Accidents and Emergencies. TO SAVE PERSONS IN DANGER OF DROWNING. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 2 August 1872
gmîientô anti &lt;Emergenrít& TO SAVE PERSONS IN DANGER OF DROWNING. THE following instructions for saving drown- ing persons by swimming to their relief, are by Mr. Joseph R. Hodgson, of Sunderland. 1. When you approach a person drowning in the water, assure him, with a loud and firm voice, that he is safe. 2. Before jumping in to save him, divest yourself, as far and as quickly as possible, of all clothes ; tear them off, if necessary ; but if there is not time, loose, at all events, the foot of your drawers, if they are tied, as, if you do not do so, they fill with water and drag you. ^ 3. On swimming to a person in the sea, if he be struggling, do not seize him then, but keep off for a few seconds, till he gets quiet, ,which will be after he takes a mouthful or two ; for it is sheer madness to take hold of a man when he is struggling in the water, and, if you do, you run a great risk. 4. Then get close to him, and take fast hold of the hair of his head ; turn him...
Chapters on Common Chings No. 6. COTTON. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 2 August 1872
Chapters on Common Cbtngs No. 6. COTTON. AMONG the materials which, by the industry j and skill of man, are converted into articles of I comfortable and elegant clothing, Cotton in our age stands foremost ; not for its antiquity, for the iutroduction of its manufacture is of comparatively recent date, but because the wonderful appliances of machinery have now rendered it one of the most important branches of the commerce carried on between England and those countries in which it is indigenous. Of the use of cotton by the an- cients we have but little evidence, and this little is contained in the works pf Greek and Latin authors ; there not being one allusion to it in the Hebrew writers, who mention wool and flax as the materials of clothing. Some authors have, indeed, suggested that the Hebrew word, translated in our version of the Bible "fine linen," really signifies cotton; and the " byssus " of Egypt, in which mum- mies were embalmed, has also been supposed to be a cotton fabric....

CHAPTER V. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 2 August 1872
CHAPTER V. NEXT day Ralph, came into the child's room with a book in his hand. He said there were some beautiful things in it, a little above Ethel's understanding, perhaps, but still it would do her good, and please her to hear them. I listened curiously, for it was the new book, which I did not doubt was his. I thought he had planned this surprise to gratify his child, and I fully expected at last to hear him own its authorship. I noticed that Caroline took up a piece of work, and sat stitching with nervous haste, her eyes bent down, and an unusual flush on her cheek. She struck me, just at that moment, as one who might possibly have been pretty, and as like some one that I knew or had known, but I could not think who. Ethel listened delightedly. " How lovely, papa ! " At last, clapping her little thin hands, she cried " How I love that man. I love him. papa." He smiled a little, but very gravely. " Him ? It is not a man who wrote this, my Ethel." I saw Caroline start, and a look,...
OMEO. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 2 August 1872
OMEO. THE little township of Omeo (less generally known by its Government name of Living- stone,) possesses the very unenviable dis- tinction of being the most isolated and the least accessible in Victoria, the nearest town- ships of any importance being Bairnsdale ou the one hand, distant about 75 miles, and Bright on the other, nearly the same distance across the Dividing Range. It is the centre of an extensive, but somewhat thinly peopled mining and pastoral district. The present population of Omeo, including Chinese, may be about 300, and the gold returns continue to exhibit the steadiest yield of any of the Gipps Land districts. ln its palmy days Omeo could boast of about 1500 to 2000 inhabitants, chiefly connected with the mining interest. For grazing purposes, the Omeo plains are justly celebrated, and are perhaps, not surpassed by any tract of land in the colony. Omeo is situated about 2300 feet above the level of the sea, and its average temperature therefore ranges somewha...
