Household Hints. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 29 August 1873

To MAKE GOOD BREAD.-Heat sour milk or buttermilk till the curd settles to the bottom. "Wet the flour with the whey, using yeast after the ordinary way in setting the sponge. 'When ; that is light mould into dough and Taise, then make into loaves, and when tbey are light bake in an oven not too hot. To CLEAN FLINT-GLASS BOTTLES, DECAN- TERS, &c.-Roll up, in small pieces, some ' whitey-brown or blotting-papër ; then wet Jáñd1 soap the same ; put them into the ' vessel, with a little luke-warm water ;. shake them well for a few minutes ; then rinse the "glass with clean water, and it will be as bright and clear as when new from the shops. To MAKE OLD KID GLOVES NEW.-Make a thick mucilage by boiling a handful of flax seed ; add a little dissolved soap ; then, when the mixture cools, with a piece of white flannel wipe the gloves previously fitted to the hand. Use only enough of the cleaner to take off the dirt, without wetting through the glove. BEEF COOKED IN A FRENCH MANNER. .'...

UNWIN'S BRIDGE, COOK'S RIVER. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 29 August 1873

TJNWIN'S BRIDGE, COOK'S RIVER, Most persons residing near Sydney are acquainted with the Cook's River Dam, which was commenced with the intention of securing a supply of fresh water for the metropolis of N. S. W. Although it proved useless for that purpose it will no doubt be available for the Sourthern Coast Railway, which our Government will soon see the necessity of laying down in order to bring coals from Wollongong to Sydney, and to secure the sale of the large tracts of land suitable for gentlemen's residences which exist along the coast. Such a railway, if constructed, would probably bring a large annual return. Aboiit a mile above the dam a wooden bridge was many years since built for the convenience of wood carters and persons residing on the south side of the river, as well as of travellers proceeding to George's River, and goes by the name of Unwin's Bridge. Cook's River affords many very pretty views, either from a boat or from the high ground on its southern side ; and ...

Ladies' Column. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 29 August 1873

Eames? Column* A MATTEB-OF-FACT WOMAN.-An Ameri- can editor describes a clergyman's wife wbo never forgot herself in any momentary fit of enthusiasm. She could count the clock amid Hs kisses, and look to see whether the pot was boiling with, her eyes full of tears he had wrung from them by some moving story. While he was listening in rapture to her singing, she would break qff in the mid- dle of averse to ask him what she should cook for supper ; and he would never forgive her for having once interrupted him while she was listening with deep emotion to his very best sermon, to tell him not to put on his left stocking the next morning till she lad mended it. A LITTLE STORY.-Fanny was pretty, and had a clear, sweet voice. Fred proposed to her, and she said "Yes." Revealing his happiness to his friend Frank, Fred told of the joyous ring there was in Fanny's voice when she accepted him. " A wedding ring, I suppose, old fellow," was Frank's neat reply.-Punch, Sidney Smith says : Among me...

LIMP PEOPLE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 29 August 1873

LIMP PEOPLE. VICE is bad, and malignant wickedness is. worse, but beyond either, in evil results, to mankind, is weakness, which, indeed, is the pabulum by which vice is fed, and the agent by which malignity works. If every one in this world had a back bone, there would not be nearly as much misery or guilt as there ; is now ; for we must give each individual of. the " cruel strong " a large following of victims ; and it would be easy to demonstrate that the progress of nations has always been in proportion to the number of stiff back» bones among '/them. Yet, unfortunately, Ump people abound, to the detriment of so- ciety, .and to their own certain sorrow-mol- luscs predestined to be the food of the stronger, with no power of self-defence or of self support, but having to be protected, against outside dangers if they are to be preserved at all ; and, perhaps, when you have done all you can do, not safe even then, and most likely not worth the trouble taken about them.

