WHITHKE it be the glorious weather, the increased activity, or the arrival yesterday , of machinery for the Great Northern, every, body seems to" be in good humour with him- self and neighbours. There is an apparent &lt; but indésirable change amongst the people which is pleasant to contemplate, and if this continues it will require only tenders being called for the railway to render us all supremely happy. As matter of fact, there is more tin being produced throughout the district than at any previous period, and of the very many abandoned claims now being worked theie ia but one that is not showing good payable ore, the beneficial results of which will shortly be experienced by the whole population. The oft-talked-of deep lead is coining* to the fore with a mat cer- tainty.

-"'lCm»oir»irB,"Jaiy:,'9.'" In the Assembly, yesterday, Mr. Berry introduced the new Licensing Sill, which provides that the colony shall be divided into licensing districts. The number of licensed houses is to be in proportion to population, the maxi- mum being one for every 2-50 up to 1000, and then one for every 300. Special courts are to be appointed by the Government to have entire control of licensed houses, and deal with offenders uuder the Bill. The number of licensed houses in the eolony arc to be reduced from 4200 to. 2000. Bar- maids will be allowed to remain in their present positions, but no more are to be allowed. No drink is to be sold to persons under 16 years of age. Sun- day trading is to be prohibited, and license fees will range from £23 to £100. July ll.

Our Brisbane Letter. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) [Newspaper Article] — Cairns Post — 16 July 1885
Our Brisbane Letter. * (.mm ora own coKBSsFttifnnrr.) THE Treasury Statement of Revenue and Jixpenditure for thc financial year just ended has been published, aud is not altogether an encouraging one. We have had a wonderfully well-sustained Customs revenue, and an enormous increase in stamp duty, but there is reason to believe that the Customs receipts are maintained principally by thc large numbers of men who arc now employed down here on public works, paid for with borrowed money, and that the increase iu stamp duty is owing to thc wild speculation in land, which must soon cease. The Reveuue re- turns give no indication of prosperity in our local industries. Mining and the pastoral industries just keep their level, .but the falling off in receipts from selection of land is very great, showing that settlement is not pro- gressing. In his estimates last year, Mr. Dickson had set down £10,000 as the amount which he expected to receive from selections under the new Land.Ac^thcy. real...
