A MOTHER'S TRIALS. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express and Murrumbidgee District Advertiser — 8 January 1859
A MOTHER'S TRIALS. (From the Ad.long SIininr Journal.f When I thinkof all the tenderness With which a mother loves-- The mightypains and penalties With which that love she proves; The watchings, sighs,, and tears it'costs- S Its joys and its despair--- ' I cry God help. them cloud or' hiiie, Anýd shield-their hearts 'with prayer. . Remember when life's sky is bright, The dark days, for they'll com'; There's many a little coffin made; There's iany a timeless tomb: Deith cares not for the breaking heart--. Heeds not the choking sigh . He seals the pretty prattling lips, And dims the sparkling eye. . An l sofetimoes with redoihled stroke The nimourner he wil smite, That makes the thoughtful stand agast . And tremble at his might: ' Two darlings in one day alas 'His rage canrlot arrest-- Hertears two' nestling claspersinore;' : Froni the poor mother's breast. Poor .trickdoi ohe, if syrimnathy . ,'..

NORTH WAGGA WAGGA ANNUAL RACES. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express and Murrumbidgee District Advertiser — 8 January 1859
NORThI WAGGA WAGGA ANNUALI RACES. On Monday last these races wore held on the North WVagga Wagga Race-course. The weather overhead was beautiful; the state of the course very good. We cannot patrticularise the odds on any of the events, but we have reason to believe that a large sum of money changed hands during the meeting:: The attendance was very nmtmerou:, more. so we believe than at any of the previous meetings held at this season of the year. Among those present was a large portion of the fair sex. VWe have to notice one or two accidents during the meeting. That of Mr. Wagdon, who was thrown from his horse dur ing the hurdle race, on the last day. He was slightly bruised about the face. The other, a young man, named Joseph Palmer, who was thrown from his-horse and had his arm bsoke, Dr. Morgan was in attendance and set his arm. At last accounts he was doing well. We hope this will be a lesson to him in future, and that he will not he quite so farst. FIeST DAY.. FrasT Raca.---M...

For twenty years of my life past, I've studied much this question, And:I.begin to think at last Its had mature rrflection. Yet, after study pro and con, The question seems to be, Not, whether I will take a wife-? But, will a wife take me ? Then 7Vanity, that sly old jade, Sift whispers in my ear, You'll get a avidow---nay, a mnaid, To have you---never fear. So, thus encouraged, I'm inclined To hope for some wife yet, And, if she prove not lame or blind, ,Ill take her too my tent. ?-'Tis true I'm poor in goods and pelf (The complaint is heard of daily).

S ' RURAT: AFFAIRS. (lh tge Editor 'of te WPagga Wagga Erprese.) ra---In none of the numbers of the Exprez n has there appeared any article relating to what may he termed the rural affairs of the district. This,'T. onsider to be a want, and therefore, atthe beginning of the year 'send you a few particulars, which I hope may not:be lininter oating to the generality of your readers, and lot unacceptable to those who reside at a dis ''ance, who :take, a. interest in the 'prosperity nf the district.

DENILIQUIN. [PRO.Mi OU OWN CORREoRPONDENT.] 0- Naw YARn's" Ev].-About fifty of the inhabitants of South Deniliquin sat down to a splendid dinner at the Highlander'slInn, provided by Mr. F. Burrows free, and 'it really did the host and hostess great credit, both in the beautiful style it was got up and the quiet comfortable way it passed over: Daicing was kept up until morning. About eleven o'clock a rathea discordant noise was heard in distance, but on its approaching nearer it was found to be no less a personage than Mr. T. Taylor, of the Royal Hotel, reting as commander-in chbief over about thirty blackfellows and ten or twelve -whites, with. all sorts of instruments from the' violin to lids of saucepans, .clashing them toge ther to create a sound; and marching down .the -township on leaving the Royal Hotel, they went to the High landers Inn, and :the, whole set up a kind of dancing and shouting, finishing with three cheers for Mr. and Mrs. Burrows. -Bottled porter and ale was pas...

It is not my intenition to go into detail on the abuse of one, the vuilgarity of a second, the ignorant assumption of a third, or the long-eared stupidity of a' fourth, hut to ask them what they think of them selves.

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. WAGGA WAGGA CORRESPONDENCE.---We cannot but feel.an amiitsement, and sincerely hope our readersdo, at-the laughable manner' in' which our elder contemporary, the 'Yass Cobrier, with so little sense answers our com plaints of his Wagga Wagga 'correspondent. It decidedly remunds us of the school-boy accused 'of stealing .an apple, and when punished tried to inflict the same punishment upon those who helped him to eat it. It is well knownathat an enlightened public will not tolerate an unenlightened press, and the language of our contemporary places him bHlow the level. The mind of a journalist should keep pace with the mind of the public, and the language of an editor should not be so vulgar as to grate upon the ear. We care not for his vulgar assertions, knowing them to be unfounded. Nor does he attempt to exonerate himself or'his Wagga 'Wagga cor respondent from the charge,. but returns to his pugilistic practice of attempting blow for blow. We are proud of our Y...
