LORD DERBY AS A SPORTSMAN. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 15 January 1870

LORD DERBY AS A SPORTSMAN. Tho remains of tho hite Euri of| Derby wore yesterday consigned to their last resting place in the new churoh at_ Knowsley. The proceedings were of a strictly private character, the mourners being confined to tho family and those immediately connected with the Knowsley estate. It is not in our province to refer to thc political career of thc lumartcd statesman-a career which must be woll-known to thc merest tyro in politics. As a member of thc Jockey Club, the late Earl always stood high in thc estimation of the sporting' community, and us a, grouse shooter and deerstalker, we oro in a position to assert ho was most skilful. We never looked upon his Lordship.as a foxhunter, for tho simple reason 'that ho was unable to ride well to hounds. His knowledge of tho " noble science," however, WBB very considerable, arid whenever he ? had occasion to speak in the House of Commons on the sports of tho .field, when representing oithor Stockbridge,.

I Things a Farmer should. Not Do., 1 ' AFARMER should upt imperil his tibie to land he alreaby1' possesses by over anxiety to obtain an additional number of adjoining acres. He should not attempt to cultivate more land than he can attend to in season, or keep more stcock than the farm-will supply nutriment for. Ho should not put off for to-morrow what needs to be done to-day ; should not wait until a farming implement is . wanted beforo ascertaining whether ho has it, if not whether it is in a condition to bo used. Ho should not lot his stock run down so in Winter that half tho Sum mer will be wasted in placing the animals where they should have been at commencement of Sining.

THE STANLEY FAMILY. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 15 January 1870

I THE STANLEY FAMILY. THE Stanleys take their title as Earls of Derby, not from the town or borough of that name in central England, but from the hundred of Derby in Lancashire. Lord Derby, in common with so many more English noble men, was a cadet of his house. The senior branch, the Stanleys of Horton, in Chester, still survives in tho male line in the person of Sir Rowland Errington, who retains the ancient faith of his family ; he assumed his last name for a fortune. He has two daughters, one of whom is the wife of Viscount Pollington, eldest son of the Earl of Chesborough, but having neither son nor brother, and at his death the direct senior male lino will become extinct. The branch of the family which formerly held the sovereignty bf tho Isle of Man, as wiU bo remembered by the reader of Peveril of the Peak," became oxtinot in the male line early in the last century, and the heir ess-Viscountess Strange, in her own right-married the eldest son of the Duke of Athole.

The Show of Sheep at Armidale. (From the Armidale Express, January 1.) [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 15 January 1870

The Show of Sheep at Armidale. (From the Armidale Express, January 1.) I I The exhibition (under tho Pastoral and 'Agricultural I Society of New England) of unshorn sheep, as adver I tised, came off on Thursday, in Mr. Stair's paddock, i on the hill N. of Armidale Creek. ! Fortunately the weather was favourable, there being i an E. wind, with a clouded sky, and thus there was an I absence of the excessive heat which had previously been j tho rule, followed every evening by a thunder-storm, I deluging the ground. But from some creeks being still up, a number of tho sheep that worn on tho ground had i to swim on their way ; and wo have no doubt that under moro favourable circumstances tho exhibits I would have been multiplied. Yet there was little to complain of on this score, tho show of sheep being very good. There was scarcely so much variety as at tho last exhibition, but tho greater number of tho sheep were first-class of their several kinds. Messrs. Dangar Brothers were awarded ...

;; UrTHE CULTIVATOR. Altered Prospects of Agriculture. A RETROSPECT of our agricultural poj tion haa never presented a very oheerii aspect.

He acted at once on this conclusion.

The International Exhibition of 1871 [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 15 January 1870

The International Exhibition of 1871 Bï a despatch from Earl Granville to .the . Governor of Tasmania, and the communica tion which accompanied it, both of which ihave already been published in this journal, we learn that it is intended to hold an annual international exhibition of works of fine and industrial art and of scientific inventions at Kensington, London, in 1871. And it is the express wish of the Commissioners that all the British colonies should receive official infor . matron on the subject. International Exhibitions have become common events; and it does not seem that - the world is likely to get tired of them. If I to tome minds they have appeared useless dis plays, involving a great expenditure of time \ v and means, without adequate return Vothers dwell upon the failure of the glowing ! anticipations formerly entertained concerning their supposed influence in pre venting war, and remind us that ^ daring the twenty years which have elapsed'^since the first of these e...

Practical Researches in Sugar Refining. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 15 January 1870

I Practical Researches in Sugar j Refining. IN tho art of sugar manufacturing and refining, it must be admitted that Frenchmen have of late years taken the lead, and have made many important improvements. The practical, as well as soientific character of their national educational establishments, their devotion to chemical investigation, î and their freedom from what may be termed conventional notions on scientific sub jects, have all helped totylace them in the first rank of the great army of sugar producers and manufacturers. M. Monnier, a gentleman eminently qualifiedfor inves tigating and advancing this branch of commercial chem istry, has recently published his researches in sugar ¡refining, from wliich we take some interesting facts. ,His labours have led him to tho following~conclu sions : If sulphurous acid gas is conducted into a chamber containing coarse sugar, the latter is promptly bleached, and about three-fourths of the coloiiring matter is en tirely destroyed, while t...

The Labour Aspect of the Sugar Question. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 15 January 1870

The Labour Aspect of the Sugar Question. NOTWITHSTANDING tho acknowledged practicability and importance of sugar cultivation and manufacture in this colony, there is a very large amount of misap prehension and a considerable dogreo of timidity prevalent amongst the bettor class of our- agricul turists with respect to this groat industry. In tho first place, wo know it is very generally believed that none but vory large capitalists or powerful com panies can hope to succeed at this business of sugar growing and manufacture. It is also supposed that the areas in which the better kinds of cane und [ sugar plants can be cultivated advantageously are very much circumscribed-hoing confined to a narrow strip of coast down to 32*50 South latitude. Tho cost of manual labour in tho colony is also considered a hindrance wliich precludes all attempts on tho part of men of moderate meanB to undertake sugar culturo ; and which renders tho introduction of Coolies or Chinese labourers a necessity f...

Another Fenian Scare in Canada. GREAT EXCITEMENT—MYSTERY—THE CANADIANS CONSIDER THEMSELVES "SOLD." [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 15 January 1870

Another Fenian Scare in Canada. GKEAT EXCITEMENT-MYSTERY-THE CANADIANS CON SIDER THEMSELVES "SOLD." THE Montreal Daily ITcioa of October 12 has the following concerning the current "Fenian Scare." At about 4 o'clock yesterday -evening the sergeants of various volunteer regiments, acting under orders of tjieir officers, began collecting from various points. The occasion of this sudden and alarming notion was and still ¡is veiled in mystery. Of course the first cause assigned for it was the universal bugbear Fenianism, and rumours of immense gatherings of desperadoes on tho line ran current and gained ready credence. It soon became known that an order had been issued from Ottawa to prepare to tum out the whole force of the country, and that the work which our volunteers were doing was being pursued with equal vigour by the volun teers all over the country. The following is a copy of tho order: " Deputy Adjutant-General Mditia, No. 5 Military Distriot, Montreal, October 10, 1869. " (Co...
