Sporting. BUYING HORSES.—TRICKS OF DEALERS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 28 March 1868
jlportag. BUYING HOUSES.— TRICKS OF DEALERS. Every Englishman believes that he is a judge of a horse. His vanity may not lead him so far as to suppose that his judgment may not be controverted, but he believes that, as a Briton, the love and knowledge of horse-flesh is inborn ?with him. Every, young man will look know ingly at a steed as he passes along the street, and will venture small hints, chiefly of a dis paraging nature, with respect to his friend's nag. But ask the same man his opinion of a cow, and he will laugh at the idea, of his being expected to have any opinion at all upon such a matter. Many a man looks far more critical than he really is in such matters, and, as a consequence, takes his friends in. There is nothing like a little cunning reticence in such affairs. Assume a virtue if you have it not, seems to be the weakness of us all where horse flesh is concerned. If a man will only seem to be knowing with many he will -succeed. Sir Emerson Tennent, in his work on Ce...

|ieajp anft ISresrng&ns. Cubing Meat.— The Editor of the German, town Telegraph gives the following as the in gredients for a pickle for meat : — 1 gaL water, l£ 1b. salt, l£ lb. sugar,' li oz. saltpetre, £ oz. potash. Observing this ratio, the pickle can be increased to any quantity desired. Boil these together until all the dirt from the sugar rises to the top and is skimmed off. Then throw it) into a tub to cool, and when cold pour it over your Deer or porK, to remain tne usual tune, say four or five weeks. The meat must be well covered with pickle, and should not be put down for at least two days after ViTKn^ during which time it should be slightly sprinkled with powdered saltpetre, which removes all the sur face blood, &c., leaving the meat fresh and clean. Some omit boiling the pickle, and find it to answer -well, though the operation of boiling purifies the pickle by throwing off the dirt always to be found in salt and sugar. -r - To Protect Dried Fruit prom W...
BEES. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 28 March 1868
BEES. TO THE EDITOR. Sir — Having already written upon bees and honey, I have now to inform you how they may be preserved through the winter. The system I have adopted lately will, if properly carried out, ensure their safety, though it may iMsen the number of hives. Let the apiarian exa mine all boxes in his possession and ascertain if any are full of comb or nearly so, with about twelve or fourteen pounds of honey, as from all those not coining up to this standard the bees should be taken out and united to one with the honey, putting at least two swarms together, as their numbers are but small. Having got the bees into separate boxes ready to unite, proceed in the following man!! ner : — Turn the hive upside down, using a littli smoke to prevent being stung, having a basin with two wine-glasses full of water, one of vinegar, and a tablespoonful of sugar. Mix all together and sprinkle over the bees, thus bring ing them all into one smell, which prevents fighting. Ihe operator must ...
DENOMINATIONAL STATISTICS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 28 March 1868
IDENoiMrtifATlONAL STATISTICS, The annual report of the English. Regis trar-Geiieral on the sects into which the ? religious community is divided is rather an interesting document. In this colony ?we have a pretty -fair representation of denominations. Mr. Boothby gives nine teen religious bodies in hia almanac, but some of these may be subdivided. The English Registrar, nowever, publishes a list of no less than ninety-two sects, in cluding, it might be thought, almost every shade of religion which civilised men ever professed. But, in addition to these, ihere is a column of sects who repudiate any distinctive -name, and the Registrar labors hard to designate them in some way which will preserve their individuality. It is a misuse of words to speak of a sect as a 'denomination*' which has no -name, and yet this the Registrar has to do. Think of the difficulty of cataloguing and labelling ' Christians who object to be otherwise designated.' Some of the designations assumed by religio...

THE DESTITUTE POOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 28 March 1868
THE DESTITUTE POOR. Mr. T. S. Reed, Chairman of the Desti tute Board, has presented his half-yearly report, for tne latter half of 1867, to the Government. The document is in many respects a painful one, and shows an amount of : destitution which ought not to exist in a young community like ours. Of course in any community, however prosperous it may be, there will be- a certain percentage of the .population de pendent on public support. Helpless widows, orphans; aged, diseased, and im becile persons who cannot care for them selves will have to be cared, for. JV-r these a national provision will have to be made. But there are other persons who have been availing themselves of Government support who ought to have been able to provide for themselves. It is a difficulty in all civilised nations to distinguish between the poor and needy and the improvident and indolent. The latter often avail themselves of the pro vision which is intended solely for the former. We are glad, therefore, to...
THE MEAT PRESERVING COMPANY. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 28 March 1868
THE MEAT PRESERVING COMPANY. TO THE EDITOR; Sir— The slowness and apathy of the people of South Australia is becoming worse and worse. The times are confessedly the dullest the colony ever saw, and yet if any one comes forward and suggests the establishment of a new industry, which would benefit the entire community, and one' depressed class in par ticular, ne meets with little or no support. - So long as he chooses to give his time and trouble io the work, he may do so ; and if he can carry out anything by his unaided exertions, well and good, he will ' deserve the thanks of the com munity' — whether he will receive them is quite another thing. Others will be willing enough to step in and reap the benefit of his exertions, but few will give any assistance or substantial encouragement to his labors. I have been endeavoring for two months past to start a meat-preserving establishment; in fact, I suggested the idea to a few friends long before Mr. J. B. Hughes moved in the matter in M...

Clerk of the Course— Mr. F. TattersalL So far as regards the metropolis, the curtain has fallen on the racing season pf 1867-8. Opening with extraordinary brilliancy with the spring meetings of the Australian Jockey Club and the Victoiia Racing Club, the ball was kept merrily rolling until Saturday last, March 21st, when the Victoria Racing Club held their autumn, meeting ; and we can conscientiously assert that a more miserable finale to our racing season it has never been our lot to assist at. The prizes were poor, the attendance scanty, and the racing below mediocrity. The attendance on the flat was meagre in the extreme, the hill likewise being but poorly patronised ; and at no time-during the day could there have been more than 2,000 persons present, most of whom journeyed by the road. Appended ...
