Our Neighbours. [KUOM OÜB OWX COBBESPONDENTS.] HEKBEBTOÎ). February SO. THE weather has been and is unpleasantly sultry during the week ; on Tuesday, Wed- nesday, and Thursday there were, heavy thunderstorms. The traffic, nots'ithstand I ing, npjiears to be lively, and very ninny packers and several teams have arrived during thc week, live passing through to Watsonville and Irvinebank. I have heard of nothing particularly new from Silverfield. The specimens of chloride of silver, or horn silver, are exceedingly rich ; they resemble closely similar forma- tions in Bolivia. Should the Albion lease contain a permanent quantity of this material, or even a large portion. Silver field will possess a bonanza unsurpassed in the knor.-u world. The grand question to be solved is, does it exist iu any other part of field or in any other portion of the district ? Chloride of silver has different appearances, some being of a erustaceous character at- tached to galena, while others are distinct n...

Our Brisbane Letter. (t'BOlI OUB OWI COBSEBIUXDEST.) Mn. GBIFFITII ha» returned from the Houth,' and since hi« return he lia« attended the Agricultural ¡Show at Warwick, and delivered a very long after-dinner speech there. The show was a very good one as regards wheat and horses, but other exhibits were not as numerous as they should be in such a district. Mr. Griffith's speech, though a long one, touched upon no topic of importance, or rather gave thc public no idea of thc policy nf thc Govern- ment. He eulogised the Laud Act, the effect of which has yet to bc proved, and which is certainly not as yet re- garded with much favour by the small selectors ; in fact one farmer at the Warwick dinner went so far as to say that it must be amended next "session. Mr. Griitith, however, boasted that the new Act would put au end to laud monopoly in Queensland, which, cun sidvriug the extent to which land jobliing is now being carried un, and the inpii»v**i»c .profit» .m-tiicn a few xyndi ca'tc...
