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

GENERAL NEWS. THE South Australian Register's Blanche- town Letter of October 14 says :-" There arrived here this morning fifteen covered waggons, containing fifty-two German emi- grants, leaving this colony for Albury. Those leaving were accompanied by a large number of their friends in waggons and carts, who came with them thus far upon the road, and took leave of them here. The whole affair was a very interesting sight. Service was conducted by some of the elders of the people in the Iron Store upon the evening of their arrival, and the impression upon every looker-on could not have been otherwise than one of regret at seeing this hale and hearty band-evidently all men of some sub- stance—departing from amongst us. Two words, viz., ' land laws,' contain the pith of all replies to questions as to cause of this migration. The rival firms of law manufac- turers in South Australia all seem to be try ing to work up their old stock, tinkering a bit here and varnishing there; and they t...

AMONG SHARPS. (From All The Year Round.) [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 18 November 1868

AMONG SHARPS. (From All The Year Round.) IN February last, year, I came to London for a clay, on business which took me into the City. Having ac- complished the purpose of my visit more quickly than I expected, I was strolling leisurely along St. Paul's Churchyard, with the view of working my way into the Strand. The time of day was something after twelve at noon, and of all tho busy stream of people that flowed city ward or ebbed past me, it seemed that I was the only loiterer. A man, however, walking nearly as slowly as I, seeing me smoking as he passed, at last stopped and asked for a light. I gave him a match. He fell back a little out of the stream of traffic into the shelter of a shop window corner, to light his cigar in peace. He was a short man about six and thirty, with brown board and whiskers, face a trifle marked with small-pox, well dressed, and spoke with a strong (indeed, much too strong) American twang. As I continued my stroll, I soon became aware that I was followe...

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

LITERARY EXTRACTS. THE POET LONGFELLOW. — A man above the middle height, and although not stout, solid and well-proportioned ; head now a little bent, a noble, poetic head, with long waving hair, nearly white, reaching almost to the shoulder ; forehead high and square, the hair brushed well back ; blue, brilliant, genial eyes-true eyes of a poet, which observe everything ; a long nose, along mustache, which creeps down and joins a flowing white beard that rests upon his breast; the hair and beard not too sprucely arranged, carelessly and naturally disposed ; the whole counten- ance strikingly handsome, active wide awake, beaming with unusual intelli- gence ; of late patriarchal, the face of a poet philosopher, a fine and hitherto impossible study for the artist, for no artist has yet fixed a just portrait of Longfellow on canvas. His face needs the touch of an old master ; Titian would have done it worthily. The broad forehead is wrinkled rather with sorrow than great age, for the p...

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

MISCELLANEOUS NEWS. ONE of the sons of the Grand Duchess Mary of Leuchtenberg has run away with a fair lady, living as it would appear, under the protection of Prince Gortschakoff. His imperial uncle of Russia is pretty well accus- tomed to this sort of escape on the part of his nephews, and provided they do not ter- minate fatally—that is, in marriage—usually forgives the delinquent. The eldest Prince Nicolas, carried off a charming Russian danseusa, Mdle. Caroline ; and the second, called after his grandfather, the popular Prince Eugene, Vice-King of Italy, did his best to marry a French actress ; the third, Serquis, has fled across the frontier on the wings of love, in company with Prince Gort- schakoff's friend. A STRANGE anomaly is brought to light by some recent proceedings in a coroner's court in South London. If a man finds a drowned body and informs the authorities, he gets 8s. 6d. ; but if he saves the life of a drowning man he gets nothing. The coroner for East Surrey sta...

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

GENERAL NEWS. AUSTRALIAN WOOLS.—The Herald gives the following extract from the jury report of the French. Exhibition :- The general charac- teristic of Australian wools is their natural whiteness and elasticity, their strength and regularity. They are generally ductile, readily twisted, and equally suitable for carding and combing ; but when long of fibre and sufficiently strong, they are preferred for combing—a milky whiteness being of great value in this branch of manufacture. The considerable increase of production, which has nearly doubled within the last six or seven years, has proved most detrimental to the quality. Instead of there being two thirds of combing wool, there is now scarcely one-half of that quality; and this has not the same relative value as the two-thirds pre- viously obtained. The ratio of increase has been 11 to 12 per cent, per annum since 1662. Great care should be taken to prevent de- generation ; growers aim at quantity rather than quality. BATHUHST NATI...

