The Month. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 8 June 1872

Cbe Month. THE month just over has been, probably, the most eventful one of the year. What with elections, political and social squabbles, mining speculations, holidays, sports, trials of criminals, &c., &c., the people of Syd- ney have had quite enough material to occupy their time and thought during the somewhat fretful period lying between the date of our last issue and that of the pre- sent. Beginning with political matters, we have to re- cord that the members of the new Government, under the leadership of Mr. Parkes, have all been re-elected five out of the seven having got in without opposition. The other two, Messrs. Parkes and Lloyd, did not fare so well ; still in the case of the former, results proved that the antagonist brought out against him had not the ghost of a chance. Mr. Jones, the gentleman in ques- tion, was warmly supported by the Orange party, who, strange to say, were embraced on the occa jJüöl'itUUTiVE EIKE AT MEáíSiiS.y^BAKKEií &.CÜ....

OUR MINES. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 8 June 1872

OUR MINES. ALTHOUGH at the close of the past month the business in.gold shares, was decidedly dull, the usual airiount of activity lias been displayed by promoters in bringing into the market new ventures, and for these new oppor- tunities for investment-many of them yet untried-the public appetite seems still eager. Money, which if calmly and judiciously applied, would do much towards developing the .enormous mineral treasures that are un- doubtedly secreted in the bowels of this colony, is lavishly expended on newly pegged out bits of ground, which may never yield a dividend, were the capital spent three times over. With some people, who have but a few pounds to invest, and who look to their weekly earnings to furnish means wherewith to meet " calls," if required, until-they have received dividends, find that calls are required, and no doubt feel them press . heavily already. It is all very well to enter one's name for so many shares in this, and so many in that, gold, tin, or cop...

MACHINERY BY MESSRS. P. N. RUSSELL.

The Quartz Crushing Plant will be specially interesting to our mining friends, and we trust to be in a position to illustrate this very important set of machinery in our next. _

DESTRUCTIVE FIRE AT BARKER'S TWEED FACTORY. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 8 June 1872

DESTRUCTIVE FIRE AT BARKER'S TWEED FACTORY. IT is with very deep regret -that we have to report the destruction by tire of the above valuable property, since our last issue. The fire was first discovered by Constable Sprowle and a person named Brock, who ob- served a bright glare shining through the windows of the second storey. No time was lost in giving the alarm, and Mr. Super- intendent Bown was speedily on the spot, to- gether with the men and engines attached to the Brigade. Shortly after the engines got into play the third floor fell in with a crash ; ascending from this to the upper floor, this also was speedily consumed, and the whole interior of the building appeared filled with flame. By this time the engines at- tached to the Volunteer Companies Nos. 1 and 2, had arrived ; but, though everything was done that experience could suggest, or energy carry into practice, nil attempts to stay the course of the fire in the main build- ing proved useless, and about the break of d...

WOOL. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 8 June 1872

WOOL. FOR years has New South Wales been famed for her tinè wool. Money, time, skill has unsparingly been given to bring it to a cer- tain standard. This, in combination with a genial climate and suitable pasturage, pro- duced an article that commanded and ruled a market, and enabled t¡he grower to send his fleeces to a sale 16,000 miles away, and with a native land carriage to Sydney in many cases of an equal or greater cost. And how was this successfully maintained ? Why, by producing an article of the greatest or highest value in the smallest possible bulk, and of a quality that could not be so profitably grown in a nearer position to the home demand. This was, and is the safety power of the wool {jrower of this country. It has secured mil ions of wealth, year after year, and will still continue to do so, if not destroyed by interference from unthinking persons. What the Agricultural Society could have been thinking of to permit a gentleman to lead or mislead them in the wool dep...

Ladies' Column. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 8 June 1872

laîrieô' Column, THE EARLY HISTORY OF CHIGNONS.-A Greek author, who lived in the second century of the Christian era, wrote a very learned book upon " Dreams, " m which he incident- ally refers to the belles of his day as wearing chignons, and adopting the same expedients (that are said to be) employed in this day, for the purpose of increasing their solidity and beauty. These are the words ascribed to Artemidous : " If a woman dreams that she has long and lovely hair, it is a dream signi- ficant of good luck, because woman, for the sake of adding to their attractions, make use other women's hair." The chignon 'of the second century, it must be admitted, was not so monstrous as the pyramid head-dress of of the Roman matrons of the first century, of which it is said by Juvenal, that a lady has her head piled up into so many folds and stories in height that when she faces you she looks so tall and stately as a tragedy queen, and when she turns her back she seems to be so diminutive as...

A BUSHMAN'S HOME Has now, thanks to our worthy police magis- . trate, Captain Scott, au d other gentlemen, a good chance of becoming an established fact. A meeting was held last Friday week, at the . Central Police Office, to initiate, proceedings - for this good purpose, and .fortunately suc- ceeded. Captain Scott was elected chair- man, and Mr. J. Walter Smart and Captain Evans kindly promised to undertake the ? duties of Honorary Secretary and Treasnrer. The committee formed, appointed a sub-com- mittee of Messrs. Scott, Dawson, and Evans, to frame and prepare rules and regulations, to be submitted to the Committee, at a meet- . ing to be held at the same place next Friday, the 14th inst. The object is to form an establishment in Sydney, and, bye and bye, in other, large . towns, where bushmen may immediately > find, on arrival, a respectable, clean, and comfortable home, and safe resting place, at « a moderate charge for their board and lodg- ing.

