LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. THE KELLY GANG IN NEW SOUTH WALES. STICKING-UP OF THE BANK OF NEW SOUTH WALES AT JERILDERIE. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 12 February 1879
LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. THE KELLY GANG IN NEW SOUTH WALES. STICK I NT,- UP OF THE BANK OF NEW SOUTH WALES AT JEUILDERIE. A 'I about half-past 8 ou Monday evening great excitement was cxjicrienccd in Wagga by the intelligence that the Kelly gang had made their appearance in Jerilderie, and had bailed up the whole towiiBhip. The intelligence was partly discredited at first, as it was thought unlikely that the bush rangers would quit their apparently securc quarters in the Strathbogic ranges. In ad dition to this, it was cousidered not im probable that others might trade upou the notoriety ot the gang, anil thus endeavour to levy black-mail. Tlie earliest information received was necessarily of the barest possible character. The first operation had been the cutting of the telegraph wires, aud this was followed up by the imprisonment of the telegraph master in his own office, uuder the surveillance of Byrnes. It would appear that at about niiduight on Saturday an enquiry was made at the Jer...

THE MUNICIPAL ELECTION. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 12 February 1879
THE .MUNICIPAL ELECTION. Till! Municipal election for East Ward took place yesterday, and the ploccediugs were as dull and uninteresting as they usually are. The retirement of the other candidates left Aid. Nixon in possession of the field for South Ward, and in North Ward there was previously; a walk-over for Aid. Bruce. There was but limited publicity giveu to the contest, but the electors of East Ward were ap parently aware of it, although the greaterpart of the town was in complete ignorance that anything of the sort was coing on. The poll was taken at the Court-house, the Mayor acting as returning-oflicer, and Mr. F. Tompsou, junior, as poll-clerk. A waggonette was employed throughout the day bringing electors to the poll, and a coinparativcly large number of votes were recorded. Shortly after four o'clock the poll was declared, and it was found that Aldennau Evans, the re- j turning alderman, had secured a large majority over his opponent, Mr. J. Walsh, the numbers being as fo...

THE GUMLY COMMON. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 15 February 1879
THE GUMLY COMMON. Mil. M'ElHone moved the adjournment of the House to call attention to a great wrong which had been done to the people of Wagga Wagga bv the Minister for Lauds (Mr. Hoskins), and his predecessor (Mr. Farnell).

THE BIRTH OF THE MARSU PIAL YOUNG. Tin: following letter appears in the Queciit-hvidn- : — '' Sir, — Thousands of marsupials have been killed upon this station, and great numbers have been carefully examined in order to solve the questions as to how the young ones are born, and how they become attached to the teats of the mothers. Until a short time back nothing definite was arrived at, except ing that the scientific idea' — of the doe manipulating its young and placing it upon the teat — seemed to be impossible, for the young animal was frequently found not bigger than a large-sized pea, firmly attached to the teat, and in such .an embrvotic state that it even did not appear to have a mouth. How could a kangaroo, even if furnished with deli cate fingers, handle it at all ? ' 1 have long had the idea that the teat (which is longer than one would sujipo.se necessary for the use of the young animal) was a 'Fallopian tube, :: and that the embryo coming down it, from the source of gener...
