MINISTERIAL COURTESIES. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express and Murrumbidgee District Advertiser — 6 October 1866
MINISTERIAL COURTESaIS. MiINISTEmS and ex-iinisters "of the Crown" as the members of our Colonial Cabinets, by an absurd make-believe figure of speech are ever delighting to dub themelves, are not always remarkable for elegance of language or refinement of manners. In the Assembly, on the evening of the 28th ult., an altercation occurred between thepresent and thelate Minister for Lands, which resulted in the one heon. gentleman requesting the other hon.'gentleman, in the regular drunken pot-house style to " come out side," with the view, it is to be presumed, of settling their differences by a fistic oncounter. Mr. Robertson, in reply to some remarks of Mr. Wilh son's, in reference to the contemplated Government measure dealing with the land reserves, asked when that measure would be introduced, and only elicited the larconic reply, "when it was ready." Mr. Rob Robertson then said the hen. Minister determined to give him a very small amount of fair play in the matter, and lihad mad...

The Judge: Have you any other grounds ? •Kelly: I have plenty of other grounds. °The Judge: But you are tallking of the evidence, when it is only on points of law I should hear you.

LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express and Murrumbidgee District Advertiser — 6 October 1866
LEGISLATIVE ASSacBRLY. The adjourned debate on the Public Schools Bill was resumed by MIr. Maclherson, who ob jected to the Bill, on account of the large powers it nave to the Colonial Secretary; the virtual an nihilation of the Denouminational system which its passage would achieve; and the virtual provisions for gratuitous education which it would afford. He moved that it be read a second time that day six months. The motion was negatived. Mr. Egan thought the voice of the people ought to be attended to, and that it was unfair to press on the matter now. Mr. Forlonge opposed the Bill as fraught with danger, as tending to deprive parents of the power of educating their children as they saw fit. The debate upon the motion of Mr. Campbell was adjourned for one week.

FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 28. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express and Murrumbidgee District Advertiser — 6 October 1866
FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 28. Mr. Buchanan moved that in the opinion of this House thie late enormous reserves were a violation of the true spirit of the Land Act, and that the Government should cancel them all forthwith, with the view of making such reserves as may be deemed necessary, not for the squatters, but for purpose of protecting the use of water for the general' publio. Mr. Wilson said the interests of the publie would suffer if the motion was adopted. The Government were proceeding in a deliberate way. MIr. Robertson did not consider any of the reserves had interfered with free selectors. After much discussion, recrimination, and taunting, be ween the present and the late Minister for Lands, and other hon. members, the House was counted out.
Sydney Jottings. Sydney, Oct., 1, 1866. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express and Murrumbidgee District Advertiser — 6 October 1866
[Frow ovu ows coniiiESPOsNDENT.) Sydney, Oct., 1, 18866. THEF Financial Statement made by the Colonial Treasurer on Thursday evening is the all-absorbing topic of conversation. It has been received with some considerable mistrust, as New Sodth V-leYs1 men have become so used to a deficit that the pro mise of a purse of £300,000 long at the end of 1887 is something almost, in their opinion, impossiblhe. However, such a promise as this was 'made by the worthy Treasurer on Thursday last, besides a small surplus of £28,000 for this year. He also spoke very cheeringly indeed of the facility hlie had met with in his borrowing operations from the Savings Bank and Mutual Provident Society, and was going open-mouthed into the detail of his proceedings when he abruptly stopped on arriving at the second loan from the Mutual Provident Society. About tile second loan, there are some strange rumours afloat, and, no doubt, some questions will be asked on the subject when the House again meets in C...

Etttuut. [mnoM OUR CORESPObEDRT.] "PoRTNrrs and prodigies are grown so frequent ;that they hatve lost their name." Tumut forms an exception to other townships, inasmuch as that whilst other similar towns have a meagre allowance of intellect it has a redundancy. But then there are different degrees of intellect, after the samne manner as in the word sense. As, for instance, there is good sense, common sense, and noisence, and so with the word intellect. It is non-intellect which has such a superabundancy in this otherwise favored locality, which shows itself in so many ecdentric moods, and which is deeply to be deplored. You have seen that splendid pro duct of the ima"ination, conceived and brought forth by a school, or rather a trio, of these non intellectual worthies-" The Woman in Blalck,.&c.

j3atzitanentar~ ~.immar. TUESDAY, SEPTEMIBER 25, 1866. LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY. IN answer to questions, Ministers stated that it was not the intention of the Government to make any overtures to the Govermnents of nelghbouring colonies for devising any scheme for the Federation of the Australian Colonies ;-and that it was not thie intention of the Government to interefere with the principle of free seleetion, or to establish graz ing rights which wvould have thie effect of excluding large areas from the operation of that principle. Mr. Forster moved that a select committee be ap pointed to consider the cx'pediency of altering t?eo number of the members of the House, and correct ing certain anomalies in the representation, by the reconstruction or division of existing electoral dis tricts if required. Mr. Parkes said the Govern. ment had no objection to the appointment of the committee, which was likely to be productive of publio benefit. After some discussion upon the unequal distiibuti...
