Weight of maize, &c. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 15 April 1887

Weight of Maize, Ac. Tub following weights of - a few cobs of maize, showing how great a return per acre is possible if only every stalk matured a cab, are for warded to the Queensiandeb, by Mr. James Henderson, Tambourine : — A black maize (found among the self-husking ?variety lately introduced by him) had two ears .V. cobs. The solf-hUskirig. mai£e,: two ears on stalk, gave Soz. without the cob. The Amer icanvariety, Queen of the Prairies, imported by Government, two ears on a stalk gave a yieldjof 12o- without the cob. Therefore the black maize which is planted 8ft. by lft,. would grow :14,'620 stalks per acre ; the self-husking maize planted the same, distance apart would yield 129 bushels per acre; the. Queen of the Prairies planted 4ft by 1ft would 'grow 10,890 stalks per. acre, yielding 146 buBhelfl. So inuoli for theory as' showing what, is actually possible.

The Great Eastern. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 15 April 1887

The Oreat Eastern. The Great Eastern has again changed owners, and it is probable that before long she will. drop anchor in Australian ports. Our London correspondent, writing on February 18, remarks : — It appears that the Great Eastern, the famous leviathan of the deep, is to go out to Australia, xms vessel nas enaugea nanus a great many times, and none of her numerous owners have been able to find any use for her except as a show vessel, in which capacity she has lately been figuring at Liverpool and Dublin. But, of course,, people will not go on paying to see a floating villago for long, so that some other use has had to be found for her. The success which attended her career as a phow vessel, however, has improved her value, for while she was sold some time ago at £16,00, lier new owner has had to pay £26,000 for her. The purchaser of the Great Eastern is said to be Mr. Thomas Brown, of London, an agent of the London and Australian Steamship Co. It is said that she is to be fit...

Preserving Timber from White Ants. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 15 April 1887

Preserving Timber from White Ants. Scarcely anyone, even of the most imperfectly practical education or exper ience in Australia but must be aware of the terrible and destructive assaults of the white ant on the soft woods of tlie country, and even on the sapwood of the harder timber, and the sample and inex pensive preservative preparation given below by a writer in the Field is well worthy of trial. The writer says : — I have for many years been in the habit of preparing; home-grown timber of the inferior sorts of fir — Scotch, spruce, and silver — by steeping it in a tank (that is, a hole dug in clay or peat, which was fairly watertight) in a saturated solution of lime. Its effect on the sapwood is to so harden it and fill the pores that it perfectly resists the attacks of the little wood-boring beetle, and makes it, in fact equally as durable as the made wood.' I have a mill which was lofted with Scotch fir prepared in this way in 1850, and it is in perfect preservation. The tim...

Unknown Gold Formations. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 15 April 1887

Unknown Mold Formations. The Rev. J. E. Tennison-Wooda, in a j long article written for the S. M. Herald on the north-western portions of the Australian continent, makes the follow ing novel and interesting remarks on the possible matrices of gold. He says:— i.ue wnoie or tue ancient or base ment rocks of this portion of Aus tralia, if riot of all the continent, is permeated with all minerals— gold, silver, tin, copper, lead, and other precious metalb abound in it. What has been discovered bears, I am convinced, but a small proportion to what still exists untouched and unknown. Now, of late years there has been' a growing conviction in my mind that the mineral products of our mining operations aro destined to be immensely increased in future times. This may seem a bold anticipation in view of the fact that for many years past the yield of gold has been steadily decreasing, though the decrease is small, and becomes less and less as time goes on. My reasons for thinking that mineral ....

Intense dissatisfaction has been manifested at the protracting of tho debate ; and it became plain that tho discussion would expire from sheer inanity or disgust, unless some means by the obstructivo party for keeping it alive.
