FRENCH POLISH. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 13 February 1869

FRENCH POLISH.   Aurelien Schall, the well-known con- tributor to the Figaro and several other papers, and M. de Heckeren came to blows at the Cafe Bignon, at the corner of the Boulevard des Italiens and of the Chausée d'Antin. M. da Heckcren imagined that M. Schall had intentionally insulted him. When he entered the café, M. de Heckcren rose and pushed against him purposely. M. Schall, who did not know him, said, " Sir, you make a mistake." "I never make a mistake ; give me your card." " Here it is ; and yours ?" Whereupon a regular encoun- ter took place with fists and sticks. At last the waiters managed to separate the combat- ants. M. de Heckeren left the café after giving his card to the dame du comptoir, and then went out to seek for seconds, and await his adversary. M. d'Ezpeletta and Colonel Count d'Audlou immediately offered their services ; M. Schall selecting M. Laurier and the Count du Bisson. Acting on the advice   of his seconds, M. Schall has...

HORRIBLE ATTEMPT AT SUICIDE. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 13 February 1869

HORRIBLE ATTEMPT' AT SUICIDE.   A SHOCKING attempt, saya the Star of December 10th, to commit suicide was made on board the steamer Ruahine by one of her   passengers named Courtney, on the voyage   fr0m Wellington to this port. Courtney is a native of Ireland, about fifty-five years of age, a Catholic missionary. On the after noon of the 30th ultimo, he complained of a slight indisposition, and retired to his room, and not coming to supper as usual, the sur- geon of the ship went to call him. Finding no response to his knocks at the door his sus- picions were aroused, and the carpenter was ordered to force the door, when a horrid sight presented itself. The unfortunate man was found stretched out senseless, his throat cut from ear to ear in a most mangled manner, and his arm being also deeply perforated with a knife in an attempt to open an artery. He must have died from exhaustion, very soon afterwards had he not been discovered ; however, lu...

INHUMAN PLEASANTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 13 February 1869

INHUMAN 'PLEASANTRY.         MDLLE. ALBINA DI RHONA, the " dancing soubrette," who first raised the Soho play- house to the rank of a recognised theatre, and endowed it with its present title, the   " New Royalty," has lately been exposed to serious peril. Her present calling, it seems, is that of a performer of legerdemain, and at the Salle de l'Orient, Brussels, she has been giving a series of performances, comprising the well-known trick of receiving uninjured   the supposed contents of an apparently loaded pistol. One evening, When the weapon, after it had been handed round for the inspection of the public, was returned into her hands, she inserted her magic wand into the barrel, and felt it come into contact with an unexpected obstacle. She retired, and afterwards reappeared in a state of violent agitation. It subsequently transpired that some scoundrel among the spectators had slipped into the barrel...

STOCK REPORT. ADVERTISER Office, Friday Evening. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 13 February 1869

STOCK REPORT.   ADVERTISER Office, Friday Evening. The complete breaking-up of the drought is   now happily confirmed. Rain is reported from all parts of the colony. The glad news   is telegraphed from all directions, and our day of humiliation and prayer is turned into a day of thanksgiving and rejoicing.   The change in the aspect of the country in this neighbourhood is already marvellous. The grass, to use rather a hackneyed expression, may be seen growing, and there is every prospect of feed being shortly as plentiful as it has lately been scarce. In our last issue we gave a full account of the effect of   the late rains on the back-country stations. This splendid country, which was rapidly being reduced to the condition of a desert, is again, restored to use and fertility, and it is to be hoped that the energy and good management which are said to characterise many of the squatters in that part of the country will...

SYDNEY. THOMAS DAWSON'S REPORT.   FAT CATTLE. — Market much, improved. Closing prices show an increase of 10s per head 0n last quotations, and an upward tendency.

Advertising [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 13 February 1869

PRIZE OF ONE HUNDRED 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 tho 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 puss 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 ...

Wagga Wagga Advertiser. "This is true liberty, when freeborn men, Having to advise the public, may speak free." MILTON. SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 13, 1869. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 13 February 1869

This is true liberty, when freeborn men,   Having to advise the public, may speak free." MILTON.   SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 13, 1869. It is the misfortune of some people to be always misunderstood. No one, they   say, properly appreciates either their work, or the motives for their work. Society is in a conspiracy against them, and persists in calling by very hard names, and sometimes in treating with very hard measure, virtues which it is too blind to recognise, and idio- syncrasies which it is too stupid to understand. A late visitor to Cockatoo declares, in the columns of a Sydney contemporary, that he had no idea be- fore visiting that very " tight little island " what an immense amount not only of unappreciated but of perse- cuted goodness there was yet in the world. It gave him, he says, new views of humanity, and especially of that maligned, ill-used, persecuted and prosecuted section of it which he now saw for the first time in its true cha- ...

