THE LEECH AS A BAROMETER. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 5 April 1879

THE LEECH AS A BAROMETER. I The great Dr. Jenner himself admits the claims of the leech to be regarded as something better tliau a disgusting I little blood-sucker. In enumerating in verse the various recognised weather prognosticators of his time, he says : — 'The leech disturbed is newly risen quite to the summit of his prison.' Whoever believes in the intelligence aud shrewd observation of the poet Cowper must likewise believe in the leech as an animated barometer. In a letter to Lady llesketh, in 1 780, Cow per says : — ' Saturday it thundered, last night it lightened, and at two this morning I saw the sky as red as a city in flames could have made it. I have a leech in a bottle that foretells all the prodigies aud convulsions of nature. Not, as you will naturclly conjecture, by articulate utterances or oracular notices, but by a variety of gesticula tions which here I have not room to give an account of. Sfiiuce it to say that no change of weather surprises him, aud that in poi...

(From a Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 5 April 1879

(From a Correspondent.) The weather is fine aud grass good. The river has been up, and the steamer Coorong lias beeu here with her barge loading timber for down stream. We had a meeting here on tbe 31st ult., called by advertisement in the Government Gazette, to appoint trustees for the Naraudera Town Common, Mr. J. L. King in the chair. The candidates were iu several instances proposed and seconded in their absence, but those elected happened to be present. The result of the election is that Messrs. King, Rogers, Elwin, Foley, and M'Mahon were elected iu the order named. The chairman was requested to forward the result to the proper quarter. By the way, you ought to give us fair play in the matter of railway distances. I fancy that your leader of the 29th ult. would lead people to believe that the line via Wagga from Hay to Sydney was some 24 miles the. shortesa. Now, I don't suppose you mean to maintain this, I only say that your last leader apparently means it. ; Allow me to corr...

NARANDERA. (From our Correspondent.) The weather continues fine in the day, but tbc evenings and mornings are exceedingly chilly, necessitating the lighting of fires which (jives things a wintry aspect. The Murrumbidgee fell rapidly for a couple of days since my last letter, and is now slowly subsiding. It is now about IS inches above summer level.

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 5 April 1879

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. Cricket Match. — A match has boen arranged for this afternoon— the Bankers aud Solicitors v. All-comers. ' The sittings of the Cirouit Court may interfere somewhat with the success of the game, but it is to be hoped that those who are not absolutely pre vented will take part. Considering that the club is now appealing for public support to an amateur concert in aid of its funds, it should surely show some vitality — a phase wliich it has not exhibited for a long time past. PiiOMGRAPns of Criminals. — Upon the couviction of Merrin for attempted burglary at Narandera, Sir William Manning was informed by the police that the man was the associate of bad characters, besides which it was hinted that he had been convicted in Victoria. His Honour suggested that the police authorities here should cmumuuicate with the Victorian Government asking that photographs of criminals should be sent here, as is done in the case of the Border towns. The fact of the town being the cen...

LOTTERIES. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 5 April 1879

LOTTERIES. Ik it had not been for the notoriety which the magnitude of the Paris Exhi bition lottery has lately conferred upon that species of speculation or adventure, one could hardly suppose that a similar scheme, however benevolent might be the objects of its promoters, could have been seriously mooted m tins country. That the hard-headed Scotchman above all should have been disposed to favour so mad a project seems almost incredible; yet, had it not been for tbe proposal to set up a lottery in aid of the share holders in the City of Glasgow Bank, we should probably have heard nothing of the lottery in aid of the sufferers by the failure of the West of England Bank. Doubtless the facts that the Paris Exhibition lottery has been almost as widely puffed in this country as in France ; that the sale of tickets, though clearly illegal, has been openly carried on without let or hindrance on j this side of the water ; and that pur chasers of them may be numbered by thousands, induced p...

BUSHRAJSTGING IN QUEENS LAND. On tbe 19th February two men rode up to the store of Messrs O'Brien and Hunt at Gillbeiton, says the Courier. Both are well known as residents of the outside goldficlds and Never Never pastures. Their appearance inspires terror in stockowners ; their departure is iisimllv nonniniiMiiied hv a train of complaints of missing horses. 'Jim the Native7' is the soubriquet under which one rejoices, and 'Jiin' is de scribed by his friends as 5ft Gin or Tin ill height, with bow legs, and a Panama hat, as the most noteworthy surroundings. 'Jim's' mate, on the other hand, whose identification — though suspected — is not clear, is a fair man, of whom, in the absence of further evidence, it would be unjust to say more.
