TABLE TALK. (From "Once a Week.") [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 2 December 1868

TABLE TALK.       (From " Once a Week.")   HARD hits in conversation, are, in these days of slang substitutes for wit, such rare tit-bits, that one would almost consent to be the assailed party to elicit them. Here is one by a lady of rank in   French society, which was fired off point blank at an individual, whom we   shall count happy or unhappy accord- ing as we regard him in the light   either of a victim, or of a benefactor who Causes a sprout of wit to grow where none was before. The patient was a doctor, who at the end of a philosophical profession of unfaith, pro- claimed his disbelief in a future exist- ence, and was thus answered : " I am not surprised, Doctor, at your material- ism, and that you should think your patients too effectually killed ever to   come to life again." HERE is a touching love story, with   a situation in it for which I can vouch never...

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. CATERPILLARING.     To the Editor of the Wagga Wagga Advertiser. SIR,—" Whatever is, is right." So said Bolingbroke, and so wrote Pope. But Pope was not a squatter, neither was his Mephis- topheles. Had they have been Crown lessees on the banks of any one of our great Austra- lian rivers, this paradox would never have been written. The realities of every day life are evidence against their philosophy, and caterpillaring, in particular, proves unmis- takeably that " whatever is, is not right." Am I affirming too much when I say that caterpillaring, in the full sense of the term, is the most egregious swindle over perpetrated in the colony? But then again, you not   being a squatter may sir, " We...

THE MECHANICS' INSTITUTE. To the Editor of the Wagga Wagga Advertiser. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 2 December 1868

THE MECHANICS' INSTITUTE. To the Editor of the Wagga Wagga Advertiser. SIR,—Seeing you are so ably wielding your pen, trying to persuade our apathetic fellow townsmen to form themselves into a munici- pality, and also, in your last issue, putting in a good word for our dormant Mechanics' Institute, I hope you will allow me space for a few remarks about the latter Institution. I am not long a resident of Wagga, but during my short stay, have often felt the time hang very heavily on my hands ; not being one of those who wish to pass through this world by spending their spare time in billiard-rooms or at the bar of public-houses, I have natur- ally looked for some rational way of enjoying myself, and have been unable to find any. On enquiring about the facilities of the Mechanics' Institute, I found no one could tell me anything about it, except that it was " a big building, down the street, and I could go there if I liked." Now, I know of many young men, myself amongst the number, who...

TO FREDERICK CHISHOLM, ESQ. (Per Favor of the Wagga Wagga Advertiser.) [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 2 December 1868

TO FREDERICK CHISHOLM, ESQ. (Per Favor of the Wagga Wagga Advertiser.) DEAB Sir,—Your letters published in the local newspapers of Wednesday last, appear to invite, and to require a reply from me, and you shall have it. First, I must take exception to your mention of me as " Police Magistrate." You are well aware that I did not as " Police Magistrate " become a member of the Pastoral Association, nor did I enter my stock for exhibition, as the " Police Magistrate's yearling, Pipeclay," but I did so, as Henry Baylis, a private individual, and therefore I ask you was it in good taste to refer to me in my official capacity; or is it possible that you wish the public to infer that it was my position as Police Magistrate which weighed with the Judges and the Committee, and in- fluenced them in deciding in my favour ? I have not the honour of being acquainted with your brother, Mr. J. W. Chisholm, but I have for years past heard his name mentioned, and in every instance honourably as that...

GENERAL NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 2 December 1868

GENERAL NEWS. THE Melbourne correspondent of a country journal writes that " the last wishes of the unhappy girl Madlle. St. Denis have, I find, been literally attended to, and promptly. A very handsome headstone, with the epitaph she indicated, even to the Shakspearian quo- tation, ' One who loved not wisely, but too well.'—' Othello,' act v., last scene, has been erected. The ground is also fenced in, and a little garden made ; a neat little cross has been formed in white quartz chippings, and in the head of it appears the word ' Marie.' " THE Chamber of Commerce has initiated a scheme of a uniform Tariff and Customs Union for the Australian colonies. The Chamber proposes to make all custom-houses   in Australia branches of one establishment.   The duties collected are to be divided amongst the colonies in proportion to their population as in the German Zollverein. The other chambers are to be invited to consider the subject.—Empire.   A SAD ...

