IRISH PECULIARITIES. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express and Murrumbidgee District Advertiser — 27 August 1859

InisH PEOULIARlITEs.-- The Irish can't eat nothing but taturs, and drink nothing but whiskey, and talk nothing but priests and patriots, auctions and repeal. Tlhey don't do nothen like nobody else. Their coats are so long they drag on the ground like the tail of a Nantucket cow, which is so cussed poor that she can't hold it up, and their trousers are so short they don't reach below the knees, with two long s+.rings dangling from them that are never tied, and three buttons that never felt an eyelet hole; and wear hats that have no roofs on 'em. The pigs are fed in the house,.and the children beg on the road. They won't catch fish for fear they would have to use them in Lent, nor raise more corn than they cani eat, for fear they would have to pay rent. They sit on their cars side.. ways, like a gal on a side saddle, and never look ahead, so they see but one side of thing and always act and fight on one side-there is no two ways about them. And yet, hang me if I don't like them, take ...

MATRIMONIAL. TO UNMARRIED FEIMALES. I THE ADVERTISER, having been Sconvinced of the utter fallacy of the term "single blessedness," desire with all haste to desert the ranks of miserable Bachelors, and become a happy husband Of course, for the benefit of any fair applicant if Imay venture to hope there will be any I must endeavour to give a description of myself. I am naturally of a very timid and most retiring nature, which has unfortunately kept me for many years a perfect recluse; and as for a female I would as soon meet a lion; therefore, I despaired of ever being blessed with a wife, if it depended on nmy courting one, so I, as a last resource, adopt this somewhat strange methodl toobtain my heart's desire. I will be candid. If I am not prepossessing in personal appearance, I trust that what I am deficient in that respect, I will do all inmy power to make up for in another wayv-by being a good and amiable husband. I am not old, neither am I rich; I cannot be called poor, for I ...

Local Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express and Murrumbidgee District Advertiser — 27 August 1859

THE IACEs.--The forthcoming races are being looked forward to with joyous anticipa tion. Storekeepers are urging haste upon their metropolitan agents in the despatch of the variety of goods which during the festive season are to adorn the persons, or comfort the "inward man," of their customers; publicans are filling up collars in'the cer tainty of the race-week doing much towards emptying them; the public generally arc looking up their wardrobes and obtaining the necessary refits, while tailors--all except O'Harar-milliners, shoemnakers, saddlers, ct loc genus omne, are up to their eyes in work. In fact, the races have already given a stir to all kinds of business, which, in.the midst of a gencrally-prevailing dullness, .is truly refrcshing. The probability of the sport being good is also, we are happy to say, satisfac tory. Albury, it is anticipated, will be strongly represented by Junius, ~Electricity, Emperor, and anotlher or two, while-report says that Tranby will find his way ...

Commercial. MELBOURNE STOCK MARKET. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express and Murrumbidgee District Advertiser — 27 August 1859

MELBOURNE STOCK MARKET. FIT CarrL.--The supply during the week was much larger than for some time, and the quality was both good and bad, but chiefly of inferior descrip tion. What few really prilnme heavy weight bul locks were there, fetched about late quotations, say £14 Io0s. to 17 ts., and cows £11 to A15, others according to quality, and some 300 head were sent out utsnld. STone CAwrLc.-ThOe demand for this stock is rather slackened, owing, no doubt, to the apprehended dry season, and to the absence of anticipated heavy rains. FAIT Snses.-About the usual numbers were brought forward, but the demand was by no means brisk. Some good wethers fetched 20s. to 21s., but this was thle highest quotation of the week, inferior qualities selling at much lower rates. STons StItRP.-Not so much doing in this market, buyers looking for reduced prices, to whlich settlers are not willing to accede. The supply is howeves by no means large.

