Magga Magga Advertiser "This is true liberty, when freeborn men, Having to advise the public, may speak free." MILTON. SATURDAY, DECEMBER 20, 1868. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 26 December 1868

Wagga Wagga Advertiser " This is true liberty, when freeborn men, Having to advise the public, may speak free." MILTON. SATURDAY, DECEMBER 20, 1868. IF the hungry millions of the old   world are much longer compelled to regard roast beef as a rarity and mutton as a myth, it need not be from any lack of either of those desirable commodities. To us, surfeited with both, it may seem strange that there should be people anywhere to whom a meat dinner is an event, to be remembered at least for a week— whose knowledge of chops is entirely second-hand, and who, probably, never in their lives rejoiced in any finer feast than a pork-pie or an indifferent sausage. We can hardly realize the fact, that amongst the possibilities of English or European life, starvation still holds a place ; that there are countries where men and women still toil, working wearily on from week's end to week's end, not to live, but to die. Unhappily, it by no means follows that because we have plenty we ...

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 26 December 1868

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE.   TRAVELLING SHEEP.—The following sheep have passed during the week :- 21,000, Mr. Linnet's, Cowl Cowl, Lachlan. These sheep have turned back again. 1900 fat wethers, Mr. Jenkins's. Buckinbong, for the Sydney market. 10,000, Mr. Baker's, from Mumble- dock to Tumberumba. 24,000 ewes, Mr. Alfred Weir's, from Wingre Maneroo, from Coonong station. THE DRAEGER FAMILY.—We remind our readers that to-night will probably be the only opportunity of hearing those really talented little people. The family proceed on Monday to Albury, to give a concert there on New Year's Day. ACCIDENT.—On Thursday morning a man named Craig, in the employment of Or. Forsyth and Co., met with a painful accident. He was attending to the chaff-cutting machine, and got his foot entangled in the machinery. Happily the machine was stopped before much serious injury was done. No bones were broken, but the foot was much sprained and bruised. ARSON.—A reward of twenty-five pounds is offer...

HAY. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 26 December 1868

HAY.   [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] THE deplorable dry state of the district be- tween this and the Darling River, as reported by the numerous travellers thence, and by private letters, is discouraging in the extreme to everybody in any way connected with that remote country, and no signs of any imme- diate beneficial change are apparent. The difficulties of the position to the settlers are crushing even to Herculean workers; since the scarcity of feed and water, the enormous expenses for carriage of goods, the reduced value of wool, and the long and weary struggle involved in getting it down to port for ship- ment, task almost superhuman energy for the accomplishment of the end. Some must inevitably succumb. Riverina and the Dar- ling River people, once the pride and hope of Melbourne capitalists, are now viewed askance by those commercial magnates. That indefatigable and deserving officer, Mr. Sub-Inspector Creaghe, who is in charge of the police here, has lately ret...

SYDNEY GOSSIP. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] December 23, 1863. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 26 December 1868

SYDNEY GOSSIP. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] December 23, 1868. The signs of the approaching festival are numerous in our streets, though, perhaps, not to such, an extent as heretofore, and our bustling, sweltering Christmas season, with its joys and sorrows, is again near at hand. The pressure of all kinds of business in a week, out of which two holidays are to be taken, and the presumption that you, too, will be full of early " copy," are my excuses for a briefer communication than usual. The Want of Confidence debate drags its   slow length along, but you will receive by telegram its result in all probability before this reaches you. The great speech of the discussion was Forster's. It was wretchedly reported in both the dailies, though the Empire's version is the more accurate. He spoke for four hours and a-half—from half- past 8 on Friday evening till 1 o'clock on Saturday morning—and sat down amid cheers as ringing as those which greeted his rising, Alluding to Wi...

MELBOURNE MEMS. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDEST.] December 19th. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 26 December 1868

MELBOURNE MEMS. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDEST.] December 19th.   IN a book I once saw, called " The Curiosities of Invention," mention is made of an inge- nious device for the saving of space by corres- pondents. The letter was to be written upon thin sheets of gutta-percha stretched to their utmost. The writer having finished his epistle, released the pins which fastened the paper and the sheet flew back to its original size, thus becoming convenient and illegible. This idea—so delightfully impracticable and so exquisitely absurd-must have emanated from the wearied brain of some unhappy newspaper correspondent, who found himself obliged to compress into one column of type the " startling " occurrences which had been chronicled in all the glory of reporters' English in the daily journals. Unfortunately for my simile, however, the past week in Melbourne has been singularly barren of interest. So many things are about to take place, and so few have actually happened, that i...

