MESSRS L. MACPHERSON AND CO.'S REPORT. | Saturday, 27th February. I Horse Market.—We yarded thirty liead of colte, from the Devil's River, on Saturday. Sales were effected at from £4 10s to £7 los; they were principally medium draught; but the continuance of dry weather has pre vented ploughing being proceeded with in many locali ties, and this seriously affected the prices realised. Broken-in-stock—We had the finest lot of heavy drauzht stock forward that we have seen in our bazaar for the last three months. Trade was dull, however, and until the weat-.er breaks we see little prospect of any im provement. The high price of feed and the total absence of pasture prevents anything like speculation by the dealers at present. Prices remain unaltered, say medium draught from £21) to £30; heavy di aught from £40 to £50; good hacks and light harness from £10 to £15; inferior from £3 to £10. Dairy Cattle.—Only a few head forward of Becond rate quality. Prices remain unaltered. On Thursday n...

THE RIFLE DOWNS SCAB CASE. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 3 March 1869

THE RIFLE DOWNS SCAB CASE. Several different and onnfl'cting accounts have reached us as to the scabby sheep at Kifle Downs. Taking these altogether (Bays the Hamilton 8peotator) and applying the ordinary rules of logical arithmetic, we oome to the oonolusion that the following statement is about as oorrect as we can make it at this distanoe, and under evident disadvantages. The Chief Inspector, Mr Curr, who has seen the sheep, prononnoes the flook to b<) infeoted, although it is asserted that there is only one sheep pointed out with a spot of scab on it. Of oourse, if this sheep belongs to the impounded flock, the question of infeotion is settled at once. It is denied, however, that the shetp in question oan be identified as one of the travelling flook, but we do not know how to credit or diBoredit this assertion. The sheep were branded W and 0, and also bore the T brand. Mr M'Lean (tbe putative but objeotive owner), says that this sheep cannot be proved to belong to the...

THE DROUGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 3 March 1869

THE DROUGHT. The Wagga Wagga Express gives the following melancholy account of the state of the country in the Lower Castlereagh district:—"The drought oontinues—that terrible word. How muoh de struction it has caused, and how muoh more is it likely to cause, if it oontinueB longer. On reading the pastoral correspondence of the ' mail.' north, south, and west; or look where you will—even to your own correspondence—all the ory is, the ' drought continues,' with occasional showers. As these showers have only fallen here and there, I believe tl^y do more harm than good, as they have gnncrally been for a few minutes' duration only. They do not penetrate the soil sufficiently, so that whatever has any life in it (the ground from the long continuance of dry weather being hot and parched) must naturally be soalded, there fore it must wither and die. Then, again, where they have oaused any spring of grass, it is imme diately seized upon by hundreds of stock, and in a short time is eaten off...

Medium draught horses hive been more in request than any class. At our yards, nn Saturday, there was scarcely so brisk a business done as usual.

PASTORAL. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 3 March 1869

PASTOR AT,. The colony (says the Wagga Wagga Ex press) has now for some time been entirely free from scab, while in Victoria, on the other hand, the disease has continued to hold its ground in spite of all the legislative measures thac have there been adopted for its preven tion and eradication. These different results it can scarcely be doubted are entirely to be attributed to the difference in the legislative action in reference to the disease taken by the Governments of the two colonies, and with scab still raging in Victoria, it ought to be a matter of very serious consideration as to whether it would be advisable to slacken any of the precautions that we have hitherto taken, or to rashly dispense with any of the machinery that we bave hitherto used with such successful results. It may be that there may be too many sheep inspectors, and that the cost of the existing machinery for the prevention of scab in sheep may be excessive. If so, by all means let the work of retrench ment ...

At the time of the occurrence Mr Thame was in the office engaged with Dr Anderson, of the South Head Road, and in the shop were Mr Moses, Windsor; Mr Robinson, collector for Messrs Learmonth, Dickinson, and Co.; and Mr Thame's assistants, named Lucas, Pepper, and Whitehead.
