. PRIZE OF ONE HUNDRED GUINEAS FOR THE BEST ESSAY ON THE LAND QUESTION. IT is granted on nil sides that the Land Law requires amendment : tho Squatter declares it ; the Free-selector admits it ; and the author of tho 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 happy golden mean ...

Wagga Wagga Advertiser "This is true liberty, when freeborn man, Having to advise the public, may speak free." MILTON. SATURDAY, JANUARY 9, 1869. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 9 January 1869

Wagga Wagga Advertiser " This is true liberty, when freeborn man, Having to advise the public, may speak free." MILTON. SATURDAY, JANUARY 9, 1869. THE Melbourne Ministry are making a very difficult and very dangerous ex- periment. Naturally and by long habit extravagant, they are attempt- ing to be economical—willing and anxious to spend, as all Ministries must be, they are compelled by force of cir- cumstances to retrench. This is always an unpleasant process. No one likes to discover that he has been going too fast, that he is approaching the foot of the hill and must "take a pull " if he would-avoid the impending " crash." But with Governments as with individuals there is sometimes no alternative. There is no surer Nemesis than the gaunt necessity which now and then overtakes spendthrifts, of re- ducing their expenditure. Individually, it is undoubtedly a bore of the first magnitude. If you have been in the habit, say, of smoking seven-and-six- penny cigars and imbibing to an un-...

TELEGRAPHIC INTELLIGENCE. SYDNEY. Herald Office, January 8th, 8 p.m. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 9 January 1869

TELEGRAPHIC INTELLIGENCE. SYDNEY. Herald Office,       January 8th, 8 p.m.   Two bushrangers stuck up the Gym- pie coach near Brisbane, on Wednes- day. A bank clerk, who was a pas- senger, fired four shots at the robbers, and is supposed to have wounded both, as they retired after wounding a passenger through the wrist. A detective while pursuing the rob- bers shot himself accidentally. Thunderbolt's mate was captured   yesterday, near the Wellingrove river. The Treasurer's financial statement shews a deficit of over a hundred and fifty thousand pounds, but anticipates a surplus of thirty thousand pounds for the present year, and proposes no new taxation. The nomination for the Western Gold-fields is fixed for the twenty-fifth instant. The Melbourne Government intends to call for tenders for mail communica- tion with England by the Cape route. The thorough-bred horse, Ace of Clubs, is dead. Bowler's Antelope has been b...

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 9 January 1869

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. THE RIVER. — The Murrumbidgee, like everything else, is shewing painful signs of the withering influence of the season. This " noble stream" is now reduced to such con- temptible proportions that little boys may be daily seen fording it, about opposite to where the wharf is to be. We heard some time ago that tenders had been called for this work. When is it to be proceeded with ? The season, which, if favorable for nothing else, could hardly be more so for this purpose, is fast slipping away, and when, if ever, the drought does break up, we suppose it will be with a vengeance. At the Rocks, where swimmers most do congregate, the navigation has become very difficult. Snags, ugly, jagged, and slimy, are disclosed, lying like defunct ichthyosaurians in the mud, where no one before suspected their existence ; the spot you swam over a few weeks ago in per- fect confidence is now an island, where you may land, if you like, and don't mind an oc- casional cut ; and your ...

POLICE COURT. WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 6. (Before the Police Magistrate and F. A. Tompson, Esq., J.P.) [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 9 January 1869

POLICE COURT. WEDNESDAY, JANUABY 6. (Before the Police Magistrate and F. A. Tompson, Esq., J.P.) EDWIN THOMS, an infirm old man, appeared in custody, nominally on a charge of drunken ness, but in reality he had been locked up for protection, his naturally feeble condition having been rendered worse by the cffects of beer. Discharged with a little judicial advice. James Johnson was brought up, charged with robbing tile above individual (Edwin Thoms) of a sovereign, during the previous afternoon. The money could not be found by the apprehending constable, and on the hearing of the case, the evidence did not justify a committal, consequently prisoner was discharged. Catherine, Ellen, Mary, and Barbara Con- frey, four neglected, tagged little creatures, of from eight to two years, were brought before the Bench by Constable Jones Nelson, of Narandera, With a view to their being in some way provided for. It appeared that they were the children of one Anna Confrey, a free selector, who, so...

TABLE TALK. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 9 January 1869

TABLE TALK. I HAVE heard a good deal lately of the Moonlight concerts in the Domain in Sydney. They are very charming affairs, for those who like music and moonshine combined, or are partial to a little harmless flirtation in the soft hours. The Very Rev. Dr. Bailey is reported to have the highest possible opinion of their beneficial effect on the youthful mind—and to have suggested that the popular idea that "marriages are made in Heaven " should be amended, so far as Sydney is concerned into "Marriages are made in the Domain and and ratified at the Free Church." Well, we have no band in Wagga, no Domain, and no Dr. Bailey ; but we have our " Moonlight concerts.'' We are an original people, and make short Work of trifling difficulties. I have not the least doubt we could get up a very respect- able impromptu opera to-morrow, notwith- standing that the pianos are all desperately out of tune, and that nobody can sing. Understand, I make no sort of allusion to the peculiar institution...

