DALMAHOY CAMPBELL AND CO.'S REPORT. Melbourne, October 28, 1868. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 4 November 1868
DALMAHOY CAMPBELL AND CO.'S &nbsp; REPORT. &nbsp; Melbourne, October 28, 1868. FAT CATTLE.—Two thirds of the week's sup- ply have been sold to-day, viz., 650 head, the quality of which, as a whole, was infe- rior, with a small proportion of fair beef, but nothing prime amongst them. There was a good attendance of buyers, and the market opened with a brisk demand at about last week's rates, but closed at a con- siderable reduction. This may be partly accounted for by the hot weather, which affects the consumption of beef very mate- rially. We quote best bullocks offered at from £6 15s. to £7 15s. ; second, from £5 to £6 ; inferior, from £3 10s. to £4 10s. Cows, only a few offered, which sold from £4 to £5 5s. ; and have sold 30 head for Mrs. James, of Bacchus' Marsh, at an ave- rage of £6 11s. 3d. The balance of the week's supply, about 340 head, will be dis- posed of to-morrow. FAT SHEEP.—The various lots penned for the week amounted to 16,804. This number, although ...

Wagga Wagga Advertiser "This is true liberty, when freeborn men, Having to advise the public, way speak free." WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 4, 1868. TO BE OR NOT TO BE? [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 4 November 1868
Wagga Wagga Advertiser " This is true liberty, when free born men, Having to advise the public may speak free." MILTON. WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 4, 1868. TO BE OR NOT TO BE ? " THERE is one remedy for all," says the poet, and jumps into the river. " There is one remedy for all,", says; the prac- tical man, and puts his shoulder to the wheel. The one specific of the senti- mental genius under circumstances of difficulty, is an easy death—the dark- flowing river, the lake with gloomy shore—or, if very far gone in the fine &nbsp; frenzy of sensational suicide, a last supper at the Café, wit, wine, and &nbsp; wassail, winding up with coffee and pistols for one, or a petit verre of prussic acid. The specific of the practical genius under similar circumstances is hard work, and a careful attention to those interests to which if he does not attend it is. quite certain that no one else will. Few men, probably, get through life without having to choose in some degree between these...
LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 4 November 1868
LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. THE PASTORAL SHOW.—A meeting of the &nbsp; Pastoral Association was held yesterday, at the Commercial Hotel, W. O. Windeyer, Esq., President, in the Chair. Two judges in each class were appointed, the appoint- ment of the remaining judges being postponed until the night before the Show. It was also decided to erect a division in the large yards, to facilitate the drafting of stock. Several gentlemen were appointed to assist the judges and prevent any interference with them in the performance of their duties. SNAKES.—The great heat of the last few weeks has had the effect of inducing several of these unwelcome guests to make their ap- pearance. Not content with bush quarters, which we suppose are slightly monotonous, even to these most unsociable of beings, they have invaded the town, setting up a claim to share in the blessings of civilisation as repre- sented by shady verandahs, kitchens, and stables, with all the coolness and slimy impu- dence of reptil...

TURF TALK. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 4 November 1868
TURF TALK. WE understand that the Committee of the Turf Club have decided upon carrying out the alteration in the running ground as sug- gested in our Second issue. The effect is to give a much longer straight run, and to get rid of at least one of the sharp curves which have given so much dissatisfaction. The ground is, of course, hard, and woe to those nags whose " poor feet," on the eventful day, are not in A1 condition. The various dis- tances have been measured and marked out. The distance once round is rather over a mile and a quarter, so that for the Ten Mile Race the horses will have to travel round the course seven times and three-quarters—a burster indeed in any case, and if the weather should be as hot as it has been lately, a settler, we &nbsp; expect, for some of them. The Grand Stand is rapidly approaching completion, and pro- mises to be a great acquisition to the racing &nbsp; &nbsp; public. Some alterations have been made in &nbsp; &a...
NARANDERA. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 4 November 1868
NARANDERA. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] SINCE my last nothing of any great interest has occurred. For the past forty-eight hours, the weather has been dull and threatening rain, which, I believe, for some years past, has not been more required than at present. Rumour has it that innumerable sheep, and any number of cattle, are about to travel for sale or for feed. Where they are likely to find the latter I really cannot say, unless, &nbsp; about Gundaroo, as your correspondent in his communication of last week, in writing of the appearance of the country there, held out great temptation to visitors, especially those with fifteen or twenty thousand sheep accom- panying them. A special court was held here on Thursday last, before G. Marryat, Esq., J.P. A young man named Thomas Giddeons having been charged, by Mr. J. J. Robert, manager of the Narandera Station, with horse-stealing. It appears, from the evidence produced, to be a case of disputed ownership, as Mr. Woolett, publ...
