MISCELLANEOUS EXTRACTS. (From the English Papers.) [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 27 January 1869

MISCELLANEOUS EXTRACTS. (From the English Papers.) A STRANGE and horrible series of crimes is reported from Switzerland. A young woman, acting professionally as a nurse, is accused of having- poisoned from time to time nine patients who had been committed to her care. What renders the matter more remarkable is that there seems to be a total absence of motive for the crimes. In no case has she robbed her victims, nor has she inherited property from any of them. Moreover, she is said to be of a respect- able family, and to bo possessed of some independent means. She is about thirty-five years of age, and spent some time in a training school for nurses at Lausanne. She was for some time afterwards sojourning at Vevey, in an establishment presided over by an eminent oculist, to whom she complained that one of her eyes was powerless. He was unable to   discover any cause of this partial blind- ness, and at length satisfied himself by an experiment that she had been de- ceivi...

TUBE WELLS. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 27 January 1869

TUBE WELLS. WE have not heard as yet of many ex- periments with the tube well in Austra- lia, although this is just the sort of season in which they ought to be most valuable. Sinking wells in the ordi- nary manner, with pick, shovel, and windlass, is slow and expensive work. Still, even by these means flocks of sheep have been saved in parts of the interior, where the long continuance of drought had caused the failure of all supplies of surface water. The great level parched-up clay plains have a most unpromising appearance ; but when a search becomes unavoidable, it is surprising how readily water is some- times to be reached on them. This bed or stratum of clay, which becomes so dusty and bare of vegetation after a few months of hot weather, looking as if there was not a particle of moisture near, either above or below ground, is in few places very thick, that is to say, more than 20ft. to 100ft. or so, and beneath this there are usually to be found springs, more or less strong. ...

ANOTHER ELECTRICAI. WONDER. — We (Australasian) referred last week to an extraordinary method of employ- ing electricity, which a learned doctor in Europe believed himself to be on the eve of discovering, viz., the develop- ment of human faculties, physical, and mental, by galvanic agency. We have since noticed that the American Artisan refers to another discovery in electrical manipulation, which, if more readily credible to the ordinary intellect, is really scarcely loss marvellous. A cor- respondent of the abovo journal alludes to the invention in the following terms :-" Among the many wonderful evidences of the ingenuity of mankind   is the electrical machine for setting   and clisv perfect^ , contain1.;. .. 01* 31',2a whole, o " distvib; ;: j,nine mi" truly v that tl1 By mi AUSTRALIAN MERCANTILE REGIS- TRY AND AGENCY COMPANY,   by fajistration of and procuring situa nr,,,y iG Unemployed of the MERCAN {.

NARANDERA. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 27 January 1869

NARANDERA. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] WE have had one or two slight showers since my last, but beyond clearing the atmosphere for a short time they have been of little or no benefit. I think that lowering the tem-   perature is about the only advantage we on the frontage can expect from any rain which may fall during this month. The after heat is sure to be too great to allow any grass to grow, we musk hope and pray for heavy rains in March, to enable the stock, already vory poor, to exist through the winter. Of course heavy rains such as would fill creeks and dams now dry, upon the back country would be of immense advantage to that now miser ably dry locality. Some time since I imagined that all the back stock had found their way to the river for water, but such was not the case, as scores are even now making their way in daily. Horses can be seen as far as the eye can reach, some walking, but more crawling in in single file for water. Numbers of them are miserably ...

Parliament of New South Wales. LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY. THURSDAY, JANUARY 21ST. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 27 January 1869

Parliament of New South Wales. LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY. THURSDAY, JANUARY 21ST.     MINISTERS, in answer to questions, said that   there was £3734 unexpended of the trial   survey vote, and steps were taken for a     survey from Bathurst to Orange, but not   from Murrurundi towards Armidale ; that the only contract yet taken for the Aberdeen Bridge was for the iron work, which was expected from England in June next ; and that Wellington and Co. had appealed to the Government against the decision of the Grenfell magistrate in a case of water right, and the Western Gold-fields Commissioner   had been ordered to report. A petition from Wagga, in favour of a vine disease prevention bill, was presented by Mr. Graham.     A message from the Governor was received,     recommending a month's advance, in order     t...