CHAPTER IV. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 2 August 1872
. CHAPTER IV. CIRCUMSTANCES were too strong for us. Not even, for Leslie could we afford much time to think. The one thing was to save Ethel to save out of the jaws of death the strong man's little lamb. Oh, that conflict with the monster ! How he laid his clutch, like steel, into the vitals of that little child, .and tore at her tiny fm me, until almost it seemed it would be mercy to cease our conflict and let her go, rather than subject her to the horrid battle. 1 once saw a machine, whose rows of terrible spikes tore and devoured the -white wool which it was its duty to cleanse, in something the same manner as disease fastened upon this little child. Her frail beauty went. The lovely locks were shaved ; the pink skin became yellow, and stretched, and glazed ; her eyes were pale and sunken ; her Hps lost their brightness, and became cracked and black ; and the poor little bones stood prominent and ugly. I But we conquered at last. Not by any of our efforts, humanly speaking, was t...

?' jfamflp ileötcal éuítie. DIPHTHERIA.

QUARANTINE AND VACCINATION. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 2 August 1872
QUARANTINE AND VACCINATION. SINCE the first alarming intelligence reached our shores that Small-pox had obtained a footing in our colony, the Government have made indefatigable efforts to impede its progress and stamp it out ; but the ultimate success of -these efforts still remains a matter of conjecture. Vessels arriving from infected ports have been placed in Quarantine with commendable zeal-too commendable, perhaps, in the opinion of those passengers who are not infected, and who, consequently, have plenty, of scope for the exercise of that gentle virtue, Patience, which is so much exalted theoretically, and so universally ignored practically. All our dead-walls and hoardings have assumed quite a jaundiced aspect, on account of the prevalence of Quarantine Laws and Notices, printed on sulphur colouredpaper, and posted thereon ; and doubtless the bill sticker's account will form an imposing item, over which some sagacious "Member" will immortalise himself on the subject of "retre...

The Month. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 2 August 1872
?f)t Monti). OUR Parliament has had a busy time of it this session in passing the Estimates-and a great deal of diplomatic .fencing has been exhibited,*on the part of the Government, in the endeavour to mix up votes for money yet unexpended, with the Supplementary Esti- mates-and thus avoid its being charged to the expenditure of 1872. This was specially apparent in the case of an unused sum of £12,000-refunded by the Council of Educa- tion, who now wish to have it back again. The Opposition argue, that as the sum voted to the Council of Education was £12,000 in excess of its requirements, it was justly re- turned to the Treasury ; and, if re-voted, should be placed on the Estimate-in-chief. Of coui'se the discussion, inseparably con- nected with the expenditure of public money, always presents an opening for those .mem- bers to distiuguish themselves who have little to suggest on matters in general. ' ' Re- trenchment" is always a safe card to play and forms a convenient fall-back-...
QUARANTINE STATION, PORT JACKSON. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 2 August 1872
QUARANTINE STATION, PORT JACKSON. 1 THE view of the Quarantine Station, as shewn on page 1, is taken from the point of Little Manly lying nearest to the township of Manly. Quarantine Cove is a small bay in Spring Cove, on the west side of the North Head, and the east side of the north harbour of Port Jackson. Here, as being a secluded spot, and one well isolated from the city, those vessels on board of which contagious maladies have broken out, are detained. The vessels in the bay at the time our sketch was taken, were the steamer Hero, quarantined on account of a small pox case, which has since terminated fatally ; the Government steamer Thetis, used as a kind of lazarette ; and two sailing vessels, which had taken refuge in the Cove from stress of weath er. The buildings shewn on the hill are the hospitals, to which tli&lt; sick are removed from the vesse)s¡ and the remaining houses are thc residences of the officials connected with the establishment. The old hulk, painted...
Poetry. THE BACHELOR. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 2 August 1872
THE BACHELOR. Oh, solitude ! where are thy charms?- Cowper. No house, and no home, no children, no wife, Ah ! who would not pity a bachelor's life ? He sleeps (so do oxen), he eats, and he drinks, But there's no one to care what he suffers or thinks. One woman he speaks to, but all she can say Is, " What will you have for your dinner to- day?" On a Monday some slight variation is made, When the washerwoman comes for her bill to be paid. Alas ! for the outcast from all he holds dear, With no one to love him, and no one to fear ; With none that would mourn were he laid in the tomb Except for the guinea he paid for his room. With no one to love save a dog or a cat : Ah ! why fill the soul with affection for that ? As well hug the fish in the fathomless seas As caress such insensible creatures as these. I'd as lief bea baby and cling to a doll, As fondle a poodle, cat, monkey, or poll ; 'T is the speech of the soul that I long for alone, The communion of spirits akin to mine own. Oh ! t...
