COMMERCIAL. Western Star Office. Friday Evening. [Newspaper Article] — Western Star and Roma Advertiser — 22 May 1875

COMMERCIAL. Western Star Office. Friday Evening. During the week several drays loaded for Charle ville and stations west of Roma have passed through. Drays loaded for Roma, however, are still anxiously expected, only a few having arrived during the week. Business is inclined to be better, but winter stocks are scarce pending fresh arrivals. Parcels of flour have been quitted during the week at £29 to £30 ; also, a small parcel of sugar at £39. Carriage is still on the rise. There is no produce to forward down country. Mr. E. Bellgbove reports :— During the past week but few incidents of any actual necessity for noting have occurred. On Monday about 200 head of good store cattle, the property of Messrs. Ramsay and Beit, passed through on their way to Tooloombilla; as also about 4000 sheep from Bogarilla, bound for Dalby. ,3000 picked ewes, the property of Messrs. Rome, are in the neighbourhood, en route for Northampton Downs. —There has been no alteration in sales of sta tion propert...

NIVE RIVER. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] [Newspaper Article] — Western Star and Roma Advertiser — 22 May 1875

NIYE RIVER. fFROat OUB OWN CORRESPONDENT. 1 And now for my quantihm to the rising Star. In the first place, I beg to prove to you that we are not quite so wicked as our Roma neighbours imagine by informing them that we have had our floods, which they prophesied we were not going to have in consequence of our iniquities. The rairi commenced falling to a very fair tune on the 17th April, and came down to the same notes for twenty-four hours without intermis sion. It then cleared off, and there was every appearance of a clearing-up for twelve hours, when it came over black again rather suddenly, and the rain, falling very gradually until it got to its regular style of going, gave us the full benefit of it for seven days almost incessantly. The Warrego and Hive Rivers commenced rising very fast after the first twenty-four hours' rain, until the water nearly reached the top of the banks. They then, through some cause or other (for it was raining very heavily), began to fall, and continue...

CHARLEVILLE. [from a correspondent.] 7000 sheep, tlie property of Mr. Allen, Wyanbah, St. George, have been travelling for grass and water, and are now oil the road home. They have been stuck up for a week at the cross ing of the Ward Ilivur, sixteen miles from Ghar leville; and after luavi'ig swam the sheep and horses, pulled the dray across the river with a rope, and taken the men and goods across in a tank, tl^ey were again stuck up at the Warrego, but have now left it, and are travelling home wards. They are in charge of Mr. Rabbin. There aptr'aiso 7000 fat wethers travelling for the Melbourne market. They are the property of Messrs. »Roine Bros., Northampton Downs, Bareoo River. Work is plentiful, but labour of the right sort is very scarce in the district. Several of the ■ surrounding squatters are in want of men, and Gowrie stat on is in want of teams for drawing j timber, and cannot get them at present. The weather is windy and cloudy.

RAILWAYS. (From the Telegraph.) [Newspaper Article] — Western Star and Roma Advertiser — 22 May 1875

RAILWAYS. (From the Telegraph,) While the air is heavy with raiWay schemes, it may prove profitable to enquire how our present ventures in that line Lave fared. The Treasurer in his financial state ment to the House announced an increase of £12,000 railway receipts for the year, coupled with, an actual, though small, derease in the working expenses. This, in itself, looks promising. Unfortunately, neither the state ment, nor the tables referred to in it, give the cost of the Government lines—consequently we are unable to see how much additional in-, terest the country should be debited with for the additional mileage open. Still the fact remains that with an additional thirty-two miles of line opened since the previous year, the expenses have been more - than propor tionately diminished. By reference to the tables, however, it will be found that this comparatively, satisfactory state of things— at anyrate as far as the increase of traffic is concerned—refers entirely to the Southern...

The 'late rain3 have given a splendid appear- ; anee to the country ; and, as the grass will have time to spring prior to the frost setting in, the prospects of the squatters are bright indeed ; nor are the self-congratulations of our squatters unfounded as to the richness of our country, for : tens of thousands of sheep and thousands of cattle are weakly pouring tlirough Tambo to wards some rich western country .where, like the red men of old, they may pitch their tents ! and cry "Alabama" (here is rest).

Roche, Spiro, Skeltoo, and Laaidey, Josepli Josephine, 011 bail, remanded from Tambo, was charged by Levien Isaac, with obtaining money under false pretences. Josephson and Isaac had been part ners hawking; had taken a cheque for £17 odd which was sent to the bank for collection and was dishonoured. Meanwhile the partnership was dissolved, and Josej^h^B-^eJ^jouglit ofit, he signii^3_nia»ortnitRljntothat effect. Aftei -srsTils payment of the cheque was recovered by law, through Mr. C. E.

THE MOONEE. [FKOM OUR OWN OOtRBESPONDENT. ] The great topic of conversation about here, besides the St. George races, is the burglary that was committed at ICooroou station, and, as I see nothing of it in the Star, I venture to send you' a summary of it. On the night of the 24th of April the Kooroon store was broken. into, and property to the amount of nearly £60 carried off. Amongst the things missing are five new saddles, girths, stirrup-leathers, boots, pants, tobacco, &c. The property has not been found, and no one has yet been arrested for the robbery. We have lots of grass and water all over the district. I post this at Canmaroo, which, in a direct line, is 100 miles from Roma; and, as your paper takes ten days to come to me, I am rather curious to know when you will get my communi cation. May 8.

SURAT. [FROM AN OCCASIONAL CORRESPONDENT.] [Newspaper Article] — Western Star and Roma Advertiser — 22 May 1875

SURAT. [from aw occasional coe,rbsponde>-t. ] On Friday, the 14th instant, a meeting of members of the Church of England was held in. the Gourt-house for the purpose of receiving and passing accounts for the past year. The ac counts showed that for the building and stipend fund in connection with the Roma church the sum of £70 had been received. The accounts being passed, tlie former committee were re elected. . A conversation then followed as to the desirability of establishing a Sunday-school and erecting a church. A Sunday-school will be commenced on books being received from Roma, and little doubt was expressed as to the building of a church at an estimated cost of about £200. During the past twelve months the appearance of the township has considerably altered for the better. Every month new buildings are going up. The school, a remarltably nice building, has been greatly improved by the fencing-in of two acres of ground with a close fence. The at tendance is large, and gene...
