Reminisences of Early Colonial Life. [Newspaper Article] — Burra Record — 12 July 1878

Reminiscences of Early Colonial life. Possibly many of your readers may assume that they know quite enough about "colonial   life" past and present, and others that they   know all that is knowable on the subject. But life in these colonies during the last 30 years has borne such a resemblance to the kaleido- scope, with its changing hues and varying forms, that few — even of the observant class — can have done more than mark the march and rapidity of the changes, without having time to determine all the producing causes, or to analyse all the effects. Those (and there are not a few — some of them natives of the soil — ) whose knowledge of Australian scenery and die expedients of colonial life is bounded by the breezy summits of the Burra hills, varied by experiences of Moonta sandhills, and a trip to Adelaide, can have but a bald conception of the varied and startling pa- norama of our inaugural history. A rev, gentlemen, who spent two whole years on Yorke...

When more than a hundred yards away I could distinctly hear singing, swearing, and aoands that reminded me of quarrelling. Next day I asked two persons who lived at a short distance from the hotel if they bad heard the disturbance: the first had beeo-aronsed from aleep repeatedly ; the Second living, at a gupatnr distance from the Commercial than the Fobs* Station, was unable to sleep stall najfl. half-past two, when the noise subsided or sleep intervened. When I patted} the disturbance wm inside as well as outside the door«nd, and if my mformante are correct, this disturbance contained within the jurisdiction ol the' land lord.

The Week's Parliament. On Tuesday the Gorernment measure for the reform of the TJfijiet Hoase wbb debated and adjourned ; bui little interest being mani fested in it. Mr. £risht*s Land Bill was rcai the third time, and has been psseed. In the Assembly the Estimated of expenditure (u usual chewing increased in -the wont places}, were received faun the Governor. Tnen came the Education debate, and Mr. Sees succeeded in carrying his motion to do sway with the Education Council ; a decision that we believe is welcomed by -toe whole colony. We hope the Government will see fit to accept the amendment, and go on with the Bill. The Babbit .Bill passed, and was sent on to the Upper Soase. The Magpie Creek Bailway Bill passed through Committee, and the Hallett to Yarcowie Bill got as far as that stage. On Wednesday the Council again shewed their teeth aver theParliament Souses Question, Mr. Fisher leading the Opposition. It is a S'ty some persons have so much 'dignity.' M matter was adjourned...

Glass Printing Type. [Newspaper Article] — Burra Record — 19 July 1878

Glass Printing Type. Some time since we called attention to the fact, that it was proposed to employ glass in place of the heavy and dirty metal type now m use by printers. We pointed out the advantages of die new material asregards lightness, cleanliness, and freedom from wear and tear. We are glad therefore to hear, that some experiments have been inade with toughened glass which bid fair to render ^his desirable improvement a;n accomplished fact. The ordinary metal type although bright enough when it first conies from the founders, soon assumes a more dingy appear ance, and degenerates into a squalid form, dirty in their bodies and battered in their faces. The idea now is to dis card these long proved but un attractiveservants, and fill their places with glittering types of glass. The toughened glass is naturally much harder than the old metal and can hardly be crushed out of shape, defaced, or scratched, It is also capable of being cast into more' delicate shapes so that the dif...

Planti the surface of a plate of glass or crystal having been covered with a concentrated solution of nitrate of potash, and a horizontal platinum wire, connected with one of the poles of an electric battery, being placed in the liquid along the edges of the glass, any design may be easily drawn on the glass b$ touching it with the poiut at the other end ©f the platinum wire. The wire form ing the 'pencil' is insulated, the tip alone remaining un covered, .and fey sraaply using the wire as an ordinary pencil and tracing imaginary lines on the surface of the glass, the design, is permanently repro duced and distinctly mgravea thereon.

The Johnston Harvester. Tke Johnston Harvester Company, -©f Brockport, New York, this year exhibited two maenmesat the bmitnneld (Jinb Show, viz. «, mroHght fron Harvester, and a single Mower, In both these machines the use of wrought iron has been em ployed to a very great extent, rendering them unequalled for lightness, strength and dur ability. The gearing is the simplest possible. The speed of the knife can be reduced simply by -reversing the level wheel. The ropes are driven by a flat belt chain and run very steady, they are under fall control of the driver to deliver the gavel at any time. The Johnston Mower ;is a very simple machine, .having no bolts or pieces in excess of what is necessary to perform the work required. The main frame is made of wrought iron, xhe finger bar is of cold rolled iron, and the bearings are solid boxes, the same as in the Harvester. The simple construction, the high wheels, the fine malleable castings and wrought iron parts, make these machines loo...
