NEW STAMP AND QUARTZ CRUSHER. [Newspaper Article] — Evening News — 19 January 1870
NEW STAMP AND QUARTZ CRUSHER. A desideratum long wanted in New South j Wales purports to be presented in Child's Patent | Atmospheric Stamp and Quartz-Crusher. To provide a machine, at once easily profitable, cheap, simple in its 'i parts, and yet capable of testing on a sufficient scale any ' quartz reef or mineral vein without water, these were the difficulties to be solved. It is claimed for the machine ' above depicted that it answers all these requirements, awi\ nffm-^K n. tiipjitib nf fastirifr- -and of wnrKin£r if need be- -quartz reefs and other mineral deposits under circumstances of difficulty such as no other appliance has yet successfully met and overcome. The machine is very simple in construction, little liable to get out of order, and is cosily repaired by an ordinary mechanic when nocessaiy. The stamp-head used is about 75 pounds weight, but by the force of the atmospheric pressure it strikes near a 1000 pound blow, with an average rapidity of 150 blows per minute, o...

Tu the Editor of the 3't'mcs. .Sir, — I have received the enclosed letter from Dr. Bleasduli;, of Melbourne, upon the subject of the recent discoveries of diamonds in Now South Wales, with a request that I would forward it to you.

ADELAIDE. [Newspaper Article] — Evening News — 19 January 1870
ADELAIDE. 3 p.m. There wan another large fire last night in the Mount Lofty Eanges. The weather was too cloudy hist night for viewing the eclipse favourably. There were sales of wheat to-day at 5s. Mr. Baker's motion in tho Council, censuring the Government for their conduct in regard to postal tenders, was carried in an amended fomi, by striking out the name ot tho Uluet .-secretary, me carrying of this motion is likely to lead the Ministers to a con sideration of their position. The Government proposed a motion forgiving Mr. Bartley, hate solicitor to the Land Titles Office, £1500 compensation: on this an amendment was moved and carried, reinstating him in office. The corn market is very firm ; sales of wheat have been effected at 5s, with, a good demand at that price for export and milling ; flour is quoted at £12 to £l3.~Ifci(ilif.

THE LATE HAILSTORM AT PENNANT HILLS. To the Editor of the Evening News. [Newspaper Article] — Evening News — 19 January 1870
THE LATE HAILSTORM AT PENNANT HILLS. To tht Editor of the Evening Xeiee. Sir,— According to published reports, a deputation, consisting of some five members of Parliament, the Mayor of Farramatta, and three residents of the dis trict, waited upon the Hon. the Colonial Secretary yesterday, to seek Government relief for the sufferers by the abovenamed storm. It was quite evident that the deputation did not agree npon any mode of rehef. One gentleman sug gested the opening of a new road, of about two miles, into the Common, to enable him and otho.'s to obtain their firewood. Another gentleman thought that im mediate money relief should be given. Mr. Flood very sensibly remarked that it would have a very demoralising effect to distribute Government grants in the method suggested. Mr. Byrnes suggested that the Benevolent Asylum at Parnunatta could distribute relief of a pressing nature to the sufferers. As an old resident, I venture to assert that not one real sufferer, however pressing ...

Destbuction -if a Wheat Stack bv Fibe.— We regret to record that on Saturday List, a1»ut 2 p.m., s wheat stack containing about one hundred and ten bushels, and four hundred acres of grass on the pur chased land of Mr. Michael Linnane, farmer at Jam balla, near Gobarralong, were destroyed by fire ; some portions of a two-railed fence, which cost £36 per mile, were also burned, and had it not been so substantial more of it would doubtless have been consumed. At one time the flames approached within three yards of UTr T.innana'd rf*si^M,nw whinli contained somp valn&liltB papers in addition to the ordinary furniture, &£., and but for the active and earnest exertions of Mr. James Crowe, of Gobarralong, and his son, Thomas Crowe, who with prompt kindness hastened to render assist* ance, the dwelling must have perished. Mr. Linnane was from home ; but his wife, although ailing,' did her utmost to keep the flames from catching the home. The cause of the fire cannot definit...
LADIES IN THE HUNTING FIELD. [Newspaper Article] — Evening News — 19 January 1870
LADIES IN THIS HUNTING FIELD. ' Tire Ladies ! God bless 'em ! ' as we once heard the toast given by a bachelor, on whom it devolved to pro pose ttieir health. The orator was as ardent an admirer of the sex as he was of the virtue of brevity, and the eloquence compressed into that one sentence was ?a wortliier tribute to their charms than the most flowery peroration he could have uttered. But we are far from being bold enough to attempt to discuss angelic femininity generally — to analyse the wayward variety of temperament tliat has puzzled iil.ilncniiliars fmr «mia in mvo inwR nv ^/v?r-llllt for. O to dwell in rapture on their virtues, and point sorrow fully to their amiable little weaknesses. , With ladies in the hunting field alone have we to do, and if perchance in the course of our remarks we are | forced to give truth precedence to gallantry, they must . pity, not condemn us. First, there is the lady who takes au active part in the fray, and enters into the rough-and-tumble of ...
Remarkable Literary Forgeries. EXTRAORDINARY STORY. [Newspaper Article] — Evening News — 19 January 1870
Remarkable Literary Forgeries. EXTBA0RDIXAJ1Y STORY. _ , A cheat controversy has raged m the *««ncl1 Academy of Science for the last two years respecting the authenticity of various documents submitted to the pundite by M. Chasles, an eminent maOiemab cianf who subsequently declined to say where ne obtained them. This correspondence between Galileo, Newton, Pascal, &c, tended to prove that the honour, of Newton's grand discoveries of the law of gravitation and attraction should appertain to Pascal The late Sir David urewsier uun»»s'j refuted this theory ; and after two years' baiting, M. Chasles has himself at last admitted that he has been the dupe of a clever forger. A man presented him self to him eight years past as an archivist and paleseoirrapher. He offered to sell an extensive col lection of documents, the greater pail of which were then in. America. M. Chaslos, instead of nibbling at the bait, swallowed it entire; so the fisher played with him long-, giving him plen...
THE KERRY BREED OF CATTLE. [Newspaper Article] — Evening News — 19 January 1870
THE KEltHV BREED OF CATTLE. The main interest of capitalists nnd stockownere ill Australia having long centred in the production of wool, beef, and tallow, to the comparative neglect of tillage and dairy fanning — cattle have mostly been bred for their fattening qualities, to the almost complete exclusion of what in older countries is regarded as of equal importance — ineir vaiue as nieoiums ror xne pro duction of milk, butter, and cheese. Hence a good breed of hard economical milch cows is still a desidera tum in New South Vales. Such a breed as the Kerry cattle, it appears to us, would be admirably suited for the wants of ilnirymcn, small settlers, and private families. The Kerry cattle, although small in size, are not unsyinnietrical in shape, and possess two or three qualities not often found together ; for, while as a breed they are the best milkers in the world, they also fatten readily, and ore about the most hardy livers of known variety of homed stock. Youatt says: ' The Ke...
