The Western Champion. Vita sine literis mors est. BLACKALL, SATURDAY, AUGUST 23. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion — 23 August 1879
The Western Champion. Vita ahm fitrri* worn rut. BLACKALL, SATURDAY, AUGUST 23. THE Assembly has reduced the vole for Volunteers to £7000. It is a pity they did not wipe out the item altogether from the Estimate. The country derives no benefit from the force, and is not likely to require their assistance. The idea of an invasion of Queensland by a foreign army is an idea too ludi- crous for serious discussion. If any nation goes to war with England, that nation will require all its ironclads to protect its own ports. Should such an event occur there is not much fear of any foreign war-vessels being sent to these coasts. It is possible a few priva- teers might think it worth their while to cruise in Australian waters for the pur- pose of picking up a stray prize or two ; but the British squadron on this station is quite sufficient to look after marauders &nbsp; and protect our commerce. As far as we can understand, the Volunteers would only be needed to repel the advance of s...

Eight head were drowned at the crossing of Cooper's Creek, by the untimely interference of a traveller, who was crossing in the opposite direction and &nbsp; caused the cattle to ring. A subscription was made for the purpose of &nbsp; sinking a well for the benefit of the public &nbsp; Two men took the job, but abandoned it 0n account of coming lo rock at about 6 feet. On the 23rd we had very heavy rain which lasted for a day and night almost without a break. 3in. of rain was said to have fallen in the time. I am sorry to have to tell that Messrs. Hamilton and Co. suffered a loss by it, on account of their new ntore not being roofed in. The rain beat so heavy against the mud walls that they fell, ami had to be abandoned. They have now started an iron building. Every one (with the excepti...

The Late Debate. MB. MACBOSSAJI'S 11 AIL WAY POLICT. Dcuing the progress of tlic recent debate on Mr. Griffith's want of confldcncc motion Mr. Maeros&m said: lCvcry tnile we make westward-and I am not prepared to Bay lb at the same will not happen to Jjrnncli lines-will not only pay more than the interest upon itB cost of con-: HtrucLion, but will tend to rcthicc the interest , we are paying on the more cosily lines til- j ready built. Wc arc continually being told that these liucs are to be run out westward solely for the benefit of tbc pastoral lessees. The pa«ioral lessees, like every other class of men in tlic couutry, pay their shore towards the general revenue of the colony.

Experiences in the Far West. (Continued from our last.) [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion — 30 August 1879
Experiences in the Far West. Br A TBAVELLKH. I (Continued from, our last.) WE could see a peculiarly formed chain ol mountains, ahead of US| assuming many grot esque shapes, pinnacles, sugar loaf, table mountains, ice. Tliis is n peculiar feature in ?the scenory of the Far West j the mountains, although not.ldfty when you come near them, are veiy picturesque, and being generally of a clay or reddish colour, when the sun shines on them they appear to advantage. I must not forget to mention that a mob of cattlc were ahead of us, proceeding to a station named Koxborough Downs, on the Herbert. They had two carts with them, consequently wc could often sec the two wheel-tracks they left behind, which was a great advantage; as we wore enabled io improve on their route by compass, courses, whereby we gained a .good many miles. Our leader now overtook us, and glad wo were to see him, bringinglettere, all the news he could glean, and also the ?late newspapers, which some of us industri ously ...

Griffith had given notice lliat he intended to move a 110 confi dence notion. The House was crowded with spectators, the ladies .coming out in groat force.; so much demand was there on space that the cadets of Hatuard were oustedfrom their usual sent at a tabic in the gallery, aod their placotaken by able-bodied females. It was a disappointment. The leader of the Opposition simply said.: We intend to follow out almost exactly the same policy, as re gards railway construction, but we consider ourselves personally better filled for office than these men. Everybody had expected that Sam would have.madc.rathcr.a masterly speech, as he has tho reputation of being cunning at fence, but when it came to a case of " Codlin'e the.friend, not Short," Uic con tusion was'lame and impotent.