August 20, .1859. OVER BOARDn THnE PUNT. (To the Editor of the Wagga Wagga .Express.) DEAn Sm--My old father is a "Brick" as Samuel Weller, junr., said, "I am proud on him; and "so I ought to." Hle's "a right un" and "there aint no two ways about it." Now, Mr. Editor, " did you ever I" Only see how he has come out in the public spirited, and "injured individual" line, in your paper of this morning, in reference to the unjustifi able removal of "the newly launched punt," which the unreasonable owner "has deter mined to calrry "higher up thle river !!" If there is one thing more than another, for which I respect my old guv'nor, it is for his "Miurray" great bump of "Foresightl," which enables him always, to see things througha medium, which the optics of ordinary indivi. duals must in vain attempt to penetrate, and then he has such a happy knack, in print, of being personal, and piquant, and sarcastic, without avowing hostility, so-like that estima ble old Pirate, who with other great...

OUR REAL WANT. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express and Murrumbidgee District Advertiser — 27 August 1859

OUR REHAL WAANT. THE interest occasioned by the build ing of the new punt here, the keen ness with which its possession was contested, and the anxiety which is manifested as to the precise locality in which it is to ply, point unmistake ably to one fact, of which, for our own sake, we ought not to lose sight; viz., that to construct a bridge over the Murrumbidgee, at W¥agga Wagga, would not only be to perform a work of very general public utility and ad vantage, but would also tend to in crease considerably the value of all descriptions of property in the district, and be highly remunerative as a spe culation to its proprietary. We must bear in mind that if we wish to advance, and that the district in which we reside should attain a prominent position, we must exert ourselves to that end. We must leave no means within our power untried to turn the natural advantages of the locality to good account, and the veriest sceptic would hardly deny that, if we can succeed in erecting a good ...

THE COWPER BANQUET. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express and Murrumbidgee District Advertiser — 27 August 1859

THE COWPER BANQUET. Ir appears that for some time past the political temperament of the iletrepolitan "Liberals" has been in a very excited state. The election just over seems rather to have inflamed their feelings than, as is usually the case, tohave quieted them. So great was the redundant liberality of the Sydney electors that it was absolutely necessary to devise some means for its exhibition. Testimonial-giving was getting stale, besides no millionaire auctioneer had been going home lately, to whom a silver plateaa and a picnic could be accorded in commemmoration of his having made his own fortune, and it became therefore indispensable to find out some suitable vent by which the exuberant generosity of the Sydneyites might expend itself in giving something to somebody. A banquet to Mr. woPErn was the very thing; it served the twofold end of ministering at once to their self-glorifi cation and to their imaginary patriot ism. Furtiher than that, it is difficult to conceive what o...

THE FRENCH AND GERMAN ARMIES. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express and Murrumbidgee District Advertiser — 3 September 1859

THE FRENCH AND (JERMIAN ARIHES. -M. Stroubel, an officer of artillery, gives in the German Quarterly the following estimate of the forces which France and Germany can bring into t·he field :-The whole force of France is 660,000 men, with 1200 guns (field artillery); Austria can raise between 750,000 and 800.000 men, with 1344 guns; Prussia 540,000' (including the first and second levies of landwehr), with 1004 gunls. The other German States can, with their reserves, bring together an army of 350,000 men. according to the Asrny List of 1855, thile Federal army for that year .con sisted of 525,000 men, with 1,112 guns. "The quality of the French army as a whole," says thile German officer, "is first-rate, but still it is in f'rior to that of the German and Aus trians in two respects. Its Chasseurs and Zouaves cannot, as shots, compete with the Jagers, and its cavalry is not so good as that of the Austrians and Prussians."

ANECDOTES OF THE WAR. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express and Murrumbidgee District Advertiser — 3 September 1859

ANECDOTES OF THE WAR. At the meeting of tlhe French Senate the President, in refer. ence to the battle, said, "When we meet again, Napoleon III., who has saved France, will probably have liberated Italy, and Europe will have seen the end of a question which has oppressed it for centuries." The session of the Senate was then closed by prodlamation. A correspondent of thile Nord says that the Emperor's despatch with the news of the victory of Magenta con tained no less than eight hundred words. It was opened at St. Cloud, and deciphered by M. Damas Hinard, in the presence of the Empress and the guests who had been dining with her., When the translator came to the passage relating to General M'Mahon, who, as always, was first in the field," he.stopped for a moment, owing to a difficulty in making out the cypher. Lady M?Mahon, who was listening intently, fancied that this hesitation was the prelude to a terrible revelation, and fainted away. A letter from Rome published in the Gazette o...
