THE IRISH CHURCH [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 10 February 1869

THE IRISH CHURCH The dean of Dromore wrote to the Times to deny that the Irish. Deans had got a bit too much money from the Irish Church. His Reverence forgot to say that— The Dean of Ferns is a Vegetarian. The Dean of Tuam hasn't got any that he calls " Meum," as it's all Tuam. The Dean of Elphin lives like a fairy. The Dean of Conner is a strict e- Conner-mist. But of all deans give us, at all events at luncheon, Sar-dines, when one may fairly say, on no dine pres.

SOMETHING FOR THE LADIES. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 10 February 1869

SOMETHING FOR THE LADIES. THE Australasian says: We have been permitted to quota the following from a Paris letter addressed to a lady :- " If I were a lady I should be able to go through a long category of new fashions. Toilets, flounces, and fur- belows, and every kind of bib and tucker which helps to turn you out so charming, and which here is now in fall swing for the winter ; but being, as Miss Becker would say, only a man '—what a depth of degradation, what a well of disgrace (vide Tupper, passim), I understand nothing about it, I admire the tout ensemble, and am wisely silent about the details. Every- where I see skirts piled one upon the other, like the flats in your new Grosvenor mansions in Belgravia, a different colour for each different story. Then come copings of lace and gur- goyles of ribbons, and ends of all sorts, in fact, ' no end ' of ends, falling from the waistband, and hang- ing down behind. " Large crinolines have reached their fall size and burst, bat the sma...

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 10 February 1869

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. THE LATE RAINS.—From advices received, we regret to learn that general benefit has   not been the result of the great fall of rain which deluged Wagga Wagga and its imme- diate vicinity. The course of the rain-fall appears to have been very eccentric. A cor- respondent informs us that the run of water, down the falls of Eunonyahreenyah run 0n the Junee road, on both sides of the range,   was very great, and that there is a good spring   in the grass, which consists principally of that description known as summer grass. Further north the dams on the Junee run were filled, as also were the large tank and   waterholes at Mrs. Dacey's, Junee, whilst the dam on the North Junee run, only three miles distant on the same watercourse, did not re- ceive more than a trifling addition of water. The Houlaghan's Creek station, some seven miles further on, obtained no water ; and the watercourse from there is quite dry, whilst...

DAY OF HUMILIATION AND PRAYER. (From Supplement to Government Gazette of 5th February.) PROCLAMATION. By his Excellency the Right Honorable Somerset Richard, Earl of Belmore, a member of her Majesty's most honorable Privy Council in Ireland, Governor and Commander-in-Chief of the colony of New South Wales, and Vice-Admiral of the same. Whereas in consideration of the very serious     calamity from which the colony is now suf- fering, by reason of the protracted drought,   it is proper that a day should be set apart on which all persons may unite in humiliation and prayer to Almighty God to obtain, through His Divine Mercy, a mitigation or removal of this calamity. And whereas it is right and expedient that an opportunity should be given to the clergy and ministers of religion of all denominations, all others, her Majesty's subjects in the colony of New South Wales, to observe such a day of humiliation and prayer : Now, therefore, I, the Governo...

No notice will be taken of anonymous communications, and no rejected communication will be returned.   THE SMALL DEBTS BILL.     (To the Editor of the W. W. Advertiser.) SIR,—Mr. Byrnes deserves the gratitude of the community for the liberal measure he has brought before the House, with a view to lessen the expenses of law in civil actions, and increase the operation of justice. His proposition to extend the jurisdiction of Courts of Petty Sessions in their small debts jurisdiction, from ten to thirty pounds, and, by consent, to fifty, is a com- prehensive and progressive measure, and calculated to effect an immense amount of good. It speaks well for the common sense of our representatives, that the proposed Bill was so warmly and favourably received. It is, however, amusing to observe how " th...

