A PBEE SELECTOR'S BANK.-The Albury Banner thinks that the establishment of a local bank with the ' especial views of meeting the wants of free selectors, small farmers, &c, would be a good thing. In an article on the subject in its last issue it says :- ' A vast tract of country has now been occupied by a highly respectable class of free selectors, who have invested a largo amount of capital in forming agricultural and grazing farms and vineyards, and in the case of many of these selectors as much as from £1000 to £5000 has been so invested with every prospect of future success and prosperity. Yet it is a matter of the greatest difficulty and inconvenience for these selectors, as a rule, to obtain advances from the banks. They cannot tender title deeds of their farms, as in the largo majority of cases the land is only "conditionally purchased," and will not become actual freehold property until the full price of 20s per acre has been paid to the Government. Security for an o...

The Proposed Public Cattle Yards. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 9 April 1870

The Proposed Public Cattle Yards. As the Legislative Assembly -will shortly go hito com mittee on Mr. Driver's bill for'enabling the municipal council to borrow £10,000, with whioh to erect public yards for the sale of fat cattle and sheep, it is as well that honorable members should be posted up in the various bearings of the case, whioh from some of tho speeches delivered last Friday night, it would appear they are not. The question, as we understand it, is extremely simple ; the advantages to bo gained from such a market are many and great, and there should be no opposition to the corporation bill on any public grounds. Wherever public or munioipal cattle markets have been established they havo been in every way successful; not onlyfgiving great facilities to pro ducers, sellers, and buyers, but being a fruitful source of income and profit to the authorities in whose hands they are. Of all this there are plentiful instances in the colony of "Victoria. Melbourne, Ballarat, Castle ...

THE GRAZIER. The Water System of the Interior. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 9 April 1870

THE GRAZIER. The Water System of the Interior. AT the preBent time, when the question of water supply is being mooted, it may not be deemed out of placo to call our readers' attention to the substance of a very able paper, from the pen of Slr. James Samuels, junior, of Dubbo, on the Water System of tho Interior, which was published in the columns of the Empire on the 27th August, 1868. Some extremely flattering notices of the article were received at tho time of its publication by the pro prietor of that journal ; but strangely enough those who now discuss the subject of water supply for the interior seem to ignore Mr. Samuels's suggestions thereon. Thus a prize is now offered by a number of public-spirited gentlemen in this city for an Essay on the very subject which, as it seems to us, Mr. Samuels has treated so ably and exhaustively. In fact, we are satisfied ourselves that if this gentle man's suggestion is acted upon, and a general attempt be made to tap and store the water con...

Sheep Farming in Australia. (From the Field, December 25.) [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 9 April 1870

Sheep Farming in Australia. (From the Field, December 25.J Sm,-The following is an extract from a lotter I have just received from an Australian squatter of some years' experience in tho colony, and which will, I have no doubt, bo interesting to many of your readers. If you think so, you are at liberty to insert it in your paper. Kensington, Dec. 6. G. A. Wool ia still going down, down. Tho cause, of course, is over-production of inferior staple. If it goes on at this rate, it will be below zoro ; as it is, it hardly pays (in fact, it does not pay) to grow it and send it home. Tho general opinion is, however, that a reaction must take place shortly. Squatters have liitherto gono in too much for numbers of sbcep, disregarding quality. Tho crisis has come, and not only lias tho faulty wool gone down, but sheep, from thoir excessive numbers, become valueless. No market price whatevor can now be named for thom, simply because thero is no one to buy. Tho consequence is, that every one is...

