NOTES AND QUERIES. I To the Editor of the Wagga Wagga Advertiser. \ Sir,-Allow mo as an old resident to wel come you amongst us and wish you success. First impressions go a long w.iy, and ho must be difficult to please who was not favourably impressed with your first issue. You have brought out your paper well, and metaphorically I drink success to you ; but you must be careful; you don't know us yet, and I might point out to you many rooks on which, if you don't look out, the beautiful vessel, that you speak of having launched with such confidence may get wrecked; but I shan't. I rep'jat, you don't know us, and must bo careful. I like the form of your paper, and its type is good ; perhaps you have too many adver tisements from one house ; but I understand they aro all genuino, and you will sogu get plenty moro from others. Your motto is good, and if you will, ns it appears you can, act up to it* you will de serve high praise, You talk of representing us; I hope you do not uso tho w...

STOCK REPORT. ADVERTISER Office, Friday Evening. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 17 October 1868
STOCK REPORT. ADVERTISER Office, Friday Evening. Since our last we have to report a few slight showers, though at Oura and Mangoplah we learn that then have been very heavy. Recent &nbsp; news from Deniliquin and Hay gives no ac- count of any rain having fallen. At Bourke there have been a few slight showers, but not sufficient to do any permanent good, and from above there the accounts of feed are anything but encouraging. At Dubbo there has been no rain since our last, on the con- trary the weather has been very dry, with hot winds, which have had a very pernicious effect on the young grass. On the Lower Castlereagh, Barwon and Mara matters are looking very serious and already both sheep and Cattle are beginning to travel for feed and water ; however, it is not too late to get a heavy fall of rain, which would put things right again. On the 13th, Messrs. Richardson and Wrench offered, on account of the Government, the five years' lease of 96 runs. Of this number &n...

MESSRS. GEORGE FORSYTH & CO'S REPORT. AT' CATTLE.—NO transactions to report, &nbsp; this description of stock being scarce. &nbsp; Good fat cattle may be quoted : For bul- locks, 5Ɩ 10s to 6Ɩ ; cows, 4Ɩ 10s to 5Ɩ. AT SHEEP.—No sales to report ; owners of the few fat sheep in the district pre- &nbsp; ferring to take the wool off before selling. Prime fat sheep may be quoted as worth &nbsp; &nbsp; 9s 6d to 10s in the wool. We have one or two small lots we could offer. STORE CATTLE.—A fair inquiry for store cattle in good condition. Prices are likely remain firm, owing to the limited num- ber on the road, and the prospect of good prices for fat cattle for some time to come. We have some lots under offer, and hope to report sales next week. Mixed lots may be quoted 50s to 60s ; and bullocks, 60s to 70s according to quality. STORE SHEEP.—A very limited inquiry for this description of stock ; and we do not anticipate any improvement until af...

Wagga Wagga Advertiser "This is true liberty, when freeborn men, Having to advise the public, may speak free." MILTON. SATURDAY, OCTOBER 17, 1868. THE CRISIS. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 17 October 1868
WAGGA WAGGA ADVERTISER &nbsp; " This is true liberty, when freeborn men, &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Having to advise the public, may speak free." &nbsp; MILTON. SATURDAY, OCTOBER 17, 1868. &nbsp; &nbsp; THE CRISIS. IF Mr. PARKES is a vain man, his vanity must be amply gratified. If he is a revengeful man, he may chuckle with perfect satisfaction over the fate which has so swiftly overtaken his late friends and colleagues. If an ambitious man, he has a splendid opportunity of attaining the very summit of his hopes. As we are quite sure that he is all three, we have no doubt that at the &nbsp; present moment his state of mind is bordering upon what is popularly known as the entirely " serene,"—that he is contemplating with the most Christian-like fortitude, the ruin he has made, and resolving in that portentous looking head of his, ever fertile in ingenious political expedients, the best method possible of picking the &...

