Selected Poetry. DAILY WORK. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 31 August 1872

delecte** $oetrp* DAILY WORK. WHO lags from dread of daily work, And his appointed task would shrink, Commits a folly and a crime ; A soulless slave A paltry knave, A clog upon the wheels of time, With work to do, and store of health, The man's unworthy to he free, Who will not give, That he may live, His daily toil for daily fee. No ! let ns,work ! We only ask Reward proportioned to our task ; ? We have no quarrel with the great, No feud with rank With mill or bank No envy of a lord's estate. If we can earn sufficient store To satisfy our daily need, And can retain, For age and pain, A traction, we are rich indeed. No dread of toil have we or ours, We know our worth and weigh our powers ; The more we work the more we win ! Success to*trade ! Success to spade ! . And to the corn that's coming in ! And joy to him who o'er his task Remembers toil is nature's plan ; Who, working, thanks His independence as a man. Who only asks for humblest wealth, Enough for competence and health ; And...

MESSRS. SANDS AND M'DOUGALL'S MANUFACTORY. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 31 August 1872

MESSES. SANDS AND MCDOUGALL'S MANUFACTORY. The growth and improvement of Mel- bourne, which >for many yeara tended BO persistently eastwards, appearB to be taking a westerly direction. The utilisation of the ground which the unsightly western market foundations so long monopolised formed the first decided step towards advancement. The mercantile community is now be- ginning to see that the location of the ter- minus of our growing railway system in Spencer-street must ere long render the contiguous portion of the town mest valuable for trade purposes, and build- ings of magnitude are consequently springing up in the neighborhood. The surrender of the cathedral allotment, where the stonemason and bricklayer will shortly be busily at work, cannot fail to give a great impulse to this West Melbourne activity, and we may expect before many years are passed to see this end of CollinB street as imposing and symmetrical, if not aa fashionable, as its eastern extremity. The uncouth timber...

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

gteffoentsi anö (Bmtxgmtit*. Causes of Accidents.-Among the 14,OOO lives annually lost by violence, are counted more than 1S00 cases where children are burnt or scalded to death. These numerous deaths by fire, and other still more numerous injuries which are not fatal, are referable to the domestic habits of parents, occurring almost exclusively among the poorer classes, where children cannot possibly be tended with the same vigilance as among the rich. Probably a large share of these casualties arises during the absence of mothers engaged in branches of industry which take them from home ; and it seems likely that the evil would diminish with the development of well-conducted' crèches and infant schools, which, on other accounts, are so very greatly to be desired for the infant population of places where mothers are engaged in manu- factures, and other non-domestic industry. Scalds.-Scalds from hot water, unless very extensive, are generally least severe, because the scarf-skin onl...

Chapters on Common Things No. 7. COTTON. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 31 August 1872

<fl^ierö mi Common Cl) ingg No. 7. COTTON. HAVING in a former paper shown the pro- gress of the cotton-plant in three quarters of the globe, we shall now proceed to notice its in- troduction into Europe, in no country of which quarter does it appear to have. been indigenous. Vainly do we search the records of commerce in Christian couutries during the middle ages for a trace of this branch of industry ; the silk manufactures of Sicily and Italy. were well known and esteemed in the twelfth, thirteenth, and fourteenth centuries ; the woollen trade was carried to great extent and perfection in Flanders, Lombardy, and Romagria, at the same periods ; while Greece added to these the manufacture of linen goods, which, with more intellectual arts, she had learned from Egypt ; still cotton finds no place in the general enumeration of the fruits of industry and science. In one country alone, by one people, dreaded yet despised, wealthy yet slavish, learned yet degraded -was its man...

