26 GARDENING CALENDAR. Newly compiled expressly for Puce's AteANecs, by Ma. WALTER HILL Superintendent of the Botanical Gardens, Brisbane. JANUARY. Fruit and Kitchen Garden.-Watch the fluctuations of the weather, and endeavour to do all sowing and planting whilst the ground is in a mellow state. Sow turnips, carrots, celery, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, spinach, French beans, peas, lettuce, radish, melons, and cucumbers. Broad beaifs may also be sown, but they cease to be profitable at this late season ; earth up, and top those advancing. Plant savoys, cabbages, cauliflowers, &c., &c. Gather herbs in flower for drying, and articles for pickling. Ground should be loosened among fruitbearing trees, &c., &c. Examine vines and orange trees ; regulate and remove all useless growth, and thin superfluous fruit off the orange trees, &c., &c.; gather, during dry weather, any kind of grapes which may ripen this month. Flower Garden and Shrubberies.-Continue to carefully regulate the growth of the twiners, but avoid tying thenooo close, and allow them to grow according to their nat abit as much as circumstances will admit. Weed and war well the flower beds of geraniums, verbenas, petunias, lobelias, &c., &c.; dig up and store bulbs as soon as the leaves are withered. Dahlias-examine the early ties that they do not pinch ; loosen *em if they do, or the wind will easily break them at that P t. Meld.-Break up land for wheat ; sow barley for green crop ; plant maize for a winter crop, in rows four feet apart, and plant in each row three feet distant. Dig out the early crop of potatoes, for if left in the ground they will rot. Persevere in keeping down weeds in the cotton and sugar plantations. FEBRUARY. Fruit and Kitchen Garden.- During dry weather gather any kinds of fruit as they ripen ; oranges, poaches, &c., which were

27 GARDENING CALENDAR. 27 too tender to be budded during the preceding month, may now be subjected to that operation. Brocoli and a few of the principal table vegetables, such as cabbage, peas, turnips, carrots, onions, leeks, and salads, should be sown. Eschalots should now be taken up if the leaves appear to decay. Thin out to about six inches apart the spinach, and turnips to double that distance, which were sown the early part of last month. ' Plant out Brussels sprouts, and continue to gather articles for pickling. Remove all failing crops as soon as they cease to yield profit. Cucumber and melon beds must be daily inspected..flower Garden and Shrubberies.-Now is the best season for observing the effect of the arrangement of colors of dahlias, and if any alteration is deemed necessary, it should be carefully noted down, which will greatly facilitate its execution in the proper season for planting. Sow various kinds of annuals ; keep the shoots of the chrysanthemums and other flowers neatly tied up, and remove their flowering stems as soon as they cease 'to be interesting. The roots of tigrida, oxalis, &c., dec., may now be taken up, and after being dried, stored in proper bags till wanted. Field.-The different varieties of sorghum arriving at maturity should be cut, and the seed placed in an airy building. Green provender for the stable or stockyard during the winter months, is to be provided by sowing Cape barley and lucerne. Tares or vetches should be sown for the same purpose, and in order to support the weak stems of the vetches, they may be mixed with a bushel of rye seed to every two bushels of tares. The potato seed prepared last month should now be planted. MARCH. Fruit and Kitchen Garden.-This is the period in which to lay the foundation of a sure supply of vegetables, onions, leeks, peas, turnips, carrots,, parsnips, beetroot, cabbage, cauliflower; savoys, celery, &c., &c. The January sown cabbages will now be ready for transplanting. It will be found a good planin digging ground to leave it in shallow ridges, eighteen inches 'or two feet apart, with some dung placed under the hollows in which the plant must be set ; a few may also be planted in rows one foot apart, and before they become large enough to crowd each other in winter, every intermediate one may be drawn for present use, leaving the others to come to maturity. Cauliflower, Brussels sprouts, celery, &c., &c., may also be planted. Ripening seeds to be daily gathered. Continue budding orange and other fruit trees during cloudy weather.

28 28 GARDENING CALENDAR. Floeber Garden and Shrubberies.- Patches of some of the most showy annuals should now be sown in vacant places which usua lly exist in the edges of clumps and borders. The following are some of the best :-Ageratunn M exican, Browallia elata, Caleeolariascabiosefolia, Clarkia pulchella, Collinsiabicolor, Calliopsis marmorata, Gaillardia pitta, Gomphrena globosa, Lupines Hartwegii, Phlox Drumondii, Reseda luteola, Zinnia elegans. Herbaceous perennials, such as phloxes, pceonies, &c., &c, may now be divided for increase. Roses may now be pruned and the suckers removed. In pruning out back to a good eye two or three inches from the origin of the young wood ; robust growing kinds should not be pruned so severely as the weaker ones ; strong shoots pegged down on the surface at nearly their full length (of the Geant de Battailles ) for instance, will throw numerous flowering shoots all the way up. Bulbs such as Amaryllis, Crinum, IA llium, should now be planted. Field.- This is an excellent time to plant a crop of potatoes. Sow wheat, oats, luce rn e, all kinds of grass seeds for pasture, orhay. Maize arriving at maturity should be gathered and placed in an airy and well ventilated building. Cut and house tobacco. Gather cotton as it comes to maturity. APRIL. Fruit and K itchen Garden.-New plantations of oranges, loquats, olive, bananas, and pine apples may now be made, in order that the roots may get hold of the fresh soil before winter. Make sowings of peas, broad beans, cabbages, and saladmg. Look well after thinning your crops of turnips, spinach, lettuce, before they become weakly and drawn through standing too closely 'together. Earth up celery during dry weather. Collect and store pumpkins. Stir the surface of the soil deeply among growing crops to admit air to the roots, and keep down weeds. Flower Garden and Shrubberies.-Proceed with the propagation of favorite sorts of roses, which may be wanted to increase, either by budding, cutting, or layers. Remove suckers from worked plants. ' Prune geraniums, &c., &c. The present month is a favorable time for transplanting large size evergreens, shrubs, trees, and herbaceous plants, so that the plants will have a chance of pushing a few roots to enable them to resist any cold dry winds during winter. Plants shifted this month will require but little attention in the way of watering in spring, compared with others transplanted late in winter. Field.-Sow wheat, oats, barley, and maize, and the different sorts of sorghum should be gathered as they ripen. Potatoes will require to be earthed up and kept clean of weeds. This is

29 GARDENING CALENDAR. 29 genera lly a busy month for cotton gatherers ; great damage is frequently sustained by leaving the cotton too long on the plant beforedt is gathered. MAY. Fruit and Kitchen Garden.-Look over bananas, pine apples, oranges, and other fruit frequently, and gather it as it becomes ripe. Orange trees should be thinned : the selection of sorts which are ascertained to be the most suitable for our climate is as follows :-the Bahia, the Maltese, the Sabina, the St. Michael's, the Siletta, the Canton Mandarin, the Emperor Mandarin, and the Thorny Mandarin. The best variety of lemon is the Lisbon ; and the West India Lime also thrives admirably, and should be largely cultivated. Plant orange, loquat; and flat China peach trees. Go over the stocks of trees which were budded in March, and let the bandages be loosened. Earth up celery, and attend to keeping a succession of peas, turnips, carrots, beet, parsnips, and a supply of salading. Tran t strawberries, cardoons, rhubarb, salsify, scorzonera, shirronions, &c., &c. The cutting and drying' rymg of herbs, as they are ready, should be attended to. Flower Garden and Shrubberies.-Any of the shrubbery borders which may require a dressing of fresh soil and manure should be attended to. Tie up and stake chrysanthemums. Hyacinth and such like bulbs should be planted. Field.-Oats, wheat, barley, may still be sown, and the gathering of cotton must be attended to. The third cutting of tobacco is also an object of considerable importance to be done during this month. JUNE. Fruit and K itchen Garden.-Proceed with the pruning of vines, and the flat china peach trees. Hoe between cabbage, cauliflower, brocoli, Brussels sprouts, &c., &c. This should be frequently done to the growing crops through the winter. Transplant as in last month with strawberries, rhubarb, seakale, &c., &c. ; sow cabbage, onions, &c, &c. ; gather capsicums,,:hills, and tomatoes as they ripen. Flower Garden and Shrubberies.-As cold nights may now be expected, scarce tender plants, which it may be desirable to secure before they are injured, should be carefully covered when there is the least cause to appaehend danger; root and prune geraniums ; plant and remove roses. This is also the proper season for transplanting red Pyrus japonica, Persian lilacs, mock orange, laurustinas, rhododendrons, azaleas, Guelder rose, cor-

30 30 GAEDE1IU G CALENDAR. chorus japonica, and Weigela roses. See to securing a good stock of cuttings of petunias, geraniums, &c., for spring use. Field.-Sweet potatoes, yams, arrowroot, ginger, &c.,., may now be dug up and used. The potato land is now to be ploughed up, and, in warm situations, a few may be planted. Clover, lucerne, and all kinds of grass seeds for pasture may still be planted. JULY. Fruit and Kitchen Garden.-The general thinning and pruning of the peach, nectarine, apple, pear, fig, mulberry, orange, vines, and other trees should be finished. Grafting of the orange, lime, lemon, &c, &c. should now be proceeded with. Plant fruit trees, as peach, cherry, apricot, quince, apple, pear, almond, and orange. This month is also regarded as the best for making new plantations of vines. Sow cabbage, savoy, Conve Tronchuda, (or sea-kale cabbage,) French beans, parsnips, parsley, mustard, cress, and herbs of all sorts. Plant onions, broad beans, &c., &c. Manure deciduo uit trees, &c., &c. Flower Gar Shrubberies.-Now is the period for laying the foundation o a fine law u, the pride of British gardening. Let all fresh turfing be complete, and take steps to fill up the beds in the flower garden as they are cleaned, for the purpose of contributing to the enjoyments of spring. Plant and remove shrubs, roses, &c., &c. Re-pot fuschias, begonias, acbimenes, gloxines, &c., for early flowering. Field.-Prepare the ground for potatoes, tobacco, maize, &c. Wheat, barley, oats, may be sown in late districts. Winter should hewer be neglected. AUGUST. Fruit and Kitchen Garden.-All operations connected with planting fruit trees, as apples, pears, quinces, almond, peach, cherry, apricot, orange, &c., &c., should be finished. If left after this month they will require much attention in watering, especially if large plants are removed. Grafting should be proceeded with in the order in which the buds break. Sow cauliflower, leeks, cabbage, spinach, chervil, cress, endive, cucumber, pumpkins, melons, &c., &c. Clear and loosen soil among growing crops. Flower Garden and Shrubberies.-Early overgrown herbaceous plants may now be divided. The exterior portion of the stools should be reserved, and the interior rejected. Continue planting amp.ryllis, crinums, and other bulbs. Flowering shrubs, such as magnolias, arbutus, camelias, azaleas, &c., may be transplanted. Field.-Plant potatoes, rice, maize. Sew sorghum saccharatum in seed beds for planting out ; transplant when six inches high, in rows three feet apart ; let the plants be a foot from

31 t#abdentng CALENDAR. 31 each other. Tobacco seed should also be sown this month in beds. SEPTEMBER. Fruit and Kitchen Garden.-Let sowings of cucumbers, melons, pumpkins, vegetable marrows, French beans, carrots, parsnips, beet, tomatoes, capsicums, &c., &c., be made. Transplant cabbage, savoys, couve tronchuda, &c., &c. Cut asparagus and rhubarb. See that recently transplanted trees are not suffering for want of water ; get all grafting completed, and give support to the early peach trees. Destroy caterpillars, and keep the land free from weeds among the vines. In warm situations loquats, strawberries, &c., ripen this month, and should be gathered. Flower Garden and Shrubberies.-These will now be becoming a little cheerful, and the plants rapidly making up the time lost in winter. Beds of petunias and verbenas, &c., &e,.,. should be pegged down so as not to be broken in stormy weather. Flowering shrubs may still be transplanted with care. Make layers of camelias, azaleas, magnolias, tea, coffee, &c. This is a good time to sow German stocks, asters, lobelias, &c. Amaryllis, gladoulus, &c., &c., begin to bloom this month ; protect them from boisterous weather. Plant dahlias in good rich soil. Field.-Sugar-cane, cotton, maize, yams, arrowroot, sweet potatoes, and artichokes may be sown and planted this month. Transplant tobacco. Earth up the potatoes and maize which were planted last month. Make progress in hay making. OCTOBER. Fruit and Kitchen Garden.-Attend to the vines frequently for the purpose of stopping and shortening any gross shoots, and keeping the growth nicely regulated. Gather strawberries, mulberries, Cape gooseberries, &c., &c., as they ripen. Sow melons, cucumbers, pumpkins, peas, French beans, onions. cabbage, and salading. Flower Garden and Shrubberies.- Roses will be the great attraction, and these should be frequently looked over, removing decaying flowers ; if these are allowed to hang on the plant, they have a very unsightly appearance. Stake and plant out dahlias, and make sowings of showy annuals. Dig up and store in a dry place any bulbs, so soon as the leaves are withered, to prevent them from rotting or unseasonable growth. Continue planting verbenas, geraniums, fuschias, &c., &c. Field.-The crops of potatoes, maize, &c., now begin in earnest to show promise of reward for the cultivator's toil. This is the best month for planting sugar-cane, ginger, arrowroot, yams, turmeric, sweet potatoes, earth nuts, &c., &c. This is also

32 32 GARDENING CALENDAR. the best month for sowing cotton seeds. These should be sown three in a hole ; let the holes be four feet apart on sterile soil, and six feet apart on fertile soil ; the seeds are better for being steeped in water a few hours previous to planting. Keep down weeds, and loosen surface of the soil among growing crops. NOVEMBER. E. iit and Kitchen Garden -Loquats, pine apples, bananas, guavas, &c., &c., such as are ripe or ripening, should be gathered when fit. Vines : loosen surface soil, keep down weeds, replace stakes where required, and destroy caterpillars and other insects. The peach, nectarine, apricot, almond, apple, and pear trees should be relieved of their superabundant and unhealthy fruit ; care being taken, in performing this, not to destroy the trees by shaking them, and thus injuring the heaviest of the fruit by parting it from the trees before it is in proper condition. Sow Hibiscus rosella, melons, cucumbers, pumpkins, &c., &c. Transplant capsicums, lettuce, &c., &c. Flower Garden and Shrubberies.-Ply scythe, hoe, and rake diligently, and at all times cut off all plants that have done flgwermg. Transplant annuals, choosing a showery day, and shade them. Field.-Attend to the plantations of sugar cane, arrow root, sorghum, ginger, cotton, &c Destroy weeds while young, and for this purpose use hand and horse hoes, as soon as the crops will admit of the operation. The crops of wheat will be ready for the sickle, and will require the farmer's careful attention to get the harvesting finished. Hay making should be finished this month. The cutting should be commenced when the grass is fully ripe ; remembering, however, that seeds ripen much after being cut, and if care be not taken, the grains will fall out. DECEMBER. Fruit and Kitchen Garden.-Grape and other fruit should be gathered as it becomes fit. Flower Garden and Shrubberies.-There is little to attend to in this department at the present time, except keeping everything and every place as neat and tidy as possible. Dig up and store bulbs as soon as the leaves are withered. Trim edgings and rake up all rubbish, and gather flower seeds as they ripen. Field -Cotton plants, &c., must be kept free from weeds, surface soil loosened, and the superfluous shoots thinned out. Tobacco crops are now ready for topping. All side shoots are to be pulled out, and the superfluous leaves stripped o$, suffering only the larger and more fleshy to remain. Dig out the crop of potatoes, if ripe ; for if left in the ground, they will rot.

