ILFRACOMIiE ITEMS. I A CORRESPONDENT writes on April 8tll: Perhaps one of the most enjoyable events that has yet taken place in our rising little town | came off on Sunday last, the occasion being a I picnic given to the children, which, taken into consideration, are very numerous here. The site chosen was Wellshot outstation, namely, the Gin, which is a distance of five miles from town. About 3 p.m. the party, which con sisted of four buggy-loads of the townspeople and children, ana about twenty horsemen left town, and on arriving at the station were very heartily received by the contractor, Mr. Simpson. I was greatly astonished at the appearance of the shed. It is a splendid structure, aud when completed will, 1 am sure, eclipse anything in the surrounding districts. The shed took the eye of the ladies so muck that they suggested to have a fly around on the light fantastic toe, which they had to the splendid music of Mr. Herbert England, ably assisted by Mr. M.

Ryan, M.L.A., on the 7th inst.: -"Newspapers and opponents misconstruing speech kanaka question. They say I promised procure members Western unemployed work for twelve shillings (18s.) a-week.

Be would support the amend ment, as he had been returned to the House against the measure, and also because it meant reduced wages in the country.

ISISFOKD ITEMS. Ouit correspondent writing on April 7th says:-Tlic town is livelier tliis week than it has been for eome time1 past, ami, as a general consequence we have our lock-up full; there is no inducement offered to the police hero to make arrests, as the cells are so badly arranged as to be brought under the same roof as the Sergeant's quarters, and the small children are submitted to whatever blasphemy the prisoners choose to make use of. Surely "in a town like ours, with so many people-of all tribes and conditions-passing through, it is high time such objections were altered. -Several persons here are making energetic efforts to have our now isolated town brought under the protection of some Divisional Hoard. What is the object to be attained I know not, but this I know that with a Board office at least eighty miles away we cannot expect to be notified, except when rates arc; payable. Our town is now in quite as good order as some I have seen under the careful eye of the D...

Atclieson, of the A. L. F. Store, has just completed new and much larger premises than those in which he has hitherto carried on business. The new store adds considerably to the attractiveness of the town, and goes some way towards reject- i ing the idea that Muttaburra is being surely and rapidly absorbed by that modern Chicago of the West, Longreach.-The selectors in the vicinity of t'aiuoola have held a meeting, ;? id decided upon having a day's racing on J y 20th.
