Oddities of History. ECCENTRIC BENEVOLENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 29 August 1873
ECCENTRIC BENEVOLENCE. Henry Lee Warner, of Walsingham Abbey, in Norfolk, born in 1722, was the descendant of John Warner, Bishop of' Bochester, to whose estates he succeeded. Mr. Pratt, in his Gleanings, describes him as a gentleman in the possession of a once finely-wooded do- main, of great politeness and urbanity, much reading, of sound understanding, who, never- theless, allowed almost every tree which his domain had to boast to be deliberately cut down and carried away, without so much as making any manner of inquiry after the offenders, or entering into any remonstrance as to their past, present, or future depreda- tions, though this went to the loss of £20,000. Whoever has a mind to it goes into his stable, saddles or harnesses a horse, and rides or ploughs with him, brings him home at night, or keeps him a week or a fortnight together, without so much as a question being asked by the squire ; and what is worse, they not only steal wheat, barley, and other grain from the fie...

Chapters on Common Things No. 16. IRON. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 29 August 1873
Chapter* on Common Cftmgô No. 16. IRON. THE splendid colour of gold, its great den- sity, its imperishable nature, and its compa- rative scarcity, have obtained for it the epithet of precious ; although, in point of j utility to man, iron has far higher and more numerous claims to such a title. The innumerable applications of iron in our own day result from the various useful properties of this metal. It can be brought to a fluid state, and made to assume what- ever form has been given to the mould de- signed to receive it ; it can be drawn out into bars of any degree of strength, or into wires of any degree of fineness ; it can be spread out into plates or sheets ; it can be twisted and bent in all directions ; it can be made hard or soft, sharp or blunt. Iron may be regarded as the parent of agriculture, and of the useful arts ; for without it the plough- share could not have rendered the earth fer- tile. Iron furnishes the scythe and the pruning-hook, as well as the sword and the...
CAPE COAST CASTLE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 29 August 1873
CAPE COAST CASTLE. NOT many days ago European telegrams an I nounced that the Ashantees on the Gold Coast of Africa had once again been giving trouble to British arms. It was notified that the Imperial troops had defeated 3000 Ashan- tees and had burned the city of Elmina, at Cape Coast Castle, because the inhabitants sided with the Ashantees. Our engraving represents Cape Coast Castle, a port near the town of the same name, the capital of the British settlements on the Gold Coast. It was first settled in 1610 by the Portuguese ; but they were dislodged a few years after- wards by the Dutch, who were in their turn ejected in 1661 by the British, in whose hands the place has remained ever since. The for- tress, which is large and well built, stands on a rock close to the sea, and projects in bold relief from the surrounding dark green forests. With the exception of a few houses for Europeans, the town consists of straggling lines of mud huts, with clusters of palm trees, and an occas...
THE NEW GATES AT THE BOTANIC GARDENS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 29 August 1873
THE NEW GATES AT THE BOTANIC GARDENS. A LONG-F ELT want in connection with these Gardens has just been supplied by the erec I tion of a very handsome gate at the princi- pal entrance. The following particulars may I prove interesting to some of our readers : I The iron work is from the manufactory of ! Mr. Eobert Dunlop, of Forbes-street, Wool- loomooloo. The gates are of wrought iron, I and cost £145. The height of the large middle gate is 13 feet 6 inches, and of the smaller 10 feet 3 inches. The carriage-way is ll feet, and the width of the side entrances I about 4 feet 3 inches. The large gate weighs about 16 cwt., and the smaller ones 5 cwt. I The crown and letters V.R. and other orna- mental parts of the iron work will be gilt, and the remaining portion painted a mauve colour. The masonry is the work of Messrs. Hanson and Sharp, and reflects the highest credit on these gentlemen for the excellent manner in which they have finished their labour. The stone piers (4 in number) ar...
THE SHAH OE PERSIA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 29 August 1873
THE SHAH OE PERSIA. THE greatest lion of tlie day in Europe is undoubtedly the Shah of Persia. Nasr-ed Din, the present ruler of Persia, is the son of the late Mehemet Shah and Queen Vellial, of the Kadjar tribe, and grandson of Abbaz Mirza. He was born in the year 1829, and was called to the throne in 184S. He has mastered both French and English, is well acquainted with history, arid has a correct idea of the relations in which he stands to each of the European powers. Although endowed with considerable energy of cha- racter, he is mild in manner, and is simple in his habits of private life. Though the Go- vernments of Great Britain and Persia were at war in 1859, when the latter sustained a humiliating defeat, the Shah has of late years acted in the most friendly manner towards England. In 1S66, a treaty for establishing telegraphic communication between Europe and India through Persia was signed at Tehe- ran. Of Nasr-ed-Dtn so many prodigies of acuteness are published that, if a...
