The extentot railways now (lS56)com7 plotecl.in Great Britain and Ireland is 8,054 miles. , ' " These lines have cost £280,000,000.; : There are more than SO miles of'tunnel. There are 1L miles of viaduct in the neighbourhood of London. The earth-works of the' railways measure 005,000,000 cubic yards. The earth thereof would form a pyramid ; a mile and a half in height,-with a base larger than St. James's Park. ■ Eighty millions oi' miles are run in the course of a year by the trains. There are 5,000 railway engines, and 150,000 working vehicles. f ; The engines in a line would extend from London to Chatham. The vehicles from Lonuon to Aberdeen. The various companies employ 90,000 officers and servants. The engines consumc annually 2,000,000 tons of coal. In every minute of time 4 tons of coal convert into steam 20 tons of water. In 18...

the sunflower and uses. Among the productions, which at no distant day may become one of the most'vah'mble as a source of industry and an'article of commerce,' the Sun? flower claims prominent attention. As the planting season has again f"come round, it will not be inopportune to dircct the attention of our agricultunH!'reard\x=req-\ ers to the policy of its cultivation. As i art article of food for, poultry,' or :for fattening live stock, the yield of this i plant will bear a favorable comparison with any of the class possessing similar properties. By far the most; valuable quality of the plant, however ' consists in its yield of oil—A product or'itself of vast importance as an article of commerce, commanding at all times . a ready sale, either '-for export, homa consumption or foreign' fit for use either at the table or for manufacturing purposes, and one which, if largely produced, would readily create for itself a large , demand ; by the displacement of the oils of inferior qual...

Gipps Land Guardian, Friday, 30th October, 1857. THE NOMINATION. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Guardian — 30 October 1857
Sinn ft &lt;&uartfimt, Friday, QOth October, 1857. THE NOMINATION. A general feeling of surprise and dissatisfaction has been evinced throughout the district at the . result of the Nomination at Sale on Saturday last. A want of energy and public spirit unfortunately characterises all pastoral districts, and Gipps Land, or at least the pastoral portion of it, is by no means exempt from this failing, but we did not believe that on an important occasion such as this, any difficulty would have been allowed to intervene between the great body of electors and the discharge of the grave duty which devolved upon them on Saturday. This neglect of ■ duty and' the inattention of the electors to their own most impor- j tant interests, have been quickly followed by an appropriate punishment ; but, unfortunately, the whole district participates in the disgrace of having such a person as Mr. Dexter even put in nomination, an event which would not have occurred, or at least would no...
