DENILIQU1N. :Friday, March 10,1800. The sun, together: vith'tho northerly winds, have gained the mastery over the springing grass, and the hopeful green has given place to the disheartening brown or brazen hue, as seen in sunshine or on cloudy days. A check has thus:been given to investment in stack, though there are still many buyers anxious to come to terms for young well-bred ewes. We do not hear of any transactions in. these; thley: are to be had for money, and it is prices alone which prevent busi ness. Buyers and sellors:kiow that fonr-and-twenty hours' rain would make a difference of 10 per cent. in prices, and hence owners who can hold do so for the rising market. We notice a sale by Messrs. Dalman. hoy, Campbell and Co. of 7100 owes, four and five years oldid, Messrs. Landale's, at 13s. Od. There is not much to be dreaded from loss of stock from starvation, for the present at all events. as the rains filled many water-holes in tho neighborhood of grass, which pre viously co...

¶Lobtl utlurumnbibgee. [PROM OUR OWN OO5RnnRESPODE5 T.) A-Tthis season of the year there is of course little of interest to detail in pastoral matters, and just at present there is even less than the ordinary quantity of matter for a letter available. Want of :rain:is still very severely felt on all hands; the fallswto have experienced having proved altogether insufficient to counteract in any degree the effects of.the'long~ drought, at' least as far as the Lower Murruisbldgee and Lachlan are concerned. It is true that in some of the bends on the more thinly stocked muns a slight amendment has been perccp 'tiblef and thert'is still fair grass in some parts of the back country, but for the most part tlie ground is as bare as a deal board or nearly so. Water in the back country might also almost be regarded as a vestige of creation were it not for the wells that are being sunk in all directions, and but for which ,the sheep owners umight long ere this have shut up shop:.

However, as sertions were made by one side,.and flatly contra dicted by the other, and the squabble ended wibh out, much satisfaction to either. party. Now, as the subscribers at the annual meeting assembled will form theproper tribunal forithaettlement of ay. vexed question (if suclh really exist) touqchine ,o boannagement of this useful institution, I would earestly direct their attention to the following'imr .port.ant. smatters : i.

A CHAPTER ON LIENS. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express and Murrumbidgee District Advertiser — 31 March 1866
A OHAPTER ON LIENS. So much. doubt exists as to what'really is "a lion" that we beg to lay before our readers a few legal authorities upon the subject, : The following is from Roscoe's Nisi.Prius Evi dence,in treating of actions for conversion or detention of goods. It is unnecessary for us to quote the different authorities. It sets out by 6tating that liens on goods may be either general or special, and then goes on: "a general lion may be proved either by evidence of an express agreement, or of the mode of dealing between the parties, or of the gendralusage of other persons engaged in the same employment of such notoriety as that it may fairly be nresunmed to be known'as' the owners goode. To establish a general lion by eviaence ofthe general usage, the witnesses outht'to be ancient, numerous and important.
