To the Editor of the Town and Country Journal. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 22 January 1870

To the Editor of the Town and Country Journal. Sir,-I take this opportunity to point out to tlie "New South Wales Cricketing Association what my opinion Ls how they should act in preparing for the forthcoming intercolonial match. . I would select W. Caffyn, Coates, E. Gregory, D. Gregory, Thompson, II. Hewitt, I). Dickson, Laurence. S. Jones, A. Park, E. Sheridan, Oatley, and Stack. These men I would put to work at once. The professionals I would engage to bc on the Domain ground every day, say at ll o'clock, not only topractice themselves but to improve the gentlemen players, whose business coidd not give them the whole dny for practice, but, no doubt, could obtain a couple of hours for that purpose every day. The improve ment that we should see would be wonderful. The abovementioned men have cricket in them, and it only wants practice to bring it out. Previous to the team leaving for Melbourne, I should have a two days' match, the eleven against twenty-two, giving a prize bat to t...

FLYING SQUADRON REGATTA. (From the Hobart Town Mercury.) [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 22 January 1870

FLYING SQUADRON REGATTA. I (From the Hobart Town Mercury.) j The most successful demonstration in honour of the Flying Squadron's visit to Tasmania, .ind the event most calculated to impress upon the Fleet the essential characteristics of the port and the people, was the Eegatta which came off at Macquarie Point. Of course, the iiresence of five of her Majesty's ships of war in the river, and the fact that the principal part of the races was to be sustained by Squadron crews, gave additional interest to the proceedings. There were sixteen races, and the usual wind-up with a duck hunt. Eleven of the races were by Squadron boats, and one of them, the Copper Punts' Race, with shovels, although common enough in regattas at seaports at home, was decidedly a novelty to the great majority of people here, and caused an amount of merriment which spiced considerably the events of the day. The racing itself was for thc most part good ; but it might have been an improvement if the squadron men ...

Aquatics. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 22 January 1870

Aquatics. The gentlemen fonning the committee for carrying out the Anniversay Regatta on the 26th instant are using every exertion to bring the affair off a complete success, and have secured the magnificent clipper ship Sobraon, 2130 tons, Captain Elmslie, as flagship for the occasion. An additional race bas been placed on the pro gramme, for all sailing boats not exceeding twenty-seven feet overall, for which a prize of, £10 has been voted. For this event it is likely several of the smaller boats of the Prince Alfred Club will enter. There appears no likelihood at present of a contest between Mr. Par bury's yacht Xarifa and Mr. Dangar's yacht Mistral, as the former's racing sails have not yet been completed; so that the first-class yacht race will most likely fall through. A challenge has, however, been given by Mr. Parbury to sail the Mistral a private match, but no steps towards its acceptance have been yet taken. All the fastest sailing crafts that our harbour can boast of will...

Pedestrianism, &c. ANNIVERSARY DAY.-Tho programme of amusement offered for visitors to the Albeit Ground for "Wednes day next may be found in our columns. It is certainly a fine one, and will doubtless prove attractive to holi day seekers. Amongst the numerous novelties it will be seen that a number of events are to be contested by persons blindfold. These will surely cause laughter. '! he great events of the day are those for the Anniver sary Handicap, for which we understand all our great pedestrians intend to compete. The distances are two miles, one mile, and a half-mile. The chief feature in the programme is the Bicyelè Steeplechase, which must be seen to be appreciated. The competitors, on their iron horses, have to run a course of half a mile, which is obstructed by six hurdles and two water jumps, j these have to be crossed, but in what way is a matter ¡ for after discovery. This novel style of steeplechase I has caused much sensation in Paris, and also in Vic ! tori...

Is Cut or Uncut Hay the Best?. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 22 January 1870

Is Out or Uncut Hay the Best ? . THE question whether it is bettor to cut hay into chan* or to feed it to cattle in its long state, is one that has lately excited much discussion and difference of opinion in England and America. Tho report of the United States Department of Agriculture states that many and careful experiments have been made in keeping horses upon cut and uncut food, but no very definite conclusion has been como to, or at least bas not been authoritatively announced as to tho relative advant ages of each method. Some experimentalists arc very strongly in favour of cut hay, while others aro equally positive that \mcut hay-is most advantageous. The truth is, that under Homo circumstances, and for some purposes one way is best, while the other method, under other circumstances and for other purposes, i may bo preferable. I Thomas S. Lang, Esq., thc author of an Agricultural Essay which gained a prize, reports that ho has made several thorough aud careful trials in keepi...

Tooth's System of Sugar Making. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 22 January 1870

Tooth's System of Sugar Making-. OF tho system BO fully explained by Mr. Tooth in a lecture at Maryborough, the Produce Market Meview says, ' ' In an ordinary vacuum pan, the top of the liquor alone forms the evaporating surface, and evaporation would, of course, be more rapid were a greator portion of the liquid exposed. Tho most notable feature of Mr. Tooth's invention consists in pumping tho jidce down from the top of tho vacuum pan, at the moment of granulation, through a rose. The juice is thus distri buted in small streams through the air contained in the evaporating vacuum chamber, and the surface exposed, as compared with tho old system, is said to bo as 100 to 50. Tho evaporating chamber differs from the old vacuum pans in shape, being, to speak roughly, I a long cylinder, with the ordinary round pan at the top I and bottom. The juice, before reaching tho evaporating I chamber, is pumped up through a number of pipes I surrounded by steam in a cylinder. The followmg advantag...

