not unfavourably iu some quarters. THE COI.ONIKS AMI INDIA in its issue of December 12 expresses an opinion that Northern Queensland mus...

Correspoiidenee. [We do not hold ourselves responsible for the opinions of our correspondents.] (To the Editor of the CAIBXS POST.) Sut,-I wish to call your attention (for the purpose of ventilating the question) to Warden Towner's report of the newly dis- covered goldfield on the Johnstone River. Tn his report he recommends this new field should be added on to and made a part of the Mulgrave goldfield. I desire, on behalf of myself and the residents of this district, to bring under the notice of the authorities the fact-that the Johnstone Biver goldfield is an entirely new discovery, while the Mul- grave goldfield has been open for several years. If the recommendation of Warden Towner is earned out; it is easily forseen it will be the cause for a general riot so soon as the wet season terminates, because a rush of European diggers will then take place who will inevitably rush the Chinamen and drive them off the field. Besistance by the China- men will lead to serious affrays, who o...

Herberton Mining Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Cairns Post — 19 February 1885
'Herbertou Miniiig Notes. THE excitement consequent on the important discovery of rich silver ore at Irvinebank has caused something like a stampede from here. It is estimated that at the present time there are over 400 men engaged in working the lodes already found and in prospecting the country for new finds, while it is known that many are on their way from Ravens- wood, Charters Towers, and other portions of the interior. Notwithstanding the extra- ordinary richness of some of the shows it would be premature and most injudicious for people at a distance from this place to leave anything like steady employment on the speculation of picking up a rich lode. By this time the country will have been pretty well explored, and in all probability the fancy spots will have been chosen. Nearly everyone here are convinced that this is more than an ordinary discovery of silver, and it is doubtful as to whether any silver finds of the same character has ever been found in the colonies, and wh...

Our Neighbours. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENTS.] HERBERTON. February 13. [Newspaper Article] — Cairns Post — 19 February 1885
Our Neighbours. [FROM OUR OïfX CORRESPONDENTS.] HERBERTON. -. February 13.-~ THESE have been showers off and on all the I weet. The "silver" excitement continues, al- though I have heard of no particular new discovery.' Several leases and claims have been taien up, and the " rush " ja said to " consist of of between one and two hundred persons. The claim par excellence is the ** Albion," situated on a high hill, and even if its silver qualities were less attractive, its site would command attention. Beyond the facts already published but little can be said anent the place yet ; when the excitement is over and people settle down, the real charac- teristics of the locality will be known. At the present moment every one -hopes he has a. bonanza, and I hope no one will be dis- appointed. What, however, Ï conceive to be equally interesting in mining matters is the coming upon good tin in two mines. I see by the telegrams of the CAIRNS POST in Thursday's issue, that you liad been informed...
