The Reason Why Mining and Manufactures are not Encouraged. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 8 January 1870

The Beason Why Mining and Manufao- J tures are not Encouraged. | THE greatest diífieulty in connection with local enter- ¡ frises is the distaste tha active capitalists, and particu- i; arly the business men of Sydney, have to investing in i industrial corporations. There is a feverish desire to J grow rich speedily by speculating, which, in many cases, ¡ if narrowed down, is scarcely removed from actual I gambling. The disposition of retired moneyed people is to keep their individual oapitol available for any permáa» S ent investment, and under their immediate control. ? This, under circumstances rating and affecting property £ in a general way, is perhaps to bo commended, but at i' present is inimical to tho permanent prosperity of the ; colony. As long as it continues to prevail, all mining ; and manufacturing enterprises are at the mercy of í popular caprice and transient finanoial panics. To auo- i ceed in mining and manufacturing enterprises we need * \ the mass of property-ho...

THE GRAZIER. THE PASTORAL INTEREST— ITS CONDITION AND PROSPECTS. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 8 January 1870

THE GRAZIER. THE PASTORAL INTEREST ITS CONDITION AND PROSPECTS. WE shall he pardoned if, upon the launch ing of this new medium of mental in tercourse, we take a glance at the present posi tion of the pastoral interest, and endeavour to estimate its prospects for the future. The industrious pioneer of colonisation, in braving difficulties amid the solitudes of the remote interior, is shut out by his very avoca tion from opportunities and discoveries that, if known to him, would make life moro easy and his pursuit more profitable. These it shall be our duty to chronicle and depict, so that they may become the property of those whos . wel fare they are calculated to promote. The times loudly demand that some effort should be made on behalf of the main interest of the colony. It must be conceded that the pastoral interest is not now what it was years ago. Not that the numbers of our herds of cattle, our sheep, and our horses are less than they formerly were, taken together, but that th...

IMPROVED PROCESS OF SUGAR MAKING IN MAURITIUS. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 8 January 1870

IMPROVED PROCESS OP SUGAR MAKING- IN MAURITIUS. ALTHOUGH there is no department of manufacturing' industry in which moro progress has been mado: during tho last ten years than in the production of sugar, it is equally true that there is none in which so much remains to bo dono. Tho extraction of a porfectly whito sugar direct from tho juice of the cano and beet, without refining» is now an accomplished fact. At tho last great Exposition in Paris, beautiful specimens of sugar so produced, from three ostates in Mauritius, wero ex hibited and took gold medals. It should bo remem bered that thoso boautiful samples were produced without tho uso of a partido of bono black, and without tho addition of any injurious chemical sub stance. M. Pou lin, ono of the threo enterprising planters who received the gold modal, as before stated, gives tho following simple statemont of tho process em ployed : " The canes are crushed in very powerful steam mills, the cylinders of which turn extremely slow...

SPORTING. TATTERSALL'S CLUB RACES. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 8 January 1870

SPOUTING._ TATTERSALL'S CLUB RAGES. Perhaps as the celebration of an annual race meei ing at a small country village, the races at Randwic on Saturday might have been considered as ord narily successfid, but as the New Yoar's Day me( of a great metropolitan club they could by no moan be viewed in that light. Tho races wore, with a fe-* exceptions, mediocre ; the attendance was wretche in the extreme ; and everything in connection wit the anniversary was docidodly slow. Other attrac tions in various directions drow many from th course that would doubtless otherwise havo bee present; and these also demanded tho sendees c some of tho omnibuses that usually ply on tho Eand wick Road at race times. In consequence th limited number of licensed vehicles ongaged di a fair enough business. There was very littl crushing or rushing on the road, and only one o two mishaps. The break down at about noon of a old rattletrap 'bus, (such as, to tho disgrace of th authorities, there aro too many plyi...

CHAPTER III.—THE LAWYER AND HIS CLERK. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 8 January 1870

CHAPTER III.-THE LAWYER AKD HIS CLERK. Whoa Mark parted from kia mistress he made the best of his way to tho town. His thoughts wero busy enough. At one " moment tho grief which he felt at parting with the ono sole being ho loved on earth, and who loved him, over-ruled all other feelings ; then came tho hope of tho future, when by tho exercise of energy and determination ho should win that gold which would make Maud his own. Of this he had no doubt ; for youth is always sanguine. For thero are few who can look back to thoir young days, and cannot remember the glorious dreams which thon carno to thom ; dreams of tho happy fate in storo for them. Why, whon we aro young, we can do everything-in our imagination. Wo will bo groat, good, famous, rich, as our disposition prompts us.

Facts for Farmers. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 8 January 1870

Facts for Farmers. Seed of the Cinchona tree, from which quinine ia made, haa been widely distributed for a trial through the mountain regions of tho Southern States of America. The troublea in Cuba have stimulated augar plant ing in Louisiana, and the farmers all along tho Gulf coast are asking whether tho cane will not flourish on their places. Take any variety of grain, fruit, or potato : give it a queer name, conceal its faults carefully, publish its virtues Kberally, and you may maka a fortune out of a .., humbugged community. Lands aro made to increase, yearly in fertility, mainly in three ways-by buying commercial fertil izers, by plowing under clover, by buying rich food for animals and aaving all their droppings. That fanner understands Iiis business who knows wliioh mode is best for him. The most successful farmers practice all three. ! The blooms of the common marigold (calendula) in fused in equal parts of pure alcohol and water, is an admirable remedy for all kinds of w...

BEDTIME. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 8 January 1870

BEDTIME. ROSEBUD lay in hor trundle-bod, With her small hands folded above her hoad, And fixed her innocent eyes on me, While a thoughtful shadow caine over their glee; "Mamma !" said she, "when I go to sloop, And ho comos and carries it far away, To tile beautiful home whore His angels stay. I gather rod roses, and lilies so white, I sing with the angels through all thc long night j And when, in tho morning, I wake from my sloop, Ho gives back the soul I gave him to keep, And I only remember, like beautiful dreams, The garlands of lilies, the wondorful streams." WHY is tlie lettei-gF like death ?-It makes all fall. IF a person ÍB learning many languages, what Bhould he end -with ?-the Finnish, of eourso.

If tho ants give an example of industry, it.is much more than a good many uncles do. "You'll put mo out of temper,", as tho knife said to tho obstinate oyster. With many women, going to ohurch is little better than loo lung into a bonnet shop. WHAT porter is not allowed to be chrunk?-Tho Eailway porter. Marriage makes a man and woman one, but tho trouble is to tell which of them is thc otic. Why was Martin Luther like a dyspeptic blackbird ? Because tho Diet of Worms disagreed with lum. Why do tho birds feel depressed carly in a summer morning ? Bccauso their little bills are all over dew. Teacher: "Who was David? Boy: "Tho son of Jesse." Teacher: "And who was Jesse?"
