SDfje tomeu* PUBLISHED DAILY. SATUJIVAV, JUXJH 25, 18G1. Tun cultivation ol' the sugar enuc in this colony can only as yut be considered as in its infancy. Notwithstanding the many proofs which liavc boen adduced, both through the columns of the public journals and by tile result of private enterprise, of the suitability of our soil to this important product of agriculture, there is st ill a lethargy existing among capitalists, which is inimical to their interests, and to' those of the "country generally. In a recent copy of the Sydney Morning Herald wo find that the people of New ¡South Wales aro reminded of the necessity of directing their attention to other crops than those ol' wheat and maize, and they are informed that there are large districts in which the land and climate aie well adapted for the cultivation of the sugar cane. There is un- fortunately an indisposition on (he part of the colonists, both here and in New South Wales, generally, to invest theil* money in experime...

LEYBURN. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 25 June 1864
LEYBURN. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT) &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; The crushing machine has not yet arrived at &nbsp; the Reef. The company, which had been &nbsp; formed for the purpose of obtaining one has &nbsp; been dissolved, one of the members who held several shares, having withdrawn at the last &nbsp; &nbsp; moment. Mr Malley, a practical engineer, from Ipswich, has visited the reef and made arrange- &nbsp; ments with the miners to have a crushing machine on the ground in ten weeks, and to &nbsp; &nbsp; erect a second one, if required, at some future date. A German told me last week that his party had struck a vein of quartz at a depth of &nbsp; ninety feet, very rich in the precious metal. The miners generally are in good spirits and many of them are provided with comfortable &nbsp; winter quarters. The diggers on the Canal &nbsp; &nbs...
PORT DENISON. (From the Port Denison Times.) [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 25 June 1864
PORT DENISON. (From the Port Denison Times.) By the arrival of Mr. Stuart in town we are enabled to inform our readers that a new town- ship has been laid out between Mr. Antill's head station and the crossing place of the Ana branch, quite secure from floods. A few country por- tions as padlocks have also been set out. After a careful survey of tho river to its mouth, Mr. Stuart has determined to set out, fivo or six sec- tions at a place known as tho "Blulf," two miles lower down than the present landing ; a spot which is healthy, above all possibility of &nbsp; floods, commanding delightful scenery, with &nbsp; &nbsp; ample depth of water for steamers to discharge alfoat at the bank. The name of the town will in all probability be " Wickham." Townships at the upper crossing of the Burdekin (at Genges) and the crossing at the Bowen River &nbsp; will also be laid out during the next three months. A public meeting was held on tho 26th instant, for the...

In the earlier part of the week there was a slight improvement in the markets for colonial produce, but within tho last few days they have again beeomo inactive. Advices received by the mail confirm tho first intelli- gence as given by ,our telegrams, bnt has not had any marked effect on prices. On Tuesday last both the Northern steamers sailed with full cargoes. Tho wool season is now drawing rapidly to a close, and the exports per the steamers to Sydney show a decrease.
