THE LATE DESTRUCTION BY FIRE OF ST. MARY'S TEMPORARY CATHEDRAL. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 13 January 1869
THE LATE DESTRUCTION BY FIRE OF ST. MARY'S TEMPORARY CATHEDRAL. AN inquiry respecting the destruction by fire of St. Mary's Temporary Cathedral on Tuesday last, was commenced before the City Coroner, yesterday. The inquiry was held in the dis- trict Court (by permission of Mr. District Court Judge Dowling), in consequence of the dilapidated state of the Coroner's Office, and its unsuitability in every respect for holding an inquiry even of the most minor importance. Jury : - Mr. William Love (foreman), Messrs. E. T. Penfold, John Brush, John &nbsp; Birrell, Walter Smith, Henry Burrows, Thomas Hodson, James Woodward, William Abbey, James M'Gregor, of George-street ; and Messrs. Francis A. Blake, and Thomas &nbsp; R. Yeo, of Pitt-street. Mr. W. B. Dalley, instructed by Messrs. Ellis and Makinson, appeared on behalf of Archbishop Polding and the officers of the Cathedral. The only evidence tending to give any clue to the origin of the fire was the following :- Patrick O...
Parliament of New South Wales. LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY. FRIDAY, JANUARY 8TH. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 13 January 1869
Parliament of New South Wales. LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY. FRIDAY, JANUARY 8TII. Ministers, in answer to questions, said, that information relating to the revenue for 1867 and 1868, and to the Treasury Bills now in circulation, would be answered when the financial statement was made; and that the Government had come to no determina- tion as to the course it would take to cause the refunding of the amounts paid for cab hire, etc., by the late Colonial Treasurer. &nbsp; Mr. WALKER presented a petition from John Thomas Neilson, praying inquiry into his claim for a run. Mr. MACLEAY called attention to a breach, of privilege by the publication in the Herald newspaper of what purported to be an ab- stract of the proceedings before the select committee on tae attempted assassination of the Prince. He complained of the publica- tion because it was incorrect, and tended to give a false idea of what had occurred before the committee. He moved the adjournment of the House, so that he could o...
GENERAL NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 13 January 1869
GENERAL NEWS. MR. FREDERICK LEE, the well-known phi- lanthropist—and at one time a candidate for the representation of Yass Plains electorate —being satisfied that O'Farrell was insane, applied to his Excellency the Governor to ap- point a commission of inquiry on the subject. His Excellency has refused to accede to Mr. Lee's request, and states there was no doubt in his own mind that O'Farrell was account- able for his actions when he attempted to assassinate H. R. H. Prince Alfred.—Yass &nbsp; Courier. TOTAL DESTRUCTION BY FIRE OF ST. MARY'S TEMPORARY CATHEDRAI.—We regret to have to report the total destruction of St. Mary's Temporary Cathedral, by fire, between the hours of 3 and 4, this morning. The fire evidently commenced at the north end of the wooden structure, used as a Temporary Cathedral, and from the highly inflammable material, the whole of the buildings were soon consumed. The north-east wind blow ing served but to accelerate the conflagration, and when the eng...
A BUSHMAN'S HOME. (From the S. A. Register.) [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 13 January 1869
A BUSHMAN'S HOME. (From the S. A. Register,) &nbsp; FROM the very infancy of squatting there have been apprehensions entertained by the thoughtful as to its moral effect on labour. It places men-masters as well as servants at a very great social disadvantage, and demands of them sacrifices which human nature cannot undergo with impunity. The &nbsp; similar experience of sailors had established this fact long before bushmen were recognised as a special class. Their few mouths' isola- tion on board ship exhibited a demoralising effect upon them which very few could resist. Their absolute withdrawal from social enjoyments excited their passions, weakened their self command, and at the end of a voyage returned them to society in a half-brute, half-childish state. They became the easiest victims of temptations, and the most unmanageable offenders against the public peace. Jack was always popular with landsmen, but rather as an inferior animal than as a fellow-citizen. Sai...
