SELECT POETRY. HAUNTED. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 5 December 1868

SELECT POETRY. HAUNTED.     COME, fill my goblet up with wine, My little page with dusky eyes, And pile those purple grapes on high, Till the red light upon them lies. Bring hither all your daintiest cates, And cordials, perfumed even yet : Wheel up the little stand of books ; ' Tis luxury makes the heart forget ! Come when you hear the silver bell. Now, sparkling offspring of the vine, You have no grief's nor cares to tell, So teach me how to conquer mine !   My golden poet, sing some song To make the hours more quickly fly ? What sayest thou ? '' Man would be blest,— But love and sorrow never die !" Now, what a moon sick plaint is this ! Why, he who e'er could make them last, Through our poor human life, deserves To have his bust in opal cast.   They've died a thousand deaths, with me, And each one took a different way. I drink the latest one of all,— The love I lost " the other day."   The latest, deepest one I knew...

TABLE TALK. (From "Once a Week.") [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 5 December 1868

TABLE TALK. (From " Once a Week.")   How completely we are the creatures of habit. Sailors are proverbial for their powers of climbing, and land lubbers look with awe upon their feats among the rigging of a ship. Yet I saw some sailor boys the other day creeping, in the slowest and most timid   fashion, down a steep sandy slope near some gravel pits, and counting the descent as a perilous enterprise, though the children of the townspeople are ac- customed to sport as freely, and slide as merrily, on the very same spot, as if they were lizards. The fear and caution of the sailors were ludicrous to a lands man—quite as absurd as would be his own first attempts at climbing to the topmast of a frigate. During a tem- porary mutiny of the sailors oh board, a troop ship, I once saw a party of artil- lery men mount the rigging and begin to reef topsails in a gale. The seamen were shamed into returning to their duties. MY Aunt Selina, a most worthy woman—I assure yo...

BURGUNDY. (From All the Year Round.) [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 5 December 1868

BURGUNDY. (From All the Year Round.) A RECENT distinguished and sensible writer on vinology has penned a pretty rhapsody on the contrast between the feminine claret and the masculine Bur- gundy. To our mind claret is the agreeable companion, Burgundy the sound friend. One pleasant author, that most delightful of all-characters, a well-read medical man, says that Bourdeaux is a model of purity and freshness, and resembles young, fresh, laughing, innocent girlhood. We may admire the rosebud and the snowdrop, but there is a place in our affections for something fuller, warmer, sounder, and more voluptuous. As is Jeremy Taylor to Bunyan, Aphrodite to a Wood nymph, the Olympic Jove to the ever youthful Apollo, so is Burgundy to Claret. During the reign of Louis the Four teenth a great controversy raged in the Sorbonne among the black-capped doctors of the black and scarlet gowns, the bloodletters and coffin-makers of the days of Moliere, their relentless enemy. A wild young student, fres...

POLICE COURT. FRIDAY, DECEMBER 4TH, 1868. (Before the Police Magistrate and F. A. Tompson, Esq., J.P.) ALLSWORTH v. PEREIN.—INSULTING AND ABUSIVE LANGUAGE.—John Perrin was sum- moned. by Henry Allsworth for having used towards him insulting and abusive language calculated to produce a breach of the peace. Henry Allsworth deposed that on last Tues-   day he walked into the shop of Mr. Haydon, wheelwright, and asked Haydon and others who were in the shop to join against the butchers, and for that purpose to meet at the Court-house on the next evening when de- fendant, who was in the shop, abused him and used towards him the opprobrious terms mentioned in the information.—Richard Hey- don deposed to having seen Allsworth enter his shop, and Perrin who was previously there used towards him the violent language named.—The Bench found defendant guilty and lined him the sum of £1 and costs of Court 5s. 6d, or in default, one month's im- prisonment in Wagga Wagga Gaol.

LAKE ALBERT VINEYARD. (MR. W. MACLEAY's.) [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 5 December 1868

LAKE ALBERT VINEYARD. (MR. W. MACLEAY's.) THIS beautiful spot is situated about four miles from Wagga. Wagga. Unlike the majority of Australian lakes, Lake Albert is remarkable for great natural beauty. Wooded hills enclose it on one side, while on the other a wide stretch of comparatively open country - slopes gracefully to the water's edge. The lake is about three miles round, generally free from snags, and in its quiet, placid   beauty presents a marvellous contrast to the usual dry monotony of bush scenery. It is on the western slope of this lovely lake that Mr. Macleay with admirable judgment has formed his vineyard. The idea, we believe, was suggested during a visit that Mr. Mac- leay paid to the Lake with a well known gentleman of this town and a celebra- ted wit, orator and wine connoiseur of Sydney. We do not know to which of the distinguished trio the bright idea first occurred, or whether, which is perhaps more probable, it was due to the genius loci, and fla...

