The Volunteers. DRILL COMPETITIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 15 January 1870

The Volunteers. DRILL COMPETITIONS. i I The late drill competition, under the auspices of the Highland companies, at the Albert Ground, on New Year's Day, is something so entirely new in the annals of colonial Volunteering that the subject deserves more than a passing notice. Although the Volunteer force has been established nearly'ten years, yet this is the first tiling of the kind that has been attempted here ; and it was left to one of the recently formed corps to initiate what should have been taken in hand years ago by those in authority. In England it has long been the custom to have yearly drill competitions in various regiments, gene rally for a prize given by the adjutant of the corps. Tins has had the effect of inducing a constant attend ance at parades and company drills, besides stimulating members to increased exertions, in order to obtain for their company the much-coveted prize. We do not see why something similar should not be established here, not leaving it to a sp...

Stock Exchange Terms. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 15 January 1870

Stock Exchange Terms. As it is probable some of our readers may not know tho precise meaning of these phrases, so often seen in the newspapers in relation to tho Stock Exchange, wo here subjoin an explanation. A Bull is ono who, having bought stock or shares to a larger extent in all probability than ho could puy for, is anxious that tho market for that particular stock should advance in price, in order to enable him to sell at a profit. A Bear is ono who, having sold stock or shares he does not possess, is anxious that such securities should decline in value, so that he may be enabled to buy at a profit, and fulfil his bargain. The term 'appears to own its origin to the story ol "the man who sold tho bear-skin before ho had killed the bear," though others derivo it from the action of the bear in crushing or bearing down his adversary, ?whereas the bull tosses him up. This explanation will show that tho terms Bull and Bear are usually applied to speculators whose transactions are co...

Advice to Young Mechanics. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 15 January 1870

Advice to Young Mechanics. IN referring te tho growing inclination on tho part of young mon, after they huvo served long und hurd apprenticeships to acquire ii good trade, to abandon that mode of making a living and to ontor the logul or medical profession, whero it is supposed greater emoluments cnn be secured ¡md largor honors won, a contemporary well observes that nineteen cases out of twenty of such ventures aro failures, for two reasons :-First, tho professions rcquiro peculiar talent and tho most thorough education. Aa a ride, apprentices to tho trades have neither tho time nor tho means to acquire this education. Hence, when a mechanic at tho end of his apprenticeship aspires to and enters any ono of tho professions, he .does so at a groat disadvantage, ile may he a fluent speaker, know how to argue a point in a debating sbcioty, or harangue' a crowd at a ward mooting,' but such talonts do not fit him for tho legal profession.7 Ho may know how to extract a splinter from his o...

New Blackfriars Bridge. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 15 January 1870

NEW BLACKFHTARS BRIDGE-OPEN 151) BY HEH JIAJESTÏ* QUEEN VICTORIA, NOV. 6, 1869, ! ,. New Blackfriars Bridge. ON the 6th November, 1869, Her Majesty the Queen opened the new Blackfriars Bridge, amid the loyal de monstrations of an immense concourse of her people. The ongraving of tlris new structure, which is here given, will naturally awaken some desire to know the past his tory of the spot which has acqiiired fresh interest from this event. The old bridge did not last quite a hundred years. The first pile was driven in the middle o'f the Thames on the 7th July, 1760, and the bridge was opened for general use on the 19th Nov., 1709. But Blackfriars hos had a historic interest for six centuries. Here the Black or Dominican Friar's had a church and monastry. In this church Edward I. kept his charters and records. On the opposite bank of the Fleet Ditch, which runs hero into tho Thames, stood the ancient palace of the Norman kings, now known as Bridewell, and used as a prison for refra...

Weather—Crops—Stock Movements Pastoral and Agricultural Prospects. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 15 January 1870

Weather-Crops-Stock Movements Pastoral and Agricultural Prospects. Favourable reports from the various parts of the colony are very little varied, either respecting the state of feed or the cropB, most of which are now fairly hus banded. In one or two localities a succession of hot winds has commenced to scorch up the grass ; but even should the next month or two prove unusually dry, and our autumn rains bo somewhat deferred, no serious results are anticipated. Everywhere stock and sheep are in splendid condition, and waterholes and dams moderately supplied. From Dubbo reports are specially favourable, and plenty of fat sheep are cn route for the Sydney market. The weather has been moderate, but a few light showers would be very welcome. A private letter from Culgoa, dated 31st December, states that the intense heat was burning up the feed, but that a few thunder showers had fallen, and besides somewhat refreshing the grass had partly refilled waterholes.

Pastoral Combination. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 15 January 1870

Pastoral Combination. ! _ i TN urging a system of organised combination among the Crown tenants of this colony, many obstacles bar the way, of which isola tion, selfishness, and indifference are the prin cipal. Few are sensibly alive to the greatness of the benefits that would flow from combina tion.' Squatters have been accustomed to act out their part single handed ; they have battled with obstacles far away in the remote interior where sympathy seldom reached them. They have during yrars of self sacrifice stood by the side of their flocks and herds, perhaps deserted by their shepherds, while thousands of their cattle and sheep lay languishing I timid the burning plains from hunger and drought ; they have ¿one hack into the remote interior, long judged to be a sandy desert, und there they have existí d'by the most strenu ous exertions, exposing their lives to the dangers of their unprotected position. They have peopled the wild waste and turned to value what was formerly worthless...

Braidwood District. I CONCLUDED my last by being the victim of misguided faith. Well, while waiting for the sun, and lying under a bush, I happened to distinguish the distant barking of two dogs. I listened attentively and I took a careful memorandum of the direction whence the faint sound \jame, and waited for the dawn with confidence. As it came, the waning moon was right ovrer the marked spot, and tho sun on my light hand, so I had nothing to do but keep them there, and in doing so (after surprising a number of kangaroo taking thoir morning, meal, and bor ing through any quantity of scrub) I came on the shep herd's residence, three and a half miles from thc home .-¡tead, and his dogs proved to be tho owners of the bark [ had heard.

A moat brutal murder was perpetrated on Sunday night, or Monday morning, the 2nd or 3rd instant, somewhere close to the bank of tho river near Mr. George Raff's house, a short distance from town.

According to the testimony of some persons, he was seen at the Catholic Chapel on Sunday, and later in the evening was observed in the company of a female, pro ceeding in the direction of Fortitude Valley. The police are in possession of information to the elf oct that at 10 o'clock on Sunday night Hartnett was seen and spoken to by a servant girl, whose name it is hardly necessary at present to men...

THE DAIRY. The Kerry Breed of Cattle. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 15 January 1870

THE DAIRY. The Kerry Breed of Cattle. THE main interest of capitalists and stockowners in Australia having' long centred in the production of wool, beef, and tallow, to thc comparativo neglect of tillage and daily farming- cattle have mostly been bred for their fattening qualities, to tho almost complete exclusion of what in older countries is regarded as of equal importance-their value as mediums for tho pro duction of milk, butter, and cheese. Hence a good breed of bord economical milch cows is still a desidera tum in Now South Wales. Snob a breed as tho Kerry cattle, it appears to us, would be admirably suited for thc wants of dairymon, small sottlers, and private families. The Kerry cattle, although small in size, aro not unsymmetrical in shape, and possess two or three qualities not often found together j for, whilo as a breed they are tho best milkers in the world, they also fatten readily, and arc about thc most hardy livers of known variety of horned stock.
