CHOICE OF POTATOES FOR SEED. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 24 October 1845
CHOICE OF POTATOES FOU SV.T.D. ?' Unripened, and consequently watery potatoes, make ilia best seed roots ; inas- much as tliuy always produce strong, healthy, vigorous plants, this watery matter being tho germinative principle. Potatoes which have been planted ¡ale in the sanson, therefore, or dug early in thc season or which have grown ia boggy land or in a mountain situation are lo be preferred ; as under such circumstance* the tubers aro not matured, tho farina has not boen developed. On the other hand, if we use for seed root9 those potatoes which have grown in good land, hava fully ripened there, and have attained all tho perfection of which they are capable as to quality, «hounding in farinaceous matter, but deficient in muci- laginous matter, many of the plants produced from such plants will be curled and unheal- thy ; a general want of vigour will bo evident, and the produce will be very infe- rior to that from unripened tubers, as they only possess the procreative power in ...
RURAL ECONOMY. MR. NUTT'S IMPROVED SYSTEM OF BEE MANAGEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 24 October 1845
RURAL ECONOMY. jin. NUTT'S iMi'itovnij SYSTEM OF IIEU MANACCMEXT. Ma. NUTT, a practical apiarian nf Lincoln- shire, has devised thc following system, which is highly spoken uf by most writers on the management of bees. The first part ol' his plan nf operation is to leave the hive into which tho stock is in- troduced untouched : when it ii filled with honey (the contents of which aro reserved for the uso nf .tho bees), tho capacity of tho hive is increased by tho addition of another box to tim bide, communicating' with thu hive by apertures, which ¡rive freu admission to the bees in all paris of the box Tho next important object in Mr. Nun's system is to cosuru a regulated and uniform température in this additional portion of tim hive, without diminishing- the temperature of that which contains the stock. The ventila- tion necessary for this purptiso is effected by moans of a perforated tin tube, extending down toa considerable distance from thc top into the hive, and connected with ...

CROWN PRISONERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 24 October 1845
CHOWN PRISONERS. His Honor, Mr. Justice Montagu, yester- day, expressed himself in his usual intelli- gent and straightforward mnnner, relative to the expense incurred by thc trial of con- victs in thc Supreme Court. Thc learned Judge observed, in reference to thc case of four men, who had just been convicted of robbing a man's house at Bagdnd, (having absconded from a rondgnng), ofsomc trifling articles, that lie was at a loss to understand why such persons were not dealt with sum- marily by thc Magistrates, and punished on the spot ; hero were four men, each of whom was already transported for periods varying from seven to ten years, brought before the Supreme Court, nt n great ex- pense to the colony. Had they been taken before two Magistrates, and been ordered SO lashes euch, and sent back to their work, n great expense would have been saved, nod the course pursued would l*nve been better for the men as well ns thc public. Now, his Honor had no alternative, but to impose another...

" THE OBSERVER. HO HART TOWN, FRIDAY, OCT. 21. THE GOVERNOR'S ADDRESS. THE Aildress of Sir Eardley "Wilmot to the Legislative Council on Tuesday, was not what we looked for. If, on the meeting of that body after a mere adjournment, though a prolonged one, wc could have felt fissured of any formal address from thc head of thc Government, wc should certainly have anti- cipated ono in which some nllusion was innde to the great question in this colony, that which more than any other public question in the light of a grievance enga- ges the popular mind, that question on which his Excellency has professed himself to ngrce with the general sentiment, the question-lastly, and chiefly to thc present point-on which he ailiruied when he ad- journed the Council, that he looked for a despatch from the Sccrclnry of State, and to allow time for his receipt of which he fixed the period of two months for thc suspen- sion of thc Council's proceedings.

Hy many more, who tin not go quite so far, we find thc mure pernicious patts of thc lloniish sys- tem eagerly insisted upon-for example, clerical eclibney, monastic institutions, mid the practice of a paltry asceticism.* A still greater number arc-busy in introducing superstitions innovations into public wor- ship, which fully proclaim thc Artnanist tendency of the system.
