If we needed any reminder of our fortunate circumstancesin these colonies we have it in the strong contrast one country after another, is showing to our own. first there was the Indian Famine, then the Chinese ; starving millions, then the want in Cornwall, and now the distress in Ireland Beyond the gratitude we should feel for our better circumstances there is also a hope that, especially out of our present abundance, we shall be willing to spare of our bounty for those who are wanting bread. The accounts published relating to the present state of things in Ireland speaks of the distress being greater than any that has been suffered since the gregt failure of the potato crop, and|it is also very wide spread. In Adelaide and other towns steps have already been taken for raising a relief fund, and now Burra is also coining forward and a public meeting is shortly to be held.

Sports at Hanson. The above sports took place on New Year's Day. The weather was excessively hot, but the attendance was really good, there being upwards of 300 people on the ground, among whom were visitors from the Burra, Mintaro, Saddleworth, Manoora, and other places, and it was pleasing to see such a number of the fair sex turn out. The sports on the whole were a great success, and praise is due to the secretary, Mr. George Hudson, for the energetic manner in which he worked to bring the sports off so welL The events of the day were well contested, especially the I5O and 100 yards flat races. It was found impossible to get up a cricket match with another club, so it was decided to have a one-innings scratch match in the morning before the races took place. G.

Our Rates for 1880. [Newspaper Article] — Burra Record — 9 January 1880

Oar Bates for 1880. It is an unfortunate characteristic of Burra life that nothing seems to arouse interest or attract attention except per sonal squabbles. Now we never yet found the man in Burra who, having had the opportunity, had not read all the latest personal remarks appealing in reports of meetings, letters from correspondents, or other form in oar columns and yet we have often found those (even Councillors) who did not take the trouble to read what was reported or otherwise stated about municipal matters and other local questions. We heard this week two persons in connection with our local bodies who did not know anything about the special grant being applied for by the Corporation though we referred to it fully and it was also men tioned in the report of the last Council meetingafortnight since in our columns, and like ignorance was manifested in reference to another matter which was the subject of a leading article and was also mentioned in the report of the Road Board me...
