BUTTERCUPS. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 19 December 1868

BUTTERCUPS. THERE is a strange humour about the subtle gradations by which girlhood passes out of all this free, genial, ire- flective life into the self-consciousness, the reserve, the artificiality of woman hood. It is the sudden discovery of a new sense of enjoyment that first whirls the buttercup out of her purely family affections. She laughs at the worship of her new adorer. She is as far as Dian herself from any return of it ; but the sense of power is awakened, and she has a sort of Puckish pride in bringing her suitor to her feet. No body is so exacting, so capricious, so uncertain, so fascinating as a butter cup, because no one is so perfectly free from love. The first touch of passion renders her more exacting and more charming than ever. She resents the suspicion of a tenderness whose very novelty scares her, and she visits her resentment on her worshipper. If he enjoys a kind farewell overnight, he atones for it by the coldest greeting in the morning. There are days whe...

NEWSPAPER LIFE "OUT WEST." [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 19 December 1868

NEWSPAPER LIFE " OUT WEST." I REGRET to say that many of these gems of far-western periodical litera- ture are occasionally not only scurrilous on the individual attacked, but verge on the sacred precincts of the family circle : holding up to public scorn, the foibles and weakness of the female members of the family of the individual attacked, and even occasionally being so openly coarse and indecent as to preclude their being noticed in this place. Probably, no one likes, when " running " for the honourable office of congressman or supreme state judge, to have it shown in a newspaper how, in an early portion of his career, he murdered his grandmother, and igno- miniously buried her in the back kitchen. Mr. " Artemus Ward," him self a quondam " newspaper man," has exactly struck this nail on the head when he represents in the " con- troversy about a plank road," this attack upon the editor of the Eagle of Freedom. The passage is worth quoting as an epitome of a system : " The road m...

POLITICAL ASSOCIATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 19 December 1868

POLITICAL ASSOCIATIONS. I We fear that we have taken at all events the initiatory steps to that di-   vision of society which in parts of the United Kingdom has been found to be productive of so much evil. The mildest form of such combination is exclusive visiting, exclusive trading, running into a separation still move absolute. There are parties in the United Kingdom, for example, who have not only their separate inns and distinct circles of trade, but also their public conveyances. The only chance of travelling in peace is to be pro- foundly indifferent to all parties, or to have the protection of one. It may be easily understood why these combina- tions exist where there is a separation in cast and where civil rights are un- equally distributed. They are factitious and grotesque where there is no dis- tinction. Everyman has his vote, and his vote is covered by the ballot. He is entitled equally with his neighbour to the same qualifications, or,, even without them, t...

SYDNEY GOSSIP. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] December 16th. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 19 December 1868

SYDNEY GOSSIP. [FROM OUR OWN COERESPONDEXT.] December 16th. THE presence of Mr. Parkes on the hustings in Wynyard-square, and the active part he took in the proceedings connected with the West Sydney nomination, have by no means tended to diminish his waning popularity. For that it is waning in the estimation of the majority of those whose esteem is worth securing, admits of little doubt. It was thought, to say the least of it, very ques- tionable taste on his part to appear as a po- litical partisan under the peculiar circum- stances in which he stands both in connec- tion with the Government and the country in re his Want of Confidence motion and his unrevealed Kiama Mystery. Notwithstand- ing the great heat, which was almost intense enough to " burn one's eyes out of one's head," and reduce sweltering humanity into grease spots, a very large muster assembled on the Square at an early hour, and towards the end of the proceedings there must have been between three and four thousand...

MELBOURNE MEMS. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] December 12th, 1868. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 19 December 1868

MELBOURNE MEMS. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.]   December 12th,1868. A COMMISSION has been formed to enquire   into the subject of payment of Members. This shows a desire 0n the part of the Gov- ernment that is unexpected and significant.   The question has long been ventilated by fits and starts, but at last we seem to have ap- proached the crisis. The general feeling   seems to be in favour of the movement. The names of the Commissioners are as follows : —Mr. Duffy (chairman) Messrs. Casey, G. V. Smith, Macgregor, McMahon, Kerford, E. Cope, Edward Kingmore, Macpherson, Mackay, and Wrixon. The Government are busily arranging their plan of action of the ensuing Session. Economy seems to be the order of tho day,   Notices have been issued to tho various departments warning them of the proposed re- trenchments. The post of Government Ship- ping Master will be abolished, and the de- partment will be put under the control o...

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. All communications to this journal must be authen-   ticated by the name and address of the writer. No notice will be taken of anonymous communications, and no rejected communications will be returned.   THE VINE DISEASE.   To the Editor of the Wagga Wagga Advertiser. SIR,—I regret very deeply that a report   was made to me last night which appears clearly to establish the existence of the vine disease, " Oidium Tuckerii," in the neighbour- hood of Lake Albert. If the description given in this case of the appearances pre- sented by the vines is to be relied on, there can be little question, I fear, but that this terrible scourge has descended upon us. I am not an alarmist, and I earnestly trust there may be no just grounds for fear in this particular case. If I can possibly do so, I will see the vines referred to, and report to you the result. For some yours in this dis- trict, there has been a peculiar dis...

