SELECT POETRY. THE BRACELET. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 3 February 1869
SELECT POETRY. THE BRACELET. PAIR were the heavens when I kissed The bracelet on her taper wrist, Five jacinths and an amethyst ; And, as we lingered, in the height Through purple depths of summer night Shone twinkling points of starry light ; And all things round grew hushed and still, But through the hazel copse a rill Still murmured, and one passionate thrill Of song from some late nightingale, With music mixed of love and wail, Flooded the hollows of the dale. O sunrise dim with mist and clouds ! O head in speechless sorrow bowed ! O golden hair in leaden shroud ! The bird has sought a warmer sky, The copse is felled ; the rill is dry, I sit alone, but, till I die, &nbsp; There still will gleam through tearful mist A bracelet on a taper wrist, Five jacinths and an amethyst. —Good Words, &nbsp; ALFRED J. CHURCH.
THE HUSBAND—VERY LIKE A WAIL. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 3 February 1869
THE HUSBAND—VERY LIKE A WAIL. A HUSBAND, both weary and flat, The morning and all the day long, As often he pensively sat, &nbsp; He uttered the woebegone song : Howl, Howl, Howl, The morning, noon, and night, Growl, Growl, Growl, Is ever my spouse's delight. &nbsp; The wails are both frequent and deep, And peace is all banish'd. Alas ! My refuge is only in sleep, Oh ! why such a mistaken ass ? When wedded, I thought joy was mine, &nbsp; Of having a wife near to cheer, Instead, she has taken to whine, &nbsp; And says that I've taken to beer. I feel most despondent, and lack The spirit to act or to look, And wish I was tied in a sack, &nbsp; And thrown in a very deep brook. Remorse that is constant and strong, The agony sometimes it reaches Proves misery all the day long, All through her wearing the—
THE ERUPTION OF VESUVIUS. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 3 February 1869
THE ERUPTION OF VESUVIUS. A CORRESPONDENT of the Pall Mall Gazette bas been to look at Vesuvius, to see for himself what the eruption of a volcano is like. He finds it suf- ficiently terrible. He went up the mountain and stood upon the lip of the crater, and peeped into the roaring abyss on one side, taking advantage of a strong wind that was driving all the suffocating steam and vapour to the other. He thus describes the scene :- " At the edge of the crater you be hold a scene full of awe and majesty. The suddenness with which you come upon it is quite startling. Going up you neither see nor hear anything. One moment you are clambering up the side of the cone amid profound silence ; the next moment, as your head rises above the crater lip, you encounter a roar and a blaze which make you shrink back a little. The surprise is occasioned, I suppose by the formation of the crater. It is a huge bowl, which comes up to quite a sharp lip, about half a mile in diameter and some hundred yar...
FASHIONS FOR DECEMBER. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 3 February 1869
FASHIONS FOR DECEMBER. The winter fashions appear to have now finally declared themselves. It is evident that robes which promise to be of more brilliant shades than ever, will be either raised far higher than usual or else the skirts will be made much shorter, as a preliminary to the robes a trois or quatre jupes, which we may expect ere long to see introduced. In any case they will be bouffantes behind, and frequently at the sides as well. Velvet mantles, fitting to the shape, and trimmed with fur at the bottom, at the collar, shoulders, and cuffs, with little raffs to correspond, are by far the most fashionable. Other novelties in the way of mantles are of cloth of any shade, trimmed with deep borders of tartan. A light grey mantle of this description, with a trimming of black and white plaid, was worn by the Empress Eugenie at the shooting-party at Compiegne during the visit of the Prince and Princess of Wales. Cha- peaux, half fanchon, half toque, with frontons of feathers, vel...
A MILLIONAIRE'S LIFE. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 3 February 1869
A MILLIONAIRE'S LIFE. THE Paris correspondent of the Morn- ing Post, referring to the late Baron James de Rothschild says :-" He was known amongst us as a man who oc- cupied every day of his life in business ; he was never away from the bank. That round grey head, and those large &nbsp; round eyes, were familiar to every Parisian who had anything to do with commerce, and scarcely a foreigner of any mark passed through Paris for many years past without seeing Baron James de Rothschild. He was par- ticularly known to the aristocracy of England, and on very intimate terms with many of them. Baron Roths- child was known amongst us, too, for his many charitable acts, and as a pur- chaser of pictures and every description of antiquities. His life was scarcely a happy one, unless the absorbing love of money can compensate for every other pleasure. Up to a late date he began his day by ringing for a gentleman to come into his room and read the English newspapers whilst dressing and ...
"WILL THE COMING MAN DRINK WINE?" [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 3 February 1869
" WILL THE COMING MAN DRINK WINE ?" We Have received the following an swers :- 1. Yes, if he can get it. 2. If it's a riddle, I give it up. 3. Not if he knows of it. 4. If he insists on drinking, he had better lay in a hogshead of brandy first as corrective. 5. Ax. (This is decidedly rude.) 6. When he comes I'll try him, and let you know. 7. Not at my expense. 8. Of course he will, like a fish. 9. Provided he can afford to procure a bottle of Perry's painkiller before he ventures. &nbsp; &nbsp; 10. If any one will " shout ;" not otherwise. ;; ,y. 11. Drink it ! I should say so, and eat it too ; and then swallow the bottle if necessary. We have received 923 other replies to this irritating query, but give the above as a sample. If the author really wants to know, let him broach a hogshead, and offer a pint to every man he sees coming, and not go on repeating his exasperating questions. It is too bad in this hot weather.

