A TUNE ON THE ORGAN. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 5 May 1869

A TUNE ON THE ORGAN. You're sitting on your window seat, Beneath a cloudlcss moon You hear a sound that seems to wear The semblance of a tune ; As if a broken iife should strive To drown a craekcd bassoon. . So sang1 one of America's most gifted bards, wlioa describing- three classes of men who manage to pick yourpockets--the importunate "gentle- ! man of the road," who gently " hints j about a bullet in your brains"-the imploring beggar of the pave, who says " it is a dreadful thing for men to lose their logs "-and the hideous murderers of music, who, after "pluck ing1 tho eyes of Sentiment, docking the tail of Rhyme," cracking1 the voice of J Melody, and breaking- the legs of Time eventually come round with the hat. The poet's amusing description of liis excruciating tortures came forcibly to our mind while reading last week's issue of the vain-glorious spieco of bunting which, at present does duty as ^ Protestant Banner. ~Wo must pro mise that our critic, in this case, is a music...

SELECT POETRY.. GHOSTS. GHOSTS often come to my window, And knock at my chamber door, Or sit by my side at dinner, Or walk with mo on the shore. I know their villanoiis faces, As they giggle, and sneer, and jar: They will not be gone, so I'll count them, And tell them what they are I Ghost3 of ambitions buried, Ghosts of a love grown cold, Ghosts of a fortune squandered, Ghosts of a tale that's told, Ghosts of a traitorous friendship, And of follies nine times nine j Come Wizard ! come! and lay them In the deep lied Sea !-of Wine ! -All the, Year Round.

PRIZE OF ONE HUNDKED GUINEAS FOR TIIE BEST ESSAY ON THE LAND QUESTION. IT is granted on all sides that 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 groat question of the next Session, or rather, of the next Parliament. On this point, public opinion is still, as it always has been, in a state of chaos. Opinions, in short, or "notions " which pass for opinions, are as various as there are interests to be affected, or political purposes to be served. Before a question of sucli vital importance to the country is again submitted to tlie verdict of the people, it seems desirable that some attempt should be made to sift these various and often conflicting opinions -to sapar.ite 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...

BARON DAURIER'S OPINION ON VICTORIAN WOOLS. THE following correspondence appears in the Australasian:— (To the Editor of the Australasian.) [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 5 May 1869

BARON DAURIER'S OPINION ON VICTORIAN WOOLS. TIIE following- correspondence appears in the Australasian : (To the Editor of the Australasian.) Sir,--When in Europe in 1867, amongst many places of interest to an Australian squatter, I visited the Im perial farm at Rambouillet. Having good letters of introduction, one from my friend, Mr. Spiro, of Melbourne, and also from a gentleman of the Im perial household at Paris, I was re ceived with great kindness by the manager, M. le Baron Daurier. I need not tell you how pleasantly went that beautiful July day. The flock, the farm, the pheasantry, and the beautiful park-all were visited in the company of the good baron, and when we re turned to Paris late on that summer night, the hospitality and ki&dness we had met with filled our thoughts. I was most fortunate in my companion, M. le Professor Sace,. a man of European reputation, and a member of the Legion of Honour, whoso life has been devoted to science, particularly to agricultur...

THE STATION AND THE FARM. WHICH COLONY GROWS THE BEST WOOL! (From the Amtralanian.) [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 5 May 1869

THE STATION AND THE FARM. WHICH COLONY GROWS THE BEST WOOL! (From the Amtralanian.) IT seems hard to prove which wool is absolutely the best, that of New South Wales or Victoria. We get up inter colonial shows, to which the settlers of that colony will not send their prime fleeces, and to the so-called show at Sydney this week, few, if any, of our principal sheep-breeders have sent any of their produce, so that, in faet, there never has been, nor will there yet be, any truly intercolonial competition. Then the challenge given by Mr. Bayly, because we were unable to appreciate the value of the one bale sent down to our last show of the sort, has ended in proving nothing. If the time had been three years, one side or other must have won twice, and thus a partial victory must have been gained ; but now we remain just as far as ever from a settlement of the point in dis pute. Nor, indeed, could anything de cisive be learned from the accident of a victory on either side, for, judging fro...

BEANS. (From the Economist.) [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 8 May 1869

BEANS. (From the Economist.) THOSE who purpose sowing beans for home feeding or for the market could not have a better season than the present, and, considering that so much wheat is being sown this year, the change of a few acreB from that grain to beans may be found to be highly profitable; the almost only drawback to which beans are subject in such favourable growing weather is, their aptitude to run to straw too inuch, and become too rank for the successful setting of the blossom. A crop of beans is liable frequently to deceive the inexperienced cultivator, its appa rent strength is oftentimes its actual weakness; a short, stunted plant is, nine cases out of ten, better podded than a rank, growing one. Heavy land is the. best soil for beans, and should a crop upon such land show symptoms of too strong a growth, the best plan to adopt is to " top " it with a reaping hook ; a handy man can get over a good area in a day. If sowing be postponed to the middle of the month of May, it ...

FALLOWING. (From the Economist.) [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 8 May 1869

FALLOWING. (From, the Economist.) WBLERE manure is scarce, and farmers are tired of unprofitable successive crops, fallowing is being introduced; and some owners now have determined to cultivate only two-thirds of their lands,, and fallow the remainder every season. It is still a question whether this be: a" good policy ; for land itself never asks for a rest if properly fed. Oar gardens don't require fallowing, although nearly every part of a kitchen garden will produce under good treat ment two crops a year. By introduc ing sheep-feeding upon our arable lands, and judiciously growing a few acres of roots and fodder crops, fallow ing ought to bo an operation seldom performed. Drainage and drilling wide in tlie rows, so as to allow free use of the horse and hand-hoe, will do much towards the extirpation of weeds, and this latter object is not the least sought by those who are adopting the system. It is generally the presence of weeds which gives rise to the un profitable crops just ...

THE STATION AND THE FARM. GOATS V. SHEEP AS WOOL-BEARERS. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 8 May 1869

THE STATION" AND THE FARM. GOATS V. SHEEP AS WOOL-BEARERS. BY drawing a comparison between sheep and goats as practical wool-bear ing animals, I would not, if I could, have one sheep less, or one pound less of their wool raised; for we now import nine and a half mil lion pounds of wool, and over seven teen million dollars' worth of woollen goods, all of which, and more, we could and ought to produce at home, and would do so if there were no villainous dogs in the land. But rather let us have more goats and more of their wool commensurate with its superior quality and value. Let the " improved Kentucky " breed of sheep be taken as the object of com parison, and at the usual estimate of five sheep per acre of good grass land. One hundred breeding ewes of this breed have produced eight pounds each of clean, unwashed woo), and this wool was sold this year at 38 cents per pound. These are liberal estimates, and certainly more than the sheep of this country generally produce. Thus we have...
