Foot Rot in Sheep. LECTUHE BY J. POTTIE, VETEKINAIVY SURGEON, SYDNEY, (CONTINUED.) VESICULAR SCALDING. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 26 March 1870
Foot Rot in Sheep. LECTUHE HY J. POTTIE, VETEKINAIVY SUHGEON, SYDNEY, (CONTINUED.) VESICULAR SCALDING. I WI6U to refresh your momorios with a hriof recital of last week's work. Our first effort was to seek for au explanation of tho lawB cooperating for tko production of this par ticular kind of foot rot. Very often such labour is looked upon as superfluous-yielding no perceptible result, oxcopt tho pleasuro of knowing how nature operates. At other times, however, tho investigator is richly rewarded by some fortunate discovery simph'fyng the mode of treatment, or clearly picturing out some complete x-oformation. Possibly you may be already aware of the neutralizing effects which ono chemical element or compound has upon another ; hence, when wo have discovered that the agent is but a Bimple acid, we may meet it with a simple alkali. To illustrate my meaning : Let us suppose your room smells strongly of pent-up car bonaceous compounds. The burning of a piece of brown paper at once des...
THE CULTIVATOR. Beetroot Sugar. No. 2. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 26 March 1870
THE CULTIVATOR Beetroot Sugar. No. 2. NOTWITHSTANDING the groundlessness of the jealousy manifested by tropical cane-planters towards beet sugar manufacture, wo do not anticipate that such jealousy will be easily removed. Nor, while it were kept within reasonable bounds, would there bo much cause to deploro its existence. While cane-planters refrain from disseminating untruths with a view to deter enterprising men from ombarking in beetroot' sugar manufacturo, their jealousy, in its effects, will not be very different from a healthy and commend able emulation, inciting thom to increased attention to their business, and rendering thom alive to the necessity for seizing every means of improving the quantity and quality of their produce. Pinding that, notwithstanding the advantages enjoyed by themselves, the beet sugar manufacturers of Europe were pushing on the business to tho exclusion of cano sugar from Continental markets, they took alarm at the prospect of beet being introduced in...
Tortured to Death toy Mistake. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 26 March 1870
Tortured to Death toy Mistake. WE find tho following extraordinary case reported in the Melbourne papers just received. There appears to have boen no conclusive proof that tho poor boy to whom it refers was bitten by a poisonous snake, or indeed, any snake whatever; and wo cannot help suspecting that his death waa owing to the means taken to counteract tho effects of tho supposed bite-that, in fact, ho was tortured to death by mistaken efforts to prevent tho effects of poison not present :-" It appoars that the deceased, Robert Roderick Bethune, aged six Îroars, and his brother, aged nine years, living at Lynd lurst, Victoria, wore driving cows, and in coming homo about noon a largo black snake was seen going into tho scrub, which Alexander Bethuno thought bit lu's brother. They went homo, and tho older boy stated to thoir mother .that a snake had frightened them. De ceased did not say anything about tho mattor, and neither complained of having been bitten. About a quarter of an hou...
Stone-Breaking Machines [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 26 March 1870
BLAKE'S PATENT STONE-liltEAKING MACHINE. I Stone-Breaking Machines PERHAPS no labour-saving machine ever devised has superseded more -wretched drudgery then Blako's; stone-breaker. At the time -when tho Central Porto of New York, an American Bois de Boulogno of even greater magnificence then its Parisian prototype, was being laid out with Macadam roads, tho wantof a simple and effective machine for breaking road metalling was especially felt. As with most mechani cal events ; in that inventive country, this was soon mot by Blake's invention. Mr. H. !R. Marsden, an English engineer then residing in New York, hád every opportunity of witnessing tho success of this machine, and ho resolved to make its merits known, on his return. This was five or six years ago;: and already Mr. Marsden has made and introduced^ great numbers of theso machines, -which are now in high favour with road trusts, iron and copper miners,, iron-masters, contractors, and all -who have occasion', to break conside...
Ancient Ruins in America. Remains of an Extinct Race. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 26 March 1870
Ancient Ruins in America. Remains of an Extinct Race. A PARTY; from Camp Verde, Arizona, recently visited a place called " Montezuma well," situated on Beaver Creek, about eight miles distant. The well is about 100 yards hack from the stroam, upon a high, isolated monse, and is about 125 yards in width, and about 100 feet down to the water, whioh is surrounded by perpen dicular walls of rock. The water is very clear, of a light green or blueish colour, and is vory strongly impregnated with limo, sulphur, soda, iron, and other minorais. It has no visible inlet, but its outlet is by a subterranean passage at a point nearestJBeaver Creek, into which it empties a largo volume of Avntor. Tho whole country between tho " Siorra Prieta," and tho " Moyallan " ranges of mountains is a limestone form ation and full of caverns, somo of which aro quito extensive All along tho bluffs of tho Rio Verde and Beaver Creek, wherever these caves exist, they aro found to be the dwelling-places of a race ...