THE NOVELIST. THE SHADWELLS OF RABY. CHAPTER I.—MABK SHADWELL OF RABY. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 9 April 1870

THE NOVELIST, | THE SHADWELLS OF RABY. OHAPTEB I.-MABK SHADWELL OP RABY. TÙBV HALL stands near the old London-roád, in a midland county. You see but the great door and a portion of its front as you look up the broad straight avenue with its double row of gigantic old beech trees at either side. Its brick is red and mellow ; black beams of oak, well jointed, and with carved inscriptions, bar the old walla across, and broad windows, with moro small square nanes than I dare ' number at a venture, return the sunlight when it nears the horizon like a thousand wintry fires. The ground slopes downward from the front of the house, clumped with grand old trees, and rises in the I ! rear' so forming those unequal and wooded uplands which overhang the old road with a distant and sombre outline for several miles. The ancient park wall flanks a long stretch of the road, and, leaving it, slopes upward and loses itself among the distant woods. In this wall upon the high road, are set the four grea...

HTS ADVENTURES, PERILS, AND ESCAPES. CHAPTEB XL.-THE END. Relieved from tho apprehensions whioh had urged him to seek measures by which for a time he might he concealed, Mark was impatient enough to run down to Broadley. < Nor was Maud the less desirous of seeing her parents onco more ; tho more partioularly since she had been assured by Mi*. Benton that she would be reooived with open arms. So next morning Mark announced that he should proceed at once to see his unole. Mr. Benton approved of this, adding that so soon as he heard froml Mark ho would also run down to his native .town. Mr. Rath decided upon remaining in London. " I hev a cargo to look after, Bonton," said he. " Business aforo pleasure, you know ; end neow we hev the young critters tu homo, I ken du as I please, I reckon. I'll go doown with Benton, Mark."

LADIES' COLUMN. " The Girl of the Period." [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 9 April 1870

LADIES' COLUMN. " The Girl of the Period." OP all tho pervorso forms evor assumed by the nevor dying passion for exalting tho past at the expense of tho present, surely tho oddest is the still popular cant about tho degenerate character of tho English girls of the day. That they aro tile prettiest and most capti vating girls in the world nobody has yet been found hardy enough to deny. But, at tho same time, it is certain that within the last few years an uncomfortable sort of suspicion has got hold of many worthy j'eople, to tho effect that beneath all this smiling and pleasant exterior a very disagreeable chango has taken place, and that thc girl of tho period is, to speak plainly, not such a modest, innocent, and refined person as were her mother and her grandmother in tho days when they were young. Anything more unpleasant than this suspicion in thc oyes of the parents, brothers, and possible husbands of theso attractive young people can scarcely bo imagined. Not only is there so...

A Midnight Adventure. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 9 April 1870

A Midnight Adventure. BY "OLD BUSHMAN."   IN the spring of the year 1845 another man and myself were employed droving sheep on the Southern-road. We started on one occasion with a flock of fifteen hun- dred fat wethers from the Murrumbidgee for the Sydney market, and prosecuted our journey as far as Bong Bong without mishap or noticeable adventure. At the end of a warm, dusty day we reached what was then a beautiful glade, fringed with gigantic trees. We pitched our tent on the verge of this glade, rounded up our flock for the night, and made ourselves as comfortable as circumstances would permit. A good supper, a cheerful fire, and an excellent pipe of tobacco,   soon put us on the best of terms with ourselves, and with the rest of the world. We lay upon the velvet carpet which nature had spread around, chatting quietly, in listless enjoyment of the luxury of the scene. The moon was at its full, and cast her silver light over the glade into which the trees...

Exotic Trees and Plants Suitable for Australia. THE COCOA-NUT TREE. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 9 April 1870

Exotic Trees and Plants Suitable for Australia. THE COCOA-NUT TREE. As we have already intimated in our introductory article on this topic, while desirous of drawing special attention to those trees which are adapted to the lati- tude and climates of New South Wales, we should consider the task we have set ourselves incomplete were we to omit mention of any really important tree which is capable of being naturalized in any part of our conti- nent. It is natural that we should consider our own colony as paramount, but we must not forget that we are Australians, and that the advancement of one por- tion of our common country cannot possibly mean the retrogression of another, except in the pettiest and most unworthy sense. With these few remarks we beg leave to introduce to the notice of our readers, the Cocoa-nut. tree. This very valuable tree is a member of the "palm" family of plants, and abounds chiefly in the tropical regions, that is, within a zone of latitude 23degreees 30 minut...
