IRISH AGRICULTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 25 June 1869

IRISH AGRICULTURE. At a recent Agricultural Society's annual meeting', Mr. C. Buxton, M. iP., gave theliistory of a.little agricultural : experiment he had made in the extreme west of Ireland. He was travelling in Ireland a year after the famine, and: he bought a small estate near Dihgle, under . the Encumbered Estates Court lit might make the mouths of some gentlemen water when he mentioned that, although much of the land was ! very rich and altrough the. estate was only two miles from a good seaport, it was knocked down to him :for £3 an. acre ; but he was not surprised at the cheapness of the^ land when he found how villainously it had been treaded. Anything more absurd and ruinous than the whole system which prevailed could not be imagined.Por instance the property was divided into tiny portions separared by huge banks, so that fully one-sixth of the arable land inust have been taken up by them; and instead of. each tenant having his land in one plot, it seemed as if the fields ...

G.Williams, of Auburn, in the chair. Mr. A. King, the hon. sec., said that Mr. Bright had told him that he thought the Port Wake' field Tramway would be finished early in October, if not in September, and he (Mr. King) suggested that the annual exhibition of stock at Auburn should take place then, when very likely his Excellency the Governor might be Induced to attend, and he further stated that the Society would ask Sir James to become Satroo. Mr. Treloar proposed "That the Show be pat off till that time," which proposi tion was carried. Mr. Wiles, of Auburn, urged the necessity of co-operation in the matter, and trusted the North would not give a less brilliant reception to his Excellency than other districts had lately done.

KOORINGA. (fboic OUR owk coebespokdekt.) June 22,1869. Last week Mr. Chas. Lascellee, accompanied I by Mr. A. Wilkie, paid this township i visit, and charmed a very fair audience, considering the fames, on two evenings. On Wednesday, the 16th inst, a man was sentenced by the full Court to a week's impri sonment with hard labor, for stealing three sticks, the property of the South Australian Mining Association. Monday was observed as a public holiday fa ere, but nothing in the way of entertainment took place. There was a tea meeting at the Black Springs in connection with the Wesleyan Circuit, and a few friends from this pait managed to attend. I understand it was quite a success in every way. Last evening there was a musical and recita tive entertainment given in the Bedriith Court-house, by lady and gentlemen amateurs, in aid of the trust fund of the Wesleyan Church in that place. The room was crowded, some persons having to go away in consequence. About £6 was the resultof the col...

CAPITAL PUNISHMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 2 July 1869

CAPITAL PUNISHMENT. Capital punishment is such a re morseless exercise of the powers of the law that it is not surprising that in all parts of the world there have been found persons to contend that it ought to be relinquished. Here, as elsewhere, short-sighted philanthropists occa sionally come prominently before the public, and demand that the punish ment of death shall never be had re course to. The only reasonable method of treating* this important subject is, viewing it in relation to its general effect on the criminal classes in se curing the safety of Society at large. If innocent men are able to sleep in greater security because of the hang man's disagreeable offices, it would be folly to abolish han«ino\ Ft becomes, ./ <3 n / therefore, an interesting question to determine whether or not this last penalty of the law exercises a more deterring influence on the wickedly disposed than any other form of ex piation of offence. On this head we find some valuable inform...

NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 2 July 1869

NEW ZEALAND. The full lowing1 is a condensed account of the great fire that occurred in Greymouth a few weeks ago. The houses of the town are built on piles and are composed of wood with calico and scrim partitions which render them very liable to ignition. The Grey River Argus says:-u The greatest calamity which has yet be fallen Greymouth occurred yesterday morning' (June 11), when one of the best blocks of business premises in town was completely destroyed by fire. About 3 o'clock fire was observed issuing from the back premises of the Melbourne Hotel, a large two-storey building at the corner of Werita street and Mawhera Quay. A stiff gorge wind was blowing at the time, and fanned the flame into an immense blaze, which very speedily leaped over Werita street, and seized hold of the new building of the Bank of Australasia. The engine was run on to the landing stage in the vicinity, the hose attached, and work commenced; but imme diately it was found that the suction-hose -had sli...

FENCING. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 2 July 1869

FENCING. Many inquiries are now being- made as to which plant is best adapted for a hedge, as well as an efficient fence. In the warmer and dry districts the cactus tribe is frequently made use of, but there are strong- objections against them, the principal being that of monopolising so much space, and being so difficult to keep in subjection. Per haps the best plant of all for the purpose is the white-thorn, and the plants of this, although not raised in the colony generally, are obtainable at a reasonable rate from the growers in Tasmania, who forward them to the Melbourne agents by the million. To prepare for a good hedge the ground ought to he trenched fully eighteen inches, or even two feet; a subsoil plough will go deep enough in many soils. A strip three feet wide may be thus treated, and if the ground be of a poor nature, a liberal coat of manure well rotted will amply repay its worth. The "quicks" ought to be assorted before planting, say into three sizes, and plant each s...

The Northern Argus. FRIDAY, JULY 2, 1869. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 2 July 1869

\\t §trp.i FRIDAY, JULY 2,1869. THREE years ago the farmers in many parts of tills province were very much troubled with numbers of these little creatures which go under the appela tion of grubs, and whose destructive propensities the agriculturists are per fectly aware of from past experience. In "the year 1866 these voracious insects-which are about an inch in length and of a greenish color-at tacked the wheat plant in its tender state with great vigor, completely destroying all that came in contact with its rapacious jaws by cutting the stalk a little above the roots, and, as a matter of course, it never revived. They appear to have commenced their ravages again this year, both in the northern and southern districts, to the great consteration of the farmers, who are as yet scarcely aware of the extent to which they have progressed, and are not prepared to give them battle. These insects congregate in large numbers and extend rapidly over the field they attack, destaging* all befo...

ADELAIDE. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) June 29. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 2 July 1869

ADELAIDE. (fbom otib om cobbespokdent.) J une 29. Any stranger seeing our streets during the last week or two must have thought that Ade laide has been denied the advantages of a Cor poration, fcr the thoroughfares until the last few days have been in a most disgraceful state and almost impassable. The late rains have reduced them to a perfect bog, and in the absence of gas pedes trianum after dark is a most disagreeable task, and a return to the custom prevalent in the olden days of employ ing link-boys would not at all be amiss under present circumstances. The feeble light which kerosene lamps afford would be hailed by many of the citizens ag a positive blessing; but the majority of the ratepayer* having decided not to have either gas or kerosene, we must erduie the. consequences of their cleciBion and keep in doors after sundown, except on moonlight nights; and in the meantime Adelaide on the dark winter evenings remains in a state which, in cities of the same size in the adjoini...