Parliament of New South Wales LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY. TUESDAY, DECEMBER 22, 1868. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 26 December 1868

Parliament of New South. Wales LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY. TUESDAY, DECEMBER 22, 1868. Mr. ISAACS resumed the adjourned debate on the want of confidence motion. He de- fended the Ministry of which he had been a member, and complaining bitterly that Mr. Forster had charged the preceding Government with being plunderers of the public purse, delivered violent philippic   against that gentleman. Mr. LUCAS told the House that from this time forward be would never again support any Government or party, because during the last three years, during which he had been induced to be a partisan, he had seem more hypocrisy, deceit, and dishonourable dealings than he had ever witessed before. Mr. PARKES or rising to reply, was re- ceived with loud cheers. He thought that a stranger to the house would imagine, instead of a vote of censure on the Government, that this was a vote of censure moved by the Government against the member for Kiama. Alluding to the abuse which had been heaped upon h...

TO A GIRL OF THE PERIOD. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 30 December 1868

TO A GIRL OF THE PERIOD. THE rose's hue is on thy cheek, Thine eyes like stars are bright, And ebon lashes, upward curled, Add to their sparkling light.   Thy flowing locks in shiny wavos . Look like a gift of Fairy ;   In colour like Australian gold, Or highly bred canary ! I do not ask to kiss that cheek, Lest I should spoil its colour ; A yellow tress I dare not seek— The gold would soon grow duller.   I dare not let those orbs divine Ensnare my tranced soul, Lest the bright flames that in them shine   Die out, for lack of—Kohl. " Tis false," you say, " I use no Kohl," Granted, but on my honour, I little reck if their false flame   Be Kohl—or Belladonna, — Once a Week

SELECT POETRY. AMO. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 30 December 1868

SELECT POETRY. AMO. When he told me that he loved me, ' Twas the flowery time of May, I put roses in my ringlets, And wont singing all the day When he told me that he loved me, In the pleasant month of May ! Still, he told me that he loved me   In the summer-time of June ; When the roses blushed the redder, And the birds were all in tune— And I blushed (because he loved me) Redder than the rose of June ! Yes ! because I knew he loved me, I went singing with the birds, All the day I listened to him— All the night I heard his words, Dreaming nightly that he loved me, I was blither than the birds ; But—I didn't know I loved him ! Till I found one summer day, That, in saying how he loved me, He had wiled my heart away—   Only saying how he loved me   Through the long bright summer, day ! Still, he told me that he loved me, When the roses fading fell ;   And the birds had all forgotten   That sweet tune I've learned too wel...

TABLE TALK (From Once a Week.) [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 30 December 1868

TABLE TALK (From Once a Week.) WHAT do my lords and the gentlemen of the House of Commons think of a vote recording scheme, an apparatus that will enable them to register their ayes or their noes without rising from their seats ? The Assembly Chamber at Albany is fitted with such an ac- cessory, it appears. Two dials are set up in the house, one for the yeas, and the other for the noes, and each dial has a suite of numbers upon it corres- ponding to the numbers of the members' seats. Each seat has a pair of handles, like bell-pulls—one for, the other   against—communicating with the re- spective dials. When the member       pulls either of these, his number on the desired dial makes a motion to show that his vote has been registered, while at the samo time, his figures are stamped upon a strip of paper for the use of the tellers. All the members can vote at once, and the tale of votes recorded on each side can be read off in a minu...

NEWS BY THE MAIL. GENERAL SUMMARY. (From the Home News.) [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 30 December 1868

NEWS. BY THE MAIL.   GENERAL SUMMARY. (From the Home News.)   THE Church of England has lost its spiritual head. The venerated Arch-   bishop of Canterbury, Dr. Longley,   died somewhat unexpectedly towards the end of last month. He was a man of eminent piety, gentleness, and dig- nity, and though too tolerant by nature to interfere vigorously to allay the quarrels in the Church, he administered her affairs with some firmness, and to   the admiration of most of her members,   It is to be regretted that towards the close of his career his Grace inclined too much to favour the South African High Churchmen, in the Natal affair, but the error arose from Dr. Longley's   conscientious conviction that rational- ism was becoming too prevalent, and that it was necessary to mark the Church's displeasure with its most able advocate. Few, indeed, are the mis- takes which can be laid to the charge of the a...

