BALLARAT LIVE STOCK MARKET. Wednesday, 11th November. MESSRS NORMAN R. MACLEOD AND CO., REPORT:— [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 18 November 1868

BALLARAT LIVE STOCK MARKET. Wednesday, 11th November.   MESSRS NORMAN R. MACLEOD AND CO. , REPORT :- FAT CATTLE.—The number forward for this week's market was only 292 head, a fair   proportion of which were good useful beef and seasonable weights. Although the trade was not very largely represented the biddings, were brisk for good quality, at an advance of about 20s ahead on last week's rates ; the rougher lots did not sell so freely but also brought higher prices. Quotations : Best pens bullocks, 8/ to 10/;   second, 6/ 10s to 7/ 10s ; inferior, 4/ 10s to 5/ 10s. FAT SHEEP.—10,070 were yarded, princi- pally good quality, and about two-thirds the number were shorn. At the com- mencement of the sales prices were quite 1s 6d lower than last week, but the trade   being bare of stock, and the presence of numerous buyers for boiling purposes, to- gether with the withdrawal of one large   lot, caused a reaction, and the la...

Wagga Wagga Advertiser "This is true liberty, when freeborn men, Having to advise the public, may speak free." MILTON. WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 18, 1868. THE PASTORAL SHOW. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 18 November 1868

Wagga Wagga Advertiser " This is true liberty, when freeborn men, Having to advise the public, may speak free."   MILTON. WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 18, 1868. THE PASTORAL SHOW. THE first great event 0f the week is over, and the Pastoral Show of 1868 is acknowledged to have been a great success. It is the fashion in. some quarters to speak pityingly of squatters and squatting—to regard both as having seen their best days, and as fall- ing into the sear and yellow leaf of inevit- able, because natural, decay. We sincerely trust that some of these croakers were courageous enough to visit the Pastoral Show of yesterday, and that they were edified when they got there. They must have rejoiced to find that, at all events, so far as this district is concerned, their benevolent predictions were premature—that not only were there no signs of decay, but that there was every indication of strength—that, in short, whether     judging from the number and condition...

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 18 November 1868

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. THE BACK COUNTRY.—Information from   gentlemen of the Lower Murrumbidgee con- veys the cheering intelligence of a consi- derable rainfall in places along the valley of the river, and to a distance of nine miles   back. Near Karrarberry fully an inch of rain fell, and also about Yarraba., The township of Hay was completely deluged. Considering the dreadful accounts we have heard of the stata of the country in these parts, this rainfall must be a perfect God- send, and more of the same blessing would, doubtless, be thankfully received.       FOUND DROWNED.—A melancholy accident happened, last week to a man named -Neil Clark. Deceased who was an old sea-captain, during one of the hot days of last week, re-   solved upon having a bathe, and having un-   dressed, walked out on a log, when he lost his balance, and falling into deep water, was drowned. His body was not recovered u...

THE MURRUMBIDGEE PASTORAL ASSOCIATION'S EXHIBITION. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 18 November 1868

THE MURRUMBIDGEE PASTORAL ASSOCIATION'S EXHIBITION. THE fourth exhibition of the Murrumbidgee Pastoral Association was held yesterday on the usual show ground; and we are glad to be able to congratulate the Association on its thorough success. Taken as a wholes the show of yesterday must be admitted to have been one of the most successful of the many successful efforts of this invaluable Society. The attendance of visitors was very large, and the expression of opinion was unanimous that a better Show has never been held at Wagga Wagga. In some respects it may be described as superior to any of its pre- decessors. The show of sheep, both as re- gards number and quality, surpassed that of any previous year, and it is a remarkable and significant fact that the prizes were much more evenly distributed than has hitherto been the rule. This seems to indicate that one of the main objects of the Association is already in a fair way of being realised, to wit, the improvement of the judgment ...

TURF TALK. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 18 November 1868

TURF TALK. THE arrival of the race week has filled Wagga with visitors, both strange and familiar.   The hotels are all crammed to repletion. Sleeping quarters of any kind, from a bed to a billiard table, are at a premium. Happy the man in these exciting times who is given to early hours and eschews parties and dissi- pation, mild or severe. Otherwise, (haply) returning in the small hours he may find the sanctity of his virtuous couch invaded, and the hirsute " mug " of some burly bushman snoring benignly at him from his own par- ticular pillow. Specially happy is the man who having a bed can manage to sleep in it, without being aroused about once a minute by the playfulness of his follow lodgers, dancing a bad imitation of the can-can under the verandah, or playing pitch and toss with the wash-hand basins in the next room. We have not much to report in the way of bet- ting. Messrs. Bradbury, Saqui, and Thomp- son have arrived, and are of course ready to accommodate the...

