THE LOCH ARD. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 27 June 1874

THE LOCH ARD. OF late ill tidings have arrived here of   marine disasters much in the same way as the messengers of evil came to Job. Scarcely has one misfortune been recorded when "yet another messenger came unto us." The Loch Ard is the second of three vessels recently arrived in a crippled and dangerous condition. She started from Glasgow in December last, and after being dismasted in a heavy gale she went back to refit. After which she made another start, leaving port on the same day on which the John Kerr, another flne new iron ship, left Liverpool. A great ocean race was looked for, as both vessels are of first-class construction. The first intelligence brought of the disasters that happened to the Loch Ard was by the City of Berlin, which reported having seen the Loch Ard on the 7th April, in an entirely disabled state. Subsequently she was got under jury rig. With great pluck and deter- mination Captain Robertson, the commander of the Louh Ard, pushed his way on...

An eldei'ly man named Daly met with a _ serious accident at Louth Park, Minmi. He was working at the hridge in that locality, when he fell off, a distance of 20 feet, breaking his arm and ribs, the injury to which neces- sitated his removal to the Maitland Hos- pital. One hundred and seven persons left the settlement at Port Darwin by the Gothen- burg last trip, intending to proceed to the southern part of Australia. The mines there have not yielded well, and the directors in some of them deaiguate the companies as . swindles.

THE JOHN KERR. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 27 June 1874

THE JOHN KERR. THIS vessel, the last of the trio of dismasted ships that have recently arrived at Mel- bourne, started almost simultaneously with the Loch Ard, and instead of entering on a grand ocean race, as expected, she was subjected to a career of disaster even worse than that of the Loch Ard. It is very evident that both vessels were caught in the same storm. She left Liverpool on the 27th January. All went well until the 3rd April. On that date, the vessel being in lat. 45 south and long. 71 east, the Avind came on to blow a strong gale. In the morning the storm increased in fury, and the ship was hove to under lower fore and main topsails aud storm staysail. The band through which the topsails reeve was carried away, and the topsails were blown clean out of sight. Tlie fury of the storm made it im- possible to present canvas to the gale, and there being nothing to steer the ship by, she rolled and laboured voy heavily. At mid- night on the 14th the topgallantmasts went over ...

SAWDUST POR STABLES.-A correspondent of tlie Field says :-I litter the horses on it to a depth of nine inches, raking off the damp and soiled surface every morning, and spread- ing evenly a little fresh, removing the whole four or five times a year. Its advantages appear to he many, of which I will state a few which give it, in my estimation, the greatest superiority over straw. It is much cleaner, and more easily arranged ; and, of course, much cheaper at first cost, making in the end excellent manure. It is peculiarly beneficial to the feet, affording them a cool porous stuffing, a substitute for the soil of earth Ave always find in the hoofs of a horse at grass, and presents the nearest resemblance to a horse's natural footing-the earth. We never had a diseased foot since the introduc- tion of sawdust in the stable, now some years since. Horses bedded on sawdust are freer from dust and stains thau when in ordinary litter ; simply because* sawdust is a better absorbent perhaps, an...

THE GRAND HOTEL SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 27 June 1874

THE GEAND HOTEL SAN FRANCISCO, i CALIFORNIA. ONH HALP of our American papers come to us lament« lng in ehoras that their cities are insufficiently Bup plied with accommodation for visitors. This is de- ficient either in extent or in quality. The public impor- ' tance of such acommodation is usually underrated. Most of the Northern American cities are now well supplied with hotels and it is a plea« sure to sojourn in them. Leaving the range of the cities of Philadelphia, Cin ; cinnati and St. Louis, and going south, the" absence of nt hotels renders travel a misery and a horror. New Orleans possesses ono hotel of tolerable, quality ; but Mobile, Savannah, Charles- town, Baltimore, Eichmond, Memphis, Nashville, and cities of lesser note, are pro- vided only with a class of taverns which were com- panions to, as they are* relics of, the age of stage coaches. No other American city of its population is better supplied than San Francisco with first-class hotels, nor in any other is the c...

CLUNES TOWN HALL, VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 27 June 1874

CLUNES TOWN HALL, VICTORIA. THE town hall at Clunes, of which we give an illustration in this issue, is one of the most pretentious of the public buildings of the non-metropolitan boroughs. It is built of brick and stone, and the tower can be seen from all parts of the district. The foundation was laid by Sir Charles Gavan Duffy, at the time he held office as Chief Secretary. The building comprises three bays or compart- ments ; the first being the central^ containing the large hall, mayor's and committee's rooms ; the second, the police court, magis- trates' rooms, &c. ; the third, or left wing, the borough offices. The approach to the central hall is by a flight of steps leading to a portico of columns with carved capitals, which support an ornamental arch. This leads into a good-sized vestibule, and a hand- some flight of stairs thence to the great hall, which both for size (for it is 142 ft. x 47 ft. ) and ornamentation, is one of the noblest rooms in the district. Every...

