Literature. A TROUBLED NIGHT. CHAPTER I. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 2 May 1874

literature* A TROUBLED NIGHT. CHAPTER I. SOME few autumns ago, the rector of a little seaside parish sat conning his books in the quiet ol' his own study. It was a wild October evening, the wind twirling and rushing up the short drive that lay between the front door of the house and the gate in the shrubbery which divided the grounds from the high road ; dasheB of rain beat against the window ; and underlying all came the faint monotonous break of the waves upon the shore some half-mile distant. Mr. Fergusson Avas puzzled over his work, bothered by it, in fact ; finally, he sought the assistance of the inferior order of creation, to wit, his wife, who sat opposite to him, busily knitting children's socks. " Kate !" he ejaculated in an injured tone. "Well, John?" The knitting-needles kept going, though the plier thereof moved to her husband's side, and stooped to glance at what troubled him. " These accounts are a frightful nuisance. I wish I had never undertaken such a piece of busi...

Original Poetry. AT CHURCH. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 2 May 1874

Original $ottrt>« I AT CHURCH. I She sits in her pew,-'tis the Sabbath ! {«?.That clay of most perfect delight, How fair does she look in her garments, fcHow spotless tiley seem to the sight ! Her eyes have the lire of a duchess, p#Her brow bears the stamp of a queen, Her mouth wears a smile quite angelic, In her visage is nothing that's mean. She turns o'er the leaves of her missal, And reads therein proper and slow ; Stands up when the time comes for standing, Or kneels down when others clo so. Her voice is a marvel of sweetness,. 'Tis clear as the notes of a bird ; She sings hymns in tones so delightful That a listener heareth each word. The text is mark'd plain on her tablets, To be conn'd at leisure elsewhere. Let me tell you she doats on the preacher, And worships his manners and air. All he says she rehearses in secret. And this is her one hope in life - That he will come forth in the future, Proposing to make her'his wife. Such, then, are her true aims and motives, As coq...

TOWN HALL. FITZROY. VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 2 May 1874

TOWN HALL. FITZROY. VICTORIA. THIS building, one of the most imposing edifices surrounding Melbourne, is situated at the corner of Moor and Napier streets, the front elevation facing the latter thorough- fare. The most striking feature in the erection is the clock tower, which is very lofty, and visible from all part3 of the sur- rounding neighbourhood. Mr. W. J, Ellis prepared all the plaus, and the memorial stone was laid on July 8th of last year, after which the building rapidly proceeded, the necessary money-£25,000-having been obtained by loan. The large public hall is 102 feet long, 47 feet wide, and 33 feet high ; the council chamber is 40 feet long, 24 feet wide, and 16 feet high ; and has a library conveniently placed of 40 feet by 20 feet by 16 feet. The clock tower, which has four stories, and an open pillared mansard roof, encircled by an ornamental iron railed bal- cony, is 17 feet 6 inches by 13 feet 6 inches in area, and 104 feet high, and commands a magnificent view ...

OUR SUPPLEMENT. "PUNISHMENT!" [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 2 May 1874

OUR SUPPLEMENT. " PUNISHMENT !" THE habits, manners, and. customs of the Australian aborigines would, if commented on in extenso, far exceed the limits which eau be allotted them in our columns, otherwse we might give a thorough description of such. As it is, only the subject illustrated can be touched on, nnd this is a somewhat interesting, though peculiar phase of abori- ginal life. The title, "Punishment," is, perhaps, sufficiently suggestive. The tall native in the foreground, armed only with nulla nulla and shield, having committed some misde- meanour calculated to excite the ire of his tribe, is compelled to endure an ordeal as. terrible as it is extraordinary. Having been condemned, at a tribunal of his chiefs, on a certain day (generally about the full moon) a lonely spot among the mountains, far remote from civilization, is chosen as the scene of the ordeal, and he is led captive to the place by a large concourse of male aboriginals. As in the Borah (another important nativ...

THE GINGILIE PLANT. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 2 May 1874

THE GINGILIE PLANT. I THE above plant, whick yields a fixed oil, worth £40 per ton in England, has been re j commended for cultivation in the northern parts of this colony and Queensland. It has succeeded very well near Melbourne, but operations have not hitherto been conducted on a large scale. The method adopted in Ceylon of express- ing the oil is rather primitive, and conse- quently it possesses an unpleasant flavour, and a brown, muddy colour. If properly prepared, the oil would form a very good substitute for sweet oil. The best method of preparing the oil is as follows :-First, steep the seeds repeatedly in cold water, or boil them for a short time, till they are divested of the reddish-brown colouring matter contained in the epidermis of the seeds ; then, when the seeds have become perfectly white, dry them in the sun, and express the oil in the ordinary way. The seed yields from 40 to 44 per cent, of a pale, straw-coloured oil. When thus prepared, the oil is perfectly devoi...

STURT STREET, BALLARAT, VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 2 May 1874

STURT STREET, BALLARAT, VICTORIA. STURT-STREET, Ballarat, is a street that would grace any city in the world. It has a broad well-made roadway, on either side of which are substantial, and, in some cases, very ornate buildings. The large building provided with a clock-tower is the Town hall ; it presents a very imposing façade. The building approached by steps, and seen in the immediate foreground on the right hand side, is the Post and Telegraph offices. The fountain standing in the centre of the road was built m memoriam of Burke and Wills, the first explorers who succeeded in crossing the continent of Australia. The street, in addition to many architectural elegancies, is beautified at one end by a long row of trees, planted by the corporation. Colonial readers will not require to be told that Ballarat was one of our earliest   goldfields.