SYDNEY GOSSIP. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] December 2nd. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 5 December 1868

SYDNEY GOSSIP. 1 [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] December 2nd. Two matter of somewhat different bearing   have characterised this week, and given our citizens some little excitement, viz., the opening of St. Andrew's Cathedral, and the Municipal elections. It is almost impossible to say which led to most outside " yabber," the religious or the munici-political event. The former, however, was un grand succès, the solemnities being gone through in a most impressive and dignified style. There was not a single hitch from the commencement to the end of the ceremonies, and even the most zealous member of the Protestant Political Association must have admitted that there was some slight difference yet between the " manoeuvres " of the Church of England and that of Rome. The dailies will have duly informed you of all the particulars of the service, who officiated, quantity of attend- ance, and so on and so forth. All I have to add is that there was a very jolly luncheon, at which...

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. THE LATE RACES. To the Editor of the Wagga Wagga Advertiser. SIR,—Will you be kind enough to insert in the columns of your popular journal, a few thoughts on racing in general, and our own last races in particular. I have often reflec- ted on the supposed advantages of the race course ; moral advantage I can see none ; pe- cuniary advantage seems to be confined to sellers of liquors, and bookmakers. It is asserted that racing promotes the breeding of useful animals ; this I deny. The race horse may be an ornamental, but certainly is not a useful beast. He does not make a good stock-horse, or a good cavalry horse, and certainly not a good carriage horse—the breed must be mixed before usefulness can be reached. Our last races cost their promoters ab...

HAY. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 5 December 1868

HAY. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] AN astronomical lecture in aid of the funds of the local hospital was delivered last Mon- day evening, in the largo room adjoining Cox's Hotel, by Mr. Godfrey, of Pevensey station. Numbers of curiously dissolving views, introduced to illustrate the able lec- turer's remarks, afforded infinite amusement and not a little instruction to the large audience which had assembled. Proceeds, about £16, which, with the Government grant in aid, of pound for pound, equalled a contribution of over £30 to the hospital funds. Mr. John Menon, one of our most indus- trious townsmen, has established a brewery in our immediate vicinity. We are promised that in the course of a fortnight he will be able to supply the district with his light local brew, much better adapted for consump- tion in this trying climate than the heavy, heady English ale. Should Menon's ale support the promise of its character, a very large demand may be safely predicted for it. The doctrine of...

TRAVELLING SHEEP. To the Editor of the Wagga Wagga Advertiser. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 5 December 1868

TRAVELLING SHEEP. To the Editor of the Wagga Wagga, Advertiser. SIR, — Knowing the large circulation of your valuable paper, I take the opportunity of asking you to give publicity to the follow- ing facts, as a warning to others going to their summer abodes with stock. The other day, I was travelling through a run within ten miles of Wagga Wagga, with a few sheep, amongst which were about three thousand full-bellied ewes. When they got to the above-mentioned station they were very badly off for water, and there was water in abundance close to the road, so I let them to the water, when I heard a shout, and I be- hold a woman, a Wagga Wagga Amazon, coming in hot haste, followed by a troop of others. Their shouts and yells put me in mind of Du Chaillu's description of a family of gorillas instead of a few Christians coming to impound a flock of sheep. After a des- perate struggle, in which, however, no lives were lost, the sheep and I were secured, and I had to ransom them by paying ni...

GENERAL NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 5 December 1868

GENERAL NEWS. THE COUNTRY IN QUEENSLAND.—We take the following particulars respecting the dread- ful condition of parts of the northern country from the Northern Argus:-"From all we can learn, it is impossible to picture the de- plorable shifts to which squatters are reduced owing to the continued severity of the drought. The country is so completely denuded of feed that stock are dying in all directions of star- vation, and in some instances the owners of stations are actually prisoners on their runs, owing to the impossibility of getting a horse in condition to carry them away. On the Belyando and all the outlying districts stores of all descriptions are exhausted, and team- sters refuse to face the road with supplies except at exorbitant rates, and in some in- stances decline to do so at any price, as their teams would be certain to perish for want of feed.—Amongst other correspondents, one writes us saying—' We are all heartily sick of the drought, and as the subject begins to p...

