THE LARGEST FARM IN THE WORLD. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 20 October 1866

THE LARGEST FARM IN THE WORLD; A correspondent of an American paper states that the largest cultivated farm in the world, is owned and oultivated by Mr, M. L. Sulievant, in Champaign oiinty, 1llinois:- He owns and presides over 70,000 acres of the best land on this hemisphere, 23,000 acres of which are under fence, and in actual im provement and cultivation ; the balance is used for herding, I will venture the opinion that there cannot be found five acres of unservice able land on Mr. S.'s entire 70,000 acres. Their productiveness is unsurpassed, Almost all of Mr. S.'s farming is conducted by labour saving machinery, so that it is estimated that, throughout, one man will perform the average labour of four or five, as conducted on small farms. He drives' his posts by horse-power, breaks his ground by Comstock's "spaders," mows, rakes, loads, unloads, and stacks his hay by horse power; cultivates his corn by improved machinery, ditches any low gI'ound by machinery, sows and plants by ...

BLACKWOOD. 18th October, 1866. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 20 October 1866

BLACKWOOD. (FROM A CORREPONDENT.)   18th October, 1866. THE end of poetry is to please. So said the prince of critics, Lord Jeffrey. In itself it exercises a humanizing influence. It warms our affections, animates our sympathies, and elevates our thoughts. Nor are its effects evanescent. It irradiates the portals of our existence, adds lustre to its meridian, and softens the glow of its twilight. Aesthetically speaking, the foreground of society is beginning to show itself, regardless of perspec- tive, or, if there is any perspective at all, the linear and not the aerial predominates. The age is essentially practical and utilitarian. Facts and figures are in the ascendant, and the time appears to be coming when the affairs of life will be con- ducted upon principles of such mathematical ex- actness as altogether to preclude the speculative and imaginative. That such an era in our history may never arrive, I for one most heartily pray; nor am I alone in this respect. The...

SELECTED POETRY. THE EMIGRANT. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 20 October 1866

SELECTED POETRY. THE EMIGRANT. I am far away from the sea-girt isle I left with a joyous heart, When the beaming eye and the heartless smile Saw the emigrant depart. I did not sigh as the ocean's foam Bore me swiftly away from that happy home, I did not sigh, though I left behind A peaceful and a tranquil spot, Where ivy and woodbine boughs entwined Their shades o'er my greenwood cot. They told me that I was sore oppress'd; I sought in a foreign clime for rest. I sought for a home beyond the wave ! I sought an asylum here; What shall I find but a foreign grave, Unwept by friendship's tear ? And now I sigh for the quiet spot, And think of the lowly woodbine cot. I think of my own old home with tears, Each valley, each fertile hill; I see them in dreams of my boyhood's years, In thought they're with me still. A wandering outcast now I roam, Exiled from England—my native home.

THE FORTY-SECOND CLAUSE. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 27 October 1866

THE FORTY-SECOND CLAUSE.-A new feature in connection with the celebrated 42nd clause is just coming to light. It seems a great number of pelt sons are devoting a little spare money and time to the culture of novel industries. Some are trying to cultivato a patch of chicory, arrowroot. or beet root, some sorghtim, mulberry, olives, and others, black currants, figs, and fruits of commerce; while a more practical class of selectors are trying flax, hemp, and other fibrous plants; so that, without assistance from Government, these numerous ex periments, made at a small cost, will prove what can be raised to advantage, as well as the best localities for the different products. In several places new esculents, such as the yam, sweet pota. toe, and taro, are being cultivated, and if success attends the efforts of the cultivators, it will be a public blessing, as all three are most nutritious, and suitable to our semi-tropical climate. . The different nationalities taking up areas show a pr...

FARM MISCELLANY. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 27 October 1866

FARM MISCELLANY. HORSE HOEI-o.-Mr. Mechi lays do' this axiom: " Never employ a man where you can use a horse, and never a horse where you can work a steam-engine" The reasons are obvious : a man costs as much daily as a horse, while the latter has six times the power; a steam-engine beats the horse in like proportion; therefore, with Gare tt' horse-hoe, which takes a width of seven to eight feet, a pair of horses and one muan will clean and cultivate from eight to twelve nar .. a day. With two pairs of horses my ma n % has occasionally clean horse-hoed from twenty to twenty-two acres of wheat or beans in a long day. Our beans are harrowed Well with iron b?rrows, when they are one inch out of the ground, and receive, in addition, two r three horse-hoeings and two haud-hociang Our tares are sometimes horse-hoed, and our clovers are invariably hoed in the sprin.o, is': +: there are any weeds to remove.
