NARANDERA. (PROM OCR OWN" CORRESPONDENT.'] BUSINESS in general appears to have con siderably improved with the change of the weather. We may now confidently rely upon a plentiful suply of feed through the winter now rapidly drawing upon us ; in fact, from the appearance of this neighbourhood, any one would imagine this to be spring instead of autumn, were it not for the very cold nights. Our lock-up has more than its usual number of unwilling visitors. Two prisoners are awaiting their examination at the first criminal court, charged by Mr. J. A. Lewis, with killing a sheep, his property. The other unfortunate tenant is a lunatic, who, I understand, after wandering about the bush for seven or eight days without food, was fonnd somewhere on the Merool Creek, and has been handed over to the police authorities for safe keeping.

FATAL DUEL IN SPAIN. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 19 May 1869
FATAL DUEL IN SPAIN. Celestino Olozaga, the son of a citi zen of high rank, and the nephew of another bearing a name popular in the revolution, and himself holding an official position in the Cortes, has been killed in a duel. One evening he went from the Cortes to the opera; there his cane happened to fall so as to touch the person of Count De Jara. That nobleman, flew into a rage. The owner of the fallen stick explained that it was an accident. The noble bully gave him the lie. Adjourning the altercation from the House to the lobby, Senor Olozaga agaiu apologised, with the assuranco that the incident was accidental. But this was of no use ; and now the unthinking spectators clamoured for a duel. It was arranged, they met the next morning, and fought with broadswords. But as the hapless young man had never learned the use of that weapon, he was at his adver sary's mercy, who being an expert, had no difficulty in thrusting him through the body and laying him dead upon the ground. HO...

MESSRS. WINDEMSR AND BOWES; REPORT. I The first series of the quarterly sales of colonial wools, which opened here on the 2Gth ultimo, closed to-day. The quantity brought forward consisted of 101,045 bales Australasian, and 33,747 Cape, against 84,759 Australasian and 3G,299 Cape at corresponding series last year.. Notwith standing a fair, and at times even a numerous, attendance of buyers, competition has been active only within low limits ; more regu larity has been observed than during the exceptionally depressed sale3 of last Septem ber, out the improvement that took place during the December sales has been entirely showed firmness at the opening of the present series have gradually weakened, so that the present currency has returned to a level with September, which was the lowest point reached for the last twenty years. The last few days an improved tone has been per ceptible, which, although not producing yet a corresponding change in quotations, allows hope that the fear to w...
SOCIAL. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 19 May 1869
SOCIAL. The season of, 1869 may be said to be fairly afloat, , though as yet: not very briBk, owing perhaps to the early Easter ';; still, drawing-rooms and levees have been held all through the month. Parliamentary dinners have been eaten, and what may be termed the " heavy business " of the season is being transacted. In a week or two the ladies will come up, and kettle drums, croquet parties, garden fetes, and all the thousand and one out-of-door idlenesses will go on, for just at present the weather is too cold for that sort of thing. In a couple of months again " heavy business " will recommence at the end of the season, when young men will be asked their , intentions, and notices inserted in the Court Journal about "arrangements being on the tapis." Personalities, as yet, are not very numerous, but I regret to say that scandals are. The Marquis of Water ford-a fit successor of the famous harum-scarum-has signalised himself by running off with the wife of Captain Vivian, and ha...

THE WOOL SALES. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 19 May 1869
THE WOOL SALES. THE wool market is thus reported upon by Messrs. H. P. Hughes anil Son : Wo regret to notice tlirvt most colonial wool this season is either infested with burr or moat, and although many flocks show a marked improvement in the washing, this great drawback has very materially affected the prices obtained. Trade in France, as well as in our manufac turing districts, is at present in an unsatis factory state ; and stocks of the raw material largor than usual at this period of the year, owing, to some extent, to our mild winter ; goods suitable for that season have con sequently accumulated. This, and the ex pected large arrivals for May and July, has tended to materially reduce prices. Sydney and Queensland wool, in many instances, has deteriorated in quality and growth, and not being so suitable for fine clothing manufac turers, has sold very low ; while really any thing approaching the old standard of small growth and good condition has commanded good competition, and...
EMIGRATION. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 19 May 1869
EMIGRATION. The subject of emigration still con tinues to engage attention, and is.dis cussed in all its phases; but before" anything on a large scale can be at tempted with mutual success, it is necessary that the colonies should originate some well-organised plan for absorbing and at once utilising the emigrants to be landed on their shores. Indiscriminate transportation of needy men and women from our overcrowded hives of industry to the chief cities and towns of the colonies will prove a cruelty and a curse. A fair start is a desideratum, and in providing the necessary funds for that, the colonial Governments will have to co-operate with the English agencies which are taking the matter up. Her Majesty has set a good example by contributing £150 to the British and Colonial Emigration Fund, of which the Lord Mayor is president, for the relief, by emigration to British colonies, of the distress existing among unemployed workmen and their families. And when some tangible scheme is s...

At the Liverpool Assizes on March 53, before Mr. Justice Brett, in the Civil Court, Miss Elizabeth Driver, a spinster of 31), brought an action for breach of promise against Mr. Dobson Gill, woollen manufac turer of Manchester.

AUSTRALIAN PRESERVED MEATS. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 19 May 1869
AUSTRALIAN PRESERVED MEATS. The groat social problem, says the Daily News, how to bring the surplus animal food of thinly-populated coun tries to the mouths of our starving masses, seems to be gradually ap proaching its solution, both in a scien tific and a mercantile sense, Another step was taken last week in the right direction. Mr. Tallertnan. on the part of the Australian Meat Agency, has entered into a mutually advantageous arrangement with the directors of the Aerated Bread Company for the sale by the latter of Australian meat by retail, on a liberal commission; The mercantile value was previously tested at a shop opened for the pur pose in Norton Colgate; in Shoreditch, where the tinned meat was purchased to a fair extent, and the cured rolls of beef and mutton eagerly bought up by the poor of that locality at 5d. per pound for mutton and 6d. for beef. As the Bread Company has oyer eighty retail shops, mostly situated in similar localities, it is likely to do a large business...

Strange Story. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 19 May 1869
Strange Story. A paragraph lias been going the round of the papers under the heading of "Strange Story from Carmarthenshire," stating that a young girl iias lived for seventeen months without food. The Lancet quoted the para graph, and ridiculed tho credulity of the vicar of the parish, who has written to the papers expressing his belief in tho siary. In consequence of this, the father of the girl, Mr. Evan Jacob, of Llanfihangcl-ar-Arth, has called in several medical men to examine the child, and a committee has been appointed to investigate the matter. A subscription list has been opened to defray the expenses of men who are to' watch the girl, two by night and two by day. The test was com menced at 8 o'clock on Monday night, March 22. The story is implicitly believed in the neighbourhood, and the father is a respectable farmer. It is difficult to understand what motive there can be for deception, as the father will not allow tho child to rcaoive any money from visitors.

A Fatal Amour. Tlib Toronto Leader says that an officer of tli© 53rd Regiment was shot while skating Qucbeo on the night of March 3rd.

The first ball -went clear, past the bridge of his. nose, but the se...

Owing to the threatening aspect of the morning, and the full supplies of the two previous weeks, very few country buyers put in an appear ance ; the attendance was, therefore, com paratively small, and the tone of the market correspondingly dull, and prices fell, on the average, about 15a a bead, middling and inferior cattle suffering to the greatest extent.