HOME NEWS. (From the English Papers.) [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 5 December 1868

HOME NEWS. (From the English Papers.) A YOUNG lady, the other day, ventured to try her swimming powers, in a very rough sea, at Lowestoft ; she was soon carried out of her depth, and could not return. ' Her screams were heard, and in a moment a slen- der girl threw off her jacket and hat, rushed fearlessly through the heavy waves, and swam to her rescue, bringing the young lady in, to the admiration of all beholders. This noble act was done by the daughter of Mr. Cook, the proprietor of the bathing machines in the front of the Battery-green, and it is the second time that this brave girl has risked her own life to save that of another. THE South London Press reports that an itinerant Dissenting preacher in South Lon- don recently delivered the following extraor- dinary piece of advice as to the best means of avoiding temptation :-" When you see a dog coming down the street, if you pick up a stone, and pretend to throw it, he'll cut and run—he'll understand " stone-ology ;" just the ...

STOCK REPORT. ADVERTISER Office, Friday Evening. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 5 December 1868

STOCK REPORT.                   ADVERISR Office,   Friday Evening. The drought here has so far broken up that it   commenced to rain, as we commence to write, and we can only hope, that it will be a   continuous downpour, and that the district generally will get the benefit of it. But it   must be a downpour and a heavy one too to supply our wants, which are too forcibly in-       dicated by the numbers of stock, both, sheep, and cattle travelling for grass and water.   No less than 100,000 sheep, besides, cattle,   have passed Wagga Wagga on their passage to the mountains in search of subsistence during the season of drought. These are not the Caterpillars alluded to by our cor- respondent Dingo in own last-issue, but the   property of pro...

MESSRS. GEORGE FORSYTH AND CO'S. REPORT. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 5 December 1868

MESSRS. GEORGE FORSYTH AND CO'S.   REPORT.       FAT CATTLE.—We hear of no transactions this week. We have a small mob in our hands which we have placed under offer. Good fat cattle may be quoted : For. bullocks, 5/ 10s to 5/ 15s ; cows, 4/ 10s to 4/ 15s. FAT SHEEP.—No sales. It is difficult to give quotations, and prices may be said to   be nearly nominal: For prime fat wethers,   5s to 6s asked. STORE CATTLE.—This description of stock is still in demand, and prices are well main- tained. We have sold 950 head bullocks   and 50 cows on account of Messrs. Gordon   and Forsyth, Barellan station, to a Vic-   torian buyer near Melbourne, at satisfac- tory price and terms. We have a mob   now near Wagga Wagga reported to be a   fine lot of stores, these we have placed   under offer. Mixed lots may be quoted, 50s to 60s ; bullocks, 60...

PRIZE     OF ONE HUNDRED GUINEAS FOR THE       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 sou...

MELBOURNE. Messrs. Dalmahoy Campbell and Co. report :- December 4th, 8.55. FAT CATTLE.—Best bollocks, from seven pounds to eight pounds ten shillings. FAT SHEEP.—Best wooled wethers, ten shillings ; shorn ditto, at from seven to eight shillings. THE PUBLIC V. THE BUTCHERS.—A meet- ing was held at the Court-house on Wednesday evening to consider the late rise in the tariff of the butchers. A strong feeling was very generally expressed against the increase, but most of the speakers were more energetic than polite, and the result was something very like a general row. No practical conclusion was arrived at, though a good deal was said about getting up a co-operative Butchers' Society, and going in heavily for cheap mutton and beef.   HAWKINS v. F. A.

Wagga Wagga Advertiser " This is true liberty, when freeborn men, Having to advise the public, may speak free." MILTON. SATURDAY, DECEMBER 5, 1868. THE announcement in our last issue of a prize of one hundred guineas for the best essay on the future land policy of the colony, is only an indication of the great public anxiety which is felt with regard to that policy. We have no desire to prejudge the present Ministry, which in many respects Ave were glad to hail as a probable improvement on its predecessor. We were quite willing to suppose that even to Mr. ROBERTSON time might have brought some modi- cum of common sense on this subject, and that with the logical Mr. FORSTER at the Lands' Office a measure would be brought forward not utterly opposed to all the best interests of the country. But Mr. ROBERTSON in opposition and Mr. ROBERTSON in office are two very different individuals ; and Mr. FORSTER chewing the cud of bitter medita- tion at the Union and the same gentleman once more...
