JÄTEST «Y WIRE. '* QUEEHSIiAHD. HEBDEBTOX, April 8. The reported gold find at Boara Pocket is utterly -wrong ; the old Chinese scrapings at Toohey's Creek was the place. Very few claims at Silverfield besides the Company's are on galena. The Albion is doing a big business. GERALDTON, April 4. Mr. Hume Black, M.L.A., addressed a large meeting here on Wednesday evening; Mr. C. Nolan in the chair. Mr. Black spoke for about an hour and a half, dealing with the immensely rich mineral, agricultural, and pastoral lauds of North Queensland, and ex- plained the new Laud Act and labour question. He considered the land in the North could not be surpassed for richness and fertility, hut suitable labour must be provided to work it. The ' question of territorial separation was well received, Mr, Black fully ex- plaining his reasons for advocating separation, and denounced the addi- tional Members Bill, as it would not meet the requirements of the North, lie eulogised both leaders of the House, an...

IT appears by the v Herberton telegram in your paper, and that fruin Cairns iu the HUBKBTON ADVEBTISKB. tliat Mr. linnie Black's audience's in the two toa-ns hold different opinions upon thc matter of Separa- tion. Although unsympathetic, I may men- tion that the member for Mackay had here a most attentive and decorous audience, and that our people have thc luppy knack of being excellent listeners, even when Under- going the procens of hearing disagreeable topics. Mr. Black is held in Ililli esteem by all sides of this population, .nd this w:is amply exemplified hy the large attendance ut the School of Arts Hall u couple of hours after that gcu:lenian arrived in town. His views on the Land Bill were well profounded. Of course. Separation lins its supporters here also, but I think they are very limited ; the prevailing feeling is plainly averse to the movement, which Mr. Black conceived to be due to thc fear of los...

Our Brisbane Letter. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) [Newspaper Article] — Cairns Post — 9 April 1885
Oar Brisbane Letter. (FBUM OUR OWX COBBUTOHDECT.) j MR. Justice Pring, after a long illness, died rather suddenly the day before yesterday, and was buried in the after- noon of the same day. It is supposed that the seat on the Supreme Court Bench will bc offered to Mr. Garrick, as it is understood that Mr. Rutledge will not claim it. Indeed, he scarcely could with any propriety, as it is well known that it is his politicul services rather timi» his legal abilities that bare placed him for a time at the head of tlie Bar. If Mr. Garrick docs not accept the position, which is thought to be possible, Messrs. Iteal, (¿.C., and Paul, the District Court Judge, »re spoken of as the most likely candidates. Parliament has been prorogued again till May 12, but is not summoned for destwtch of business even then, lt is said that the Government dp not intend to call it together carly this year unless some urgent necessity should arise. . lt appears, however, at present as if such a necessity is i...
