A COLONIAL AND FOREIGN MEAT SUPPLY COMPANY. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 26 October 1872

À COLONIAL AND FOREIGN MEAT SUPPLY COMPANY. WE have been favoured with a prospectus of what is likely to prove a most useful and valuable company, to the middle and work- ing classes of England ; and of great advan- tage to New South Wales, in helping to establish, on a more certain, and firmer basis, the export meat market for her surplus beef and mutton. This company is started on a capital of £250,000, in 50,000 shares of £5 each, with His Grace the Duke of Manchester as president, and a board of directors consist- ing of J. Baxter. Langley, LL.D.; F. F. Akle son, J. Priugle Boyd, Alexander D. Mac- leay, Gordon D. Peters, Abraham Scott, and George Tinline, Esqs.; and Mr. John Hay- ward, pro. tem., secretary. With such a list of officers-many of whom are well-known here-and so good and useful a purpose in view, viz., the affording a cheaper, and more abundant supply of meat to the people of England ; who are now, from its scarcity, and consequent high price, partially, and in many...

EXTRAORDINARY LATE NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 26 October 1872

EXTRAORDINARY LATE NEWS.' WE present our readers with, news received last Wednesday morning, before business I hours, by telegrám from London, dated 1.32 p.m., 22nd October, or one day old. It ap ' pears almost beyond credit, particularly to those who recollect that a reply from home generally took twelve months to obtain, and that four and five months was a rapid passage to make to this country. There is nothing startling beyond the mail news brought by the Baroda. The wool sales in September commenced with a rise of 3d., when a sudden re-action was caused by the introduction of old stock ; but the market recovered towards its close. One half was purchased by continental buyers. Tallow quiet, and stocks large. Mutton, 44s. to 45s. ; beef, 43s. Preserved mutton, 6 lbs. tins, 6d., scarce. Leather 14£d. Salted hides, 7d.

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

©ur ffàvm. WE now increase our draught power, by an additional team of bullocks, and some rlozen strong well-bred 3-year old steers, to break in and help to do the work, and then to fat- ten for meat. By this method, you quiet them, with double profits-you get your heavy work done, while you are rendering them docile and tractable : two main points to rapid fattening. This system can be advan- tageously continued by increased numbers as the farm progresses in cultivation-and artificial food secures a constant supply of stored provender. Bullocks, it must be re- collected, in all calculations of profit and loss, only return work and meat. Therefore the object will be to get the most of these two returns out of them. The most profitable way of obtaining the most work from a beast, is, ever to keep him in a condition above his work ; and the most paying mode to pursue with meat cattle, is never to allow them to be at any time in low condition-but in an equal or an improving state. We f...

OYSTER CULTURE IN TASMANIA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 26 October 1872

OYSTER. CULTURE IN TASMANIA. |. BY J. E. CALDER. [Now that the subject of oyster-farming is I creating a good deal of attention in this colony, we think it well to lay before our readers the substance of an interesting pamphlet, Compiled by Mr. J. E. Calder. This "compilation of facts" relates to oyster-culture in the neighbouring colony of Tasmania, and many of the hints it contains may be useful to our New South' Wales readers.] The frequent failures of the oyster beds of the south and south-east coasts of this colony during the last quarter of a century or morer has caused no little disappointment through- out those quarters of Tasmania where there is any traffic in this shell-fish, and, of course, proportionate disaster has as frequently over- taken those engaged in the trade ; and be- lieving that if these inconvenient, and sometimes prolonged, interruptions of traffic could be checked, this branch of industry might be made a very profitable one, both io home and foreign operat...

Family Medical Guide. LEECHES. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 26 October 1872

jfamílp áMeliftal ©Ufte* LEECHES. COMMON as leeches are now, few persons have any notion of the distance from which they are brought for our vise. Our own country furnishes at present few, if any, medicinal leeches. Formerly they were imported from France, but now, many are brought from Syria, and, as they are very delicate creatures, vast numbers of them are often lost in a rough passage across the sea. Leeches should be kept in a cool place, in a stone or glass jar, filled with river water, aud tied over with coarse muslin to pi'event their escape, though it allows them air. The water should be'-changed only when it begins to get foul, as too frequent I disturbing destroys them. They are also I sometimes found dead after storms. There is often a great deal of trouble in getting leeches to fix. The part on which they are to be applied, should be carefully cleared of perspiration, and wiped with a cool moist cloth, so as to leave it damp. If they do not take readily, the part may be...

Chapters on Common Things No. 9. COFFEE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 26 October 1872

Chapters on Common (E&fns* No. 9. COFFEE. COFFEE is the next subject for remark. The lover of the grateful, refreshing beverage prepared from the berry of the coffee, can form but a very indistinct idea, if he forms any at all, of the labour, anxieties, and atten- tion incident upon the production of that seed. He may perchance dream of sun-burnt, lordly planters ; Nabobs- of fello tvs in straw hats and silk jackets ; he may picture gorgeous scenery dotted with palaces and tigers, and see dimly in the distance carriages-and-four, and heaps of glittering gold. Having imagined I all this, and inspected a few samples of the I raw berry exposed to public gaze in small round bowls in a grocer's shop-window, he Í fancies that he understands the whole matter. ¡ The object of the following sketch is to fill in from nature these fancy portraits, which bear no nearer likeness to the original, than does the well-known mixture called ' Chicoree1 resemble what it is intended to sup- plan...