NEW NORFOLK. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 29 August 1873
NEW NORFOLK. NEW Norfolk is decidedly the garden of Tasmania, and certainly no river in the world is more picturesque than the Derwent. It is not only rich in beauty, hut in every diver- sified form of beauty. Its wooded heights, its cultivated banks, the fertile valleys ever and again opening to the eye, and its long stretches of pasture land, dotted with animals grazing on its dainty verdure, present a scene that is indeed a holiday enjoyment to look upon. Our artist has represented the Derwent, near New Norfolk, winding between banks clothed with luxurious vegetation, and putting one in mind of some stream in far off England. The characteristics of Australian river scenery are happily wanting ; no bare banks meet the eye, and the flow of the river is not impeded by sunken snags or by gigantic trees rearing their heads from its very bed.
VIEW OF NEWCASTLE, N.S.W. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 29 August 1873
VIEW OF NEWCASTLE, N.S.W. OWING to the agitation of the coal question at present, both in England and the colonies, Newcastle is daily increasing in importance, and its name is becoming a "household word " among the various countries of the globe, wherever black diamonds are needed. Newcastle is distant from Sydney about seventy-five miles. It was formerly called Kingstown, and the river Hunter was origi- nally known as the Coal River, by which name it is called in all old records of the colony. At the mouth of the river, and in the fairway of vessels, stood an island known as Coal Island, but now called "Nobby's," and which has been long since connected with the main land by a strongly constructed breakwater. This not only tends to keep the channel of the river deep by narrowing it, and thus increasing the scour, but also shelters the harbour from the South-east gales, which sometimes blow with greatfierce ness. The entrance to the Port of Newcastle lies somewhat embayed, between t...
THE RIP DISASTER AT PORT PHILIP HEADS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 29 August 1873
THE RIP DISASTER AT PORT PHILIP HEADS. THE vessels engaged in the pilot service at the Port Philip Heads have often been in circumstances of danger while passing'through the rip, but since the establishment of the station no serious occurrence has taken place until about eleven a.m. on the morning of 15th July. At that time the pilot schooner Pdp was going out to take up her station and relieve the Corsair. As the schooner went out in the ebb tide she was met with some very heavy seas. Off Point Nepean one of them curled on board from under the counter, and filled the belly of the mainsail. The strain was so great that the mainmast and boats were carried away, and the deck cleared. What is of more serious import, the wave also washed overboard four men. These were Mr. John M'Kenzie, one of our most efficient pilots, John Wells, the steward, and two of the crew of the Rip. ' The vessel was in so disabled a condition, and the sea so heavy, that it was impossible to do anything to resc...
SPENCER'S ROYAL POLYTECHNIC. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 29 August 1873
SPENCER'S ROYAL POLYTECHNIC. "WE again call attention to this museum of beautiful and curious objects. Anything better calculated to interest and instruct the minds of the young especially can scarcely be imagined. The curious inventions with which the rooms abound, must give rise to much thought and enquiry in youthf ul minds, and thus implant the germs of that thirst for knowledge which is the best incentive to its attainment. Those who have the charge of families and schools cannot expend a few shillings more judiciously than by taking the young to inspect the many instructive ob- jects at Spencer's.
WRECK OF THE RANGITOTO STEAMSHIP. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 29 August 1873
WRECK OF THE RANGITOTO STEAM- SHIP.,* r UN the arrival ot the steamer Wellington in port yesterday afternóou, the public learned that the fine screw steamer Rangitoto, be- longing to Messrs. M'Median, Blackwood, and Co.'s line, had become a total wreck. On the 31st ult., at noon, both the Rangi- toto and the Wellington were lying along- side the wharf at Nelson, and as the vessels were getting up steam it became currently reported that there was to be a friendly trial of speed between the two boats. The Ran- gitoto got under way first, but she was very closely followed by the Wellington. Both vessels kept close together for some time, and, as the Wellington began to pipe ahead of the Rangitoto, a little friendly chaff was in- dulged in by some of the Wellington's pas- sengers with those of the Rangitoto. As the Wellingtan got out of line with her con- sort, she gradually increased the distance, until, at the French Pass, the Wellington had gained about half an hour on her rival. Nig...
