[FROM A CORRESPONDENT.] [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 5 March 1870

rKROJr A COItRIiSrONDKNT.1 " Nothing extenuate nor set down aught in malice," is a motto that I have chosen as tho commencement of this, my first attempt ut correspondence with your much esteeined journal, chiefly for tho reason that I may havo such au excellent admonition over in my mind, thus guiding mo to speak of events in a faithful and authentic manner. I know of no warning so appropriate in endeavouring to givo you .a few facts relative to our late races. No persons, except those moro intimately connected with tho affairs of the Bathurst Jockey Club, can bo aware of tho almost insurmountable difficulties they, tho club, have to contend with. I speak more especially of tho large debt still duo upon tho course, and losses, arising from the failure of races hitherto. Truly, such a state of things would bo almost enough to deaden tho energies of the most sanguine. Yet, in spito of all these draw backs, tho Bathurst Club havo been, and I believe will bo, persistent in thoir endeav...

Improved Device for Loosening and Pulverizing Soil. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 5 March 1870

j Improved Device for Loosening and I - Pulverizing Soil. IT is well known to fanners-those at least who endea vour to understand tho scienco of their business-thal although tho soil holds a certain proportion of thc nutritious elements which form the constituents ol plants, their roots, as well as their leaves and blossoms, dopend greatly upon tho elements of tho atmosphere for growth and development. Consequently tho ex posure of the soil to tho atmosphere is a nocessity in agriculture. But often its exposuro is simply a reversal of tho position of tho soil, what was at tho surface being placee! at thc bottom of a furrow, from four to ton inches deep, that bottom being compressed hard by tho woight and friction of tho plough. Pulverizing, not breaking into tho masses, is what tho soil needs to enable it to reçoive from tho atmosphoi'o, and return to tho agriculturist the greatest amount of good. Thc object of tho pulverizing machino, an Amoricnn invention, is to save labour and ti...
