I SttVERM, articles have lately appeared in our daily contemporary of Brisbane bearing upon a question in which this district ls jmrticularly interested-we mean, the encouragement of agricultu- ral pursuits. It is true that Monsieur THOZET has, with praiseworthy industry and enterprise, demonstrated the capa- bilities of the soil on the banks of the j Fitzroy for thc growth of a number of products ; and it is also true that thc ' same gentleman has won a prize at thc j Queensland Exhibition for his leaf to I bacco and cigars ; but the question i?, ! whether the success achieved in this in- dividual instance will act as an incentive to further effort. We maj- elevate our eyebrows in astonishment when we bear of the size and flavour of Monsieur THOZET'B grapes ; we may placidly and ] apprceiatingly puff the smoke we draw i from one of bis " Rockhampton cigars ; " I and we may metaphorically pat him on I the back, and assure him of future suc ! cess as the reward of a continuance in we...

AN ABORIGINAL SQUATTER. The Ipswich correspondent of the I Courier, writing on she 11th instant, j remarks :- j With reference to William Bird, Esq., ' thc dark complexioned gentleman who j aspires to be a squatter, I believe this is the fourth application he bas made for a ron. I should be glad to believe that his next application, which I un- j derstand he has been recommended by j the Colonial Secretary to make in the ' same quarter that be made the fiit,t, would be successful. For whatever ob- jections there might be to eiiteitaiuing an application of so unusual a kind, they would be more than counterbalanced ty the probable benefits which would ant* to the aborigines. If the savage eau once be stimulated to enterprise by the hope of enriching himself, his ameliora- tion ought, according to all experience, to follow rapidly. This Bird was edu- cated and baptised by Mr Threlkeld, and married at Toowoomba, by the Rev. 5ir Glennie, to a white woman. Mr. Lowe referred to him in his ...
