AUSTRALIAN WINES. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 28 March 1874
AUSTRALIAN WINES. SPEAKING of Australian wines, and the doubt attempted to be thrown upon their genuineness, by Dr. Thudicum, the English Gardeners Chronicle observes, "Australian wines are occupying public attention more than they have ever done before, as visitors to the colonies are more numerous, and, to their astonishment, find these wines in gene- ral use, and, being induced to try them, find them, in many cases, to be palatable, healthy, and good. " That a proper trial should be given to these wines by the British public is highly desirable, for, although our market seems well supplied with wines, yet we all know that much of what are sold, although backed by certificates of those who put themselves forward as experts, or, from medicinal know- ledge, think themselves capable of judging what is good, are merely artificial product- ions, and, in many cases, anything but health giving. Australian wines, we believe, arc sent in what may be considered a pure state, as no additions...
LIEBIG ON SUB-SOILING. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 28 March 1874
LIEBIG ON SUB-SOILING. IN medicine, symptoms are the body's mother tongue. And in agriculture the crops reveal symptoms which are more reliable in refer- ence to practical farming and the treatment of the soil than anything that can be ascer- tained by chemical analysis, though no doubt the desire to have everything explained and expressed in figures is extremely natural, especially as there are so many hobby-hawks among agricultural folks preying upon every theory that takes wind, and bolting it, feathers and all. A peculiarity of the times, both in medicine and farming, is the disposi- tion to break away from matter-of-fact, ' and to set up something based on a dream, or a fancy, in the place of experience. The effect of sub-soiling cannot be alike on any two soils, and they cannot he reduced to a demonstration beforehand. There is no knowing, with absolute certainty, what the effects of a process may he till we have tried it. We cannot be quite sure of the results either of rhuba...
HOW DEEP TO SET MILK. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 28 March 1874
HOW DEEP TO SET MILK. AT a recent meeting of the Western N. Y. Butter Makers' Association, the question of the proper depth of milk was discussed. Mr. D. A. A. Nichols read an essay, in which he maintained that in the absence of full and satisfactory experiments, the most profitable depth seemed to be from two and a-half to four inches. O. 0. Blodgett held that milk should be cooled whatever the depth of setting, and that water is the most available agent. The question is, How shall we cool and keep cool our milk, so that all the cream can rise before it sours ? Mr. Thomas Dye, of Stockton, has a dry cellar at the back of his dairy house, and all the air admitted into his milk room is passed through this cellar, so that it is cooled down to 60 degrees or below before it is admitted. He can keep his milk two days before it sours. Mr. Blodgett thought that a system of pipes, or tiles, could be arranged underground out- side of the milk room, with an upright pipe and funnel, through wh...

ON THE CRACKING OF FRUIT. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 28 March 1874
ON THE CRACKING OP FRUIT. M. BoT/ssiNGAULT has recently communi- cated to the Academy of Sciences, at Paris, some observations on the cracking of fruits, which are of some interest to the horticul- turist. The phenomenon is unfortunately too well known. The cracking is undoubt- edly attributable to an accumulation of water in the tissues, the epiderm not being suffi- ciently elastic to yield to the pressure, thus causing cracks. It cannot, says Boussingault, be due to an arrest of evaporation alone, be- cause absorption by the roots is checked in wet weather. It cannot, therefore, be ad- mitted that the water which accumulates in the fruit, and causes it to crack, is derived from the sap, but there is reason to think it occurs from the absorption of water through the skin of the fruit, by endosmose. In order to test this latter point, M. Bous-, singault experimented with various fruits, by weighing them and then immersing them in pure water for some hours, till cracking re- sulted. ...
