Wagga Wagga Advertiser "This is true liberty, when freeborn men, Having to advise the public, may speak free." MILTON. SATURDAY, OCTOBER 31, 1868. THE NEW MINISTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 31 October 1868

WAGGA WAGGA ADVEDRTISER " This is true liberty, when freeborn men, Having to advise the public, may speak free." MILTON. SATURDAY, OCTOBER 31, 1868. THE NEW MINISTRY. MR. ROBERTSON'S list of honourable col- leagues will have been perused with very various feelings. Received in some quarters with ridicule, in more, perhaps, with indifference, it will have been greeted in others with all the satisfaction of a triumph. We are not inclined to go to any of these extremes.   If some of the names appear laughable in such a position, the joke is such an old one, such a veritable scion of the political JOE MILLER, as to fall compa-   ratively flat. If there are others which command our respect, and to a certain extent excite our hopes, experience re- minds us that hopes are a brittle ware, and political hopes, of all, the most brittle. Compared with its predecessor, the new Ministry has, at least, this good quality to recommend it—it is new. If it has nothing, as ye...

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. THE TURF. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 31 October 1868

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. THE TURF. The weights for the Grand Stand Handicap were declared as below, on Wednesday evening last, at the Australian Hotel. Of course, like all handicaps, it has failed to please everyone, but with one or two except- ions, to which we shall allude more fully next week, we do not see much fair ground for complaint.

SYDNEY GOSSIP. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] Sydney, 28th October. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 31 October 1868

SYDNEY GOSSIP. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] Sydney, 28th October. THE hon. John. Robertson, Colonial Secretary and Premier of New South Wales seems to   have found, the task of organising a Cabinet not quite so easy as his friends and admirers, and, probably, he himself imagined it would be, and after all his exertions he is still an Attorney-General. There seems to have been any amount of coquetting involved in getting the now men together. It was at first reported that ulie Hebrew fraternity had one and all such a decided bias towards Parkes, whom they regard (and possibly not without reason) as the " coming man," that it was very doubtful whether the great Wel- lington financier would consent to stop into Eagar's shoes under any other regime but     that of the " pet of Kiama." However, that has proved to be a mere canard, and Samuel now lords it over the State coffers. How Foster was ever persuaded to be only   " Lands " in th...

HAY. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 31 October 1868

HAY. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] A melancholy accident happened here earl y on Sunday morning, 25th instant, which re-   sulted in the drowning of Mr. P. M. Sparkes, the supercargo of the J.H.P. The boat had left her moorings at the wharf, and just got a little below the punt, on her return trip to Echuca, when through some unexplained cause, poor Sparkes, who was playing with a dog on deck, managed to tumble overboard. The Captain hearing the splash, turned, and seeing Sparkes struggling in the water in- stantly gave the alarm,—meanwhile ordering the engines to be reversed, and throwing out the life buoy ; simultaneously, the fireman gallantly jumped in to the rescue ; but the current running very strongly his efforts to reach the drowning man were unavailing.   Sparkes could not swim. During, the day several of his friends were out in quest of the body, and two of the aborigines, under the directions of the police, were engaged in diving and dragging fo...

NOTES AND QUERIES. To the Editorl of the Wagga Wagga Advertiser. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 31 October 1868

NOTES AKD QUERIES.   To the Editor of the Wagga Wagga Advertiser. Sir,—Our Court week is over, and is far as I can see no body is much the better or worse for it. Everything went off mildly ; there were few convictions, a strange thing for Wagga Wagga, and damages laid at thousands quickly melted down to tens, to the disgust of those who had put extravagant estimates on their injuries. I have an idea, it may he a wrong one, that there is never anything gained by going into court, and I think the result of last week's actions bears out my theory. It would be much better if   we could pocket our little differences, and let each man speak his mind. However, we have done with it ; we have given our Judge a dinner, at which, by the way, the speeches were none of the best, not excluding his Honor's, and it is all over. Suitors, jury-   men, and lawyers, have all returned to their several occupations, and let us hope we will be all friends again. I ca...

OBITUARY. The Bishop of Peterborough, Earl of Abergavenny, Lord Howard De Wal- den, Generals Cockburn and Macken-   zie, Sergeant Goulburn, Lord Norman- ton, Lord Ashburton, Dean Milman, Dr. Mackenzie.     A military revolt has broken out in Spain, which in a few days developed itself, and was completely successful ; it began at Cadiz among the soldiers, who were joined by the sailors and navy garrison. The exiled Generals have returned. General Prim advanced on Madrid ; a   Provisional Government has been es- tablished at Seville, and Espartero declared President. The insurgents became masters of the fleet. In several provinces engagements took place, in which the Royalists were defeated. The latest news states that the revolu- tion is triumphant, the garrison of Madrid fraternised with the people, and a revolutionary manifesto was published—" Liberty, Universal Suff- rage, and the abolition of tho Bourbon Dynasty."

Latest English News. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 31 October 1868

Latest English News.       The English news to hand by the Panama and Suez mails is mostly telegraphic, and not of much import ance. We therefore prefer to await our full files, copious, extracts, from, which will be given in our next issue. (From, the Herald's Telegraphic Summary,)   LONDON, September 11. The Duke of Edinburgh honoured by his presence the marriage of Com- mander Campbell, of the Galatea, to Miss Archer ; the Prince officiated as best man. A catastrophe occurred near Abergele Station, Chester, on the Holyhead line. The Irish mail train crashed into the waggons of a goods train which was being shunted. One waggon, which contained barrels of petroleum, became ignited, and then a fierce and rapid conflagration ensued. The first three carriages were enwrapped in flames, and burned up all occupants, number- ing 33. The hinder portion of the train was detached, and the passengers were thus saved. The inquest showed negli...

