A WEDDING INDEED. (To the Editor of the Pall Mall Gazette.) [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 17 October 1868

A WEDDING INDEED. (To the Editor of the Pall Malt Gazette.) Sir,—" Wednesday, July 22, was a notable day in that part of London which is situated upon the sea, and which was known to the ancients as Brighthelmstone. On that day the first wedding ever celebrated at St. Paul's, West-street, took place. The cere- mony (or, according to the " Horæ Paulinæ," the sacrament) was fixed, it was said, for half-past ten a.m. ; but before half-past nine the church of St. Paul's was, if fishermen speak the truth, filled, and West-street blockaded. Of course, on such an occasion " priests " were abundant ; three, at least, are believed to have had a hand in making two into one. The service was as in tricate as the most orthodox or hetero- dox could desire, and the place of performance thereof was shifted in the most unexceptionable manner from point to point, until the heathen must have been at their wit's end. The priests shifted their garments so as to satisfy the most exorbitant ; from cope to...

[PROSPECTUS.] THE         WAGGA WAGGA ADVERTISER TO-DAY is published the first number of   a new local journal.   This Journal will be published bi-weekly, the reasons which appear to the Proprietors to justify, if not to demand, such     an experiment on their part, may be thus   briefly stated :- 1. The rapidly increasing prosperity and   importance of the district, require       adequate representation by means of         the Press. 2. The Special interests, pastoral, agricul- tural and otherwise, of the district, require the special advocacy of an independent organ, commanding the   confidence and identified with the   fortunes of the interests in question.       3.

SELECT POERTY. THE FAIREST THING IN MORTAL EYES. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 21 October 1868

SELECT POERTY.       THE FAIREST THING IN MORTAL EYES.     To make my Lady's obsequies   My love a minster wrought,   And, in the chantry, service there   Was sung by doleful thought ; The tapers were of burning sighs, hat light and odour gave ; And sorrows, painted o'er with tears,         Enlumined her grave ;       And round about, in quaintest guise,     Was carved, " Within this tomb there lies The fairest thing in mortal eyes."   Above her lieth spread a tomb Of gold am sapphires blue ;     The gold doth show her blessedness, The sapphires mark her true ! For blessedness and truth in her   Were livelily portray'd,       When gracious God with both His hands Her goodly su...

SOMETHING LIKE A TIGER STORY. (From the Hunting Grounds of the Old World.) By "The Old Shekarry.") [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 21 October 1868

SOMETHING LIKE A TIGER STORY. (From the Hunting Grounds of the Old World.) By " The Old Shekarry.")   This volume contains some desultory narratives of sporting expeditions in     various parts 0f the world—in India, Southern and Central, in Circassia, and Africa. They are rather loosely thrown together, and not always very well told ; but many of the adventures are so exciting as to make us forget the absence of literary graces in their   narration. Perhaps the best thing in the book is she chase and death of a celebrated man-eating tiger, that had long been the scourge of the district which he haunted, and had carried off nearly a hundred natives, male and female. The destruction of such a monster raises his conqueror from the rank of sportsman into a public bene- factor. The natives are powerless to   cope with them, and tigers that have once acquired an appetite for human flesh never lose it. Their nature becomes, ...

VICTORIA. (From the Melbourne Papers.) [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 21 October 1868

VICTORIA. (From the Melbourne Papers.) By way of Sydney, information has   reached us of the death, at Wellington, of Dr. George Samuel Evans, L.L.D., who was formerly a resident in this colony, twice a member of Govern- ments of which Mr. O'Shanassy was the head, and long a representative in the Legislative Assembly, in which he was distinguished for the classical and oratorical character of his speeches. No particulars of his last illness have reached us, but it was known to his friends that for many years he has suffered from a painful illness of an1 almost incurable character. On Saturday, the Melbourne Hunt Club Steeplechases were run, on the Melbourne Course. The meeting, though, not quite so largely attended as usual, was a successful one, and no serious accident occurred. The only considerable sufferer from this cause   was Mr. Bullen, who was riding Cigar in the Hunt Club Steeplechase. The horse fell at the last hurdle, and rolled partly over him, ...

No notice will be taken of anonymous communications, and no re- jected communications will be returned. VERITAS. -Too personal, call 0n the Editor. To the Editor of the Wagga Wagga Advertiser. DEAR SIR,—I have been a little tickled with the letter of your correspondent, " Argus," that appeared in your last issue. I am not going to pry into your professional secrets, and ask you to tell me who " Argus " is, but judging from the tone of his communication, one would suppose him to be numbered amongst " the oldest inhabitants " of the place. He gives you many warnings, and a good deal of advice, with all this as sumed weight and wisdom, of a man of years and wide-spread experience—and yet I am doubtful of the correctness of this estimate of him, and think it not unlikely that he may be a compara- tively recent importation into the district—perhaps, a pure-bred Yan- kee...

We hear a large cattle property in the New England district has changed hands during the week, the price has not as yet transpired.

MELBOURNE. THE LONDON AND AUSTRALIAN AGENCY CORPORATION (LIMITED) REPORT. MONTHLY REPORT. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 21 October 1868

MELBOURNE.     THE LONDON AND AUSTRALIAN AGENCY CORPORATION (LIMITED) REPORT.   MONTHLY REPORT.       WOOL.—Judging from the appearance of the weather when shearing first commenced, we were in hopes that before this a public sale of wool would have been held ; a change in the weather interrupted sheaving and the unfavourable news from Europe has caused the sales to be postponed until the arrival of the mail of the 29th instant, when it is hoped that the wool market will have assumed a more favourable tone, and thus lead to increased confidence on the part of dealers. The unusually dry spring caused settlers to fear an unfavourable season ; we are, how- ever glad to be able to report these appre-   hensions were dispelled by heavy falls of rain, which not only freshened the herbage of the country, but also afforded a plentiful supply of water on some stations, for the purpose of washing.

BALLARAT LIVE STOCK MARKET [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 21 October 1868

BALLARAT LIVE STOCK MARKET MESSRS. NORMAN R. MACLEOD and Co's report— FAT CATTLE.—Compared with the three previous weeks the supply was small, only 389 head having come to hand. No really good cattle were yarded, the best being little better than second quality. There was a moderate attendance of buyers, and sales at the commencement showed a cer- tain degree of briskness, which, however, was not maintained to the close, the demand being very limited from large purchases made the preceeding week. Prices were, perhaps, a shade better, though not to any appreciable extent, and fair quality. Beef may be quoted at about 20s per hundred pounds. Quotations :- Best pens bullocks, 7/ to 8/ 10s ; second, 5/ to 6/ 10s ; inferior, 3/ to 4/ 10s.
