TO WIFE-SEEKERS. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 15 May 1869

TO WIFE-SEEKERS. WOULD you wed a lovely creature, Faultless quite in form and feature, Choo3e her not from inind or heart Don't bo such a foolish bumpkin. Take her as you'd take a pumpkin, Or a cabbage-from a carte ! A MONSTER CITY.-Some 300,000 human souls have been, added to the population of London since the census ?of 1861. Within the border of that metropolis are gathered one-tenth part of tho population of Scotland, Eng land, and Ireland.

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 great 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, j are as various as there are interests to be affected, or political purposes to be served.

Wagga Wagga Advertiser "This is true liberty, when freeborn men, Having to advise the public, may speak free." MILTON. SATURDAY, MAY 15, 1869. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 15 May 1869

Mrjgp l^forfkc x " This 1B true liberty, whan freoborn men, Having to adrae the public, may speak free." MILTON. SATURDAY, MAY 15, 1869. THE issue of the contest at Ballarat will' probably have disgusted many more than it has surprised. The few good then who, hoping against hope, were unwilling to believe the elec tors of Ballarat so enamoured of shame as to court their own lasting disgrace, may affect some surprise at their disappointment; but with the majority of people, what has happened is probably very much what it was expected would happen. In the political game, as played in the Bisfcer colony, dirt. has for a long time been trumps, and it cannot bo a matter of much surprise that the player best furnished with that sable snit should bo the winner. Of course, from our point of view it seems very' horrible that a detected liar and cheat should bo preferred as the representative of a free people to an honest man; but the tastes of Ballarat are not our tastes, and a charit able a...

MELBOURNE MEMS. [FROM OCR OWK CORRESPONDENT.] May 8th, 18C9. As I told you in tho brief postscript to my last letter, the news of Mr. Glass's release was known in town on Saturday night, and Mr. Quarterman was released also on Wednesday afternoon. ThiB has resulted in the appointment of a select com mittee to "enquire into tho rights and privileges of Parliament," and in the meantime the greatest excitement pre vails. The caao stands thus-A writ of habeas was applied lor on behalf of Mr. Hugh Glass, and the Attorney-General, thinking, appa rently, that the first warrant (containing the names of two persons, for different offences) was bad, liad another warrant, referring to Mr. Glass alone, issued by the Speaker. Mr. Ireland, Mr. Anderson, and Professor Hearn appeared on Saturday before the Judges of the Supreme Court, on behalf of Mr. Glass. The Attorney-General, mis trusting-as well he might-his own powers, delegated his cause to Mr. Michio and Mr. Billing. It was argued that tho ...

THE GOULBURN SYNOD. .THE Church of England Synod, at Goulburn, concluded its sittings on Saturday last. On .tho last day, there was an animated discus sian in reference to tli'e carrying out of the Public Schools Act, in which our representa tive, tho Eev. Mr. Harpur, took rather a prominent part. Tho Kcv. D. E. JOKES moved-"That in tho opinion of this synod the appointment of lay-proachers to tho masterships of public schools is contrary to tho spirit of tho Public Schools Act." Ho coul(l not say much for the working of the Public Schools Act, but perhaps they had no right tocriticiso the Act - itself too closely. His complaint was against tho way iu which that Act was carried out. So far from being carried out impartially, it ?was so worked as to givo to one denomina tion a great amount of uecrct influence. Schools wore hold in Wesloyan churches, under Woaloyau masters, and overlooked by Wealoyans, consequently they becamo vir tually Wesloyan schools, the masters preach ing in the...

A SAD CASE. To the Editor of the W. \\\ Advertiser. SIR,-I .wish to ask your advico upon a subject of the greatest moment to the young men. and. women of this district. A few days ago I received, through the post, a letter addressed in foaiinine hand writing. I cannot account for it-(I don't mean the letter, though that may be considered unaccountable enough)-but for the state of trepidation into which I was thrown upon receiving it. My hand trembled, my heart thumped, and I was conscious of the blood rushing to my face, and suffusing it with a glow-of crimson, no doubt, for the mes senger glared at me with astonishment, and lingered as if he would like to know the contents of a missive that could, unopened, produce so unusual an effect. I retired tremblingly to a quiet corner, broke open the envelope, and discovered, ye Gods ! a lovely maiden's portrait! Lovely, Mr. Editor! If the writer of the letter be only half as beau tiful as the portrait she claimed to be liers, she is an ang...
