LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express and Murrumbidgee District Advertiser — 22 September 1866
LeEGoSLATE ASSEn?LY. MIr. Parkcs moved the second reading of the Public Schools Bill. He cited Lord Macaulay t' show the necessity of education being conducted by .. the State, and referred to the cases of Denmark, i Holland, Prussia, and France, and to the results of T" education in Canada and the United States. The result of the efforts made in behalf of Education ii this colony since 1846 showed that there were 97,000 children in a state of ignorance. Tho educatioh that had been given was expensive and it iwas sectarian in character. The bill before the House provided for the appointment'of a Council, of whom the Colonial Secretary would ex oficio be the head, and he would in due course become tho:. Minister of Education. The Council would not be . ' permanent. The main provision of the Bill was contained in the sixth clause, which provided for. * the establishment of public scheols, while it.. enabled Denominational schools to be established. on certain conditions.

THE WORK OF THE SESSION. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express and Murrumbidgee District Advertiser — 22 September 1866
THE WORK OF THE SESSION. PARLIAME?r has now been in sitting for two months. and still the real work of the Session can scarcely be said even yet to have commenced. Be fore [the opening, it was said that the members :.w'ould be called together early, in order that all the public business might be got through before the end of the year, but, if we may judge by present appearances, all Ministerial utterances in reference to this matter were not entitled to that confidence which, at the time of their delivery, wos generally "rdposed in them. Now that Parliament is in Ses siaion,, and the opportunity for legislationi is present, thero?lipparently exists a strong disinclination to approach any subject which might endanger the harmony of existing combinations. All those ques. - tions in the solution of whichl the country is most ' deeply interested have beanavoided by the 'Govern. ment. True, an Education Bill has been intro dueed, and this, we will admit, deals with a ques Stipn the impor...

DEATH OF SUB-INSPECTOR MORROW. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express and Murrumbidgee District Advertiser — 22 September 1866
DEATH OF SUB-INSPECTOB l MORROW. IT is with deep regret we have to announce that, on Saturday last, this indefatigable officer of police breathed his last. Mr. Morrowy's illness has been of long duration, and weas, no doubt, in a great mamnner, induced by continued campings and exposure in the bush when in pursuit ofthe ruffian Morgan. Constant wettings and exposure at length brought on an affection of the throat, which so far deprived him of hIis voice that hlie was unable to carry on any conversation in higher tones than an ordinary whispor. After leaving Wagga Wagga, he was for a time stationed at Densiquin, but some seven or eight months ago he obtained leave of absence, and proceeded to New Zealand on a visit to his relatives, for the benefit of his health. He there received the best medical attendance the colony could afford, and his health so improved that he confidently looked forward to its complete restoration, and to the recovery of his voice, and he, therefore, in May la...

Colonial Summary. THE POOR BLACKS. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express and Murrumbidgee District Advertiser — 29 September 1866
Qolotiial Sumn mari . THE POOR BLACKS. Ovn brethren, as some of our white friends amusingly term these unsavoury creatures, are becoming a nuisance (where is it they do not?) on the Crocodile Creek diggings. With the scent of ajnackall lthey snuff the game and dog the steps of the miner, ready for a pil lage, or a snap at anything that lies in or out of their way. D)aring the last few days, these gentle creatures have been disporting them selves according to the forms and manners of their sires, making night hideous by a variety of howlings, ranging from the whining of a dog up to the screech of a kite, a kind of musical melange, which they generally keep up through the whole of the night. The amusement is often relieved by tomahawking and waddying each other as it jumps with their humour.' Five deaths, resulting from the effects of their midnight frays, have been reported to us during the last few days. On Thursdaey last, just before dusk, it seems that a large number of the blacks...
