GUNDAROO. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 13 January 1869

GUNDAROO. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] HAVE you any favourable regard to the manly game of cricket ? Wagga Wagga used to excel in this matter, but for some cause or other seems to have lost its good character in this respect. Certainly, cricket with the glass at 112° would be very much like making a toil of a pleasure. During the holidays we have had two matches, and as both games were played well, and one with some remark- able circumstances of interest and excitement, a short notice may not be unacceptable. The Gundaroo Club having received a chal- lenge from their friends at Gininderra, 17 miles distant, to play there on Boxing day, thither on that day a party repaired. Mr. W. Davis is well known to be an enthusiast in the sport, and on arriving at the ground adjoining his very pleasant homestead, we found all in readyness for the great battle of the day. The Gininderra men went first to the wickets, and scored 79. Gundaroo wen in and numbered only 58. In the "second innings Gin...

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. All communications to this journal must be authen- timted by the name and address of the writer. No notice will be taken of anonymous communications, and no rejected communications will be returned. THE HOSPITAL. (To the Editor of the W. W. Advertiser.)   SIR,—I notice in your issue of Wednesday   last a report of the Committee meeting of the Wagga Wagga Hospital. No individual in the community regrets   the departure from amongst us of Dr. Mor-   gan more deeply than I do ; but this regret   would have been considerably modified by     the appointment of a medical officer to our Hospital in all respects worthy to take the place of him who leaves it. Of the fitness of Dr. Large for the duties of this office I shall say nothing. His appointment by Dr. Morgan, associated as he is with Dr. Robinson, is a fact which, if correctly understood, may lead us to a fair estimate ...

SELECT POETRY. THE CONTENTED MAN, [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 16 January 1869

SELECT POETRY. THE CONTENTED MAN,   I SEEK no change, no notion strange of pro- gress or reform— Nor will I mix with politics or faction's angry storm ; I'll not be sad, though trade is bad, my maxim's better far I take things as I find 'em, and leave 'em as they are. Poor Jeff may get in such a pet because things ain't done right, And fret and fume and pace his room through many a weary night ; But deuce a bit would I permit such stuff my rest to mar— I take things as I find 'em, and leave 'em as they are. The Customs tax upon our backs with awk- ward weight may press, " The House " may be a scene of strife, where wrongs get no redress ; In fierce debate exposures great may scandal Spread afar— I take things as I find 'em, and leave 'em as they are. And Henry might be more polite to John—I think he should— If t'other would but be the same, I'm sure I think he would ; But deuce a bit would I permit such stuff my rest to mar—   I take things as I find 'em, a...

MIR. CHARLES DICKENS. (From the Times.) [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 16 January 1869

Mr. CHARLES DICKENS. (From the Times.) THE first course of " readings " with which Mr. Dickens proposes to take leave of the listening, as distinguished from the reading public, commenced on the 5th October at St. James's Hall. The principal piece selected was the autobiography of " Dr. Marigold," first recounted in a Christmas number of All the Year Bound, published about two years ago, and perhaps there is no character in which the great novelist appears to more advantage than in that of the famous " Cheap Jack." The sustained homeliness of manner, the master of a language which, in spite of its offences against grammar, is prevented by the honest dignity and good feeling of the man from becom- ing vulgar, the quiet humour that now and then creeps into the narrative, are inimitable, while the burst of agony that breaks up the usually even surface when he recounts the death of his child is rendered doubly appalling by the contrast. The never-failing trial scene from Pickwick gave a...

THE WAGGA WAGGA HOSPITAL. (To the Editor of the W. W. Advertiser.) [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 16 January 1869

THE WAGGA WAGGA HOSPITAL.   (To the Editor of the W. W. Advertiser.)   SIR,—Your correspondent, " Medicus," in his letter published in your issue of the 13th inst., asserts that Dr. Morgan has appointed Dr. Large to take his duties at the Hospital during his leave of absence. I beg to inform you that Dr Morgan has not made such an appointment, nor has the Committee. Dr.   Large was kind enough to offer to Dr. Mor-   gan his assistance whenever it might be required, and this was mentioned in Dr. Morgan's application for leave of absence, read at the last meeting. The Committee   have the power in their own hands to meet the exigencies of the case as they see fit.     T. C. HEATH, Sec. W. W. Hospital, By order of the Committee.

THE BRIDGE COMPANY AND LANDHOLDERS OF NORTH WAGGA WAGGA. (To the Editor of the W. W. Advertiser.) [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 16 January 1869

THE BRIDGE COMPANY AND LAND HOLDERS OF NORTH WAGGA WAGGA.   (To the Editor of the W. W. Advertiser,)   SIR,—The Wagga Wagga Express grows profound on the matter of private enterprise, when brought to bear on public interests, and especially as it affects the value of real property. This in a subject which has not been dealt with by Adam Smith, Stuart Mill, or any other great political economist, an the spirit Much its vast importance has deserved. It has been reserved for the Wagga Wagga Express, by its leader of the 9th instant, to solve this interesting problem, and to fix the standard of depreciation which landholders may fairly calculate upon in cases whore energetic companies construct invaluable bridges to render their particular   districts the great centres of an enormous (traffic. . I quote from the great authority (the Express) the following forcible passage :- " The effect of the bridge tolls now is to reduce the value of all propert...

