Parliament of New South Wales LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY. THURSDAY, DECEMBER 10. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 16 December 1868

Parliament of New South Wales LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY. THURSDAY, DECEMBER 10. Mr. PARKES gave notice of a motion for a detail of travelling expenses paid to Mr. Robertson, Mr. C'owper, and other Ministers. The same gentleman gave notice that he should move that papers now in his possession relative to the attempted assassination of the Duke of Edinburgh be laid on the table, and printed. Mr. ROBERTSON moved the adjournment of the House, in order to offer a few words of explanation. Exception had been taken by Mr. Windeyer to a certain portion of the letter road last night by that gentleman. He (Mr. Robertson) had been surprised that ob- jection should be made to this passage, for he had been on terms of the greatest intimacy with the late Richard Windeyer, and if the hon, gentleman doubted it, he was ready to show that gentleman's letters which he had received from that hon. gentleman's father many years ago. As to the accusation that he had tried to tempt the hon. gentleman from his p...

"THE GHOST" IN THE HOUSE. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 16 December 1868

" THE GHOST " IN THE HOUSE. Mr. MACLEAY jumped up and, speakmg at Parkes, requested Robertson to do him the favor of being so kind as to allow him (Mr. M.) to ask him (Mr. R.) a few conundrums. 1st—Is the Government aware of the exist- ence of any dead man who was killed with the knowledge of that Government ? 2nd— Did the Inspector-General ever make any re- port of the intention of anybody to shoot Prince Alfred, Mr. Parkes, Mr. Dignam, or any other member of the Royal Family ? 3rd—If so, would the Government object to produce " anybody's " carte de visite, one of his socks, a lock of his hair, his portemanteau or some other personality by which he might be recognised ? 4th—Are the Government in possession of any verbal evidence from the dead man's lips in reference to his murder, or have they any posthumous document signed by the same party in proof thereof ? or, lastly, are they prepared to produce the victim and let him, himself, tell who mur- dered him, and whether he objected ...

STOCK, STATION, AND WOOL REPORTS. SYDNEY. GOLDSBOROUGH, BURT & CO.'S. REPORT. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 16 December 1868

STOCK, STATION, AND WOOL   REPORTS.       SYDNEY. GOLDSBOROUGH, BURT & Co.'s. REPORT. FAT CATTLE,—The supply to hand this week amounted to about 650 head, the major part of which consisted of second and inferior quality. For a few really prime pens competition was keen ; but beyond that the trade bought as if they   were surfeited with beef. Prime bullocks worth from 6/ to 7/; second do, 3/10s to     4/10s ; best cows, 5/ to 6/.   FAT SHEEP.—As the bulk of the sheep in   and about Sydney are in the hands of dealers, the prices this weak have been fully maintained. We would advise those who have prime lots to press forward while prices are good. Prime wedders are worth from 9s 10d to 10s 6d (shorn) ; second do, from 7s to 8s ; prime ewes, 8s. Our sales this week have been a few small lots about town at quotations.   STORE SHEEP AND CATTLE.—Nothing ...

MESSRS, MORT AND CO.'S REPORT. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 16 December 1868

MESSRS, MORT AND CO.'S REPORT. WOOL.—A fair business has been done this week, and for parcels in good condition   there is a brisk demand, at prices fully equivalent to the rates realised at London September sales ; but for greasy wools, and clips of low character, there is little com- paction, and buyers look for still further decline in our valuations. A large quan- tity of greasy wool is in the market, and as all the woolwashing establishments are fully employed, growers will be compelled ???? to hold their wool for some weeks, or submit to sell at prices that will allow for interest on the purchase money com- mensurate with the delay that must of ne- cessity take place before the wool can be scoured. The KK wool, a very good par- cel of 96 bales, scoured by Mr. Hinchcliffe, which we bought in at last week's auction, we have since placed at 21d per lb. Prices   currant : Fleece wool, fair, and free of seed, 12d to 15d ; ditto inferior, 8d to 12d ; scoure...

