PREVIOUS ARCTIC EXPEDITIONS. (Newcastle Daily Chronicle) [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser — 7 August 1875

PREVIOUS ARCTIC EXPE DITIONS. (Newcastle Daily Chronicle) At the present momont, when so much interest is attracted by the Arctic expedition, which Bailed on Saturday from Portsmouth, it will be interesting to give broifly some account of previous oxplorers to find Out a north-east and north-west passage. The attempt to discover a north-west passage was first made by a Portuguese named Corte Real, who was licensed by Henry VII. for that purpose, on condition that be sailed under the English flag, and, after payiug the cost of his expedition, gave to the king a fourth of the revenue of any unknown land be discovered. In 1585 a company was formed in London called the "Fellowship for the Dis covery of the North-West Passage," and it Was on the behalf of this com pany that Captain Davis sailed to the Straits which bear his name to this day. 'From the year 1745 to 1818 Parliament offered £20,000 for the discovery of this passage, the reward being modified in the last-mentioned year by Go...

Men of his style nover do, until the obituary notices are written perfectly to their satisfaction. A short time ago most anthentio intel ligence of his death was written here from an old Victorian rosident in Sun Francisco, and Stitt Jenkins burst out all ovor in a perfect perspiration of pccans to his memory. As railway accidents, from once of which ho was supposed to havo suffered, are natural conditions of American travelling, everybody thought that, to use an Irishism, he bad diod like a goutle- j mou, to tho credit of his family.

SYDNEY. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser — 7 August 1875

SYDNEY. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) On the whole our Parliamentary career since I last wroto has nob been of a very sensational character, the result, however, being satisfactory, in so much that there has been more absolute business transacted. In the,Legislative Council, on the 29th ult., Mr. Holt brought lip certain resolutions, purporting to deal with the Sydney water . supply, which ho considered was not ade quate to tho existing requirements of our great metropolis, proposing that a commis sion bo appointod to take tho matter into consideration.

HOW IT ENDED. So a love story has corno to an end (says the Melbourne Herald), aud does not close in the usual stylo of tho Minerva novel—"and they lived hap pily all the rest of the days of their lives.". You will remember thai: some years ago, a young' Tasmanian lady, of some pretensions to beauty and fortune, when in the galaxy of beauty on the graud stand on. l?lemingtou course, fell in love with a tall and strong and somewhat noisy betting man; It was common gossip at tho time how the young lady made her way from among hor aristocratic friends iu St. Kilda to the relatives of the Iieander of this Hero. Pity is akin to lovo, and one feeling or the other drove the turtle-doves : in ' tlio carriage of Hope to tho Temple of Hymon. Fortune has prospered the young lovor since, find the goddess of matri mony had blessod him with one child. But there latoly camo on the scene a mothor-in-law from a distant land, with whom, the young Tasinanian did not always agree. Mothors-in-law, whoth...

SCARCITY OF HORSES. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser — 7 August 1875

SCARCITY' OF HOESES. Writing about scarcity of liorses in Victoria, tlio Ballarat Star says :— " Horses with any breeding worth notice are becoming very scarce. AVc lieav, however, that Mr. A. Taylor, agent for Messrs. Parsons and Co., Indian shippers, has within the last four months selected from the' local market about eighty horses of pretty high quality, and most of them got by imported sires. The selection referred to is destined for India in tho ship jSTiobe, which is to sail on the 30th of this month. She takes with her alto gether, as wc learn, 255 horses, 125 of which belong to Messrs. Parsons and Co., and 100 to Mr. James Cavanagh. Somewhere about 2000 horses will, it is computed, leave this colony for India this year. Breeders of horses ought to take notico of this, as tho breeding of good usoful stock is likely to pay well. A horso fit to carry 12 or 13 stono, and a .turn in tho hunting iield, or is fit for a carriage or buggy purpose, is almost certain to givo handsome ...

TOUTS AND TURF CORRESPONDENTS. (Saturday Review.) [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser — 7 August 1875

TOUTS AND TURF COBRBS PONDENTS. (Saturday Review.) . A letter frorp a well-known and highly rospeotable trainer which ap peared the other day in a sporting journal is very significant of the em barrassing conditions under which the racing of the day must be conducted. To his surprise tbe trainer came upon a paragraph in one of the racing papers intimating that ono of his borse's was indisposed. Now it was truo onough that the animal bad been slightly ailing, but it certainly had not occurred to Mr. Portor, the trainer in question, to publish the fact. Natur ally bo set to work to elucidato tbo mystery, and to find out which of tho members of his establishment hud taken tho liberty of commuuicating with tho press. It turned out on in quiry that a couple of his stable-boys had been invited to spend an evening with tho local correspondent of a sporting journal, and that they bnd re paid their ontortainor's kind hospi tality by helping him to intelligence for a sensationul telegram.

