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

BELGIAN HUSBANDRY. OTHER farmers might take a lesson from tho Belgian agriculturists in their prodi- gious care of manure-no wasteful exhala- tion, no neglect of the liquids which enrich the soil. We might almost say that the Bel- gian farmer is a reverential worshipper of manure. It is his idol, his treasury. In the first place, there is the manure produced in the cattle-sheds. No cow is allowed to go about in the open air. All stay withindoors, and liquids which we too ofteu see running to waste, are carefully conducted into covered tauks. Neither is the solid part allowed to be in the open air.; it is covered from sun and rain, which destroy the ammoniacal salts, and trodden by three or four young cattle during the winter. In addition, the farmer collects from his ditches and. streams aquatic plants, which he mixes with the manure, or uses them at once to hasten the growth of the potato. He sends to a dis- tance for the mud dredged from canals, aud lime ; in the nearest town he b...

HORSE-BREEDING FOR HUNTING PURPOSES. NOTES BY SCRUTATOR. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 25 July 1874

HÖRSE-BREEDING FOR HUNT- ING PURPOSES. NOTES BY SCRUTATOR. . WITH regard to the quantity of corn to be allowed to each horse, the best rule to ob serve is to feed according to the work he has to undergo. Some horses will require more than others, and thc age and constitution must be taken into account, but-from three to six quarterns a day will generally be found ample. Some grooms think their horses eau never have enough, and keep stuffing them nearly all day long ; this will . only have the effect of keeping the animal in a feverish state. The best plan for putting horses into con- dition is to give them plenty of walking and gentle exercise at first-say for a month or six weeks, during which tim'; they may re- quire one or two doses of physic. I seldom give any horse moro than two, some not more . ' than one, during this period of preparation, regulating their corn according to their work, which, after all, I consider of the greatest importance ; for if a horse when first taken u...

SPLINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 22 August 1874

SPLINTS. SPLINTS in well bred horses are becoming very common, especially in animals set early to hard work. The word splint is a term denoting a bony enlargement in the leg be- tween the knee and fetlock, but there are also other enlarge- ments occurring here besides those called splints. Horses which lift the foot, especially the fore foot, against the Lsg produce au enlargement.. This latter swelling is always soft, and may easily be distinguished from a true splint. -It is not, however, with the cause of such injuries that we are chiefly concerned. They occur to most animals, and feW owners know why. They are the cause of great lameness, but it is a very strange kind of lameness. An animal will be tremendously lame when he trots, and not lame at all when he walks, which peculiarity distinguishes this seat of lameness from all others. This fact is important, and; I will state the reason why it is so. An animal may be very lame, and it may be the splint which is laming him, andyet...

HORSE-BREEDING FOR HUNTING PURPOSES. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 22 August 1874

HORSE-BREEDING EOR HUNTING PURPOSES. NOTES BY " SCRUTATOR." I THE usual appliances in dressing and cleaning a horse are a currycomb and brush, wisp of hay, and dry cloth, with a sponge and water-brush for thc*feet, and a small comb for the mane and tait With horses of fine coats, or with those which have been clipped, thc currycomb is too rough to be often used, unless where dirt or clay tenaciously adheres to the hair, and then it should bc applied with a very light band on the surface only, so as not to scratch the skin ; it is more properly adapted to clean thc brush only, the usc of .which is indispensable to keep the coat free from dirt and scurf. Thc clothing should be adapted to the season of the year as well as thc temperature of the stable ; and it is far pre- ferable to have a cool stable and more clothing than a hot one with less. Uutil the weather becomes cold and chilly, à linen cloth is thc best, and quite sufficient for any horse. When the winter bas fairly set in, th...

NEW JEWISH SYNAGOGUE AND SCHOOL, SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 22 August 1874

NEW JEWISH SYNAGOGUE AND SCHOOL, SYDNEY. THIS very attractive and beautifully designed structure is already in a forward condition, the basement contract having been finished some time since and tenders received for the main work of erecting the building after the style shown in our engraving. The site occupies a frontage to both Eliza- beth and Castlereagh streets, running from one to the other, the measured area being 64 feet by a depth of 140 feet, the whole of which will be entirely covered in with the exception of a small open space between the Synagogue proper and school inside. The building will measure 82 by 60 feet, and is calculated to afford accommodation for 1020 worshippers, the ground floor being apportioned to gentlemen and the gallery to ladies of the congregation.

ON SELECTING MALE ANIMALS FOR BREEDING. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 22 August 1874

ON SELECTING M AXE ANIMALS FOR BREEDING. THE National Live Stock Journal, in commenting on the fact that bulls (no matter what their breed) who are unfortu- nate to have curly hair upon their heads and necks cannot be sold at anything like fair prices, remarks as follows : " Every cut found in standard works represents the bull with a short head, shorter than the cow, and the forehead covered with an abundance of thick, curly hair. To say nothing of the teaching of science as to the matter we are considering, it would seem to be, to all practical men, a self-evident proposition that a strong constitution, with full masculine development and vigour, are most important points to consider in selecting a male animal for breeding, not only because we want this vigour in the offspring, but because such an animal is much more impressive or prepotent as a sire, that is, much more likely to transmit his character'mtict to hi» progeny than an animal of a feminine and delicate form and quality...

