WAITING FOR A SHOT. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 2 May 1874

WATTTN'íl T70R A STTOT THE sketch represents a small shooting party waiting for a shot in the more open country parts of New South Wales. Such parties rarely exceed ten in number, assisted by two or three beaters, men on foot or on horseback. The mode adopted is for the sportsmen to lie in ambush, provided with rifles, and the beaters then scour the adjacent country and drive the kangaroos across the path of the sportsmen, who generally manage to bring some of their number down as they go hopping along in their own grotesque manner. In some parts of the country the kangaroo are so numerous that the farmers and settlers are obliged to turn out in very large numbers to drive them into three-sided enclosures, where they are slaughtered by hundreds. In other cases hunting parties are made up, and when the long tailed marsupials are started along and exciting chase often ensues. The actual speed of the kangaroo is not very great, but their leaping powers are astonishing. They are very en...

THE S.S. SOMERSETSHIRE IN A GALE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 2 May 1874

THE S.S. SOMERSETSHIRE IN A fl-AT.ff.. THE Somersetshire left Melbourne on the 28th October, 1873, bound for London by- way, of " Gape Horn. She experienced fine weather until the 14th November, when she was overtaken by a storm, in which a sea struck the vessel and stove in some of the stern cabin windows and fiooded the cabins. This breach was temporarily repaired, and all went tolerably well until the 1.7th, when the wind rose to a gale, aud the glass sank lower than the captain had ever seen it before. The ship was running under.foresail, topsail, upper topsail, and main-topsail. All had been made as secure as possible above and below. Sail after sail yielded to the fury of the gale, and at last the foresheet was all that remained. At about teu o'clock a tre- mendous sea struck the vessel, penetrated the cabin, dashed a boat on the after-hatch, and stove it in. Down this aperture the water streamed from the upper deck and flooded the lower one. Soon after a heavy barrel of pork ...

CIRCULAR QUAY, SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 2 May 1874

CIRCULAR QUAY, SYDNEY. Oîf page 4 will be found au engraving of our principal commercial landing place, which, though quite as extensive as any wharf in the metropolitan cities of Australia, has been found wauting in accommodation for the in- creased and rapidly increasing shipping trade to this port. Some months back, we pub- lished a plan showing how the bertha at the Circular Quay might be arranged, so as to admit of the reception at the same time of twice the number of vessels which can now be conveniently introduced for the purposes of discharging or lading. Since that time the Government have had under consider- ation a number of schemes for re-construct- ing the Quay, and increasing the Wharfage room, all more or less based upon and similar to the plan we then advocated. One pro- j posed by Mr. Musson, and undergoing the ( consideration of Government, contains four- teen berths, and comprises eight wharfs and three jetties. Five of the wharves are 200 ' feet long, the others ...

MOUNT WARNING, N. S. W. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 2 May 1874

? MOUNT-WARNING, .N. S. W. ACCORDING to a promise made to our readers at the commencement of this year, when noticing the result of Mr. F. L. Montague's fourth Art Union drawing, we present our readers with a faithfully engraved copy of that gentleman's prize picture, "Mount Warning." This notable mountain, which forms one of the most prominent land-marks on the coast of Australia, is situated a little to the north of Cape Byron (the most east- erly part of our continent), about thirty miles inlaud, and on a clear day can be seen from the decks of approaching vessels a dis- tance of seventy miles. It forms part of the great range of mountains which divide New tíouth Wales from Queensland, culminating at Point Danger, in which locality a sight is to be obtained of some of the grandest, most majestic, and awe-inspiring scenery to be met with anywhere out of the Alpine dis- tricts of Europe, or the mountainous regions of North and South America. The country hereabout changes character ...

I To converse well, we need the cool tact of j talent ; to talk well, the glowing abandon of I genius. Immense drifts of iron sand exist near San Francisco. They are supposed to be .due to disintegration. The supply is suffi- cient to establish the iron industry in that ! vicinity. The circulating system of the water in the Crystal Palace Aquarium is similar to and avowedly made on the general model of the circulating system of the blood of many of the animals which the Aquarium itself main- tains in life and health. Thus the steam pump represents a heart, the coals consumed by the boilers are the food, the pipes are the veius and arteries, and the wide-spreading, air charged streams of water discharged at the jets are the lungs. The dried peach, boiled or stewed with sugar, is aperient, and very wholesome for I persons constipated, especially invalids. The ! kernels are bitter, but form a most valuable remedy. They are a great tonic for the stomach and bowels, and strengthen the di...