MELBOURNE. THIS LONDON AND AUSTRALIAN AGENCY CORPORATION (LIMITED) REPORT: [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 16 December 1868

MELBOURNE.   THE LONDON AND AUSTRALIAN AGENCY CORPORATION (LIMITED) REPORT : WOOL : The attendance at our sale this after- noon was very numerous and the demand for all the lots offered was first-rate. The catalogue offered amounted to 1,844 bales, of which the larger portion found buyers   at full rates. We sold greasy up to 9d per lb, and for fleece we had offers to near upon 20d per lb. We are glad to notice a   strong desire to purchase on the part of   buyers, and we hope the present favourable prices will continue.   TALLOW : We submitted 100 casks of mutton tallow at our sale this afternoon. The de- mand for shipping parcels continues good and we can readily place further consign- ments at the prices at which we sold to-day. The whole offered was sold at £38 per ton for mutton and to £34 10s for beef.

DALMAH[?]Y CAMPBELL AND CO.'S REPORT [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 16 December 1868

DALMAHOY CAMPBELL AND CO.'S REPORT FAT CATTLE.—840 head have been entered   for the week, 620 of which have been sold to-day, the quality of the lots offered being     fair, but nothing prime. Although the above supply was the smallest we have had for some weeks, and there was also a very     good attendance of the trade, yet there   was very little improvement in prices,   which can only be accounted for by the       glutted state of the sheep and lamb mar-   kets, which operates very much against the consumption of good beef at 20s per 100   lbs. We quote best bullocks at from 7/1 to 8/ ; second, 5/ to 6/ ; inferior, 3/ to 4/ ; best cows at from 5/ 10s to 6/ 12s 6d ; second, 3/ 10s to 4/ 10s ; inferior, from 3/ upwards. We have sold 50 head for Messrs. Ritchie   Brothers, Gowrie Park, at from £5 5s to 6/ 12s 6d, av...

ETTERSHANK, EAGLESTONE, & CO'S. REPORT. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 16 December 1868

ETTERSHANK, EAGLESTONE, & CO'S. REPORT FAT CATTLE.—The supply entered for the week amounted to only 840 head, over 600 of which were offered to-day. Although the number to hand was moderate, yet the excessive supply of sheep and lambs, and   the small attendance of country buyers,   considerably affected the sale, and instead of a slight advance, which might reasonably have been expected, no improvement was effected on last week's rates. Best pens of bullocks (not prime) brought from 7/ to   8/ ; second quality do, from 5/ 10s to 6/ ; inferior do, from 2/ 17s 6d to 4/. Cows in proportion. We have sold a small draft for Mr. Beattie at quotations. FAT SHEEP.—About 24,000 ware penned in addition to about from 4000 to 5000 sold and held over outside, This was the largest supply yot offered in one week in this market, and being about double the number wanted by the butchers, sales of all, but good to prime qualities, wore mado at a shade und...

PRIZE OF ONE HUNDRED GUINEAS FOIt THE BEST ESSAY ON THE LAND QUESTION. IT is granted on all sides that the Land Law requires amendment : the Squatter declares if ; 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 male 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...

BALLARAT LIVE STOCK MARKET. MESSRS NORMAN R. MACLEOD AND CO.'S REPORT:— [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 16 December 1868

BALLARAT LIVE STOCK MARKET. MESSRS NORMAN R. MACLEOD AND Co.'s REPORT :-   FAT CATTLE.—542 were yarded yesterday, being the fullest supply for the last month. The greater number were good to prime quality, and balance of a middling descript- tion, with a proportion in little better than store condition. The attendance of buyers was good and the market lively, but the prices realised were about 10s. a head lower than last week ; nevertheless our top quotatines are higher, on account of the superiority of some of the cattle—Thom- son's and Lamb's, in particular, being very good. Quotations—Best pens bullocks, 8/ to 11/ ; second, 6/ 10s to 7/ 10s ; inferior, 4/ to 5/ 10s. Averages—Thomson's, bullocks 9/, cows, 7/ 7s 3d ; Lamb's bullocks 7/ 19s 8d cows 6/ 10s 8d ; Adeney's, bullocks 7/ 12s 6d, cows 5/ 16s 9d ; Bannister's, bul- locks 7/ 5s 6d, cows 6/ 11s 9d ; Learmonth's bullocks 6/ 18s 4d, cows 5/ 18s 6d. FAT SHEEP.—13,296 were penned, being, as we now consider it, about ...