ADAM'S PEAK, CEYLON. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 2 May 1874

ADAM'S PEAK, CEYLON. THE most conspicuous mountain in the island of Ceylon is Adam's Peak, about sixty miles from Colombo. It is visible seaward from a distance of 150 miles. The Hindoos say that'upon its peak is a distinct impres- sion of the foot of Buddha, and the mountain, it is also asserted, is the mausoleum of Adam. Local tradition records that after the fall Adam was led by the Angel Gabriel to the island of (Serendib) Ceylon, where he met Eve, from whom he had been separated 200 years. Here the human family largely in- creased, Eve having twenty accouchements, each time bringing forth twins-the one male, the other female. The sceneiy in the vicinity of Adam's Peak is very grand. When the Duke of Edinburgh was at Ceylon in 1869 he was received in great state by our present governor, Sir Hercules Robinson, who at that time had charge of the Indian colony. A magnificent pavilion was erected for Prince Alfred at the base of the moun- tain, and from this his Royal Highness saile...

THE LATE DR. LIVINGSTONE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 2 May 1874

THE LATE DR. LIVINGSTONE. THE news of this heroic man's death was received universally with feelings of deep | and genuine regret. When the first intelli- gence of his decease reached here it was hoped that the report, like many others pro- ceeding it, was false ; hut unfortunately it .was soon confirmed, .and the world has in consequence to mourn the loss of one of its brightest ornaments. When Stanley disco- vered Livingstone, in 1871, it was humanity's wish that the scientific hero, after finishing his explorations, would return home to his family and native land, enjoy the full fruits of his arduovis labours, and rest in peace and honour until called by his Creator to traverse that shadow land from whose bourne no traveller returns. How vain these desires were we have had reason to deplore. A des- patch was received in London on the 2Gth January, from Aden, to the effect that Dr. Livingstone died at the end of May or the beginning. of Juue, between Lake Bemba and Lake Tanganyika...

POLLED CATTLE HERD BOOK. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 2 May 1874

- POLLED CATTLE HERD BOOK ' THE breeders of Norfolk and Suffolk red polled cattle in England, we read, recently met for tbe purpose of establishing a herd book for that class of stock. A standard description was agreed upon, a committee of revision was appointed, and it was resolved to ask the assent of the various agricultural associations and cattle clubs to the standard adopted. This standard is-as follows : A superior animal must be of a deep red, with udders of the same colour ; nose not dark or cloudy ; tail may be white at the tip. Eorm : a neat head and throat ; a full eye ; a tuft of hair or crest should hang over the poll ; the frontal bones should contract somewhat above the eyes, and terminate in a narrow prominence at the poll or summit of the head. An imperfect standard includes those having the belly or the udder white, but no semblance of a horn can be admitted. Ani- mals answering to this standard, which were in existence on January 1st, 1S73, maybe ? entered in the...

ON NEGLECTING FARMS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 2 May 1874

ON NEGLECTING FARMS. AN American gentleman, some time back holding tbe position of agricultural editor on one of the most popular journals in tbe "States," bands in the following, which, ' though written as an advice to settlers in the i Great Republic, he says applies as well, if not better, to free-settlers in New South Wales : "We have known people ambitious to make money, who would spare no labours to increase their income, and when they had secured it would spend it to no purpose waste it ; get rid of it they scarcely knew how-and have nothing to show for it. They were good to make money, but could not keep or use it well. The only good they could get of their money was the doubtful good of having it pass through their hands. There are many people of this stamp ; they can get business and do it ; can earn great wages ; drive and push through auy amount of toil ; make long and olose calculations ; talk largely and well about business, but cannot increase their own capital. Their...

ENTOMOLOGY. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 2 May 1874

ENTOMOLOGY.     IT is really surprising that this truly won- derful, interesting, and instructive science is not more appreciated among Australians, considering the fact that so wide a field is open to the entomologist, and so near at hand wherein to pursue his researches. No study possesses more attractions for youth or manhood, or tends to develope those qualities which are so necessary to insure success in life, namely, patience, persever- ance, and research, and nothing in this world gives man more cause to acknowledge the greatness of his Creator than the study of entomology. Many objections have been raised against this science on the ground that it withdraws the mind from matters of more importance. Such is really the case if indulged in for the mere sake of collecting "pretty things," but where the study is entered upon for the purpose of collecting specimens for classification, noting their habits, and watching their wonderful meta- morphoses, who ...

H.M.S. "CHALLENGER" AT KERGUELEN ISLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 2 May 1874

H.M.S. " CHALLENGER " AT KERGUELEN ISLAND. OUR illustrations on page S represent Christmas Harbour and Island Harbour, Kerguelen Island, lately visited by H.M.S. Challenger, which is now in Sydney waters, with Professor Wy ville Thomson, and a com- plete scientific staff on board. In summer, Kerguelen is one of the weirdest aud most wildly romantic spots in the Southern Ocean, but in winter it is ali that is expressed in its other name, "Desolation Island." It stretches in a southern direction between the parallels of 48 and 50 degrees S.,- and is in longitude 70 degrees E. The entrance to Christmas Harbour is overlooked by Cape Francais on the north side, and on the south side by Arch Point, so called from a natural arch several hundred feet high, separated from the neighbouring cliff. Further up the harbour, to the right, a huge basaltic boulder thrust up through the surrounding volcanic strata frowns down on the anchorage, whilst on the left rises Table Mountain, which com- mands...
