AGRICULTURAL REVIEW OF THE WEEK. WEDNESDAY, NOV. 23. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian — 26 November 1864

AGRICULTURAL REVIEW OF THE WEEK. WedhesdeT, Nov. ' Wheat and flour have still a downward tendency, bat the up country demand for good flour, in addition to that of the bakers in town, keepe up the price of the best sorts wonderfully well, considering the quantity pouring in from all quarters. Horse-corn has undergone no change since last week, the best colonial oats remaining in fair demand at tolerably firm prices. The hay market has not been so folly supplied this week, so that the downward tendency in prices has been checked for the present The new hay coming in is ail in very good condition, some of it thoroughly dry, and none in the least weather-stained, thus comparing most favour ably with the few loads of inferior old hay still sent in, and materially interfering with the sale of these. Good accounts are still received of the wheat crop in South Australia, but the exceedingly hot weather of last week must have done In jury in those pstts of the country in which a want of rai...

THE YEOMAN'S PAGE. DAIRY BUILDINGS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian — 26 November 1864

THE YEOMAN'S PAGE. DAIRY BUILDINGS. Now that tbe Bummer is advancing, the want of good dairy buildings will be more and more felt every day, and in the absence of these, and the consequent ex treme changes of temperature in the milk and cream, no amount of care and skill will suffice 10 insure good dairy pro duce, so that the late very plentiful supply of butter must shortly begin to fall off, and much of what does come to market will be of doubtful quality. People with pleuty of money can of course obtain the services of an architect or builder versed in such matters, and have Iheir dairies built of etone, witli double roofs, and lilted up with slate or even marble slabs for shelves, aud en arrangement of boilers, hot and cold vrator pipes, &c, lo keep the tempera ture within certain limits all the year round; but such persons and their buildings we may safely leave to the professionals. The greater part of the dairy work for the country has, however, to be carried on by pe...

INTERCOLONIAL QUESTIONS. (noil the quraa*u*i> covbiis, bov. 11.) Every one who lia* fisltb in the ultimate greatness of Australia aa • nation must find much (bat le Interesting and Instructive in the consideration of the very important poll-1 tical and social questions which are juat now agitating a majority of the colonies. There never was a time when it so much behoved the people of this vast island, and particu lar); th« se who dwell in the Queensland ter rltoiy, to watch attentively the progress of current events. The establishment of new settlements in the far north, in which both South Australia and Queensland are engaged in rivalry, is not ths least Important of those questions, though the one about whose result we feel the least anxiety or uncertainty.

WHAT PROTECTION HAS DONE FOR THE UNITED STATES. (FROM THE ARGUS.) [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian — 26 November 1864

WHAT PROTECTION HAS DONE FOR THE UNITED STATES. (fbom the abgcb.) That which la plauilbly called "protection to LatiTe Industry." or, in other words, the ingenious device for inducing hale men to hobble upon crhtchef, has coat the United States ££00,000,000 etelling, has led to the sacrifice of 110.000 lives, and has been mainly inatiutLental in biitglng about the dissolu tion ef the most poweifcl and prosperous republic of modern timee. If the fanaticism of the abolitionists in the Northern precipi tated the secession of the Southern States, litre can be no question that the primary sou ice of disunion was the adoption of a piouclionise taiifl by Congress, which was as repugnant to the feelings as it was hostile to the interests of tire cotton plsnten and sugar growers in the South. Seoetdon, it must be remembered, «as veiy nearly ac complished in 1Kc8, when the integrity of the Unitn was tnly maintained by a politic abandonment, on ibepart of tbsQuvernment of the day, of the prote...

AQUATICS AND FAIR PLAY. (FROM THE FIELD OF SEPTEMBER 10.) [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian — 26 November 1864

AQUATICS AND FAIR PLAY. (FBOX TBS HELD OF BEFTE1IBSS 10.) Assuretlly, 11 tJiere De any one thing among the virtues which we arc in the habit of arrogating to ourselves, upon which we pride ourselves more than upon (he others, it is our lore of fair play. Tlrnt " fair play is a jewel " is a motto wliicu every Greet Briton is willing to adopt as the label of his escutcheon. Never bit a man when he's down; take aide with the weaker; don't let two set upon one; a lair ring and no favour—such are the rough hut honest maxims which are instilled into every Englishman's heart from his youth up, and which help to make up that inbred love of fair play upon which he so justly prides him self. It it just possible that eome of our more modem political dogmas ausut " non-inter vention, ** moral suasion," and so forth, may slightly militate against this great national principle. If so, the blame must be laid to the polities rather than to the national heart, and we are convinced that, if the kingd...

BAILWAY EXTENSION. fr*OU TBS BABT0BA1* THOU. SOT. 19.) One of the happiest eigne of progress in the Australian colonies is tho attention which legislators are giving to this subject. 1 he promotion of these works is a healthy symptom in these communities. Queens land, the last bom of the Australian group, is pushing forward the subject with vigour. South Australia is doing the mains, and offering, by a considerable grant of land, to subsidise companies to be hereafter formed. The Victorians have jnet bisected their won derful colon; so that goods taken from the ship's hold at Wlillamstown can through the territory without having touched Victorian soil, from Hobson's Bay to tbe Hurray.

SPIRIT OF THE PRESS. ACCLIMATISATION. (FROM THE ARGUS, NOV. 21) [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian — 26 November 1864

SPIRIT OF THE PRESS. acclimatisation. fFROlf TBI AMDS, MOT. 21 ) Tbo third annual report of the Vic torian Acclimatisation Society is a document creditable to the publio spirit of tbo colony, and to the seal and intel ligence of the gentlemen who have taken upon themselves the arduous and im portant work of the acclimatiser. , Per haps the most gratifying fact which is there recorded is the very luge and in creasing share of support which' the society has received at the hands of all classes of the people of this country. Not only are we able to eay that in no country in the world is the cause of ac climatisation so liberally aided, but also that nowhere else, not even in .the older countries of France and England, is the work performed more systematically and on a larger scale. In point of revenue, the Victorian society stands actually the highest of all such societies.