Wagga Wagga Advertiser " This is true liberty, when freeborn men, Having to advise the public, may speak free." MILTON. WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 16, 1868. THE Sydney journals were good enough the other day to reprint a paragraph from this paper descriptive of the doings of certain rowdies of Wagga Wagga. To-day we are in a position to return the compliment, and republish   for the edification of the peaceful pub- lic of these parts the report of the say ings and doings of the rowdies of the   motropolis. We admit at once the en- tire superiority of the metropolitan article. The " roughs " of the city have this great advantage over the roughs of the bush that they fight with far more formidable weapons, and make far more noise. There can be no com- parison between the bludgeon of Mr. PARKES, or the bullock-whip of Mr. ROBERTSON, and the ordinary brickbat with which some of our windows are so familiar ; and who that has heard both would for a moment think of pit- ...

POLICE COURT. , SATURDAY, DECEMBER 12, 1868.   (Before the Police Magistrate.) ATTEMPTING TO COMMIT SUICIDE. M'Namara Russell was brought before the Bench, charged with having at Kyamba, on or about the 11th instant, feloniously and of malice aforethought attempted to kill and murder himself. Timothy Rogers, a constable stationed at Kyamlia, stated that the prisoner was given into his charge at Kyamba by one George Smith, on the eleventh of December, for attempting to shoot himself with a revolver (produced), which was handed to witness by Mr. Smith. Witness told prisoner the charge against him, but he seemed to take no notice of it, but " to laugh it off." Since the prisoner had been in custody, he appeared to be rational; and witness had not noticed anything remarkable in his behaviour or conversation. To Prisoner : At the time I took you in charge, you ap- peared to be under the influence of drink ; but after lying down two or three hours at the lock-up, you awoke as...

COMBANING. [FROM A CORRESPONDENT.] [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 16 December 1868

COMBATING. . ' ' : [FROM A CORRESPONDENT.] ALTHOUGH I cannot offer you much news from this rather out-of-the-way place, I am induced to try my hand at writing what there is to tell, in the hope that it may not be altogether unacceptable. There is, how- ever, a sad lack of stimulus to an industrious writer for your paper—or any paper—from thess parts, in the fact, that he cannot at pre- sent calculate within a fortnight of the time when he may see his literary effort in all the dignity of type. In short, if you do me the honor to print this, I may, or I may not have the chance of reading it again some ton days or a fortnight hence. And this will serve to introduce the first subject I have to notice, viz., the lamentable want of postal communication all along the Levels, between the Murrumbidgee and the Lachlan. Here is the Combining run and public-house (pretty well known as Comans's), although no very great distance from the line of mail road between Yass and Wagga, quite cut off fr...

FIRST AND LAST, [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 19 December 1868

FIRST AND LAST,   First love is a pretty romance, But not half so sweet as is reckoned ;   And when one awakes from the trance, There's a vast stock of bliss in a second. And ee'n should a second subside,   A lover should never despair,   The world is uncommonly wide,   And the women uncommonly fair.   The poets their raptures may tell, Who have never been put to the test : A first love is all very well, But, believe me, the last love's the best. .

SELECT POETRY. TIME'S HEALING. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 19 December 1868

Then, " bring forth fruit with patience," O my soul ! Time creepeth with a feeble ling'ring pace, He bendeth down his aged back and stoops; Yet aids the suff'ring in their toilsome race. Then, " bring forth fruit with patience," O my soul ! Beneath the shelter of his soft dusk wing He leadeth on in welcome shade to peace, And gently smoothens every rugged thing. Then, " bring forth fruit with patience," O my soul! His scythe, with nosieless, surely-sweeping swath, Mows down abuses, prejudices, wrongs ; Induces amity, assuages wrath.   Then, " bring forth fruit with patience," 0 my soul ! His kind old hand, for all its trembling old, Hath oft the skill to disentangle knots That we have hopelessly intricate held. Then, " bring forth fruit with patience,...
