THE ARISTOCRACY AND SOLDIERS OF JAPAN. [Newspaper Article] — The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser — 5 April 1864
TIIE AIIISTOGRACY AND SOLDIERS OF JAPAN. (From the Quarterly Review.) [During a very few of the years which have recently passed over us, the name of .Tapan has excited an amount of attention and interest which did not ceist during many ages preccding the recent opening of the ports of Japan to European trade. Especially since the commercial inter coulrse which was collmmncced between England and Japan unfortunately led to serious misunderstanding and quarrel, in which a town belonging to a Japanese prince was destroyed, has the curiosity of British subjects been awnakeoned in regard to tlhe social and political condition and the military strength of our new adver saries. Japan boasts a material civilisa tion as old, probably, as that of any existing nation; but until a recent pe riod general intercourse with foreign na tions has beoon zealously forbidden by its governing classes. Certain very ; re stricted privileges, we believe, have hbcan passed in Japan for some few gener;4ions ...

THE GULF STREAM. [Newspaper Article] — The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser — 5 April 1864
' THE GULF STREAM. [The discovery of -the existence of the Mexican Gulf Stream, and the important part which it performs in tle economy of the globe is one of the most remarkable revelations of modern science in so far as it relates to the physical geography of the sea. That "river in the soa" (as Captain Maury styles the Gulf Stream) which flows with a continual current of warm water from the tropics towards the western shores of Europe and Africa, is held to be the prime cause of the mild and moist southwest winds which prevail in the British Isles; and of the geniality of the climate as compared with the oppo site shore of North America.-Eb. IND. The warm water rushes out of the great Mexican cauldron through the Strait of Florida (having a temperature -82 degrees-equalling that of the hot springs of Matlock, and whose width is 100 miles) with a velocity of from three to live miles an hour Thence it passes through the Straits of the Bahamas, and right on to tile banks of Newfound...
