ETTERSHANK, EAGLESTONE, & Co's. REPORT. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 30 December 1868

ETTERSHANK, EAGLESTONE, & Co's. REPORT. FAT CATTLE.—A moderate supply of 730 head were entered for the week, about 400 head, principally of good to prime quality, met with a ready sale yesterday at about 10s per head advance on late rates, while those offered to-day, being mostly second rate, were sold at a shade lower. Prime pens of bullocks realised from 8/ 10s to 10/ ; second quality do, from 6/ 10s to 7/ 10s ; inferior do, from 4/ to 5/ 10s ; prime pens of cows, from 7/ 10s to 8/ 5s ; second quality do, from 5/ 10s to 6/ 5s ; in- ferior from 3/ upwards. FAT SHEEP.—A. full supply, viz., 24,075, came to hand, and as a much larger portion   than usual were of good to prime quality, the supply of such was much in excess of requirements. Prime lots were moved at satisfactory prices early in the day, but the numbers wanted ware very limited, and at the close of the market a very large num- ber of really good stock had to be turned out unsold. We quote prime qualit...

MELBOURNE. DALMAHOY CAMPBELL AND Co.'S REPORT. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 30 December 1868

MELBOURNE. DALMAHOY CAMPBELL AND Co.'S REPORT. FAT CATTLE.—780 head were entered for the week, all of which, with the exception of one draft from " Yangar," were sold yes- terday,, the majority of them being from good to prime quality. One lot of Mr. M'Kinnon's from the Billabongwere really prime, and commanded a brisk competition for Christmas beef, realizing a slight ad- vance on last quotations, whilst middling qualities sold at about late rates. This day the remainder of the supply was   offered for sale, but owing to the limited attendance of buyers, and the indifferent quality of the cattle offered, they had to be withdrawn from public sale, and were afterwards disposed of at a reduction of about 10s. per head. We quote best bul- locks from 8/ 10s to 10/ ; second, from 6/ to 7/ ; inferior, from 4/ to 5/ ; best cows, from 7/ 10 to 8/ 5s ; second, from 5/ to 6/ ; in- ferior ; from 3/ to 4/ 10s ; and have sold several small lots for Messrs. Chapman, Murphy, and M'Rae...

THE LONDON AND AUSTRALIAN AGENCY CORPORATION (LIMITED) REPORT: [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 30 December 1868

THE LONDON AND AUSTRALIAN AGENCY CORPORATION (LIMITED) REPORT : WOOL.—We had a large attendance or buyers at our sale on Thursday last, and found the biddings Spirited as at all the recent sales, as the whole of the wools offered were well competed for. We have to re- port sales of greasy up to 9⅜d per lb ; scoured at 16d per lb ; fleece at 17d per lb. We offered a catalogue of 1,501 bales, of   which a large portion found purchasers at good rates. The demand for wools is on the increase, and any good lots readily find buyers at high rates.

BALLARAT. MESSRS NORMAN R. MACLEOD AND CO.'S REPORT:— [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 30 December 1868

BALLARAT. MESSRS NORMAN R. MACLEOD AND CO.'S REPORT :- FAT CATTLE.—The number yarded was 448, about half of which were good beef, and the others second and inferior quality. The trade having purchased largely the previous week, the demand was very limi- ted ; a consequent dulness prevaded the market, more particularly towards the close, and prices declined 15s to 20s per head. Quotations :- Best pens bullocks, 7/ 10s to 9/ ; second, 6/ to 7/ ; inferior, from 4/. Averages :- Calvert's bullocks, 7/ 12s 10d ; cows, 8/ 0s 7d ; Nankivell and Cal- vert's cows, 5/ 14s 10d ; Hurton's, bul- locks, 6/ 5s ; cows, 5/ 3s. We sold 55 head, mostly cows ; for Messrs. Nankivell and Calvert, Perron Yallock, at 10/ 12s 6d. FAT SHEEP.—A moderate supply came to hand this week, the number penned being 6,824. We have nevertheless to report an exceedingly dull market, and lower prices for all descriptions except prime quality, which being sparingly supplied met   a ready sale at slightly highe...

