SYDNEY SUMMARY. MONDAY morning. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and Chronicle — 23 November 1864
SYDNEY SUMMARtY. MoanAr morning. Acconnrto to my calculation there are at present thirty-five ministerialists, forty-three oppositionists, and twenty-two doubtful candidates in the field. Supposing the returns to be in the same proportion the present ministry would have a better chance of holding office than to many people appears to be the case. From among members who are at first classed as doubtful it is generally found the govern ment of the day obtain more recruits than the oppo sition-and for very obvious reasons. And again the cross-benches will oftener be found voting for than against the government. I think we may then safely give the ministry fifteen of these doubtful characters and seven to the opposition. This would give the government fifty followers and fifty op ponents. Of course these are the proportions only not the exact numbers, because there are not so many members in the House. But we may say that as nearly as possible there will be a half-and-half Assembly. And...

IRRIGATION OF FLOWER BEDS. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and Chronicle — 26 November 1864
IRRIGAETION OF FLOVWER BEDS. (Fronm tlheo Gardenrs' Chonice.) TH? present season will long be remembered by those who are interested in the cultiva tion of the soil, and especially by those who hIave the ears and responsibility of largo gar dens resting upon.themn, in consequenco of its excessivo dryness, and the incessant labour which lhas beeoon consequently entailed in dispensing water with the necessary liberality to the flower beds, borders, &c. The practical amateurs and all lovers of flowers, and, indeed, horticulturists generally, will have data of their own, based upon some difficulty, disappointment, or want of success, to bring to their recollec tion the dry season of 1861; and it msay be that each individualll will economise to the best of his ability, and will husband thle re sources at his command in the shape of water and of labour in applying it, in order to pro duce the best effect accor:ing to lis means. No doubt the thoughts of some iigemious minds may bri...
COWS FOR THE DAIRY. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and Chronicle — 26 November 1864
COWS FOR THE DAIRY. (From the Au.,stralasioa.) TrE visitor at the show last weeko, who first inspected the many fine lots of butter and the very good-loolking cheeses entered for the board's special prizes, must have been sadly dissappointed on going to the yard to see the animals from which the raw material is obtained. Of all the cattle classes, that for cows is invariably the meost unsatisfactory, not in regard to numbers, for thero are generally plenty of entries of one kind or other, but in regard to the want of character in the specimens put forward aO the best of thoso we haveo for dairy purposes. This class always contains a most hoteroge neous collection of animals, from a pedigree shorthorn down to a veritable scrubber, the latter often showing better for milk than its more aristocratic relative; but a really good dairy cow of any of the breeds or varioties recognised as excelling for the production of either milk or cream, is seldom seeoon in this part of the yard. Some o...
IMPOUNDING FROM FREE SELECTIONS. To the Editor of the Herald and Chronicle. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and Chronicle — 26 November 1864
IMIPOUNDING FROMI FREE SELECTIONS. To the Editor of the Iferald and Chronicle. Sim,--Allow mo through tile columns of your nows paper, to utter one note of warning to my fellow electors of this district. Mioro particularly I address myself to those who are free selectors. Let no candidate who offers, pass by the aid of your votes, from either his station, his shop, or his co.nting-houso, into the seductive and coveted dignities of our parliament house, unless he dis inctly pledges himself to the support (and intro sction if necessary) of a now and just impounding bill, one clause of which shall, without any mincing of the matter, allow a free selector to impound, both from his selected lands, and adjoining proe-emptiveo rights. If this is not done, all that large and reospectable class may live to regret it. Your obodient servant, FREE SELECTOR.
CATTLE-BREEDING. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and Chronicle — 26 November 1864
CA'ITLE-]RgEEDING. (From the Field.) Ir weo are to tako thile pricos obtained by some eminent breeders of cattlet s a standard of commercial vanlue, it would appeaonr, tlhn, that cattle-breeding is a most profitablo oc cupation. It is not, however, the lot of evoeryone to attain to a high distinction, and thile great Imass of those who are agriculturists must be content with a much lower estimnto for the value of their stock. What is it, then, that has raised animals of this descrip tion to such a condition as to realizo what must almost be considered ftbulous prices ? The answer is simple enoughl. The price is derived from the breed. It halns been found by experience that certain points in an animal are necessary to constituto iwhat may be termeda standard of goodness. To attain to this has been the aim of those who have studied the subject. IHence at first, animals were taken having a near approach to tihe required conditions. In the course of the process, by the principle of SQlc...

CHOWLER IN AUSTRALIA. (To the Editor of the Daily News.) [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and Chronicle — 26 November 1864
CIIOWLER IN AUSTRtALIA. (To the Editor of tlhe Daily News.) SIn,--The redoubtable "Chow'ler " and his brother protectionists have recently turned up at the antipodes. After waiting in grim silonco for the anticipated fulfilment of their dismal croakings respecting the unsound ness of our free-trade system, and finding that they had ceased to be regarded as pro phots in their own country, oven by the most credulous of the bucolic disciples who for merly squatted in meek submission at their feet, listening with admiration, not unmixed with gaping awe, to the oracular sentences which, with rough, huslky jerks escaped from their lips, they solemnly bado farewell to the land of tleir birth. WVith a mournful indignation they wiped the dust from their shoes and departed, Ulysses-like, in searcll of adventuroes; but no HIomer has recorded in heroic strains the strange and wondrous voyagos of Chowlor and his brother exiles; how they sought the shores of the fierce Yahoo, or shivered amid the...

THE COMING ELECTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and Chronicle — 26 November 1864
THE COMIING ELECTIONS. .Froml the EmpireC.) TiE political alliance now subsisting be tween the squatters, the protectionists, and the ndvocates of state-aid, is sufficiently formidable to be dangerous to the welfare of the colony. Either of the three sections ot which it is composed would be unable of itself to secure the return of its candidates in the pending elections; but united, there is much reason to fear that some of the least intelligent of the constituencies will fall a prey to a designing and crooked policy; and judging from the present aspect of things, there is much danger that for the next year or two we shall havo a succession of very bitter party contests. The action of the squatting party in making common cause wvith the protectionists at this period is full of significance and forebodes evil. It is prompted by a double motive. In the first place there is a dread on the part of the squatters thalt unless an increased revenue can be obtained by means of customs' duti...
OUR FINANCIAL POSITION MADE WORSE BY THE PRESENT MINISTRY. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and Chronicle — 26 November 1864
OUR FINANCIAL POSITION MIADE WORSE BY THIE PRESENT 3MINISTRY. (From WIedmnday'S 8. M. ferald.) Mn. EAoan hlas now given us somewhat moro in detail what MIr. Forstor gave us in round numbers. Thle deficit for the present year, so far as it can be calculated, will be very nearly, though not quite £400,000. Thile exact deficit for nlast year, and which may be considered as the legacy bequeathed by the late ministry, was £389,822 ls. 10d. This deficit was the product mainly of 1803, but the previous year had contributed something to it. The disproportion, how ever, between the revenue and expenditure was far greater in 1803 than in any previous year. The deficit grew very rapidly to wards the close of Mr. Cowper's govern menit, and Mr. Smart's announcement of its anmount no doubt took the cabinet by sur prise. As a matter of fact, too, thie deficit lad not actually accrued when Mr. Cowper was turned out; but the obligation had been entered into which rendered it unavoidable. Thile defic...
