ROEBOURNE PASTORAL NOTES.

[By Vermont].

The shearing season has now passed, and stations have settled to improvements. The wool clip generally has been light throughout this district owing to the very dry year passed through, but there are better times ahead. The bounteous winter rains have enabled the stock to recover right off the shears, and should summer rains fall they will have good feed for the whole twelve months, when we may reasonably anticipate a record clip the coming season.

Wool-laden teams are arriving daily at Derby. The clip prospects are reported as being excellent.