40 $nrbu's tnfi fr S p tent. THE remarkable accuracy with which the predictions of Mr. SA%BX concerning the weather were fulfilled in Queensland during the year 1864, induced the Proprietor of this Almanac to procure a copy of his work, with the view of extracting some information from it for this year's publication. Mr. Saxby, it may be stated, is " Principal Instructor of Naval Engineers to H.M. Steam Reserve," and is stationed on board H.M.S. Devonshire, at Sheerness. Previous to the issue of the work* from thich we make the subjoined extracts, Mr. Saxby was favorably known as an author,, but it was not until the year 1861 that he commenced his prognostications in the Nautical Magazine, edited by Capt. A. B. Becher, R.N., F.R.A.S. He (Mr. S.) foretold, in his first letter (published in September), the fearful %eather by which the English coast was visited during the early part of the following November ; and his predictions, since then, ha\e almost invariably proved to be accurate. Our readers have heard very much of here h r. Saxby, as to cause whose each name bad-weather has become day so to far be current dubbed " Saxbyish ;" and by reading the following extract from his work, they will learn by what means he is enabled to arrive at such marvellous conclusions. We will now let Mr. Saxby speak for himself The following is what Europe now hears of as ' Saxby's Weather System:'- I found that the moon never crosses the earth's equator or reaches her position of stitial colure, without a marked * Saxby' s Weather System; or, Lunar Influence on Weather. By s M.,,L Y, &N., &c., &c. Second Editaon. Longman sad Co., London : 1664.

41 SA$EY'S WEATHER. SYSTEM. 41 disturbance of the atmosphere occurring at the same period. Therefore I began by combining these lunar changes and actual weather disturbances into the relationship of 'cause and effect.' In considering the cause, there was little difficulty in tracing it to disturbance of the electric system of the globe at such periods, in consequence of changes in the effect produced in our atmosphere by variations in the intensity of the attraction of the sun or moon, or both, as they vary their positions with respect to the earth. I had before me as a guide the well-known and recognised influence of the moon's attraction upon the tides. I find that the phases of the moon, properly so called, do not, perceptibly, affect the weather. That the period of new moon has a marked influence on the weather when occurring near the periods of lunar equinox or lunar stitial colure, and that this influence is heightened considerably if at the same time the moon be in perigee. That the mere fact of her being new or in perigee is of no importance at any other times. So that when the lunar equinox or stitial colure, occurs at the same period as the new moon in perigee, the greatest atmospheric disturbances to which our earth is liable may then be expected with certainty of fulfilment. Now, either the moon crosses our equator, or is at her stitial colure (or greatest distance from our equator) about once in a week (it is possible that one of each may happen in the same week, according to the inclination of her orbit,) therefore there is an atmospheric disturbance from this cause, say once a week, and it is invariably traceable, as will presently be further explained. So ttiat this ` Weather System' is extremely simple. I fear many distrust it on account of such simplicity. For if we condense the definition of the above theory, it is mainly a mere question of the moon's declination. As shown by reports from abroad, I believe that its effeoa are universal, even at the regions of the trade winds, but there with less power, and this is easy to be accounted for if we consider the cause of the air currents of the earth. The method in which the weather is affected by the forces of the sun's round moon's attraction, is in the necessarily resulting sudden condensations of moisture in the atmosphere, or in the increased evaporatiop of moisture, according as the air is in a state of positive or negative electricity in a district, when disturbed by the sudden affection of the whole electric system at the periods above denoted. Now, sudden condensation of moisture in the atmosphere produces a partial vacuum, into which surrounding air necessarily rushes; hence the periods of lunar equinox, or colures, are

42 42 SAXBY'S WEATHER SYSTEM. periods of `atmospheric disturbance,' the intensity of such depending; much on localities ; and where such condensations or evaporations occur upon a large scale, some days may elapse before equilibrium is restored. High winds at these periods are not always accompanied by falls of mercury in the barometer, since no accumulation of the electric fluid (which is imponderable) can increase the weight of the atmosphere. A rising or steady barometer is not to be trusted at these periods, as severe gales frequently occur at such times without influencing that instrument. But a falling barometer at these times should never be disregarded. Atmospheric disturbance manifests itself in ways not always recognised by an unscientific observer. Were no absolute gale is blowing, its proximity is to be detected by the swift motion of `scud' (light, detached, fleecy clouds), and, in the absence of these, there may often, at the lunar periods, be seen dark angry clouds packed in long thin horizontal lines (strata). The months of April, May, June, and July show the lunar effects much more feebly than other months, although, as I have said, even in these, disturbance at lunar periods is plainly traceable by the meteorologist. The above disturbances operating as they do at the period of the lunar equinox, or stitial colure, being the immediate result of electric action, I call primary or electric, to distinguish them from another kind of atmospheric disturbance, which I call secondary or mechanical, and for the following reasons, viz. Whether from the nearer proximity of the equatorial regions of the earth to the moon, or from the peculiar action of what is termed thermo-electricity,' certain it is that such are the places which are subject to the greatest amount of precipitations or epndensations. We may, therefore, easily conceive that atmospheric disturbances are there generated on the grandest scale. In those parts of the globe where it is known that the air contains the greatest amount of vapour (from the greater evaporations within the tropics), a sudden disturbance of electricity causing such an extensive precipitation, would require an immense flow of air to restore equilibrium, and that the air assumes a whirling motion is only what we see in all fluids under similar circumstances, but that this whirling should always, in the northern hemisphere, be in a direction contrary to the hands of a watch, is no more than we should expect from the circumstances of the earth's motion on its axis being from west to east, while on the southern side of the equator, the whirl is in a contrary direction. These whirlings of air, moreover, have a pro gressive motion, always in a direction from the equator.

43 SA.IEY 'S WEATHER SYSTEM. 43 Hen ce arises a means of distinguishing my theory into two distinct heads thus:- The primary effects of disturbance are immediate and stationary. The secondary are progressive, and they travel a considerable distance. The latter are known by the name of Hurricanes, or Cyclones as they are also called, and they require some further ill ustration. A ll seem to agree that Cyclones, which occasionally prove so destructive in the West Indies, come from the south-eastward, between the N.E. trade winds and the equator, originating in the region of about 10Q to 15 porth latitude, and (it is worthy of remark) they seem to form in all cases upon the grand wale, at or near the line of no magnetic variation, and commence their course upon it for some distance. It is so not only with the Atlantic Cyclones, but (as I showed some years since in the Nautical Magazine and also before a section of the British Association at Cambridge, Professor Challis presiding), it is also peculiar to those which derive their origin at or near the parallel of 10 south latitude, to the southward of Java. In corroboration of this I give the words of Admurc.l Fitz Roy, at page 65 in the Weather Book for 1863:,, The hurricane, or Cyclone, is impelled to the west in low latitudes, because the tendency of both currents there is to the westward along the surface; although one, the tropical, is much less so, and becomes actually easterly near the tropic, after which its equatorial centrifugal force is more and more evident, while the westwardly tendency of the polar circ ui t diminishes, and therefore at that latitude hurricane Cyclones cease to move westward (re-curve, ) then go towards the pole, and subsequently almost easterly (in some cases,) though commonly towards the north -eastward, ti ll they expand, disperse, or ascend. It is a mistake to suppose they travel very far," &c. And further (at page 112) he says:- "Whatever may have been the duration of anyone cyclonic storm in the Atlantic, in the West Indies, or in the Indian Ocean, no instance has yet been obtainedhere of a definiteand reliable character, of a rotatory gale lasting or travelling beyond four days." Now this opinion is contrary to that of Professor Dovi, who declares that in general the velocity of progression of the centre increases " as soon as the storm changes its course at the edge of the torrid zone," to reach which usually occupies nearly the whole of that period of four days. Dovd even gives instances of what he believes to Be authenticated Cyclone tracks, in which some have occupied ten or eleven days in sweeping the West India Islands and reaching just southward of Newfoundland (e.g. August 17th, 1827). He even gives details (in his

44 44 SAXBY'S WEATHBS 3YBTEM. Law of Storms, page 178) as under, and it is important to me to quote this, because my `Weather System' seems to require a loner duration of Cyclones than four days, to which Adnflraal Fitz Roy would limit them. Professor Dove says :- "The storm which commenced in tin neighbourhood of Ma rt inique on Aug ust 17th, 1827, reached St Martin and St. Thomas on the 18th, passed to the N E. of Hayti, on the 19th reached Turk Islands, on the 20th the Bahamas, on the 21st and 22nd the coast of Florida and S Carolina on the 23rd and 24th Cape Hatteras, on the 21th Delaware, on the 26th Nantucket, on the 27th Sable Island, and Porpoise Bank on the 28th, and thus trave ll ed 3,000 nautical miles in eleven days." But, further, the main branch of the equatorial current sets from the equator to the north-westward, and merges into the Florida stream, which takes the easterly direction in its full sweep across the Atlantic ; and then, whether it be caused by the higller temperature of the Gulf Stream or by some magnetic or electric repulsion of the continent, the course of Cyclones seems to be absorbed into the line of direction of the Florida Gulf Stream, which shunts them as it were across several contiguous lines of equal magnetic variation, and pl'sces them upon others in the direction of which (or very nearly) they reach the British Islands. Thus Cyclones always approach us from the southward and westward, and proceed towards the north-east-' ward ; and this known fact affords the Board of Trade the opportunity of warning the northern ports of an approaching Cyclone ; for there is another peculiarity about Cyclones which ordinary gales are free from, and it can easily be explained. If we stir water in a tumbler, it will be seen that the centre of the fluid is depressed in proportion to the velocity of the fluid, and it is just so in the case of a Cyclone. The rapid whirling motion of the air yields to the law of centrifugal force and the air leaves the centre, consequently, within the vortex the height of the air becomes lowered, or we may say the weight of the air becomes lessened, so that it causes the mercury in a barometer to fall in consequence of diminished atmospheric pressure. And, further, the same law which induces a vessel in sailing through the water to push a small wave before it, causes the mass of whirling air, in its progress through the atmosphere, to push its atmospheric wave before it, which necessarily, by increasing the height of the column of air, slightly raises the mercury : this I have frequently noticed, and have called it the 'premonitory wave' of a Cyclone. I observed it at daylight on November 13th, 1861, and have often since, and early in the forenoon of that day announced in person to the underwriters of Lloyds', as an indisputable proof that the Cyclone which I had predicted for the 14th was then not far from no; and, to may knowledge, telegrams by London shipowners were sent to

45 9LXBY '!{ WEATHER SYSTEM 45 the coast to warn accordingly, and in time too, for, as before observed, the hurricane or Cyclone reached the Downs in its fury early on the 14th. My reasons for so earnestly warning against the 14th were these : Cyclones, like all other general atmospheric disturbances, are produced at the periods of lunar equinoxes and stitial colures; and forasmuch as the stitial colure happened on the 5th, near the time of the new moon in perigee (before explained), I expected unusually well-developed Cyclones would be then generated in the regions of equinoctial calms ; and again, because they travel at the rate of about sixteen to twenty miles an hour, and through a space of upwards of 4,000 miles before they reach us, I have found it very accurate to allow upon an average nine days for the time of their passage to Great Britain ; and as nine added to November 5 gave the 14th, I in consequence, as on other occasions, predicted accordingly. It frequently, however, happens that their passage occupies ten, eleven, or twelve days or more, for they travel at various velocities, so that when `due' we should watch the barometer carefully, as we would for the arrival of a mail. The surprise one naturally feels at the prolonged maintenance of the gyration of a Cyclone, diminishes when we notice that, according to Maury and others, as stated by Captain ale Kerhallet (in Considerations Generates sur l'ocean Atlantique, and published in the Annales Hydrographiques of 1852, and also in the Nautical for 1855, &c ), no less than three branches of the main Atlantic Gulf Stream are directed entirely from it between the parallels of 40 and 50 north, thus, it is fair to assume, raising the temperature of the southeast side of the main current above that of the north-eastern side. Hence, then, if Cyclones travel along the main course of the gulf stream of the Atlantic, they will pass between two masses of air of unequal density; and inasmuch as the mass on the left hand or northern side is the denser, so will the whirl of the Cyclone be in a measure maintained towards the left hand,' precisely in the direction it assumed at the time of its formation at the tropic. In other words, the Cyclone will roll along its boundary of denser air, as a ball would along a vertical plank which confined its lateral direction. Now it appears also from Captain de Kerhallet that this main branch of the Gulf Stream crosses a point in the Atlantic at about 50 north latitude and 30 west longitude ; but it would be highly interesting to see proof of the occurrence of Cyclones actually in that locality. For if we can only ascertain beyond doubt that Cyclones are ever found near that portion of the Atlantic, we may safely conclude that, inasmuch as all agree

46 46 BAXBY'S WEATHER SYSTEM. that Cyclones are formed in the Tropics-and the Admiral even explains the mode of their formation there-we may, I say, safely assume that Cyclones found in lat. 50 north and long. 30 west have travelled from the tropics. Of course, Cyclones in that district of 50 north and of 30 west would pass northward of Great Britain, and such moreover would.be expected to prove heavy and dangerous to shipping. It so happens that I can set this at rest if it be longer questioned. With that anxiety to help me (in the solution of so grand a problem as weather predicting) which has been singularly manifested by officers of the great mail fleets of the kingdomand especially at Southampton (whose interests in causing a theory so pretending as mine to be fairly tested no one can doubt-shared also by the members of the Dock Company), a letter, dated Dec. 18th, 1863, duly reached me with some particulars which I think of very great importance. I have not the pleasure of knowing Mr. Hedger, but he has certainly much assisted me in the confirmation of my opinion (and I thank him), by communicating an account from Captain Nicholson, of the Royal Mail steam-ship Adriatic, on her homeward voyage in November last, as to a terrible Cyclone in which he was caught for seventeen hours, close to the very spot to which I have called attention, viz. at lat. 50 north and long. 30 west : of course this Cyclone was on the track of the W d Gulf Stream, and precisely what we wanted to hear about. : s z s x s s z x s Very erroneous notions are extant as to the form of these cyclones ; many suppose that viewed (if possible) from a distance they would appear like tall whirling cylinders or columns of air ; but if we consider the diameter of some of them to be, say 500 miles, while their height can scarcely be more than a mile or two, such a Cyclone is merely a disc of rotating air, an eddy upon an enormous scale, deeper or thinner as indicated by the barometer.

The preceding apply to all parts of the earth's surface, even (in a diminished degree) to the trade belts. N.B. If the day marked prove calm and still, distrust the day after, and especially the second day after. The changes vary in intensity, but even at quiet periods they may be plainly traced in the scud flying with a velocity totally at variance with the state of the air at the earth's surface, and the clouds at such times generally have a liny or stratified appearance, which usually indicates approaching rain. N.B.-As a general rule, electric agency is feeble in May, June, and July, as compared with other months. If, therefore, any changes take place in those months, they will most likely happen on some of the days marked. My own impression is that the winter of 1865 is more likely to prove frosty than windy. In bringing the above to the test of experience, a few memoranda may prevent unintentional injustice towards the system. 1. Do not consider the prediction a failure if the weather prove moderate. The above days are dates of change, not of necessity periods of bad weather. 2. Watch for changes of wind at such times, and what sailors call its uneasiness -flying about from point to point with unsteadiness 3. A characteristic of these lunar periods (when they prove quiet) is fog and haze, very often setting in the day before or a few hours before the date given. 4. When the mercury falls for a day or two before a lunar day, expect its effects to last just about so long afterwards. The lunar period being the middle of the time of disturbance. 5. The barometer is not always affected by those lunar periods-but there is a tendency in the mercury to either change its direction up or down at such tunes, or the apex of a curve projected by it will happen at such period. 6. The rising of the barometer on or after the " second day after " generally indicates the returning of fine weather.

