Port Douglas Reception to His Ex ellency Sir Anthony Musgrave. His Excellency arrived by the s.s. Governor Blackall, and the tide being favourable was conveyed ashore in the steam launch Ara- koon; and landed by 9:20 am., where an ad- dress was read by Mr. H. Smith, Chairman of the Divisional Board, to which his Excel- lency, replied thanking them for the hearty and cordial manner they had received him.

The vice-regal party was driven along the beach three miles and returned &nbsp; by the Red Road to Calley's Hotel, where luncheon was served. His Excellency then held an undress levee and several of the leading citizens were presented. At the luncheon the usual toast of the Q...

Our European Letter. IFEOlt oca o\TN COBKF.ai'OSDIKT.) COMMUNICATIONS hare taken place be tveen the. English and French Gov- ernments on the subject of thc trans- portation of French convicts to New Caledonia, the presence of such char- acters near the Australian colonies not being desirable. M. Perry said that with every desire to show every con- sideration for the wishes of Her Majesty's Government, and the feeling of British colonists, he could not admit that any foreign country had the right of preventing Prance from sending convicts. A man was master in his own house. Lord Lyons replied that he did not the least in the world take up that line of argument. As a rule every man was master in his own house, hut a friend occupying the house next door was justilied in askiinr him not to make his house a danger or a uuisanee. M. Ferry replied that he was desirous to show every considera- tion for the wishes of British colonists. A severo earthquake took place at S.20 a.ui. on Tucs-dav...

The Australian Haseuti. Wz have been requested by the secretary of the Australian Museum, Sydney, to give pro- minence to the following : It will he in the recollection "of many of our readers that among the more interesting of the exhibits in the unfortunate Garden Palace was a fine collection of weapons and implements of aboriginal manufacture,* and similar articles from the islands, displayed by the Trustees of the Australian Museum. This was allowed to remain in the building after, tia .close of the Exhibition, with the intention of again exhibiting it in connection with the Technological Museum, but the disastrous fire which destroyed that beauti- ful, edifice, on the Und September, 18S2, swept away, with its other contents, this en- tire ethnological collection. . -"Many specimenshave been lost which cannot be' replaced, ¿but the Traitées of the Museum ; have been endeavouring to form a new col- lection; and have succeeded, with the ex ^penditure of over JEIUOO, and the assist...

%tl\ç 4£airn£ pont THURSDAY, JUNE 19, 1884. OXE of the greatest boons enjoyed by English people-is .thc right of being represented faithfully and in accord- ance with the best interests which ináy be involved. Cairns of to-day and hitherto presents but a sorry spectacle in this respect, if wo take by way of example the bungling and maladminis- tration ~ whicn has characterised the Divisional ' Boards . During the time which Cairns has been represented in this respect it has suffered from ignor- ance and self-interests, which have ruled the decisions of thc members of the Board. If we review the actions taken from the earliest, inception, of ;'the Cairns j Board we can only record a series': of blunders, the same occurring in other towns less favoured than this "would have, brought about an entire collapse, wliich ' did in part " occur with this favoured district of . rich resources. It is not to be wondered at, neither is it difficult to find a solution. To review the separate membe...

FOOTBALL AT BRISBANE. (To the Editor of the CAUTOS POST.) SIR,-Your Brisbane correspondent, of the 9th May, has altogether misquoted facts in connection with the above. No attempt was made by the players of the "Australasian Rules " to boycott or suppress the Rugby Union, the real question at issue being, who was entitled to use theQueen's Park on Satur- days, according to numbers of their respective playing members. The trustees of the Gar- dens finally 'deciding the matter as follows : " Australasian Rules," twelve Saturdays ; Rugby Union, five Saturdays. As to the best players leaving their clubs, I beg to state that the best Rugby players are the best players of the Australasian game, and none of them have left for the purpose of playing rugby only. Lastly, with reference to the intercolonial contests, there will be 1 game in Sydney in July, and "one Austral- asian in Brisbane during exhibition week. Yours, A:C., J. A. HAYES.

As matters are at present there is no public means whatever of spending an hour or two in reading the current literature of the day, or referring to any standard work, and thisit must be acknowledged is u want greatly felt in a town like thia. It is not every man who can have a well stocked library of his own ; but surely one cnn give their pecuniary support to a public institu- tion from which all tlerive an equal benefit. A community is bound to get intellectual^ dwarfish where there are no means of culti- vating the intellect ¡ and what better means is there of expanding the latent powers of the brain than bj' studying other men's thoughts.
