It ■will undoubtedly prove an invaluable v.ork - in the hands of the colonist, whether farmer, squat ter, or ordinary settler. Its scope is very com prehensive.

The former treats of the different processes of cultivation, viz., ploughing, grub-' bing and harrowing. The different methods of carrying Out these, particularly ploughing, are well defined, both verbally and by excellent illus trations, from which their relative merits may be easily judged. The all-important subjects of draining, irrigation, manuring, and rotation of crops are not neglected. Upon manuring and rotation of -crops the author gives some sound advice which many might take to their advan tage—" Rich land is the article looked for, and, ■when obtained, it'lias in too man...

A RAILWAY TO ROMA. To the Editor of the Western Star. [Newspaper Article] — Western Star and Roma Advertiser — 15 May 1875

A RAILWAY TO StOlEC *?o the Editor of the Western Star. Sis,—I am happy to perceive in yotir leader of the 1st instant some practical hints as to what we should do to show the resources, and call at tention to the necessities, of the Westeril districts of the colony. There is no doubt, if we do not benpandctif ring, "we will he left out in the cold, as we always have been at the end of the session; and, al though the Minister for Workshas introduced a bill to authorise the "construction of a railway from Dalby to the Gulf of Carpentaria,, stillit is very likely that that will be the end of it for some years to come. It appears to me that the chief reason for the - failure of the scheme of Messrs. Collier and Co. was that they were under the impression—ob tained, of course, from travellers tip aiid down by coach—that die' country between Dalby. and Roma is almost a desert, and that they could not get ettbugh of land along the line fo pay them for their outlay.

LICENSING PUBLIC-HOUSES. To the Editor of the Western Star. [Newspaper Article] — Western Star and Roma Advertiser — 15 May 1875

LICENSING PUBLIC-HOUSES. To the Editor of (he. Western Star» See.,:—Cliarleville and district seem to be gain ing ail unenviable notoriety lately: muxder, rape, or suicide flash along the wires nearly every week. No doubt drink is at the bottom of it alL One great cause of crime in unsettled districts is indiscriminate licensing. . I have heard that the Government look upon it as ah evil that in couse of time will work its own remedy; mean time, the Government require money badly, So that any rogue or vagabond call have a license if he puts up a house -with the requisite accommo dation and pays, his fee. - There are towns where public-houses are so numerous that it is simply impossible for all of them to gain an honest liv ing, and I need not infurrit your western readers what means are adopted to make these concerns pay. I should think a. police magistrate ought never to grant a-license without being thoroughly satisfied as to the previous good conduct and character of tke japplica...

Scstmt ROMA, SATURDAY, MAY 15, 1875. The session, which has just commenced pro mises no common field for dispute. "Without commenting upon the Speech, "which has been, already" discussed ad ita/useum, we- may": refer, to the two circumstances which most concern ourselves—the position of Mr. M'Ilweatth with the late Ministry, and the proposed rail way to the Gulf of Carpentaria. The two are in some sort intertwined with each other, both from the part taken, in the first projec tion of the scheme by the late Minister for Works, and the imitation which to a certain extent the Ministerial plan, is- of that sug gested by Messrs. Collier and Co. It would seem that Mr. M'Ilwraith hav ing consulted with Air. Hemmant and Mr. Stephens the details of the proposed scheme, they approved of it, and thereafter he then consulted Air, Macalisteb, who also fell in ■with the proposition. Mr. M'Ilweaith then went to Melbourne, and while there some alteration, took place inMr. Macalister's opinions. The...
