STRAT. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] [Newspaper Article] — Western Star and Roma Advertiser — 24 July 1875

STJRAT. [from: oob own correspondent. ] ■Since the races dulness has been rampant at fiurat, and the business people appear, to have easy times of it. Reminiscences of the races will iiot be pleasant to all; the proprietors of the travelling theatre having been robbed at their encampment on the north side of the river of about £50, probably by brother Bohemians. Iain sony to see from your report that our river is so uL-conditidned as to have a rocky bed, but hope this difficulty will not prevent the bridge beingproceeded wi th at once. The traffic northward from Suratis at times very great, and the Government cannot surely be aware that all this traffic, together with the mall service, would be entirely stopped, except in droughts, "were it not ior private juntas which are placed gratuit ously at the service of the public. /■ The " lane" this side of IMby, through which everything and everybody going to the west usually passes, is, I hear, impassable: the mud ■ is too thick to Bwim ...

CHARLEVILLE. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT. [Newspaper Article] — Western Star and Roma Advertiser — 24 July 1875

CHABLEVILLE. {FBOM OUR OW2T CORRESPONDENT. At last! After a lengthy period of anxious waiting, wishing, and hoping, the teams, loaded with, all kinds of goods necessary and for the consumption of the good people of Charleville and others, have just put in an appearance. Rations &c. were beginning to run just a leetel too short to be pleasant, but owing to the strenuous exertions made by our storekeeper, who by his business-like habits, did manage to keep the good folks supplied, no absolute want was experienced, for which no doubt they are thankful. The roads from Dalby to this town must have been in a frightful state for travel ling, the teams above-mentioned having been four months doing the trip. Talking about roads, I feel like being switched on to another track "a railway track," for instance, a railway from Dalby to Roma and from thence onwards to the "far west" and still onwards, would be one of the greatest blessings a kind Government could bestow on us. It would ass...

In Brisbane, where the distemper assumed a virulent form, the schools were closed : a pre cautionary measure that need not be applied to the Dalby schools.

SOMA, SATURDAY, JULY 24, 1875. The question of education, taken from a pa.t.innfll point of view, forms a comprehen sive subject of the greatest importance to the future well-being of these colonies, and legis lation in this direction should be approached in a spirit entirely free from party antagon isms, and not made use of as the vehicle for an ebullition of political ill-feeling.

THE EUROPEAN SITUATION. [Newspaper Article] — Western Star and Roma Advertiser — 24 July 1875

THE EUROPEAN SITUATION. The Spectator, speaking of the aspect of Eu rope, says:— " All classes, except" the great military officers, are ill at ease. The statesmen fear tliat too much rests upon Bismark's single life. The pro fessors and the people fear that Germany may yet- be attacked by a coalition, and support measures under which liberty of discussion seems coming to an end, a criticism on Prince Bism ark is treated .as a heinous crime, and even members of Parliament are punished for delivering their advice. All classes but the Junkers are oppressed by the iron rigidity with which military service is demanded, and all, Junkers more especially, suffer under that rise in prices consequent on the spoliation of poor France, which has made a people, always poor, feel, while apparently en riched, as if it had suddenly become pauperised. A thinly-veiled religious war is raging in half the provinces of the empire. Thirteen millions— one-third of the people—are mortified by attacks upon...

In reply to Mr. Bailey, Mr. MacaJister .stated that certain facilities would be granted to foreign immigrants paying their passage to London.

GOOD TEMPLARISM. (From the Courier.) [Newspaper Article] — Western Star and Roma Advertiser — 24 July 1875

I ■ I GOOD TEMPLA11ISM. (From the Courier.) If numbers could give influence, and organ isation give that influence weight, the total abstinence societies ought to be a power in. Queensland. Their members are legion; their lodges ramnify the country; and their discipline is secured by . a system of elective ranks. The, evils they band themselves together to repress are notorious, and any practical efforts to secure.' their alleviation would command the cordial j support of an immense majority of those of; the * public who refrain from enlisting themselves as declared devotees of the total abstinence cause. Yet, in spite of numbers, organisation, and j these favouring influences, the associations, ; when judged by results, are almost a failure. Although their numbers may yearly receive accession, and new lodges be opened, their effect on the prevalence of drinking to excess has never yet made itself felt. For every new lodge which is inaugurated half-a-dozen fresh public houses are op...

INOCULATION FOR PLEUROPNEU MONIA IN EUROPE. Mr. W. G.

The fluid is received in a saucer or bowl, ajid al lowed to stand ,a few minutes, in order to allow the! solid particles to subside.

A DAY'S RAMBLE ABOUT BLYTHDALE. [Newspaper Article] — Western Star and Roma Advertiser — 31 July 1875

A DAY'S RAMBLE ABOUT BLYTHDALE. [By AjoolphdsPlantagenet Loafer.] This station, distant twelve miles from Roma, of which. Messrs. Wienholt Bros, are the lessees, has been for the past eight years under the man agement of Richard Pope, Esq. There are at present about .50,000 sheep depasturing on the ran ; the whole of the flocks are under the care of shepherds, the paddock system not having been adopted, the country not being suitable for that mode of sheep-farming. Of cattle there are very few, "and these are chiefly milking cows and their increase... I understand there was a herd formerly, but they have all been disposed of. About twenty-five shepherds are employed here, besides other hands for station and bush work. The run is well watered and grassed, and has frontages at various points on Bligh's, Bimgil, Bungeworgorai, and other creeks. On Bligh's Greek are. the greater number of the sheep sta tions, extending twenty-one miles up and fifteen down the frontage. "Die head station...

THE RAILWAY RESERVES. To the Editor of the Western Star. [Newspaper Article] — Western Star and Roma Advertiser — 31 July 1875

THE RAILWAY RESERVES. To the Eiitor of the Western Star.. - Sni,—It appears to me to be a fine thing to get a railway to Roma, but amidst the general congratulations nobody seems to think or care about the position of the unfortunate squatters -who happen to be within the railway reserve. That is a: beautiful amendment of Sir. Bu chanan's which has been carried in the Legisla tive Council,, to the effect that the lessees who are affected are to have a. pre-emptive right to purchase the land. I wonder where does he think they would raise the money to purchase it ? He should be aware that they have already a pre-emptive right to purchase 2560 acres on each run ; but, so far from being grateful for the privilege, I doubt if there be.one between Dalby and Roma who has taken advantage of it, and now they are coolly informed that this pre emptive right is to be extended as a compensa tion lor being " worried out of their holdings," as Sir. Walsh graphically expressed it. Mr. Gregory's pro...