Original Poetry. DIVES IN THE BUSH. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 28 March 1874
DIVES IN THE BUSH. HE'S no scripture save the Herd Book ; This doth all his actions guide ; Other works have no importance - If they're not to such allied. Painting, Letters, Music, Science, Fairer than all else may be, But the only things he cares for Are his stock and pedigree. Horseflesh well ho imdorstandeth Knows what colt a victor came Has the hist'ry of their foaling, Breeding, raising, and turf name. Far and wide his run extendeth ; Owner he of miles of ground ; "Where tho mark'cl tree line now endeth By few bushmen can be found. Yet he lives in quito a shanty Dirt is in that rudo abode Ground the floor, and bark the coiling, (Just a mile, too, off the road). Hung around are whips and saddles, Bridles," bits, and thongs of hide, Martingales, and worn-out cruppers, Oft lipon buckjumpers tried. Skins and 'possum rugs are forming His rude bed-he asks no more. Berth there's none, nor chair nor table, Here all sit upon the floor. Daybreak finds him "after cattle," Miles away out ...
FIRESIDE REFLECTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 28 March 1874
FIRESIDE REFLECTIONS. THE sentiment embodied in this picture will find an echo in the memories of many old colonists. How few there are in this country of adoption who have not at some period found themselves sitting gazing into the fading embers, which, as they sink down and down, draw the mental eye further and still further into the buried past, lighting up faces loved and lost, opportunities slighted, duties unfulfilled ? Held by this magic of remembrance, we can imagine the bushman before us retracing the steps of a chequered life ; his pipe out and forgotten, but still mechanically held in one hand, while the other has just as unconsciously let fall the scrap of paper that has so powerfully struck the chords of memory. Presently he will recall himself with a start ; perhaps essay to press out the lines that have gathered on his brow ; and, replacing in his valise the links that bind him to other years, will turn again to the everyday thoughts and work of the station. This the ...
MESSRS. JOHN FRAZER AND CO.'S STORES, YORK STREET. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 28 March 1874
I MESSRS. JOHN FRAZER AND CO.'S STORES, YORK STREET. THESE buildings were erected in 1S66 on the site of premises occupied hy the original firm which were destroyed by fire in the previous year. They were expressly designed to meet the requirements of a large wholesale mer- cantile business, and are perhaps the largest and most complete premises of the kind in the city. The principal elevations have frontages of S-4 feet and 75 feet respectively to York-street and Barrack-street, and are constructed entirely of masonry. The build- ing is of a massive and substantial character, with bold and effective ornamentation suit- able to commercial premises, and expressive of strength and solidity. The back elevation is of pointed brickwork, with handsome stone dressings. An extensive cellarage, well drained and lighted, occupies the whole area of the premises and affords storage room for an enormous quantity of heavy merchan- dise. The frontage to York-street on the ground floor is occupied ...
HOLIDAY RAMBLES—MOUNT MACEDON. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 28 March 1874
HOLIDAY RAMBLES-MOUNT MACEDON. MOUNT Macedon is distant from Melbourne some forty miles, and is best reached by railway. Looking from the station towards Mount Macedon, the traveller perceives a narrow, elevated, and somewhat steeply inclined plain, closely wedged in on two sides by steep hills, with a road running up the centre, and cottages dotted here and there. That is the township of Upper Ma- cedon. The distance by the road is about three miles, by the track about two. About a mile and a half from the station you reach the falls on the Turitable Creek, a pretty spot, and a great place for picnics. Our artist has sketched several points of interest, the Falls on the Turitable Creek ; a crossing on the same, opposite the Falls hotel; fern trees on the road to Mountain Megs ; Mount Diogenes ; and the Devil's Hole. Mountain Megs, so called from a hut, now in ruins, formerly occupied by a woman who went under that name, and who, if re- port speaks true, must have been a charac- ter...
THE DIAMANTINA SPRINGS [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 28 March 1874
THE DIAMANTINA SPftTNTttS THE Diamantina Springs, so christened in honour of Lady Bowen (wife of the Victorian Governor), is situated at the foot of Mount Baldi, a peak of the Australian Alps, in the Gipps Land district. The surrounding scenery is bold and diversified, and quite characteristic of these remote, and, until re- cently, almost unknown regions. The spring is one of the sources of the River Murray. Its water is clear and cold, and collects in a sort of basin only about three feet in width at the mouth. It then flows through a ravine, forming a channel through reeds and underwood, until it is lost to the view amidst the winding intricacies of the ranges. Our sketch, which was taken on the spot, is very spiritedly drawn, and conveys an excellent idea of the natural beauties of the place.

