BATTERY POINT, HOBART TOWN, TASMANIA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 17 October 1874

BATTERY POINT, HOBART TOWN, TAS- MANIA. 1 HOBART TOWN and ita suburbs presents to the lover of the picturesque many pleasing views from the adjacent slopes. The river Derweut in front, broad aud placid as a lake, the umbrageous hills around, and the grand dome of Mount Wellington behind the city, form a noble framework to thc 1 picture. One of the best views of the Derwent and the pleasant suburb of Battery Point is obtained from Rich- mond-road, about a mile from the river, the point which our artist has chosen for illustration. The view presents a variety of aspects, as it may be lit by sunshine or sombered by shadow, the mountains of Nelson and Wellington, chang- ing " from grave to gay, from lively to severe," according to the atmospheric conditions, aud presentiug new charms at every transition. Probably few cities, even in more favoured and frequented climes, can equal Hobart Town for superb beauty. So far as situation is concerned it may be pub in comparison, and not unfavour...

MORNING AT MACEDON. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 17 October 1874

MORNING.AT MACEDON. OUT of all the priza pictures painted by Mr. L. Bnvelot there aro perhaps none that more successfully show the mastery of his poetic instincts in dealing with the peculiar characteristics of our admittedly uncouth scenery thau the one we have engraved. With the simplest materials in the way of landscape-a few gum trees, a water-hole, and a distant mountain range-he can at any time produce a pic- ture at once truthful and plèasiug. Without the command- ing grandeur of the mountain pass or riven rock, without the magnificent glow of a declining sun, or tho gathered weight of an impending storm, our present subject is one of the most ordinary material, such as is to the right or the left of every observer in Australia ; and it Í3 this simplicity, when dignified by the spirit of the artist, that reuders the merest sketch not only a work'of art; but a friendly inter- view with nature. Mr. Buvelot is always happy in his selections, and has done much, and is still doing...

THE MODEL SCHOOLS, ADELAIDE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 17 October 1874

THE MODEL SCHOOLS, ADELAIDE. THE Model Schools are situated at the corner of Grote and Brown streets, aud, with the yards, occupy one whole acre of land. The building, which is of Gothic style, and of one floor only, has its principal frontage to Grote street. It is evident that no expense has been incurred in mere ornamen- tation, still the general appearance of the building is ex- tremely good. Three large rooms are provided for the sepa- rate instruction of boys, girls, and infants. . Each of the two larger of these rooms measures 70 feet by 24 feet, aud has attached to it a class-room 24 feet by 16 feet. The infant schoolroom measures 40 feet by 20 feet. The height of each room to the wall-plate is 104 f°et. and to the centre of the ceiling 25 feet. Each schoolroom is provided with a hat and cloak room and large lavatory. The schoolrooms are well lighted at the side by narrow pointed windows in keeping with the style of the building, and at the ends by two large cinquefoil light...

MR. F. L. MONTAGUE'S APPROACHING ART UNION. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 17 October 1874

MR. F. L. MONTAGUE'S APPROACHING ART UNION. THE pictures painted by Mr. Montague, for distribution as prizes iu bis Art Uniou tbis year, are DOW nearly finished, and will be ready for exhibition some time during the pre sent month. " They form, perhaps, the finest collection this talented artist has yet offered to the public. In all there are fifty-one pictures to be disposed of, eleven of which are original paintings of New South Wales scenery, selected from différent parts of the colony, and valued at two hun- dred and fifty guineas. The total amount of subscriptions is limited to this sum, so that subscribers get, over and above the number of chances they are legitimately entitled to, ^an opportunity of obtaining one of the forty additional pictures included in Mr. Montague's list, which are all oil coloured photographs of European scenery aud buildings. The first prize painting is a very impressive scene, chosen from one of the most romantic portions of the Grosse River, which t...

HOW TO STAMP OUT SCARLET FEVER. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 17 October 1874

HOW TO STAMP OUT SCARLET FEVER. BY J. L. NEWTON, PHYSICIAN AND SURGEON, QUEAN- BEYAN. SCARLET FEVER possesses the bad eminence of being the least uniform, the most unmanageable, and by far the most terrifying and deadly of all the eruptive fevers. It hence becomes us, now it is in our midst, to take proper precau - fions against its spread. At the commencement of my task I find an error to combat in the almost universal impression that scarlatina is a different disease to scarlet fever, whereas it is merely the Latin and scientific name of the disorder ; indeed they are two names of one and the same thing. As soou as the disease appears in a house the following precau- tions should be taken : - 1. Ry the NURSE : Her dresses should be made of a washing material, and worn starched. She should avoid, as far as possible, contact with the other inmates of the house. Her hands and all cups or glasses should, immediately after con- tact with the patient, be washed in water containing a tea...