THE CULTIVATOR. Noxious Weeds of Cumberland and Camden. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 22 January 1870

THE CULTIVATOR. Noxious Weeds of Cumberland and Oarnden. THE Progress He-port of tho Select Committeo of tho last assombly on the Cumberland and Cam don Bathurst-burr and Thistlo Bill, as founded on tho evidence of J. A, Badgery, Esq., Mr. J. H. Balsh, tho Hon. Sir William Macarthur, Knt., M.L.C., and J. Morrice, Esq., M.P., leads to tho inference that, while miich may bc done by tho self-roliant olTorts of our farmers and graziers towards tho eradication of tho noxious weeds complained of, thcro is really somo necessity for legislating from tho subject, in OIN tor to their extirpation from unoccupied Government lands, it being almost impossiblo for land owners to keep them down if they aro allowed to blossom on Crown lands, and the seeds pormittod lo blow ovor tho wholo country. But, generally speaking, tho provisions of Mr. Roberta's Bill wcro considered too peremptory. Indeed a communication from W. R.

Sugar Cultivation in Queensland. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 22 January 1870

Sugar Cultivation in Queensland. AT ¡I mooting of tho "Wido Bay Furmor's Association, Mr. Hill, of Scarva, contributed thc following essay upon cane cultivation upon thc Mary Uiver : There are three leading varieties of cane cultivated in this district-tho Bourbon, the Otaheitan or Yellow, and tho Ribbon. T will confine my attention to the two former. The Bourbon grows faster and larger than tlie yellow, and from tlie first trashing to the final cutting is far easier worked than the yellow. Two acres of Bourbon can bo trashed and cut quicker than ono acre of yellow. The latter carries a very broad overhanging leaf, -with sharp sickle edges, and there aro certainly many points in its favour ; it is seldom known to blow down in gales of wind that have covered thc ground with. Bourbon canes. I have never seen a yellow cane disturbed. It is not affected by that disease _ to which Bourbon plant cases aro so liable, thc twisting and tieing up of thc top leaves, giving them a miserable app...

Care of the Horse. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 22 January 1870

Care of the Horse. IT is not tko amount of food uud caro given to th» horse that insures his health and good condition, but the times and manner of application. Thero arc times when a horse should have a full feed, and other times when ho should have a small ono. The heaviest feed should be in the evening after his day's work is done. His appetite is then gratified; he lays down to rest and will most likely lay till morning. Hy this time his food has digested, his system ia rested, ho gets up refreshed with a good appetite. His morning meal should not be an overfull one- not so full as that of the previous even ing. Ho should be driven or worked moderately for the first hour or two. After this his speed or labour may bo inorcascd if there is any urgent necessity for it. His mid-day feed should be smaller than that of morn ing or evening-it should be thc smallest meal of the day, and he will travel or work on it dining the afternoon with more vigour and less exhaustion than he would'...

WHEAT AND FLOUR.-Tho reports of partial failui-e of tho crops in South Australia has caused moro demand ; but as our own crops arc so abundant in the wheat-growing districts, ATO will not require much of the imported article.

MAIZE.-Since last report tho prico has advanced lOd per bushel at Melbourne, and as the present stocks held thcro are getting low, wo may expect a further rise of at least ls por bushel before the now crop is fit for use.

The results of Want of Method and Manure in Farming. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 22 January 1870

The results of Want of Method and Manure in Farming. It Í3 painful to look on oui- hills and valleys in the county of Cumberland, the metropolitan district of the colony, and to see the pastures and fields covered with thin, scanty crops, where, twenty or thirty years ago, rich harvests were gathered, our farmers now purchasing their flour, from the importers, and paying freight ever a distance of thousands of miles, with commissions and merchants' profits, while at the same tune we are con tinually saluted with complaints that " farming does not pay." But there must be something wrong. Xo particle of matter has leen destroyed since this globe first commenced its journey round the sun ; but the particles of manurial matter that go to make crops, have become most sadly displaced on most of the farms. The same good atmosphere still encloses the earth that was enjoyed by our father«, abounclimg in 90 per cent, or more plant'forming material. So that there seems to be no lack, only the ...

I Pacts about Vine Growingand Wine Making.

"W are beginning to gather the fruits of experience, and i become day by day more sensible that theory howev» valuable--that a knowledge of what is done in otlu countries, however correct and comprehensive, cannc make up for that actual practical insight into the sui ject which is io be obtained only by an attentive obse: vation of the facts oceurrin,' before our own eye*, an which will in many cases be found opposed to tb opinions we have'.previously formed from reading c the communications of others.
