STOCK REPORT. ADVERTISER Office, Friday Evening. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 12 December 1868

STOCK REPORT.   ADVERTISER Office, Friday Evening. The drought still continues in all its intensity, and we see no prosed of relief. We must   wait and suffer. The rainfall, which we so hopefully reported in our last, passed away without conferring more than momentary benefit ; of short duration, it was insufficient   to give moisture to the parched earth, and did no more than damp the tanks and dams, which have more the appearance of ovens than that of water reservoirs. Water- holes, never before known to be without water, are now dry, and springs which in past years have, in the most trying season, yielded an ample supply, have now completely failed.   In fact, the whole country throughout these districts is fast becoming a waste, waterless and grassless. These few stations which have not already removed their stock are now preparing to do so, and yet, much as we suffer, accounts from other districts represent us as being belter ...

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. ??. t 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...

Wagga Wagga Advertiser "This is true liberty, when freeborn men, Having to advise the public, may speak free." MILTON. SATURDAY, DECEMBER 12, 1868. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 12 December 1868

Wagga Wagga Advertiser " This is true liberty, when freeborn men, Having to advise the public, may speak free."     MILTON.   SATUR DAY, DECEMBER 12, 1868. THAT there are a great many questions misunderstood, partially understood, or not understood at all, in this colony, is only to say that we are very much like every other colony. In all new com-   munities, commencing life under new conditions, and with new necessities, men are mere gropers for the light. Experience is fruitless for them, because their case is, or is supposed to be, pe- culiar. The wisest words of the wisest men of older lands fall unheeded, be cause they were applied, in the first instance, in a different hemisphere ; as if latitude could alter truth, or as if the obligations of the decalogue varied with the climate. This carious fact, the tendency of new countries to have everything about them as new as them- selves, is observable in many respects, and in noth...

TELEGRAPHIC, INTELLIGENCE. SYDNEY.   Herald Office, Friday, 3.30 p.m.     IN the House yesterday, a motion was made for the production of the papers relating to the " Kiama mystery " and the alleged Fenian conspiracy.     Mr. Parkes at first denied having removed any such papers from the   Government offices, but afterwards ad- mitted that they were, in his possession, and promised to produce them on       Tuesday next.       Mr. Robertson thereupon threatened   to take criminal proceedings against   Mr. Parkes if the papers were not pro- duced to-day. The Want of Confidence debate is   still proceeding. Nearly one thousand (1000) bales of wool were sold yesterday. Prices   were slightly firmer. In the cattle market prices are un- altered. . 1 < ' . ' *' Sheep are sca...

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

TABLE TALK.     They are at it again, hammer and tongs, in     Sydney. By " they " I mean, of course, not the young Cains who held their dying comrade up as a punching-block in Hyde Park, nor yet the City Council. I have no   doubt it will be a long thus before a similar tragedy of " Under the Gaslight " is enacted in Hyde Park and as for their Worships, one doesn't usually take the trouble to " chronicle small beer." I refer, need I say, to those distinguished gentlemen, who for the trifling consideration of " no pay and find their own gas," are good enough to waste their valuable hours in legislation for you and me. I wonder what they will do for us this time—astonish the country and win the prize essay by amending the Land Law, or set a bright example to all holders of   stolen property by repealing the Treason Felony Act and making just restitution of our liberties ? Or will it be merely the old war of...