PARKES'S EXAMINATION. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 13 January 1869

PARKES'S EXAMINATION. Mr. Punch saw in yesterday's Herald a statement of the evidence already given before Mr. Macleay's committee. The Herald's report is, as usual, quite erro- neous. Mr. Punch's stenographers   have furnished him with the following examination of Parhes himself By the Chairman: What is your name ?—Witness: Henry Parkes. Do you produce everything in your possession concerning the Fenian con- spiracy ?—I do. I produce a turnip scooped out, a short pipe, a white sheet, and a file of the Kiama Pilot.   You were Colonial Secretary at the time of the occurrence at Clontarf ?— was. What did you do on heaving of the Prince's attempted assassination ?—I at once bought and read eagerly the Castle of Otranto, various works on demonology, the Night Side of Nature, and several elaborate treatises on ghosts. I then enrolled myself as an   honorary member of the detective, police force ; and asked one of the equerries, whether the Prince, w...

ARTIFICIAL IRRIGATION. (From the Journal of Science.) [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 13 January 1869

ARTIFICIAL IRRIGATION. (From the Journal of Science.) FEW are perhaps aware of the extraor- dinary fertilising powers of water even upon a barren sandy desert; but it has been piroved by actual demonstration that the whole of Sindh, the greater part of which is marked on some of our maps of India as the " Great Desert," might be turned into a perfect garden merely by diverting some of the waters of the Indus, which now run away into the sea, and applying them to the parched-up land. Again, along the banks of the Suez Canal fertility has in many places succeeded to a sterility of probably some thousand of years' existence, and there is no practical reason why the entire desert, now for the first time cultivated only in parts, should not in course of years again ful- fil the Divine mandate and "bring forth herbs, and fruit for the use of man." Artificial irrigation consists in con- ducting water fromsome natural source of supply, such as rivers, springs or lakes, by means of channels,...

MR. PARRES AND HIS "CONFESSSIONAL." (To the Editor of the W. W. Advertiser.) [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 13 January 1869

MR. PARRES AND HIS " CONFESS- SIONAL."     (To the Editor of the W. W. Advertiser.) SIR,—The public have had the opportunity of reading, marking, learning, and inwardly digesting, the printed parliamentary papers in the O'Farrell-et-Parkes business, and in view of the political furor which has latterly agitated the public mind, it is remarkable   how little interest has been excited by the subject. What are we to think of the con- duct of Mr. Parkes, who in his official capacity as Colonial Secretary, introduced, or rather intruded himself, into the cell of an unhappy criminal, of set purpose to extort from him matter, which should result in self condemnation ; and entrap him, by an ap- parent confidential conversation, " into the betrayal of associates : perhaps (having re- gard to the prisoner's state of mind, and the enormity of his offence) into an accusation of innocent persons. The " offence is rank " and if it does not " smell to Heaven,...

THE EXPRESS AND THE REV. MR. CURREY. (To the Editor of the W. W. Advertiser.)       SIR,—My attention has been called to a most scurrilous, and personal attack upon me, in the Wagga Wagga Express of December 5th. It is certainly atrocious—that a public journalist should so grossly insult and injure a person who has never given him any cause. In May, 1867, having completed my arrange- ments for a return to the colony, after an absence of 23 years (except a short visit in 1860), the greater portion of the time having been spent in the United States of America, I determined to take the overland route, as a means of informing myself respecting the state of affairs in the interior of the colony ; and in hope of the beneficial effect of the trip upon the health of Mrs. Currey, which had severely suffered by the death of our youngest son, in the month of January pre ceding. From the universal courtesy and kindness with which we were received— &amp...

HIS EXCELLENCY THE GOVERNOR AND COUNTESS OF BELMORE LOST IN THE BUSH. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 13 January 1869

HIS EXCELLENCY THE GOVERNOR AND COUNTESS OF BELMORE LOST   IN THE BUSH. A correspondent of the Empire, under   date, " Kangaloon, January 4th, says :- It is not often that the monotony of this secluded locality is relieved by ?ov incident of an exciting nature, but the good folks were roused out of their usual apathy on Saturday last, about 6 o'clock p.m., by a four-wheeled carriage and pair-of -sparkling bays, in which were a lady and gentleman,   attended by a servant, and escorted by a mounted orderly, being driven at a rapid pace through this place towards the Jamberoo Mountain, which it was next to impossible they could ever have descended, and the good     folks were astonished to find it was his Excellency the Governor and his Countess, with their footman and orderly, being the first time a good many of them had ever seen a real live Earl and a Governor to boot, not to speak of a Countess. It appears that his Ex...
