BREWSTKLI AND TRKBECK'S RF.I'ORT. STATIONS.-Wo have 110 sales to report since our last. For most of tlio properties lately offered by us at auction we have received oilers, but at lower rates than owners were inclined to accept.

Sheep stations situated at a groat distance from market with long land carriage to post are difficult to dispose of almost at any price. STORE CATTLE.-The demand is good for well-bred lots, of suitable ages for fatten ing. Wc quote all bullocks at 45s to 55s, delivery taken at vendor's station. Equal sexes 40s to 50s. We have sold 500 head of the former 011 New England at 47s Gd, cash. STOUE SHEEP.-There is very little inquiry. Wethers may be quoted at 4s per Bead; owes, nominal.

A ROTHSCHILD'S WEALTH. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 17 March 1869
A ROTHSCHILD'S WEALTH. A contemporary says :-" The wealth left by the late Baron James de Roths child is something, fabulous. Tho late baron made the following disposition of his fortune :-He left to his wife Betty £8,000,000, the Chateau Ferriere, whose art galleries are estimated at above £800,000, and his house in the Rue Laffitte, at Paris. To his second son Gustavus he gave £8,000,000 ; to his third son Edmund £6,000,000; arid to his grandson, the son of the lato Solomon Rothschild, £2,000,000. The largest plum has fallen to the lot of his eldest son Alplionsus, who comes in for a trifle of £20,000,000. This colossal fortune, . and perhaps these legacies do not exhaust the amount, reaches the sum total of £-14,800,000."

GENTLEMANLY PASTIME. THE Figaro recounts a story not creditablo to the British peerage. Two nights ago his: Grace the Duke of Hamilton, his brother, some friends, and their, servants, all drunk, rode on horseback along the Rue Laffitte. Some of the party stopped a carriage, exclaiming, "Make way for the Duke of Hamilton." The French possessor of the carriage expressed himself in terms emphatically devoid of reverence for the Duke of Hamilton, and de manded free passage on the causeway,. Thereupon, the Figaro says, his grace administered a-blow with a life pre sei'Ver to the gentleman in the carriage, and a regular fray ensued. Some policemen, who acted with great for bearance, induced the English party to take refuge in the Maison Doreo, from one of the balconios of which they were seen up to the small hours, with several ladies wearing enormous chignons. Tho owner of the carriage who has a broken head, will bring the matter before the Tribunal of Cor rectional Police.

V " This Is true liberty, when freeborn men, Having to advise the public, may speak free." MILTON. WEDNESDAY, MARCH 17, 1869. \: WK bear complaints of the prevalence of sickness in tko town. Foyer is said to have made its appearance, termina-. j, ting in one case fatally. We are not : surprised at it. An utter neglect of the laws of health must sooner or later bring its own punishment; and there are few country towns where those laws are more utterly neglected than in Wagga Wagga. This fact has been repeatedly pointed out, but to no purpose. It must indeed be patont to every one whose nasal organ is in a tolerable state of efficiency, or whose taste in the matter of smells is as yet uncorrupted. The subject is not a savoury one. It may bo said that we have no right to find fault with the domestic economy of our neighbours, who may faii'ly assert that they are no more a nuisance to others than others are to them. But it is exactly this mutual-nuisance evil against which we desire to ...

PRI^E OF ONE HUNDRED GUINEAS X?OR THE 1 ZBDECST "ESS-A/X" ON THE LAND QUESTION. IT is granted on all sides that the Land ?^Law requires amendment : the Squatter declares it; the l&lt;Yce-selector admits it; and the author of the present Land Act at last confesses it. The nature of the amendment required must bo the great question of the next Session, or rather, of the next Parliament. On this point, public opinion is still, as it always has boon, in a state of chaos. Opinions, in abort, or "notions" which pass for opinions, are as various as there are interests to bo affected, or political purposes to be served., Before a question of such vital importance to the country is again submitted to the verdict of the people, it seems desirable that some attempt should be made to sift these various and often conflicting opinions - to separate the true from the false, the politically sound from the politically plau sible, and if possible to evolve from the mass of contradictions that...
THE PEOPLE ON SHORE. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 17 March 1869
THE PEOPLE ON SHORE. By daylight. Sydney was astir, and every street alive with excitement. As the sun rose, large numbers of people were seen wending their way in parties of twos and threes towards Port Mac quarie and Mrs. Macquarie's Chair, and those places as well as the rocks in the vicinity were soon covered with people of both sexes and of every class. From this point, at about 6 o'clock, the scene was surpassingly beautiful. Tho sun Bhone brightly on tho waters of Port Jackson, upon which hundreds of small boats, fully freighted, moved about, their occupants waiting with eager ex j pectation the appearance of the noble I f. agate. Unusual bustle appeared on board the training ship Vernon, and I from the shore the orders of the cap tain and officers to the boys could be distinctly heard, and tho youngsters could be seen obeying orders with great activity; Farm Covo was unusually empty of ships of war; tho French s r.w-steamer Guchen being the only one at anchor there.

