WAGGA WAG DISTRICT COURT. TUESDAY, November 10, 1868. (Before Mr. Deputy-Judge WILKINSON.) [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 11 November 1868

WAGGA WAGGA DISTRICT COURT.   TUESDAY, November 10, 1868. (Before Mr. Deputy-Judge WILKINSON.) S. FENNELL v. J. WEIR.—An action to recover the sum of £9, for cattle sold by plaintiff to a third person, named Stapleton, on the defendant's order. (Mr. Willans ap- eared for the plaintiff, and Mr. Fitzhardinge for the defendant.) Stapleton had never paid plaintiff the amount due, and plaintiff now sought recovery from Stapleton's surety, the defendant, who admitted the claim to the amount of £3 6s. 8d., and as to the balance, proved payment. His Honor gave a verdict for plaintiff, for the amount proved. J. FLOOD v. W. H. WOOLI.ETT.—An action of trover and detenue.—Plaintiff claimed £30 for the loss of a horse left in the hands of defendant.

NARANDERA. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 11 November 1868

NARANDERA.     [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPODENT.]     We have been favoured since my last with about half an hour's rain, just sufficient to make us hope for more, but altogether too little to be more than a passing benefit, as it cooled the atmosphere for a few hours, but it is now as hot or hotter than ever. I think for the future, or at least until I have more encouraging reports to make, I will say no more about the weather down here, as the constant reading of '' weather hot and sultry," '' no prospect of a change unless for the worse." is calculated I am sure to make the most of your readers feel, if possible, hotter and more uncomfortable ; and to end the topic for the present, and for the benefit (or otherwise) of your distant readers, I may remark that so far the season appears to be rapidly advancing to the dismal state in which it was some four years since, and our only hope is that heavy rains may fall during the current mont...

GENERAL NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 11 November 1868

GENERAL NEWS. THE ELECTIONS.—Mr. Samuel, the Colonial Treasurer, started yesterday for Wellington. Mr. Robertson ancl Mr. Forster leave by the Agnes Irving on Tuesday—the former for the   Clarence, and the latter for the Hastings. There is no movement at present, to oppose Mr. Robertson : but Mr. Samuel and Mr. Forster are likely to meet with opposition. S. M. Herald. A FINE of £100 with the alternative of six months' imprisonment, was imposed upon John Beauchamp, late an operator in the Collins-street (Melbourne) establishment of   Mr. William Davies, photographer. The offence which was visited with this heavy punishment was that of having in his posses- sion certain prohibited goods, viz., obscene prints and engravings, and other obscene and indecent articles, contrary to the 165th section of the Customs Act of 1857. Those " articles " consisted of photographic nega- tives of an extremely disgusting character, which were seized on the 17th instant, at Mr....

SELECT POETRY. IMPOSSIBLE. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 11 November 1868

SELECT POETRY.   IMPOSSIBLE. There lies—I know not in what land, Nor if there be such land on earth A little cottage, only planned For use ancl simple worth.   ' Tis neither rude, nor yet refined, " But bears a touch of Nature's art, As if ' twere to its owner's mind A fabric of his heart. By window-lights alone revealed Among near-clustered forest trees,   Its walls, its very roofs concealed In vine-clad trellises. A lone green nest upon a hill, With fields and bloomy orchards round, An eyelet in a landscape still, Majestic and profound. For there the mountain peaks are spurred Upward in mighty leaps and free, And there a dreamy boom is heard Low from a sleeping sea, Within the cot are books well-conned, The gathered wisdom of all time,   Cherished and stored by hearts as fond As ever beat in rhyme. By hearts-no more ! There is no land   Where such a vision could be real. Dearest, thy heart must understand What I unsp...

TABLE TALK. (From Once a Week.) [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 11 November 1868

TABLE TALK. (From Once, a Week.) THE German doctors have lately been playing their leeches a droll trick —making one worm do the work of many. When the little blood-sucker has taken his fill and is about to release his bite, he is tapped ; a small incision is made in his side, that serves as an outlet for the blood, and he goes on sticking, in happy ignorance of the cause of his abnormal appetite, as long as the doctor pleases. Bdellatomy is the name given to the practice, and it I is urged that it is not cruel, but con- trarywise ; since it does the leech a good turn by enabling him to enjoy his rich feast indefinitely. He does not die under the operation ; but with proper treatment is soon healed, and may be incised over and over again. There was once an alderman who wished he had been a camel, that he might have been blessed with the seven stomachs vouchsafed by nature to that animal. If such a gourmand still exist, let him seek surgical aid in some such treatment as that practis...

