ASSISTING THE FARMERS. SYDNEY. June 11. Fifty-one thousand bushels of seed wheat have been distributed among the farmers.
ANTI-HOME RULE DEMONSTRATION. BRISBANE, June 11. Mr John Dillon has been touring this colony. A large meeting of loyalists has been held here, and resolutions were carried disapproving of the introduction of bitterness and sectional feeling on a political question that does not affect this colony. The meeting further protested against Mr Dillon’s assumption that he had been received with welcome in Queensland, whereas the “ welcome ” did not even come from a majority of the intelligent Irish section of the community.
MR BENT’S FAILURE. MELBOURNE. June 11
