The Rebeea arrived at Treasury Iland on the 30th March, and as is usual the natives gathered round tile vessel, and the principal chief, named Copan, together with his son, came on board; but he had no sooner got into the cabin than Captain Develin seeured him, and at once demanded the liberation of the seamen.

BRISBANE. [wuox of OeW COR?ESPOtDoEl f. Thursday, October 17th. It will interest you to learn that the plan of the Tramway Bridge at Ipswich is now under the consider ation of Government. It has been suggested that this strueture might be made to answer all the purposes of the town for some time to conme, by going to a little ad ditional expense. If the'Corporation sand.the Tramway Company could only be brought to agreejn the matter, a bridge might be'built that would answer the purposes of both, and save an unnecessary outlay of.money by each. - The Brisbane Cerporation have called for plans for their bridge, and have offered premiums of £150, ±80, end £40, arcording to merit. A. motion was introduced into the Mnnicipal Conneil, the oth*r day, having in view the lighting of tis cit with kerosine lamps.

(From the Guardian. The Rev. George Wight, formnerly of Brisbane and now in Scotland, is engaged on a work on Queensland, which is to be published in London, price half-a-crown. The book is to the order of Mr. George Street, the well known Colonial news-agent and publisher, of Cornhill, and is intended to be of a more practical character than that lately issued by Dr. Lang, to which so much exception has been taken. It will, at the same time, be more elaborate than Mr. Jordan's phamphlet. Mr. J. C. White, of Jondaryan, arrived from Sydney on Sunday evening, bringing with him twenty-six very superior German sheep; twenty being Saxon Merino rams and six ewes; also four China pigs, and an English boar. Mr. White has also introduced several German labourers. The operations of this gentleman wouled now appear to be rather extensive, having charge of Jondaryan, Goombaurra, Pikedale, and Callandoon (sheep stations), also Widgee Widgee (cattle and sheep), and Colan (cattie): The introductio...

TASMANIA. THE CHAMPION MEET.-The ,obart Town Ad vertiser of the 7th i.,stant, says of the champion race:-" From present indications, we may antici pate that the forthc?oming champion meet will tie one of the most successful of any of the champion races which have yet-taken place. The subscrip tions are coming in well, and the interest the e'ent is exciting is every day becoming greater. The horses to compete f?or the various events are taking up their quarters in and near the city, to undergo their coursq of training. Ben Bolt, the representsa tive of Western Australia, arrived last week after his long journey, in tip-top condition. He has taken up his permanent quarters at Rice's stables, New Town, and takes his breathings regularly every morning over the New Town course. A few days ago we saw at Melton M!owbray, Panic and Shillelagh. Both were looking well, the former especially; and, according to report, he is a regular flyer. He certainly ought to be a good one, cono taining som...

VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Times, Ipswich Herald & General Advertiser — 29 October 1861
VICTORIA. The following extracts are from the Argue: Two merino rams, belonging to Mr. J. S. Currie, one of which (Q E.n.) was bred by T. Learmonth, and the other, a lamb of eight months old, bred by Mr. Currie, were sold at M'Caw's bazaar on Friday, by Power, Rutherford, and Co., at £50 each, being the highest price ever realized for colonial-bred sheep. The lamb is, for his age, probably the largest and most symmetrical merino ever exhibited-in Vic toria at any rate. Under the head, "Warrnambnol Gold.fields," the Examiner of October 8th, says:-" Oar readers may start at this announcement, but who knows that such may not prove a fact. An old resident in this district, living on the Brucknell Creek, well known as Alexander Brock, informs us that last week his wife killed a goose on his farm, in the gizzard of which she found several good specs of virgin gold. This was not killing the goose for the sake of the golden eggs, as the old fable states, but we trust will lead to discoverie...

ýColwual ~xtriwt0. NEW SOUTH WALES. (From the Sydney Morning Herald) NOTES OF THE WEEK. Friday, 11th. to Saturday, 19th October. On the evening of Sunday, Mr. Robert Barcomb, an artist, and for some time past. a draughtsman in the Surveyor-Generarl's department, committed sui cide by shooting himself in the head with a pistol. The unfortunate gentleman ?eas evidently of un sound mind, and had been so for a considerable time, having more than once (an former occasions) threatened to commit slf-destruction. The body of Mr. George Land, late a resident at Hartley, was found in the harbour, but his death is shrouded in mystery. He was a respectable steady man. There was no imaginable reason why he should commit suicide, nor was there any reasonable mode of accounting forhis death by accident. On the other hand, his watch and rings were missing when his body was found. The condemned Chinaman Jan Sing, has had a sabort respite granted, in order that he might obtain spiritual instruction a...