GENERAL NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 27 January 1869

GENERAL NEWS. Mr. Landale, member of the New South Wales Legislature, accompanied a deputa- tion from Echuca to Melbourne to ask for a   reduction of the rates charged by the railway for the carriage of sheep. Mr. Jones said he   was unable to comply with the request of the deputation till more trucks were manu-   factured, as the department was unable to carry all the sheep offering.—Empire's Tele- gram. THE Bathurst correspondent of the Herald   says: " We were visited yesterday (Thurs- day) with continuous thunder showers, which stopped telegraphic communication. The lightning was very dangerous. At 7 o'clock in the morning the residence of the Rev. Mr. Olden, Wesleyan minister, was struck. The electric fluid passed through the roof, entered the bedroom, and struck Mrs. Olden, burning her most severely in one of the legs. She was thrown down with the violence of the shock, and remained insensible for some time ; she recovered, h...

DISEASE IN GRAPE VINES. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 27 January 1869

DISEASE IN GRAPE. VINES.       IN the Legislative Assembly on Friday, the hon and learned member for the Lachlan (Mr. Martin) announced that he had received a petition from the Mayor of Albury, as chairman of a public meeting held in that town in reference to the bill recently introduced by Mr. Nowlan for the prevention of the disease in grape vines known as Oidium Tuckeri. This petition was sent by telegraph, but it   could not be received, because it was not in accordance with the standing order, which provides that signatures to petitions shall be originals, written by the persons whose names are attached to such petitions. The petitioners adopted this mode of mailing known their objection to the bill, fearing that any other means of communication would be too slow to be effectual. The Speaker said he was of opinion that the bill of Mr. Nowlan was of a nature re- quiring that it should be introduced in com- mittee. It would be n...

ROBBERY OF THE GYMPIE MAIL. PARTICULARS OF MR. W. S. KING'S PLUCKY CONDUCT. (From the Empire.) [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 27 January 1869

ROBBERY OF THE GYMPIE MAIL. PARTICULARS OF MR. W. S. KING'S   PLUCKY CONDUCT. (From the Empire.)   IT seems that Mr. W. S. King, who is a godson of Bishop Selwyn, who used to pride himsolf in his " Muscular Christianity," had under his charge the halves of bank notes   representing £2000, when the Gympie and Brisbane mail was stuck up recently. The Gympie Times contains some further par-', ticulars of the occurrence which will be read with interest. When the bushrangers' summons was   uttered, Mr. W. Selwyn King drew a   Tranter's revolver, and reaching in front of the passengers on his right hand, fired at the only bushranger he could see,, which was the shorter man. At this moment Mr. Walker   rose in his seat, and his body touching against Mr. King's arm, rather diverted the aim ; but Mr.'King was of the opinion that, lie hit the man he fired at on the right shoul- der. The latter immediately fell back,...

THE LONDON WOOL SALES. Willans, Overbury, and Co.'s Report. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 27 January 1869

THE LONDON WOOL SALES.   Willans, Overbury, and Co.s Report. THe current series of sales opened on the 26th ult. with a large attendance of home and foreign buyers, and brisk competition for all descriptions of wool. A slight advance, which may be particularised as ½d on greasy, and ½d to 1d on washed and scoured parcels, was at once established. Since the commence- ment, biddings have day by day shown in- creased animation, and at present the advance on Port Phillips must be quoted at about 1½d, and on Capes, both scoured and fleece, 1d to 1½d per lb. The improvement on Sydney's,   however, scarcely exceeds ½d. In consequence of the irregularity in price which marked the greater portion of the last series, bids were frequently made and lots either sold or withdrawn at rates altogether below the then average market value, and upon such parcels the improvement is doubt- less much greater than that mentioned above, but the general advance cannot be quoted at ...

