MELBOURNE MEMS. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] March 13, 1869. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 20 March 1869
MELBOURNE MEMS. [t'KOM OUR OWN OORHISSrONDEKT.] March 13, 1809. THE Dulce of Edinburgh liaa left us. Good society is of course tearfully tremulous-and Victorian-blue blood bewails itself while the daily papers teem with accounts of the presents, "remembrances," and thoughtful at tentions bestowed by H. R. H. upon all sorts of people. The Prince left Toorak shortly after noon on Monday morning last, and drove in one of his Excellency's carriages to Sand ridge. The road was crowded with persons who cheered vigorously as lie passed. Sand ridge was decorated with flags and the picra and houses were black with people. Just as the Dulce reached the landing stage, Mr. Moubrny, the mayor, rushed forward and on bolialf of the Melbourne citizens wished him a pleasant voyage. He then went down the steps to the Pharos, which-gaily decorated with bunting and containing a number of in invited guests-was lying alongside. Tlio little steamer then made for the Galatea amid much cheering. When on boa...

; THE! TURF". ST. rATRIClv'8 DAY KAO'H MEETING. TJIIS meeting passed off ratliurqiiiotly. Tha state of tlio times had .a Very pcrceptiblo offect on tlio attendance, which Was much smaller than the good Saint has bean accus tomed to see on similar occasions. However, those who did attend were Well rewarded for their trouble. The weather was magnificent, and the racing, generally speaking, very good. With one exception, all the events were well contested, there Wore no disputes, and, a rare thing on a country courso, whore the favorite amusement seems to be to try who is the greatest proficient in the art of reckless riding, no accidents. The grand stand was not very extensively patronised, notwith standing the reduction of the charge aud the admirable catering of Mr. Callaghan.

THE STATION AND THE FARM. CATTLE AND HORSES. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 24 March 1869
' THE STA TlOy AND THE FARM. CATTLE AND HORSES. , A correspondent of tlie Qaeenslander thus discourses on our cattle and horses. Speaking of the celebrated " Cowpasture hei'd," he tells us " they were old-fashioned, coarse, added to partly by an importation now and then from the old country, but principally by little buffalo cows from India:-a sad lot to begin with-but have since improved and become even, till we may safely say now the Australian cattle, as a whole, are the best out of England, the result simply of our graziers having, with rare exceptions, stuck to one type-viz., the shorthorn, many scions of the most famous short horn herds of England having been imported by our rich cattle holders, quite regardless of expense. Our horses, on the contrary, give a totally opposite result; and though, we may honestly boast that we have many very fine animals, yet the bulk of the Aus tralian horses are the veriest three cornered, cow-hearted duffers in crea tion, possessing neither s...
GOLDEN YOUTH. (From the New York Round Table.) [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 24 March 1869
GOLDEN YOUTH. fFrom, the New York Sound Table.) IN the first place, it may be asked in wliat respect a young man is superior to one of any other age. Physically, he is the in ferior of the man whose strength and vitality have attained their maximum ; mentally, he cannot compare with the middle-aged or the old, either in learn ing or experience. His mind, as well as his body, is in a gristly state. He is but an overgrown child, whose tastes for. toys and sugar-plums has trans formed itself into desires not so inno cent but scarcely loss infantile. The juvenile faults have been enlarged into manly vices. Women and horses oc cupy him instead of sweetmeats and playthings. The innocence of child hood has worn off, leaving only the foolishness which he does his best to hide by the affectation of a knowledge of the world ; and he spends his time in pursuits which, when not absolutely vicious, are profitless to the world and to himself. As to his mental capacity, it is of the smallest. It i...

VARIATIONS ON "ENOCH ARDEN." C To the Editor of the Pall Mall Gazette, ^ j SIR,-The incident you have quoted as a " singular variation on the ' Enoch Arden' romance " reminds me of an older one, to which you will per haps allow me to call attention as an authentic example of the most moral, raanly, English, and constitutional be haviour, under such "tolerable and riot-to-be-borne"" circumstances. It is mentioned in Lyson's "Environs'" as from an entry in the parish register of Bermondsey, A.D. 1604 : " The forme of a solemn© vowe made betwixt a man and his wife, Laving bene long absent, through which occa sion the woman beinge married to : another man [he] tooke her again as i follow etli : "THE MAN'S SPEACH.-' Elizabeth, my beloved wife, I am right sorie that I have so long absented mysealfe from fchee, whereby thou shouldst be occa sioned to take another man to be thy husband.
