NEW ZEALAND SCENERY. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 26 October 1872

SOURCE OP RIVER KOWAI, WEST COAST ROAD, CANTERBURY, N. Z. NEW ZEALAND SCENERY. I In this issue we present oar readers with some sketches of New Zealand scenery. In the province of Canterbury the mountainous range of which Mount Tortesse forms a prominent item Is particularly worthy of remark. It is distant about fifty miles from Christchurch, the capital of the province, and is the first rising ground met with on the road from that city to Hokitika. Until this range of mountains is reaohed the coach road travels through a vast and fertile, though somewhat monotonous plain, only I broken here and there by a settler's farm or a sheep station. These mountains in all the glowing heat of a New Zealand summer retain their summits crowned with eternal snow. One of our engravings very graphically portrays this range of snow-capped hills. The hills in the vicinity are densely wooded, and the bash abounds with native birds and wild pigs. At the foot of the range winds the Kowai river, along w...

£tafóents ana <Cmergtmfe& I -- MISCELLANEOUS. Dangers of Window-Gleaning. - Many sei'ious accidents are continually occurriug to housemaids, engaged in the perilous employ- ment of window-cleaning. The lives, of workmen are likewise often in jeopardy, from the want of some secure apparatus for repairing windows, painting the frames; &c. In the list of patents for 1S54, we observed that an invention was proposed for the pre- vention of accidents of this nature, relating to the portable stages usually employed by glaziers, painters, and others, to enable them to stand outside windows. The patentee I (Mr. F.

Upon these screws two champs of wood or metal are placed, which may be e...

NORTHWARD, HO! [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 26 October 1872

NORTHWARD, HO ! THE discovery of gold in the Port Darwin territory has had the visual effect on the I nomadic portion of our population, and a considerable number have already departed from our shores, bound for this new El Dorado. The expenses attending a trip to the Darwin are very great, seeing that, from the nature of the country, it is necessary for intending diggers to take with them tools, stores, tents, and, in fact, every other appli- ance they will need on the ground. On ar- riving at Port Darwin they have some two hundred miles to travel until they arrivé on the gold field, and at Port Darwin many will have to remain, if they omitted to take with them the means of transport. Money is very scarce,- and a man should have at least £50 to spend if he expects the shadow of a chance. A short time since, we gave an illustration of the nature of the jungle which has to be encountered, and, provided the first prospectors are lucky enough to find gold in good payable quantities, th...

THE REVOLUTION IN PERU. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 26 October 1872

THE REVOLUTION IN PERU. THE central states of South. America may well be styled par excellence the country of modern earthquakes, and somehow it hap- pens that the characteristics of its people appears to have received a physical taint cor- responding to the convulsions in which na- ture in that tropical land appears to delight. On Monday, the 22nd July last, an attempt was made in Lima to upset the Government of Peru, by the brothers General and Colonel Gutierrez. They arrested and imprisoned the President, Senor Balta, who was removed to the police bead-quarters at San Francisco, where he was left in custody. The troops then left the public square, and every- thing appeared to have resumed good order and quietness. It was noticeable, however, that the commercial part of the community had been profoundly affected by the fore going scene, had closed their shops and gone home to contemplate on the instability of human foundations. The re3ult was that commerce was at a stand-still ; e...

Ladies' Column. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 26 October 1872

---gabie*' Column* ENGLISH AND CONTINENTAL WOMEN.-On the Continent women are proel aimed supreme, hut we fancy them, with more or less justice, as maintaining their empire by various clan- destine and reprehensible arts. With us-we may say it without bravado-they are both free and unsophisticated. You feel it most gratefully as you receive a confident bow from a pretty young girl in her basket phaeton. She is very young, and very pretty ; but she has a certain delicate breadth of movement which seems to you a pure gain, without imaginable taint of loss. She combines, you reflect, with respectful tenderness, the ut- most of modesty with the least possible shyness. Shyness is certainly very pretty when it is not very ugly ; but shyness may often darken the bloom of genuine modesty, and a certain feminine frankness and confi- dence may.often incline it towards the light. How TO QUIET A BABY.-As soon as the squaller awakes, set it up, propped by a pillow, if it cannot sit alone ; then s...

WHALING IN TWOFOLD BAY. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 26 October 1872

WHALING IN TWOFOLD BAY. THE whales caught ia Twofold Bay are mostly those known as hump-backs, but oc- casionally a few black ones are captured. They begin to pass to the northward between the months of May and August, and return to the southward between August and the end of November. The whale, monster though it is, has a number of enemies in the deep, such as thrashers, porpoises, and cow fish ; these are armed with teeth. On the contrary, the sperm, the fin-back, the sul- phur bottom, the hump-back, and the gram- pus whales have whalebone in the upper jaw but no teeth. Since Twofold Bay was first settled by Europeans it has been noticed that "the killers" visit the bay every year, and watch for their prey at a point of the bay called by the whalers Leather Jacket. Prom this lair, as the whales pass along, they issue out and attack them, and very often kill the smaller whales and run them on shore. As soon as the unsuspicious monster is seen, the killers are off to the battle ; f...

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

The Month. Now that the Parlia- mentary recess has been prolonged to the 5th of November, a considerable portion of matter " to be talked about" is lost to us. For a time we could fall back on affairs per- taining to mines and mining, but even these begin to fail us now. The once familiar query of " How's tin?" is only res- ponded to by a lugu- brious shake of the head, and an emphatic '' Tin is dull, sir." Even the noble metal partakes of the uni- versal heaviness, and nothing is doing or likely to be done, save in a few favoured MEDAL OF THE YASS PASTORAL A.ND AGRICULTURAL ASSOCIATION. claims which have gone up to veiy high figures Under the circum- stances it appears both justifiable and conve- nient to fall back on the lately discarded key-stone of conversa- tion- the weather.

