GESTATION IN SHEEP. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 22 August 1874
GESTATION IN SHEEP. IT has generally been held that the period of gestation was one of the distinguishing marks of specific difference in animals. A series of experiments recently conducted by a 'prominent naturalist developed the following difference between Merinos and Southdowns when kept under the same conditions : Mori uo«.150.3 Southdowns. 144.2 Half-bred Merinos and Southdowns .... 146.3 Three-quarters blood of Southdowns .. 145.5 - Seven-eighths blood of Soutudowus.... 141.2 We have observed as extreme variations as these in the same flock of Merino ewes all bred and handled alike, and incline to the opinion that they are not unusual. That there should be such difference, however, in the average of a series of experiments-and that hinging on a difference in breeds-is a fact worthy of notice.
WHAT SHOULD BE KNOWN ABOUT LAMENESS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 19 September 1874
WHAT SHOULD BE KNOWN ABOUT LAMENESS. MANY a poor horse suffers acutely from the treatment of: quack Veterinarians when he ought never to be touched, and it is a most common thing in Sydney to witness horses blistered and rolled in the wrong place. I have repeatedly seen a «horse blistered in the shoulder for foot lameness. This is, in reality, a more common occurrence than most imagine. It may appear strange but it is not the less true, that horses are blistered on the hock for a fracture of a bone in the foot, and I have knowm the fetlock to be blistered most frightfully for sprain of the loins. . I could go on multiplying cases from my note-book,, but these are enough to show the importance of being able to distinguish between the different kinds of lameness affect- ing animals. It should be remembered that each kind of lameness has its own symptoms, which are quite distinct one from another, and I most positively affirm that no man should pretend to treat an auiraal unless he kno...
HORSE BREEDING FOR HUNTING PURPOSES. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 19 September 1874
HORSE BREEDING FOR HUNTING ¿ PURPOSES. NOTES BY " SCRUTATOR." HAVING now treated of the breeding, rearing, and general management of horses, it may be as well to make a few remarks upon thc purchasing of them, and the points to be attended to in selecting them, for the. purpose of hunting, the Toad, or harness. The first question generally asked is .the age of the horse, should his appearance be approved of ; and here the inexperienced man will be entirely at the mercy of the seller, unless be can obtain the assistance of some friend well versed in such matters, or the opinion of a veterinary surgeon, which is not always obtainable. The teeth of a horse undergo great changes from the time of birth to the period when he is between four and five years old, about which time the tush or tusk appears, situated between the front and back teeth. From the marks or grooves in j the front, teeth the age of the horse may be correctly known by those accustomed to them. At six years old the mark...
CONVERSAZIONE AT THE NEW GENERAL POST OFFICE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 19 September 1874
CONVERSAZIONE AT THE NEW GENERAL POST OEEÍCE. I ;A K I x G tradition as truth, and our brief history as a colony should prevent any possibility of mistake in the matter, according to no less an authority than the Hoir Saul Samuel, the small illus- tration placed at the commence- ment of this notice is a correct representation of the initial post oiiice of New South Wales, in fact, the only establishment of that kind Sydney could boast of before the year of grace 1810. No doubt our worthy Postmaster General bas consulted every recog mseu aiiDiiorroy avaiiame ; no doubt that very important personage, tile " oldest inhabitant," has thrown in what in- formation he possesses about the public buildings of our earlier days, so we may safely take for granted the dictum of Mr. Samuel, and believe that in the dilapidated sentry box here depicted at one time all business relating to the receipt and despatch of His Gi-acious Majesty King George the Third's mails was transacted. The curiously in...
ALEXANDER II. EMPEROR OF RUSSIA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 19 September 1874
ALEXANDER II. EMPEROR OE RUSSIA. THIS son of him'with whom we strove for power," aa the Poet Laureate commences his lines, upon the Duke of Edin- burgh's marriage, ascended the Russian throne on the death of his father the Emperor Nicholas, which occurred when the Crimean war was at its greatest height in 1855. Pew who remember the hard fighting of our gallant soldiers and their French allies with the Muscovite squadrons which, inside and outside of Sebastopol, proved themselves such j courageous and obstinate enemies, would have ventured to prophecy that less than twenty years later the autocrat of ' all the Russias would have become Great Britain's most welcome visitor, or his landing on English soil celebrated by the roar of friendly cannon, civic receptions, royal proces- sions, balls, and the like. But then, of course, no one would venture to prophecy how long the present good feeling may last between the two most powerful nations of Europe. Great as was the honour shown to his...
THE EMPRESS OE RUSSIA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 19 September 1874
THE EMPRESS OE RUSSIA. HER Majesty is a daughter of the late Grand Duke of Hesse, and for thirty-three years has shared lier husband's . fortunes. She is spoken of throughout the entire Continent as a lady of the most refined character. Her kindness to the poor people of her own country, whom she never ceases to patronise on every available occasion, has earned for her the name of "Mother of the Russians." The lamentable death of her eldest son, shortly after his betrothal to the Princess Dagmar of Denmark, affected the Empress deeply, and for a long time her grief seemed as if it would prematurely help her to the grave ; but the care of her daughter, the (now) Duchess of Edinburgh, and the never-wearying attention of the Emperor, did much to restore her to former health. Though perhaps Marie Alexandrowina is consort of the most powerful and wealthy of all modern potentates, her house- hold is a model for the people under her care to copy. On state occasions and the like, Russian gr...

