ENGLISH NEWS. (From the Home Papers.) A Lover's Tragedy. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 19 May 1869
ENGLISH NEWS. f From the Home Papers.) A. Lover's Tragedy. A few evenings since a youth named Der mari, described as a clerk out of employment, was walking in Duchess wood, near Bristol, .with a girl named Ireland, to whom he was engaged to be married. Some alight dis agreement arose between them, and IJerweiit walked away. The young woman went in search of him very soon, and found that lie had climbed a tree and hanged himself by his handkerchief. Nobody was near the spot, and the girl at once climbed the tree to cut her lover down, but she had 110 knife with her, and the only way by which she could cffcct her object was by biting through the knotted handkerchief. This with some diffieulty she succeeded in-doing, and the foolish boy fell on tho ground insensible. The young woman thou succeeded in getting assistance, and Derman was taken to the Bristol Infirmary, whero he is lying in a very precarious condition.

THE WOOL SALES. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 19 May 1869
THE WOOI/ SAI/ES. The first series of London Bales of colonial wool* which, commenced on 25th 'February, closed on the 24th inst.' The quantities catalogued amounted to 136,637 bales, of which about one-half has been bought for export; Mr. Hel muth Schwartz, in his circular of the 18th, remarks :?-"There is no note worthy change in the market, which, if anything, is more depressed than a week ago. Without any apparent cause, prices have, from the beginning, slowly but continuously declined, until, they now find themselves almost below the level of the most depressed period of last year. Nor is this confined to such wools as are produced in over whelming masses, , the fall being like wise-and very sensibly-felt by the finest sorts, of which the production iB by no means excessive. Nothing bat the dread of the 450,000 bales to be offered in the two summer series can explain this strange weakness of the market at a period when, from all the attending1 circumstances, it Bhould be, and g...

MR. THOMAS DAWSON-'S It WORT. FAT CATTLE.-The market is very firm, and 2Lb to 25s per 100 lb. is easily realised for whole mobs of bast cattle. FAT Siruiip.-There is a good demand for prime flocks, which average from 8s to 10s per head. Inferior qualities difficult to sell. STORK CATTLE.-During the week there has been a brisk demand, and prices have con sequently risen. STORK Shbei*.-I have several inquiries for good flocks, and at very satisfactory rates.

Inqniries continue for i good cattle runs, but owners of such will only sell at extreme prices. Second-class runs of this description aro sought after at " store stock value with the view of removing the cattle to districts where they can be fattened. Sheep stations are very unsale able at present, the depressad condition of tlie wool market, and the low prices ruliug for store sheep offer but little inducement to invest in this description of property. STORE C.vrri.n.-The demand is far in excess of the supply. Well-bred lots of equal sexes, and bullocks, are in considerable - - SPtoKP : are chiefly confined to small drafts in isolated districts which will not pay for collecting. ; STORE SHEEP.-Very little inquiry, transnc- j tions entirely confined to store wether3 ! .uitable for fattening, the demand for which is even very limited.

