A Triumph for Dummyism. [Newspaper Article] — The Capricornian — 30 January 1875

A Triumph for Oumm/ism. The decision of the Judicial Committee of Ok Privy Council in the case of Barton against Muir, carried home on appeal from the Supreme Court of New Sooth Wales, deserves more than a passing notice. In the absence of lnionnatioa as to tile precise grounds upon which the determination of the nicest tribu nal capable of taking cognisance of colonial cases proceeds, it is, of course, impossible to estimate the full effect of the judgment, but looked at in the light of the frcte dmdosed in the Sydney Court it deals a severe blow at what are known in these colonies as the prin oples of liberal land legislation. It offers a dinxi premium to evasions of the law whereby the State is subjected to pecuniary loss, and the safeguards against monopoly provided by the T^TEMlrtun; rendered practically worthless In short, it tends to frustrate the obvious de signs of Parliament with regard to the «etUe ment of bmall freeholders upon the soil, by - directly legalising what thr...

Batter, yet not Butter. [Newspaper Article] — The Capricornian — 30 January 1875

Butter, jet not Butter. A Pasts correspondent writes : — ' Pass ing some days since along the Rue du Pont Neuf, I was pushed by a crowd gframig into the windows of what ap peared to me a great barter-shop, from the foot-pavement to the carriage-road. I noticed on the shop-front various inscriptions — such as ' More wholesome than butter,' Less than half the price,' Goes twice as fer.' My curiosity to know what this wonderml product might be was very transient. I supposed the flaring announcements to be snmp kind no more about them. But sub sequently I have resd not only m flailing ffivnii^p^wnts, but in -those much more highly-paid invita tions to the public to spend money, ele gandy-written articles oiled reclames, in announcement that a discovery had been made of a substance which has not only all the good qualities of batter but is devoid of the had ones, tt is never rancid or indigestible; and ''*'^ of keeping good for only a few days win last for a twelvemonth- Had I only »*« t...

I have fcequendy, to be sure, bad a dog in my possession when I was a boy, but die possession was acquired by per suasiveness, and was but temporary, as my parent on my (atbsrV side entertained morbid ' prejndiee sgeiust dogs, and never missed an : opportunity to show bis aversion. 1 Tbe dog I refer to as bang strictly my own, ' ru one I bought of a nun named Bobbins, who lives some distance down town. I gave bun two dousrs tar die dog, on his own repre- i sentations. He said it w*s a good animal, but | had a little more of life and energy ttaii were j proper in a dog where there were hens on die premises. I don't keep bens, to this was no objection in my case.

STATION, GARDEN, & FIELD. WILL MANURING PAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Capricornian — 30 January 1875

?SI ? rS 1 STATION, GARDEN, d FIELD, f WILL MAXTBINW PAY? CojjOntal fanners are much in the habit of fairing crop after crop off the land without making it any return in the shape of manure. No doubt the principal reason for bo doing is that, havine in many instances good virgin and allarinl soil to work with, it is thought Jfti*. as much as possible of the returns from the land may be added to the credit account at the funk without anyone being to an appreciable extent the loser. This is to all intents and purposes a mistake, and such it has already been found out, to the sorrow and cost ? of hundreds of landowners in the colonies. th It matters not how rich the land is when first brought into cultivation, unless systematic measures are adopted from the wry com mencement to keep the soil in heart, deteriora tion wOl begin to show itself in some unpleasant and TimnistakeaMe manner after a few years ; and while the harvests fall off in quantity, they -will also suffer in quality, by ...