THE TURF CAREER OF THE MARQUIS OF HASTINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 27 January 1869

THE TURF CAREER OF THE MARQUIS     OF HASTINGS.       " The Earl's year " has reached a sad climax in the death of its leading actor. The Spider and the Fly drama is ended. That poor   coronetted youth who had crowded into six years more. Corinthian excitement, and weightier turf cares, than many " fast men " know in a lifetime, has laid down his weary load. He was only 26 in July, and he had frittered away two fine family ostates. Betting is said to be the touchstone of the Englishman's sincerity, but with the marquis, a craving for the odds had really become a disease. He worshipped chance with all the ardour of a fanatic. His wits were, he con-   sidered, worth to him in the betting-ring at least £20,000 a year, and ho sometimes threaded his way through the mazes of trials and, public running with all tho sagacity of a wizard. His public coups wore often so brilliant that it was hardly to b...

WOOL, STOCK, AND STATION IMPORTS. SYDNEY. MESSRS. MORT AND CO.'S RFPORTS. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 27 January 1869

WOOL, STOCK, AND STATION IMPORTS. SYDNEY. MESSRS. MORT AND CO.'S REPORT.   WOOL.—We are glad to report that the sales this week have shown a marked improve-   ment in this market. The attendance at our auction salo was good, the demand more active, and prices realised showed an advance on late quotations. Greasy wools are also more saleable, and parcels of fair quality and free of seed command good attention. SHEEPSKINS.— The supply moderately good, and prices up to late quotations. Skins of full growth and free of seed are in demand, at an advance of one halfpenny per lb. on late rates. We sold 10,000 skins at from 2½d to 4¾d per lb. ; scoured skins, at 8¾d ; pelts, 1d. TALLOW.—In moderate supply. Prices have declined, consequent upon the town trade being fully supplied, andexporters not likely to ship at present high rates of freight without a good margin for profit. We sold about 60 casks of tallow. Prices ranged—Inferior, 31/ 15s ; beef, 34/ 10s to 35/ ...

ETRERSHANK, EAGLESTONE, & Co's. REPORT. FAT CATTLE.—The number brought forward during the week has rather exceeded the requirements of the trade. The quality generally was of a medium description, with a small proportion good, but none. really prime ; and although sales were not quite so brisk, the figures realised were about equal to last week's rates. We quote good beef—17s 6d to 20s per 100 lbs. FAT SHEEP.—The supply to hand was in excess of the demand, and principally of medium quality. Sales were mostly effected at a slight reduction, excepting for good lots, which fully maintained late quotations. Best wethers realised 8s 6d to 9s 6d. STORE CATTLE.—In this description of stock, business is almost at a standstill, and while the drought continues, no improve- ment need be looked for. Southward, with the exception of small lots, no trans-   actions are reported ; and inquiries are more limited, owing to extensive bush fires in Gipps Land and other parts of Vi...

GOLDSBROUCH, BURT, & Co.'s REPORT.   FAT CATTLE.—The number submitted to the trade this week, amounted to 750 head, and with the exception of two small lots, consisted of second and inferior quality. Prices would certainly have advanced here if not for the over supply of mutton, which has a tendency to keep the cattle market steady. We quote best bullocks, from 6/ to 7/ ; second ditto, from 4/ 10s to 6/. We sold a draft of Mr. Weston's, of Illawarra, at quotations. FAT SHEEP.—A heavy supply, and prices have fallen, fully 1s per head on prime lots, and other sorts from 1s 6d to 2s. The fall is attributable to two cases pri- marily, opposition in the carcase trade, and the quality of bad sheep pouring in. We quote prime wedders, worth 8s 6d ; second ditto, 7s 6d. We sold this week 560 (Messrs. Christian's) at quotations ; also 1130 (Messrs. Richardson Bro.'s,) of Murrawonbie.   STORE STOCK AND STATIONS. — Nothing   doing.   W...

