ORIGINAL POETRY. A CHRISTMAS CAROL. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 23 December 1868
ORIGINAL POETRY. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; A CHRISTMAS CAROL. A song for the jovial Christmas time Sing cheerily, merrily, while we may ; &nbsp; Let glasses jingle and church-bells chime &nbsp; Merrily out for our Christmas day. &nbsp; We will sing no songs but the songs of mirth, For there's gladness to-day o'er all the earth, Gladness and joy in every clime Under the sun, where Christians pray. &nbsp; Gladness and joy where a girl and boy Were weaving the misletoe far away ; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Gladness and joy where a maiden coy Was coyno more, for a single day ; Ah ! would we were there neath the magic bough— &nbsp; &nbsp; As I know her then, should I find her now ? Alas for all that the years destroy ! I knew her golden, I'd find her—gray. Ah ! think not of it—the skies are blue, And the sun shines fair on our Christmas &nbsp; day— There are heads as golden and hearts as true As ...
REST. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 23 December 1868
REST. Sometimes we feel so spent for want of rest, We have no thought beyond. I know, to- &nbsp; day, When tired of bitter lips and dull delay With faithless words, I cast mine eyes upon The shadows of a distant mountain-crest, And said, " That hill must hide within its breast &nbsp; Some secret glen secluded from the sun ! Oh, mother Nature ! would that I could run Outside to thee, and, like a wearied guest Half blind with lamps and sick of feasting, &nbsp; lay An aching head on thee. Then down the &nbsp; streams The Moon might swim ; and I should feel her grace, While soft winds blew the sorrow from my &nbsp; face &nbsp; &nbsp; So quiet in the fellowship of dreams. HENRY KENDALL. A HAPPY DREAM.—" Happy is the man " says a proverb, " who can tell his dreams ;" and following out the spirit of this saying, Isaak Walton, when he would tell us of the innocence of " a fair and happy milkmaid," adds that she was so pure and clear in...
GAOL DIALOGUES "COOKED" BY PUNCH'S SPECIAL REPORTER AND LAID ON THE TABLE OF THE COUNTRY TO-DAY. (DEC. 19, 1868.) SCENE—Darlinghurst Gaol, March, 1868. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 23 December 1868
GAOL DIALOGUES " COOKED " BY PUNCH"S SPECIAL REPORTER AND &nbsp; LAID ON THE TABLE OF THE COUNTRY TO-DAY. (DEC. 19, 1868.) SCENE—Darlinghurst Gaol, March, 1868. Par.—Is there any consolation or comfort the Government can afford you ? Are you fond of literature ? I wish you had read a small volume of lyrics of which I am the author before you did this dreadful deed. They are very joyous. Are you cheerful ? O'F.—Well—so, so. Par.—When you felt the sun's heat, saw its sparkle on the dancing waves, heard the merry laugh of the great kingfisher, and saw and smelt the many-tinted and perfume-breathing flowers, I wonder you didn't pause ? O'F.—But then I had been sunburnt before, and smelt roses till I was sick of their perfume. And then the great project—the Republic—Polynesia—the one man in all Oceanica—and oh ! the dreadful oath ! the small boy and the big Republic! ' Par.—' Tis very sad ; ' tis tearful. Do you care much about the inconvenience of living ? O'F.—Well—no. I have h...
MISCELLANEOUS EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 23 December 1868
MISCELLANEOUS EXTRACTS. &nbsp; &nbsp; TO MANAGE A REARING HORSE.—When ever you perceive A horse's inclination to rear, separate your reins and prepare for him. The instant he is about to rise, slacken one hand, and bend or twist his head with the other, keeping your hands low. This bend- ing compels him to move a hind leg, and, of necessity brings his fore feet down. Instantly twist him completely round two or three times, which will completely throw him off his guard. The moment you have finished twisting him round, place his head in the direction you wish to proceed, apply the spurs and he will not fail to go forward. If &nbsp; the situation be convenient, press him into a gallop, and apply the spurs and whip two or &nbsp; three times severely. The horse will not, perhaps, be quite satisfied with the defeat, but may feel disposed to try again for the mastery. Should this be the case, you have only to twist him, &c., as before, and you will f...