MAJOR-GENERAL SIR G. J. WOLSELEY, K.C.M.G., C.B. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 19 September 1874
MAJOR-GENERAL SIR G. J. WOLSELEY, KC.M.G., O.B. THIS distinguished General is in his forty-second year, having been born at Golden Bridge House, Dublin, on June 4th, 1833. He is a son of Major Wolseley of the 25th Regiment, and belongs to the Wolseley family of Wolseley Hall, Rugeby, Staffordshire. He entered the army in March, 1852, and served with the 80th Regiment in the Burmese War, and with the 90th in the Crimea, where he was severely wounded, gaining his Captaincy in 1855. He was present at most of the battles occasioned by the Indian Mutiny of 1856, and received high praise for his conduct at Lucknow, with the brevet rank of Lieutenant-Colonel. In 1860 he was in the Chinese war, on the staff of the Quarter- master-General. He gained the full rank of Colonel in June, 1865. In 1867 he went to Canada as Deputy Quartermaster General. The history of the Red River Expedition in 1S70, commanded by Sir Garnet Wolseley, has been told so lately that our readers must have it yet fresh ...
"NUMBER NINETY-SEVEN KENT-STREET." (Concluded.) [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 19 September 1874
" NUMBER NINETY-SEVEN KENT-STREET. (Concluded.) THE day was dying out when Fred Grant left. The western sky, which half-an-hour before had been one broad and brilliant sheet of crimson purple, intermixed with gold, had changed to ruffled waves of dark and silver grey. The darkness crept about in silence, entering and taking pos session of the lawyer's room, whilst its owner lay, his face close down upon his folded arms ; his breathing painful, quick, irregular, as one whose.sleep is broken in upon and murdered by a haunting, dañinea dream. As in a heavy nightmared slumber, when one's blood is curdled up, when yawning voids are traversed swift to Death's own home, and stifled moans are all the victim's proof of waning life, he lay in seeming sleep ; but ever, as the wind did hurtle by, BO evei from his lips did fall the words, "Oh, God! Oh, God ! how fearful just thou art ! Thy curse may linger, but it comes at last." An hour went by, and thus he lay, moaning and shuddering like some...
THE RIGHT HON. BENJAMIN DISRAELI. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 19 September 1874
THE BIGHT HON. BENJAMIN DISRAELI. LIKE the statesman whom in the early part of the present year he displaced, Mr. Disraeli is a man of "many summers." He was born in London, on December 21, 1805, it is said in Bloomsbury Square, rendered famous to most readers by Dickens' celebrated Christening Reminiscences. His father, Mr. Isaac D'Israeli (who adhered to the ancient method of spelling the family name) was a learned antiquarian scholar, author of "The Curiosities of Literature" and the "Cala- mities and Quarrels of Authors." The family, originally Jewish, had been driven from Spain to Italy during a reli- gious persecution in . the fifteenth century, where they assumed the name of Israeli. The present Premier's grand- father was for some time settled at Venice, but eventually left that place for London, where he amassed a large fortune in mercantile transactions. It was there that Mr. Isaac D'Israeli met and married Miss Basevi, to whom after- wards was born the subject of our pres...
AQUATICS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 19 September 1874
[ - AQUATICS. ON Saturday, Aug. 22nd, a sculling match in watermen's skiffs, for £25 aside, took place between E. Trickett and H. Pearce, the course being from Fort Macquarie round Goat Island and Fort Denison back to the starting place. The men ' started very equally, but before a fifth of the distance waa passed over, Trickett began to lead, and gradually increased his distance till the finish, which he accomplished ia thirty six minutes. Pearce, not satisfied with his defeat, attri- buting it to the greater weight of his boat challenged, Trickett, to another trial, conditionally on the skiffs being changed. This took place on Monday, when Pearce again lost. A sculler's race in outriggers took place over the old Champion Course on the Parramatta River, on the 29th August, the contestants being William Lyons and James Candi ish. The race was a very hollow one. Lyons having it all his own way from the start. The event of the year in boat racing will undoubtedly be that which is anno...
The Month. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 19 September 1874
FOLLOWING the lead of older countries, and also the contiguous colony of Victoria, certain advanced thinkers here have set themselves the task of improving our educational system. The statements and comparisons made by the honorable author of the Public Schools' Bill, at his great meeting last month, have not been gene- rally accepted as showing a fair state of. things ; and the records of the Council of Education have been ransacked, and the ~ statistics of all places available in which the process of compulsory education has been tried, twisted, and turned about in every conceivable way in the endeavour to prove how much more preferable is that kind of teaching to all methods at present in vogue. It cannot be denied, ? that from whatever cause arising, whether from the extreme jealousy that exists between all- the denominational bodies in the State, from some weakness on the part of those higher authorities to whom the guardianship of our public educa- tional establishments are co...
THE ELECTRIC TELEGRAPH DEPARTMENT AT THE NEW GENERAL POST OFFICE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 19 September 1874
THE ELECTRIC TELEGRAPH DEPARTMENT AT THE NEW GENERAL POST OFFICE. ON page 4 will be found an engraving of the Electric Tele- graph operating room, on the second floor of the New Post Office, the arrangements of which were most attentively in- spected by a large crowd of persons on the opening night. At S o'clock the wires connecting the instruments in the old office at the other side of the street were cut away, and the work of telegraphing the news of the inaugu- ration ceremonies was completed to London, India, and the colonies, and receiving congratulatory replies was com- menced. Many private messages were also sent. The circuit was most complete, as may be judged from the fact that a telegram was sent and a reply received from Madras by means of overland line and cable in eight minutes. A message to Banjoewagi, Java, 4250 miles away, was also transmitted and an answer returned in twenty seconds. The room we have illustrated is 00 feet long by 30 feet in width, «nd ia the mort s...
