Sporting Notes from the metropolis. FflOM ODE SPECIAL OOBRJSSPOMJjDfT. BfilSfcAUE. April 29. THE continued wet weather has kept sport' itig affairs sadly backward ; bat now that it has cleared up a bit, if it only continues fine, we shall soon be in full swing.

BRISBANE AFFAIRS, FROM OUR SPECIAL CORRESPONDENT. Mav 1. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion — 12 May 1880
BBISBANE AFFAIRS, FBOM OUB SPECIAL COBBEflPONDENT, Mav 1. THIS May day opens with the most brilliant weather imaginable. For the lost fow days wc havo had weather nearly up to the des cription of Queensland in the old descriptive handbooks. We have no festivities to marie liny day, there is no hawthorn bloom to gather, and although wo have plenty of sweeps they don't dancc in our streets. Politically, there is life in the diy bones ?gain, and they arc rattling ominously. The Gazette calling for tenders for trunk line extensions has been made the test for unfav orable comment throughout the press in thi'B part of the colony. The objection is against the line being any further extended except on oondition that the cost is to be made a charge on the back country laud. The Courier this morning strikes in on the same line. It is possible that thlB may result in s mora decided public movement, because I notice that no one here, Government supporter or oppositionist, seems to care about th...