HOME NEWS. (From the English Papers.) [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 2 December 1868

HOME NEWS. (From the Englinh Papers.)   THE DUKE OF EDINBURGH'S CRUISE.   His Royal Highness the Duke of Edinburgh, has joined his ship, the Galatea, and will start from Plymouth on his two years' cruise, on Oct. 20. The duke will sail first for Madeira, and, after touching there, will proceed to Fayal and the Ascension Islands, and will pay another visit to the Cape of Good Hope, where the colonists purpose   giving him a very hearty reception. The     duke will next sail up the Indian ocean to Mauritius, and will land at Port Louis. The next place of interest to be visited is Bombay. After a short stay his royal highness will proceed to Ceylon, touching at Trincomalee, and thence calling at Madras, and making a short stay here, will go on to Calcutta, on a visit to the Governor-general. The prince may probably make a somewhat extended stay, and it is not improbable that he may make himself acquainted with various par...

STOCK, STATION, AND WOOL REPORTS. SYDNEY. MESSRS. MORT AND CO'S.. REPORT.— [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 2 December 1868

STOCK, STATION, AND WOOL REPORTS. SYDNEY. MESSRS. MORT AND CO'S., REPORT . WOOL.—The auction sales this week at- tracted about the usual attendance of buyers, and for all parcels of ordinary good wools, full market prices were obtainable. We would again urge upon our friends the expediency of submitting to the present range of Sydney prices, or else instruct us to forward their wool to London without delay, as we cannot see any prospect of the market improving here until we have more favour- able advices of the English wool market. At our sale, on Thursday, we withdrew several parcels pending the arrival of the mail, and sold only a small portion of our   catalogue as detailed at foot.   PRICES CURRENT.—Fleece superior, none offering ; average and fair, 12d to 15d ; ordinary and ill-conditioned, 8d to 11d ;   scoured, good, 15d to 22d, ditto, inferior and fair, 10d to 14d ; grease, according to quality, 4d to 8d.   SHEEPSKINS.—In g...

MELBOURNE. THE LONDON AND AUSTRALIAN AGENCY CORPORATION (LIMITED) REPORT: [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 2 December 1868

MELBOURNE. THE LONDON AND AUSTRALIAN AGENCY CORPORATION (LIMITED) REPORT : WOOL.—Our public wool sale was held this afternoon, and we are glad to be able to report that the business of this market has assumed a more favourable aspect than it has worn for some time. The competition for good wools, was more brisk than usual, while for low conditioned wools, we noticed that they found more favour, and if they did not advance in price, they certainly elicited more bidding. We had 9½d per lb offered for one large lot of greasy, and hope to close a sale at that figure. We sold one lot of Western wool, at 19¼d per lb. The result of our sale, more than ever confirms our views, that the decline on well-bred wools is proportionally, much less than on low class. We offered a total of 2113 bales, and have sold over 1000 bales.   TALLOW.—We only offered 43 casks, the whole of which readily found buyers at an advance of fully £1 per ton. November 26.   DALMAHOY CAMPBELL ...

BALLARAT LIVE STOCK MARKET. MESSRS NORMAN R. MACLEOD AND CO., REPORT:— [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 2 December 1868

BALLARAT LIVE STOCK MARKET.   MESSRS NORMAN R. MACLEOD AND CO., REPORT : FAT CATTLE.—470 head were yarded, all of which were good quality. There was fair   attendance of buyers, and an excellent de- mand, and the tone of the market all through was animated—particularly so towards the close. Prices were about 10s a head better than the previous week's. Quotations—Best pens bullocks, 8/ to 10/ 5s ; second, 6/ 10s to 7/ 10s ; inferior, 5/ to 6/. Averages—Thomson's bullocks, 9/ 8s ; cows, 7/ 5s 6d ; M'Nicol's bullocks, 8/ 0s 10d ; cows, 6/ 7s 7d : A. Black's bullocks, 7/ 18s 6d ; cows, 6/ 13s 1d ; Scott's bul- locks, 7/ 1s 7d ; cows, 6/ 2s 6d. FAT SHEEP. — A glutted market, 14,194 having come to hand. The quality gener- ally was of a medium class, with a propor- tion of good, but none particularly prime. There was a moderate attendance of the trade, and numerous buyers for boiling down, who commenced operations with the evident determination not to give previou...

