DALMAHOY CAMPBELL AND CO.'S REPORT. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 10 February 1869

DALMAHOY CAMPBELL AND CO.'S REPORT. FAT CATTLE.—To-day's sales comprised 1082 head, being the supply for the week. A large portion of them were from good to prime quality, the best lot being Mr. A. Murray's, from Colac, which, although prime, were light weights, but averaged 9/13s 6d for bullocks, and 6/ 19s 3d for   cows. There was a fair attendance of the town trade, but very few country buyers were present ; nevertheless, competition was very brisk, and a further advance of from 10s to 15s per head over last week's rates took place upon all descriptions. We quote best bullocks from 9/ 10s to 11/ ; second, 7/ to 8/ ; inferior, 4/ 10s to 6/ ; best cows, 6/10s to 7/10s ; second, 5/ to   6/ ; inferior, from 3/ to 4/. FAT SHEEP.—13,320 were yarded for the week. This number being only about equal to the requirements of trade, the whole were cleared out early in the day at an advance of from 1s to 1s 6d, and in some instances about 2s per head, which was caused...

BALLARAT LIVE STOCK MARKET. MESSRS NORMAN R. MACLEOD AND CO.'s REPORT:— [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 10 February 1869

BALLARAT LIVE STOCK MARKET. MESSRS NORMAN R. MACLEOD AND CO.'S   REPORT :- FAT CATTLE.—The number to hand this week was 440 head. About half were ex- cellent beef, and of the balance a good many were poor stores. There was a fair attendance of buyers, and lively compete- tion for the best cattle, at an advance of 10s to 15s a head on last week's prices ; but second and inferior quality were dull of sale, and without any improvement. Quotations-Best pens bullocks, 7s 10s to 9/10s ; second, 6/ to 7/ ; inferior, 3/10s to 5/10s. Averages of principal lots—   Thompsons bullocks 8/4s, cows, 6/6s 2d ;     Tahara, bullocks 7/ 12s 6d ; cows, 6/ 18s 5d ; Oddie's bullocks, 5/10s 7d ; Urqu-   hart's bullocks, 4/. We sold a few head from the North Corack, at quotations. FAT SHEEP. —13,545 were penned, the quality of the greater part of which was of a very low class, and only suitable for the pot. Good wethers were scarce, and those...

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

PRIZE OF ONE HUNDKED GUINEAS FOR THE BEST ESSAY   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 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 happ...

Wagga Wagga Advertiser "This is true liberty, when freeborn men, Having to advise the public, may speak free." MILTON. WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY. 10, 1869. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 10 February 1869

Wagga Wagga Advertiser   " This is true liberty, when freeborn men, Having to advise the public, may speak free." MILTON. WEDNESDAY. FEBRUARY. 10, 1869. ANOTHER stage has been reached in the somewhat tedious task of elucidating the great Kiama mystery. With the per- tinacity which, whether for good or evil, generally distinguishes his parlia- mentary conduct, our representative, Mr. MACLEAY, has hold manfully to his self-imposed duty of clearing the cha- racter of the colony from the imputa- tions of Mr. PARKES. How far he has been successful, or otherwise, will be seen hereafter ; but there can be no question of the patient but persevering determination he has shown in carry ing out his patriotic purpose of probing this very suspicious matter to the bottom. Since the day when, in the face of an apparently omnipotent Government, and in the full fever of the public excitement created by Mr. PARKES'S extraordinary statements, be     first dispute...

He ts easy to domestikate, yielding gracefully to ordinary kindness, and never deserting tlioso who show him acts of kindness. Lot the learned and polite pull hair az much az they pleases about the ansestral claims ov the cook roach, it iz our buzzinoss and dooty as bug scrutinizer, to show the critter up az we find him, without caring- hoo his grandfather and grandmother aktually was. There iz no mistaking the fakt that lie iz one of a very numerous family, and that hiz late attachment to the homo of his boyhood speaks louder .than thunder for hiz affectionate and unadulterated natur. He don't leave the place he wuz born at upon the slighest provocation, like a giddy and vagrant flea, or the ferocious bed-bug, and until death (or some vile pouder the invenshun of man) knocks at hiz door, he and his brothers with sisters may be seen with the naked eye, ever and anon cal...

REMARKABLE INSTANCES OF PRESENCE OF MIND. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 13 February 1869

REMARKABLE INSTANCES OF PRESENCE OF MIND. BY MAlUC TWAIN. THE steamer Ajax encountered a ter rible storm on her clown trip from San Francisco to the Sandwich Islands. It tore lier light spars and rigging1 all to shreds and splinters, upset all furniture that could be upset, and spilled passengers around, and knocked them hither and thither with perfect loosenoss. For forty-eight hours no table could bo set, and every body had to eat as best they might tinder the circumstances. Most of the party went hungry, though, and at tended to their praying. But there ?was one set of " seven-up" players, who nailed a card-table to the flooi", and stuck to their game through thick and thin. Captain F , of a great banking-house in San Francisco, a man of groat coolness and presence of mind, was of this party. One night, the storm suddenly culminated in a climax of unparalleled fury; the 'vessel "went down on her beam ends, and everything let go with a crash passengers, tables, cards, bottles ever...

