THE CANTERBURY VOLUNTEER CHAMPION CUP. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 13 April 1872

THE CANTERBURY VOLUNTEER CHAMPION CUP. In these days of complaints against the general public that they do little or nothing o foster volunteering by offering prizes, &c, tor competition, it is very pleasing to have to record at least one exception. Mr. Blake, of the A 1 Hotel, Canterbury, New Zealand, has. with a liberality and public spiritedness which deserves the warmest commendation, offered a prize cup of the value of £50, to be shot for by the volunteers of Canterbury. The cup "'as manufactured at the establish- ment of MessrB. Petersen and Co., Christ- church, and isa splendid specimen of silver- smith's work. It Btands 20 in. high from th« bane to cover, springing from an orna- mental stem, and is of tankard shape, having two handles. On one side is a spirited representation, in frosted silver em- bossed, of the advance of a body of light troops, the main body being covered by a cloud of skirmishers, who are shown in the varions attitudes of firing, re-loadine, &...

Household Hints. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 11 May 1872

Household Hintss. DAMP WALLS.-" Three-quarters of a pound of mottled soap to one gallon of water. This composition to be laid over the brick- work steadily and carefully with a large flat brush, so as not to form a froth or lather ou the surface. The wash to remain twenty- four hours to become dry. Mix half a pound of alum with four gallons of water, leave it to stand for twenty-four hours, and then apply it in the same manner over the soap. Let this be done in dry weather." Another plan is given, namely:-"To half a bushel of newly slaked stone lime put one gallon of raw linseed oil, the lime to be first wetted with sufficient hot water to cover it com- pletely over, and the oil to be added in a boiling state. The wash may be tinted with yellow ochre, umber, or Venetian red. Two coats add much to its durability. The above ingredients will colour 500 yards." A third remedy is said to prove efficacious, which is thus described:-"Give brick, stone, or cemented wall one good coat of hot...

Scientific Jottings. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 11 May 1872

Ärimtiffc Sotting^ An English chemist has been experimenting for the purpose of ascertaining how much of various kinds of food must be eaten in order to make one pound of flesh. He comes to the conclusion that it requires twenty-five pounds of milk, one hundred of turnips, fifty of potatoes, fifty of carrots, nine of oatmeal, seven and a half of barley meal aud three and a half of peas or beans. Highly-interesting accounts have been re- ceived of the late solar eclipse from Mr. Nor- man Lockyer and captain Maclear. The latter writes :-" The rumours that our presence gave rise to among the natives were very amusing. First we heard that part of the sun was about to fall, and the wise men had comejtofthe East to prevent it. Then when the formidable-looking instruments were seen mounted on the fort, they thought there was a war, and we were ingineers going to put the fort in order to prevent a landing. This was strengthened by the factthatthe G'lasgoto prac- tised at a target before ret...

AN HOUR OF AGONY. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 11 May 1872

AN HOUR OF AGONY. HAS the reader ever had a tussel with a Bengal tiger in full vigour and appetite ? Has it chanced him to be in a balloon when " perforated by Prussian bullets ? Has it oc- curred to him to have been indulging a com- mendable curiosity in the remoter recesses of a coal-mine, when an explosion suddenly severed the connection between himself and the world without ? These are forms of un- easiness not to be lightly treated of. They shrink into nothing beside that supreme commingling of grief, astonishment, and horror it was my lot to experience on a cer- tain never-to-be-forgotten evening of Janu- ary, 'forty-nine. Time's soothing influence has wrought its . accustomed effect. All bitterness, all self-, reproach have died gradually away. In place of that mental tumult which, for a long period, attended the remembrance of the incident in question, I now find myself able to narrate with indifference, nay, even, with a smile, the circumstance to which, but recently, my mo...

Literature. PURGED IN THE FIRE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 11 May 1872

literature* PURGED IN THE FIRE. " Uncle Herbert, will you tell us a Christ- mas story ? Please do ! The speaker was only a little maid of six years old, but a dozen voices echoed the request. It was Christmas, and we were gathered, according to time honoured custom, round a blaizng fire under my grand-father's roof. We Avère a merry party, comprising some fifteen cousins of all ages, with their respective parents, and a few married and un-married uncles and aunts. Uncle Herbert, otherwise Mr. Herbert Mil ward, was our uncle by marriage only, as the husband of our aunt Alice ; but though thus only indirectly related to us, I think he was, with the younger ones at any rate, the best beloved of all. Peihaps because he had no children of his own, he was always specially sympathetic in youthful troubles, and spe- cially lenient to youthful misdoings. How- ever grave the offence, we were always iure of uncle Herbert's intercession ; though he never failed privately to admonish the offende...

