SUPPLY OF WATEB TO BBISBAHE. Tbe following is a copy of the Bcport drawn up by the Surveyor-General, on the sources available for the snpply of the city of Brisbane with pure water :— ''*? In this report, on the means by which a supply of pure water may be conveyed to the city oT Brisbane. it»-*arcoly necessary to advert to the inadequacy of the existing sources from which tho inhabitants now de -:..- - .Mntv ttitnniv evAMit to state that they are not capable of being rendered suffi ciently copious or free from impurity to meet the requirements of even the present popu lation. It therefore becomes necessary to consider how the more remote sources of supply may be rendered available at a rea Bouable cost. The great economy of maintaining a sup ply of water by gravitation, as compared with the cost of pumping by steam power, has caused the general adoption of this mode, wherever thprfeatures of the country afford facilities for storage at a higher level than the point where the water ...

A scene which occurred at the meeting of the Municipal Council on Tuesday last, was strong evidence in favour of this propoBJtioOTL Ald|pian PerarE, a SSf«th respect^o a motion m relation to the cost of the Fire-bell, and resigned his seat in the CounoiL Being an old servant of the public, who had filled the JiSgh office of Mayor, the ratepayers made' allowance for his want of temper, and some of his friends having advised him on his rashness, he consented to return to the Council again, and he was re-elected without opposition. So far all was well. The single fault in the public career of John Petbie would soon hare been forgotten. The sequel, Jiowever, proves how often per sonal vanity attributes public action to its own merits rather than to the true cause — a disposition to overlook* ...

NOTES ANO JSIJzSWS. A little fellow, aged about 7 years, was adrift this morning in the streets of Brisbane, and made the tbtroughfares rather hideons with his piteous ' yowls.' Tha question naturally suggested itself: — ' Who fa his Other, who la his mother t ' Bis lisa sister I Hu he a brother 7' The police couldn't answer the questions for it is positively foolish to Bupposu that a policeman most be a walking Encyclopedia, of all useful knowledge. But they were equally interested in the issue of the ques tion as was ever the author, ' Tom Hood,' or the sympathising public. They took him by (fie hand. How significant is that one sentence! It certainly conveys a lessen of humanity. They took him to a police sta tion. That sentence does not sound as philanthropic as the last. But they found the father of the ' prodigal son.' TbU atoned for all. He proved to be ** a son of JK«t,;'t ^^kisJjfteViname, whois ? resident io thstmnr onl of 'FortStado Valley.' And Kent senior, rejoiced, ina...

The case occupied considerable time in trial, and about four o'clock the Chief Justice commenced to sum up. He stated that tlie question for the jury to consider was, whether they believed that the defendant, Mr. Collins, had acted with reason able or undue haste in bringing the origi...
