Selections Grabe and Gay. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 2 August 1873

Selections #rabe anîi <£a¡\ AN ABSTRUSE CALCULATION.-Mr. O'Fla herty undertook to tell how many were at the party,-" The two Crogans was one, me self was two, Mike Finn was three, and and- who the mischief was four ? Let me see (counting his fingers), the two Crogans was one, Mike Finn was two, meself was three, and-bedad, there was four of us ; but St. Patrick couldn't tell the name of the other ! Now it's meself that have it ! Mike Finn was one, the two Crogans two, and me- self was three, and-be the power, I think there was but three of us, after all !" If a fool knows a secret, he tells it be- cause he is a fool ; if a knave knows one, he tells it wherever it is his interest to tell it. But women and young men are very apt to tell what secrets they know, from the vanity of having been trusted. Trust none of these, whenever you can help it. FOR BETTER OR WORSE.-A clergyman was called upon to marry a couple, and the man was so very drunk that the clergyman said, " I wil...

Oddities of History. CHARLES II. AND HIS BARBER. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 2 August 1873

Sities oîfâtetovv. CHARLES II. AND HIS BARBER. ONE day, while the king was being shaved, his impudent barber observed to him, that " he thought none of his Majesty's officers had a greater trust than he." "Oy," said the King, " how so, friend?" "Why," said the barber, " I could cut your Majesty's throat when I would." The King started up and said, " Odds fish ! that very thought is treason; thou shalt shave me no more." The barber of Dionysius, who made the same remark, was crucified for his garrulity ; but Charles was not cruel. His loquacious bar- ber was only dismissed.-Cunningham's Story of Nell Gwynne. ENGLISH DRESS. A certain old father, soured by the cir- cumstances of his lot, relieved some of his spleen by defining woman as Anglicè, an animal that delights in finery ; and this say- ing, naturally so acceptable to disappointed gentlemen of all orders, continued an au- thority even to the time of the amiable Spectator, who was not ashamed to- quote it. We had, nevertheless, l...

COAL. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 2 August 1873

COAL. " TUB distribution of the coal fields in Bri- tain at once indicates the seats of manufac- turing industry. There are large districts both in England and Scotland incapable of affording employment and subsistence to a numerous population, from the want of coal. These districts are either occupied as the scenes of agricultural labours, or are surren- dered to sheep and deer. On the contrary, the central counties of England and Scotland are also the busy centres of the population. From its proximity to a mere patch of the English coal measures, a detached portion not exceeding the area of one of the larger Scottish lakes, Birmingham has risen to the I rank of the first iron manufacturing town in the world. Manchester and Glasgow have equally derived their manufacturing and j commercial importance from being placed in the centre of a great coal basin. The econo- mical and industrial importance of the union of coal and iron in this island cannot be over- estimated. To their abunda...

Curiosities of Animal and Vegetable Life. THE LANGUAGE OF ANIMALS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 2 August 1873

Cunoôtttfô of Animal an& Vegetable 3QTe* THE LANGUAGE OF ANIMALS. WE know that there are many creatures on the earth which are utterly unconscious oí man ; and we might, if we were not too proud, ask ourselves, in like manner, if there may not be many things in the animal crea- tion of which man is necessarily unconcsious If we walk through the woods on a bright summer day, or sit under the oaken oi beechen shadows, we are conscious of a tide and tremor of life around us. We hear th« birds singing, twittering, and chattering, each species with its own peculiar note. W( hear the bees and the flies buzzing with mon or less vigour, pertinacity, and volume oi sound ; while a faint echo comes from th« distant pastures of the bleating of sheep, tin lowing of cattle, the barking of the shep- herds' dogs, and the lusty crowing of thc cook in tbe farm-yard. We ask ourselves whether all these various sounds may not be as m ¿ny languages, perfectly intelligible tc the creatures which s...

Ladies' Column. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 2 August 1873

bâtîtes? Column* A STATE GOVERNED AND DEFENDED BY WOMEN. - Among tliè colonial possessions, .or, more correctly, dependencies of Holland, there is a remarkable little state which, in its constitution and the original customs of its inhabitants, surpasses the boldest dreams of the advocates of " women's rights." In the island of Java, between the cities of Ba- tavia and Samarang, is the kingdom of Ban- tam, which, although tributary to Holland, is an independent state, politically without importance, yet happy, rich, and, since time immemorial, governed aud defended by wo- men. The sovereign is indeed a man, but all the rest of the government belongs to the fair sex. The king is entirely dependent upon his state council, composed of three women. The highest authorities, all state officers, court functionaries, military com roariders, and soldiers are, without excep- tion, of the female sex. The men are agri- culturists and merchants. The body-guard of the king is formed of the female...

Childers, late Agent-general in London, and which now graces the walls of our National Gallery of Art. Its immense dimensions, ' are about 20 ft. by 15 ft.

