, -The Surveyor-General has at length . - shown a desire to facilitate the settlement
i of the public lands by advertising j i for tenders for the survey and sub- ( j division of agricultural reserves in the More- ; - ton and Darling Downs districts, into allot- 1 : ments of 40 to 80 acres each. The success I - which has attended this mode of procedure . ¡ elsewhere cannot but follow upon its in tro- ¡ - duction into this colony ; and we hope the ' - result will be so satisfactory as to remove ' ' from the minds of those who are attached to ^ s the red-tape method of doing things, all ap.
; prehensive forebodings as to the consequences < ! of a departure from that system. . THE GOLD EXPEDITION.-Captain Me- chosk and party,-Mr. Glassock, second in i command, who started on their gold ex- ploring expedition on Saturday last, were compelled to return to Brisbane yesterday after having travelled about 12 miles. The reason of the interruption was the necessity of procuring a better driver, and that object having been accomplished, we believe the Captain resumed his expedition yesterday evening.
