MONDAY* was religiously kept ns u holiday, the umuseuieuts consisting of the Primitive Church Sunday School childrens' picnic, at which till the other children were invited, and a cricket mutch between two local tennis. In the evening there was a chil- drens entertainment, and a ball held at Watsonville, ct which many from Herberton were present. The day was fine, there being but a couple of light showers. The M.TJ., I.O.O.F, brass band attended the childrens' picuic at Herberton, which materially added to the enjoyment of the day. The cricket match caused considerable interest, as al- most all the cricket players in the place vere engaged. I hear that your people are petitioning for the Platypus dredge, and it is about time you had something of the kind, seeing that the first available drodge was promised either in the present Liberal Government's time or in the latter part of the M'llwrnitU Government.

j Oar Brisbane Letter. ) j (PROM OUR OWN COBBEd"! INDENT.) "FHE "members of our Defence Force were .recalled from Lytton last week ; vessels can now come up thc river when they like, and the precautions which were taken in anticipation of war are all relaxed. Vet peace does nut seem quite assured ; we had some rather ominous telegrams towards thc end of the week stating that iiussia had put forwards demaiidfor still more territory than they have aireadv seized, and that thc Afghans should be prohibited from erecting fortifications even in the terri- tory liussia leaves to them for the present. This does not disturb public feeling much now, however, as the uni- versal belief is that Gladstone and Co. will surrender everything sooner than fight, and that the stoppage of the Guards at Alexandria is merely cmptv bounce, which will be abandoned if Russia calmly persists in her outrage- ous demands. 1 um glad to say, how- ever, that the spirit which waa aroused wkeu war appeared to IM.' i...

$£ljc <Tairn£ post. THURSDAY, JUNE 1, ISS5. Guaranteed 700 Copies Weekly. Slit Saul Samuel, Agent-General for New South "Wales,- gave a banquet iu London recently in honour of Lord Carrington, the lately appointed Gover- nor of that colony. As a matter of course all the colonial notabilities worth -inviting we're' present, with a sprinkling of the English nobility. The new Governor was complimented for his social qualities, about which there eau be no mistake, but the occasion was apparently used to draw out Lord Derby on federation. It is well known that Sir Saul Samuel and his Govern- ment have kept aloof from taking any active part in" the ""conference "resolu- tions submitted in Sydney some months ago, and the tone adopted by the Secre- tary of State for the Colonies on the occasion must have rather a depressing effect on Mr. Service, and the very able colleagues who joined him in passing the resolutions.
