Steam Boat again to Gundagai

8 October 1859 Wagga Wagga Express and Murrumbidgee District Advertiser

The Steamer, The Albury, Captain Johnson, arrived on Wednesday evening about 6 p.m. and left again on Thursday for Gundagai, where she was to leave the steam saw mill which is going to Adelong and sundry other goods.

Captain Johnson had but a very small quantity of goods consigned to this place, but on Thursday morning he "traded," as the Yankees call it, to some extent with our storekeepers.

Further experience, however, only serves to confirm the general impression that the uncertainty which at present attends the movements of the steamers completely destroys any benefit we might derive from their occasional visits and renders the navigation of the Murrumbidgee, as hitherto carried on, rather a curse than a blessing.
