TELEGRAPHIC INTELLIGENCE. SYDNEY. Herald Office. December 22. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 23 December 1868

TELEGRAPHIC INTELLIGENCE. SYDNEY.   Herald Offce,   December 22. THE English mail is at Melbourne.   Mr. Ducane, the new Governor of Tasmania, spends Christmas here. The Customs revenue for last month, shows a small increase. The Government expect a majority of four on the want of confidence mo- tion, but an immediate dissolution is certain in any case.   Tenders for the erection of Wagga     Wagga Wharf were called for to-day. Captain McLerie was examined to- day before the Select Committee. His evidence negatives, the supposition of any Fenian conspiracy, ever existing   here. Captain McLerie states that   his report which Parkes produced, was written months after the Prince was   shot.       The Bank of England has raised the rate of discount to two and a half per   cent.     General Gran...

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 23 December 1868

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. ' THE WAGGA WAGGA WHARF.—A private telegram from our local Member Mr. Macleay, informs us that tenders were called for yesterday, for the construction of the wharf at this town. We congratulate the town and the district on having obtained at last this long-promised, long-delayed requirement in spite of the apathy, or rather opposition, of a certain section of the local public. COURT OF REQUESTS.—The adjourned case of Edward Lloyd v. Edward Mitchell, claim,   £3 15s., was called on Tuesday last, but in   the absence of witnesses, was further adjourned to the January sittings.

TABLE TALK. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 23 December 1868

TABLE TALK. CHRISTMAS in Wagga Wagga ! Well, there are some odd concatenations of ideas to be met with occasionally knocking about the   world—beauty and brains for instance, rare but precious, and when found well   worthy of being made a wife of,—fair but foul, a much commoner combination, and like the store sheep of the period, not to be taken as a gift ; but I really think that Christmas in Wagga, (excuse me, but I ob- ject to the double word this hot weather,) for sheer bewildering dislocation of all pre- conceived ideas upon either subject, beats them both. You see one believes in beauty rather, and one decidedly believes in brains, but the difficulty is, as with. bread and but ter at a cheap boarding-house, to get them together in anything like fair or even reason- able proportion.. The most beautiful woman I ever saw, to parody a well-known line, used to look like an angel, and talked like a doll, or as a doll would talk if, like my fair friend, she ...

ORIGINAL POETRY. A LOVER'S LAMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 26 December 1868

ORIGINAL POETRY. A LOVER'S LAMENT.   " Absence makes the heart grow fonder,     And when far from thee I wander, Sweetly on the past I'll ponder,     Ever dream and think of thee !" So she said : I wept and kissed her ; Who could dream it was a twister ? Who could think she'd marry Mr. Blobbs, and make a fool of me.     Sadly now I wear the willow, Nightly wetting all my pillow . > With my bitter tears, until, Oh     Dear ! how cold and damp it grows ;   While around, my bosom wringing,       All my tenderest feelings stinging,     Cruel, keen mosquitoes singing,         Aggravate a lover's woes.   Never more I'll eat my dinner, Thin I'll grow and ever thinner, Since, alas ! I've failed to win her, Death alone my bride shall...

THE WISHING GATE. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 26 December 1868

THE WISHING GATE. ' Twas on a clear bright autumn day That cousin John and I Strolled in the little winding paths That through the meadows lie ; And far above the wild birds broke the mountain's solemn hush,   And close beside, but out of sight, we heard the river rush. John was silent, and so was I,   Never a word we spake,       Till, with a smile and half a sigh,     He on the silence brake, Saying, " We're near the ' Wishing-Gate,' and we must linger there ; For truth in this quaint fancy hides—a wish may be a prayer." We stood there, cousin John and I, Beneath the fading trees,     A sound of singing, sweet and fresh, Came to us on the breeze : ' Twas but some little children by the river- side at play,   But it seemed a gate in heaven had closed when it had passed away. I know what wish was in my heart, God only knows beside !   And wha...

BABY'S GONE. Toys neglected—food refused—eyes heavy—cheeks flushed—a much loved dolly thrown carelessly aside—a golden head rested wearily on a mother's lap —a vague fear in a mother's heart—a doctor sent for—BABY'S SICK. A little fever-devoured form tossing restlessly about on a tiny bed—bright curls streaming over a white' pillow— broken baby words escaping from un- conscious baby lips—days of tender nursing—long nights of tearful watch ing by a mother who never wearies —soft treading footsteps—muffled knocker — shaded lights — dreadful fears—BABY'S WORSE. More doctors summoned—a consul- tation held—grave faces—the worst feared—frenzied parents—imploring prayers sent up to Heaven to save— prayers unanswered—all hope over—a last kiss taken—a sharp cry of agony from a bereaved mother—a deep groan from a childless father's heart—a white sheet drawn reverently over a still wee form—the worst has happened —BABY'S DEAD.

