FAT CATTLE.- 1000 wore penned up au&lt;l sold to-day, a large proportion of them being from good to primo, although the average of the various lota was hardly up to last , week's quality. There was a fair attend ance of butchers, and at the opening sales, the competition was very brisk, at an advance of 20a per head, but towards the cloao, prices receded to about last week's roteq ; the market, however, throughout was quite as wo expected, and we notice that this season there has not been tlio usual depression in the beef market during J^got, We quote - best bullocks, from ? 10J 10ato 11? 5s; second, from 7^ to SI 10s ; inferior, 41 10s to 61; best cows, from' 61 10s to 11 17s 0(1, a few up to 81.

THE WOOL TRADE OF 1868. (FROM MR. HELMUTH SCHWARTZE.) [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 24 March 1869
THE WOOL TRADE'OF 1S38. . (l'HOM MR. HELMUTII SCHVA.RTZE.) .THE wool trade lias a feature of its own quite as important iu its effects as any extraneous circumstances. This is the yearly increase in the production, which goes on independently of good or bad trade, and which must be taken into account when the results of the year are estimated. For, sup posing the increase in one year to be 20 per cent., the result for the trade would have to be pi'onouivced favourable, even if prices had declined a littleit being clear that the consumption of wool cannot of itself regularly increase 20 per cent. - If it does increase so much, it is because of the stimulus of a pro portionately cheaper price, which brings the article within the reach o£ a lower stratum of the population, or to a wider range of appli cation, and thus, as it were, create a new consumption which before lay dormant. The question of over-production is involved in this. If by this word be meant that more wool is produced t...

BREWSTER AND TREBECK'S REPORT. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 24 March 1869
BREWSTKR AN'D TUKDKCK'S LTKL'ORT. Btation'S.-There is a better demand for good cattle properties, and for any such, if ?well situated, full prices are obtainable. We noticed a strong tendency to increased confidence in this description of investment, as likely to prove remunerative. The de mand for sheep runs is very limited, aud although there are a few buyers for choice properties, yet the general impression is that a different system altogether of sheep farming must lie adopted before a re munerative return can bo expected from a very large proportion of the stations in New South Wales and Queensland. The points to which the attention of wool growers will have to be especially directed are first, fencing, so as to rcduce expendi ture, a general and systematic annual cull ing of all existing Hocks, thus getting rid of the inferior stock, and then introducing the best acclimatised blood suitable to the character of the country occupied. Persons who some few years ago commenced shee...
NARANDERA. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 24 March 1869
NARATTOERA. [FEOM OtTH OWN CORRHSPONDEKT.] Tint country about liere is in a deplorable state ; the beginning of the cud is evident from the cai-cases in every direction, and with a very large number of the wretched looking animals prowling about, it is merely a matter of time as to when they will add to the already large numbers of dead ones. _ On two cattle stations in the immediate neigh bourhood, I hear, it is the entire duty of most of the hands to drag out of the water holes the unfortunate animals too- weak to get out of them without assistance, and that help has to be given day after day to the same cattle. Iu the event of our having a frost before rain, which is, from present appearances, quite likely, the result will bo fearful: there will be a large scope of un stocked country in this neighbourhood in the spring. Sheep are prowling about again, both up and down the river, how they manage to exist is truly surprising. Our Court of Petty Sessions, hold on Thursday last, the ...

M:r0p Mir.ggir g^frerthcr " Tills Is true liberty, when frccborn men, Having to advise tho public, may apeak free." MILTON. WEDNESDAY, MARCH 24, 18G9. WITH the present week will probably terminate one of tbe most profitless Sessions on record. It has been re markable for nothing, except, perhaps, the virulence of party feeling1, and the factiousness of the Opposition. " Scenes," common enough in all Sessions, have never been more fre quent, and hon. gentlemen have never more highly distinguished themselves in those desperate single combats in which the oratory of the gutter takes the place of the filth of the same locality.

THE AUSTRALIAN MEAT QUESTION. Ox Tuesday evening, Jan. 19, a represen tative meeting of artisans from various large London films and their wives was held at the stores of the Australian Meat Importing Agency, at Norton Folgate. for the purpose of testing, on behalf of their fellow .working men, 'the viands imported from the Austra lian colonies. Dr. B. W. Richardson, F.R.S., presided, and among the stewards Were Mr. G. F. Vcrdon, C.B., the agent-general of Victoria; Mr. T. S. Dutton, the agent general for South Australia; Mr. W. C.

BALLARAT LIVE STOCK MARKET. MESSRS NORMAN R. MACLEOD AND CO.'s REPORT:— [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 24 March 1869
BALLA.RAT LIVE STOCK MARKET. MESSRS NORMAN* R. MAULEOD AND CO.'S REPORT : FAT CATTLE.-S(32 were entered for yester day's sale, being a larger supply than was anticipated, one or more lots having come to hand without being advised. The quality generally was good, though not prime, and a small proportion was also in ferior. Buyers were numerous, ami among them we noticed several from up-conn try diatricts, who do not usually attend this market; this with the previous short sup ply, caused an active demand and satis factory sales, though last week's prices were not maintained ; the decline being nearly equal to the advance then quoted. Quotations-Best pens bullocks, SI 10s to 10Z; second Gi 10s to SI; medium and in ferior quality, from 31 10s, FAT SHEEP.-9,039 came to hand this week, consisting in about equal proportions, of good wethers, ewes, and inferior sheep of both sexes.

EXPEDITION AGAINST THE FLYING FOXES. (From the Singleton, Times,) IN our last issue -we reported briefly the result of the bunt after the flying foxies at Black's Mountain, between Singleton and Mount Royal, which took place on the morning of Thursday I ? last. The excursion, as was anticipated, was of particular interest, we were therefore anxious to get as full and . authentic an account of the day's pro ceedings as possible, and through the I goodness of one of the shooting party we have not been disappointed, as shown by the following capital sketch of the enterprise :-"I send, as you requested, a particular account of our excursion against the flying foxes. As you are aware, we advertised to start at 5.15 a.m., but although many of those who volunteered to go were awakened at half-past 4,1 am sorry to say that only two residents of the town of Singleton were ready at 6 o'clock.

REMARKABLE CASE OF BODY SNATCHING BY A LOVER. (From the Nashville Press, December 30.) [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 24 March 1869
REMARKABLE. CASE OF BODY SNATCHING BY A LOVER. ' (From the Nashville Press, December 30.) THE strangest case of thieving which J we ever heard of took place in the ad- i joining'county of Cheatham, a few days ago. The narrative, as we have heard of it, is simply this :--A few miles from Ashland, and not far from the Cumber land River, live a family named White, who are in, what is there considered, comfortable circumstances. On Christ mas eve a young girl, some fourteen years old, died in the house, after a brief illness. She was not long home from an edacationa linstitute in Indiana, which she was forced to leave by reason of an unaccountable indisposition. The house of the Whites is situated in a rather remote section, , so that the night following the decease of the young lady there were no visitors to watch up with the mourning family save one, a young gentleman named Higgins, who had come on horseback in the early part of the day to visit the sick girl. He had visited her, befo...

PRIZE OF ONE HUNDRED G-UINEAS J-'OIi THE BEST ESSAY ON THE LAND QUESTION. IT is granted on all sides that the Laud Law requires amendment : the Squatter declares it j the Freo-selector admits it; and the author of the jjresent 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 has been, in a state of chaos. Opinions, in short, or "notions" which pass for opinions, are as virions 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 the true from the false, the politically sound from the politically plau sible, and if possible to evolve from the mass of contradictions that happy golden mean o...
