THE GRAZIER. Impounding Bill of 1869. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 15 January 1870

THE BRAZIER. Impounding Bill of 1869. THE abrupt termination of tho lost session of Par liament prevented tno passing of a much needed and highly important measure, "A Bill to regulate the Impounding of Stock," which was introduced into the Legislative Council by tho Hon. Robert Owen, the representative of tho Government in that Chamber. If it hart been thought advisable to make regula tionsj as has been done in tho case of other measures, ' giving directions for carrying out the duties of which i it is principally made up, this bill might have been put into one-third its present size. It was, however, considered moro satisfactory to incorporate these de tails ¡it length in tho Bill ; and tho arrangement of thc different provisions under distinct heads will ob viate any inconvenience which its length might other wise cause, ¡md render rofcrenco easy. An important feature in this Bill is tho different spirit in which it has boon framed. Tn the present Impounding Act, a strong bias is...

I MINES AND MINING-. j New Stamp and Quartz Crusher. ADESIDERATUM long wanted in New South Wales purports to bo presented in Child's Patent Atmospheric Stamp and Quartz-Crusher. To provide a machine, at once easily profitable, cheap, simple in its paris, and yet cajmble of testing on a sufficient scale any quartz reef or mineral vein without water, these were the difficulties to be solved. It is claimed for the machine above depicted that it answers all these requirement?, and affords a means of testing- -and of working if need bo--quartz reefs and other mineral deposits under circumstances of difficulty such as no other appliance has yet successfully met and overcome. The machine is very simple in construction, little liable to get out of order, and is easily repaired'by an ordinary mechanic when necessary. The stamp-head used is about 75 pounds weight, but by the force of tho atmospheric pressure it strikes near a 1000 pound blow, with an average rapidity of 150 blows per minute, ...

Mining Report for the Week. Tho general news from the mining districts is not of a vory definite character this week, as the minera have been holding high Christmas and Xcw Year's Day holidaj-s, and had not at our latest advices re. commenced operations with their usual vigour.

Exotic Trees and Plants Suitable for Australia. No. II.—THE OLIVE. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 15 January 1870

Exotic Trees and Plants Suitable for Australia. No. II.-THE OLIVE. THE olivo is indigenous to Asia, and perhaps to tho South of Europe, though somo say that it is only naturalised in the latter, having heen introduced there at a very carly period from Syria. In «appearance it somewhat resembles the English willow, and under careful cultivation reaches a height of from forty to fifty feet. When neglected or allowed to run wild, like many other valuable trees it degenerates into a small thorny shrub. Evon in its wild state it boars abundantly a nutri tious food, much used by 'tho poor of Asia Minor j and by tho inhabitants of Turkish Asia generally. It has been cultivated extensively in Syria, and par ticularly in the Holy Land, from the earliest times, and has constituted ari important article of commerce between soveral Asiatic, Africnn, and Eiu'opean States from the remotest historical periods. An olivo, branch was tho symbol of peace amongst tho ancionts; and whon emissaries woro ...

WHY cannot a medical mau ever be "wideawake?" -Because he's always " dosing."

Melbourne New Year's Day Races. (FROM OUR SPECIAL CORRESPONDENT.) [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 15 January 1870

Melbourne New Year's Day Races. (l'UOM O UK SPECIAL COllllESl'ONDENT.) I closed my last contribution on Friday morning, and by tho samo hour on the following day upwards of 12,000 persons had found their way or wore thon cn route to Flemington. The weather permitting, the meeting was, as I predicted it would be, an unqualified success, let alono its financial result to the club, and for tho first time they scored a credit balance to the midsummer meeting. Eut as regards the sport furnished, the mooting was a decided success. With porhaps one exception, the racing was all on the square, and as the horses went roundtha course, which, by thc way, looks rather scorched, the public could not fail to feol satisfied that their favourites tried to win. I make an exception ; and it is by no means unfair to criticise thc steeplechase, in which Reindeer was pulled off tho course and not allowed to go to tho finish. Some of those who had pinned their faith on him say that was to allow Babbler t...

CHAPTER VII—THE TEMPEST. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 15 January 1870

CHAPTER VIL-THE TEMPEST. " Wall, gentlemen," said Mr. Rath, as he wiped his brow, after, assisting in piling all the cabin, fmouture against the cabin door, " I guess I was right, after all. We shall have warm work of it." The cool nonchalance of the man as he spoke was re markable. He cut a piece of tobacco from the fig he drew from his pocket, and put it into his mouth. He then looked to his pistols, and carefully reloaded them, directing the others to follow Ibis examine. Involun tarily he was accepted as the leader. From a small portion of the glass of one of the cabul door, the besieged could catch a glimpse of the pro ceedings of the reckless wretches on the main deck. As yet, nothing had been done to turn the ship to a course ; and she lay like a log upon the water-her sails idly flapping against the masts as light gusts of wind agitated them. It was still a calm, and the clear moon which lighted up the night, reflected its beams across a sea as placid aB a country mill-strea...

The Mormons and their Ways at. Home. MR. KENNEDY, a Scotch vocalist, has been making a professional tour in Canada and the United States. Amongst other places which he visited was the Salt Lake City. There he had an introduction to Brigham Young and his wives and other Mormon notables. The night before embarking on his return, ho gave a concert at Quebec, and gave the following interesting account of Iiis experiences in Monuondom :-I arrived at Salt Lake City on the 1st of July. It is a city of suburbs ; and houses are scattered, and each house has its garden and trees ; the streets aro wide and clean ; water is flowing everywhere. The place has a quiet, nice, genteel, air about it. In the middle of the city, the business part, there aro one or two blocks. Some of these struck mo strangely. Over the door was a large circular sign, with the words " Holiness unto the Lord." Beneath this was an eye painted, representing Omniscience, and below that these words, " Zion Ce operativo Store...

DUBBO. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 15 January 1870

DUBBO. j I [PROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] PASTORAL.-No subject can possibly be of greater concern to this interest than that of water-supply. It is usually looked upon as the chief element in the value of a squatter's run when there is ono or more good waterholes upon it. In selecting stations some large waterhole in ono of the various rivers has been the seductive allurement to thc commencement of grazing pursuits ; and then have followed the con struction of clams, and the formation of conduets, artificial channels, drains, ditches, or races for the con servation of water which is plentiful during one part of the yeal", and deficient at another. A patch of land on a run adjacent to a good river waterhole is considered tho "eye of the station," and it is when the mala fide free selector conditionally purchases, or picks this " eye" out of fi pastoral property that results m so much bitter antagonism between thc two interests. I think men of practical experience-men of acute observat...

He offers no opinion as to tho curious psychological question which it involves, contenting himself with relating the facts precisely as they occurred, or as the impressions were left upon Ms own mind.] Twenty years ago, having just passed the crisis of a wasting fever, I was on a visit to a friend on the Murray, with a view to forward my convalescence. My friend's property was situated on one of the most beautiful spots of that pre-eminently beautiful part of the country. There was then some of the finest scenery of a certain kind on both sides of the Murray that could perhaps be found in the two colonies. . The banks for a considerable distance back are composed of a deep rich soil, which used to bear some of the stateliest specimens of our indigenous timber, and which, during the greater part of the year, ...
