T. S. ROWNTREE AND CO's. FLOATING DOCK. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 31 August 1872

nt c¡ BOWNTEEE AND CO's. FLOATING ?l' DOCK. THE lower illustration on page 4 of our ^resent issue, gives an accurate idea of the above important establishment. It is situ- ated on the eastern side of Darling Harbour, and possesses a very extensive water-frontage. ADV person looking at the works from the waters of the harbour, obtain but a very scanty idea of their extent and capabilities. All that can be comprehended is a huge floating black box, from which, almost inva- riably protrude the masts of craft of various tonuage-from the humble little coaster to the noble barque of five or six hundred tons resister. pinding that we can make nothing of the Dock, as viewed from a passing boat or steamer, let us see what can be effected from the landward side. Passing down Kent street towards the bold mass of rock on which stands the Sydney Observatory, we turned down the cobbled lane leading to the Gasworks ; we turn abruptly to the right into Jenkins-street, and there, immediately below a...

CAMPING OUT IN NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 31 August 1872

CAMPING OUT IN NEW ZEALAND. If any of our readers feel desirous of realising Christmas weather in the home style, and with something like the surround* ings of the frost in the old country, we oan confidently recommend them to pay a visit about this season to the neighborhood of Bealy Gorge, New Zealand. Our illustration represents a party which recently had to " Camp out " in tho abovo locality, on tho West Coast road, between Christchurch and Hokitika. As will be Been, the snow is lying thickly on the ground, forcibly remind- ing one of the good old English Yuletide, with its snow-laden branches and feathery flakes. The party were many days detained and were half-frozen before they were able to reach a more temperate locality. The first practioal step has been'taken for the suppression of the slave trade in the South Pacific At Sydney, under instructions from England, the Admiralty officers have purchased a small vessel, and intend fitting her out as the first ship of a fleet to b...

EMMETT'S GOLD CRUSHING AND WASHING MACHINE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 31 August 1872

EMMETT'S GOLD CRUSHING AND WASHING MACHINE. IN thia issue we give an illustration of a 1 valuable machine just patented by Mr. E. N. Emmett. We have no doubt that this invention will be heartily welcomed by the gold-mining community, specially on account of the complete manner in which it performs its work, so that scarcely a particle of the precious metal is lost. It is intended to crush, grind, wash, amalgamate, and sepa- rate metallic particles from their ores and other substances whereby a considerable economy can be effected in the process of ob- taining the metal from ores and crushed debris. The ores and debris are introduced into a large hollow cylinder, which revolves and causes the metal to separate itself and ad- here to the interior surface of the cylinder, EMMETT'S GOLD-CRUSHING- AND WASHING MACHINERY. while the coarser, lighter, and other parts are discharged from the end. In the diagram we give Fig. 1 is apian showing the communication of the rotatory motion to the cy...

LA BELLE YSEULT. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 31 August 1872

Là BELLE YSEULT. In this isBue we continue our illustrations offline art subjeots by giving an engraving of La Belle Yseult. The original forms one of the collection in the Victorian National Gallery. It was painted by Bedford, and is a good specimen from that artist's easel. Tradition says that the lady was of sur- passing beauty, and was the daughter of one of the anoient kings of Ireland. Wright, In his history of King Arthur, vol. ii, p. 17, thus describes her: "Then the King Anguish, of Ireland) for great favor made Sir Tramtrist (Tristam) to bee put in his daughter's ward and keeping, because shee was a noble surgeon. And BO, when she had Btiaroiitid hts wound, found in the bottom of his wound that there was poyson, and with- in a little while she healed him." The natural result followed when the life of a knight; of hu'h degree is saved by the hands of a lady fair.-"Therefore Tramtrist cast great love to La Beale Tsoude, for she was at that rimo the fairest lady of the world,...

OUTHBERT'S SHIP-BUILDING YARD, MILLER'S POINT. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 31 August 1872

CUTHBERT'S SHIP-BUILDING YARD, MILLER'S POINT. This very extensive place of business is one of the oldest, if not THE oldest—of our marine building and repairing yards. It was established sixteen years ago, and occupies, altogether, between three and four acres of ground. In glancing over the works, one of the first things that attracts our attention is the immense saw-mills—fitted with every appliance that enterprise could suggest, or money supply. The saws, both verticular and circular, are worked by an engine of about forty-five horse-power, and the timber is conveyed from the water to these, by means of an ingeniously-contrived slip. The upper portion of the building is used as a mouldering loft for the production of those intricate fittings, which now enter so largely into the interior ornamentation of our pas- senger vessels. Also connected with this building, is a large steam-kiln for obtaining the necessary bends and curves in planks, &c. Among the other buildings er...

