Agricultural Information. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Gazette and New South Wales Advertiser — 12 March 1803
Agricultural Information A most respectable old gentleman, in the south of Scotland, having had lately occa- fion to repair an old fruit-wall, on which the fruit trees were much fogged, as it is vul- garly called, or covered with moss, found, that from the lime and lime water that got upon the trees in the drudging of the wall with hot mortar, the disease was perfectly re- moved, and that the trees which had suffered from it were rendered clean in the bark, and much more productive. This led him to rub and wash the stems of his orchard fruit-trees with lime-water, with &nbsp; similar success, which will probably foon establish a most beneficial practice in those parts of the country that abound in fruit trees, planted in a strong foil, or so close to each other as to produce these vegetable excres- cences. This worthy gentleman, has also found, that by sowing hot lime on his turnip ridges, &nbsp; the invasion of the fly has been constantly and effectually prevented, ...

Extract From the Report of the Society for bettering the Condition, and increasing the Comforts of the Poor. [From an Account of the superior Advantages of dibbling Wheat, or setting it by Hand]. By the Rev. Dr. Glasse. In the year 1789, I prevailed with Mr. &nbsp; Joseph Morland, one of the best farmers in my neighbourhood, to try, on a small scale, the experiment of setting wheat by hand, instead of sowing it. In this mode of agri- culture, not more than one bushel an acre is required ; whereas, in sowing, more than two bushels must be used. He tried his ex- periment upon an acre or two ; and the sea- son being favourable, the produce was such as he had never before experienced. It was more than 40 bushels on an acre ; being above a fourth beyond the average crop of that year. The straw was remarkably strong ; and the wheat, the finest sample, and of the best quality, in the market. The per- sons employed in setting the wheat, were some women, of whose diligence and handi-...

Miscellaneous Extracts from the latest London Papers. The French Society of Agriculture, of the &nbsp; department of the Seine, have come to a &nbsp; &nbsp; resolution to apply to the British Board of Agriculture, through the First Consul, for a swing plough, a horse hoe, a two furrow plough, and such other improved instruments of English and Scottish husbandry as the Board shall judge to be worthy of trial in France. Lately, a race was run for Fifty Gui- neas from Hounslow Barracks, to Hyde- Park Corner, between Mr. TAYLER and Mr. WARNER, both of the 10th Light Dra- &nbsp; &nbsp; goons, the former in a gig, and the latter in a chaise and pair, which, after a hard con- test was won by the gig by about ten yards. The distance, which they performed in forty minutes, was eleven miles and a half. A beautiful ROYAL TYGER, lately &nbsp; &nbsp; brought from India, having, some time since, broke from his cage in...
BIG SAM. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Gazette and New South Wales Advertiser — 12 March 1803
BIG SAM. Died, Guernsey, on the 6th instant, aged 40, of water in his chest, sergeant Samuel M'Donald, of the 93rd regiment, commonly known by the name of BIG SAM. He served during the American war, with his country- men, the Sutherland Fencibles, and afterwards as fugal-man in the Royals till 1791, when he was taken into the houshold of his Royal Highness the prince of Wales, as lodge por- ter at Carlton-house, and remained in that capacity till 1793 ; he was then appointed a Serjeant in the late Sutherland Fencibles, and &nbsp; continued to act in that corps, and the 93rd regiment, formed from it, till his death. He &nbsp; was six feet ten inches in height, four feet round the chest, and well proportioned. He continued active till his 35th year, when he began to decline. His strength was prodi- gious, but he was never known to exert it improperly. Several considerable offers were made to engage him as a public exhibition, &nbsp; all of which he refus...
Cultivation of the Vine. (Continued-from last Week's Paper). [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Gazette and New South Wales Advertiser — 12 March 1803
Cultivation of the Vine. &nbsp; (Continued from last Week's Paper). The pruning is to be performed in January &nbsp; and February, after having selected the layers and bearing branches, yet the vine may be increased from shoots laid under ground, and led to spring up when any deficiency may happen. At the commencement of the spring the ground should be opened with a pick-axe, (one end of which must be sharp and broad) and for stony ground, one with two prongs, or a strong hoe, and care must be taken in digging, to remove the young shoots round the foot of the vine, as they diminish the vigour of the main trunk. The other modes of opening the ground &nbsp; &nbsp; of a vineyard, are with a spade or implement which only differs from the former ones, by being thinner and broader. The vines should be carefully pruned or thinned about thrice during the season, by clearing away all the exuberant shoots from the body, which deprive those detained for produc...

