WAGGA WAGGA BRIDGE COMPANY. THE half-yearly meeting of the Wagga Wagga Bridge Company, was held yester- day at the Court House, G-. Forsyth, Esq. in the chair. The following half-yearly report was read by the Chairman. Report of the Directors of the Wagga Wagga Bridge, Company for the half-year ending December 31, 1868. " The Directors, in offering their half- yearly statement to the Shareholders of the Company, have to report a falling off in the receipts compared with the previous corres- ponding half-year of 1867, notwithstanding which, they have to congratulate the share holders that in the continued depression of the pastoral interests, and the low level of the river enabling parties to ford in all directions, the receipts have reached the sum of £1047 2s. 2d., compared with £1174 4s. 2d. from the previous half-year. Taking into consideration the depreciation in the value of sheep, your directors deemed it ad- visable to reduce the rate of tolls on that description of stock, gr...

POLICE COURT. TUESDAY, DECEMBER 22, 1868. (Before the Police Magistrate and Messrs. Cochrane, Mair, aud Tompson, J.P.) [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 6 January 1869

POLICE COURT. TUESDAY, DECEMBER 22, 1868.         (Before the Police Magistrate and. Messrs. Cochrane, Mair, and Tompson, J.P.)     THOMAS BEVERIDGE v. RALPH COOT.— ABSENTING FROM HIRED SERVICE.—The offence was clearly proved. The defendant, was shown to be £8 5s. 9d. in debt and as complainant refused to receive him again into his service (under a proposed compromise) to work the debt out, the Bench fined defend- ant £2 or 14 days to gaol, a most absurd punishment for such an offence, but the ut- most the Act allows. ROBERT IRVING v. THOMAS BAKER.— RECOVERY UNDER THE TENEMENT ACT.— Mr. Willans for plaintiff. It was not shown that there was any holding against the will of complainant. There had been an agreement under which the land was to be worked by defendant on terms, the complainant (the proprietor) and defendant dividing produce. Evidence went to prove that defendant was entitled to hold until the cr...

A SONG FOR THE SEASON. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 6 January 1869

A SONG FOR THE SEASON.               WE smoke, we drink, we sleep,   We loll and lie ;         Awake we scarce can keep,   We're very dry.         Ah ! why should dull hours creep   So slowly by ? Why doth the summer bring   Those horrid flies ? Why can't a fellow fling     Off shirts and ties ?             Why do mosquitoes sting ? A Confound their eyes !       We toil thro' heat and dust,         We fiz and fry, Until we think we must     Most surely die.       Ah ! who would end as ...

SELECT POETRY. THE UNBOLTED DOOR. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 9 January 1869

SELECT POETRY.     THE UNBOLTED DOOR. An aged widow sat alone Beside her narrow hearth ; Her silent cottage never heard The ringing laugh of mirth. Six children once had sported there, but now the churchyard snow Fell softly on five little graves that were not long ago. She mourned them all with patient love, But since her eyes had shed Far bitterer tears than those which dewed The faces of the dead. The child which had been spared to her, her darling and her pride, The woeful mother lived to wish that she had also died !   Those little ones beneath the snow, Not lost, but gone before ; Faith taught her all was well with them, And then the pang was o'er ; But when she thought where Katie was, she saw the city's glare. The painted mask of bitter joy which Need gives Sin to wear. Without the snow was thick and white, No step had fallen there ; Within she sat beside her fire, Each thought a silent prayer, When suddenly, behind her seat, unwonted n...

A TALE OF LOVE. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 9 January 1869

A TALE OF LOVE.   Two maids were walking in the grove (They both, were growing old),   The one to tell a tale of love, They other to be told. " He is not rich," the elder said, Nor handsome, nor high-born ; The man whom I propose to wed Most other girls would scorn."   " What is he then ? you make me fear ;" The maiden's tears fell fast : " He was the first to offer, dear, And he may be the last!" A YOUNG man generally gives a lock   of his hair to his sweetheart before he marries her. After marriage she some- times helps herself—and dosen't use scissors either. A MAN passing through a gateway in the dark, hit his nose against a post. " I wish the post was at the——." " Better wish it somewhere else," said a bystander, " you might run against it again." " Much remains unsung," as the tom-cat remarked to the brick-bat, when it abruptly cut short his serenade. IT is said that when a Russian hus- band neglects to beat his wife for a mo...