WOUNDS, BRUISES, CONTUSIONS, AND SPRAINS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 31 August 1872

WOUNDS, BRUISES, CONTUSIONS ' AND SPRAINS. ' Wounds resulting from mechanical injury ' should he first washed with cold water j the edges should be brought together taking care that they are kept in apposition by one or more compresses of linen rag steeped in an arnicated lotion; and secured hy a strip of linen rolled round the part. The lotion should be discontinued in three or four days. In contusions and bruises, when the skin is not cut, an arnicated lotion will be suitable, applied twice or thrice a day. Tor sprains, an arnicated lotion is desirable, and a frequent application, cm a linen rag, should be made. A. sling should be used in cases of sprains of the wrist, elbow, or shoulder joint, and a perfect rest of the in- jured part should be enjoined. The virtues of arnica for accidents of this character cannot be too highly recommended ; and every housewife should be provided with a small bottle of this invaluable agent of re- covery from certain accidents.

DATA USEFUL IN CALCULATING THE VARIOUS OPERATIONS OF FARM WORK. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 31 August 1872

DATA USEFUL IN CALCULATING THE VARIOUS OPERATIONS OF FARM WORK. Digging.-To dig with, a spade an acre of land to a depth of from nine to twelve inches, a man will take from four- teen to twenty-one days. The soil in this case is supposed to he recently turned-up land. Wheat land or clover-lea will take nearly, and in some cases double, the above time. Ploughing.-With a depth of seven or eight inches, the distance travelled daily in medium soil may be set down at sixteen miles. Extent of land ploughed in a given time and at a given speed.-The horses walking at a speed of a mile and a-half per hour, the time working being eight hours and a-half, the extent ploughed, the furrow being nine inches in breadlh, is -according to Mr. Stevens-one acre and twenty-one poles. The standard may be taken at one .acre ploughed in ten working hours ; the best length of furrow, according to the same authority, being 250 yards.

CROUP. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 28 September 1872

CROUP. The Croup is a complaint somewhat similar to the Whooping Cough, and to which children only are subject : there are two species of it, the one acute, the other chronic : neither of them often attack children so late as ten or twelve years of age ; while they I may seize infants newly weaned, and are then the most severe.. The cause of this disease is a morbid secretion of thick mucus in the trachea (windpipe), adhering so firmly to its sides as to impede respiration. The quantity and thickness of mucus increasing, gradually lessens the diameter of the part, and if it effects this to a considerable degree, the disease must of necessity prove fatal. The symptoms by which Croup is manifested, even to the most uninitiated in the duties of the sick-room, is the peculiar croaking noise made in respiration (from whence it takes its name) ; and when the disorder is light, there is hut little apparent indisposition between the paroxysms, save a certain dullness, and a sense of fear in...

Family Medical Guide. CHICKEN-POX. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 28 September 1872

dfamflp Jîfleîitcal <§utöe* CHICKEN-POX. THIS disease," like the Small-pox, seems to depend on specific contagion, and seldom effects a person but once in his life. The eruption is often preceded by chilliness, succeeded by flushings, pains in the head and back, thirst, restlessness, and a quick pulse, but at other times none of these premonitory symptoms are observable. Pustules soon appear, and about the second or third day are filled with a watery fluid, which is never converted into yellow matter, as in the Small-pox, (to which it bears great affinity) ; and about the fifth day they usually dry away, and are formed into hard crusts or. scabs. No danger attends Chicken-pox, but often a good deal of suffering. The Small- pox and Chicken-pox differ-the eruption of the former is preceded hy a fever of a certain duration, while that of the latter is either preceded bj' none, or hy one of uncertain duration ; also in the pustules and succeeding scabs appearing much earlier ...

ABOUT DETECTIVES. "HONOUR AMONG THIEVES." [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 28 September 1872

ABOUT DETECTIVES. " HONOUR AMONO- THIEVES." TUB members of the police force-more es- pecially of that branch known as detectives who manage to save enough to take "a public," are by no means few, and among them resides in my own neighbourhood, one to whom 1 am indebted for the materials for this paper. Sergeant Straightforward, the individual in question, is an intelligent man, and his cun- ning is not exceeded by that of the acutest rascal that ever polluted the earth. He is up to every trick and dodge that ever sharper knew, or dicer played-he has, "profession- ally," as he says, been, compelled " to be fly to every move." Yet, though as knowing as the acutest sharper, he is as unstained in morals as though he had never heard the name of craft-and perhaps more so. Some who have read the highly spiced " Reminiscences of Detectives," may take it for granted that a halo of romance o'erhang3 the life of a professional taker of thieves and murderers. But in actual experience it is not ...

