SELECT POETRY. METAPHYSICS AND THEOLOGY. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 9 December 1868

SELECT POETRY.   METAPHYSICS AND THEOLOGY.     AT the end of every road there stands a wall,   Not built by hands—impenetrable—bare. Behind it lies an unknown land ; and all The paths men plod, tend to it, and end there. Each man, according to his humour, paints On that bare wall strange landscapes : dark   or bright,   Peopled with forms of fiends, or forms of saints ;   Hells of Despair, or Edens of Delight. Then, to his fellows, " Tremble !" or " Rejoice !" The limner cries, " for lo, the Land be- yond !" And ever, acquiescent to his voice   Faint echoes from that painted wall respond. But now and then, with sacrilegious hand, Some one wipes off those painted land- scapes all, Muttering, " 0 fools, and slow to under- stand, Behold your bourne—the impenetrable wall !" Whereas, an eager, anger'd crowd exclaims,     " Better than yon dead wall—tho' pale a...

TABLE TALK. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 9 December 1868

TABLE TALK.       ANOTHER electrical novelty. By-and- by we may all have houses like Robert   Houdin. The ex-conjuror has turned   his dwelling into an abode of enchant- ment by means of concealed batteries and wires. Spirits invisible seem to do his bidding. He has an electrical concierge, and an electrical groom that feeds his horses with faultless regularity ; electrical clocks and alarums to wake his servants and remind them of their daily duties ; electrical gate-keepers, messengers, and watchmen, and minor appliances a score. But I do not hear   that he has an electrical piano, which is the last new thing. The invention is ingenious, but not commendable, be- cause its object is to drag the piano- forte down to the level of a musical box or automaton organ. The ham- mers of the action are supplied with electro-magnets, which impel the former whenever a galvanic current enters them. The succession and ...

A FRENCH GOURMAND. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 9 December 1868

A FRENCH GOURMAND. . BRILLAT SAVARIN published his famous   book, " The Physiology of Taste," in 1825. ? It was written on the principle of the Almanac des Gourmands (com- menced in 1803), and was the first recognised attempt to treat gastronomy as an intellectual pursuit and a positive profession. Brillat, born at Belley, in 1755, was Judge of the Court of Cassa- tion, and a member of most of the French scientific societies. He began life successfully as an advocate, and in 1789 was elected a member of the Constituent Assembly. He joined the moderate party, did his best to avert cruelty and oppression, and was ap- pointed President of the Civil Tribunal for the department of L'Ain. Pro- scribed during the red terror, Brillat fled to Switzerland, where he consoled himself with science and cooking. He then emigrated to America, where a vast untrodden prairie of gastronomy lay before him. He lived there by teaching French and music. It is said that, having been once out w...

PICKINGS FROM SYDNEY PUNCH. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 9 December 1868

PICKINGS FROM SYDNEY PUNCH. DR. BADHAM TO HIS HAIRDRESSER.— What part of the Arabian Gulf did the   ancients get their perfumes from ? Aroma-ta. Who supplied them with Macassar ? Oileus, King of the Lo- crians. Why did they always have foreigners for their barbers ? To the Greeks all foreigners were Barbari. LATEST A-COUNT FROM BATAVIA.—Our whole staff of police, detectives and   otherwise, failed to get into their slippery clutches, the Count von Attem, of swindling notoriety. Our Dutch brethren seem more " up to trap," for it appears they got at 'im directly he landed at Sourabaya. He is now con- fined to his apartment, and supposed to be suffering from a very sharp attack of Bill-ious fever, a miserable attem of his former self. " THE PARADOX OF THE DAY (A FACT.) —" Mort-ified meat, after several months' test, has been found to be in the highest state of preservation ! WHAT are the religious tendencies of the legal profession ?—Why, (w)ritu- alistic !

THE KYAMBA VINEYARD. (MR. SMITH'S.) [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 9 December 1868

THE KYAMBA VINEYARD.   (MR. SMITH'S.) LAST, but not by any means least, on our list of vineyards is the far-famed Kyamba. It may be said to be twice famous, first for the excellence of its wines, and secondly for the genial, thoroughly old-Australian hospi-   tality of its jolly proprietor, Mr. Smith. " Don't visit Kyamba," said a friend of ours, " without first setting your house in order to   do without you for a week," and there was really some occasion for the warning. If it is not exactly " the bourne from which no traveller returns," it is one from which no sensible traveller would return, if he could   possiblyhelp it. Glorious scenery, exquisite,   semi-mountain air, laden with the rich fragrance of roses and lilacs, and inhaled : under the luxuriant shade of willows and wattles, await the lucky wanderer to Kyamba, the ever-green and ever-beautiful. At present, when the vines and various fruit- trees are in ful...