THE CASE OE MR. RUSSELL. (To the Editor of the W. W. Advertiser.) [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 19 December 1868

THE CASE OE MR. RUSSELL,     (To the Editor of the W. W. Advertiser.) SIR,—On behalf o£ my client Mr. Russell, I take the liberty of making a few remarks upon your report of the proceeding in this case, at the Police Office, 0n Monday last. As there was no reporter of your staff in the Court during the investigation, I presume that the evidence which you published was taken from the written depositions in the Police Office. You have published the evidence against my client in full, and not one word of the cross-examination on his behalf. You, in a very unfair, unjust, and un- christian-like manner, have published to the world every scrap of cvidonco against, my client. Why could you not have exercised a little of that English love of justice which always hears both sides of a question, and   have published the cross-examination as fully as you did the examination in chief, and so let the public form their opinion of the matter themselves ? If y...

ON " OLD CHUM."           To the Editor of the Wagga Wagga Advertiser.   SIR,—As one who suffered severely from the unbridled license and tyranny of the local Press, I appreciate to its fullest extent, the blessings which the establishment of your Journal has conferred upon the district of Wagga Wagga and most cordially subscribe to all that " Old Chum " has advanced eulo- gistic of the Advertiser.

Parliament of New South Wales LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY. TUESDAY, DECEMBER 15. IN the Legislative Assembly, yesterday, [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 19 December 1868

Parliament of New South Wales LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY. TUESDAY, DECEMBER 15. In the Legislative Assembly, yesterday, Mr. ROBERTSON, in answer to a question, said that no provision was made by the   Legislature for secret service money, except in the case of men sent out to apprehend the Clarkes. This money had been paid to Mr, Parkes, and by him paid to the men.   Mr. MACLKAY moved the appointment of a select committee, to inquire into the state ment made by Mr. Parkes at Kiama, relative to an alleged Fenian conspiracy in the colony, He considered the absence of Mr. Parkes from the House and the failure to move the motion standing in his name, showed the necessity for such a motion as this ; especially as he and other hon. members had now been nearly, twelve months without knowing how this matter had come about, or how it had ended. The correspondence which had ap-   peared in the newspaper this morning had shown the public that there had been no ...

MESSRS. GEORGE FORSYTH AND     REPOKT.   FAT CATTLE.—For the mobs offering here   there are no buyers, consequently, owners       are sending their fat stock to market on station account. Consignments of fat     stock to our friends in Melbourne, or Sydney are sure of meeting with attention,   as, from our correspondents' well-known   character and influence in these markets,   stock confided to their care invariably   realise the top prices. Good fat cattle may be quoted—For bullocks, 5/ to 6/ ; and for cows, 4/ to 5/. FAT SHEEP.—William Sinclair, Esq., of Eunonyhareenyah, has sold 2000 fat wethers at 5s per head, a price fully equal to the present state of the market for such stock. At the same time we regret to be compelled to quote the values of both fat and store sheep nominal. We anticipate a change for the bet...

But it is not therefore neces- sary to send for a doctor. A course of Holloway's great cathartic, alterative, and tonic remedy will remove every unpleasant symptom, and imbue both the body and the mind with unwonted energy. Every animal fluid will be purified, every obstruction in the evacuatory channels swept away, every organ regenerated. These, may seem to be   strong statements, but the testimony of the sick of...

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. 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- ...

" This is true liberty, when freeborn men,     Having to advise the public, may speak free."   MILTON.     SATURDAY. DECEMBER 19, 1868. MR. MACI.EAY has been distinguishing himself. He has condescended to do something useful for once. He has found out the " ghost," unravelled the dark mystery of Kiama, and compelled the great conjurer to disclose his gloomy secret. Little faith as we ever had in Mr. PARKES' mystery, we really did think that it was a mystery. We thought there must be something in it, or even Mr. PARKES' ingenuity would never have been able to make so very much out of it. If there was no con- spiracy against the Crown lurking in the back-slums of Sydney, and that there was not we felt tolerably certain, we had a strong suspicion that there was a conspiracy somewhere against the COLO- NIAL SECRETARY. If therewas no band of traitors and murderers plotting deadly devices against distinguished person- ages, ...

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 19 December 1868

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE.       THE MECHANICS' INSTITUTE.—The pro- position to get up a short lecture season for the benefit of this Institution has been very favorably received. We hear that several gentlemen have agreed each to give a lecture, but with the usual modesty of gentlemen unaccustomed as they are &c., there is some difficulty as to who shall have the honor of leading off. A dearth of subjects, too, is complained of, but this is surely a very weak objection. " Old Chum " in our last issue suggested half a dozen, though it is true Mr. Tompson has to-day monopolised one of them and thus forestalled the lecturers. But seriously there should be no difficulty in find- ing something to talk about pleasantly for half an hour, and we can assure the lecturers that if they do come out their brilliancy shall not be wasted on the desert air. In the first place there are all the youth, beauty, and fashion of the town dying to hear them, and in...

A TRIP TO THE MOUNTAINS.   " Away, away to the mountain's brow." " What shall we do in the Christmas holi-   days ?" is a question that has already begun to be discussed in many a circle. Ah, we'll   see what the weather will be, is often the   reply, and when the time comes, the thermo-   meter at 90 or 100 in the shade, anything like physical exertion for is an utter impossibility, picnics and parties fall to the ground, and our long-expected pleasure-trip ends in nothing better than a " bange " in the coolest spot we can find.   Now, within an easy three days journey of Wagga Wagga is a country in all but name a " terra incognita " to most of our weary   citizens-possessing every desideratum for pleasure-trip in summer—a country cool and pleasant, abounding in really shady spots, and cool, nay cold, limpid springs-scenery the mildest and the boldest, from the frowning rocky cliffs and towering snow-capp...
