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

VICTORIA INSURANCE COMPANY. THIS Company was established in 1849, and a Branch Office has been in existence for many years in New Pitt-street, Sydney. Agencies have also been established in most of the principal towns throughout the colony. The business transacted consists of fire and marine insurance, life assurance, and fidelity guarantees-the latter branch being of much convenience to Government and bank offi- cials, or others who require to give security for.their integrity in situations of trust. The company also grants life assurances, either separate or in connection with guaran- tees, by which system the payments made to obtain the guarantee may be applied to the purpose of making a provision for the sub- scriber's family. By this valuable arrange- ment, the premiums, instead of proving a tax on honesty, are converted into a lucrative investment for the assurers. - The system of public guarantee has been thoroughly tested, and its advantages are largely made use of both in G...

MARAVILLA COCOA.- NO breakfast table is confíete vntliout this delicious beverage.-The Globe says: "Various importers and manufacturers have at- tempted to obtain a reputation for their prepared Cocoas, but we doubt whether any thorough success liad been achieved until Messrs. Taylor Brothers dis- covered the. extraordinary qualities of Maravilla Cocoa. Adapting their perfect system of preparation to this finest of all species of Theobroma, they have produced an article which supersedes every other Cocoa in the market. Entire solubility, a delicate aroma, and a rare concentration of the purest elements of nutrition, distinguish the Maravilla Cocoa above all others. For homoeopaths or invalids we could not recommend a more agreeable or valuable beverage." Sold in packets only by all grocers, of whom also may be had Taylor Brothers' Original Homoeopathic Cocoa and Soluble Chocolate. Steam Mills, Brick Lune, Loudon. Export Chicory Mills, Bruges, Biflgium.-ADVT.

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

I " To PREVENT IRON PROM RUSTING.-Kero- sene applied with a cloth to stoves will keep them from rusting during the summer. It is, also, an excellent material to apply to all iron utensils used about a farm.. MOUNTING SEAWEEDS.-They are to be washed in several successions bf fresh water, and the last time floated quite naturally on to the sheet of paper, then dried between other paper and boards. Should be poisoned with sublimate solution. To CLEAR MUDDY WATER.-A little dis- solved alum is very effective in clearing muddy water. If thrown into a tub of soapsuds, the soap curdles and, accompanied by the mud particles, sinks to the bottom, leaving the water above clear and pure. In times of scarcity of water, this may be used again for washing clothes. Clean stoves, when cold, with blackhead ; mix with strong alum water. To MAKE BOILED ONIONS LOOK WHITE. -Skin them thoroughly. Put them to boil. When they have boiled a few minutes, pour off the water, and add clean cold water, and then ...

bailies* Column. Above all other features which adora the female character, delicacy stands foremost within the province of good taste. Fidelity, good-humour, and complacency of temper, outlive all the charms of a line face, and make its decay invisible. WOMAN'S LOGIC.

CAPE PILLAR, TASMANIA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 28 September 1872

CAPE PILLAR, TASMANIA. CAPE PILLAR, TASMANIA. THE southern promontory of Fortescue Bay, situated immediately to the eastward of the Biver Derwent, is principally composed of upright basaltic columns ; some of them standing alone, like tall obelisks, but the greater number forming groups of mimic towers and chimneys. ; ?, The coast rises considerably towards the south, where the mountain range terminates abruptly in the Cape Pillar-a grand basaltic precipice, or, rather,'an assemblage of preci- pices, which, seen from the sea, assumes every moment some new and striking aspect. Separated from the mainland only hy a strait of half a mile in width is Tasman's Island, a scarcely less striking feature in this grand scenery. Like the Cape Pillar, Tasman's Island is composed of basaltic columns, though on a less stupendous scale, but exceedingly fantastic in form, particularly on the southern side, where the taper spires and pinnacles seem a part of some ancient gothic edifice or dilapidate...

interesting; ¿Matfóttc& PHILADELPHIA is said to be the greatest manufacturing city in America. Her opera- tives number 96,983, and their gross earnings amount annually to 135,969,767 dollars. In the number of her employes she is stated to be 16,000 ahead of New York, notwithstand- ing the larger population of the latter. THE TIN TRADE.-It is estimated that the consumption of foreign tin during 1866 was 4,500 tons, against 3,000 tons in 1S65, 2,000 j tons the previous two years, and 950 tous in iSO L. This large increase is owing to the expansion of the tin-plate trade, no less than two million boxes of plates having been turned out during the year i860, which alone would consume upwards of 7,000 tons of tin in their manufacture. Last year the» value of the tin plates exported.reached £1,900,000, out of which the United States alone took £140,000 worth.

