Disease in Cane. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Star — 2 June 1877
Disease in Cane» Wu ai'e indebted to the courtesy of'Mr. C. T. Staiger for the opportunity of examining specimens of tho parasitic insect which, there is no longer any reason to doubt, has estab lished itself in some of the canefields of this district. Within the . sheath of au affected piece of canetoj), from Induh.Plantation, were to bu seen tho adult insects, iu shape, size and colour like flattened grains of millet, enveloped in a white flocculent substance, which on examination with a lens proved to be composed of myriads of interlacing filaments, resembling the mycelium of mushrooms. In every intertice of this woolly nest tiny specs of aoarid' life, the tender progeny of the adult pests, swarmed. Their charaeter as true mites was made evident by the corrugated soft bodies an"l sprawling weak legs. It is satisfactory to be able to announce on the authority of Mr. Pruohe-Aubry, a gentleman frotn Bourbon, that they are not the redoubtable " pou blanc " of that and the sister isla...
How Nelson Fell. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Star — 2 June 1877
lloví Nelson Fell. THE " Revue do France " publishes a curious anecdote respesting the Battle of Trafalgar. It names Gersale, a sailor of Paimpol, as the man who shot Nelson, and furnishes the following account given by the Breton sailor : -"A detonation resounded, and a great cry of triumph rose from our deck. We had disabled two of the rogues which had menaced us, and the vessel which had contained tho English admiral, after a . detour, had been drivon by the wind, and presented her stem to us. We had therefore done some great damage to her. In fact, from the masthead whore I was I saw that the gear of the rudder had been carried away. Sailors were hasten ing to replace it in tho midst of the confusion caused by the going to and fro of tho men who earriod the dead and wounded. A group of officers stood at tho gangway of the poop. Among them a little slender man, who wore three stars on his breast, gave orders; I heard him speak. I lowered my eyos, and on the trafiVail of his vesse...
The Prince and Princess of Wales. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Star — 2 June 1877
Thc Prince ami Princess of Wales. MANY rumours have been in circulation (says tlie ' Lancet ') concerning the health of his Royal Highness tho Prince of Wales. From an authentic source we learn that the Prince is suffering from abscess, adjacent to the perineum, attributed to the effects of an injury roceived while hunting. His Royal High ness's stirrup slipped, and a severe strain resulted. The abscess has been opened, the patient being under the iufiuenoo of an a luesthetic. Perfect relief has ensued, and tho Prince is doing well, although some time must elapse before the healing process is complete. Tho locale of tho present, injury is probably determined by tho fact that induration-the result of inflamación, which first appeared after the attack of typhoid fever to which his Royal Highness was subjected some years ago-still affects the seat of thc abscess. Tho inflamatory indur ation recurred two years after the fever, and it reappeared previously to the departure of his Royal H...

Tolls and Ferries. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Star — 2 June 1877
Tolls and Ferries. Li the Legislative Assembly, the other night -On tlie motion that the Speaker leave the chair and the House resolve itself into Committee of Supply, Mr, Jacob moved that it was expedient to abolish all tolls or ferry dues on Government ferries throughout the colony. The hon, member regretted that he was obliged to bring forward his motion aa an amendment, the matter being so urgent that he considered it his duty to take that course, at the same time disclaiming any intention of obstructing the Government. He (Mr. Jacob) oauld not see ort what grounds ferry dues were retained while tolls on roads and bridge."! were abolished and thought that the House must have been uuder some misapprehension the other night when it omitted " ferries " front the i'asolubion moved by Mr, Terry. The first cost of ferries was as nothing compared with tho C03t of bridges, and ho contended that it ivaa unjust to allow free traolo over the latter While those who had to use the former wer...
The Strength of Russia and Turkey. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Star — 2 June 1877
The Strength of Russia and Turkey. A WRITER in tho London 'Times' gives what ? he-considers trustworthy facts ro jrarding the'numerical forces of Russia and Turkey. He says :-In the first place, no doubt oan exist of the superiority at present of Turkeys at sea. Sho possesses, thanks to European loans, 20 excellent ironclads at -least, - and a considerable fieot. of steam transports ; and Russia aould oppose to these pilly two monitors and a few frigates, in the Euxine, the only possible theatre of maritime operations in the supposed conflict. On ' the other hand, the power of Russia on land is so infinitely greater than that of tho Porte, that a comparison appears to be almost idle. Tho armies of the Czar have not- yet reached, indeed, the enormous dimensions they will attain whon modelled ? from the Prussian pattern ; and thero is .reason to suppose they aro now suffering from- the .effects inseparable from a change "of System. But Russia it seems certain can jairay ott the Pruth ...
The Passage of the Danube at Reni. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Star — 2 June 1877
Thc Passage of thc Danube at Rcni. A. MILITARY correspondent of the ' Brisbane Courier,' who is apparently acquainted from personal observation with the strategic points of tho Danube and tho Turkish provinces, (and - whose writings wo have occasionally extracted) refers to the operations at Beni in the following terms : From the meagre information to hand it may reasonably bo supposed that the engagement/ reported at Beni was unim portant, and was probably a skirmish between a corps of observation and the Turkish garrison troops. Latest mail advices report the retirement of most of the Turkish troops from the Dobrudscha, but it is possible that since the outbreak of the war' reinforcements may have been sent there. The naval supremacy of the Porte in this war will probably cause many of tho tatics of previous wars to be reversed, and as possession of this district would enable Turkey ? to harass the left flank of the Russians, it is not improbable that the latter will seek to occup...
