AMERICAN ENGLISH. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 27 June 1874

AMERICAN ENGLISH. THE readiness with which slang is adopted by the highest and gravest officials is really ¡astounding. My readers know there is a miserable joke extant about some one who wished to say that an account was " all cor- rect," but he spelt it " ol krect ; " this was seized upon as wit, and now, to my certain knowledge, " O. K." is used in large compa- nies as an .auditor's or superintendent's voucher to the accounts he passes. All through the States, too, it is considered a .very smart thing to open a shop, and call it the " Ü. K." store. : it is quite understood .and universally accepted as a really clever ¿ind neat idea so to use these letters. Again the coarse expression, "Boss," carries with it no disrespect in the States ; I have seen well printed forms, nicely machine-ruled, and so forth, which were used as a schedule of ex- penses incurred in boarding the employes of .a certain Company ; at the bottom was a line for the signature, as was indicated by the words " ...

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

THE TRICHINA SPIRALIS. WE last month, gave a condensed report of Professor Cobhold's last lecture on the above destructive parasite about -which so little is known at present. We are indebted to Dr. Strehz, M.D., of Sydney, for a photograph of the Trichina Spiralis. He obtained it from Brevet Lieutenant-Colonel and Surgeon J. J. Woodward of the United States army. The description which follows was also supplied by Dr. Strehz : Thia parasite, which created at one time so great a panic on account of the Trichini asis, a disease to which it gives rise when introduced into the human stomach, infests sometimes the hody of pigs which are sup- posed, to entertain this unwelcome guest when eating rats. These latter are con- sidered to be the original home of the worm from what has as yet como to light. Certain it is that only such persons are liable to be attacked by the formidable disease as are in the habit of eating pork imperfectly cooked. A temperature of nearly 55° Keamur is ne- cessa...

ENTOMOLOGY. THE MYRMELION, OR ANT LION. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 27 June 1874

ENTOMOLOGY. í / - ; THE MYRMELION, OR ANT LION. , HEAR the private residence of the honorable member who represents the beautiful suburb of St. Leonards in Parliament, there is a small piece of ground upon the brow of a hill, from whose top one of the most enchant- ing views of Sydney and its surroundings is obtained. At the base of this hill runs a stream of water into a gully, whose course ; presents to the eye one series o£ miniature waterfalls ; the murmuring of the waters as they leap from rock to rock lends to the ear a delightful and refreshing sound, when con- trasted with the busy hum that is wafted now and then from the city. All along this gully, or creek, the bush flowers and ferns grow in great luxuriance, such as would gladden the heart of any botanist ; and then, again, it abounds in romantic spots-in some I places particularly so-and I question whether any spot in the world, so near to a city, places within the reach of those who desire recreation so many peculiar at...

CANCER IN THE EYES OF CATTLE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 27 June 1874

CANCER IN THE EYES OE CATTLE. CANCER of thc eye is not supposed to be infectious. The only remedy would be the removal of the eye, if such were deemed desirable. There is an affection of the eye which seems to be a kind of epizootic. The edge of the eyelid and the caruncle, or small fleshy body placed at the corner of the eye, becomes inflamed, by sympathy with the eye generally, or from some injury to them- selves-; they swell greatly, and the brow is protruded over the eye and cannot return ; ulceration succeeds, and a fangus growth springs up. For' this complaint veterinary authorities recommend the application of a Goulard wash, or dilute tincture of opium. If it appears to be a disease originally of the part itself, the zinc lotion must be diligently used (two grains of white vitriol dissolved in an ounce of water, and the vitriol gradually increased to four grains) ; the application to be confined, as much as possible to the part, and the liquid not being suffered to get to th...

SPREADING MANURE IN WINTER. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 27 June 1874

SPREADING MANURE IN WINTER. WE are asked -what advantage there is ire spreading manure on frozen ground. It de- pends much upon the condition of the ground. If ic is covered with grass, either a pasture or meadow, there is a great advan- tage in more than one respect. The surface is protected from sudden changes during winter, and the first thaw carries the manure I to the roots, where . it causes a vigorous I growth early iii the spring. IO the ground is. ploughed for a spring crop, it is also bene- fited by having the manure ready to be ab- sorbed by the soil whenever the ground, thaws ; the seed, as soon as it sprouts, finds, what it needs close at hand. On sod ground to be ploughed for corn in the spring, the same advantages are gained as in the case of grass lauds, and the manure is on the spot in time, which in a late season it might not be, for want of time or improper condition1 of the ground. But after all, it is far better to get the manure upon the ground before, it is fr...

CALKS ON HORSES' SHOES. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 27 June 1874

I CALKS ON" HORSES' SHOES. * DURING winter, when the roads and yárds ahout a farm are often covered with frost, sharpened calks on horses' shoes are a neces sity. It is absolute cruelty to do Avithout them, not only on account of the risk of damage to the animal, but on account of the painful terror to which some horses are sub ¡ ject. Sometimes they may be seen trembling with fear when trying to keep a footing on j frozen ground. But when horses' feet are thus armed, they become dangerous to themselves and their fellows. They should be very care- fully driven, especially when turning round, and the greatest care should be taken that they are not allowed to get loose in the stable or to frolic in the yard. Most of the blemishes which have injured horses either for Use or in value have happened at this season, and from the above causes. In case a horse should be kicked with a sharpened - shoe, a.deep gash is made, which should be immediately stitched with a curved surgeon's needle, m...

