Wagga Wagga Advertiser "This is true liberty, when freeborn men, Having to advise the public, may speak free." MILTON. SATURDAY, MAY 8, 1869. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 8 May 1869

" This Is true liberty, when freeborn men, Having to advise the public, m»y speak free." MILTON. SATURDAY, MAY 8, 1869. THE necessity for legislation on the vexed and vexing question of travelling sheep has been re peatedly pointed out. Scarcely an issue of any country paper interested in pastoral matters has been published for the last year that might not be " put in evidence" against the injustice done to the many by the greed of the few. In our own district we have all beon eye-witnesses of repeated instances of grOFS hardship of this kind, showing an amount of cool, unblushing rapacity which, if exhibited in connection with any;more personal property than grass and water, would undoubtedly have en sured to the perpetrators the apprecia tive notice of the police. What would be the fate of a man who, nolens volens, insisted upon sharing the comforts of your kitchen, taking toll of your larder, or going halves in your bank account? And what greater right have the " caterpillars " o...

STOCK REPORT. ADVERTISER Office, Friday Evening. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 8 May 1869

STOCK REPORT. ADVERTISER Office, Friday Evening. The weather daring the toeek has been every thing that the moat exacting in the witter of water supply could desire. A three day# steady, growing rain has again given the grass a start, and as, in consequence of the vast numbers of stock to be accommodated, the country was again beginning to gelraihet bare, the change was tx most welcome one. A. large number of sheep are approaching from the mountains, and the country will require all thai the most favourable of sea tons can do for it to enable it to provide for all comers. A movement is being made to memorialize the Government- to regulate in some way the hitherto unrestricted travelling of stock. The present state of the law is taken advan tage of by unprincipled persons, to feed, and even to fatten, their Jlocks at the expense of their neighbonrs. It is calculated that something like 300,000 sheep pass through the district annually, a great proportion of ? which traffic is purely s...

HAY. MR. JAMES FORSYTE'S REPORT [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 8 May 1869

HAY. MR. JAMES FORSYTE'S REPORT BUSINESS is a little brisker, although as yet but few local sales have been made. I have placed a small station on the middle Lachlan, -with five miles frontage to the river, unstocked, under offer, and hope shortly to effect a satisfactory sale. A considerable number of fat sheep are now about leaving this district for the Victorian markets. A few have been disposed of here for local consumption, at very full rates. Is storo sheep the disinclination of stock owners to sell, has, for the present, put a stop to business, but the good price offer ing for this description of stock will eventually tempt owners to avail them selves of such a favorable market. After shearing there will bo a serious decline in prices. I have only one small lot of store cattle in hand, which I have placed nndor offer at £4 per hend, at which price, I have no doubt they will be taken, I have some enquiry for townsliip allotments week of some of the best building sites in tha c...

THE HOSPITAL COMMITTEE. (To the Editor of the W. W. Advertiser.) [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 8 May 1869

THE HOSPITAL COMMITTEE. (To the.Editor of the Hr. )V. Advertiser,) | SIR,-Whatever may be the rights of the case between Drs. Lyons aud Robinson, I think that no time should be lost in reassur ing the public, by joining some one with the latter gentleman in the discharge of the medical duties of the Hospital. The Com mittee may be sure that there is a strong public feeling on the point, and if unwilling to take the responsibility upon themselves, they should call a special general meeting and submit the question to the decision of a majority of the subscribers. I have agreat respect for both medical gentlemen, but knowing neither of them personally have no interest in the matter beyond the good of the institution, which, I think, is likely to suffer severely if the present unsatisfactory state of matters shonld be allowed to con tinue. The institution is liberally supported for public, not private purposes ; but if the Committee are not true to the conditions of that support, it is ...

ANEURISM V. ASTHMA. (To the Editor of the W. W. Advertiser,) [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 8 May 1869

ANEURISM V. ASTHMA. I (To the Editor of the IF. \V. Advertiser,) SIR,-I have read with much concern your remarks and the correspondence in your Journal on the Aneurism v. Asthma case, and the conclusion I have arrived at is, that the difference of opinion between our two leading medical men on that Bubject is a great misfortune to the district. Whatever the cause, or whosesoever the fault, the inimical feeliug between Dr. Robinson and Dr. Lyons, seeing how frequently it must happen that a consultation would be most desirable between them, is clearly a very serious matter for the sick and moribund of our community. That they can meet again in professional practice is, I am assured, im possible ; and common sense confirms the assurance. What, then, is to be done? Are our friends to be left to die, when crises arrive ? How very often are the most skilful doctorsat fault, through failing to detect some peculiar feature, or some slight symptom, which, perhaps, attracts at once the notice...

MELBOURNE MEMS. [FROM OXtR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] May 1. THE Hougo is still engaged in its considera tion of the report of the Bribery Committee, and lias arrived at a conclusion which lias astonished the country. Mr, Bowman was called upon on Tuesday to make his explana tion of the charges brought against him by Mr. Butters. He had no explanation to make. He had made the bet (2s. Gd. to £50) with Mr. Butters relative to the passing of the Quieting of Titles Bill, and as he won it took very good care that he was paid ! The House, on the motion of the Attorney-Genera^ then found that lie had been guilty of an "irregularity " and deserved a "reprimand" which he received then and thero in the aliape of a very mild rebuke from the Speaker. No such leniency was displayed to Messrs. Glass and Quarteruian, the two squatters who were the ringleaders of the Association which liad effected all the mischief. 11 was rumoured that the House would visit them with the severest punishment, and that im...

