LAND. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser — 29 May 1875

QAX.D. The following letter upon tho Amended Land Bill from Mr. Josoph Leary who lately contested this 'electorate, with Mr. ITorster, appears iu tlie Town and Country :—"Tub Legislature, by passing the second reading of the Laud Act, .have affirmed that, for the future, no parent can select land for his uhild, and that the maximum area to which ho him self will be entitled shall be only six hundred and forty acres (the grazing right being only a possiblo advantage, as it may at any timo be conditionally selected). Heretofore a person could conditionally select three hun dred and twenty acres in his own natno and for each of his childreu a like quantity, by which mcaus he could obtain, if he desired, a freehold of considerable area, but'now the Legislature, because of tho absurdity of tho present mode of compelling iufant selectors to resido on the selections, take away altogether this right of tho parent selecting I for his child, and, strange to say. substitute no advantage in its...

Positivk Virtues.—The most of the so called great remedies possess only that sort of negative or passive virtue, which,'while it may not often euro disease, will seldom endanger life. Buistol's Sarsaparilla is equally safe, but it is possessed of that posi* tivc or aggressive virtue which will not tolerate the presence of disease or impure blood or humours in tire liuman systems where it is used, and thus it is that it always cftects complete and lastiup cures.—Advt. Hollow ay's Pills. — Swimming of the head, nausea, distaste for food, and a feeling of lassitude and exhaustion, arc infallible indications of a torpid stomach and general sluggishness of the secretive organs and the circulation. But it is not therefore necessary to scud for a doctor. A course of Holloway'a great cathartic, alterative, and tonic remedy will remove every unpleasant symptom, and imbue both the boily and the mind with unwonted energy. Every animal fluid will be purified, every obstruction in the evacua tor...

CONJUGAL BICKERINGS. (M. OR N.) [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser — 2 June 1875

CONJUGAL BICKERINGS. (M. oit N.) The history of every household, if truly written, will show its periods of domestic strife. We do not'know of the oivi! wars that our marriod friends wage, because the press is rigorously excluded. The buttles nre fought in privato. The killed and wounded affections aro secretly buried, and sighs uttered in one's hearing, and tears dropped out of every one's sight nre the only memorials of the contost. Blood may flow, but it is from the heart inwardly. Fierce blowB may be given aud thrusts interchanged iu the presence of friends, who knowing' nothing of the passions at work be neath the calm surface, never, for a moment, suspect that the couple that they see living together in such ap parent harmony aro not oven on speak ing terms. The bitterer the quarrel is the more closely do they keop it to thomselvea, and before company each vies with the other in keoping np an exaggerated appearance of politeness. Although not oil speaking terms, it is impossib...

INOCULATION FOR PLEURO PNEUMONIA.. Memo, from the Chief Inspectou of Stock to tub Mi.nistek for Lands. I have tlie honour to submit for your consideration t!io accompanying' tabulated statement, showing the opinions of owners of cattle in the different districts of the colony, who have replied to the questions addressed to them by circular at the end of last yca,r as to the efficacy of inoculation for pleuro-pneumonia. From this state ment it willbe seen that in the opinion of our stockowners tho previous ex perionco of tho beneBcial effects is moro than confirmed, as this statement shows that of those who have prac tised inoculation there are eighteen in favour of that treatment to one against it, and that of even thoso who have never tried inoculation thero are nearly !• to 1 against it. By these returns it also appears that of thoso owners who have inoculated, 216 havo done so once, 30 twice, 13 three times, 4 four tiiness 13 several times, and 1G often ; while 51 owners state th...

SYDNEY" JOURNALS. A travelling correspondent contri butes tlie following severe len-iarks on the above subject to tbo Melbourue Leader :—" It may bo prejudice, but I do not think the Sydney press is com parable witbthat of Molbourno. The Sydney Herald, the only morning jour nal, is an excellent commercial medium, and it can boast of a huge display of advertisements. Tlio loading articles aro writton with considerable ability, but they are as heavy as lead. A poru Bnl of the Herald fails to convey the sliglitost idea of what is taking place in the city or the colony. The tele grams aro full, the reports, especially of religious meetings, aro accurate, but there is an utter absence of anything approaching to smartness. Amuse ments aro utterly tabooed ; there is no small talk, and tho country news is, as a rule, very imporfectly given. Great prominenco is given to English ex tracts, but what lakes place in New South Wales is comparatively ignored. But thesauiethingis uuiversal through ...

