Curiosities of Animal and Vegetable Life. THE PASSENGER PIGEON. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 27 September 1873

Curioöttte of animal an* Vegetable THE PASSENGER PIGEON. AUDUBON" has touched upon this remarkable bird, and his account is as follows :-" In the autumn of 1813, I left my house at Hen- derson, on the banks of the Ohio, on my way to Louisville. In passing over the Barrens, a few miles beyond Hardenshurgh, I observed the pigeons flying from north-east to south- west in greater numbers than I thought I had ever seen them before. I travelled on, and still met more the farther I proceeded. The ' air was literally filled with pigeons. The light of the noonday was obscured as by an eclipse. Before sunset I reached Louisville, distant from Hardensburgh fifty-five miles. The pigeons were still passing in undimin- ished numbers, and continued to do so for three days in succession. . . . Let us take a column of one mile in breadth, which is far below the average size, and suppose it passing over us at the rate of one mile per minute. This will give a parallelogram of 180 miles by 1, covering ...

Chapters on Common Things No. 17. WONDERS OF THE COTTON MANUFACTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 27 September 1873

Chapters tin Common {Rungs No. 17. WONDERS OF THE COTTON MANUFACTURE. A BAG- of cotton, even in its unmanufactured state, is a wonderful example of commercial enterprise and tact ; for the quantity of the fibrous material yielded by each plant is exceedingly small, and the "magic of num- bers" is required to make up a bag or bale. Considerably more than a million of such bales of raw cotton are now brought to Liverpool yearly ; while in 1755 only five bales of American cotton were imported. Nothing can excite the attention of a stranger more than the enormous trains of trucks laden with cotton which run smoothly over the thirty miles between Liverpool and Manchester, and deposit their^stores at the terminus. The perfection of the cotton machinery, and the wonderful rapidity with which the raw fibre can be manufactured into cloth, may be illustrated by the follow- ing example :-A Preston manufacturer pur- chased some raw cotton, which was dis- patched from Liverpool at three o'clock ...

THE ROYAL EXCHANGE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 27 September 1873

THE ROYAL EXCHANGE. i a ERE is no place in town which I so much love to frequent as the Royal Exchange. It gives me a secret satisfaction, and in some measuregratifiesmy vanity as an Englishman, to see so rich an assembly of my countrymen and foreigners consulting together upon the private business of mankind", and making this metropolis a kind of emporium for the whole earth. I must confess I look upon High Change to be a grand council, in which all considerable nations have their repre- sentatives. Factors, in the trading world, are what ambassadors are in the politic world. They negotiate affairs, conclude treaties, and maintain a good correspondence between those wealthy societies of men that are divided from one another by seas and oceans, or live on the different extremities of a continent. I have often been pleased to hear disputes adjusted between an inhabitant of Japan and au alderman of London ; or to see a subject of the Great Mogul entering into a league with one of the ...

SHEEP SHEARING IN NEW SOUTH WALES. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 27 September 1873

SHEEP SHEARING IN NEW SOUTH WALES. i As the first of the shearing months is now at hand, we* give, in thiB issue, an illustra- tion of that busy scene-7-an Australian wool- shed at shearing time. Tb those who have spent any time up-country, the following remarks, extracted from Haygarth's Bush Life in Australia, will prove quite familiar. To those, who have not read the work we mention, our quotation will give a graphic idea of the scene : " The most interesting time to the sheep owner is the close of the year, though he may then expect to have his hands full of work, of which in a bush life there is no equable distribution ; at one time there is a dearth of it, at another a superabundance. It is, how- ever, merry Christmas in the bush of Aus- tralia, as in England, though in a different way. There is no wassailing, or gathering round the fire, with the thermometer at 90 and 100 ; but the approach of Christmas briDgs with it the harvest, and, most impor- tant of all, " the clip ;" t...

LOSS OF THE "OSCAR." [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 27 September 1873

LOSS OP THE "OSCAR." SEVERAL geutlemen-members of the mer- cantile community-met together at the Sydney Exchange on Thursday last, for the purpose of devising means to assist Captain Kiolseth, of the Danish barque Oscar, recently lost on our coast. The circumstances are most sa'd, as the vessel has been wrecked under circumstances over which the captain had no control. It ! may be said that with her he has lost every- thing ; the exposure consequent upon the accident bas severely injured his health, and with a wife and two helpless little ones he is now a stranger in a strange land. Those willing-and who would not be so ?-to help iu such an extremity, can send the subscrip- tions to John Algar, Esq., to the Manager of the Exchange, or -to any Member of the Committee.

