Police. HOTHAM COURT. THURSDAY, JULY 3RD. (Before Dr. Lloyd (chairman), Messrs. Laurens, King, Carroll, and Clarke, J.P.'s) ABUSIVE LANGUAGE. -Mrs. Strauss charged Mrs. Duthie with having used abusive language towards her on the even ing of Monday, 30th June. It appeared from the evidence that the parties lived very close to each other, and carry on the same business, and as Mrs. Duthie thought that Mrs. Strauss was taking away her customers, she abused the plaintiff and used very insulting language towards her. The Bench fined the defendant 5s. with 12s. 6d. costs. The plaintiff gave the costs to the poor box. Another case followed, in which Wm. Alexander charged Councillor Bar wise with having called him a "liar and a loafer." The defendant admitted the charge.

Scientific. ROYAL INSTITUTION LECTURES, LONDON. DISCOVERY AND PROPERTIES OF OZONE. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 16 July 1873
Scientific. ROYAL INSTITUTION LEOTURES, LONDON. DISCOVERY AND PaROPL'?tTIES OF OZONE. Professor Odling, M.A., F.R.S., lately gave the first of a course of four lectures on ozone. He began by illustrating Sebin bein's obeervation of the peculiar smell of oxygen liberated by the decomtpo sition of water by a powerlhl electric cur rent from Grove's newly-invented battery, in 1840, owhich he identified with the odour of the electric discharge, also termed the odour of thunder. The question then arose as to the nature or cause of this odour; whether it was due to the production of a new kind of matter or to the peculiarly electrical condition of previously-known matter in air or water. Schtinbein at first believed it to be a new kind of matter, a component of nitrogen, and named it " ozone " (from the Greek ozein, to smell). By study, he ascertained that ozone has the property of attacking some metals, such as mercury and silver; of bleaching vegetable colours, and corroding vegetable fa...
GARDENING. THE VINE. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 16 July 1873
GARDENING. THt VINE. PRESERvATION rRobt FROST.-A few weeks ago we (English l?lechanic) referred to an experiment about to be made at Suresnes on the possibility of. preserving vines from the action of frost by artificial clouds.. These experiments have taken place before a large number of interested observers. In a vineyard of 20 hectares there were placed 360 iron vessels contain ing a heavy oil. All these firepots were lighted at once, and a thick black cloud was interposed between the vines and the sky. When the weather is calm and the sky clear (and it is in such circumstances that the frosts which so injure vines in spring mostly oecur), this cloud continues all the time necessary to exercise its pro. tective influence. The cost of the opera tion (including pots, oil, and labour) was estimated at about 5 francs per hectare, or 2'5 statute acres: and all the viniculturists expressed themselves as struck with the advantages of this means of preservation. As A cnaR roa rcE IIFLLnr...

North Melbourne Advertiser, AND CARLTON ADVOCATE. WEDNESDAY, 16TH JULY. FALLS BRIDGE. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 16 July 1873
AND CARLTON ADVOCATE. WIDI)NESDAY, 16TH JULY. FALLS BRIDGE. The Falls Bridgoe over which an immense traffic daily rolls has been officially pro nounced insecure-liable to fall at any time, or be swept downs byasudden flood -and yet it would appear that no steps are to be taken to avert the threatened danger. Something is said about repairs and securing the bridge, but what form these repairs will take or how the bridge is to be secured, will in all probability be discussed until some dreadful catastrophe occurs, and then every one concerned will blame some one else. Many years ago, and not far from the spot where the bridge stands, the Yarra was crossed by a ferry boat, attached to a rope whichi spanned the river. The boat and the rope were alike old and rotten, and the ferry was worked sometimes by a feeble old man, and sometimes by a little girl. As in the case of the Falls bridge the insecurity of the ferry was pointed out, but those who had the control of the afnlir paid no atte...
CARLTON FIRE BRIGADE. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 16 July 1873
CARLTON FIRE BRIGADE. The urgent necessity for the establish ment of a local fire brigade is a subject that should no longer be neglected, Some time ago the matter was b oughtl before the Council by Councillor Curtain, but it was received very coldly. and nothing resulted from it. The valuable services rendered by local brigades are acknowledged, and it is quite time that Carlton should endeavour to possess one also. In view of the hact that a largo settled population exists in North Carlton far away from the water supply, the urgent need for a small orgamnised body, ready, willing, and prepared to meet any unfortunate calamity by fire that might occur, is at once apparent. The insurance companies would not refuse the same subsidy to the Carlton fire brigade which they pay to the suburban brigades, wbild the City Council are only expected to furnish the necessary implements. A branch of the Melbourne 13rigade might at a very little cost be established. A look-out man might be statio...

Amusements. THE OPERA. As the season for the performance of the English opera company is drawing to a close the Prince of Wales Theatre is well filled every night.
