MELBOURNE MEMS. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] April 17th, 1869. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 24 April 1869

-MELBOURNE MEMS. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.! . ;; . ; April 17tll, 1869. ON Tuesday, Mr, 0. E. Jones, tbo best abused man' in Mclbourno. made his first appearance iii the Legislative A ssembly Chamber. He was \inaccompanied;by any I1011, member, but Vale- significantly followed him closely. Having taken tlio customary oath amid a profound silonco, Mr. Jones took bis seat on the back benches immediately behind the Ministry. His defence, however, was reserved, and the consideration of ordinary business was proceeded with. It was rumoured throughout the town that the Ministry threatened, a resignation in consequence of the obnoxious clause in the report of tlio Bribery Committee. Tbe resolution pro posed by the Chairman of Committees, ex culpating Messrs. Francis and McCulloch from censure, was, however, brought on on Wednesday night, and was carried by a majority of 42 to 15. Some discussion was excited in outside circles by reason of the conduct of Messrs. Wrixon and Blair, who, fa...

COMBANING. [FROM A CORRESPONDENT.] [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 24 April 1869

COMBANING. [FEOM A CORRESPONDENT.] SINCE writing to you on the 23rcl March, we, in common with the rest of the colony, have been blessed with abundant rain ;*'thore is no scarcity of water now, and the grass is springing up everywhere. Several flocks of sheep have passed this way, homeward bound from their travels. .-..>< « ... At the Sebastapol Reef, I hear that build ing and other work is going on briskly. The six-acre lease next Hoffman and Ryan's, mentioned in my last, having followed the . lead farther down, has como upon richer stone, and this has been the cause of ail attempt by somo outsiders to "jump" the whole lease, on the ground or pretence that the lessees, having only twelve men at work instead of fourteen, had not fulfilled the condition of tho lease, and it was therefore forfeited. . But, as I understand that' the .two deficient men. are more than, fully represented by two drays and horses, I do: not see well how the "jumpers" can make: their case good....

MEAT PRESERVING. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 24 April 1869

MEAT PRESERVING. REFERRING to the late Australian Meat Banquet, the Daily News remarks : " Both beef and mutton came* to£'tablo perfectly sound and wholesome, and and would no doubt afford an agreeable alternative to salt provisions at sea. It would, however, be going very much too far to assert that as at present im ported this Australian meat is equal to the butchers' meat of this country, or at all as well adapted for general domestic use. No fault could be found with tho condition of either beef or mutton. Both were entirely' free from taint, and eaten cold some tins of both were by no means disagreeable. When the meat was heated, however, it ap peared to have lost almost all its original flavour; and some of the dishes were little better than fibre and grease. Great improvement is still required in the method of preserving meat in Aus tralia before it can be made an article of ordinary domestic consumption in this country. In times of famine, boned meat at 6d. or 7d. a pound ma...

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 24 April 1869

LO UAL IN TELLIGEN Oli.. - TTE STEAMBOAT COMPANY.-A meeting of the gentlemen, interested in this enterprise was held'on Wednesday last to hear the re port of the two delegates, Messrs. Chapman and Moxham, who retnrned from their visit to Echuca a day or two previous. The dele gates stated that they had inspected several steamers, but gave a decided preference to the Victoria, with her barge, which it will bo remembered were placed under offer some time ago by Mr. Leonard. It was resolved by the gentlemen present that a company should be forthwith formed with a capital of £3000 in thirty shares of £100 each ; aiul that the steamer Victoria and her barge should bo purchased from Mr. Leonard. A provisional Committee was formed,, and there can be no doubt that a few days will see the Wagga Wagga Iliver Steam-boat Company au fait accompli. It was rather a melancholy omen for the new company that the first attempted trip to AVagga Wagga of the seasonshould have resulted ina loss. The Rive...