POLICE COURT. SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 14. (Before the Police Magistrate and. F. A. Tompson, Esq., J.P.) [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 18 November 1868

POLICE COURT. SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 14. (Before the Police Magistrate, and. F. A. Tompson, Esq., J.P.) CHARLES CHURCH was brought up on remand, charged by Messrs. Rasch and Coffin, of North Junee, with having, in the month of March, 1867, feloniously stolen a flock of 1040 fat sheep, the property of said Rasch and Coffin. Mr. Rasch was the only witness examined. Deponent stated that prisoner was in the service of the firm in March, 1867, and was entrusted with the flock of sheep referred to, for delivery to a commission agent at Braidwood, and was not authorised to sell any under any circumstances, except when animals became foot-sore and could not travel, or met with accidents, when the prisoner was to do the best he could in dis- posing of them, accounting for the money to his employers. Witness delivered the sheep to prisoner and saw him started. Heard in the course of a week or so that the sheep had been sold by prisoner, and immediately started for Binalong, where he found Mr. Mil...

ADJOURNED SPECIAL LICENSING       MEETING. (Before the Police Magistrate and J. Clarke, C. M. Lloyd, Geo. Mair, and F. A. Tompson, Esqs., J.P.) Henry Lovett applied by his solicitor, Mr. Fitzhardinge, for a General Publican's License for a new house at the Merool Crock, near Marangerril township, to be called the Merool Creek Inn. There was evidence that a house is badly wanted in this locality, and the police not having, filed any objections, and Frederick Chisholm and Geo. McDonald, Esqs. having certified to the good character and fitness of applicant, the certificate was granted. Murdock McKenzie, late landlord of " The Horse and Jockey Inn," at Tarcutta, applied again by his solicitor, Mr. Fitzhardinge, for the restoration of his license, the renewal of which, it may be rembered, was refused by the Bench at the Animal Licensing Meeting of April last, on complaint and proof by the police that applicant had failed to give im- portant informat...

NARANDERA. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 18 November 1868

NARANDERA. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.]     SINCE writing you last week we have been blessed with a delightful rain, which, of course, has had the double effect of freshen-   ing up the little feed there was left and cooling the atmosphere. The lower river received considerably the heaviest portion of the downfall, as both at the Yanko (Messrs. McNeill Brotliers') and Burrabogie the rain gauge proved 80 points, or nearly one inch. At Benerembah station most of the back dams are quite filled, rendering available an immensity of country previously almost an   eye-sore to the proprietor on account of the large amount of feed (much required by the stock) and the impossibility of using it through the total absence of water. In fact,   the glorious rain has removed a great anxiety from the minds of all stock-owners. I am happy to say that great hopes are entertained of the eventual recovery of the unfortunate man so severel...

No notice will be taken of anonymous communications, and no rejected communications will be returned. LOCAL FLOOD RELIEF FUND. To the Editor of the Wagga Wagga Advertiser. SIR,—By consent of the Central Flood Relief   Committee of Sydney, the sum of one hun- dred pounds was withheld from the large amount so liberally subscribed here, for dis- tribution amongst local sufferers, of whom there were several. As a long period has elapsed since the amount referred to was allocated, and no published account (so far as I am aware) has yet been rendered of its appropriation and expenditure, I am, in common with many other interested persons, anxious to know who has the money, or what has become of it. Perhaps the gentlemen whoso duty it is, or was, to render an account of this matter will take the hint, and satisfy     &nbsp...

PUNT TOLLS. To the Editor of the Wagga Wagga Advertiser. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 18 November 1868

PUNT TOLLS. To the Editor of the Wagga Wagga Advertiser.   SIR,—Like the drowning man clutching at a straw, so the directors of the Wagga Wagga Bridge have come to the conclusion that it is their turn to make their charges reasonable and suitable to the times. It would be very beneficial to the public if the gentleman owning the Narandera punt would follow their example, by becoming just and reason- able in his charges. I had to cross a bag of flour some time since with a few small articles, not amounting in value to more than a few shillings, and was charged four shil- lings, the punt not crossing for that alone, but for a dray for which was charged eight shillings. I should say everything should be charged according to work done. Furthermore, the high rate is not the only grievance of which one has to complain in commotion with this punt. The whole con- duct of it is one mass of grievances. To cross eight thousand sheep they take a couple of days, besides knocking the...

