WESLEYAN MISSIONARY MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 16 January 1869

WESLEYAN MISSIONARY MEETING. I On Sunday last two sermons were preached in the Wesleyan Church by the Rev. C.   Stead, of Adelong, on behalf of the Missionary Society, and on Tuesday evening the annual meeting was hold in the Church. The pro- ceedings commenced with singing and prayer, after winch some extracts from the Report of the Society were read by the Rev. H. Wiles. The Rev. C. STEAD was then called upon to address the meeting. He said he need not apologise to them for pleading 0n behalf of such an institution as the Wesleyan Missionary Society. It aimed at the noblest of all objects, the regeneration of men, and that without regard to race or colour. It recognised the unity of mankind, and de- clared that the soul of the Fijian was as valuable in God's sight as that of the European. Everywhere the Gospel had proved its power to bless and save mankind. The dusky Hindoo, the cannibal Fijian, the degraded African, alike testified that the Gospel is capable of regen...

POLICE COURT. FRIDAY, JANUARY 15. (Before the Police Magistrate and F. A. Tompson, Esq., J.P.) [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 16 January 1869

POLICE COURT. FRIDAY, JANUARY 15. (Before the Police Magistrate and F. A.   Tompson, Esq., J.P.) CHARGE OF CATTLE STEALING.—John Rose appeared on summons, charged with stealing a bullock the property of Celia Maguire. Prosecutor is the widow of the late James Maguire, who has left a will which has never been administered to. The evi- dence shewed, (and the will itself was produced in corroboration thereof) that the testator left all his property, including cattle, to her daughter Matilda who appears to be cohabiting with Rose, who sold one of the bullocks to John Hart for and on account of Matilda Maguire as her agent. The Bench considered that defendant, in dealing with the beast in question, did so, believing he had a bona fide right, and without felonious intent, and dismissed the case. Mr. Willans watched the case for prose- cutor, and Mr. Gibbes was employed for defendant. (Before the Police Magistrate only.) John Williams, alias " Brandy," was charged by Mr. F. A....

NARANDERA. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 16 January 1869

NARANDERA. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] UPON our principal source of anxiety, the weather, I regret I have no favourable altera- tion to report, the lengthened drought and excessive heat are rapidly showing their effect upon everything living. Horses and cattle from the back country may be seen by day and heard by night coming 0n to the frontage for water ; and every day they appear weaker than the former. A few I observed yesterday will not, I think, be able to crawl in again ; in fact, I am sure, unless we get an early rain and a heavy one, it is merely a matter of time with the most, of them ; for without a good spring in the grass, the unfortu- nate brutes that manage for a time to exist will be cut down upon the first frosty night. Saturday last was a day to be remembered, and not with pleasant recollections, but with the hope never to have a repetition of the same heat and dust. If we had a week of such, I am sure Life Insurance Companies may safely dispense with their medica...

HAY. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 16 January 1869

HAY. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] THE Rev. J. Maitland Ware, of Deniliquin, is announced to hold divine service here on 28th February next. While in Hay, the rev. gen- tleman will do something towards ascertain- ing the feelings of the people in respect of the Church of England matters in this district. Various causes have lately contributed to their decay in the locality. The church which was built during the pastorate of the Rev. Mr. Carl is not entirely paid for, and this is scarecly creditable to the parties im- mediately concerned in its building. It is at present in the occasional occupation of the Presbyterians, under the Rev. Mr. Hamilton, who holds service in it as often as the exi- fencies of the outlying districts will admit of is attendance in town. We have had to endure a recurrence of the intolerably hot weather with which we were previously afflicted this season, and its ac- companiments, characteristic of Hay, the usual destructive dust storms. The town is wholly un...

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 HOSPITAL. (To the Editor of the W. W. Advertiser.) SIR,—As a member of the Committee of the Wagga Wagga Hospital, I cannot allow the letter of your correspondent " Medicus " to pass unchallenged. " Medicus," whoever he may be, is no professional man, thus to decry his brother. While it is quite possible that his opinions, respecting the relative merits of the gentleman he so unscrupulously mentions by name, may be correct ones, I, for one of the Hospital Committee, desire to protest, in the strongest manner, against such an unseemly and, I must add, cowardly attack on a gentleman, who has done nothing to deserve it. Your correspondent first de- clines to criticise the abilities of Dr. Large for the position, and next proceeds to at- tempt to demolish his rep...

