Ladies' Column. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 8 July 1872

laWeflP Column* CHILDREN.- "I like children," he said to me, one day at the table - "I like 'em, and I respect 'em. Pretty much all the honest truth-telling there is in the world is done by them. Do you know they play the part in the household which the king's jester, who very often had a mighty long head under his cap and bells, used to play for a monarch ? There's no radical club like a nest of little folks in a nursery. Did you ever watch a baby's fin- gers ? I have, often enough, though I never knew what it was to own one." The Master paused half a minute or so-sighed, perhaps at thinking what he had missed in life looked up at me a little vacantly. I saw what was the matter ; he had lost the thread of his talk. "Baby's fingers," I in tercolated. " Yes, yes ; did you ever see how they will poke those wonderful little fingers of theirs into every fold, and crack, and crevice they can get at ? That is their first education, feeling their way into the 3olid facts of the material wo...

Australian Aatural Distorp. THE CASSOWARY. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 8 July 1872

ausftealíati Raturai Sístoii>. THE CASSOWARY. THIS bird is next in size to the Emu, and the first specimen was obtained by Mr. Thomas Wall, naturalist of the expedition com- manded by Mr. Kennedy. This was shot near Cape York, in one of those almost inac- cessible gullies which abound in that part of the Australian continent. The cassowary stands, when erect, between four and five feet high ; the head is without feathers, but covered with a blue skin, and, like the emu, it is almost without wings, having mere rudi- ments. 0 The body is thickly covered with strong, dark brown, wiry feathers ; on the head is a large protuberance of a bright red colour, and to the neck are attached, like bells, six or eight round fleshy balls of " bright blue and scarlet, which give to the bird a very beautiful appearance. This first, and, indeed, only specimen of the Austra- lian cassowary, was unfortunately left at Weymouth Bay, and was never afterwards recovered. Mr. Wall being anxious for its pr...

Scientific [?]ottings. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 8 July 1872

Açientfffc Jotting . ORIGIN OF AMBER.-Professor Zaddach ? snows that the trees which yielded the amber must have grown upon the greensand beds of the Cretaceous period, flourishing luxuriously on the marshy coast which then surrounded the great continent of Northern Europe. . Probably, says Hardioicke's Science Gossip, the temperature was thea much higher than it is now ; and this, even at that epoch, ex- tended to the now frost-bound Arctic regions, a fact which has been proved by the remark- able plant remains of temperate clime3 which have been recently discovered there. The amber flora of the Baltic area under review contains northern forms associated with plants of more temperate zones ; and thus camphor trees (Cinnamomum) occur with willows, birches, beech, aud numerous oaks. A species of Thuja, very similar to the American Thuja occidentals, is the most abundant tree amongst the conifers ; next in abundauce Widdringtonia, a great variety of pines and firs, including the amber...

The Month. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 8 July 1872

THE date of our present issue reminds us that we have just completed the first half of 1872 ; and we may there- fore, pertinently, remark that, if the six months now before us be attended by anything like the social and commercial prosperity which has waited upon their predecessors, we shall have to record in Janitary next -the departure of a year without parallel in colonial history. But this is not news. "Without doubt, the chief occurrence of the past four weeks, has been the establishment of telegraphic com- munication with the old country. This grand event was in the first place heralded about a fortnight ago by telegrams from the South Australian Government, an- I nouncing to our authorities that they were prepared to 1 receive, and transmit forthwith, telegrams for the United Kingdom, «fcc, and stating that, as a horsè-express would have to carry the messages between the northern and southern ends of the yet unconnected wires, the time occupied by transmission to London would...

QUARTZ-CRUSHING MACHINERY, MANUFACTURED BY P. N. RUSSELL & CO. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 8 July 1872

QUARTZ - CRUSHING MACHINERY, MANUFACTURED BY P. N. RUS- SELL & CO. THE primitive style of working a gold-field has pretty well fallen into disuse, and Quartz crushing-by means of the most elaborate machinery--and Sluicing conducted on a gigantic scale-have thrown the old pick, spade, and cradle business completely into the shade. ; People dwelling at a distance from the reefing community-in cities far remote from the sound of the "stampers"-can hardly form an idea of* what a genuine quartz crushing machine is like ; and no better illustration could be afforded to such minds than the powerful battery erected for Messrs. j Pullen and Rawsthorne, in Clarke-street, Hill End. It was manufactured by Messrs. P. N. Russell and Co., of this city, and reflects considerable credit-not only on the engineer- ing ability displayed in its construction-but also on the resources of the establishment generally. The following particulars will afford a general idea of its proportions and capabi...

