SPAIN. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 28 November 1868
SPAIN. The insurrections are successful. The Queen went to Sebastian to meet Napoleon. On the 17th September the Cadiz garrison &nbsp; revolted, and were joined by the fleet under Admiral Topete. His movements were sup- ported by the garrisons of Senile, Malaga, Carthagena, Barcelona, and the whole coast of Cadiz to Terrol ; he was joined by the exiled generals from the Canaries. Gonzales Bravo, the Prime Minister, has resigned. General Novalisches, sent to Andalusia to establish order at Santander, was defeated by Senoratua and killed. Madrid immediately &nbsp; joined the revolutionary troops and frater- nized with the people ; the Queen's bust was torn down and dragged in the dirt. All opposition has ceased. The Queen first wished to return to Madrid with her favorite, but crossed the frontiers from San Sebastian on the 29th September. She was received by General Castelnan, and conducted to &nbsp; Pau.

GENERAL NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 28 November 1868
GENERAL NEWS MR. JOHN CHRISTIE, J.P., of Narramine, one of the wealthiest squatters on the river, was found drowned in the Macquarie, about one hundred yards from his house, he was missed at 7 o'clock last evening, and a search was at once instituted, but no trace could be found till this morning, when his dead body was discovered floating in the water. Mr. Christie, who was much respected, is generally regretted. The coroner has gone to hold an inquest.—Herald Telegram. THE SEASON'S CLIP.—Shearing is being rapidly finished in this district, and by the end of the ensuing week, there will be little more doing at the sheds. The clip as a whole is decidedly inferior to that of many seasons past, both in quality and condition. All the &nbsp; &nbsp; pains that could be taken, and all that latest appliances could effect have been tried to get the wool well up, but it is sadly deficient in lustre, and the dusty character of the country has made it impossible to keep the she...

To cure it he tried innumerable medicines, but without effect. He was in the Royal Infirmary about three years ago ; there they told him that amputa- tion was the only chance of saving his life. At last a friend very earnestly recommended him to try Holloway's Ointment and Pills, and they have been the sole means of healing the wound, and rendering his leg perfectly sound. Printed directions for their use ac- company the medicines.
STOCK REPORT. ADVERTISER Office, Friday Evening. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 28 November 1868
STOCK REPORT. ADVERTISER Office, Friday Evening. Between the fall in the value of wool in the home markets, as telegrammed, of 2d per lb. on fine, 3d per lb. on medium, and 4d per lb. on inferior sorts, and the continued dryness &nbsp; in the weather here, the prospects of the squatters are anything but cheering. Should &nbsp; the tendency of the wool markets in England continue to a farther decline, and no change for the better take place in the weather here, it will prove a very serious matter for all connected with pastoral interests. We fear the reign of sheep must note succumb to the &nbsp; rule of cattle. So be it. Sheep may— must—again, at no distant date, assert their ascendancy as profit yielding properly. At Dubbo the season is beginning to assume a very critical aspect. The continued dryness of the, weather, the falling off of the feed, &nbsp; and the rapid exhaustion of the water supply are causing stockowners to feel wry nervous about the...