GOURLAY'S VARIETY ROOMS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 29 August 1873
GOURLAY'S VARIETY ROOMS. THIS interesting exhibition will be open only for a short time previous to its making a tour through the country, and persons who have not yet visited it, or who wish to in- spect its various attractions once again, will do well to call early. To dwellers in the country, the arrival of such a mammoth col- lection of curiosities and mechanical wonders will be an event in the annals of their exist- ence ; and we can predict for Mrs. Gourlay o.u.'nvnr? rmmber of visitants to her exhibition rs," natural and mechanical.
The Month. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 29 August 1873
Cöe ¿nonti)* THE leading feature of the month, has been a remark- able "upward tendency " (as the Trade Circulars ex- press it) in that always scarce article, Philanthropy'. . The latent horror of vice, which ever exists in a greater or lesser degree in every Christian community, is being aroused into vigour by the increasing prevalence of im- morality in our metropolis. Virtue is too apt to adjust herself comfortably, yet coldly, to the heart in which she dwells-like a toad encased in stone ; and it is, perhaps, well, when some surrounding vice breaks the rocky casket, liberates the living principle within, and warms it into activity. Jf the charity which is really in existence in our com- munity, though frozen in its channels, only had free course, we should not be astounded by the revelations of the city'jr "sins and sorrows"-so graphically de pioted by-a-reverend lecturer a few évenings ago. To really know the depravity and immorality which* exists amongst us, it needs the testi...
OUR SUPPLEMENT. "MEET OE THE SYDNEY HUNT CLUB." [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 29 August 1873
OUR SUPPLEMENT. "MEET OE THE SYDNEY HUNT CLUB." IT; is rather singular that the formation of such a club as the above did not engross the attention of our sportsmen long ago, and that the old English pastime of hunting had not been engrafted among our colonial recreations in years past. We are glad to see that a Hunt Club in Sydney is now a re- cognised fact, and that it appears to be gain- ing favour rapidly. It originated in April of the present year ; and, considering the diffi- culties with which the committee have to contend, the successful manner in which the arrangements have been carried out is some- thing surprising. The affairs of the club are managed by a committee of ten gentlemen : Messrs. E. K. Cox, J. de V. Lamb, G. F. Want, George Lloyd, C. Thorne, J. G. L. Innes, (Hon.) Arch Thompson, R. Wynne, Ed. Terry, and Ed. Lee. His Excellency Sir Hercules Robinson, is President of the Club, and Mr. Geo. Lloyd Honorary Secre- tary ; Captain Airey was appointed Master, the houn...
ON SMUTS—continued. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 29 August 1873
ON SMUTS-continued. 10. IL 12. 13. 14. 15. THK interesting experiments of the Rev. M. I. Berkely on the germination of "hunt" spores have been already alluded to. They were undertaken shortly after the outbreak of the potato disease, to ascertain if possible the mode by which the minute spores of the fungi inoculate growing plants ; and although at the time only a growing suspicion of tho nature of the bodies resulting from the germination of "bunt" spores was enter- tained, succeeding examinations in the same direction have brought to light extraordinary facts, and manifests the progress of the' successive development bf four generations. The spores of "bunt" are larger than those of the different species of "smut," and reticulated on the surface, No. 10. When they are made to germinate, a sort of stem is protruded, No. ll, upon which small clusters of elongated thread-like spores of the second generation, or spoi'ida, are produced, No. 12. After a short time these spores conjugate...
THE SAW MILL AT NOWRA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 29 August 1873
THE SAW MILL AT NOWRA. During tlie last year and a half the chan- nel through the har at the mouth of the Shoalhaven Uiver has opened sufficiently to admit coasting vessels of a moderate ton- nage, and the valuable wood sawn at the Nowra mill supplies some of them with a ready cargo. Orders are constantly received from Sydney and places along the coast, and the quantity of timber along the Ulladulla road is very large. Nowra itself is gradu- ally becoming of consequence, and as a town must ultimately take the lead in the district. It already possesses three stores, a court- house, and a national school. The Presby- terians are now building a very handsome church, and the Roman Catholics have for years had a temporary chapel there. The views from Nowra are very fine, and those from the portions of it which are bounded by the Shoalhaven River and Nowra Creek are particularly beautiful. Nowra stands on high ground, and is not only secure from the floods which devastate Terrara and the ...
