HAM AND BACON CURING AT NORTHCOTE. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 23 August 1879

HAN1 AND BACON CURLING AT NOBTHCOTE DURisG the last week we have visited the premises, formerly used as a bacon curing establishment by Mr. George Plant, but which have remained closed for some months, since that gentleman retired from that line of business, These premises were taken about two months ago, by Messrs. King, Smith, and Kenihan, and we were really agreeably surprised, considering the short time the new firm has been at work, at the evidences of extensive trade, plainly visible on all sides. To thoroughly understand the matter, we visited the place on different days, so as to see poor piggy from his introduction to the slaughter pen, through all the, stages, to his exit from the establish ment in the shape of toothsome bacon. We may preface our remarks by stating that the whole place is scrupulously clean, and the most fas~siious could go over the entire establishment, without either sight or smell, being in the slightest degree offended. The pigs are slaughtered in an o...

NEW BOOKS IN THE FITZROY LIBRARY. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 23 August 1879

NEW BOOKS IN THE FITZROY LIBRARY. This institution has lately acquired a valuable addition to its collection of literature.

The Library Committee is to be commended for its judicious selection which embraces al most every subject under the follow ing heads Historical works, Philosophy, Law, the Metaphysical Sciences, Critical biogrophal notices, works of Travel and Geography, the Mechanical Sciences, Natural History, Political Economy, and Fiction. Dealing with the first-named there are to be found Justin McCarthy's " history of Our Own Time," in 2 vols., just issued from the press, which is interesting, well-written, and embraces the interval from the accession of Queen Victoria to the date of the Berlin Con gress.

NOTES AND COMvlENTS. Br CosMoroLrTE. 211 8 I 79. Geography is a useful study, worthy of the attention of all thinking men, and deserving of more consideration than is at present accorded to it by those whose aim it is to keep the masses of population posted up in events of interest constantly transpiriug in dif ferent portions of this mundane sphere. This is true of geography in general, but more especially is an accurate knowledge of localities adjacent to the ollice of a newspaper purporting to give daily a true and correct record of -transactions taking place in all parts of the Colony. I have. hbfore now, al luded to the mistakes tmade by onie of 'the Melbourne papers in reporting events relating to Fitzroy an"i Col -lingwood ; and still another instance of either oversight or negligence remains to be chronicled.
