DENILIQUIN. Friday Evening, March 2, 1866. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express and Murrumbidgee District Advertiser — 10 March 1866
DENILIQUIN. Friday Evening, March 2, 1806. The uncertainty of the weather is still a cause of some anxiety to station-holders and dealers in stock. Nothing tends so much to" unsettle the minds' of, all parties in these pastoral districts as a variablo season. This summer will be remembered as one of the most tantalising character. " One' day, we have suffocating heat-hot sulphurous blasts, while the very next may be chilly and damp, promising heavy rain, which ap parently is blown away with a strong wind. We have had, since our last issue, weather of this kind; the thermometer has ranged as high as 114° in the shade during the day, and has fallen upwards of 40° in a few hours. We have had no rain in Deniliquin since our last; and local stock agents report that, in consequence, transactions in stock are still pending which would, in all probability, be •completed if we had more rain. Reports speak favorably of an abun dance of grass on most of the runs in the southern part of Riverin...

COCKINDINA RACES. TnIs little meeting which came off on Saturday last, on the usual course, was very well attended by the lovers of the turf, and was brought without either accident or dispute to a most successful termination. The first event upon the card was a matchlbetween Mr. Post's Steersman, (late Brown Charley), 5 yrs., and Mr. Crisp's Whalebone, 6 yrs., for £40, two miles, one event, weight for age. The betting at starting was 2 to 1 on Steersman. THE RACE. At tile fall of the flag Whalebone jumped off with the lead, but was soon collared and passed by Steersman. The two horses then ran almost stride for stride till within about a quarter of a mile from home, when Whalebone fell back a little, but immediately answered to a call from the whip. and gained again upon his rival, a touch from the whip however, put Steersman upon his mettle, and condition telling upon Whalebone he fell to the rear and Steersman won by a length and a half. SECOND RACE. Maiden Plate of £7, one mile ...

Hopes are now strongly entertained that the worst of the season is overoccasional showers serve to refresh the soil, grass everywhere springing up, and nature once more putting on her garb of' green. From the stock. reports, too, you will see signs of increasing activityamongst travelling cattle, and the butchers here are looking forward to giving us a plentiful supply of fresh meat, which, althoughl never actually wanting, the quality has, at times, been somewhat inferior. The chief talk, for the last few days, has been the advent and performances of Madame Carandini and suite, who, on Friday and Saturday last, fa vored us with two as excellont concerts as one could reasonably wish to hear.

RIVERINA AND SEPARATION. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express and Murrumbidgee District Advertiser — 10 March 1866
RIVERINA AND SEPARATION. Tue unfavourable reply which has been re ceived from the Imperial Government, in answer to the petitions from Riverina for separation, has no doubt caused considerable satisfaction to Sydney and centralisation politicians. The inhabitants of the districts around the metropolis are naturally averse to any further dismemberment of the colony. and will be pleased to find that the Home authorities have utterly discountenanced the separation agitation in Riverinn. They will however, perceive that Mr. Gardwell, in his dispatch fully recognises the "inconvenience" -to adopt his own mild way of putting the case---to which the inhabitants of this p.ortion. of" the colony are subjected by their distance from the seat of Govern ment. He admits the inconveniences, but he objects to the .method' proposed of removing them. . The people of Riverina feel their grie vances acutely i they know that t'heyamount to a great deal more than mere inconveniences; they see thait thei...

The annual -matriculation of students 'at University, has taken place. - The flock-owners have sent a deputation to the Chief Secretary to recommend the creation of Pastoral Boards, similar to Shire Councils.

Parliamentary Summary. LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY. TUESDAY, JULY 27. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express and Murrumbidgee District Advertiser — 10 March 1866
LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY. TUESDAY, JULY 27. IMn. Macpherson moved that the House on Friday go into Committee to consider an ad dress to the Governor praying his Excellency to recommend the appropriation of a sum of £28,000. annually, for defraying the expense of public worship. The hon. member gave full particulars of the present distribution of the vote for the clergy. Ho only proposed to extend the principle of State-sin to districts which were thinly peopled, and were unable to support a minister of religion, and a bill which he was prepared to introduce, should the principle embodied in his resolution be affirmed, would embody his views, though he was not pledged to its details.-Mr. Pid dington opposed the motion, which he con tended was not one of principle, but one of expediency. The motion was inopportune, being at the end of the Session when not half the members were present, but being willing to allow its being fairly discussed, he would move the previous question as an amendni...
Forbes. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express and Murrumbidgee District Advertiser — 10 March 1866
[aROM OUR OWN CORRESPOHDEST.] THEm want of another heavy fall of rain is beginning to be felt in this part of the cdlony, thanks to the last copious downfal, there is no scarcity of grass, but on many stations the water has already dried up, rendering it necessary in some. cases to again temporarily abandon runs which had lately been reocoupied. Mr. Walker, of the great squatting firm of Brown and Walker, arrived in Forbes from Melbourne on Friday last, and is engaging bands, . so I understand, to go on with the extensive dam making, race cutting and other works commenced last year at the Melrose station, and which were necessarily suspended for a time through the drought. The new lead (Mathieson's) is being vigorously and hopefully worked, but no additional shafts rye yet' bottomed, nor have the prospectors had nmy further washing since that reported in my last com. munication. The prospectorsonthe "Royal Stan. dard" bottomed on the reef on Monday, and are now driving on a stiff di...
