Magga Magga Advertiser "This is true liberty, when freeborn men, Having to advise the public, may speak free." MILTON. WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 25, 1868. THE PAST WEEK. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 25 November 1868

WAGGA WAGGA ADVERTISER " This is true liberty, when freeborn men, Having to advise the public, may speak free."     MILTON.     WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 25, 1868. THE PAST WEEK. It is desirable, we think, that there   should be some better record of the past week than the empty bottles of the hotels and the headaches of their imbibers. It was a great week, and it has left behind it a great lesson—that it is not good to attempt too. much at once, that there is, or ought to be a medium even in doing right. We one could take exception to either of the great features of last week's carnival. If there was any fault to be found with the Pastoral Show it was that there was not quite enough of it ; and as for the races, we are sure we express only the general opinion when we say that   they were a credit to all concerned.   But there is a limit to human powers   of consumption even of good thi...

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 25 November 1868

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. THE TOWN.—Wagga is rapidly emptying   itself of the vast crowd of visitors which has   lately made it at once so lively and so uncom- fortable. In a few days all will be reduced to the ordinary hum-dram jog-trot of a country town, and we shall have to exist as best we can without any further excitement than an occasional foot-race or pigeon match. It will be long before Wagga Wagga is again called upon to exert herself to a similar, ex- tent, and in the meantime we think she   might employ her leisure to good purpose in looking after her interests. She sadly wants a Municipal Council. Holes are gaping, foot-     paths crumbling, stumps still causing to   stumble, and is nothing to be done ? We   must really get up an agitation on this mat-   ter, if only to keep ourselves alive during the next six months. HORSE-RAFFLE AT THE ROYAL.—The staunch old veteran, Troi...

TURF TALK. THE settling on the late Race Mooting came off at the " Australian " on Saturday after   noon.

J. Bowler, £601 10s. ; Mr. Bond, £201 ; Mr. Mitchell, £106 15s. ; and some smaller amounts.

THE ROOK COTTAGE VINEYARD (MRS. VINCENT'S). [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 25 November 1868

THE ROOK COTTAGE VINE YARD (MRS. VINCENT'S).   WE have lately paid a visit to this vineyard which is situated about two miles from town, and independently of its wine-producing qualities, is certainly one of the most charming places we have seen in the district. The result of our visit is a complete revolution in our opinion, if not of colonial wines in general, at any rate of the possibility of pro- ducing good colonial wine. Hitherto though we have heard much of the excellence of Australian wines, we have seen very little. The much-vaunted vintages of the Hunter had simply succeeded in impressing us with the idea, that however successful New South Wales might be as a vinegar-producing country, it   was not likely to get very far beyond that point. If any one shares that opinion, a visit to Mrs. Vincent's will soon undeceive him. That lady has expended a great deal of time, trouble, and money in bringing her vineyard to its present state of excellence, and...

CARCOAR. [FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT.] [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 25 November 1868

CARCOAR. [FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT.] THE season, in this district .at present is very promising. We have hurt of late several refreshing showers which have greatly bene- fited the wheat, and we are now in expecta- tion of an abundant harvest. All our   sheepholders are either busy washing and shearing, or have completed that operation. There will be about 400,000 sheep shorn in this district during the present season.   Unusual care has been taken by a number of the sheep owners in having their sheep washed in first-rate style. Neither costs nor exer- tions have been spared in fixing tanks for hot water soaking pens, and erecting California pumps so as to raise water for the purpose of spout-washing the sheep. The wool in general is beautifully white, and the clip is : very good. Our lambing was also good, and as we now expect to have a sufficiency of grass there will be a great many fat sheep for sale in a short time. A number of our sheep owners have been o...

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. All communications to this journal must be authen- ticated by the name and address of the writer. No notice will be taken of anonymous communications, and no rejected communications will be returned.   OUR EXHIBITION OF STOCK. To the Editor of the Wagga Wagga Advertiser. SIR,—In your published report of our Pas- toral Show, mention is made of the bull, " Prince Arthur," an exhibit by Mr. Frederick Cliisholm, which was protested against as being above the age of the class in   which he was exhibited, and that the object- tion was sustained by the Committee before whom the subject was brought. I do not suppose that you or the public   generally are aware that before the protests were made by the owners of the competing animals, the Judges themselves drew the attention of the Honorary Secretary to the Association to the fact that the bull in question was beyond the age in which he was classed. Such, however, is the case. T...

SELECT POETRY. THE STURDY ROCK. (From PERCY'S "Reliques of Ancient Poetry.") [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 28 November 1868

SELECT POETRY.   THE STURDY ROCK.     (From PERCY'S " Reliques of Ancient Poetry.) THE sturdy rock, for all his strength, By raging seas is rent in twaine ; The marble stone is pearst at length With little drops of drizzling rain ; The oxe doth yeelde untoe the yoke ; The Steele obeyth the hammer-stroke ; The stately stagge, that seemes so stoute, By yelping houndes at bay is sette ; The swiftest bird that flies aboute Is caught at length in fowler's nette ; The greatest fish in deepest brooke Is soon deceived by subtill hooke ;   Yea, man himself, untoe whose will All things are bounden to obeye, For all his wit and worthie skill, Doth fade at length and passe away. Nothing there is but Time doth waste ; The heavens, the earth consume at laste. But Vertue sits triumphing still, Upon the throne of glorious Fame ; Though spiteful Death man's bodie kille, Yet hurts he not his vertuous name : By Life or Death, whatso betides, The stat...

EPICURES. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 28 November 1868

EPICURES. To be an epicure, a man should be rich ; a poor epicure (unless he steal) must lead the life of twenty Tantaluses rolled into one. Elwes, the miser, was that unhappy creature ; an epicure restrained from indulging in one vice,   by the preponderance of another. People who laid traps for his rusty guineas used to bring him luxurious dishes, which he spoiled by his mean ness. On one occasion a prudent lady sent the old miser a plate of richly     stewed carp, of which he was known to be fond. It arrived cold. The difficulty was how to warm it. Elwes had no coal ; he was not going to waste a fire ; nothing would induce him to do that. What should he do ? A happy thought struck him. He took the dish, covered it with another, and eat down on it patiently like a hatching hen until it got tolerably warm, and the generous port wine flavour was elicited from the gravy. There was a strong current some   years ago in Paris, of a Gas...
