COWRA. [Newspaper Article] — The Mining Record and Grenfell General Advertiser — 25 July 1868

If they go a-hcad this town will feel an immenso impetus in its trado and general prospects. There . has only been ouo case recently worthy of being spoken about at our police court. John Mooro was summoned for as saulting one J. J. O'Shaushnessy, a boy of 11 years of ago.

FORBES. [Newspaper Article] — The Mining Record and Grenfell General Advertiser — 25 July 1868

FORBES. [PROM OTO OWN CORRESPONDENT,] Tho new reef, about half-a-mi^o from George Field's' publlo-houso, on* the Billa bong, looks extremely well. It is about three feet wldo, aud has boon oponod to a depth of ton fcot. Ten tons of etono havo been carted to Grenfell this woek, to bo crushed, which is expooted to yield 4 ozs to the ton. It Is unfortiinato that tho machine was removed from the Billabong so soon, for there is little doubt, had it been on tbo ground now, suffi cient employment would bo found to retain it in tbo district for a long timo tooomo. Two claims north and two south of tho prospectors aro linking, but neither has yet struck tho I reef. Ono share In tho prosptoung claim hos | been purchased for £150. Thero is some thing singular in tho manner of tlio ditcorcry of this reef, and au illustration is furnished : by it of tho woy in which fortunes are sometimes mado on tho gold-fields by tbo merely superficial examination of a Biirfaco-stone.

FORTUNES MADE BY ADVERTISING. I Fow of our readers, wo boliove, can be I unacquainted with the name of Holloway, I tho greatest of all advertisers. It is not our j purposo to mako any illusions to the proper- ; ties of his Medicines, but rather to show how much can bo dono by energy, industry, and a judicious courso of publicity. Wo aro told that when he commenced tbo salo of bis Me dicines some thirty years ogo, it was on tho smallest possiblo scalo, making bis Pills aud Oiutmont with bis own hands— the latter in a small iron pot. We refer to this fact that some may not look at tbe Professor as ho now stands, a rich and princely merchant, and who might say to themselves, 'All I but who could think of doing as ho has done ?' Wo roply that thousands might1 do almost as much in various ways, keeping in viow Lord Chesterfield's shore, while larger ones may vonturo far'— let your beginning bo on a small and progres sive scale, taking but ono careful upward stop at a time,* and the highe...

LOCAL NEWS OnURCH OF ENGLAND TEA 1 MEETING. On Wednesday evening this event came off, ot tbo English Church, Tho weathor was very unfavourable in the early part of the day, and also tho day or two previous, so that tbo streets wero in a dreadful stato for pedo* strians ; but about 6 o'clook on Wednesday tho raia cleared off, so that persons could venture out.

THE SWAGMAN. [Newspaper Article] — The Mining Record and Grenfell General Advertiser — 25 July 1868

THE SWAGMAN. Trudging on wearily, heavily, drearily,   Parching with thirst on a hot dusty road ; No one to speak a kind word to him cheerily, No one to love him, no place of abode. No change or variety, nought but anxiety Hangs like a cloud o'er the wanderer's track ; Still he's a link in the chain of society, Tho' all he possesses is strapped to his back. Looking forth fearfully, thinking back tear- fully On bright sunny days in his own native land, When leaving a home, he had manfully, cheerfully, Started away for a southerly strand ; Hope fondly smiling, and sweetly beguiling With soft fairy visions his path o'er the sea,   As the waves bore him on to the land he was styling The labourer's refuge, the home of the free. Mark him arriving, and uselessly striving With all his contriving, fair work to obtain ; And often himself of a dinner depriving, To hang on, in hopes that he his end might gain. His money has vanished, all hoping is banished From his min...

HORRIBLE CUSTOM IN ABYSSINIA. BRUCE'S TRAVELS. [Newspaper Article] — The Mining Record and Grenfell General Advertiser — 1 August 1868

HORRIBLE CUSTOM IN ABYSSINIA. [?] It is vory remarkable how many state ments mado by Bruce relating customs, Ac., in Abyssinia, which havo been over and. over again denied by travellers in that country, have been confirmed during rccent years. We recently pointed out that Sir S. Baker's ac hunters, who disable elephants with astonish* ing dexterity by cutting tho tendons of ih-ir hind legs, is but a rechauffe of Bruco's narrative to the same effect, which it would appear Sir S. Baker had not read j and now wo huvo tho evidence of thrco ofllcera of the 4th Regiment, attached to the Abyssinian Expedition, that an operation described by Bruce, but which has been discredited by all subsequent travellers, Is practised to this day. Tho accouut is given by the corres pondent for tbe Standard in a letter to that journal from Abyssinia, and runs' thus: 'Thrco officers of the 4th Regiment saw tho other day at Fokado the operation of cutting a steak from the body of a living ox.

A HEAVY "BAG." [Newspaper Article] — The Mining Record and Grenfell General Advertiser — 1 August 1868

A HEAVY ' BAG.' ' R. Boustead,' surgeon to tbo Abyssinian field forcc, has sent to tbo 1 Field' an account of a day's sport in Abyssinia which eclipses all 1 other African travellers' tales on record. Mr Boustead went out one day, accompanied by a Sboho guido, a dhoolywallab, and a soldier servant. «' Io trvnnrl Urr . lt«n » Tl,. .~t. dior soon knocked up in consequenco of tho trcmondous nature of the country to be clam* bered over, and was loft behind ; and Mr Boustead, finding no lions, proceeded, in con pany with tho Shoh'o and dhoolywallab, to hunt for elephants.

PROTECTIVE RESEMBLANCES AMONG ANIMALS. [Newspaper Article] — The Mining Record and Grenfell General Advertiser — 1 August 1868

PROTECTIVE RESEMBLANCES AMONG ANIMALS. The adaptation of tho'cxternal colouring of 1 animals to their conditions of lifo has long | bsen recognised, and has been imputed either I to an originally created specific peculiarity or | to the direct action of climate, soil, or food, i Where the former explanation has been ac ceptod, it has completely checked inquiry, since wo could never got any furthor than tbe fact of the adaptation. Thero was nothing moro to bo known about tho matter. Tho second explanation was soon found to bo quite inudoquato to deal with all tbe varied phases of the phenomena, and to be. contradicted by mauy well-known facts. For example, wild rabbits are always of grey among grass anu torn, nut wnen tnese rab bits aro domosticatcd, without any chaiigoof olimato or food, they vary Into whito or black, and theso rarioties may bo multiplied to any extent, forming white or black' races.

No title [Newspaper Article] — The Mining Record and Grenfell General Advertiser — 1 August 1868

Oub readers must havo observed the vast inr crease which, during tho last year or so, has ' taken place in tho quartz-reefing branch of gold-mining. I Sinco* the development of tho auriferous I reefs at Emu Creek it would appear as if the I attention of miners had been suddenly turned in this direction. Searccly a week passes but mo hear either of some fresh dtscorcry, or aomo additional operations in reefing. In the Southern and Southwestern districts this is particularly noticcablo, and it is becom ing evident that a new era is about to com mence in gold-mining in New South Wales. Our alluvial rushes havo never been upon that sealo of magultudo or richness that thoio in tho neighbouring colony of Victoria liavo been ; benco it has come to be the generally* received opinion that our mineral riches are entiroly secondary to those of that colony, and that New South Wetes has been pretty well used up as a gold-producing country. ''Forthcoming events cast their shadows boforo ;' and, i...
