CHARLEVILLE. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] [Newspaper Article] — Western Star and Roma Advertiser — 29 May 1875

CHARLEVILLE. [from our own correspondent.] Except that a woman was placed in the lockup as a lunatic, we have had nothing doing since the Smearden v. Cunningham case for rape. The whole is a very disreputable affair, but highly characteristic of bush life. I deeply re gret the various Burenda tragedies have culmi nated in the suicide of poor Collins. "Now that he is no more, I say from my heart Requiescat in pace.   The weather is exceedingly cool and pleasant; there is abundance of water everywhere, and the grass is still growing slowly. We have occasionally in few travellers. One   man from the Barcoo told me yesterday that there were "swarms" of men in that part look   ing for employment, but there was little work going on.   Trade is dull. Tea, flour, and soap are scarce. I hear nothing of any winter races; in fact, as far as sport is concerned—drinking excepted, if that be sport—I may write " Ichabod : the glory has departed."...

| ROMA, SATURDAY, JUNE 5, 1875. When Ave look at the estimates for the year ending June, 1876, "we find £>21,332 set down for tlie administration of justice—a surii in excess of the expenditure of any pre vious year—not to speak of the wholesale fee{ which will fall into the pockets of the Cr(wn law officers, supposing tliat the course of Jitigatiou which seems running on is to be persevered in. We have, moreover, three judges to do the Supreme Court business of the south-western and central districts of the colony, and we really see very little increase,_ if any, Tntlie legal work to which Before time two were found adequate. It seems to us that we are not only paying a great deal too much for our whistle, but that this portion of the country does not get a single pipe out of it.