FELLING A GIANT GUM TREE IN THE RANGES. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 2 August 1873

FELLING A GIANT GUM TREE IN THE RANGES. In most of the Australian ranges are to be found gum trees of such a marvellous height as to rival the Wellingtonia of California, hitherto regarded as the tallest trees in the world. A fallen gum tree has been known to measure 480 feet in length, but this is an uncommon height. Some show a height of 295 feet to the first branch, the height then extending 70 feet further in ramifications to i the broken,top branch, which, at the place of fracture, still measured 3 feet across. The stems of these gigantic eucalypti are as straight as arrows, and for the greater part FELLING A GIANT GUM TREE IN THE RANGES. of the length branchloss. Some of the larger sort have been found to measure about 80 feet in circumference at a distance of four feet from the ground. There are two varieties : one is called eucalypta radiata, of which the stem is beautifully smooth and of an ashy color, inasmucli as the outer layer of bark periodically falls off; the other i...

Poetry. "QUI VIVE!" [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 2 August 1873

poetry "QUI VIVE!" ny w ' .»? ' . By OLIVER WENDALL HOLMES. " Qui VIVE ! " The sentry's musket rings, The channelled bayonet gleams ; .Kigh o'er him, like a raven's wings The broad tri-coloured banner flings Its shadow, rustling as it swings Pale in the moonlight beams ; Pass on ! while steel-clad sentries keep Their vigil o'er the monarch's sleep, Thy bare, unguarded breast Asks not the unbroken, bristling zone That girds yon sceptred trembler's throne ; Pass on, and take thy rest ! " Qui vive J " How oft the midnight air That startling cry has borne ! How oft the evening breeze has fanned The banner of this haughty land, O'er mountain snow and desert sand, Ere yet its folds were torn ! Through Jena's carnage flying red, Or tossing o'er Marengo's dead, Or curling on the towers Where Austria's eagle quivers yet, And suns the ruffled plumage, wet With battle's crimson showers ! " Qui vive ! " And is the sentry's cry, The sleepless soldier's hand, Are these,-the painted folds that fly...

Literature. TALES IN THE CAMP. No. II. MRS. ASHTON'S GHOST. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 2 August 1873

literature* TALES IN THE CAMP. No. II. MRS. ASHTON'S GHOST. BY. F. WESTBURY. T the present time, when Faith is thrust aside and Reason is brought to bear on all matters connected with the mysterious or supernatural, one cannot help feeling a kind of good humour and pity for those people who delight in relating stories of ghosts and goblins. In our practical day of £ s. d. we have no time to indulge in any obtruse question relative to anything beyond the laws of nature. We have no time for aught else but making money and spending it. Nevertheless, there is a tinge of superstition in us all, pooh, pooh, the matter as we may : even the most sceptical, did they but speak the truth, would admit that there is a unity between the material and the immaterial worlds which they can neither understand nor describe-still less deny. I vemember reading of an old Scotch farmer who was a thorough sceptic regarding apparitions. The old gentleman was in the habit of frequenting a certain^tavern, in P...

Chapters on Common Things No. XV. PAPER & PAPER-MAKING. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 2 August 1873

Chapters on Common Cbmgô No. XV. PAPER & PAPER-MAKING. PAPER has come to play such an important part in the social, intellectual, and com- mercial relations of mankind, that even a temporary stoppage of the supply would amount to a calamity. It is almost the only article manufactured for which no convenient Bubstitute could be obtained. Our woollens, linens, and cottons, could stand substitute for each other ; but what substance is there that would serve so many purposes as paper, or serve them so well ? It is the vehicle of written thought between nations and indi- viduals, and without it the art of printing could not have been made available, except in a costly, and consequently limited, way. Viewed in that light, it may be said that paper has contributed more to the advance- ment of the human race than any other material employed in the arts. As an article of manufacture and commerce, it occupies an important place, giving employment to many thousands of persons, and util...

EXAMPLES I AND II.—THE DUMBFOUNDERED CREDITOR—THE DASHING DEBTOR. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 2 August 1873

EXAMPLES I AND II.-THE DUMBFOÜNDKRED CREDITOR-THE DASHING DEBTOR. Mr. Golightly, who had been absent for a year or so from a neighbourhood where he had exercised with great skill and cheerful- ness the profession of debtor, on his return met Mr. Ledger, a creditor, whom he had patronized, whereupon ensued this dialogue : Mr. Ledger-" Welcome back to-, Mr. Golightly ; I hope you have returned to settle." Mr. Golightly (avoiding the term settle) " Oh dear, no ! Only a flying visit-I leave next train." Mr. Ledger, (hesitatingly)-"By-the-by, there is a little matter standing between us." Mr. Golightly (with a smiling air of uncon ciousness)-" A little matter ?" Mr. Ledger-"Why, yes ! When you left there was a small sum due of sixteen shillings." Mr. Golightly (wonderingly)-' ' To me ? " Mr. Ledger-" No ;;, to me. Don't you remember it ? " Mr. Golightly (airily)-"My dear Sir, do you think it takes TWO persons to remember such a trifle as sixteen shillings ? " Ledger, dumbfoundered by the...

BY ONE OP THEM. INTRODUCTORY. Short-sighted observers are apt to regard creditor and debtor as natural enemies. I choose to consider them in a more philo- sophic light. Illustration.-The whale is occasionally attended by a fish (by the by, a whale scienti- fically registered is not a fish) of the same species, but smaller, called a thrasher, which, more active than its unwieldy relative, diverts itself by thrashing the whale in such wise as to persuade the spectator that it is actuated by malice. Naturalists, however, considering that the whale is persecuted by a great variety of parasites, affirm that nature has designed the thrasher to relieve it from those unwelcome guests who w...
