ART AND INDUSTRIAL INTERNATIONAL EXHIBITION OF 1871. [Newspaper Article] — Evening News — 6 January 1870

AETAND INDUSTRIAL INTERNATIONAL EXHIBITION OF 1871. The great exhibition held in Uie Crystal Palace, Hyde Park, originated by the ever lamented Prince Consort, in 1850-51, marked an epoch in the Arts and sciences. The benefits resulting from that enormous reunion of citizens of the world at largo cannot be conceived or their value estimated. As the first great Wow at the destroyer of civilisa tion, war, as the cementer of friendship amongst all peoples, as the promoter of science, and as the most healthy stimulant of art, it has never had an equal. Its excellent example was immediately imitated toy the great countries of Europe. America followed in its footsteps, and even feeble successors in Australia have shown how groat and glorious an effort it was. Her Majesty's Commissioners, in imitation of their royal prototype, have inaugurated a series of Inter national Exhibitions of selected specimens of art, and industry, the first to take place in London in 1871, and the colonies have ...

ADELAIDE. Wednesday. [Newspaper Article] — Evening News — 6 January 1870

ADELAIDE. Wednesday. The Government have dismissed two more stipen diary magistrates. The report of the Select Committee on mail con tracts is decidedly condemnatory of the conduct of the Chief Secretary. A meeting at the Town Hall, last night, called to consider the question of the Mayor's salary, was an uttcic failure, owing to the absence of the citizens signing the requisition. The Register has accepted the challenge of tho Advertiser, to prove which has the largest circulation, the loser to pay fifty pounds to charities. There is more activity in flour ; sales of country havo been made at £10 15s, and town £11 10s. No wheat offering, fanners still holding back. — Herald.

EXTRAORDINARY BILLIARD BREAKS Bobebts, Jun., Defeated. Tlie week ending 30th October witnessed some of the greatest triumphs ever achieved at billiards. Air. Slardon, writing in 1848, mentions an extraordinary display by Kentfield, the celebrated ' Jonathan' of Brighton, who some years before scored 57 consecutive spot-hasai'ds, aud made altogether a break of 196.

Fourteen years later John Roberts, who succeeded to the championship, in a match at Saville House, put together 34G, includinc 104 snot-hazards, and up to 25th October this remained the best run, although 3. Roberts, junior, TV. Cook, junior, Charles Hughes, . J. Bennett, and J. Herat all managed to approach it pretty closely. The two first named have been looked on as the 'coming men;' the have played two matches for money and won one each.

WATER SUPPLY FOR PASTORAL PURPOSES. [Newspaper Article] — Evening News — 6 January 1870

WATER SUPPI.T FOR PASTORAL PU EPOSES. Mb. Moivr'b act in placing ten guineas in the hands of the Society, for the purpose uf drawing out a good treatise on the 'Storage of Vat or for Pastoral Purposes,' is likely to be followed by a better result than he anticipated. The Council, perceiving the importance of the proposal, withheld the announce ment of the prize until such a sum should bo obtained as would be likely lo command the attention of com petent men, and induce (hose to compete who are capable of making an acceptable addition jo our knowledge. The wisdom of tho delay is proved by the result, a much wider scope having been given to the inquiry than was at first proposed. Instead often guineas, the sum of one hundred and twenty-five guineas has been subscribed, the names of the cen tributors being inserted in the report of the Society's proceedings durintr tho month. The scope of the in quiry to be instituted appears from the following draft drawn for the guidance of competito...

SHIPPING DAMP WOOL. THE BURNING OF WOOL SHIPS. [Newspaper Article] — Evening News — 7 January 1870

SHIPPING DAMP WOOL. THE BDBKIKG OP WOOL SHIPS. lue Darling Downs Gasctte of December 29th has an article throwing some light on the singular fact that several Queensland wool ships have been burnt at sea: — The present season is one of the finest ever known on the Downs; but advaatageous as have been the frequent showers to the agricultural interests, to the pastoral, with all the benefits conferred, the weather has been attended with serious consequences. During the early period of spring, a scorching sun and dry winds seriously affected the lambing operations ; grass was scarce, and the new systemof 'lambing-down' in paddocks, did not turn out near so satisfactory as was expected. It is well-known that young ewes will throw up their lambs on the slightest disturbance, and being left un protected by the presence and care of the shepherd, many of the young lambs were destroyed by the crows | and eagle-hawks. We have been informed that the averages of lambs amongst the paddocked ewes...

A LIVING ENOCH ARDEN. [Newspaper Article] — Evening News — 7 January 1870

A LIVING ENOCH AROEN. A resident of St. Louis writes to The Democrat of that city a singular story of the battle of Chicka mauga. It was suggested by witnessing tlie l-lay of Enoch Arden. He says : A sergeant in my regiinentwas v,oundciai:Chicka mauga, and was reported dead. He was scon to fall in the heat of the engagement, and our lines being day. When the poor fellow was found he was so mutilated by being trampled on by tho cavalry that his face could not be recognized. A comrade, however, found in his breast pocket a miniature of liis wife and sent it to her with an account of his death. It turned out that the body was not that of Tom C ? , but a sergeant of another company. Tom, desperately wounded, fell into the hands of the enemy and was sent, to Andersonville, where the Rebei surgeon cut of one of his onus and one of his legs, and, in Spite of his bad fare, he recovered in due time. I never knew why they kept Tom so long in prison, except it was for the pur pose of exchangin...

PRODUCE MARKETS. Sydney, 7th January, 1870. [Newspaper Article] — Evening News — 7 January 1870

PRODUCE MARKETS. Svdnev. 7th Januarv. 1870. The produce trade has not yet recovered from the stagnation caused by the holidays. Next week we expect a recurrence of the briskness usual to this trade. MAIZE.— The stocks are very low; with the exception of two of the town dealers, there is not more than ten days' supply in the market. The stocks at present held in Victoria are also getting low. Our exports to there for Last month have been only 2815 bags; %vliilc for December, 18G8, we sent 26,255 bags. Now tliat those who have held so much hare nearly sold out to the regular trade, we may soon expect a reaction in prices. We 'had to pay Victoria £27,187 for the privilege of allowing them to take our maize ; not a bad return for the £60,000 we receive from them, on account of the Border duties. But our rulers at the time of settling the Border duties were so farsceing that they over looked the interests of the largest producing portions of the community, the maize and bacon growers. St...
