The Channel Funnel. [Newspaper Article] — The Bathurst Post — 15 July 1882

[?] A most i%re8tbg disc^eion on the above subject , was heldljlji ^6 twff ySit the fcack of the WpUam^tril ^^le^Hall, by the members of the WiUiam-ifeet Mutual Improvement Society, on Friday evening, the 7th instant. The Responsible Ministry of the day declared that it was not desir able to proceed with the tunnel, while many members were of opinion that the benefits to be derived irom a tunnel connecting England with the continent, *rere so gtfeat that any risk England might run should be chanced. At the time the Ministry selected the Question, and ' for some days after it had been announced that they intended declaiming against the proposed tunnel, there were evident signs that Sir E. Watkin would have his pet scheme carried out, and workings were, we believe, actually begun for this purpose. On July ' 3rd, however, there came a message informing the Ministry that the Government of England had applied for an injunction to stay further proceedings. There is a saying, ' that great ...

THE WAR AGAINST EGYPT LATEST FROM ALEXANDRIA. LONDON, July 12, 3.2 p.m. [Newspaper Article] — The Bathurst Post — 15 July 1882

TIE WAR AGAINST EfiE LATEST FROM ALEXANDRIA. (From Thursday's Evening Nem.) London, July 12, 3*2 t-.m. WWW * The bombardment of Alexandria by the eight British ironclads, under Admiral Beauchamp Seymour, began at 7 o'clock on Thursday (yesterday )morning, and ended at 2 o'clock in the afternoon, having lasted eight hours. The Egyptians fought obstinately ,and their firing was well sustained, but their aim was faulty. The British ships Alexandria, Sultan, and Superb sustained the brunt of the action, and were repeatedly struck by the shots and shells of the enemy, but the superiority of the British guns, the weight of their metal, and the precision of their gun ners, told with dreadful effect on the enemy's forts. The great ironclad Inflexible sustained in this bombardment her maiden action, and the result demonstrated the terrible energy of the 80-ton guns with which she is armed, and also the great power of this ship. The contest, though a most unequal one, is regarded as being of ...

Ant Life. [CONTINUED.] [Newspaper Article] — The Bathurst Post — 15 July 1882

m jft By the Rev. J. G. Wood, M.A. (England). [OONTINDBD.] ??woto tueant.'— SoiiOMOK, m One species, Formica exsecta, is, according to Sir I J. Lubbock, a very remarkable insect, attacking its I larger foes much as the billmen of olden days attacked I knights in full armour. fl ' It is a delicate, not to say active species. They I advance in serried masses, but at close quarters they I bite right and lert, dancing about to prevent being bitten themselves. When fighting with larger species, they spring on to their backs and seize them by the neck or by one antennee. ' They also have the instinct of combining in small parties, three or four seizing ono enemy at once, and then pulling different ways, so that she, on her part, cannot get at any one of her foes. One of them then jumps on her back, and cuts, or rather saws off her head. In battles between this ant and a much larger Formica pratensis, many of the latter may be seen, * each with a little F. exsecta on her back, sawing off h...

THE KITCHEN GARDEN. [Newspaper Article] — The Bathurst Post — 15 July 1882

THE KITCHEN GARDEN. For some years past the inhabitants' of Bathurst have looked almost entirely to ' John Chinaman for their supply of vegetables. During the last sum mer' we do not know what hundreds would have done had'not 'John' came round with his baskets laden with carrots, parsnips, turnips, parsley, celery, beans, and very seldom indeed, that great luxury* peas. H' It is to be regretted that even iarmers, wuo uugin, ifc to grow all these things and be selling them at a ?fcgood proat, have, in many instances, been compelled W '* *- buy fr'om 'John.' When the good lady of the * .house would ask John for potatoes, she invariably received the reply, 'Me^no savvy.' If, however, she told John that he was a humbug, and that she Iraew the reason why he did not bring potatoes ; John would rub his shoulders most vigorously and say, **!*oo heby, me no liky.' : ?- The cause of people having to depend on the ilhmamen entirely, during the past twelve months, most certainly was the exceedi...

FLOWER GARDEN AND SHRUBBERY. [Newspaper Article] — The Bathurst Post — 15 July 1882

FLOWER GARDEN AND SHRUBBERY. The planting out of ornamental trees and shrubs must be pushed forward this month.' Evergreens may be left until August. Finish your pruning. Cut back old shrubberies well and use a little manure : then they will spring out doubly fresh and vigorous. Roses.— Cuttings may be planted out in great numbers ; use plenty of manure. The surface of beds in which anemones, renun culuses, and hyacinths are planted should be stirred occasionally; but the soil should be made firm around the plants, which will soon be showing blossoms. ?