PORT PHILLIP YACHT CLUB. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 8 July 1872

PORT PHILLIP YACHT CLUB. The opening eruise of the Port Phillip Yacht Club took place in Hobson's Bay on Her Majesty's Birthday, and our en- graving represents the fleet on Its re- turn. Fourteen boats joined in the oruise, including Major Heath's Haidee, and Mr. Timm's Henrietta, both of Geelong ; and the Lurline, The Secret, and The Mystery, of Melbourne. Captain Coffey, commodore, and Mr. Turnbull, captain of the elub, were in charge, and the little fleet started on its voyage about twelve o'clock. Sail was made round the lightship, a dlstanoe of five miles, when the cruisers neat up In the direction of Brighton, and reaohed the beaoh about four in the afternoon, the Esplanade at the time being orowded with spectators. During the oruise an unpleasant accident happened to Mr. Turnbull, who was In charge of The Queen. The topmast of the oraft was carried away, and in endeavoring to recover it, Mr. Turnbull fell overboard, and received a good soaking, but no injury beyond that There...

MELBOURNE BEGGARS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 8 July 1872

MELBOURNE BEGGARS. It has been Baid that Victoria is a colony not only roomy enough for all who come to it, but sufficient in its resources and its d< . mand for labor as to guarantee to all who work, sufficient recompense for their toil. But while we as a community are free from the great destitution which pre- vails in older lands, still we are not without the race of professional beg- gars, and in no place in the colony do they flourish so well as in the metropolis. It is a profitable occupation, giving to those who follow it a far better income than falls to the lot of many tradesmen. It is carried on without expense in the shape of rent or stock, no taxgatherer annoys with his impor* t mity, no law interferes in the shape of a man in blue, and the beggar thrives and flourishes in our midst, and bid s fair to be come an institution. In this number we give a sketch of the blind portion of this com- munity, a fair sample of his tribe. Morning after morning they may be s...

POULTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 8 July 1872

POULTRY. Few, perhaps, have ever taken the trouble to estimate their worth and value, which, individually so small, is collectively so great. Then they are the best of scaven- gers, grub and insect destroyers ; the farmer's waste con- sumers, and the housewife's save-all and comfort pro- ducers. A household is lost without them in any situation. Again, they afford amusement, yield profit, and bestow numerous domestic table pleasures. So let us estimate the money value they represent-these supposed mite asso- ciates of agriculture. Allowing two eggs weekly to each child and adult, for cooking, puddings, pies, confection- ery, &c, including breakage and loss by spoiling-and it will be found below the true consumption-will require for a population of 504,000 inhabitants 1,008,000 per week, or 52,416,000 a year, which, valued at sixpence a dozen (they are now ls. 6d.), are worth £109,200 per annum. Dispute it who can ! Four shillings and four pence a year per head for the popula...

RICH CLAIMS, HAWKINS' HILL. IN our present issue,, we give au illustration of some of tlie rich claims, situate on Haw- kins' Hill proper.

Arridents and Cmergenries. ACCIDENTS BY FIRE.—(Concluded.) [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 8 July 1872

gmtonts anîr (Bmttfpntít*. ACCIDENTS BY FIRE. -( Concluded. ) PRECAUTIONS IN THE USE OF GAS.-"Among the causes of tire," observes Mr. W. Baddeley, the eminent engineer, in his "Report of London Fires," "the great number of acci- dents arising from the use of gas is very remarkable, and is a standing disgrace to the science of the age. And not only have these accidents been numerous, but in many cases serious, and in some fatal. A large propor- tion of these accidents have arisen from the hydraulic joints of gaseliers, and it is greatly to be desired that some efficient substitute for this simple and beautiful contrivance could be hit upon ; for, so long as water will evaporate, and people will forget to replenish, mischief will continually arise ; and when gas and atmospheric air combine in due proportions, an explosive compound is produced of the most destructive character." Gas-burners are also Dangerous when placed near a Ceiling.-A. remarkable instance of this took place lately,...
