DISCOVERY OF FOSSILS. [Newspaper Article] — The Manaro Mercury, and Cooma and Bombala Advertiser — 26 February 1870

DISCOVERY OF FOSSILS. Ws nolioe that the Ovens an&M&urray Ad vitrtiier publishes the following interestinc extracts from the journal of Mr. Black, who is at preieit engaged in making a geodetic survey of the country op the boundary between Victoria and Neiv South Wales. They are, moreover, of peculiar interest to the residents of the Manaro district, Bendook, and Benang : — 'The weather up here (Forest-hill, January B, 18?0; 6000 feet, plevahon) is delightful for an Australian midsummer. Tho changes pro bably would be trying to some constitutions, as the range of the thermometer is something tremendous. Yesterday morning (January 5) 1 had to break the ice before I could wash ; at midday tbs thermome ter registered 76* in the shade. I then exposed a thermometer with blackened bulb; in order to find tbe range in the sun. It ran up to' 130', and as the instrument was only graduated to 130' I was compelled to withdraw it, to prevent it bursting. The range, therefore, is ...

CATARRH IN SHEEP. [Newspaper Article] — The Manaro Mercury, and Cooma and Bombala Advertiser — 26 February 1870

CATABRH IN SHEEP. Tub following noter from the experience of a Daring Downs sheep-owner on reading Mr. Bruce's pamphlot on thtfahbre subject and contributpd*tb the Brisbane' Courier has a special interest for the graziers of Man6ro: — ? I have never heard of 'common catarrh' before; I only know of 'the catarrh.' My practical ex perience wim catorrn commenced in ioia, nc a station on Manaro where I was manager. At that period an overseer who had been an assigned servant on the station, informed me that catarrh had made its first appearance there twelve years before, and wub of opinion that that was its first appearance in the oolony ; the place where he said it first broke out was Collier's Creek, on »he Murrumbidgee. On Manaro catarrh always appeared in the winter months, say from April to August ; if not attacked during that time we considered the sheep safe until the next winter ; but if attaoked during those months, although apparently recovered, there war* isolated cases in the ...

MR. DAVID BUCHANAN. [Newspaper Article] — The Manaro Mercury, and Cooma and Bombala Advertiser — 26 February 1870

MR. DiVlD BUCHANAN. The Wflggn Wagga Advertiser, in an editorial on the above named gentleman, has the following remarks: — ' Both in his attack on Mr. Cowperand his tirade against the retired civil servants, there were the same vulgar, voluble charges, the same heaping op of extravagant ??ex- pletives, the same coarse and even brutal abuse, which have , alwavs formed the sole oratorical stock-in-trade of this Thersitos' of debate. The last man who should have 'been returned to (he House at alt, he has been the first to dis graoeit; and so he will continue-to ttisgrsxse it wnue mere is any party foolish enough to value his services and shameless enough to use them. For years the standing butt and ridicule of the House, until from being simply a nuisance he became a pest, he seems likely to repeat tha interesting process of his Parliamentary, growth, .unless quick steps are taken to nip it in the bud. 'What these steps phould bp has been very aptly 'pointed out by a new member, Mr. F...

THE FINANCIAL STATEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Manaro Mercury, and Cooma and Bombala Advertiser — 26 February 1870

THE FINANCIAL STATE MR ITT. : The Financial Statement .of the Treasurer is clear and distinct, as it whs last year, though circum stances have rendered some modifications necessary since that time. The great features of the project are the abolition of the ad valorem duties, 'the remission of the newspaper postage, and the raising of a permanent loan to relieve the revenue. of the amounts chargeable annually for glior* dated de bentures and Treasury Bills. This loan would amount in ail to £700,000, of which £200;000 would . be required during the present year.

THE LAND LAWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Manaro Mercury, and Cooma and Bombala Advertiser — 26 February 1870

THE LAND LAWS. The meeting' of squatters, lately held in Sydney, did not promise much for the future cooperation of that class, Squatters usually do not show much unanimity for any purpose; even where their interests generally are at stake, they are undecided in their action, aud contradictory in the expression' of their want*. Bat though it would seem their late meeting got .up for the discussion of their aims sod intentions did not promise to be productive of any hopeful resume, we are glad to say that it is likely toT-bB the means of causing » thorough in vestigation into the rights and requirements of both ? the lessees and free selectors, end, also to cause a thorough ventilation of the deficiencies of the present land laws. The most important meet ing of free selectors that hai yet taken place was one held a short time ago at Muswelibrook, to frame resolutions and petition Parliament for the particular reforms require! by that class. At that meeting a committee was appointed t...