SELECT POETRY. A WOMAN'S QUESTION. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 31 October 1868

SELECT POETRY. A WOMAN'S QUESTION.   BY ADELAIDE A. PROCTER, DAUGHTER OF " BARRY CORNWALL." Before I trust my Fate to thee,   Or place my hand in thine, Before I let thy Future give Colour and form to mine. Before I peril all for thee, question thy soul to-night for me. I break all slighter bonds, nor feel A shadow of regret ; Is there one link within the past That holds thy spirit yet ? Or is thy faith as clear and free as that which I can pledge to thee ? Does there within thy dimmest dreams A possible future shine, Wherein thy life could henceforth breathe, Untouched, unshared by mine ? If so, at any pain or cost, oh, tell me before all is lost. Look deeper still. If thou can'st feel, Within thy inmost soul, That thou hast kept a portion back, While I have staked the whole ; Let no false pity spare the blow, but in true mercy tell me so. Is there within thy heart a need That mine cannot fulfil ?     One chord that any other hand...

THE ANTI-MARRIAGE MANIA. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 31 October 1868

THE ANTI-MARRIAGE MANIA. TALKING of cold mutton and families, reminds me of celibacy. Why is this I sudden madness for matrimony ? The English papers are fall of the enthral- ing theme, and even some of our Aus- tralian journals have condescended to notice it. It appears that the young men in England, and the world generally, do not see their way to sup- porting a wife upon nothing to speak   of and a Government appointment. The old story about " love in a cottage " has been disentombed from the grave of sentimentality, and its sad-eyed ghost stalks through the pages of one's morning paper. I thought that in these practical times we had disabused our minds of that pleasant superstition —I imagined that nobody married unless they could afford that luxury, and that we were all practical and positive, instead of theoretical and negative. Youth and beauty are both dead. The first have given way to indifferentism and late hours, and the second has been swallowed up by Madame...

AMERICA. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 31 October 1868

AMERICA. Outrageous murders are of constant occurrence. The Democratic Convention in Now York have nominated Hoffman. The Government passed resolutions in favour of the payment of the debt in paper money, and a general amnesty in taxation for the national debt. Indian massacres are increasing at Kansas, Montano, and Collorado. A general Indian war is imminent. The Fenians are attempting to re- organise their order. President Johnson is going to     Europe.   A protection of Mexico is proposed, with rectification of United States boundary. Tidal waves, sixty feet high, visited   the shores of Lower California on the 15th August. SAN FRANCISCO.—Private letters mention   that Chubb, who was convicted for embezzle- ment some few years ago, is an insurance agent in that city.

GENERAL NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 31 October 1868

GENERAL NEWS.         The Corowa correspondent of the Albury   Banner writes :-" There is a large quantity   of wool going down every day by teams   direct to Melbourne. The squatters seem to be frightened of the boats this year, owing to the trouble occasioned last year through the floods and the want of sufficient storage accommodation. The former might not   occur again for many years, and as there   have been three large stores built on this   side expressly for wool, they need not be much alarmed at its getting damaged ; but I suppose they will get more confidence in a little time."     A deputation has waited upon the Com-     missioner for Railways, to press upon him   the necessity for a branch line to the Western districts. He promised to give the state- ments of the deputation a fa...

WOOL-GROWING. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 31 October 1868

WOOL-GROWING.       SQUATTING, or move properly speaking, wool growing, is no longer the business of ama- teurs or unskilled persons. High breeding in sheep is no longer confined to France or Germany. The Emperor of Russia and Napoleon III. keep well-bred sheep as pets ; our wool growers keep them for profit. They are not playthings in the hands of Australian squatters, who are urged on to the contest expecting to gain something more substantial than " honourable mention'' or a gold medal. The old expensive and defective system of shepherding has given place to fencing in runs, enabling the sheep to follow more closely their natural habits. The wool, from this superior mode of dealing with the sheep is much greater in quantity and better in quality. The runs carry at least twenty per cent, more than they would under the expiring method of " dogging " the sheep. Here we have two apparent advantages. Then, again, the costs of the shepherds in wag...

[PROSPECTUS.] THE WAGGA WAGGA ADVERTISER TO-DAY is published the first number of   a new local journal.   This Journal will be published bi-weekly,   and the reasons which appear to the proprietors to justify, if not to demand, such an experiment on their part, may be thus briefly stated :- 1. The rapidly increasing prosperity and     importance of the district, require adequate representation by means of the Press. 2. The special interests, pastoral, agricul- tural, and otherwise, of the district, require the special advocacy of an   independent organ, commanding the   confidence and identified with the     fortunes of the interests in question.   3. Neither of the above requisites can be said to be possessed by the district   at present. Induced by these considerations, and firmly Relieving in the old truth that " the gods help those who he...

WOOL, STOCK, AND STATION REPORTS. MESSRS. HARRISON AND JONES'S REPORT. STATIONS.—We cannot report any improve- ment under this head, for the week, busi- ness remaining extremely dull, chiefly owing, we think, to the severity of the seasons in most parts of the country ; we have to record the sale of Lungboyde, back block, No. 1, in the Warrego district, to Mr. Thomas Hungerford, for 1050/, equal to cash.
