SACRIFICED TO THE DRINK-DEMON. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 28 April 1869

SACRIFICED TO TEE DRUSE- DEMON. j A fearful murder ia reported from Sheffield. The man charged with this crime is named Henry Seyman. Ho is 3d years old, and was employed as a pocket-biude grinder. Seyman was rather noted for hia intelligence, and formerly spent moat of hia leisure time in reading at home. Latterly ho has taken to drinking, and has boon occasionally violent to his family. Hia drinking habits appoar to havo resulted from tho assurance of a doctor that his trade had so ruined his health that ho had not long to live. This information seems to havo made him reckless, and he has drunk until ho has been delirious; and several times he has given way to groat despondency, owing, as he said, to a pro sontiment that he should never live to see his children brought np. The death of his mother, which occurred about five weeks ago, appears, too, to havo had a very depressing effect upon him, and he has several times attempted to commit suicide.

A USEFUL SUGGESTION. (From the Adelaide Register.) [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 1 May 1869

A USEFUL SUGGESTION.. (From the Adelaide Register.) " I HAVE very great pleasure in forward ing you. herewith, enclosed a sample of Sultana raisins, which I have dried from a small buncli produced on a lateral branch of a fino healthy plant grown from the small graft which you were so very kind as to send me in August last. You will perceive at a glance that it is the veritable Sultana grape, and I hail tho illustrious stran ger, so long confined to Central Asia, as a most important event, although I feel sure not more warmly than you do. I have no doubt it will be ex tensively cultivated in this colony, and will before many years hence form an article of export. I am sure the colony is much indebted to the Board of Governors and yourself for the trouble you have taken in introducing this most valuable variety of grape vino, which seems so well adapted to this colony. " The plant I have succeeded in growing has sent up two stems from the graft, each three inches in circum ference at...

WHEAT-SOWING. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 1 May 1869

WHEAT-SOWING. THE season rominds us ? of the return ing duty, and tlic returning oppor tunity of the farmer. Although sugar and other crops may talce the place of wheat on some lands, it would be unwise to rush from one extreme to another, and totally relinquish wheat growing on land specially adapted to it. Wise people will avoid the com mon failing, too, of putting all their eggs into one basket. The late rains have softened the land and prepared the way for the plough. No time could prove more favourable for turn ing the. seed furrow. Land that was foul should not have been left till now. It should have been broken up early with the plough or cultivator, and cleansed and allowed to lie, and should now be ready for the.seed furrow. It is not well to bury the kernel very deep--certainly not more than <1 inches -3 is better ; and it should bo placed on a firm, not upon a loose, bed. The soil above should be light and well pulverised ; that below sufficiently free to allow...

THE STATION AND THE FARM. HORSES' HEALTH. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 1 May 1869

THE STATION AND THE FARM. HORSES' HEALTH. BY J. PGTTIE, VETERINARY SURGEON, SYDNEY. -IT is of the greatest importance at this season of the year that all owners of horses should pay particular attention to the state of horses' health, especially ' those horses requiring high and invigo rating feeding. A complete revolution takes place in the system-a new . development of latent functions is set in force-so as to prepare the animal for the vicissitudes of winter. The character of the change is such that the greatest care is required in feeding, watering, and grooming. True, many animals pass scathless, though trusted to the hands of ignorant men; but it is not possible to repeat this often without for ever weakening the system. Possibly little or no evidence may be offered for a long time, but when this becomes once developed, it ends in a speedy break up. The most ignorant man may see the symptoms of the great change in the rough starving coat, swelled legs, tight hides, and strong ...

ANECDOTE OF HAYDN. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 1 May 1869

ANECDOTE OF HAYDN. AT niglifc the young minstrel, accom panied by two friends, used to wander about the streets of Vienna by moon light, and serenade with trios of his own composition his friends and patrons. One night he happened to stop under the window of Bernardino Curtz, the director of the theatre. Down rushed the director in a state of great excite menfc. " Who are you ? " he shrieked. " Joseph Haydn." " Who's music is it ? " " Mine ! " " The deuce it is 1 at your age too !" "Why, I must begin, with, some thing." " Come along up-stairs." And the enthusiastic director col lared his prize, and was soon deep in explaining the mysteries of a libretto entitled " The Devil on Two Sticks." Haydn must write music for it accord ing to Curtz's directions. It was no easy task ; the music was to represent all sorts of things-catastrophes, fias cos, tempests. The tempest brought Haydn to his wits' end, for neither he nor Curtz had ever witnessed a sea storm. Haydn sat at the piano banging...

TALES OF MY GRANDMOTHER. (From Once a Week.) [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 1 May 1869

TALES'OP MY GRANDMOTHER. (From Once, a "I THINK," said my grandmother, " that there aro soino moil who would not break into a church to steal tho plato ; but if they saw tho door open, and the plato exposed, they would not mind walking in and taking it." "I know one of these," she said. " I don't imagine for a moment that he would put his hand into a man's pocket, and rob him of his pocket handkerchief; but if he saw tho hand kerchief hanging out, I think, that then ho would take it; don't you ? " I agreed with her, and helped my self from her suuft-box. I certainly was her favourite grandchild. One of these days I will tell you how I lost that appointment. A young pair, whoso union was spoken of in our fatuity circle as more than a probability, had not, for some days, appoared to be on the very best torins with each other. " It's a long engagement," I observed to my grandmother." " It must be," returned the old lady, "for they are perpetually fighting." " But," she added, after a f...

However, at Maitland, the other day, his Lordship quite broke through his usual reserve, and instead of talking for five minutes, talked for nearly an hour. The occa sion being the annual meeting- of the Hunter River Agricultural Society, the speeches were bound to be practical, and His EXCELLENCY, to him justice, seems to have been quite up to the mark. Amongst other things, he drew the attention of the meeting very forcibly to the formidable competition with which the colony is threatened in the production of wool and ...