MISCELLANEOUS EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 13 January 1869
MISCELLANEOUS EXTRACTS. THE Buffalo Commercial learns that a startling incident occurred at Niagara Falls. A little girl, while getting upon the railing of the bridge leading from the main land to Goat Island, lost her balance and fell into the rapids. Instantly a young man named Moulton, who resides at Auburn, plunged ill to the rescue of the child. Grasping the little one and keeping her head above water, both were swept on towards the precipice, and destruction seemed inevitable. But Moulton being an expert swimmer, struggled manfully with the rushing torrent, and suc- ceeded in reaching the shore only about fifteen feet from the brink of the cataract. THE BIBLE IN SPAIN.—The Honorary Secretary of the Financial Committee of the Edinburgh Spanish Evangelization Society, Mrs. R. Peddie, publishes in the Edinburgh Courant an advertisement soliciting funds for the printing and circulation of the New Testament in Spain. It states that General Prim has declared to Senor Cabrera, one of...
MY BATTLE AXE BRAND. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 13 January 1869
MY BATTLE AXE BRAND. IN tatter'd old garments too bad for the &nbsp; town, With an oily old meerschaum that's colour'd dark brown, Far distant from, town, its temptations, and smiles, I've a snug little station, just three hundred miles. To find me this run was a task, I must own, But the sheep there are good and the scab is unknown; And the work I engage in from daylight to dark Just does to make money by way of a lark. My snug little house has in ev'ry recess Old local newspapers, fiends of the press ; Back volumes of Punch, full of witty old puns, ? . Kind letters from sisters, and sharp ones from duns. Old saddles, whips, bridles, valise-straps (all bought), Old second-hand tables, and chairs good for naught ; Some up-country furniture, hideous to see— But, by jove ! it must answer for you, friend and me. That loading-rod came from a bushranger's gun ; That seedy old hat has seen Collins-street sun ; &nbsp; A young lady fair did this gold pen bestow ; ' Tis a mur...
WOOL, STOCK, AND STATION REPORTS. SYDNEY. MESSRS. MORT AND Co.'s REPORT. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 13 January 1869
WOOL, STOCK, AND STATION REPORTS. SYDNEY. MESSRS. MORT AND CO,'S REPORT. WOOL.—This, market has assumed a better appearance, and at our auction sales, both on Tuesday and Thursday, more desire to purchase was exhibited ; caused no doubt by the brokers' anxiety to complete ship- ments by out-going vessels for May sales, &nbsp; combined with the feeling that London &nbsp; prices had shown symptoms of improve- ment—the consequence Was increased ani- mation in the biddings, and more business done at prices, which, if not in advance of late quotations, showed more buoyancy and activity in the market. Sheepskins were in full supply, and late prices fully maintained. We sold some 25,000 skins at from 2½d to 4d per lb. BREWSTER AND TREBECK'S REPORT :- STATIONS.—There is no alteration in demand for this class of property since last report. Rain has fallen to the northward, and from information received there is every reason to believe that the drought is breaking. STORE CATTL...
ETTERSHANK, EAGLESTONE, & Co's. REPORT. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 13 January 1869
ETTERSHANK, EAGLESTONE, & Co's. REPORT. FAT CATTLE.—The supply to hand during the past week has been fully equal to the requirements of the trade. Sales have been well attended, and late figures for good quality have been fully maintained, while other descriptions were dull of sale. Best pens brought from 17s 6d to 20s per 100 lbs. FAT SHEEP.—There is no alteration to re- port. A full supply offered, and good quality sheep brought prices about equal to last quotations, viz.-best wethers 9s to 10s, medium 7s to 8s ; inferior almost unsale- able. STORE CATTLE.—The demand continues, but little or no business can be done until a general breaking up of the drought takes place. Quotations unaltered. STORE SHEEP.—Nothing doing, prices nomi- nal. Our Melbourne firm, by telegram 6th Janu- ary, 1869, reports 1200 head of cattle and 20,000 sheep for the week's supply. Best beef brought fully late rates ; best wethers brought 8s 6d to 9s 6d.