GEORGICS. BOOK II.—continued. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 29 August 1873

GEORGICS. BOOK ii.-continued. Light alder stems the Po's tempestuous tide, And bees in hollow oaks their honey hide. Now, balance, with these gifts, the fumy joys ' Of wine, attended with eternal noise. Wine urg'd to lawless lusts the Centaurs' train : Through wine they quarrell'd, and through wine were slain. O happy, if he knew his happy state, The swain, who free from bus'ness and debate, Receives his easy food from Nature's hand, And just returns of cultivated laud ! No palace, with a lofty gate, he wants, To admit the tides of early visitants, With eager eyes devouring, as they pass, The breathing figures of Corinthian brass. No statues threaten, from high pedestals : No Persiau arras hides his homely walls, With antic vests, which, through their shady fold, Betray the streaks of ill-disscmbled gold ; He boasts no wool, whose native white is dy'd With purple poison of Assyrian pride ; No costly drugs of Ai-aby defile, " | With foreign scents, the sweetness of his oil ; , But ea...

COAL IN TASMANIA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 29 August 1873

COAL IN TASMANIA. TASMANIA'S opportunity for the development ?of her mineral resources, more especially her coal and iron deposits, appears to have arrived now that these staples are commanding such high prices in the markets of the world. Both these minerals have for years past been known to exist in large quantities in various parts of the island, but hitherto, owing to a variety of circumstances, the principal being the want of enterprise amongst the colonists themselves, little or nothing has been done to turn them to account. At Seymour, on the east coast, and at one or two points along the north-west coast, coal has been worked for some time, but, beyond supplying to a very limited extent local requirements, it has not come into general use ; and, although many experiments have been tried with it on both sides of the Straits, it has never been found adapted for Bteam purposes. The prospect, however, of large quantities of coal being required in connection with the manu- , fact...

Selected Poetry. A COUNTRY HOME. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 29 August 1873

A COUNTRY HOME. Oh ! give me a home in the country wide, And a seat hy the farmer's wood fireside Where the fire burns bright On a frosty night Where the jest, the song, and the laugh are free ; Oh ! the farmer's home is the home for me. Oh ! give me a home in the country wide, Where the earth comes out as a blushing bride, With her buds and flowers, In the bright spring hours, Her bridal song ringing from fresh-leaved trees, And her melody floats on the perfumed breeze. In Summer, a seat in a shady nook, And close by the side of a purling brook, Where the violet grows, Or the pale swamp rose, Fainting, sick, 'neath the sun's scorching beam, Dips her pale petals in the cooling stream.' Oh ! give me a home in the country wide, In the golden days of a farmer's pride, When his barns are filled From the field he's tilled, And he feels that his yearly task is done, And, smiling at winter, he beckons him on.

ON FATTENING POULTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 29 August 1873

ON FATTENING- POULTRY. HATING discovered and published some months ago, that the Poultry Stock in this country produced an average return of £770,000 a year by their flesh and eggs, we place before our readers, so as to secure the greatest profit from this valuable but humble stock, Tegetmeier's method of fattening young fowls : "The chickens designed for being fattened should be well and liberally fed from the earliest period. It is a mistake to imagine that they can be kept low when young, and got up to a great size by liberal feeding when put up to fatten. The fowls so treated are stunted in their growth, the bony framework becomes set or fixed, and they never after- wards attain a large size ; whereas with libe- ral feeding they become fit for the fatting coop at the age of about four months in sum- mer, and from five or six in winter. It can- not be too strongly impressed upon those who are desirous of obtaining chickens of first-rate quality, that fowls are only in per- fectio...

Temperance Scraps. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 29 August 1873

Cemperame Scraps* -HEREDITARY DRUNKENNESS. - The off- spring of the confirmed drunkard, rich or poor, will inherit the original vice of some of its countless protean transformations. The external aspect may, in one case, be less re- volting and coarse than the other, but none, as a rule, can escape the inevitable law, writ- ten in the most hidden recesses of our nature, in accordance with which the children do suffer for the sins of the parent, and even at the third and fourth generation the taint is hardly wiped away, save by the extinction of line or family. For the disease which leads to these ead consequences there is but one cure-total and entire restraint, so as to pre- vent, -for a long period, any possibility of indulgence in the depraved tastes and habits; .even this is too often unsuccessful. For a time, under this enforced discipline, a cure seems to be effected ; but, when the subject of it is liberated, he too often takes unto him seven other devils, and the state of th...