NARANDERA. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 3 February 1869
NARANDERA. [FROM OUR OWN COURREPONDENT.] &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; STILL nothing, likely to interest or profit your readers to record. The wether, &nbsp; accounts of which I am sure everybody, must be tired of reading, has the same unpromising appearance. I believe a heavy thunderstorm must have fallen last night somewhere about the Lachlan, the clouds in that direction were exceedingly dark and charged with electricity. Our hopes were raised for an hour or two, and there appeared every prob- ability that we should receive our share, but every sign disappeared, and a few drops only waa the portion allotted to this parched up neighbourhood. The sky now is without a cloud, and I need scarcely say our disap- pointment is great. A few skeletons of sheep are crawling to- wards that El Dorado, that wished for country for wasted animals, the mountains. I fear their chance of ever reaching it is but a poor one. An order given by the overseer to a shepherd speaks v...

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; All communications to this journal muxt 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 TURF CLUB COMMITTEE. (To the Editor of the W. W. Advertiser.) SIR,—A letter appeared in your paper some &nbsp; weeks ago, signed " Member," in which the writer requested to be informed why Mr. P. S. Murray and Mr, H. G. Lintott had been " ejected " from the Committee of the Mur- rumbidgee Turf Club. The word ejected, in &nbsp; my opinion, was not the one which ought to have been used, for, as the Committee had &nbsp; ceased to exist, no ejection, could have taken place. Supposing the word omitted had been used, then I could understand the question put by " Member," and think I can satisfy him, and the others to whom he refers, that the omission of the two gentlemen named was altogether unin...
THE DISEASE IN VINES. To the Editor of the Wagga Wagga Advertiser. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 3 February 1869
THE DISEASE IN VINES. &nbsp; To the Editor of the Wagga Wagga, Advertiser. SIR,—The Herald of Thursday last contains a rather " queer " communication from one A. H. Jacob, of Raymond Terrace on the &nbsp; subject of vine disease. This letter begins with " astonishment " and ends with " inor- dinate panics." It is certainly well calculated to produce both. He heralds his letter as " one more voice against the Grape Disease Prevention Bill," and asks in a self-satisfied way " Is legislation reasonable ?" " Is legis- lation necessary ?" " Would legislation be effectual?" Lot us hear what he says in answer to his own questions, with a view to estimate the value of such an advocate's " one more voice " and to condemn him from his own mouth. Legislation is not " reason- able," life say's, because " Disease in Vines " is not " Scab in Sheep "—he seems pretty clear on this point—neither is mutton the produce of grape vines. Mutton, he says, is one of the " staffs " (!) of li...

GENERAL NEWS. The Empire's Melbourne telegram says :- " There are rumours of a split in the Cabinet through disagreements between Mr. Smith, the Attorney-General, and Mr. Jones." IT is reported that Mr. M'Culloch, the Chief Secretary of Victoria, intends to visit England during the present year, and he will, in all probability, be succeeded by Mr. Francis.—Empire. NEW ZEALAND (VIA MELBOURNE.)—The Omeo brought Dunedin dates to the 14th, and Wellington the 10th instant. Bruce, late Customs clerk in Melbourne, had been discharged from custody, the warrant being declared informal ; he had sailed for England. —The pursuers had not captured Te Kooti, who, it was supposed, was making for Maun- gapowatu ; the report of To Want's death was unfounded, and it is now supposed he was not at Ngatapa, when that fortress was taken.—The Wellington papers consider the rebellion crushed.—The Dunedin escort &nbsp; brought 5620 ounces of, gold.—Wanganui papers report that Colonel Lyons was pre- ...

BRIGHAM YOUNG, it is said, is going to re- tire to private life with the profits, 3,000,000 dols. &nbsp; THERE is a talk of cresting a grand monu- ment in Washington, commemorative of the chief actors in the late war. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; A YOUNG Dutch tourist has just blown out his brains in an hotel at Mayence, from having lost considerable sums at the gaming tables of Wiesbaden. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; THE Electric Light is to be used for a new light-house, at Brindisi in the Adriatic.

AMERICA. &nbsp; (From the S. M. Herald.) &nbsp; &nbsp; WE clip the following items of American &nbsp; &nbsp; news up to, the 24th November from tlxe Californian papers ;- MARY E. HILL, a widow, residing on the &nbsp; corner of Tenth and Pine streets, Philadel- &nbsp; phia, was murdered last night by her son-in- law, George S. Twichell, jun. Her body was afterwards thrown from the second- story window. No cause has been assigned &nbsp; for the act. The murderer was arrested, and there is much excitement on account of her relation to her murderer. Mrs. Twichell is in custody on suspicion of participation in the &nbsp; murder of the deceased. &nbsp; A DESPATCH from Westbrook states that a &nbsp; land slide took place at 5 o'clock this morn- ing, just below the Cumberland-Paper Mills, which comprised about forty acres in area, and completely filled the channel of the &nbsp; Pesumscott River, ...
WOOL, STOCK, AND STATION REPORTS. SYDNEY. BREWSTER AND TREBECK'S REPORT:— [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 3 February 1869
WOOL, STOCK, AND STATION REPORTS. &nbsp; SYDNEY. BREWSTER ISD TREBECK'S REPORT :- STATION.—During the past month, some buyers have appeared for compact, paying properties, but there are few of these being offered just now, and those at a higher rate than purchasers are willing to give. Since the last report, we have submitted by auction the Princhester and Ideraway cattle-stations, and Keepit, on the Liver- pool Plains, with 21,000 sheep, but the offers did not reach the vendors' reserves. We hope, however, to sell them shortly by private sale, at a satisfactory price. The very severe drought in our Western districts quite precludes, for the present, any sales of those splendid fattening runs, which are usually considered as the best pastoral investments in the colony. We notice no improvement in the demand for outlying Queensland sheep-stations, al- though the drought has broken up in the northern portions of that colony. CATTLE.—It being quite impossible to travel store ca...
