MISCELLANEA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 November 1865
MISCELLANEA. . : ' } CEMENTS.-The term cement includes all th ose substances employed for the purpose of causing the adhesion of two or more bodies, whether originally separate, or divided by an accidental fracture. As the substances that are required to be connected together are exceedingly various, and differ very much in their properties as to. texture, &c. ¿tc, and as the conditions under which they are placed, with regard to heat and moisture, are also exceedingly variable, a num- ber of cements, possessed of very different pro- perties, are required ; for a cement that answers admirably under one set of circumstances, may be perfectly useless in others. A vast number of cements are known and used in the various arts. The different parts of a solid arc held together by an attraction between their seve- ral particles, which is termed the attraction of cohesion, or cohesive attraction. The amount of this varies with the substances ; thus, the cohesion of the particles of ...

LITERATURE. WOONOONA. AN AUSTRALIAN TALE OF THE CITY AND THE BUSH. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 November 1865
LITERATURE WÖONÖONA. AN AUSTRALIAN TALE OP'THE CITY A VT» THB Throw BY F. 8. WILSON. (CONTINUED FROM OUR LAST.) T the commencement of this brief dialogue, Ar thur bounded to the door, and upraising the ponderous bar that guarded it, it flew back, admittmg the young squatter, Denisher, who reeled in with his hair dishevelled and his clothes rent and bedab- bled with clay, as if he had been engaged in some recent conflict . ' ' What is your business here?" demanded Arthur, sternly eyeing the un- welcome intruder. ' ' To make some repara- tion for the injuries I have done you," answered Denisher. " You will not believe me?" "Belave it, is it? " rejoined the Irishman, "shure, an it is rather difficult to belave that, anyway. Howsever, hand us over that pop-gun of yourn, for fear it might go oft7 and shoot some iv us by mishtake !" Denisher relinquished his fowling-piece into Larry's hands, and continued :-'* "Well, I don't wonder at you doubting me. I know you have received nothing but ...
POETRY. WAITING BY THE GATE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 November 1865
POETRY. 1 . . WAITING BY THE GATE. BY WILLIAM CULLEN BRYANT. .. BESIDE a massive gateway, built up in years gone by, - Upon whose top the clouds in eternal shadows lie, ' While streams the evening sunshine on quiet wood and lea, I stand and calmly wait till the hinges turn for me. ' The tree tops faintly rustle beneath the breeze's flight, A soft and soothing sound, yet it whispers of the night ; I hear the woodthrush piping one mellow descant more, And scent the flowers that blow when the heat of day is o'er. Behold the portals open, and o'er the threshold, now, There steps a weary one with a pale and furrowed brow, His count of years is full, his allotted task is wroxtght, He passes to his rest from a place that needs him not. In sadness then I ponder how quickly fleets the hour Of human strength and action, man's courage and his power. j I muse while still the woodthrush sings down the golden day, | And as I look and listen the sadness wears away. Again the hinges turn, and a you...
BUSH FIRE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 November 1865
BUSH FIRE. I IT IS one of the misfortunes, and also one of the excitements of country life m Australia, that we are liable, in the dry season, to wide-spread conflagrations, due, not always to the careless- ness of mankind, though that is frequently the primary cause of the bush tires, but to purely natural causes. The friction of twodnedup branches,may, any day, when all nature in the season of drought is as combustible as tinder, make a fire a hundred miles long. The drought of the present season has given rise to bush fires on the , grandest scale, traces of which, in che scorched and blackened gums, are-to be seen throughout a vast tract of country, particularly in the Western District, and on the coast near Twofold Bay. The oppressive heat occasioned by the burning forest is something to think of with a shudder. Yet it is curious to note the rapidity with which the country recovers its freshness, and the forest its _ never green verdure,' by which a discontented writer is pleas...

EXTRAORDINARY HAIL FALL ON BOARD THE SCHOONER MARYANN, AT NEWCASTLE. - -[SKI PAGE 13. EXTRAORDINARY HAILEALL. THE strange phenomenon to which our illustration refers occurred during the night of the 11th ultimo, off the port of Newcastle, whilst the schooner Maryann was standing off Nobby's, a light breeze blowino at the time, a sudden fall of hailstones took place, completely filling up tile deck ot the schooner to the top-raü on the lee side, and laying her on her beam ends. It took all hands nearly three hours with shovels to clear the deck of what, in many cases, proved to be large irregular pièces of ice, which had been deposited in such a mass in little more than fifteen minutes, No portion of the hail storm in question fell on sliore
WESTERN AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 November 1865
WESTERN AUSTRALIA. Three convicts, who, in March last, escaped from the Vasse, by being stowed away on board the Vortigern, have been cap- tured by the Bombay authorities, and will be kept in confine- ment until instructions are received respecting them. No trace has been found of the blacks by whom Mr. Clarkson was murdered. The annual show of the York Agricultural Society was held on the 2Gth ultimo. Three convicts named Watkins, Wootton, and Smith, recently escaped from the works near North Freemantle. They cut,the hawser of'the ferry-boat, so as to frustrate pursuit, and made towards Rocky Bay. The police, accompanied by some pension- ers, soon overtook the runaways, and safely lodged them in Freemantle gaol. A new congregational ch apel has been opened at Perth. The Governor and his Lady were present on the occasion. The building of a Masonic Hall at Perth has been projected by some of the craft residing there.. From the new settlement at Roebuck Bay, the De Gray, ancL Tien Tsi...

VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 November 1865
VICTORIA. There appears to be very, little hope of a satisfactory solution of difficulties existing between the two branches of the Legis- lature. The "Upper House having thrown aside the Tariff is alleged as a cause why a conference is unlikely to remedy the objections urged by the Legislature. The Treasurer reports that the Tariff and Appropriation Bills will be sent up to the Council separately, and if the former is not passed, the Govern- ment will, under the provisions of an Act now in force, continue to levy the new duties. A large and influential meeting of the inhabitants of Sale has been held, for the purpose of considering the desirability of rail, ?way communication being established between Sale and Mel- bourne. Several influential gentlemen spoke at length, and the project was favourably entertained. The monster nugget recently found at Dunnolly is giving rise to a good deal of litigation. It is alleged by the plaintiffs that they were at work in the claim in which the ...
