COLONIAL AND INTERCOLONIAL. FROM OUR SPECIAL CORRESPONDENTS. ARAMAC. THURSDAY, Feb. 19. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion — 21 February 1880

COLONIAL AND INTERCOLONIAL. FROM OUR SPECIAL CORRESPONDENTS. ARAMAC. THURSDAY, Feb. 19. Residents here express great dissatis- faction at the Government allowing Kanakas to be engaged on inland sta- tions, and an indignation meeting will be held next week to afford the public an opportunity of giving expression to their opinions on the subject. [The proprietors of the Mail have also kindly sent us a telegram contain- ing similar information.] FBIDAY, Feb. 20,11.10 a.m. A terrific rainstorm occurred here last night. Four inches and a half of rain fell in two hours. There is a tremendous flood in the Aramac Creek, which is now four miles wide at the township, and ris- ing rapidly. Two kilns full of bricks just ready for burning, were washed away. Several loaded drays camped near the creek were surrounded by the water during the night, and narrowly escaped being washed away. This flood   is the heaviest known in Aramac.   Weather showery, and another downpour ...

STOCK AND STATION REPORT. BLACKALL, Friday, Feb. 20. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion — 21 February 1880

STOCK AND STATION REPORT. BLACKALL, Friday, Feb. 20. Local business, travelling, and stock move- ments have been hindered very much this week by the incessant rains. Aramac seems to have suffered considerably by the down- pour, which has not extended in such quan- tities in this direction. All the creeks and the river are bankers here, and the mails are everywhere delayed. The back track mail is camped at Malvern, and the Tambo mail has been lost in the bush near Northampton.

The Western Champion. Vita sine literis mors est. BLACKALL, SATURDAY, FEB. 21. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion — 21 February 1880

Vita sine literis more est. BLACKALL, SATURDAY, FEB. 21 Some of the remarks made in our lead- ing article of last issue mayappear to our readers at Aramac to be savoring of the leaven of jealousy, but we can honestly disclaim any such intention. We hope that the only rivalry among the western towns may be conducted in a friendly spirit, and in an honorable manner. It is only natural that per- sons possessing property either at Tambo, Isisford, Blackall, or Aramac, should desire to see that town progress in which their interests are more particu- larly centred ; and residents of either place will be readily pardoned for any little expression of superiority in which they may patriotically indulge. Still at the same time it is obvious that any persons, or institutions, or sections of the community are acting in a dishonor- able manner when they seek their own advancement at the expense of others. This, we conceive, the Aramac Mail has been attempting to do, and we hope therefore the op...

MELBOURNE. THURSDAY, Feb. 19. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion — 21 February 1880

MELBOURNE. THURSDAY, Feb. 19.   De Thouars, the half-caste, who was   convicted of sticking up the Holy Plains Station, has been sentenced to 15 years imprisonment. The subscriptions in aid of the Irish Famine Relief Fund have now reached a total of £19,000. The Government have abandoned the proposed conference on intercolonial railway communication and customs union, in consequence of the New South Wales and Queensland Governments having refused to send delegates. Twenty-five valuable coursing dogs, the property of Mr. Hart, have been destroyed by fire, which is supposed to have been the work of an incendiary. The extent of the loss is estimated at £2000. The following telegrams appeared in a second edition issued on Tuesday last:-- REUTER'S TELEGRAMS LONDON, February 13.

LOCAL AND GENERAL NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion — 21 February 1880

LOCAL AND GENERAL NEWS. INCIPIENT LARRIKINISM.-The congrega- tion of young men and boys who parade the streets of Blackall in imitation of the larri- kins of larger towns, and are now becoming rather a nuisance to quiet-going people, had better be careful how they conduct them- selves in future. Our late Police Magistrate, Mr. Compigné, was obliged to check the practical jokes of these hobbledehoys with the aid of a few constables, and effectually put a stop to the objectionable practice of tin-kettling, sign-board defacing, and other vagaries of a similar kind. Within the last few weeks complaints have been made which amount to this : that people living near the street are constantly annoyed by young fellows walking up and down, using blas- phemous and sometimes obscene language, both within hearing and in the presence of women and children. This abominable con- duct, we are informed, is more particularly observable on Sundays, and we understand that the police have now received in...

BILLIARDS. A HATCH between Willinm Abbott and Clios. GoMing, (or 1'5 aride (GOO up) took ploec at Abboll's Billiard Huom on Saturday after noon. There wen: n great many spectators present, who evinced much interest during ?lie proRiCKS of tho game. The match was very »*losely eoiilotci', both players being even when 250 was colled, and maintaining a similar portion until with'n the lost cen tury. Guiding then began to draw ahead, and when H7fi wan reached Abbott was about IB points behind. Taking advantage, how ever, of a good break he crept up to his opponent and with careful phiy won the game by nine points. The player*, it will be allowed, were very evenly matched, and we hope to bee them have another tus-lc before long.

CRICKET. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion — 3 March 1880

CRICKET. A. SIGN that the hot weather is gradually changing is evinced in the renewed activity of our cricketers, who mustered upon the new ground in Mr. O'Malley's town paddock last Saturday. The match was between the East End and West End, though eomc ot the best players among the former were unavoidably absent. Both sides exhibited a shocking want of batting practice, a defect we hope to see remedied now the game is likely to be resumed. The bowling was very good, how ever, considering the bumpy nature of the ground. The same may be said of the wicket keeping, which was placed in the hands of Mr. Gnpsford for the East End and Ur. Longley for the West. Mr. Longley is a new arrival and a good all-round player. The long-stops on bath sides (Messrs. Reid and Dearing) also did their work very effi ciently. The scores were small, the highest on cither side not exceeding five. The fol lowing ore the particulars of the game: EAST END. FIBST INNINGS. Sapsford, stumped, b Bobinson ... 4 Be...
