PASTORAL NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 23 April 1879

PASTORAL NOTES. A simultaneous sale of expired and for feited leases of runs was held in all the districts of Queensland on Thursday last. Most of the runs were taken by their former leaseholders at the upset price of £2 per annum. Only four went at figures above that amount, and in several there were no bids. The whole is regarded as rather a bad saie. Mr. Clibborn sold privately, on account of Mr. F. Wentwortli, a sister to Goldsbrough and a brother to Robinson Crusoe, for 101)0 guineas each, to Mr. J. S. Smith. Messrs. Shelley Bros., of Walla Wallah station, near Forbes, have purchased 10,000 ewes from Messrs. Oliver Bros, and Co., of Melrose. Mr. E. G.

THE AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY'S EXHIBITION. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 23 April 1879

THE AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY'S EX HIBITION. From tlie JUcIto we learn that tbe Metro politan Exhibition for 1879 of the New South Wales Agricultural Society was npeued on Monday last by his Excellency the Acting Governor, Sir Alfred Stephen, at tlie Exhibi tion building, Prince Alfred Park. It was fmrail until the last few weeks th^t the proximity of the great International Exhibi tion would have affccted the Agricultural Show prejudicially, but such has not proved to be the ease. No show for the last 10 years has excelled this in the number aud merit of its exhibits, or, indeed, so far as can at present be judged, iu the measure of public patronage accorded to it. The exhibits number 1700, and have been entered in good order. They have been so judiciously classified and arranged that visitors will find no difficulty in inspecting any particular exhibit or in compating it with others of the kind. The Sj'ducy correspondent to th cGoutbuni Ifcrakl gives particulars of the various ex hibit...

Mr. Graham Berry is a fortunate man, he is, as luck goes, one man in ten thousand, and lie must lie supremely happy to find tliat his public career has culminated in such glory. A visit to England, a dinner with English poli tical celebrities, a chat with FIELD, with r chance of knighthood, and a notoriety second only to that of Mr. Edward Keli.y and his associates, these form the rewards of bis political life and compensate hi m for all the incon venience and trouble he has had in revolutionising Victoria, and pandering to the mob. Barren as the results of his mission have been, his love of the theatrical, and his pruriency for noto riety has been gratified, and Mr. Berry is satisfied, and we presume those whom Jte deluded into sending him home are also pleased. The colony of Victoria has not been benefitted by this visit to England, but what of that, Mr. Berky has received advantage, and been glorified, and that will be communi cated to the body politic. Like all mob-leaders, he l...

HATFIELD BUSHRANGERS. The Hatfield bushrangers were brought up at Deniliquin on Saturday for sentence, and appeared anxious and subdued. Hobbs made a statement that he bad been a sailor for nineteen years, and was unfortunate. He once narrowly escaped being burnt to death in a ship that was lost ; and on another occasion fell from the topgallant mast. He thought it would have been better if the Lord had taken him then than that he should come to the gallows at last He admitted his presence at the fight before the capture, but did not, he said, use firearms, although a rifle was close to him. He said that Beres ford fired at him after he surrendered, aud when he had his hands up. Power galloped past, and also fired at him. If lie had to die, he hoped to be forgiven. Tbe other prisoners made no statement. His Honour said it was sad to see prisoners in such a position, especially three being so youthful ; but they had chosen bad careei-s.

Illness of David Henry. — We are in formed (says the Daily Telegraph) that the Minister of Justice has caused full enquiry to be made respecting the illness of David Ilenry, and that the nature ef the medical information b.e nas received is not sucb as would justify him in recommending the Governor to disturb the sentence of the Court. From what we can learn, the report made to the Minister leads to the conclusion that Henry's illness, although serious, is not of such a dangerous character as the outside public have beeu ted to suppose, and as there appears to be no immediate probability of him dying in prison, as was at first repre sented, the Minister does not feel called upon to recommend either Henry's release or a mitigation of his sentence.

The Land Bill. Which authority are we to believe? Mr. Farnell, who has twice been a Minister for Lands, told us iu his speech the other day that most of the selections had changed hands. Mr. Day, who is reputed to be an authority on the art of tree selection, says tliat 'J i per cent, in his electorate are in first hands. Mr. M'Elhoue, who is a free-selectors' cham pion, says that not one-fourth or one fifth are are still in bona fide holding. Sir. Garrett, who has also been a Minister for Lands, denied the state ment of Mr. Farnell, and said that, from his own knowledge, in his own district, the transfers were few and bona fl.de. So far as that electorate is concerned, there is no reason to doubt the accuracy of his information, because it is not a squatting district, and it is in the natural agricultural areas that selection has been most successful and least in jurious. But in the squatting districts how does the matter stand 1 If there were no great n amber of transfers, how com...