STOCK REPORT. ADVERTISER Office, Friday Evening. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 14 November 1868

STOCK REPORT. ADVERTISER Office,   Friday Evening. Allowing for the depressing news from home by the last mail, the results of the opening wool sales in Melbourne are more satisfac- tory than might have been expected. Buyers seemed disposed to bid well up to home rates, but the fact that has been becoming more apparent every year, is still more em- phatically demonstrated this year, namely, that the production of inferior wools has   reached a point beyond the demand, and unless more attention is paid to breeding sheep with really good wool, the supply will be even more in excess of the demand than it at present is. On the other hand, the   supply of first-class wool of length, fineness, and brilliancy, is almost as mush below the demand as the supply of inferior is above it, and no where can this class of wool be grown   to such perfection as in Australia. It follows then that our squatters will be compelled to pay more, attention...

MESSRS. GEORGE FORSYTH & CO'S. REPORT. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 14 November 1868

MESSRS. GEORGE FORSYTH & CO'S. REPORT.   FAT CATTLE.—No transactions to report. In the Melbourne and Sydney markets the late advance in prices is maintained. Good   fat cattle may be quoted—For bullocks, 5/ 10s to 6/ ; cows, 4/ 10s to 5/. FAT SHEEP.—No sales. We have several prime lots for which a reasonable offer would be taken. The supply of fat sheep in the Melbourne and Sydney markets has been larger than the demand, consequently prices have favoured buyers. Prime fat wethers (shorn) may be quoted as worth 6s to 7s. STORE CATTLE.—We have again to report a continuance in the enquiry for this descript- tion of stock, and holders evince a deter- mination to require of buyers an advance in price ; and as the demand for store cattle is likely to be maintained, we think buyers will have to come up to sellers' views. Our sales this week are—A mob of 500 head mixed cattle to Mr. Baker, on account of Mr. H. F. Howley, Yabtree, and a small lot of milch co...

Wagga Wagga Advertiser "This is true liberty, when freeborn men, Having to advise the public, may speak free." MILTON. SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 14, 1863. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 14 November 1868

WAGGA WAGGA ADVERTISER " This is true liberty, when freeborn men, Having to advise the public, may speak free." MILTON. SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 14, 1868. THE excessive heat with which we have been favoured lately naturally suggests the important question, how to keep cool. The conditions of exist- ence in so hot a climate as ours are necessarily somewhat trying, but there is no reason why we should not endeavour to make the best of them. If we must make up our minds to being pretty well baked during the summer months, it is at least desirable that the operation should be as little painful as possible. If we cannot compel the clouds to gather and the rain to fall, we can at least water the streets for ourselves—if the sun will shine, we may at least follow the example of the wiser cattle, and camp in the shade. Under any circumstances, there is no philosophy equal to the good old plan of making oneself comfortable. Life has miseries enough of its own which are inevitable, to induce most p...

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 14 November 1868

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE.   THE BAZAAR.—The bazaar in aid of the building fund of the Presbyterian Church will be held in the large store adjoining the Commercial Hotel, belonging to Mr. F. A. Tompson, who has kindly granted the use of that building for that purpose. We believe that the articles to be disposed of are of a very superior character, and as the prices asked will be " strictly moderate," there will be an excellent opportunity for capitalists, small and great, to kill two birds with one stone assist a good cause and get a good bargain. ACCIDENT.—Many of our readers will be sorry to hear that Mr. Patrick M'Alister met with a severe accident the other night, having accidentally slipped and broken his leg. He is lying at his brother's house, the Australian, and doing as well as can be expected. By this unfortunate affair Jerry Sneak will lose a good jockey for the Ten Mile, as Mr. M'Alister was to have ridden him for that race. ENTERTAINMENTS.—The races being likely t...

TURF TALK. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 14 November 1868

TURF TALK.   AT LAST the great week is at hand and Wagga is waking up. Most of the horses   have arrived and with them the usual com- plement of horsey humanity. Trainers, and jockeys have taken the place of learned   judges and counsel ; discussions of points of law have given way to more animated dis- cussion of the points of horses ; and the interest felt in verdicts and damages is utterly forgotten in the far greater interest of stakes and bets. So far everything promises well for a brilliant meeting. The races, the entries for which were declared at the Australian, on Thursday night, have filled tolerably well, and in the big race which opened with a nomination of fifteen, only three horses have as yet " funked " the long journey, leaving twelve to go for the guineas. Since our last issue Mr. Bowler's string of five, consisting of Australian, Antelope, Valentine, Freeholder, and the steeple chaser Abelard, have put in an appearance at the ...
