DATA USEFUL IN CALCULATING THE VARIOUS OPERATIONS OF FARM WORK-Continued. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 28 September 1872

DATA USEFUL IN CALCULATING THE VARIOUS OPERATIONS OF FARM WORK--Continued.   Length of furrow best adapted for the strength of horses in ploughing-706 feet. Extent of Land Ploughed by Fowler's Steam Plough.--Two acres per day, of ten working hours, for each furrow ; and, as there are four ploughs in Mr. Fowler s frame, making a set of four furrows, the quantity ploughed per day is eight acres. The best speed for working the plough is, per minute, 100 yards ; the usual draught for furrow-6¼ cwt. or 25 cwt. for the four-furrow frame ; the cost of steam ploughing, per acre, being 6s. 3d., or 1s. per cwt. draught per acre. Cost of Wire Rope for Fowler's System of Steam Plough- ing, to plough furrows of 400 yards ; double this extent being required for the return rope-800 yards--is £68. To work it economically, however, an extra half is required, making, in all, 1200 yards, at a cost of £102. This length will plough 1600 acres, which gives the cost per acre of wire rope at 1...

THE MELBOURNE FISH MARKET. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 28 September 1872

THE MELBOURNE FISH MARKET. With all its wealth and vast resource?, the oity of Melbourne, in regard to its supply of fisb, is about the worst served of any sea- board city in the world. It has been known to have received only fifty baskets dur ing a period of six weeks. Atother times, when a comign nent of trumpeters arrive from Tasmania, or MEMORIAL CUP PRESENTED TO SIR GEORGE ÜOWEK. the Gipps Land steamers deluge the town with flounders, there is a very brisk business doing, but on the average the supply is not sufficient to meet the demand. The fish for the Melbourne market generally comes from Western Port Bay and Queenscliff, but occasionally a few baskets of fiatheads or trout are sent up by the fishermen of Sand* ridge. In consequence of this scarcity fabulous prices are sometimes realised, such as 2s. Gd, per lb. for flounders, 9s. and 10a. per dozen for whitings, snappers from ls. upwards, and for mixed fish the average is 9d. per lb. The fish is . brought every night by ca...

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

MOUNT COOK. THE Waiho or Francis Joseph, glacier of Mount Cook lies about twenty miles south of Okarito, a small port forty-five miles distant from Hokitika, on the west coast of New Zealand. lb can be reached by a few hours' ride from Okarito, and it will well repay auy traveller who makes the journey. The glacier lies at the head of the right hand or southern branch of the Waiho River, and is about fourteen miles from the sea, the road to it being a natural one up the bed of the river. The following description is taken from an account published in the West Coast Times, giving an account of a visit paid by the Hon. Wm. Fox, Premier of New Zealand, to the glacier, in the month of March last : '* The scenery here is charming. The widen- ing river bed ; and ever winding, ever rush- ing stream j the changing patches of bush and scrub ; the lofty hills, backed by the towering mountains, clothed in their bright, snowy garments ; and then the glacier, picturesque and beautiful, bathed in...

[?]pes of Colonial Life. THE HUTKEEPER. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 28 September 1872

Types of Colonial Life. THE HUTKEEPER. BY GEORGE E. LOYAU. THE subject of the following sketch is a personage now so little known in the settled, or civilized districts of the colony, as to en- title him to the name of "a relic of bygone days." Hutkeepers were once common enough all over Australia, but the race has either died out, or sprung from its chrysalis state into something better than "crawl-   ers," for such is the appelation given them by other members of the colonial genus homo. A dozen years back it was not difficult to find a genuine hutkeeper on up-country sta- tions, but, nowadays, his place is vacant, and his services dispensed with. In the Northern Districts, however, on the Daw- son, the Comet, Warego, and like spots, where aboriginal laws of meum and tuum set the white man's vigilance at defiance, hut- keepers are yet needed, and command good wages. They are adjuncts to the shepherd- ing clan—a sort of offsiders to that respect- able fraternity. A hut...

METEORIC STONE, FROM BARATTA, NEAR DENILIQUIN. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 28 September 1872

METEORIC STONE, FROM BARATTA, NEAR DENILIQUIN. THE meteoric stone represented in our en- graving is now deposited in the Sydney Ob- servatory. Mr. Russell, the astronomer, while at Deniliquin, in April, 1871, was told by Mr. Robertson, solicitor, that a meteoric stone   existed at Baratta, the station of Henry   Ricketson, Esq., and thirty-five miles north-   west of Deniliquin. Mr. Robertson kindly acted as guide, and took Mr. Russell to Bar- ratta. The stone was found at the homestead, where it had been carried as a curiosity, and, unfortunately, many small pieces had been broken off by those who wanted a fragment. The large stone weighs 145 lbs., and some pieces 2 lbs. more. One large piece, esti- mated to weigh 60 lbs., had, some eight or nine years since, been taken to the news-   paper office at Deniliquin, and cannot now be found. Another piece, weighing about 10 lbs., has been lost at the station, so that the total weight m...

