STOCK AND STATION REPORTS. [BROOK & FOSBERY'S REPORT.] [Newspaper Article] — The Burrowa News — 11 July 1874
STOCK AND STATION REPORTS. [BROCK & FOSBERY'S REPORT.] Fat Stock.—There is a good demand for local &nbsp; consumption. We have to report sale of a small lot of prime bullocks, and two lots of wethers about being inspected. We quote : Bullocks, £7 5s. to £8 5s. ; cows, £5 15s. to £6 15s. ; wethers, 11s. 6d. to 13s. ; ewes, 9s. 6d. to 11s. Store Cattle.—The continued rains and flooded &nbsp; &nbsp; state of the country renders inspection almost impossible ; but, should the. weather take up, we have a few good lots to offer ; the demand con- tinues good. Quotations : Bullocks, £5 5s. to £6 5s. ; cows, £4 to £5. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Store Sheep.—Until after shearing we do not &nbsp; &nbsp; expect any transactions, there being very few at present in the market, but there are numerous buyers for young healthy sheep of either sex.

PRODUCE CIRCULARS. [Newspaper Article] — The Burrowa News — 11 July 1874
PRODUCE CIRCULARS. MORT AND CO.—The Ellora, bringing the P. and &nbsp; &nbsp; O. Co.'s mails by the Baroda via Suez, came to her anchorage on the 30th ultimo, and the Mikado, via San Francisco, on the 1st instant. By these opportunities we have advices regarding the London sales to the 14th May, and which, espe- cially in the case of washed wools, confirm the telegrams received at the time, reporting a decline on the rates ruling at the previous series. Light-conditioned greasy appears on the whole to have fared the best. The large number of bales available at the opening of these sales seems to have militated against any freedom in the competition, and hence the lower prices realised during the first fortnight ; but if sub- sequent telegrams are to be relied upon, a con- siderable recovery took place as the sales pro- gressed, and it became apparent that the supplies although undoubtedly large, were, at the reduced rates, being rapidly transferred to the proper chan...

NEWS PEE THE SUEZ MAIL. THE PEACE OF EUROPE. [Newspaper Article] — The Burrowa News — 11 July 1874
NEWS PER THE SUEZ MAIL. THE PEACE OF EUROPE. Earl Russell's interrogation in the House of Lords concerning a presumed correspondence which has taken place between the Cabinets of the Great Powers on the great possibility of future hostilities between France and Germany, and the desire of the Great Powers to maintain peace, created some sensation on the Continent. Condensed reports of this motion were sent to all the great capitals of Europe, and were read with much interest That an experienced statesman like Earl Russell should have demanded such cor- respondence, unless as an excuse for discussing foreign politics, no doubt created a certain amount of surprise at most foreign Courts. If diplomacy is to maintain international utility, it is quite obvious publicity cannot be given to the despatches of ambassadors which report on subjects and questions calculated, if made known, to influence national susceptibilities. The Earl of Derby's answers to the venerable statesman's interroga-...

HOW QUEEN VICTORIA ENTERTAINS. [Newspaper Article] — The Burrowa News — 11 July 1874
HOW QUEEN VICTOBIA ENTEBTAINS. I NEED not tell you how simple, plain, and per- fectly English and womanly are the habits and tastes of the (Jueen. The Prince of Wales, socially, is nothing more than a rich, sporting, pleasure-loving, English squire. The style of entertainment at the palace, for example, is quite like that you would receive at the house of the Duke of Sutherland or the Duke of Westminster. Nay, I have even heard the complaint hinted that when the Queen entertains officials at dinner, the viands are not as various or as well served as at any ordinary aristocratic gentleman's house. The Queen certainly sets an example of economy to her upper-class subjects. When she comes to London for the early parliamentary season, her favourite method of dispensing hospitality is to give garden parties and " breakfasts" in Buck- ingham Palace gardens, or in the private garden of Windsor Castle. Invitations to these are, of course, much sought for, because they are the most select ; ...
THE RESTORED NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — The Burrowa News — 11 July 1874
THE RESTORED NOTES. Some years ago—in the days of the thirty-shilling &nbsp; notes—a certain Irishman saved up the sum of eighty-seven pounds ten, in notes of the Bank of Ireland. As a sure means of securing this valuable property, he put it in the foot of an old stocking and buried it in his garden. where Bank note paper couldn't fail to keep dry, and to come out, when wanted, in the best preservation. &nbsp; &nbsp; After leaving bis treasure in this excellent place of deposit for some months, it occurred to the depositor to take a look at it, and see how it was getting on. He found the stocking-foot &nbsp; apparently full of the fragments of mildewed and broken mushrooms. No other shadow of a shade of eighty-seven pounds ten. In the midst of his despair, the man had the sense not to disturb the ashes of his property. He took the stocking-foot in his hand, posted off to the Bank in Dublin, entered it one morning as soon as it was opened, and staring ...

