EXHALATIONS FROM MY PIPE. [Newspaper Article] — Western Star and Roma Advertiser — 22 April 1876

EXHALATIONS FROM MY PIPE.   [By Pan.] Although we do not advocate the infliction of corporal punishment on criminals as a rule, we were rather gratified than otherwise to learn that Judge Paul had awarded such punishment to one of the prisoners tried at the last District Court. It's our opinion that young fellow richly deserved such a sentence, and we hope the official at Brisbane, whose duty it may be to in flict the punishment, will do so with a will—not merely for the sake of punishing the present offender, but as a warning to deter others from committing such gross outrages against all decency. We can remember that flogging was the primary cause of the stoppage of the system of garrotting that obtained to such an excess some years ago in the old country; and we have no doubt but a few hearty applications of the cat-and-nine-tails would do much to diminish the number of such outrages as have just now been so sentenced by the Judge. The parties who made the mistakes a...

Carnarvon, to €hs petition concerning Sir Maurice O'CtmncJl'a remain ing at a banquet where the Pope's health was drank before the Queen's, lias been published. His Lordship states that there is no reason to suppose Sir Maurice O'^Connell -was'cognisant of the order in -which the toasts would be proposed, or that he approved of it. That gentleman had proved that he was aloyal subject of the Queen, and ilia lordship bould not advise Her Majesty to comply with the prayer of the petition, (which was to render Sir Maurice incapable of again being Acting Governor ) Friday, April 28. The banquet held last night to welcome back Mr. Macalister was a vey successful affair, 120 gentlemen being present. After responding to the toast of his health, the guest of the evening was obliged to retire owing to indisposition. Politics were scarcely touched upon.

MTTOHlST.Ti. fFBOM OfPE OWK COBBE3PONDKNT.J The great topic of debate here at present appeals to be all about a banquet and an illumi nated address, which is to be presented to Mr. Samuel Stewart, prior to his departure from here. Our dam lis drawing near completion, and the work so far is a credit to the local overseer (Mr. Toomey.) The excavation is over' 6 feet deep,' 60 feet wideband about 130 feet long. The main embankment is now-completed, and cannot be surpassed for evenness and strength. If the authorities take the necessary precaution to paddle the bottom, it will, on the whole, be the best finished work of its kind in this district. A mob of about 1000 head of mixed cattle, the property of the Messrs. Lord, passed through here on the 22nd instant, en route to Culloden Station, Thompson River. Mr. William Lowe, of Well Town, passed here on the same date with 13,000. sheep, travel ling up the Maranoa for grass. " April 24.

ttttt -niwanu namsTTRV [FROM A TRAVELIJNG CORRESPONDENT.] Under a broilingsuri at 10 a. m., I turned my back upon the town, of Taroom, on a tour through the Dawson district. My road lay for miles througli nought but flooded lands, which now are clad in rich verdure—a prey at any moment to the devastating inundations peculiar to the Dawson River. Only some ten days .previously I was a witness to the .suddenness of its rising. I saw it on a warm sunshiny day, at 10 a.m., running at its usual level; in two hours afterwards it was .flowing over our high-water bridge. . It was on an occasion like this that C. R. Haly, of Glen haughton, lost 4000 fine wethers, camped on its banks the night previously. There was nought but the astonished horse driver left to tell the tale on the morrow, and he was perched in a tree seeking refuge from the flood. After four niiies journeying, the prospect brightened, and the scene became more pleasing, the road taking its course over sound iroiibark ridges,...

®{p iefettffl j»far. ROMA, SATURDAY, APKIL 29, 1876. Bsroiro the fact that the Messrs. Ovebjends* tender has been accepted for the construction of the first two sections of the line 'to Roma, we are Hot at the present writing in posses sion of any information. Another Victorian capitalist of respectability, and we believe of means, left behind him a vigorous protest", as the lowest tenderer, against his being refused the contract; but as he gave no amounts, and none have (contrary to custom) been pub lished, we cad say little about it. The omis sion of the publication is an ugly circumstance coupled with the letter of the aggrieved party. It looks as if something like the old times of favouritism were returning, when Peto, Brassey, and Beits' agent made what the modest and just Fitzgibbon called an absurdly profitable contract, and out of his blunders added another absurdity of a couple of hundred thousands or so to the amount. The Messrs. Ovkrend are highly respectable men, and the...

He had been placed with' a woman near Roma, who was' paid by his brother to look 'after him ; she finding the payments somewhat irregular, J shifted the burden by giving him to another woman (the names I purposely suppress), said she; after a • while, from possibly the same reason as the former, getting, tired _of,.her bargain, -first tried starving; bim at home, but finding his obstinate vitality resisting all her efforts, she hit on a plan-"whic'i sh „• doubtless considered iyould be at once effective iuil economical.