Eoxtic Trees and Pa[?]nts Suitable for Australia. THE BIRCH. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 26 March 1870
BÖxtic Trees and Paints Suitable for Australia. í THE BIRCH. THE birch embraces a considerable number oi Oopina of which tho most important aro thc Äon, tho " Black or Sugar Beech, the Yellow, and the Paper Beech. They are all natives of thc temperate zones and would riot perhaps reach their fullest nroportions except upon tho elevatod and exoosed" portions of the mountain regions of Aus tralia On our own Blue Mountains, Australian AIDS Liverpool, Moonbi, and other high ranges occupying immense tracts, and containing some of the 'finest land in the world, those species of birch would find a congonial home-and would add to the beauty of our mountain scenery, and to the wealth of those landholders who should have tho wisdom to introduce them on thoir lands amongst other exotics. The common beech is a treo of about sixty or seventy feet in height, and about five or six feet in circum ference. It grows fast, and generally^ attains a con * siderablo proportion of its full height in about...
Harrowing and Ploughing. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 26 March 1870
Harrowing and Ploughing. IN this country it is often a difficult; mattor to harrow stiff soil after it is ploughed. The harrow is tossed over tho great clods as if it were a skiff on the waves, so that a vast amount of time is lost coming over the same ground repeatedly ; and as it is impossible) for every farmer to got possessed of an expensivo clod crusher, it is of importance that ho should be in posses sion of some simple appliance. The most simplo that I know of, consists in fixing a small harrow of, say three or moro teeth to tho beam of the plough, so that while you are ploughing, you are harrowing at the same time. Tho size of the harrow must depend on the state of the ground. In a fine soil you may use a small barrow, but in rough soil a large ono must be adopted. If the harrow is larger than it ought to be it will pitch out of the furrow, but when properly adjusted, the catch which the plough has in the soil keeps the furrow firmly to its work.

Facts for Farmers. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 26 March 1870
Facts for Farmers. IT "will never bo known how many human ailments aro produced by eating the flesh of sickly animals. BROOM corn or millet is selling high this year. It is a profitable crop where brooms are made on the farm in winter. CARELESS feed, irregular drink, and rough usage after hard service, cause most of the complaints from which horse-flesh suffers. WHERE land is high priced, people will bo interested in fertilizers ; but where a fresh surface is cheap, dung is thrown into holes or brooks. SOME Japanese in California arc raising tea and making silk. They succeod, and find tho soil and cli mate well suited. No farms aro considered more profitable in the north of England than such as afford neat houses for tho labourers and command the services of married men the year round. As agriculture progresses we may note an advance in feeding from grass to roots. The better tho farming tho more artificial food for stock. THIS country wants moro artificial pasture, bigger manure he...

THE BYRON SCANDAL. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 26 March 1870
TTJE BYRON' SCANDAL. We may conclude that another nuisance has now boen finally abated. Our readers will recollect that in tho autumn we devoted considerable space to an examina tion of Mrs. Beecher Stowe's charge against Lord Byron and hui half-sister, Mrs. Leigh. Since that time the controversy, if so it may bo called, has raged with greater or iess severity, but we awaited tho publication of Mrs. Stowe's promised final proofs. Thoy have arrived at last, and aro absolutely worthless. They are mere reiteration of her allegation in her "Macmillan" article. Yet, perhaps, they ought not to be .called worthless, because they all tell the other way to that desired by her, and taken with now lotters of Lady Byron's, which havo appeared in tho Quarterly Review, they show that at tho time when tho crimin ality was said to have occurred, and for years after wards, Lady Byron could not have behoved in what she is alleged to haye said to the American lady. Tho Times, which at first thought th...
FRANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 26 March 1870
FRANCE. I But it ia in Franco that wo have witnessed political ovonta of real interest,-and they have been com plicated by a painful mcident wMch wo will : sub sequently mention. The Frenoh Ministry having fallon, it hos been succeeded by a Liboral ono, of which M. Ollivioris tho head, but to which tho prosonoo of tho Count Daru, an older and perhaps a firmer Opposi tionist, brings tho confidence of tho people. He takes foroign affairs. M. Chevandior do Valdiome, promotor of tho celebrated Interpellation of HG, is Minister of tho Interior. General Loboouf retains tho "War Depart ment, but the rest of the Cabinet is composed of men of Eregress. To these Ministers tho Emperor appears to avo given his full and frank confidence, and as they aro all pledged to reforms of the most exclusive charaotcr, Napoleon may be fairly credited with an in tention to concede most of tho changes demanded by France. Tho Ministry have obtained an enormous majority on the only question of importance on wh...
