Deer-Shooting in Tasmania. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 22 January 1870

Deer-Shooting in Tasmania. \ BY A SYDNEYTTE. | TASMANIA has much to render it a happy land, in a | sportsman's eyes, as far as my experience goes at least. -v "When I left New South "Wales, I was possessed with t the idea that New South Welshmen were especially .[? favoured-our inland abounding with feathered game . {> of all description, or nearly so. We have kangaroo in | great numbers, aud finer sport than hunting the jumpers over our open forest land no one could wish ]; for. But we have no deer. I have hunted and shot J our largest game -with great delight, and when, shortly K after my arrival in Tasmania, I heard that on certain -| parts of the Island deer. abounded, you ma}- imagine | my delight and the intense desire I felt to get a shot, if | only one, at these beautiful, shy creatures.

Jupiter, Help Us! [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 22 January 1870

Jupiter, Help Us ! npHB fable of J ove and the indolent wag -?- goner has rarely been more practically il lustrated than in the case of the poor "distressed fruit-growers of Pennant Hills," a deputation from whom waited upon the Colonial Secretary last Monday, praying for relief from the con sequences of a recent hailstorm. Now, if it were competent for the Legislature to pass an Act of Parliament for the entire abolition of \ hailstorms, we should be disposed to think that a good case was made out for the intro duction of a bill with that object; but the curious part of the recommendations j made by this deputation was that the Government should authorise the construction of a road to the Field of Mars Common. At first sight it may somewhat puzzle tho reader to understand how the making of a road about two miles long could repair the damage done to fruit and fruit trees by a hailstorm ; but ¡ thc philosophers of-Pennant Hills made it out j clearly enough, at least to their own sati...

LADIES' COLUMN. Ladies in the Hunting Field. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 22 January 1870

LADIES' COLUMN. _j Ladies in the Hunting Fiolci. \ " THE LADEES ! God bless 'om ! " as we once heard tho toast given by a bachelor, on whom it devolved to pro pose their health. Tho orator was as ardent an admirer of the sex as he was of the virtue of brevity, and thjo eloquence compressed into that ono sentence was a worthier tribute to their charms than the most flowery peroration he could have uttered. ? But we aro far from being bold enough to attempt to discuss angelio femininity generally-to analyse the wayward variety of temperament that has puzzlod philosophers for ages, to give laws, or account for, c¡r to dwell in rapture on their virtues, and point sorrow fully to their amiable little weaknesses. with ladies in the hunting field alone have we to do, and if perchance in the course of our remarks we are forced to give truth precedence to gallantry, they must pity, not condemn us. : First, there is tho lady who takes an aotive part in the fray, and entors into the rough-and-...

Improvements in Sugar-making Apparatus. ON Monday last wo woro invited to noticotlie work ings of tho now apparatus invented by Mr. Escudior for tho manuafcturo of sugar. AVo could not do othcrwiso than congratulate tho inventor on this noAv method of kettles, the mannor in which they are adjusted is far superior to any which have appeared up thc present time. By this now process of manufac turing, tho work is .simplified in a surprising mannor, as a singlo person can easily atttend to all tho kettles at tho same time. By means of faucets or stoppers, tho cane juice and syrups pass from onokottlo to tho other without hoing obliged to uso buckots, as is tho caso with tho old, which necessitates a loss of time, and which is moro difficult, in transporting tho syrups from ono kottlo to tho other. By moans of pipes which oncircle tho kettles, the slamming is performed of itsolf, and at the moment of ebullition the skum falls into a bucket designed for tho purposo and is immediately plac...

Advice Por Hot Weather. CABBACE-TUEE HATS as usually made, aro unsuited for1 hot weather, as they come too close to the toi) °^ the head. Use a wide-rimmed, light straw hat, with rather a high crown, not closely fitting to the top of the head ; have the rim turned down all around, put your hand kerchief in the crown, and if very warm pluck some fresh grass and put between the handkerchief and the: crown, which will most effectually keep the rays of the sun from the brain. Whon thc pores are well open and' one perspires freely, thero ia not so much danger from the effects of tho sun, as the dry burning sensation sometimes experienced. Labour early and late, but rest at noon, and if possible allow yourself forty winks in the hottest portion of tho day. If your work is near tho house, so that it will bo practicable, have an early tea, say at 5 o'clock, with 15 minutes rest, and then continue your work (if so inclined) to a late hour of the evening.

