THERE was a horrible tragedy at the Victoria Plan tation, on the Lower Herbert River, on June 7th., The Kanakas employed there are all new chums from ! New Ireland, and a difficulty is found to exist in.] getting the "hang" of the affair, because they can not speak a word of English. I herewith give the gut of what an old back-tracks mate of mine sends me: A lot of the Kanakas On Victoria Plantation were down with fever, and were placed in a temporary structure that was used!as a hospital and was pad locked every night. (On the morning of Friday, June 8th, when the attendant unlocked the hospital, a ghastly scene of carnage met his view.. The " boys " were lying in all directions-some huddled up, others writhing in agonising attitudes, while groans, gasps, and stertorous breathing filled the air. Blood was freely splashed in sickening streaks over walls and floor, while the latter was covered with billets of fire wood, half rbroke...

*' Fear God; Speak evil of none ; Stick to the Truth j and never be done." - BRISBANE t SATURDAY, JUNE 30, 1883. Mate-Deserting Hungerford, As a Type of Land-Sharks. EVEBY reader of FIGABO knows what I have said about dry-as-dustlandocrats who swallow upthefcona fide settler, the hardy pioneer who takes up a reason able >un, works it, lives on it, and improves it-who hasn't dummied the land solely for purposes of specu lation. I have given you types of this sort of land shark, compared with whom Archibald Forbes* mongrel bastard, of a acock-limpet and a horse-leech is but as a lizard to a boa-constrictor. That you might verify facts for yourselves, I have named gentlemen whom' I regard as types of that body of dry-as-dust squatters--the Tysons, Wienholts, and De Satges, of this community. You may have fancied that my statements were overdrawn, but I have now to place before you some facte which will show you that-what I have stated is actually going on now in Queensland. The coun...
