NOTES ON THE CHEMISTRY OF HUSBANDRY. No. V. (Australasian.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 4 May 1866

As.we watch the busy pencil, such a ?transcript of nature appeals to our vanity as quite an easy performance ; it seems as though we could do the thing ourselves 'almost as well and almost as rapidly as the artist. Vain delusion! this sketch- ing is the perfection of artistic skill; the pencil has been educated to the task; the hand which appears to be obedient to the magical little instrument has ac- quired by long practice a certainty «of execution; and what seems to the casual observer as the work only of the hand, is, in reality the result of a quick succession of mental operations, in which . all the chief features of the landscape are...

Holloways Ointment and Pills.-Coughs and colds are alike distressing to the patient and annoying to those around him. The mode of cure is simple, innocent, and effective. Hol loway's Ointment should be thoroughly rubbed into the chest and between the blade bones twice a day, while the blood is under- going purification by appropriate doses of his Pills. A double result is thus secured-the air tubes aie relieved of accumulated phlegm and the lungs are freed from an impure circula- tion/ These favoring conditions remove the cause and the cou.h ceases. By the same means, and with equal facility, the treatment by Holloway's inestimable remedies will over- come ulcerated and sore throats, diptheria, bron- chitis, pleurisy, and all asthmatical and pul- monary congestive complaints.

" But if any provide not for his own, and specially for those of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel." -1 Timothy, 5 chap. 8th verse. PUBLIC curiosity respecting who was to be the Acting Comptroller-General, was s .t at rest on Tuesday morning by the an- nouncement that Mr. G-. E. Hampton had been selected by his father, Governor Hampton, to fill the office. This appoint- ment surprised no one, as by all who had any acquaintance with the character and disposition of His Excellency, it had been anticipated that such would follow the success attending the long course of dis- courtesy, insult, and bullying by which Captain Newland was driven from his office. But, until the disgraceful affair had been fully completed there were some persons who, still retaining a degree of respect towards G...

MALDEN ISLAND AND ITS GUANO DEPOSITS. (From the Australasian.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 4 May 1866

MALDEN ISLAND AND ITS GUANO DEPOSITS. (From the Australasian.) Malden Island, a coral formation, of about 12 square miles in extent, situated in the South- ern Pacific Ocean,. in lat* 3 ° 58' 30" S., and Ion. 150° W., is one of the newest sources from which the world obtains its supply of guano. Little, probably, is known of the place in Great Britain, and still less knowledge is possessed on the subject here, although a Mel- bourne firm has been in the enjoyment of a lease of the island from the British Crown for more than eighteen months, and has carried on operations there for a similar period. Malden Island has occupied a place on the map for over thirty years. It was discovered in 1825 by Lord Byron (George Anson), then commanding H.M.S. Blonde, which was returning from a cruise to tho Sandwich Islands. The com- mander sent a boat ashore, but made no pro- longed examination of the place. He ascer- tained, however, that the spot though unin- habited, had been once the residence ...

ON THE MANAGEMENT OF OUR SOILS. (From the Australasian.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 11 May 1866

ON THE MANAaEMENT OP OÜK SOILS. (From the Australasian.) The great secret of successful farming lies in the proper management of the soil. We do not intend to go over the old ground, of the effects of former errors in Australian farming ; but, if possible, to suggest remedies, and to endeavor to arrest the course of the disastrous issues of a systematic spoliation of the soil. It is, in the main, true that bad farming will work its own cure, and that the farmer who works upon right principles will come well out of the contest, and achieve for himself a competency. But many most deserving individuals go into farming with but a very indifferent knowledge of its requirements, and to such we more particularly address these lines, hoping they may find some useful hints in looking through them, and so proceed. It is curions to note the effects of the late dry season upon cereal crops ; the hitherto wor^t districts for wheat growing have this year turned out the best. Such are most of the ...

THE PRINTING PRESS. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 11 May 1866

THE PRINTING- PRESS. ï - T How wisely events follow each other in proper order! Just at the time when the mind of Europe was waking from a thousand years' lethargy and when means were required to spread abroad the results of the inquiries which the learned were making in all branches of science, Caxton gave to the world the Print- ing Press. By its instrumentality the dis- coveries and inventions of one land have become the property of the entire globe, and the advancement of science has been greatly pro- moted No man of the present age has more fully comprehended this truth than Holloway. The same intellect that led him to the studies which resulted1 in the production of his celebra- ted Pills and Ointment saw at once the immense advantage, to the world as well as to himself, which might be drawn from this source. He laid his discoveries before the world, sowing his seed broadcast, wherever a written language is read, and modesty awaited the result. His confident statement of his t...

" Be just and fear not ; Let all the ends thou aim'st at be thy country's, Thy God's, and truth's."-Slwkspeare. lTRIDATrMAY^n7T866T THE Synopsis of the proposed Scab Ordi- nance pnt forward by the Government is, we are told, made up from the Acts now in force in New South Wales and South Australia, but we believe, principally from the former. It includes all the pro- positions agreed to at the Delegates' meeting (omitting the tobacco duty), but it goes into the matter much more deeply, and the penalties in the several clauses provided to meet almost every possible attempt at evasion, are far heavier than the Delegates ventured even to dream of. So far as it is possible to eradicate Scab by force of law, we should suppose the Government have hit upon a measure that will meet the case, but whether it will receive the approbation of those for whose benefit it is framed, is quite another matter. Our bucolic friends will find the sting of the proposal to lie ...