SYDNEY GOSSIP. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] Wednesday, May 5. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 8 May 1869

SYDNEY GOSSIP. [FROM OUR OWN" CORRESPONDENT.] Wednesday, May 5. THE great topic of local interest at present is, the Intercolonial Exhibition, which was formally opened by the Governor yesterday, at Alfred Park, Redfern. The rain came down in torrents nearly tho whole of the day, so you may imagine that it was not a very favourable occasion to witness a show of bulls and bull-calves, horses, pigs, game cocks, dogs (for they have a canine depart, merit) and other representatives of such orders. It was a pity, too, for the Exhibi bition is really creditable to the colonies, and the display of metallic work, machinery, and other workmanship denoting an advanced state of artizan skill is more than, I think, the most sanguine could have anticipated. At tho dinnor last it night was contrasted by Mr. T. S. Mort with tho "tiny workshop in Queen's Flaco " which he remembered as displaying the only engineering manufactory that the colony could then boast. The weather is a little finer to-day,...

NARANDERA. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 8 May 1869

NARAJNDERA. [FROM OUR OWN- UOKBESPONDKN'r.] WE are at.present enjoying a steady soaking rain, which was much needed. In a few days the benelit will be visible. Now that onr great and pressing want has been supplied by the present and late genial rains, an opportunity presents itself of par ticularizing a few of our minor require ments. In the first place, I must mention that the Court of Petty Sessions has hitherto b(?en held in the passage of one of our hotels, after which piece of information I need scarcely say we want a Court House: another annoyance the Narandera people have up to the present time had to put up with, is the fact, that no Small Debts Courts being held down here, any trilling amount of debt that it was necessary to bring before that Court entailed at the least an outlay of some five pounds travelling expenses, in many cases, larger than the sum sought to be recovered. Why cannot we have a Small Debts Court down here ? Again should a summons be re quired, or indee...

TABLE TALK. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 8 May 1869

TABLE TALK. RUMOURS of war !-war social and profes sional-teara aud hysterics in the boudoir threats on the Rialto, or where the men of Wagga most do congregate, under the veran dah of the Australian-nacres, both loud and deep, in the surgery. "Horsewhips is riz," said an amiable friend of mine, remarkable for combining a rare fund of information about other people's business, with an utter inability to atteud to his own, "horsewhips is riz, and Milner Stephen has been tele graphed for." The remark was, probably, meant as a witticism, so I smiled-literally, I mean, with the benevolent expression of a man anxious to do a kind action-and strolled onwards. There are men, I verily believe, who would joke in the jaws of death, or, with ill-timed levity, laugh in the face of a whole college of surgeons. The hearts of such men are in a very bad way-they deserve to be stethoscoped. With the com parative value of horsewhips, I have nothing to do, but let me protest against the tears and the ...

MESSRS. RUSSELL AND CO'S. SHEEPWASHING APPARATUS. (From the S. M. Herald.) [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 15 May 1869

MESSES. RUSSELL AND CO'S. SHEEP-1 WASHING APPARATUS. ' ' | (From the S. M. Herald.) THE most prominent of aU the ma- ? ehinery is that set up at great expense by P. N. Russell and Co., of the Sydney; Foundry. The first portion consists.of: sheep-washing plant (in operation) ca- . pable of washing about 2000 sheep. per day of ten hours. This washing: plant is said to have been arranged on principles combining all the improve-; ments the firm has been able to'effect after a large experience, with the ad- i vantage of the most extensive informa tion and valuable suggestions gathered from the various squatters whom they have supplied with machinery. The hot swim-which is an oblong tank, J with a partition in the centre-is made ?; in one with the soak-hole, and is of a width sufficient only for one sheep to swim ou either side of the central par-1 tition, thus making it impossible for the animal to turn round and swim; back when once it ha9 entered.

THE STATION AND THE FARM. ON THE BREEDING AND MANAGEMENT OF CATTLE. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 15 May 1869

THE STATION AND THE FARM. THE BREEDING AND MANAGE MENT OF CATTLE. THE following' is an abstract of a paper read by Mr. Duckham, at a meeting of the Brecon Chamber of Agriculture: In selecting our breeding animals, it is strictly necessary that great care and attention be exercised, inasmuch as the condition of the progeny depends more on the sire than on the dam. The following are the several points of perfection in form-A mellow hide, well covered with soft glossy hair, a moderate short head and wide forehead, from which the horns of the bull should spring in a straight line, whilst those of the cow have usually a wave and a .slight upward tendency ; a strong out line, a full, deep chest, sloping shoulder, good springing rib, so that no hollow remains between the outline of the shoulder and the rib; a deep flank, small bone, and the whole carcase well and evenly covered with firm flesh, yielding with a pleasant elasticity to the touch, are essential qualifications. I consider that ...
