HALLETT'S PEDIGREE WHEAT. (Concluded from our last.) [Newspaper Article] — The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser — 7 June 1864
HALL ETT'S PEDIGREE WHEAT. (Concluded from our last.) I do not mean that when wheat is drilled or sown broadcast in the usual way, and at the usual time, we dannot obtain any of the advantages to be de rived from the repeated selection of seed. On the contrary, I have found that Pe digree alone has increased my crops from 25 to 30 per cent., but the fullest possible advantages of it are to be reaped only where the grain has the opportunity of fully developing the properties it has de rived from a long succession of parents, each of which has been so situated as to attain a perfect growth. The time of planting, however, decides the distances between the single grains; those given below are fixed upon with a due provision for casualties. I would give the following directions for all soils:-Invariably plant only one grain in each hole, as this has been found to produce more than any other number. The holes to be dibbled 14 inches deep, when harrowed in, and the following distance apart...
RURAL SCENES. [Newspaper Article] — The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser — 7 June 1864
'A 'RURAL SCENES. (Freeo the.Hersle). IMasy travellers who have had the good fortune to visit Devonshire, or to reside for a tiine in that justly called the "Ga:r den of England," acknowledge the simi larity of its scenery to that of our own district of Illasarra' This -e'semblance, although striking,'!gf course, general. It would be unre onablb itoexpect a country so new a cullivated/fac simile of land upon which has been bestowed the careand thought of ages o?tcivilisation. There is, however, something which brings to mind its beauties in the same way that a strange face, by its general ex pression, may forcibly recall the memory of an absent friend. This similarity commences soon after leaving Wolloegong, and is maintained without interruption away through Dapto and'Kiams to Mount Pleasant and over the land embraced in tihe magnificent view obtained fi om its summit,--bounded by the coast line and the sea on one side, and on the other limited' only by the power of vision.

Thie driver of Mr. Roberts' coach (George Miller) and tile passengers were ordered to alight, a command tlhey appear to have obeyed with alacrity. Curran, on seeing tie bushrangers approach, slipped his albert-chaisi from the button-hole of his waistcoat, and succeeded in secreting it and thlo watch attached. He was not so suc cessful, however, in concealing twenty-one £1 notes which hle had in his vest pocket, for detectioni followed thie attmlt, and oni getting from thie coach hIe had to hIand them over to Hall- A nugget pi...

Sydney, 4th June, 1865. Ssn,-In your issue of thIe 31st May, we were treated to a sample of ministerial re mnarks fron tile Roman Catholic Priest of iamua, and in the previous issue we had a still greater treat from a brotler.pricest of Shoalihaven, in thie asseortion that a ioRnan Catholic Priest is necessarily an educated man anud a gentleman.

I am not going to entor upon either the logic or thie spelling any furtlher than to remind Mr. Flacgan, that those who live in glass houses should not throw stones; and it does not require any very great stretch of memory on the part of your readers to remember a certain illogical con clusion abount Ireland arising frrom her ashes, &c., &e.

It would be irrelevant to my sole purpose in this to attempt any vindi cation of tihe tone adoptedin that article of thme biees which called forth your letter. Nor shall I stay to prove how inapplicable to the awful calamity at Santiago are your remarks upon the usefulness of rites and symmbols in the worship ol our Lordt God. Enoughl to observe that on that occasion it was not in worship of Him but of HIis creature that they were employed. ?E ouai h as expluaining our bitter sorrow and Indi nation to say that, in our view of it tlhe catastrophe was occasioned, not by rites and symbols nor an expenditure ol'" wealth and taste" in the worship of the Deity,...
