A TALE OF THIS BUSH. (From Once a Week.) [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 7 April 1869
A TALE OF THIS BUSH. (From Once a Week.) I ARRIVED in Melbourne in Jane, 1852, at which time scenes were to be wit-. jiessed sucli as, I believe, were never -witnessed in this world before. .Not very many months had elapsed since the discovery of the Victorian Gold Melds; but those months had sufficed to crowd the harbour with noble -vessels, all of which were almost -entirely deserted, and to crowd the 'dty with a collnvies of vice, of' ruffianism, of horrors, beyond all that the most active imagination could have previously conceived. Every third or fourth person you met in the densely packed street was either drank or nearly so. Every twenty or thirty yards yon would meet the Tasmanian felon with his hellish scowl, and the Californian digger with his ready bowie-knife iat his belt. Having lately come from home, where I had been accustomed to .associate with the better class, it could hardly bo expected that I should at once fathom the depth of villany . contained in the breasts o...

GENERAL NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 7 April 1869
' GENERAL NEWS. A CASE OF "NOBBLING" A RACEHORSE. -At tho'Molbourno Autumn Meeting, which commenced on the Flemington course, on Saturday last, an incident occurred which verifies off the stage a scene from the drama of the "Flying Scud," and is thus related ?in the Argus of Monday :-"It appears that after the last race on Flemington course, on Saturday, Mr. J. Wilson's br. g. Gondolier, who had run in the Ascot Vale Stakes, when on the road to town betrayed unmistakable symptoms of having been poisoned, and dropped to the ground in fearful agony. 'With somo difficulty he was got as far as the British Hotel, and, Mr. Wilson being sent for, found the liorae so bad that he imme diately gave orders for his destruction. It seems that oil'the night previous, Mr. Wilson had fears that an attempt would be made to "get at" Gasworks, and taking a hint from the drama of the "Flying Scud," trans ferred Gondolier from his box to that occu pied by Gasworks. It is now believed that in the night s...
DALMAHOY CAMPBELL AND CO.'S REPORT. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 7 April 1869
DALMAHOY CAMPBELL AND CO.'S REPORT. EAT CATTLE.-1044 were disposed of to-day, being a larger supply tlian was looked for, owing to one draft from the north (of very fair quality for that quarter) coming forward unexpectedly. There was a good attendance of buyers, including several from the country, who bought freely, and although sales were rather dull at the commencement, the competition brightened up towards the latter part of the market, and prices were higher by from 15s to 20s per head at the close. We quote-best bullocks, from 10? 10s to 112 12s Od ; a few extra up to 1425s ; second, from 82 to 92; inferior, from 42 10s to 01; best cows, from 62 108 to 72 5s j some extra prime, up to 10210s ; second, from 4210s to 5210s ; inferior, from 32 up. FAT SHEEP.-For this week's market about 20,000 were entered, but in consequence of several lots being sold outside, only 16,240 were yarded. Among these thero was a fair proportion of good useful mutton, but very few of prime quality or ...
NARANDERA. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 7 April 1869
JSTAIIANDERA. [FROM: OUR OWY CORRESPONDENT.] AT length the long hoped and prayed for rain has fallen, and in such substantial quantity as to remove our worst fears for at least some time. . I hear no les3 than seven inches of rain have fallen down the river since I last wrote. In this neighbourhood, water-holes usually supplied during high floods by the river and into which rain was never before known to place more than a foot of water, have this last week been filled, in many instances having a depth of sixteen feet. Already a wonderful change has taken place in the appearance of the country, and should frosts keep off for two or three weoks, grass will be abundant out back, and those pleasant and welcome visitors, the travelling sheep will have comfortable quarters all the way down the river-that is, if they do not discover that too frequent visits have worn their welcome out. Changes arc about to take place down here, Mr. Henry Phillips, is on Wednesday next, I believe, to make a...

Owing to the welcome fall of rain, which con tinued steadily all day, the attendance seemed smaller than usual, though not in reality so, for all those present were buyers ; still many from the country were absent who might otherwise have been there. Sales opened at fully last week's rates, afterwards improved a shade, and declined again towards the close ; but on the whole prices were without much altera tion. Quotations-Bust pens bullocks, 11/ to 131 17s Cd (a few extra weights sold singly up to 182 5s) ; second, Si to 101; medium quality, 02 to 11 10s; inferior, from 41.