TELEGRAPHIC INTELLIGENCE. SYDNEY. Herald Office,             February 12, 9 p.m. IT has been raining steadily since Wed-   nesday. A heavy gale is blowing to- day.       A monster nugget, weighing 210 pounds has been found at Dunnolly, about two inches below the surface. It has been sold for nine thousand   pounds (£9000).

February 10.       A GREAT fire broke out here last night, by which the premises of Hr. J. H. Bates, linen-draper, and Mr. Joseph Cohen, general storekeeper, were wholly destroyed.                     Mr. Francis Calvert's fine building, adjoining Bates's, &c., escaped with little injury.               Owing to the meritorious conduct of Sub-Inspector Creaghe and scores of the townspeople, a quantity of Cohen's merchandise was saved. Mrs Bates is severely burned.   As far as can be learned, Cohen's         property was insured in Melbourne, as   follows :-In the Tasmanian, £400 ;     Australasian, £1000 ; Imperial, £2...

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 13 February 1869

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE.     HOLIDAY.—To-day haying been proclaimed   a day of humiliation and prayer on account of the drought, will of course be observed as such, though the immediate necessity that called forth the proclamation, has, happily passed away. It is to be presumed that the service of humiliation and prayer will be changed for that of thanksgiving, or as the rain is said to have been somewhat partial, might it not be as well to have a little of both, by " mutual consent " as our contemporary has it, of those who have had rain and those who have had none. ILLNESS OF MR. FORSYTH.—Mr. Forsyth, our readers will be glad to hear, is rather better. The Doctors report a gradual im- provement, but under the most favorable circumstances, it must be a long time before his familiar face is once more seen amongst us. FREE SELECTION BY MINORS.—The Solici- tor-General has issued a circular to Land Agents requiring them in future to refuse transfers of...

JEALOUSY AND MUITDEK. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 13 February 1869

JEALOUSY AND MURDER. A case of murder has just been tried at Brest. The culprit was a seaman of the French navy, named Le Corre. He had been on a cruise for four years, and since his return had frequently accused his wife of misconduct during his absence, although those charges appear to have been unfounded. On the 27th of July, he told her to say her last prayer, and immediately after stabbed her to the heart with a knife. He was con- demned to death. After hearing his sentence, he suddenly drew forth a dagger which he had concealed about his person, and threw it on the ground, saying that had he been only sentenced to hard labour for life, he should have committed suicide in court.

NARANDEJRA.   [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] I AM most happy to be enabled to reverse my many reports anent the standing subject for country scribblers—the weather.     We have had a delightful and substantial rain, and should the next few days be tolor- ably temperate, we may hope to again observe grass on the frontage, in which case, by-the- by, when it becomes eatable, I suppose it will be devoured by the return stock from the mountains ; but, however, it is some satis- faction, however slight, to know that it will   be of benefit to some.           Numerous changes as regards men of busi- ness and others are contemplated ; but as nothing certain has, I believe, yet been decided upon, it is perhaps better, to say nothing of them. Mr. James Warby, late of your town, informs me that he has pur- chased the business of Messrs. J. H. Pollard and Co., of Hay. An individua...

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

HAY. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.]   A MELANCHOLY case of death by drowning occurred on last Tuesday evening, at Illilliwa station, near Hay. It appears that Mr.   Walter Tully, his four youthful sons, and a gentleman visitor, from Melbourne, went down from the house to bathe in the river, a little before tea-time. Mr. Tully himself   left the water first, safely, leaving his sons and the visitor still bathing. Presently Mr. Tully's attention was arrested by the agonis- ing cry of one of his boys that " Walter was drowning." The poor child, who was about seven years of age, had got out into deep water, with a slight current running ; and the efforts of the visitor to rescue him were proving unavailing. The father rushed fran- tically down the bank, into the water, to try and save his unfortunate boy, but the poor little fellow had sunk to rise no more. The body, although diligently searched for, was not discovered until the morning. The feel- i...
