Brisbane, 29th December, 1859.
I have the honor to transmit a
copy of a letter from the Surveryor-General
2. I rely on the courtesy of
the New South Wales Government for
immediate and favourable consideration
of the request contained therein, relating
to a subject which is of vital
importance to this Colony.
3. The Mayor of the City of
Brisbane has also applied for all maps,
or copies of maps, of that Municipality.
If any such exist at Sydney, I
request that they may be transmitted
together with the documents applied for
by the Surveyor-General.
I have &c.

Brisbane, 2nd January, 1860.
I have the honor to transmit, for
the information of Your Excellency, and
of the Government of New South Wales,
the enclosed copy of a notification
which has appeared in the Queensland
Gazette, respecting tenders for News in the
recently proclaimed districts of Kennedy
and Mitchell, now within this Colony.
2. It is from no want of
respect towards the New South Wales Government
that the Executive of this Colony have
modified, to some extent, the decision
arrived at on this subject; but simply
from a desire to give time for an
expression of opinion on the land question
on the part of the Queensland Legislature;
and because the departments of this
Administration are not yet sufficiently
organised to enable them to enter upon
so important a task. Further, parties
now engaged in exploring the districts
referred to are anxious that the period
for sending in their tenders should be
prolonged. In short, I am confident
that the Government of New South Wales, if
placed in the same peculiar position as
that of Queensland, would have adopted
the same course.
I have &c.
Sig[d]. / G. F. Bowen
Brisbane, 3rd January, 1860.
I have the honor to acknowledge
the receipt of Your Excellency's despatch
of the 20th Ultimo, enclosing for publication
in the Queensland Government Gazette, your
Proclamation of new date, and the
annexed opinion of His Honor the
Chief Justice of New South Wales.
2. I enclose copies of the Gazette
Extraordinary in which I have caused