PRIZE OF ONE HUNDRED GUINEAS FOR T1IE BEST ESSAY ON THE LAND QUESTION. IT is granted on all sides that the Land Law requires amendment : the Squatter declares it ; the Free-selector admits it ; and the author of the present Land Act at last confesses it. The nature of the amendment required must be the great question of the next Session, or rather, of the next Parliament. On this point, public opinion is still, as it always has been, in a state of chaos. Opinions, in short, or " notions " which pass for opinions, are as various as there are interests to be affected, or political purposes to be served. Before a question of such vital importance to the country is again submitted to the verdict of the people, it seems desirable that some attempt should be made to sift these various and often conflicting opinions —to separate the true from the false, the politically sound from the politically plau- sible, and if possible to evolve from the mass of contradictions that happy golden mean o...

Wagga Wagga Adverstiser "This is true liberty, when freeborn men, Having to advise the public, may speak free." MILTON. SATURDAY, DECEMBER 2, 1868. THE TEN MILE RACE. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 2 December 1868

" Tlus is true liberty, when freefaorn men, Having to advise the public, may apeak free." MILTON. SATURDAY, DECEMBER 2, 1868. THE TEN MILE RACE. WE suppose that most people have heard enough of this now-celebrated event. Like Mr. CHISHOLM'S bull, it has been talked about usque ad nauseam, discussed in every possible point of view, and so far as our own community is concerned, definitely decided upon. We have made up our minds on the matter, and to speak the honest truth, are not particularly anxious as to what the opinions of outsiders may or may not happen to be. Opinions are of various origin, and to come back to our simile of the bull, as all the blowing in the world could not blow the teeth out of that interesting animal's month, so neither can all the misstatements or foolish twaddle in second or third-rate papers alter the fact that the great race was a great success, and no more an exhibition of cruelty than the writing of a silly leading article can be called an exhibition o...

The Cathedral was: consecrated yes- terday.   The ceremony was a most imposing affair.

The Rev. Thomas Smith is danger- ously ill. Thirty-seven entries have been made for the next Sydney Cup. The nominations for West Sydney are fixed for the 14th instant. Twenty-seven new magistrates have been gazetted ; none for the Wagga Wagga district.

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 2 December 1868

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. WHO STOLE THE BOOTS?—Snappers-up of unconsidered trifles are rather numerous in Wagga. Scarcely a week passes that some nimble-fingered gentleman does not relieve some one of a portion of his worldly wealth, either in money or in kind. Now it is a roll of notes, filched from the pocket of some slumbering devotee of Bacchus ; now a saddle or a bridle, a fig of tobacco, a match-box, or a case of jewellery. On Saturday morning a case of this kind occurred at Callaghan's Pastoral Hotel. A young man named Graham from Lake Albert hung his horse up at the hotel, with a new pair of boots strapped to the saddle, on returning in five or ten minutes, the horse was there but the bants were gone. The police were soon on the alert, but the boots must have been lineal descendants of the famous " seven league boots," for as yet they have contrived to baffle all pursuit. THE HARVEST.—Reaping has fairly com- nienced in the district, but we fear the results are not likely to be ver...

THE GREGADOO VINEYARD. (MESSRS. NIXON'S) [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 2 December 1868

THE GREGADOO VINEYARD. (MESSRS. NIXON'S) This Vineyard, which we have lately visited, is situated about ten miles from town on the Kyamba road. It is one of the oldest homesteads in the district and both from situation and soil is admirably adapted for wine-growing purposes. Every one has heard of the Gregadoo wine. It is largely consumed in Wagga Wagga and the adjoining district during the summer months, the greatest difficulty of the makers being to make enough of it. The main vineyard is situated on a rather steep slope with a south eastern aspect, and is thus sheltered from the hot winds which sometimes inflict so much injury. The vines, some of which are over ten years old, are in splendid order, loaded with fruit, and bar accident, giving promise of the largest vintage that Gregadoo has ever known. Hitherto, the Messrs. Nixon have contented, themselves with mixing their grapes—with the exception of the Shiraz grape   —and making only two classes of wines, the red ...

NARANDERA. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] I HOPE you and your townsfolk have by this time recovered from the effects of your late gaieties ; it not, I fear, if the weather with you is at all approaching the heat we " down- river " people are endeavouring to exist under, that desirable state of convalescence will not be hastened. I expect, judging from your last issue, you will not be able to find room for numerous country correspondence, as your columns devoted to that particular branch will be filled, anent the Pastoral Show—the " Bull " case especially, which, though it gives plenty of matter, and is read by almost everyone, I am convinced you, with all well wishers of that flourishing and beneficial association, must deeply regret. I do not refer to the correspondence, but to the events giving rise to it. The past two days have undoubtedly been the hottest of the season, and the only fact that makes the intense heat at all endurable is that it cannot last long without a change, an...
