The following account of the, method of photo-printing on .wood is taken'from the British Journal of PAotography : -The. negative 'is, of course. taken in the usual iny;. but as it must be re versed on the block,. it should be taken through the glass: that is, the film side should be psext the door of the slide, the thbikness of the glass- allowed for in focussing, and the spring of' the slide kept from the film. in any of the well known moder.. To prepare the block, dissolve five grains of Chloride of barium in 'about half a drachnm of sulphate of barium. This is then gently rubbed over the surfsce of the block-first with the finger, and then with the. ball of the ttumb-dd as to produce an even, thin costing, which result is easily obtained after a little practice. A coating just sutlicient to whiten thb surface will be found enough. Or the two salts of barium, in very fine powder, may be in, timately mixed, and, by a circular motion of tht, finger...

GABO ISLAND. The special correspondent of the Argus in rompany with the Victorian delegates to the cable Conference at Sydney, has the following description of Gabo Island on tihe way to Sydney:--" Gbo Island was our next stopping-place. and somea 200 miles had to be covered without a break. All the day the vessel was under steam and sail, and tihe weather being perfect, the time passed very pleasantly. In the morning the prayers of the Church of England, according to the regulations of the service, were read in the foreclstle by Captain Stanley, and the read ing of books and papers under the poop awning was the general occupation for the remainder of thoe day. Early next morning Gabo Island was in sight, and at half-past 9 o'clock th'e Victoria was at anchor within a quarter of a nmile of the shore. A quantity of stores had to be landed here, as well as several tons of oaol for tie use of the lighthouse and telegraph station, for there is no fuel to be got on the Island, which grow...

A VICTORIAN ITEM FROM INDIA. [Newspaper Article] — Portland Guardian — 2 February 1877

A VICTORIAIN ITEM FROM INDIA. A respected member of our plutocracy who sailed some few nmnths past for England, seemed to have yearned for colonial associa. tlons before he had got very far on his voyage. It was known that Mr. Moffat, the gentleman to whom we allude, got as far as Galle safely and in good health, and it was not of course suspected that already he ex perienced a want for which lie had not made provision. But so it was. Ito appears to have suffered some loneliness of feeling at the absence of Australian friends, pastures, and herds, and to have keenly felt that it was not good to be altogether alone in that respect. This we infer fromn the following which is published in the Railway Service Gazelltte, Inda, from a correspondent of that journal : "A Fortunate Meeting.-By the mall boat Avocs, which left yesterday, proceeded to England Sir. Moffat, one of the largest land owners in Australia. lie started work on one shilling a day, and now is the possessor of a fortune o...

SIR WALTER RALEIGH, THE AUTHOR OF SHAKSPEARE'S PLAYS AND SONNETS. [Newspaper Article] — Portland Guardian — 2 February 1877

SIR WALTER RALEIGH, THE AUTIIOR OF SHARSPEARE'S PLAYS AND SONNETS. This is the titlde of a well written and thoughtful pamphlet by G. S. Caldwell, Portland. Under this ileading the author discusses the startling question raised some years ego in Enlaend and America to the effect that Sir Walter Raleigh is the author of the plays and sonnole s which have re ceived world-wide reputation under the name of William Shlikspeare. Mr. Cald well is of the opinion that Raleigh's tug gested authorship is well founded, and the extracts which ise has culled from Tvtler, tile latest biographer of Sir Waelter Raleigh, and Knight, the biographer of Shakspeare, go some length in establishing tile position. Tile facts and argumnets in the pamphlet are such as to juetity firther in veatigattion into this roost iqtereesting question. It lhas always beeoo a puzzle with critics and commentators where Shakspeare attained the knowledge and experience manifested in the plays and soenets, and doubts have bee...