THE POST OFFICE. (To the Editor of the W. W. Advertiser.) [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 18 November 1868

THE POST OFFICE. (To the Editor of the W. W. Advertiser SIR,—My attention has been drawn to a letter signed L. W. U. in your issue of Satur- day, complaining of Post Office irregularities. I consider it due to the Postmaster to offer a few remarks in reply to that letter.   On the subject of Tuesday's irregularity, (if such occurred), I can say nothing. I am   inclined to think, however, that the writer,   when he penned the letter, intended to confine his complaint to Monday only, and inserted the word " Tuesday" erroneously. Are Post Office officials to have no rest ?— Are they to be excluded altogether from the occasional enjoyment of holiday recreation which, doubtless, L. W. U. considers very essential as a mental tonic, and physical reno-   vator in his own case ? Monday was a gazetted public holiday, but the Post Office was open sufficiently long to accommodate a holiday public, and too long for the officials to enjoy themse...

GENERAL NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 18 November 1868

GENERAL NEWS. FORGING TRADE MARKS.—In the course of the action Flynn and wife v. Wilson, in which the alleged wrongful use of trade marks was involved, His Honor the Chief Justice said that the practice of forging trade marks was very common in this colony. He had once caught a tradesman in the act of affixing the trade labels of an English firm to colonial manufacture, and upon remonstrating with him and pointing out the risk he incurred, he was met with the argument that the goods which were thus represented by aid of the forged marks as of English manufacture were, albeit colonial, very much superior, but that the absurd prejudices of the public against colonial manufactures rendered it necessary that the vendor should palm them off as English, in order to obtain a fair price. The argument was plausible, but the offence was none the loss complete. Forging a trade mark was a gross fraud, and he desired that it should be generally known that it subjected the perpetrator to the risk...

WOOL WASHING. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 18 November 1868

WOOL WASHING. The question which has been much discussed lately is as to the best mode of washing sheep, whether the dip, or the spout, or both are most advantageous ; and what soap, in proper proportions, is the best for the use of the owner, taking into consideration economy   and the condition of the wool after the ope- ration. Capital will command anything, and a long purse need not look at the cost of a centrifugal pump and steam-engines ; but those who are cramped in their resources must " cut their coat according to their cloth," and for this section of growers we have endeavoured to collect a little infor- mation. During last week we inspected   several wool-washing establishments in and near Melbourne, 0n purpose to elicit the opi- nions of practical washers, and to obtain in- formation, if possible, as to the most effective determents, whether soft or bar soap, and as to which of the liquids now manufactured as wool-scouring and bleaching fluids m...

SELECT POETRY. WELCOME HOME TO YOU. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 18 November 1868

SELECT POETRY. WELCOME HOME TO YOU. A HUNDRED thousand welcomes, and 'tis time for you to come From the far land of the foreigner, to your country and your home. Oh, long as we are parted-ever since you went away,     I never passed a dreamless night, or knew an easy day. Do you think I would reproach you with the sorrows that I bore ?   Sure the sorrow is all over, now I have you here once more— And there's nothing left but gladness and the love within my heart, And the hope, so sweet and certain, that again we'll never part. Did the strangers come around you, with true heart and loving hand ? Did they comfort and console you, when you sickened in their land ? Had they pleasant smiles to court you, and silver words to bind ? Had they hearts more fond and loyal than the hearts you left behind ?   There's a quiver on your proud lip, and a paleness on your brow ; May be, if they so loved you, you would not be near me now.

LITERARY EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 18 November 1868

LITERARY EXTRACTS, SHAM ROUE'S.—Shams are always detestable. Sham goodness is bad enough, but sham wickedness is worse. Yet the affectation of criminality is one of the features of the young men of the present day. The ingenuus puer, ætat 20, has committed, by his own hinted showing, all the seven deadly sins seven times over. He has had what a Frenchman would call a jeunesse orageus, and affects cynicism and utter soul-weariness. " Not to desire and admire, if men only knew it, were more than to walk like the Sultan of old in a garden of spice," says Tennyson, and he is right. Only our ingenious puer affects indifference. He cannot help desiring and admiring, but he pretends   to be blasé. He will sneer at all that is good and pure, not because he has found out that goodness and purity are simply relative terms, but because he   thinks that vice is manly, and purity a quality confined to school girls and Horniman's teas. He will assume selfishness when he ...