THOMAS DAWSON'S REPORT. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 13 January 1869
THOMAS DAWSON'S REPORT. FAT CATTLE.—Full of inferior stock, which may be termed market spoilers. Good stockare scarce, and by all accounts from the interior I expect them to remain so. I have this week placed a mixed lot of 200, Dangar Brothers, at 51 a head, with de- livery at Singleton. FAT SHEEP.—Market glutted with middling and inferior stock, and any remarks on the fat cattle market are equally applicable to this. Prices determined by quality. STOKE STOCK.—Nothing doing. HORSES.—Market fully supplied.
GOLDSBROUGH, BURT, & CO.'s. REPORT. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 13 January 1869
GOLDSBROTTGH, BERT, & CO.'s. REPORT. &nbsp; FAT CATTLE.—A much fuller supply this week, prices consequently easier; the majority of the cattle coming forward are light weights ranging from 5— cwt, to 64 cwt. No really heavy and prime quality in the market. At sales this week best &nbsp; quality realised £6 to £7 ; second do., £4 10s to £5 10s. FAT SHEEP.—Market much over-stocked with large lots of medium and low quality sheep ; hardly any prime offering. This, combined with unusual competition in the the retailers this week at 1d per lb., has operated seriously in prices, which, for some lots,, are almost nominal. Best heavy weight of prime quality are worth 8s 6d to 9s 6d ; other qualities range from 4s to 7s, according to weight. STORE SHEEP.—Lots offering. No buyers at any price. STORE CATTLE.—Enquiries very numerous for good lots, and when the drought breaks, we shall be prepared to execute several large orders. STATIONS.—In the present condition of the c...
MELBOURNE. THE LONDON AND AUSTRALIAN AGENCY CORPORATION (LIMITED) REPORT: [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 13 January 1869
MELBOURNE. THE LONDON AND AUSTRALIAN AGENCY &nbsp; CORPORATION (LIMITED) REPORT : &nbsp; WOOL.—We had a large attendance at our sale this day, when we submitted a cata- logue, of 1468 bales. Our sales of to-day principally comprised wool of that par- ticular low class, characterised by the London brokers as wools totally unsaleable by them at almost any price. When any decent parcel was offered we had spirited competition, and an advance in prices of fully 1d per lb on the latter portion of the same brand than had previously been &nbsp; realized this season. We sold—greasy, from 5d. to 9d per lb ; scoured, 12d to 19d per lb ; fleece, 10d to 14½d per lb. &nbsp;
DALMAHOY CAMPBELL AND CO.'S REPORT. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 13 January 1869
DALMAHOY CAMPBELL AND CO.'S REPORT. FAT CATTLE.—1,230 were entered for this week's supply, rather more than half of which have been sold to-day. The greater part of them were of fair quality, with a &nbsp; few pens of extra prime, from Mr. W. Lyall'a paddocks at Yallock, which topped the market and made 30s per 100 lbs. There was a good attendance of the town &nbsp; trade, also a fair proportion of country butchers ; and, owing to the short supply last week, most of the trade were bare of &nbsp; stock, consequently competition was very &nbsp; brisk at the opening sales, when a slight &nbsp; advance on last week's rates took place, but towards the close prices were hardly &nbsp; so firm. We quote best bullocks at from &nbsp; 10/ to 11/ 17s 6d ; second, 7/ to 8/ ; inferior, 4/ 10s to 5/ 10s ; boat cows from 7/ 10s to 8/ 17s 6d ; second, 5/ to 6/ ; inferior, 3/ 10s to 4/ 10s. We have sold for Mr. Wm. Lyall, 50 extra prime and near...
