SHEEP RETURNS. (From the Courier.) [Newspaper Article] — Western Star and Roma Advertiser — 29 May 1875

sheep returns: (From the Cowrier.) The Report of tlie Chief Inspector of Stock for the past year is not a very encouraging review of results. "We are bouhd to take the bad "with the good, and, while -we have no right to grumble on the whole, it is of no use to deny that the vital statistics ^of our stock are not so satisfactory as tliey'Tifiglrtr'bc. There is a decrease in the total' number of sheep. The exact amount of this' decrease is stated, according to Mr. Gordon's upturns, to be 32,242. Last year there were - qiore than 7,000,000 of sheep in the colony, iand this year there are less than, that numbeV, Nor has there been any very large export to ac count for this. The total number of sheep exported lias been 418,291, and the home consumption has been estimated at what'-we should be disposed to consider a rather low figure—namely, 300,000. The increase for the year is estimated at 1,407,184 weaned lambs, but the gross decrease shows heavily at an estimate of 738,413. The natura...

The Western Star. ROMA, SATURDAY, MAY 29, 1875. [Newspaper Article] — Western Star and Roma Advertiser — 29 May 1875

®[r,c ®tstan ROMA, SATURDAY, MAY 29, 1875. It is not easy to understand why such fierce opposition should be fulminated by the North ern members against the Continental Railway scheme—not on account of the arbitrary policy disclosed in some of its clauses, but because it is supposed that it will take some portion of traffic from the northern ports. Were any of the lands which will be required to provide for its construction taken from the northern districts, we could understand their animosity; but seeing that it is simply the land revenue which the country through which the line passes will contribute that will be thus appropriated, we can only point out that the principle which has always beep, contended for by the North—of using local revenueforlocal requirements—is here strictly observed. It is, of course, open to our North ern colonists to get the application to them selves of the same principle. We are afraid tliat there is more of opposition for oppo sition's sake in the effo...

NEW GUINEA. (From the Australasian.) [Newspaper Article] — Western Star and Roma Advertiser — 29 May 1875

NEW GUINEA (From the Australaaian.) The annexation of New Guinea to the British Empire is a question wliich naturally excites the liveliest interest in Australia, owing to the geo graphical proximity of that magnificent laland* to this continent, and to political considerations which have no doubt impressed themselves quite asstrongly upon the minds of the Secre taries of State for the colonies and for foreign afiiiirs as upon those of the people of Queens land, New South Wales, and Victoria. Indeed, the Earl of Carnarvon's reply to the dentation" which recently waited uponhim in reference to this subject showed that the Imperisd Govern ment is by no means disinclined to take the step which is now being urged npon.it, but that it-is anxious before doing so to receive from these colonies such an explicit and Emphatic ex pression of opinion in favour of annexation as will enable it to justify its conduct inihe mat ier in the eyes of the world. In the absence of a Just and reasonable p...

THE ATHLETIC SPORTS. [Newspaper Article] — Western Star and Roma Advertiser — 29 May 1875

THE ATHLETIC SPORTS. The r,p ort-] o vin g community of Roma mustered "in great strength to witness the first athletic sports that have taken place in this town, seve ral hundreds of people being present on the ground last Monday. The course chosen was excellent, and the various requirements were well attended to by the gentlemen composing the committee. One booth was on the ground, under the supervision of Host Winieke, who must have done a good trade, judging from the numbers that visited him throi^hout the entire day. One solitary individual represented the gambling fraternity, but he did not make a fortune, as the incessant amusement caused by, the punctual despatch of the numerous events ; on the programme occupied the attention of the spectators to such an extent that no time was ; allowed him to edify those who may have been; simple enough to recognise or patronise Ms feats ; of legerdemain. The running in the various events, taken as a whole, was very good, and some fast " s...

TREAT AT THE PRIMARY SCHOOL. On Monday, the anniversary of the Queen's Birthday, a treat was given to the cliildren at tending the Primary School, under the auspices of Messrs. J- Saunders and F.

The children assem bled on the -school ground at 2 o'clock, soon after which Bports commenced, consisting of foot, sack, and three-legged races, interspersed ■with various other amusements, amongst which we must not neglect to mention an experiment on the youngsters with an electrical machine, and which created a fund of merriment. After about two hours' exercise, which was amply re paid in many cases by decent prizes, the " inner man" was replenished with a substantial iea—a meal which became not " beautifully" but wonderfully " less," which was not a surpris-1 ing circumstance, however, when we -consider; that many of the juveniles allowedamplemargin by coming minus their dinner.

ODDS AND ENDS. [Newspaper Article] — Western Star and Roma Advertiser — 29 May 1875

ODDS AIJD ENDS. [By Opossum.] Whatever am I to say to you on this damp miserable weather? Our roads are in a most deplorable state. Just look outside your own office, and contemplate Stringfellow's dam—not the one up the lull, which I hear is about to -burst, but the one opposite Cleeve's. I saw a man to-day trying to open a passage for the water with- a^Iong stick, on the side next the bank, contrajy to the natural ,inclination of the land, ..which ought to &Yj$Tfards the creek. Whether he succeeded ininakpg the water flow uphill, I did' aot*y^|^MM^'.r-but there is a considerable-accumulali^M|^attnid there at pre sent, with - a^^tehdenc^Br-OTerflow and create another artifiaal Idieln front of Lewin's. These artificial lakes cab scarcely improve the health of the town. There is no get-away for the ' water, and an accumulation of filth and dirt j gradually allowed to evaporate generates a miasma which causes measles, typhoid fever, and small-pox.
