MAURITIUS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 21 March 1868

MAURITIUS. ? The mail brings us Mauritius news to the 6th February. A fine crop was expected, but some planters would not be able to recover from former losses. Fever was again increasing alarmingly, and the papers are full of details of sickness and destitution, and of remarks upon the necessity of sanitary reform. The Overland Commercial Gazette says : — ' Since our last, the weather, as far as agriculture is concerned, has been as favorable as could be desired, and the plantations are very fine, promising, we may say, an abundant crop. On the other hand, the fever is increasing ; the death rate, which is four times what it should be in Port Louis, gives but little idea of the sickness that pre vails. At»this time last year there were very few cases ; it was only at the latter end of Feb ruary that fever prevailed, and even then the deaths were far below what they are now. The mortality in January as compared with the two previous years was as follows : — , ? January ? n 1866. 186...

MANAGEMENT OF THE BUTTER DAIRY. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 21 March 1868

MANAGEMENT OF THE BUTTER DAIRY. In answer to a series of questions prib . lished hi the Westchester (Pa. ) Republican;, a correspondent of that paper furnishes the following very valuable article, which should be. carefully read and1 considered by all butter dairyman :—' v Pastures and JIay.— In answering his first question I would say that as a pasture for the production -of butter I 'would greatly prefer a natural growth, suefcas is usually found in our brandy-wine meadows. Good clover pasture will increase the ataount of milk, but my expe rience has shown ine that if my cows produce a given amount of butter from natural pastures, they will, when turned on to clover, decrease the amount of butter at least one-fourth, while: the amount of milk would be -materially in creased. I would unhesitatingly give tbe pre ference to good natural grass as a butter pro ducer. For. hay, I would fetilT give the 'prefer- ence to natural grass, but the difference is not nearly so great,; for. I hol...

Sporting. THE DISTRIBUTION OF THE MARIBYRNONG STUD. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 21 March 1868

Sptnj. THE DISTRIBUTION OF THE MARIBYRNONG STUD. By Peeping Tom. And so Mr. Fisher has adopted the sugges tion thrown out by a correspondent in The Avsfralasian, and is going to dispose of his valuable stud by lottery. I believe it to be the -only plan by which the intrinsic value of such a lot of horses could be realised. They are altogether different to . the general run of commodities - thut have a fixed market price, as it is almost impossible to estimate their actual worth, so much depends on fancy and contingencies. Who knows what a Fishhook may be wortn to a man inat nas got two or three of Mr. Melhado's 5,000's to 5 about double and treble' events? or any of the two year-olds that are entered for our next year's Derby, or what amount some wealthy squatter would, give for a Smuggler or t'uch a grand bred horse an Maribyraong amongst his mares ? I am perfectly certain th^,t, 'unless Mr. Fuher sold off the stud' privately by degrees, that a sale by auction ^ould have been a fai...

Critics of Wit sub Humor. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 21 March 1868

Criflts of Mxi anb |to,. A gentleman hiring a servant in New York, after patiently enduring the usual catechism, when asked, 'And have you any children?' replied, ' Yes, I have five j but I can drown two or three if you insist upon it.' Josh Billings correctly '' remarks : — 'Success in life is very apt tew make us forget the time when' we was'nt much. It iz just so with the frog on the jump ; he kant remember when he was a tadpole — but other folks can.' The son of a shoemaker, holding a commis sion in a volunteer corps took occasion rather arrogantly to reproach one of t e privates, while at exercise, with the awkwardness of his walk. ' It is no wonder,'1 replied the other, 'as the last pair of shoes your father made me pinch so confoundedly that I find it difficult to walk at all.' During the Crimean war a lady was distributing tracts to theoccupants of the ward of a hospital, and was excesssively shocked to hear one poor fellow laugh at her. She stopped to reprove the wretched p...

LONDON WOOL REPORT. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 21 March 1868

LONDON WOOL REPORT. Notwithstanding the dull accounts from the North there have been a few contracts made, chiefly for sorts ' most required, and for the Continent some few hundred bales of Sydney and Port Phillip are enquired for. The accounts from Melbourne confirmed the information recently given that shipments of wool for the March sales will not equal last year, the total cleared to date being 48,000 bales, a ainst 60,000 bales in transit or ready for shipment at corresponding date of last year, viz., November 27. From Sydney also we have only manifests of 6,700 bales up to end of November. it js probable that the shipments being de layed in consequence of i he heavy rains, mji,y make the totals for March much lighter than generally expected, and it will be subject for consideration on the part of merchants whether to delay the sales later on in March, and then submit a sale equal to that of last year, or offer the lesser quantity. There can be little question that a clear mar ...