CORPORATION BATHS, DOMAIN. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 28 September 1872

CORPORATION BATHS, DOMAIN. Now that the summer is fairly setting in, attention will be directed to that luxury so easily attainable by all dwellers in Sydney a sea-water bath. The bathing establishments at the disposal of the citizens are four in number. The Corporation Baths, for gentlemen ; ditto, for ladies ; Robinson's Baths (all situated in Woolloomooloo Bay) ; and the baths at Dawes' Point, erected by the Corporation for the convenience of the dwellers at the northern and western extremities of the city. At present we have only to treat of the Corporation Baths intended for the males and situated on the eastern shores of the Domain, mid-way between the head of Woolloomooloo Bay and the point known as "Mrs. Macquarie's Chair." This has been the colonial swimming-place, par excellence, within the memory of our "oldest inhabi- tant." Many of our native-horn colonists will remember with feelings of pleasure the - Old Fig-tree, "where, as boys, we all used to swim," where, Leander-...

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

Cöe Jïlontï). OUR Legislative halls being still silent and deserted, the political void in our month's " sayings and doings" must inevitably re- main unfilled. Bub while our statesmen are compelled to rest their tongues from legisla torial duties, some of them have given addi- tional exercise to their teeth, by indulging in feasts more substantial than " the feast of reason and the flow of soul." Two of our great political leaders .have been engaged in a festive tour-"starring" it in the western provinces-and Bathurst seems to have been the favoured spot where each attained the pinnacle of his popularity. Representing, as they do, the opposing principles of our New, South Wales Legislature-both Mr. Parkes and Sir James Martin have each a strong body of adherents in the western portion of the colony ; and the enthusiasm with which they were received, and the ecidt with which the complimentary banquets passed off, pro- claims that each body of supporters is strong in numbers and zealo...

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

RELIGIOUS ANIMOSITIES. THERE is nothing particularly exciting in the news just to hand per the English Mail, but one item is of suffi- ciently serious import to cause some anxiety to any peace-loving community. We allude to the disturbed state of Belfast-owing to the collision between religious factions holding opposite views. As far as received in- formation extends, one death has been the result of this much-to-be-deplored riot, and, unfortunately, the victim was one of those acting in the interests of peace and order-an officer in the execution of his duty. It is strange that any religion having charity as its fundamental principle-such as any of the various forms of Christianity, should degrade itself into intolerance and bigotry : and yet it cannot be denied, that of "all " party feeling" that wherein religion (so-called) is concerned, is the most bitter and unyielding. "Would you comprehend all hell in one word ?-call it a spirit of faction," said an old writer, and he wrote t...

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

DUBING the whole of the month the tone of the share market has been very depressed. This may be accounted for by the immense amount of capital invested in mining ven- tures up to the present time-and the fact that nearly every company is makiog regular calls on the still unpaid capital. There can- not be the slightest doubt that many thou sands of unthinking people have been led to invest their every penny, in companies which were, one and all, expected to realise hand- some dividends before the application and allotment fees were expended. Mining after all, is not a species of in- vestment or speculation which will, in many cases, return a good "thumping" dividend in a very short time. In most cases it is a very slow-in all cases a very expensive operation ; and those who begin to see their truant coin returning after many months ought to consider themselves lucky dogs. If mining investors would-as a rule "boil down " every prospectus that allures them make up their minds to pay ev...

AUSTRALIAN WINES IN LONDON. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 28 September 1872

AUSTRALIAN WINES IN LONDON. THE Financier, writing on the subject, says : -"It is with the greatest satisfaction that we notice the introduction into this country of the wines of Australia, and observes that the prejudice which has been so long main- tained against them is being gradually over- come. And, forasmuch as the grape attains to a higher perfection in Australia than in any other wine-producing country, we see no other reason why its wines should not equal, if not excel, the produce of the European vineyards. We believe we are correct in stating that Australian wines of "various classes are now being specially imported, and, in the words of a conteraporary, 'both demand aud supply are increasing beyond the most sanguine calculations.' " The Medical /Finies and Gazette makes the following favourable report upon some samples of South Austra- lian and Sydney wines :-"Of the Australian wines at present on sale in London, we know three stocks ; one is the Tintaro, from South Aus...

