My Holiday Trip to Victoria and Tasmania. [CONTINUED.] [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 2 April 1870

THE PALLS, MOUNT WELLINGTON, TASMANIA. My Holiday Trip to Victoria and Tasmania. [CONTINUED.] lOBEiTLY admired the scenery from every point or Tiew. But time waa flying, and we had a journey before us ; therefore, I was compelled to abandon its contemplation. So we passed through a succession of iraen pastures, flower gardens, and bop plantations, »long roadways deep sunk amidst high banks with over hanging oaks, quivering ash, canary wattle blossoms, eonvolvuli, oreoping woodbine, and English honey suckle, foroing sweet essences through thom all. Some »raes the banks opened abruptly, leaving patches of green sward and peeps through still sequestered gates into the park or paddock of some rural magnato ; new Jalas or old manor houses, or lawny uplands knitting together as it were Tasmania's free-born hopes- the old wnd with its young people ; for the land bears every «Ken and semblance of age, even in its cultivation, to "y nothing of the venerable aspect of its wild bush. Yet the p...

LITERATURE. Notices of New Publications. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 2 April 1870

LITERATURE. Notices of New Publications:v AUSTRALIAN SONGS AND POEMS. By Frederick Syd ney Wilson. Gibbs, Shallard, and Co., Sydney. MAXY of our readers have, doubtless, met with detached songs and poems from, the pen of F. S. Wilson. He has for some years been a contributor of occasional pieces to various colonial publications, and has established a reputation of a not indefinite kind amongst lovers of poetry. He has considerable facility of versification, and an oxtensivo vocabulary of words and phrases-qualities which, when possessed in large measure, have a great deal to do in the formation of the poetical character. Of course ono may possess these qualities largely, and still bo far from xeachinsr the true poetical standard, as established by the unanimous consent of people of feeling and taste. Fluency of expression and facility of versification, as well as large powers of imagination, depth of thought, and sensibility _ to * outward impressions are essential in the compositio...

Mining Items. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 2 April 1870

Mining Items. "We hear from Burrangong that the wot weather of late has greatly retarded the operations of tho Belmore Mining Company, in consequence of the principal part of the work having to be done in an open cutting. The rails on which the trucks run, for con veying the dirt from the face have been extended on trestles, a distance of about twenty-five feet along the bank of the creek, and the, face has been pushed a few feet further. The stripping is now being carried on a level. The spring water is getting very heavy, and keeps two hand pumps at work in the cutting Arrange ments are being made, and are almost completed for fixing a new pump in the cutting, to be driven by rods connected with the engine. As soon as this is douo the stripping whioh is now being carried over the washdirt will be deepened, and something definite will be known, as regards the prospects, and depth of wash. The Pioneer machine, after a long rest, has enlivened the town again by its rattle. It has bee...

"Neow capt'n," said lie, " jest you raise yer kelliok end let us get ciar of this infernal placo." Indeed they were all glad to got away.

As luck would have it, the monthly mail from England brought -¿ho intelligence of the comparativo failure of the crops of tho Baltic and Block Sea coasts ; and that in consequence, .the price of wheat had risen considerably in the London market The Yankee had bought at easy rates a, week before the 'arrival bf the nows.

Household Recipes. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 2 April 1870

Household Recipes. A NICE BREAKFAST DISH.-Boil half a dozen eggs hard ; cut them in halves, and cover them with sausage meat, making up into halls. Fry them a rich brown, and serve with a good gravy. I have always found this dish greatly appreciated by epicures. APPLE IN JELLY.-Peel and quarter some good ren nets, and take out the core. Cook them with just water enough to cover them, some shoes of lemon, and clarified sugar, until they are soft. Take out the pieces of apple with great care, not to break tho pieces, and arrange them in the jars; Then boil the syrup until it will jelly, and pour it over tht pieces of apple. LEMON HONEYCOMB.-This is a very simple dish, and one that makes a pleasant variety on the supper-table. The juice of a lemon should be sweetened to the taste, and put into the dish in which it will be served up. The white of an egg is beaten into a pint of rich orcam, with a little sugar, and whisked. As the froth rises, it should be placed on the lemon-juice, and ...

MAITLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 2 April 1870

MAITLAND. March 24.-The death by drowning of poor James McLauchlin and John McFayden are peculiarly distressing and painful. "With regard to the last named party, McFay den, I cannot say that I was personally known to him but the universal testimony of those who did know him is that he was an industrious workman, a good husband, a kind father, in a word, a good citizen. The late Mr. James McLauchlin I know well, and it is with difficulty that I can bring myself to realize that he is now no more. It was only on Saturday last that I was speaking to him at his own door in High-street, respecting the progress of the back water towards his baker's shop. He had only then just returned from a boating cruise, and was cheerful and hopeful, as was   his habit. Although naturally of a quiet and retiring disposi tion, he was a kind, genial soul, and was universally liked and respected. His death will cause a blank not easily filled up. I deeply regret to add he has left a wife and ...

Aquatics. HICKEY V. RUSH FOR £350. THE long-talked of matoh between William Hickey, of Newcastle, and Michael Rush, of the Clarence River, f/OB decided on Saturday afternoon last. This race has for some time past created considerable stir in aquatio circles, and drew together a larger assemblage than we have witnessed for some years. The doings of Hickey are so well known to our readers that it is unnecessary here to refer to them. Bush, on the other hand, was almost if not entirely unknown to fame, until the last Anniversary Regatta, .when he ohipped his, shell on the waters of Port Jaokson, and m his maiden effort sucoeeded in appro propriating to himself the race for all bona fide amateurs, easily disposing of his opponents. On the same day, with Coulon, another resident of the Clarence, ho pulled off the race for all men rowing two pairs of sculls in light skiffs, beating, with the utmost case, Lyons and O'Connell, two weU known scullers. He next appeared with Coulon in a simila...
