No Title [Newspaper Article] — The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser — 12 April 1864
IT is rumsoured,--and the rumour-is re peated -by the Sydney. coriespondents of some of the country. journals,-that the ministry are not only desirous of bringing to a close. the present sessionu of parlia ment; a session whicli has bdcn so uncon scionably and so unprofitabl3, lengthened,. but that'they-that is, Mr. JAMES'IMAR TIN, who is the ministry-will after such prorogation advise a speedy dissolution. We do not take it for granted that there is any good foundlation for this rumour, because it appears in the communications of metropolitan " correspondents," who must,'at any rate, find something to say; but it is probable enough, on the suppo sition that the Premier is not quite in different to the nature of the opinion which' the country must forin as to his character and measures. Perhaps, too,. his ExoELLENOY, under the pressure of the numerous petitions which have been presepted relative to the dissolution, feels himself bound to intimate in private consultation with his "re...

HOW TO CURE A SPAVINED HORSE. [Newspaper Article] — The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser — 19 April 1864
IOW TO CURTE A SPAVINED HORSE. A correspondent of the Vew uEngland Farmer writes: "I have a fine mare, which three years ago became very lame from a bone spavin on thile inside of the left hind leg. After pretty hard driving for several days, she became so lame that she was unfit for use. The spavin was very tender, and she rested the foot constantly on the toe when she stood. I took her to the black smith, and directed him to put on a shoe without any toe cork, and with blunt heel corks two inchles long. She imme diately travelled much better, and when she stood, rested the foot on the toe and heel corks, thus relieving the contracted cord from the strain to which it hid been constantly subjected. In a short time thie inflammnation and tenderness subsided, the swelling abated, and she travelled very well. She wore off the inside corke faster than tile outside one, wihen she be gan to be lanme again. I then hIad the shoe re-set, and tile corks made of tlhe same length, and she soon ...
