LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 9 December 1868

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. THE NEW POST OFFICE BUILDING.—This   unfortunate building, twice put up and twice pulled down again, would soon become, as a friend of ours remarked, a standing joke in Wagga, if it wasn't always tumbling down. Nobody seems to know the exact reason for the repeated condemnation of the building, except there was something wrong about the mortar, which did not contain the proper proportion of cement, or contained no cement at all. Certain it is that the other morning   three men were to be seen busily demolishing the walls that four men had been as busily employed for some weeks before in erecting. The Clerk of Works Mr. Roberts, who con- demned the building will ensure its proper re-erection this time by remaining here to superintend it.     WILD HORSES.—Numerous are the ills to   which, in this season of no grass and less water, human flash of the pastoral order is heir to. It is bad enough to be ov...

SUPREME COURT, SYDNEY. THURSDAY, DECEMBER 3, 1867. SITTINGS IN BANCO. (Before their Honors Sir ALFRED STEPHEN, Chief Justice, Mr. Justice HARGRAVE, and Mr. Justice CHEEKE.) HAWKINS V. TOMPSON. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 9 December 1868

SUPREME COURT, SYDNEY. THURSDAY, DECEMBER 3, 1867. SITTINGS IN BANCO.       (Before their Honors Sir ALFRED STEPHEN, Chief Justice, Mr. Justice HARGRAVE, and Mr. Justice CHEEKE.) HAWKINS V. TOMPSON. Mr. G. M. Stephen, for plaintiff, moved   for a rule nisi for new trial of the above case. It was an action for assault. The plaintiff was the editor of a newspaper at Wagga   Wagga, and the defendant a magistrate. The latter had horsewhipped the former on account of an article which had appeared in the paper of which plaintiff was editor. The defendant had paid £20 into Court, and the jury had found that this was sufficient. A rule nisi was asked for upon several grounds, the principle of which, were—that the verdict was against evidence, that the case could not have been fairly tried at Wagga Wagga (where the community was small and the parties intimately known to the jurors), and that the jury had been improperly told th...

NARANDERA. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 9 December 1868

NARANDERA. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] I HAVE little or nothing of interest to forward this week. Of course there is the ever open subject—the weather, and it is quite enliven- ing to be enabled to write that the tempera- ture is, I believe, something under 120 ; and that since my last, I have heard of nine of our townspeople having suddenly evaporated —which is, at once, a matter for congratula- tion and surprise. Since Thursday afternoon, clouds have been gathering, and (I need scarcely remark) the hope has been, and is general, that we should have the much-needed rain ; but up to the present time, Friday night, beyond a few scattered drops, our wishes have not been realised. The country round here looks perfectly wretched, and I hear that frontage paddocks are in some localities, barer now than they have ever been known to be for years. Upon some runs the effect of short feed, bad water, and intense heat combined has already began to exhibit itself amongst the back country herd...

SELECT POETRY. BETWEEN THE SHOWERS. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 12 December 1868

SELECT POETRY.   BETWEEN THE SHOWERS. Down it came—the summer shower— Bursting from the nimbus cloud ; Spending its impetuous power On the great tree, strong and proud. And the great tree murmured loud As it caught the summer shower Turn'd it to a diamond dower. When the cloud its passion spent, Broke and drifted, pale and rent, Like a king refreshed with wine, Shone the tree. O heart of mine ! Pass through passion's frequent stress With a like strong steadfastness. Down it came—the summer shower— Rushing through the sobbing air ;   Beating on the lily-flower, Till she trembled in despair For her blossom, white and fair, In sad silence bent the flower, Yielding perfume through the hour, Till the sunbeams came and shed A new glory on her head, On her robes, more dazzling white, And her crown, more golden bright, Thus my heart is patience tried, Thus is meekness glorified. Down it came—the summer rain— Dashing through the darken'd sky, On the green and tender...

DOCTORS. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 12 December 1868

DOCTORS. DOCTORS ! Healers of the sick, gratu- itous ministers of the poor ! I lift my hat to you with sincere respect and approbation. When I said, a while ago, that there was one calling which conferred even greater benefits on humanity than the clergy, it was to yours that I referred. There are, doubtless, quacks, charlatans, money grubbers of a vile sort, even among your honourable body, as elsewhere ; you tell me so yourselves, indeed (for you abuse one another, as though you were all Irish, and the most jealous set of people under the sun) : but, for my part, I have seen few specimens of your calling otherwise than generous and kindly hearted ; your good deeds, within my own personal knowledge (although oftentimes you do not know it, for you do them by stealth), are as many as are the hairs of my head— and I am not yet very bald. There is another most admirable quality about you : you have always something to say that has an interest ; this is not only because you are conversa...

FINE LADIES. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 12 December 1868

FINE LADIES. SPEECH is another vehicle of fine ladyism. To call a spade a spade and nothing more, is the height of vulga- rity in the minds of certain of the finer sort ; but to call it an agricultural im- plement is a periphrase betokening correct taste and nice feeling. But then the fine lady always uses dictionary words in place of the more colloquial ; and whenever she has the chance, mul- tiplies her syllables as so many orna- ments to her parts of speech. She commences a thing and she concludes it, but she neither begins it nor ends it ; she always says that she requires some- thing, never that she wants it ; she re- serves, she does not lay by ; she derives pleasure from, and is not pleased ; and she retains a thing in her memory, she never simply remembers or learns by heart. These are only examples of the whole staple. But she is fine in her choice of words, she is finer still in her choice of topics, which she subjects to a winnowing process, as she herself would say, that...

