THE STATION AND THE FARM. SHEEP-FARMING IN SOUTH AMERICA. (From the Mark Lane Express.) [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 3 April 1869

THE STATION AND THE FARM. SHEEP-FARMING IN SOUTH AMERICA. ?(?F-rom tiic -Mark Lane Express.) When, we-consider the ? great . numbei' of sheep, in our pastoral colonies, which, according to the official, returns lately published, are 10,000,000 .in South Africa, and 43,500,000 in all Australia and New Zealand ; we cannot but feel surprised how largely these figures are exceeded by the sheep in the South American States. Climate, soil, and vast extent of pasturage, with long attention and progress have done much for Australian sheep-farming; but it would seem as if our colonies are being outstripped in the race . of production (at least as regards quantity) by their . South American rivals. The finer quality and better preparation of the Australian wool may compensate in soine degree by the higher prices ob tained. ' Sheep-farming, which for many years has been one of the chief occupations in the province of Buenos Ayres, is jrnow rapidly- extending through, the province, of Santa Ee,...

CONJUGAL TIFFS. (From the London Review.) [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 3 April 1869

CONJUGAL TIFFS. (From the London Review.) THE wonderful trials of temper im posed by matrimony can scarce ever ' be known to an outsider. The provo cative power of a woman, which is naturally considerable, becomes many degrees intensified by marriage. First of all, the intimacy of that mode of life renders her thoroughly ac quainted with all the weak points of; ; her lord. She knows exactly where to liurfc him most severely, and where to touch a raw place hidden from the rest of the world. There is no doubt that when Xantippe pitched crockery at; the sconce of her husband, she accom-j panied the missiles with jeers at the; ; poor man's doctrines. Milton, it is said,. suffered horribly from the tongue of his helpmate, and we can imagine her, not only hiding his pen and ink, but making fun of his verses. But these are historical cases where the battles; were of chronic occurrence. In real life people when married do not bark and bite. There are intervals of repose ?when the atmosphere...

CAPTAIN COOK'S STATUE. &A.YING- THE FOUNDATION' STONE BY II.R.n. . THE DUKE OF EDINBURGH. (From the Empire.) Tiie first practical step towards tlie erection of a statue in honour and memory of Captain1 Cook was taken on Saturday afternoon under circumstances which may well bo regarded as auspicious. The energetic action of the com mittee, and the liberal co-operation of the public having placed the former in a position to proceed at once with the construction' of the design Mr. Blackett had prepared, and the site being chosen, workmen were engaged, the foundation laid, and four blocks of Moruya granite, carefully chiselled, were brought to the spot. These blocks measure six feet long, and are two feet thick, each weighing about two tons.' Two others of greater size and weight have yet to arrive, to : lie placed at the sides of the basement which .will form a square of thirteen feet, being two feet in height. The stones which will top these again, will be of enormous size and...

F III ZE . - OF vW ". ; : ONE HUNDRED GUINEAS . " FOR THE BEST ESSAY ON ' THE LAND QUESTION. IT is grantel 011 all sides that the Land Law requires amendment : the Squatter declares it; the Free-selector admits it; and the author of the present Land Act at last confesses it. The nature of the amendment required must' he 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 various as there are iuterests 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 ...

INCORPORATION OF WAGGA WAGGA. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 3 April 1869

INCORPORATION OF WAGGA WAGGA. TIIE public meeting called by the Police Magistrate, at the request of several house holders, to consider the desirability of incor porating the'town and- suburbs, was held on Wednesday, at the Court-house. There was a large attendance, and a little before 12 o'clock, proceedings were commenced by the Police Magistrate, who declared the object for which the meeting had been convened. On the motion of Mr. F. A. TOMPSON, seconded by Mr. MAIR, Mr. Baylis was .voted to the chair. The CHAIRMAN' returned thanks for the honour the meeting had done him, and said the question was one in which they were all interested. He had often remarked that the lirst question strangers, asked when they visited the town was, "Why don't you in corporate ?" It had often been talked about, but it was now necessary that it should be done, and lie hoped that the ques tion would be discussed fairly and dispas sionately. Mr. ToairsoN said that, as this was a matter on which few peop...

