EXECUTION OF A WOMAN FOR THE MURDER OF HER HUSBAND. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 20 March 1869

EXECUTION OF A WOMAN FOR THE MURDER OF HER HUSBAND. Yesterday Priscilla Biggadyke, sen tenced to death at the Tate Lincoln Assizes for the murder of her husband, Richard Biggadyke, at Sticlcney, near Boston, underwent the extreme penalty of the law in Lincoln Castle. The con vict had three children, the eldest being twelve years of age and the youngest an infant; but she never saw anything of these unfortuate little ones, now left orphans, after her conviction, neither did she see any of her other relatives until Saturday, when' her sisters and' brothers visited heir. The interview half," and the prisoner became several times much excited.' ! She 1 denied 'to her relatives that she was the poisoner of her hus band.

PRIZE 1 op ONE HUNDBED GUINEAS FOK Till? IBIEST ESSAY ox THE LAND QUESTION. IT is granted on all sides that tke Land Law requiros amendment : the Squatter declares it; the Froo-selector admits it; . nnd the author of the present Land Act at last confesses it. The nature of the amendment required must be the great question of the next Session, or rather, of the next Parliament. On this point, public opinion is still, as it always lias been, in a state of chaos. Opinions, in short, or "notions" which pass for opinions, are as various as there are interests to be 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 tlie true from the false, the politically sonnd from the politically plau sible, and if possible to evolve from the mass of contradictions that happy golden m...

MISCELLANEOUS. A SPIRITUAL VISIT. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 20 March 1869

? MISCELLANEOUS. A SPIRITUAL VISIT. ; : In a case lately heard before the Sheriff at Dundee, it turned out that a husband, who was-; supposed to have been dead years ago, had come to life again, and returned to his wife after an , absence of nearly fifteen years! the husband's story was curious. - He said that he believed his wife to be dead, and remained wandering ; iii South America: He then added -" Iri the after part of October, 1867| while lying in bed one fine night, I fancied I saw a female figure approaching my bedside.

THE STATION AND THE FARM. ARTIFICIAL GRASSES. (From the Queenslander.) [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 20 March 1869

THE STATION AND THE FARM. ARTIFICIAL GliASSES. (Frovi the Qttcenslander.) No squatter, whei'e the climate is suitable, should be without his pad docks of artificial grasses near his homestead, for the purpose of keeping stud and young stock, which require to bo kept in good condition. To the dairyman tho advantage would be an increase of from one to three pounds of butter per cow per week, and the keep of at least two cows where one was depastured 011 the natural grasses. But perhaps no class of stockholder would profit more by the cultivation of grasses than the small sheepholder, whose extent of run is of a limited area. The writer has, on comparatively poor land, laid down with artificial grasses, kept five ewes and lambs per acre-the lambs, at four months old, weighing from forty to fifty pounds each, and fetching, in Sydney, from 15s. to 25s. per head. In laying down grasses for sheep, care should be taken to secure those sorts of which sheep are the fondest, and on which they ...

Magga Magga Advertiser "This is true liberty, when freeborn men, Having to advise the publice may speak free." MILTON. SATURDAY, MARCH 20, 1869. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 20 March 1869

" This is true liberty, when frceborn men, Having to advise the publlo, may speak free." MILTON. SATURDAY, MARCH 20, 18G9. THE recent political expose in Melbourne is not very encouraging1 to those who put their faith in responsible Ministers. The objection to the old nominee Minister often was that he was above his work. We have so far succeeded in altering the type as to get a Minister who is above nothing, not even a paltry bribe. If the telegraphic reports speak truly, there are people who think the change an improvement. Ballarat, it seems, is proud of her late member, and receives, with open arms, the man whose presence was said to infect the air even of the Victorian Assembly. It is hardly worth while to : discuss the pros and cons of the ' ALEXANDER v. JONES scandal. The de fendant in that memorable case is in the happy position of a general to : whom victory must' bo as fatal as defeat. Whatever the character of his opponent may be, there can be no question as to the worthl...

ADELAIDE. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 20 March 1869

ADELAIDE. The capital of South Australia' is reputed the hottest of all the cities that are chiefly inhabited by the English race ; and as I neared it through the Backstairs Passage into the Gulf of St. "Vincent, past Kangaroo Island, and still more when I landed at Glenelg, I came to the conclusion that its repu tation was deserved. The extreme heat .which characterises South Australia is to some extent a consequence of its lying so far north as New South Wales and Queensland, and so far inland as to escape the breeze by which their coasts are visited ; for although by " South Australia" we should, in the southern hemisphere, naturally under stand that portion of Australia which was furthest from the tropics, yet it is a curious fact that the whole colony of Victoria is to the south of Adelaide, and that nearly all the northernmost points of tlio continent now lie within the country misnamed " South Aus tralia." The immense northern terri tory, being supposed to be valueless, has g...

WET BLANKETS. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 20 March 1869

WET BLA.NKETS. THERE is no event or vicissitude of life for which the wet blanket is not pre pared. He is equal to every emer gency. If you £tre lucky enough, to hear in his presence that you have inherited a round sum of money, he will sympathisingly suggest that you ouo-ht to have had more, and will likewise take occasion k> express his conviction that you will find the tes tator has left you to pay the legacy duty. This, he adds with arithmetical ,. precision, is ten per cent, in the case of a stranger--tuhioh you cvo -and . five hundred3out of your five thousand are gone at once. Is it your inisfprtune to have a highly-prised relative or fiiend in the hazard of death, and the phy sician permits you to entertain strong hopes of his ultimate recovoiy, the wet blanket devoutly trusts the doctor will be right, but lor his own pare he never knew of a person getting really better under such circumstances. If you are about to publish a book, he tries to dissuade you from putting you...

STOCK REPORT. ADVERTISER Office, Friday Evening. The drought has becomc ct stern reality, and iUs cruel rule is striking terror to the minds af stockholders in (ill parts oj the country. Surely the edict has gone forth, "there shall be no ihoit rain fall upon the face of the Earth." The large majority of stock, both sheep and cattle are, from sheer want, reduced to animated skeletons, The country from north to ooiifA, from east lowest, evidences the barrenness of the seasons. Many runs stilt are suffering from want of water. No rain, no appearance of rain. The season of frosl is fast approaching. The multitudes of stock must immediately ' leave their summer pastures in the moun tains. There is no indication of relief ; only a hard dry winter in the prospect. Stieh is the situation, and toe may with all seriousness repeat the question lohich is upon the lips, and written on the anxious face of every mamoe meet.

HAY. MR. JAMES FORSYTH'S REPORT:— [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 20 March 1869

HAY. MR. JAMES FORSYTH'S REPORT :- I AGAIN another week dryer and hotter than the last. Let us hope it is analagous to the Indian summer, that short period of fine waim weather occurring late in the Autumn, which on the American continent immediately precedes the rains and snows of winter. On the Laclilan the rapidly wasting water holes have at length given out, and for 50 miles above Thelangerin, the bed of the river is perfectly dry, and all stock have had to be removed i\ :-"i tfv: frontage. The thermometer has ranged as high as" 106° in the shade this week, in Hay. As a matter of course there is little or nothing doing in stock; but from the number of inquiries, there is evidently "a good time coming." I have inquiries for well-bred ewes in lambs, a description of stock that has been hitherto entirely neglected this season. I have placed a few more travel ling sheep under offer, to local buyers. FREEHOLD properties are more sought for, and town allotments in Hay, for building pu...