Selected Poetry. THE ENGAGED RING. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 11 May 1872

THE ENGAGED RING. SHE has come from the brilliant ball, and now, Alone in her chamber sits, Ay, mark how o'er her smooth white brow A sorrowful shadow flits. The ring she draws from her finger fair . Has rendered the bright eye dim 'Mid the mirth of the giddy revel there, Has she been all true to him ? When he went away to a foreign land, To toil for her sake alone, He placed that ring on her trembling hand, And murmured-" Mine- mine own !" To night they have pressed that hand in the dance, And her eyes begin to swim, And she reckons up whisper, and smile, and glance Has she been all true to him ? Was the smile no warmer than sun on'snow ? Was the glance than ice more chill ? Was the clasp no closer than friends bestow? Was the whisper friendship's still ? She questions her heart in the silent night As her thoughts o'er the ocean skim, Like summer birds to her love in flight Has she been all true to him ? Oh, pitiless, mocking, hollow world, What else could the poor child do ? ' She...

AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY OF NEW SOUTH WALES—ANNUAL SHOW OF 1872. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 11 May 1872

AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY OF NEW SOUTH WALESA-ANNUAL SHOW OF 1S72. ON Tuesday, the 30th ult., the Agricultural Society's Exhibition was opened by his Ex- cellency, Sir Alfred Stephen, the Adminis- trator of the Government, in the presence of a large concourse of visitors. Although the day promised at early morn to be anything but fine, the ladies in gay and fashionable attire, far outnumbered the male throng. The Naval, Military, and Volunteer officers, who appeared, as requested, in uniform, added to the general effect of the scene. At one o'clock, the band attached to the Permanent Force announced the arrival of his Excellency, who passed through the ! building from the southern entrance, accom- panied by the Hon. E. Deas Thomson, C.B., Mr. J. Joubert (Secretary to the Society), and other officials. A platform had been erected at the northern extremity of the building, and having ascended this, together with the members of the reception commit- tee, several ladies, and the officials by...

VICTORIAN EASTER REVIEW. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 11 May 1872

VICTORIAN EASTER REVIEW. WE give au illustratiou of this eveut which created a deal oi excitement amongst our Victorian neighbours. The following de- scribes the action of the monitor Cerberus in her attack on the Nelson and the batteries in Hobson's Bay. ' A few minutes before three o'clock, the Cerberus having gone as close in shore as she could with safety, two men being kept all the time in the chains heaving the lead, she steamed from the mouth of the Kororoit Creek towards Williamstown. At 3 p.m., a shot was fired from one of the Williamstown Batteries, . and immediately afterwards the Cerberus commeuced to take the right, centre, and lighthouse fortifications in flank. The enormous weight of her metal, her guns carrying 4 cwt. shell, and requiring 30 lb. of powder, enabled her to shell the shore de- fences with little or no risk to herself, since none of them could do execution at more than 2000 yards, while the guus of the Cerberus could carry double that distance : besides ...

TREAT TO THE BOYS BELONGING TO H. HS. NE L S O N. THE NELSON BOYS RETURNING I FROM THE PICNIC. It has been customary for some years for ] certain liberal-minded citizens of Melbourne I to give [an annual treat in the shape of a | picnic to the lads onboard H. M. S. Nelson. This year it was cot up by Mr. Beauchamp and other gentlemen interested in their behalf, and took place on the 13th ultimo. The boys, numbering 350, arrived from Williamstown at Spencer-street at 9.30, and after forming in fours, marched, headed by their excellent band, up Collins-street to the Treasury, where they found ten lorries, each drawn by three fine horses, and which were most generously provided by Mr. Morley, awaiting them. After deploying in columns of fifty they mounted their com- modious vehicles, and were joined by the Young Traders' school to the number of OVERLANDERS ROUNDING- UP A STRAGGLER. ninety, drawn in lorries kindly supplied by Messrs.

