TAMBO. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] [Newspaper Article] — Western Star and Roma Advertiser — 25 September 1875

- TAMBO. ;; [feom otte own correspondent.] ; Oar Township has this week been the scene of a very painful and sorrowful suicide. Mrs. Ah Fat, the wife of a Chinese gardener resident here, had in anjicautious moment made some reflections upon a conple of her sisterhood, which coming to their ears, they (as daughters of Eve areproneto do) consi dered it their incnmbent duty to make the unfortn fiate woman "prove her words." A meeting of these ladies took place, and Mrs. Ah Fat left the house in a state of hysterical excitement, and upon ar riving at her own, house, poisoned herself with strychnine, and was dead within two hoars. The j most pitiful part of the business is, there is a babe i of nine months, and three other little ones. How! the poor motherless things are to be looked after, is difficult to say, for if some charitable woman were inclined to shelter and provide for the little ones, owing to the of her own heart, the fear of ;»ifl the diriiy remarks -of ®vil minded people a...

THE EMIGRANT SHIP STAR QUEEN. From the Telegraph. [Newspaper Article] — Western Star and Roma Advertiser — 25 September 1875

THE EMIGRANT SHIP STAB QUEEN. From the Telegraph. It is impossible to read the evidence taken, yesterday at the enquiry on board the Star Queen ■without a strong feeling of indignation. Wehaveno desireto prejudgeanyone, and have no means of fixing the blame on the right ■ shoulders if inclined to attempt the task. But' there can be no manner of doubt that upwards of three hundred persons, our own flesh and blood, were cooped up in that ship for nearly four months, the greater portion of which time! they were kept in a more or less starving con- 1 dition. The purser's written testimony, which was corroborated by the Surgeon-superintend ent and the matron, and abundantly confirmed by the appearance ot the immigrants them selves, was to the effect that from the very first he (the purser) had been obliged to cheat these poor helpless people of their fair and legal weight of victuals in order to make the ; provisions spin out as long as they did ; and after all, the ship had to put into ...

ODDS AND ENDS. [Newspaper Article] — Western Star and Roma Advertiser — 25 September 1875

ODDS AND ENDS. BT OPPOSSUM. My long silence lately may be attributable partly to tlie fear and trembling I have been in expecting havoc and desolation from the raid of the railway surveyors, and partly owing to. the space devoted by you to fighting matter, arising from one cause or another, but more particularly by some bellicose indi viduals over an old used up rain. Good ad vertisements would have paid you better, and returned you more of the needful than would have purchased half-a-dozen such champions. I dont wish to re-open old sores but the late £50 challenge, which must be miliar to most of your readers, leads me to suggest the best means of settling the disputed judgement of the blood horses. Let the owners of blood horses in the Maranoa enter for a Sires Pro duce Stakes to be run in 1879 say £20 each. There are the two horses lately exhibited ; a splendid animal lately taken to Mount Abundance ; and another at Mount Hutton. There may be others, but at any rate let the two-y...

SURAT. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] [Newspaper Article] — Western Star and Roma Advertiser — 25 September 1875

SUJRAT. [from our own correspondent. 1 Beyond the sinking of the trial shaft, nothing has yet been done towards the erection of our bridge. Surely the Government are not going still further to humbug us in the matter. When the rail to'Roma is completed all the St. George traffic will pass through Surat, much to the dis gust of the dwellers in that aspiring township, and the Moonie road -will get covered with as much grass as usually grows in that delectable locality. " - I noticed that the freelance Miles opposed the grant for our bridge, sayiiig that a similar one to that of Condamine would suffice. Uow, William knows well that with the experience we have had of the efficacy of that unfortunate bridge that no Government and no engineer out of Woogaroo could the one build or the other recommend a similar structure to be built at Condamine were that swept away. It is too bad of Williain : toenever reieefced him. In accounts of floods at tlie north some time since I noticed that small...

A GRASSHOPPER EXTERMINATOR. (From the South Australian Register, Sept. 4.) [Newspaper Article] — Western Star and Roma Advertiser — 2 October 1875

A GRASSHOPPER EXTERMINATOR. j (From the South Australian Register, Sept. 4.) | The increase of grasshoppers of late years in countries where formerly they were compartiavely scarce is becoming a very serious matter for agriculturists. In South Australia they have more than once assumed the proportions of a plague, and there is the uneasy consciousness that any season they may appear in even larger numbers t.Vinn before, and inflict dire disaster upon the colony by eating off the crops and every green thing. The terrible destruction they have com mitted over several States -of America this year is a painful reminder of the harm which under favouring circumstances they may do here, and should suggest the desirability of adopting every possible precaution to keep the countay free from -seek :a-scourge. Various methods of waging war against the insect pests have been suggested, among which may -be mentioned collecting and destroying the larvae and young of the grass hoppers, digging pit...
