Disritrcr GAOL. TO TIIE EDITOn. SIB,-Why advocate keeping criminals in the district by confining them in a gaol to be built nt" pome central point." Let them go. Wc can spare them. They lmvc come to us probably from district* where they were bred, Wc don't want & nursery for them licrc in order to have them when their time is served, and the chance of sending them to llock hatnpton in the end on their way to a marine residence, besides you have not shown that it would be cheaper to the country to keep tbem liere, or that they would have lietter discipline in a district gaol. Fnuicc ha£ her New Caledonia, why riiould not the Mitel tell district have its Rockhampton or other place where the erimiunls will be acceptable ? Tours faithfully, J. T. A. Barcoo, 1st Mnrcli, 1880.
TAMBO AND BLACKALL MAIL. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion — 10 March 1880
TAMBO AND BLACKALL MATT. TO THE EDITQB, SIB,-This service has begun very badly. It is as well to speak in lime ns to wait in liope for belter work in the future. " New brooms sweep clean," but this is no belter tlian an old one worn to tlic stump. The stations on the main road between Tnnibo and Blackall lmvc not received the mails due from Northampton to Tnmbo on tlic 3rd and 101U instant, nor that from Blackall 011 the 9th instant. The weather has been showery, but not bad enough to stop the mail between the " twin towns," We arc told that the mail which should have been delivered, via Brisbane, at Tambo on the Slst ultimo, was taken on by Cobb's coach to Blackall. M'c are, as stated above, still without it. This irregularity is of a piece with the contractor's turn-out-a youth unable to read the ad dresses on the letters he has to deliver mounted on knocked.up horses, Cobb k Co. spoiled us by the regularity of their post delivery. We must now, it appears, fall back on tlic old ha...

How to Settle the Barcoo. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion — 10 March 1880
How to Settle the Barcoo. THE Western Champion brought down on its head a good many loctures for its audacity in proclaiming equal war against free selec tors and Chinese, With the editor, who is good enough to publish this paper, 1 partly agree. That free selectors, suoh as nre settled in the coast districts, con make a living by agriculture on tho Barcoo I entirely dis believe. Whother the climate will permit of farming is at least doubtful; that climato and country alike are unsuited to the settlement oontcmplatcd by our existing land laws I am qnito sure. Yet I cannot believe that such a magnificent district will not support in com fort and prosperity a population of settlers at least ten times as numerous as its present population, Having worked out a plan by which, I think, this desirable end could be attained, I submit it to the judgment of those who ought to be able to say whether it is I feasible. I do not propose to enter into such details j as are necessary when explainin...

BRISBANE AFFAIRS. FROM OUR SPECIAL CORRESPONDENT. February 27. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion — 10 March 1880
BRISBANE AFFAIBS. FBOM OCB SPECIAL OOBBE8PONDENT. February 27. MOSTLY rain since my last with occasional breaks. It looked very like a flood at the beginning of tlic week, bat the water ran off. It remains cool. I think the whole volunteer force is likely to come to grief. The body has been suffer ing from internal decay, and symptoms are apparent which indioato that it is reaching an advanced stage, " Major" Snelling lias eant in his resignation again, and this time he means it. The Eastercneampment, which was at best something very like a force, will not, I hear, take place. One reason is that the volunteer officers are discontented. On the last occasion they kept themselves and west to a good deal of expense, and they assert that the paid officers were allowed an extra guinea a day during the time in camp. This they say was unfair. And al though in itself the gricrancc is not a great one, yet they claim that it is of the nature of the proverbial lost straw. They aro ex tremely di...

SHic IQcsstqii Cpramjjuw. Vita title Uteris mort est. BLACKALL, WEDNESDAY, MAKCH 10. WE looked forward with some interest to sec what position tic Rockbampton Bulletin would occupy in Ibc general expression of opinion upon tbc importa tion of Kanakas inland. It bas grati fied us to observe tbat tbc explanation of bovr the regulation made by tbc pre vious Ministry was ignored by tbc present, is given with a great deal of candour and clearness. Tbc Bulletin says " tbat until tbc recent meetings in tbc western townships directed attention to tbc fact tbat tbc Government were allowing Kanakas to be hired for service inland, we were quite unaware tbat any change bad been made in tbc administra tion of the Polynesian Laborers Act. . * * * It now appears that tbc present Colonial Secretary, treating tbc DOUOL.AB regulation as ultra vires, bas issued licences to various persons to employ Polynesians inland."

BILLIARDS. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion — 10 March 1880
BILLIAEDB. A BET urn miteh between the two antago nist of last week came off on Satcrday even ing at Abbott's Billiard Boom. This time the matcli was for £10 aside, and the room was crowdcd with spectators, a still larger number looking on from the equally advan tageous and coaler position at the windows and doors. Oolding went off with the lcai), and when the game was called, 67 87, had 30 points to the good. This lead he managed to maintain until the ninety was reached when Abbott began to pull up, and at the first ccntury both players were together. This position they maintained for about 40 points, when Abbott drew ahead, reaching the 200 some 40 points in advance. For the next half hour Abbott slowly increased his advantage until he was over GO points ahead, when Golding with steady and careful play crept up to his opponent When the gome was called at 400 Golding hod managed to range alongside of his adversary, and each time Anbott drew ahead he was carefully followed.
