LIMITS TO THE INCREASE OF SHEEP AND CATTLE. (From the Sydney Morning Herald.) [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 19 January 1847
LIMITS TO THE INCREASE OF SHEEP AND CATTLE. (From the Sydney Morning Herald.) It has long been the fashion with Committees of the Legislative Council, and many of their wit- nesses, in estimating the prospective demands of the colony for pastoral labour, to speak of the increase of sheep and cattle us if it could be checked by no ordinary impediments save one -an inadequate supply of shepherds and stockmen. With reference to the increase of sheep, the honorable member for Murray, in the speech de- livered by him at the Goulburn meeting on Tuesday last, adverted to another impediment - the eventual want of markets for our fleece. Mr. M. is reported to have said - " He must own, however, that he saw no permanent remedy for this evil, for the supply of labour spoken of would be far insufficient to meet the demand as the stock itself increases ; and the result must be, that the sheep-farmers would have in the end to turn their attention to some other pursuit.

The accounts from the Wanganui district are most cheering, the gloomy depression arising Irom the outrages of the natives, and the sus- pension of agricultural operations having entirely passed away, and its progress to prosperity now as astonishing. lleki, though refraining from open outbreak, was still agitating, and moving about, accom panied by a party of young men on horseback, «fleeting great state.