MUDGEE. MESSRS. GROSSING AND COX'S REPORT. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 27 January 1869

MUDGEE. MESSRS. GROSSING AND COX'S REPORT. FAT CATTLE.—For the past week, the supply to Land Las barely met the requirements of the trade, and comprised from inferior to fair quality. Good and prime become scarcer and scarcer, as the drought con- continues ; and any such having long distances to travel, become so much cut- up, as to make them little beyond stores by the time they arrive for market. "We quote best pens bullocks—112s to 130s ; cows, 100s to 110s ; medium mixed lots, 90s. Our sales included 64 head at an average 4/ 15s. FAT SHEEP.—A large supply came forward, the whole of which were from inferior to very medium quality, and being unsuitable for requirements were principally turned out unsold, owners not caring to accept prices offered. Good and prime are en- quired for, and meet with ready sale. Quotations, 56lbs prime, 9s. Medium and inferior, 5s to 6s 6d. We sold 100 from 6s 6d to 7s. January 19, 1869.

MELBOURNE.   THE LONDON AND AUSTRALIAN AGENCY CORPORATION (LIMITED) REPORT : WOOL.—Our sale of the 14th inst. was re- markable for the animation that pervaded     it. All the lots offered were competed for   very spiritedly, and of the total catalogue   brought forward, amounting to 1279 bales,   we succeeded in selling by public auction     and private contract over 1000 bales at   very satisfactory prices. We notice that   a strong desire exists on the part of pur-   chasers to complete orders, and also on the   part of the merchants for the purpose of   remittances. We sold greasy from 4½d   to 9d per lb. ; scoured, 14d to 18d per lb, ;   and for fleece, from 10d to 17d, No first-   class fleece was offered.

DALMAUOY CAMPBELL AND CO.'S REPORT.   FAT CATTLE.—To-day's market consisted of     1,180 head, being the week's supply. The   quality of the majority of the lots offered   was principally second rate, with a con- siderable portion of them inferior, which     were little better than stores, the best   description being from Gipps Land. There   was a large, attendance of town and country     buyers, and sales the commencement   were very brisk, at an advance of from 10s to 15s per head ; but later in the day bid- dings were very dull, and this advance was   not supported—the market closing at last week's currencies. We quote best bullocks, from 8/ 10s to 9/ 5s ; second, 6/ 10s to 71/ 10s ; inferior, 4/ to 5/. Cows, (very few in) principally inferior, which made from 3/ to 5/ 10s. We have sold 217 for Mr. Wm.

The opening sales were; exceedingly dull, at a reduction of about 20s a head, but latterly the biddings be- came more animated, and prices improved though at the close of the market they were' still 10s under last week's rates.

PRIZE OF ' ONE HUNDRED GUINEAS FOR THE   BEST ESSSAY 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 peoplo, it seems desirable that some attempt should be made to sift these various and often conflicting opinions     —to separate the true from...

" This is true liberty, when freeborn man, Having to advise the public, may speak free."     MILTON. WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 27, 1869. IT would be very difficult, probably, at present, in the Murrumbidgee district, to impress a squatter of the place and period with the idea that, he should reall be very grateful to the drought. We can quite imagine cases in which it would be not only very cruel, but very dangerous, to suggest anything of the kind, at any rate within kicking distance, and we have no intention of making the experiment. An affliction which has desolated whole districts, and converted green pastures into blackened deserts, is not "a matter for jesting, even in the MARK TAPMSY vein of humorous philosophy—that it is creditable to be jolly under difficulties. But it is possible to be under oblige- tions for instruction, even whilo smart ing under a keen sense of injury. It is wise, says tho old proverb, to. learn from an enemy; and there are teachers, ...