Arrival of the Galatea at Sydney. LANDING OF THE PRINCE. ENTHUSIASTIC DEMONSTRATIONS OP WELCOME. (From the Empire of Sydney.) AFLOAT TO WELCOME TItH PKINCE. BY telegrams on Wednesday, we learned that the Galatea passed Two fold Bay tliat morning, and it was thus anticipated that she would be off Syd ney Heads at an early hour yesterday. Accordingly the Florence Irving, which had been chartered to convey all who desired to be the first to wolcome his Royal Highness outside the Heads, left the CirculavQuay at sunrise, having on board about 120 persons. She was followed, after a short interval, by the Vesta and other smaller boats, with a considerable number of citizens of all classes. The morning was beautiful; the water being as calm as a mill pond. The Florence Irving passed down the harbour at full speed, for it was thought that the Galatea would by this time have arrived at the Heads. As she neared the Lightship, the yachts as sembled in Watson's Bay were seen all ready for a star...
DEMONSTRATIONS OF WELCOME. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 17 March 1869
DEMONSTRATIONS OF WELCOME. . Throughout the city and suburbs genuine demonstrations of an affection ato welcome to the distinguished guest prevailed. George-street North exhi bited a complete forest of banners, the example was followed along the street to the brink of the water, and as far south as the University. In Pitt-street, York-street, Macquarie-strcet, and the various cross streets, even in the high ways and byways of the city, flags of all nations fluttered in the breeze. In some cases special tokens of wolcome have been prepared in the shape of window transparencies ; the effect of which can only bo gathered in the evening.
THE LANDING. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 17 March 1869
THE. LANDING. ?; i [-j -V -y'-' At about 10 o'clock, the St. George's Cross having been hoisted at Govern ment House, to denote that the Earl of Belmore had arrived, his Royal High ness, accompanied by his Equerries, landed at the stairs at the back of Government - House, under a royal salute of twenty-one guns. A large concourse of persons had there as sembled, who greeted the Duke with hearty cheers. His Royal Highness, who was in undress naval uniform, looked uncommonly well; and more sunburnt, although somewhat thinner, his appearance is certainly more manly and commanding. On landing, fol lowed by his suite, he walked rapidly to the little gate at the bottom of the Government Gardens, and repeatedly raised his cap in recognition of the enthusiastic reception he met with. There his Royal Highness was received by his Excellency the Governor, with whom he heartily shook hands, and appeared delighted to see him again. The party then proceeded to the Vice-regal abodo, where the high...
DIAMOND ISLES. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 17 March 1869
DIAMOND ISLES. Sixbab'S story of the Valley of Dia monds is more than realized, if we are to believe the reports which are pub lished in South American papers. He merely picked up and pocketed some good sized diamonds about as big as his fist; but now we are told of a cap tain of a vessel who has met with large islands standing in the sea like large icebergs. The particulars of this extraordinary discovery (if it really be one) are con tained in. a letter from the captain of a vessel trading between San Francisco and Valparaiso, and he says that the islands which he describes were found in the Pacific Ocean, though he does not say in what latitude ; lie keeps that a secret to himself. The substance of his statement is that when nearly half way on the voyage, and at the time the earthquake in. Sooth America took place, "a fearful phenomenon" pre sented itself. The ocean became con vulsed, and a terrible wave swept along so high that the captain humourously remarked that he thought it...