COPPER AN ANTITODE AGAINST CHOLERA. [Newspaper Article] — The Manaro Mercury, and Cooma and Bombala Advertiser — 26 February 1870

COPPER AN A.NTITODE AGAINST CHOLERA. TttB fact that undoubted cases of English cholera ! have lately occurred not only in Sydney but in the Manure district, renders the following extract from the Times of September 29 of much importance at' the present time : — ' At » meeting of the Academic dos Science, M. Dumas, the celebrated French tsbemiit, gave a brief; analysis 01 ur, Burg s report -on tne preservation from eho5ora of men -engaged in working witb; copper. He said, in effect, statistics clearly prove that Wherever the manipulation of copper was carried on the men engaged io it hare almost in variably esoaped harmless. The investigations into the subject were conducted under the tunei'vision and control of the commissaries of police, nnii may, therefore, be imph'eity relied on.

MINING STATISTICS. [Newspaper Article] — The Manaro Mercury, and Cooma and Bombala Advertiser — 26 February 1870

MINING STATISTICS. It is a great pity that we cannot have correct statistics of mining industry in New South Wales. There ought to he some way devised to procure half-vearly repgrts from each mining district, of the number of men engaged in alluvia] and in quartz mining, respectively ; the gross product in gold, coals, ccnoer. and other metals and minerals ? the number of mines opened and worked ; extent of ground held; value of mines and improvements; cumber, capacity, and cost of machinery ; amount of quartz or ores crushed, coals ex. ported and product of same ; as well as cost of extracting and reducing; amount of mineral ground for which title has been obtained from the Government ; and such other particulars as would be desirable. Statistics of this kind would possess great economic value. They would be invaluable guides to investment and legislation, and would lead to the mining industry being ultimately placed on a more systematic, healthy, and remunerative basis. We throw o...

THE GOLD FIELDS REGULATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — The Manaro Mercury, and Cooma and Bombala Advertiser — 26 February 1870

THE GOLD FIELDS RlGUTLAriONS. On the subject of the Gold Fields Regulations, the following extract from the Town and Country Journal of Saturday last will prove interesting : — Since the discovery of gold in Australia, the Government of different times have f'tund no task more difficult than the management of the gold fiels, in a manner satisfactory to the mining population, notwithstanding much outcry on the one side, and many promises on the other. Successive changes have sig nally failed to bring about any good result. Mining for gold has now become intimately connected with commerce; and among the dwellers .in our great cities are to be found a large numberof sp.ecujetors deeply interested in mining companies ; hence we find the «ry hitherto emanating only from the actual miners is taken up by another large and influential .section of the community. Asa rale, the representatives jbf the three geld districts in the Legislature have not been able to do much for their constituents,...

IMPROVED DEVICE FOR LOOSENING AND PULVERISING SOIL. [Newspaper Article] — The Manaro Mercury, and Cooma and Bombala Advertiser — 12 March 1870

IMPROVED D-RVICE FOR LOOSENING AND PULVERISING SOIL. It is well known to farmers— those at Iea«t who endeavour to understand the science of their business— that although the anil holds a certain proportion of the nutritiou'»e!emf-Df« which form, tbe constituents of plants, their roots, 88 well as their leaves and blossoms, depend greatly upon the elements of tbe atmosphere for growth and development. Consequently the exposure of the soil to the atmosphere is a necessity in agriculture. But often its exposure ia simply a reversal of the position of the soil, what was Rt the surface being placed at the bottom of a furrow from four to ten inches deep, that bottom being compressed bard by the weight and friction of the plough. Pulverizing, not breaking into masses, it what the soil needs to enable it to receive from tbe atmosphere, and return to. tbe agriculturist, the greatest amount of good. ? The object of tbe pulverizing machine, an American invention, \b to save labor and time, whi...

There were about fifty or sixty of both sexes, if 1 remember aright, and they were lodged in that queer roofed two-story brick bonse, which even now stands unaltered, just opposite James* brewery on the Newtown road. Amongst the many I saw there was tbe head chief of the Northern part of tbe island; andioaa of bis fellow captives was bis OBly daughter, a litt...
