PARLIAMENT. . f From the Courier.) Tuesday, June 15. Mr. Hemmant movedthe second reading of a ; bill- to grant a, representative . to. the town" of. Cooktown. He did so in consequence, of. the temporary indisposition of Mc Macalister, and very briefly, remarked that the bill was brought forward in vindication of the principle that there should be no taxation without representa tion. The bill-passed a second reading without debate. Mr. King then moved the second reading, of a bill to provide for the drainage and sewerage of 'Brisbane. There' -were no complete plans in existence which^wnnld; justify the bringing forward of a thoMngh'^system joif sewerage. This was chiefly a bill to jnakea drain to carry off the surplus surface water. He produced plans showing the portions of land it. was proposed to sell, the proceeds to bedevoted to the construction of a main drain..

Witzim B.OMA, SATURDAY, JUJfE_26,.. 1875. At length we may be able to congratulate our readers on the almost certainty of a line to Soma ; and a line well laid out and based, so far, upon a sound principle in the provision for its construction. The plans, specifications, and estimates are to be laid before Parliament within a very short time, and we have every reason to believe that the railway itself will be commenced within a few weeks. If the system recommended by Mr. Thornloe Smith is carried out and proves successful, we see. no reason to doubt that the worts may be completed in about a couple of years: There seems. :some difficulty in the way of cbmihencing at the- Roma end simultaneously: with the Dalby one, but that may perhaps be overpome ; and it would certainly be desir able tb.at"rfc -eUauld-be-so, i£_ecoji£raiicai con siderations did not stand in the way.

CHINESE AT COOKTOWN. A correspondent of the S. M. Herald, under date of the 2nd instant, writes of the Gelestials p — They are very good customers juet now to the business men, but there is one decided drawback to the advantages of their trade, and that is,' that if one man wants a tin dish or a shovel, -or -a board to make a cradle, ■ or even a pound of rice, he has ^ al ways at least twenty friends who accompany him to inspect and approve.of the purchase.. -If -there are fifty things in the shop or store of precisely the same description, John and his consulting 'Counsel are not satisfied till they bave examined minutely each individual specimen and had a^obd hour's talk over it, and then comes the payment, and after a considerable deal of haggling the money is paid. " The best way to deal with thesa," remarked a storekeeper "the other day, " is just to ask doable what yon mean to take; they generally then offer about half, and then take it. I always do, and it's quite astonishing...

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of the Western Star. [Newspaper Article] — Western Star and Roma Advertiser — 26 June 1875

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. To ike Editor of the Western Star. Sib,—A week or two ago a letter appeared in your columns signed "Oorin." Subject: The benefits to be derived morally and socially by bushmen and shepherds from "the establishment of a " bushman's home" in Roma. I am ashamed to confess my ignorance of the working of such an institution, but if it be, as I believe, a place where men from the bush can 3 >e accommodated at a moderate charge, and where intoxicating drinksare prohibited, Roma,, the central depot of a large and important district, ought to be.of all others the spot for such. a. " home." Mr.. Warner was good enough to reply to one part of " Gorin's" letter. He (Mr. W.) may also be able to afford us some information about the "bushman's home" in Adelaide ; and, if such an establishment is possible here (why-shouldn't itbe), all hands, l am certain, willgladly subscribe. In his remarks " Corin" mentions that there is no reading-room and library. He is perfectly co...

SPORTING ITEMS. [Newspaper Article] — Western Star and Roma Advertiser — 26 June 1875

SPORTING ITEMS. Verily we Romans are a sport-loving community,. in a position at present to boast of having two Turf Clubs and an Athletic Club, which is more than can be said by any other town in the colony, al though the populatkps of several of them may be fifteen or twenty times greater. The late meeting of the Maranoa Turf Club, whatever it may-have been in a financial point of view, and 1 have no reason to believe it was aught but successful, was certainly a very pleasant gathering, and were it not for the paucity of entries might nave been as suc cessf ula meeting in a sporting sense as could be wished. If there was a failing at all in the management of the programme it leaned to virtues side, for the stewards in their endeavours to please all classes were no doubt too indulgent, and it certainly would have been a more suitable acknowledgement of their generosity if those persons, who should have known better, had not imposed on good nature in several instances by almost defy...