SIX DAYS BURIED. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 19 May 1869
SIX DAYS BURIED. The great University boat race on the Thames excited this year even more than the usual enthusiasm, bat Cambridge was again unsuccessful. I pass this by, to speak of another illus tration of English heroism and endur ance. On Tuesday night last week, ten men and three boys went down into a coal-pit at Brierly-hill. They had just eaten their suppers, and got to their work again," when a sudden burst of water from an old working flooded all"the pit and cut them off from the shaft; but for the fact that Bome of the workings were much higher than" the shaft bottom, they must have been , drowned at once. Not till morning was the accident discovered by those on the surface, and to pump out the flood-what a'task! For four : days the engines clanked, and amidst a breathless crowd of watchers the water was ceaselessly poured out. Not till Saturday afternoon was there any proof that the volume of water was. sensibly diminished, and long ere then it was thought the poor fellow...
BENCH-BAITING. (To the Editor of the W. W. Advertiser.) [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 19 May 1869
BENCH-BAITING. (To the Editor of the IF. IF. SIR,'-I sometimes get your paper; my hut keeper takos in the Express, l\is admiration for that periodical being exceeded only by liis contempt for the Advertiser because "it don't half pitGh into them-adjective boaks, like t'other rag, which, he adds, has the same aversion to magistrates generally, and police magistrates in particular, that a turkey has for a red rag. Now I am a new chum, and cannot sympa thise with "old Bill," although the aforesaid individual is a distinguished patriot, who for years laboured gratuitously in the formation of the roads of this colony, was a dog-fancier, cockfightcr, etc., and a member of the P. R. Morgan is his hero, Mr. Baylis his aversion. His arduous labours in past years have now affected his constitution. He sulFers severely from dipsomania, and is often, when in Wagga Wagga afflicted with an almost unquenchable thirst. During the severity of its paroxysms he will often stand in the high way, and th...
THE CONVENT SCANDAL. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 19 May 1869
THE CONVENT SCANDAL. The great convent scandal, of which I wrote you by the last mail, termin ated that day-the twentieth of the trial. The Lord Chief Justice delivered a long and able summing1 up, inclining somewhat to the defendants ; but the remarkable speech of the Solicitor General on the previous day had ap parently settled the question with the jury. They returned a verdict for the plaintiff on the counts charging con spiracy and libel, with £200 damages,. and the return of Sister Scholastica's dower (£300), and for the defendants on the other counts for assault and im prisonment. The result seems to give satisfaction, the public being generally agreed that the charges made against Miss "Saurin to expel her from the nunnery were trumped up, and that Mrs. &fcar had proved herself an adept in" the arts of petty persecution. On the other hand, Miss Saurin must have been a troublesome body; and, as the public think her extremely foolish to be so determined to stay in such...

It may bo worth remark, that tlio fortunate Thursday on which tho llain (a largo K. by all means) com menced to fall in our latest extremity, was also preceded by similar tropical abnormal days and nights. \ For some years past, a theory lias been ' ; gaining ground with mo, not unshared by others, that our seasons follow the European seasons with a kind of rough fidelity, allow ing for difforenco of climatic habit. My obaoi vation of the-years since 1804 in this district has all boon in corroboration. For instance; 1865-G.-Very dry in England; brooks ceasing to run ; no rain for six woelcs ; green crop suffering much. A drought in great portion of N. S. Wales. ...

THE TICHBORNE CLAIMANT. According to the solicitors acting1 for tho Australian claimant of the Tichborne estates, that gentleman, in stead of having been massacred by the Indians, or having gone in quest of a gold-mine in the interior of South America, has returned to England. His friends report that the result of the commission is satisfactory. It is said that tho action will be tried on the earliest possible day, and that the plaintiff and his friends are anxious to' bring it to an issue.

DETENTION* OF MAILS.-No Sydney mail was received here on Sunday last, the double mail'arriving late on Monday afternoon.

On the ireseut occasion, we hear that the cause was the knocking up of the horses somewhere between Yass and Tarcutta.

THEKE is one item in ^lie English in telligence by the last mail which mast be held to mark an era in Australian history.

NEWS BY THE MAIL. (From the Argus.) GREAT MINISTERIAL TRIUMPH. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 19 May 1869
NEWS BY THE MAIL. (From the Argnt.) GREAT MINISTERIAL TRIUMPH. THE great event of the month has been the debate on the Irish Church Bill. The first division was taken on the second reading, when the Government obtained the large majority of 118. No such majority ha3 ever been found to sustain the policy of any Minister in recent times. Of late years that Premier has counted himself happy who on a vital question could carry with him a majority of ten or twenty. These overwhelming numbers seal the doom of the Irish Establishment They represent the verdict of the elections ; and the House of Lords will scarcely dare to sot itself in deliberate opposi tion to the declared will of the nation.
