THE COTTON SUPPLY AND THE PROSPECTS OF THE COTTON TRADE. Ol'" tlie various influences which arc weighing upon tho trade of tho conni ry, wo believe thnt scarcely any bas so much effect at the moment as the prevailing uncertninty re- specting flip future snptilvof cotton.

THE 'GOVERNMENT ABORIGINAL .IMPROVEMENT SCHEME. Amdkbsskd only to the Christian Philan TIIUOI'ISTS OF QUEENSLAND. ttt( There can be no doubt that one of tho most benevolent.and humane measures of the late parliamentary session was the one pro- pounded for nmclioraling Ibo condition of pur unfortunate aborigines.
