North-easterly -winds have prevailed more or less strong at intervals, but the cloud area has been con fined principally to the far south-west, where lightning storms have been visible during the last two nights. Yesterday was warm and cloudy in ttiu south-west, with indications of approaching atmospheric change. There has been little wool in during the week, caused probably by the roads not being 111 very good order.

.Itfi 1 latent Vita sine Uteris mors est. BARCALDINE, TUESDAY, MAY 3U892T THE Government has decided to dispense with the services of some of the officials in the Department of Water Supply, and it is stated that the Department will soon be dispensed with, or amalga mated with that of the Works and RiTors'^Rmrtnicnt. It might very well be abolished altogether; for, al though during its reign tkc colony has benefitted by the immense ArtesmttsSBP plies discovered, it was by mere accident that this happened during the time Mr. HENDERSON held the incumbency of Hydraulic Engineer. It has been a most extravagant and fatuously incom petent Department. The work it has done is a record of disaster and expenses. It commenced by spending a small fortune in putting down the pioneer bore at Blackall. The Engineer engaged as foreman of the work a man who was far behind the times in knowledge of appliances used in boring; and for two years the country was paying salaries, wages, and repairs on a p...

?V-V-' \ " P |jte IT is said in Brisbane that Mr. Banking, P.M. at Wooloongabba, keeps a tight rein on the lawyers who appear before him. THE rising piccaninnies in Brisbane have discovered an easy way of raising money for the circus. They visit the suburban gar dens during the day to beg flowers for " their little sister's coffin," and make bouquets aud button-holes to sell outside the theatres at night. QUEENSLAND Punch publishes a cartoon this month representing Sir Charles Ziilley hesitating between two offers-the red tape and tricolor on the one hand, and titles and money on the other; but the vexed question of which his Honor will take is not answered. IT is seriously stated that Berry, the British ex-hangman, proposes to go round j lecturing on "Men I Have Hung." The lecturer is likely to be the recipient of many tributes in the shape of bad eggs if he visits Australia. SIAVIN has determined on visiting Australia at the conclusion of his American tour, which will take place a...