WOOL PROSPECTS. To the Editor of the Wagga Wagga Advertiser. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 4 November 1868
WOOL PROSPECTS. To the Editor of the Wagga Wagga Advertiser. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; SIR,—I am somewhat surprised that the late unprecedented fall in wool has not elicited more comment, some general expression of opinion from the Press. When the staple commodity of a young colony deteriorates in value by one-half, it is reasonable to assume that that colony has received a startling blow, which -will be felt in every ramification of her general com- merce—a blow which, for some considerable time, will cause a prostration of all her ener- &nbsp; gies—which will produce numberless changes, every change at the expense of capital in- vested, and every change attended with loss. In fact, that colony has lost half its wealth derivable from that great export ; it is poorer in that particular production by one half. It can scarcely, I think, be disputed that &nbsp; such a blow has fallen upon Australia. Its wool—its chief production—has, wi...
NEWS BY THE MAIL. GREAT RAILWAY DISASTER. London, Sept. 11. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 4 November 1868
NEWS BY THE MAIL. GREAT RAILWAY DISASTER. &nbsp; London, Sept. 11. A HUGE holocaust has been offered on the railway between Chester and Holyhead. Thirty-four persons were consumed—rapped suddenly in a sheet of flame, and burnt to ashes. No more appalling catastrophe is on record ; yet this happened to one of the best appointed trains in England—the Irish mail, which for years past has been famous both for punctuality and speed. On the morning of Thursday, the 20th of August, this mail, as usual, left Euston- square, with a full complement of passengers. Chester was reached, where some additional carriages were attached, and it again pro- ceeded at its usual pace of about forty miles an hour. About half-way between Chester and Holyhead is the station of Abergele, in the midst of a most picturesque neighbour hood. The railway here for some miles runs close to the seashore, while inland the Welsh hills rise in attractive beauty. Beyond Aber- gele the line curves, and there is a...
THE QUEEN. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 4 November 1868
THE QUEEN. There has been an unusual flitting to and fro this month of European kings and princes seeking change and recreation in the fashion of ordinary mortals. Our own Queen returns from Switzerland to-day, and reached Paris yesterday in safety. Her sojourn among the mountains appears to have been a time of uninterrupted enjoyment. A alight sensation of uneasiness was occasioned by a report which crept into a French paper, that a Fenian had been captured near the Royal residence, intent on assassination. Then came an explanation that an eccentric Englishman, a madman in fact, had sought to force admission into the Royal presence, for the mere sake of being face to face with majesty. Finally, there appeared a brief official announcement, denying that the Queen had experienced any inconvenience whatever during her visit. In Lucerne, as everywhere else, her Majesty has made a most favorable impression by her simple appearance and pleasant manners. Several anecdotes have found their...
DR. PUSEY AND THE WESLEYANS. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 4 November 1868
DR. PUSEY AND THE WESLEYANS. The Wesleyan Conference has this year attracted unusual attention, and the manner in which its proceedings have been noted is highly significant of the ecclesiastical changes in progress here. A letter from Dr. Pusey, addressed to the president, was read to the conference, inviting that body to unite in opposition to Mr. Coleridge's bill for the abolition of university tests, on the ground that it exposed the colleges to the invasion of atheistic and irreligious teachers. Dr. Pusey proposes a subscription to the Nicene creed, instead of the Articles, or the endowment of separate colleges for each denomination. The conference declined to take up the question, and left the president to answer Dr. Pusey's letter in his private capacity. The spirit of the whole transaction has been admirably caught by Punch, in a new version of the old song, which he entitles, " Rejected Addresses ; or the Old Don and Miss Methodist " :- " ' Where are you going to, my pretty...
