Austsalisn Meat in England. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Macquarie News and Hastings River Advocate — 29 July 1882
Austsali&a Meat in England. Undocbtbdly (says the European Mail) the most important and gratifying event in con nection with tlie Australasian colonies since our last lias been the arrival in tlie East India Docks of the sailing ship Dunedin, after a 98 days' passage, with 5,000 carcases of sheop in first-class condition for the London market. The result was, of course, immediately tele 'Tftplied to the colonies, and much satisfaction will, be expressed at the complete success of thdftxperiment. As for the Smithfield sales pfipl/iitey cannot speak too highly of the meat, IJfiOh, bs we write, is rapidly going into con liWWfr The first lot of 600-wergjmtoa bninspecting' the carcases half-a-dofeen first class salesmen offered to take large quan tities, and the whole was very soon disposed of at an average price of a little over Cd. per lb., and this has been the ruling rate, up to the present. The consignment^ therefore, is likely to turn out a grand success for all con cerned....

Self-Lighting Electric Buoys and Self-acting Foghorns. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Macquarie News and Hastings River Advocate — 29 July 1882
Self-Liglitiag Electric Buoys aad Self-acting Poghorae. A kovisl application of the motive power supplied by tin; waves of the sea has been designed by an American inventor, Mr. Bigler, of Nuwbury, in the utilisation of the movements of tin- water for the purpose of illuminating an electric lamp attached to buoys placed to nuirk sunken rocks or other dangers to navigation. lixpiriMiients rocuntly made at New York seem to prove the practicability of the scheme. A small dynamo electric machine is iixed to the buoys con- | nccted with a mechanical contrivance so arranged Uiat tli^ movements ot Hie ui^y as it is tossed about liy the waves set 'itr-vii . motion, and so general c a current of electricity, which is conveyed to an Edihon incandescent lamp Iixed outside t''.e buoy. The intermit tc!iit action of the waves conveys a correspond ing intermittent act ion to the machine, a:id causes a similar alternate illumination mid extinction of thi; lamp. Consequently, when ii the sea is roug...
Morton's Creek. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Macquarie News and Hastings River Advocate — 29 July 1882
Kortoa's Croak. A lctteb appears in another column, from a correspondent of theabovcdistrict,in reference to a bridge over this Creek. In a former note on this subject, we stated, that if reliable information were furnished to our local Road Superintendent, that the traffic on this road warranted the expenditure of £600 for a bridge, we gave it as our opinion, that he wliat our correspondent says is true, and we have no reason to doubt his word, then, un doubtedly, he has furnished evidence — much quicker than we expected— abundantly suf ficient to warrant the erection immediately of the above bridge. The figures, which he has given to us, have surprised us; and when we know that they will every year be augmented, it becomes impurativu that this work should no longer be delayed. If there were no pre cedent to advance, it might make tho matter a little more difficult. But when we know that there are many, it makes the matter, on the contrary, very easy. To select one of them — since ...

Some Considerations about Butter. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Macquarie News and Hastings River Advocate — 29 July 1882
^^p^Coasiasiratioas'^bottt Batter. , ?? Diwebent qualities in butter are not always «4ually estimated, and the different elements which determine its value' as foodj are some-' times . overlooked, or not appreciated. , In judging it, one lays great stress upon the tex ture or 'grain,' — which is determined by .the manipulations in the churn or -worker, and has some reference to merit; Another is par ticular about the colour, which, though con. tributing to flue appearance, adds- nothing to intrinsic value. Colour in butter is as foreign to inherit merit as chlorophyll is to 'the nu tritive ? value of. the leaves . which, .contain i*. Another attaches great importance to stiffness or an ability to stand up firm in warmweather — a circumstance which indicates an unusual .amount of stearine % in ite composition. 'Body,' or a feeling as if possessed of a good ideal of solid substances, is a condition often valued very highly. This is another pecu liarity which depends chiefly on a Urge ...