TRANSHIPPING PASSENGERS OFF THE NEW ZEALAND COASTS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 28 September 1872

TRANSHIPPING PASSENGERS OFF THE NEW ZEALAND COASTS. A LIVELY adventure frequently awaits tire passengers by mail steamers for the New Zealand, ports ; time won't permit of delay, and nolens volens they must land unless the weather renders it absolutely, impossible for the vessel to approach the coast. This is rarely the case, but it is no uncommon occur- rence for the swell to be so heavy as to make the transit from the steamer to her tender a matter of difficulty, and even of danger, to experienced voyagers. Our artist has caught the spirit of the scene, and from the lady who timidly ventures on the gangway, under the pilotage of the chief officer to the squalling magpie, whose cage has been upset by the pitching of the boat, the characters aptly represent the motley assemblage to be seen on such occasions, cowering to shun the jets of spray constantly breaking over the bulwarks, or facing the blast, as if they would defy old Boreas. Those on board the large steamer watch and laugh...

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

COOGEE BAY. THERE are very few people in Sydney unac- quainted with the beauties of this romantic sea-side resort ; but, for the information of those at a distance who have never actually visited the scene, we jot down a few of its peculiarities. Sydney is wonderfully situated with regard to proximity to healthful and beautiful plea- sure resorts. The Parramatta aud Lane Cove Pavers throw open their charms to those who delight in placid-water scenery ? the lovley shores of the harbour offer an in- termediate kind of enjoyment ; while our eastern seaboard presents all that the lover of Old Ocean in his various moods could wish for. Among these, there is,none more frequently visited than Coogee. The bay is a very beautiful one, being bounded each end by massive broken rocks and towering cliffs. As a rule, the ocean rollers break in with such force as to prevent bathing, except at one sj>ot at the north end where there is a shallow sheltered pool amid the rocks. At times the bay is ...

DENISON BRIDGE, BATHURST. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 28 September 1872

DENISON BRIDGE, BATHURST. DENISON BRIDGE, BATHURST. The new iron bridge over the Macquarie, at Bathurst, of which we give an engraving from a photograph, was built in 1869, to replace the old wooden bridge which was carried away by the great flood of 1867. The commercial importance of Bathurst, and its daily increasing traffic with the metropolis, by the farther extension of the Great Western Railway, rendered necessary the construction of a high level bridge over the Macquarie River, to secure at all times safe and easy communication with the most im- portant western town of the colony. Within a few months from the destruction of the old bridge, Mr. W. C. Bennett, the Commis- sioner and Engineer for Roads, brought out the design for the new iron bridge, with the view of having it made by colonial firms. Only the heavy iron plates and bars which could not be rolled in the colony were allowed to be imported ; all the other iron- work was made and put together in Sydney, previous to b...

Australian Natural History. THE WATER MOLE, OR DUCKBILLED PLATYPUS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 28 September 1872

Australian Raturai Sfótorp* THE WATER MOLE, OR DUCK BILLED PLATYPUS. THE water-mole is a most extraordinary lit- tle animal. It is usually about a foot and a half long, with the body stout, but some- what depressed in form and taperiug towards the extremities. The head is small, and is provided with a beak somewhat resembling that of a duck. Its feet are webbed, and are each provided with five claws. The male having, in addition, a large spur similar to that of a game cock, upon each of the hinder feet. Its tail is short, broad, and depressed. The fur is of a brown colour, very fine, close, and soft to the touch. The water moles burrow in the steep banks of a stream, near their favourite haunts, which, are the open and tranquil pools, where there is a good growth of aquatic plants. In some localities of this description they are very numerous, but are so timid aud wary that they are only to be shot by the exercise of great caution. The burrow has usually two entrances, one below and...

Chapters on Common Things No. 7.—COTTON—(Continued.) [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 28 September 1872

Chapters on Common (Ebing? No. 7.-COTTON-(Continued. ) IT is not our intention to follow the progress of the cotton maiuifacture after its arrival in England; this may be more advantageously done hy consulting the many ingenious writers upon the subject ; to us it loses its charms when it comes within the protection and encouragement of Acts of Parliament ; the improvements made by civilised man are - a matter of calculation ; the ingenuity and invention of savages, if we may so term the early inhabitants of Asia, are subjects of romance. We shall therefore conclude with some account of the cotton plant itself. The generic name of the plant producing the wool is Gossypium, and there are many varieties. Linnous enumerates five species ; Lamarck, eight ; while Cavanilles and Will denow recognise ten. It will be sufficient for our purpose to point out the three great distinctions : 1st, Herbaceous cotton ; 2nd, Shrub cotton ; 3rd, Tree cotton ; each of which has several varieties. We s...