THE PROPOSED SCAB ORDINANCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 11 May 1866

THE PROPOSED SCAB ORDINANCE. Synopsis of proposed Scab Ordinance, for the most part taken from legislation on the sub- ject in operation in New South Wales and South Australia-the exception consisting in the New Sonth Wales' Act having been based, as it seems, on the principle of eradicating scab, by means of accumulated penalties, and the Act of South Australia, providing also for the immediate destruction of infected sheep found in or approaching other flocks ; while the proposed law would allow of the destruction of scabby sheep only on the order of two or more Justices, acting on the complaint of an inspector, and being satisfied, on due enquiry, the owner of sheep infected wilfully neglects to clean them during an allowed quarantine of six months' duration, or if such owner refuses for seven days to pay, and the inspector is unable, for want of goods, to levy a penalty for a breach of quarantine of infected sheep. 1.-Repeal of existing laws. 2.-Interpretation; run; sheep; owner...

VASSE. (From our Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 11 May 1866

VASSE. (From our Correspondent.) Yesterday morning a poor woman named Hutton left her home for a few minutes while her four children were at breakfast. As she was returning screams from the house attracted her attention, and hurrrying on to ascertain the cause she found one of her little girls (about 4 years old) lying on the ground at the garden gate, .with every particle of clothing burnt off her body. The clergyman and doctor were soon in attendance rendering every assistance, but in a few hours death released her from her sufferings. An inquest was this day held on the remains, and it appears the child's clothes caught as she sat near the fire, and running into the open air she was soon in a blaze, the other children being too young to render their sister any assistance. The Clarence Packet arrived at this port for the first time on the 20th ult. ; the business-like and obliging manner of her captain, combined with the comfortable and superior accommo- dation of the vessel, appe...

SIR,-Whether we consider the closeness of argument, the clearness of expression, or the elegance of diction displayed in yesterday's Inquirer, in its remarks on the appointment of Acting Comptroller-General, we cannot fail to agree that it was a remarkable production. Haj>py is the statesman for whom such an apology is prepared ; happy are the people whose opinion is so well expressed by the voice of the press ! No longer need the head uneasy lie that wears a crown, while such a champion stands without with the two-edged svod of logic and language to annihilate its foes. Why ! why ! why ! are we so ungrateful that positively everyone I met yeste day expressed disgust at the Inquirer's leader ? Look at its unanswerable logic : ' the appointment of Act- ing Comptroller was so insignificant that we thought nothing about it ; therefore we have given two columns to an elaborate apology ...

WORKING MEN'S ASSOCIATION.

Holloway's Pills.-Worn out sufferers may hope for relief from these purifying and strength- ening Pills after physic and physicians have failed to effect a cure. In all disorders of the liver and diseases of the kidneys these Pills will be found especially useful in re-instituting order and restoring health. Holloway's Pills clear away obstructions, remove poisonous particles from the blood, secretions and system generally, give purity and regularity to the circulation, tone and power to the stomach, energy and vividness to the brain. Holloway's Pills can be confidently recommended as restoratives of constitutions shattered and broken up by ex- cessive mental labor, intemperance, inordinate indulgence, or other hardships which make the young man old.

Thus, while they may enjoy that true de- light by means of their senses which is afforded by looking at beautiful scenery, or watching the habits of the creatures by which it is peopled, I shall not, I think, be asking too much in calling upon them to go- a step further, and to follow me iu the intellectual in- vestigation of organic structure, it uses, and its adaptation to the purposes for which living thhu's were created.

SEED GRAIN. No. V. [From the Australasian.] [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 11 May 1866

SEED GRAIN. No. y. -? [From the Australasian.'] Both beans and peas take a place in the " four-course shift " system of cul- ture adopted in many countries in Eng- land, and occupy a position similar to that of clover, that is to say, they are sown after a white straw crop, barley or oats, and precede wheat. The amount of hand labour which these crops (beans and peas) demand, and the extent which beans are particularly subject to from the attacks of the aphis or louse and early hot winds, in a great measure prevent their being cultivated in Victoria. Yet we have seen good payable crops of both these grains, and as the higher class of agriculturists now begin to see that a rotation of crops and a better system of culture are necessary to ensure future success, we hope still to see the pulse grains less neglected. Beans contain 75 per cent, of nutritive matter, only 2 per cent, less than that of wheat. In Tas- mania it forms a most important return to many farmers, and any one can sat...

To the Editor of the Perth Gazette 8ç W. A. Times. SIB,-I have noticed in one letter at least lately an outcry against the Storekeepers, and with their way of doing business and the like, and as one of them has not yet spoken publicly on the subject, and seeing that although they care little or nothing one way or the other, the public should know some of the difficulties un- der which they labor. This district, for instance, would never have [ been what it ia without their assistance; one half the tillage leases would have remained still waste lands of the Crown, and our yearly census have shewn a rapidly decreasing number. Almost any man who is moderately respect- able and can shew that his intentions are strictly honest and his endeavors worthy of patronage, can obtain from the Merchant or Storekeeper a year's rations on credit for him- self and men ^clearing and sowing, and .they will often obtain through the before-named source a team and horses and other necessaries for agricul...
