Notably in Queensland, Edward Bevan, the smart young editor of the Townsville Daily Standard, and Dodd Clarke., editor of the Townsville Bulletin, were ?schoolmates under the new " Metropolitan."

-" , . , A Social Problem. - ' I am a plain, unlettered elf, A fragment of the common delf, Placed on the lowest social shelf; And yet-withal Severing virtue more than pelf Truth before "all. All things ambiguous I hate; I run (in sporting parlance) straight ; But, I've been much perplexed of late, As you will see; If I the subject here may state For your decree. We hear the clergy oft assail The stage-attack it tooth and nail, (Till Thespian neophytes turn pale, And shake with awe), Deem actors all beyond the pale Of moral law. The play-house portals represent Defiance of th* Omnipotent ; Its votaries are headlong sent To, Tophet's pit, Midst tortures worse than Dante dreamt Just think of it. Its men and women (deeply read, Virtuous, cultured, highly bred) Are poiuted at with shrinking dread, As. trebly curst; Although the Nazarme has said, - Sans sin, throw first.

[BY HERMIT.] A BEiGiiT and lovely morning on^he Oth instant was all that was required, by tlie large number "of people who had decided on spending their holiday at Eagle Farm, and in this they' were not disappointed, for the day was a lovely one, without being so not as it often is at tliis time of the year. The attendance at the course was larger than ever, both rail and road being largely pattonised,and the Grand Stand was full to repletion, the Mr sex being particularly well represented, and the many pretty and tasteful toilettes added the necessary lustre to the crowd both on the stand, and promenading the lawn and the saddling paddock. Sir Anthony Musgrave and Suite were on the ground, and his Excellency evidently took a genuine interest in the sport throughout: Be expressed himself as being highly pleased with the racing, and hinted the probability of taking a further interest in it by owning and running a horse or two.

IF Griffith does no more in his office of Colonial Secretary and " bossof the Police Department than shunt Commissioner Seym our and place a more active and efficient man in his place he will have earned the thanks of the peace-lpving community of this colony. Under the existing regime, Arrogant Stupidity is at war with law and order-the first is embodied in the police, the latter in the seekers after justice (!)-A premium to crime. I told you, in my lost issue, all about the unholy alliance made between the publican and the police at Tarpom, and how a Mrs. Brocket had purchased a piece of land and was refused delivery by the Taroom police, because, forsooth, they required it as a police paddock. Now, I hear (and the ears of the Police Department ought to "get hot" at this) that a trooper took the hobbles from one of Mrs. Brockles* horses and drove it into the hush. Mrs.' Brockel summoned this scoundrel and the Bench stated in adjourning the case-here comes in th...

-* Wanted-A Township. A man named Cronin called upon me the other day, and asked me to intercede with, the new Government to have a township proclaimed on Lake Mary, five miles down the Georgina Eiver-(some of you boys may remember that this spot was christened after our late dear old Governor's daughter; it used, by-the way, to be called the Herbert in my time)-from the Eocklands Station on the Barclay Tableland. This will be about 240 miles from Burketown, 10 miles from the Border, and something like 50 miles from where Nash first had his sheep. Cronin, as many of my Northern friends will remember, came down to the Gulf in the old days as Billy Landsborough's orderly. Since that time he has made a " pot o' money " and I wish [go on with your copy-so do I!-ED.