THE PASTORAL INTEREST OF AUSTRALASIA. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 30 December 1868

THE PASTORAL INTEREST OF AUS- TRALASIA. FROM official documents of this and the neighbouring colonies, we have compiled the following statement, showing the quantities of live stock at present depastured in Aus- tralasia. Bearing in mind that the first im- portation of stock in any quantity was little more than half a century ago, and that Capt. Macarthur only imported his merinoes about 1808, the statement now published is probably unparalleled. The American system of boast- ing has not happily, been introduced to any great extent to Australia, and we shall there- fore simply point out that the amount of stock is equal to that of some great European nations that have been in existence for a thousand years : and we desire to know whether in California, or in any portion of America, equal progress has been made in any industry. LIVE STOCK RETURNS, TO MARCH 31, 1868. 1867 | Horses | Cattle| Sheep | Pigs New South Wales |28o,201| 1,728,427 |13,909,574 |173,168 Victoria .. .. .. | 130,5...

Advertising [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 30 December 1868

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- sible, and if, possible to evolve from the mass of contradictions that happ...

Wagga Wagga Advertiser "This is true liberty, when freeborn men, Having to advise the public, may speak free." MILTON. WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 30, 1868. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 30 December 1868

Wagga Wagga Advertiser " This is true liberty, when freeborn men, Having to advise the public, may speak free." MILTON. WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 30, 1868. THE Victory of the Government on the   want of confidence motion is so far satisfactory that it gives us a little breathing time. We are not pre- cipitated into a dissolution, as, accord- ing to Mr. WENTWORTH and the " young Australia " school, we once were into a nation, without due preparation for the emergency. The end may not be very far off, but at any rate, it need not take us by surprise. Most people will admit that for any practical pur- pose, the present Parliament is rather worse than useless, but it is quite as well that it should make its exit with at least some show of decency. That it will " die hard " is very probable, and there is, perhaps, little likelihood even of a death-bed repentance, and an edifying, if late, confession of its mani- fold sins and wickednesses. But it is something that the sinner is no...

TELEGRAPHIC INTELLIGENCE. SYDNEY. Herald Office, December 29th, 8.20. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 30 December 1868

TELEGRAPHIC INTELLIGENCE, SYDNEY.   Herald Office, December 29th, 8.20. The Kaikoura arrived with the Panama Mail last night. Three cases of small-pox occurred on board during the passage, and the steamer has been quarantined. The English news was anticipated by the Suez Mail. The Earl of Belmore, accompanied by Mr. Ducane, the new governor of Tasmania, officially visited the Univer- sity to-day. The Government have offered four hundred pounds reward for the capture of Thunderbolt. Trade is stagnant.

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 30 December 1868

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. A CAUTION TO BOY-BATHERS.—A few   evenings since a little fellow named Thomas Jones narrowly escaped drowning. He went into the river to bathe, got out of his depth, and being unable to swim was carried away by the current. He must have perished but for the praiseworthy action of a lad named Thomas Smith, who swam to his assistance, and with difficulty rescued him after he had twice sunk, and when in a state of extreme exhaustion. The indifference of parents in Wagga Wagga to the risks which their child ren incur in bathing in the river, is something remarkable, if nothing more. It is by no means uncommon to see a lot of diminutive urchins disporting themselves in the water within the influence of a current sufficient to sweep them into eternity at once, if they stumbled or fell, and who if they, escaped drowning would be inevitably swallowed by some of our overgrown cod. BUSH FIRES.—Heavy clouds of smoke all round the township have announced the pre...

No notice will be taken of anonymous communications, and no rejected communications will be returned. POST OFFICE MISMANAGEMENT. (To the Editor of the W. W. Advertiser.) SIR.—It is no uncommon thing to hear complaints of blunders being committed in the Wagga Wagga Post Office, of letters being sent in the wrong direction, of non- delivery, and of mis-delivery. A case has just occurred to myself, exhibiting such gross neglect, that I feel it my duty to bring it under your notice, and that of the public. A letter for which I was anxiously waiting three weeks ago, was posted at Melbourne on the 5th December instant. By the post- marks. it appears to have arrived at Albury on the 7th, and at the Office here on the 8th. My residence is thirty miles from Wagga Wagga. After waiting four days in town for the letter, I requested a friend to make ap- plication for it, and...

NARANDERA. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 30 December 1868

NARANDERA. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] I am fortunately enabled to report to you that yesterday (Christmas Day) was delight     fully cool in comparison to the two days pre- ceding, and consequently will (if it so con- tinues) give an opportunity to those favour ably constituted to enjoy themselves. Wed- nesday and Thursday were, I am convinced, by far the most unpleasant days as regards weather I ever endured. Tho (doubtless) kindly intended, and oft repeated salutation, "a merry Christmas to you " appeared to me an awful mockery ; for what mortal could possibly bo merry with tho thermometer 115° in the coolest place to be found, and the hottest wind blowing that I believe ever blew. Luckily Wednesday evening closed with a tremendous dust storm, as usual no rain, but which had the effect of reducing the heat very much, so that Christ- mas morning was ushered in, as I before re- marked, delightfully cool in comparison with the previous days. A report is a...

