JbocftI InfellBgeoice. House ACCOMMODATION.-Buring the last four or five weeks our city and suburbs havo prcscntud an' unusual appearanco, in consé- quence of tlie number of tents erected for tlio accommodation of now arrivals. More than a yoar and'1 n-half ago we drew attention to the want of house accommodation in Bris- bane, ns judged by tlio then present, and probable influx of population, and the require- ments resulting therefrom. Every month since has only tended to confirm ins in tho Correctness of tbis iden. Tlio increase of population has certainly been moro than commensurate with tim progress exemplified in private building, and hence wo find that upwards of a score of people have been com- pelled to erect tents, isa., with a view to tem- porary accommodation.