CAPE MORETON is the north-eastern point of Moreton Island, and is visible from a ship's deck eight leagues. When first seen from the southward it appears to be detached, as the land between it and the higher points of the island is very low. The outlying dangers are as follow:- Smith's Rock.-This danger, though of small extent, has not more than seven feet water over it at low water. Its position is nearly midway upon a line drawn between the outer extreme of " Cape Moreton" and Flinders' Rocks," and bears from the Lighthouse N. by E. s E. (easterly), distant two miles. A ship can keep seaward of it by night so long as the light is not brought southward of S.S.W. a W., or, by day, she will be, at the least, one-third of a mile outside of it so long as " Mount Tempest" (bearing S S W.) is open of Cape Moreton ; while, if bound into the bay, a safe passage between it and the Cape will be ensu re d by not opening the " Ridge-tree Hills" I

114 114 PORTS AND HARBORS: northward of " North Point," with which they close, but are seen over, on the bearing of S.W. 4 W. A black nun buoy is placed S.S.W. two cables' distance from the rock. In thick weather a stranger, in navigating himself into the pilot ground of Moreton Bay, should, according to the wind, hug the foot of the Cape, which is bold on the south hand, or borrow upon the breakers of Flinders' Rocks on his north hand, rather than make free with the midway line of approach. Flinders' Rocks.-These are about one-third of a mile in extent, and are dry at half-tide. They lie N.N.E., distant three miles from the northern projection of the Cape. The sea always breaks upon these rocks. Hutchison Shoal has not more than 22 feet of water on it. It is dangerous to vessels with a heavy draught of water, and should be avoided by Coasters on account of- its broken water when the 12L-knot E.S.E. current sets again st a strong easterly wind. This nucleus of a danger is situated two miles N. 4 W. from Flinders' Rocks, Cape Moreton Lighthouse bearing N.-, E., distant five and a-half miles, and the Southern Glasshouse W. by S. The Lighthouse in line with the centre of Flinders' Rocks, and bearing S. 4 W., leads half-a-mile OUTSIDE this shoal ; or, to ensure being INSIDE, the Lighthouse should not be brought southward of S. by E. ; while, to pass northward of it, the G lasshouses should not bear westward of W.S.W.; but fisher. men can find it, for a take of " schnapper," by bringing Mount Tempe9t over the Yellow Sand Slip at North Point bearing S. 4 W., and the Glasshouses bearing W. by S. By night, vessels are to the westward of the shoal while the pne Light at the Yellow Patch is in sight. is coming from the southward, requiring Pilots, should, LpBSsiug Cape Moreton, haul up round the North Point of heton Island, and keep a good look-out for the Pilot Vessel oi Boat, as the case may be-the arrival of any vessel off the Port requiring a Pilot being signalled from the Lighthouse to the Pilot Station. Should the wind be to the southward of E.S.E., or the westward of N.N.W., vessels may anchor under Moreton Island in safety (with the Yellow Patch bearing about S.E.), fr om one to one and a-half miles from the beach. N.B.--Strangers making the Port of Moreton Bay would do well to pay attention to any signals made from the Lighthouse for their guidance. Directions for Ship Channel.-Vessels intending to enter Moreton Bay by the Ship Channel should, after passing about

115 SLILINQ DIRECTIONS. 115 one mile north of Cape Moreton, steer W. 4 N. until the Black Perch Buoy off the outermost extreme of the East Banks is passed on the port hand, or until the N.W. extreme of Comboyuro Point bears S. by E. Mount Tempest (the highest land on the island) will then bear S S E., and the Lighthouse E. by S. ; S. The depth of water will be seven and a-half fathoms at low water, and the Buoy A will bear S.W. about a mile and a quarter distant. The Glass Houses will be seen in clear weather, with the highest (Burwa) bearing W 4 S. After passing the Perch Buoy a vessel may haul up W. by S., or, should the Buoy not be seen, a vessel may steer from the position given by the foregoing bearings a S.W. by W. course for about two miles, which will take a ship close to the northward of BuoyB, chequered black and white, Mount Tempest bearing S.E. a S., and the Lighthouse E. yl S. A ship will then be to the westward of the East Banks, and may steer for Moreton Island (bearing in mind that the tides set directly across the channel), by keeping the Buoy B and Mount Tempest a quarter of a point open on the port bow, and passing the Red Buoy on the N.E. extreme of the West Banks, bearing about S E. 5 S. one and a third miles from Buoy B on the starboard, and the black buoy on the south extreme of Hixson's Bank on the port hand. The breadth of the channel between the East and West Banks is about half a mile, and the banks are generally plainly discernible from an elevated position. Tildes.-In the channel between the East and West Banks the first of the ebb sets strong to the N.E. over the Banks. After half tide it takes a more northerly direction ; and later, it sets about N. and N.N.W. When the tide is flood, and the wind easterly, vessels, on rounding B Buoy, should anchor until slack water, as it is useless to attempt the south-easterly reach while the tide is setting dead to leeward over the West Vessels in charge of pilots may, however, proceed throw west channel, by passing about two cables to the weat'w t of the red buoy on the north-east extreme of the west bank, in about 3-4fathoms at low water, increasing gradually to seven fathoms. The banks on either side of this channel are plainly visible from a vessel's deck. When Comboyuro Point bears east, the water will have deepened to twelve fathoms, and will continue at that depth until it again joins the main channel to the northward of the red buoy on the south-west spit off Cowan Cowan Point. Strangers should not make use of this channel. Good anchorage in Yule's Roads will be found on the Sixfathom Bank, abreast the Pilot Station, when the Ship Patch is just open to the westward of Cow an Cowan Point. N.B.-Strangers are advised not to attempt this channel I*

116 116 PORTS AND HARBORS: without, a pilot, the Middle Channel offering many advantages to vessels drawing less than twelve feet water. Mariners are warned against the possibility of the buoys, in exposed situations, being temporarily absent after heavy weather, and the probability of their being for a time replaced by buoys of a description differing from those previously notified. Directions for Middle Channel.-Vessels, after rounding the north point of Moreton Island, which is deep-to within about a cable's length, may haul up and steer W.S.W. until the Lighthouse comes on with a white beacon to the N.E. of the small Yellow Sand Patch. Keep these marks on until the Ship Patch is open of Cowan Cowan Point. When Comboyuro Point bears W.S.W., a vessel will be near a black buoy placed on the eastern edge of the banks, which buoy she will pass on the port hand, and before the Ship Patch opens of Cowan Cowan Point a second black buoy will be passed, which is placed on the N.W. spit of the bank. After hauling up, keep the Ship Patch open of Cowan Cowan Point, and proceed towards Yule's Roads. With even a fair wind, vessels drawing thirteen feet water should not attempt this channel without a pilot. Directions for Enterinq at Sight.-Two Kerosine Lights are now exhibited on the north end of Moreton Island, and one on Cowan Conan Point, for the purpose of assitmg vessels at night to pass into Moreton Bay through the Middle Channel. One light is placed a little to the north-eabtward of the Small Yellow Patch, and shoes a fixed white light from about N. 44E. to W. by S. This light in a hue with the Lighthouse leads in through the Middle Channel, in not less than sixteen feet water at low water spring tides-the line of lights passing at one cable's length northward of the Inner Middle Channel Buoy. Vessels coming from the northward will be to the westward of Hutchison 's Shoal and Flinders' Rocks while this light is kept open. Vessels from the southward will open the light shortly after rounding the north point of Moreton Island. The light is visible at a distance of at least seven or eight miles. The second light is placed on Comboyuro Point, showing a faint red to seaward, i.e. from about N. by E.-, E. eastward. Vessels will be clear of the east banks while the red light is kept open. It is obscured between N. by E. 4 E. and N.N.W., opening out at the latter bearing as a bright white fixed light, and remaining visible from thence to the W.S.W. of Comboyuro Point. It is again observed between W.S.W. and S. I W., and again opens out between S. 'z W., and S. E, southerly. The following directions are to be observed by vessels entering at night:

117 SAILING DIRECTIONS. 117 Steer with the light on Small Ye ll ow Patch on with Lighthouse until the bright white light on Comboyuro Point opens out (the red light on Comboyuro Point having been shut out just before entering the Middle Channel). Then haul up and steer south, until the light on Cowan Cowan Point is opened out (the eye of the observer being seventeen feet above the water line). By keeping Cowan Cowan Point Light open, vessels will be well clear of the western edge of the Venus Bank. When the Yellow Patch Light is shut out, a vessel is just abreast the elbow of the bank between Freeman's and the Middle Channel. Due allowance must of course be made, after hauling up to the southward, for the proportionate speed of the vessel, and the rate of the tide, which runs N.N.E. and S.S.W. from two to three knots. The Comboyuro Point Light will be obscured on an E.N.E. bearing, and again open out when bearing N. z E. After opening out Comboyuro Point Light on this bearing, vessels will, by keeping this Light in sight, be to the westward of the shoal water off Cowan Cowan Point, and to the eastward of the S.W. spit in Yule Roads, and of those portions of the S.W. banks on which there is less than fifteen feet water at low water. The Light on Cowan Cowan Point will be obscured when it bears E. I N., and will open out NE. N., remaining visible between that bearing and N.N.E. 4 E. While the Light on Cowan Cowan Point is kept in sight between these hearings, a vessel will be clear of the S.W. banks on her starboard, and the Middle Bank on her port hand, being in not less than three fathoms on either side of the channel. Until, however, the Ship Patch bears east, vessels in working to the S.W. may stand across fr om the line of eclipsed light off the S.E. edge of the S.W. banks, until the Light again opens out in a line td,-the eastward of the Middle Bank. Soon after dipping the Cowan Cowan Light, the Lightship at the Bar will be visible above the horizon. Vessels arriving in the port at night, and wishing to anchor on the Six-fathom Bank in Yule Roads, should, while keeping in sight the Light on Cowan Cowan Point, anchor as soon as convenient after opening out the Comboyuro Point Light _on the N. 4 F. bearing. Directions for Freeman's Channel.-No vessels should make use of this channel except constant traders to this port, as the banks are continually undergoing changes in their formation, and the position of the channel is always altering. It is high water, full and change, at Comboyuro Point at 9h. 30m., and the rise is from three to seven feet. Strong south-easterly winds cause the greatest rise, but, during the

118 118 PORTS AND HARBORS: prevalence of westerly winds in winter, the rise is sometimes scarcely perceptible. The general set of the flood in the bay is to the south, and the ebb to the north, though in many places the direction of the stream is altered by the shoals..directions from Comboyuro Point to the Bar -From Comboyuro to Cowan Cowan Point the shore is tolerably bold of approach. Vessels should, however, keep the Ship Patch open to the westward of Cowan Cowan Point. Anchorage may be obtained, as before stated, on the Sixfathom Bank, abreast of the Pilot Station, or off the position marked on the charts as the Watering Place, in from twelve to fourteen fathoms, half a mile from the shore, where wood and water can be obtained. Vessels of light draught of water can anchor on the edge of the bank, in about two and a-half fathoms. The shore between Cowan Cowan and the Ship Patch is fronted by a narrow bank, upon which there is not more than five feet at low water. The south part is about a mile off shore, but the anchorage inside is not accessible for large vessels. When Cowan Cowan Point bears about N \ E., a direct course can be steered S.S.W. for the River Bar, passing a Red Buoy on the S W. spit on the starboard, and a Black Buoy on the Middle Bank on the port hand A Second Red Buov, carrying a red flag, is placed off the S.W. spit of the S.W. Banks. Anchorage off the Bar will be found by the lead, according to draught of water. For vessels of heavy draught the trees on Mud Island should be brought to bear about E. by S. a S.; Lightship about S. by W. Directions for Crossing Brisbane Bar. -To cross the Brisbane Bar, keep Mount Gravatt on with a small dip in the near bushes to the westward of the entrance of the river, until Mount Cotton is seen to the westward of the Inner East Beacon, when a vessel should haul up for Mount Cotton, keeping that hill between the West and Inner East Beacon, which marks clear the banks on either side. At night, keep the light on the West Beacon open to the westward of the red light on the East Beacon-(this light should not be opened more than one-fourth of the distance between the E Beacon light and the Lightship)-and pass the East Beacon at half a cable's length. SOUTH ENTRANCE TO MORETON BAY. Two red beacons-visible from the Flat Rock-are now placed on the South extreme of Moreton Island, to enable vessels entering Rous's or the Amity Point Channel to pass between the outer banks and over the Bar in the deepest water, viz., seventeen feet at low -water sprin g tides.

119 BAILING DIRECTIONS. 119 This Channel is chiefly available for Coasting Steamers during daylight, when there is not a heavy swell setting in on the coast. It is not recommended for the use of sailing vessels, except in fine weather, and with a commanding breeze, that will allow them to lay four points to the windward of their course. The coast current runs at from two to three knots to the southward, close to the outer edge of the Bar, and at a lesser speed over the outer portion of the banks, so that, during northerly winds, vessels should be careful not to allow themselves to get to the southward of the line of Beacons until well inside the North Break.. The tides set fair through this channel at a rate varying from three to four and a-half knots, until they come within the influence of the coast current. The sea always breaks on the north bank, but the space over which the sea breaks on the south bank varies with the amount A swell on the coast. Seven red and six black buoys and beacons mark the channel for crossing the Bay towards Mud Island between the inner banks. There is not less than two fathoms at low water spring tides in this channel, except at a point of junction with the Cleveland Ship Channel, where the depth of water is never less than nine feet at low water, spring tides. Directions.-Vessels from the southward intending to enter Moreton Bay by the South or Amity Point entrance, or Rous's Channel, must, after passing either inside or outside of the Flat Rock, keep the northernmost Sand Patch on Moreton Island on the port bow, until the two Red Beacons on the south extreme of Moreton Island (the innermost of which is the higher of the two, and is surmounted by a Red Ball) are in a lme : keep these beacons in line until inside the north break, when haul up to the southward gradually, keeping at about a cable's length from the edge of the North Bank, which is steep-to, and always shows. When near the detached sandbank, haul up for the N.W. extreme of Stradbroke Island, and round the Red Buoy off the shoal extending to the S.W. of the detached sandbank, after passing which, keep an ay west, and pass at two cables' length from the S.W. extreme of Moreton Island, which is steep-to. Leave the first Black Buoy on the port hand at a distance of about half a cable, and haul up W. by S. for the S.E. end of the high land on St. Helena. After passing the second Black Buoy and two Red Beacons on the starboard hand, haul up S.S.W. for a Black Beacon about two miles distant, keeping it on with the eastern extremity of Mount Cotton, passing the third Red Beacon placed on the edge of a sandspit on the star-

120 120 PORTS AND HARBORS: board band, and continuing the same course until hbre ast the second Red Buoy, when keep away W. by S. W' S., and pass the fourth Red Beacon ; fr om thence keep away for and pass on the port hand the third Black Beacon at a distance not exceeding half a cable, and steer out W. by N. 1 N. in mid -channel between the inner Black and Red Buoys. When these buoys are passed, a vessel is in the Ship Channel to Cleveland, across which a course must be steered for the centre of the opening between Mud and St. Helena Islands ; a mid-channel course must be kept between these islands, and a vessel may fr om thence steer for the anchorage off the Bar. A Red Buoy is placed off the S.W..extreme of the shoal off Mud Island. Vessels outward -bound through the South Entrance should, after passing Mud Island, steer for the north extreme of high land on Stradbroke Island, until a sma ll smooth-topped cone near the north end of Stradbroke Island bears E. by S. 4 S., when they should haul up and steer for it, passing the inner Red and Black Buoys, and passing the inner Black Beacon as previously directed. Plans of the South Entrance can be obtained at the Port Office. N.B. Masters of vessels about leaving Brisbane, and wishing to pass out by the South passage, can ascertain the state of the wind and sea by referring to the Weather Table at the Port Office, which is transmitted daily fr om Cape Moreton by Electric Telegraph.

