Our Brisbane Letter. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT. ) THE selection of a Postmaster-General to succeed Mr. Garrick, who has gone to England as Agent-General for the colony, has at last been made, and the honour of the appointment has been conferred on the Hon. C. S. Mein, a Brisbane solicitor aud a member of the firm of Hart, Mein, and Flower. Mr. Mein is not new to the position to which he has been appointed, he having held similar office in a previous Liberal administration. He is looked upon as a man of very moderate views, but has first-rate abilities, is personally popular, and men and papers of all shades of politics congratulate the Government on the latest accession to their ranks. It was feared at one time that the busi- ness relations between the firm of which Mr. Mein is a member and the leading members of the late Govern- ment would have precluded him from laking office under Mr. Griffith. It was thought that he would not be suffi- ciently strong a partisan, or that self- ...
