A SHAKESPEARIAN RAT. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 20 February 1869
A SHAKESPEARIAN HAT. Last week, as Othello was being performed at the Theatre Iloyal, Greenock, a large grey-haired rat appeared upon the stage, having emerged from one of the side-wings, and approached the footlights. The presence of the brute proved too much for the nerves both of "Desdemona" (Miss Eliza Eaucit Saville) and " Emilia," wlio littered a faint scream. "Iago," with his arms akimbo, looked upon the rat with a sardonic frown, well befitting the character, but he did not draw his sword and execute summary ven geance upon it, as "Hamlet" is supposed to do when he finds "Polonius" coucoalod in his mother's antccliambor, and ox claims, "How now, a rat! Doad for a ducat, dead !" Crossing the stage, and being ap parently dazzled with the light, the animal ran tilt against the wing, which caused it to divert from its purpose, and approach the orchestra. The presence of the manipulator on tho bass liddle, fcowever, compelled the intruder to turn again and escape by the wing. The...
VELOCIPEDES. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 20 February 1869
VELOCIPEDES. Velocipede building now forms an im portant branch, of trade in France. There are not only manufactories of these now locomotives, but there are foundries where the iron work of which they are composed is cast. One of these employs 250 workmen, and finishes off twelve velocipedes per day for a coachbuilder of Lyons, who sells them at the rate of twenty per day. An export driver can do ten miles and a quarter (that is, sixteen kilometres) in an hour, but tho average rato of travelling is ton kilometres in tho sixty minutes (that is, six miles and a half), and with tho same fatigue which would bo experienced by walking at an ordinary pace during that time. The eflort a man makes to advauuo three, feet will carry him nine feet ami a half forward on a velocipede, but naturally on condition that his machine is well-built and works easily. The ordinary price of a good one is £12. A Lyonese velo cipedo3t is willing to take any bet that lie will beat the fastest trotter in a ra...

M'trfp Mirgp ' This Is true liberty, when freeborn men, Having to adviso the public, may speak free." MILTON. SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 20, 1869. " LAZY SIR ?-not at all-the fact is, I .was born tired." So said an " incorri gible idler" in extenuation of bis use lessness, and so says the Express in the first line of its leader of Wednesday last, in extenuation of two columns and a half of very " hard reading " indeed. " Really we are becoming tired of tlio Police Magistrate controversy." Wo do not doubt it. For once it is possi ble to give the Express credit for per fect sincerity. Let us return thanks for the opportunity, and make the most of the " new sensation." We are not going to follow the Express through its long-winded itera tion of venerable scandals and slanders. It is scarcely necessary to point out that epithets are not arguments, and that something more is required to substantiate a chai'ge than merely to repeat it. In point of fact, we have nothing to do either with arguments...

Sl'OCK REPORT. ADVERTISER Office, Friday Evening. The weather, during the week, has been hotter than can have been beneficial to the young grass that sprang up «o rapidly after the ran. A few more showers are -much needed to carry on the good work that the late heavy .rain began',' bnt at present, there ? seems but Utile prospect of getting them Most of the stations, however, have now abundance of water, and the drought having generally broken up, a good season may be safely a>iticij>afed. The first of the hometvard-bound flocks, Mr. Hollowaifs 12,000. from the Tumut, has returned frirni summer quarters. Many other flocks have also been recalled, and, doubtless, steps will be taken to prevent, as far as possible, the necessity for such a wholesale migration in any similar sea-son. Inter alia, we hear that several squatters are about to follow the good example of Mr. Wallace, and make a trial of the tube wells, the invention which effected such wonders in Abyssinia.

PRIZE . - ' \ OF . / ONE HUNDRED GUINEAS FOR THE BEST IEJS OK THE LAND QUESTION. IT is granted on all sides that the Laud Law requires amendtnont : tlie 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 the next Parliament. On this point, public opinion is still, as it always lias been, in a state of chaos. Opinions, in short, or "notions" which pass for opinions, ave as various as there are interests to be affected, or political purposes to be served. Before a question of sucli 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 politically sound from the politically plau sible, and if possible to evolve from the mass of contradictions that happy ...
MESSRS. GEORGE FORSYTH AND CO'S. REPORT. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 20 February 1869
MESSRS. GEORGE' FORSYTH .AND CO'S. REPORT. PAT CATTLE.-Transactions limited, there being few prime in the district, and we would not advise our friends who can hold, to dispose of any till after Lent when high prices both in Sydney and Melbourne may ne looked for. We have sold a small lot for local consumption. Quotations remain the same as last week. FAT SHEEP.-Supply limited, we have some ..enquiries for really prime, but the bad state of the roads and consequent difficulty of getting sheep to market in good con dition act very much against buyers opera ting. STORE CATTLE.-No sales to report, we have numerous buyers for a large quantity at good prices, but the present difficulty of mustering and travelling cattle prevents sales. STORE SHEEP.-We have numerous buyers, but the uncertainty as to whether the drought has definitely broken up, and con sequent difficulty of bringing buyers up to sellers' limits, at present stops operations as soon as the season regularly breaks we look fo...

SYDNEY GOSSIP. [FKOM Otrn OWN CORKESPON'DE.VT.] February 19; LET me congratulate you on your mcmbor. I.have always thought you rather favoured in ft representative rospect; or rathor, por liaps, havo partly forraod my opinion of you from the stylo of your representative. Dopend upon it there is "something in that," as Mr. Parkes would say. In this way a gallery view of the IIouso becomes equivalent to a bird's-eye view of the colony. I survey this fine country from Eden to the Clarence, and gatlier tlio general character of the various districts from that of thoir representatives. Is it a delusion of mine that as tho elected aro so are tho electors? Am I wrong-labour ing under tho illusion of a fond but faithless fancy when in the chaste simplicity and genial bonhommie of my lion, friend tho Post master-General I recognise tho primeval beauty and rich social charms of tho Austra lian Eden ; or in the doop-toned eloquence of tho illustrious Dignaiu, see rollectod tho i ; ? ; i correc...
NARANDERA. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 20 February 1869
NARANDERA. [FROM OUR OWN' CORRESPONDENT.3 THE aspect of the country about here lias undergone a wonderfully rapid change since the late showers. Sand-hills, some ten days ago having much the colour of well burnt bricks, now arc clothed (though scantily) with verdure. We only want one or two more heavy showers followed by mild wea ther to ensure us against tlio horrors of a dry summer and grasslcas winter. The late rain fall, although pretty general, lias, I regrot to say, missed some places altogether : Bolero station and neighbourhood) for instance, though very sadly in want of it, received but a slight share. Our island lock-up, (the same being built in the centre of a lagoon, and it now being filled with water) has a larger number of un willing residents than usual. One portion of it is occupied by two men-Hill and White, and the other by two sheep, thb innocent but material witnesses against them in a case in which the said persons are charged with sheep-stealing. The case again...