121 SAILING DIRECTIONS. 121 White with red under feet. Red with white under White with green under Green with white under Green with red under WIDE BAY. GREAT SANDY ISLAND STRAIT, AND THE MARY RIVER. A VESSEL having made Double Island Point (abold bluff headland safe to approach to two cable lengths) should look out for arock awash (which always shows) lying due north about a mile from the Point. The rock is safe to approach on all sides to a cable's length, and there is a good passage between it and the Point. Having passed outside the rock at P. convenient distance, steer N.W. by N. After running on this course four or five miles, the entrance will be seen opening out to the southward of the termination of the high land of Frazer's Island. Donot approach the heads nearer than five miles, as the shoal water forming the Bar extends out nearly that distance. It is steep-to, and shows itself by the discoloration of the water, in fine weather, and by the break, if there is any swell on. Stand to the northward until the hollow in the centre of Baupal Mountain (a very conspicuous mark on the mainland) is shut in behind the high land on Frazer 's Island, the North Head bearing about S.W. by W. I W. Keep these marks on until across the Bar, when haul up for the entrance. Should Baupal Mountain be obscured by thick weather or other causes, bring the North Head and the point of land which forms the South Head on with each other (the sandy beaches and not the bushes touching each other), and cross the Bar with these marks on. A vessel will not have less than three fathoms upon the Bar if following these directions. The spit running out in an E.N.E. direction from the South Head nearly always breaks, and will easily be seen. Borrow a little on the south side as you approach the entrance, to avoid a spit running out a third of a mile from the North Head. This is the best entrance for a stranger, as there is less chance of mistaking the marks, as the Baupal Mountain is the only high land visible in that direction. It shows itselftmmed.iately after passing the high land of Double Island Point, and is about twenty miles from the coast In westerly winds or smooth water there is a channel further to the westward, with 22 or 31, fathoms in it (according to tide). To enter by this channel, after passing Double Island Point at a

122 122 PORTS AND HARBORS: distance of half smile, and inside of the detached rock, steer N.W. by N. When the entrance is beginning to show, a sand patch will be seen at the south end of a range of low sand hills or cliffs, which terminate at their northerly extreme in a low sandy point. Bring this patch on with an abrupt elbow or fall in the high backland of Frazer's Island. Keep these marks on ; the ship's head will be about N.W. 2 N., and Double Island Point NEARLY right astern. You will shoal suddenly upon the Bar, to 22 or 3; fathoms (according to tide). When on the shoalest part, Baupal Mtntam will be just opening out to the north" and of the South Head. Keep the marks on. You will carry 3 to 32 fathoms three quarters of a mile; after which the water Bill deepen to five fathoms, when you may haul round the spit and steer for the entrance. In strong S E. or easterly winds the sea breaks heavily upon the Bar, rendering it unsafe to cross ; and this is particularly the case in the summer months, when the sun is to the southward of the Equator,-more especially in the months of February, March, and April, when the wind is almost always blowing from the S.E. and eastward. A vessel e ould have notice of the state of the Bar by the swell on the coast before reaching Moreton Island, where she might shelter, or might, if she thought it desirable, run round the north entrance by Breaksea Spit. With south, south-easterly, or easterly winds, there is, however, good shelter under Double Island Point. But supposing the swell is not great, the Bar is quite safe to enter, though breaking across. The break is always much less towards high water. In leaving Wide Bay, do not attempt to PROCEED to SEA if there is any break across the Bar, as it is attended with great risk and danger, from the short abrupt sea which comes in, in the shape of rollers, with great velocity. After entering the Heads, the channel is clear fro5n side to side. Steer along the Frazer's Island shore at the distance of one or two cables' length. until abreast of the first high land ; then steer N.W. 2 W. The Fairway Buoy will soon be seensteer for it, and pass close on either side of it. When abreast of the buoy, haul up north, or steer for the highest part of the ridge of high land on grazer's Island. The lower beacon (red) will be seen a little on the starboard bow when abreast of this beacon (which leave a cable's length on the starboard hand) the channel beygnd is shown by four black beacons, which are placed on the edge of a bank, and are to be passed on the port side. The banks on either side of the channel are here steep-to. Continue a northerly course until abreast the second black beacon,- a N.W. course until abreast the third,-and a N.W. by W. course until abreast the fourth beacon. You will now

123 SAILING DIRECTIONS. 123 be, one-third of a mile N.W. by W.,' W. from the red buoy off the sand spit running out from Stuart's Island Haul round this buoy, within a ship's length, and steer N.N.W. I W., leaving on the port hand a large white beacon, which will be seen to the westward, and two black beacons beyond. Before passing the second of these black beacons, a large white and a red beacon will be seen near together to the northw and ; steer for the white beacon until nithin a cable's length, then keep away, and pass on the starboard band, within a ship's length, a second red beacon placed on the end of the spit The next beacon is black, and will now be seen in a N.N.W direction, and is to be passed on the port hand Then steer N N.W., until you see a black buoy, which is to be passed on the same side ;- pass also, on the port hand, within a short ship's length, a green buoy a shdrt distance beyond ;-it denotes the position of rocky ground in mid-channel. Abreast this rock is a shoal, on which there is not more than six feet at low water, From this point the tides separate, and run in opposite directions-one towards Hervey's Bay, and the other towards Wide Bay. Not far from the green buoy is a black beacon to the N W., placed on the port side of the channel-the round bush which formerly stood near the position of this beacon having been washed away. After passing this beacon, haul up N. by E. 2 E., and pass, on the starboard band, two red beacons-the second of which is placed on the N.W. extreme of a sand bank-and leave a black buoy on the port hand. A third and fourth red beacon will be seen to the N.E., defining the edge of the same shoal. After passing the third red beacon, a black beacon will be in sight, on with some low sandy cliffs on Great Sandy Island, bearing N.E. 1 N., and a black buoy in the same direction, but still further on, showing the extreme point of the spit. In hauling up to the northward round this buoy, two more black beacons will be seen bearing about N.W., which are also to be passed on the port hand. Hence, the channel follows the shore of Great Sandy Island (which is here low, and fronted with mangroves) as far as a low point : from this point the shore trends away in a north-easterly direction towards the white cliffs opposite the mouth of the River Mary. From the low point steer about N.W. for the dip at the north-west end of Woody Island. This course will take you to the Baste and of the Fairway Buoy. As you approach this buoy (which is to be left on the port hand) the heads of the Mary River will open out in a W.S.W. direction. The channel then runs exactly in a line between the mouth of the river and the white cliffs opposite on Great Sandy Island, and you will ca"from three to five and six fathoms as you approach the river heads. Pass at a distance of about

124 124 PORTS AND HARBORS: half a cable 's length from the extreme rocky point of the north head (which is marked by a red beacon), and steer for a sma ll dry sand bank, which will be seen about half a mile inside the mouth of the river, taking care not to shut in the heads with one another. Then pass, on the port hand, a black buoy, which lies off some rocky ground, and round a second black buoy, which will be seen beyond. Then steer to the southward for a white beacon, in a line with some high trees on the opposite side of the river, passing a black beacon on the port hand. Off the small island which lies on the port side of the channel there is a patch of rocky ground ; it bears W. by S. from the island, from which it is distant about two cables' length. It is marked by a red buoy, which is to be left on the starboard hand. After passing about a cable's length from the white beacon, keep away S.W. by W. W. towards the north shore, and steer for another white beacon, which will be seen in that direction. Two red beacons will be passed, which mark out the edge of the starboard shoal, and three black beacons (which will be seen on the port hand) point out the northern limits of the Horse-shoe bank. From this point a third white beacon will be seen on the south shore ; pass within half a cable's length of this beacon, and steer along the south bank of the river, and for a white beacon on Crab Island, which pass within a short ship's length, and steer for another white beacon on the south shore, passing (on your port band) a black beacon on the "Beaver" rock, and a black buoy a short distance above, which is placed on another rock. Keep the south shore on board-passing three red beacons on the starboard hand-until the next white beacon on the same side is reached ; then haul out a cable's length from the bank, and steer for Rocky Point, passing, on the port hand, but not too closely, a black beacon, vihicb stands well off the land about a quarter of a mile above the last white beacon. Pass Rocky Point within half a ship's length, and retain that distance from the shore all round the bight above the point, passing two black beacons on the port band. When a white beacon is reached, about half a mile above Rocky Point, haul off for another white, beacon off the north side of the "Brothers," and then again stand in for another beacon on the mainland. From thence you stand towards the south shore for a white beacon, bearing about S.W. by S., and after passing, on the starboard hand, a red buoy which points out the limits of a shoal, keep that shore on board until within about three quarters of a mile of Pettigrew's Saw-mi ll s, which may be recognised at a distance by a great extent of low-pitched galvanised ion roofing. A white beacon on the south shove points out the Alpot from which a course is to be steered for the Saw -mills, two black buoys being

125 SAILING DIRECTIONS. 125 passed on the port side. The channel over the Flats is very narrow, and has not more than seven feet of water on it at low water springs. After rounding the first long low point of land above the Saw-mills, the entrance to Saltwater Creek will be seen. Keep in mid-channel until past the creek, and then haul over to the starboard shore, until past a small low mangrove island, above which there are no other obstacles to the navigation-further than that the rocky shore on the starboard hand, before arriving at the township, ought not to be approached too closely. It is high water on the Bar at full and change at 8h. 30m., and about 9h. 30m. at the river heads. The flood tide through Hervey's Bay meets the flood through the southern entrance about the Round Bush. The spi rags run from three to four knots, and are very irregular. The rise and fall of the tide is from seven to ten feet, at the Heads, and from six to eight feet at the Bar. A stranger, after entering the Heads, should procure the assistance of one of the natives of Frazer's Island, some of whom are very intelligent, and have a good know ledge of the river. They will readily come on board, and w ill be found very useful. If care is taken to proceed wl'en the banks are uncovered, or not later than three-quarter's flood, the harbor is easily navigated, as the channels are all buoyed and marked off. It is to be observed that all buoys and marks painted red are to be left on the starboard hand in entering and going up Wide Bay and Mary River, and all buo}s and beacons painted black are to be left on the port hand. The red beacons are also round, while the black beacons are square. Nearly all the banks are steep-to, and have deep water within half a ship's length of them. MEMORANDUM RELATIVE TO THE ADVERTISING OF SHIPS LAID ON FOR MARYBOROHGH FROM PORTS BEYOND THE SEAS. Port Office, Brisbane, 4th October, IN consequence of the erroneous impression likely to be conveyed, to Masters and Owners of Vessels, from the name of Wide Bay being constantly associated with that of Maryborough, the latter port will in future be styled "Maryborough, Hervey's Bay," and not Maryborough, Wide Bay. The necessity for this is apparent- 1. Because vessels from beyond the seas, bound to Maryborough, instead of entering Wide Bay, pass ninety miles to the northward of it, and round Breaksea Spit.

126 126 PORTS AND HARBORS: 2. Wide Bay is described in The Admiralty Australian Directory as affording no shelter during gales from seaward; Wide Bay Harbor as only accessible by crossing a dangerous bar, with from two to three fathoms water upon it; and the channel from l fence towards Maryborough, between Great Sandy Island and the main land, as being hardly navigable for boats. 5. In Hervey's Bay a stranger will always find good anchorage under the north-west side ofgreat Sandy Island, until within five miles of Sandy Point. G. P. HEATH, Lieut. R. N., Portmaster. HERVEY'S BAY. VESSELS from the northward passing the land off Sloping Hummock, at a distance of about five miles, should steer about S.W. by S.; and vessels rounding Breaksca Spit at about the same distance, should steer about S W. for the Fairway Buoy off the north entrance to the channel leading through the banks into Great Sandy Island Strait. As soon as Woody Island can be distinguished, the two hummocks should be brought so as just to touch one another, taking care to keep the higher hummock the more eastn and of the two. With these Sparks on, and Point Vernon (a level piece of ground, bare of t rees, presenting a low rocky cliff to scanard) bearing S. by W., a veeaal will be near the Faire ay Buoy, which is black, and is to be lift on the port band. Thence steer S.E. by E. 2 E., passing a red buoy off the eastern extreme of the Middle Bank on the starboard hand, and a black buoy off the elbow of the forked bank on the port hand, until Leading Hill (a small peak on the high land of Great Sandy Island, formed by a clump of trees ) is opened out to the e ictward of Little Woody Island. A vessel may then haul up and pass half a mile to the westward of Little Woody Island, and will pass clear of the spit running off Woody Island, off the north extreme of which is placed a red buoy. From Little Woody Island steer soas to pass within a quarter of a mile of the more eastern of the two low bushy islands that will be seen to the southward. From this small island steer south, and pass a red beacon on the starboard hand, at a cable's distance, and when Baupal Mountain is seen over a dip in the trees on the south lie'id of the Mary River, steer with these marks on, until the north head bears W.S W., when haul up for the entrance, and proceed up the river as previously directed(p.p.123-4).

127 SAILING DIRECTIONS Vessels entering or I4aviug Hervey's Bay will find good shelter from north-easterly winds in the bight to the southward of the north-west point of Great Sandy Island, and during south-easterly winds, from the north-west point to Arch Chtf. During strong north-westerly winds, Hervey's Bay offers no shelter ; and as the atmosphere is generally very hazy during those winds, and the leading marks on Woody Island are nearly nine miles from the outer edge of the banks, strangers are recommended to keep to sea until the weather clears and the wind moderates. A spit runs to the northward of the north-west point of Great Sandy Island, to a distance of about two miles, the depth of water upon it graduahy increasing from one to three fathoms as you leave the shore. When inside the banks of Hervey's Bay, the best anchorage is off the White Cliffs. There is also a good anchorage for small craft between Woody Island and the spit which runs from its south-east extreme, northwards. Good water can be obtained from a running stream which flows over the beachyust to the northward of the White Cliffs. There is a pilot vessel stationed in Hervey's Bay and the Mary River, and, when practicable, vessels will be boarded outside the Fairway Buoy. INNER ROUTE FROM SANDY CAPE TO CAPE GLOUCESTER. THE Inner Route is the passage between the Great Barrier reefs and the east coast of Australia from Sandy Cape to Cape York, a distance of about 1050 mules There are two entrances into it from the south-eastward, one being the Curtis, and the other the Capricorn Channel CURTIS CHANNEL is entered between Breaksea Spit and Lady Elliot Isle, where it is 2b miles broad ; the centre of the entrance, in which is about 18 fathoms water, being from 8 to 10 miles within the 100-fathoms edge of the bank of soundings. The channel passes between the Bunker and Capricorn Groups and the main land from Bustard Bay to Cape Capricorn, then to the north-westward, along the coast by Capes Manifold and Townshend, and afterwards between 2nd and 3rd Northumberland Isles, and to the westward of the Percy Isles. The soundings are regular, and there do not.appear to be any other dangers than those already described ; but, being more circuitous than the Capricorn Channel, the latter should be selected by vessels proceeding direct to Torres Strait by the Inner route.