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. All communication to this journal must be 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 MECHANICS' INSTITUTE. To the Editor of the Wagga Wagga Advertiser. SIR,—I see that " Mick Annick " has been going into me rather strong for having pre- sumed to mention " Our Mechanics' Insti- tute." I am glad to know that my letter to you has had the desired effect, and possibly may induce others more instructive, than " Mick " to come forward. I do not believe he is a Frenchman, though he speaks so much of frogs, and think he must belong to the minor school of frogs, and thus have assimilated some of a frog's ideas. We don't want to croak ; we want some energetic men who will try to improve the Institution, and will do what they promise. I can always help myself. I have visited the Institute since my last letter, and can say nothing more in its favor than th...

THE TEN MILE RACE. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 9 December 1868

THE TEN MILE RACE. THE Murrumbidgee Turf Club at Wagga Wagga in New South Wales have the honor of having first broken from the " red tape " system of following the English method of racing, and of having struck out an original course of their own. In these days when short races are rapidly gaining ground—and we have but few horses in the colony who are able to carry a heavy weight and run two or three miles at any pace—it is some satisfac- tion to know that we have in the interior horses, who, reckoned only third and fourth class on the Randwick and Flemington courses, are able to carry a welter weight in first-rate time. There has, as a matter of course, been any amount of maudlin senti- ment evoked on the subject ; and as one horse, Troilus' has been reported dead, the opponents of all kinds of sport have denounced the ten mile race as " cruelty to animals." Now, the question simply resolves itself into this. Is or is not man entitled to use the horse as a beast of burden ? If man...

GENERAL NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 9 December 1868

GENERAL NEWS. A RAILWAY clerk committed suicide by       jumping into the bay.—Herald's Melbourne   Telegram. MR. BRUCE, a clerk in the Customs, left with his wife, in the steamer Tararua, for New Zealand, as Mr. and Mrs. Bryce ; he is some £3000 in debt raised on bills ; his creditors have sent on to Sydney in the hope that he may be overtaken.—Ibid. The station master in Elsterwick was to-day bitten by a snake, and various remedies were applied, but apparently without avail. Pro- fessor Halford at last injected ammonia into the man's veins, when he revived, and it is to be hoped he will recover.—Ibid. WELLINGTON.—The stables of Hartslet's Royal Hotel wore destroyed by fire this after- noon. The estimated loss is over three hun- dred pounds. The origin of the fire is unknown. Great praise is due to the towns people for their successful efforts in prevent ing the fire from spreading to the adjacent buildings. The premises were insu...

STOCK, STATION, AND WOOL REPORTS. SYDNEY. MESSRS, MORT AND CO.'S REPORT. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 9 December 1868

STOCK, STATION, AND WOOL   REPORTS.         SYDNEY. MESSRS, MORT AND CO.'S REPORT. WOOL : About 15,000 bales of this season's clip have already arrived in Sydney, and upwards of 10,000 bales are on board ship now, en route to London. The news re- ceived by last overland mail has increased   the depression felt in this market, and the   consequence is that low and faulty wools   are difficult to move, many parcels having been offered for sale without eliciting any competition ; but for fine wools in good condition, there are plenty of buyers at prices fully equivalent to those ruling at the last London sales. The accounts from the northern and far western wool-growing districts of Queensland are very deplorable, and unless the drought which has now been so long afflicting these districts soon breaks up, there will be a very considerable de- crease in the number of sheep, and conse-...

ETTERSHASK, EAGLESTONE, & Co's. REPORT. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 9 December 1868

ETTERSHASK, EAGLESTONE, & Co's. REPORT.   FAT CATTLE : The number offered during the week has been quite up to requirements. The quality generally was medium, with a fair proportion of good, but none prime. Sales were well attended, but . competition was dull, and a slight reduction on late rates took place. Good quality beef realised from 17s 6d to 20s per 100lbs.   FAT SHEEP : A full supply offered at the various yards during the week, mostly of medium to inferior qualities, for such a re- duction on late rates had to be submitted to while good to prime qualities were   readily quitted at late rates. Quotations ; Good to prime 54lb-wethers in the wool, 10s to 12s ; ditto shorn, 7s to 9s. STORE CATTLE : The demand southward still continues, and really well-bred lots, of fat- tening ages, are readily disposed of at quo- tations, while inferior lots may be said to be almost unsaleable. Northward there is little or nothing doing. Quotatio...