GENERAL NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 30 December 1868

GENERAL NEWS. WE have no satisfactory evidence of the   appearance of the oidium or the vine disease on the Upper Murray. Something resembling it has been discovered in one or two vineyards in low and damp situations, but in general the climate of the district is unfavourable to the growth of parasitic fungi. For the last six or seven years the Sweetwater, the Mus- cat of Alexandria. the Black Princo, and one or two other varieties of table grape have been subject to a disease presenting some of the symptoms of oidium, such as the dark purple patches upon the wood and upon the berries, and the imperfect, impregnation causing the flowers to die away in the form   of a brown powder. But so far as we have ascertained, this malady has not attacked   the varieties of grape used for wine-making. In all young vineyards it is a common phe- nomenon to see a proportion of the bunches die off in the form of dust, but this is gener- ally attributed to the ...

STOCK, STATION, AND WOOL. REPORTS. SYDNEY. BREWSTER AND TREBECK'S REPORT:— [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 30 December 1868

STOCK, STATION, AND WOOL. REPORTS,       SYDNEY. BREWSTER AND TREBECK'S REPORT :- STATIONS. —The continued dry season is acting most prejudicially for the interest of squatters. Advices from almost every part of the interior furnish most gloomy accounts of the condition of many stations, the losses of stock are reported to be very heavy, and unless there is an early fall of rain, holders of station properties will lose a considerable portion of their flocks and herds. In such a state of things, it is not to be wondered at that intending purchasers fight shy of entertaining proposals to pur- chase. STORE CATTLE.—We have buyers for well- bred lots of store cattle, suitable for fatten- ing, but they are confined to those who have fenced-in lands, and who have adopted means for securing Water. The high price of beef as ruling just now, owing to the drought, will, we trust, induce many of our friends to adopt means for artificially storing water, by...

HOME NEWS. (From the English Papers. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 30 December 1868

HOME NEWS. (From the English Papers. THIS week Queen Isabella is expected in Paris, She has taken two houses, communi- cating with each other, in the Champs Elysées, finely situated near the handsome residence built by her mother Maria Chris- tina. They have not, however, been occupied for a long time and are in want of repair. Furniture to the amount of 400,000 francs (£16,000) has been ordered, but the Queen will not instal herself in her new residence before the middle of December. She will in the meantime take up her residence in the Pavilion Rohan, Rue de Rivoli, opposite the Palace of the Tuileries. It is said that the Prince of the Asturias is to be sent for his education to the Lycée Bonaparte, in the Rue Caumartin. The Queen is described as much depressed in spirits, and apparently cherishing little hope of ever again returning to Spain as its sovereign, but full of confi- dence that at some day, perhaps not distant, her son will be called back to the throne. Victor Hugo ha...

GOLDSBROUGH, BURT, & Co.'s. REPORT. FAT CATTLE. -The supply barely equal to the demand, and for prime Christmas beef high rates were obtained. One small lot from the Clarence, certainly the best lot offered to the Sydney trade for years, realised 9/ 10s per head. We quote good bullocks from 6/ to 7/ 10s ; second do, 5/ to 6/ ; extra quality, fully 27s 6d per 100 lbs. FAT SHEEP.—This market is much easier this week, and particularly for inferior stock which is almost unsaleable. We cannot quote best wedders above 9s : second do, from 6s to 7s. Our sales this week have been 750 wedders, Messrs. Christian's, from 9s 3d to 9s 9d ; Harley's do, 216 at 5s ; 300 stores at 3s. STORE STOCK.—Nothing doing.   STATIONS.—We offered a fine property on the Lachlan, but had to withdraw. Several properties have been offered of Late ; but so far, we have not heard of any closing sales WOOL.—We held our first sale on Tuesday at our Warehouse, Hunter-street, when we submitted a sma...