128 128 PORTS AND HARBORS: CAPRICORN CHANNEL is the broadest, shortest, and most safe entrance into the Inner route from the southward. It passes between the Capricorn group and the main land about Port Bowen to the westward, and Swain Reefs to the eastward, and then to the eastward of the Percy Isles ; its average breadth being about 60 miles. Soundings.-The depth gradually decreases from 80 fathoms in mid-channel, between the Capricorn Group and south extreme of Swain Reefs, to 30 fathoms abreast of Port Bowen. The bed of the channel is a continuation of the bank of soundings extending from Breaksca Spit to the Bunker and Capricorn Groups; the 100-fathoms edge of which, in mid-channel, being nearly in line between the Bunker Group and the south extreme of Swain Reefs. The soundings are regular right across, from Swain Reefs to the Capricorn Group, and to the main land, varying from 60 to 25 fathoms. The nature of the bottom sometimes differs, but in general it is either a very fine sand or a soft olive-colored clay and mud, with occasional patches of black shelly, or coral sand. Should the depth of water decrease to less than 40 or 35 fathoms in the vicinity of the Capricorn Group, it is necessary to keep a sharp look-out for the islands and reefs. Great caution is also requisite in approaching the south extreme of Swain Reefs, as there are 50 and 60 fathoms water close to it. Caution. -It may not here be amiss to remark that, although the lead should never be neglected in these seas, it must not be too implicitly trusted, as most of the reefs and coral patches (with which the northern part of the Inner route especia lly abounds) spring up so abruptly from the bottom that the lead frequently gives no warning of their vicinity before a vessel approaches too near to avoid them. A keen look-out from the mast -head, cool judgment, and ready action may, therefore, be urged as a general rule to ensure successful navigation amongst the reefs. To these hints it will be only necessary to add that a vessel should never be steered in the glare of the sun, except over such ground as may be safely navigated in the darkest night, as the glare makes it impossible to see the different colors of the water indicating dangers to be avoided. Tides.-The strength of the flood sets in about W. by N., and the ebb out in the contrary direction, from 12 to 2 knots ; but, from the prevalent south-easterly winds, it is to be presumed that a greater degree of north-westerly set will occasionally be experienced. From PERCY ISLES to CAPE GLOUCESTER.-There are two channels from the Percy Isles to Cape Gloucester, one to the eastward, and the other to the westward of the Northumberland

129 HAILING? DIRECTIONS. 129 and Cumberland Islands ; tut the distance by the Eastern and Western channels being nearly the same, either may be adopted. The Inner channel runs between the islands and the main land, which afford numerous and good guiding marks; whereas the Eastern or outer channel, though wide, passes at a greater distance from the islands on the western side, and is chiefly bounded to the eastward by dangerous and imperfectly 'known reefs, instead of islands and the main land. The EASTERN or OUTER CHANNEL is bounded to the eastward by Bell Cay, the inner limits of the barrier thence to the sand -banks westward of the islets K 41. and K 4., a dry sand-bank seen by Captain Flinders nearly N. by E. 12 miles from L 2., and the irregular edge of the reefs to the north-eastward of the northernmost Cumberland Island. It is bounded to the westward by 1st Northumberland Isle, the Percy Isles, K 1., K., K 2., and L 2., and the chain of islets, rocks, and reefs fronting the northern cluster of the Cumberland Islands. A dangerous shoal, not laid down in the charts, is said to exist three miles E.S.E. of the S.F. extreme of the N.E. Percy Island ; but it his out of the track of vessels running through the Outer or Eastern passage. The greatest breadth of the Eastern channel is about 30 miles, between Bell Cay and Ist Northumberland Isle, and its least breadth is 5 miles, between the sand-bank to the westward of K 412. and K. Isles. The soundings are regular, varying from 25 to 37 fathoms. The bottom is in some places mud, and in others sand. The WESTERN or INNER CHANNEL, as far northward as Whitsunday Passag, is bounded on the eastern side by the Percy Isles, Bailey Islet, L 1., in., and Sir James Smith Group; and on the western side by H. Isles, the Beverly Group, the main land from Fresh-water Point to Point Slade, the shoals off Shoal Point, Cape Hilsborough, and the Repulse Isles. The least breadth of this channel is about 5 miles, between the Beverly group and a line from No. 2 Percy Isle to Bailey Islet ; and its greatest breadth is 23 miles, from Fresh-water Point to the same line. The soundings are generally regular, the least depth being 4 fathoms, and the greatest 19 fathoms ; the bottom is in most parts sand and mud. The only known dangers in this channel are the rocks to the southward, and north-westward of Prudhoe Island, and the 4- fathoms knoll between Shoal Point and L. Island. Tides.-Between Capes Hilaborough and Conway the ebb stream sets to the N.E., and the flood to the S.W., but they are E.

130 130 PORTS AND HARBORS: very irregular in the direction of the stream ; the greatest strength is about 1y' knots. WBITSUNDAY PASSAGE.-The northern termination of the Inner channel just described is bounded to the eastward by Shaw, Passage, Whitsunday, and Hook Islands, and the islets between Hook Isle and the northernmost of the Cumberland Islands ; and is bounded to the westward by the shoal extending from Cape Conway to Round Head, Molle Isles, and the islets which lie scattered to the eastward of Cape Gloucester. Spitfvre Bock.-A dangerous rock, awash at high water, lying on the eastern side of the channel, at a distance of 12 miles from Shaw Island, Shaw Perak bearing N. 74 E., Crape Conway S ' W., magnetic. The least breadth of Whitsunday Passage is two miles, between Passage Isle and Pine Head, to the northward of which it increases to 4 and 7 miles The soundings, on approaching from the southward, increase suddenly at about 3 miles to the southward of Cape Conway from an 8 and 9 fathoms flat of fine sand and mud, to 20 and 25 fathoms, and even deep water, on a very coarse bottom. Tides.-It is high water in Whitsunday Passage, full and change, at 11h. The shores on either side of the passage being bold, may be approached without any other apprehension than may arise from the strength of the streams, which run 3 knots during springs, and the velocity is sometimes greater. They do not appear to set so strong on the eastern side, between Shaw and Passage Isles ; and the contrary in the vicinity of Port Molle. The ebb and flood streams are apparently regular, setting 6 hours each way, the ebb to the northward, and the flood to the southward. At Port ;Mlle the greatest rise of tide observed dick not exceed 10 feet, although Captain King noticed a rise of 18 feet at the Repulse Isles, and 24 feet at L. Isle. The rise and fall of the tides between Broad Sound and Port Denison appear to be considerably affected by gales of wind outside the barrier, the water apparently being banked up inside the reefs during strong south-easterly winds. PORT CURTIS. IN making Port Curtis, either from the northward or southward, Mount Larcom may, as a general rule, be first steered for, until the adjacent hills are clearly made out. A vessel from the southward, entering by the South Channel, should, after passing by the rocky islets lying off Bustard Head,

131 BAILING DIRECTIONS. 131 bring Mount Larcom in line with Gatcombe Head, and steer for them so, until Peaked Hill (a remarkable mountain, 2000 feet in height, fifteen miles to the south-westward of Rodd Bay) is in line with the highest of the Seal Rocks, S.S W. z W. ; then steer S.W. s S. for two and three-quarter miles (making due all owance for the strength of the stream), or until Mount Lareom is about a quarter of a point open to the northward of Round Hill, the latter bearing W. by N., which would place a vessel about half a mile to the N.N.W. of the highest of the Seal Rocks ; a W. by N. s N. course (allowing for the stream, and keeping South-trees Point well open to the southward of Gatcombe Head) will then lead directly into the harbor, passing at about three-quarters of a mile to the southward of Gatcombe Head. A secure anchorage may be chosen, if necessary, off Observation Point--the nearer the shore, with safety, the better, as the tide stream runs from one and a-half to two knots, at a third of a mile off. Vessels generally select this as a fairway anchorage, when waiting to proceed to sea; and those of the largest size may safely go up, and anchor in six fathoms in the stream between Barney and Auckland Points. After passing Gatcombe Read within three-quarters of a mile, steer up the harbor until Mount Larcom opens out to the northward of South-trees Point ; leave two black beacons placed on the north-east edge of the banks stretching to the south-east of South-trees point on the port hand, and pass that point at about a cable's length leaving two red buoys, one on the eastern and the other on the south- easte rn extreme of the Middle Bank on the starboard hand. Keep Auckland Point open of Barney Point, and pass these points at about a cable's distance also, leaving a third red buoy nearly abreast Barney Point, and which points out the position of a small rocky patch having not more than five feet of water on it at low water, on the starboard hand. Vessels bound up the creek will pass, on the port hand, a small black beacon to the westward of Auckland Point, and two red beacons on the starboard hand, the first of which is placed on the end of the spit running out from the mangroves on the west side of the creek. In working up the harbor, be careful not to shut out Auckland Point with South-trees Point, and not to approach the shore between Gatcombe Head and the next rocky point to the N.W. within one-third of a mile, as a dangerous reef of coral runs out to nearly that distance from of a low rocky double point. The rocky patch to be avoided off Barney Point lies with Barney Point nearl in a line with Round or One-tree Hill; and with the north extreme of the x#

132 132 PORTS AND HARBORS: high land to the northward of Mount Larcom, just shutting in with the land on the north side of the harbor. There is room to pass on either side of this patch, which is of very small extent. The north extreme of the high land to the northward of Mount Larcom, kept open of the land on the north side of the harbor, leads clear of the south-west edge of that portion of the Middle Bank which lies to the westward of the rocky patch. In entering the South Channel from the northward, a vessel should make for Hummock Hill, keeping it on a south bearing, and taking care not to bring it to the eastward of S. z E., in order that the eastern edge of East Banks may be cleared. When the Seal Rocks are distinctly made out, approach them on their northern side (which is steep-to) until Mount Larcom is about a quarter of a point open to the northward of Round Hill, W. by N. ; then proceed up the harbor as above directed. easels fr om the northward entering Port Curtis by the Nor Channel, should, when the land is clearly recognised, bring the extreme of Gatcombe Head to bear S.W. by W., when it will be in line with Settlement Point, and should be kept so until the eastern coast of Facing Island is shut in by the east point of the island : a vessel will then be clear of the northwest end of the East Banks, and of the shoal water off Facing Point, and may round the south-east end of Facing Island. Keep about a quarter of a mile outside Settlement Point and the detached rock off Gateombe Head, taking care to steer clear of the 321-fathom knoll off the bead. A berth may then be taken up as before directed. Vessels proceeding along the coast from the northward towards Port Curtis should not approach the shores of Facing Island within three miles, rocks (which are not laid down in the charts) runn in g out from the land nearly to that distance. TIDES.-Is is high water in Port Curtis, full and change, at 9h. 30m. ; the rise being from ten to twelve feet. The tides here are much affected by the prevailing winds, and the stream at times sets very strong in the channels. KEPPEL BAY. On rounding Cape Capricorn, steer about W. by N. (making due allowance for the set of the tide) for the Second Lump, a bold rocky island ; or when a peaked bill on the mainland (called the Cock's Comb) is visible, keep it open to the north-

133 SAILING DIRECTIONS. 133 ward of the Second Lump, until Broad Mount opens out to the northward of the outer geppel rock. These marks lead clear of the black buoy on the northern edge of Cottier 's Bank, on which there is about 72 feet of water at low-water springs. When abreast the outer Keppel rock, which may be passed within half a mil e, steer for the centre of Broad Mount - which will bear about W S.W.-until South Hill is aell opened out to the westward of Sea Hill. South Hill will then bear about south by compass. Strangers should always pass outside the black buoy off the "Timandra" bank, which shoal extends off the shore between Sea H ill and the Keppel rocks ; on it there are several patches of dangerous rocks, which only partly show at very low tides ; and at the edge of the bank the water shoals very suddenly. Here the " Timandra "- fr om which the bank takes its name-was lost. After passing the black buoy off the "Timandra" bank, a vessel may haul up to the southward, and if intending to anchor in Keppel Bay, will find good anchorage within half-a-mile of the shore, by bringing Sea Hill to bear N E. There is also good safe anchorage along the western shore of Curtis Island, in from three to five fathoms, as far southward as Division Point. Care must be taken to avoid a sand bank running off from Division Point, the north extreme of which lies in a line drawn from Sea Hill Point towards South H ill, one and a-half mile distant from the former point. Its position is marked by a black buoy. Vessels intending to proceed up the Fitzroy River, should, when abreast of Sea Hill Point, and at a distance from it of half a--mile, steer S.W. 2 S., and pass a red buoy on the eastern edge of the west banks on the starboard hand, and the black buoy off the northern extreme of the spit running out off Division Point on the port hand. When South Hill is beginning to open to the N.E. of the high land about Mount Larcom, and the Second Lump to shut in with the South Keppel Island, the Elbow Buoy, which is red and to the left on the starboard hand, will be close to ; haul up to the westward round this buoy, and steer for the centre of three small peaks, whic}}i gan be seen in clear weather about half a point to the south of the large mangrove island ; pass at about a cable 's le fr om this island, leaving a black beacon on the spit off Raglan Creek on the port hand, and after leaving the large mangrove island, keep the port shore on board within half a cable's length, leaving a red buoy which is placed on the N.W. extreme of the spit running off the sma ll mangrove island on the starboard hand, and entering the Fitz ro y River in mid-channel. The starboard shore should be kept on board throughout the first reach, beyond which the channel is marked out by white beacons on the shore, and black

134 134 PORTS AND HARBORS: and red buoys and beacons, which are to be left on the port and starboard hands respectively. From the shifting nature of the shoals in the Fitzroy River, masters of vessels who are not constantly visiting the port, will save much time by taking a pilot. The Pilot station is situated on the " Grassy Hills," a point of land between Cape Koppel and Sea Hill, and vessels are boarded by the pilots off the Koppel Rocks. TIDES.-The rise and fall are from 7 to 15 feet, and the stream runs from two to three knots in Koppel Bay. BROAD SOUND. There are three entrances into Broad Sound ; the first between West Hill and the Flat Islands; the second, through Thirsty Sound ; and the third and best, between the Flat and North Point Islands. Vessels coming from the northward and using the western channel should be careful to avoid a sandy shoal lying E. by S. four miles from West Hill, and on which there is as tittle as nine feet water. 3rd and 4th Islands are sufficiently steep-to on their weste rn sides to admit of the channel being navigated by small craft without much difficulty ; and there is anchorage, during easterly and south-easterly winds, close under the north-west side of 4th Island. At the south-east opening of this channel it becomes very contracted, though there is a narrow channel through with about 10 feet at low water. The easternmost channel through Thirsty Sound shortens the distance to Broad Sound considerably to vessels coming from the southward ; but the tides are very strong in this channel, and the bottom very foul through a great portion of its length, causing a heavy tide ripple ; there does not appear, however, to be less than two thorns water in the channel. The centre channel, which is the best, lies between Flat and North Point Islands. After passing Cape Townshend, a-good look-out should be kept for the numerous rocks and shoals which lie off' the entrance to Broad Sound. When midway between North Point Island and the 2nd Flat Island, a vessel should steer S. by W. sixteen miles-making due allowance for the tides which run nearly three knots-when she would be near the Fairway Buoy of the entrance to the St. Lawrence Creek. In fine weather vessels may-while waiting for tide or a pilot- anchor close to the north- east end of the Fairway Buoy, in four and

135 SAILING DIRECTIONS. 135 a-half fathoms at low water, the re d cliffs bearing about W. by S. two miles distant. A ll vessels visiting Broad Sound, should be provided with good ground tackle, as the tides run with great velocity, and *ben setting against the wind, cause a very heavy short sea. Vessels requiring the service of a pilot, should fire a gun when off the entrance to the creek. All red buoys are to be left on the starboard hand on entering, and all black buoys on the port hand. The sand banks, which are to to be seen at the entrance of the St. Lawrence, from the anchorage off the Fairway Buoy, should be nearly covered, before attempting to get under weigh for the purpose of going up to the township. To go up the creek, pass the Fairway Buoy, which is black, on the port hand; steer to the southward for about a mile, being guided by the buoys on either hand, then haul up W. by S. and pass within 10 or 15 yards of the red buoy off the south end of Rocky Island, then haul rather more to the southward, passing a black buoy on the port hand, and steer direct for a white beacon on Mangrove Island. When within a cable's length of the island, steer for the beacon on Small Island, passing it within ten yards ; then cross over to the beacon on the opposite shore ; keep that shore on board until abreast the next beacon, when again cross over to the north side ; keep the north shore on board until abreast the next beacon, when again cross over to a beacon on the south side ; keep along the south shore until abreas the next beacon, when again cross to the north shore and pass two beacons ; cross once more to the south shore, and keep that shore on board until nearly as far as the rocks below the township. The best place for mooring abreast the township, is just above and inside the rocks. It is necessary that all vessels visiting the St. Lawrence, should be provided with good warps for moorings. Should vessels, after entering the river, not be able to reach the township, care should be taken to ground fore and aft in the channel so as to insure lying on an even keel, and end on to the flowing tide. The sand banks above Rocky Island are shifting sands, and are liable to alter their positions after floods, or even after spring tides. There is anchorage from northerly winds under Turtle Island, off the entrance to the river Styx, in from four to six fathoms at low water. Vessels should approach from the N.W., between the banks off the mainland and Turtle Island. Bearings at anchorage -Upper Head, E.S.E. ; West Head of Styx, S.S.W.

