EMIGRATION AND IMMIGRATION. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 22 November 1873

EMIGRATION AND IMMIGRATION. WHEN time has so increased the population of a country as to destroy the natural and necessary proportion's between the people and the extent of land their greatly increased numbers have to occupy, or reside upon, « Emigration becomes a necessity, as well as an advantageous and prudent measure to adopt. At this stage, it appears from late accounts, the population of our Mother Coun- try has arrived. Particularly is this the case with the class agricultural, who now find the land in the old country so closely occu- pied with cities, towns, villages, and associ- ated industries, as to prevent of a reasonably profitable cultivation of this greatly lessened proportional, and consequently rateably scarcer and dearer land, and that the capital, skill, time, and labour of the farmer cannot enjoy an equivalent return to that met with in other trades or manufactures. When a young country, as New South Wales, has at command a superabundant proportional quantity of ...

PITCHERICHE PASS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 22 November 1873

PITOHERICHE PASS. THE Pitcheriche Pass, in South Australia, takes its name from a singular peak to which it is immediately contiguous. The pass is situated in the county of Frome, in the Flin- ders Range, on the road to Port Augusta. The Salbia Creek flows through it and also the township of Salbia, at the entrance of the pass. The surrounding country is pastoral and alluvial, and the scenery in the ranges is peculiarly beautiful.

IMMIGRANTS' RESERVES. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 22 November 1873

IMMIGRANTS' RESERVES. THIS division of about 100,000 acres of land is, of course, an imaginary block of ordinary country, and divided on the excellent, just, and practical system introduced by the late Sir Thomas Mitchell. In a new country it was found rapid as well as cheap in execution, fair to the public, and beneficial to the general private interests of selectors and purchasers. The lines runuing on the cardinal points of I the compass were readily discovered and I traced, and a judgment of the relative lots rapidly made. No favour could be shown, as chance decided the water frontages as well as the qualities or value of the several blocks. One rule was absolute, and a most fair one : if the divisional lines ran so as to leave less than a section on a water or river frontage, a purchaser had to buy the section behind it as well. The opposite sketch of the division of a block of land twelve by thirteen miles, or 156 square miles of country, or 99,840 acres, is what our experienc...

THE VICTORIAN COURT AT THE VIENNA EXHIBITION. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 22 November 1873

THE VICTORIAN COURT AT THE VIENNA EXHIBITION. OUR artist's sketch of the Victorian Court at the Vienna Exhibition admirably illustrates the multifariousness of the natural products, and the peculiar character of those industries which constitute the wealth and indicate the importance of that colony. The arrange- ments as regards the placing of the exhibits and the economising of space would appear to be most satisfactory, and deserving of the high encomiums bestowed thereon in the accounts received from correspondents each successive mail. The court occupies the middle space allotted in the building to the colonies, and not a foot of that portion allowed for exhibits has been left unem- ployed. Upon no previous occasion have so many evidences of the great resources of Victoria been collected within, comparatively speaking, so small a compass. Wool and gold are of course its staple products, and, as such, «take prominence amongst the ex- hibits. These are supplemented by samples of t...

Selected Poetry. FARMER JOHN. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 22 November 1873

Stotel* ftottrp* FARMER JOHN. BY J. T. TROWBRIDGE. I Home from his journey Farmer John Arrived this morning, safe and sound ; His black coat off and his old clothes on, " Now I'm myself," says Farmer John. And he thinks, I'll look around. Up leaps the dog ; " Get down, you pup ! Are you so glad you would eat me up ? " The old cow IOWB at the gate, to greet him ; The horses prick up their ears to meet him ; "Well, well, old Bay ! Ha, ha, old Gray ! Do you get fed when I'm away ? " You haven't a rib ! " says Farmer John ; " The cattle are looking round and sleek j The colt is going to be a roan, And a beauty, too, how he has grown 1 We'll wean the colt next week," Says Farmer John, " When I've been off, To call you again about the trough, And Watch you and pet you, while you drink, Is greater comfort than you can think ! " And he pats old Bay, And he slaps old Gray " Ah, this is the comfort of going away 1 " "For, after all," says Farmer John, " The best of a journey is getting home. ...