NAUANDERA. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 23 December 1868
NARANDERA. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] Our monthly Court of Petty Sessions was &nbsp; held here on Thursday last, before the Police Magistrate and T. A. Bronne, Esq., J. P. The charge of Horse-stealing—J. J. Roberts v. T. Giddems—was brought forward and again remanded for the attendance of a witness, resident, I understand, somewhere in the neighbourhood of Mudgee. I wish him a pleasant journey. A Mrs. Davis (a widow) was charged by Senior Constable Foley with Sly Grog Selling—fined £30, or in default of payment, three months imprison- ment, the amount of the fine was eventually &nbsp; collected by her friends and paid. Hilton v. Clark-ellegally impounding—no jurisdic- tion. The dust storm of Tuesday last favored us with an unpleasantly prolonged visit, and &nbsp; much to the regret and disappointment of all &nbsp; was not followed by a shower. The long continued drought is now begining to show its effects, numbers of cattle and horses are &...
ADELONG. [FROM A CORRESPONDENT.] [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 23 December 1868
ADELONG. [FROM A CORRESPONDENT.] &nbsp; &nbsp; THIS little village which not many weeks ago was looking resplendent with grass is now a barren waste. Talk of the ten plagues of of Egypt ! What were they to the plague of caterpillars with which we have been visited, which has desolated the district and turned our best pastures into the dustiest of high ways ! Go where you will, you are sure to meet sheep." They cannot even keep out of the claims. We have been favoured the last two nights with the performance of the Draeger family. The clever band of juveniles drew crowded houses, this little township being ever fore- most in patronising real talent. Our next entertainment will be a lecture from the Mayor of Goulburn on his travels, not as some kind people have said, from Dan to Beersheba, or Goulburn to Adelong, but " all round the world and back again"—an extensive trip which ought to give the tra- velled Mayor plenty to talk about. The Messrs. Foster, who performed ...

No notice will be taken of anonymous communications, and no rejected communications will be returned. To the Editor of the Wagga Wagga Advertiser. SIR,—The dreaded and monstrous chimera, which for so long a period, by a supernatural &nbsp; influence, has paralysed all men's reasoning faculties, socially and politically, has been '' done to death by a murderous blow" ruth- lessly dealt by the stalwart arm of our mo- &nbsp; dern Bellerophon the redoubtable member for the Murrumbidgee, Mr. William Macleay. The Great Dragon lies with his bloody breast and cruel talons prone on the field of Kiama, and the standard of our " Saint George " floats triumphantly above his prostrate body.

Parliament of New South Wales LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY. Wednesday, DECEMBER 16. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 23 December 1868
Parliament of New South Wales LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY. WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 16. Mr. SAMUEL postponed to Wednesday next his motion for going into Committee of Ways and Means, and consequently his financial Statement. Mr. J. SUTTOR moved for a return of the &nbsp; amount of travelling expenses paid to Minis- ters since the establishment of responsible government. Mr. SAMUEL said the Government had no objection to produce the return, but thought Mr. Suttor should have given some reason for asking for it. The return had been partly prepared, but was not yet completed, and he could say in regard to it, that the whole amount received by all the Ministers since responsible government was exceeded by the sum received by one member of the late Ad- ministration. Mr. ROBERTSON did not regard this as the notice of the hon. member who had given no- tice of it. It was in all essentials the motion of Mr. Parkes, who to escape from the re- sponsibility of moving it, had placed it in the hands o...
STOOK, STATION, AND WOOL REPORTS. SYDNEY. MESSRS. MORT AND CO.'S REPORT. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 23 December 1868
STOOK, STATION, AND WOOL REPORTS, SYDNEY. MESSRS. MORT AXD CO.'S REPORT. WOOL continues to come in freely, and although a larger quantity has been offered for sale, the bulk of it having failed to find purchasers has either been held over, or shipped on growers' account. At our sale on Thursday, we had the ordinary attend- ance, and good brands of fleece wool induced brisk, competition, and brought good prices ; but a very large portion of our catalogue, consisting of faulty and low &nbsp; &nbsp; wools, did not elicit biddings equal to our valuations, and it is evident that before we can make sales of such parcels, we shall be compelled to reduce our limit &nbsp; still further. The principal lots in our &nbsp; sale were F&F Bigge, 33 bales fleece at 16d ; Eason, 16 at 15d ; BC over FRH, 35 at 17¼d. Prices current, fleece, fair &nbsp; to good 12s to 17s ; inferior, 8s to 11s ; scoured, no parcels worthy of note cata- logued ; greasy, 3d...