136 136 PORTS AND HARBORS: It is high water in Broad Sound at full and change at 11h. 15m. Rise and fall of tide, from 20 to 36 feet. t PIONEER RIVER. VESSELS on nearing the Pioneer River can always recognise its position by its proximity to two islands, lying north-west and south-east, one mile apart ; that to the south-east being roundtopped and moderately high, while that to the north-west, although about the same height, is flat-topped. The entrance to the Pioneer is about one and a-half mile south-west of the flat-topped island. A bar extends across the mouth of the river, which nearly dries at low water springs, and from thence the depth of the channel, which has an meragg width of one cable, varies from one foot to seven feet at low water, until within abort three-quarters of a mile of the settlement, when it again almost dries across, and from thence the depth gradually increases until abreast the settlement, which j 1 about four miles from the bar, and where there is about six feet at low water in the centre of the channel. There is a rise and fail on the bar from ten and a-half feet to sixteen feet, and at the settlement, of from nine feet to thirteen feet, so that most of the vessels trading on the coast can entea the port without difficulty. The directions for entering are as follows :- To cross the bar, keep a double hummock, which is about eight miles inland, just to the southward of some low sand hills on the beach, pass on either side close to the Fairway Buoy, which is laid in three fathoms at low water, and is chequered black and white. A vessel may haul up when the island to the south-east of Slade Point is well shut in with the trees on the extreme east point, and when two red buoys have been passed on the starboard hand ; the first of which is placed on the bar, and the second off the spit round w Inch a vessel must haul up to the northward. When approaching the bar two white beacons will be seen on the beach, which give the best line for crossing the bar. On standing in shore care should be taken not to shut in L Island with East point. After hauling up to the northward, two more red buoys will be passed on the starboard hand within a ship's length, when steer for the steep shore on the west side of East point. As that point is neared the edge of the banks become more clearly defined ; they are steep-to and may be approached within a reasonable distance. Thence the channel runs along the starboard shore, until just before reaching

137 SAILING DIRECTIONS. 137 a sandy cliffy point, when the township will be opened out to the westward, for which a vessel may then haul up and steer until nearly abreast the first point on the port hand, when it will be necessary to keep a good look out for the buoys which are placed in this portion of the channel, as the banks are here ]fable to shift. On entering, the red buoys are to be left on,4ie starboard and the black buoys on the port hand. A berth may be taken up-as convenient--abreast the township, in from five to seven feet at low water. Vessels intending to enter the Pioneer River should not run down on the lee shore when it is blowing hard from the east or mouth-east, but should anchor under some of the islands off the coast until the weather moderates. In moderate south-easterly *eather a vessel would find sufficient shelter under the lee of the flat-topped island, being careful to avoid a sandspit running off the south extreme of that island, toward the east point at the entrance of the river. There is a good passage, about half- a-mile 'dey between this spit and the shoal water off the main land. Wien in mid-channel the island to the south-east of Slade Point is on with the peak of At Island. The entrance of the river is sheltered by the islands during north-easterly winds. Vessels should carefully avoid the dangerous reef to the north-ward of the two islands off the Pioneer, and lying nearly midway between those islands and the island to the south-east,ef Slade Point. There is, however, a clear passage between this reef and the main land, and also between Slade Point and the small island lying off the shore. There is also a passage between the round and flat-topped islands. The tides in the Pioneer River run from three to upwards of four knots. High water, full and change, 11$ hours. Vessels, if drawing more than six feet, may lay aground at low water, abreast the settlement, in safety, on soft, sandy bottom ; the river at that time of tide forming a perfectly sheltered basin there. On entering the river while any tide is running, the banks are generally visible, and there is little difficulty in navigating the river if proper attention is paid, and the lead kept going. From the narrowness of the channel, the port is not well suited for vessels of any great length. N.B.-Heavy fr eshes occasionally alter the formation of the sand-banks in the Pioneer River. Any changes, however, will be pointed out by the buoys and beacons which are now placed for the assistance of vessels navigating the river. -Plans of the river -fr om a survey made in November, can be obtained at the Port Office.

138 138 PORTS AND HARBORS: PORT DENISON. FROM GLOUCESTER ISLAND TO PORT DENISON. VASE Ls intending to enter Port Denison by the north entrance should, after rounding the north end of Gloucester Island within a mile, steer so as to pass about half a mile to the S. E. of Middle Island ; thence-making due allowance for tidesteering S.W. by W. IT W. for North Head, taking care to avoid a reef which runs out a mile and a-quarter to the S.W. of Middle Island. The North Head is a small rocky islet of moderate height, at the back of which (situated on the lower point of the Flagstaff Hill) will be seen, from a considerable distance, the houses at the Pilot Station. In entering the port by this channel, avoid the reef off the South Head (Stone Island), on which there are two black nun buoys laid in two fathoms low water, entering somewhat closer to North Head, and when abreast of it, steer for Middle Hill (a small cone on the main land midway between Mount Gordon and Mount Bramston), which course will take you in with not less than sixteen feet low water ; taking card to avoid a spit extending off Point Dalrymple, on which there are two red nun buoys laying in ten feet low water.. After rounding the second red buoy, keep away for the township. It is to be observed, by these directions, that on entering the port the black buoys are to be kept on the port hand, and the red on the starboard. Vessels entering the bay from the northward and westward should be careful not to approach within a mile to the eastward of Edgecombe Point. Vessels rounding Gloucester Island at night time, with dark boisterous weather, should (with the wind from the southward or eastward) keep within a quarter of a mile of the island, as it is steep close to, and by making a tack, they will be able to select by the lead and smoothness of the water a convenient anchorage, in from seven to four fathoms, under Gloucester Island. There is also excellent anchorage in from three to five fathoms on the east side of the head of Edgecombe Bay The soundings are very regular in all parts of the bay, and shoal very regularly, giving timely warning of being near the land. Vessels having worked into the bay during the night, it is advisable that they should enter the port by the south channel,

139 SAILING DIRECTIONS. 139 this being the best entrance to Port Denison, having the greatest width, and also the greatest depth of water. To enter by the South channel, vessels should, after rounding 4loucester Island, steer S.W. 2 S. (making due allowance for tide), until the peak of Mount Mackenzie (a long saddle-backed hill) is opened out to the southward of Middle Hill. These marks being kept open will lead in through the south entrance, clear of the reef off the south end of Stone Island. Two red buoys are placed, one on the S.E., and the other on the S.W. extreme of this reef. When North Head is opened out clear to the westward of Stone Island, a vessel may haul up for the township, and take up her anchorage according to her draught of water. In hazy weather, should Mount Mackenzie not be visible, vessels should be careful not to approach within three-quarters of a-mile of the south end of Stone Island. The reef, however, can generally be distinguished, in the day time, by the discoloration of the water. A beacon is placed on the end of the sand spit running off the S.E. side of the island. When the sea is too heavy for a pilot to get off, the sailing directions for the north passage should be attended to. A pilot will then be obtained in the fairway at the north entrance. It should be borne in mind that, at springs, there are two feet less water in Port Denison than is shown by the soundings on the chart. During northerly winds, it may often be a considerable saving of time, to vessels of light draught bound to Port Denison, to pass through Gloucester Passage, instead of rounding the north end of Gloucester Island. The following directions will enable vessels to use this passage without difficulty:-after rounding Saddle-back Island (a high island lying off Cape Gloucester), steer for the south-easternmost point of Gloucester Island; keep the Gloucester Island shore on board at a cable's distance, until abreast a sandy point, when keep away, with Passage Islet (a small rocky island that will be seen in the channel) a point on the port bow. Pass this islet at about a Cable's distance on the port hand, which will take a vessel over the bar in six feet at low-water springs. Hence shape a course for Port Denison. Unless the wind leads through the channel, it would be necessary for a sailing vessel to have a fair tide, as the tides set through at the rate of about two knots at springsthe ebb setting into Edgecombe Bay, and the flood in the contrary direction. High water full and change about 9h. 30m. tide, from six to ten feet. Rise and fall of

140 140 PORTS AND HARBORS: PORT ALBANY AND EVANS BAY. THa narrow strait which separates Albany Island from the main land is so straight in its general direction that it may be seen through from end to end. Its average width is three and a-half cables, and the depth of water from six to thirteen fathoms. It is clear of dangers, with the exception of the rock awash, on the ledge projecting a quarter of a mile to the south-westward of Frederick Point, and from which shoal water extends southeastward to the next point. Water.-On the south-west side of Albany Pass, and nearly opposite Port Albany, is a small sandy bay, with some low swampy ground behind the beach, where a never-failing supply of fresh water can easily be procured by digging ponds two or three feet deep, a few yards above high water mark. Water can also be obtained in small quantities on Albany Island. Directions.-A vessel from the southward proceeding to Port Albany, having cleared the shoal patches lying one and three quarters of a mile to the westward of Z. Reef, should bring the peak of York Isle-which is easily seen through Albany Passon with the outer extreme of Osnaburg Point; this mark will clear the shoals extending to the south-eastward from Fly and Ulrica Points, and lead the vessel in mid-channel up to Port Albany. In coming from the northward, and rounding Eborac Isle at a distance of about a quarter of a mile, a vessel will have Albany Pass plainly open, and may steer-making due allowance for the tidal stream -S.E. ITE. for it, passing at a-third of a mile outside Sextant Rock. When the centre of Ida Isle bears south, haul in for it until Albany Pass is again quite open, and by keeping it so the the rocky spit projecting from Frederick Point and the edge of the shoal from Ida Isle to'osnaburg Point will be avoided. If the west extreme of Albany Island touches Fly Point, the vessel will be too far to the north-eastward ; and if the west extreme of the island approaches too near Osnaburg Point, she will be too far to the south-westward. Albany Pass being narrow, with high land on either side, a large sailing vessel should not attempt it, except under very favorable circumstances, as the strong tidal streams would, with baffling winds, render her unmanageable ; but, with a commanding breeze blowing through, a vessel may run against the stream, anchor in mid-channel abreast of Port Albany, and haul in and moor. A steamer or small sailing vessel would find but little difficulty in entering, and might anchor and moor as just directed for a sailing vessel. Tides.- The streams are very rapid in Albany Pass, and c* ise a confused sea when running in an opposite direction to the wind.

141 SAILING. DIRECTIONS. 141 EVANS BAY extends from three- quarters of a mile to one mile and three-quarters to the south-eastward from the extremity of Cape York, between Evans, and Ida Points. The former is a d6uble rocky sloping down from the foot of Mount Bremer ; the latter, which forms the south-east point of the Bay, is also rocky, with a high narrow island of the same name, nearly half- a-mile long, east and west, immediately to the eastward of it. A sandy beach forms the shore between these extremes of the bay, the greater. portion being backed by scrub and stunted trees. As shoal water extends from the beach to a line from Evans Point to Ida Island, there is not sufficient depth within for any other than small vessels; but the best anchorage for large vessels in the south-east monsoon is in six and a-half fathoms, sand and mud, with Ida Point bearing S. 2 W., and Sextant Rock-which lies half-a-mile to the eastward of Evans Point-in line with the east end of Eborac Island. In the north-west monsoon there is better shelter a little more to the W.N.W., at a quarter of a mile from Sextant Rock. Water may be procured in wells dug at the back of the beach in Evans Bay, some at a third of a mile inside Ida Point, and others three-quarters of a mile further to the north-westward. Even when blowing hard, there is seldom so much surf on the beach as to prevent boats bringing off water ; the only inconvenience is the strength of the tidal streams, which set N.W. and S.E., the greatest strength being two knots. Sextant Rock, which is flat and only three or four feet above high-water mark, is situated on the inner edge of a bank two miles long, S.E. and N.W., fronting Evans Bay. Vessels not drawing more than ten feet may cross any part of this.bank ; but large vessels should not attempt it on the north-west side of Sextant Rock, nor to the south-eastward of it, without great caution, on account of some three and a-half fathoms knolls ; those most in the way of vessels passing outside, or entering Evans Bay from the northward, lying half-a-mile to the north. eastward of Sextant Rock. This rock is situated in about lat ' S. and long ' E. Directions.-A vessel from the southward should pass at halfa-mile outside Albany Rock and Tree Islet, and steer about W. by N. 2 N., until the east point of Ida Isle bears S.W. by S.; then haul in for the bay, and anchor where before directed. In coming from the northward, pass at three-quarters of a mile outside Sextant Rock, and then make for the anchorage, taking care-if a large vessel-to avoid the three and a-half fathoms knolls lying half-a-mile to the north-eastward, and E. by Sk about a third of a mile from Sextant Rock, which will be avoided as long as Albany Pass is not seen quite open.

142 142 PORTS AND HARBORS: Tides -It is high-water in Evans Bay, full and change, at 11h. 15m.; springs rise ten feet and neaps four feet. The coast from Ida Isle to Fly Point consists of a succession of shallow bays and rocky points ; but none of the bays are of sufficient depth for a vessel to enter. Osnaburg Point is a steep cliffy bluff, of coarse sandstone, S. ; W., nearly two-thirds of a mile from Frederick Point, the north-west extreme of Albany Island. Between Ida Isle and Osnaburg Point is a shallow bay, divided into two bights by Bishop Point, which is also a high bluff headland. In the western bight Mew rivulet, a stream of good fresh water, runs into the sea close to the southward of a low rocky point ; but this-the only fresh water stream in the neighborhood-is lost to any useful purpose, as the bay is so completely occupied by a mud flat that even boats could not approach the mouth of the rivulet to embark the water. The edge of the flat, which extends in nearly a direct line from Ida Isle to Osnaburg Point, is steep-to, with from six to eight fathoms close outside. Between the edge of this bank and the shoals extending to the north-westward of Albany Island large vessels may find a spacious roadstead, which would also be a secure anchorage during the south-east monsoon, were it not for the strong tidal streams which run through Albany Pass.

PzRsoxs desi ro us of selecting lands in Agricultural Reserves should make application to the Land Agent for the district in which the reserve is situate, and who will supply them with the printed forms of application. The area selected by one person cannot exceed 320 acres, and the allotments must adjoin each other.

159 U{ AG 1 ULTUR.&L RB8ERVES. i59 The lands in Agricultural Reserves are sur'deyed into allotments of from eighteen to eighty acres, varying according to the features of the country, and applications can only be received for the allotments as marked out, and not for portions or subdivisions of them. The conditions of purchase are, that the purchase-money, or a land order for the amount, at the rate of E1 per acre, shall be paid to the Land Agent at the time of selection, and the selector must fence in the boundaries with a two-rail fence, and cultivate one-sixth of the land within one year, and must also reside on the land for six months of that period; and if he fail in these conditions, the land will be forfeited, and a land order for threefourths of the purchase money given back to the selector. The selector of an allotment by purchase will be entitled to lease, for five years, such of the adjoining allotments as are vacant, at the rate of sixpence per acre, paid in advance on the 31st of January, in each year. i The conditions of these leases are, that the holder must fence in the land within eighteen months from the date of application, and the lessee may at any time dung the five years' lease purchase the land by paying 1 per acre, either by cash or land orders ; but the purchaser must cultivate one-sixth of the land so purchased within one year from the date of purchase, and within that time cultivate so much of his adjoining allotments as shall be equal to a sixth part of the whole of the land he holds by purchase in the reserve. If the conditions of purchase are not fulfilled the land will be forfeited, and a land order for three-fourths of the amount of purchase, money returned. Should the leased land not be purchased during the currency of the five years' lease, the land and all the improvements thereon will be forfeited. On the completion of the conditions of purchase by a solicitor, a deed of grant in fee simple will be issued to the purchaser, who will thereafter be able to sell and transfer as he may see fit; but until a deed of grant is issued to him he cannot sell or mortgage it. Should a person sell the whole of the land purchased by him, he cannot retain his leased allotments, but the leases can be transferred to the person to whom the land granted in fee simple has been sold. Where only a part of the purchased holding is transferred, leases to the extent of three times the remainder may be retained. The charge for the deed of grant is 1 for less than 50 acres, and 1 5s. for 50 to 300 acres.