MOUNT VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 22 November 1873

MOUNT VICTORIA. ON the top of the opposite page is a view of Sir Thomas Mitchell's bold road for ascend- ing the Blue Mountains from the western side of this high and barren range. When it was planned some forty years ago, it created as much sensation as our present railway zig zags dp now. Pew can imagine the mountain pass that was previously used by drays and other trame, and called a road ; and few would believe it possible, if shown to them as in its primitive state, that drays and other wheeled vehicles could ever have travelled it at all. Well can we remember the general anxiety in those days to see it completed, and the many yarns of the bullock-drivers' difficulties and contrivances to ascend the range with four bales of wool as a load ; and the danger and greater difficulty of coming down the old track or so-called road. And now it lies quietly at rest, a mere memento of the pluck and energy of the early settlers. How different does it appear since its rival railway has pas...

SOUNDNESS—WHAT IT IS IN A HORSE, AND SOME REMARKS ON THE PURCHASE AND SALE OF HORSES. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 22 November 1873

SOUNDNESS-WHAT IT IS IN A HORSE, AND SOME REMARKS ON THE PURCHASE AND SALE OF HORSES. THE elastic conscience of a horse-dealer is well known, but whether it is more elastic and accommodating to his self-interest, or more commonly put to the stretch than that of any other man of business, we cannot de- termine ; but this we believe, that it may be useful to mauy of our readers to become ac- quainted with the laws and customs regulating horse-dealing. The following extracts on the subject will be found instructive and useful to many :-Now, few intending purchasers of a horse will be content with anything less than what they believe to be absolute per- fection in him ; and if the seller tells the truth about the animal he has to dispose of, his chance of a sale would be a poor one. Unless a purchaser is really a judge, he will do well to place himself in the hands of a respectable dealer, telling him exactly what he requires, and not pretending a knowledge which he does not possess. In...

THE DANCING GIRL; OR, A QUESTION OF PROPRIETY. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 22 November 1873

THE DANCING GIRL ; OR, A QUESTION OP PROPRIETY. ONE of the most attractive pictures in the Victorian National Gallery is that known as the Dancing Girl. The picture is of good size, the canvas measuring 60 inches by 108, and presents to view some twenty figures, admirably grouped for picturesque and dra- matic effect. It is evident at a glance what the artist intended to represent. By the wand of his artistic genius he transports the spectator to Spain, and puts him en rapport with a scene which has been often enacted in that land of Christian, Jew, and Moor, of caballero and gipsy. The subject recalls to mind the days of the Church's supremacy, when she claimed to be not only the mother and mistress of nations, but also the absolute controller of society from the. highest ranks to the lowest, and when the terrible Spanish Inquisition exercised a censorship in matters of popular amusement as well as in the i sphere of religious and scientific ideas. It i summoned to its tribunal not...

Poetry. QUIPS AND CRANKS. A STUDY FOR FOREIGNERS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 22 November 1873

poetry. QUIPS AND CRANKS. A STUDY FOR FOREIGNERS. A pretty deer is dear to me, A hare with downy hair, A hart I love with all my heart, But barely bear a bear. 'Tis plain that not one takes a plane To have a pair of pears, . Although a rake may take a rake To tear away the tares. Sol's rays raise thyme, time razes all, And .through the whole holes wears. A scribe in writing right may write To Wright, and still be wrong. For write and rite are neither right, And dout to right belong. Robertson is not Robert's son, Nor did he rob Burt's son, Yet Robert's sun is Robin's sun, And everybody's sun. Beer often brings a bier to man, Coughing a coffin brings, And ton much ale will make us aiL As well as other things. The person lies who says he lies When he is not reclining, And when consumptive folks decline, They all decline declining. Quail do not quail before a storm, A bough will bow before it, We cannot rein the rain at all, No earthly power reigns o'er it. The dyer dyes awhile, then d...

CLACKING AND OVER-REACHING IN HORSES. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 22 November 1873

CLACKING AND OVER-REACHING IN HORSES. COMMON as are these two faults, they are frequently misunderstood. An over-reach is looked upon as an unavoidable accident, and clacking is treated by irrational alterations of the hind shoes. "We couple them together because they present some common features. Both consist of interference with the forefoot by the hind one, both are due to some tem- porary defect in the action, and both can be prevented by altering the form of shoe. Clacking, or, as it is sometimes called, "forging," is the name given to the sound produced by the hind shoe striking the fore one in progression. It is usually heard at the trot, and seldom noticed in adult horses. It is most common in- young horses out of con- dition, and especially noticeable when they I are tired. The noise is produced by the hind ' shoe striking the under surface of the fore one just behind the toe, not at the heels. When the blow has been repeated so as to leave an impression, the marks are fouu...

