Forbes. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express and Murrumbidgee District Advertiser — 17 February 1866
4P?orbe0. [FROM OUR OWN CORRnESPo ENT. THERE is very little news of special importance to be communicated from this place at the present moment. No rain has fallen since the general downfall about three weeks' since, and the country already feels the want of a repetition of the dose. The Forbes correspondent of the Sydney Mlorn ing Herald, respecting whose identity every person here is perfectly acquainted, has for several months past persistently misrepresented the state of this gold-field in his weekly telegrams, and other com munications. It has no doubt appeared stranige to the people even of Wagga WVagga, if tloy have ever paid attention to the Herald's Forbes corres pondence, that a gold-field maintaining a popula tion of four or five hundred miners, and where the escort retairns have ranged from 800 ounces to 1400 ounces per month during the past year, averaging 1000 ounces for six months past, can only boast of four payableclaims, including the Billibong and the Pinnacle-a c...

Local Intelligence. THE ADELONG MURDER CASE.—The woman Gil bert, who was tried at the Adelong police-court the other day, for the murder of her two children, and,,was then committed for trial ft the next Circuit Court in Wagga Wagga, arrived in town under escort on Tuesday last, and was immediately conveyed tothe gaol. The children were drowned in a tub in the cabin in wldich they resided with their mother- The eldest was four and-a-half, and the youngest two years of age. When they were discovered their beads were in the tub, which only contained six inches of water. One was quite black round the mouth, and the other had bitten his tongue completely through. The appearances led to the conclusion tlthat the children had met with foul play, but at the inquest the juryreturned a verdict of accidental death. The mother was, however, subsequently arrested and charged with wilful murder. From the evidence it appeared, that the mother was on very intimate terms with an Italian, who was de...

The ~Escene was most affecting. The King refiained calm and composed to the end. The press of all countries has been unanimous in lamenting this great loss to the Belgian na tionolf a monarch who, though by no means a model of private virtue, had, in the course of a long career of 75 years, been an example to all constitutibnal sovereigns.

Exolusive of this. number, there were about 800 head of stores disposed of yesterday, making the total quantity for the week up to about 1000 head. The supply was smaller than usual, but, in point, of quality, was the best we have had for some time past. Nearly the whole of the 700 passed through the yards on Monday were from good to prime; indeed, with the. exception of the stores before mentioned, there were none that could be called inferior. The demand was firm, and prices satisfactory, although not so high as they would have been had the proportion of good cattle been smaller than it actually was. We sold 243.

NATIONAL EDUCATION. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express and Murrumbidgee District Advertiser — 24 February 1866
NATIONAL EDUGATION. Ws copy the following paragraph from the Sydney snmmary supplied to the Goulburn Herald of the 10th instant:-In their anxiety to establish schools in parts of the colony where, no doubt, they were wanted badly enough, the Board of National Education have over-run the constable, and are now furced to retrench by cutting off the salaries of a number of the smaller schools, many of which had but recently been established an the faith of receiving aid from the board. This is a great pity. I have no doubt that the Board means well; bot their conduct, in this respect will be productive of much injury and some suffering. Having a fixed allowance, they had no right to exceed it. When shall we have a new com Iprehensive system in which there will not be the anomally of two Boards having, parhaps, three or four inferior schools in a place that can barely support one ? Receiving the statement as authentic, we echo the remark, "This isa great pity." But it will be a greater ...

Erourt of euatrter .eriono . WEDNESDAY, JULY 21, 1866. (Before His Honor Judge Francis.) The Court opened at 10 o'clock, -and to judge by the numbers present throughout the entire day, the proceedings must have been invested with an unusual degree of public interest. The only bar risters in attendance were Mr. Forbes (the Crown Prosecutor), and Mr. Stephen. The first case called on was one for SADDLE STEALING. Henry Hill was charged with stealing, on the 24th November last, one saddle the property of one Peter Halbesch. A second count charged the prisoner with being in possession of the saddle, knowingit to be stolen. The Crown Prosecutor briefly opened the case, and called Sergeant Carroll, who deposed he was senior constable at Wagga Wagga. On the 24th Nov., last at about 9 p.m., saw a man carrying a saddle near Mr. Tompson's store, at the rear of Gasse's hotel. It was moonlight, followed him and came up with him as he put the,saddle on a fence near the bank of the river. Prssoner...