NEWSPAPERS IN MADRID. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 13 February 1869

NEWSPAPERS IN MADRID. Sncn a press as we have hero in Madrid, says a letter from that city, would baffle the conception, of news paper readers and writers in any other country. There cannot bo less than two scores of daily papers, and ho who has seen one has seen them all. broader sheets, the Epoca, Politica, Diario, Espanol, and ever so many others, are only to be had by subscrip tion. They are never soiled by the dirty fingers of tho itinerant news vendor. The Impartial, the widely sproad Gorrespondencia, together with the Cascabcl, the Gil Bias, and other specimens of Spanish humour, are to be bought for infinitesimally small coppers at all tho street corners. The Ibtria, which calls itself " the forlorn hope of all Liberalism," issues a large edition for tho gods and a small one for mere mortals. It is astonishing to seo how little sense or information tho most industrious man can manage to squeeze from tho whole lot of Spanish papers, large or small. Madrid papers in a general ...

ACTIVITY OF THE PRESS. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 13 February 1869

ACTIVITY OF THE PRESS. THE anneuncemonts.of new newspapers almost take one's breath away. On Wednesday the Morning Summary ap peared on toned paper. It is odited by Mr. Alpass, a writer who won his spars on the Morning Chronicle. This is to be followed at the commencement of the Session, I believe, by a halfpenny evening to be called the Echo. Messrs. Cassel, Petter, and G-alpin are at the bottom of this, and the prospectus they have issued reads like a bit of the Liturgy. " Honest and fearless in its comments upon politics and statesmen, the Echo will endeavour to promote the national welfare rather than the success of a particular faction. Guided by an earnest belief in the pro gress of humanity, and seeking to ad vance the interests of the people, the Echo will strive to secure peace, to en force economy, and to uphold a national policy enlightened by universal educa tion." And all that for a halfpenny ! But I hoar that they are prepared to spend £40,000 upon their speculation ; ...

SIR,—In common with others, I have perused   the recent articles published in your columns and those of your contemporary on the subject of Police Magistrates, The unhappy ten- dencies of the editor of the Express are too well understood here (unfortunately for us) to justify the people of Wagga Wagga in credit- ing him with ingenuousness, magnanimity, or a desire for the advancement of public inte- rests, in anything he pens. He views all great questions through a distorted medium. He has ever been the persistent opponent of the loading interests of the town and district, the uncompromising enemy of our advance- ment. He endeavoured by every...

DAY OF HUMILIATION AND PRAYER. To the Editor of the W. W. Advertiser.     SIR,—An advertisement, without signature,   appears in the Express of Wednesday last,   notifying that " Whereas the 13th February   has been appointed a day of Humiliation and Prayer, all places of business in the town will be closed by mutual consent.   This, I fancy, is an unauthorised advertise- ment ; (a " dummy," as such insertions are professionally tonned,) or the person princi-   pally interested would have appended his name. Under any circumstances, it is, I think, an affront to the people in business here, us it infers that we were not disposed like decent, right-thinking, orderly people to comply with the terms of a proclamation under consti- tutional authority, and that we had doubts   as to the propriety of " humbling " ourselves for a purpose so solemn and serious. Anyone would suppose that we...

SYDNEY GOSSIP. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] February 10. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 13 February 1869

SYDNEY GOSSIP.   [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] February 10. WHETHER the break up of the excessive and protracted drought, (which by the way most inopportunely anticipates the day of humilia- tion) or the approaching struggle in the Assembly to determine the momentous Ques- tion of Mr. Parlies's voracity, or the expccted arrival of his Royal Highness the Duke of Edinburgh, whether any or all of these causes are operating ill producing that state of sus- pended animation and general blankness of demeanour which are impressed on every one   you meet, is a conjecture too wearisome to be entertained by your very not well corres- pondent in such sultry, vapoury-bath-ish, weather as the present. But the fact is that things never looked as dull as they now do in the metropolis, and they certainly do not belie their appearance. Of social gossip there is absolutely nothing to tell. And you may realise the state of our pecuniary and intel- lectual depression from a si...

MELBOURNE MEMS. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] Melbourne, 7th February. PERHAPS the most important event of the past week has been the meeting of the Central Board of Health, for the purpose of consider- ing the measures taken against the spread of the epidemic which has made its appear- ance in the city. It seems impossible to say whether it be small-pox or not. Doctors dis- agree, and opinions are about equally divided. However, a mania for furious vaccination has set in, and houses of the principal public vaccinators are besieged with terrified appli- cants. The Board have insisted upon the following precautionary measures :-" House to house vaccination in any infected locality ; disinfection of clothes and bedding ; isolation of all cases as they occur ; vaccination of children and officers of the Industrial Schools ; removal (when possible) of all infected persons to a place appointed for treatment." They also recommended vacci- nation of all people not successfully vacci- nated...

Parliament of New South Wales LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY. TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 9. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 13 February 1869

Parliament of New South Wales LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY. TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 9. Mr. R. STEWART moved that, on Tuesday   next, the House would go into committee, to consider the propriety of compensating     country members of future Parliaments, by paying them 20s. a day each during the session. He admitted that the payment of members was opposed to English principles, under which it was understood that the     honour of representing one's fellow-country- men was quite sufficient to compensate for any expenses. But, notwithstanding this feeling, the English people had adopted the principle of the payment of members in the case of the Legislatures, of the American colonies, prior to their separation. After their separation from England, the payment of members had been kept up by the Congress in the United States ; and to show that these States wore worthy of being taken as an ex- ample for us, he quoted from a recent speech, o...