Magga Magga Advertiser "This is true liberty, when freeborn men, Having to advise the public, may speak free." MILTON. SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 28, 1868. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 28 November 1868
" This is true liberty, when freeborn man, Having to advise the public, may speak free." MILTON. SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 28, 1868. THE time lias arrived when it is desi- rable that Wagga Wagga should put &nbsp; off childish things, and begin to think, &nbsp; speak, and act for herself. In the life of cities, as in that of individuals, there &nbsp; is a period at which dependence ?atu- rally ceases, and bold independent effort becomes not only a virtue but a necessity. We are sure it mast be agreed that such a period has been reached by the youthful and precocious town in whose progress we are all so much interested. A few years—some six or seven, we believe, at the most— have elevated Wagga Wagga from the category of " townships " into the front rank of country towns. She has had a brief history, but a stirring one ; and, favoured considerably by fortune, has certainly made a fair use of her oppor- tunities. It only remains now to complete her title to the dignity...
LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 28 November 1868
LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. BONDED STORE.—A large quantity of goods has been received at the Bonded Store during the week. We sincerely hope this will not bring about a rupture with our friends over the Border, who, we observe, are gravely complaining that in opening a Bonded Store at Wagga Wagga the New South Wales Government have broken faith with Victoria. Perhaps the Government will have the good- ness to apologise, and by way of compensa- tion remit the large amount of Border duties now overdue from the sister colony. FLOUR REPORT, AND THE CROPS.—At the local mills, a reduction of 20s. per ton has been made in the price of flour, which is now quoted at £14 for fine, and £12 10s. for seconds. In our own district, the wheat crop is almost a total failure, and very few &nbsp; of the farmers have any hope of harvesting more than enough for seed. In a few instances, —and we regret to say they are very few— where the ground has been manured, and deeply ploughed, and the seed sown ear...
POLICE COURT. FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 27. (Before F. A Tompson and G. Mair, Esqs., J.P.) [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 28 November 1868
POLICE COURT. FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 27. (Before F. A Tompson and G. Mair, Esqs., J.P.) GEORGE SMITH appeared on summons for assaulting and beating Ah Hong. Mr. Willans appeared for the complainant. De- fendant, in person, pleaded not guilty. The evidence proved that the complainant had been struck whilst in a crowd opposite the store of Messrs. Forsyth and Co., upon the evening of Saturday last. It proved, how ever, to be a case of mistaken identity, and the case was in consequence dismissed. Peter Wattes Harris appeared on remand to answer the complaint of the police for allowing a cow to stray in the town of Wagga Wagga. Defendant pleaded not guilty and on his application the case was postponed for evidence in defence. SHEEP-STEALING.—Charles Church was brought up on remand from the Yass Bench, for stealing 1016 sheep, the property of Messrs. Rasch and Coffin. Miles Murphy deposed : I know the prisoner before the Court ; on the 11th of February, saw prisoner at Binalong, and had some d...
SYDNEY GOSSIP. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] November 25th. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 28 November 1868
SYDNEY GOSSIP. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] November 25th. FORSTER'S unopposed return for the Hastings has completed the series of Ministerial re-elec- tions, and the members of the new Cabinet, with two exceptions, are all back in Sydney, preparing for the opening of the Parlia- mentary campaign, on the 8th proximo. The two exceptions referred to are Egan and Forstor, the former having been baffled in his intended steam trip to Twofold Bay by adverse wind and water, took the overland route for it, and expressed his gratitude to his constituents for returning him. He is expected back here to-morrow, to resume the duties of his post. Some amusing rumours prevail in reference to the scene on board the You Yangs during the storm. It is said that the worthy Postmaster and the Chairman of Committees having fully made up their minds that their destination was not Eden, but &nbsp; quite a different place, fortified their sinking spirits with so " many recht guid wylie wachts for a...
HAY. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 28 November 1868
HAY. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] NUMBERS of teams loaded heavily with wool are still wending into town from the Back Block stations. The teamsters look begrimed with dust and dirt ; indicating the character of the country through which they have slowly, but assiduously, pushed their way. Not a few instances occurred last year in which the wool from these distant back sta- tions, through lack of quality, and want of cleanliness, which destroys the fibre, did not realise in Melbourne, under the hammer, enough to pay expenses of transit. It is not at all improbable that we shall learn the same piece of news with respect to the pre- sent season's clips, now travelling to market at Melbourne. This is discouraging. Beautiful specimens of scoured wool have recently been pretty generally shown in town, and pronounced by competent judges as being admirably got up. The samples were from the wool-washing establishment of Mr. Charles Catton, near Hay ; which has this season been started and b...

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. All communications io this journal must he authen- ticated by the name and address of the writer. No notice will betaken of anonymous communications, and no rejected communications will be returned. THE PASTORAL SHOW. To the Ediioffif the Wagga Wagga Advertiser, SIR,—In reply to a letter of " A Member," appearing in your columns of 25th instant, relative to the Exhibition of Stock at the late Pastoral Show, I will thank you to insert the following remarks :- Your correspondent in the second para- graph of his letter (I pass over the first, it being already answered by the owner of the animal under protest) would seem to imply that I was inclined to dictate to the Judges, for he says " The Judges themselves drew the attention of the Hon. Secretary to the fact that the bull in question was beyond the age in which he was classed. The Hon. Secretary referred them to the rules he had placed in their hands, and required them to give their award as to a yearling," ...
THE PASTORAL SHOW. To the Editor of the Wagga Wagga Advertiser [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 28 November 1868
THE PASTORAL SHOW. To the Editor of the Wagga Wagga Advertiser &nbsp; Sir,—A letter appeared in your last issue &nbsp; signed, " A Member " animadverting on the manner in which the last Exhibition of Stock was conducted. As I am personally interested in a portion of his remarks, perhaps you will allow me to refute some of his statements. In the sixth paragraph of his letter he has misstated facts, which can easily be contradicted. I was requested by Mr. Elliot to act as his assistant, take all entries of Stock for Exhibition, and enter each exhibit separately in the Judges' Book ; and this I did carefully, not one error or omission occurring, At the Committee meeting mentioned in " Member's " letter, held on Saturday last, a draught &nbsp; mare and a pair of draught horses (not buggy horses) entered for Exhibition were brought under the notice of the Committee, and a complaint lodged, that no entries had been made of either. The Judges' and entry books were p...
THE WAR IN NEW ZEALAND. DEATH OF MAJOR HUNTER AND SIX OTHERS. THE ATTACK ON OKUTUKU. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 28 November 1868
THE WAR IN NEW ZEALAND. DEATH OF MAJOR HUNTER AND SIX OTHERS. THE ATTACK ON OKUTUKU. THE following is from the Wanganui Times of the 7th November :- Captain Noake has ridden across from Wairoa with the intelligence that Okutuku was attacked at halt-past 8 this morning, by Colonel Whitmore, with a force of 300 Europeans and 80 natives—the majority of the natives not turning out when required. The encampment was found to be occupied by a strong and well-posted force. An ad- mirable movement was made by Colonel Whitmore. While his advance-guard was attacking the enemy's encampment, his re- serve threw up an earthwork, for the advance to retire behind in case it should be re- quired, and it eventually proved of essential service. After a fierce contest, finding his casualties very heavy, and there being no prospect of his gaining any advantage by continuing the attack, Colonel Whitmore retired, carrying away all the wounded that could be seen. The European forces engaged, including the ...