I Marriage where Husband, supposed to be Dead, proves to be Alive.-Second marriage becomes void by the first husband provino to' be alive. The act only gives immunity from bigamy by the first husband being away for seven years, and not being heard of during that time ; but it . does not annul the marriage.-News of the World, 1S56. Definition of a Nuisance.-A factory in- jurious to the public health is prvmh facie a nuisance at common law, and the owners may be indicted. The definition of an indictable nuisance is, " whatever is in itself 1 more injurious to the general welfare than is compensated for by the amount of good it produces." Every case must be judged by its own circumstances, and regard must be had to distinctions between neighbourhoods brought to a nuisance, and nuisances brought to a neighbourhood. - Weekly Times, 1856.

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

METEOROLOGY. FEW records are so truly useful aud valuable to a community of people as the meteorologi- cal data. They are interesting to read, and most beneficial to study. They upset precon- ceived ideas or prejudices-or they confirm just assertions. They teach by recording by what has been, what may be again. They afford to the doubtful confidence-to the reckless and bold-prudence. They fore- warn-and by it, save much and many. In fact their study is insured safety to the far- mer, sailor, merchant, grazier, or manufac- turer, in all their engagements or speculations of life. And to the agriculturalist and grazier they are beyond all price We are therefore truly sorry to observe how the most trifling expenditure on this important subject matter is apparently begrudged. A government should teach and lead the people, not follow them. If the people are careless to their own good, and look to only present returns-it is the duty of an en- lightened ruler, to legislate for a futura bene...

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

COOKING. WE have spoken on frying and boiling, and now introduce to our readers a most inge- nious, useful, and labour-saving, as also economical working apparatus, in which, by a small amount of firing, food of various kinds may be cooked to perfection, with no danger of spoiling or injury, and with little or no required skill. As the drawing above explains, it is a boiler, with a closed com- partment within it, which is heated by the steam generated from the water boiling in the outer vessel. There is another compart- ment fitting on the top which is divided into more compartments, in which puddings and vegetables may be cooked at the same time, also by the supplied steam. The plan clearly explains the process of the operation. The inventor was an English gentleman named Warren, but this COOKER is an American adoption, with some slight alterations which they call improvements. The different divi- sions have handles provided to lift them on and off with. We think it would be anothe...

OUR SUPPLY OF MEAT FOOD. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 28 September 1872

OUR SUPPLY OF MEAT FOOD. EVIÎRY mail from Europe should prepare and warn us, that markets of the most ad- vantageous description, are opening for our agricultural and pastoral products. The diseases that are current there, among the live stock, and the further anticipated losses from the Rinderpest, which has again made an appearance in Russia and Germany, will, and has raised meat food to almost famine prices-and our Australian meat is demanded. Can we supply the markets with the quantity, and of quality, at a fair and reason- able price tinder our present old colonial system of agriculture and grazing, to meet the probable demand ? "We boldly answer no! On the 31st March, 1872, we had 2,018,269 head of cattle, 16,407,398 sheep, and only 214,529 pigs for the supply of meat food to our own population of about 525,000 people, and with a large demand from Vic- toria as well. Our system has hitherto ever been, with a few, we are soi ry to say, very few exceptions, to trust all to chanc...

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

STEAM PLOUGHING. HoRsrc-ploughing must soon take its place with stage-eoaching and hand-loom weaving. We had done our besb during the controversy touching the wages of agricultural labour to enforce the truth that the fund from which this increase of wages must issue would result from the more liberal employment of capital in agriculture.' It is now stated that in the mere work of tillage the yearly saving result- ing from the employment of steam would be £9,000,000. As to the indirect advantage, j Mr. Horsman has lately estimated the con sequent increase of crops at £18,000,000 a year. We are persuaded that nothing is more injurious to successful cultivation, especially clay laud, than the treading of the furrow by the hoofs of a team of horses and the feet of the ploughmen. It is proposed to form a large central association to provide numbers of steam ploughs for use in all parts of the country. We heartily wish the pro- posal may receive the full measure of success it deserves. I...

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

CHINESE RITES. .DUBING the month of August it is customary for the Chinese population to visit the graves of their relatives and friends in the various cemeteries, and go through certain ceremonies in conformity with the religious tenets held by the disciples of Confucius. Our en- graving is from a sketch made by our special artist on the occasion of one of these celebra- tions in the Cemetery last month. The ceremony apparently takes the form of a sacrifice to the names of the departed, to whom offerings of meat and drink are made, and incense is burnt. The day previous to the one selected, fowls and sucking pigs are cooked with great and peculiar care. Incense is prepared, and papers of various colours, some covered with silver, some with gold leaf, and some plain, having been offered with great ceremony to the Joss and blessed by the high priest, is set apart for the occasion. Hennessy's pure battleaxe pale brandy and the very best rice also undergo a similar sanc- tification, an...