GOLDSBOROUGH, BURT & CO.'S. REPORT. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 9 December 1868

GOLDSBOROUGH, BURT & Co.'s. REPORT. WOOL : The usual weekly sales were held yesterday (Thursday), when about 2000 bales were submitted to public competition, and although a large quantity was with   drawn, the bulk of wool offered for sale met with purchasers at full rates. Faulty and inferior, as usual, dull of sale, and only realised a comparatively low figure. One very nice parcel of wool, scoured by Mr. A. Hinchcliffe, was bought in at 22¼d, and   afterwards sold at that price. Greasy sells at from 4½d to 8d per lb. : fleece, at from 10d to 15d ; no superior offered ; second good to superior, 18d to 23d. SHEEPSKINS : A large lot offered, and nearly   all quitted at from 2½d to 4¾d per lb. HIDES : At the sales to-day, although a great quantity were offered, the bulk found pur- chasers at prices equal to about 4d per lb. FAT CATTLE.—Dull market this week, there being again a heavy supply forward, fully 950 head offered to the trade; p...

MELBOURNE. THE LONDON AND AUSTRALIAN AGENCY CORPORATION (LIMITED) REPORT: [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 9 December 1868

MELBOURNE. THE LONDON AND AUSTRALIAN AGENCY CORPORATION (LIMITED) REPORT : WOOL.—The competition at our sale this day was fully up to any of the preceding sales, and we had really good offers for all the lots catalogued. A large portion of the wools submitted were low class, and not likely to evoke extreme biddings. The good lots brought forward commanded, as usual, much competition. We refused an offer of 20d. per lb. for one large lot of washed wool, and sold a large clip of greasy at 9⅜d. per lb. The total of the catalogue submitted amounted to 1702 bales. TALLOW.—We only offered a small quantity of tallow this day, the whole of the lots offered were sold at an advance of £1 per ??? last week's sales.

DALMAHOY CAMPBELL AND CO.'S REPORT.   FAT CATTLE.—1,160 Lead were entered for the week, fully one-half of which have been disposed of to-day, the quality of those penned consisting of good seasonable beef, with nothing very prime amongst them ; and although there was a fair average at tendance of town and country buyers, prices were slightly in their favour, and the result of the sales showed a decline of 5s per head on last week's quotations.

BALLARAT LIVE STOCK MARKET MESSRS NORMAN R. MACLEOD AND CO.'S   REPORT :-       FAT CATTLE.—The supply this week was exceedingly small, only 272 head having come to hand, all of which were useful quality, but not prime. There was a moderate attendance of buyers, and during the earlier part of the market sales were brisk, at an advance of last week's rates of 10s a head, but towards the close the demand slackened, and this advance was not fully maintained. Quotations :—Best pens bullocks, 8/10s to 10/ 12s 6d ; second, 7/ to 8/ ; inferior, 5/ to 6/ 10s.

PRIZE OF ONE HUNDRED GUINEAS FOR THE BEST EESSAY 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 Advertiser "This is true liberty, when freeborn men, Having to advise the public, may speak free." MILTON. WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 9, 1868. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 9 December 1868

Wagga Wagga Adertiser " This is true liberty, when freeborn men, Having to advise the public, may speak free."   MILTON. WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 9, 1868. IT is one of the best features in this- world of compensations that violent evils generally work their own remedy. The fiercest fits of madness are suc- ceeded by the longest lucid intervals, and the wildest storm is only a fore- runner of the coming calm. We are foolish to-day that we may be wise to morrow, unless, indeed, we happen to be such utter idiots that even experi- ence cannot teach us that to ran full butt against a stone wall is likely to result in a headache. Some inkling of this great physical truth seems at last to have dawned upon the financiers of Melbourne. They are reported as having at last discovered the error of their ways, and as being almost in a fit frame of mind to return to the plea- sant paths of Free-trade and common sense. With the closing of their port, their eyes have been opened, and in the...
