COMMERCIAL. Western Star Office. Friday Evening. Business lias been decidedly brisker daring the past -week. Several parcels of flour and general station supplies have been quitted at the foil rates of the previous week. Drays are now flocking in gradually, and supplies of every description are getting more plentiful. There is, however, a scarcity of Horn-; and, as the roads near Dalby and almost on to Condamine are impassible, no fresh supplies can be anticipated for-at least six weeks Carriage has an upward tendency. . There is no produce for transmission below. Mr. E. Bellgeove reports I have to report the sale of 10 head of horses, but the greater proportion of them not being in good condition they did ' not average more than £7 per head. 10,000 sheep, in charge of Mr. Terrett, from Port Curtis, travelling to New South Wales, passed Roma to-day.

DALBY. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] June 2. [Newspaper Article] — Western Star and Roma Advertiser — 12 June 1875

DALBY. [from ottr own cqeeesponbent.] June 2. That the Queen s Birthday sports, as affording a day of pleasure, were a success is certain, and the prognostications of "your own" that they would also prove a success pecuniarily is now an established fact. Over £100 were realised; and, when all expenses and claims were paid, there remained nearly £30 to the credit of the socie ties. I see that Mr. Miles is president of the Caledonian Society. I have heard it is proposed to hold similar sports in six months' time, which in my opinion and that of many'oiliers would be a mistake; and I wish to record that opinion, so that the committees may not fall into that error, which would only be " too much' of a gorsi tiling," but if they make it an annual. afEilr it will doubtless continue to be a success.

DARLING DOWNS JOCKEY CLUB ANNUAL MEETING. FIRST DAY—THURSDAY, JUNE 3. [Newspaper Article] — Western Star and Roma Advertiser — 12 June 1875

DARLING DOWNS JOCKEY CLUB ANNUAL MEETING. Fikst Day—Thcjisbay, June 3. The annual meeting of the above club com menced oil Thursday last under the most promising circumstances. The ball opened soon after half-past 12 o'clock with the Maiden Plate, for which there were six starters, and public opinion, or rather popu j^i* favour, was divided between the fleet and likely-looking Lecturer and the young gentle man of high pedigree known as Master Lymie. The result proved that the abilities of Lecturer had not been over-estimated, but the honours of first position were well dis puted by Mr. Pierce's very handsome filly, Jeannettee. Master Lynne's performance was not in accordance with his appearance. From; a string of seven coloured in the card, only three faced the starter for the Grand Stand Plate, and the prlzn was placed to the credit of Wanderer, who appeared in magnificent condition. Nemo ran gamely, and made the race warm in the straight running, and Stumpy-bustled about pretty cl...

THE WESTERN PASTORAL ASSOCIA TION'S SHOW. On the 12th day of August next the Western Pastoral Association of Queensland will hold their third annual sliov. Tlie fiict, in 1873, was merely a preliminary one, but the show of 1874 was a decided success. The ex hibits of sheep and cattle were jjarticularly good ; also, saddlery, poultry, butter, vege tables, and flowers—the two latter especially, as many people were under the impression that our gardens could not produce the like. The show, of horses was not particularly good—a blood stallion from Mount Hutton. excepted ; but we expect better things this time, as a good many blood horses have been brought into the district since last year. We are not aware of any first class draught entires—very much required ; but we hope to see a little attention paid to them, as draught horses will always fetch a high price, and, as in a few years the railway extension will be carried beyond Roma, whoever has the best bred horses lit for use and the ...