A service in commemoration of the 25th anniversary of the consecration of the Episcopate of the Lord Bishop of Adelaide (Dr. Short) was held In Christchurch, North Adelaide, on Friday evening, 28th June, the Eve of the Feast of St. Peter.

lotices; oí Bein Eoofesu VISITORS' GUIDE TO SYDNEY. W. Maddock, George-street, Sydney. THIS is a book whick, like our colonial meat extracts, contains a very great deal in a very small compass. It is divided into two parts. The first comprising a description of the city, its in- stitutions, parks, excursions, &c. ; and the second, a valuable mass of information as to the resources of New South Wales-its pub- lic lands, and its agricultural, pastoral, and mineral wealth. To the new arrival, such a handbook is invaluable. If he is anxious to possess some record of the progress of Sydney, here he may obtain a very complete resume of every- thing interesting that has occurred since its foundation. If his time is limited, and he has no one to play the cicerone to the many beautiful pleasure resorts and interesting ob- jects in and around our city, here is a handy little pocket companion, which will supply his want. In fact, among the pages headed " General Description," much will...

THE NORTHERN TERRITORY. In thia issue we give a portrait of Mr. Charlea Todd, who la at the head of the telegraph department In the Northern Terri- tory, and also a view of the depôb established ninety miles np the Hoper River. The re- porta, of the auriferous oharater of this country appear to be too well founded. Mr. Cleland, a member of one of the Govern mena telegraph construction parties, states ^that homet an advanoe party who had ob tained 8 oz. of gold while employed in their ordinary dutieB. Other finds of a similar kind are spoken of, but we have not heard particulars. Some of the persons intending to proceed to the Northern. Territory for the purpose of gold'digging will do so in conse- quence of communications they have re- ceived from men who are or have been there in the employ of the Government.

THE GREAT INTERNATIONAL EXHIBITION OF 1873. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 31 August 1872

THE GREAT INTERNATIONAL EXHIBITION OF 1873. y OY all the proceedings of Parliament during the session I which has just come to a close, none seem to have 'given such general dissatisfaction as the refusal to vote the sum necessary for our representation at the next Exhibition in the mother country. That a trifling sum ,-such as £2000 for the conveyance of exhibits, &c, and a like amount, as a joint contribution, towards the erection of an annexe in which to display our productions, - could be refused by any body of liberal-hearted men, is something too difficult for conception. We can only argue from the fact of such a thing having occurred, that the twenty-four members of our Legislative Assembly, who opposed the item, were not men who co\ild be ' classed as liberal-hearted. The effect of their vote was .virtually to disqualify the wealthiest of the Australian "colonies from entering the lists, and, by this one act, to throw her back to a position which she may have .occupi...

OUR MAP. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 31 August 1872

OUR MAP. IN issuing, with our present number, a MAP of the COLONY OF NEW SOUTH WALES, we believe we are introducing a feature that will be of general interest and use to our large body of readers. The activity which has been displayed during the last few months in developing our vast mineral treasures, is a proof that a good reliable map, shewing the localities abound- ing with various minerals, must be required, In addition to the information supplied rela- tive to these matters, we have inserted a great deal that will be of use to general readers, such as roads, distances, &c. It may be necessary to give some slight explanation by which we have indicated the fields containing the different metals, &c. The horizontal red Vms, "(with which our colony is abundantly streaked, indicate thc GOLD FIELDS known to exist to latest date. The perpewUcular red lines denote TIS, which will be found more particularly abun- dant from Armidale to the boundary. The patches dotted in...

The Month. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 31 August 1872

Cfte Month. OUSES to let !" would be a very ap- propriate announce- ment to post on our Parliamentary Halls in Macquarie-street for the next two months. Regardless of the fact of the times being so ex- ceedingly dull that everybody is used up for want of some- thing to talk about, even our political chieftains have se- ceded and left us al- most 'blue-moulded' for want of a subject. The "Houses" exist while the arenas for such fierce, verbal combats are deserted -and silence reigns where, but a few short days ago, each pugnacious M. P. threw down the gauntlet to his foe, and defied him to a bloodless struggle. Yes, at last the Houses are to let, and the "boys" are enjoy- ing their holidays-each according to his own particular humour. Our friend, Pid, is, doubtless, happy with his slate and pencil doing a little sum in "addition"-just to keep his hand in against school begins agaiu.

