THE PLANTS OF VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian — 3 December 1864

THE PLANTS OF VICTORIA. We are gradually collecting B reipootoblo literature descriptive or tlie vegetable kingdom of Australia, and in time may expect aystem atie aocounta of all the known epecios of planta inhabiting each country of the continental island. Meantime, as a guide to botanical in qui! ere, and perhaps as an incentive to a more extended observation of our native plants, we purpose from time to time to give, arranged under the natural system, annotated lists of the Victorian species. Any description at tempted n il! be generic, as this catalogue is chiefly designed as an index to assist inquirers to scientific sources of information. The notes on species will, for the most put, only indicate the character of the locality they in habit, unless some striking character Or quality should cull for special notice. In ad dition to the scattered papers and notices in the transactions and the scientiflo periodicals conducted by Hooker, Curtis, Lindley, Pax ton, Ac., the followin...

THE SUPPLY OF WATER IN THE BASIN OF THE MURRAY. (Continued from The Autralasian, Nov. 12.) [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian — 3 December 1864

THE SUPPLY OF WATER IN THE BASIN OF THE MURRAY. (Continued from The Autrataeiam, Not. 12.) When, however, the river ia near!/ full, the surface of the water approaohei to a uniform dope, and then the form of the country may be judged of from the current and depth, bat the depth must be taken at the shallow, not in the deep hollows, and also a part of the rirer should be choeen where its oourse is nearly straight for some distance, that ia, for two or three hundred yards. The amount of evapo ration in this tract is also a point to be considered. In that part of the Delta through which the Avoea and Wimmera flow, it was stated by intelligent observers to be about throe and a half feet between the con clusion of the rains in one year and their com mencement in the following season, and by actual measurement of a waterhole the surface of the water at the end of the dry season was found , to be three feet fire inches below the outlet. Farther north—that is, in the heart of the Delta—no d...

ENTERTAINMENTS. THE THEATRE ROYAL. MR. JEFFERSON. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian — 3 December 1864

ENTERTAINMENTS. THE THEATRE ROYAL. MB. JEFFEBSON. Mr. Jeflerson closed bit engagement atthia theatre on Monday nraimg, when he played Gates in " Money," to Mr. SnUhmn's Arthur EtcIjb. The combination of talent pared extremely interesting, and the warm appre ciation of a crowded house mwirded theox ertwni, not only of Mr. Jefferson and Mr. Sulliran, but of the whole company, for the play was excellently cast, extremely well mounted, and exceedingly well played. It ia not our intention to criticise the performance of the evening, but we oannot allow the oppor tunity to pan without paying the manage ment of the Boyal a deserved compliment for the liberality and taste which haa marked the manner in which all the pieeee brought oat during Mr. Jeflbnon's engagement June been pieced upon the stage.

OUR DRAUGHT HORSE STOCK. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian — 3 December 1864

OUR DRAUGHT HORSE STOCK. It is becoming a rather common re mark at all the principal shows here, that the colts and allies of the heavy breeds are scarcely so good as was to have ex pected, after the spirited importation of | so many fine horses and mares irom Great Britain and the neighbouring colonies, at so large an outlay in money. The young stock is generally good at these shows, but that is all. It seems somehow to be considered that the young animals now coming forward should be not only good, but that they should be better than their sires and dams, though why such an expectation should have been entertained is not Tcry clear. The climate of Australia appears to be decidedly calculated to improve sheep, and is eminently adapted for the breeding of light horses, hut there is no reason to suppose that it is so suitable for heavy horses as to cause any improvement in these, either in regard to the 6ize or form of the high-priced animals brought from the old country, where they ...

THE YEOMAN'S PAGE. DR. CAMPBELL ON FLAX. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian — 3 December 1864

THE YEOMAN'S PAGE. DR. CAMPBELL ON FLAX* In every very new country settled by men with very old ideas, the first im prover is pretty sure to bo a booisI martyr. If he have perseverance, capital, and luck he may die a millionaire, but meantime, so far as contempt and ridicule can scorch, he may perfectly rely upon a probation of annoyances. Macarthur tor many a long year was regarded as a lunatic, because he thought Australia Plight come to export wool; and it took just six and twenty years to induce the Tasnianians, after eating the mutton, not to throw away the fleece. Vie have be come considerably more go-ahead since then; but be would be a bold man still who 'should proclaim at an Australian farmers' meeting, that it is bet ter to grow flax one year in nine than wheat nine rears running. Dr. Campbell, however, being apparently endowed with over tho average of self-reliance, has not been held back from the advocacy of a great improvement by the fear of being, called a fool by fool...

THE AUSTRALIAN PASTORAL INVESTMENT COMPANY. TO THE EDITOR OF THE AUSTRALASIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian — 3 December 1864

THE AUSTRALIAN" TASTORAL INVESTMENT COMPANY. TO THE EDITOR OF THE AUSTRALASIAN. Sir,—I know a great deal of latitude is allowed to projectors of companies with refer ence to calculations, bnt think the above named has drawn the long bow rather too much, and with your kind permission, Sir, I fancy I shall be able to prove the truth of my asset t ion. I find by the Appendix A, in the pro spectus, that out of 200,573 sheep there are virtually 58,970 lambs and 19,700 old sheep making together 58,670 sheep, or more than a fourth of the whole, which, with stations given in, could not be valued at more than 12s. a head, or £35,202, leaving the re mainder of the sheep, viz., 141,903, to repre sent a valne of £215,514, or at the rate of say £110s. 4|d. a head. Again, 7,000 cattle are valued at £5 a bead, £3 being, in my opinion, tbeir utmost value; for if the increase of cattle is expected to he 2,000 the first year, we may suppose there is that number of young atock ouv tyf the 7,000, which...

LITERATURE. The Orpheus C. Kerr Papers. Second Series. New York: Carleton. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian — 3 December 1864

LITERATURE. The Qrpheut C. Kerr Papers. Second Series. New York: Carleton. Tbs second of the series of these amusiug pre- i lections on the transactions and the philosophy of the American civil tvar arc characterised by the same sharp observation and sarcastic humour which we noted in the first issue from Mr. Orpheus Kerr's pen. The series embraces war or warlike events from the 6th of July, 1862, to the 15th of November in the same year, a period brief in duration, but ample enough ill its materials for the satirist. In the course of the volume, Mr. Kerr treats us to a good 1 deal of verse, including eome fair imitations of English poets and poetasters, and aome pleasant little narratirca of the fiction class here and there episodically introduced, serve as antidotes to the dreariness of systematic jesting. The best illustration will be a few random extracts from this volume LEGISLATIVE STRATEGY. "Legislative strategy is a very good thiug to bewilder the rebels, my boy ; and if it ...

CORRESPONDENCE. IN-BREEDING AND MR MACKNIGHT. TO THE ED1TOE OV THE niwpm«i» Sir,—In a long letter Mr. Mabkrright has endeavoured, not only to combat the assertions of your leader in your first issue, but to proTe the value of his principles of in-breed isg, as well as to fix upon the Australian merino in his possession as being the only pure Spanish merino, consequently, the best in his estimation now in Viotoria. Mr. Mac knight inadvertantly admits even his own ides of what should fix tbe value of the sheep as to purity of breed—that is, the market prioe of the wool when told—to hare been surpassed by the Messrs. Learmonth, thus showing that Mr. Maclmigbt's theory is not altogether a safe one, considering tbe number of years these toyal.bloods bare been in the colony, this giving them ample time to gain a name and character, which they have not of itself, suffi cient to carry the balance of evidence againet them.
