THE AGRICULTURAL & PASTORAL PRODUCE VERSUS THE MINERAL. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 28 September 1872

THE AGRICULTURAL & PASTORAL PRODUCE VERSUS THE MINERAL. I THE Statistics for last year show, that the I customs value of the coal, gold, and silver, gold-bar, dust, sweepings, antimony, and shale exported, amounted to £2,445,160. Allowing that £550,000 worth of minerals were retained in the country-it will only represent the whole value to be-say £3,000,000. The agricultural and pastoral productions exported in. the same period, are valued by the same authorities at £6,15S,097, and then the food and other supplies furnished the inhabitants by the farmers and graziers amount to at least £13,000.000, or together to a sum of, at the least calculation, of nine- teen millions of money for the year. Now it is reported that the miners interest is to have, immediately organized, a depart- ment with a minister to direct it ; and the agricultural interest with a production of six to one is to be left to take care of itself. Is this prudent, is it just.? OUR HORSES. SUCH a manifest imp...

Accidents and Emergencies. MISCELLANEOUS ACCIDENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 28 September 1872

ättffleftt* ana <&iMvv¿tntíi$. MISCELLANEOUS ACCIDENTS. THE report of the commissioners appointed to inquire into the costs of prosecutions, the expenses of coroners' inquests, &c, gives numerous instances of the number and kinds of deaths from accidents, affording a curious insight into "the ills that haman life is heir to," and proving the truth of the words that "life hangs upon a thread." Among the causes of death we find those of falls of timber upon persons ; scalds and burnings ; injuries to various parts of the person from instruments ; gun-shot wounds ; falling from carts ; a man who brought the drags to a drowning person, when he suddenly burst out bleeding and died ; a man with a lacerated wound, caused by "skylarking" with a bottle ; falling from stone steps, and ladders ; drowning ; a captain jammed by the shooting of luggage on board a ship ; accidental suffocation ; falling down stairs ; falling from a book-case ; falling from a chair ; fall...

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

SUB SOIL DRAINING. IN our last issue, we gave a drawing of men digging drain trenches, showing the proper mode of laying the tiles, with full descrip- tions of the best manner of proceeding with the work, by Col. Warren. We shall now beat back, and first recommend some young intelligent men to devote themselves to this occupation. Five or six working men, with one of them possessing a knowledge of sur- veying and leveling, would soon make money at it ; and find it interesting and most profit . able, as they could take contracts, or work I at per rod or chain.

THE NEW THEATRE ROYAL. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 28 September 1872

THE NEW THEATRE ROYAL. THE history of the old Theatre Royal is re- markable for the vicissitudes of the manage- ment, and the conspicuous position occupied hy Mr. Coppin at various periods. When it was erected in 1855, it was pronounced at least fifty years in advance of the times ; but, strange to say, since its destruction by fire it has been condemned as being unequal to the requirements of the present day. Mr. Black commenced his dramatic season on the 16th July, 1855. On the 30th July, .1855, Mr. Coppin opened the Olympic Theatre (built to his order in Manchester, complete, with scenery, &c). The opposition was too powerful for the large theatre, and Mr. Black had to take refuge in the insolvent court. Messrs. Coppin and Brooke then purchased the Royal for £23,000. Mr. G. V. Brooke made his first appearance at the Royal on the 2nd July, and Messrs. Coppin and Brooke entered upon a wonderful career of prospe- rity until they dissolved partnership on the 26th of February,...

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

THE HONEY BEE. WE live in a practical age. Proposals of all sorts are too often, right or wrong, weighed against gold only : How much will it bring ? and will it make an instant return ?-are the first questions that are thought of, and asked ! Many profitable and excellent pro- posed investments and employments have been lost to this community by thus judging, and the unwise desire for such an immediate return. The Bee, ho doxibt, re- quires a little time to collect her sweets, and must have it ; aud also will demand a little personal assistance from her owner, before he can reap his money gold. And better it is so, for all parties concerned. Well, honey is now rising, being quoted wholesale at 3d. to4d. per lb., or 28s. a cwt., or £28 a ton, to 37s. 4d. a cwt. to £37 7s. Gd. a ton. This cut represents a portion of the inte- rior part of a comb. The upper portion of the comb contains honey, with the exception of the dark cells, which contain pollen. The lower are drone cells ; and t...

THE CASTRAY ESPLANADE, HOBART TOWN. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 28 September 1872

THE CASTRAY ESPLANADE, HOBART TOWN. So numerous are the visitors to Tasmania, and especially to Hobart Town, at this season 'of the yeal', that we have considered it an appropriate time to give a representation of a work which has recently been carried out by the energy of one person-L. R. Castray, Esq, A. C. G., whose name, by special au- thority of the corporation of the City of Hobart Town, it so deservedly bears. Many of our readers, and invalids in particular, who have in days gone by visited the me- tropolis of Tasmania, will remember how entirely it was destitute of any place for quiet recreation, say, after a day's weary toil in ascending Mount Wellington, fishing at New Norfolk, or riding to Brown's Kiver. The ordinary tourist wanted some place wherein he might " possess himself in much quietness;" the invalid a.spot where quiet might be obtained whilst the mind had oc- cupation, and the fresh, pure sea air might be inhaled. No site could possibly have been better adapted f...