Types of Colonial Life. THE SHEPHERD. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 31 August 1872

®ppeö of Colonial %iîu THE SHEPHERD^ BY AMIOTJS. THE Australian shepherd is an entirely dis- tinct character from his English namesake, and sheep-tending in the " Home " country a very different matter to what it is here. In days when shepherding was among the fashionable amusements of the ancients, we hear that the herdsman was then some love- lorn swain, wooing his Elora or Diana under the greenwood tree ; interested in music, poetry, and, in fact, in everything except the management of his sheep. Shenstone has given the world some very pretty pastorals, aud thus he sings of the shepherd's life : " 111 fated flock ; from cliff to cliff they stray ; Far from their dams-their native guardians, far "While the soft shepherd, all tlíe livelong day, Chaunts his proud mistress to his hoarso guitar. " Another lay of the same kind tells us, "Ye shepherds, give ear to my lay, And take no more heed of my sheep They have nothing to do hut to stray, I have nothiug to do but to weep. " The Aust...

VIEW ON THE NEPEAN. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 31 August 1872

VIEW ON THE NEPEAN. Glenbrook has always been a favourite spot for picnics. It is about two miles above I Penrith-just between the hilly and the plain country. The sketch, we give, was taken while the artist sat in a boat at the entrance of Glenbrook--about thirty years ago. Our view looks north, and gives a very good idea of the abrupt hills-dipping their wooded skirts into the quiet waters of the river. Such tranquil spots are not easily met with in the present day in the neighbour- hood of towns-where the hubbub of busi- ness, or at all evente, the axe of the free selector, has invaded the olden tranquillity.

COOKING. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 31 August 1872

COOKING. BOILING, auofcher every day performance in preparing food for man, is simple in appear- ance, yet requiring some consideration and , some art to perform to the best advantage j the art being to thoroughly cook the meat or other substance, without hardening it, or ex- tracting., the natural juices or flavour, and, consequently, with the least loss of weight or material that is possible. How is this to be done ? is the question. Liebig, the cele- brated chemist, recommends that the meat should be put immediately into boiling water, for a few miuutes, to set the albumen, and thus enclose the natural juices ; and then only to permit the water to simmer, until the meat is sufficiently cooked. This is a very good plan. When you want to exhaust the juices of the meat, as in making soup, put your meat, with some salt, into cold water, and, keeping the pot closely covered, slowly bring it to the simmer, and so keep it, and your meat will soon give out all its ? juices and fall to pi...

MOUNT EGMONT, NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 31 August 1872

MOUNT EGMONT, NEW" ZEALAND. A very fine view of this mountain has been taken by our special artist from the Taranaki roadstead. Our illustration shows but a few straggling houses in the suburbs of Taranaki, the town being built behind the hill and rising ground, and therefore hid from the sea view. Years ago a Maori pàh of some dimen- sions was built on the hill to the left of our engraving but it is now utilised as barracks for troopers. The wall is composed of heavy slabs, loop-holed at the top, but the necessity for the use of the latter has passed away, and a well kept garden now surrounds the barracks. The top of the mountain is con- tinually covered with suow, of which, during the winter, there is a very Large quantity collected, nearly one-half of the mountain being covered with it. It contrasts pictures- quely with the heavy forests which extends to the base of the mountain, having a thick under scrub of brush.

BATAVIA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 31 August 1872

BATAVIA. THE capital of all the Dutch possessions in India, is situated near the north-east end of tue island of Java on the shole of a spacious bay. It cousists of two portions-the old, called Jacatra by the natives, situated in a marshy flat near the sea, and the new town, originally suburbs of the old, extending over the higher grounds to a distance of several miles inland. Through both there runs a river of no great size, but with a rapid cur- rent, having its source in the mountains of the interior, at the distance of some fifty miles. In its passage, this river is formed into numerous canals, which looked well, being faced with freestone, and having their hanks adorned with shady trees. Tb» old town is a very unwholesome place, fever and dysentery being exceedingly prevalent. The reason is not far to seek. The town is built upon ground which was originally a swamp, and which is still surrounded in all directions by marshes. The numerous canals, filled with stagnant water, are ...
