COMMERCIAL. The Pastoral Times of January 7th says;—From all directions we hear complaints of heat and dry weather. At Wilcannia the weather has been threatening, but no rain had fallen at the date of last advices. Ten young bulls (Buckley and Nunn's) passed in charge of Mr. Haughey, bound for Murweh Station, Warrego-River. On the 24th, 300 head of prime fat cattle passed for Adelaide from. Coongoola, in charge of Mr. Farrar. At Walgett eome showers of rain had fallen, .and a break-up of the drought was looked for. The. squattages were commencing to fail in their carry ing capacities, and on some stations preparations were being niailn to start stock on the roads for feed, At1 Narrabri (December 29) the drought TySutSmes, and matters pastoral are getting fast from bad to worse.

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. The Editor is not responsible for any opinions expressed by Correspondents, as these columns are open to tlve free discussion of aU subjects of public interest. To the JSditor-of the Western Star. Sir,—I beg to take exception to a part of the Annual Report of tlie Roma. Hospital winch appeared in your last issue ; I allude to that portion of it which reads thus :—" The thanks of the Committee and subscribers axe due to Dr. Fred. Smith for his attention and care when called upon to act as consulting surgeon, to which honorable, position that gentleman was lected, and which, he accepted at the beginning of last year." Now, any one and every one would infer from this style of expression that Dr. Smith had ren dered his services to the institution on several (at any rate a few) occasions. Whereas, it was only on one solitary occasion during the fourteen months of my professional charge that such ser vices, on his part, were asked for and rendered, and that too i...

THE UPPER WARREGO. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] [Newspaper Article] — Western Star and Roma Advertiser — 29 January 1876

THE UPPER WARREGO. • 1 fPBOM OOB OWN COHRESPONDENT. ] » . J Last year this distrietgained an unenviable notoriety from the number of capital offences sent to trial at Toowoomba. One or more of these offences were commited under the influence of drink, procured atr the notorious Burenda township. It was generally supposed, after what had happened there ; the distances from Charle ville—of stations near the head of the river, and being the almost unanimous wish of the residents most interested, that a Court-house and police station would be established there. It is thought by many this would have been done but for the opposition of one-man, who must have had great influence to cause the wishes of all the quietly disposed, in this portion of the district, to be set aside. This being holiday time, the scenes enacted at bush public houses, are worse than usual. From Burenda, five men started for the Nive—all said to be suffering the after-effects of Alcohol. One made hisnejct ap pearance...

DAXBY. [from our own correspondent. Another case of horse stealing on a large scale has just been discovered, and the perpetrators brought to book ere they could dispose of-their ill-gotten property. There were several princi pals in the affair, some of whom, not long ago, brought over, and disposed of, from New South Wales, a herd of horses, which having accom some Queensland' nags, which they hoped to have got down quickly to market, and disposed of before they would be missed. Upon travailing towards the coast, vid Dalby, they gave this town a wide berth, arid in their haste to get their plunder to. market they travelled by night, which circumstance giving rise to a suspicion that all was not right, the police were communi cated with, and instructions at once wired by them to detain men and horseB pending enquiries, which action was justified by the result, as a number of animals were claimed by different parties, who had not missed them, or considered them lost, so recent and ra...

EXHALATIONS FROM MY PIPE. BY PAN. [Newspaper Article] — Western Star and Roma Advertiser — 5 February 1876

EXHALATIONS FROM MY PIPE. By Pan. Give ns a larger reserve, is, and has been for some time past, the cry of many of our townsmen, and so it ought to be, for if we are to judge .from the number of horned cattle we saw coming into the pound yards the other day. from Blythdale, our reserve is decidedly too small for our purposes, and where else are we to keep our two or three milkers, now that all the grass has been eaten off ithe commons. -Why, we have no alternative but to turn 'em out, and let 'em take a good fill of the TingiiL <jr Bungeworgar&i grass. Jiiit it appears from a notice published last Saturday that some of as have more than two or three milkers, in fact, it appears that we have in our midst two or three in dividuals who are owners of from one to two hun dred. head of cattle, and it has been intimated to 11s that the said owners neither own nor lease a suffici ency of land whereon to depasture their herds.

COMBINED WOOLSHED AND WASHPOOT,. I To Hie Editor of the Western Star, Sir,—A short time since there appeared a letter in the Town and Country Journal to the editor thereof, pointing out certain advantages to be de rived from a combination of woolsheds and wash pools. Will you kindly permit me, through the medium of your columns, to offer a few remarks thereon. The writer of the letter alluded to states that no more yards or buildings would be required than those that are at present in existence on any sta tio:i, but he forgets to add that on most stations the washpool is generally at some distancefrpm-tlie woolshed ; that the adoption of his plan would ne cessitate the removal of either the woolshed or the washpool plant, and that "the doing so would be in most instances a very expensive undertaking, as in either case new buildings aud yards would have to be erected Another source of expense he acknow ledges, and that is for the heating apparatus for drying the sheep ; but even this...