THE NIKAU PALM GROVE, NEAR NELSON. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 27 June 1874

THE NIEIATT PALM GROVE, NEAR NELSON. AMONGST the many beautiful forms in the flora of New Zealand, the Nikau palm is one of the most elegant and striking. Although it has neither the wealth of colour of the Rata, nor the impressive form of the Kauri, its graceful stem and delicately tinted fronds will always give it a foremost place amongst the finest trees of the New Zealand forest. The pith of the cabbage palm, as the Nikau is called, is largely used by the Maories as an article of food, and, cooked as they know how to cook it, in the primitive Maori oven, is as delicate a vegetable as one need wish for. Mr. Gully has represented a grove of Nikaus in his fine sketch, and although a similar group will be found in many a New Zealand glen, we believe we are not wrong in saying that the lovely group of -palms to be found in Happy Valley, a pretty spot not far from the town of Nelson, has been selected for the picture.

NOTES ON IRON. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 27 June 1874

..? ???'iii .' / NOTES ON IRON. ? 'SOMETHING- like a crisis has occurred ia the -iron trade at home-the inevitable conse- quences of the late extraordinary high prices. Joint stock companies operating in this material have raised dissatisfaction amongst their shareholders, who doubt the truth of balance-sheets presented, and wish to know how they are to fare in future. Where all the materials have had to be purchased at anything like current rates, it is absolutely impossible to make iron and sell it at the prices to be obtained. The quoted cost of manufacturing one ton of iron rails, by the most economical method, is £14 ls. ; while the prices at which rails are now sold do not reach more than £9 10s. Belgian iron is offering at £10 10s. per ton, the quality being not a whit inferior to the best Staffordshire manufacturedat£13. The crisis hasevidently come, and employers and employed cannot he said to be prepared to look the difficulty fairly in the face. Hardly in a better condi- ...

A TRIP TO THE GIPPS LAND COAL FIELDS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 27 June 1874

A TRIP TO THE GIPPS LAND COAL FIELDS. I PEOPLE wno have travelled on unmade Australian roads may be well able to realise the perils and pains endured by those who have to traverse what is known as the "Middle stage," between Melbourne and Sale; but there are very few who could adequately describe the pains and penalties attached to the coach seat of a traveller who ventures on that abominable track in one of Cobb's coaches. It is generally traversed by night, and the. prospect is not cheerful. Wherever moonbeam or lamp-light falls, water sparkles-if that which is semi-gelati- nous can claim to be called water. As the coach wriggles from side to side, in search of firmer soil, you constantly sight rough poles stuck into the ground. These are to the way- farer what the lighthouse or beacon is to the mariner, and each one indicates the site of a quivering bog, into which some unwary traveller has, at some time got stuck. As we give them the widest of wide berths, our driver points out ...

ON SEWING MACHINES. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 27 June 1874

ON SEWING MACHINES. 'SOME time back the Lancet published an .alarming article on the injurious effect which .sewing machines of a heavy make had upon their operators. One of the London sur- geons examined a number of patients who were employed principally in large clothing factories, and found that they all-Buffered from nervous debility, and other symptoms ?directly traceable to the constant exertion which necessarily occurred in using heavy .double-actioued machines. The statement was denied at the time, but facts which have recently come to light prove conclusively that the evil was not an imaginary one, and that, although an indefinite amount of light machine work for the household may be in- dulged in without harm resulting, yet in large establishments, where speed is con- sidered,, by most employers, one of the very first qualities necessary in an operator, and the machines are of1 an unusually heavy description, many young women have been seriously injured in health through t...

M. Armand Gautier, in his Chimie appli- quée à la Physiologie et à la Hygiène, re- cently published, gives figures whose elo- quence is absolutely startling. Man, he says, extracts annually from the bowels of the-, earth, and consumes for his requirements, 130,000,« 00 tons of coal, containing, on an . average, 75 per cent, of carbon ; 98,000,000 tons of carbon are therefore annually trans- formed into 356,000,000 tons of carbonic acid. Admitting (by no means an excessive supposition) that the remaining cases of com- bustion (wood, oils, &c.) represent the fifth . of the preceding quantity, we see that manu- factures, navigation, and domestic economy pour into the atmosphere 427,000,000 tons of carbonic acid a year, or about 216 milliards-' of cubic metres (more than a yard) of that gas. In the volcanic regions of the globe» carbonic acid escapes from craters and fis- sures in perfect torrents, producing amass of gas ten times greater than the preceding -namely, 2160 milliar...
