New Method of Detecting the Presence of Gold. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 26 March 1870
New Method of Detecting the Presence of Gold. AT ti recent meeting ef the Wellington (New Zealand) Philosophical Society, a vory interesting paper on anew method of detecting the presence of gold in quartz, ' was read by Mr. Skey, a gentleman attached to the government laboratory. It seems that Dr. Hector having had an immense number of specimens sent to him to be tested, had become desirous of finding some simplo and rapid means of ascertaining the presence of gold, and had consequently directed Mr. Skey's attention to the matter, who has, it is claimed, invented a method which fully meets all requirements without the uso of quicksilver. The details of the system are briefly as follows :-The stone having been thoroughly crushed and calcined, so as to alter the chemical character of any sulphureous matters, is immersed in a bath of iodine or bromine, and ofter this has stood a time, slips of Sweedish filtering paper are dipped into tho fluid and driod, the alternate dipping ana dryi...

T!-::¡ii:ric UAT.K AÏ NÜWCUSTI.K, ox KVXDAV, JIAUCII 20, 1870. Terrifie Gale at Newcastle. j j [ïEOM OTJB SrECIAI/ HEP OUTER.] r Newcastle, Monday momincr. Marok 21. The continued wet weather which we have experi enced here for the past three weoka culminated yesterday in a gale of terrific violence, by far the worst wo have had for the past three years. In the opinion of many persons well able to judge, tho force of the wind was even greater at times than it was in tho memorablo gale of 1867, when tho Cawarra was lost. The weather on Saturday appeared to be taking up, and it was not until the evening of that day that any indications of such a violent change were apparent. Towards evening, however, tho sky again became overcast with heavy-looking clouds, and by 9 o'clock tho rain was teeming down in torrents, and the wind bogun to freshen. Things remained in this way till about 12 o'clock, when tho wind had freshened to half a galo, and by 1 o'clock it was blowing a hard gale from t...
Mr Milner Stephen's Gold and Diamond Washing Machine. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 26 March 1870
Mr Milner Stephen's Gold and Diamond Washing Machine. A number of gentlomen, including tho Hon. tho Colonial Treasurer, tho Hon. the Minister for Lands, tho Hon. Mr. Owen, tho Hon. John Robertson, Mr. Raker, M.L.A., and other gentlemen connected-with gold-mining pursuits, met on Tuesday, on tho vacant space of ground near tho water polico court, to test Mr. Milner Stephen's gold and diamond washing machine. Wo aro informed that tho machine is the result of many years' experience on tho part of its inventor, coupled with a patient study of tho best means of extracting gold from its matrix. It is certainly an ingenious pieco of mechanism, and will, if it fulfils expectations, entirely supersede all the contrivances that have been in use from the commencement of gold working in theso colonies. Mr. Stephen's invention combines the gold diggers' cradle, tho quartz crusher, and tho amalgamator, and is intended to extract the finest gold-dust by a con trivance which is set in motion with a...
A Cheap and Effective Machine for Gold-miners. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 26 March 1870
A Cheap and Effective Machine for Gold-miners. THE " arrastre " is ono of the simplest forms of appa ratus used by the poor, diligent Mexican miners for tho simple extraction of gold from quartz or other gold bearing rocks. The construction is very similar in shape to the common puddling machine. The follow ing particulars will sorve to convey an idea of the method adopted by the Mexicans, and will perhaps be found to be of service to the alluvial miners in different parts of the country, particularly those miners of Cargo, as the characteristics of tho auriferous gravels around the neighborhood of Mount Canoblas are of such a nature as require a mode of treatment different from tho common way, because by washing by toms, sluices, or puddling tubs, both much fine gold, as well as the golden gravel, with pyrites containing per haps.a largo quantity of gold, is entirely lost, and which if otherwise would probably prove remunerative to the labour expended. Accordingly I submit the foll...

And yet if wo will, sweet Naturo, Is as ready to bless us now, As when wo entwined her blossoms Of beauty around our brow ; And our hearts may bo fresh and tender, And our feelings as warmly glow, As when we played In tho meadows, All caroless of wealth and show : And in Ufos full str...

AN OLD STORY. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 26 March 1870
AN OLD STORY. Tho lovely Cinderella dances with a pretty fellow, And her pumpkins turn to carriages, her rats to horses fine : Fate strikes grimly on the dial with a sound of no denial, And her satins ceaso to rustle, and her diamonds cease to shine. Forth into tho chilly darkness, in her solitude and starkness Goes tho bloom of dissipation, with no lovely fruit behind ; With no strength condensed in meekness, with no holy nature weakness, With no thorn of resolution, with no aftergrowth of mind. Back to vermin shrink her horses, on her pale and ghostly courses, R igs replace hor recent splendours, unadmired her beauty wanes ; Siio bemoans tho mocking fairy .who uplifted her unwary Through a paltry prize of pleasures, to a multitude of pains. -JULIA WARD HOWE.
