Local Items. We have to acknowledge, with thanks, the receipt of the votes and proceedings of the Legislative Assembly, and various other Government papers and reports. Rumours are current of the impending birth of another journal in Cairns. Judging by the quarter from which the rumour   emanates and the auspices under which it will appear, we would suggest that out of compliment to its sponsors, should it attain a baptismal age, it ought to be christened " Hobson's Choice, or the Divisional Board Advocate." An archaeological journal de-   voted to explaining the ideas, objects (if any), customs, and peculiarities of a, physio- logically, interesting but useless and anti- quated race.     Complaints are becoming very loud on the subject of the constant late arrival of the   mail steamers from the South, and the conse- quent delay in the delivery of Southern correspondence from the Post Office.
