A small fire was discovered on Friday night in the coal bunker of the steamer Maori King, in which vessel the second Queensland unit left for South Africa onf the following day.

Mr. Balstrup speaks in glowing terms of the prospects of the St. Aubyn mine, and during the tour he was accom panied by Mr. S. Pinnington. (the manager). He goes on to say that the prospecting dlone has exposed a very large area of alluvial tin ground, and he has no doubt that when the water is on the ground it will be highly pay able. Mr. Balstrup was unable to visit the dam site, as the whole of his time was taken up in inspecting the alluvial and lodes. In his report he speaks highly of these, and has no doubt that they are payable and quite up to what the manager reported. The woolfram lode has been prospected, and large lumps of solid metal can be seen. This only wants more work done on it to develop into something very good. He concludes by saying that in his opinion the association has a splendid property, on which v...

VEGETATION SUPPLIES. PROPAGA'JION v. IMPORTATION. With the advent of restrictive legis lation designed to shut out insect and other pests that prey utpon the different forms of vegetation, it devolved upon the nursorymen of our colony to take steps to ensuje that what is lost in the direction of importation should be amply made up by way of local culti vatiomt It is, therefore, gratifying to find that 'they are not allowing the grass to grow under their feet, but have materially quickened their efforts in the propagation of stocks that should command the conflidence of all who need ,them. A memlber of our staff dropped into Mr. Frank Walker's grounds on the Sandhill yesterday, and it is to a large extent due to what he saw there that we are led to- pro nounce this branch of Tasmanian industry to be reasonably up to date. The proprietor evidently has confidence in the 'future, for nct a square yard of the 4/ acreO that constitute his headquarters is unutilisad, and year by. year he i...
