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

THE HAIRLESS HORSE. This remarkable auimal was captured by some stockmen in the neighbourhood of the Balonne River, close to the boundary of civi- lisation, in the territory of Queensland. It was running with a mob of wild horses, and nearly six months were spent in unavailing efforts to effect its capture before it was finally cut out and driven into a stockyard. It comes from the locality where the tribe of hairless men have been found, and it has been affirmed that in the district where these are the animals are also divested of the common covering of nature. At any rate this horse is one of those remarkable freaks of nature which are occasionally brought to light, ap- parently only to perplex the philosopher, and to provoke the unbounded astonishment of the casual beholder, who looks upon them1 merely as an object of wonderment. The animal is a gelding, rising six years old. He : was captured in a wild state, and still retains a portion of that proud spirit which captivity canno...

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

ROCKINGHAM BAY. This bay is situated in latitude 17.27 1 south. The township is known as Cardwell, first founded in January, 1864, by Messrs. Dalrymple, Scott, Scully, Farquharson, Sell- heim, and Dallachy (botanist), who were accompanied by three native troopers aud some others, arriving by the schooner Police- man on the 19th of January. The township was laid out on the 27th of the same month, the expedition returning to Bowen, Port Denison, on the 18th day of March. On the 16th day of December, 1864, the Hinchin Brook channel was explored, and a practical passage found to exist. Sir George Bowen officially visited the settlement in October, 1865. In March, 1866, Messrs. Collins, Thorne, and Campbell made a trip inland for the purpose of discovering a practical road into the interior from Cardwell. A tolerably good road exists at the present time, except- ing that portion which crosses Seaview Range, bnt the Government are progressing in the improvement of this part of the road. O...

Elegant Arts for the Ladies. PICTURES OF BIRDS MADE WITH THEIR NATURAL FEATHERS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 31 August 1872

elegant for ti)?£aîitt& PTOTÜRES OF BIRDS MADE WITH THEIR NATURAL FEATHERS. FIRST take a thin board or panel of deal or wainscot, well seasoned that it may not shrink; then smoothly paste on it white naper, and let it dry and if the wood casts its colour through, paste on it another paper till perfectly white ; let it stand till quite ¿ry and then get any bird you would repre- sent, and draw its figure as exactly as pos- sible' on the papered panel (middle sized birds are the best for the purpose) ; then paint what tree or groundwork you intend to set your bird upon, also its bill and legs, leaving the rest of the body to be covered with its own feathers. You must next prepare that part to be feathered by laying on thiok gum arabic, dissolved in water ; lay it on with a large hair pencil, and let it dry ; then lay a second coat of the gum-arabic, and let it dry, and a third, and oftener, if you find that when dry it does not form a good body on the paper, ab the very least, ...

A CHAT ABOUT COMETS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 31 August 1872

A CHAT ABOUT COMETS. IN all ages, and among all people, a tendency Las prevailed to connect terrestrial events .with; celestial phenomena. Popular opinion in such cases seeks no reason for its founda- tion. No attempt to establish any such relation as that of cause and effect is thought of. The appearance presented in the heavens, whatever it be, is simply regarded as the harbinger, precursor, or presage of the ter- restrial events which are supposed to accom- pany or to succeed it. When the celestial phenomena thus regarded are from their nature periodical and recurring, as in the case of the succession of lunar phases, some attempt is made to generalise the imputed effects, and to reduce them to rules. In the case, however, of celestial appearances, which are occasional and extraordinary, and which have no discovered periodicity, no such general rule can be established. In such cases mankind is, however, not less prompt and confident in ascribing to their appearance any extraordin...

SHEEP MEDICINES, FOE, WORMS, FLUKE, BOTTLE AND FO.OT ROT. Those valuable remedies, prepared by Mr. JOHN: POTTIE, Veterinary Surgeon, of ^03 Elizabeth-street, Sydney, have been tested nuder tho auspices of tho English and Dublin Agricultural Societies, and by many gentlemen of standing iii New South Wales. In consequence of their great curative success-as many its ninety-five out of one hundred sheup having been com- pletely cured by the uso of only two doses-Mr. Pottie is daily receiving orders, from both Queensland and Victoria, for these mcdiciues, and his increased experi- ence in their value and safety, permits him to rtuoni mend them in preference to sulphate of iron, to rid the system of all parasites and worms, as well as the first and best preventive known against infectious diseases, as attested both by Professors Letheby and Armitage, and other scientific and practical men.

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

VINEYARDS AND SUGAR. IN our statement of the various productions I of the agriculturists, to supply the people who receive their food and other necessaries from the metropolitan market, we inadver- tently omitted wine and grapes ; and we may now add to our established productions, sugar. In the statistics for 1S70, the latest We have as yet before us, the acres returned under grape cultivation are 2371, producing 342,674 gallons of wine, which wine we value at 2s. 6d. the gallon, or £42,S34 5s., saying nothing of the 533^ gallons of brandy. Then there are 1046f acres of vines engaged in supplying 10464 tons of table grapes, which we may surely value at 2d. a pound, or £19,534 13s. 4d.; a total, at the lowest estimate, of £62,368 18s. 4d. from the vine- yards, most of which passes the metropolitan market. To this must be added 1599£ acres then unproductive, noiv most likely producing.

