The attend ance woe not bo numerous as might have been expected, considering the Importance of the subject, but all those present seemed to have come to a foregone conclusion that the question bad been actually eettled by public feeling in this colony and at home. The Mayor (Mr. Bunoy) took the chair, and after a brief address, introduced the Rev. J). Seddon. The rev. gentleman moved the adoption of a petition eg&inst transportation to the continent of Australia, and said that lie lisd strong hopes that the representations already made from the colonies of Australia had had a duo effect upon the Imperial Qo vcrnment, nud that the evil of transpoita'don ...

TRANSPORTATION. PRAHBAN. A meeting of tlie residents ofPrahrsn, to protest against the continuancc-of trans portation to the Australian colonies, was held In the Town-hall, on Monday. The mayor, Mr. i. B.

TO THE JEWELLERS AND WATCHMAKERS OF VICTORIA. (PER FAVOUR OF THE AUSTRALASIAN.) [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian — 19 November 1864

TO THE JEWELLERS ANTD WATCHMAKERS OE VIC TORIA. (PER FAVOUR OF TOE AUSTRALASIAS.) Gentlemen,—There is a matter which Be vitally affects the successful prosecution of basinets in our line in this colour, that I bare been led to wonder that some simul taneous action has not been taken with a view to its amendment: I allude to the ex ceedingly high and oppressive rates oi post age to which we are subjected under existing postal mismanagement. I need not remind you that we are in i he habit of constantly sending and receiving articles of jewellery and small quantities of gold through the post; but whether the gold so transmitted is manufactured or unmanufactured we are compelled to pay three times the amount that a pacitge of equal weight, but oontaiuing other articles, would be charged. The effect Ibis iniquitous demand will bare ou the couutry trade of Melbourne importers or roanulbctnrers is so self-evident, that it has but to be mentioned to insure its condemna tion ; and I am indee...

THE DECAY OF NATIVE TIMBER TO THE EDITOR OF THE AUSTRALASIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian — 19 November 1864

THE DECAY OF NATIVE TIMBER TO T1IB EDITOH OF THE AtSTEAlABIAX. Sir,—I beg leave to express my general con currence in the views uud opinions of Mr. L. Morton on the subject of (he decay of the eucalyptus species, as expressed in a late num ber of your excellent journal. As it is a sub* jcctthallms occupied my attention for some years, I mention my conviction that the insects which devour the leaves, and thus cause the death of the trees, are generally hatched between two leaves, which are cemented together, and that these insects have the power of spinning threads, by means of which they can drop themselves to the ground, or drift to other trees or branches. In some cases those threads are threefold ; in these cases the insect twirls itself about and twists them into one. Tlieeo insects sometimes dcrour the outer coreiing of the leaf, leaving only a skeleton of fibres; in oilier ca.«cs the whole leaf is eaten away. 1 Cud the different species of eucalyptus to suffer from a different...

TILLAGE-OLD IMPLEMENTS AND NEW. No. II. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian — 19 November 1864

TILLAGE-OLD IMPLEMENTS AND NEW. No. II. Before proceeding to the second branch of our Buuject, on the tendency the too frequent use of tlie plough has to perpet uate the growth of weeds rather than to destroy them, we must loot to what is being done in the way of tilling land by means of steam power. And wc may commence b|' pointing out that, in the opinion of all competent judges in the old country, the late public trials for the lioyal Society's prizes at Newcastle prove the progress made during the last three or four years to hare been very trilling. Fowler is again the winner of both prizes for the best application of steam power to the cultivation of the soil, as well as of the first for the best application of | the same power as adapted to small holdings, besides others for detached parts of the apparatus; but these have been awarded him more ou account of j improvements in the engines, and for the strengthening and simplification of parts of the tackle, than for any modifi c...

THE YEOMAN'S PAGE. STATE OF ENGLISH AGRICULTURE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian — 19 November 1864

THE YEOMAN'S PAGE. STATE OF ENGLISH AGRICUL TURE. Tbe year 1864 will be long remarkable in (he English calendar for a drought almost approaching to the rainless seasons of Australia. There has been no parallel to it during the last half century. For weeks together not a drop of rain ha9 fallen. The grass lias been completely scorched up, and the general surface of the meadows is nearly as brown as tho turnpike road. N or is the exceeding dry. ness confined to the British Islands, it extends to several parts of Europe, to Egypt, and to America. Iu some parts of Spain the drought is so severe that the canals are nearly empty, and the manu facture of flour is completely stopped. In Egypt, the wheat crop, in consequence of the excessively dry w eather, is a failure, and exports are prohibited to the 9tli Oc tober, while imports nre admitted free. In New York, also, breadstuff's have materially r>6cn in price, in consequence of tbe accounts from the interior being extremely unfavourab...

BEES, BEEHIVES, AND BEE MASTERS. The following letter appeared in The Times:— Sir,—That the queen is not a mere egg* laying machine, obedient to mere-mechanical impulses, nor her subjects mere mechanical creations obeying similar impulses, with no instructive appreciation, will be evident from the following facts:—Reaumur, the eminent naturalist, observes that after the queen rsgnant has become a mother— " The bees are constantly on the watch to make themselves useful to her and to render her every kind office. The? are for ever offering her boney. They lick her with their probosces, and wherever she goes they form a court to attend her. Even the body of a dead queen is the object of tender affection to the bees. I took a queen out of the water seem ingly dead. She was also mutilated, lmring lost a leg. Bringing her home, 1 placed her amid a number of working bees recovered from drowning also by means of warmth. No sooner did the retired workers perceive the queen in ber miserable p...

In about two months time it will l e seen what the united care, attention, and labour of the commissioners and various local committees have brought forth, and it Is seriously to be hoped that the grand result will be worthy of the objects of the under faking.
