GUNNEDAH STOCK REPOBT.-June 28,1879.-We have had a week of changeable weather. In the early partuf the week it was warm and fine, from which it turned to rough, borterous, and windy, followed by rain, 40-lOOths falling, when the wind rose again, blowing off all sigas of further ruin ; and the weather now remains fine and warm at day, and sharp frosfs at night. On the 21st, 110 fat cattle, Doyle's (Killarney), passed for Tamworth, in charge of Mr. R. Tudor ; and through the weak a mob of fat cattle (Bagot's), from the Mionie, for Maitland, We hear Mr. J. G. Darke is travelling down the river with 1600 merino wethers, from Wellingrove, going to Goolhi, having been purchased by Mr. Iredale. Namoi ndependent.


has not been anything of particular note in the direction of the weather to report since our lust ; tho days have been fine and bright, and the nights cold. To-day has boen cold, cloudy, and dull, and we ap- pear upon the eve of another downpour of rain. A few good showers at the present time would not do any harm, although we are told tint a comparatively short distance out of town there is no lack of luxu- riant feed. The only stock movement, locally, that we have to report is the paBBing of Mr. C. S. Byrne with 1,000 heifers, the property of Messrs. Robertson Brothers, of Colac, from Bethanga, Victoria, going to Commongin, Bulloo River, Queensland, lately the property of Messrs A, Boss and Co. They cross the river to-morrow, a nasty job now it is so high. Barwon Argus.

DUBBO STOCK REPOBT,-Thursday, June 26 - The weather recently hna boen rather changeable. We have had up to Monday night frosty nights and mornings ; but on that day a few drops of rain fell, and that night or next morning there was no frost. Tuesday looked like rain-black clouds drifting about, and a humid wind blowing. The country round Dubbo looks well. There i», more especially back from the main coads, plenty of feed, and stock of all descriptions are doing and looking well. Pre- parations for shearing are already being made. In most uf the sheas the shears will be in operation in August, and, f:om all we can hear, there will be an excellent clip. It ia expected to be heavy and clean. The English telegrams tell of an improved market, and there is, therefore, every prospect of better times for the pastoralist, On the Macquarie tbe country looks well, there is abundance ot ford and water,-and, of course, stock are as well as , they could be wished. On the Bogan, matters are 'looking firat-rate, Plenty of feed and water, and no grumbling. On the Castlereagh, matters pastoral could not well be batter. On all sides, feed in abund- ance, and stock in prims order. Mr. Buchanan com- mences shearing, at the Warrana shed, next month. On the Marthaguy, Merri Merrçi, and Duck Creek, there is nothing to grumble about, The Dubbo Dis- trict stock items are as follows :- Cobb and Co.'a fat