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

Wool and Silk. THE wool show of last week, though not nearly so extensive as it might have been if the flockowners were more alive to their own interest, was in some respects satisfactory. The judges, in their report say :-" In expressing the opinion that the present exhibi tion of washed fleece wools is the finest, both in quality and condition, that has ever been seen in Australia, we feel confident that we are only stating a simple fact." The number of competitors was very few, only twenty-one, and tho exhibits were but thirty three in number. In one of . the ten classes, " for the best washed bale, not less than two hundr-d lbs. of wool washed on the sheep's back," although there were five exhibits from five several exhibitors, " there was not," according to the judges, " a decently washed bale among them." Those who had failed to produce a well washed bale were recommended to study other exhibits in the show, with a view to correct their notions of what washing ought to be. If ...

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

Exploration and Discovery. A MONG-ST the very latest of our nows from Europe we have a published letter from the Kev. A1r. Kirk, dated fr m Zanzibar, in September last, and addressed to Sir R. Mureil ison, with tho latest intelligence of the proceedings of Dr. Livingstone, in his explo rations of the Upper Nile. The subject derives peculiar interest at the present time from the fact of the opening of tho Suez Canal, and the general attention thus drawn to African exploration and discovery. There arc some who may be disposed to feel rather weary of the matter. Dr. Livingstone has been so often killed iu the newspapers, and restored to life by the same authorities, that it is not impossible that some people may have grave doubts whether there is any such person in existence-whether the sup position traveller may not be a sort of geographical Mrs Harris. At the same time the sources of the Nile have been so often pro fosse I ly discovered that even tolerably well informed persons maybe...

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

The Weather. npHE intense and overpowering heat of the weather last week was something almost unprecedented, and we learn from Melbourne and Adelaide-the latter place particularly that the weather had there been almost unendurable. At Adelaide, on "Wednesday, the thermometer stood at 164 in the sun and 112 in the shade, but there were signs of a change. At Melbourne on Thursday the huming heat was agreeably diversified by occassfonal showers, and we were similarly favoured in Sydney the following day. Whether owing to tho beat operating upon a rank soil, or other causes, we learn by telegram that a case of Asiatic cholera has occurred in South Australia. In fact it is no exaggeration to say that such weather as we had last week is exceedingly dangerous. Nausea, vertigo, and throbbing head-ache have been com plained of on all hands. Our neigh bours in New Calodonia have adapted their habits to the climate iu this respect, and, we understand, suspend all business operations during the...

Royalty in Exile. A LADY'S INTERVIEW WITH QUEEN ISABELLA AND THE QUEEN MOTHER. The Home Journal publishes an interesting letter from a New York lady, describing a recent interview with Royalty in Exile-Queen Isabella, at Trouville, and the Queen Mother, at Chateau Mon Desir. We make tho following extracts : On a shrubby knoll, whose broad gravelled walks extend to the water's edge, and commanding a fine view of the bay, is situated, at St. Adresse (a suburb ef Havre), Men Desir, the chateau of Queen Christine of Spain. It is a large square building, with a chapel attached, and hemmed in on the city side by a wall of about ten feet high.

A Strange Story. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 22 January 1870

A Strange Story. Tho possible existence of another survivor of the Oawnpore massacre should be a matter of far more in terest to us, and though there may bo some difficulties in the way, we think the Government of India owes something to the memory of ono of its old officers, and something to Iris representatives, if any of them exist. And that one does exist is affirmed in manner that at least leaves a probability of the truth of the statement. We apprehend that the facts must bo known to the Government, and it would be satisfactory to learn that somothing has been attempted, even if nothing has been done. The story has boen detailed to us very circumstantially, with too much detail to leave it open to tho supposition that it is all imagination. Tho story is in substance as follows: " Brigadier Sir Hugh Wheeler, who was in command at Oawnpore at the time of the mutiny, had two grown up daughters. These were both with him when he was besieged with tho gai-rison at Oawnpore. On the a...
