VALUE OE CLOVER. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 2 December 1870

VALUE OE CLOVER. Clover, in enriching and improving1 the farm, is next to barnyard manure in value and importance. Indeed, in many places where winter wheat is largely grown, clover may easily be made of more benefit than the usual amount of manure made and applied. For there will only be barnyard manure enough to use 011 part of the wheat and corn land, while the whole of both crops may^ be made to follow clover. And I must believe that clover is not yet suffi ciently appreciated, for if it was, but very little wheat or corn, on all good wheat land, would be allowed to follow any other crop but clover. Now, there is not the least difficult}' in arranging and managing crops so that this may be the case. Always sow clover with wheat, and plough for corn before the clover is run out; and then seed to clover with barley or some other spring crop after corn. This clover the next year, or the year after, will be again broken up for wheat. The main crop will, in neither case be ploughed u...

THE GATLING GUN. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 2 December 1870

THE" GATMN&GUN. .The American Gatl ngGun, which was exhibited in Paris -in 1867, and .which, it "WSEs^serfced " would revolu tionise the art of wary; is*now brought forward as a rlvallto ihfe -mitrailleuse. Each has its advantages and disad vantages.' Thfe Gatling;olike theimi traiil£uSe, has as many locks as it has barrels. But whereas in the mitrail leuse the barrels are fixed and the locks have only a horizontal motion, in the Gatling* both locks and barrels revolve. The locks nave also, when the gun is at work, a reciprocatin°* motion. The cartridges are kept in " teed cases" side by side, and trans ferred to a " hopper," or shoot, when they are to be used. A handle is turned, and a process goes on analo : JjOus to that of the bullet-making* ma ! chines, well known to visitors of the j Royal Arsenal at Woolwich. When a ; ten-barrel Gatling is being fired, five I of the cartridges are in process of | loading and firing, and five in process of extraction after discharging*...

The northern Argus. FRIDAY, DECEMBER 2, 1870. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 2 December 1870

©t* Sm^nt g^ps. FRIDAY, DECEMBER 2, 1870. THE Government intend, it appears, takm^ advantage of the present favorable season to grind a few extra shillings out of the pockets of the poor farmer?. The larmers ht»ve had to contend against a succession of bad seasom, and it has been as mnch as they have been abl< to da to keep themselves afloat. But BOW there has occurred a break in their career 01 adveriity-a bright spot in the loweiing sky and in addition to landlords clamoring fo? arrea s of rent, the Government cannot re?is< the temptation to step in and claim a tlrare o lie spoil. The farmer above all others seems to be " born to trouble." When tLe price o' produce rules high, and the cost of carriage rules low, he invariably has no wheat to sell; and when, by a freak of nature, the ground brings forth abundantly, the charge for cartag* is sure to swallow up a large portion of th profits. From the first of December the Government n t nd to raise the carriage ...

THE ELECTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 2 December 1870

THE ELECTIONS. The Municipal elections created considerable excitement on Thursday. The election of Coun cilors was almost forgetton in the interest which centered in the contest for the Mayo ah y.

GUN-CARRIAGES. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 9 December 1870

GUN-CARRIAGES. In one or more of my earlier letters I noticed Captain Grant, the inventor of the well-known field kitchen, has recently devised a new and what may be called a rival gun-carriage. A com parative trial of the two systems has just been instituted by the Royal Car riage Department; and fortunately (for these experiments cost the country a great deal of money), the result was that every officer who was present was more than ever convinced of the value of Captain Moncrief's system. The military correspondent of The Times (August 23) describes the principles on which the two inventions are based as follows:-"To explain simply the difference in general principle between the Moncrief method of storing up re coil and this one we will give a familiar illustration, putting aside all the prac tical advantage obtained by the pecu liar curve of the Moncrief elevators or rockers, and all the disadvantage of the friction caused by gun-carriage and [counterpoise in the new apparatus h...

EXTRAORDINARY CLIMBING. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 9 December 1870

EXTRAORDINARY CLIMBING. From the square of Strasburg, in the early days of April, 1860, one might have witnessed an unprecedented spectacle-that of a human form strug gling* and swaying at the summit of the steeple. The form at that distance looked not larger than a mere speck, and its motions were only to be dis tinguished by the aid of an opera glass. The climber-surely possessed of some evil spirit-was a young soldier, for whom lofty eminences had a special attraction, and who loved his Cathedral of Strasburg as much os Quasimodo loved the towers ot Notre-Dame in Paris. He mounted up to the steeple as soon as he had a moment of liberty, and remained as long as he chose, lor military discipline has little terror at 142 metres above the level of the sea, the elevation at which this soldier in dulged in his awful amusement. One particular day the wind blew with a violence which gave one some idea of what must be its force in the higher regions, and especially round the spire. There ...

- She mtlip: gwgttS. FRIDAY, DECEMBER 9, 1870. WE "liave recently published two letters asking* for information relative to the balance to the credit of the Northern Turf Club. We have waited to see if parties interested in the matter would furnish the required information, but finding- they are not inclined to do so, we think it only right that the subject should be further ventilated. It is quite natural that the fact of the in formation being* withheld should lead people to form ugly conclusions as to the disposal of the said funds. The information has been asked for in a straightforward way by persons who have subscribed part of the money, and who have therefore a right to enquire as to what has become of it. The Secretary or Treasurer, however, in stead of giving a full disclosure of the affair, has sought to hush it up. The secret seems to be precious in their sight, or they would not be so loth to part with it. Persons who have given large sums for the support of the Club are...

MY FIRST DAY IN AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 9 December 1870

MY FIRST DAY IN AUSTRALIA. It was in August, 1852, that I landed in Melbourne. I was only 11 years old, and had rather extravagant ideas and anticipations of what was before me in the G-olden Land. In fact, what I expected life in Australia to be was more like what I hare seen in Captain Mayne Reid's novels than common sense. I pictured to myself the mysterious bush peopled with war-like races of Indians, bush ranger?, and gipsyitig buehmen; where the fabled bunvip and wandegong were roaming through the stately forests in search ot their prey; and the innocent kangaroo was a thing of terror in my imagination. Melbourne at that time was not the Mel bourne of ro-day. When I think of that city in '52, a scene of mud, bark huts, tents, bullock drays, lucky diggers and unlucky diggers, new chums, and runaway sailors passes aero-s my mental vision. I lost one cf my boots in the mud somewhere very near Prinoes Bridge. I had been to visit some friends in company with my brother, and on our ...
