TRANSFER OF CONDITIONAL PURCHASES. (Herald.) [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 14 June 1879

TRANSFER OF CONDITIONAL PURCHASES. ( Herald.) On the fltli of February, 1878, certain returns were ordered by the Legislative Assembly respecting the pastoral and the free-selected lands of tbe colony up to that date. The returns in regard to the pastoral lands were furnished just in time for tbe debates on the Farnell Land Bill, and thev have been larselv used during the debates on the bill now before Parliament, inaccurate and de fective though they are. The returns respecting the transfer of free selections have not yet appeared, but last week a half sheet was issued from Mr. A. O. Moriarty's office giving the total num- j ber of transfers aud of selections trans- , ferred up to the 31st December, 1877. Tho first was 22,000 ; the second 1 48,175, from which it appears that the | same Act of transfer included several j selections.

People interested in the sheep and cattle farming will be glad to hear (says the Logan Witness) that Captain Buclian-Hepburn, of Coorangall, Ne rand Creek, has just imported by the good ship Glengaber (Captain Gray) two splendid pairs of Scotch colley dags. These renowned dogs are used in cattle and sheep driving, and are greatly prized by farmers, shepherds, and drovers. They can do nearly every thing with a herd of cattle or a flock of sheep. They are very scarce in this colony, and Captain Buchan-Hepbum uas paid, over tor tlie purchase, freight, aud passages out to this colony of these four animals. The dogs are all prizctakers at the famous agricultural show of Berwick-upon-Tweed, and were bred — .one pair at Paxton in Barwich sliire, aud the other pair at Smeaton Hepburn in Haddingtonshire. .

The Funeral. The funeral of the late Hon. Edward 1 Butler, Q.C., which' took place on Wednesday morning, was remarkable in the highest degree as proving the esteem and love in which the deceased i gentleman was held by all classes of the j community, from the highest to the to the lowest.

Among those present were liis Excellency the Lieu tenant-Governor Sir Alfred Stephen ; Sir John Hay, President of the Legis lative Council j Sir G. W.

THE LATE HON. EDWARD BUTLER, Q.C. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 14 June 1879

THE LATE HON. EDWARD BUTLER, Q.C. (Echo.) In the Legislative Council, on Tuesday, the President announced to the House the decease of the Hon. Edward Butler, Q.C., a member of the House. Sir John Robertson said : Mr. Presi dent, I am quite sure that every member of this Chamber must feel pained, as I do, that we are called upon now to do all that is left for us to do to show our respect for the memory of our late departed colleague, which is to move tlie adjournment of the House. It is the least we can do to express our great respect for Mr. Butler, and our deep sympathy with his family. 1 am quite sure we all feel that a great and good man has departed from among us — (hear, hear) — that we in this Council, us well as the people of this country, have lost a valuable member and a valuable citizen. So far as I am con cerned, being perhaps more prone than some men to allow tbe roots of friend ship to sink deeply into my heart, I feel, perhaps, more than is usually felt on occasions su...

ALARMING ACCIDENT IN A MINE. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 14 June 1879

ALARMING ACCIDENT IN A MINE. An accident of rather an exciting nature occurred on Friday afternoon (tlie j Stawell Chronicle reports) at tlie Great Southern Mine, Garden Gull}'. In the morning a new Bessemer steel wire rope was fixed on the winding-drum, and hauling water was commenced from the No. 3 shaft. The rope was supplied specially by a Melbourne firm, and it was guaranteed to bear a strain of 15 tons. Work went on properly until about 80 tanks of water had been brought up. Then, in hauling another, there was a sudden snap when the cage had been brought to within 60 feet of the surface. The cage, an ordinary one, and the tank at once fell crashing to the bottom of the shaft, a distance of about 300 feet The distance of the winding plant from the shaft is about 1 350 feet. As the rope snapped about 30 feet from tlie engine-house a length of something like 300 feet was left between there and the poppet heads. I This 300 feet of heavy wire went slashing along, following the desc...

SPIRIT OF THE PRESS. THE MUNICIPAL DIFFICULTY AT ALBURY. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 14 June 1879

SPIRIT OP THE PRESS. The Municipal Difficulty at Albury. (Border Post.) The reversal by the Supreme Court of the obnoxious ruling of the late Re turning Officer, Mr. W. J.