FARMING IN THE COLONIES. ON A FARM OF HIS OWN. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 31 August 1872

FARMING IN THE COLONIES. ON A FARM OF HIS OWN. Unless a man liave some means and cha- racter, he is not likely, in my opinion, to prove a very profitable occupant of a farm. An Act of Parliament to facilitate the ac- quiring of a farm, to such an one, is all very well, and truly proper ; but an Act of Par- liament to plant the penniless and the use- less upon a farm, caunot, in the nature of things, be productive of any great blessing. On the contrary, it must surely and inevi- tably entail misery on the recipient of the farm, and mischief on the nation bestowing it on him. The truth of what I say will ap- pear plain to us, if we only contemplate a man in possession of land who ha3 no earthly means to produce anything out of that land. In such a case, of what use can the poor fel- low's presence be there ? Has he not either to starve, " right off," or to " slope ?" But this is only his personal predicament, and a very sad one it is, certainly ; but let us see whether his presence "o...

THE-BILL TO PREVENT THE INTRODUCTION OR PROPAGATION OF INFECTIOUS OR CONTAGIOUS DISEASES AMONGST LIVE STOCK. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 31 August 1872

THE BILL TO PREVENT THE INTRO- DUCTION OR PROPAGATION OP INFECTIOUS OR CONTAGIOUS DIS- EASES AMONGST LIVE STOCK. IT. wilL be seen at a glance that this is a most important measure, as the heading of the , Bill implies. Its importance can hardly be I fully conceived, as the preservation of our herds and flócks implies not only an imme I diate immunity from poverty and suffering, but also au escape from an eternal condition j of distress. Money alone cannot measure the consequences, for beef and mutton are the staple necessaries of life in these colonies ; and who can picture the harrowing effects : upon the community should this Commodity be deteriorated and poisoned by the germs of ¡ disease, for most assuredly the black train of death must as a certainty ransack the com- munity if either of these diseases sought to * be arrested finds a lodgment here ; hence [ the tremendous necessity for our preserva- tion. It behoves, then, every man possessed of the merest spark of humanity to d...

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

SOMETHING ABOUT DRAINING. A. DOMESTIC vegetable, a grass, or a tree to grow to tbe best advantage, must enjoya congenial climate, a favourite soil, shelter and favourable aspect. Then, the soil must be moist, yet porous and warm-porous to admit the air freely to follow the rain water? which should percolate the soil readily, and* haviug yielded to the earth all its bénéficiai properties, should then combine or amal- gamate with any worn or useless qualities descend, and then slowly run off from natu- ral, or by artificial means ; when, the warm i 1 air penetrating the open pores, existing in all well and deeply cultivated soils-left open by the passage of the water-the ground is further enriched by the fertilizing gases of the atmosphere, which again, in turn, give way to the rain-fall, and so, this purifying and enriching process is, in well-worked land, continuous, with the most marked ad- vantage to the growing crop. No land, however good it may be, can ever grow really fine crop...

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

THE BEE . SHOULD be kept by all, for both pleasure and profit. The Bee is, quietly and silently, a constant profit producer to her owner. While he is attending to other labours or duties, the busy bee is collecting from far and near her stores, which are to enrich her master to no mean sum when, the very small, if any, amount of time, trouble, or expense bestowed upon the hive, is taken into con- sideration. From a hive of healthy bees, in a very short time, a large apiary may be se- cured, without any outlay, but a few boxes for hives, and the creation of a small, open shed, whichis in the power of any right-minded man to construct, let him be ever so poor. Fifty hives will bring in, at the worst of sea- sons, at least £1 each, or £50 the year. In this land of milk and honey, ample food, and short mild winters, more honey may be taken from the bees than dare be extracted where the winters are cold and long. Honey is worth, wholesale, from 2d. to 3d. a pound, and wax, from fifteen t...

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

LEECHES ARE in this country easily collected, and would be a most remunerative employment to many men, and also to the women and children in the country districts. They ure readily sent to London and Paris, where Aus- tralian leeches are preferred to any others. Already many hundreds of thousands have been sent from Melbourne. In our next issue we shall, if possible, give the best known plan for catching and packing them, with their wholesale value in Sydney and London.

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

THE RABBIT MARKET. One of the characteristic sights of Mel- bourne, and worth the trouble of rising early in the morning to behold, is the sale of rabbits held in the Fish Market, at the foot of Prince's-bridge. When this four- footed delicacy was introduced into the colony some few years ago, but few, if any, could suppose that it would be acclimatised so thoroughly as it has been. But experience showed that it propagated far more freely in Australia than in Britain, and only a short time had elapsed after its introduc- tion when complaints, both loud and deep,   arose from amongst the farmers of the destructiveness of poor bunny. Vows   of vengeance were recorded against its ex- istence on every side, but like the sparrow it lived on and multiplied, perfectly obli- vious of the impotent wrath of its biped foes. Now it has been the means of es- tablishing a large and increasing trade amongst the purveyors of food in the me- tropolis, to an extent hardly re...

TOWNSHIP OP CLYDE. , Clyde, the central township of the Dun w tUm goldfield, Otago, is distant 150 mile XÏ.W. of Dunedin. In August, 1862, whei Hartley and Reilly, *the pioneer gold pros peotors, made known the existence of rici auriferous deposits on the banks of th« I Molyneux, Clyde, or the Dunstan as it wai fl st called, became the centre of attraotioi ft many thousand persons, and for som« time supported a large and thriving popula tion. The rush there was quickly followec Iby the opening up of the Nokomai goldfield, a i the discovery, by Fox and others, of th< Arrow River, Lake, and Shotover gold dis triets. Almost simultaneously rich ground w<»s[opened upon the Kau wara, Manuherikia, «aa Fraser Rivers, and adjoining gullies ii i:. ene neighborhood of Clyde, -which from itt position became the centrai dépôt for t widely extended commercial business. Since that time it has passed through the usual mutations of all goldfields towns, and lias now settled dow...
