English telegrams which came to hand on .'''Thursday had a little better cfTeet on tho market, as far as regards the competition, but no material alteration in prico was noticed. One lot of scoured sold by us realized 21dper lb. The principal part of the catalogues at tins time of the season are generally made up of indifferent or medium wools, so the prices named do not form a fair criterion of values here.

LONDON PRESERVED MEAT REPORT. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser — 12 May 1875

LONDON PKESERVED MEAT REPORT. | Mr. Tnllcrmau reports fcbafc there ia bufc a comparatively small business doing at present with no immediate prospect of improvement. The public institutions arc inviting tenders for tuo supply of their requirements for the half-year, which when arranged may lead to business, but muttou being iu full supply, with ready sellers, no advance can bo'loolced for in that lino. Beef of all descriptions is scarce, and will maintain its prico for somo time to come; but no marked iticreaso in valuo can bo looked for, as owing to the re duced rates ruling for fresh meat, any con siderable advance would bring the Scotch preservers into the field. Owing to adverse winds the arrivals for the mouth have been leas than usual, bufc shipments advised as -nfloafc are np' to tho quantity of lust year. Sinco last Suez mail tho landings fro'in Aus tralia and Now Zealand aro 59U-1 cases ; and from other ports, 7801 cases.

Where tho wools possess great length, the home com petition is sutiicieufc to ensure good and occasionally eveu high results; but it fails for tho short kinds of extra line quality, which almost invariably go to France.

ALBURY. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser — 12 May 1875

ALBURY. (Fiioai cum own coriiesvondent.) ' Tho Hospital complaint at Wftgga caused no small excitement in this town. Wo havo our peculiar whims and prejudices, liko all other people, and as social circumstances de mand, must often agree to differ; but in the case referred to Dr- O'Connor gains general sympathy. Had the man Dormody gono directly cither to tho Archdeacon, to Air. Tompson, or to the Hospital Committee, his case would bo entitled to investigation ; but, as it was, tho wonder is how a Committee could listen to such a nonsensical farrago as Dcrinotly's complaint. What a pity that tho •'coachers" did nob post up their man a little better, and ask tho Doctor's opinion on the merits of Hydropathic, the Allopathic, and the Homeopathic systems of medicine, and so enlighten the public.

The titlo of Victoria, ' Queen of Great Britaiu and Ireland, Empress of Hin dostan and Sovereign of JAustralasia,' does not oven tell the whole story. I havo heard it said and repeated a hundred times, that England has lost her prestige because she has in some degree withdrawn from intermeddling with tho affairs of the European conti nent.

CHRISTIANS, FROM A CHINESE POINT OF VIEW. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser — 15 May 1875

CHRISTIANS, PROM A CHINESE POINT OF VIEW. The following, purporting to bo written by n Chinaman resident in Australia to bis brothor in tho Celestial land, nppoars in the Molbourno Evening Herald :— That you may judge of the singular character of this religion, I will give an illustration. One wicked man wilfully kills' another wicked man. Christianity tenches that those who die unrepentant go to a. plnoe of eternal torture, which is called Hell, but if a sinner reponts ere ho dies ho he will be received in Paradise. Ob serve, then. Tho man who is killed had obviously neither tiuio nor oppor tunity for repontarico. Tho murderer, on the contrary, has abundance of time to make his peace. Ho is visited by clergymen, prayed with, tanght, ex horted—and in nine cases out of ton goes willingly to his death, in tho cortain belief that ho is en route to Heaven. Obviously it is better to murder than to bo murdered, since in tho ono caso a man can secure happi ness for ever ; in the oilier lie...