OF ASSIGNMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 25 July 1874

OF ASSIGNMENTS. As the curious in légal lore may be inter- ested in knowing how this used to be effected, I shall give an instance of how Mr. Sneff availed himself of that privilege. Sneff (presenting himself to Mr. Brettle jup)-" Brett, my boy, I've got a job for you." '?: Brettlejup (alertly)-" That's the ticket. Will it stand a good commission ? What is it ? " Sneff-" Oh, there's no pay in it. It's for myself. You know I never pay." Brettlejup (aware of the fact, in an altered tone)-" For yourself ! " Sneff (gaily)-" Yes ; I mean to settle with my creditors-by an assignment. It won't take you long to do the 'fakement,' (by fakement Mr. Sneff playfully meant instru- ment)- will it ? " Brettlejup-" I'm rather busy just now, Sneff ; can you wait for a month or so ? " Sneff-" Not a day. The truth is my creditors are really getting troublesome-" Brettlejup (uneasily)-" My time's at pre- sent so engrossed-" " Sneff-" Engrossing, I suppose." Brettlejup (not laughing at the joke) " It's ...

DEBTORS AND CREDITORS. BY ONE OF THEM. THE VETERAN DEBTOR. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 25 July 1874

DEBTORS AND CREDITORS. BY ONE OF THEM. THE VETERAN DEBTOR. I HAD the pleasure of being acquainted with a medical gentleman of the name of Joyker. He was in good practice, and, in his own per- son, not extravagant ; hut he was always in debt, mainly owing to his being generous and hospitable without stint. Not an institution, for charitable or other good purposes, within twenty miles of his residence, but benefited by his donations and labours : nor did any one ever plead to him for assistance iu vain. He wa3 strictly honourable, and always paid sixty shillings in the pound. He was, like many genial, warm-hearted men, of rather a fiery temper ; and this was readily provoked by creditors, whom he . would, on such occasions, with much fer- vour, consign to a warm domain. A creditor, usually, instead of proceeding" to the place indicated, weut to the Court House and obtained a summons. The con- sequence was, that the doctor was always in conflict with bailiffs, and, being a veteran in t...

Literature. A RIDE ACROSS COUNTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 25 July 1874

literature. - I A EIDE ACROSS COUNTRY. ! I NEVER was a first-rate horseman. I cer- tainly remember that in my boyhood I used to put my little bare legs across the sharp backbone of my father's ancient brown pony, and ride thereon to the Behool of the Misses Birchings, dear good ladies ! whilst a man ran by my side holding in his hand a long rein, one end of which was fastened to the head of;my Rosinante for fear of the animal's . running away, save the mark ! I remember also somewhat later in my life, when my legs were clad in tiny trousers, and I had ad- vanced far enough in my journey towards manhood to wear round jackets, and to make myself occasionally very ill over furtive pipes and penny cigars, I used to delight in ; galloping a second edition of the said pony, bound in black, round and round a small paddock in front of our house, in imitation of Signor Axletreza in his ' ' astounding acts" of horsemanship, or of Herr Von Wonder lich'in his " Demon rider ;" both of which I ha...

No. 2.—J. Douglas. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 25 July 1874

No. 2.-J. Douglas. I AM FORCIBLY CONVINCED by the last long weary session of nine montlis, of the Government's incapacity to adminis- ter the affairs of the country, and I am astounded at their avowed intention, as exemplified in their Electoral Bill, to cur-, tail the suffrages of the people to a mini- mum. Yet, though I am NEITHER A MINISTERIALIST NOR AN . ANTI MlNISTERIALIST, J sliall ahoays be a patriot. And I am of opinion that a POWEBFUL OPPOSITION is essential m parliamentary practice to constitutional government. And the dis- proportionately small Opposition, as com- pared with five overwhelming majority for the Government, scarcely justifies Ministers in going out of their vjay to add more to it. In Trade-J am for a unity of Austral- asian tariffs, federation, and intercolonial I FREE XBASE FOB OURSELVES and fair trade witii the rest of the world.

AU arrangements for opening the new Metropolitan Post Office are expected to be completed this month, when the postal and telegraphic business will be at once trans- ferred to the imposing and commodious edifice in George-street. Female operators will be employed at some of the electric in- struments, all of which, are now fixed. The great clock, too, which was intended to ap- prise all Sydney of the flight of time, but which will hardly effect that work, is being fixed in position at --headquarters.'' The amount of money which the State annually pays towards religious instruction in New South Wales amounts to £20,812, apportioned as follows:-Church of Eng- land, £12,140; Church of Rome, £6000; Presbyterian, £1300 ; Wesleyan, £1372.