Parliament of New South Wales LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY. FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 5. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 10 February 1869

Parliament of New South Wales LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY. FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 5.   In Committee of the Whole, and on the motion of Mr. Wilson, a resolution was agreed to, affirming the expediency of introducing a bill to limit the number of public works, in certain districts. The St. Andrew's-Cathedral Close Bill was road a third time, after a division of 28 to 4. Mr. S. BROWN moved,—" That on Friday next the House would resolve itself into Committee of the whole to consider a grant of £8000 to the Municipality of Cook, to compensate for the exemption of the Uni- versity and Colleges from taxation." He explained that the Municipality when first established was in possession of the taxes from the above institutions, and that subse- quently the Legislature, by Apt, exempted these institutions from taxation. Thus, the Municipality had not, only lost the taxation, but also the Government aid that would   have been received in a proportionate   amount. &...

AMERICA. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 10 February 1869

AMERICA. General Grant has been on a visit to Boston and returned to-day to Washington. Cuba dates to the 2nd say that Santiago   was besieged closely by the rebels, and the aqueducts destroyed. Dissensions are reported among the leaders of the insurgents. Sixty leaders have been brought to Havana. Much destitution is reported among the revolutionists.

Accounts from the revolutionists, however, claim a complete victory over the Govern- ment forces.           The Telegraph says the anti repudiation resolution in the American House of Repre- sentatives leaves the greenback payment question ...

A SINGULAR TRAGEDY AT SEA. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 10 February 1869

A SINGULAR TRAGEDY AT SEA. IN February last the Peruvian barque Cyaltil, with a number of Chinese coolies on board, was taken by the Chinamen, who murdered the white men, then sailed west by guess, arrived at the Ochotsk Sea, and finally got to Hokodadi, Japan. The Honolulu Adver- tiser gives the following account of the affair :- " By the William Butch, Captain E. F. Nye, from the Ochotsk Sea, we have accounts of the mutiny at sea of some Chinaman, off   the coast of Peru, and the horrid butchery of the officers and crew of the ship. The par- ticulars, as far as Captain Nye learned them, are as follows :- About the beginning of February last, a a Peruvian barque left Callao for a port dis- tant only two day's sail, having on board fifty Chinese (who had been engaged for a plantation in that neighbourhood), and ricer and other supplies for the plantation. The   owner of the barque, with his Chinese ser-   vant, were passengers, and there was al...

TERRIBLE TRAGEDY IN SAN FRANCISCO. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 10 February 1869

TERRIBLE TRAGEDY IN SAN FRANCISCO. A terrible tragedy was enacted in San   Francisco on the 5th November, by a young man named Laurentz Jacobson, a native of Denmark. He lived some time as an       employee in the house off a man named     M'Donald, during which time he conceived   a violent passion for the latter's daughter, a   girl fourteen years of age. She was abeauti- ful child, amiable and sweet in disposition, the idol of her parents, and beloved by all who knew her. She was an only daughter     the sister of two little boys who in the absence of their mother and father, found in Rachel a loving guide, and protector. She     disliked Jacobson's attentions to her and   complained of them to her parents, who in a friendly manner, told the suitor to look for other lodgings, which he did, but still con- tinued to...

SMALL POX IN SAN FRANCISCO. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 10 February 1869

SMALL POX IN SAN FRANCISCO.   The San Francisco Times of the 23rd November says, in reference to the small   pox : " During the past week there were fourteen deaths in this city from small pox six less than the week previous. There were seventy-eight eases of the disease reported at the Health Office during the week ; fifteen of which were on Friday and fourteen on Satur- day. A case was reported, last Saturday, by the husband of a woman who had been taken down, suddenly. He said he had been married two or three weeks, and that if people, found out that his wife was sick with the small pox, his business would be ruined, and he would rather she would go to the Pest House.         A week later the same paper reports as follows :-         The epidemic is increasing rapidly. Last   week a hundred and forty casus were re- ported," and twenty-nine ...

WOOL, STOCK, AND STATION REPORTS. SYDNEY. MESSRS. MORT AND CO.'S REPORT. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 10 February 1869

WOOL, STOCK, AND STATION   REPORTS.   SYDNEY. MESSES. MORT AND CO.'S REPORT. WOOL.—The market this week has been rather less active, as nearly all the pur- chases for May sales have been completed, and we cannot look for any change until after the arrival of the next overland mail. Prices remain about the same as have ruled for the last few weeks. The quantity of greasy wool in the market and in the hands of scourers tends to keep down prices materially. We sold, on Thursday, fleece at 10¾d to 14d ; greasy, 3½d to 6½d ; scoured, 18¾d, SHEEPSKINS were in moderate supply, and prices without alteration. We sold about 7000 skins, at from 3½d to 5½d ; pelts and inferior, 1d to 2½d. February 5th.   BREWSER AND TREBECK'S REPORT :- STATIONS.—There has been a considerable fail of rain in Queensland, and from our advices we believe the same to have been pretty general. We notice an improved disposition to entertain proposals to invest in good cattle stat...

