NEWS BY THE MAIL. (From the London Letter of the Argus.) Swindling Extaaordinary. Some public interest also attaches to the disappearance of Benjamin Higgs, Into of Tide End House, Teddiiigton, who absconded last month from the enployment of the Great Central Gas Company, in whoso service lie had been for several years. His salary was under £400 per annum ; but when he made off he was living in a bouse of thirty rooms, sumptuously furnished with every internal and external luxury and appurtenanco. Ho had several fine carriages, of horses and ponies quite a stud, and a housohold of six teen servants. His wife's piano cost 300 guineas, aiul he was building himself a new mansion, to the tune of £50,000. In short, ho was tho lord and patron of Tcddington, and extremely benevolent with money that did not liolong to him. Mr. Higgs has made his way to Amcrica, leaving lus wife and a family of children in destitution, suddenly precipitated, without any knowledge of his transaction.
SALMAGUNDI. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 12 June 1869
SALMAGUNDI. IT is largely owing to your earnest and re peated appeals to tlio feelings of the local patrons and the public, that so spirited ai^l liberal a response has been made to the ap plication for popular assistance towards the erection of a new Public School on another and more eligible site. Subscriptions arc in the hands of several persons,, and although the process of collecting, may be slow and troublesome, I have the fullest hope that the sum required will be raised. Another voice from the grave.yard! Another appeal from the mouldering aslies of the sacred dead, against the unhallowed desecration of what should be holy ground ! I Twice recently, this painful subject has been I referred to in your columns. The letters signed ' f-William Kand" and "A Man about Town," are all too painfully true in their de tails. It is said by those versed in such matters, that the present contractor for Hos pital funerals has taken the worlc so low ? that lie cannot afford to pay men to ca...
TABLE TALK. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 12 June 1869
TABLE TALK. I ONCE lived in little Peddlington. It was a charming residence, and, if the theory of a reverend friend of mine be correct, that houses are typical of the domestic virtues, must have been eminently virtuous, for in it were many houses, and all of them, very much alike. I remember being particularly struck with the genial, easy, social habits of the little Peddlingtoniaus. There was a charin about their very tea-parties which one does not usually associate with that form of dissipa-. tion, and a radiance in their little stuffy back-parlours and band-box drawing-rooms, which I have looked for in vain in far more pretentious salons. The charm, I used to fancy, laid chiefly iu the fact that there were 110 big little Peddlingtoniaus and the radiance-well, a good deal of it in double waxes,-it was before the days of kerosene, atmospheric illuminators and other similar new fangled notions-and in the eyes of gentle women. These good people being all on a. dead level in the impo...
MELBOURNE MEMS. 6th Juno, 1869. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 12 June 1869
MELBOURNE MEMS, 6th Juno, 1869. [I'nost OCR OWN CORUESroNDHNI'.] Wii are awaiting the passing'of the Land Bill. The next reading is appointed for Tuesday lioxt. It is generally Understood that tho measure will pass with some nominal altera tions. One of tho noticable features of tho proposed Act, is tho maimer in which it will dispose of the difficulties arising respecting the alienation of auriferous land. The Act clnuso authorises the Crown to resumo pos session for mining purposes of any land alie nated under tho Act, by a simple payment of compensation, such compensation not to in clude the auriferous value. Tho terms upon which such lands are to be resumed, and upon which the arbitration is to be conducted, are to be determined from' to time by the Gov ernor. By the way, a return laid upon the table of the Assonibly, 011 Tuesday, shows how very liberally the Laud Bill has beeu construed by Mr. Grant. Tho number of transfers under the 47th clause, has been ^ very numerous, amoun...

THE STATION AND THE FARM* VINEYARD DRESSING. (From the Australasian.) WE'have "been favoured with a; Valu able letter on this subject by;a French gentleman, at present on a visit to these colonies, whose attention has been attracted by questions in this paper. M, Atnie, the writer, is entitled to spoak with authority. He spent throe years on one of the French model farms, and for another three years was engaged as assistant-director of the Imperial &lt; College at Grignon, and is now employed, under the authority of the French Government, in collecting agricultural and pastoral statistics in Australia. The following is a transla tion of M.

JOHN WESLEY AND ARCHDEACON LILLINGSTONE. "Stand between two Churchman."—RICHARD III. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 16 June 1869
WESLEY AND ARCHDEACON LILLINGSTONK "Stand between two Churchman."-RioirA.no III. | IT is hardly fair, cvou in theological cii'olog, to insult a mail, and then chaff him for defending himself and tho same thing may bo said of insult to a sect. At tho lato Church of Iiugland Synod more than 0110 clerical speaker indulged in language which worldlings, who pretend to be gcutlcraon, don t like to uso, and (perhaps sinfully) call snobbish. Mr. Punch alludes . snnply to the remarks made about tho Wes leyaus in connection with education. It was natural enough that tho party attacked should have a word to say in defence, and accordingly a Rev. Mr. Curnow, a Wesleyan minister, took up tho matter and delivered a lecture, which, in Mr. Punch's opinion, read very much like tho composition of a man of meekness, a lover of poace, and a man of refinement; or, to put the matter briefly, like the work of a -gentleman. The lecture was a very able, but a very teniperato vindication of tho lecturer's se...

In point of quality the majority of the cattle yarded may be classed as good useful beef, with a very few pons of prime, and the balance medium and inferior. About half the supply consisted of cows, and. they as a whole woro in the best condition, gouil ox beef being comparatively scarce. The opening sales, which comprised most of the inferior cattle, were very dull, anil the pr.cos obtained did not quite reach last week's rates, but eventually when better quality was offered the ^biddings became mora animated, and an advance was 'established, particularly for good pens of bullocks.

The Wool Market. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 16 June 1869
The Wool Market. Sixou the close of the last London sales, the colonial wool market lias been \ cry quiet, and neither in London nor in'the provinces is there much demand for the raw article." Tho quantity coming forward in out* May June series, which has been estimated as high as 2r>0,000 bales, will, Mr. ITelmuth Schwartze thinks, probably fall considerably short of that total; and as manufacturers are but slightly stocked, the prevalent opinion is that we shall see prices about tho same as in March last. The fresh sales are expected to open about the 6th of May. The arrivals amount to a total of .181,476 bales. At Liverpool, great inactivity has prevailed - in tho local wool market. To-day a series of public sales of low wool commences, when 2,600 bales of River Plato will bo offered. On tho 27th and following days, 13,000 bales of Esst India will bo brought forward ; and on the 4th of May and following days, 7000 bales of sundries will be submitted.
