Tho motion of which notice has been given by Alderman Nonns for to-day's meeting of the Municipal Council, refers to a subject of great importance both to the municipality and -tho.neighbouring country on both sides of tho river. That a bridge is much wanted everyone must admit, but as to whether tho Muni- cipal Council shoulddirccUycntorupoti so gigantic a: svork, there is very much difference of Opinion. Alderman Nonns' motion proposée that " immediate etepB*' be taken by the .Council " towards the " erection of a bridge over tho Fitzroy " on the site approved by their resolution " of 2nd March last, and. that a com " mitlee of the whole Council be " appointed to consider fliïâ bring up a " report upon tho ways and means of " constructing such bridge."

A HUMOUR ia current to the.effect that his Honor Mr. District Judge HIRST is about to take up his residence in Rockhampton. Wo bave made in- quiries into the matter, and find that négociations are going on between the Government and Mr. HIRST on this subject. It is understood that the Government wisli the JUDGE to reside hero, but that lie objects to change lu's residence except under certain condi- tions, which have not yet been made public. Thc Act requires each District Court Judge to reside within his district.. Gladstone being within tho northern district, and Mr. HIRST having pur- chased a house there at great expense, is not unnaturally averse to thc proposed. Rockhampton establishment. It appears", in fact, that tho Government ¡javo no right to dictate to a judge in this matter, so long as thc provisions of the Act as to residence are complied with. But tho public iuterest requires that tho judges should reside where the chief court business is transacted, and for that reaso...

THE lender writers of tho Australasian aro very smart'and often very inaccurate. On tho Polynesian slavery question they are iuvariably and hopelessly, and, wc fear, knowingly and wilfully wrong. The issue of 17th February contains o' characteristic outburst of injured virtue and righteous indignation, the pretext being tho arrival of a " water-logged slaver" at Cardwell. Had this ' been published on receipt of first intelligence of the picking up of the schooner, there might have been some excuse for the writer, but as some days before the article appeared the news hnd been flashed through the colonies that tho "water-logged Blaver" was the Fiji prison hulk " Peri,'*' tho misstatements and ptótíífo-philanthropy 'find, smart writing of the article aro alike indefen- sible. It is a perfect gem tn the way of a sensational paragraph, and therefore we reproduce it entire.

Ile belonged to the class of oil residents who found themselves made suddenly rich by the possession of oil territory, whose unthrifty soil had, for many years pre- vious, afforded them a scanty subsistence.

TUE arriv.il of a largo clipper vessel in Keppel Bay leads us to again urge tho desirableness of opening up direct com- munication between this port and Great Britain. Tlie exports of onr three lend- ing products from this port during the post year, as per Customs returns, were, wool 2733 tons, tallow 1872 tons, and copper 1032 tons-making a total of C537 tons, exclusive of preserved meats, hides, sheepskins, etc., etc., nud of a not inconsiderablequantity shipped coastwise. The producers of these 6537 tons of exports were mulct in the sum. paid for freight to Sydney, and in return they .were charged the Sydney importer's profit aud cost of freight for all their supplies. The system, therefore, cuts both ways to tho disadvantage of the producer, and imposes a tax upon all North Queensland investments which operates prejudicially to the interest of the whole people.