SPRING MANAGEMENT OF LAMBS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 17 October 1874

SPRING MANAGEMENT OF LAMBS.' THE critical time with young animals is :it. their wcnuing. ' The change of food is so complete that if it is suddenly made mischief cannot fail beiug doun. JThisis particularly true as to lambs, and upon thc proper treatment before weau ing them greatly depends their fiitnre constitution, if, I indeed, they escape with life thc many dangers incident to lambhood. As a general rule, it is best to begin weaning a lamb as soon as it is a mouth old, or as soon as it can be tempted to eat. Before thc ewes are turned out to pasture a separate enclosure should be made, to which thc lambs alone eau gaiu access, and in which some templing and nutritious food is provided. This may bs made adjoining the yard where thc ewes are fed. There a small trough, several feet long, resting upon the grouud, should bc placed, in which a few handfuls of bran or oatmeal, sweetened with sugar, should be scattered. A two weeks' old lamb will soon learn to nibble its share along wi...

A CORN MARKER [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 17 October 1874

A CORN MARKER THE annexed engraving is one of a marker for corner pota- toes which we recently saw in use. It is a very light, neat, and useful implement for those who plant these crops by hand in check rows. The markers are strips of plank four feet long, two inches thick, and six inches wide, into which gains are cut to fit the cross bars. Iron straps are fastened over these gains, in which holes are made. Holes are also made in the cross bars, and as the markers are moved along the bars, as they may be set wider apart or otherwise, they are held in their places by iron pins inserted in the holes. The cross bars are connected by two flat iron rods, and a tongue is fixed and braced to thom. A handle is also fixed behind to guide the motion. At the rear end of each marker wings of wood are attached, by which furrows are made. The seed is dropped into these furrows at eaoh intersection of the cross furrows. Flax or linseed may be grown on any moderate rich soil, whether upland or bot...

FUTURE PROSPECTS OF WHEAT CULTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 17 October 1874

FUTURE PROSPECTS OF WHEAT CULTURE. IT has now become a settled fact that in the future the wheat product of Great Britain will steadily decrease. The importations into that country the present shipping season will not be far from 100,000,000 of bushels, lt is the demand for this vast quantity of grain that bas kept up the price in our own markets to a profitable point ; and it is the future demand that will govern the price of our wheat in tbe future. If that demand shall keep even with the surplus which we have to spare the price will be satisfactory ; but if our production shall overrun the necessities of our foreign customers, the price will be so low that it will not pay the cost of producing it. The fact, therefore, that large tracts of land in Great Britain and Ireland have been withdrawn from wheat culture and have been turned into grazing fields and the production of meat, and that American fields are now looked to for the supply of grain, should not temp£ us to go out of ou...

DISEASED FEET OF HORSES. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 17 October 1874

DISEASED FEET OF HORSES. WHEN lameness is detected, it is more commonly than not accredited to some accidental circumstance-tight nailing, ' injury from treading on a stone, or picking up a nail-any- thing, in" fact, but the right cause is suggested. Various remedies arc tried, thc shoe is removed, nud tbe foot carefully inspected, without thc discovery of auy trace of injury ; the horse is rested for a few days, perhaps has a dose of physic, the feet are kept cool, and in a few days the action is so much improved that the owner is more thau ever convinced of the trifling nature of the. lameness, and is inclined to congratulate himself on thc result of his system of treatment. Very soon he is undeceived ; the lameness returns after a journey, aud is now more decided than it was before ; the palliatives which answered in thc first instances fail to do any good ; thc action is palpably worse after the horse has stood for some time in thc stable, and the habit of pointing has now becom...