THE INTERVIEW WITH THE GOVERNOR. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 14 June 1879

The Interview with the Governor. Shortly after noon his Excellency Sir Alfred Stephen arrived at Government House. In the ante-room, waiting to see him, were Amelia Elizabeth Clarke Smith, the victim of the outrage, Mrs. Elizabeth Smith, her mother ; James ivietcane, siep-iatner oi tne uoy now under sentence of death, and Jane Met calfe, his mother. Mr. Hugh Taylor, M.P., was also present, and the party were conducted to the reception room, where his Excellency was sitting at his table. Mr. Hugh Taylor at once came for ward, and after stating the names of those present, said they were there before his Excellency to ask him to extend to the boys Metcalfe and Wilkinson, now doomed to die, that mercy, which they one day all expected to have given them. Mrs. Metcalfe then knelt down be fore the Governor, and said in piteous tones, 'Will yon spare him, sir?' His Excellency : ' You must not kneel to me.'

THE EXECUTION OF ALFRED. (Evening News.) [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 14 June 1879

The Execution of Alfred. ( Evening News.) The wretched aboriginal at Mudgee has been launched into eternity in spite of the appeals for mercy by many thousands of his fellow-countrymen of a different race who utterly abhorred the crime of which he was guilty. Everything that could be done by the populace to save his life was done, and his blood rests upon the head of Sir Alfred 'Stephen and his advisers. We doubt whether a similar case could be found in the records of the recent ad ministration of the law in England ; it is there recognised that something is due to the people as well as to justice, and if the citizens, in a calm and temperate manner, ask life as a favour from the Crown, it is rarely refused. But here, under our free government, the case is different, and for the moment we are living under an absolutism. As the voice of the people has no weight with tlie Governor, it is to be hoped that some other influences will cause him to be more merciful ere the week closes, and...

Before waiting on his Excellency, the girl and her mother came to the office of this journal, and Mr. Smith explained her mission. The girl is 15 years of age, and is rather large for her years, strong-looking and plump. Mrs. Smith narrated lier case in a simple, unassuming, but earnest manner. She and her husband had been many years residing in that part of the country. They have a large family, but her husband has been in capacitated for the last seven years, and she is therefore almost the sole support of the family, consisting of nine children The youth Metcalf they had known for some five years past ; and only the day before the outr...

INDUSTRIAL OCCUPATION OF WOMEN. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 14 June 1879

Industrial Occupation gf Women. ( [Bmrangong Argus.) Here, even more than in England the doctrine is nourished that the pro fession of woman is marriage ; and it is so sedulously impressed on the minds of young girls, generally by their maternal parent, who had in her time been so taught, that they absolutely neglect the teaching of what would, in all probability, render them independent and respectable. Nothing in the whole range of morals is more degrading or humiliating than the hope and training for a life of dependence. It ignores all the higher aspirations of humanity that aim at the greatest possible exemption from reliance oil others. Young women who regard marriage as their sole mission in the world often suffer from the error of their opinion, by the con stant strain they involuntarily put upon themselves to avoid that lone land which is said to be inhabited by neglected spinsters. They would, in their infatuation, prefer the dependent life — that is not brightened by love...

THE HARRINGTON SELECTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 14 June 1879

The Harrington Selections. (S. M. Herald.) The Harringtons' selections on the Yanko Reserve form another chapter in the history of free selection, the moral of which seems to be that money will tell. The Legislature designed that free selectors should liave an un doubted right to take up any unim proved urown lands they desired ; bat the squatters do not relish being dis possessed, and the ingenuity of the land agents has found out many effective checks against the intruders. In this case the Hrrringtons made their selec tions in due form, and as soon as the lessees became aware of their propin quity they proceeded to erect a fence about three miles long in. a zig-zag direction, which had tlie effectof severing the selections, and of shutting out access from a large portion of the land to the Yanco Creek. Messrs. Wilson and Ranken appear to have had no difficulty in persuading Mr. Garrett to allow the lessees (Robertson Brothers) a strip of land nine chains wide along the course of ...