A WAGGA WAGGA WEDDING. (To the Editor of the W. W. Adverliver.)   SIR.—I was present at a wedding party,   which broke up yesterday, the fatal knot having been tied by the Rev. Mr. Harpur at   Wagga Wagga on Christmas Day. Besides the happy couple and a goodly number of bridesmaids, there were fourteen of the sterner sex including your humble servant present ; and before we dispersed, we con- sumed a hundred and fourteen (114) bottles of grog between us. I am half dead, but you may rely upon this interesting fact being true. I am, yours, JOHN THOMAS., Wagga Wagga, Dec. 27, 1868.

THE GLORIOUS VINTAGE OF CHAMPAGNE! [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 2 January 1869

THE GLORIOUS VINTAGE OF CHAM- PAGNE ! A FEW years ago, "a certain German painter of " still life " acquired a repu- tation by his skill in depicting long taper glasses newly filled with spark ling wine. It was of a delicious golden straw colour, and through it rose a swift little sparkling fountain of bright beady bubbles, rushing upward like a swarm of fairies. There they were, ever gushing up to the creaming sur- face, yet fixed on the instant while darting aloft by the magic skill of the Rhenish painter. It was as good as having a glass of Sillery, to look at   that picture ; two looks . and a biscuit should have been enough for any reasonable person's lunch. The rector of the University of Baauvais, whom the merchants of Rheims crowned with laurel as a proof of their gratitude, sang of champagne as   CUPID'S GIFT. The laughing wine imprison, The wine with the daybreak's gleam, The wine that sparkles and dances ; With a fountain's gushing stream ; The wi...

TABLE TALK. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 2 January 1869

TABLE TALK. ONE of the strongest features of En- glish middle-class civilisation is the fear of death and-consequent excessive care- fullness for human life. It is shown in a variety of ways, but in none more , remarkably than in the denial of men of liberty to risk their own lives. Alpine climbers, steeplechasers, and     adventurers of all sorts, come under the lash of the journals representing the middle classes, unless the risks happen to be run with the ulterior object of making money in one way or other. It is worth noting that no difficulty was made about the Chinese,   Japanese, or New Zealand wars, for here were tangible benefits to be gained by the lookers-on. It was far other- wise with , the Abyssinian campaign,   though the last was called for impera- tively by every feeling of honour and justice. Yet the troops, especially the   officers, were ashamed of the three wars undertaken for the opium traffic, th...

MELBOURNE MEMS. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.]. 26th December, 1868. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 2 January 1869

MELBOURNE MEMS. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.]   26th December, 1868. THIS being Christmas time, we are in the   midst of our usual festivities. Melbourne is in a general state of holiday-making, and business has been suspended for the last two days. I suppose that by the time this reaches you, we shall have returned to our   usual state of every-day life. For my own part, I detest holidays ; they always open with a fallacious brilliance—a vague expecta- tion of happiness, and jollity, and mirth, generally, which is never fulfilled. The day after a holiday is always—to me, at least—as the outside of a Quakers' meeting-house, by moonlight, and I am glad when mankind re- turn to their wallowing in the pecuniary and ordinary business-like mire. Perhaps I am wrong, though, and some people do like holidays—small boys at school, for instance. To them, Christmas means gingerbeer and toffee, pantomime and " tips," whilst to us it signifies Christmas bil...

HAY. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 2 January 1869

HAT. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPOSTDENT.] REPORTS continue to bo received respecting the continued, dryness of the season in the districts of the Lachlan and the Darling. The drought with the attendant disadvantage of surplus stock is ruinous, and injures more or less every branch of business in any way connected with matters pastoral. Dwellers in the towns and cities know little of the crushing difficulties with which the back block Crown tenants of Riverina are at present oppressed. " Out back" is not the place for muffs. It needs men hard of hand and very shrewd of head efficiently to grapple with the exigencies of the situation. They must be content and prepared to undergo the hardest toil, bodily and mental, in the management of their property, coupled in hosts of cases with an entire absence of the least pretence to comfort in living. Hard labour and coarse fare are the lot of the back blockers ; added to which is the almost perpetual annoyance to employers caused by the obstinacy, ...
