Correspondence. [We do not hold ourselves responsible for the opinions of our correspondents.] (To the Editor of the CAIRNS POST.) SIR,-I read from the columns of your valu- able paper that there has been a petition signed by the settlers of this district re- questing that a native police camp be established on Mulgrave Reserve, which &nbsp; I must say is much needed. Will you kindly allow me the space to show how the depreda- tions by the blacks are keeping the district back. At one time I endeavoured to plant a few acres of potatoes on my selec- tion, and the growth of the crop gave me an immense satisfaction, upon which I reckoned on making a good return. Just as they were near ripe for gathering the whole of my patch I discovered had been cleared during the night. There had been no noise whatever, and the cunning these aboriginals exercise is something wonderful. I made a second effort, and determined this time to keep a better watch for the safety of the crop, but I reg...
Our Brisbane Letter. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) [Newspaper Article] — Cairns Post — 3 July 1884
Our Brisbane Letter. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) THERE is trouble ahead here for the employers of coloured labour, such as sugar planters or ottars engaged in tropical agriculture. Xew Ireland --vas declared as a place at which labour .could not be recruited on aceouut of the boys being unfit for plantation work, and now islands in" the vicinity of New Guinea are to be closed, lt requires no prophet to know that the daysof Kanaka labour are numbered, -and it is very apparent that the trade cannot be carried on much longer. It will be straugled to death by the regu- lations. The trouble of the schooner Heath at Mackay shows to what ex- tent shipowners are now likely to suffer. I may give you an idea of this case from the official records. The Heath arrived in Mackay early in the month with upwards ot" SO recruit« ou ?board, but the Ivunakua are utill-unde livered. lt was found on the vessel's arrival that the boys did not under- stand the nature bf their agreements, at least the Go...
Our Sydney Letter. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) [Newspaper Article] — Cairns Post — 3 July 1884
- I Our Sydney Letter. (FEOII OCE Otl'S CORRESPONDENT.) No sooner have we recovered from the excitement of the news that no less than five terrific explosions, supposed to be the handiwork of the cowardly and bloodthirsty dynamiters, have taken . place in London than the startling in- telligence reaches us that emmissarics of this lively set intend paying a visit here in Sydney to have a shivoo among our public buildings, accordingly the incoming City of Sydney had to undergo a rigorous examination at the hands of the police. The. search, however, brought forth nothing, "the O'Uonovan Rossa" crowd being very, eospicuous by its absence. There are some parts of old Sydney that would be none the ? worse for a little dynamite, that is pro- vided humanity could be got out of the way while the improvement was going on. An application is at present being made for tlie release from the lunatic asylum of a lunatic named Creswell, on the ground that he is the only Original Arthur Orton. Prom ...

The Cairns Post. THURSDAY, JULY 3, 1884. [Newspaper Article] — Cairns Post — 3 July 1884
The Cairns Post THURSDAY, JULY 3, 1884. WE read from our Port Douglas con- temporary the remarks of Mr. Walsh at a banquet given to Mr. T. Campbell [???] ... that he was one of founders of that town, and they had always come off best in its fights with their neighbours. He expressed every confidence in Port Douglas, and that it would get the railway terminus if fair play is awarded. He also spoke of £14,000 having been expended on a dray road over the Cairns range without any result, and that Cairns had no right to expect a railway in consequence. It would be useless to go over the same ground with respect to the railway route taking the same track as a dray road. That has been so fully discussed, and the fallacy of it admitted, so that argu- ment upon the question is discarded by all persons of consistent intellect. The portion of the remarks we would prefer to speak of is the fact of Port Douglas boasting of always having come off best in its fights with its neighbours. We are not...
