Having li.Miiinl to his u Lohenenn ' twice, from end to end we unreservedly state out opinion that it is a general success. A small minority frunyj reason to condemn the whole, declining to admit even 'ex- tenuating circumstances f but a large majority found a great deal to praise, and not a little about which to go into more or less raptures Taking the medium view, we ourselves are disposed to see in Wagner a man of high dramatic genius, a true poet, and a musician of no ordinary calibre, although **i¥h*rrairrinpr Views HiamitTi«-aHy opposite to those of his greatest predecessors, and supporting a theory which would no longer permit music to exist as an independent art.

Toughened Glass. [Newspaper Article] — The Capricornian — 7 August 1875

Toughened Glass. (From tie Tina, Jpril 5.) Although tfae manufacture of glass has been carried on for about two thousand years, it does not appear that any attempts to overcome its inherent brittle ness and liability to fracture, and at tbe same time to nreserve its rrarKnawnrv- ! have proved successful — it, indeed, they have ever been made, which is doubtfuL & is tmc that tie French phSosopher Reaumnrmanyyears since hardened glass somewhat by exposing it to a high temperature for a considerable time. But this process, which is technically termed devitrification, while it hardens, at me same time crystallises the glass and lenders it opaque, tbe product being known as Reaumur's porcelain. Seven years since, however, M. Francois de la Basriej a French engineer, after long and patient investigation into the subject, discovered a simple means of render ing glass practically unbritde, and at the same time of preserving 3t5 transparency. There were many ddirate conditions involv...