POLICE COURT. FRIDAY, DECEMBER 11, 1868. (Before the Police Magistrate, T. W. Hammond, and F. A. Tompson, Esqrs., J. P.) [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 12 December 1868

POLICE COURT.         FRIDAY, Decembers 11, 1868. (Before the Police Magistrate, T. W. Ham- mond, and F. A. Tompson, Esqrs., J. P.)   Herminson v. Sinclair.—This was a claim of £10 for wages due. The plaintiff affirmed that he was a shepherd lately in the employ- ment of Mr. William Sinclair, of Eunon-   yareenyah, and was hired by Mr. Sinclair himself, on the 3rd of October last, for two or thres weeks, as he (plaintiff), understood, at the same rate of wages as the other em- ployers, namely, a pound a week. He hired for the shearing, but not for any particular period. After remaining in the service three weeks and three days, he received 15s. 6d. in cash, on account of his wages from Mr. Sinclair, and had bad a few things from the store. About a fortnight before he left, he spoke to the superintendent, Mr. Cummings, and said he would not stay any longer than a week or so, unless he got a pound a week. Mr...

TUMBERUMBA. [FROM A CORRESPONDENT.] [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 12 December 1868

TUMBERUMBA.       [FROM A CORRESPONDENT.]     The country in this neighbourhood is in deed a pleasant change from the dry, yellow plains and paddocks of the Murrumbidgee. It is looking magnificent ; beautiful green hills meet your view on every side, with plenty of water and lots of grass to rejoice the hearts of poor half-famished " travellers," of whom, by the way, there seems to be any number knocking about just now. At present there are four lots of sheep close   to the town, 112,000, Mr. McEvoy's, in charge of Mr. G. F. Bennett, bound for Kiandra ; 22,000, Mr. Ricketson's, going to Jerrygo- billy; 9000, Mr. Godfrey McKinnon's, in charge or Mr. McLeod, and 15,000, Mr. Richmond's, in charge of Mr. Lockhart. All these flocks look well, but they are only a first instalment, for I hear the road between Ten Mile Creek and here is literally lined with sheep.     The diggers about he...

SYDNEY GOSSIP. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] December 9th. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 12 December 1868

SYDNEY GOSSIP.     [FROM OUR-OWN CORRESPONDENT.] December 9th.       A VERY numerous muster of hon. members, and a perfect crowd of strangers in the gal- leries " marked the re-opening of the Legisla- tive Assembly on Tuesday. No less than fifty-three of the former (including Mr. Speaker) were present on the occasion, the majority, (of nine) seating themselves on the Opposition benches. The Premier, gave any amount of promissory notifications as to the future policy of the Government, if the House would only have the kindness to allow them to carry it out. That policy in- cluded Intercolonial Free-trade, a gradual abolition of Ad Valorem duties, some very slight modifications of the Education and Land Acts, and—very, much bravo !—the re- peal of the newspaper tax. There were to be no more fiascos a la mode de Duncan, but united action in every matter in place of indi- vidual absolutism in each department as here- tofor...

ABSENCE. To, watch the long bright hours linger by ;     To see the rosy flush, of Morning break .   O'er shore and sea, o'er upland, hill, and     lake ;   To see the Even darken, deepen, die ; To sea the Moon her nightly duty take, The soft grave glory of her royalty ; While evermore on heart and lip and eye Weighs the dull sense of something lost, or     gone, That leaves no loveliness in things most fair, No music in the ripple's whispering tone, No glory in the golden autumn air,   No joy in life's rich hours told one by one ;—   This is the heavy cross the absent bear ! -Ibid.

BEAUTY AND BRAINS. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 16 December 1868

BEAUTY AND BRAINS. THAT lovely woman fulfils only half her mission when she is unpersonable instead of beautiful, all young men, and all pretty girls secure in the consciousness of their own perfections, will agree. Indeed, it is cruel   to hear the way in which heady youth de- spises ugly girls or fading women, however clever, whose charm lies in their cleverness only, with a counteraction in their plainness. To hear them, one would think that hardness   of feature, like poverty, was a crime volun-   tarily perpetrated, and that contempt was a righteous retribution for the offence. Yet their preference, though so cruelly expressed, is to a certain extent the right thing. When   we are young, the beauty of worn an has a supreme attraction beyond all other posses- sions or qualities, and there are self-evident reasons why it should be so. It is only as we grow older that we know the value of brains, and, while still admiring beauty—...
