Small-Pox among- the Blacks in Northern Queensland. A correspondent of the Brisbane Courier says:-"Tbot small-pox visits the northern portioo of Australia about once in 60 years, there cannot be a doubt.

Travelling further north and west on the shores of the Gnlf of Carpentaria, on the Leichbardt, Albert.