ETTERSHANK, EAGLESTONE, & CO's. REPORT. FAT CATTLE.—We have again to report an excessive supply, a very large proportion of which was inferior, and only suitable for graziers. The quality of the remainder was from medium to good ; these were disposed of at a considerable reduction on late rates. We do not anticipate any im- provement for some little time. Medium to good beef worth 15s per 100lbs. FAT SHEEP.—The supply this week far ex- ceeded the demand. The quality, with the exception of a few small lots, was in- ferior and difficult to dispose of. Sales generally have been dull, and last week's figures were not maintained. We look for some slight improvement, especially for   really good quality sheep, shortly. Quota-   tions—Good quality wethers, 7s 6d to 8s 6d ; second ditto, 4s 6d to 6s. STORE CATTE.—There is no business doing in this description of stock, and we cannot hope for any improvement until a general break in the drought takes place, ...

GOLDSBROUGH, BORT, & Co.'s. REPORT. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 10 February 1869

GOLDSBROUGH, BURT, & CO.'s. REPORT. FAT CATTLE.—A very large supply forward. Prices a shade lower. The majority of the lots offering anything but good, cattle in low condition selling store rates. Prime pens are worth 6/ to 7/ per head. There can be no doubt that good cattle will rule high this winter. We sold this week 180 head for Messrs. Readford Bros. FAT SHEEP.—Market still depressed. The greater portion of the flocks offering are in low condition, which are difficult to sell at store rates. Good sheep are getting scarce, and before long we look forward to high rates. We cannot quote at present best wedders above 8s 6d ; second ditto, 6s 6d ; inferior lots from 2s to 4s. Our sales this week comprise 500 (Dernely's) at 8s ; 650 (Iredale's) at 6s 6d ; and 1000 (Buchanan's) 4s 6d ; and will offer to-mor- row 1,200 (Brown's). STORE STOCK, AND STATIONS.—Not much doing.

MUDGEE. MESSRS. CROSSING AND COX'S REPORT. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 10 February 1869

MUDGEE.   MESSRS. CROSSING AND COX'S REFORT. FAT CATTLE.—The market has been supplied   more heavily this week than for some con- siderable time previously, and prices for medium and inferior qualities have given way considerably, whilst good and prime have suffered but little decline. Great numbers of the stock which have been for-   warded for market for some time past have   been totally unfit for trade requirements,   and it has been only in the absence of   superior quality that such have been   quitted for slaughtering purposes. The   want of quality we attribute in a great measure to the almost total absence of   both feed and water en route for market,   whereby stock starting in fair condition   become upon arrival little more than stores. Best pens bullocks may be quoted 110s to 130s ; best pens cows, 100s to 110s ;   m...

MELBOURNE. THE LONDON AND AUSTRALIAN AGENCY CORPORATION (LIMITED) REPORT [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 10 February 1869

MELBOURNE. THE LONDON AND AUSTRALIAN AGENCY CORPORATION (LIMITED) REPORT : WOOL.—The attendance at our sale on Thursday, was above the average ; sellers expected the recent advices would have had a more favourable effect upon prices, and this caused some to place a higher reserve on their wool ; the advance, how- ever, had been paid by purchasers in anti-   cipation in this market long before the last mail was advised ; the expectation on the part of sellers that prices would farther advance has, therefore, not been realised. We offered a catalogue of 1,356 bales, and succeeded in selling a fair proportion ; and we believe that the owners of the unsold balance will meet the market at our next sale. SHEEPSKINS were well competed for, and sold at further advance upon recent quotations STATIONS.—The only station sale we have to report is the Myrtle Creek station, situated in the Beech worth district of Victoria, the property of Mr. H. Grattan, to Mr. T. Robertson, at satis...