THE VALUE OF THE HOE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 26 October 1872

TFTE VALUE OF THE HOE. HOEING is one of the much neglected opera- tions of which few have considered the value, and to keep down weeda is generally the sole object of using the hoe. Certainly that is a good object, and if these observations quicken the vigilance of gardeners who are a wee bit careless upon the growth of groundsel, couch, bindweed, and other rampant weeds among their crops, it will serve one good purpose. ' But it must have frequently come under the notice of practical men, that a piece , of cabbage or cauliflower frequently hoed j between, even to the extent of working the j instrument very near their roots, always grow I to finer proportions than similar breadths left to take care of themselves, with the ground trodden between to the hardness of a Babylonian brick, " to keep the moisture in | and the heat out. " In such a case it is made 1 evident that there is a virtue in the hoe beyond the killing of weeds that take away the nourishment required by the crop ; and...

THE SYDNEY WATERWORKS, BOTANY. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 26 October 1872

THE SYDNEY WATERWORKS, BOTANY. IN the early days of the colony, Sydney derived its supply of water from a small stream about a mile and a half in length, whose source was in the neighbourhood of Park-street, and point of discharge in Sydney Cove. On the margin and near the outlet of this stream, the inhabitants cut chambers and various excavations in the rock, which were filled by stopping the stream. Their use was, in some cases, to preserve the water for dry seasons, but chiefly for the purpose of washing clothes, fish, and other things, which operation was largely carried on in the locality. The excavations were called tanks, hence the watercourse was called the Tank Stream, which name it bore as long as any remains of it were left open. It has long since been covered in, and used as a sewer. The first project for increasing the water supply of Sydney is due to a Mr. John Busby, a government engineer, who, about forty-five years ago, proposed to drive an adit or small tunnel thro...

THE SIZE OF LONDON. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 26 October 1872

THE SIZE OP LONDON. ACCORDING to the last census, London has a population of 3,883,092. This is more than the combined populations of New York, Philadelphia, Brooklyn, St. Louis, Chicago, Baltimore, Cincinnati, Boston, New Orleans, San Francisco, Buffalo, and Alleghany City, Pa. To lodge this vast multitude, 777,000 dwellings are required, and the people con- sume annually about 4,480,000 barrels of flour, 420,000 bullocks, 2,075,000 sheep, 49,000 calves, 61,250 hogs, and one market alone supplies annually 7,043,750 head of game. This, together with 5,200,000 sal- mon, besides other fish and flesh, is washed down by 75,600,000 gallons of ale and porter, 3,500,000 gallons of spirits, and 113,750 pipes of wine; 22,799 cows are re- quired to supply the daily consumption of milk. The streets of the metropolis are about 2900 in number, and, if put together, would extend about 4000 miles. They are lighted by 630,000 lamps, consuming every twenty-four hours 22,270,000 cubic feet of gas. Th...

THE SOURCE OF THE WATER SUPPLY, HOBART TOWN. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 26 October 1872

THE SOURCE OF THE WATER SUP- PLY, HOBART TOWN. AMONG the various water supplies of the dif- ferent colonial cities, are to be found some striking examples of engineering construction for the gathering and storage of this indis- pensable liquid. To cities, where the popu- lation is very large, a bountiful supply of pure water is one of the most essential requi- sites for the maintenance of health, and, where Nature has not been lavish in pro- viding streams or reservoirs in proximity to the town, considerable expense and ingenuity is required in bringing it to the homes of the inhabitants. Sydney has been generally blessed with an abundant supply, from the swamps at Randwick and Botany, and, if these sources should prove insufficient, a never-failing supply could be procured from George's River. The people of Victoria have been very energetic in the construction of water-works, by which they ensure all that is required, but perhaps none of the other colonies possess such a simple and...

GEMS AND THEIR ASSOCIATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 26 October 1872

GEMS AND THEIR ASSOCIATIONS. ?OUR forefathers, and, indeed, nearly all our race, have looked with singular affection upon gems, and have seen in them all kinds of symbols and secret virtues. To some .extent the Bible favours this sentiment, by the prominence given to precious stones in .different connections. These were wrought into the official breastplate of the Jewish high priest, and symbolised the twelve tribes of Israel. To the troubled and imperilled ?Church the language of sublime prophecy is, " I will lay thy stones with fair colours, and lay the foundations with sapphires ; and I will make thy windows of agates, and thy gates of carbuncles, and all thy borders of pleasant stones." But their symbolism rises to the highest pitch of dignity in the glorious vision of the New Jerusalem, in the 21st of Revelations. The idea of precious stones ; seems always to have been associated very closely with stars and heaven, and the poets perpetually employ them when touching upon such s...

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

SUBSOIL DRAINING. our lasb issue, we endeavoured to ex- plain the common construction of soil, and the best condition for it to be in, to ensure the most perfect germination of any seed that might be sown in it. We shall now proceed to practical matters as they occur, in the field. When water enters a perfectly dry soil, it of course, in the first instance, (ills the in- terstitial canals, and from these enters the pores of each particle ; and when the supply of water be not too great, the canals speedily become empty, so that the fluid is taken up by the pores. This we have already seen is the healthy condition of soil. If the supply of water, however, is excessive, as from that j draining from higher ground, want of escape for rainfalls, or springs, or a retentive sub- soil, it is clear that the canals must get filled with water as soon as the pores have become saturated. This, then, is the condition of undrained soils. The consequence is that the whole process of germination and ...