Notices of [?]ein Books. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 28 September 1872

pottos ot $eto 33ooït& --- Illawarra and Manaro : W. Maddock, George-street, Sydney. We have received a handy little volume, bearing the above title, from the publishers -a book which, unassuming as it is in ap- pearance, is very creditable to author and publisher. It is the work of Alfred McFar- land, Esq., Judge, of the Southern Coast District, and is full of information, conveyed in a very pleasant manner. Those dwellers in Sydney who have not visited Illawarra, *' the Garden of Australia," have yet a great treat in store, and, when they" go, they can- not do better than take this little volume with them. They will find something in it -historical, legendary, or descriptive - in connexion-with almost every spot and object of interest-from the time, of Cook, to the present day. We have rambled Illawarra pretty thoroughly, and can bear witness to the correctness and usefulness of the facts introduced. The second part, Monaro, treats of a district that has been comparatively...

LYSTER AND CAGLI'S ENGLISH AND ITALIAN OPERA TROUPE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 28 September 1872

LYSTER AISID CAGLI'S ENGLISH AND ITALIAN OPERA TROUPE. OF all classes of theatrical entertainment that of the opera seems to please our citizens the best ; and after the long interval which has elapsed since their last visit, Messrs. Lyster & Cagli's company of "sweet singers" were double welcome. For their reception there was no better temple of music to be obtained than the old Victoria Theatre The loss of the ill-fated Prince of Wales Opera House is now more sensibly felt than ever ; and painters, upholsterers, &c, have had enough to do to render our one theatre pre- sentable. However, all has been done that could possibly be affected ; and the opera company had good reason to be satisfied with the reception they met with from the over- flowing audience at the opening performance. Two new faces and voices appeared in the first opera of the season, Faust, to a Sydney j audience, and did not appeal in vain. Both these ladies, Signora Bosisio and Signora Bibaldi, wer...

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

Ärientiffc Sotting1 SEA water ia rendered available for cooking purposes in America by the mixture of a little cane-juice. Wood soaked in a strong solution of common salt is thereby protected against decay, especially when placed underground. It should be known that the use of carbolic acid as a disinfectant, now so common every- where, is fraught with danger, as it is a I virulent poison. ' A compress of cotton saturated with a solution of alum, where excessive haemorrhage follows the extraction of a tooth, will be found serviceable. Its effects are powerful, but eutirely safe. FISH IN DEEP WATER.-A curious ex- periment was performed in Prance, recently, to ascertain whether ßsh could live in great depths of water. The fish were placed in vessels of water made to sustain 400 atmo- spheres, under which they lived and preserved their health. It is, therefore, concluded that fishes may penetrate to very great depths in the ocean with- impunity, as a pressure of 400 atmospheres corresp...

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

WATER SUPPLY. A meeting was convened by the Mayor of Sydney, on the 11th instant, to hear Mr. Woore, a member of the Water Commission, read a paper on his Warragamba Water Scheme for the supply of Sydney, and inter- vening country .with theis necessary fluid. The meetiug was held at the Exchange, and was attended by some of the most influential members of the community. The Mayor of Sydney. Mr. Michael Chapman, presiding. This subject is one of the most important of the present day ; for not only an 150,000 of the community directly interested in it, we may say vitally so, but many thousands more of the population will be more, or less, im- mediately ; with the whole country's pros- perity resting upon it, for the City of Sydney, and environs with its inhabitants amounting to more than a third of the people of the country, is the key-stone of the social struc- ture of New South Wales. The key-stone of a structure being injured only, shakes the confi lenee, but when decided I y injur...

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

AGE OP ANIMALS. IT is said, the hare, the rabbit, and the squir- rel, if they escape the gun of the sportsman, seldom outlive the seventh year. The average age of the fox is from twelve to fifteen years, the cat- about fifteen, and the wolf from fifteen to twenty years. The horse, in a domestic state, does not often live longer than from twenty to twenty-five years, and the ass ranges to about the same period. Old age prostrated "Copenhagen," the fa- mous steed of the Duke of Wellington, at twenty-seven years. The wild horse is sup- posed to attain a much greater age ; and an extraordinary case is on record, of even the domestic animal attaining sixty-two. years. Pigs have been known to live through thirty years, but the .average term is much less. The camel arrives at maturity in five years, lives to forty or fifty, and occasionally be- comes a centenarian. The dog has evidently passed the bounds of youth in his sixth or seventh year. Actual decrepitude com- mences about the eleven...