THE JOSH BILLINGS' PAPERS. NATURAL HISTORY. The Mobbing. THE robin haz a red breast. They hav a plaintiff song, and sing az though they was sorry for sum thing.

They kan also rob a currant bush fust rate, and are smart on a gooseberry. If a robin cant find enny thing else tew eat, they aint too fastidious tew eat a ripe straw- berry. They build their nests out ov mud and straw, aud lay four eggs ¡that are speckled. Four young robins in a nest that, are just hatched out, and still on the half shell, are alwuz as reddy for dinner az a nuzeboy is. If ennybody goes near their nest, their mouths fly open at once, so that yu kan see deer down to their palates.

Literature. THE HAUNTED CLOSET. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 28 September 1872

literature* THE HAUNTED CLOSET. MY sister wrote me that she had taken a house for the summer, "a queer old-fashioned house," away down on the lonely Georgian coast, where the children would have the benefit of the sea breeze and the surf bathing prescribed for them after a sickly spring season. And she urged me to come and join them in their new abode. Queer and oldr fashioned indeed I found it-a jumble of brick and stone and timber, each room of which had the appearance of having been built separately, by successive owners, with regard only to personal convenience, and in open defiance of all architectural rules. Yet I liked this very irregularity and the odd nooks and coiners which were for ever unexpectedly ° turning up " in the most improbable places. The halls were large and airy, and the rooms abundantly supplied with closets, windows, and doors-the latter, for the most part, opening upon broad piazzas, or queer little porches stuck here and there like excrescences upon the wa...

Time was, when thro' echoing forests, Save the music of the streams, And the songs of bright-hued chorists, Flitting thro' the fairy scenes ; Save the tempest in its madness, Or soft zephyrs in the woods ; Nought but mundane mirth or sadness Broke the sylvan solitudes. Towering in thy noontide grandeur Could'st thou see thro' coming years, Man invade the realms of nature Man, with all his hopes and fears ?

ROPING HORSES. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 28 September 1872

THE CASTRAY ESPLANADE, HOBART TOWN. ROPING HORSES. Thia month we present our readers with an illustration of the manner in which wild horses are roped after being driven into the station stock yards. In various parts of the colony large mobs of horses are to be found inhabiting the upland fastnesses and moun- tain ranges, perfectly wild and untameable. These are btjng reunited from time to time by stragglers breaking away from mobs i brought overland to the various inland citiep, to meet the demand of the markets. Occa- sionally, on the run where it is known mobs are running wild, efforts are made by the station hands to reclaim these wild deni» zenB of the forest, and they give heavy work to the stockriders before they are able to cut out a few and yard them at the station. Then comes the process of roping, an operation fraught with considerable danger. Sometimes it is neoessary to run a horse into a yard by itself before it is pos- sible to put the halter on him. In the case of pa...

ECONOMIC USES OF SHELLS, AND THEIR INHABITANTS. (Continued.) [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 28 September 1872

ECONOMIC USES OF SHELLS, AND THEIR INHABITANTS. By HENRY WOODWARB, F.G.S., F.Z.S. ( Continued. J M y titus edulis, the common edible sea-mus- sel, although far less highly esteemed than the scallop or oyster, is nevertheless much in request as an article of food. I have^ not been able to ascertain the consumption of mussels in London, but in Edinburgh and Leith 'it is estimated at 400 bushels annually. Dr. Knapp states that from 30,000,000 to 40,000,000 are collected yearly in the Firth of Forth alone, and used as bait for the deep-sea fishery. They form no small item of consumption in the north of Ireland ; boatsfull being constantly sent to the Belfast market. The common cockle (Gardium edule) is largely used "in many parts of England for food. It is obtained at extreme low water on all sandy shores, living buried beneath the sand. Many other species of bivalve mollusca are eaten abroad ; for example, in North America, " hard " and "soft clams " (3fya and Lutra ria) ; whilst the g...
