"Yanburra" is the native name for what the whites call Cas sidy's Broadwater, a magnificent sheet of water on the property, and which was never known to be dry. It consists of 40,000 acres of splendidly grassed country, is situated on the western side of the Thompson, about 45 miles from Muttaburra, 30 from Longreach, and eight from Camoola, and is the property of Messrs.

It was a very great pity that people at home who talked about Australia did not take the trouble to come and look at it, or to make themselves really acquainted with the affairs of Australia.

FRIGHTFUL ACCIDENT BY BURNING. THE Thargomindah Herald reports a sad accident on Durham Downs, which unfortu nately terminated in the death of both the victims-Mrs. J. Grace and her sister (Miss O'Connor). Particulars to hand are very scanty, but from what we can gather it appears that on the 3rd inst., whilst she was engaged in cooking, Miss O'Connor's dress caught fire, and in an endeavor to extinguish the flames Mrs. Grace's clothes also became ignited. The only assistance at hand was that, of a black gin, who eventually succeeded in extinguishing the fire by means of water, but not before both women had been very severely burnt, and they lay for several hours before any further aid arrived. In spite of the tenderest care they never rallied and died on Saturday last. Mrs. Grace leaves two young children. The greatest sympathy is felt for their sister (Mrs. T. A. Emery) and Mr. Grace in their bereave ment.
