Mr James l'orsytii reports The sheep which are travelling from necessity, are having a bad lime of it, and tho further'they go on their journey up the river the worse they faro. Many which are for sale are' in such wretchcd condition that no one would give above a ■ merely nominal prico for them. Store wethers for fattening, in fair condition, are still in demand, and I am in treaty for one lot of 10,000, of which I expect to report the purchase in my next. I have also in quiries for store cattle of suitable asrea for fattening, and could place about fifty really good dairy cowa at full, rates. There is a demand for lightly Etocked and unim proved country, and I have one or two stations now under offer, and hope to report the absolute sale of shortly. The present low price of stock is a great in ducement for capitalists to invest in unimproved runs which they can stock with sheep at so small a cost. I believe a better time for making investments in pas...

TRAVELLING SHEEP. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 17 February 1869
TRAVELLING SHEEP. The Wagga Wagga Advertiser says:—"Two cases were decided at, the Police rffioe on Tuesday last, whieh gave rise to some important issues. The plaintiff—Mr D. McEillope—and the defen dant—Mr W. Forlonge—are squatters. In the first case, i. e., not giving the required twenty four hours' notice before passing through a sheep run, it was pleaded that in this instance no notice was necessary, as the sheep had not gone through Mr McKillop's run, but through a ' reserve' thereon. The question then followed—were ' re serves ' made for the especial procection of the lessee or for the use of the general public, i. e. owners of stock travelling; teamsters, &e. This point should be made clear ; for it is likely sooner or lat&lt;*r to bring on disagreeable complications The Bench decided that the ' reserve,' was to all intents and purposes portion of the ran, and pro claimed for the conservation of the water supply of the leaseholder, and therefore fined Mr For ...

TELEGRAPHIC INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 20 February 1869
TELEGRAPHIC INTELLIGENCE. From our latest telegraphic intelligence we gather the following:—• Sydney. In the Legislative Assembly, the debate on the conspiracy reports continued till four o'clock on Thursday morning. Mr Macleay's motion was to the effect that there was no ground for believing that there were any conspirators in connexion with O'Farrell. This was taken by Mr Parkes to imply a vote of censure upon him and his former colleagues, and he moved an amendment to the effect that rumours were in circulation of^ intended violence on the Prince, prior to his arrival, and that O'Farrell was not alone in his crime. The members who supported the motion were desirous of adjourning the de | btttP, but Mr Purkes's friends, finding thoy j had a majority, prevented any further post ponement, even on the reasonable ground of allowing; Mr Macleay to reply to bis motion. On a division, Mr Parke's amendment was carried by a majority of twelve. On the result of the division being announced,...
THE VICTORIAN LOAN AND RAILWAYS. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 20 February 1869
THE VICTORIAN LOAN AND RAILWAYS. (from the home news.) lhough the introduction of the Victorian Loan of £2,000,000 has been postponed, the arrangements for it are completed, and before our next number is published, it will pro bably have been all subscribed. As this loan is chiefly intended for railways, it will not be inappropriate to remark that opinion at home has become very strong in favour of the least expensive modes of construction, the lightest engines, and the most economical systems of working. As far as possible all the new lines which the new Parliament is asked to sanction will be surface lines, with out expensive tunnelling or costly embank ments ; and the engines will be constructed accordingly. Mr R. F. Fairlie has the merit of having persistently directed attention to these matters, and he has produced a system, of all others the best adopted to the exigen cies of the interior districts of new countries like Australia. After what we said on these subjects in our la...

ROBBERY UNDER ARMS. (from the riverine advertiser.) On last Wednesday, at tue ueninquin Police Court, Thomas Kelly was placed in the dock on a charge of highway robbery under arms. Thomas Broughton Came, being examined by Sub-Inspector Oreagbe deposed that he wa3 a magistrate of the colony of New South Wales and a squatter residing at Murray Station. On Monday afternoon last, about three o'clock, a man of the name of M'Donald, in company with Mr Hillson, of the Tocumwal Inn, met him in his home paddock, and M'Donald said that he and his travelling companion, named Henry, had been stuck-up by an armed man about three miles below Tocumwal Inn. He said they were riding towards Tuppal Station, a little distance from the road, when a man called to them (at the same time walking towards them ) M'Donald described him as a short man, wearing a light coat and tweed trousers (the attire of the prisoner answered to this description.) Shortly after receiving this information from M'Donald he sa...
PRINCE ALFRED IN ADELAIDE. [BY ELECTRIC TELEGRAPH.] [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 20 February 1869
PRINCE ALFRED IN ADELAIDE. [BY ELECTRIC TELEGRAPH.! H.R.H. the Duke of Edinburgh, with his Excellency Sir James Ferguson and their respective suites, attended the colonists' ball, in the new town hall, on Thursday night. There was a large number of distinguished persons present, and on the entrance of Hia JRoyal Highness and the new Governor they were received with great enthusiasm. The hall was very tastefully decorated, and the whole affair passed off well. There appears to be no truth in the report which was circulated on the arrival of the Galatea that the Prince had brought authority to confer the honour of knighthood upon four of our leading colonists. The Prince laid the foundation-stone of the new Sailors' Home at Port Adelaide with the usual formalities, in the presence of the local authorities and a large concourse of sailors, all of whom are so much interested in the erection of such a building. A detachment of seamen from H.M.S. Galatea was also present, besides a great ...
THE AUSTRALIAN MEAT QUESTION. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 20 February 1869
THE AUSTRALIAN MEAT QUESTION. On Tuesday, 29feh December, an interest ing meeting was held, under the presidency of the hon 6. F. Verdon, C B., Agent Gene fal for Victoria, at Norton Folgate, for the purpose of introducing to notice the steps which have been taken to give the English public the benefits to be derived from a sup ply of animal food from our Australian colonies. A great many gentlemen connected with the colonies were present, and among others Mr F. S. Dutton, the Agent-General for South Australia, Mr W. E. Mayne, Agent-General for New South Wales, as well as many of the metropolitan medical officers of health. The chairman pointed out that the overcoming of the difficulties in the way of obtaining a constant supply of meat from Australia was important in two ways: in the first place a supply of good meat would be given to this country at a considerably less cost than was now given for meat; and in the second place, the vast supplies of mut ton and beef now melted down ...
ITEMS BY THE ENGLISH MAIL. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 20 February 1869
ITEMS BY THE ENGLISH MAIL. In Aix, no less than six married women were charged with murdering their respective husbands by poison procured from a herbalist, who seems to have carried on bis deadly business in the most careless manner, and yet without attracting the attention of the police. One of the women was sentenced to 20 years' hard labour, and all the others to hard labour for life. A tragical occurrence Las taken place at Eeslon (Marche). M. Lepelletier, the mayor of that place, had died from an attack of apoplexy while returning from the funeral of M. Ilavin. He was still lying unburied, when a dispute on some question of interest arose between his son and his daughter's husband. The former at length lost all con trol over his temper, and on his mother inter vening and reproaching him for his unseemly behaviour, he discharged the contents of a gun into her side, wounding her dangerously. He then went into a field and blew out his own brains. Edward Dodd, page (says the Hom8 ...

As a proof that river water is mixed with milk in Bathurst, a correspondent writes to the Times :—" The milk vendors assure us that their milk is pure from the cow; but this morning I had ocular demonstration that the milk tins must have fallen into the river, inasmuch as I found, swimming in one per son's milk, a live fish.
