PROFITS OF POULTRY-RAISING. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Guardian — 6 November 1857
PROFITS OF POULTllY-RAISINGr. ' A paragraph, from the Nem York Trill una Jias- gone the round of the, papers, ; demonstrating the profit to be obtained 'from the proper management of poultry. There can be no doubt that the pursuit is n profitable one, but the gains to be derived from the poultry yard will be commensurate with the scale upon which it is carried on.; Constant care, cleanliness, regularity in feeding,: abundance and variety of food, shelter; from' the heat of summer and the rains of the winter,, are requisite to ensure success, without. these, disease and death will soon make sad havoc among poultry, as lias lately been the case in I Melbourne, but with these, and access to a market, the pursuit will .amply repay those who follow it. One point however is im- i portant in the calculation of profit, the i food for the fowls should be raised at home, | or one season of high prices will leave ai loss instead of ■ a profit. The smaller va-1 rieties of Indian corn succeed we...

CORRESPONDENCE. THE FARMERS' CLUB. To the Editor of the Gipps Land Guardian. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Guardian — 6 November 1857
0011R.ESP0NDENCE. THE FARMERS' CLUB. I he Editor of the Gipps Land Guardian. Si ii,—The success that, has attended the establishment of the first association for the advancement of agriculture among •us, must be gratifying to nil who desire the welfare of this part of the colony, but T think that this success would be more marked, were it not for a difficulty • you alluded to in your report of one of •the meetings, I mean the distance to be' ■travelled nt night by some of those who attended. The season of the year at which the club was started was also most unfavorable; even with the assistance of daylight, some of our roads are scarcely passable, and after a man has been ploughing all day and then cleaned and made himself comfortable, it must be a very strong inducement that will draw him from his fireside to travel over such roads to a^public meeting. That there should have been any. attendance at all under i the circumstances was highly creditable ,to .the farmers. But as one dee...
NEW PORTABLE STEAM THRASHING MACHINE. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Guardian — 6 November 1857
NEW PORTABLE STEAM THRASHING MACHINE. [From fcliu Glasgow Herald of May 22.] We have had the opportunity of witnessing on the iarin of Balornock, belonging to our townsman, Mr. A. Menaies, the operations of a new thrashing machine . which is likely to afford many, ad vantages over the present system-in. the conducting of an important department-of farm labor. The machine is portable, and receives its pow.ur from a steam engine, somewhat resembling a locomotive, which is connected with, hut does not form part of it.' We are not .in a condition to give a description of the internal mechanism, but we may state that the machine is fed from the top, and the sheaf, comes at onca in contact with the drum, which, is .constructed of malleable iron of fine workmanship,,and makes no fewer than one thousand revolutions in the minute. In the. orclinniy machine, as is well known, the head of the sheaf is introduced to the drum through a pair of rollers, the drum itself usually revolving at the ra...
Gipps Land Guardian, Friday, 6th November, 1857. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Guardian — 6 November 1857
; &lt;@ua rtttait, . -.-Friday, Qth November, 1857. 'It is, we believe, decided that the sum of £2000 voted by the 'Legislative Assembly, at the suggestion of Mr. Davis, is to be expended in draining and forming the road from Tarraville to Bruthen Creek. Drainage is in "every. instance a necessary pre: li miliary to the construction of a permanent roadway in this district, and when the work is done 111 the winter, as has unfortunately: been the case -hitherto, all travelling on the road, as oar readers well know, is suspended 'for the season. There is still a [faint hope that in future this inconvenience may l:e avoided by lhe; timely disposal of the estimates for the ensuing year, and that the necessity for carrying on such works at the season most unsuited for tliem- will no longer exist. This, hpweyer, is' by no means the most important point in the consideration of this subject. Unless we are content, to see the same confusion prevail in the construction of our main road...

ECONOMY ON THE FARM. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Guardian — 6 November 1857
ECONOMY. ON THE FARM. No one subject is so little understood and practised by farmers as economy, By-.this we.are.not understood as advo cating parsimony or niggardly stingi ness, for tliis would lead to'results more to be deprecated- than extravagance • but the lesson::we mean to inculcate is that order of things—that perfect sys. tern of management on the farms with regard to the cultivatiou of the svilj, \ , ;lie improvment of stock, and. the bring ing' in of every department of agricul ture, horticulture, stock-raising; and gardening, ^o . that, each " will be a source of profit to the. owner. : How, then, is this desirable object to be attained? asks (he reader.