AGRARIAN OUTRAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 4 November 1868
AGRARIAN OUTRAGE. Some of the wrongs of Ireland rest upon the landlords' shoulders, a fact of which we have recently had sad and tragic illustration. A Mr. Scully, a large landed proprietor in Tipperary, having newly come into posses- sion, attempted to impose, some tyrannical restrictions upon his tenantry, and, upon their resisting, proceeded to evict a large number of them. Having obtained the as- sistance of the police, he went to serve the necessary notices, and was fired upon from a barn. In the conflict which ensued—a kind of civil strife rather than a murderous out- rage—two of his companions were shot dead, and others wounded, while he himself was hit hard in the neck. So oppressive and illegal were the regulations he was endeavour ing to enforce, that both the coroner's jury and the magistrates have since united to condemn his conduct in the strongest terms.
PEACE OR WAR? [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 4 November 1868
PEACE OR WAR ? &nbsp; THERE has been much agitation in Paris, and &nbsp; on the Bourse almost a panic. It was whis- pered that this week the Emperor would make &nbsp; &nbsp; a warlike declaration at Chalons. Pacific &nbsp; protestations we have had in abundance, from the Emperor and great state officials ; &nbsp; but the more of these, the more suspicion &nbsp; seems to grow. On every hand there are in- dications of a susceptible state of public feel- ing, that in itself is full of danger. Every rumour is caught up and canvassed ; every movement is scrutinised and suspected ; ex- planations are given ; the merest gossip— &nbsp; even an anecdote about the Prince Imperial —gets prominent notice, and perhaps official denial. &nbsp; The question of peace or war will probably in the end be decided by the exigencies of the Emperor's own position. If disaffection increase as it now threatens, he may seek to divert atte...
RECENT DEATHS. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 4 November 1868
RECENT DEATHS. Amongst recent deaths must be mentioned that of Mr. Douglas Cooke, the editor of the Saturday Review, a man unknown beyond a select circle, but in his calling pre-eminently able. It was his principle, at whatever cost, to take always the best article that came to hand on any topic, and in this lay in good part the secret of the success of that journal. Another journalist, though of an irregular order, Mr. Mathew James Higgins, better known as " Jacob Omnium," has also left us. He was long one of the strongest men men 0n the Times, and by his articles on Military Reform did good service in his day. He was ail intimate friend of Thackeray, and in the old days at the Charter house was the cause of that broken nose which the great satirist carried with him through life.
THE ELECTIONS.—THE CHURCH QUESTION. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 4 November 1868
THE ELECTIONS.—THE CHURCH QUESTION. THE Abergele tragedy has absorbed a large portion of attention, yet there is no lack of &nbsp; exciting topics before the public. The Irish &nbsp; &nbsp; Church continues to be the theme of much &nbsp; &nbsp; debate. Archbishop Trench has delivered a charge which will not add to his reputation, but from the weakness of its arguments seems likely rather to injure than strengthen the cause he defends. The Archbishop of Armagh has followed, but places the issue upon broader grounds, asserting that the Irish Church is but a part of the national church of the United Kingdom, and as such, the church of the majority. There was to have been a grand demonstration at the Crystal Palace, and the names of many church dignitaries and noblemen were pub- lished as befriending the movement, but it proved a miserable failure. Not a speech was delivered of any mark, and scarcely more than 2,000 persons were assembled, It is t...
THE TRADE IN COSMETICS. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 4 November 1868
THE TRADEIN COSMETICS. The Bond-street tariff is an astounding &nbsp; appeal to female folly. It is incredible that women can be found base enough and extra- vagant enough to avail themselves of its offers ; yet if its suggestions are of any service even as puffery, they imply that there are victims who can be beguiled by any glittering attraction, and who do not shrink even from Borradaile prices if they can add to their charms. The list of prices issued from Madame Rachel's establishment is a curious revelation. A sovereign is a small charge for a box or packet of trash ; " the choicer salves and powders " are just double that price. " The .Royal bridal bath soap " is only to be had at £18 per dozen cakes ; " bridal toilet cabinets are arranged at 200 guineas " " souvenirs de mariage " may be purchased " at 100 guineas ;" and for christenings, " Jordan water, at twenty guineas per bottle." Then in the catalogue one also reads of " Arabian fumigated oils for bridal chamber ...
THE "RIGHTS OF WOMAN." [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 4 November 1868
THE " RIGHTS OF WOMAN." A NOVEL element is likely to be introduced into the elections, for a goodly number of women appear disposed to assert their right to vote. In Birmingham alone n0 fewer than 557 female ratepayers have sent in their claims, while as many as eighteen ladies have claimed to be placed 0n the county register in North Warwickshire. The question thus raised will be warmly contested in the regis- tration courts, and its legal aspect fully shown.