STALKING PELICANS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 27 September 1873

STALKING PELICANS. THE illustration we give of this aboriginal mode of hunting the Pelican, is one that can only be indulged in to perfection on the banks of the Murray, in its lagoons and backwaters. At early dawn, on the un- ruffled bosom of a grand sweep of water, fringed with reeds, and ita shores over- shadowed with the finest specimens of Australian Piora, vast numbers of Australian water fowl may be seen, literally swarming in every direction the eye wanders, busily engaged in fishing for an early breakfast. There, amidst a cloud of dark coloured and ever moving objects, the stately pelican, white as snow, may be seen sailing to and fro, in zigzag lines with astonishing celerity, and anon dipping his enormous bill for fish or other dainties, with pouch well filled and pendant like a huge bag. The pelicans are very fond of sitting in long rows, on some sandy strip, to enjoy their leisure with dignity ; at such moments the wily native prepares himselt to stalk his wary prey, no...

THE SYDNEY EXCHANGE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 27 September 1873

THE SYDNEY EXCHANGE. WHEREVER commercial men congregate ia trading communities, the expression, " On 'Change," is familiar to all. Although to the uninitiated it has a sound only applicable to merchants and their pursuits, in reality it exercises a talismanic influenceover the affairs of individuals, communities, and nations indeed its effects may be considered .world- wide. There is no institution in commercial cities which so accurately dennes their mer- cantile status as does the Exchange. Here may be counted, as it were, the heart-beats of trade, and by its pulsations, quickened or depressed, the actions of the mercantile cen- tres are guided. Essentially is this the case where free-trade is the policy of the country, as in New South Wales. Experience has proved that the various interests which tend to the prosperity of a nation never succeed without a free interchange of commodities, and this principle of free-trade can never be so successfully upheld as when it is encoura- ged...

MR. ERNEST GILES, THE EXPLORER. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 27 September 1873

MR. ERNEST GILES, THE EXPLORER, ME. GILES occupies a place in the history of Australia with those intrepid explorers, Eyre, Sturt, Burke, Wills, Landsborough/ and M'Kinley, who have done so much towards the settlement of this new continent. Mr. Giles was educated at Christ's Hospital, London, and after finishing his studies, he joined his parents in South Australia. Soon after his arrival he went with a party overland to the diggings in Victoria, and after some months' experience as a digger, entered the General Post Office as a clerk, where he remained until Sir Charles Hotham caused a reduction of officials to be made in several of the Government offices. Mr. Giles, (then a junior clerk), with others, was dis- missed ; but he soon after obtained a situa- tion in the County Court, Maryborough. This position he, however,' resigned, and on his return to Melbourne, met with a gentleman who was going to explore some parts of Queensland. Mr. Giles joined him, and formed a passion for bu...

THE NEW CIVIL LAW COURTS, MELBOURNE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 27 September 1873

THE NEW CIVIL LAW COURTS, MEL- BOURNE. THE designa and plans for the new Civil Law Courts, prepared by Mr. A. L. Smith, of Melbourne, have been awarded the first prize, and there can be but little doubt that these courts, when finished, will compare most favourably in point of accommodation and architectural beauty with any of the Mel- bourne public buildings. .The site fixed upon for the palatial edifices is the block of land having a frontage to William, Lonsdale, and Little Bourke streets, and on which at present stands the Registrar-General's department. The block of ground to be built on is a square to each street of 313 feet, and the require- ments, pointing to an important central ob- ject in the library, have suggested to the author the idea of a dome as a central feature. It enters more conspicuously into the com struction of the principal front in William street, and in which the necessities of the arrangement admit of a less altitude, permit- ting it to become, on this si...

THE OPENING OF THE ADELAIDE AND GLENELG RAILWAY. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 27 September 1873

THE OPENING OP THE ADELAIDE AND GLENELG RAILWAY. THIS important work, which connects Ade- | laide with the principal watering place in the colony, and supplies a desideratum which has long been felt, was successfully inaugu- rated on Saturday, 2nd August, when the line was formally declared open by his Excellency the Governor. The line, which is at present laid from the south end of Victoria-square, Adelaide, to the jetty at Glenelg, is six miles and fifty chains in length, or, with sidings, seven miles. It traverses country almost level, and which presents no engineering difficulties. The total ascent from Glenelg to Adelaide, a distance of nearly seven miles, is 138 feet, and the steepest gradient on the line is 1 in 169. There are four bridges, spanned by iron gir- ders, and 15 culverts, spanned by red gum beams, on the line. There are six open public road crossings and twelve private crossings. The sleepers are of sawn red gum, 8 feet long, 9 inches wide, 4 inches thick, and and...

