CHRISTMAS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 23 December 1873

CHRISTMAS. OUR ancestors certainly knew the art of keeping Christmas better than we do, but Time, in its changing progress, has left un- impaired, many excellent observances, and rejected others, as unsuited to the character of the age, and the more severe standard by which we judge morality. To conciliate the boisterous merriment of the past with the increased comforts and the habits of calm reflection of the present day, is clearly impos- sible. Christmas, in this improved sense, is still popularly cherished. The "yule log" blazes in the expansive chimney-the carol, in many parts of England, ushers in the morning ; the holly branch and mistletoe deck our houses ; the substantial dainties of the season smoke upon the board ; and be- sides these, we have music, dancing, games, riddles, forfeits, and amusements, that make both young and old salute the departing foot- steps of the year with a hearty laugh. And it has been truly observed, that the very sim- plicity of these gaities giv...

PRICE OF BEEF. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 23 December 1873

PRICE OF BEEF. As an estimate of the value of the several breeds of cattle for their meat-producing qualities, we give, from the Gardener's Chronicle and Agricultural Gazette, of Octo- ber 4, the metropolitan market of October 2nd : (Per stoue of 81b.) s. d, s. d. Best Scots, Herefords, &c. 6 Oto6 4 Best Shorthorns. 5 8-6 0 2nd quality beasts . 5 0-5 4 Best Downs and Half-breds 6 6-6 10 Ditto Shorn ... . - Best Long-wools . 0 0-6 4 Ditto Shorn ... ... ... - Ewes and 2nd quality ... 5 4-5 8 Ditto Shorn. . - Lambs... .. - Calves... ... . 3 8-5 6 1 Pigs ... . 4 4-5 6 Beasts, 1070 ; Sheep and Lambs, 6410 ; Calves, 465 ; Pigs, 120. It will be seen by this that the meat from the Shorthorns is of less "market value than the other breeds of cattle.

THE BOLT NUISANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 23 December 1873

THE BOLT NUISANCE. WE have often rebuked the persistency with which manufacturers of agricultural imple- ments will continue to use round-headed bolts in their machines, which, when they come loose, are next to impossible to be tightened. It is easier to find fault than to suggest a remedy, at least very often; but we are glad to have to say that this nuisance and loss arising from the use of bolts that turn in the hole, and nuts that become loose and get lost, may be completely avoided. The lock-nut bolt is the " Cumming" bolt for agricultural machines. By the use of a copper wire key inserted into a groove in the bolt, the nut, when screwed up, may be locked so that no jarring can loosen it. A wrench, however, will loosen the nut with ease. farmers now should iusist that every machine they purchase is put together with this "lock-nut bolt," and thousands of pounds, in the aggregate, will be saved yearly, to say nothing of the peace of mind they will have secured.

Review. Sunday Schools Class Register. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 23 December 1873

Sunday Schools Class Register. WE have received from the publishers Messrs. Joseph Cook and Co., Churchman office-a copy of the above manual for 1874. Like its predecessors, it is very neatly got up, and its arrangement is likely to facilitate that order, accuracy, and method which tends so much to the proper conduct of a Sunday School. We observe that by taking a dozen or more a considerable reduction is made in the price.

WORTH READING BY MINERS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 23 December 1873

WORTH READING BY MINERS. INFUSION or decoction of coffee is a whole- some and nutritive beverage ; it diminishes the disposition to sleep, and hence it is used by those who require to keep awake for study or other purposes. Medically, it is found, like tea, useful in some forms of head- ache, when there is not any determination of blood to the head ; and it is also especially useful in some cases of spasmodic asthma, when taken strong. Liebig and the present race of physiological chemists attribu te very ' considerable nutritive powers to the caffeine contained in coffee ; their theories are partly borne out by the following facts, which so fully set forth the value of coffee as a bever- age, that we recommend attention to them. At the Academy of Sciences at Paris, M. Gasparin read a paper, in which he showed that the miners of Charleroi preserve their health and bodily vigour on a diet containing scarcely half the amount of nourishment of that of any other class of labourers ia Eur...

