THE NATIONAL ASSOCIATION. 1 -'/• (From the Gowrkr.) 1 Mr. J Brukton Stephens has, at ourre quest, -written the following verses on the opening of the forthcoming National Society's Exhibition. Our readers will, we think, agree ;tra£h ns that the poemis worthy to rank among the hest of itB author's detached pieces:— OPENING HYMN. While nations joining rafts Their fanes of Art adorn, Hear, Lord, the lowly voice that lifts The song of the youngest bom. The gifts of the youngest-born, We spread tliem forth to Thee, — What toil hath -wrought, what skill hath taught, What freedom hath brought the free, .No storied name -we vaunt, Nor martial trophies raise ; No battle-riven banners flaunt The triumphs of other days. But triumphs of peaceful days Adorn our jubilee Here toil and skill Thine ends fnllfil, With hands that from blood are free. We pile the arms of Peace, - Her trophies manifold, Her ploughshare swords, her shields of fleece, Her armour oi bloodless gold. Our treasures of fleece...

COMMERCIAL. Western Star Office, Friday Evening. [Newspaper Article] — Western Star and Roma Advertiser — 19 August 1876

COMMERCIAL. Western Star Office, . Friday Evenine. . .There baa been a considerable improvement in business during the week, owing principally to the influx of visitors for the races. Several teams have amred, and many more are within a few miles of the town, eo that several lines which were out of stock are now- plentiful. Carriage remaining very high, little or no reduction of prices can be expected -atpresent. The only stock transaction that Iim come onder our notice is the eale of a fine mob of 100 head of fat cattle from Mr. Jonathan Hlean's Maxvale Station, to the Roma Butchering Company. The price realised was £1 7s. per head, bat they ate prime, many of them weighing over 1100 lbs. Their condition on delivery in Boma, reflects credit on the gentleman in charge of them, Mr. B. W. Bateman. Messrs. Fenwick and Scott (Brisbane) report having sold, at their Oxley Yards, on Thursday, a draft of yery prime fat ewes, on accqant of G. H.

EXHALATIONS FROM MY PIPE". By Pan. "We think that Saunders Macklewhaim ought to be ashamed of himself, for he appears to be determined not to let yoang George. and his colleagues alone.

RACE FOR THE SCULLERS' CHAMPION SHIP OF THE WORLD. [By cable from New Zealand.] The race between Joseph Sadler, of the Thames, and Edward Trickett, of Port Jackson, for the championship of the world and £4.00, took place on the afternoon of June 27, over the usual course from Putney to Mortlake. Both men had been in active training up to the timo .when the event was to be decided, the Australian being under the care of Harry Kelly and Mr. James Punch. On the eventful day, long before the appointed time, the banks of the old river, from the two points named above, were lined with enthusiastic spectators. . The betting before the event was largely in favour of the English champion, and at starting it culminated in 2 to 1 on Sadler. At the appointed hour both men appeared, and seemed to be in the'Very best condition ; a good start was effected, but Sadler caught the water first, and was one stroke in advance' of Trickett, and maintained a slight leadas far: as Duke's Head Hotel, rowing...

The " licee" question as the i;Chinamen wouldisay,'is so 'far settled that the resolution has been passed in Committee, though the House had to sit tilT after five in;the morn ing, and the new Customs Act introduced. Mr. Murphy, as member for the district of C:iok, though he approves of the measure, presented a ■ petition in Chinese from the numerous celestials who are not his constituents, and another from the Europeans whom he does represent against the imposition.

SURAT. [FEOM OtTB OWN CORRESPONDENT.] : {This letter has been delayed by some cause, as it did not reach us till Saturday last.] , . July 20. We are on the brink of a famine here; the river is running over the stage erected for the -bridge^ In about a week, unless jwe.get a supply from one of the neighbouring stations, we shall be literally without bread.

DALBY. [FKOM OUB. OTO COKKESPONDENT. 1 The action for libel taken by Dr. Concanon against Dr. Howlin, was brought to an issue in the Supreme Court last Monday. I referred to thiB case in a former letter, and the further par ticulars are these :—The libel complained of was contained in a letter written by Dr. Howlin to Dr. O'Doherty, of Brisbane. It appears to have been sent in a confidential way on the strength of old friendship, and how it came to Dr. Con canon's knowledge can only be surmised. The epistle, which at one time seemed so full of dire portents, but which is now like the scathing lightning conveyed harmlessly into the bosom of mother earth by the conducting rod, runs as follows:— "Deab O'Doherty,—A gentleman calling him self Dr. Concanonhas been sojourning here for the past few weeks, daring which time he has made himself particularly obnoxious to me through his touting for practice amongst my patients, and in making overtures to benefit societies of which i am the medi...
