APPRAISEMENT OF RUNS. LACHLAN DISTRICT. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express and Murrumbidgee District Advertiser — 20 October 1866
APPRAISEMENT OF RUNS. LAC~LA DsTRarcr. A counrt of Appraisement for those runs in the Lachlan District which had been assigned to John S. Futtor, Esq., was held at Rosette's Hotel, Booligal, on tile 1st and 2nd October. The Appraisers who had been appointed to act on behalf of tile Crown tenants were Messrs. W. A. Brodribb, C. W. Street, and Vesey Brown. Mr. T. B. Carne was appointed as umpire in every case, but the rents were all agreed upon by the ap. praisers themselves, and not a single case was re mitted to the umpire, who, however, to save the necessity for the evidence in cases in which evi dence was adduced being repeated, sat with the appraisers. Evidence was given in five cases, and the witnesses were examined on the part of the lessees by Mr. Robertaon, solicitor, of Deniliquin, who had been duly authorised to appear on their behalf. The rates fixed appeared to have given satisfaction, although they were not lower than it had been anticipated they would be. By Messrs. Fut...

THE COMING ASSIZES. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express and Murrumbidgee District Advertiser — 20 October 1866
THE COMING ASSIZES. NEXT week, for the second time, we shall welcome a Judge of the Supreme Court among us. The calendar is rather a heavy one, both as to the num ber and character of the oflences. It is a consola tion, however, to know that some of the worst cases are imported ones-not properly belonging to our own district. In the civil list, we believe, there are two libel cases, which will give an oppor tunity for opposing counsel to indulge in the usual platitudes about the sacred liberty of the press, on the one hand, and the danger of uncontrolled licentiousness on the other. If we might hazard the remark, we would venture to say that some Splain common-sense people do say that the learned gentlemen sometimes do appear to fight rather for victory than for truth. Of course, it is a scandld, but it inay admit of a question whether a limit might not at times be advantageously placed to the tedious cross-examination which amounts al enost to thebrow-boatingof witnesses, and wheth...

THE 'EMPIRE' ON SEPARATION. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express and Murrumbidgee District Advertiser — 20 October 1866
THE 'EMPIRE' ON SEPARATION. Tne facts accorded in the Registrar-General's Report for 1865, in relation to that part of the colony to -whicli the name "Riverina" has been given, and which were briefly noticed in the Empire of Wednesday last, are worthy of further consideration, in connection with the claims put forth by some ambitious individuals interested in that part of the colony, for its separation from New South Wales, and its erection into a new colony. On a comparison of the ratio of births to deaths in the several districts of the colony, it appears that while in Illawarra-or the sooth-eastern district, the births during the year 1865 were nearly five times as numerous as the deaths, the births in Riverina were only 376, that is, about half as many again as the deaths. The only place within the bounds of this vast district which exhibits anything like progressive colonisation is Wagga Wagga, where, the births were two and a half times as many as the deaths; or, in other word...

Sydney Jottings. Sydney, Oct. 15, 1866. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express and Murrumbidgee District Advertiser — 20 October 1866
SyCbirtaC $ottings. Fnot ovn owN connOESPONDRNT.) Sydney, Oct. 15, 186G. GREEN versus Hickey came off on the Parramatta River on Saturday afternoon, in the presence of a tremendious crowd of people, on board some seven or eight large steamers, all of which drew away from the circular Quay, abouthalf-past two o'clock, over-crowded with their living freight. It was some time after the arrival of these steamers on the ground before the combatants put in an appear ance, but when they did they were both hi very fine form. From the start Green took the lead, and kept it throughout the race. But the race, if such I am entitled to call it, was an unmitigated ell ; in fact, Hickey never tried to win it, and, as he stepped on board the steamer, when the race was over, he was loudly hissed, so evident had been this unmanly sell on his part. While, how ever, the race was nominally won by old Dick Green, Hickey still holds the championship, and could beat Green out and out whenever hlie likes to...
Colonial Summary. THE BANK SCREW. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express and Murrumbidgee District Advertiser — 20 October 1866
E1olonial. untttumatr . THE BANK SCREW. [FROM THE MBLBOURNE SPEOTATOn.J VeoTonsA has good cause to rejoice that the commercial tornado which has devastated England has not reached to this part of the world. No bank here has stopped payment; no solvent firm has been forced to suspend: there has been no panic such as that which raged in London in May last; nor has there evee been anything which could be termed a crisis. Still, the past six weeks have been a (Me of commercial depression and monetary ficnulty unparalleled, we believe, in the story of the colony. To describe the alady of the trading community accurately would require an adoption to the nomenclature of finance. "Tightness" does not express it, for that has been a chronic complaint for many years past, and that term has always been understood as descriptive of that neces sary caution which from time to time bankers and merchants are bound .to exercise, in order to protect themselves against doing business not merely unprof...

ILocal tttelligenc . THE ASSIZES. THiE second Wagga Wagga Circuit Court will open on Monday morning next at 10 o'clock, under the presidency of Mr. Justice Hargrave. The busi nass at Goulburn was not quite concluded on Sat urday night, one civil case then remaining still unheard, but as his Honor the Judge was obliged to 'set out for Wagga Wagga on Monday, tile Court was adjourned until November, when this case will be disposed of upon his return. The Solicitor-General prosecuted for the Crown at Goulburn, and Mr. Dalley also attended the Court, but both of these gentlemen have returned to Syd ney, and the only barristers expected here are Mr. Forbes, who will act as Crown Prosecutor, and Mr. Blake; Mr. G. M. Stephen is also expected. Mr. Justice Hargrave arrived in town yesterday. The criminal callendar is a heavy one ; but, upon the civil side only two cases are set down for trial. The business, it is anticipated, will scarcely be concluded within the week. The following is the li...
Correspondence. IMPOUNDING NOTICES. (To the Editor of the Express.) [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express and Murrumbidgee District Advertiser — 20 October 1866
4Orresponfb lte e. IMPOUNDING NOTICES. (To thle Editor of thle Expres.) Sm,-I am a small stockowner, living in the neighbourhood of Narandera, and for the last seven or eight weeks I have not seen any advertisements in your journal (to which I am a subscriber) having reference to stock impounded in the public pond at the abovenamed town. I should like to know the cause of your discontinuing inserting them, as it is rather hard for apoor man to lose his property when there is an easymnethod of securing it. For instance, a friend of jaine, not long since, lost a valuable cow, and it appears that she had been impounded, and subsequently sold. Now, if the poundkeeper had advertised this animal as being impounded, as he should have done, the originl owner vould have regained his property. The only notice residents here have of impounded stock, unless, indeed, they subscribe to the Government Gazette, in which, I believe, the poundkeeper is compelled to advertise alist of stock impounded,...

PARIS. (Wiri?en expn'eslfor. the Wagga Wagga Expre s.) Paa-S, 20th August, 1866. _Ioni I wrote you last, we have had much anxiety to go through; hut "all's well that ends 'well." There has been a great deial of scribbling, a great deal of travelling, beck wards and forwards, on the part of Cabinet couriers. The long and short of the matter isa that peace has returned, and all appear pleased' that the war has been brought to so speedy a termination; it is,. however, true ihit the storm which has crossed Europe is still rumbllihg in the distance; but let us iope that in a short time the political hori oun will be perfectly serne.