160 160 GOTERNMENT SAVINtIS BANKS. GOVERNMENT SAVINGS BANKS. THE government have noti fied their intention of bringing into operation, on the 1st of January, 1865, an Act passed during the last session of Parliament, giving " additional faci lities for "depositing small savings at interest, with the security of the "Government for the repayment thereof;" and the places at which banks will first be opened are-brisbane, and at the offices of the Police Magistrates in Ipswich, Rockhampton, Maryborougb, Gayndah, Dalby, Toowoomba, Warwick, Bowen, Gladstone, Cardwell, Clermont, Mackay, and Surat. We append a brief abstract of the regulations:- The Governor in Council may from time to time appoint places where Government Savings Banks shall be established, and at what hours they shall be opened for the transaction of business. Deposits may be made from five shillings upwards, and the depositor, on his first transaction with the bank, shall make and sign a declaration to the effect that he is desirous of becoming a depositor. When the latter cannot write, he or she must affix his or her mark in the presence of an attesting witness. When a person makes a deposit, the officer receiving it shall enter the same in a book to be kept by the depositor, and affix to the entry the official dated stamp. The amount of each deposit, and the name, occupation, and residence of the depositor must, upon the day the deposit is made, be forwarded to the Colonial Treasurer, from whose office a receipt according to a printed form is to be forthwith transmitted to the depositor, as conclusive evidence of his claim to the repayment of the deposit, with interest thereon. On the first day of each month, the officer appointed to receive deposits must forward to the Colonial Treasury a detailed statement of his receipts during the preceding month, on a printed form supplied for the purpose. The interest allowed is 3 15s. per cent. per annum, calculated yearly, (or, to simplify it, say three-farthings per per calendar month,) on every pound deposited ; and is computed from " the first day of the calendar month next following the day on which a pound shall have been deposited, up to the first day of the calendar month in which moneys are withdrawn." The interest will be calculated on the 31st December in every year, and will be added to and become part of the principal money. Deposits may be made by trustees on behalf of others, or by persons on account of minors, but, after the age of seven years, repayment may be made to such mmor as if he were of full age.

161 GOVERNMENT SAVINGS BA1aX Deposits mayy be made by married women, and deposits so made, or made by women who shall afterwards marry, will be repaid to any such woman, unless her husband shall give notice in writing of such marriage to the Colonial Treasurer, and shall re quire payment to be made to him. Every depositor shall, ones in each year, on or before the 31st December, forward his deposit book to the Treasury, in order that the entries therein may be compared with the entries in the Treasu re r's books, and the interest due inserted. Covers or envelopes for enclosing the books may be procured fr ee at any Savings Bank, and no charge will be made on the depositor for postage, either in the transmission of his books to the Treasury or the return thereof, or for any necessary application made by him with re gard to his deposits. The first book issued to a depositor will be charged sixpence, and any other, if the first be lost or mutilated, at one shil ling. Any depositor wishing to withdraw the whole or part of any amount deposited by him, must make app lication for the same to the Colonial Treasurer, on a printed form to be procured at any government Savings Bank. Every effort will be made by the gove rn ment to pre vent fr aud, but if any person should manage to impersonate a depositor, and obtain any sum of money belonging to him, the government will not be responsible for the loss. Repayments will only be made to the depositor in person, or to the beare r of an order signed by him, attested by a justice of the peace, or, in case of sickness, by a medical attendant; and if the depositor be resident out of the colony, his signature must be veri fied by some constituted authority of the place, and in the form prescribed, which may be obtained on appli cation. P ro visions are made in the concluding clauses of the regulations, for the payment of deposits to proper persons in cases of ill egitimacy or intestacy, for the settlement of disputes, and for the preservation of secrecy with regard to the names of depositors, and the amounts they may deposit, by the officers attached to the several Savings Banks.

FIRST PRINCIPLES OF CULTIVATION. Tam proper growth of our cultivated crops depends upon certain conditions of the air, the soil, and water; and that the labour of the husbandman may be crowned with success, be should thoroughly understand those conditions, and endeavour to secure such of them for his crops as he can command. The degree of light and heat, the state of the atmosphere, and the supply of rain, being beyond his control, his attention may be directed to working the soil in a manner calculated to produce the best results in all weathers, to the cultivation of the crops best adapted to his climate or meeting the most ready sale, the best means by which to keep the land from becoming exhausted by continual cropping, and the possibility of obtaining a supply of water for irrigation in times of drought. All systems of gardening should be acted upon with some discrimination, that is to say, while proper attention be paid to the general directions and rules laid down, allowance must be made for the difference and variety of soils, of situation, and of climate, which require a strict attention to the mode of management peculiarly' adapted to each ; and it is the almost proverbial inattention to those important points which is the chief cause of that want of success which proves often so discouraging to the inexperienced cultivator.

171 PASTORAL AND AGRICULTURAL. 111k To work the soil in a manner calculated to produce the best results in all weathers, the first principles of gardening must be understood and-consistently applied. It is generally known that plants derive the greater part, of their nourishment from the soil ; and that to enable the tender roots to extend in search of food, the earth should be pulverized. It is known, by sad experience, that the crops in flat lands especially, are lost season after season by water in the soil during rainy weather. Crops are frequently lost from shallow tillage during drought, and the land gets worked out from continual cropping without manure. These results are admitted, but we fear the causes are not sufficiently studied, and we are satisfied that due precautions are not adopted to prevent the recurrence of such disasters. Nature is very bountiful, but the husbandman will ordinarily only obtain his reward on conforming to certain conditions. To ensure the best prospect of success, (presupposing the soil to be of average fertility) the grower should "drain" where necessary,* "subsoil" or " trench," " manure," " irrigate," and adopt a " rotation of crops." A. J. H. IRRIGATION. InRrGATrorc as a means of increasing the produce of the soil, is of great antiquity. It is practised to a considerable extent in China, India, Italy, and other countries ; and in England the "water meadows" are a source of great profit. In Queensland there is abundance of grass for the cattle, without resorting to this means of procuring it, but there is scarcely any country where the inducement to irrigate is greater. With the continual risk of drought, and wages at the maximum rate, it behoves the farmer to adopt every means within his reach to protect himself against the former as well as economise the latter. One great obstacle to the general introduction of irrigation is that our rivers are mostly salt, and we are not possessed of any satisfactory information as to how far such water can be advantageously used for growing crops. It is not considered safe to use water containing more than three per cent of salt; and as from experiments made by the late Mr. Eldridge on the Brisbane River water, after dry weather, it was found to contain five per cent. of salt, it appears that at the time when the water would be most urgently required for irrigation it would be unsafe for the farmers on the Brisbane to use the water from that river, unless * To PROVE IF LAND REQUIRES DRAINING : After a long continued and steady rain, dig several holes three feet deep in the lowest parts of your cultivated land ; leave them during the night, and if water is standing In them the next morning, your land requiresdraining.

172 172 PASTORAL AND AGRICULTURAL. mixed with an equal quantity of fresh, and then it should on no account be allowed to touch the foliage of the plants. There are, no doubt, many positions whero a suitable supply of water (which taking its rise at a greater elevation) would be at command for this purpose, or could be made available at a reasonable outlay. Were such circumstances taken advantage of, it- may be safely affirmed that the benefits would be so striking as to induce more costly operations. It cannot be too clearly impressed that in time of drought, or in hot dry weather, a mere sprink ling from the watering pot is often injurious, while a good flow of water running along the alleys among the growing crops for half-an-hour every evening would produce the utmost luxuriance of growth. Mr. Knight, one of the first authorities in all matters connected with gardening, says, in reference to this subject, " The quantity of water which may be given with advantage to plants of almost every kind, during warm and bright weather, is, I believe, very much greater than any gardener who has not seen the result will be inclined to suppose possible, and it is greater than I myself could have believed upon any other evidence than that of actual experience." A. J. H. THE ORCHARD. Taaa.E is probably no country in the world capable of producing in perfection a greater variety of fruits than Queensland. Enjoying a climate ranging from that of Europe on the Downs, to the tropical temperature of Mackay, she may embrace in her productions the English gooseberry, strawberry, apple, and pear; and the pine apple, guava, and mango. Next to the growth of sugar, cotton, tobacco, and coffee, this colony is likely to excel in the abundance of its fruits ; possessing such a variety of temperature and a fertile soil, it awaits only the skill and enterprise of man to transform its stately forests into vineyards, orchards, and cornfields. Unlike the older colonies, here is a large local demand almost wholly supplied by importations, and.there can, therefore, be no doubt as to finding a market for the produce. The orchard should be a feature in every farm ; every little homestead in the suburbs should have a few fruit trees of the best sorts, if only for the use of the household. Quite independent of the wholesomeness of good fruit in a warm climate, (where as a rule too little vegetable food is consumed) it is wise to take some little trouble to surround the "home" with such comforts and attractions as a few fruit trees and a neatly kept flower border. A. J. H.

On the arrival of the English mail at any port in the adjoining colonies, a Red Ensign will when practicable be hoisted at the mast head and kept flying for two hours. When only one vessel arrives, the signal will be kept flying one hour; when more than one, thirty minutes will be allowed for each signal. The arrival of steamers belonging to the Australian Steam Navigation Company, or to the Queensland Steam Navigation Company, will be notified by their respective flags, hoisted instead of the Descriptive Flag for steamers. The flag of the A. S. N. Company is divided diagonally into four parts, each side quarter being blue, and top and bottom red. The flag of the Q..8. N. Company is a white Maltese cross on a red ground. NOTE.-The numbers of the flags may be easily recognised from their being composed of as many stripes or stars, as they are intended to represent. When any number higher than 9 is to be represented, one flag is hoisted over the other ; 4 over 2, as in the accompanying cut, which represents 42, the number for Clarence River. The Substitute Flag is used when two of the same figu re s re quire to be represented ; for example, No. 5 hoisted over the Substitute would rep re sent the number for tort Albany.

This part of the country is being fast taken up by settlers on the New South Wales border. Residents on the Lower Warrego and Parroo receive their supplies from Forte Bourke, 70 miles south of the Queensland border, on the River Darling, to which point they are conveyed by steamers from Echuca (Victoria), and'goolwa (South Austra lia). The rate of carriage of wool from Fort Bourke to Melbourne or Adelaide averages 12 per ton, and flour has been quoted at 22 per ton at Fort Bourke while it was selling at 40 at Dalby. The subjoined memoranda relative to the Warrego district were kindly supplied to the Publisher by Mr. John Ne ilson, of the Warrego River:-" The trave ll er, on leaving Fort Bourke, N. S. Wales (which, by the way, is the key to the trade of this district ), arrives upon the Warrego, or, more properly, the Barungha, at a point 40 miles therefrom, at a large sheep station belonging to the Bogan River Company. He then proceeds upwards some 40 miles to a large sheep estab li shment of Mr. John Rutherford. Some few miles to the west of Mr. Rutherford 's station, upon the Irrarah Creek, effluent from the Warrego, Mr. Vincent Dowling has a station. The trave ll er now arrives at the boundary of this colony and N. S. Wales, and the first station therein situate is a station of Mr. Dangar 's (No 1)_ At 20 miles easterly from this station there are two others, severa lly occupied on either bank of Thuralgoonah Creek-on the east side by Mr. Magic, and on the west by Mr. John Rutherford. Another station depasturing cattle has been formed by Mr. Moned, late of the Bree. Twenty miles north -easterly of this point there are two stations, held on a place called Noorooma, on the east side by Mr. Rutherford, and on the west side by Mr. W. Mackenzie. At a point 12 miles west fr om Danger's horse station you arrive at the Cuttaburra Creek, effluent from the Warrego, at a station of the Bogan River Co., Merrimonka. Leaving there and proceeding upwards, you arrive at a cattle station of l1r. J. F. Josephson (of Sydney ), and the neat station you meet with on the Cuttaburra is a station of the Bogan River Company 's and Dangar 's cattle station, situate some 14 mil es from the effluence of the Cuttaburra from the Warrego. Leaving Dangar's horse station on the main Warrego, the trave ller crosses a creek effluent from that river, called the Tuen, at 25 miles' distance. The country on the opposite bank is held by Messrs. Single and Ryan (of Penrith, N. S. Wales) ; fr om thence to Cunnamullah (Mr. Samuel Smith 's), the distance is 40 miles. On the opposite bank a station is held by Mr.

208 2 08 COUNTRY DIRECTORY. George Pearson; and 14 miles above this there is a station held by Messrs: Williams (Teckulman) ; on the opposite bank Mr. Dangar holds a cattle station. Messrs. Williams, also, hold an adjoining station, 22 miles above Teehulman, called Coongoolin, on the east bank-the west bank being held by Mr. John M'Kenzie. Leaving Coongoolin you arrive at Claverton (Mr. H. Weaver's), at 17 miles, the opposite bank to which is held by Mr. Hill, of the Narran River. Leaving Claverton you arrive at a station of Mr. John Neilson, on the west bank, ten miles above which a station is held by Mr. W. G. Conn, called Dillalah, on the east bank. Opposite, the country is held by Mr. John Rutherford. At 25 miles above this point the country is held, on the west bank, by Mr. Richards, a few miles above whose station the Warrego receives the waters of the Burgamathulla and Ward. Upon the latter river there exists some of the finest country in Queensland, held by Messrs. Burn, Mayne, and Ward, Missing and others. The only stations on the Burgamathulla are held by Messrs. Adams and Donkin. Leaving Richards' station, on the west bank of the Warrego upwards, you arrive at a station held by Messrs. Flood, Gordon, and Wiseman. The country above this on the west side is of splendid downs, but, there being a scarcity of water, this land remains unoccupied at present. Below this country, on the west bank, the Warrego receives the waters of the Nive, occupied by Messrs. Dutton and others. On the opposite bank it also receives the waters of the Angellala, upon which are situate a large number of sheep and cattle stations, held by various parties. The country above this point consists alternately of open scrub and downs, exceedingly well grassed, -the Lower Warrego having the greatest extent of plain country, the soil becoming more saline as you approach the Dailing, and more adapted for sheep. To the west of the Warrego, starting from Cunnamullah, there is a station held by Mr. Sharp, Mirrapooroo, distance 15 miles ; thence to Dowling's, on the Parroo, 15 miles; and west of that Point again, a station held by Mr. West. Mr. Dowling has another cattle station 40 miles below his upper station on the Parroo River. "The trade of the Upper Warrego proceeds towards Rockhampton, while the Lower Warrego and westward of that receive their supplies at Fort Bourke, where they are brought by steamers from Echuca (Victoria), and Goolwa (South Australia). The navigation of these rivers by Captain Cadell has done much to open up the interior of Western Queensland, and although the colony loses the commercial trade of this part, still the advantages of internal steam navigation must be admitted."