NAKANDERA. (FROM A COilHKSPONDENT.) Sinok my last wo have had some very heavy rains, and, ere long all the flats will again be 1 inundated. The township of late has been very quiet, and, with the exception of largo numbers of shearers passing through here thero is very little traffic to report. The shearers going through arc the rowdiest and noisiest lot I ever met with. Three or four ; of them going down the river mistook tho road, and went through Mr. ISlwin's pad dock, when, instead of going back on seeing there was no outlet, they pulled down a part of the wire fence. When spoken to by Mr. Elwin, they offered to fight him. Ho thought it the best policy to let them go but came in here afterwards fora policeman, and over took them the following morning, when they were all given in charge, and brought before Mr. J. Douglas, J.P., of North Yanko Station. I have heard that Mr. Douglas intended to commit tlio vagabonds for trial but for Mr. EI win, who, with his usual good nature, sai...

AN IMPORTANT TRADE ;■ QUESTION. ..In; these days of joint-stock enter prise, there is nothing to which it can not be applied. ' £l long standing grio vanco, says the Joint-Slock Companies Journal, with manufacturers, which may with truth bo said to alFoot equally tho retailor and also the subse quent buyer, is the existence of large intermediaries, who may perhaps be more correctly described as l'ich mo nopolists- Now hero is a legitimate fiold of enterprise, tho value of which cau hadly be over estimated, and if properly carried out, could not fail to realiso largo and profitable returns. It is, therefore, with pleasure wo give publicity to the fact that reliable infor mation has 1'cached us that an under taking of a comprehensive and novel character is about to be placed before the public, which will afford consi 'er able reliof to manufacturers in their operations, and effect a tangible reduc tion of prices to the retailing classes, to tho same time offering a safe and good inves...

WAGGA WAGGA: ITS PAST AND PRESENT. (Contributed). [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser — 7 August 1875

WAGGA WAGGA : ITS PAST AND PRESENT. (Contributed) The flourishing and progresssive little town, Wagga Wagga is pleasnntly situate upon the River, Muminibidgee, occupying portions of The North and South bank. It is the com- mercial centre to one of the finest pastoral   and agricultural districts of the colony. The Southern division of the town is the more im- portant of the two, as here are grouped all the public buildings. It possesses other great ad- vantages in point of position etc., and its pro- gress has been (in proportion), infinitely greater than that of the Northern division. The Murrumbidgee which, as stated, flows through. Wagga, is the chief tributary to the Murray, which separates the colonies of Victoria and New South Wales, and flows to the sea through the colony of South Aus- tralia The Murrumbidgee is the longest and most important river of New South Wales, traversing many hundred miles of   magnificent agricultural and pastoral country, &...

CUNGEGONG, COOTAMUNDRA. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser — 7 August 1875

CUNGEGONG, COOTAMUNDRA.   [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] Another mob of 240 horses, from the Monaro district, in charge of Mr. Patterson, camped here on Friday night. Their desti nation is the same as the former mob, viz., Lushington Point, on the Murray. It seems to be a very hazardous undertaking travel ling with this kind of stock, and the loss in number is sometimes considerable. After being once frightened it ia very difficult to steady them; the simplest thing will start them off full cry. I heard Mr. Gardiner was 28 short before he left the Billabong. The monthly pay on the railway line, between Cootamuudra and Bethungra, took place on Saturday, the paymaster, Mr Duncan Anderson, from Bowning, being escorted by Sergeant McGee and another trooper. The usual spree passed off very quietly, as far as   Cungegong is concerned. With the excep tion of one man talking himself hoarse, in the endeavour to make himself heard half a a mile away, there was very li...

ITEMS OF NEWS. OWING to the late arrival of the Albury mail last night, we did not receive the usual weekly Melbourne wool, and stock reports, in time for publication to-day, IN another portion of this issue will be found the brief history of Wagga promised to our readers in our last. The gentleman who has supplied us with it must be par- doned for any slight inaccuracies that may have crept into his narrative, as he had but a very short notice given him, and consequently had only a day or two wherein to complete the matter, and write the tale of Wagga. THE Australian Journal for August is to hand. It contains the usual amount of varied and interesting matter, mostly relating to colonial affairs. The residents in this continent should not hesitate to support the only Australian magazine in existence, and it is truly cheap at sixpence. MESSRS. RENARD BROS., wool brokers, of Melbourne and Antwerp, have favoured us with a pamhlet setting out the advantage of Antwerp over London as a ma...