THE VITALITY OF POLLEN. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 23 December 1873

TBE VITALITY OF POLLEN. THK 'Revue Horticole cites an instance in which pollen collected in 1867 was found in 1872 capable of fertilising the pistils to which it was applied. The plant upon which the experiment was made was the Cer<itozar)i\fy Mexicana, one of the Cycas family, in which, the staminate and pistilate flowers are borne upon separate plants. The only care taken, with the pollen was to preserve it from., moisture. EYES.-An eye-fancier writes thus learn- edly of the mysteries :-It has often been said that a woman with a hazel eye never elopes from her husband, never chats scandal, never sacrifices her husband's comfort for her own, never finds fault, never talks too much or too little, is always au entertaining, agree- able and lovely companion. "We never knew,'' says a quilldriver, " but one uninter- esting and unamiable woman with a hazel eye, and she had a nose, which, as the Yankee says, like the little end of nothing whittled down to a point."

THE BREEDS FOR BEEF OR MILK. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 23 December 1873

THE BEEEDS FOB, BEEF OR MILK. IN the eastern and middle States of America, cattle are raised for both milk and beef, but more for milk than beef. In the greater por- tion of the western and south-western States they are raised more generally for beef, though milk is to some extent a consideration. Throughout the west are found, says a cor- respondent of the Albany Country Gentleman, among all the large herds, shorthorn bulls, and the Texas cows liave been bred to short- horn bulls to such an exteut that some of the large herds show a considerable amount of blood. As there is no dairying in these large herds, milk is of no consequence, provided each cow supplies enough to raise her calf. As the Texas cattle found on the western prairies aud plains are active, and possess no great inclination to take on flesh, and as beef ia what is sought, the cross with the short- horn must produce cattle admirably adapted to the plains and prairies. But how is it with tie dairying interests of the ...

MILK. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 23 December 1873

MILK. - SOME startling revelations as to the import- ance of this article of daily food to the health and comfort of a people have lately appeared in the leading London journals. On this simple diet is commonly raised the future statesman that is to guide a nation, the war- rior to defend her, the judge to preserve her laws, the engineer and man of science to aid her prosperity, the poet and painter to refine her taste, and the historian to record their actions and her history. That the food consumed by the mother has an extraordinary effect upon the quality and character of the milk she produces, and that it immediately acts upon the offspring im- bibing it ; that the general health of the offspring is also effected by the state of the mother, mentally as well as bodily ; that the diet of the mother should only be such as expe- rience has taught to be wholesome and judi- cious ; that quiet and peace of mind is neces- sary, as well as thorough cleanliness, free exercise, and pure ai...

A HOMEWARD VOYAGE IN THE NORTHUMBERLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 23 December 1873

A HOMEWARD VOYAGE IN THE NORTHUMBERLAND. THE six illustrations on the above subject are from drawings made by a passenger on board the Northumberland, which left Mel- bourne on the 17ch May last for England via the Cape of Good Hope, and are meant to represent a few of the scenes which interested him in the course of the voyage. The first is Cape Town, the view of which from the bay anchorage is very striking. Behind rise the perpendicular sides of Table Mountain, while, on either hand, are the . barren crags of the Lion's Head and Devil's Peak ; the former usually capped with a cloud. The next illustration represents a funeral at sea. A few days after leaving the Cape one of the passengers died, and was buried the same evening. On arrival at St. Vincent the ship was, in consequence of the death that had happened on board, put in quarantine, and the yellow flag was hoisted accordingly. The passengers won't forget that day in a hurry. The crew were getting in coal, making every one a...

WHAT IS GOOD BUTTER? [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 23 December 1873

WHAT IS GOOD BUTTER? .SHOULD we pay 18d. per pound for butter, when this essential at our breakfast table is sold at 7d. ? It is not pretended that this modest figure commends an article possessed of all the freshness and rich flavour in which a connoisseur would delight ; but in Liver- pool, lately, a quantity of butter was actually sold at 7d., which is officially reported to be free from serious impurity or adulteration. But, tickled at such a ridiculous sacrifice, the inspectors were down upon the merchant who was thus underselling his neighbours ; his wares were examined by the borough analyst, and a summons issued against him for adulteration. But such conflicting evidence was adduced before the stipendiary magis- trate that he referred the question to. an ex- pert. Several gentlemen applied to declined the delicate duty, which was eventually un- dertaken by Professor Anderson, of Glas- gow, who reports as follows : " I have carefully examined and analyzed the sample of butter...

