MESSRS. WILKINSON, MINCHIN, &. LAVENDER'S REl'ORT. WAGGA WAGGA, 1IAY, AND SYDXKV WufKra Wflffira. March 7. Fat Stock.— Our Sydney report informs us that the market for both cattle and sheep was slightly easier on Thursday. The fall was, no doubt, owing to the large supply which was forward. The bidding, however, J was brisk, and everything was cleared. Bullocks averaged from £4 9s 2d to £0 Os 9d ; merino wethers, Cs Gd to 9a Gd ; crosshrcds, from Ss 4d to lie.

UMBRELLAS. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 8 March 1879

UMBRELLAS. The latest American novelty applies to umbrellas. It appeal's to be admitted that any individual attempt to deal with the national scaudal of umbrella mis appropriation must fail, and that it is therefore desirable to promote and establish a company ior tne purpose. The affair is to have its head-quarters at New York, and its style and title is to be the Umbrella Loan Company. The principles on which the scheme is to be conducted are exceedingly simple. On payment of so many dollars per annum, iu advance, the customer is provided with a handsome umbrella, and at the same time he is furnished with a metal ticket. By this arrangement he has a protection from the rain always handy in the hall-stand at home, and should he at any time be out and umbrellaless and a shower should come on, the ticket in his pocket will enable him to step into any one of the numerous agencies (there are to be a dozen or so in each main thoroughfare) and borrow what he requires. When he has done wi...

A DOG CASE. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 8 March 1879

A DOG CASE. A case which arose out of a stake won by a greyhound was tried in the Supreme Court on Saturday, before his Honour the Chief Justice and a special jury of six. The plaintiff, Mr. Samuel Bloor, of Flemington, hotelkeeper and trainer of dogs, sued to recover the sum of £15 from Mr. W. F. Barrett, of Melbourne, solicitor, on a dishonoured cheque drawn by the defendant. The defence was that no value was received for the cheque, and that the defendant was induced to give it by the fraud of the plaintiff. Mr. Quiulan appeared for the plaintiff, and Mr. Purves aud Mr. Fink for the defendant. The plaintiffs evidence was that last year he was training a greyhound, named Totty, for the defendant. About the month of May, the defendant told him that he was goiug on a trip to Tasmania, and that lie thought of running a dog in one of the coursing events there. He (the plaintiff) agreed to let him have a dog when required, and said, ' You know the usual thing — half the win nings, if a...

A RIVERINA NOTORIETY. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 8 March 1879

A 1UVER1NA NOTORIETY. Tin: Darlington correspondent of the Albury Banner has the following sketch of a character well known in this dis trict, who, the writer supposes, was drowned in the Murrumbidgeo some time back ! — The mysterious disappearance of a very remarkable character, and the probability of his being drowned in the Murrumbidgee, shortly after shearing somewhere in the neighbourhood of Johnson's publichouse, Cuba boundary, adds one more to the long list of deaths immediately traceable to intemperance. ' Tip M'Gratli,'' the victim in the present instance, was well known throughout the length and breadth of New S.iutli Wales, Victoria, and New Zealand, and was intimately identified with all the diggings of the colonies. He was employed at lvcrar burv station during the shearing, aud at its close wended his way up the river till he reached Johnson's Hotel, where of course he got on the ' spree.' But ' sprees,'' like ail other earthly tilings must have an end, and in this ins...

A REMEDY FOR BUSHRANGING. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 8 March 1879

A Remedy for Bushranuinu. What we require, aud must have, if ever busliranging is to be wiped out of our land, is a special force of able-bodied, active, young men, under the leadership of proved sergeants, who would devote then- time for a series of years to these questionable localities wnere cattle stealers and others are likely to carry ou tlieir deeds with impuuity. Let this special force have no direct con nection with the regular constabulary of the colony. Let theni have their barracks, or call it station if you will, in the centre of the wildest mountain. Let the Government stock the run with cattle bearing their own brand. Let this special police take daily excursions over mountain and glen, till they are as well acquainted with every corner of the ranges as a man is with his own parlour. Let there be a general muster ing every three months or once a month if you choose. Let each animal be ac counted for either dead or alive. To all this let there be given tc those men who...

Rosee des Alpes (Dew of the Alps). — The aromatic herb which im parts such a delicate flavour to the matchless tonic, and to which it mainly owes its wonderful invigorating pro perties, was discovered five centuries ago in the heart of the Alps, and from that day to this botanical research has never revealed its equal. In Aus tralia it has rapidly and deservedly taken precedence of any other imported stimulant ou account of its absolute purity, incomparable flavour, and ex traordinary properties as a cure for indigestion, and as an absolute preven tive against malarious disease. — Adv.

