Chemistry Attacks the Weeds. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 9 July 1886
Chemistry Attacks the Weeds. In Victoria tho Government agrictural chemist (Mr. A. N. Pearson) has boen engaged for somo time in making a series of experiments with a view to determine some efficient and economical method of exterminating thistles. The root of the Californian thistle plant has been found at a depth of 12ft in the Bungaree district, oivinp-nff hnria xrhinh rrrnrxr ur» fnfhaciivfaAn Each root forms a numbor of lateral branches, and where the plant grows the ground for many foot iu depth becomes a mass of interlaced roots and runners. Mr. Pearson's experiments wore made at Leigh Creek, near the border of the Bungaree shire, on a piece of ground thickly covered with thistles. The land was divided into eighty small blocks, and ten different chomicals were used — sulphuricacid, hydro chloric acid, chloride of lime, chlorine water, common, salt, sodic hyposulphite, sodic sulphide, caustic soda, and .vinegar. The only chemical which killed everything, and stopped all growth...
Our Lismore Letter [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 9 July 1886
Our Lismore letter. July 5. — As usual in wot weathor, Lismore is in a deplorable state of mud and water. Al though tho 'Council has spent thousands of pounds on the streets they are littlo better now than thoy wore boforo tho incorporation of tho town. Thoy havo mado innumerable drains, but before the water can bo carried away by them a centrifugal would havo to ho fixed to force it up-hill. Tho principal items of debate in tnc council are gas ana water. Tho starting of your paper at Coraki has been vory effectively felt by ono of our jour nalists, who week after weok publishes long feolingly-writton articles, showing that yon now joumnlists aro very unkind to eomo hero and thus wako him up. But as the journal in question is -addicted to showing the whito feather, anil sticking to tho strongest side, it is to ho hopod that it will soon recover from its ill-treatment and rtsumo its long tales by tho 'special,' on that most interesting subject — Ltsmoro to Melbourne.

Epistles to the Corakians.—No 1. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 9 July 1886
Epistles to the Corakians — No 1. Dear Brethren, — Inasmuch as Nature .has boen most bountiful to you so have ye been less diligent than became ye as citizens of a large and free country. Your Jsplendid position and magnificent fertility of soil hath tended, while moderately increasing your stores to ren der ye somewhat slothful and inert regarding your fnture prospects as com pared with those of other towns and communties in and about your district. This should not be. In the sunny south ern seas, amidst coral islands and an everlasting summer, loaves grow on trees and the iudolent natives lie basking in the shade 'till hunger rouses them or a bread-fruit falls alongside. It is a placo where nearly all the fruits of the earth grow without tillage and can be plucked at will, and sufficient for the day ' is the faith of the inhabitants, who knowing no better and having no wholesome rivalry alongside, naturally sink into careless indolence. Now O, Corakiaiis, I am not comparing you to...

The Bight Hon. W. B. Dalley [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 9 July 1886
The Right Hon. W- B- Dalley- j The Melbourne Argus of Thursday makes the following observations on the appointment of Mr. Dalley as Privy Councillor : — ' No sensible person can grudge Mr. Dalley the reward which the Queen ha3 thought fit to confer on him. It cannot be denied that, in the eyes of his Sovereign and of the English public, be is the most eminent man in these colonies, and not without reason. His opportunity offered, and he had the quickness and pluck to grasp it. While other men considered he acted; and, however much critics may differ with liirn in the wisdom of the course of action he adopted, it is undoubted that it lei to most extraordinary results. Nothing in our time has done so much towards awakening a national sentiment in these colonies. But putting aside his connection with the Soudan, he has shown himself a man of extraordinary power. His eloquence' is remarkable; among his admirers he is known — some- what grotesquely perhaps — as the De mosthenes of New So...