DEATH OF THE REV. JOHN WEST. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 23 December 1873

DEATH OF THE REV. JOHN WEST. WE regret to announce the demise of this gentleman, which took place shortly after ll p.m. on Thursday, the 11th instant. The deceased had been for many years connected with the journalistic literature of the Australian colonies, and it is remarkable that while his pen treated on such a variety of topics-social, political, moral, and reli- gious-his writings were always characterised by a temperate tone. After a residence of nearly sixteen years in Tasmania, he ac- cepted, in 1855, the position of editor of the Sydney Morniny Herald-an office which he filled until the day ot his melancholy seizure. While proceeding home-on the evening of the day mentioned-he was suddenly at- tacked by apoplexy, and expired shortly after reaching his residence. At the time of his death Mr. West had attained his 65th year, and during his moderately long life he secured a larger amount of the respect and esteem of those around him than falls to the lot of most men.

MR. RAWORTH'S WATER-COLOUR COLLECTION. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 23 December 1873

MR. RA WORT H'S WATER-COLOUR COLLECTION. VISITORS to Sydney during the Christmas holidays would do well to visit the rooms of Mr. Haworth, Lauriston Terrace, Phillip, street, to inspect the very large collection of New Zealand and New South Wales paintings which that gentleman is now exhibiting. Of the New Zealand pictures we have spoken before-it is therefore sufficient to say that although a few have been disposed of by Art Union and otherwise-the gx-eater portion, and the most admirable, still remain. It is now the intention of Mr. Raworth to part with twenty-eight of these flue paintings by Art Union-together with two New South Wales subjects ; and in order that lovers of fine art, or intending subscribers, may have the opportunity of a careful and comfortable examination he has had the pictures artisti- cally hung in a spacious and suitably-lighted room. We understand that the Art Union distribution is likely to take place early in the year, as a great number of tickets have al...

OTJR SUPPLEMENT. THE DIGGERS' SATURDAY NIGHT. "How luxurious the gold diggers of the present day have become," will be the first exclamation "uttered by the delvers of Ophir and Summer Hill Creek in the good old days of rich "pockets" and " jewellers' shops," when they glance at the coloured engraving of which we propose to give a description " Why, Bill," we can imagim: Kangaroo Bob continuing, "a tent used to clo us, and a bark hut was someat out of the common.

FUNERAL OF A MAORI CHIEF. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 23 December 1873

FUNERAL OF A MAORI CHIEF. Iï is only in a very few parts of New Zea- land, and these gradually narrowing, that the natives can how be seen in their primi- tive condition. Even in their stronghold in the heart of the Waikato country, they have not altogether succeeded in their determina- tion to keep up their old manner of life, and almost everywhere else throughout the islands they have been affected more or less in their manners and customs by contact with English civilization. In nothing, perhaps, are the Maories of the present day so little altered from their savage forefathers as in the ex- pression of their grief, but even in this respect a considerable change is noticeable, as may he seen. in our illustration of the funeral of a Maori chief. The scene depicted by our artist occurred at a native Kianga, near Kaipoi, in the Middle Island. The deceased, whose remains the tribe are represented as conducting from the Kianga to the Maori cemetery, was a chief named Pita Te Hori. The...

INTERCOLONIAL CHESS MATCH. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 23 December 1873

INTERCOLONIAL CHESS MATCH. THE piaying of chess by telegraph has of I late years become quite an institution in j these colonies. The first match of the kind took place in the year 1868 between Victoria and South Australia, the conditions being, that seven players selected on each side should be paired by lot, and that each pair should contest one game. It will be remem- bered that this match terminated in a com- plete victory for the Victorians, who scored 5 games, lost 1, and drew 1. In 1870 the first match between Victoria and New South Wales was inaugurated, and has since been repeated annually with the same regularity as the cricket match. Our illustration represents the appearance of the Telegraph Office on the occasion of the last match, which took place on the 10th November. The players on the side of Victoria were Messrs. Burns, Goldsmith, Heap, Phillips, Sedgefield, Stanley, and Stephen, who were opposed, in the order named, to Messrs. Ryan, Crain, Walker, Smith, Heydon, a...
