LOCK-JAW. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 11 January 1860

LOCK-JAW.-A very curious communication on this dangerous affection has been presented to the French Academy of Sciences by Dr. Yella, of Turin. We have several times had occasion to mention curare, a juice which the Indians of South America poison their arrows with ; if intro duced into the blood, it will kill an ox in forty minutes, while on the other hand, large doses may be taken inwardly without any danger what ever. This we know to be likewise the case with the poison of the most deadly snakes. Dr. Vella, having remarked that the numbness caused by curare is antagonistic to the tetanic spasmns which are produced by strychnine, was struck by the idea that the former might be a specific against tetanus or lock-jaw when produced by wounds. As a surgeon to one of the wards of a French military hospital at Turin, where several cases of traumatic tetanus existed, he had in excellent opportunity of testing this remedy, which he did with the concurrence of M. Salleron, chief physician ...

THE EMPEROR NAPOLEON ON "THE CLERGY AND THE STATE." [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 11 January 1860

TIlE EMPEROR NAPOLEON ON "THE CLERGY AND THE STATE." ----+-- The following is an extract from a chapter on "The Clergy and the State." in the 2nd volume of the complete work of the Emperor Napoleon III.: "The clergy will ceease to be Ultramontane when they shall be obliged, as formerly, to distinguish themselves by learning, and to obtain their education from the same sources as the generality of citizens. Southern Germany, without contradiction, is the country in which the Roman Catholic clergy are the best in structed, the most tolerant, and the most liberal; and why are they so? Because the young men who in Germany destine themselves to the priesthood, learn theology in common with' students destined for other pro fessions. Instead of being from infancy seques trated from the world, and obtaining in ecclesi astical seminaries a spirit hostile to the society in the midst of which they have to live, they learn at an early age to be citizens before priests. The consequense is that t...

NEW MODE OF PROPELLING SHIPS BY STEAM. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 11 January 1860

NEW MODE OF PROPELLING SHIPS BY STEAM. (FROM THE BRISTOL MERCURY OF 8TH OCTOBER.) *We were invited on Monday to witness a trial, at. the. floating dock of Messrs. G. H. Stothert aind Company, of the model of a steam vessel propelled by d novel application of water power. It is the invention of an operative engineer, Mr. James Newcombe, and is the reward of many years' research and painstaking application; and so well is it thought of by scientific and nautical men who have seen it, that Mr. John Lovell, African merchant, of this city, has been induced to join the inventor in patenting it, and it is now known as " Neweombe and Lovell's Patent Ocean and Canal Hydraulic Propeller." The principle of propelling by water is, we find, among the early inventions of marine pro pulsion. A patent for the same was granted so far back as the year 1661; and again in 1704, Papin mentions the fulmination of water when struck with a hammer, and says, " more force may beo brought out of water than we...

DO LARGE OR SMALL FARMS PAY BEST? [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 11 January 1860

DO LARGE OR SrMALL FAlMS PAY BEST? (FROM THE VICTORIA AGRICULTURAL GAZETTE.) There are a great many of our agricultural friends who, to gratify a desire they have to act high lifo below stairs, aim" at becoming large famers before they have been small ones. The breadth of their acres, and the number of their servants, is in their opinion, the high road to fortune-making. It is, to a certain extent, an undecided question even in Britain to this day, whether large or small farms will pay best, although the advocates for small farms seem to have the best of the argument. Much depends upon the circumstances and climate under which the attempt has been made to demonstrate which is the more profitable. Farms of equal size, present totally different features on the west coast of England or Scotland, to what they do on the east coast ; and other opposing natural causes also contribute their share towards the difficulty of solving the riddle. As a question for the consideration of landed pro...

ELECTRO-BIOLOGY. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 11 January 1860

- LELCTR 0-BIOLO G .: (FROM THE EMPiEl ..Eleotro-biology is attracting such ai'amount of public interest in this city as to call for something more than a mere report of the fact tlhat lectures are given, and the experiments exhibited, and audiences amused. This start ing ugand curious subject requires to be examined iwith that spirit of rational " scepticism" which is so clearly expounded by the Saturday Re Review, in an article :eprinted in the Empire, last Tuesday: the sop' icism that refuses either to accept as fact, or reject as fiction any state 'ient presented to the mind, until candid in qiiry has furnished grounds for belief or dis belief. When " mesmerism" first claimed the atten tion of the world, it was not received in this spirit.; but by some it was eag.rly embraced as worthy of unhesitating credence; by others, and after a short time by nearly all who spoke of 'it, 'it was repudiated .as a popular delusion. Our first recollection of the subject is that it was commonly...
