OUTSIDE EXHIBITITION AT THE SMITHFIFLD CATTLE SHOW. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 9 April 1870

OUTSIDE EXHIBITITION AT THE SMITH- : PIFLD CATTLE SHOW. THE next show was that of a "learned and musical fish." Tho master of tho fish was particularly atten tive to me, and himself undertook to make the fish go through IIÍB performances. The " learned fish" was of course a seal, an exceedingly pretty and intelligent little thing, which lived in a large aquarium containing about four inches of water. The. master gave us an introductory lecture :-The I fish was captured four years since, and it had cost upwards ¡¡of ono £1000 to train him. In ordor to prove that thero was no collusion ho would stand at a distance, when the fish would oboy tho word of command. There was no deception, the fish was alive, and was not as an old woman said publicly, " a hoy sewn up in a seal skin ;" nor was it as another person had stated " a tamed imp of the d-1." The fish would now play a tuno. An apparatus consisting of two hell, was now brought forward, hammers were attached to these hells, and they w...

SCIENCE—INVENTION— CONSTRUCTION. Professor Tyndall on Dust and Disease. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 9 April 1870

SCIENCE-IWENTIO^ CONSTRUCTION. Professor Tyndall on - Dust and Disease. A MOST interesting lecture on this^subjoot was delivered by Professor Tyndall, on the 12th January, at tho Royal Institution, Alborrmrlo-streot, London. Ho said : " Solar light in passing through a dark room reveals its track-by illuminating tile dust floating in tho air. 4 The sun1,' says Daniel Gulvorwell, ' discovers atoms, though they bo invisible by candlelight," and makes them dance naked in his beams.' In my researches on tho decomposition of vapours by light, I was compelled to remove theso 'atomes' and this dust. It was essential that tho spaco containing tho vapours should embrace no visible thing ; that no subBtanco capable of scattering the light in tho slightest sensible degree should at tho outset of an experiment bo fouud in tito ' experimental tube' traversed by the luminous beam." After describing unsuccessful attempts to arrest tho dust particles, he thus proceeded :-" I tried to inter cept thi...

The Mount Cenis Tunnel. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 9 April 1870

I The Mount Oenis Tunnel. . THE groat international work ot -which an illustra tion ie here presented, was begun in 1857, in presence of King Victor Emmanuel ; and was designed to con nect his dominions in Savoy with Piedmont. The struggles and events of subsequent years, while adding to tho extent and glory of his kingdom, raising him to the position of King of Italy, have led to the separation of Savoy and itB annexation to France; so that the tunnel begun as a strictly national undertaking, to consolidate the realm of Sardinia, Savoy, and Piedmont, has before its com pletion been assigned to a different destiny. It will form not only tho avenue between Italy and France, hut the most direct line of communication for the overland mail between Great Britain and Western Europe on the one side, and tho Ked Sea with all Asia and Australasia on the other. This tunnel is, therefore, an object of world-wide interest. It is expected that it will he opened for the locomotive before July, 18...

THE ENGLISH PEDESTRIANS AT BALLARAT. ' On Saturday, the 26th March, the " English Chain pions " made their second appearance in Ballarat at the Western Oval Cricket Ground. Therefore nearly 5000 persons present. So far tho affair was a success, but tho sports on the whole wore mediocre, and 'the Britishers signally failed in their claim to vast'.'!* superiority.

The Volunteers. VOLUNTEER. RIFLE CLUB.-The third quarterly meet ing of this club, for prize shooting, was held on Satur day, 26th March, at tho Paddington range. Tho day was very favourable for shooting, (with the exception of tho light, which was bad), there being a light breeze from tho left, necessitating an aim of a couple of feet or thereabouts off the target at GOO yards. The scores, however, wero not up to the average, there being very few even moderato scores made. Grumblings were frequent, in consequence of the rules not being adhered to. It is the duty of the committee to seo that the rules affecting the shooting should bo strictly observed, and the club will most assuredly suffer if irregularities are allowed to pass unnoticed. The shooting upon this occasion was for Colonel Richardson's and Ensign Cooper's prizes, in addition to monoy prizes given by the club. Tho Colonel's prize, £10, will gp to tho highest scorer in the aggregate of the four quarterly competitions. Ens...
