Local Items. We understand that the cane on the Hambledon plantation is looking well, and crushing will commence in about a month's time. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; The reserve alluded to some time ago on the Mulgrave for a police paddock is now proclaimed as temporarily reserved for that purpose. In the list of exports by the Quiraing we find 297 mats and 576 bags sugar, 150 casks molasses, 309 bags tin ore ; 347 bags maize ex Burdekin, and 13 cases bananas ex Glan- worth. &nbsp; The blacks do not seem deterred from their usual foraging-expeditions even when a police inspector is in our midst on an official visit. Last week they cleared out a selector within three-miles of the post office, which &nbsp; speaks very little for police protection in the North. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; At the Police Court, on Saturday last, Sub-in...

SLKKTT ruins all the week, which hare by no means improved business lines, and as a wind np Leon's circus and menagerie open to-morrow night, the cortege having arrived to-day, which means a slack business night for one end of the town. Our Divisional Board held a whole day meeting on Monday. It appears by the pub- 1 listed report that the condition of their treasury is not healthy, and the ADVERTISE* asserts that to carry out the requirements of the division nothing less than a subsidy of between five and six pounds upon each pound of rates collected will be of any service, and that it has cost that amount already Of course the assertion is easily proved by totting up the loans and grants for roads. I believe the same calculation, or something approaching to it, ia suitable to nearly all the divisions in the North, and that a subsidy of two to one is a " delusion and a snare." The present system is simply reverting ...