We have said 500 head (Messrs. Christian's) at quotations, and will offer &nbsp; two lots to-morrow. STORE STOCK.—Sheep : there is in demand. Cattle : the continued drought precludes any extensive operations. &nbsp; STATIONS.—No business doing. &nbsp;
MELBOURNE. THE LONDON AND AUSTRALIAN AGENCY CORPORATION (LIMITED) REPORT: [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 23 December 1868
MELBOURNE. THE LONDON AND AUSTRALIAN AGENCY &nbsp; CORPORATION (LIMITED) REPORT : &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; WOOL.—We had a large attendance of buyers &nbsp; at our sale this day, and found the biddings &nbsp; spirited, as at all the recent sales, as the whole of the wools offered were well com- &nbsp; peted for. We have to report sales of greasy up to 9⅜d. per lb. ; scoured, at 16d. per lb. ; fleece, at 17d. per lb. We offered a catalogue of 1501 bales, of which a large portion found purchasers at good rates. &nbsp; &nbsp; The demand for wools is on the increase, and any good lots readily find buyers at high rates.
DALMAHOY CAMPBELL AND Co.'s REPORT. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 23 December 1868
DALMAHOY CAMPBELL AND CO.'S REPORT. FAT CATTLE.—The supply was unusually heavy this week, 640 of which have been sold to-day, two-thirds of them being from &nbsp; good to prime quality, while the remainder were only in middling store condition. 1744 head is the number entered, being very much in excess of requirements during the warm weather, but there was a large attendance of town and country butchers, &nbsp; as well as some buyers for the paddocks &nbsp; near town, and prices advanced quite 10s per head on the best descriptions, while second and inferior qualities were rather lower, than last week. We quote best bullocks from 8/ 10s to 9/ 7s 6d ; second, &nbsp; from 6/ to 7/ 10s ( inferior, from 4/ to 5/ ; best cows, from 6/ 10s to 7/ 17s 6d ; second, from 4/ 10s to 5/ 10s ; inferior, from 3/ up. We have sold 223 head for Mr. J. Rudd, from Urana (the best lot offered in to-day's market), the bullocks at from 4/ 17s 6d to 9/7s 6d, averaging 6/ 17s, ...
ETTZRSHANK, EAGLESTONE, & Co.'s. REPORT. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 23 December 1868
ETTERSHANK, EAGLESTONE, & Co's. REPORT. FAT CATTLE.—The number entered for the &nbsp; week was 1700 head, about 600 of which were sold to-day, a very fair proportion of which were of good to prime qualities, which description found a ready sale at a &nbsp; shade better rates, while prices for mid- &nbsp; &nbsp; dling and inferior qualities receded slightly from last quotations. Prime pens of bul- locks brought from 8/ to 9/ 7s 6d ; second &nbsp; quality ditto, from 6/ 5s, to 7/ 5s ; inferior &nbsp; ???? from 4/ upwards ; cows in proportion. FAT SHEEP.—The number entered was over 30,000, but a few of the lots were held over outside and sold be fore reaching the market, reducing the total supply penned to 25,303, this number following late gluts was very much in excess of buyers' wants, but owing to a large portion being inferior, good to prime lots were moved readily at fully late rates ; for second to inferior lots a slight red...
BALLARAT. MESSRS NORMAN R. MACLEOD AND Co.'s REPORT:— [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 23 December 1868
BALLARAT. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; MESSRS NORMAN R. MACLEOD AND CO.'S REPORT :- FAT CATTLE.—857 were yarded, about 700 of which were butchers' cattle and balance stares. The quality of two-thirds of the fat portion of the supply was of a superior description. Black's, Ware's, and Hyland's in particular, were very prime, and also heavy weights ; the remainder consisted mostly of medium and inferior beef, and were principally from the north. There was a large attendance of the trade, and an active demand for good beef, but the rate per hundred was lower than last week, though quotations and averages are higher on account of greater weight of some of the cattle. Quotations :- Best pens bullocks, prime heavy weights, £9 to £11 15s ; second, good quality, £6 to £8 ; medium &nbsp; and inferior, £4 to £5 10s. Averages :- Ware's bullocks, £9 13s. 5d ; Hyland's bullocks, £9 7s 5d ; N. Black and Co., &nbsp; bullocks, £9 4s. 10 ; cows, £6 15s 7d ; Whitehead'...

PRIZE OF ONE HUNDEED GUINEAS FOR THE BEST ESSAY ON &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; 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. &nbsp; 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, of " 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- sible, and if possible to ev...
Wagga Wagga Advertiser "This is true liberty, when freeborn men, Having to advise the public, may speak free." MILTON, WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 23, 1868. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 23 December 1868
Wagga Wagga Advertiser " This is true liberty, when freeborn men, Having to advise the public, may speak free." &nbsp; MILTON. &nbsp; WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 23, 1868. BEFORE our next issue appears, the Christmas of 1868, will have come and gone. Another milestone will have been passed on the great human high- &nbsp; way—another stage completed in our several life-journeys. There can be no pausing on the path, but there are few of us who can help looking back a little ere we enter, with what heart we may, upon the toils and trials of another. This method of celebrating the great festival of the year is the more natural to us, because there is very little probability of being able to find a better one. With the old hal- lowed and hallowing associations of Christmas, beyond thinking sadly of them, we have here very little to do ; and it is never a wise plan to be super- fluously melancholy. It is little use growing sentimental over remembered misletoes, withered an...
