XoTHixo but warlike news lias any interest for us down here just now. lt is as vet uncertain whether England and Russia may suddenly find them- selves at war. it is generally believed that if war does break out it will not Le heralded by a solemn declaration, but will commence by a Russian attack upon the English surveying party at Herat, as soon as the Russians have got their forces to thc front. For our comfort we are assured that the Rus- sians have twenty-five steamers in their Pacific licet, and whereabouts they now are is unknown to us, though pos- sibly the English Admiralty has some information on the subject. Thc Aus- tralian squadron has suddenly dis- persed, going in different directions, with sccnit instructions, and wc cati only hone that they may meet the Russians before they arrive on our coast.

The Cairns Post. THURSDAY, APRIL 16, 1885. Guaranteed 700 Copies Weekly. [Newspaper Article] — Cairns Post — 16 April 1885
THUBSDAY, APRIL 16. 18S5. Guaranteed 700 Copies Weekly. Tire new timber regulation» just issued! by the Government, have caused a sur- prise almost, if not quite, verging on thc sensational amongst a elans of people who deserved better considéra- tion. It will bc conceded by every northern pioneer that the timber-getter is one of a class who has, and eveu does now, expose himself to peculiar hardships, for after all has been said he has been the real explorer ; taking his life as it were in his hand, penetrating into the most inaccessible country in the face of disease, privation, and pos- sible raids from the aboriginals. If he has earned money in the good old times ha certainly deserved it. But a great change for the worse has befallen the timber trade, which, unfortunately may be said of other trades besides. "We are hoping even against hope that this may only be temporary ; but those who have scanned, the prices current for cedar in the southern markets for, the last two years a...

The TIMES to-day publishes a tele- gram, which states that thc Russian pretext for an attack was simply a change of position of thc Afghan out- posts at Peujedih.
