Went Both Ways Round the Earth. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 31 March 1894

Went Both Ways Round the Earth. The astonishing tremors to which the solid shell of the earth is subject are only just beginning to be made apparent by the delicate instruments of modern science. It is now known that the effects of earthquakes reach hundreds and thousands of miles beyond the | points at which they are perceptible to the unassisted human senses. In fact, the shocks of se?ere earthquakes appear in some cases to be transmitted completely arsund the globe. A remarkable example of this occurred on July 28, 1889, and has only recently, been brought to light. While examining the record of pendulum experiments at Potsdam, Herr Paschuitz happened to consult a volume of the publictions of the Seismological Society of Japan, an association for the study of earthquakes, and was surprised to find that a severe earthquake which had occurred at Kumamato on the date above mentioned coincided in time, allowance being made for transmission of the shock, with a double perturbation whi...

Queensland Stock Movements and State of the Country, (Queen slander, March 24 ) Fine weather has succeeded the heavy rainB of last week, and with the exception of showers — which, however, have been well distributed over the colony— there has been no rain to spenk of this week. There are now few districts where sufficient rain has not fallen tn hrnnl- ht- fl,n the pasture in good order. Work on the western stations, which ha? been almost at a standstill for months, will probably be resumed now that the season has changed, thuB providing employment for many men who have long been tramping the country in search of work. Stock are again on the move, most of the roads having been opened for travelling, though in some places tho ground is still too boggy and the creeks too high to make traffic an easy matter. Cheering news has just come to hand from Monkira station, near Windorah, an nouncing a complete break-up of the drought, the Diamantina River being in high flood. This portion of th...

Tiie messaees from London make it clear that the work of Lord Roeehery's Admiaistra tration ill the present neBginn of the Imperial Parliament will not be sensational. Atten tion naturally ib attracted first- by tbe position of the-Home Eule question. The Times says it is to be shelved, and that an early dissolu tion is more than ever probable. That is likely, and perhaps tho commonsenee and practical course taken by the, new 'Prime Minister is not palatable U- those 'who stand ready to prophesy evil, and who are disappointed because Lord Eoae bery.'disdains to act like a .New South 'Wales strike leader, and (o wage a war in which he would-be sure of defeat. It is'irritating to find an opponent taking instead of a course calculated to damage if not to wreck his cause, one which at least promises success. Lord 'Eosebery is sound on the -question of strengthening the British navy, as witness 'his own speeches and those of Sir ''William Harcourt. And he is equally sound on the question...
