HAY PASTORAL SHOW, 1872. The past week lias been a lively one for the township of Hay. There was the Pastoral Ball, the Trades men's Ball, a Lecture by the Rev. Jas. Nish of Sandhurst, a Presby terian Bazaar, the laying- of the foundation stone of the Presbj'terian Sabbath School, Assembly Room, &e., all called into being by the fact that it was the week of the Hay Pastoral fchow. At one time the thought arose that the Hay Pastoral Association would, be snufred out by the Great Central, but there is too much vigour in our district for such an idea to become a reality. The meeting just closed has been the most successful hitherto, and great promise is given of better (much better) things next year. The Hay Pastoral Association liavfinnwrnflo niiicent yards erected by J. H. Pal- j mer — they are the admiration of all w'to look at them. They have be s des a good balance in the bank, and several who were lured from Hay on the Murrumbidgee by the enchanting voice of Hay at Boo ma...

SYDNEY. August 12. [Newspaper Article] — The Hay Standard and Advertiser for Balranald, Wentworth, Maude... — 14 August 1872

SYDNEY. (from our own correspondent.) August 12. It is currently reported here that Mr Parkes will do his best in the next session to keep our lords within bounds, the refection of the Customs Bill will only hasten their fate. Both here and in Victoria the feeling has been growing stronger year by year, that the ob structive powers need keeping within bounds, j though up to the present time there has been i no great reason to exclaim against the Upper House, though it has caused many difficulties that would never have arisen had it not been for the obstinacy of the members of the Coun cil. But while it is acknowledged both here and in Victoria, and also in England, that the time is rapidly approaching for a reform of powers of members of the IJpper Houses, yet in New South Wales at least we have not had a Government that has felt itself of sufficient strength to grapple with this really important question. However, should the present Min istry tackle them during the next session, it...
