To the Editor of the Record. [Newspaper Article] — Burra Record — 9 August 1878

To the Editor of the Record. SIR— In the last issue of the Record there is a report of an Inquest concerning tbe death of Sarah Ann Fogarty touching which with your permission I have a few observations to make. It was stated in evidence that I sanctioned Mrs. Fogarty's removal to Redruth, this is not quite the fact. I said on Tuesday, July 16 that towards the end of the week she ?ugh* after being out a little be able to stand the journey ; afterwards I learned that she was removed next day, However this is of no importance as nothing can be more certain than that the journey was in no way connected with the unfortunate result seeing that nearly a fortnight intervened. With regard to Mr. Dashwood's evidence perhaps the less said the better but I cannot refrain from informing that gentleman that Mrs. Fogarty did suffer from typhoid fever and from inflammation of the lung and that there are no symptoms remaining after convalescence from these diseases — lastly if as he imagined the dec...

The Land Bill. [Newspaper Article] — Burra Record — 9 August 1878

The Land Bill. It is some years now, since in com pliance with the demand of that impor tant promoter of the prosperity of the State, the asricultnralist : and in ac cordance with the true policy for a new country having a large aiea of- open lands that if cultivated would yield abundant return of golden produce, the Government sought to establish a free hold yeomanry, who should be able, upon the easiest terms, Jto take posses sion of the soil, and make it smile with harvest. Previously to this time the Governainent had sold the land by auction to any buyer who choose to bid for it, and these purchasers were generally speculators who sold again to the intending cultivator, at greatly enhanced prices so ; that while the Government did not get any high sums for the land, the farmer had to pay to the hand shark such a profit that he was cramped by it, and his energies limited for a number of years. Hence resulted the area system, free selection before survey, limited auction, and vari...

Reminscences of Early Colonial life. Story of s rum keg. Your readers need not be alarmed iest I should inflict an analytics, essay on the contents of a rum barrel. Having had & elimase or two into the sedimentary deposit of barrels which did long service for the public, I am content to let the matter rest, fearing lest details ehonld bring about dis agreeable sensations. The keg of our story — a stout fire gallon — came bran new out of a wine and spirit store ia the sleepy little city of Geelong. In the month of November, I34S, a team of tough, looking bullocks, attached to a lumbering and osavily laden dray, stood patiently in the neighbourhood cf the said store waiting the pleasure of their equally tough driver.

European News of the Week. [Newspaper Article] — Burra Record — 9 August 1878

European News of the Week. The Treaty of Berlin was ratified on Satur day, the ratification having been delayed a few days only instead- of two -or three months as originally intended. Turkey appears to be the OU y £uwer wuicu uujwui w i-uo uouooiyus ui Congress, and Turkey has wisdom enough to submit to the decree of bee more powerful neighbours. In Parliament and outside the members of the Government, and their supporters are ex presssing themselves as highly satisfied with with the result of the negotiations, and Lord Beaconsfield in an after dinner-speech expressed confidence in the permanence of the peace, and a hope that the Eastern Question had- been finally dosed. Lord Hartington was defeated in tbe House of Commons on his motion censuring the Government for diaregirding the claims of Greece arid for pledging England to defend Turkey. The speech was very long, many members speaking on each side, but the result of tbo discussion must hare been highly gratifying to the Premier...

Adirondack Trout. THE WONDERFUL PERFORMANCE OF ONE WHICH A LITERARY MAN CAUGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Burra Record — 16 August 1878

Adirondack Trout. THE WONDERFUL PERFOMAMCE OF ONE WHICH A LITERARY MAN CAUGHT. Mr. Charles Dudley Warner thus relates in the Atlantic Monthly y how he caught an Adirondack trout:— r- At the very first cast I saw thtt the hour bad come. Three trout leaped into the air. The danger of this manoeuver all fisherman understand ; it is one of the commonest in the woods three heavy trout taking hold at once, rushing in different directions, smash the tackle in flinders. I evaded this catch, and threw again, I recall the moment. A hermit thrush on the tip of a balsam uttered his long, liquid evening note1 Happening to look over my shoulder, I saw the peak of Marcy gleam rosy in the sky (I can't help it that Marcy is fifty miles off, and cannot be seen from this region; these incidental touches are always used). The hundred feet ot si.k swished th ough the air, and the tail fly fell as lightly on the water as a three-cent piece f which no slaming will giva the we'gafc cf a ten,) drops upon th...

A New Rock Drill. [Newspaper Article] — Burra Record — 16 August 1878

A New Bock Drill. The vast undeveloped min eral wealth of many portions of our colonial empire, and the general scarcity of manual labor in those parts, renders the description of new mining or quarrying machinary pecu liarly interestingand important. Although many new and in genious machines for . boring blast holes have been intro duced of late years, these have from various causes been little applicable for mining operations which have still to be carried on by manual labour. A machine has, however, been partly invented by Mr. J. B. Jordan, which promises to be a success, and has been tested at the engineering works of Messr Glover and Hobson, St. James' Road, New Kent Road, with very satisfactory results. It is a hand-power drill, and con sists of a small cylinder in which a piston works, which is connected with the drill below and mechanism above. The average of working is from 70 to 90 revolutions per minute, which causes the machine to deliver from 140 to 180 blows per minute...
