COLONIAL AND PROVINICIAL.

10 December 1859, Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer (NSW : 1845 - 1860), page 2

…We recently stumbled across this story in Trove and thought it too good not to share: The Magisterial Chair at Wagga Wagga On Monday last Mr. Thomas Hammond, of Junee, was sworn in a magistrate of the territory before Mr. Henry Baylis, P.M. [Police Magistrate], under a writ of dedimus protestatem [sic].  After the oath had been taken, it was of course, competent for Mr Hammond to take his seat upon the Bench, but this was easier said than done, seeing that there was nothing to sit upon.  At present the furniture in the Court-house at Wagga Wagga, belonging to the Government, consists of one chair, or rather the remains of a chair, for it has only three legs and no bottom,…

4 August 1914, Daily Advertiser (Wagga Wagga, NSW : 1911 - 1954), page 2

…“Universal Calamity Impending: The World’s Greatest War” was the news headline in The Daily Advertiser from 4 August 1914.   The phrase sums up well the air of foreboding that we imagine was hanging around on that day. It was on 4 August that Britain declared war on Germany.  And where Britain went, Australia was determined to follow.…

6 November 1872, Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter (NSW : 1868 - 1875), page 3

…As early as 1872, there were definitely bicycles in the Wagga area.  On November 6, 1872, a Grand Bicycle Race was held as part of the sports programme for the Prince of Wales’ birthday at Wagga Wagga.  The advertisement for the event stated that the bicycle race had been added to the programme “by request”; we might assume from this that it had not been the organisers’ original intention to include the race, but that they had been approached by a couple of enthusiasts.…