MELBOURNE MEMS. .jiutoai OUIi OWN" COIIKKSI'ONDENT.] March 27tli, 18C9. THE Bribery Committee is still sitting, but Las come as yet to no conclusion. Much exception has been taken to the method in which the inquiry has been conducted, and to the bullying tone assumed by members. Mr. David Blair, for instance, has made him self noticeably forward in this particular, and has been somewhat severely handled by the press in consequence. It is customary with Mr. Blair to call refractory witnesses liars, and to abuse them into confession ; and some few have turned at bay and kicked against the prickB. The whole action of the Committee is commented upon ; in point of fact, it is nothing more than a Star Chamber, and its proceedings arc quite arbitrary.

Wagga Wagga Advertiser. "This is true liberty, when freeborn men, Having to advise the public, may speak fred." MILTON. SATURDAY, APRIL 3, 1869. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 3 April 1869

" This Is true liberty/ when freeborn men, Having to advise the public, may speak freiJl":! A , .MILTON. SATURDAY, APRIL 3, 18691 We heartily congratulate the town on the issue of the meeting of Wednesday last. The plunge, so long hesitated: at, has been taken at last, and Wagga Wagga stands committed to the com mon-sense policy of self-government. It cannot be said to be a " leap in the dark," for we have examples on every side of the advantages of a similar step on the part of other townships, and there can be no reason why municipal institutions should not be a's successful with us as with them. Some objection was taken at the meeting to the sud denness of the movement, and insinua tions, not in the best possible taste, were thrown out, that it was a cut and-dry affair, with some strong per sonal motive at the bottom. It. was, perhaps, only natural, tinder the circumstances, that- some such little ebullition of feeling should take place; but as the meeting treated it with, con te...

COMBANING. [FROM A CORRESPONDENT.] March 23. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 3 April 1869

COMBANING. [FROM A COUIiUSPONDENT.] March 23. IT is so long sinco I addressed you a lefctor for the press, that I shall ? not be surprised to be told that any communication from me is inadmissible. I might, indeed, have written to you oftoncr, and would have done so, but for the uncertainty respecting the post. You know, and I believe, have strongly animadverted upon, the deficiency of - postal communication this way. Shall we ever persuade the "Powers, that bo" to give us a little line ? I can't expect it during the present session, when .they are all in a fix about the repeal of the "Newspaper tax." When a tax is peremptorily required to be taken off at the close of the session of a moribund parliament, and the Ways and Means of the Ministry thus suddenly thrown into confusion, it cannot be expected that a concession -to the interests of this district, however small, will be made, if it involves expense. For my own part I do not see the impropriety of the newspaper postage; and in...

WOOL-WASHING AND SHEARING. (From the Dubbo Dispatch.) [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 3 April 1869

WOOL-WASHING AND SHEARING. (From the Dubbo Dispatch.) EXPERIENCE confirms the theory that " hot-water-soaking" and so-called " dry-spouting" is by far the best mode of cleansing wool. The plan for carrying out this operation must, of necessity, depend upon the site pur posed to be used; and the appliances to hand, or intended to be called into play, for lifting the necessary water. Supposing the site to be on a creek with a sloping bank, I suggest to sink a water-tight tank five feet deep, square at one end ; eight feet long at the bottom, and for two feet up the other end, then gradually sloping up to the top until twelve feet long ; sunk four feet, lengthways, near its edge. If the bank of the creek be steep, one :side of the tank will necessarily be sunk in the bank, the other exposed; therefore, it should be necessarily so | made. The slope at one end of the tank is for sheep to walk out on to a .platform or stage, twelve feet long by , five feet wide ; one side of which is to r...

HAY. MR. JAMES FORSYTH'S REPORT:— [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 3 April 1869

HAY. MR. JAMES FORSYTH'S REPORT : IT is with much pleasure I have to chronicle the utter annihilation of the drought. Such continuous and heavy rain as we have been blessed with, has not descended on the plains of Riverina for years. It commenced at Hay about mid-night on Wednesday, and by Friday morning over four inches had fallen. It re-commenced on Sunday afteanoon, and within twelve hours, about two more inches were shown by the gauge. Between the Murrumbidgee and the Billa bong the plain is covered with vast sheets of water all moving to the westward ; and I hear of dams' on Mungadal and Pevensey stations having given way. The weather is still close and warm, with indications of a further rainfall. The weather and the holidays combined have put a stop to busi ness for the present. Travelling stock will now return to their own runs; and most of the store cattle that were for sale have been withdrawn. 2000 head of Waljeer's cattle, coming up the river, will cross here in a day or...
