THE COLONIAL TREASURER'S ADDRESS TO THE ELECTORS OF THE MURKUJIBIDGEE. My promise of an early visit to your district is about to be fulfilled in a manner and under cir cumstances different from what were anticipated when you lately did me an extraordinary honour in electing me as your representative. With great reluctance, and after considerable hesitation, arising out of a growing aversion aud sense of my own comparative unfitness for public life, and particularly for office, I have consented to join Mr. Robertson in forming an Administration, con sequent upon the resignation of Mr. Parkes and his colleagues. I consented upon grounds appa rently satisfactory to others, but by which I am not myself fully convinced of an alleged neces sity for my co-operation. But the necessity once assumed, my duty becomes clear ; and, of course, after having accepted office, I shall endeavour to serve your interests and those of the public generally to the best of my ability. In seeking re-election...

The extract from the address of Mr. John Robertson, which we publish in another column, will sufficiently explain to our read ers the programme of the new Ministry. The country will be disposed to make some allow ance for the difficult position in which the Governor has taken care to place them. In defence of his rudely assailed dignity, his Excellency advisedly, requested Sir William Manning to form a Government — an object which that gentleman pursued with all the chivalrous zeal of Don Quixote, and with equal disregard to its ultimate results. The maxim that 'the King can do no wrong-' ie a modern invention ; it dates from the time when English Monarchs became gorgeous cyphers in the political machine, and were bound to be guided by the advice of responsible Ministers. The prerogative of the Crown is a trust ; and the abuse of that prerogative, whether by King or delegate, is and must be open to discussion and censure, unless the liberties of the people are to be extinguished, an...

AGRICULTURAL STATISTICS. [Newspaper Article] — The Burrowa News — 20 February 1875
AGRICULTURAL STATISTICS. The present year found us in a state of drought. Where the feed was good there was no water, and generally in the pastoral districts both feed and water were fast disappearing under a blazing sun, and a gloomy apprehension prevailed that we were in for a bad time. Some squatters had begun a nomadic life with their Btock, and many more were preparing to do bo. Since that period to the 1st of February, instead of the 4£ inches of rain we are usually treated to in this period. land received very little more than 1 inch, and that was in the neighbourhood of Sydney. Throughout the country generally there was not enough rainfall to satiate a grasshopper's tongue. At the opening of the current month things were in a serious state : the heat greater, and the water less. Happily the change came. The south wind blew up supplies, which fell copiously and generally, for some seventy hours, more or less ; and the Btrength of the country is conse quently renewed. Between ...