Types of Colonial Life. THE COUNTRY JOURNALIST. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 26 October 1872

Cppes of Colonial £tfe* THE COUNTRY JOURNALIST. BY G. E. LOYATJ. I To describo truly the position of Austra- lian country journalism, without " treading on somebody's sore toes," or running the . risk of giving offence would, a century back, have been simply a matter of impossibility. In America, at the present time, so sensitive are newspaper proprietors and editors, that I a single word, "spoken in season," is suffi l .cient to put them on their mettle, or bring I about the climax of "pistols for two." Without desiring to offend, or in any way j act ungenerously to those with whom he has I been long associated, the author of this , sketch ventures to depict a few among many vicissitudes of their chequered life. For it 1 is a noted fact that there is not in the length I and breadth of the land a more thankless or j worse paid occupation than that of the country journalist. Responsible for all that appears in his paper, he dreads lest some I paragraph, or advertisement, calculated t...

A PERILOUS ADVENTURE. — PERFORMING THE ROPE AND BAR TRICKS UNDER A BALLOON. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 26 October 1872

A PERILOUS ADVENTURE. - PER FORMING THE ROPE AND BAR TRICKS UNDER A BALLOON BOLD as brass, my brother Tom and I applied to the manager of the Royal Conduit Gardens for an engagement to do the trapeze work. Of course, he wanted to Bee what we could do ; so a couple of ropes were fitted up over the stage of the little hall, a bar was tied across like a swing ; and on it we set to, turning overhanging by hands and toes and the back of our heads, and playing such daring pranks, that we brought down the house-that is to say, the lessee and his friends applauded loudly ; and I believe I never felt BO happy in my life as when he engaged us on the spot at a salary. For the whole of that season we were as successful as could be ; and, through constant practice, we got to be very handy, and did our tricks in a way which the newspapers called grace- ful ; but, as a matter of course, there were soon a host of imitators ; and at the beginning of next season, people wanted something new, and the ...

Literature. MEANING ME, SIR? [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 26 October 1872

literature* MEANING ME, SIE? IT is not only Scrub, in the comedy, who says, " I believed they talked of me, for they laughed consumedly." Scrub in the club says the same ; and in the drawing-room ; ay, and in the church. There is nowhere where Scrub isn't perpetually on the watch, for the faintest sound of laughter, in order to show his logical sharpness and prove that he, Scrub, is the subject of conversation. Nor does it need laughter to attract his notice. Hissing would do just as well. Even silence has its stings. "They must be thinking of me," he thinks, " they say so' little." "They must be trying to spite me -they look so happy." " She must be utterly forgetful of me - she smiles so sweetly." Scrub, in short, is a disgusting fellow, whom all of us meet fifty times a day-apt to take offence at imaginary neglect, attributing false motives to the most reason- able actions ; egotistic, exacting, self-tor- menting-a prose Othello, whose Iago is his own insufferable vanity, which m...

Poetry. LAUNCHED. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 26 October 1872

LAUNCHED. 'NEATH a smiling sun and a wooing gale, I set my father's boats to sail, By one, by two, by three ; One was laden with First Love's vow, One bad Fortune's flag at her prow, One, Fame had freighted for me. Never a weather sign I scanned, As my gay birk left the flowery land On a merry morn of May ; Down swept a squall of Doubt and Chance, And wrecked on a shoal of Circumstance, My first fair venture lay. Gravely T looked to rigging and rope, Ere bathed in the lustre of golden hope, My next to the open bore ; But fierce and treacherous rose the waves, More ships than mine found fathomless graves, Ere the noontide storm was o'er. To the lulling whispers of Art and Song, I framed my last boat true and strong, And decked her with joyous dreams, And sent her'forth with a rosy smile, Tinging her silken sails the while, Caught from the sunset's gleams. But, oh, she never returned again, O'er the wild waste water my sad eyes strain, In the sickness of hope deferred ; And I think so...

CAPE JAFFA LIGHTHOUSE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 26 October 1872

CAPE JAFFA LIGHTHOUSE, S. A.-SEE PAGE 16. MOUNT TORTESSE, CANTERBURY, N. Z. CAPE JAFFA LIGHTHOUSE. , I * The Margaret Brock Beef, off Gape Jaffa, has long been the dread of mariners on the south-west coast of South Australia, owing to its prominence from the general line of the coast, the lowness of the shore, and the known uncertainty of the currents, by which even regular traders, commanded by captains of long experience, are suddenly found to be miles out of their course. At last lt was determined to erect one of Mr. G. Wells's screw-pile lighthouses, of which so many existed in different parts of the world. It was found beyond doubt that the small amountbf resistance to the waves, the faci- lity with which the piles could be screwed into rock, and the small cost at which they could be erected compared with stone struc- tures' or even with cast-iron light-houses, were advantages not to be ignored, and con- sequently in 1867 Mr. Wells submitted a design-the one now carried out-whi...
