COMMERCIAL. Western Star Office. Friday Evening. [Newspaper Article] — Western Star and Roma Advertiser — 11 September 1875

COMMERCIAL. Western Star Office. Friday Evening;. Business stows an improvement. Shearing opera tions having commenced on several stations in the district, the demand for supplies is .greater than has been the case for several months. Owing to the high rates 'of carriage at which goods have been, and are stiil, forwarded from Dalby, however, prices for heavy goods have to be sustained at last quotations. There is no apparent sign of carriage being as low again as it has been for some time to come, Part of the Amby Downs clip is expected at Messrs. Lewin and Co.'s wool stores in the course of a few days; drays are already engaged and wait ing for it. During the week ibont six tons of general produce —consisting of sbeepskius, greasy wool, and hides —have been transmitted to Dalby at the. rate of 5s. per 10!)lbs., at which price it is anticipated to get wool away during the present season. General supplies are not as yet to be had in any great quantities, and there is a particular sca...

THE BURMESE DIFFICULTY. (From the London Correspondent of the Melbourne Argus.) [Newspaper Article] — Western Star and Roma Advertiser — 18 September 1875

THE BURMESE DIFFICULTY. (From the London Correspondent of the Mel bourne Argtts.) We view with some uneasiness the possi bility of another war with Burmah, dreading more the extent of territory which annexa tion would involve than any other issue. Sir Douglas Forsyth has returned to Calcutta for further instructions. It now appears that he did not go so far as to demand a right of passage for British troops through Burmah, but only to intimate that a sufficient escort would be sent with any future expedi tion to "Western China. The king replied that the Burmese authorities would protect any expedition, and that British troops should not be sent. Meanwhile, he has received with all but royal honours the Chinese general Leesetah, who assaulted Major Sladen's expe dition in. 1868, and is thought now to be re sponsible for the murder of Mr. Maigarey. It is not surprising that the king should view with suspicion the attempt to open up a trade with Western China if supported by any milita...

THE UCHATIUS CANNON. (From Hie London Standard's Correspondent.) Vienna, July 7. [Newspaper Article] — Western Star and Roma Advertiser — 18 September 1875

THE TTCHATIUS CANNON. (From Hie London Standard's Correspondent.) Vienna, July 7. Herr Krupp really intends to institute legal proceedings against the Austrian War Admini stration on account of tlieir adoption of the Uchatius cannon, but the bare announcement of his intention has led to unpleasant consequences for the " Cannon King." Not only has it been proved, that the construction of th» steel-bronze guns is essentially different from that of the 8.7 cm. cast-steel cannon, which latter were made after the drawings of Austrian officers, but it has also been proved that Herr Krupp has, without scruple, appropriated the inventions of Sir Wil liam Armstrong and Mr. Broadwell, while the Austrian Government bought JUav -Broadweffis patent for a large sum; it has been shown, too, that Herr Krupp is now only the^nominal pro prietor of the works in Essen, "and that the Prussian "Seehandlung," or in other words, the Prussian Government, is the virtual owner. Accordingly it is. the Prussian...

SPORTING NOTES FROM HOME. London, June 28. [Newspaper Article] — Western Star and Roma Advertiser — 18 September 1875

SPORTING NOTES FROM HOME. (By " Rugby" in the Australasian ) London June 28. | The last portion of my letter, which, was wired from Ascot to London, in order to catch the mail, contained the intelligence of the Bale of Doncaster by Mr- Merry to his trainer, Robert Peck, for the immense sum of £10,000. Many people were of opinion that Peck was a very bold man to give such a figure for an untried sire; but more recent events have proved that he knew very well what he was about, and what was the market value of the horse, for a very few days later he was offered a couple of thou sands for Ms bargin, which he refused, and a negotiation from the Cobham Stud Company to lease the horse for three years for something very little under £8000 having also fallen through, we are now startled with the intelligence that the Duke of Westminster has actually become the owner of Doncaster in exchange for a cheque for £15,000—a sum hitherto unheard of as being given for a single horse, although it is ...

INCENDIARISM IN AMERICA. [Newspaper Article] — Western Star and Roma Advertiser — 18 September 1875

INCENDIARISM IN AMERICA. Nearly every State in the Union (says the Jfevo Ydrk Times} has Buffered more or less from incendiarism daring the present year. In Penn sylvania a large amount of property has been -destroyed because of the bitterness and hate ■engendered lay file struggle between the nynera •and their employers. The first efforts at revenge resulted in serious damage to the shaft frame of -the Mammoth Vein Goal and Iron Company. Then the fire at the East Norwegian shaft was nearly attended with a terrible loss of life, portions of the powder , and nitro-glycerine •stored there for mining purposes were ignited -while a number of workmen were down in the shaft, but discovery so soon followed that there was time to get clear before the explosion oc curred. The houses of persons not in the re-, rmotest way connected with the strike, in sheer wantonness, have been reduced to ashes. In -the farming districts of Long Island some resi -dents have been pursued for several years by ...