Elegant Arts for the Ladies. ORNAMENTAL LEATHER WORK. No. 3. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 8 June 1872

Elegant for ti)t áafctesu ORNAMENTAL LEATHER WORK. No. 3. ïx accordance with the promise made at the conclusion of our last article, we now give three designs for leather work frames, with detailed instructions for forming each. Fig. 1." We commence with the ROSE PATTERN (fig. 1.) . The arrangement we have adopted is that which we pursue in work- ing out each pattern ; and each piece of work being formed at the time we write, every necessary detail must be remem- bered and noted down. The STEM is formed by cutting a thin strip of leather, proportioned to the size of the stem ; the rough part is smeared with liquid glue, and the leather rolled so as to have the smooth surface on the outside - as directed in a former paper. It is then fixed to the frame by brads, and the branches are attached. The PRICKLES are formed by cutting angular pieces of leather, and rolling the apex between the finger and thumb, and are attached to the stem and branches by smearing the base "with liquid glue,...

Australian Natural Distory. THE LYRE BIRD (Menura Superba). [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 8 June 1872

australian i^atujtral fttítot$. THE LYRE BIRD (Menura Superba). WE have heard it said, nay, we have seen the assertion in print, that the woods and meadows of Australia are destitute of sing- ing birds. No assertion can be more erro- neous. All who have lived in "the bush," and have been accustomed to rise with the sun, can bear testimony to the fact that we have a full and fair supply of those feathered choristers whose presence gives life and cheerfulness to the wilderness. There is a small brown bird, one of the class called war- blers, which has a note equal, if not superior, to that of the English nightingale. Unhap- pily it is scarce, but there are many kinds of songsters which may be more frequently met with. Of these, the Lyre Bird stands in the first rank. Its own note is good, but its chief excellence is in its extraordinary powers of imitation. There is scarcely a sound which this bird will not imitate to perfection, and some imagine that the little mimic takes a pride in...

Chapters on Common Things SPICES, No. IV.—PEPPER. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 8 June 1872

Chapters on Common Cbingfi SPICES, No. IV.-PEPPER. WE will now proceed to mention tue most common and most useful of all spices-pep- per. This is divided into two kinds, white and black, which were formerly supposed to be the produce of two different sorts of trees, but it is now known that the varia- tion in colour and quality arises from the manner in which the berry is prepared for exportation. Pepper is the seed of a climb- ing plant called Piper nigrum, which is ex- tensively cultivated in Sumatra, and on the coast of Malabar ; it is common, also, in most of the East Indian Islands. The stem is of hard wood, covered with a smooth bark ; it is also knotted or jointed, and from each knot it will, if allowed to run along the ground, put forth roots. The leaves are placed singly at the joints of the branches j they are of an oval form, but having a sharp point ; extremely smooth upon the surface ; of a dusky green on the upper side, and paler underneath. They are marked by seven ne...

Accidents and Emergencies. ACCIDENTS BY FIRE.—(Continued). [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 8 June 1872

3afflf!tt8 anîr <£mergenne& ACCIDENTS BY FIRE.-(Continued). TREATMENT OP INJURIKS. - 1. Send for medical aid ; let the sufferer be put to bed as quickly as possible ; remove all remains of clothing about the injured parts, cutting with extreme caution, as it is of the first im- portance to avoid tearing the skin or break- ing a blister. 2. As the readiest thing at hand, cover all the injured parts tenderly with clean cotton wool, or what is commonly known as wad- ding-the cleaner and purer the better (the best for the purpose is kept by druggists) ; it relieves by excluding the air. Linen rag, soaked in a mixture of equal parts of lime water and linseed oil, also forms a good dress- ing. 3. It is better to avoid cold applications. They certainly allay pain ; but, unless the cold be maintained, the momentary relief is followed by a considerable aggravation of the suffering. In extensive burns, moreover, cold water freely applied is not unattended by danger. 4. From...

Mining Matters. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 8 June 1872

FROM the latest sources, we clip the follow- ing items relating to mining affairs : LITTLE RIVER, GRAFTON.--Our reefs con- tinue to yield some excellent stone. The Homeward Bound also promises well. Tea claims have been taken up on this reef ; what little stone has been taken out is very rich. It is a matter of great inconvenience to the miners to have to wait so long for the Gold Commissioner. I may say that he is very anxiously looked for. There is every appear- ance of an alluvial gold-field being opened near the river, about half-a-mile from the Homeward Bound-some very good pro- spects have been obtained, and several claims taken up. SOLFERINO, YULGILBAR.-This place has now the appearance of an old-established gold-field. Everything looks prosperous ; shares are selling at high figures ; store- keepers are well supplied with goods, which are sold at very reasonable prices. Mr. J. Laird has opened his new public-house, which is a very neat building, the like of which is seldom t...

OUR AMUSEMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 8 June 1872

OUR AMUSEMENTS. MR. AND MRS. GOURLAY (whose Protean Entertainments at the Scbool of Arts in times past, will be so pleasantly remembered) have opened, opposite the .Victoria Theatre, a neatly fitted-up suite of rooms, in which they exhibit much that will amuse and de- light. In the first place, there is a large and admirable collection of life-size wax figures, embracing many personages whose names are the "landmarks of history." These are well and appropriately dressed, and a catalogue supplies the visitor with some interesting facts concerning each. In a separate apartment are excellent wax effi- gies of Nichols and Lester, the condemned prisoners, together with some other noto- rious criminals-likenesses one can scarcely glance at without a shudder. In a spacious room on the first floor is dis- played the splendid collection of pressed ferns and sea-weed, gathered by Mrs. Gour- lay during a recent tour through New Zea- land. These, alone, are well worth a visit. During the evenin...