A STRANGE CAREER. (The Leader). [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser — 2 June 1875

A STRANGE CAREER, ( The Leader). ! Truth is often declared to bo Btranger than fiction, and tbe history of the woman Pryor, lately deceased, who, dying at Carlton, declared that she had been poisonod by her husband, affords materials that, worked up by the sensational fiction-writers, would inake an interesting three-volume novel. Hor story is graphically told by the OvenB and Murray Advertiser. She came to Australia from the North of Ireland, entered domestic service at Albury, left it to marry one Herbert, a released prisoner, and then with him opened a grog shanty, which was the resort of all the°cattlo stealers in the district. Both husband and wife had periodical fits of drunkenness, and ono day the former was discovered lying in the fireplace of the shanty literally roasted to doalh, and a coroner's jury subsequently committed tbe woman for trial for wilful murder. Upon her trial, no direct evidence being forth coming of how the man catno by his doath, she was acquitted. The w...

THE POWERFUL OWL. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser — 2 June 1875

THE POWERFUL OWL. Mr. James Dawson, of Campcrdown, writes the following letter to tlio Australasian : — Lately ray herd boy brought to mo a very fine specimen of the poworful owl, which ho said at tacked him unprovoked, making re peated swoops or blows with ils wings at his head, similar to the lapwing ■when anyone approaches its uest. He throw a stick at it and killed it. Never having heard of an owl showing fight, I discredited the story, but on skinning the bird was qnito astonished to find that some obstruction on tlio joint of tho wing corresponding with the wrist of the human arui prevented tho skin turning over, and on examina tion I discovered a pointed bono about half an inch long, slightly curved, projecting forwards, but although not through tho skin, forming a for midable weapon of attack. Tho boy's story, which I had almost forgotten, then occurred to me, and on again questioning him he said, 'My word, it whisked past the side of my bead in a way idid not like.' Hnving ...

WOOL MARKETS. (Leader.) [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser — 2 June 1875

WOOL MARKETS. ( Leader.) With reference to the' advantages that wonid accrue to the Australian wool producer by sending bis produce direct to Antwerp, Messrs. Recard Bros, and Co., of that city and Mel bourne, forward us a letter received from tbe Antwerp Chamber of Com. merce. In a circular accompanying the official letter Messrs. Ronard point out that the centralisation of.wool in London is becoming opposed to the interests of woolgrowers, becnuso tho trade is getting unable to cope with the uuwieldly masses, and the compoti tion is nccossarily restricted, wbilo middle-men and speculators step in between tho producor and manufac turer, absorbing part of tlio profits. The advantages of direct shipment to Antwerp from Melbourne aro thus summarised : — "1. Central position and present importance, socond to London ouly as a wool market. 2. Cbeap communication by rail with all the manufacturing districts on the Coutinont, espocmlly those of the north of Prance, fho Rhenish Provinces of...

FARMERS' SHEEP. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser — 2 June 1875

FARMERS' SHEEP. What is the best sheep for farmers or small landowners to keep, is a question that ninny are asking just now. An American paper, the Wes tern Rural, has a chapter of well con sidered advice which we commend to the attention of farmers :—" If you have a small and high-priced farm under'high cultivation, grain-growing and the best grass-growing land, and wish to keep a few sheep, and expect each to consume as much as a two year old steer, get the Cotswold, and go to raising mutton; and if the Btaple continues at present prices, per haps you can make it pay. On the contrary, if you should have the mis fortune to have a farm of any consider able extent, and wish to have the largest returns from the smallest out lays in grain, skilled labour in care, herd large numbers, and have them thrive, have as much manure in pro portion to consumption of feed, which, if properly applied, will yield as much mutton as wool, fro to (jrowinu wool nnd mutton, and tbat from the im proved ...