[?] IN AUSTRALIA [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 14 November 1874

T?"RTP.TPT"\m T"Nr ATTQTUATTA WHO has not heard of the celebrated North Cross Reef ? or rather, who does not know that the North Cross Reefer is in his district an aristocrat worth courting,-always rich, too \ freque»tly drunk, but ever the centre of an adulative circle. To become a successful reefer is the local ambition. The oi polloi keep their eyes religiously on him as if he were one of the patres conscripti, and by following his specula- tive movements afar off, hope and expect to be pulled through eventually. As the townsman swears by the North Cross reefer, so the North Cross Reefer swears by thé mine whioh has lifted him out of his native obscurity, and pitch- forked him into' a position which makes him courted and flattered, button-holed, interviewed, and shouted for by all creation. Good reason has he to be proud of the mine, for the dividend it payB is at the rate of £1000 per day. This comfortable return is obtained frpm two reefs which traverse the western flank of the...

THE SPRING FLOWER SHOW OF THE HORTICULTURAL. SOCIETY [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 14 November 1874

-_. THE SPRING FLOWER SHOW OF THE HORTICULTURA T,. SOfiTTCTV THIS event, which occupied three days, took place upon the 28th, 29th, and 30th October, in the Botanic Gardens, whither were attracted a vast number of connoisseurs, amateurs, and upper ten of Sydney. The Hon. Lady Robinson and suite were present on the opening day, which like the two subsequent ones was remarkably fine. Altogether the exhibits were of a high class, nearly every one of which was in a ' splendid state of preservation. The principal nursery had exhibits in nearly every class open to them ; but the chief prizes were taken off by Mr. Laycock, gardener to the Hon. T. W. Smart; and Mr. Johi on, gardener to A. H. C. Macafee, Esq. The scene during the greater part of each day was a very gay and animated one.

LAGOON, NEAR ROSS, NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 14 November 1874

LAGOON, NEAR ROSS, NEW ZEALAND. Ross is situated in the Hokitiki district, Province of Can- ! terbury, and abounds in many specially pleasant localities which are never forgotten hy tourists. The small engraving given on page 20, although depicting a scene taken in the same neighbourhood, must not be confounded with one pub- lished hy ns in this year's January number. Though similar in name, and forming a portion of the same lagoon, the two sketches were taken from diverse spots, and em- brace separately many distinct features of New Zealand scenery. Fish abounds in every one of the Maori lakes, affording gentle and profitable exercise to those disciples of Izaak Waltoo, whose fortunes have directed them to Aus- tralia, and though trout and salmon does not reward the angler's patience, he will have little to complain of when discussing the merits of such comparatively small fry as he may chance to hook in the shady windings of a New Zealand river or lagoon. The country around Ross i...

BURRAGORANG VALLEY. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 14 November 1874

BURRAGORANG VALLEY. (FROM THE ORIGINAL PAINTING BY. MR. F. L. MONTAGUE.)   OUR engraving of Mr. Fernleigh L. Montague's prize painting, Burragorang Valley, gives an outline and at least some idea of his original, as much probably as is possible to convey by a wood block representation. In the painting the colours have been blended into one another in so imperceptible a manner, and the various distances have been given with so slight an extra tone of shade, and change of colour, that we will be excused for not furnishing a more correct copy when we say that it is very difficult indeed to render in black and white the different effects the artist has placed upon can- vass. The scene here reproduced is a grand one, and though not equal in splendour to the representation of Grose River, a subject that must have severely taxed all Mr. Montague's skill. Burragorang Valley is situated in the County of Camden, near Brimstone Gully. It is a specialty in rocky   land...

DESIGN FOR ST. ANDREW'S ALMSHOUSES, EMERALD HILL. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 14 November 1874

DESIGN FOR ST. ANDREW'S ALMS- HOUSES, EMERALD HILL. As far back as the year 1870, a site of six acres and a half at Emerald Hill was vested in trustees for the erection of buildings, to be designated the St. Andrew's Hospital, or Almhouses. Funds were raised, and the property securely fenced in,_a lodge erected, and also a temporary grand stand for exhibition purposes on gala days. The next step was to obtain suitable designs, and for this an architectural com- petition was invited, which resulted in the acceptance of designs submitted by Messrs. Crouch and Wilson, of 46, Elizabeth-street. Although the foundation-stone was laid four years back, yet, from a variety of causes, the chief of which has been the misappropriation of funds collected for hospital purposes by the Order of St. Andrew, the pro- ject has been in abeyance until a month or two ago, when the St. Andrew's Society, of Melbourne, at whose solicita- tion the ground was first reserved, dissolved its connection with the ...