SYDNEY GOSSIP. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 9 January 1869

SYDNEY GOSSIP. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.]   SUFFERING from accès de nerfs, dyspepsia, or some other incomprehensible disorganisa- tion of the system, after a sleepless night, I was tumbling and tossing about in bed during the small hours on last Tuesday morning in a vain attempt to woo the drowsy god, who, however, like the Irish boy, " wouldn't come the more I called him.'' At length, as a dernier ressort, I tried to fix my mind on something that might ultimately weary me into a doze, and actually endea- voured to repeat the names of the whole seventy-two members of the Assembly in alphabetical order. This, however, after several breaks-down, had a precisely con- trary effect, and drove my brain into a state of confusion worse confounded, and I was seriously thinking of getting rid of this incubus of my own creation by an early   walk, and a plunge in the " briny " when the startling and unmistakeable clangor of the fire bell sounded on my ear. For a mo...

MELBOURNE MEMS. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] January, 3, 1869. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 9 January 1869

MELBOURNE MEMS. [FROM OUR OWN CORROSPONDENT.] January, 3, 1869. We are suffering a recovery. Indigestion is at present the prevailing feature of social economy. The Christmas festivities are over, and we have all inaugurated the New Year with appropriate libations. The town has been turned out of windows during the last week. It is a remarkable fact, and one   which seems to have been specially intended for the benefit of publicans, that Christmas, New Year's Day, and the race meeting should all take place one after the other. Scarcely have we recovered from the effects of Christmas plum-pudding, whon tho task of seeing the old year out and the new year in devolves upon us with inebriating regu- larity, and the very morning of this social raid upon our gastric juices, behold the races ! It is fortunate that we cannot have a New Year's Day more than once in twelve months. For my own part, I have dined and supped,     and lunched, and eaten and d...

NARANDERA. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 9 January 1869

NARANDERA. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] THE holidays are over, and most people are suffering a recovery. We have had no less   than three race meetings down here during the week, so that, at least, as regards the number, you will admit we must be quite a sporting community ; as regards the quality of the sport, I had, perhaps, better say nothing. A proposition was made that another Turf Club should be formed, and   (as was the case some two years since) a respectable and tempting programme placed before the public. I will not yet speculate upon the chances of the same being carried out, but I am sure that all that is wanted is unity amongst the working committee. As regards the money, it is, notwithstanding the dry season, easily raised. Anothor unfortunate has, as nearly as possible, sacrificed his life to tho pleasures of the bottle, or rather keg. His name is, I hear, Clutterbuck, who after a few days, spree at one of the very numerous country road-side...

HAY. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 9 January 1869

HAY. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.]   No NEWS of rain having fallen over the Dar- ling country inspires us with fresh appre- hensions as to the deplorable condition of the district. Many sheep have been turned adrift and are wandering shepherdless, and in a wretched state across the arid plains. The rising dust becomes incorporated with the fleece, and destroys the fibre of the wool. To such an extent does this obtain that we have seen a dirty, dusty fleece removed from a sheep's back which, when weighed, drew the scale at 25lbs, No amount of washing could altogether remedy this. Should no rain fall within the next three months, it is not hard to predict the fate which awaits the capital so lavishly invested heretofore in a country which can only yield a successful re- turn under certain conditions, that is to say when the seasons are more than favourable,   and prices are something considerably higher than have been ruling lately, whether it be for fleece o...

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. All communications to this journal must be authen-   ticated by the name and address of the writer. No notice will be taken of anonymous communications, and no rejected communications will be returned. THE LAND QUESTION. ( To the Editor of the W. W. Advertiser.) SIR,—As you have advertised for the best Essay on the Land Question, and as I do not feel competent to enter the lists, and am nevertheless interested in the matter, will you allow me to state a few facts which may be of use to those who feel disposed to grapple with this complicated subject, if indeed it be not now a grievance beyond redress. It would be unfair to say that Free Selec- tion has not done great good in certain locali- ties : and it would need to have done a world of good to compensate for its many mischiefs. Wingecarribee free-selection is legitimate, and honour, and glory, and praise to the men who clear the desert and make it blossom like the rose. There may be other loc...