MARINER'S CHURCH. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 2 August 1872
MARINER'S CHURCH. V THIS church, situated at the foot of George street, overlooking Sydney Cove, almost adjoins the Sailors' Home. It is a neat stone structure, and was erected entirely hy volun- tary contributions. The church, as its name implies, is for the use of the seamen visiting this port, and it could scarcely he placed in a more accessible and convenient position. The vast wharfage accommodation afforded by the Circular Quay always ensures an abundance of sea-faring men in its locality; and those not in immediate connection with the vessels take up their moorings at the Sailors' Home, or the lodging houses with which this portion of the city abounds. The Sydney Bethel Union was established so long ago as 1822 ; and services were originally held in an old building occupying a very incon venient position. In the present Mariners1 Church service is performed twice a-day, and it is under the ministerial charge of the Rev. Thomas Gainford.
Literature. ONLY HER WOMAN'S WIT TO AID HER. CHAPTER III. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 2 August 1872
literature* ONLY HER WOMAN'S WIT TO AID HER. CHAPTER III. WELL, matters were in this state, when, one after another, three disturbing events hap- pened in our village. A book was published hy a Melbourne publisher, a thoughtful, win- ning, holy book, and its strictly anonymous author dated his preface from OUT quiet Ellooripo, New South Wales. I got the book and read it. There are books that go into the reader, whose thoughts blend themselves , into his mind and become at once part of his nature. This was such a book, fresh, natural, and pure in sentiment and expression. It sparkled and tasted brisk, like champagne ; but it was as harmless and health-giving as j clear spring water. There was a tone in it that I knew ; it seemed to me like the voice of a familiar iriend. But I easily solved this enigma. I, like- many others, at once ascribed the shrewd, warm-hearted, loving book to Mr. Kingston. .And what a revelation of his heart it gave. How genial it Avas-how affectionate and for-...
THE DEVON CATTLE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 2 August 1872
THE DEVON CATTLE. WE carry out our promise of placing before our readers portraits of the Devon breed of cattle as they appeared forty years ago, and AS they show in 187*2. They, apparently, have altered greatly in form, as well as in type and quality. FroYn a light, active, race- horse style of frame and order of flesh, they Dow represent a fuller, squarer, deeper, yet still, in comparison with other improved breeds, an active, bright, quiet, intelligent animal, full of VITALITY ; yet with a delicacy .of meat that much improves and adds to their original line qualities. They now stand in form to represent the beast we think best adapted to our climate, system of feeding, the generally distant markets, and particu- larly for our outlying breeding and fattening stations. Their activity of disposition, and enormous vitality, enable them to carry weight, to overcome hardships, and to arrive at distant markets in such condition, that slower, less active, dull, sluggish dispositions coul...
Australian natural Bishop. THE PARRA GALLINACEA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 2 August 1872
Australian Raturai £ätorp* THE PARRA GALLINACEA. THJS remarkable bird, which is met with at Moreton Bay and in the northern parts of . Australia, presents a most interesting study to the lovers of natural history. Its enormous feet enable it to skim over the leaves of aquatic plants on the surface of the lagoons on which it feeds ; whilst, to . render its body still lighter, the secondary wing-bones are curved and hollowed, like ' those of the swan ; and its entire structure is admirably adapted for progression. The male is distinguished by a beautiful crimson helmet on the head ; and the general colour of the bird is brown, black, buff, and white. The entire length of the body is about seven inches, whilst the extreme length of the toes is nearly six inches, so that each foot covers a surface almost equal to that of the entire body.