THE KITCHEN GARDEN. [Newspaper Article] — The Bathurst Post — 15 August 1882

THE KITCHEN OARDEN. Abe not the vegetables beginning to show them selves in our small back gardens ? Already we see #reat improvements in them. Beans are up, peas are rnnning away from all the rest, but somehow the lettuces hang fire. There must be a cause ; what is it ? The soil they are in is, unfortunately, mixed rather auch with clay. Lettuce must have plentyof manure ; ice light soil suits them, then they grow well. To keep up a successive supply, sow away plenty of peas — Yorkshire hero, cricketer, queen of dwarfs, Blue Prussian, &c. Broad beans, all kinds ; also, French beans, cabbage (early), cauliflower, and irocoli ; parsnips, turnips (early sorts), parsley, leeks, mustard, and cress. , Fine rains have fallen ; hence prospects of a good spring are grand, and we may fairly anticipate a £pod ' haul ' for those who will but take a little trouble with their gardens. E. Webb & Co. have arranged with Messrs. Anderson and Co., of Sydney, to keep many of their best...

SOMETHING WE CAN'T DO WITHOUT. WHAT IT IS, AND HOW IT SHOULD BE TAKEN. [Newspaper Article] — The Bathurst Post — 15 August 1882

SOMETHING WE CAN'lltD© WITHOUT. WHAT IT IS, AND HOW IT^mOVW BE TAKEN, Food is to man what t^ie sun and rain are to the earth. Without food, # men know that it is impossibjfi to exist^ an|| yet, although we handle it, and take ft three times daily (for the most part), there are rew l^eed who consider the kinds, the quantity, alette i times food should be taken. Man is designed to live on a mixed diet. Some animals are formed to live upon vegetable substances alone ; these are found to have teeth with broad and flat surfaces, and have peculiar movements of the jaws in which they are set. Take the ox, the horse, or the steep as examples. Carnivorous, or . flesh eating- animals, on the other hand, are found to possess long and projecting teeth, set in jaws that will open almost as wide as a door set on well greased hinges ; hence they can seize am} tear to pieces easily. Observe the cat, the dog, the tiger. In man, if we observe his teeth, we find them to be a mixture of the two kinds. ...

THE PRESENT FREE SELECTORS' ACT AND HOW IT AFFECTS THE FARMER. [Newspaper Article] — The Bathurst Post — 15 August 1882

THE PRESENT FREE SELECTORS' ACT AND HOW IT AFFECTS THE FARMER. Just now that the many abuses to which our great Selectors' Act can be put, in fact has been and still continues to be put, are coming out and being freely discussed almost all over the country, we consider an opportune time for looking further into the Act, and seeing, if possible, whether it is or has been the real poor man's friend. We leave out dummy isms, and what are known as '19th section selections ' or ' mineral conditional purchases,' such as some of the 150 taken up at Dubbo and Coonamble during the last 12 months, as all theso, no doubt, will receive the exposure and punishment they deserve. A poor man takes up 100 acres of land under the Free Selectors' Act. He pays his five shillings per acre and, and then goes on with his improvements for three years. If he has been fortunate in secur ing fairly open country, he is able to clear, fence, and plough from 25 to 30 acres in time to get a crop sown during the s...

The young man replied that he thought she. should be, and the next day he sent her a new cap for her finger, with the following lines :— ' I send you a thimble for fingers nimble, Which 1 hope will fit when you try it ; It will last you long if it's half as strong As the hint which yon gave me to buy it.'* A witty rogue, brought before a Parisian tribunal for a drunken riot, on one occasion assured the bench that he was not a drunkard, but in his childhood he was bitten by a mad dog, and ever since he had a horror of water. The train had just emerged from a tunnel, and a vinegar-faced maiden of thirty-fire summers remarked to her gentleman companion, ' Tunnels are such bores 1' — which nobody can deny. But a young lady of about sweet eighteen, who sat in the seat immediately in front of the ancient party, adjusted her hat, brushed her frizzes back, and said ...

HOW THE LAND LAW IS WORKED. [Newspaper Article] — The Bathurst Post — 16 October 1882

HOW THE LAND LAW IS WORKED. The Echo's Bubbo correspondent calls attention to the fact that many of the selections taken up in the Western district are what is known as 19th section selections, and says : — -It will be well to understand what many of these mean. They are mineral con ditional purchases, and are supposed to be only taken up for bona fide mining- purposes. Now, it is well known that of the 150 M.C.P.s taken up at Dubbo and Coonamble during the past nine or twelve months, not 20 are for mining purposes — are really on land where a mineral was never known to exist, and where even the divining rod of the German impostor in the ' Antiquary' could not dis cover any minerals. The question which will be asked by many readers is, what are they for ? It costs 10s. per acre to secure land under the 19th clause, and why is this money expended if there are no minerals ? The answer is very simple. These selections are a species of that dummy ism which the erysipelas patients pursue...
