GLEANINGS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 4 May 1861

GLEANINGS. VALUE OF A DEAD HORSE. - Dr. Lank - ezier, in a lecture delivered not long since in London, states that the value of a dead horse is from 20s. to 60s., the average value 40s.; the average weight in lbs. 950. Every application to art or science of this dead horse renders him of greater value; and it is for us, engaged In va rious ways in the arts of life, to see whether we can apply things that have hitherto been wasted. Five hundred horses die every week in London. The hair is worth from 8d. to Is. per lb., and it is Hsed for making haircloth, for stuff ing mattresses, and making plumes, aiid bags for crushing seeds in oil mills. Then the hide weighing 301bs., is worth 8s., which is, perhaps, not agreatdeal of money ; but when you have from 360 to 600 a-week dying within a radius of five miles from Oharing Cros9, it comes to some money. Then the skin is used fo* a variety of purposes ; tendons, you know, are made into gelatine, and glue and jellies. You must not be partic...

Thm «Mrd is to be found principally :at Port Esaington it is expressly and beautifully adapted for traversing the floating leaves that rise to the surface .of the water. This bdrd confines itself principally to the centre of lakes, lagoons, &c.: and is therefore scarcely visible from the banks. It feeds npon the floating aquatic plants, over which. the great length of its toes and nails enables it to run with great facility; at the same time it can dive at once, or take to flight. Their powers of diving are equal to those of any known bird- i but on the other hand, their powers of flight are weak. 'They will, however., mount up fifteen or twenty yards, and fly a distance of about three quarters of a mile, but generally they merely rise above the surface of the water, and fly off about ?a hundred yards; during flight their iong bony legs are thrown out .horizontally to full length; while feed ing they utter a slowly ...

THE BABE'S QUESTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 4 May 1861

THE BABE'S QUESTION. ** DOES you love God ?" The question came from a sweet pair of lips. Opposite sat a young gentleman of striking exterior* The man and the child were travelling in a stage-coach. The latter sat on her mother's knee. Her little face, beautiful beyond description, looked out from a frame of delicate lace work. For four hours, the coach had been toiling on over an unequal road ; and the child had been very winning in her little ways,-lisping songs ; lifting her bright blue eyes often to her mother's fade, then falling back, in a little old fashioned, contented way, into her mother's arms, saying, by the mute action, " I am happy here." For more than an hour, the dear babe, scarce yet entering the rosy threshold of her fifth year, had been answering the smiles of the young man, who had been pleased with her beauty. Hd had nodded his head to her little tunes; he had offered her his pearl-handled penknife to play with ; and, at last, his heart went over to her at every...

"Then why can't you tell us what is and what ain't ?'* ThiS was a little colloquy between poor old Ralph Grange, whose back had teen turned for a moment, but who was keeping watch and ward over his master's bedroom in Latson Towers, and a strange gentleman from London. Old Ralph Had sufficiently recovered to get up, Latson Towers was fast going down.

LIGHTS AND SHADOWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 4 May 1861

LIGHTS AND SHADOWS. It was on a Tuesday afternoon, nd just a week after the wedding. Glisson and Jessy were seated in their old room, the nursery ; Glisson, not rocking her self in idleness, but pacing about angrily, in what Jessy called " a temper." On the -carpet sat William, playing with some toys; and Jessy was trimming a cap for herself with white satin ribbon. The work seemed somewhat to puzzle her, for she pinned the ribbon on, and un pinned it, in indecision. " Nurse, see here," cried she, holding the cap towards the view of Mrs. GKsson, as the latter approached her in her restless wanderings. " Would this look better, quilled round the'Crown, or put in bows at the sides ? Just tell me what you think: I want it to be smart." '.It would look best this way," re turned the nurse; and, taking the cap and ribbon from Jessy's hand, she dashed them to the ground. The reader, how ever, must not take a wrong view of Mrs.<51issori*s strange action: she was perfectly sober. ...

"Remember Jacob - Jacob, wasn't it ? - yes, Jacob." " What of him, dear? " " It is said, that when he was a dying, he worshipped, leaning upon the top of his staff.' " " I've often wondered what that means," said Ruth. " Just so, and that's the reason you're always persuading me to change my name.

THE FAMINE IN INDIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 18 May 1861

THE FAMINE IN INDIA. FAMINE is still sore in the land. The Commissioner of the Agra Division re ported to Government last month that the distress was not on the increase ; that there has hy no means been any thing like a total failure of spring or rubbee crops in Agra or Muttra; that á considerable yield of grain would be the produce of this year ; that large import* of grain from the eastward were daily arriving ; that there had been rain in some of the districts, besides the Agra Division, whose harvests were in jeop ardy three weeks previously ; and that these circumstances would probably prevent a further rise in the price of food, and might be expected to lower it considerably. He maintains that noth ing at all comparable to the distress and suffering felt in 1837-38 exists at present, and that nothing which can be correctly cabled a famine will add to the present agricultural distress, unless the periodi- , cal rains of the coming season are with held or are greatly deficient ...

GLEANINGS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 18 May 1861

G LEAN I N G S. WATER, WATER EVERYWHERE.-Water penetrates into everything1 save metals, and even into some of these, especially into iron and lead. Nearly all the earths, flint, lime, clay, &c, are pervaded hy its influence. All soils, even the hardest contain water in abundance ; few having less than one-eleventh, some being near ly half water. It penetrates every rock, till sandstone becomes so full of it that one or two millions of gallons can be pumped daily from a single well ; while chalk is still fuller of water. The micro scope has shown that water is even con tained in some of the primary rocks, quartz often holding it in such quantities that the cavities are large enough to be seen by the naked eye ; and it is probable that mica, felspar, and quartz, though first evolved by heat, have been dissolved by water and laid down in beds. Of the human frame, water forms so large a component part that the most thoroughly smoke-dried old crone that ever ran the risk of being...
