The New Parliament. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 22 January 1870
The New Parliament. THE names of thc representatives returned in thc general election being now fully known, it is time to review the list of members returned, to see how far the expectations enter tained as to the result of the appeal to the peo ple have been fulfilled, and what opinions may reasonably be formed as to the action of the new Parliament. There will of course be three additional elections : one, as already notified by proclamation in tho Gaze tte, arising out of the acceptance of office by Mr. Cowper ; and two ia consequence of the double return of Messrs. Parkes and Wisdom, who it is gene ral ly believed will sit for Kiama and for the Northern Gold-Fields, leaving East Sydney and the Lower Hunter each to elect another repre sentative. It cannot be supposed that the election for East Sydney will pass off without another sharp contest ; and it is not impro bable that there will be a similar contest for the Lower Hunter. Mr. Cowper, it may be assumed, will be returned un...

Spontaneous Combustion of Wool. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 22 January 1870
Spontaneous Combustion of Wool. S TT appears from the Queensland papers that* | -?- timely discovery has just averted disastersof i the most frightful character-the burning of 't ships at sea. Two vessels were about to sail Û for England- with cargoes of colonial produce including large quantities of wool ; one was I still receiving cargo at Brisbane, t^e other ha fl- S completed her loading and gone down to the fe Bay, when happily it was discovered that the fi wool in each of them had begun to heat, [ j Several bales were relanded, opened, dried "f and repacked. The report of these facts has ii naturally excited a good deal o' comment. \l It is remembered that within à short time two ships sailing from Queensland, ; and one from New Zealand, with . í wool, the Fiery Star, the Blue Jacket, and the Omar Pasha, haye been ... destroyed by fire And the * thought ' of the terrible doom to which the crews and passengers on the two ships .' above referred to would almost inevi'ab'y have ¡...

German Malleable Castings. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 22 January 1870
German Malleable Castings. Fon tho production of this material, says "Van Nos trand's Magazine," most of the German founder's use first fusion pig free from sulphur and phosphorus, or Scotch pig. Styrianlso furnished a suitable iron, winch eau only be used in the north of Germany, however, on account of the expense of transportation and high duties. On ticoount of the competition of wrought iron, great cheapness is very essential to its salo The makers keep secret the brand or grade of iron which they employ, but it is well understood that thc brands arc not thc samo in dill'crent establishments. The iron is melted in plumbago crucibles, holding about 30 kilogrames. They ure covered with porcelain lids to keep out impurities and cinders, which reduce the high boat requisite for the process. Thc fire in which tho crucibles aro placed is from .030 m. to 9-10 m. square, and is surrounded with bricks of porceliun earth. The use of the _ blast is not advantageous, since thc economy of ti...
Everitt's Acoustic Telegraph. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 22 January 1870
Everitt's Acoustic Telegraph. A series of experiments with tho nowly-invented Acoustic Telegraph were made on October 7th, ut tho Fulton Ferry House, New York, in the presence of a number of gentlemen, who were as much astonished as gratified at thc accuracy of the general messages that were transmitted by tho acoustic telegraph through wires connecting two houses 150 yards from eacli other. Tho first message sent was that of the Kev. Dr. Deems: " He that hath cars to beal-, kt him hear." The lt ev. Dr. Hall asked: "Howlong before thc new bridge is to be built, and what about stock in it ?" Mr. Samuel Orchard inquired: "Can a man bo held responsible for the place of his birth without having been con sulted by his 2>arents?'' Tho Tribune reporter asked: ' What is the time at tho ferry?" and Dr. Boscowitz inquired " the relativo diagnosis between rubéola, and scarlatina." These messages were all transmitted safely and much moro accurately rendered than ever could have been anticipa...
Swing Fences Across Streams. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 22 January 1870
Swing Fences Across Streams. TUE accompanying diagrams represent a swing fence invented, though not, we believe, [patented, by an enterprising Yankee, many years ago. The end sought to bc attained, by running fenccB across streamlets and small rivers, liable to nm dry at certain seasons-for it will be understood, such things would be out of tho question on navigable rivers-is to prevent cattle, horses, and other farm stock, from cross ing into strange paddocks and enclosures, dur ing low water, or during its entiro absence from its accustomed courses. It has never been very difficult to run a substantial fence of posts and long rails across the bed of such a stream ; and it has quito answered .all expectations, perhaps, till a flood came, and swept it away, and thus necessitated tho building of another. As three or four floods have ocourred in the course of a twelvemonth, necessitating the building of so many fences, considerable annoy ance was experienced by the owners of property ...
Weather, Crops, and Pastoral Matters. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 22 January 1870
Weather, Crops, and Pastoral Matters. Moat of the wheat in the Southern districts has been got in, and notwithstanding tho drawbaok of the rust, the harvest is plentiful. Steady rains are setting in, and the grass and potatoes are looking all the botter for it. The threshing machines are at work in the cost districts where there is still abundance of grass and water. In the "Western districts, the growers seem appre hensive that serious consequences may result from an overflowing supply. No wheat has yet been brought forward at Orange, and it was considered that the opening price was likély to be only about 3s per bushel. A. meeting of farmers was to be hold to consider the course that was best to be adopted in the crisis, but the result has not yet reached us. A large yieldof wheat is reported in the Braidwood district. The locality is Monkitteo, on the estate of Robert Maddrell, Esq., the paddock being let to Mr. Anthony Vider, a resident of the town. This patch of ground had lain...
Inoculation for Pleuro-Pneumonia. II [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 22 January 1870
Inoculation for Pleuro-Pneumonia. No. II. IN continuing our remarks on Hie report by the chiof inspector of stock, on tho late inquiry on inoculation for plcuro-pneumonia in cattle, wo believe we may assume that its efficacy has established itsolf in tho minds of a very largo majority of cattle owners. We find that out of 279 returns made by owners who in oculated their herds (and wc will only now deal with this class of returns), 237 aro in favour of inoculation, and only 17 against it ; tho remaining 2ó not having oxprcsscd an opinion. Wc aro inclined to think I that tho opinion of so largo a majority, who have had ocular demonstration of the beneficial results of in oculation, will go far in convincing tho most sceptical of its efficacy, moro especially when we look at tho strong languago in wliieh tlicso favour ablo opinions aro given. They aro expressed in either ono or other of tho following terms : " It ameliorates tho disease," " was satisfactory," " higlily satisfactory," "...
