BRISBANE AFFAIRS. FBOM OUU SPECIAL CORRESPONDENT. November 28. Tour readers arc no doubt greatly interested in the meat shipment about to leave Sydney by the Strathleven ; I will therefore repeat for them the account 1 liave just heard of it from a gentleman who has been carefully inspect ing the shipment. He is a large wholesale butcher, and a stockbreeder, and therefore ought to be well qualified to judge. Regard* iug the succcsa of the process be is quite clear. Some meat which had been frozen for eight day*, and thawed for three-and the weather in Sydney was hot-was cooked, and my informant declares he never tasted beef in better cou&lt;iition for the table. The shipment will be a success unless the coxcfcasnesa ol the shipper? prevents it. And they seem to be displaying gross carelessness. The cattle are slaughtered in the Lithgow valley, and convcycd by train in ordinaiy vaus-not refrigerating cars-without much attention to clcnulincflH. Arrived iu Sydney the meat iB t...

©lie IStfsiciiit (^hatwpiow. l'ita titMI litcrit mort at. BLACKALL, SATUBDAY, DKC. 20. ' Oca telegraphic news from Ireland shows that the agitation in that country , among the tenant fanners is assuming all the appearance of a serious rebellion. Meetings, characterised by extreme tur 1 bulcncc and seditious speeches, have been held in various parts of the country, which have had the effect of exciting the populace, and increasing those symptoms of widespread disaffection, which it had been hoped the conciliate!? policy of late Governments had removed for ever. We know that it has been the aim of both houses in the British Parliament to legislate for Ireland with the chief end in view of cemcnting more firmly the common interests of the whole king dom, and to achicvc this purpose, Mr. GLADSTONE brought about the disestab lishment of the Church of Ireland, while later on Lord BEACONBFIEU) succeeded in passing his Catholic University Bill.

Western News. Emu's CHEEK AND TUB JU'LMGAK. Evhe'6 Creek is a continuation of the Herbert River and is 60 called after llic juuetion of the latter villi the Mulligan. Then after a course of about 80 miles iu Queeusliiud it runs into South Australia, where it is joined by the Diamantiua, when it if) called the Salt Creek. Eyre's Creek consequently drains the whole of the southern watershed of Queenslaud that lies west of the Diamantina. I hare cooiwcnccd with the above gcogriphical remarks as I find many of oven the residents of the above rivers arc quite ig norant as to their coursc. All this far Western country is now looking splendid, grass and water everywhere. The Herbert aud Mulligan have been running strong for the lost eix months; yet such is the flat nature of the country that neither river has yet reached Eyre's Creek, which however seems to have got on very well without the as sistance of ilH tributaries* all the water-holes having been filled by the local rains.