THE GOVERNOR'S NEW DRAG— THE SYDNEY FOUR-IN-HAND CLUB. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 27 September 1873

THE GOVERNOR'S NEW DRAG THE SYDNEY FOUR-IN-HAND CLUB. A NOTICEABLE fact, in connexion with our life in New South Wales, is the introduction of some of the sports and pastimes of our English forefathers. In our last number we illustrated the amusement of Hunting-in the'present issue we give an~ engraving of one of the pleasure-trips of the Sydney Four in-hand Club, recently inaugurated. This society already contains a large number of members, including His Excellency Sir Her- cules Robinson, as President. The Governor handles the reins in his own splendid new drag, the '. Hercules," recently built to order, by Messrs. Fitzgerald and Collins, at their carriage factory, Castlereagh-street, and the fact of His Excellency giving this commission to a Sydney firm, shews that associations of this nature are likely to give an impetus to colonial industry in more branches than one. The remaining vehicles attached to the Club are " breaks," and are generally driven by the following members : E...

The Month. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 27 September 1873

Cfte Monti). THE leading event of the month has been, undoubtedly j the meeting of Parliament. All the old programme was gone through-the firing of cannon, the beating of drums, the inside galaxy of aristocratic stars, and the outside congregation of democracy. In fact, all the means by which those people who delight in having M.L. A. and M.L.C. tacked on to the end of their names, inform the outside world that " it is their opening day." And a pretty list of jobs the Government intend working out before the session closes. Why, if they manage to transact half the proposed business, they will have been kept pretty close at it, and will have earned a remarkable reputation for industry. Among the Acts which will come before the Assembly may b e cited, the reconstruction of the Upper House and, possibly, the having this measure in view is the reason,why the several vacancies caused lately in the Council Chamber will not be filled by any fresh appoint- ment, lt is proposed to amend the ...

DISASTER TO THE DALLAM TOWER. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 27 September 1873

DISASTER TO THE DALLAM TOWER. ns our jase issue want ot time prevented us giving justice to any engraving of the above extraordinary circumstance. We now pre seut a first-class engraving of the ill-fated vessel as she appeared when dismasted. As full details of the disaster have appeared in most of our daily and weekly journals, there I is no occasion for us to enter into particulars ; I suffice it, that the Dallam Tower was bound j from London to Otago, N. Z., and after a I tolerably favourable passage to the Cape, met with the disaster depicted in the engra- ving, near the Island of St. Paul. The con- duct of the officers and crew, under the most exceptional circumstances, was deserving of all praise, and the crippled condition of the I ship, as she entered Port Phillip Heads under jury-masts, caused wonderment that she ever floated to the completion of her voyage.

OUR SUPPLEMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 27 September 1873

OUR SUPPLEMENTS. To meet the wishes of those who prefer smaller subjects for framing, we issue with the present number two illustrations. The first of these is " A CLEAR CASE ! " from an English painting, drawn on stone by Mr. Montagu Scott. The picture is one of that suggestive class of animal portraiture which speaks for itself. In one of those pleasant embowered dells, with which many parts of England still abound, we find sly Reynard with a captured pheasant. But in the midst of his act of theft and murder, a watch-dog looks over the hedge and surprises him with his ill gotten plunder. The evidence is so conclu- I sive, that in legal parlance, Reynard "has no case," and we doubt if even a picked jury of his own brethren would have the effron- tery to commit him. . The expression of sly confusion and detected guilt in the counte- nance of the:, fox, and of resolution and shocked honesty-i»'that of his canine de- nouncer, have been very effectively caught and rendered by the artis...

THE UNDERGROUND PERMANENT WEALTH OP NEW SOUTH WALES. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 27 September 1873

THE UNDERGROUND PERMANENT I WEALTH OP NEW SOUTH WALES. I THAT the fortunate possession of coal and iron has been the foundation on which the enormous prosperity and grand commercial Sosition of Old England has been so firmly ased, and yet maintains, as the first and highest among the nations, few will deny. Coal and iron command the motive and manufacturing power of the day, and the possession of them renders a country at once wealthy and independent. The obtaining of all other known minerals, the then making them practically useful to civilized man, with their relative value, depends upon the economical command of the two first. Coal and iron have become a necessity of the age, are in constant demand, and, both for national and domestic works are / in universal use. We can get gold with the pick and shovel, and work it with iron tools into ornaments ; but gold cannot make the necessary pick and shovel to dig out the hard iron ores, or make them into useful plates and tools. Long pe...