THE STATION AND THE FARM. FENCING. (From the Dubbo Dispatch.) [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 24 April 1869

THE STATION AND THE FARM. FENCING. (From the Ditbbo Dispatch.. Fencing is a subject which occupies the minds of squatters in this district at the present time, quite as much as it ! did the minds of Riverine squatters j some five or six years back. It being a subject as important and interesting to the many as the few, in accordance with tho requests made to me, I give a slight sketch of my views upon it. Fencing, as regards cattle runs, is by far the most profitable improve ment that can bo adopted. By it the loss arising from cattle-store cattle are notoriously prone to work their way back to where they were bred is prevented ; and the expense of stock men and horses to attend the musters on distant runs, to which parts of a I herd may wander, forming a heavy j item, is saved to tho management. I . Another thing in favour of .fencing on cattle runs is, tho well-known fact i that, the wildest cattle become quiet ! very soon in paddocks, and fatten in a remarkably short time compare...

Wagga Wagga Advertiser "This is true liberty, when freeborn men, Having to advise the public, may speak free." MILTON. SATURDAY, APRIL 24, 1869. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 24 April 1869

" Tills is true liberty, when freeborn men, Having to advise tlio public, may speak free." MILTON. SATURDAY, APRIL 24, 1869. IT has often, been, said that this is a world of compensations. If we lose one tiling- we get another, and very often may profit by the exchange. In most cases whero. ruin follows loss, it is not tho misfortune itself that crushes bat the spirit in which it is met. It is not given, indeed, to every one to prove in his own case the sweet nses of adversity, and oat of the nettle loss to pluck the flower of profit. We are not all the heroes tho poet would make us, and in " the world's broad field of battle " for every brave man who does not know when he is beaten there are a hundrod cowards who turn tail with out any beating at all. But notwith standing a too general tendency to give in under ft sudden succession of misfortunes, or where difficulties seem insuperable, there are instances in numerable -where precisely opposite effects liavo boon produced-?whoro op...

LITERARY EXTRACTS. HUMAN TAILS. (From Once a Week.) [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 24 April 1869

LITERARY EXTRAGTS. HUMAN TAILS. (From Once a Week.) IF then, some of our domestic animals present such extreme variations in the length of the tail, the question natur ally suggests itself, Can man, who is constructed upon the same general plan with other mammals, ever present an analogous variation ? There is no anatomical impossibility in the supposi tion, for we also possess rudimentary tail-bones, known in the human skele ton as the coccygeal bones, and form ing the lower end of the spinal column. If these little bones, which are rudi mentary vertebrae, were increased in number, a bona, fide tail would be the result. Moreover, as M. Do Quatre fages observes, " in the. embryonic Btate, every human being1 has a tail, fully as long as that of the puppy, at the corresponding period of develop. n2ent; consequently, all that is required for the production of a tail is the oc currence .of one of those phenomena : which are commonly termed prolongs tions of development, consequent on .a...

STOCK REPORT. ADVERTISER Office, Friday Evening. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 24 April 1869

STOCK REPORT. ADVERTISER Office, Friday Evening. The news by the mail hiis causcd a considerable depression in mattertt pastoral However, there is, fortunately, no reason lo suppose that the news is quite so unfavourable as it appeared at first sight. By the latent and most Tellable accounts, it appears that the fall was almost entirely on the lower class of wools, and that the better <iualities main tained their ftdl value. It is to be remem bered, also, that at the date of the last re ported sales, very little Areto South Wales wool had yet reached the market. The decline is the more severely felt from its being so entirely unexpected. Previous ad vices had led to an expectation that the closing rates of last ?season would, at least, be 7naintahied, and no adequate reason, or, indeed, no reason at all, ts assigned by the last reports why this expectation has been so utterly disappointed. Another v}onlh must elapse before any definite information can reach ita upon this ...

PRIZE OF ONE HUNDRED GUINEAS .FOR THE BEST ESSAY ON THE LAND QUESTION. TT is grouted ou all sides thai 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 be the great question of the next Session, or rather, of the next Parliament. On this point, public opinion is still, as it always lias 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 aud 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 that happy golden mean of ...
