The opening of the Eailway to Gunning during the past week should stimulate the inhabitants of this town and neighbourhood to increased exertions to induce the Govern ment to have the road from that township to Burrowa put in good repair. Our readers will observe from the tenor of Mr. Fitz Patrick's letter, which we insert in another column, that there exists somewhere in the official mind a prejudice against this road which is both unjust in itself and injurious to the interests of the district. No township in this part of the colony has been more completely neglected than Bur rowa with respect to expenditure upon its roads. It is true that trifling sums have been annually placed upon the estimates to be thus expended ; but the money lias been I doled out with a niggard hand, and subse- 1 quently, through the gross neglect of the j Government, the vote has frequently lapsed. The Gunning road in particular has suffered from this cause, and up to the present time has been the great b...

THE ROAD FROM GUNNING TO DALTON AND BURROWA The following correspondence has been obligingly forwarded to us (Yobs Courier) by Mr. Fitz patrick, M.P. : — '251, George-street, Sydney. 11th October. 3875.

The Camfoiinian Mail Service.— We (Canter bury Press) cannot srse that the House is bound by action taken directly in the teeth of its authority. For our own part we very much doubt wlietlier Hie (Jaliiornian service is worth main taining at all. The southern part of New Zealand is admirably served by the P. and 0. line, con nection with which must always be kept up ; and for the rest, a subsidized steamer to Sydney would be of more use, at a tithe of cost, than the most elaborately equipped line to San Francisco. How ever, things have gone so far that the colony could hardly break off its engagement with New South Wales without exposing itself to a charge of repudiation. Still the Assembly is not bound to ratify the contract as it stands. The con tractors are ready to abandon the route now laid down, and to subsfitnte the route via Auckland, for which they will reduce their subsidy to £75,000. The expenditure of the other £15,000 then is sheer waste. Why in the world should the col...

The importance to these districts of any improvement in their staple product, and the acknowledged success of annual exhibitions of superior stock in promoting this object, are a sufficient apology for our following the ex ample of our contemporaries, and offering a few remarks on the late Sheep Show in Yass, and the programme for the coming year issued by the committee. The value of the Australian merino may be said to depend principally upon its excel lent combing qualities. Under the influence of this genial climate and the natural pastur age, the best types of Saxon or Spanish sheep acquire new qualities — their wool increases in length, while it preserves its character and serration. The rapid expansion of the fine worsted trade has also had a reciprocating influence on the sheep in this and the neigh bouring colonies, and while, on the one hand, that trade could not have assumed its present large proportions but for Australian wool, on the other, the superior profit which it h...