ETTERSHANK, EAGLESTONE & Co.'s REPORT. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 13 January 1869
ETTERSHANK, EAGLESTONE & Co.'s REPORT. FAT CATTLE.—1,243 head of fat cattle were entered for the week, half of which were sold to-day. Most of those penned were good, with a few lots of really prime. There was a full attendance of buyers, and biddings were very spirited, prime quality &nbsp; realising a slight advance on late rates, and medium quality remaining firm. We quote extra quality pens of bullocks from 10/ 10s to 11/ 17s 6d ; prime do, medium weights, from 8/ 10s to 9/ 10s ; second quality do, from 6/ 10s to 7/ 10s ; inferior do, from 4/ upwards. Cows in proportion. FAT SHEEP.—In point of numbers, the sup- ply, viz., 26,687, was much in excess of the demand, but really prime qualities were only moderately represented, and all such sold readily at fully late rates, while medium qualities were mostly quitted at a slight reduction. A large portion of the latter were disposed of for boiling down and preserving purposes. We quote prime quality wethers at from 8s ...

BALLARAT LIVE STOCK MARKET. MESSRS NORMAN R. MACLEOD AND CO.'S &nbsp; REPORT :- FAT CATTLE.—The market this week was supplied with 520 head, the greater portion of which were really good, quality ; a draft of Eddington's in particular being the best yarded for some time, though not heavy weights. Town and country trade were both fairly represented, and sales, though not particularly lively, were effected with out any marked reduction on previous rates, the market closing firm. Quotations : —Best pens, bullocks, 7/ 10s to 9/ 7s 6d ; second, 6/ to 7/; inferior, 4/ to 5/ 10s. Averages :- Ware's bullocks, 8/ 1s 8d. Ed- dington's bullocks 7/ 19s. M'Laurin's bullocks 7/ 10s 6d.

Nearly the whole of this large supply consisted of second and inferior quality sheep, the greater proportion being in little better than store condition, and not even suitable for the pot. There was a fair attendance of buyers present, and t...
Advertising [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 13 January 1869
PRIZE OF ONE HUNDRED GUINEAS FOR 'fJIB 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 happy golden mea...

Wagga Wagga Advertiser "This is true liberty, when freeborn men, Having to advise the public, may speak free." MILTON. WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 13, 1869. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 13 January 1869
" This is true liberty, when freeborn men, Having to advise the public, may speak free." MILTON. WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 13, 1869. THE question which from its pure sim- plicity so often astonishes a new-comer to Wagga Wagga, is—why don't they incorporate the town? Why, indeed —it is a question that may be asked a great many times to very little purpose. They seem to have made up their minds in Wagga Wagga to accept things as they are. The temperature may have something to do with it. It is absurd to expect people to be energetic even for such a palpably good purpose as a municipality when the thermometer is making such terrific demands upon their patience or philosophy. Still thehot weather has one advantage : it brings &nbsp; out in strong relief the weak points of the town, or in other words, it proves &nbsp; to demonstration the absolute necessity of its incorporation. We have taken some pains to arrive at the exact reason of the public in- difference on this subject, ...

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 13 January 1869
LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. THE WENTWORTH MINING COMPANY.— The members of this evidently " thriving " Association must be animals "worthy the inspection of the public," (as menagerie placards have it) and highly interesting to the curious in physiology. A telegram in Satur- day's Herald, advises that there was a great " crash " whilst " loading the large boilers for the Wentworth Mining Company, weigh- &nbsp; ing eight tons each." On convivial occasions with the thermometer at 120° in the shade, these very large shareholders must be a " caution," with their " coppers hot " and the " steam up." It was a small mercy that in the process of " loading " they did not " go off," and we leave it to the imagination of our readers to conceive the awful " Sal- magundi " effect, of the Company had " bust their bilers " on the occasion referred to by the Herald. INTENSE HEAT AT GUNDAGAI.—The most sensational and " melting " reports of the heat of the weather on the 24th December, come from Gunda...