HAIR JEWELLERY & ORNAMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 29 August 1873

HAIR JEWELLERY & ORNAMENTS. HAIR, that most imperishable of all the com- ponent parts of our mortal bodies, has always been regarded as a cherished memorial of the absent or lost. Impressed with this idea, it appears to us but natural that, of all the various employments in which deftness of touch is required, the manufacture of jewel- lery and ornaments in hair must be one of the most interesting. In order to know to what degrees of neatness and beauty this delicate material can be worked, it is ad- vised that those interested should visit the manufactory of Mr. George Binder, artist in hair, No. 86 Market-street east, and there inspect the many curious and beautiful forms of hair-work on view-alberts and guards, brooches, rings, studs, bracelets, ear-rings, &c , are shown of the most intricate design : while the miniature articles constructed for "charms," display a delicacy of workman- ship which is something marvellous. These comprise binocular opera-glasses, boa...

RAWORTH'S GALLERY OF NEW ZEALAND WATERCOLOURS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 29 August 1873

RAWORTH'S GALLERY OF NEW ZEA- LAND WATERCOLOURS. IT may not be out of place to inform the lovers of art that Mr. Raworth has removed his beau- tiful and interesting collection of paintings from Castlereagh-street to Lauriston Terrace, Phillip-street. During his residence in Syd- ney Mr. Raworth has added largely to the treasures of his atelier by sketching a num- ber of magnificent scenes in New South Wales. An immense painting, some 5 feet x 2 feet, effectively illustrates the grandeur of the mountain scenery of this colony. It is a veiw of Govett's Leap, and is, we under- stand, wJ?«n completed, to form the First Prize in an Art Union, which Mr. Raworth has in contemplation. There are few among us who are not pleased when passing an hour among faithful transcripts of nature in her various moods, and as the artist who has painted this valuable collection during a course of some years, has generously placed it for free exhibition to those who take a delight in * ' looking at picture...

LUCERNE GROWING. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 29 August 1873

LUCERNE GROWING. BY E. B. HEYNE. IN the earlier days of the colony, when grain growing alone claimed the attention of South Australian farmers-being, perhaps, as long as the fertility of a virgin soil would last, the most profitable, or yielding at least the quickest returns-but little or no notice was taken of the numerous and equally import- ant fodder plants, the culture of which, com- bined with that of grain, forms a very ma- terial link in modern farming. Exhaustion of the soil, the natural result of insufficient working, and, in many cases, cropping con- tinuously with the same, or nearly allied plants, gradually showed its damaging in- fluence on agriculture, so much so that, at the present time, large tracts of previously fertile lands are left unoccupied, or, at least, un- cultivated, being " wheat sick," as our farmers term it. A different system of farm- ing than that hitherto followed must thus be adopted, and this will force a regular sys- tem of rotation of crops upon...

DESIGN FOR IMPROVED WHARFAGE ACCOMMODATION, CIRCULAR QUAY. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 29 August 1873

DESIGN FOR IMPROVED WHARFAGE : ACCOMMODATION, CIRCULAR QUAY. BY MR. W. A. DEBEAKER. . THE plan (1) shews the arrangement I consider best to accommodate the greatest number of ships in Sydney Cove pr Basin, at the one time, without interfering with the steam-boat and ferry traffic, which has become an established necessity-as well as that the Circular Quay has become the fixed and acknowledged centre of the shipping and mercantile interests of the country, and will, in my opinion, ever remain so, as we feel assured that our railway system must, sooner or later, be connected with it. Nos. 2 and 3 is a sketch of my idea of the style of wharf and receiving stores : we would build 1 them, as shewn, on iron cylinders, filled with concrete, and the superstructures principally of iron, fitted with hoisting and other neces- sary machinery, of the most modern construc- tion-laying the water to every storey, with trap doors in all the floors, to permit of receiving from punts goods, at the mos...