Extracts FROM THE ASIATIC MIRROR. DATEE NOV. 24, 1802. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Gazette and New South Wales Advertiser — 12 March 1803
Extracts FROM THE ASIATIC MIRROR. DATEE NOV. 24, 1802. M. de Calonne has been received with unusual respect by the French Government, and &nbsp; dines almost daily with M. de Talleyrand. It is said he is likely to recover almost all his funded property in France. The famous Santerre, who commanded the National Guard at the execution of Louis XVI. has obtained a pension from the French Government, to relieve him from the extreme of poverty. It is reported that, in the distribution of the Indemnities which are about to be settled in Germany, the Bishopric of Osnaburgh is to be annexed to the Electorate of Hanover in perpetuity. Among the variety of Subjects introduced into Parliament prior to their dissolution, the regulation respecting the Militia occasioned much discussion, which took place in the House of Lords upon the motion of Lord Hobart, for an augmentation of that Constitutional &nbsp; Corps. The objects appear to be, to consolidate the various Acts as r...
SHIP NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Gazette and New South Wales Advertiser — 12 March 1803
SHIP NEWS. On Sunday morning last arrived the Venus Whaler, Mr. B. Gardner Master, with 1400 barrels of spermaceti oil. The vessels she left cruizing off the coast of New Zealand were, the Albion, Buncker, and the Alexander, Rhodes (as mentioned in our former &nbsp; &nbsp; Paper.) She sprung her boltsprit some days before her arrival, but sustained no other accident to the vessel. While on the Fishery, Capt. Gardner had nearly lost his life from the following circum- stance:-- Acting as harpineer, he struck a Whale, which immediately dived and ran out; a part of the coil entangled his leg, &nbsp; whereby he was instantaneoufly dragged out of the boat, and remained a considerable space of time under water before he could possibly extricate himself from so perilous a situation. Fortunately, however, the &nbsp; line had been expeditiously cut away, and he, by a surprising effort, and strong presence of mind, happily effected his own deliverance. On Mon...
A ROCK DISCOVERED IN BASS's STRAITS. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Gazette and New South Wales Advertiser — 12 March 1803
&nbsp; &nbsp; A ROCK DISCOVERED IN BASS's STRAITS. Capt. M'Askill, on his passage thro' these Straits in the Castle of Good Hope, on the 7th of February last, was near striking on a dangerous Rock, lying S. E. half E. by com- pass, and 7 miles distant from Round Island, or Rodunda, off Wilson's Promontory, and &nbsp; &nbsp; distant about 11 miles from Sir R. Curtis's Islands, Hogan's Group just in sight from the mast-head. It lies mid-way in the Channel into the Pacific Ocean, and seems to be a round clump, upon which the water breaks about 12 or 14 yards in length, but has ap- &nbsp; parently a greater base; it is steep, too, on all sides, as Capt. M'Askill sounded round it, and had no ground with 25 fathoms, within a quarter of a mile of it; it is not more than 2 &nbsp; feet under water, and in very fine weather he thinks there may be no break visible. On his passage through the Straits he saw no other danger. This Rock...

S. and 40. E. long, was struck by lightning, which car ried away the fore-top gallant-mast, shivered the fore-top-mast and fore-cap, and went &nbsp; through the deck, abreast of the fore-mast. It then spread below, setting fire to the sailor's hammocks, wrenching all the iron from their chests, and taking a direction aft into the cabin ; went off among the arms which were in that part of the ship with a dreadful ex plosion. Captain Robertson and the crew, who fortunately were on deck furling every &nbsp; &nbsp; sail (it blowing a hurricane at the moment), thought the ship blown...
