THE VINE DISEASE—OIDIUM TUCKERII. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 2 January 1869
THE VINE DISEASE-OIDIUM TUCKEEII. This following description of the natural &nbsp; history of the oidium, taken from a French author, was handed by Sir William Mac- arthur to Mr. Joubert (by whom it has been, translated) at the late meeting, of the Agri- cultural Society, and should have been read. It was written some ten years ago, and cer- tainly is the best portrait that has been drawn of the disease Dr. Montague says : " The vine is liable to the attack of the disease at all ages, and at all the various stages of vegetation from the first formation of the bud to the fall of the last leaf. A few successive hot days suffice to show the first symptom of the parasite. A sudden fall in the temperature checks its progress. This may also depend upon many other causes. The various kinds of vines, their age, their strength, mode of culture, etc. ; but in all the characteristics, of the disease are the same. The roots and stems usually show no sign of the disease except in vines w...
BANKERS AND SQUATTERS. (From the Banking Magazine.) [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 2 January 1869
BANKERS AND SQUATTERS. &nbsp; (From the Banking Magazine.) &nbsp; &nbsp; No industry has shown a history more &nbsp; remarkable than the pastoral industry. The land being abundant, sheep prolific, and climate favourable both for the animal and its fleece, induced the settlers to enter into the enterprise, sometimes upon &nbsp; slender capital but more frequently upon &nbsp; borrowed money. It has suited the purpose of banks to encourage this industry as an &nbsp; easy means of employing capital and a fertile source of exchange profit., Stations passed through various owners at huge profits to the sellers, and upon long credit to the &nbsp; buyers. Property, carrying lease of run, &nbsp; formerly worth at the rate of 7s. or 8s. per sheep, has frequently within the last five or six years been increased to the nominal value of 20s. or 25s. per head. Even then it has been argued that the return upon the &nbs...
GENERAL NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 2 January 1869
GENERAL NEWS. BUSH-FIRES.—For some time past bush- fires have been very numerous throughout the district, and much loss of grass and fencing has been the result to the settlers generally. Although there have been appearances of rain for several evenings none has yet fallen. Mr. B. Chapman of Bangalore is said to be a very heavy loser.—Goulburn Herald. DEATH OF MR. JOHN STILES.—The Yass Courier says :-" It is with much regret we have to announce the death of a gentleman who for the long period of twenty-seven years resided in our midst in this town, and who was widely known and greatly respected by the residents of Yass and the surrounding districts. Mr. John Stiles, formerly Clerk of Petty Sessions at Yass, died at Windsor on the morning, of the 23rf instant, in the 57th year of his age. The deceased had been confined to his bed for over a month, and died of heart disease, first induced by a long illness with which he was afflicted whilst in the royal navy on the West Indian station...
PARIS FASHIONS FOR NOVEMBER. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 2 January 1869
PARIS FASHIONS FOR NOVEMBER. LIKE the architecture of the Paris boulevards, the toilettes of the second empire become more ornate ; at each successive change. What with the multiplicity of ruches and lappets with which the robes of the present day are ornamented, it is impossible to divine the precise number of jupes, simulated or other wise, of which those are composed. One thing however, is quite certain, that " robes courtes " are more in favour than ever, and that " robes a queue " are no longer the mode in the smallest degree for " toilets de promenade," which , are usually in velvets, Irish and other poplins, sorgo, and plaids of every description, including well-nigh every possible brilliant combination of colour, so &nbsp; that for the coming season motley literally promises to be tho only wear. Sashes, with large bows behind, but with shorter ends than usual, are as much in favour as ever. &nbsp; Chapeaux, it would seem, will be no less brilliant in appearan...
STOCK REPORT. ADVERTISER Office, Friday Evening. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 2 January 1869
STOCK REPORT. ADVERTISER Office, Friday Evening. The drought still continues. To add to its severity, bush-fires have been raging in the neighbourhood, and we regret to learn that parties identified with this district have been severe sufferers from this cause. The removal of stock to the mountains continues and should we not before long be visited with rain, owners of even the most favoured sta- tions will be compelled to remove a portion of their stock to summer country. Last January we were blessed with some fine rains, and we most sincerely hope that this month will bring the relief we stand so much in need of. Locally, the transactions in stock have been limited, but we are glad to understand that several clips of wool from this neighbourhood have realised prices both profitable and satis- &nbsp; factory to the growers. A very general be- lief exists that squatting prospects are im- proving, that for the present we have seen the worst. At Dubbo the weather during the we...
MESSRS. GEORGE FORSYTH AND Co.'s REPORT. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 2 January 1869
MESSES. GEORGE FORSYTH AND REPORT. &nbsp; &nbsp; FAT CATTLE.—Transactions, in fat cattle have been limited to local' requirements. Prices are well maintained, and we quote bullocks as worth from 5/ to 6/ ; and cows, 4/ to 5/. FAT SHEEP.—No sales to report. Prices un- changed. Good fat wethers may be quoted as worth 5s to 6s, according to quality. STORE SHEEP.—No demand. Prices nominal. STORE CATTLE.—Store cattle are in request, and we have buyers willing to give full market value for good mobs. We have placed several lots under offer and expect to report sales next week, Mixed lots may be quoted, 50s to 60s, and bullocks, 60s to 70s, according to quality. STATIONS. A better feeling obtains as to the value of this description of property. We have had very fair offers for some stations in our hands, which we have declined, and for these stations we are now asking more money. WOOL.—Well got up and clean clips from this neighbourhood have been sold at very fair prices, t...
