The Western Star. ROMA, SATURDAY, JANUARY 8, 1875. [Newspaper Article] — Western Star and Roma Advertiser — 8 January 1876
®I/£ Sis&itl ^far. ROMA, SATURDAY, JANUARY 8, 1875. Ordinary "busk roads in Queensland are not bad travelling for teams as long asihe traffic" is not too great. There are few importarit" dray traffic does not injure them, so -far as ordinary progress is concerned, but rather im -provesthem by hardening the ground, though it cuts them up a" good "deal, "to the armoyanoe* of travellers by coach and in light vehicles. -In -making . the ordinary day's stage, the teamster finds plenty of dray traffic an ad vantage upon the whole. It is an. excess of i travelling stock that is-^he carrier's enemy. It has been said of the Australian bullock driver, with perfect justice,, that so long as he can give his cattle plenty of grass he can go any where. A good road without feed is far. worse than a bad road with good feed. Travel ling sheep soon destroy die camps, and if ■ very numerous make the country along the road exceedingly bare, and consequently car riage becomes more difficult and ...

MR. R BALLARD AND THE NORTH ERN RAILWAY, We take the following observations from an article ia the Eockhampton Bulletin; — A novel method of railway construction has been tried on both Southern and North ern lines of Queensland. In the south the experiment.. has' *prove&lt;^ an unmitigated failure, and we are regretfully coming to the; conclusion that' in the north it has not proved a success. * * * * It is now nearly three years since the ceremony of turning the first sod was performed on the Northern Extension, At the time no promise- was given as to the date &lt;of completion, but the impression prevailed that in three years the ] line" would lie open for traffic "to within • a ] short distance of the Mackenzie River.

This was rather a stag gerer, as the Secretary of the Council had stated in a former letter that as soon as the members of the church here could collect £350 the council would 'entertain favourably an application for .the same amount, and on the strength of that, the churchwardens had had plans prepared, tenders called for, and had actually accepted Mr. Mai'ks tender for the erection of the church.
