The Western Star. ROMA, SATURDAY, APRIL 15, 1876. [Newspaper Article] — Western Star and Roma Advertiser — 15 April 1876

3®t MMcra S&rr. ROMA, SATURDAY, APRIL 15, 1876. The next session will probably see—if:we are to judge by the hints that have leaked out—a bill brought in by the Ministry to secure to the colony the blessings of local government. That a measure of the kind has long been wanted no one will deny; that the one- which "will be laid oil the table of the House will meet every requirement is not quite so certain ; and, judging from the pre liminary advocacy in the Telegraph a few days back, we should think that it will meet in some respects with considerable opposition. As we understand the general outline given in the article to which we refer, it would seem jthat the Government propose to have two clasSes-of local bodies for the administration ; of fundslivMMMefor purely local purposes— one elective, the otlier__noniinees of the cen tral authority. . How, if thg extent of ad ministrative function to jbe vested in the local board or council is limited, .the refusal of the inhabitan...

" The " Mothers* Window," placed at the western end of the .church, ;«was.paid for by the subscriptions of mothers whose children have been b&ptised by the Rev. W.~ T. Warner.

THE RIVER DARLING COUNTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Western Star and Roma Advertiser — 15 April 1876

I THE RIVER DARLING COUNTRY. Whoever has the misfortune to travel on the roads betwen Bourke and Wentworth during the present (January and February) jngBiih&=of-the year 1876, will meet not only with personal discomforts, but be an eye-wit ness of the disastrous losses which the squat ters have to submit to in consequence of the absence of rain. The river is low and be coming. stagnant. At Jandra, the first sta tion one comes to after leaving Bourke, there is not very much to complain of, because there has been a little rain on portions of that ran. At Yanda, the next station, misery begins to be developed—cattle perishing in hundreds. At Fort Bourke Station a seri ous loss in cattle has already been entailed. I was not on this run, but heard of the severe losses, from a reliable source. At Toorale there is suffering, though not so much as con jectured, because there is water inland on ihis ran, and a good supply of dry grass. The head station is being removed from. Toorale ...

BRIDGE BUILDING IN AMERICA. [Newspaper Article] — Western Star and Roma Advertiser — 15 April 1876

BRIDGE BUILDING IN AMERICA. " An Australian," writing from San Fran cisco to the Sydney Mortiing Herald on " American progress," gives the following in stance of cheap and quick bridge building :— Philadelphia is a large prosperous city, a city very jealous of its reputation for public works—as much so as Sydney perhaps. Several of the bridges in Philadelphia are built of timber, of pine logs and sawn stuff, because this material is suitable and available. There are several fine bridges in Philadelphia, and I do not know that there is a dis reputable one in the place. During Novem bet* last one of the bridges (that in Market street) over the Sckuylkill was burnt down —timber bridges burn and those of stone, : iron, or brick fall occasionally. There were great lamentations over theold Market-bridge. With the centennial gathering from all parts of the world to take place in a few months, the gap in a popular thoroughfare caused by the destruction of the bridge was felt to be a blemish...