A POST OFFICE FOR NORTH WAGGA WAGGA. (To the Editor of the W. W. Advertiser.) [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 9 January 1869

A POST OFFICE FOR NORTH WAGGA WAGGA. (To the Editor of the W. W. Advertiser.) SIR, I beg to call your attention to the necessity of having a Post Office opened in North Wagga Wagga. I have often to sand letters to my friends in that part, and I find that they seldom receive them in less than a week, or perhaps more. People not in busi-     ness and not expecting letters, are not likely   to call at your post office unless they are in town on other business, consequently, the letters lie until called for, which occasions many disappointments.     South Gundagai has a post, office and why should not North Wagga Wagga have one ? Yours. &c., J. SMITH.   January 4, 1869.

OUR NEXT MEMBER.   To the Editor of the Wagga Wagga Advertiser. SIR,—Your leader of January 2nd, ought to set the electors of this district considering in earnest, whom to elect for their represent- tative in the event of a general election. un- less they are satisfied with our present mem- ber. Many I know are not ; but would in- finitely prefer to be represented by one of themselves, one whose sympathy and property concentrated in this district assure us that by advocating our interests he would also be attending to his own, and therefore would not be likely to neglect us. Are we such barbarians, that among the influential residents of our town and neigh- bourhood we cannot find a gentleman of suffcient social status, possessing sufficient honesty, education, and intelligence, to rep- resent this constituency among the " Collec- tive Wisdom of New South Wales." Is it the melancholy fact that we are obliged to get a gentleman from Sydney or elsewhere— a perfect strange...

I have much pleasure in advising you and the public, through your columns, that I have carefully gone through the whole of the vines, about 13 acres, growing on Mr. Macleay's vineyard at Lake Albert, now under my charge, and I have not bean able to trace the least appearance of the destructive disease in any of the classes of vines in my vineyard. I have to-day brought into town, for the inspection of several gentlemen acquainted with vine- growing, a sample of my Black Shiraz grapes,   with their leaves, and also a bunch of Ver- deilho grapes, both in fine, healthy condi- tion, and I fully expect to have a fair crop, for such a season as this, from all my vines.   I quite agree in an active movement being made to get the Government to t...

GENERAL NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 9 January 1869

GENERAL NEWS. CAPTURE OF RUTHERFORD THE BUSH- RANGER.—DECEMBER 28.—I heard by the up mail from Wilcannia, that Rutherford, the bushranger, stuck up a station called Falarab, on the lower Darling, and took two horses.     Afterwards he visited one of Mr. Acre's stations, twelve-miles from Buckenby, aud took another horse. He kept the superin- tendent all night in handcuffs,, and told him that his mate, who was shot by M'Cabe,   became such a burden that he could no longer keep his company, and he murdered   him between the Lachlan and the Darling ; he further stated that he had a very hot time of it lately—the police of Booligal and Euston pursued him hotly. He said he would leave Acre's horse at Josephson's, on the Darling. This occurred on Friday, the 19th. Our police, on their own response- bility, bought fat horses, and started on the 22nd down the river, in, hopes of meeting   the notorious, ruffian. There is no mi...

STOCK REPORT. ADVERTISER Office, Friday Evening. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 9 January 1869

STOCK REPORT. ADVERTISER Office, Friday Evening. We regret that the continuance of the drought, the prevalence of bush fires, and the flocking of sheep, cattle, and horses to the mountains continue to be the order of the day. Squat- ters with water frontage are crying out con- siderably about travelling sheep ; no doubt, their case is a hard one, but in such a season it is difficult to suggest a remedy. This out- cry proceeds not only from the Murrumbid- gee stationholders, but also from those having frontages on the Darling, Darcoon, and Bogan. We sincerely trust rain in abundance will rejoice us before the end of this month, as it did last year. The " Dubbo Dispatch " says:-" On Mon- day we were visited by a thunderstorm, and a shower of about two hours' duration, which only made a slight fall in the tem- perature. The river frontages are swarm- ing with travelling sheep, the dead carcases of those that perished by starvation, and the crawling forms of those unable to carry their ...