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

¿Pristo* anti ïnbenttottô* ' Blocks which are used in the rigging of ships were much improved, in 1781, by Mr. Taylor, and in 1801, by Mark J. Brunel, who invented a mode of making them, whieh was put into operation in 1808, and in 1815, was said to have saved the country £20,000 a year. The Lucifer Match is now so common that we have lost sight of the sulphur match which preceded it. Sulphur matches, however, were cried about the streets of ancient Rome in exchange for broken glass ; and fumigation with brimstone was a Roman practice. The Druids might possibly have been acquainted with the use of brimstone matches. PARCHMENT.-Thie article, of so much utility, especially for legal documents, was in vented by Eumenes H., King of Pergamus, 198 B c., in consequence of the prohibition of the export of papyrus from Egypt. THE HONEYMOON.-The origin of the honey- moon is said to be traced back to the Teutons, ancient inhabitants of Northern Germany, who, after the special wedding feast was...

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

<Bi\v tfmn. IN our last number, we spoke of the mode of clearing off timber, and its increasing value throughout the country. Every day we have to deplore the wanton waste of our forest timber, and its increasing scarcity. They will be, indeed, fortunate, who have had the prudence to preserve it. Well, to enclose our 640 acres, will require three miles of fencing. This should be of four rails, as a boundary line to prevent sheep or pigs trespassing. Or, it may be a three rail and one wire, which is better and stronger, as a panel is not then so easily re- movable. This will at once cost about £72 a mile, or £216. If there are neighbours, they must pay for half their side lines, or for one mile, which lessens your outlay, but, should the adjoining land be your own, why it is equally advantageous, the one fence serving both portions of land. Now you may bring live stock into your farm with prudence and security. Two teams, of eight bullocks each, should be your first invest...

Selected Poetry. THEW PLOUGHMAN. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 28 September 1872

Meiertet! ftoetrp»' THE PLOUGHMAN. -CLEAR the brown path, to meet his coulter s gleam ! Lo ! on he comes, behind his smoking team, With toil's bright dew-drops on his sun-burnt brow, The lord of earth, the hero of the plough ! First in the field before the reddening sun, Last in the shadows when the day is done, Line after line along the bursting sod, Marks the broad acres where his feet have trod ; Still, where he treads the stubborn clods divide, The smooth fresh furrow opens deep and wide ; Matted and dense the tangled turf upheaves, Mellow and dark the ridgy cornfield cleaves ; Up the steep hill-side, where the labouring train Slants the long track that scores the level plain ; Through the moist valley, clogged with oozing clay, The patient convoy breaks its destined way ; At every turn the loosening chains resound, The swinging ploughshare circles glistening round, Till the wide field one billowy waste appears, And wearied hands unbind the panting steers. These are the hands wh...

COMMENCEMENT OF THE RAILWAY WORKS, NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 28 September 1872

COMMENCEMENT OP THE RAILWAY WORKS, NEW ZEALAND. We present our readers with an engrav- ing of the vase presented to His Excellency Ihe Governor, asa memento of the inaugura* tlon of the railway works under the Messrs. Brodgen. It was designed, and every part of it executed, in Dunedin. It is composed of silver, resting upon a stand of polished totara, and stands about two feet in height. The plateau of the base represents a grass »nd fern covered hillock, every fern leaf and blade of grass being truthfully delineated in the chasing. Upon one side there blooms a fine tpecimen of the plwrmium tenax, and upon another a raupo plant (Typhis angustifolia). A large t ree fern springs from the centre of the hillock, forming the stem of the vase, and under its wide-spreading branches a moa and a kiwi are standing. The oval« shaped body of the vase rests on the top of the fern tree, and is decorated on two sides with locomotives, one of the latter bearing the inscription "Lady Bowen." The bod...

FOSSIL CLIFFS ON THE MURRAY. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 28 September 1872

FOSSIL CLIFFS ON THE MURRAY. THE Murray Uiver, which is acknowledged to be the most important river in Australia, rises in the Snowy Mountains, and flowing in a westerly direction, divides the colonies of Victoria and New South Wales until it arrives at the north-west bend in South Australia, where it takes a southerly direc- tion and empties itself into Lake Alexander, whence it Hows into the sea. The South Australian portion of the river is a noble stream flowing through dense forests of sandy scrub, and bounded, sometimes on one side and sometimes on thu other, by high cliffs, form- ing precipices from 150 to 500 feet high. Portions of these cliffs are very beautiful. Our engraving represents some of the fossil chits, thc stratification of which is us regular as if drawn by a ruler. They are full of gypsum-, the fossils being very beautiful, particularly the nautilus. A great many of the fossils, sometimes a whole precipice, is changed to selenite, Avhich, while retaining all the...