THE LONDON AND AUSTRALIAN AGENCY, CORPORATION (LIMITED) REPORT: [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 2 January 1869
THE LONDON AND AUSTRALIAN AGENCY, CORPORATION (LIMITED) REPORT : WOOL.—We held our usual weekly sale this day, when we offered a catalogue of 1300 &nbsp; bales of wool, and although our regular day fell upon Christmas, still we had a full attendance of buyers, who competed in the most spirited manner for each of the lots offered. We are inclined to the opinion that the recent English news has had a most appreciable benefit upon prices here, and although we do not report an advance, it must have been apparent that the bid- dings were very free. Our sale for greasy &nbsp; range from 5d per lb. to 10d per lb., the latter price we obtained for the EP clip, about 80 bales ; scoured, at 18d. ; and fleece, 17¾d. We had 18d per Ib. offered for one large clip of 170 bales.
WOOL. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 2 January 1869
WOOL. Of the London Wool Market, Messrs. Willans Overbury and Co., writing on November 6th, advise :- Since the close of the last September sales the colonial wool market has been on the whole quiet, although a moderate amount of business has been done in some descriptions at a slight advance on previous prices. These transactions must be taken to indicate an impression among buyers that wools are cheap, rather than a genuine expansion of demand ; the feature, however, is satisfactory as far as it goes. The general trade of the country remains steady, but not very active, and. until the conclusion of the elections at any rate, no permanent improve- ment can reasonably be looked for. The new arrivals amount in the aggregate to 63,705 bales, as specified below, which, together with the quantity held over, represents a con- siderable weight of wool for disposal during series, which will be fixed next week, and will probably commence on the 23rd or the 26th instant. The arrivals to date...

PRIZE OF ONE HUNDRED GUINEAS FOR THE BEST ESSAY &nbsp; ON THE LAND QUESTION. IT is granted on all sides that the Land &nbsp; 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. &nbsp; 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 mas...
Wagga Wagga Advertiser "This is true liberty, wlien freeborn men, Having to advise the public, may speak free." MILTON. SATURDAY, JANUARY 2, 1869. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 2 January 1869
Wagga Wagga Advertiser " This is true liberty, when freeborn men, Having to advise the public, may speak free." MILTON. &nbsp; &nbsp; SATURDAY. JANUARY 2, 1869. IT is probable that ere long we shall be in the midst of all the pleasing ex- citement of a general election. It is impossible that a House so equally &nbsp; &nbsp; divided against itself as the present Assembly very fortunately happens to be, can stand. Mr. ROBERTSON may be &nbsp; extremely desirous to prove the sincerity &nbsp; of his election speeches and the ability of himself and his colleagues to carry on with advantage the Government of the country ; but patriotic as he is, the honorable gentlemen, opposite to him are equally patriotic, only with this dif- ference, that then patriotism arrives at exactly the opposite conclusion. Ac- &nbsp; cording to their view, Mr. ROBERTSON in office means ruin; just as in Mr. RO- BERTSON'S view, the Opposition-in office would ...

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 2 January 1869
LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. &nbsp; &nbsp; LOST IN THE BUSH.—The unfortunate man James Weir who was reported in our last &nbsp; issue as having been lost in the bush near Narandera, was found by one of the Messrs. Devlin, after a day and nights' exposure, during which time he must have suffered &nbsp; terribly. When discovered he was making &nbsp; towards the river, which, however, in all probability he would never have reached. &nbsp; THE SHOOTING SEASON—A great many shooting parties were organised on Thursday &nbsp; for a grand assault at arms on the game to &nbsp; day (Friday). The different companies went off in the evening to bivouac in the bush, in the vicinity of the various shooting grounds. Since day-dawn the continuous report of the &nbsp; " murderous gun " has spoken loudly of the energy of the sportsmen, and we look anxi- ously for the state of " the bag " this even- ing. The day has been most unfavorable owi...
SYDNEY GOSSIP December 30, 1868. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 2 January 1869
SYDNEY GOSSIP. &nbsp; December1 30, 1868. &nbsp; THAT New South Wales believes in the adage " All work and no play make Jack a dull boy" is invariably and abundantly proved by the avidity with which the com- munity seize upon every opportunity of making holiday, and the zeal and energy they display in making the most of it. Last Boxing-Day was no exception to the rule. I, in common with many others, was under the impression that Christmas would be un- usually dull-this year, owing in part to the " bad times " and in part to the really terrific heat of the weather which on Christmas Eve was literally almost " enough to kill a bul- lock " and certainly sufficient to keep even the most fanatic worshipper of the " phan- tom, pleasure " beneath the shade of his own fig-tree. A change came o'er the spirit of my dream when, on waking on the eventful Saturday morning, I discovered that a clouded sky, and a refreshing breeze had taken the place of the scorching glare and oven...