GENERAL GRANT. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 12 December 1868

GENERAL GRANT. GRANT'S public career throughout has   been attended with a modesty, simpli- city, and reticence which have greatly enhanced him in the public estimation. His military government of the defeated Confederate States has been marked by a rigid impartiality. He has been proof against the seductions of politi- cians ; no consideration has induced him to make inopportune disclosures of his political views. He has always declared himself incapable of speech making ; when he has received the ovations of his enthusiastic fellow countrymen, he has confined himself to one or two sentences expressing his thanks for their good opinion. Ap- pearing little in society, he does not shine in it, being unused to its graces and courtly phrases. That there is however, a quiet humour about him, is evident from the famous despatch in which he bottled up the notorious Gene- ral Butler. His habits are thoroughly those of a liver in camps and on tented fields. He is an inveterate ...

MELBOURNE. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] December 5th, 1868. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 12 December 1868

MELBOURNE. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] December 5th, 1868.   MELBOURNE Is in a state of stagnation, and deputations. Socially, the amount , of news is at the minimum. This is the " stupid season," and everybody waits for the panto- mime to begin and shearing to be completed By the way, intending Visitors to town may   be interested in knowing that the two panto- mimes for Christmas are " Sinbad the Sailor " and " Robinson Crusoe," the latter being   from the pen of Mr. Ackhurst, the author of the " Siege of Troy," and will be produced at the Royal. It may, perhaps, seem strange that I should open my first letter to you by an account of theatrical doings, but as I have got upon the subject, I will tell you all I   know about it. In the first place, then Miss     Marian Dunn will leave the stage in a week   or so, on account of ill-health. This young lady has achieved great popularity here, by...

DEAR SIR,—In your issue of Saturday last, observed a letter signed G. F. C., which I   should not condescend to notice, were it not so entirely devoid of truth. Had the writer been attending to his duty instead of the races, I have no doubt, the sheep in his charge would all have gone quietly on their road, as did the one flock, in charge of a man who had the good sense, when told he was on purchased land, to turn his sheep on to the road and go on. The next insisted on going to a lagoon to give the sheep water, to accomplish which, they must travel three quarters of a mile over my purchased land. It is not to be supposed any selector, or other proprietor would quietly submit...

A BATTLE OF ANTS. To the Editor of the Wagga Wagga Advertiser. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 12 December 1868

A BATTLE OF ANTS.       To the Editor of the Wagga Wagga Advertiser. SIR,—A circumstance occurred this morn- ing, in my verandah, which astonished and deeply interested me and my family.         The small black ants, so common through- out the colony, have formed numerous settle- ments, or " Free Selections," in unpleasant proximity to my house, and about its founda- tions. From these natural industrial schools are poured forth myriads of labourers, who   prosecute their daily avocations with persis- tent enterprise and unflagging energy from the earliest glow of morning, to the shadowy stillness of " dewy eve." So far as my observations have extended, I have never witnessed anything but perfect   amity amongst the members of the different colonics.   This morning, however, has tended to con- vince me that these little creatures are liable to be acted upo...

Parliament of New South Wales. LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. TUESDAY, DECEMBER 8. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 12 December 1868

Parliament of Hew South Wales. LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. TUESDAY, DECEMBER 8. Mr. Robert Owen, took his seat as a mem- ber of the Council. Mr. OWEN then proceeded to make his statement. He intimated that he had been appointed a member of the Executive Council, and that it would be his duty to conduct the public business in the Council. Sir W. MANNING followed, with an ex- planation of his acceptance of the office of Attorney-General, giving, in the course of his address, the exact terms of acceptance, as follows :-" Sir W. M. Manning accepts the position of Attorney-General non-politically. He is therefore, not to be a member of the Cabinet, nor to represent the Government in the Legislative Council. The patronage of the law department will not be claimed by him ; but it is understood that no legal ap- pointment will be made without his concur- rence. It will remain for consideration whether he shall hold a seat in the Executive Council, with a view to give assistance, as occasion may re...

LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY. TUESDAY, DECEMBER 8. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 12 December 1868

LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY. TUESDAY, DECEMBER 8. The re-elected members of the Adminis- tration, Mr. Robertson, Mr. Forster, Mr. Samuel, Mr. Sutherland, and Mr. Egan, took the oath and their seats. Mr. ROBERTSON took the opportunity, in moving the printing of certain documents laid on the table, to offer some explanation of the position in which the Government stood. He should not state who had been consulted, as that practice had fallen into disuse ; and he need not say who composed the Adminis- tration, ns their names had appeared in the Government Gazette. He admitted that there had been difficulties in forming an Adminis-   tration ; first, because their successors had been a coalition Government ; and next, be- cause of the admitted unsatisfactory state of the public finance. The only peculiarity, about the present Administration was that its Attorney-General did not not hold a po- litical appointment. He promised, also, if he remained in office, to submit to the House a...

MISCELLANEOUS EXTRACTS [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 12 December 1868

MISCELLANEOUS EXTRACTS A PATERNAL GOVERNMENT.—Amusing stories are told of the precautions taken by or for the   Emperor of Russia, on the occasion of his forthcoming visit to Warsaw. The Poles are warned never to walk about in groups, or   even two together during the Czar's stay   there. Men must all wear round hats, and be shaved on the same pattern. Carriages   are not to go through certain streets, except at appointed hours. The inhabitants have     also been ordered to clean the fronts of their houses, which must be decorated with gar- lands, and lighted up at night as by a " spon- taneous illumination.'' All this would be in-   credible, if there were not a very, special and circumstantial decree upon the subject. A LUCKY GAMBLER.—The Paris papers that busy themselves with the chronicle of Baden-Baden, to which at this season a large portion of the gayer and looser classes of Paris, soci...