LANE COVE RIVER, PORT JACKSON. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 26 October 1872

SYDNEY WATERWORKS, BOTANY. LANE COVE RIVER, PORT JACKSON. There are few among the many pleasant nooks of Sydney Harbor which can compete with Lane Cove River for beauty, and it is scarcely to be wondered at that so many holi- day folks make their way to it by boat and steamer on dayB devoted to pleasure. Al- though it flows into the Parramatta River it . can hardly be described as a branch of that stream, for it is in itself scarcely inferior in length, and possesses some remarkably fine reaches. Starting from the Lime-street wharf, it is not long before the narrow passage between Balmain and Goat Island is reached, the former studded with pleasant cottage residences, even to the water's edge, the latter uBed as a dépôt for the storage of merchants' gunpowder. Then we pass oon« secutively Waterview Bay, at the head of which are Mort; and Co's, dry dook and engineering works, then Ballast Point, and immediately opposite, on the north shore, Ball's Head. At this point-a remarkably bol...

ECONOMIC USES OF SHELLS, AND THEIR INHABITANTS. (Continued.) [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 26 October 1872

ECONOMIC USES OF SHELLS, AND I THEIR INHABITANTS. BY HEÎÎKY WOODWARD, F.G.S*., F.Z.S. ( Continued.) Mollusca applied in Commerce, Arts, and Manufactures.-AU the cvtttlo-fishes possess au ink-bag, from which at pleasure they can emit a fluid which darkens the water, and favours their escape from their enemies. The prepared rub of the cuttle-fish is capable of being made into a pigment. This is the " sepia" of commerce. The ink of the Sepia was formerly trsed for writing with (Cicero), and even after being entombed for centuries, it preserves its powers. Dr. Buckland supplied some of this' ink from a fossil Belemnoteuthis to an eminent painter, who, after using it, inquired from what colourman such excelleut sepia might be procured. But "sepia" is not the only colouring matter which the mollusca furnish for the use of man. The dye used in the manufacture of the celebrated " Tyrian purple" of the ancients was obtained from' certain species of Murex. The small shells were bruised in mor...

Australian Natural Distory. SERRATED SAW FISH (Pristis Cirralis). [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 26 October 1872

australian' Raturai ¥K£tonn SERRATED SAW FISH (Prisfis Oirral*l THE saw-fish is an inhabitant of our Aus- tralian seas, and sometimes captured in our harbours. Two very fine specimens of the above genus were taken in Port Jackson some years ago, one of which was presented to the Australian Museum by a Mr. Wilson, through whose liberality and kindness the Institution is much indebted, not only for this single fish, but for many others, some of which are new and undescribed. The saw fish is said to be one of the most formidable enemies the whale has to contend with. Although small, it attacks, and even overcomes, the largest of the whale tribe. They are clearly allied to the sharks. Their upper jaw is prolonged into a projecting flattened snout, and set horizontally with numerous sharp-pointed teeth. On each side of the snout are two long cirri, which dis- tinguish our saw-fish from all others. A very interesting account is given in ' ' Charles- worth*« Magaàue of Natural History," re...

HAGGIS IN A PUDDING DISH.-The follow- ing palatable mode of using the remains of roasted or boiled meat, after it has-appeared upon the table first iu a hot and then in a cold state, will be found economical and at the same, time to afford an agreeable variety. Let the meat be minced. Either beef or or mutton may be used ; but care must be taken that there is a sufficient quantity of fat, and any deficiency in this respect must be made up by suet. The minced meat is to be mixed with coarse oatmeal, previously well browned before a «lear fire, and with some chopped onions, salt and pepper ; and the whole, being put into a pudding-dish, is to be thoroughly heated in an oven, remaining there fully half-an-hour. The dish bears a considerable resemblance to Scotch haggis. Food Journal.

Scientific [?]ottings. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 23 November 1872

Mentíffr 3ottíng& CHINESE TELEGRAMS.-The managers of a telegraph company in China have recently solved the problem of how to transmit tele- graphic messages in Chinese. At first sight the difficulties of an alphabet which is made up of about fifty thousand distinct charac- ters, appear insurmountable, but the ob- stacles have been overcome, and A-Fat at Hongkong encounters no more difficulty in ! communicating with A-Chum at Shanghai I than do Brown and Jones under similar cir- cumstances. The plan adopted is this : Some I few thousands of the more common Chinese [ charactérs are cut on wooden blocks, after ; the manner of type, and on the reverse end of each is a number cut in the same way. j Now, A-Fat having handed in his message ¡ written in Chinese, the native clerk selec<s j in order the corresponding blocks from the I case, and prints off the numbers on their reverse. This he hands to his English col- league, who telegraphs the numbers to the I destination ...