THE FIRST CHURCH, DUNEDIN. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 22 November 1873

THE .FIRST CHURCH, DUNEDIN. ! THE freestone work of the pulpit of the new First Church is completed, and it presents a very handsome appearance. Besides the elegant tracery work there are six small I birds with outspread wings ranged round I the centre of the pulpit, at even distances. The most prominent feature of this beautiful I work of art is the large bird, with an olive bough of four leaves in its beak, having its wings outstretched just underneath the Bible stand. Fach of the mouldings has a different design, and consists of oak, blue-bell, ivy, sweet-briar, shamrock, and native creepers. The ornamental work on the nine columns upon which the pulpit stands is also varied. The two large columns on the north and south of the pulpit are ornamented with clusters of fern leaves and native creepers, one containing a bird feeding its young, and the other a bird and butterfly. The other four large columns are also carved in various styles. Another design in one of the angles of the c...

AUSTRALIAN AGRICULTURAL COMPANY'S COAL MINES, NEWCASTLE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 22 November 1873

AUSTRALIAN AGRICULTURAL COM PANY'S COAL MINES, NEWCASTLE. THE coal mines of New South Wales un- doubtedly form one of the chief sources of her wealth ; and, from the extensive inter- course with other countries which such a trade must develop, it conduces largely to the importance of the colony. In a statis- tical review of the progress of New South Wales, Mr. C. Rolleston makes the following remarks in connection with the subject of coal :-" We may calculate with certainty on a production, limited only by the demand, for ages to come. Whilst gold confounds all the theories of geologists, and defies their conclusions, the existence and extent of our coal formation is a matter of as much cer- tainty to the experienced eye of the geologist as if it lay on the surface. And now that the miners and their employers seem to have arrived at a better understanding, and to perceive that it is to the interest of both to work in harmony, we can confidently hope that the production may attain pr...

OUR SUPPLEMENT. "PUNCH AND JUDY." [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 22 November 1873

OUR SUPPLEMENT. " PUNCH AND JUDY." AMONG- the " institutions " which have been imported from England to Australia, that of the ancient drama of " Punch " is worthy of remark. . Of Italian extraction, it has always been a favourite with Englishmen, whether met with on the village green, or in the back streets of busy London. . Here it is speedily becoming acclimatised, and is now to be found pretty generally on racecourses, picnic-grounds, or at the Exhibi- tion, always surrounded by a crowd of old and young. In our reproduction of Webster's famous engraving, we have the genial hunchback disporting his wit for the gratification of a village audience. The old pensioner resting on his crutch, enjoys the treat as much as the veriest youngster. The baker's man is halting to see the fun, regardless of the cooling bake meats on his head. The pot-boy is in a con- dition of delicious abandonment, his news and his beer both rapidly growing " stale, flat, and unprofitable ;" while the village ...

YAM CREEK, NORTHERN TERRITORY. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 22 November 1873

YAM CREEK, NORTHERN TERRI TORY. YAM CHEEK occupies a somewhat prominent position amongst the rising gold-fields of the Northern Territory. About 120 miles dis- tant from Port Darwin, it is contiguous to, and bears the same name as, one of the sta-, tions on the telegraph line. The locality is described as hilly ; the rises are steep, rough, and covered with quartz. From all accounts, Yam Creek bids fair to distinguish itself amongst reefing districts. The gold is mainly to he found in the lesser reefs, leaders, and spurs which streak the surface of the hill. Starting from the Warden's and Police Camp, which is represented in our illustration, and which is entirely constructed of canvas tents .-those in the bell form being the men's quar- ters-the most important claims are as fol- lows : - The Kapunda Claim, 200 acres ; Westcott's Claim, 160 acres ; the Princess Louise, 20 acres ; Yam Creek Company, 60 acres ; Mat's Claim, 60 acres ; and the Port Darwin Company, about 40 acres.

BITS ABOUT SYDNEY. GOVERNOR BOURKE'S STATUE - ENTRANCE TO THE DOMAIN. IN continuing our series of "Bits," we have this month selected that picturesque spot, the Domain Entrance at the top of Bent street, near the Free Public Library. No better description can be given of the scene than that contained in the " Visitors' Guide to Sydney," published by W. Maddock, of George-street. The Sydney people are justly proud of their " Domain." It is, next to the Gar- dens, the most beautiful place of resort near the city. It comprises 138 acres, and occu- pies a site unsurpassed for magnificence. It is of an irregular shape. On the eastern side is an expansive sheet of water, known as Woolloomooloo Bay ; and from the extreme northern end, on which stands Macquarie Battery, the greater portion of the harbour of Port Jackson may be seen. It contains now very nearly four miles of carriage-road, and upwards of four miles and-a-half of foot-paths. The native trees, mostly Euca- lypti and Banksias, ...
