$he (Paittpimr. Vita tine Merit mori eit. BLACKALL, SATURDAY, FEB. 7. Wb bavebeard upon undoubted authority that the Government do not hold them selves bound to the regulations made by the last Ministry respecting the employ ment of Kanakas upon inland stations. The prohibition against their introduc tion into the interior has been removed, and already we hear of a few bands hav ing been engaged for stations in the Mitchell district. We think the Govern ment have done a very foolish thing. There ought have been some excuse for lit if labor were as scarce as in former | years, and if the country were as thinly populated now as it used to be. But under existing circumstances we arc sure the whole country will rise against Buch manifest injustice to those who are thus injured by what is little better after all than slave labor. Work for bushmen is scarce enough now that improvements to stations have been effected, and while public works are almost at a standstill, and if what little em...
