The Veterinarian. INFLAMMATION.-II. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 14 April 1866
The Veterinarian. INFLAMMATION.-II. EXUDATION of the lymph is the first cha-&lt;*> racteristic termination of inflammation. In healthy subjects the out-poured lymph solidifies speedily, as is well seen in the exudation oc- curring in open joints, or simple flesh wounds. In these cues it constitute* valuable repantive material*, which most by no memo, he removed or washed away, and into which, after a short time, blood-vessels and nerres extend from the contiguous living tissues. In the serous cavities, as in cases of pleurisy, it remains shut out from the air, remains longer fluid, and tends to form fibrous bands, producing adhesions. The lymph poured out on the mucous surfaces, in unhealthy subjects, in chronic cases, or where the inflammation has been so intense as to pro duce extensive destruction of tissue, is lets plastic and fibrinous, and gradually softening and breaking up, forms pus. Suppuration, or the formation of pus appears to be a natural effort to remove th...
SCIENTIFIC FARMING. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 14 April 1866
SCIENTIFIC FARMING. AT the meeting of the Northern Agricultural Society, held at Auburn, one of the speakers, Mr. Adam Kelly, a practical farmer, gave a backhanded blow at certain classes of persons who have been laying down the law at to im proved methods of farming. Spe&king of the j beet modes of cultivation, Mr. Kelly is reported to hare said:—" The information on that sub ject gained through the press was not from farmers, but from doctors, editors, and squat ters. There was one scientific gentleman who had said the farmers were ruining their land, and committing suicide in so doing, and threw out suggestions whereby they might prove it He thought it would be much better if those gentlemen first tried the experiments themselves to see it they succeeded, as many farmers could not afford to go experimentalising; but if they saw that they could realise any profits, they would, no doubt, follow up the mat ter. But many did not wish to work out other people's ideas." It is b...
SERICULTURE IN QUEENSLAND. NO. VIII. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 14 April 1866
SERICULTURE IN QUEENSLAND. NO. VIII. BY MRS. A. TIMBRELL. "THE total number of persons employed, in-&lt;*> cluding dyers, scourers, makers of machines, foremen, clerks, &c., may be safely estimated at not less than 70,000. "In Scotland—Lanark, 4 ; Renfrew, 1 ; total, 5. Grand total (England and Scotland), 277 factories. Ireland has none. " The figures above do not, however, repre sent the total number of persons employed in the manufacture of Bilk goods. In some branches of the trade, as, for instance, that of ribbons, the manufacture is still for the most part a domestic one, the spinning and wearing being earned on in the cottages of the work people. " The silk manufacture exhibits another instance of the good effects which have arisen from the removal of legislative interference and protection. In 1821, 1822, and 1823, when the restrictive system was in full vigor, the raw and thrown silk imported did not exceed 2,329,000 lbs., whilst that of 1830 amounted to 7...
The Naturalist. EXPORTATION OF SALMON OVA TO AUSTRALIA. (From the Australian and New Zealand Gazette, January 27.) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 14 April 1866
The Naturalist. EXPORTATION OF SALMON OVA TO AUSTRALIA. (From the Australian and New Zealand Gazette, January 27.) TO the uninitiated reader the task of safely transporting salmon or trout ova may possibly appear a very simple affair. None but those actually engaged in it can have the slightest slightest idea of the numberless difficulties attending the collection and impregnation of the ova, their safe package and conveyance in the hold of a ship during so long a voyage, in which every degree of temperature, from tropical heat to severe cold, may be experienced. The ova are so frail and delicate, that the slightest rough treatment—a sndden shake, contact with dirt, and so forth—destroys them by hundreds; so susceptible of atmospheric changes that, with all the care that has been bestowed on the mat ter, and all the experience that has been ob tained, it is still only by shipping very large quantities that a successful result, upon a prac tical scale, can be expected. To Sir William...
THE CATTLE DISEASEÂ—RINDERPEST. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 14 April 1866
THE CATTLE DISEASE—RINDERPEST. THE following description of the general symptoms of the cattle disease called Rinderpest, drawn up by Professor Seifmann, of the Ve-&lt;*> terinary College at Warsaw, has been received in a despatch addressed to Lord Russell by her Majesty's Consul-General at that city : — " The rinderpest was at first considered to be confined to cattle, but it has now, however, been found to extend to sheep, hitherto not with the same virulence. The contagious quali ties of this disease exceed those of any known disease of man or beast; and, for this reason, when once propagated, it is ex tremely difficult to arrest its progress. The contagion is conveyed not only bj infected cattle, but by those apparently sound, by pigs, poultry, hides, manure, bones, offal, straw, buildings, and the clothes of herds men, or others; in fact by every substance which has been in contact with the diseased cattle. A beast, once infected, rarely recovers; so that the proport...