ON A CERTAIN CURIOUS CUSTOM. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 26 December 1868

ON A CERTAIN CURIOUS CUSTOM. ETHNOLOGISTS have found much signi- ficance in the fact that traditions, habits, and customs of a precisely similar kind are found among savage peoples ap- parently widely sundered by geogra- phical distribution and differences of race. Few of those customs are more singular than that which enacts that a man shall never look upon the face of   his mother-in-law after he is once mar- ried. As this custom obtains among   the Caffres of South Africa, among several of the Australian tribes, and among many of the Polynesians, it is assumed that these various races of men are derived from a general stock. We prefer to look upon this custom, how- ever, as testimony to the existence of a natural law—as a piece of wisdom indigenous to each of these countries and the direct growth of individual experience. In England the satire of mothers-in-law has long been ranked among polite accomplishments ; and young gentlemen who never had a mother...

FRENCH COOKING. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 26 December 1868

FRENCH COOKING. FRENCH cooking, historically con- sidered, recals some pleasant scenes to every one who has ever crossed the Channel. There is something very sociable and pleasant in the way in which a French bourgeois family pre- pares for a meal. I see one before me now. The English of the same class too often sit down in a sullen, stolid, revengeful way, preserving a dead silence, and apparently sworn to begin the attack at the same moment. They really do manage these things better in France. The good bonhomme tucks his napkin in his top button-hole, his smiling wife adjusts the serviette round the neck of her favourite Madelaine, the youngest ; the bread is made a matter of great study. After the soup is gone, the wholesome but not ine- briating Medoc is turned impartially into the glasses. The slices of veal pass round, and are selected with dis- crimination, yet without selfishness. Last of all, comes the little dessert, that fitting finale for a light and diges- tible dinner....

ENGLISH NEWS. (From the Herald's Telegram.) [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 26 December 1868

ENGLISH NEWS.   (From the Herald's Telegram.)   The Galatea, under the command of the Duke of Edinburgh, started last Friday from Plymouth, on her Indian and Australian voyage, but owing to an accident the ship had to return, and was docked, which will delay her de- parture a few days. It is intended to call at Madeira and the Cape at the end of December; Western Australia, end of January ; Adelaide, Melbourne, and Sydney, in February ; Wellington and Auckland in March; and at the end of May she will sail for Yokahama, and return by Hongkong, Manila, Singapore, Penang, and Calcutta, about the end of October ; thence, via Salle and Mauritius, to the Cape, in April, 1870 ; and is expected home about July, 1870, after a voyage of 39,000 miles. A damaging exposure of secret affairs has taken place with reference to the Royal Bank of Liverpool and East India. The wool sales at Liverpool were largely attended. A company is projected to bring live cattle in large ...

COMMERCIAL. The colonial loans have been launched. South Australia for £400,000, for which subscriptions have been lodged to the amount of two millions and a half ; the average price is 107. And the New South Wales loan of one mil- lion, at the average price of 98¾. The aggregate tenders amounted to £3,659,400. The forthcoming Vic- torian loan will be well received. Those applications to our money market provoked a discussion on colo- nial finance, especially in relation to New Zealand and South Australia, but without damaging Australian credit generally.

THE LATE MRS. MATTHEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 26 December 1868

THE LATE MRS. MATTHEWS. IN October last, Mrs. Matthews, who kept   an hotel at Burrowar, proceeded by mail from that town to Goulburn, on business. On her return, she took the Gundagai coach at Yass, and about half-a-mile from Bogolong left it, it was supposed, for a few minutes. She had not since been heard of until her remains were found in the bed of the Milora water- shed. Information was sent to the police on Thursday, and under the instructions of Mr. sub-inspector Brennan, mounted constables Hayes and Smith were dispatched to the place where there was the body of a female, within two hundred yards of which were the clothes similar to those worn by Mrs. Mat- thews when last seen. The remains were brought into Yass for the purpose of holding an inquest, and although the jury, as it will be seen, did not arrive at a positive conclu- sion that they were those of Mrs. Matthews there appeared to be no doubt in their minds that they wore such. The inquest was held on Mo...

STOCK REPORT. ADVERTISER Office. Friday Evening. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 26 December 1868

STOCK REPORT       ADVERTISER Office. Friday Evening. By telegram we have received the gratifying intelligence that, wool has advanced a penny   per pound in the London market. This we hail with satisfaction, and hope, it is only the forerunner of a still farther advance in the value of this staple, The effect of this ad- vance cannot but be felt in our own markets, and will, no doubt, tend to make holders ask higher prices for wool, and put our squatters, now suffering from drought, in better spirits. The dryness of the weather still continues, and thousands of sheep are passing our doors, some to summer quarters, and some on the " catepillaring" dodge, all wending their way to the mountains, where the grass is green and plentiful, and water abundant. Yesterday we mere threatened with that which we so much need—a storm of rain ; but un- fortunately it has passed away, and we have only to he thankful for a cooler atmosphere. &a...

PRIZE OF   ONE HUNDEED GUINEAS FOR THE BEST ESSAY ON THE LAND QUESTION. IT is granted on all sides that the Land Law requires amendment : tho 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- sible, and if possible to evolve from the mass of contradictions that happy...
