REPORT FROM TBE CHIEF INSPECTOR 1 'F SHEEP. Littlehampton, January 23, 1868. Sir— I have the honour to forward my report for the quarter ending December 31, 1867, for the in formation of His Excellency the Governorin Chief, of the state of tbe flocks. Mr. Inspector Watson reports 'only 4,000 sheep imported via the Barrier Ranges route from New South Wales. The sheep from ihe South East, on a eecond examination, I found to be per fectly free from disease. All the sheep seen in the Northern District look healthy and dean.' Mr. Inspector Glenie reports ' the Murray Dis trict as healthy. Fifteen thousand six hundred iheep have been imported from New South Wales by this route, and as the restrictions are not re moved no exportations have taken place during thia quarter. During the year 80.4')7 were im ported from New South Wales and 1,520 frcm Vic toria, the exports amounting to only 15,(5 0. This is a great falling (iff from 1866*. when the imports only exceeded the exjwrts by 27,100.' Sixty-two thousand fix hundred sheep have been imported into the South- h-t from Victoria during the quarter, but uearly half thn number belong to those persons who have sUtionx on the boundary. No disease has been repotted a-) having been found in the South-last among the South Australian flecks, but the Boundary Patroller has destro)e«l several stray Victorian sheep, some of which were

aiseaseu; ana ou fneep irnni a Victorian run (McAllum's) were taken out of a flock of Mr. Sutton'ft running close to the boundary, but no disease wsa reported as being seen on them. One flock has been dipped as a precaution. Although my information of the state of the adjoining runs near Mount Gambier (in Victoria) wan indignantly and abusively denied by letters publicly, I havo found that all the stations alluded to, and more, have been advertised as scabby during the post six mouths; and were it not for the active exertions of the Victorian Inspector, who works hard under disadvan°a?eous circumstances, the sheep would be in a much worse state. At present 1 lock upnn the sheen on our runs adjoining, the boundary, south of Penola, as being in imminent danger of infection. The Suburban Inspector reports the sheep in the Adelaide District and those passing thtouch the market. yards as healthy. Several lots ot sheep have been imported. Two hundred rams from Victoria were snipped to Fowler's Bay, the agenti agreeing to have them dressed in proper medicine. It would he of great advantage to importer*, and a safeguard to our shipowners, if some pait of Port Adelaide was proclaimed a quarantine ground for imported Bheep to be landed, and there dressed in strong medicine before being removed inland. This could bi done without inconven'euce under the present Quarantine Act, and 1 am satisfied would allay much uneasiness that at present exists as to the danger of parties importing diseased Bheep. Iu the Wellington District, on the east Bide of the hiver Murray, the sheep being clean the quarantine has been reduced to a much smaller area; that part on which the worst diseased sheep were destroyed is now known as District Ho. £ Thomson's Ferry has been placed in quarantine as District No. 4, so that if necessary 1 Ban at once stop any sheep from travelling, and all re quiring to cross tbe Murray most Hist obtain an examination and special permit fur their stock. This they were not obliged to do formerly, conse quently it will ensure that all ttock travelling across the Murray will be inspected. District So. 1 has been retained without alteration, and Dis trict No. 2 is reduced on this side of the Murray to Messrs. Hughes &Kaye's and Mr.'linrUax'a sta tion*. principally in tbe Hundred of fcrinkley. The flocks on these stations have been carefully watched, and the medical treatment which they have undergone, so far as can be detected at pie sent, seems to be effectual, and in appearance tney

luv* iictuiujf nuu wrn. no Kneep nave ucen )&? moved of these stations about which I have had anj doubt; and those removed I felt fully justified m allowing, as they were isolated from any dig. eased sheep, and must have shown disease had there been any in them from the length of time during which they were carefully watched. Although no disease has shown Itself, and the sheep look healthy, it will not be advisable to withdraw Districts N03. 1 an 12 from quarantine for some months yet I have, &c, C. J. VAUarriNE, Uhief Inspector of Sheep. To the Hon. the Coramitiioner of Crown Lands and Immigration. IA^POUNDED AT THE PUBLIC POUNDS TUNGKILLO, Section 19J(nearest Po»W)ffice. Tungkillo).
