WOOL. SrBJOCCED are the views of several wool brokers on the prospects of the wool trade :— Messrs. Balmc and Co. say:— 'A very limited private inquiry for wool still prevails, and sales by dribblets continue to be made to meet current needs. Of the whole, SOW hales, however, withdrawn from the late auctions, we doubt if more than 2000 to 2500 bales at the most have been disposed of. The postponement of the Febmarysahs till the 23rd of that month wiUalloweonsumersanddealersa longer interval than usual for working off then stocks.

SATCBDAY, MASCH S. 1675. The Sugar industry in Queensland has feirlj- reached a point at vAici the possi b3ity of its farther expansion on a. remunerative basis is enshrouded in uncertainty. The rate of production attained is about equal to the con sumption within the limits of the colony — vhere the dutj-on foreign importations ensnres the grower a lair margin of profit on Sugar required for local consumption. The question, therefore, that now de mands solution is, can bur planters, with the existing drawbacks of dear and scarce labour, successfully compete with die planters of Manritins, Java, Manila, and other countries, where labour is cheap and abundant? This question has lately been dealt with, at Mary borough and Brisbane, by sir. Robert Tooth, of the Yengarie Refinery, in a manner both interesting and instructive. That gentleman ct?t**^i as the result of his own experience and observation, that the manufacture of rmc sugars cannot, for the reason we have indicated, be carrie...

Our usually placid river had become a swollen, turgid, resistless torrent, breaking over its batiks in places, and Sweeping everything before it.

We were aware that the town of Boolburra, on the railway line about sixty miles from Rockhamp ton, had been submerged to a depth of from right to tune feet by the flood waters of the Dawson : that 400 to 500 people had been obliged to take re&ge m trees, on the roots of houses, and on rafts ; and that, having been rescued by roughly constructed boats and punts, these poor people suffered the loss of nearly all their apparel and the whole of their property.