SYSTEM ON THE FARM. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 9 July 1886
SYSTEM ON THE FARM. In the workshops and factories every thing is done systematically. There is a time for beginning work and a time for work to cease, while each and all have certain duties and places alloted them, which they are supposed to be familar with, and which enables them to perform the greatest amount of labour in the shortest time. If machinery is used, the most competent persons are selectod to manage it, and all the details are faith- fully attended to with a view of lessening expenses and increasing profits. It is not always that regular hours of labour can be adopted on the farm. The nature of the work varies with the seasons. No length of time nor certain number of hours of labour can be fixed upon. The farmer is governed by the demands of his crops, the nature of the soil, the weather, the climate and many other considerations. Yet there should be system. As much as possible systematic methods should be pursued. The labourers on the farm should be given the particu...
TO KEEP HAMS. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 9 July 1886
TO KEEP HAMS. - Wrap closely in paper and pack in plaster of ashes firmly, so as to prevent access of spores, which cause mould. A more elegant way is to put each ham in a canvas sack, sew up tightly and then cover the sack with a thick coat of whitewash in which some sulphate on iron (copperas) has been dissolved ; then hang to dry in a cool place and leave undisturbed till wanted. Another way is to merely wet the meat surface with a dilute solution made by placing a teasponful of ordinary cooking soda in a pint of boiling water, adding 3/4 oz. of salicylic acid and stirring till it is dis- solved.
A Heavy Sentence. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 9 July 1886
A Heavy Sentence. A London paper reports that at tho Cen- tral Criminal Court, on April 8, Benjamin Judge, a well-dressed man, aged 61, was indicted for feloniously sending to Mr. Arthur Kenrick a letter, demanding from him the sum of £500, with menaces and without probable cause. The prosecutor in this case is a gentleman of position, re siding in Warwickshire ; and tho prisoner and several members of his family have been known for many years as extensive dealers in what is known as obscene litera- ture of the very worst description, and the prisoner and some of his relations have been convicted of that offence and sen- tenced to long periods of imprisonment. When released in 1885, the prisoner ap- peared to have resorted to his old trade, and sent in all directions a catalogue of obscene works that, could be supplied by him. One of those catalogues was sent to Mr. Kenrick, and he communicatod with tho solicitor for the Suppression of Vice Society, and eventually a cheque for £40 w...
Interrupted Table Talk. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 9 July 1886
Interrupted Table Talk. The other evening the Rev. Mr. Philacter sat down at the tea-table with a very thoughtful air, and attended to the wants of his brood in a very abstracted manner. Presently he looked up at his wife and said : — 'The Apostle Paul — ' ' Got an awful lump on tho head 'safter noon,' broke in the pastor's oldest son, 'playing cricket. Bat flew out of the fellow's hands when I was wicket keeping, and hit me over the ear, an' dropped me. Hurt ? Golly !' and the lad shook his hoad in dismal but expressive pantomine. and he tenderly rubbed a lump that looked like a billiard ball with hair on it. The pastor gravely paused or the inter- ruption, and resumed — ' The Apostle Paul — ' 'Saw Mrs. Ghemime down to Green baum's this afternoon, ' said his eldest daughter, addressing her mother. ' She had the same old everlasting black silk, makeover with a vest of tilleal green silk, coattail basque pattern, overskirt made with diagonal folds in front, edged with deep fringe; ye...
The late Archbishop Goold. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 9 July 1886
The late Archbishop Goold. James Alipius Goold, first Roman Catho- lic Archbishop of Melbourne, whose death was recorded recently, was born in 18 12, in the city of Cork, Ireland, and at an early age he was dedicated to the church, and entered the order of St. Augustine. During his conventual life he travelled the continent of Europe, where he became ac- quainted with many young men of the &nbsp; order, who afterwards served under him in the church of Victoria. Soon after his ordination to the priesthood he came to this colony (in 1838), and he laboured for some years under the late Venerable Arch- bishop Poulding. When Port Phillip was separated from New South Wales, Dr. Goold was selected to fill the new bishopric of Melbourne, his consecration to that office taking place at Sydney on the 6th August, 1848, by Archbishop Poulding, assisted by Bishop Murphy, of Adelaide. Dr. Goold found the new diocese almost destitute of all outward appliances of an ecclesiastical system. T...
