STOCK AND STATION REPORT. FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT. CHARLEVILLE, July 22. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion — 26 July 1879
STOCK AND STATION REPORT, FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT. CHARLEVILLE, July 22. A mob of 247 bullocks left Yarronville on the 14th instant for wilcannia. BLACKALL, Friday Evening DURING the whole of this week and from Saturday last the rain has fallen in an almost continuous downpour. A strong cold wind waas blowing on Tuesday, which brought up a fresh instalment of rain, and the sudden fall of the mercury in the barometer gave warn- ing of impending flood rains. The river is running, and the rain appears general. This &nbsp; season has been altogether different from any experienced in the district before, as the end of June usually terminates the rainy season, and the weather remains fair for six months afterwards. Judging by present appearances we are likely to have a continued flood. &nbsp; Stock movements and sales have been much impeded by this weather, and the commencement of shearing has been postponed owing to the same cause. We understand that the price for shea...

Champion. WtM Uteris jntortfti;. BLACKALL, SATURDAY, JULY 26. IF our memory serves us aright it is not so very long ago since the Queenslander newspaper was a staunch supporter of the pastoral interest. It did not then refer to pastoral tenants as "men whose &nbsp; judgments are clouded by class hatred." To accuse them of " arrogant enuncia- tion of baseless claims, of flaunting class interests, class politics, and class preju- dices before the rest of the community," was not at that time the policy of the Queenslander. The squatters then were a powerful and important section of the community, to resist whom a mightier influence was needed than that possessed by the leading journal of the colony. The Queenslander, or the Courier-for we presume the policy of one journal is that of the other-has now thrown its previous opinions to the winds, and comes before the public in an entirely new character. Tho worst of drunkards when reformed become the most bigoted of teetotallers ; ...
