Correspondence &nbsp; We do not hold ourselves responsible for the opinions of our correspondents.] (To the Editor of the CAIRNS POST.) &nbsp; &nbsp; SIR,–In the HERBERTON ADVERTISER of July 2, I read an extract from the PORT DOUGLAS CHRONICLE, headed- "Herberton Railway," and I think a few comments on it will not be out of place. I will pass over the first paragraph which relates more to surveyors Lane, Grayson, and Monk, who will be better able to deal with it than I am. What I wish to call attention to took place at the banquet given to Mr. T. Campbell, M.L.A., at which were also present the Hon. W. H. Groom, Speaker, Mr. Chubb, M.L.A., Q.C., and others. The P. D. CHRONICLE thus reports :-" In reply to the to:ist of his health Mr. Campbell said, referring to the railway, he was aware that the great question agitating the minds of the residents of both Cairns and Port Douglas was the Herberton and Cairns rail- way, and that the Government would deal with it...

Cure for Hydrophobia. [Newspaper Article] — Cairns Post — 17 July 1884
Care for Hydrophobia. M. Pasteur has added another benefit to those which he has already rendered to humanity. He officially announces that he has just discovered, not a preventative remedy against hydrophobia," but an infall- ible cure, by which'a 'human being, bitten by a mad dog, may be rendered proof against the consequences of the bite. This treat- ment consists of three successive inocula- tions of the hydrophobia virus, in two different degrees, immediately after the bite, and before the hydrophobia has declared it- self in the patient. Ii. Pasteur has not yet discovered the microbe of the disease, and he cannot pro- ceed, as he has done with anthrax, to pre- serve dogs by preventive vaccination. He can, however, a.t on dogs which have been bitten as on human beings, and he is certain that if all bitten dogs were 6ubmitted to this treatment hydrophobia would sooner or later disappear, inasmuch as according to his theory, which does not concern itself with ti,., urÎKLQa.1 caus...

Walker ville. Bt AS OUTSIDER. It may be considered presumptuous for an outsider to" hare any opinion of a locality to which he is a comparative stranger, and still more so to express that opinion in the columns of a local journal. I feel, however. sure that my readers will agree with me on one point, which is :-That familiarity breeds indifference rather than contempt when it "applics'toa localityT and"lhat consequently an outsider perceives beauties in it that are long since hidden to those to whom the - scene has become an everyday object. r ? The first thing,* perhaps, that strikes the -visitor to- Cairns -is- the- splendid shelter for - -. » vessels its harbour affords, und its un- doubted superiority as a port over any o' the ' t ' coast towns -from Brisbane northwards. .*.

Ox Saturday last good tin stone wa3 got at the Great Northern p.c. at the 210ft level in another shaft, the deepest point in the other shaft being 113ft. This is aa important dis- covery, inasmuch as it proves the permanency of the lo 'es and their payable nature at a depth. It also goes to show how necessary cauital is fej-the-developement of tile tin in- dustry, and how futile it Î3 for individual working miners to undertake to work profit- ably the tin mines. Asimilar discovery at a depth waa recently made at the Great Western at Watsonville, and the Caledonian at the same place was the deepest down iu the district. Reverting to the Great North- ern and other claims on the same hill, as also those on fie opp>»ite hill and in the neighbourhood of the Big Ben, many of whijh have actually boeu abandoned for the want of means, I am positive they ¡ire all tin bearing properties which ia time will b...
