The Defence Commission and Our Fortifications. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Star — 2 June 1877

The Defence Commission and Our Fortifications. IT is understood that Sir "William Jervois Colonel Scratchley, after a careful examin ation of our fortifications, condemn two of the eighteen-ton gun pits, on account of their isolated position, their want of protection to the gunners, and unsuitability except for operations in one particular quarter. The other fortifications are held to be well situated, needing but a few alterations and better armament to make them equal to all requirements. , It is understood further that commission see urgent need for an increase in the garrison artillery, and will recommend the formation of four additional batteries to 'ensure the effectual working of the guns. It is not improbable that Small gun boats .«nil be recommended for coastal service. Sir William Jervois and Colonol Richardson visited Botany yesterday, to determine tho nature of the defence 'that should be con structed thero, Colonel Scratchley was unable to go to Botany.

Blue Glass [Newspaper Article] — Northern Star — 2 June 1877

fciiic Gloss. THERE is much (observes an American paper) that is strange in the blue-glass theory -for instance, the conjunctiou of opposite electricities, the expansion bf the molecules of the glass, and the generation of currents of electro-magnetism» Another ' strange thing j is the occult relation existing bet-ween the number of miracles -wrought and the business enterprise of the glass-dealers. The remedial action depends quite as much upon the number of squares taken by the vitreous ad vertisers in the local papers as upon the number or size of the panes. In Providence blue-glass is working well. A bookkeeper who bad been tortured with rheumatism for several years inserted six panes of blue glass in his office windows, exposed his foot, arm, and shoulder to the light, and within forty eight hours was cured. An elderly lady, whose left knee, ankle, and foot were s'Woolen to twice their natural size, bathed in blue light, and in three-quarters of an hour 'the soreness and inflam...

News of the War. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Star — 2 June 1877

News of thc War. IT has doubtless occasioned general surprise that the Government should have received no information from the Imperial authorities concerning the state of affairs in Europe ; and it must be concluded that the colonies were either looked . upon as in a position of safety, being so far i-emoved from scene of the great struggle now going on'm "Europe, or else there was great hesitancy on the part of the Home Government to communicate any information which might possibly be taken ns indicative of their opinion or view of affairs. ' This state.of things, as may be seen from our Melbourne telegram; will not henceforth continue, as the Victorian Agent General has arranged with the other Agents General for a weekly message conveying the latest war news. This of course will be immediately communicated to the Press on its receipt here, and the general public will thus from time to time be much better informed of the actual events of the war.

An English army would spring up out of the very ground if one were Avantod to-morrow. There is no need of conscription ; nor is there any necessity for officers to wear golden epauletts, parado tho streets on prancing chargers, or be recipients of crosses of honour. Soldiers can wear a beard, whiskers, or a moustache, whiskers or moustache alone, without in curring tho censure of theDuko of Cambridge, Commander-in-Chief.

A New Plant for Cattle Feeding. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Star — 2 June 1877

J A New Plant for Cattle Feeding* UNDER tlie above title some attention has recently been directed to a boraginaceous plant-a close ally to our common comfrey for extensive cultivation as a fodder plant. It is known as the Caucasian prickly comf rey, and is the Symjihyium asperriinUm of botan ists. Though the plant is spoken of as a novelty for cattle feeding1, its adaptability for such has been known for some years, and an analysis has been made by Professor Voelcher, It was introduced to the country, from the Caucasus " at the early part oí the present century, more as an ornamental plant, on account Of its bold foliage and light blue flowers, than for any useful purpose. The recommendation of agriculturists some few years since to grow it extensively as a green fodder plant was not at the time followed up, and now that the plant has come before the agriculturist again, and that crowns and root cuttings suitable for planting are actually advertised at £5 per 1,1)00, it is to bo ho...
