THE BILLYBONG DAMS AND DAMBREAKERS. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express and Murrumbidgee District Advertiser — 12 February 1859

THE BILLYBONG DAMS AND DAM BREAKERS. We have had the pleasure of receiving back amongst us our respectable neighbours,1Messrs. Ashcroft and MacGregor. Many of your readers may be aware that they were appre hended in November last, on a warrant issued at Deniliquin, and committed for trial at Goulburn on~a criminal charge. They have returned from a successful campaign without a stain upon their character. The particulars of this important case are not so well or so generally known as they ought to be. For the-last three years, the squatters on the lower Billyboug have had no water allowed to them. Their neighbours above, .by building 'formidable dams and cutting the banks of the creek to force water upon their back country, have endeavouredto exhaust a supply which, when the course was clear, amply sufficed for all .parties. During these thiee years, the creek for a long distance below the dams has completely dried up, and several valuable stations have min consequence been abandoned...

EMIGRATION AND IMMIGRATION [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express and Murrumbidgee District Advertiser — 12 February 1859

SEMI~tGATION AND IMMIGRATION. TeI question of Emigration has its moral as well as its economical aspect. STo the colonist, the supply of labour is indeed the prime consideration; and he 'cares not when it comes, or how the country which. furnishes it is affected by his constant drafta upon its able bodied industry, so that his neces sities are fllly and fitly supplemented. The stout heart and the strong arm are welcome to him, whatever be the . clime or creed of their possesor. The moaterial ditfficulties of his condition, obtrude themselves most forcibly upon his notice, and the animal "thews and ,sinews," to combat and conquer them, is all he looks fr, from those countries where they are not only superabun dant, but are actually threatened with entira supersession, by the multiplied and perfect adaptations of wonder working machinery. W'e have passed however, this first stage of colonial progress, and hlave for some time been -m.nthly endeavouring to correct the ·soiol evils which...

COMMEMORATIVE FEASTS [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express and Murrumbidgee District Advertiser — 12 February 1859

COMIMEMORtAT1VE T2ASTS Tin centenary of the Scottish Poet. Burns, has been celebrated throughout Australia with feeling and festivities appropriate to the occasion. Such a fact angurs well fi,r the future of the colony. It has often been sneeringly .remarked that in a· young country, the p.rsuit of wealth so absorbl? the mental faculties of the people, as to exclude all the nobler aspirations of the soul, and render them insensible to the worth of genius and the claims of in tellect. By the honoirs we have just paid to the memory and merits of one of the most gifted sons of men, we give the lie direct to this silly charge of shallow and supercilious observers. SIt is no doubt true that in all circum stances where the attainment of com petence is as easy as it is assured to plodding industry and patient perse Sverance, we shall find every individual eager andardent for its realisation, and the most prominent characteristic of the social state, will be a restless spirit of commercial ...

COMMERCIAL. WAGGA WAGGA STOCK MARKET. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express and Murrumbidgee District Advertiser — 12 February 1859

COMMERCIAL. ---:*:-- WAGG.A WAGOA STOCK MARKET. P. A. Tompson. Auctioneer and Commission Agent, reports as follows :-There is a steady and increasing demand for good storecattle aud sheep, and something over average rates can be had fr well-grown lots of mixed sexes. The .general complaint amongst buyers is, thatmholders of stock attempt to push off too larg?o a proportion of young stock amongst their drafts. The fact is that the enormous demand from Victoria, coupled with the tempting prices offered in that mar hot occasionally, induce breeders to push in anything that is fat, without regard to age; and, in consequence, veyr many herds are reduced to yotng cattle only. Many settlers on the border are turniug their attention to fattening cattle and sheep for market, and giving up breeding altogether. This will doubtless become a separate branch of Squatting, and will tend to raiso thes price of store stock, and materially act as a check upon the tremendous fluctuationsin prices of f...