"STDKTST POTCH, HEAD OFFICE! 128 KING STREET, SYDNEY. To the General Public, Subscribers, Advertisers, and Agents. SYDNEY PUNCH is conducted on such principles of impartiality, tolerance, fearlessness, and free- dom from personalities of a private character, that everyone may be amused and interested in watching the Merry Jester strike folly as it Hies, and entertained by his quips and jokes, without being wounded by bitter malice or unseemly allusions. Public evils are satarised, vice is held up to scorn, and folly rodiculed: whilst the paper is allowed to contain nothing that shall prevent its being read iu every family circle, with which object in view, SYDNEY PUNCH will frequently contain illustrations having reference to domestic events. In conséquence of the Great Circulation of SYDNEY PUNCH, and its being read by vast numbers who never look at a ne« spaper, it is invaluable as an ADVERTISING MEDIUM for Town or Country.

A spirited rowing match took place on the Parramatta River last Saturday week be- tween Messrs. Trussell and Tierney, which was won by the former, by three lengths. The first mile was done in eight minutes, and the whole distance, three miles, accomplished in thirty-one and a half minutes. A match, £15 to £20, between the skiffs Endeavour and Haidee, on St. Patrick's Day, was won by the former boat, which came in ! three minutes fifteen seconds ahead. The course was from Woolloomooloo Bay, twice round Shark Island, and back. Some experiments were gone through by the Torpedo Company attached to the Naval Brigade, down the harbour, on 14th March. They were arranged to exhibit the power of instantaneously exploding submerged tor- pedos. An old boat, towed at the rate of seven miles an hour over one of these infer- nal machines, took one graceful leap sky- ward, and then separated into fragments. The practice, it is understood, will be con- tinued fortnightly. Importance is attached to ...

In the Black Sea there are no tides, hut the level of the water along the shore is con- siderably influenced by '. the action of the wind. Near the mouth of the Danube, it varies from 18 inches below the mean sea level, when the wind is from the west, or off the laud, to 2 feet above that level when the wind is landward, or from the east. Competent observers testify of the Ameri- can woman in her highest state of develop- ment, that her most cherished notion of dinner is to have some flowers on the table, and an elegant dinner service. Some form of pork, hot bread, strong coffee, no flowers on the table, and something sweet and indi- gestible, is the notion of a dinner entertained by vast numbers of both the women and the men of that portion of the American popula- tion which is less developed ; while in many parts of the country there is an uneasy feeling, perhaps derived from our Puritan ancestors, that there is something disgraceful in eating at all, and dinner is looked upon as ...
FOTEST CULTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 2 May 1874
FOTEST nrrT/rrTRTC . THE following article on forest tree culture in the United States is from a recent report furnished to the American Department of Agriculture. Many of the remarks are so applicable to forest conservancy in general that they will no doubt be read with interest. The author says :-Unquestionably one of the most important questions engaging the attention of the American people is that of forest culture. The demands of our rapidly growing country have for many years so drawn upon the resources of our native forests which at one time seemed inexhaus- tible, that we must now contemplate their early extirpation, and address ourselves to the task of conserving what forests we have remaining and providing new sources of sup- ply. M uch has been written on this subject, but so difficult is it for us to realise the bear- ing of remote evils that comparatively very few farmers or landowners have yet seriously engaged in the work of replenishing these woodlands. The arguments...
RE-PLANTING TREES. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 2 May 1874
RE-PLANTING TREES. IN France the reboisement, or re-planting c the mountains with trees, is carried on upoi an extensive scale of operations. The coun try has suffered much from inundations am from torrents, which have washed away fer tile soil, have undermined houses, whol , villages and fields, past which they flowed and carrying away the débris, have deposite* this elsewhere, covering therewith fields an&lt; vineyards and towns. With a view to avert or prevent sucl evils, there have been erected in river beds protecting walls and piles, and similar struc- tures, designed to divert the current and turn it into a safe channel ; and there have been constructed continuous slopes to regu- late its flow, rapidity, and force. There have also been introduced combined and modified forms of these' various appliances which manifested great art and skill, and ingenuity and power. It would be exaggera« tion to say that these have proved in every case an utter failure, but it would onl...
