Tho growth of arrowroot is said to be very satisfací tory in tho Armidale district. It understood that many of the squatters of Walgett intend xo oommenco fencing during the approaching winter. It is generally acknowledged to be the only way of ensuring a fair chance of success in squatting. A few days ago, at a shallow part of tho river Murray, near tho Howlong Pound, some dogs rushed some sheei> belonging to J. Lindsay Brown, Esq., of Gooramadda, on tho Victorian sido, and forced thirteen of them across, tho river. These the Corowa inspector seized, and killed and burnt them, as also ton others belonging to tho poundkeeper. Tho latter wore pot sheep, and were purchased by the inspector. Although Goora madda is a clean portion of Victoria, and the sheep wero also stated to bo clean, never having been dis eased, still Victoria being proclaimed infected, justified the'hiBpector in tho action ho took in tho matter ; and the occurrence is expected to havo a beneficial effect by show...

Wagga Wagga. . ? (FHOM A. COllHESPONDEJiT.) Just now the principal question mooted is that of a public bridge over the Murrumbidgee. A fow years ago a Bridge Company started, and obtained from Parliament ,the right to collect tolls on all stock nnd vohicles crossing the river for a distance of four *" miles-two miles above and two below tho town- _ ship-in consideration of their building a substantial bridge and maintaining it in serviceable condition. The capital expended by tho company in building tho bridge is stated at .-£6000 ; and, judging from the very high tolls levied by thom, and tho large traffic i over tho river, they must bo realising an annual I income of £2000. Thus, buggies are charged one shilling per wheel, and fourpence for each horse drawing. Many of tho inhabitants, tliiuking that thc company have boen making too good a thing out of their speculation, liavo petitioned the Govern ment through our member, Mr. W. Mncleay, but without avail.

The Betting Market [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 5 March 1870
The Betting Market BUSINESS on tho forthcoming events at Randwick, has been very Hmited. There has been no right out betting on the Leger, and prices remain unaltered. In consequence of a few scratchings from the Gold Cup, the prices of one or two of the horses have shortened, the most noticeable hoing Circassian, who is now freely back at 10 to 1, because his stable companion "the Baron has been scratched. Bylong is rapidly advancing in public favour, having boen backed to win three centuries,,at loto 1. The Italian was also-entrusted with a little money, 600 to 30 being taken about him. COO to 10 was laid against the English colt. The favorite "book" appears to be the double Leger and Cup, and the largest transactions are done on these two events. 1000 to 30 v Moselle and Moselle, 300 to 12 Moselle and Tim, and SOO to 15 Lamplighter and Tim, were laid this week. The followers of the yellow and black aro deter mined to make tho representative of that stable, a very hot favorite. It...
The Bathurst Running. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 5 March 1870
The Bathurst Running. " ^ BY PEGASUS. N Mï Bathurst friends seem to have had a good meeting ; and right glad am I to congratulate them thereon. Our Sydney and Bichmond horses won their share of the good things, .hut Mr. Ivory could not succeed rn pulling off a race. I was . quite satisfied that all TraverWs chance of winning anything was harmless ; and I don't think there are many people now who be lieve in this over-rated animal. Not that his per formance at Bathurst must bo taken as any criterion of his quality, seeing that the horse wasn't fit to run for straws. A îemark with whioh I may also dismiss Marske. The Ida Colt, haB broken the ice ; and I am glad of it on Mr. Tait's account. I never liked the colt; and though he can travel well under a light weight, I don't fancy he's fond of eight stone ten. Carnation's condition pulled her through the Cup on the "Wednes day ; but my opinion is that the mare is a jade, and one day's racing is quito enough to Batisfy her. I reokoned her...

EDITORIAL NOTES. THE " correspondence respecting tho unauthorised óxpendituro bf public money" by certain mombors of tho lato Martin Govornment, which was ordored to be printed on tho 10th instant, was placed "boforo tho pxiblic in our last issuo. It will bo soenfrom tho document that the important question as to tho liability of Ministers to criminal information for misdemeanour in siich cases is decided in tho nega tive. Tho opinions of ,the, eminent picador Mr. Darlej', and of tho Attornoy and Solicitor Goneral, go to show that Messrs. Engar and Byrnes woro only responsible to Parliament for tho unauthorised oxponditure of public money incurred by them, " as it is alleged," in tho furtherance of party purposos. The " law" of the caso seems to bo this : Where thoro is a breach of trust (as in tho disposal of moneys) on tho part of a public servant (as Treasurer) towards tho Queon and public, tho offence is indictable. But the question which Mr. Darley set himself to consider is th...