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 17 October 1868
LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; PRECOCIOUS PRUDENCE. - On Thursday &nbsp; afternoon a cheque for a sum of money was lost by Mr. Hunter the bookseller, of Fitz- maurice-street. The cheque was swept into the street, and was picked up by a little girl about three years old, the daughter of Mr. Callaghan, of the Pastoral Hotel. The care- ful little body trotted off with her prize to her father, who, of course, returned it to its rightful owner. Mr. Hunter gave the child a suitable reward for her thougntfulness. SODA-WATER MANUFACTORY.—It is grati- fying to observe that the spirit of enterprise in the introduction of new industries which is so rapidly becoming a characteristic of colonial life exists also in Wagga Wagga. Scarcely a week passes without some fresh evidence being given of the wide-awake energy of our townsmen. This seems to be especially the case with reference to that very import ant business, in a hot climate, the supply of potable...

GENERAL NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 17 October 1868
GENERAL NEWS. &nbsp; FATAL, ACCIDENT near WINDSOR.—An accident, attended with fatal consequences, occurred on Saturday afternoon, to police sergeant Werne. He was riding on horse back on his way from Rooty Hill to Windsor, when his cap blew off. He rained in his horse, and was attempting to regain posses sion of his cap, when the animal suddenly shied and threw him. Werne fell headfore- most to the ground, and was picked up shortly afterwards in a state of insensibility. Medical assistance was , procured, but the injuries he had received were of so severe a nature that all means used to restore him were unavailing, and he died yesterday &nbsp; morning. Concussion of the brain is sup- posed to have been the immediate cause of death. An inquest will most probably be held to day.—S. M. Herald. MR. PARKES ON HIS RESIGNATION".—Mr. Mr. Parkes has been, again unbosoming himself to his constituents. At Jamberoo, on Saturday last, he repeated his famous Kiama speech with refe...

SKETCHES IN PARLIAMENT. SYDNEY, October 14th. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 17 October 1868
SKETCHES IN PARLIAMENT. &nbsp; &nbsp; BY OLD CHUM. SYDNEY, October 14th. I send for your new paper a slight sketch of the opening of the Parlia- &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; mentary campaign. Yesterday was the first grand field-day, and with many others I wended my way to &nbsp; that remarkable building—something &nbsp; between a Noah's ark and a Peniten- &nbsp; tiary, which does duty in Sydney as &nbsp; the High Court of Parliament. In &nbsp; what is called the Upper Chamber, &nbsp; which, by the bye, is a sad misnomer in more sense than one,—there was the same bevy of fair ladies that I have witnessed on former occasions ; the same rustling of silks and flutter- ing of ribbons ; the latest novelties in those " ducks of bonnets," the beauties &nbsp; of which are extolled in Le Follet, and the sad remembrance whereof is only to be found ...

THE PIGEONS. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; To the Editor of the WaggaWagga Advertiser SIR,—Having seen a letter in the ADVERTISER &nbsp; &nbsp; signed by Mr. John Clarke, stating that cause of the pigeon match not coming off Saturday last was to be attributed to my being willing to bring the pigeons from Mur- rumburrah, and also a note from the Ed??? contradicting that he had ever seen them objected to them being brought on the coach as was currently reported in town, I beg to state the following faots :- &nbsp; &nbsp; Late on Tuesday evening, 6th instant, I as- sisted in catching 40 pigeons, according to Mr. Clarke's request, and had them securely ??? on the coach in a box over night. On Wednes- day morning, when about to start, a Mr. Mar- phy, one out of three passengers obected riding with them, as the box took up ??? room and would inconvenience the passengers. I had, therefore, either to leave the passengers or the pigeons behind, ...
SELECT POERTY. THE HALLOWED WEDDING RING. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 17 October 1868
SELECT POERTY. THE HALLOWED WEDDING RING. While Titan's war with social Jove, My own sweet wife and I, We make Elysium in our love, And let the world go by ! O never hearts beat half so light With crowned Queen or King ! O never world was half so bright As is our fairy-ring, Dear love ! Our hallow'd fairy-ring. Our world of empire is not large, But priceless wealth it holds ; A little heaven links marge to marge, But what rich realms it folds ! And clasping all from outer strife Sits Love, with folden wing, A-brood o'er dearer life-and-life, Within our fairy-ring, Dear love ! Our hallow'd fairy-ring. Thou leanest thy true heart on mine, And bravely bearest up ! Aye mingling Love's most precious wine In Life's most bitter cup ! And evermore the circling hours Now gifts of glory bring ; We live and love like happy flowers, All in our fairy-ring, Dear love ! Our hallow'd fairy-ring. We've known a many sorrows, sweet ! We've wept a many tears, And often trod with trembling feet Our pilg...