Poetry. A NEW "LEGEND OF THE FORGET-ME-NOT." [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 30 May 1874

$oetrt>» A. NEW " LEGEND OP THE FORGET-ME-NOT. » WHEN Psyche lost her lord, the Lord of Love, Weeping, alone she wandered, Listless, by every well-known üeld and grove, - And on her lost love pondered. Lastly by Lethe's stream her footsteps strayed ; And " Oh ! " she said, in sighing, ? " That I might dip, and my past life be made Like dreams with daylight dying ! " The big tears from her blue eyes raining down, Fell on earth's pitying bosom ; Sudden there sprang amid the sedges brown, Blue as her eyes, a blossom. And o'er her head, soft rustling sweet and low, As though some bird's wing fluttered, In these loved tones whose loss was all her woe,, "Forget me not" was uttered. No more : no sight, no touch : these words alone : And "Ah!" she cried, "forget thee ? Nay, but half love in our glad life was known Half love to regret thee. Forget thee ? Nay, these flowers my tears begot Shall be to me a token Of love : they shall be called Forget-me-not, The name to cheer me spoken. " So...

PROFESSOR COBBOLD ON WORMS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 30 May 1874

PROFESSOR COBBOLD ON WORMS. PROFESSOR COBBOLD delivered a lecture lately at Manchester College, on Worms, in which he dwelt especially on the ravages of the T)'io%ina spiralis. This is . the flesh worm of the human subject, and, as is known, people take the disease or import whole colonies of them into their bodies by eating underdone pork. The Professor exhibited some of these upon a microscopic slide, and said that in the small space covered there were over fifty millions, and that a child, at one swallow could consume a billion of them. In the course of his interesting remarks, the learned Professor referred to the depredations of this destructive parasite as follows :-" One man I examined enter- tained in his flesh 100,000,000 of guests rather a numerous body to feed ; but they fed on this man's flesh. They are generally taken into the system with the pork we eat : they are then only eggs, but in forty-eight hours after they reach the stomach most of them become individually a w...

TEMPERANCE HALL, RICHMOND, VICTORIA. THE situation of the Temperance Hall, Ttichmond, is at the corner of Church-street - and Darlington-parade. The style of archi- tecture is Italian, the structure of brick, cemented externally, standing on a plinth of dressed Malmsbury blue stone. Accommoda- tion is provided in the building for about 400 persons. On the left of the entrance hall, which is six feet wide, is a library IS x 12. and on the right are the secretary's office and a cloak-room, also a wide staircase leading to a lodge-room above, 29 x 18.

TOWN HALL, WANGARATTA, VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 30 May 1874

TOWN HALL, WANGARATTA, VICTORIA. THIS township is one of the most important opened up by the North-Eastern Line, and has a population of about 4000. Our engrav- ing represents the Town Hall, according to the finished designs. Competitive plans were called for in December, 1864, and although this design did not gain the prize, a section of the council was so much in favour of it that ultimately it was adopted. Only a portion of the building is at present erected, ?viz.:-Council chambers, town clerk's and surveyor's offices, and public reading-room. There is yet to be added a town-hall 48 ft. by 30 ft., by 20 ft. high, with handsome panelled ceiling j also, a public library and store-room. Tenders were called for in'l 867, and the lowest for the whole was £3670, but the couTicil being unable to expend more than one-third of this amount, a portion only could be proceeded with. Now there is rail- way communication, which has cheapened the price of materials, the'rest of the building wil...

THE RIVER DON, NORTH COAST OF TASMANIA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 30 May 1874

THE RIVER DON, NORTH COAST OF TASMANIA. THE River Don is one of the numerous small ports on the north coast of Tasmauia. It lies only two miles to the westward of the ? Mersey, and further to the west, at interven- ing distances of five miles each, are the ports of Leith and Ulberstone, on the Forth and Leven rivers. This part of the coast is therefore studded with harbours. On the banks of the River Don is the large establish- ment of Messrs. Cummings, Henry, and Co., whose commercial operations extend widely along the coast, and Launceston and Mel- bourne, where there are branches of the firm. Messrs. Cummings, Henry, and Co. have the finest cask manufactory in any of the colonies, worked by machinery on the newest principles. They have also steam saw-mills, and a furniture warehouse, where they turn out all descriptions of furniture, up to the most chaste drawing room suites, the latter being made exclusively of native woods, of which the blackwood is found to be little inferior ...
