TO PRESERVE THE COLOR OF HAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 18 October 1860

TO PRESEßVE THE COLOR OF HAY. oo- I As the season for cutting down the hay crop ap- proaches, it will not bo out of place to offer a few remarks on tho best mode of making good hay. Tho great and important secret of making first class hay.so far as the treatment of it after it is cut down is concerned, consists in drying it sufficiently to keep well iii the stack, without exposing it in t(io field to too much sun-or rather to any sun at nil. If hay could bo dried in tho shailo it would bo all good, but as that is impossible, we must as far as practicable act upon the principle :of exposing as little of it as wo can help to the blpaebiug influences of the' Bun. But what the fanner has most to fear in the hay season, is rain. Nothing does so much injury to hay as alternate rain and sunshine. A few days'' showers with intervals of sunshine, ruins tho hay crop most completely. Tho fal mer fears tho dis- coloring of his hay because he knows that its market price will ho less, although th...

THE MERCURY. THURSDAY MORNING, OCT. 18TH, 1860. [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 18 October 1860

THE MERC CE Y. THURSDAY MORNIKG, OCT. ISTII. 180O. ALTHOUGH as a Legislative power the first Parliament assembled under the New Constitu- tion may probably be considered defunct, we believe it will be formally called together once moro before its final dissolution. No very clear explanations have yet been givcu of the inten- tions of government on this subject. But the most likely course for Ministers to pursue, and under all the circumstances the most judicious, is easily indicated. Jx is not the constitutional practice to make great chauges in the law, for which there is no pressing necessity, just on the eve of a dissolution. It is especially not the practice in dealing with questions of great public moment, upon which public opinion his had no recent opportunity of expressing itself. It is felt to be expedient to gain, as a safe guide to projected changes, the latest sense of the con* slituencies. Wo assume that a siinilur policy will be pursued here, and that the business sub- ...
