Tube Wells. [Newspaper Article] — Burra Record — 16 August 1878

Tube Wells. The advantage of being able to obtain a supply of wholesome water, under the most un favourable circumstances, with jbhe smallest expenditure of labour, will be appreciated by colonists and explorers geneiv ally. The Tube Wells origin ally invented by Mr. Norton, and since greatly improved by Messrs. Le Grand and Sutcliffe of Bunhill Row, have proved most successful for this purpose. The principle is to force a series of thin hollow tubes through the earth one after the other until water is reached. After the first tube is driven in, a new tube is screwed on, and this progress is continued uutil the desired object is attaind. Messrs. Le Grand and SutclifFe hsve patented a very ingenious process for driving the tubes, by which a maximum force is obtained with the least possible labour.

The New Taxation Policy. [Newspaper Article] — Burra Record — 16 August 1878

The New Taxation Policy. We confess to considerable surprise on some grounds at the action of the Government on Tuesday last, though on other thoughts perhaps it is only characteristic, that they should trim their sails a little if wisdom so dictated. The Treasurer in delivering his Budget Speech, indicated, very vaguely, his intention to propose an Income Tax, but now he says that not only he, but the House] and the country, have been somehow in a fog, for he meant not only Income, but Property Tax. Then why did he not say so. We quite expect to see the Income Tax by the board yet, and perhaps even the whole scheme, so long as it does not carry the Ministry with it Our own idea was fully ex plained a fortnight since (August 2nd), and more particularly proved to be the very best, in fact the only fair plan, by the Register of 6th and 12 th inst, in two articles which we commend to a! as fully justifying what we have said before. One suggestion we would make, and that is that the tax...

The Clock of Clocks. [Newspaper Article] — Burra Record — 16 August 1878

The Clock of Clocks.. In Mengel's building is now on exhibition on in all pro bability the most wonderful clock in the world. It was built by Stephen D. Engle, a watchmaker, at Hazleton. He is about forty-five years of age and was about twenty years in perfecting the clock. Mr. Reid paid Engle 5,000 dollars- for it. Engle never saw the Strasburg clock. In facthehasnottravelled more than hundred miles from home at any time. This clock stands eleven feet high. At its base it is about four feet wide and at the top about two. It is about three feet deep at the base, gradually less twoards [the top. Its colors are dark brown and gold. The Strasburg clock is thirty feet high, yet its mechanism is not so intricate nor has it as many figures as the Hazleton clock. The Stras* burg clock's figures are about 3 feet high and the American clock about nine inches. Three minutes before the hour a pipe organ inside the clock plays an anthem. It has five tunes. Bells are then rung, and when the hour...

Reminscences of Early Colonial Life. [Newspaper Article] — Burra Record — 16 August 1878

Reminscences of Early Colonial life. Gold discovery — It is an amusing exercise when one is- in the humour for it, to speculate as to what might hare been the state of affairs it certain events had not transpired. Some one has- taken it for granted that a gsodly company ol Cromwell's, and Hamptons have died ingloriously it their native villages; simply because the times never afforded (hem field for the cultivation of their genius. And we may take it for granted that a large number in our day of migration are prevented from taking front rank as discoverers by the officious precedence of Columbus, Cook, and others who pat themBelres oat of the wsy to- forestall the modern voyage. What these colonies would have been if .gold had not been discovered is a question to be pondered, in view not only of the number of people inhabiting our continent end extent of country brought under control; but also in view of the mental tnd physical characteristics of tbe coming race. The unearthing of o...

Wreck Of the Barque James i . Service. [from the Perth Tngmrer.

Bottnest, reported' in our last Summary. No doubt exists that the fine vessel James Service, bound from Calcutta to Melbourne, struck on : the Murray rett, about 40 miles south of Fre mantle,aud (hat every soul on board went down with her. The early discovery of the wreck was a matter of mere accident, as that portion of the coast is rarely visited and is many miles dotant from any homestead. A vessel was seen among the reefs on Tuesday morning, the 23rd ultimo^ by a native, who gave information to a polios constable, who at once proceeded to (he beach, but was onry able to discern a vessel's masts just above the sur face of the water and about seven mites off shore, nearly west from point Robert, ...