THE PARLIAMENTARY PRIVILEGES BILL. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 8 March 1879

The Parliamentary Privileges Bill. Opinions are divided as to the Parlia mentary Privileges Bill. Some people actually go so far as to say that it is a piece of monstrous tyranny for the two Houses to clothe themselves with the powers and privileges of the House of Commons, which have been obtained by the conflict of centuries with the power of the Crown and the noble?. What would be said if we had a Prince Bismarck here proposing the severe measures for the maintenance of good behaviour in the Parliament which the great German statesman thinks neces sary in his own country ! By a bill before the German Reichstag, a com mittee would be authorised to inflict three penalties, viz. : — ' 1. To order a member to receive a public reproof before the assembled House. 2. To oblige.an offender to make an apology before the assembled House ; and 3, to exclude a deputy from the Reichstag for a fixed period. Should this ex elusion extend to the entire term of the session of the Legislature, a m...

THE RAILWAY TO HAY. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 8 March 1879

THE RAILWAY TO HAY. The advocates of the South Murrum bidgee extension of the Southern line seem to bo very much impressed with the ignorance and stupidity of other people, and if we may judge from the tone of the manifesto that recently appeared in our columns, a large part of their argument seems to consist ill attacking and deriding those who differ from them. This style of reasoning, though apparently affording great gratification to those who indulge in it, does not cany much conviction to the public mind, and it would have con duced more to the settlement of the question if jtlie advocates of the south side route had directed their attention more to arguments than to persons, and had shown iu wdiat way it would facili tate the acquisition of commerce by Sydney if the point of junction with the main Southern line were to be fixed nearer to Melbourne than Sydney. It has never seemed to us legitimate that the interests of Sydney should be considered as paramount, and that the set...

THE BUSHRANGERS. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 8 March 1879

The Bushrangers. The fuller particulars which arc pub lished of the capture of the four bush rangers who set up in imitation of the Kellys, and whose first exploit was at Hatfield, will be read with extreme satisfaction, not only in this colony aud Victoria, but throughout Australia. The arrest was a gallant attair through out, reflecting credit upon every one concerned in it. What a contrast it presents to the miserable puisillaniniity and terror-stricken behaviour of the police and the hundreds of people who, at Euroa and Jerilderie, not only ten dered their full submission to the Kelly gang, but exalted theni for the hour into heroes, and lavished upon them the most profuse admiration during the two days the desperadoes honoured the latter town with tlieir, as it was looked upon, almost royal presence. And it is on account of tlie noble contrast thus presented that this clever and plucky capture ought to exercise a valuable and salutary influ ence upon the community generally, au...

HATFIELD BUSHRANGERS. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 8 March 1879

HATFIELD BUSHRANGERS. The Hatfield bushrangers : — Ilobbs, Jones, Gorman, aud Kay — we learn by telegram, were brought up at the IJal ranald Police Court on Monday, and remanded till to-day. Respecting their arrest, our Balrauald -correspondent writes : — ' After the bushrangers had stuck up the Till Till station, they stopped sit the Clare Hotel, on the Wilciiunia road, where they partook of reftesh meats, and gave their horses a short spell. They then made off in the direction of the Kilfera station, about forty miles further on, where they represented themselves to be bull drovers, aud asked to be supplied with provisions. Mr. Casey, the superin tendent of the station, gave them the requisite rations, and as they said they had nothing less than a £5 note, he told them they could pay for the goods on their return from the Darling, to which place they said they were going. After this the men disappeared, and Mr. Casey saw them no more. In the meantime, Troopers Bercsford and Power,...

NEW ZEALAND AND SEPARATION. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 8 March 1879

New Zealand and Separation. When we hear that the Ministerial Press in New Zealand favours separa tion from the mother country, and when we are aware that the Ministerialist party is still strong in the constituen cies, we might be led to conclude that public sentiment in the island colony on the question of the Imperial connection is assuming an unworthy and unpa triotic tone. It is to be observed that the words 'the Ministerial Press' have in New Zealand two significations, one political only, the other proprietary as well. The expression of opinion alluded to recently in our telegrams, we imagine, will be found to proceed from the Ministerial Press — the latter sense alone — that is to say, from the Wel lington newspaper, of which the mem bers of the Ministry and some of their principal political allies are the owners. It is impossible to believe that in a prosperous, loyal, contented colony, such as New Zealand for many years past has been, dissevenneut from the Empire would be ...

CATCHING A DEVIL FISH. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 8 March 1879

CATCHING- A DEVIL FISH. An officer of the flagship Pensacoola, of the Pacific squadron, writing from off La Pa/., Lower California, December !)th, communicates to the Vallejo Chro nicle an interesting account of the pur suit and capture of an enormous sea monster resembling Victor Hugo's fa mous devil-fish. The writer savs The most exciting went of our cruise thus far was the capture to-day of ail immense devil-fish. Ever since our arrival in these waters several huge fish have been observed in the vicinity of the ship, and much speculation has arisen as to what they were. One making its appearance this afternoon, our gunner, Geo. F. Cushnian, decided to establish his identity if possible, and accompanied by Assistant Engineer Ed wards, Midshipmen M'Donald, Wood. Craven, and Paymaster's Clerk Spauld ing, gave chase in the dingy. The fish, swimming slowly and near the surface of the water, which is very clear here, looked like a great shapeless brown mass, frepiently throwing above t...

? 1 WALGETT. | (From our Correspondent). Tms quarter is quiet-like. The meat market depression is acting as a sedative to stockowners.
