Agriculture. AGRICULTURAL STATISTICS. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 29 December 1856

%tcalto. AGRICULTURAL, STATISTICS. The unquestionable utility of statistical inform ation has been recently forcibly inculcated by the .Registrar General. This species of information must be of the first importance, in an economic point of view, in all matters ; whether political, .scientific, or domestic. But, it must be conceded, ^statistics relative to the produce of the soil are -of permanent importance, next to those relative to .the number, condition, and distribution of popu lation. After accurately ascertaining the number -of the population of a country, the next enquiries .?should be 'How are we to feed them?' — 'Do we grow enough ourselves ; and, if not, how ?much , are we deficient?' Without these cn 'quiries.are satisfactorily answered, it is impossible rto meet, with certainty, the demand. Either the anercliantiis ruined, the speculator enriched, or -the great liodyof the people have to pay starvation ,prices ifor :the staff of life. The farmer is de prived of all groun...

PROSPECTS OF THE FARMER. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 29 December 1856

prospects ot1 the farmer, ( Prom the Argus, Dec. 13.) Most of our farmers are now busy with the hay crops, and will bo seriously inconvenienced by the heavy rains of this week. After tho experience of last season they ought to bo well provided with tarpaulins to keep the stacks dry while being formed. The exposure to tho weather iu tho field is of comparatively little consequence, so that care is taken to dry tho bay thoroughly before it is put together in large quantities, altnougli tlio colour may bo a little spoiled, tlio fermentation of the natural juices which takes place in tho stack, if not carried too far, renders the bleached straws as good and palatable as tlioso that retain the green. Of courao the rain tvttjhes otf a small portion of the saccharine matter, which is not to be recovered, but most of tho damage i3 usually done by too much healing ill the stack, caused by an excess of moisturo, iu which ease the fermentation passe* the benefioiul, and runs into the destructi...

The Country. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 29 December 1856

Cntraiq. Tiie Cnors. — We have had an opportunity of con versing with one or two gentlemen who have just returned to Alaitlanil from New England. They state, and we believe their information may be relied 011, that a great breadth of wheat has been raised, and that the crops are iu first-rate candition. In fact tli.it thcro is sufficient wheat gathered in, to supply the whole population, including those at tho diggings, and that scarcely any flour will this year be required Iroin Alaitland. The low country crops are, we are informed, notwithstanding the damage done by tho floods, rather above the nverage. If this be tbo case, and if the supplies entoring the ports of Sydney and Alelbourne continue to be as largo as -they have been, it is not probable that the prices of wheat will advance much in this district — Northern Times, Dec. 20.

('i\i the Eiiitov of the ' lllawarra Mercury ') J Sir-— From your journal of Alonday, I learn that the contest between the rival steamers has been brought to a close, by a union of interests, at least as far as tho respective owners arc concerned. 1 11111 willing to admit that such a union may be . bcnojicial to the community, but it must not bo lost sight of that tho position of the mama i_.oinpu.uy, is cmuiiiiumj anuiuu.

Tho response lo (lie invitation given to tho public, and the owners of steeds ' fleet of foot', was not a very warm one, judging from the entrances for tlio different races and the attondanco of the course. However, tho hacks that wero entered were equally matched, and ^ those persons who attended the races seemed to enjoy themselves vastly, and in a sober, rational manner. The weather in the early part, of tlio day was warm and somewhat close and cloudy, whioh indications of a change were verified by tho commence ment of rain, accompanied by thunder, in the afternoon.
