NORTH AUSTRALIAM JOCKEY CLUB'S j ANNUAL MEETING, 1876. | {From the Queensland Times.) First Day—Thursday, May 1L The annual race-meeting of fius club this year has, we are glad to say, proved one of the most successful ever held under its auspices. There was, as usual, a large attendance of the general public, amongst whom we noticed seve ral well known sporting characters from other parts of the colony, and also a few notables from some of the neighbouring colonies. We have never seen a larger attendance of the cardsharping fraternity , than was present on the course this year, to say nothing of the -swarm of " under-and-over" gentlemen, "thimble riggers," and.other loafing gentry of the same kidney, who at all times are ay intolerable nuis ance to the respectable portion of the community. We aire sorry to have to refer in anything but complimentary terms to the conduct of certain parties on Thursday" last. It is bad enough to stand by and see poor ignorant dupes "respect ably" rob...

EXHALATIONS FROM MY PIPE. [Newspaper Article] — Western Star and Roma Advertiser — 20 May 1876

PROM .MY PIPE. By Pan. For some weeks past we have observed in the columns of the Star notices from some of the selectors of Cattle .Creek of their intention to im pound all stock trespassing on their selections, and we were very glad to find that they were eo deter mined, because we have an idea that when a man pays his 'money, and has his portion allotted Mm, he alone should have the benefit of it, and most of the selectors in that locality are amply supplied with stock of their own to eat all thie grass that may be growing on any of their selections, and so you see. they cannpt possibly allow any of their neighbour?' stock tqget_a .feed. Of course, their selections are . quite'-sufficient for thoir own pur poses, and all their cattle, &c., arc depastured thereon, Oh yes ! quite so 1 Unfortunately, how ever, we were informed the other day that some of them must have made a miscalculation, and that it ■ is not so; because some of the very parties who were inserting the noti...

BRISBANE. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] [Newspaper Article] — Western Star and Roma Advertiser — 20 May 1876

BRISBANE. I [from our own correspondent. 1 We have political news indeed this week. Mr» King has resigned his portfolio as Minister (or Works, and has been succeeded by Mr. J. R. DicKfion, $ie well-known auctioneer, and mem 4»r forEhoggera. The resignation of Mr. Fryar as Minister for Lands is also said to be in the hands of the Ministry, and speculation is rife as to who is to succeed him. The resignation has not been accepted as yet, and it is generally sup ,posed because the Premier doesn't exactly know who* to appoint. Mr. Pettigrew, the member for. Stanley, is said to be the coming man, though for the Ministry to" take him would be ruination, and yet to refuse him is to make him ^n enemy. We shall soon see who it is to be. In any event, the Ministry are looked upon as doomed. May 13. •

DALBY. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] [Newspaper Article] — Western Star and Roma Advertiser — 20 May 1876

DALBY. [FROM OUR OWS CORRESPONDENT.] As no doubt your readers will, be anxious to know what is going on at this end of the Roma Sail way line, I will commence with that subject. - "Thefirst sounds of labour were heard in the "forest primeval," indicating a commencement of the work in connection with the Western; Railway Extension, on Thursday last, when forty men w/re put on, about two miles from town, as cleaners, and, axe in hand, commenced to level the giants.of the forest along the route of the line. -One difficulty these men have to contend with, is the scarcity of water in the vicinity of their work, and it is a matter of so mach importance as to deserve the attention .- of the contractor, who no doubt will make arrange ments to meet the want. Two men informed me last week that they had no drink from the -evening of one day to dinner time next day, . which was rather severe on men hard at work felling timber. The contractor, Mr. Overend, has written to the Government proposing...

PUBLICANS' LICENSES. To the Editor of the Western Star. [Newspaper Article] — Western Star and Roma Advertiser — 20 May 1876

PUBLICANS' LICENSES. To the Editor of the Western Star. See,—Will you kindly insert in your valuable paper the following, as a vindication of my character against the charges brought against me, on the 16th instant, by Sergeant Smyth. 1st. The principal charge was that I detained a cheque of W. B. Murphy's, the Police Magis trate remarking that all the other charges were so frivolous that no notice was taken of them. I certainly acknowledge that I did detain the cheque referred to, believing that I had a per fect right to do so ; it was paid me by Murphy as agent for A. F. Surlick, and was afterwards demanded from me by Murphy, when, as Surlick owed me. the money, I refused to give it up, believing it to be Surlick's money. Murphy then summoned me, and got a verdict against me. Surely, Mr. Editor, there is no great crime in that. It seems to me that the most I can be charged with is a mistake. 2nd. Smyth, in giving evidence, said that I «a a " horse soldierer." -Now, Sir/1 have been...

DISEASES IN STOCK COMMISSION. To the Editor of the Western Star. [Newspaper Article] — Western Star and Roma Advertiser — 20 May 1876

' I : DISEASES IN STOCK COMMISSION. 1 To the ^Editor of the Western Star. * 1 Sm,—-About twelve months ago circulars con taining a great number of .questions in reference to the diseases of stock, description of grasses most beneficial or detrimental to stocky soil, cli mate, &c., &c., to the squatters in1*this district and, I suppose, in other districts as well. They were issued by a Commission ill Brisbane to gain information- on these 'various subjects for the benefit of the colony. Now, nearly twelve months lias elapsed,'and nothing whatever has been heard of them. What has become of them 1 Have they been thrown into the waste-paper basket, or were the opinions of those interested in stock at so great a variance with each other as to prevent the Commission striving at a satisfactory conclusion? Surely, after, the expense of printing and issuing, they should have published some of them, and al lowed the public to judge. The apparent apathy displayed on this occa s...