STOCK REPORT. ADVERTISER Office, Friday Evening. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 21 November 1868

STOCK REPORT.   ADVERTISER Office, Friday Evening. This week we have again to note that thoroughly well got up clips of wool continue to maintain their value, and in soma instances are keenly contested for ; while, on the other hand, ill- conditioned clips are neglected, and great difficulty is experienced in realising such,   even at prices fully sustaining the extreme fall in the value of such wools. There is at   present, we are happy to say, every indica- tian of a change in the weather for the better, and we hope that the rain now gladdening our eyes may continue to fall for the next few days.     At Dubbo there have been some nice showers of rain, but they lasted too short a time to do much good, and the appearance of the country remains unchanged. At Welling-   ton they have been more fortunate, the rain falling heavily for several hours ; but on the Upper Bogan and Darling the cry is still for rain...

Good fat cattle may be quoted : For bullocks, 5/ 10s to 9/. Cows, 4/ 10s to 5/. FAT SHEEP.—No transactions. Buyers de- cline to accede to settlers' views as ta price. Prime fat wethers (shorn) are held at 6s to 7s per head, a quotation above buyers' views. STORE CATTLE. — Store cattle are still actively enquired for, and buyers are more disposed to come up to sellers' limits.

Bullocks, 60s, 70s, according to quality.       STORE SHEEP.—We have sold 6 prize ewes on account of John Dow, Esq., Toganmain, to Mr. R. B.

" This is true liberty, when freeborn men, Having to advise the public, may speak free." MILTON.   SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 21, 1868. The great race is over, and we have succeeded in making ourselves famous. We are sure to be talked about pretty extensively, for we have done what no one else , is in the habit of doing, and there is nothing like a little plucky eccentricity of this kind for shocking   the sensibilities of the critical. It is almost as sure that the criticism will not always be of the kindest. There is always a certain pleasure in finding fault with other people, and displaying our superior morality at the     expense of our neighbours. It is.       hardly possible that the soft-hearted but bitter-tongued critics of the metro- politan school will let slip so tempting an opportunity of improving our morals at our own cost. We shall be told     probably that we...

TELEGRAPHIC INTELLIGENCE SYDNEY. Friday, 9.15.   Further details of the New Zealand massacre show that the most horrible atrocities were committed. The troops attacked the rebels at Wairoa, but were repulsed, and Major Hunter was killed.                   Mr. Forster was elected without op-   position, Mr. Palser, having declined to contest. Mr. Robertson has returned from Grafton. The Commissionership of Customs   will be settled next week.   Fat cattle are fifteen shillings lower, but sheep continue unaltered.   The wool market is more active.

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 21 November 1868

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE.       A STUD FLOCK.—An announcement is made in our advertising columns which ought not to escape the notice of the many squatters and wool growers now assem- bled in Wagga Wagga. Messrs. Cross- ing and Cox, by instructions from the owner, Mr. J. J. Riley of Lowee, Mudgee, advertised for sale one thousand maiden ewes, the pick of the celebrated LUE flock. These sheep are in all respects the same as Mr. N. P. Bayly's and Mr. Cox's, and their wool has always realised within a shade of that pro- duced by these celebrated growers. Mr. Riley's station adjoins Mr. Bayly's and Mr. Cox's, and there has been a continual interchange of the stud stock under the di- rection of Mr Henry Blomfield, a manager of great experience and ability ; so that there can be no considerable difference between the LUE and Havilah stock. So many young ewes, the selection from so noted a station is an opportunity so seldom offered, that it ought not to pa...

WAGGA WAGGA ANNUAL RACES. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 21 November 1868

WAGGA WAGGA ANNUAL RACES. THE Wagga Wagga Race Meeting , of 1868 has been remarkable for two things—some of the best and some of the worst races that ever were run. No finer finish than that for the Grand Stand Handicap ever con-       vulsed a course, and anything more un- satisfactory than the easy victory of Easy John, or the trot for the Prince of Wales   Stakes never disgusted a loser. Of course   there were all the ups and downs of turf life.   Horses that should have won, and as every   one thought could have won wouldn't win,   and " duffers " on whose chance no one with   a head on his shoulders would have laid straws turned up trumps in the most ex- traordmary fashion for the especial benefit of   the bookmakers. The weather, on the first   day was all that could be desired, and the   attendance very good. The Stand was...
