DENILIQUIN. Friday, April 27, 1860. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express and Murrumbidgee District Advertiser — 5 May 1866
UEMILIQUIN....... u : ha *e Friday, April 27, 1800. iTHEn has been no improdemdent in the.stock market aince our nlast:; Ihoslight rains which fell here have freshened up the ';ountry, but they must speedily be followed;by more if wenio to have abundance of grass. From accounts received, we gather that the rain was heavier to the eastward than elsewhere,, whilst at Wentworth, as has invariably been.the case this sum mer. the fall was of the lightest.'

INAUGURATION OF THE STATUE TO THE LATE PRINCE CONSORT. HARDLY any circumstance in modern times is at the same. time so full of instruction as to our national character, and of encouragement as to our colonial future, as the solemn cere monial in the metropolis last Monday week. That, in the most remote of 'British posses sions, thirty thousand people should be as sembled round a beautiful memorial, erected by themselves, of the virtues of one concern ing whom they never could have had any knowledge save that common to the whole world, of his tenderness, his loyalty, his ihmnfaity, is certainly a remarkable and im pressive.fact. Placed in a situation which al most bars the passage of profound and gene rous sympathies, which assuredly resists the advancoa of all enthusiasm, the great ?nnlnsc, in whose honour and for 'the perpetuation of whose memory the statue has been recently erected in Sydney, succeeded in winning the admira tion of all minds and the love of all hearts.

In the month of January last, the Liverpool steamer Columbian, with a cargo on board valued at £50,000, sunk off the coast of France in twenty-five fathoms of water..