BALCLUTHA BRIDGE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 11 May 1872

BALCLUTHA BRIDGE. THIS month we present our readers with a view of Balclutha, one of the many very pro- mising townships of our young sister colony, situated within a horse-shoe bend of the Molyneux. She presents, from the point cho- sen hy the artist, an object of no small interest, and, even at this early stage, of considerable attraction. At about a mile beyond the townships the country becomes ridgy, and rises into gentle eminences, which are backed by the Warepa Hills, overtopping the landscape from the south, whilst, about half a mile below the bridge, the most pro- minent object iu our view, the river, branches off into the two channels of the Matau and Koau, enclosing within their ciríle the large, I picturesque, and fertile island of Inch-Ciu I tha, a small corner of which is seen near to the left of our engraving. The river is of great depth, affording the settlers from a dis- tance of eight or ten miles above the bridge cheap and easy water communication with the steam pa...

THE NEW GOODS SHED, VICTORIAN RAILWAYS, MELBOURNE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 11 May 1872

THE NEW GOODS SHED, VICTORIAN RAILWAYS, MELBOURNE. FOR some time past it has been found that the accommodation for the goods traffic at the Spencer-street Station of the Victorian Railways has been exceedingly déficient, and when the contract for the new shed was let, about eighteen months ago, for £46,000, en- larged accommodation had become a press- ing necessity. In this number we give a view of the interior of the new building, the length of which is 875 feet. The breadth is 117 feet. Rails for two sets of trains run down the middle from end to end. For one half the distance there are three double lines. A platform, varying from 35 feet to 42 feet, stands upon each side of the space occupied by the rails. It is narrowest where the third line has been laid down. This extra line is to enable engines to take out or bring in one set of trucks without disturbing the other sets which are being loaded or emptied. The platforms are built upon solid foundations. . First, there are a seri...

THE INFLUENZA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 11 May 1872

-?- j THE INFLUENZA. "INFLUENZA" is an Italian word, and ii means what we express in English, by almosl the same word, influence. A century or tw< ago, people believed in the existence o: witches, and in the influence of the stars, When they saw a complaint come suddenly amongst them, and affect great numbers, without au obvious reason, they attributtc the visitation to the stars. It is said thal it was in this way, that the word Influenza, as applied to the disease so called originated Though it was absurd to think that thc complaint had anything to do with thc stars, the name is not a bad one, for the Influenza certainly springs from some pervading influ- ence. Now, though we are apt to laugh at the opinions of our ancestors, we are not able ourselves to trace clearly the causes ol this disease. It is generally agreed, now-a days, that the complaint is not infectious. It may, for anything we can prove to the contrary, be occasioned by some subtle poison diffused through...

OUR MINES. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 11 May 1872

OUR MINES. DUBING the past month the mining excitement has in . creased rather than diminished, and newspaper columns | continue to be filled with glowing prospectuses of eligible investments in gold, tin, and copper convpanies -the first-named predominating. It has been a hard matter to find a man like the shade of the murdered Banquo, with " no speculation in his eyes ; " and' the excitement which has prevailed for many days appeared to reach its climax when it was announced that the enormous cake of gold lately pro- duced from Krohmann's claim, and known, as " Kroh mann's last," was to be shown at the exhibition. All other objects of interest seemed to fall dead in the estimation of the crowd of eager visitants who pressed about the space allotted to "Minerals," and awaited anxiously the advent of the welcome stranger. For two or three days its appearance was prevented, but on Thursday, May 2, the " monster cake" was the centre point to which thousands of eyes were directed. In c...

The Month. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 11 May 1872

Ix giving a synopsis of the events of the month, we feel hound to accord the first place to the very successful Exhibition opened by our local Agricultural Society on the 30th ult., and closed some eight or nine days afterwards. The spirited promoters of this magnificent Show have reason to congratu late themselves, not only on account of the high character of their presentations to the public, but also with regard to the cordial support they received throughout from both exhibitors and supporters. In an article like this, it would be impossible to enter into details ; but we may safely say that, while the exhibits in every department were ex- cellent, those constituting the Fine Arts sec- tion seemed to have occupied the premier place in the good opinion of the large and brilliant assemblies who attended day after day to criticise them. The fact that some of the pictures most admired were from the studios 1 of Australian artists was, no doubt, a cir- cumstance that conspired to giv...
