Parliamentary Summary. LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY. TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 20. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express and Murrumbidgee District Advertiser — 3 March 1866
varliarneutavrn Qummarp.• LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY. TUESDAY, FLBRUARY 20. MfR. Martin explained the course proplosed to be taken by the Government in the conduct of the public business. He would not pledge himself to any of the questions before the House and he invited them not to press on any measure but such as was of urgent necessity. The Government only wished to proceed with the estimates which would be brought down next week, and to pass dne or two measures which would admit of no delay. The Government did not propose to dtc upon the report of the heads of departments with: reference to retrenchment. The report was made under extreme pressure and its tendency was to shift the responsibility of the proposed reductions from the Government by whom it ought properly to be borne. The land reserves had been made without a proper official report, and the Govern. ment did not propose to take any action in the matter until after full and complete investigati ?. had been made. They were det...

[PRn OUR OWN b E consPOr ENT.] THE fortuneo of this gold-field are again in the ascendant, a rich.run of gold having been found at a short distance from the North Caledonian Lead. Messrs. Mathieson and party are the prospectors. The depth of sinking is 109 feet, and there are four feet of wash-dirt in the shaft.

Local Intelligence. THE NAVIGATION OF THE MURRUMBIDGEE. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express and Murrumbidgee District Advertiser — 3 March 1866
.ocal Intelllgence. THE NAVIGATION OF THE MUBRUM BIDGEE. We .extract the following remarks from Mnr. Macleay's speech in the Legislative Assembly, in reference to his motion for placing upon the Esti mates, a sum of £3000, for removing obstructions to the navigation of the Murrumbidgee, between Gundagai and May:-In the Murrumbidgee. dis trict there were no Government roads, and below Wagga Wagga not a farthing had ei'er been ex pended. A large expenditure was, no doubt not necessary, for in summer the ground was hard, and in winter the country' was impassible. It was seldom that he troubled the House with matters of this kind, but, in this case, knowing the necessity. for the expenditure, and finding that the Govern ment had no intention of placing any sum upon the Estimates for this purpose, he had conceived it his duty to place the motion upon the paper. It was important that the Murray, Murrumbidgee and Darling, should be rendered navigable. This had, in a great measure, been eff...

FURTHER OUTRAGES BY BUSHRANGERS IN ARALUEN. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express and Murrumbidgee District Advertiser — 10 March 1866
FURTHER OUTIAGES BY BUSHRANGERS IN ARALUEN. A senses of the most daring outrages which have ever occurred in the district, and indeed perhaps equalling in atrocity any outrage for which this colony has been so long notorious, was enacted in Aralnen on Friday night last. From the many conflicting statements which are-abroad, we have been put to considerable trouble in arriving at the real version of the affair, and we can only sum up the informa tion which we have received without vouch ing for its correctness. We may state, how ever, that independent of the minor descrep ancies to be expected in the different versions of any event of this nature, there are two dis tinct stories as to the main leading features of the affray between the. police and the bush rangers, and we will give these versions in contradistinction with each other without giving an opinion upon either of them, leaving this to those in authority whose business it has been to get at the bottom of the matter. We learn...

MR. ROBERT SCOTT ROSS. AT the Yass Police Court, on the 28th ult., Robert Scott Ross, who lately contested the Yass Plains electorate with Mr. Isaaces, was brought up and charged with obtaining goods under false pretences. Mr. Allman, for the prosecution, stated that the defendant had gone into the shop of Mr. Shipway, and, taking a fancy to some cloth which was on the counter, obtained a quantity of it from Mr. Shipway, and tendered a cheque drawn on the City Bank, Sydney, in payment for it. He would shew that the de fendant never had any funds in the City Bank. The learned gentleman also stated that the defendant had drawn cheques in favor of several other parties on the same Bank. Defendant expressed a wish that the Bench would consider one case at a time. Mr. Allman said it was his intention to conduct each separately, and, for the prosecu tion, called Joshua Shipway, who deposed : Mr. Ross came to my shop on the 19th February.
