SUPPLY OF WATEB TO BRISBANE. Tbe following is a copy of tbe Report drawn up by the Surveyor-General, on tbe sources available for the supply 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 of Brisbane, it is scarcely necessary to advert to the inadequacy of tbe existing sources from which the inhabitants now de rive a scanty supply, except 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 now the more remote sources of supply may be rendered available at a rea sonable 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 the features of the country afford facilities for storage at a higher level than the point where tlie water is...

THE COST OF IMMIGRATION. As most pertinent to tbe discussion which has of late so folly engrossed tlie public attention concerning the present scheme ol emigration, its cost, and its failure ; and to snow that the Government anJ Parliament did not run into that scheme without having reliable evidence of its high cost and of the dangers attached to it, both of mal versation and inefficiency, we copy in full Appendix D. to tlie evidence of the Right Rev. Dr. Quisn, laid before the Committee on Immigration. This document will speak for itself, and remove every shadow of foundation for certain assertions recently made by tbe apologists of the Government and their Commissioner.
