AUSTRALIAN PISCICULTURE. [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 13 June 1864
AUSTRALIAN PISCICULTURE. TJndeb Iho above heading a very interesting lotter appeared in the S. M. Herald of the 25th ult. In these days of acclimatisation tim intro- duction of English fish, into colonial xvatcrs has excited a considerable amount of attention,-und has also involved a largo outlay of money.

Whs Courier* PUBLISHED DAILY. 3£0XDJ.r, JUXE 13, 1SG4. TnoüGn tito Panama contract negotiated by Mr. Cnosmi: Wakd on behalf of Xew Zealand has not, contrary to our expecta- tions, been adopted by the Geueral Govern- ment of the colony, there is room to hope that it will not be allowed to lapse by that large and influential majority outside the metropolitan city of Auckland. It cannot but be regarded as a misfortune that the Ministry, of which Mr. Wakd was not the least influential member, should have been ousted be/ore the contract was ratified. And, spite of the expensive war, of the necessity for economy, of the disputes about the futura capital, we must look upon the refusal of the present Ministry to approve the act of its predecessor as a political and fiscal blunder. A strong feeling of dis- satisfaction has been evoked in the south- ern provinces, which is fast extending; while the bold and patriotic action of the provincial government of Canterbury which is certainly not the...
