It seems that we unfortunate residents in Wagga are doomed to misrepresenta tion npon our action in tlie Junee ami Narandera railway scheme. The lead ing metropolitan journal discharges a whole slienf of arrows at tlie town, with a wondrous unsteadiness of aim, and anything but a clear idea of what it is firing at. Now we have other extreme — tlie Riverine Herald — talking volubly upon the same subject, and it would appear in similar obscurity as to the facts. That the errors which have arisen are mainly due to injudicious action which has been taken we cannot deny. But to save us from further misrepresentation, let it now be said that Wagga does not take up a selflsh standpoint ; tlie residents desire to see the cheapest, shortest, and best line to Hay made. If it be shown that the route they advocate does not com bine all these advantages, they certainly will not obstinaeely adliere to a delusion, but will cheerfully give in. So far, there has been 110 proof that we are wrong ; we...

Fat Stock.— The Sydney market has, during the last week, slightly impruved, and altogether shows a firmer tone.