Calliungal is a little off the direct road, near to the point where the River Dee has to be crossed. The crossing is rather difficult in rainy seasons, and forms the only obstacle of any magnitude between this and Taroom. Westwood is a small township, where there are two inns and several other buildings, but it is said to be very badly watered, and the waterholes dangerous for stock. The postal line from Rockhampton to the Comet branches off here. At Lake Victoria there is a cattle station, forming part of the Calliungal run, on the River Don, owned by Messrs. Wood and Robison. Goganjo is a sheep station, 10 miles from Westwood ; and Mr. Gillespie has a station near the crossing place over the Dawson River, and near its junction with Kianga Creek.

These downs extend for many miles, and furnish beautiful undulating prairie country for stock, qu}te equal to the Darling Downs, but very barely watered. The country on th.

The Barcoo country is said to be superior even to this. On the Thompson River, where the Landsborough River Company have their stations, we are informed that the plains extend for 300 miles, and the country is timbered so slightly that it is difficult even to get rafters for a hut, and a lever for a wool-press will, in some cases, have to be carried for 100 miles.

The route from Toowoomba to the Peak Downs has been thus laid down :-" After leaving Toowoomba, travelling stock can depasture on either side of the road on good feed as far as Warroo. After leaving this place, and proceeding on the Great Northern Road, the route is through Campbell's Camp, Chinchilla, and Middle Creek, at which place there is a small bush inn. This place is in Gogg's Forest, and the traveller, after leaving this place, could not, at the time of my travelling through the forest, get any water till he got to Juandah. At this place there is a little feed and good water. After leaving Juandah, and passing through Taroom, at which place the Dawson River is crossed, he proceeds from Taroom through Palm Tree Creek as far as Gwambegwyne. Here there are two roads ; the direct is the road to Rockhampton, and the left-hand road is the road to Peak Downs. After leaving this place, and proceeding N.W. 22 miles, you come to Mr. Hobbler' s station. Eight miles from here the traveller comes to Bigge's Range, which is rather steep in ascending. From this point the traveller will find good feed all the road out to the Peak Downs. The next station from Hobbler's is Dutton's, Bauhinia Downs. Here, as at Gwambegwyne, there is a road to Rockhampton, which bears N.E.; the road to the Peak Downs bears north from the cross roads for about three miles, and from thence it bears west, and over Expedition Range. The first place after crossing the range the traveller comes to is Cameron's, Planet Creek. Proceeding from thence, the first place of any note is Q

226 226 COUNTRY DIRECTORY. Albinia Downs. At this place there are two roads ; the left is the road to tjie Nive and Barcoo waters, and the right is the road to the Peak Downs. Mr. Thompson's is the `next station, which is 25 miles from Albinia Downs, and from there to Cullinla-ringo (Mr. Wills') is 45 miles. Here the traveller can save 30 miles, or rather better, by passing through and bearing north, and crossing the Nogoa River to the west of the Great Scrub. The distance from here to Scott and Roper's Peak is 73 miles, and the distance from Toowoomba to Scott and Roper's Peak is 541 miles." ROCKHAMPTON to CLERMONT (PEAR DOWNS DIGGINGS). Since the publication of the last edition of this Almanac, the mail from Rockhampton to the Gold Fields has been altered to a weekly one. The usual route for travellers is as follows:- Rockhampton to Yaamba miles Thence to Bonnie Doon Creek Inn... 9 Woodville (Evenett's) Princhester Marlborough Siebel's Inn Apis Creek 18 Mackenzie River (Joss) Columbia Inn The Lagoons Rocky Water Hole Caldwell's Geera Lagoon Vicary's (Jones' Inn) Crinam (township).. 22 Gordon Downs.. 12 Capella (Kennelly's Inn)... 13,; RetroCreek (Skardon'sInn) 15 Clermont Copper Mine 5 Total Another and shorter route from Rockhampton to Clermont has been laid down as follows : Rockhampton to Westwood, 304 miles; thence to Dawson River, 314 miles; thence to Springton Creek (Gaden's), 26 miles ; thence to Duckworth Creek; 16

227 COUNTRY DIRECTORY. 227 miles ; thence to Mackenzie River, 30 miles ; thence to Lily Vale (Crinam Creek), 33 miles; thence to Clermont, 60 miles; total, 227 miles. This will, for some distance, be the road to Springsu re. Should a practicable gap be found in Expedition Range, the road will diverge either at the intended township of Springton, or Duckworth ; till then, it will be from the Mackenzie River, running up the Comet and Nogoa. There willbe a punt at the new crossing place on the Dawson River, ten or twelve miles below the crossing place at Knebworth. The crossing at the Mackenzie River is gravelly and good. Twelve months since, the only accommodation to be obtained on the road between Rockhampton and Peak Downs was that afforded by the stations, but owing to the increased traffic created by the gold fields, public houses have been established within easy stages. The diggings have also progressed considerably, there being now at the township of Clermont (formerly known as Winter and Veale's), three public houses and several boarding houses, where excellent accommodation can be procured at reasonable rates. Clermont is now, in fact, one of the most promising townships in the interior, having a bank, hospital, court-house, newspaper office, several shops and workshops connected with the principal trades, and a number of stores. Four and a-half miles from Clermont, on the old diggings, and adjoining the Peak Downs copper mines, there is a township named Woodville, where there are two public houses and several stores. This place is situated in the centre of the old diggings, and about four miles from Macdonald's. At present the all uvial miners at Macdonald 's are not numerous, nor are there many engaged in quartz-reefing. The average return per man, however, has been good, and great confidence is entertained of valuable yields from the quartz reef, as soon as the requisite crushing machinery is on the ground. On what was known some months since as " the rush," at Expedition Creek, there are now but comparatively few English miners at work, but a large number of Chinese. This partial desertion is owing to the discovery of new ground in other localities : of these "Hurley's rush," situated about 22 miles north-west of Clermont, is the most important. It was first opened up in March, 1864, and has ever since afforded remunerative employment to large numbers. Here the nucleus of a township is being formed. The place next in importance is the Eastern River diggings, the locality of which is about 40 miles W. by N. of Clermont, and across the Drummond Range. With a good supply of water, there is ample gold-bearing country to afford profitable employment to a large number of diggers. The Wolfgang diggings are situated about ten miles north of Clermont, and here

228 228 COUNTRY DIRECTORY. there are some hundreds of Chinamen, and but few Europeans. Diggers are now at work also on the watershed of the Burdekin River, on the heads of the Belyando. Altogether the Drummond diggings generally igaintain their position as one of the best " poor man's" fields in Australia ; whilst the quartz reefs, which abound over the whole district, will sooner or later furnish profitable investment for capital. The chief drawback to the development of this source of wealth has been the great cost pf carriage between Rockhampton and the diggings. Some idea may be gathered of the yield of the Peak Downs fields from the fact that, during the twelve months ending 30th September, 1864, 15,000 ozs. of gold were manifested at the Rockhampton custom house ; and it is only fair to assume that a large additional quantity has either been kept in hand, or taken out of the colony without the cognizance of the customs' officials. An Act passed during the last session of the Queensland Parliament, imposes a duty of Is. 6d. per oz. on gold exported. Next in importance to the auriferous riches of this district comes the Peak Downs copper mine. This was discovered about two and a-half years since by Mr. John Manton, a gentleman possessing long experience in copper mines in South America and Australia. Through his instrumentality a company was formed soon afterwards in Sydney, by whom the mine is now being worked. The property on which the mining operations are being carried on, consists of four or five blocks of 80 acres each, purchased from the Government of this colony, under the 22nd clause of the Crown Lands Alienation Act of 1860, which gives considerable encouragement to mining enterprise. It is distant from Clermont about four and a-half miles to the westward, and the road to Theresa Creek, Peak Vale, and other stations to the westward and on the Belyando, passes between two of the fenced-in blocks. Although active operations were commenced in this mine about twenty months since, and over a thousand tons of rich ore have been brought to the surface, the difficulties consequent upon the discovery of rich deposits in the adjacent gold field, the floods, and the great distance this place is from Rockhampton, have materially tended to retard the erection of proper smelting works for the reduc, tion of the ore to a marketable commodity. These drawbacks have, however, been at length overcome, and a good set of smelting works erected, and thus encouragement has been given to the directors to continue mining operations with vigor. Already four or five shafts have been sunk on one block alone, which have advanced to a considerable depth, and afford promise of a continued rich yield. The ore hitherto obtained has been exceedingly rich, surpassing in the per tentage of coppery fielded, that of the

229 COUNTRY DIRECTORY. 229 far-famed Burra Burra mines of South Australia. Independently of the smelting works there are on the property, a handsome manager's residence and offices, a large store, blacksmith's shop, and commodious buts for the accommodation of the workmen. Since the furnaces have been got into operation, the company have forwarded a considerable quantity of copper to Sydney, by way of Broad Sound. By taking this route they will save a considerable amount in the cost of carriage, that port being at least 120 miles nearer than Rockhampton, which has hitherto been the port of shipment. Altogether the prospects of this mine are such as to justify the hope that it will give remunerative-employment to a large number of miners, and yield a large return to the shareholders. Allured by the prospects of the Peak Downs copper mine, several other mineral blocks have been taken up by private individuals, and a company formed under the name of "The New Peak Downs Copper Mining Company ;" the operations so far, however, are not sufficiently advanced to enable us to predicate anything of their probable success. CLERMONT and BROAD SOUND. Opinions differ as to the best and shortest route between these two points.

It may be useful briefly to describe a route taken by drovers from Port Denison to the Peak Downs. Starting from Salisbury Plains the first stage is to the Bowen River ; crossing that river at Byrne's Hotel there is a good dray track from thence to Walker and Ferguson's. There is water in a large sandy creek halfway from Walker's to the Bluff ; and about six miles from Walker's there is a sheep station belonging to Dr. Wilkin on the Sutton waters. From the Bluff to the Lookout station there is a good, plain, marked tree line, and plenty of water, the Sutter having to be crossed several times ; but from the Lookout to Eaglefield, Dr. Wilkin's head station, water is rather scarce. Leaving Eaglefield, the next stage is to Bailey and Newton's sheep station, within a few miles of the Isaacs river ; on this part of the road there is no track, but there are fine open downs, and the directions taken at Eaglefield are easily followed ; here also water is scarce. From Bailey and Newton's to Graham's station, close to the Port Mackay road, at the crossing of the Isaacs, following the course of that river, there is plenty of feed and water, but no track, and the ground, which is for the most part sandy, would be rather heavy for loaded teams. Fro n Graham's to Logan Downs, and from thence to Wolfgang station, there is a good road, and water most of the way. From Wolfgang to Clermont there is a good road, with plenty of water. 1IIACKAY(via NEBO) and AVON DOWNS. The post office has been removed from Fort Cooper to Nebo, which is 65 miles from Mackay. From Nebo to Avon Downs a mail is about to be established, and the route taken will be as follows : Nebo to Oxford Downs, 9 miles ; thence to Native Police Barracks, 26 miles ; thence to Grosvenor Downs, 16 miles ; thence to Grant's, 15 miles ; thence to Logan Downs, 15 miles ; thence to Tindall Downs, 35 miles ; thence to Avon Downs, 32 miles ; total, 148 miles.

The distance from Bowen via Mount M`Connell, to Fort Albany, the most distant station on the Flinders, is as follows

236 236 COUNTY DIRECTORY. Bowen to Bogie public-house miles Thence to Strathmore Hidden Vale Mount Wyatt Mount M`Connell Natal Downs Hughenden Albert Downs Marathon (R. Sheaffe's) Richmond Ds. (W. Hayes) 30 Fort Albany (Henning's) Total On the range dividing the waters of the Thompson from the Burdekin-to which locality, by the way, it seems to be confinedthere grows a poisonous plant which has caused considerable loss to stock owners-sheep, cattle, horses, &c., all alike being fatally affected by it. This plant has been compared with " a bush which the aborigines of South Australia use for poisoning fish. In growth it varies in height, but it seems to reach perfection when six feet high. It is found upon the most barren ridges and rises, in soil of light brown color, and of a slaty description. The bush may be seen from the road I have laid down, and will be easily discerned at the distance by its very green fresh looking appearance. It is sufficiently far from the track to be of no danger while travelling. Care, however, should be taken not to camp within easy access of it. The blossom is of a dark red color, and similar in shape to the pea or indigo flower." The ' track " just alluded to is one by which Mr. Henning' party avoided the poison, and is as follows -Fort Cooper to Lake Elphinatone, 34 miles ; thence to Kirk and Sutherland's, 25 miles ; thence to Dr. Wilkin's lambing station, 28 miles ; thence to Conway (a rough road), 35 mules ; thence to Mount M`Connell, 32 miles ; thence to Natal Downs, 70 miles ; thence to Amelia Creek, 18 miles ; thence to Billy Webb's Lake, 50 miles ; thence to Desert Water Holes, 14 miles ; thence to Emu Creek, 30 miles ; thence to Skeleton Creek (Thompson Waters), 37 miles ; thence to Jardine Creek (Flinders Waters), 10 miles; thence to Henry's station (Flinders River), 15 miles ; thence to Collins and Walpole's station, 35 miles ; thence to Marathon (Sheaffe's), 10 miles ; and thence to Richmond Downs, 25 miles; total, 468 miles. This route we have copied from a letter furnished to the Northern Argus, in which it is also stated that the road is well watered and grassed all along. The following route, showing all the camping-places, was furnished to the Port Denison Times by a correspondent in July last, viz.:-

237 COUNTRY DIRECTORY. 237 Bogie to Sellheim 's, 24 miles ; thence to Bowen, 5 miles; thence to Isabella Creek, 30 miles ; thence to Mount Wyatt, 10 miles ; thence to Mount M'Connell, 20 miles ; thence to Cape River, 9 miles ; thence to Natal Creek, 61 miles ; thence to Natal Downs, 9 miles ; thence to Amelia Creek,* 18 miles ; thence to Billy Webb's Lake, 51 miles ; thence to Dead Mare's Camp, 7 miles; thence to Desert Waterhole,t 7 miles; thence to Alick's Creek, 5 miles ; thence to Torreus Creek,$ 4 miles ; thence to Bullock's Creek, 18 miles ; thence to Little Creek, 10 miles ; thence to Prairie Creek, 13 miles ; thence to Coxen's Creek, 13 miles ; thence to Jardine Creek, 14 miles ; thence to Henry's station, 11 miles ; thence to Albert Downs (Walpole's), 35 miles ; thence to Marathon, 10 miles ; thence to Richmond Downs, 25 miles ; thence to Henning's, 130 miles ; total, 539 miles. The country between Mount M`Connell and Natal Downs is not so good as that now generally taken up, and. has consequently, we are informed, been passed over. Water and grass is plentiful on the above route, and the road is good if the Cape be followed up for about 60 miles to within 35 miles of Hughenden, at which point the traveller drops on Flinders waters. Hughenden is on the head of Jardine Creek. Walker's Creek runs into the Flinders, on the south bank, below Henning's, and at the back of Walker's Table Mountain. Twenty miles south-west of Hughenden, is Mount Walker station, Messrs. Kirk and Sutherland's, who have the north side of the creek ; Mr. J. Rankin (Acton) being on the south side. The country between Hayes' and Fort Bowen Mount is not taken up, being generally flat. Fort Bowen run consists of open and slightly undulating country ; it is now (December, 1864) the lowest station on the Flinders, and is about 150 miles from the Gulf of Carpentaria. Stations are being constantly formed in the north and northwest, and country which, but a very few years ago, was known only to the explorer, is now commonly traversed by parties in search of runs. There is a harbor at Cleveland Bay, with a good road thence to the Upper Burdekin ; a port has been established at Rockingham Bay, called Port Hinchinbrook ; and a settlement has been formed at Port Albany, near Cape York, at thejoint cost of the Imperial and Queensland Governments. * A small batch of poison about 25 males from the Cape River. t Five miles of poison to drive through. $ Poison six miles from Torrens Creek, on the left side of the road.
