Tho usual autumn rains tills year have been already very much protracted, and present appearances aro very much in favour of a continuance of showery woathor. Thoso gardeners who had boon profitably omployod in preparing their ground shonld now sow liberally of cabbages and cauliflowers. The ?weather Is now very sultnblo for a full sowing of onions, and although many of tho plants may run to seed, a good bulb can bo procured by pinching off tho bond and leaving a stem of good length. Turnips, lettuces, and spinach may bo sown to advantage, and fortnightly plots of raddish should bo made to procuro a regular succession.

The Betting Market. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 19 March 1870

The Betting Market. IP consolation of any sort may be offered to a person in misfortune, Mr. Hurtle.Fisher has received it, in tho strong publio sympathy expressed for him at his losing so valuable a horso as Charon, the winner of our last blue riband." Charon had been first favourite for along time, and was backed for a large amount of money on the double-the Leger and Gold Cup ; ho had not been backed for the Leger right out for much money. Now that he is out of tho race the publio have been getting on to the next good things in this double, as fast as possible ; so that Moselle and Tim, and Moselle and Moselle, Lamplighter and Tim, and Lamplighter and Lamplighter have been backed for large sums. Moselle and Lamps run very close in public favour, and although the filly has slightly the call at present, the colt will bejevel, if not in advance of her, when he arrives from Melbourne. Although Barbarian is quoted as third favourite in the betting, he is not backed by tho publio. No d...

SOFALA. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 19 March 1870

SOFALA. Tho past wook has been miserably dull, wot and cold, nuiking it very uncomfortable for thoso whoso chief occupa tion is dinting or other out-door work ; but as a counterpoise to this, winter feed for all kinds of stock will bo abundant, Hour cheap, and potatoes plentiful ; while tho tillers of tho soil can at ouco sot about cropping their land. I regret X cannot roport so favourably of Messrs. "Williams's and Westphul's roof aa I could havo wished, owing to a superabundance of water impeding their opera tions. Tho vein is said to bo good, and averages from ten inches to a foot. Tho reef ls easily worked and payable ; tho great drawback being want of machinery to koop tho shaft dry. Tho trial crushing, to which I alluded on a former occasion, went over five 02s. to tho ton. This, I should think, ought to bo suiUcient inducement to speculators with means, to ombark In these roofs (thoro aro several), aud which, 1 havo no doubt would nivo, under proper management, a handsome di...

KIAMA. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 19 March 1870

KIAMA. Permit mo to lay beforo the public tho state of our harbour works. In Sydney, I believe, very little is known of the con dition in which our breakwater remains, and I will therefore endeavour to tho bc3t of my ability to give a truo statement of tlio works. At present thc works aro idle, and as a natural consequence a great deal of damage is being done. Tho excavated basin is full of water, which luis been lot in, and oveiy storm carries away a largo amount of stones, &c., of which tho various embankments aro composed. The harbour has become shallow ia several places from this cause, and ovory succoodlng storm adds to tho work of destruction. Now, tho question naturally suggests itself-who is to blame for this stato of affairs ? It is well known wo havo a represen tative iii Parliament, and at the same time I don't mean to, say itis his fault, but I merely ask has ho over brought tho matter of the 'Kiama broakwator under tho consideration of tho Bouse? It is truly dop...

Wo wero then complaining of excessivo heat, tho drying up of our water sources, and a prospect of failure in most of tho corn crops around us; but with tho new moon came biting cold winds, hoavy, cloudy weather, and an abundant down pour of rain, causing our river to rise bank high, and all tho creoles around us to coih menco running, so that now there fs every prospect of plenty of grass and water for every purpose throughout tho district for tho winter. ? . .,--,!

SHOALHAVEN. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 19 March 1870

SHOALHAVEN. Our district has been visited by heavy showery weather for some days past, within tho last two daya tho weather assumed a very serious appearance, thero being every indication of a set in of heavy rain, However, our fears wore illusory. "Wo havo however received quito a sufficient supply of tho watery fluid ; moro than is agreeable, or, I think, benoflcinl to our maizo crops. Tho creoles wore (Illing fast and the river com mencing to swell, when happily the weather changed, and everything has a most luxuriant appearance. In addition to what tho maize crop will suffer from tho late incessant rain, I hear that tho aphis has destroyed patches of tho crop, but that tho heavy showers havo completely oblite rated tho pest from the stem. Tho new postal brauch vin Moss Vale, during all tho wet weather, fulfilled thc duties in and out with strict regularity; whilst there have been two or three stoppages on tho old routo via Kiama.

The Horse Question. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 19 March 1870

The Horse Question. SINCE .my kat lotter, I havo soon tho counter petition from Mr. Campholl, and othor Southern settlers, opposed to Mr. Rossi's scheme for levying a tax on mares. Tho now idea is to tax tho ontires; and between tho two thero is little onoitgh to choose. Both, in nry estimation, have many faults ; and I can see nothing to recommond them, cither on the score of policy, justico, or necessity. The pluns appear impossible of being carried out; and let there be ever I so much expediency attached to them, if they are j not possible, what matters tho othor ? Nb doubt some ¡ nionoy could bo collected ovory year ; but after the introduction of most expensive machinery for ita collection, two things would come about. First, the animals sought to be taxed would go scot freo ; and socondly, tho money that was got togother would be all swallowed up by tho costs of collection. Those mythical rowards of a thousand a pieco, proposed to be givon for racing and other nsoful horses wo...

The New Cattle Yards. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 19 March 1870

The New Cattle Yards. So far as wo aro aware, tho Municipal Council have not yet decided on the site for tho now cattle market, and, without venturing to dictate to them on tho subject, it will certainly not bo out of placo if wo point out a few matters which must ariso at somo timo after tho yards aro built, it may bo sooner, or it may bo later. There- are sundry and divors considerations which shouldjnfluenco tho municipal authorities in their choice ; apart from the actual advantages which appear, at a prima facie glanco, to bolong to any par ticular spot at tho present moment. Future require ments havo to bo considored ; and it will never do to place tho cattle market at a spot which, although in evory way suitablo to-day, may become so surrounded by population as to bo quito useless for the purpose fivo years hence. Tho very samo reasons which cause tho closing of ceme teries that aro too near the town will operate in like manner against cattle salo yards and abattoirs. None of...

Sensational Science. A iircrii/Y spiced scientific article is at present going thc rounds of tho papers ; it is headed " Something Coming," and will bo extremely pernicious in its effects on weak minds unloss its absurdity is exposed. Thc article states that a column of magnetic light is shoot ing out further and further from the sun ; that it has already roached a distanco of forty-five millions of milos from tho sun, and that by next summer wo may expect it to reach tho earth," when it is oxpected that it will gobblo up tho earth very much in tho stylo that tho devilfish gobbled up Sieur Clubin. Another novel and interesting fact mentioned is that "the sun's atmosphere is iu a highly excited condition."
