(!~orreaponbEntce. THE 01OIR OF ST. JOHS.. (To the Editorof the Ealpress.) Sui,--WTen an opponent raises his swordl Mpoint, a. I enerous. antagonist sheathes his rapier. MIr. looko's determination not to continue a discussiof he so unnecessarily opened simply disarms me, and prevents my publishing his letter to MIr. Fox, the terms of which must have convinced the public, if nothing else could. This Ictter was written to Mr.. Fox in Sydney, oeeeks before his return. .W?hen I charged the Rev. S. Perceval as the cause of the clhange ill the Church Service, and - censured him for doing an unwarrantable thing, MIr. Hooke told me most posilirel thalt Mr. Perceval w a to blame, and that the "uholse reslepolni-. bilf" (these are his exact wordls) rested on hlmself (lr. Hookle.) Hlence I charged Mr. Hooko, in my letter, with introducing an "innovation ;' thisi was his own term, as applied to the Kyrie, and not a coinage of nmine.

* - acal Htt[ligence. IN TIE Wnoxn Box.-A rather singular adven ture .between a cat and a horse, resulting in the death of the former, came to our knowledge the other day. A cat it seems had entered the stable of Mr. G. Forsyth, of this town, upon a mousing expedition, and in the course of her explorations passed down the manger where one of the horses was enjoying a feed. . The horse immediately re sented the unauthorised inltrnusion of his diminutive visitor by seizing her by the back of thie neck with his teeth and shaking her as a dog would a rat, n?either pussey's claws nor her teeth could serve her in her need, and though she was by no means silent she was fain to waste all her efforts at resist ance in impotent scratehlings at impalpable air. The horse continued shaking and crushing her with his teeth until her strugglings ceased, and then dropped her with a dislocated spine, dead upon the floor. Axornnn DErATu I?

TO THE FLOCK OWNERSB OF AUSTRALIA. GENTLEMEN-W- e beg to draw your attention to I the fact that we are manufacturers of a White SOFT 80AP, madeepecially for WOOL-WASHING purposes. The advantages of washing ahesp,before shearing,'in soap and warm water, have been so fully recognised, particularly in Tasmania, that it is ~uite unnecessary for -tas to say one word on the asubect. Itmay not, however, be so well known as it ought to be that hard soap-common household soap-should notbe used for that purpos.. The yolk of thesfleece has been analysed by. some of the most eminent chemistsain Europe, and it is found to be neither mozo nor less than a pure potash soap, that is, soft soap. Hence it follows that wool washed with our soap, which is prepared inetriet conformity with the com position of the yolk, if any of the yolkie displaced, an exact equivalent is left,t he wool thereby retaining all that sotoeeso which clean wool ndt freed from the yolk always'has; besides, the loes-in weight i...

THE NEWS BY THE MAIL. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express and Murrumbidgee District Advertiser — 14 July 1866
T'HE NEWS BY THE MAIL. Never since telegraphs have been established in Austialia have they conveyed to us intelli- gence of deeper import than that which they flashed through the land on Wednesday last. The latest news by the preceding mail had prepared us in a measure for coming calamities, but the shock was still great when the tele- graph announced in disjointed sentences that our worst fears had been realized, that war had commenced in Europe, and that England was passing through a commercial crisis un- paralleled in the annals of the world. The sudden collapse of a gigantic house like that of OVEREND, GuimRay, and Co., was certain to engender a very general feeling of distrust and uneasiness, and to cripple and embarrass all those with whom they were commercially connected. It is therefore scarcely to be wondered at, that we should now hear of the crash of Bank after Bank, as well as of large numbers of private firms. Before the depar- ture of the mail the worst of the crisis w...

Local Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express and Murrumbidgee District Advertiser — 21 July 1866
local *ntelligeunce. FRanxs .d FORTUN5.-For some months past, a vague kind of rumour has been current in Wagga Wagga to'the effeot that a veritable British Peer was quietly.'residing under an.assumed name, in our midst. It was a rumour, however, to which very little credibility was attached, and was of tener the subject of jocular allusion than serious remark. It now turns out that, though not quite correct in form,.it still approximated very nearlyy to truth. As yet, we have certainly had no Enulih nobleman for a, resident, though we really have been daily brushing up against a baronet for the last two or three years without knowing it. The individual to whom we refer has, up to the present time,~ beenmknwn to our townamen only as "Tom Castro." and, during his residence amongst us, has occupied a very humble station in life. Recent events have disclosed the fact that his real name is not Castro, but Roger Charles Tichbourne, eldest son and heir-at.law to the late Sir James Tich bou...

' (orresponbence. THE ANNUAL RACES. To the Editor of.te Expreau. Six,-As our Wagga Wagga annual race meeting is now fast approaching, I wish to 'say a few words in reference to the same. ~From the prospects of the season, it is quite likely the Murrnmbidgee Turf Club meeting will be a little above par this year, in giving a rattling bill of fare. , But even allowing it not to be below that of past seasons, it will still offer a strong indocement to owners of race horses to visit Wagga Wagga. The Murrumbidgee Turf Club programme will compare favourably with that of any other far inland racing community in the country. Therefore, it is now time that our local sportsmen commenced their preparations for operat ing on their much admired fast 'uns, if they wish to hold their own, ground.. I think our Wagga Wagga fast'goers will, this meeting,- have to keep their weather eyes open, as, from reports, I find a few fresh nags mean to put in an appearance, in the style of Riverina, Gwendoline,...
