The New Russian Capital. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 7 April 1894

The New Russian Capital. The_ departure of the Czar for semiperma nent residence nt KiefE has given rise to specu lations as to the selection ot' Kieff as the future capital of Russia. The Spectator writes : — ' In one respect the removal of the cupitnl, if it is ever removed, must intensify rather than alter the steady policy ot the Cznrs. It brings them nearer by hx hundred miles to Constantinople, which their people call Cz«rgrad, as the destined capital of their emperora. From tbe resolution to acquire this city, and reign over Eastern Europe from Archangel down to the Mediterrane n, tbe Russian people and their lords have never swerved, or will swerve -«hile Russia remains a nationality. The Northerner is altvays drawn houthward by the hope of brighter skies j and a kindlier soil; and in the Russian case he has another inducement, which, with em pires, has always been irresistible. He must get to the open water, and. share in the general commerce and general struggle of mankind...

Export of Frozen Meat. A meeting of persons interested in the for mation of a GrazierB Meat Export Company' held in Sydney last Priday, adopted a report by Mr. C. Fetherstonhaugh prepared for the exeoutive committee. The meeting was a farther step in the movement initiated some weeks a ; o, which we are pleased to learn is making satisfactory progress. Mr. Father stobhaugh's .report is a useful contribution by way of information abont the surplus stock (available for export and about the pro cess to be adopted in conducting the business of tbe company. Mr. Fetherstonhaugh 'tells us that tbe flocks of New South Wales had decreased in two years by 5,100,000.

The Referendum a Mistake. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 7 April 1894

The Referendum a Mistake. (from Macmillan's Magazine.) The referendum rightly looked at is really a Btep of retrogression ; it offends the representative system and grievously diminishes the dignity ef Parliaments. Its root principle iB, in a word, the principle of numbers ; it ia the apotheosis _ of majorities, an appeal from quality to quantity. Parliamentary representatives either aire or should be men of greater knowledge and ability than the mass of those they represent, and the people which elects a number of worthless representatives will probably be wanting in political sagacity. Mazzini, whose faith in the people was almost a religion, spoke of ' tho great and beautiful ensign of democracy, the progress of all through all and under the leading of tho best and wisest.' Very good j but where tho referendum is applied what beeomes of ' the lead ing of the best and wisest ?' Even as it is, such a leading is not always to be had, as anyone who knows anything of American politics...

THE VALUE OF LEAVES. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 7 April 1894

THE VALUE OF LEAVES. Lsmvts are of value as a mulching material, no stock bedding arid as a stable absorbent. As a mulch, leaves possess the highest value. In the garden a light covering of leaves over tho pansy or strawberry bed will do much to bring the plants through in an improved condition Ia fact, all forms of vegetation come out in tho spring greatly benefitted if a light mulching material is spread about them in tbe fall. Leaves placed about plants in the fall, shield them from the sun's burning rays during winter. While serving the purpose of shade to the plants tbey become more or less packed about them because of rains and wind. In this con dition decay sets in and when warm spring arrives a good top dressing is on the soil's surface. If allowed to remain among etrow berry plants the leaves aid grently in keeping the fruit clean and of bright appearance. As beddicg material the vrIub of leaves is well known, and as a stable absorbent their wortb should not be overlooked. ...

Gold in the Tamworth District. Prospecting for gold out Moor Creek way has been in active progress lately, and we ( Tamworth News) hear of several parties who are trying their luck in that quarter.

A HORSE'S MEMORY. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 7 April 1894

a house's mesioet. Everyone who bas hud much to do with horses knows quite well that memory is a horse's strong point. Mr. Cooke, who for merly hod a large circus in England, once poeseBsed a small performing pony, which he eventually sold. About eight years after the sale he was asked by a man if he woold buy a very small pony. Mr. Cooke replied that he would if hs liked him. The pony waB brought and instantly recognised. ' How old is he ?' asked the circus proprietor. ' Eight years,' was the anBwer. ' And a bit more,' added Mr. Cooke, ' to prove what I am say ing, look here !' . Mr. Cooke then spoke to the pony and tbe little fellow went on with bis performance juBt as though there had been no break in his circus life. The author of the ' Menageries' knew a horse which, being accustomed to make a journey once a week with a newsman, stopped of his own accord at the houses of the sixty or seventy cus tomers served by his' master. This one can readily understand, but the relator of t...

She had slept, and in hor sleep had dreamed that hep father still lived, and that she saw him stand ing at the door of a hut among the far-off Indian 3nflB, and that she heard his voice calling : ?' Oc tavia ! Neva !' And thus dreaming, she had awa-ened with a cry of terror, to ask of herself if it was only a dream. It was not strange that she had thus dreamed, Bince all the day and all the evening her mind had been fixed upon her father. It would have been strange if she hud not dreamed of him. Hor dream bad had the clearness of a vision ; but Neva was Sot romantic and although she slept no more that night, but walked her floor with noiseless Bteps and ?widely questioning eyes, yet she convinced herself long before the morning that she had been tho victim of her excited imagination, and that her dream was ' only a dream.'

EDWD. HIGGENS, MARSHALL AND CO.'S P.EPOET. Fat Cattle.— Supplies for the week have proved sufficient to meet the requirements of the trade. Owing to the very heavy yardings at Flemington on Monday speculators did not operate, conse quently competition was restricted solely to trade requirements. On Monday full supplies were yarded to a limited attendance of buyers. The maximum of consignments forward consisted of light cattle in prime and fresh condition. The demand was dull and values extremely low ; in many cases agents were compelled to hold several lots over. At yesterday's sales the trade was well represented, and country buyers were in full attendance -, competition was brisk and prices realised were fully ten shillings per head in advance of Monday's rates.
