COUNT DE STRZELECKI. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 4 April 1846

COUNT DE STRZELECKI. From the Sydney Herald. It has been our intention from time to time to introduce to our readers generally a very elaborate production from the pen of a gentlemen known toy many of them -a work which has received in England considerable and deserved notice, but which here has been, in some deeree, neglected. We allude to the volume whose title is given below.. To say of this book that it contains vouch interesting and valuable matter; that it exhibits everywhere the marks of a highly cultivated mind, the devotedness of the student and the experience of the master; that it abounds in research and displays a singleness of ptrrpose rarely met with in the compositions of modern authors ; and that it is actually what, it professes to be, is, perhaps, small praise. In these respects it is unrivalled. But it possesses a better claim to the atten tion of Australians, for it is devoted en tirely to the investigation of the pheno mena, productions, and capabilities, of the...

THE POTATO IN NEW SOUTH WALES. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 4 April 1846

THE POTATO IN NEW SOUTH WALES. (From the Sydney Herald.) For the last twelve months at least, the difficulty of getting potatoes that one can eat with satisfhction has been so great, that many shopkeepers, who were accustomed to deal in them, in conjunction with other ta blefurnishing,have uiscontinued doing so. Of late decided symptoms, of decay must have been observed by every dining n.an and that most conspicuously in such pota toes as have the best external appearance. We ourselves, who prefer to have outr pota toes boiled in their jackets, are peculiarly liable to grievous disappointment on that account, for we do not discover the defect until we have cut into the core. We are induced, in the hope of inciting Dr. Camp bell to further investigation, and perhaps of furthering his enquiry, to offer a few ob servations. It is upwards of ten years since the ap pearance of disease in the potato, or at least of degeneracy, attracted or forced it self upon the notice of farmers and wri...
