NEW PROCESS FOR DISSOLVING BONES USED AS A FERTILISER. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 11 April 1868
NEW PROCESS FOR DISSOLVES** BONES USED AS A FERTILISER. The importance of phosphates, such as common bones, as fertilisers, especially in grain culture, could hardly be extolled, and it would be presuming upon the in telligence of our farmers to say more than to recommend its practical application. There exist, however, some obstacles which yet prevent waste bones (nearly always cheap and within easy reach) from being generally used. The great distances in the far West, and other inconveniences, render their purchase in powder form ex pensive, and for grinding them at home or dissolving them in acid there is still less chance. Professor Hienhof, in Russia, has, however discovered a method for dis solving them, which must prove highly economical and suitable in unsettled countries, where, owing to the great abundance of forests, wood-ashes are cheaply secured — indeed, are almost always ready at hand. This new process of treating bones consists of mixing them with wood ashes and slak...

MATERIALS USED FOR PAPER. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 11 April 1868
MATERIALS USED FOR PAPER. £From the. Argosy.} Of all the manifold substances contri buted by the vegetable world to the sus tenance and comfort of man, we must certainly assign a high place to those from which paper 4s producible, since no manufacture with which we are familiar contributes more to our convenience or enjoyment, or to our literary and scien tific progress1; and there is certainly nothing in the whole article of produce with which we could less easily dispense than with that very common, but most valuable necessary of civilised life to which we have already made reference. In the days of the world's infancy, and when the art of writing was first invented, smooth surfaces of stone and petal, the barks of trees, the hides of animals, and the broad strong leaves of the palm, were, probably, used by those who desired to transmit ideas of their own or records of events to posterity ; and these were succeeded, or, perhaps, in some countries, supplemented by wooden tablets co...

NEW YORK. February 15. Goldl42£. Several letters have passed between President Johnson and General Grant, which have excited a great deal of com ment. The Tribune says : — There seems ;o be little doubt in the Reconstruction Committee that Johnson has at last over stepped the line, and has put himself completely at the mercy of Congress. It is hinted that the Committee are in pos session of other facts implicating Mr. Johnson in actions in direct violation of law, and. that no doubt whatever exists that a clear case can -be made out against him. : A new point has been raised in regard to the question of impeachment of Mr^ Johnson, for ordering Gen.

HOW TO KEEP A HORSE IN CONDITION. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 11 April 1868
HOW TO KEEP A HORSE IN CONDITION. Country gentlemen of humane feelings still fondly cling to the old plan of giving their horses an occasional run at. grass. It is so natural, they argue, for the. poor thing* to enjoy a few months of unrestricted liber ;y io graze as on their native prairies, and take such exercise as they please. But, besides such poetical and sentimental recommendations, the run at grass is also supposed to ' fine down' and strengthen the limbs, and invigorate the constitution. But to the correctness of these conclusions we seriously demur. Such manage ment may answer well enough as a rest for the over-worked draught horse, but is quite uu- ! suitable for hunters and well-bred hacks. They gorge themselves with bulky food, get gross and fat, and thus overweight their legs ; full of spirit and courage, they gallop and play, run ning imminent risk of sprains and other lame ness, and often come up with kicks or blemishes, and even with damaged wind, from undue exer ti...

Sprfmg, — ? — -i~ ' NATIONAL SPORTS. Training for boat racing lias been strenuously denounced as injurious to the constitutions, of those who delight in the exhilirating amuse ment, but the question has been so ably handled that little more need be advanced on the sub ject. Dyspeptic, nervous mortals may take ex-, ception to every -enjoyment, or even occupation, as being attended with more or less of danger, and carry their phantasies to such an. extent as seriously to interfere with the duties as well as the pleasures of life. The habits and customs, pleasures and pursuits of a . community are matters fraught with the highest importance. They, stamp the character — none more so than the popular sports. Discourage hunting, cricket, boating, and those subordinate amusements which stimulate individuals to exertion, enter prise, pluck — the most powerful incentives to manly vigor and we should rapidly, descend to effeminate degeneracy, unworthy the title of Englishmen. ~ ' ?'.''?