SELECT POETRY. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 20 January 1869

SELECT POETRY.     Is Good Words appears the following lively little poem, bearing the true and cordial stamp of its highland origin and paternity :-   " DANCE, MY CHILDREN !" " Dance, my children ! lads and lasses ! Cut and shuffle, toes and heels ! Piper, roar from every chanter Hurricanes of Highland reels ! " Make the old barn shake with laughter, Beat its flooring like a drum, Better it with Tullochgorum, Till the storm without is dumb ! " Sweep in circles like a whirlwind, Flit across like meteors glancing, Crack your Angers, shout in gladness, Think of nothing but of dancing !" Thus a grey-haired father speaketh, As he claps his hands and cheers ; Yet his heart is quietly dreaming, And his eyes are dimmed with tears. Well he knows this world of sorrow, Well he knows this world of sin, Well he knows the race before them, What's to lose, and what's to win ! But he hears a far-off music Guiding all the stately spheres— In his father-heart i...

THE OLD GIRL. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 20 January 1869

THE OLD GIRL. THERE is a wide gulf, we see at once, between the Old Girl and the Fading   Flower. The feverish mobility, the half-despairing yet passionate desire to attract, the strange medley of poetry and prose, of sentiment and worldly- ness, that amused us in the earlier stage, is gone. Life has fairly settled down into a calm monotony. The Old Girl looks out over the level sands of exist- ence as the colossal forms of Egyptian sculpture look over the desert, with the same grand immobility, with a patience of cards and crochet almost as   divine as theirs. A faint echo, indeed, of the passions of the past ripples up every now and then to die at her feet. Sometimes there is a lover, old as her- self, dying down as she dies into the peace and rest of things, yet jostling against her at intervals to wake the old memories, to renew the old offers. And then the voice and the look and the touch will bring about a slight attack of la seconde jeunesse, a dim t...

MUSICAL MEN. (From the New York Round Table.) [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 20 January 1869

MUSICAL MEN. (From the New York Round Table.)   FORTUNATELY, musical men, as a rule,   never have brains, which is, perhaps, a strong additional reason for the pre- ference which women give them, as both these facts combine to constitute the main cause of their unpopularity with men. For men treat them very much as they would handle an orna-   mental but utterly useless piece of   Bohemian glass, and talk to them as though the electric shock of a sudden idea would shatter their brittle elegance ; and the musical man, though he is in tellectually incapable of analyzing the distinction—unable, because he is a fool, to see wherein he is treated like one—is still dimly disquieted and made instinctively conscious of a vast un- pleasant difference between the recep-   tion accorded to him by his feminine adorers and that which he meets with from their brothers and husbands and masculine unmusical friends. So he naturally avo...

No notice will he taken of anonymous communications, and no rejected communications will be returned. THE HOSPITAL AND " MEDICUS." (To the Editor of the W. W. Advertiser.) SIR,—Since reading the correspondence pub- lished this morning in the Advertiser and Express, I have carefully read my letter to see if it contained anything to justify the bitter- ness with which two of the writers express themselves. I read the letter under the influ- ence of the feelings which dictated it, and I am not prepared to withdraw one word of what I have written. I shall briefly, and only briefly, notice the productions which have well-abused me, and materially assisted the cause have advocated. " A. J. Hooke, Hospital Committee," and manager of the Bank of Now South Wales, Wagga Wagga, has been good enough to re- lieve me of the necessity to reply at all to his abusive tirade. He ha...

FREE SELECTION AT THE TUMUT. (To the Editor of the W. W. Advertiser.) [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 20 January 1869

FREE SELECTION AT THE TUMUT. (To the Editor of the W. W. Advertiser,) SIR,—A letter signed " Mens Conscia Recti " appeared in your issue of last Saturday, in which the writer, wishing to convoy a few facts to the competitors for the prize for the best essay on the Land question, says, " free selection has transmuted Tumut into an unsavoury combination of poverty and perjury, and has engendered two dangerous types of the ' genus homo '—the incencen- diary and the thief." This being, of con- scious integrity, according to Mr. Butler, as reported by your Sydney correspondent, is himself the very worst of incendiaries—not   now only, in casting down this firebrand at Wagga, but has been so for years past. The good folks of Wagga Wagga must now be impressed with the idea that this district is lighted up every night by burning hayricks and blazing cottages—that falsehood and theft stalk nakedly abroad. Do the proceedings at our police court shew this ? At most, two fires have...