No title [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 22 August 1874

It is estimated that since the Peace of 1783 and down to end of 1873 there have been 8,779,174 aliens landed in the j United States, emigrants arrived from various parts of the j world. Various estimates have been made of the amount of I money brought into the country by immigrants. The late ! John A. Kennedy, for many years Superintendent at Castle i Garden, found it about 68 dois, per head for a given period, j Placing it at only 50 dois., we have 444,000,000 dois, as the j result up to this time. But the far greater value consists in the labour brought into the country, a very large proportion of which goes to build up new territories and states in the West. THE FIGURE FIVE.-Any number of figures you may wish to multiply by 5 will give the same result if divided by 2, a much quicker operation, but you must remember to annex a cipher to the answer when there is no remainder, and when there is a remainder, whatever it may be, annex a 5 to the answer. Multiply 464 by 5, and the answ...

MOLASSES AND CORN FOR STOCK. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 22 August 1874

MOLASSES AND CORN FOR STOCK. THE effect of molasses upon stock-horses, cattle, sheep, pigs, ami poultry-is to put flesh upon them, and improve their looks generally. In some cases it is given without any preparation whatever. It is simply put out in buckets or tanks, and the stock are allowed to eat at their pleasure. In other cases it is given with cut or chopped hay, corn stalks, bran, &c. Animals usually soon acquire a taste for molasses, but seldom eat much of it at a time. When mixed with hay or maize stalks, a cow will take about 1 lb. of molasses at a feed, and a horse nearly as much, but seldom more. A good way to give it is to mix it with warm water in cold weather and sprinkle it over the feed. In conjunction with molasses, corn fodder is very valua- ble, and it can be brought into use at a time when other feed is scarce-that is, from October to the end of the yeal'. It can also be prepared for winter feeding iu tho same way as hay. For this purpose prepare the lau...

Literature. "NUMBER NINETY-SEVEN KENT-STREET " [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 22 August 1874

Literature. "NUMBER NINETY-SEVEN KENT-STREET " THE 24th December, 1853, was a very hot day—not a doubt of it—the hottest day ever known in Australia. The sky was cloudless, silvery blue in colour ; the atmosphere un- grateful, thin, and visibly trembling with irradiated fire. Weary pedestrians shrunk from the glare and scorching heat of the sun, and sought shelter under the awnings of shops or in tavern bars, moistly wondering why the Council's navvies in the streets outside were not reduced to little moving rivulets of molten humanity. On the southern Racecourse, at Park-street corner, and near to the large city fountain, where casks were leaking, and watermen were wroth with loosened hoops and seams that would not close—cooper them as they might, white-haired specimens of civic slavery sat pulverizing chunks of green-black basalt in momentary anger of disappearing under the growing heaps of diamonds in a state of greasy fluidity. Beyond, in the quarries under Darlinghurst, yellow-...

THE HUNT OF THE KANGAROO. 8URRAH for tho chaso whoso porilous paco Outstrips that of fox or dcor, Whore the horsemon shout, and the woods ring out C¿og .

"HOW WE WENT SELECTING." [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 22 August 1874

"HOW WE WENT SELECTING." BY AN IMMIGRANT PROM VICTORIA. Oma sketch, on page 12 is characteristically illustrative of the state of affairs in Riverina, as it represents a scene which may be often witnessed in that district at the present time. A selector has just brought his family to the land he has taken up under the free selection system prevailing in New South Wales, and, with his wife, children, horses, cattle, and household goods, has camped for the first night on the site of his future home. The selector in this case had been a farmer for some years in Victoria, but was induced by circumstances to shift his quarters to this side of the Murray. The how and the wherefore of his adventure will be best understood from the following narrative penned by himself : " Well, wife," said I, one day not very long ago, " it is a good many years since we agreed to bear each other company in the journey of life, and looking back on the road, there are very few of its scenes or incidents but ...

WHEN the machinery intended to revolu- tionize the whole mining industry of New South Wales was turned out as perfect from the Legislative workshop in Mac quarie-street, that section of the com- munity most interested were jubilant that the attention they had for years demanded was at length given to them, and trusted that the Government would also select an experienced and competent Minister to direct its operations; but these hopes were very rudely dashed away when it became known that His Excellency's favour had been successfully solicited in the interest of Mr. R. P. Abbott, the hitherto not very prominent member for Tenterfield. It is needless to say that the appointment has not met with particular favour in any of the mining districts, and the only reason adducible why Mr. Abbott was not more strongly opposed is th...

MESSES. JOHN FRASER AND CO.'S BONDED STORES, SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 22 August 1874

MESSES. JOHN FRASER "AND CO.'S BONDED STORES, SYDNEY. THESE buildings, which are situated in O'Connell-street, occupy a frontage of 64 feet, by a depth of 100 feet. The front elevation ia executed entirely in highly wrought masonry of tile moat massive and substantial character. In the lower, or ground story, columns with moulded bases and richly carved capitals, support arches with enriched key- stones and boldly rusticated' arch stones, with deep sunk joints, the whole surmounted by a handsome cornice. Con- siderable novelty of effect is given to the openings of the first and second floors, by tiie mode in which they are coupled together, as if belonging to one story, the inter- vening floor being placed behind the moulded and carved ? band which is introduced midway up the opening. This arrangement produces a unity of design and a loftiness of character not otherwise to be attained in buildings where of necessity the stones are but of moderate height. The win- dows of the top sto...