SYDNEY GOSSIP. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] January 6th. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 16 January 1869

SYDNEY GOSSIP. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] January 6th. " IF all the year were playing holidays, to sport would be an tedious as to work." So said, or sang, Shakespere, and it may be some consolation to his manes to know that I perfectly coincide, with, him, especially after my experiences of Sydney during the past three weeks. However, it is all over now, thank the fates. For the whole of that time the community seem to have been abandoned to a wild dream of revelry, plunging reck- lessly into such vortices of dissipation as could be found in athletic sports, cheap con-   certs, regattas, races, railway excursions, teetotal picnics, and kindred irregularities. No thought of " Black Monday " deterred these ardent souls from making a business of pleasure, or enduring an amount of heat and bibulous absorption perfectly terrific to think upon. But " Time and the hour run   through the longest day," and at length Misrule has fled howling to the shades below, ...

MELBOURNE MEMS. January, 10, 1869. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 16 January 1869

MELBOURNE MEMS. January, 10, 1869. SOCIALLY, our principal excitement has been gubernatorial. The three Governors (that is the two present and one past) have been occupying the attention of that select portion of the public which considers itself the creme de la creme of Victorian society. The other night the Triumvirate went to the Theatre Royal, and a house crowded beyond endurance was the result. It is seldom that the public get an opportunity of seeing three real living Governors at once, and they took advantage of the opportunity. There is some considerable excitement pending respecting the issue of the New Year's Day steeplechase. As I told you, the race was won by Viking, Babbler and Bal- lasat, the leading horses, having mistaken the course. It appears that the crowd closed in upon the straight running, and the riders following the direction of the old course, did not find out their mistake until it was too late to remedy it. The sportiug Press— notably the Australasian is v...

Parliament of New South Wales. LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY. TUESDAY, JANUARY 12TH. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 16 January 1869

Parliament of New South Wales. LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY. TUESDAY, JANUARY 12TH. MINISTERS, in answer to questions, said :- That no communication had been received from the Victorian Government inviting this Government to co-operate in the mail service via the Cape o£ Good Hope ; that fish-plates, waggon and carriage wheels, iron work for bridges, were contracted for from England, the total cost of which would he £127,135 ; and that 779 persons were employed in the Railway department, and that their pay for the last quarter of 1868 amounted to £35,559. Mr. SAMUEL laid on the table a letter from the Superintendent of the Quarantine Station, denying that the passengers by the Rakaia,   now in quarantine, had been prevented from landing at the station and taking possession of the huts there. In answer to Mr. Wilson, Mr. SAMUEL said that the correspondence relative to the placing the Rakaia in quarantine would be laid on the table as soon as completed. Dr. LANG moved, as a forma...

STOCK REPORT. ADVERTISER Office, Friday Evening. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 16 January 1869

STOCK REPORT.   ADVERTISER Office, Friday Evening. We have again to chronicle the unpleasant fact that the drought still continues. There seems to be a settled conviction amongst the most experienced that we have unmistakably before us a long and very trying drought. Appearances certainly warrant it. Station which, up to the present time have main- tamed their stock, are at last exhausted, and are now sending away their " half-rationed " sheep, cattle, and horses to travel for their living. Correspondents from all parts of   the country report large numbers of stock   travelling, and it is extraordinary in what   way these travellers are benefitted, as they   can only pass over those runs which have   already starved their own stock off. It is   evident, they travel chiefly, not for grass, but for water ; and as this is a station-necessary, and one which can be secured by everyone so disposed,...

PRIZE   OF ONE HUNDRED GUINEAS FOR THE BEST ESSAY 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 gold...

Magga Magga Advertiser. "This is the liberty, whon freeborn men, Having to advise the public, may speak free." MILTON. SATURDAY, JANUARY 16, 1869. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 16 January 1869

Wagga Wagga Advertiser " This is true liberty, when freeborn men, Having to advise the public, may speak free." MILTON. SATURDAY, JANUARY 16, 1869. IT has been suggested that the time has arrived when a revision should be made of the apportionment of members for the country districts under the Electoral Act of 1858. The honourable member for the Hastings, Mr. FORSTER, introduced some sessions ago a Bill for the division of his own electorate ; but, with the usual fatality attending that gentleman's legislative efforts, it came to nothing. The Clarence, although boasting a Premier as its representative, is not satisfied with its legislative faci- lities, and wishes to provide the veteran father of the Land laws with a colleague. For the Hume it seems to be thought that Mr. MATE requires to be mated, and apart from the numerical claims of that district, we really do not wonder at that opinion being arrived at. Our own district has equal claims with any of those we have named to a full...

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 16 January 1869

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. CALAMITOUS FIRE.—We exceedingly re- gret to learn that a fire took place at Elm Cottage, Oura, (the residence of Mr. William Rand) on Wednesday afternoon, which re- sulted in the total destruction of the cottage and everything it contained without a single   exception. The fire took place about five o'clock p.m., and so rapid was the work of destruction owing to the wind then prevail-   ing, the inflammable nature of the building, and the excessive dryness of every thing, (induced by the intense beat of the atmos- phere which has so long prevailed) that in less than half an hour the cottage was a heap of ruins. No reliable cause can be assigned as the origin of this sad casualty. The im- pression prevailing with the family, is that matches had been shed accidentally at differ- ent times, and fallen through the spaces between the boards into the space beneath, where shavings, and other very combustible material had been collected during t...
