CUMBERLAND CATTLE DISEASE. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 31 December 1859
CUmEacaLaoD CATcrs DI?ScEASE.--It is feared that thisI disease has appeared in this neighborhood. A few days ago Mr. Thomas East had two choice dairy cows die very suddenly, and he is of opinion that they died of this disease. Mr. East says aday or.two before the death of his cows, he noticed a heifer belonging to his neigh bor lying dead in a water-hole where his cattle drank. Mr. East's catts were both milchers, and on the day previous to the death of each, neither gave scarcely any milk.

He did not try any remedy to save his cows, but he thinks that bleeding might have had some beneficial efficacy. WEAT?Ea.-\Wo have this week had an abundance of rain. This will put forth the most beneficial influence, which will extend itself to nearly all conditions of men in the place.

THE NEW RIFLED CANNONS AND THEIR EFFECTS. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 4 January 1860
TIE NEW .RIFLED CANNONS AND TIHEIR EFFECTs.--Since the Trusl?, 14, steam floating battery, returned to her former moorings opposite Upnor Castle, Chatham, she has undergone an examination in order to ascertain the amount of injuries she met with during the experiments that were made on her with a view of testing her capabilities of resisting the effects of the shot fired from the Armstrong cannons at Shoebury ness. Tile result of the survey has demon strated that this new kind of iron-cased floating batteries presents comparatively no resistance vwhatever to tile shots from the Armstrong guns. Although the Trusty is covered with massive wrought-iron plates, of extraordinary thickness, yet every shot that struck them shivered the plates to pieces and entered the vessel; some of the shots, it is evident from the examination, havinlg passed throughl tlhe iron plates and beams of the battery on one side, and through thle timber and iron casing of the vessel on the other.

Your readers will, therelore, perhaps, be interested to know what impression those visits have left upon a clergyman of the Church of England accustomed to the meridian of the metropolis. On my arrival I avoided committing myself to any particular guidance. I wanted to see for myself; not to take up any one sect's or party's cue; and for this purpose I went among the people, quietly entering into their houses, and engaging in friendly conversation with them. Such visits I found always welcomed. My first visit was to a row of c...