ALBURY RACES. (From the Albury Banner.) [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 20 January 1869

ALBURY RACES. (From the Albury Banner.) On the first day of our race-meeting, on Thursday last, there was not a very large show of visitors, but the fact was well ac- counted for by the uninviting look of the weather ; a hot wind was blowing during the middle of the day, and solid clouds of dust blew fiercely over the whole length of the road between Albury and the racecourse. The impecunisoity of the times was also generally supposed to have had a good deal to do with the thinness of the show of squat- ters and their families, who put in an appear- ance on both days of the meeting. Certain it is, however, that the attendance of visitors was not as numerous as the nature of the sport would well have deserved ; but in spite of elements and seasons several hundred people were at one time congregated round the grand stand. Owing to the long-continued   drought, the condition of the course was dreadfully hard and slippery, except where it had been worked into dust in front ...

Parliament of New South Wales. LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY. THURSDAY, JANUAHY 14TH. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 20 January 1869

Parliament of New South Wales. LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY. THURSDAY, JANUAHY 14TH. MR. J. STEWART resumed the adjourned   debate on the Collector of Customs' Super- annuation Bill. He had had so little expecta- tion of the bill passing into law, that he had not prepared himself to speak upon it. From what he had heard from the hon. members who had spoken, it seemed that there had been a vast amount of wrong done by everybody mentioned in the matter, and yet nobody was to be punished except the public, and Mr. Duncan was to be rewarded. He believed that Ministers had their own reasons for reinstating Mr. Duncan, and that there had been a compact between them and the heads of the Roman Catholic Church, by which in return for the reinstatement the support of that body was promised to the Government at the next general election. He objected to the bill because it put Mr. Duncan in a better position than he would have occupied had he remained in office. Mr. TERRY could not look up...

THE "FLANEUR" ON THE PRIZE ESSAY. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 20 January 1869

THE " FLANEUR " ON THE PRIZE ESSAY.         THE " Flaneur in Sydney " discourses very pleasantly on his chances of winning the prize essay on the land question. His imagination has taken fire at the thought of unaccustomed wealth—he has already touched the golden guineas, and revelled in all the delicacies of the cafés. We wish him all success—wit, to win his prize, and wisdom to—keep it. EVER since I saw the advertisement offering £100 as a prize for the best essay on the land question, I had felt an inclination to try my hand on it. There were many reasons for this, of which I only need mention three—I have theories of my own, entirely new, about the public lands ; I am ambitious of literary distinction ; and I want £100. The difficulty in the way has hitherto been this—I didn't know the politics of the advertisers. It was impossible for me to understand what kind of essay they wanted-whether ultra-pastoral, extremely free-select...

THE WAR IN NEW ZEALAND. (From the Olago Daily Times, Jan. 4.) Wellington, Jan. 2. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 20 January 1869

THE WAR IN NEW" ZEALAND. (From the Otago Daily Times, Jan. 4. ) Wellington, Jan. 2. Cobb's coach arrived late last night from Wanganui. Captain Finnimore and Lieu- tenant Bryce's cavalry, 100 strong, were out reconnoitreing on the 26th. They observed a palisading recently erceted at Nukumaru, and fired at it from a distance. The fire being returned but desultorily, they thought that it was occupied by only a few Hau-haus. They accordingly attacked it at close quarters, when a heavy fire was returned. Sergeant Maxwell was killed, and five Hau-haus, on climbing the palisades from the inside, were picked off by our men. A portion of the Hau-haus then left the pa, and occupied patches of bush on the line of retreat taken by the cavalry. No further casualties, how- ever , took place on our side. The cavalry have had their pay stopped in consequence of disobedience to Colonel Lyon's orders. Captain Finnimore and Lieutenant Bryce are under arrest for disobedience. 7.35 p.m. The cavalry wer...

GENERAL NEWS. RABBIT SHOOTING EXTRAORDINARY.—The following letter signed " W.

I certainly disliked the manner in which the request was made to me, but as a loyal sub- ject of our Most Gracious Queen, I could not refuse, on that account, her son a day's sport. I expressed myself in some such way to a neighbour, who thereupon without my knowledge wrote to the Colonial Secretary(the Hon. Henry Parkes) recommending the Go-...