SITTINGS IIN BANCO. &nbsp; BEFORE SIR JAMES MARTIN, Chief Justice, Mr. Justice HARGRAVE, and Mr. Justice FAUCETT.

STOCK AND CROP RETURNS. [Newspaper Article] — The Burrowa News — 18 July 1874
STOCK AND CROP RETURNS. From the Registrar-General's returns for 1873-4, we (Sydney Mail) learn that the live stock return shows a considerable increase upon the previous year, 1872-3. The horses, up to last March, num- bered 328,014, a trifling decrease ; the horned stock numbered 2,710,374, showing an increase of 412,714 ; the sheep numbered 19,928,590, showing an increase of 2,368,542 upon the year 1872-3. This is a larger increase in sheep than has been made since 1868, when about the same addition was made in twelve months. Pigs have increased from 218,904 to 238,342. Now let us turn to the crops. The area of land under cropping is 456,824—about 2000 acres in &nbsp; &nbsp; excess of 1872-3. Of this area, wheat covered 166,646 acres ; maize, 116,141 acres ; barley, 3558 acres ; oats, 16,173 acres ; millet, 276 acres ; pota- toes, 14,212 acres ; tobacco, 199 acres ; sorghum and imphee for cattle food, green, 601 acres ; sugar cane, 6670 acres, 3565 being productiv...
FOOT-ROT. [Newspaper Article] — The Burrowa News — 18 July 1874
FOOT - ROT. (From " Veterinary Science," in Cyclopædia Britannica, 1860.) FOOT-ROT is the name given to this kind of disease &nbsp; as exhibited in sheep, among which it commits such disastrous and ruinous consequences, attack- ing, if neglected, the whole flock, so that in feed- ing they actually crawl on their knees before they become its victims. Hence it is regarded as in the last degree contagious. After a good deal of investigation, however, we have arrived at a dif- ferent conclusion ; and we discover in its history nothing more than the results of that domestic state to which we have subjected this useful animal. By nature not unlike the goat, it fre- quents the summits of the lofty mountains, where its hoofs, altogether analogous to those of the horse, are exposed to much tear and wear. When from these Alpine regions we transfer the sheep into our grassy lawns, our moorish lands, or sandy soils, this wearing away of the crust is put an end to ; it grows long, and pr...

No title [Newspaper Article] — The Burrowa News — 18 July 1874
STORMS are gathering fast and thick over the devoted heads of the Free-selectors ; the declarations of the Government and the de- cisions of our Courts of Law alike tend to show how precarious is the tenure upon which they hold their dearly acquired privileges ; the ruthless manner in which selections are now dealt with, and the simplest rights of the occupants disregarded, show the absolute necessity of an early and complete revision of the laws which now regulate the alienation and occupation of Crown lands The threatened forfeitures of the selections of conditional purchasers who do not happen to satisfy the Minister that they sufficiently fulfil the conditions of residence are already pressing heavily on bona fide selectors, while the genuine dummies successfully manage to escape. In a notable instance in this neigh- bourhood, on some representations made to the Government of insufficient residence on a conditional purchase, a forfeiture of the land of a bona-fide selector was d...
