BALMAIN CHEMICAL WORKS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 23 November 1872

BALMAIN CHEMICAL WORKS. THESE* works are situated at Balmain, at the entrance to Iron Cove, and were erected by Messrs. Elliott Brothers; of Sydney, 1865. The principal products are sulphuric, nitric, and muriatic acids, sulphate of iron, soft soap, bone-dust, and superphosphate of lime. The'sulphuric acid plant consists of three leaden'chambers, ' kilnsj boiler, evaporating páns,. and platinum retorts. The leaden chambers are three in number, two being 60' febt long by 25 feet broad, and 14 feet high V and one is 25x14; Sulphur is burnt in the kilns, from whence the fumes are con- ducted into the first chamber, and from that through! the others. It is in these chambers that the .sulphuric acid is formed. The fumes from'the burning sulphur, or sulphur- ous acid, as it is termed by chemists, mixing in them' with nitrous acid, steam, and atmos- pheric air, by which means it combines with another atom of oxygen and - is converted into', sulphuric acid,' and falls in a liquid state, int...

THE UPPER YARRA. As a companion picture to the view near Fernshawe and the Black Spur, given in our April issue, we now present our readers with a view on the Upper Yarra, engraved from a photograph taken hy Mr. C. Walters. To the tourist, this delightful country presents many inducements to pay it a lengthened visit ; and as it is proposed to supplement the present water-supply of Melbourne from a reservoir at the Watts' River, more atten- tion will be directed to the delightful nooks to be found on the Upper Yarra, nestling under the grand and picturesque character of the district.

ECONOMIC USES OF SHELLS, AND THEIR INHABITANTS. (Concluded.) [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 23 November 1872

ECONOMIC USES OF SHELLS, AND THEIR INHABITANTS. BY HENEY WOODWARD, F.G.S.., F.Z.S. {Concluded.) Pearl-producing Shells.-The pearl-mussel, Unto margaritas fems, afforded the once famous British pearls. It is found in the mountain streams of Britain, Lapland, and Canada, and is used for bait in the Aber- deen cod-fishery. The Scotch pearl-fishery continued till the end of the last century, especially in the river Tay, where the mus- sels were collected by the peasantry before harvest-time. The pearls were usually found in old and deformed specimens. Bound pearls, about the size of a pea, perfect in every respect, were worth £3 or £4. An ac- count of the Irish pearl-fishery was given by Sir R. Redding, in the Philosophical Transactions, 1693. The mussels were found set up in the sand of the river-bed, with their open side turned from the torrent ; about one in a hundred might contain a pearl, and one pearl in a hundred might be tolerably clear. Hyria is the shell which the Chinese em- ...

THE INTERCOLONIAL GIG RACE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 23 November 1872

THE INTERCOLONIAL GIG RACE. THE above interesting event, of which we' give two illustrations, came off at the Bal- main Regatta, on November 9th. From the first it was augured that New South Wales would carry off the prize, and the result verified the prediction. All the crews came to the scratch in good trim, the course was kept well clear, and the weather was admi- rable, so that a sharp contest might have been reasonably expected ; but long before the race was half over the interest in the event had passed away. On leaving the starting-point the Victorian crew went away with the lead, which they maintained until Pyrmont Point was reached. Here No. 1 N.S.W. crew passed them, and gradually increased their lead^until, on reaching home, they were about a quarter of a mile in ad- vance, and passed the flagship ' three and a-half minutes ahead of No. 2 N. S/W., who, in their turn, were one minute and a half in front of the Victorians.

Origins and [?]nbentions. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 23 November 1872

(Btísím mïti intentions. . ORIGIN OP COLOURED PAPER.-It is said that William. East, an English paper-maker, once upon a time set his men to work, and went away on business. While the men were at dinner, Mrs. East accidentally let a blue bag fall into one of the vats of pulp. Alarmed at the occurrence, she determined to say no- thing about it. Great was the astonishment of the workmen when they saw the peculiar colour of the paper, and great the anger of Mr. East when he returned and found that a whole vat of pulp had been spoiled. After giving the paper made from it warehouse room for four years, Mr. East sent it up to his agent in London, to be sold " for what it would fetch." " For what it will fetch ! " said the agent, misunderstanding the mean- ing ; " well, it certainly is a novelty, but he must not expect too much." He sold the whole at a considerable advance upon the market price, and wrote to the mills for as much more as he could get. The surprise of Mr. East may be imagine...

SYDNEY TIN-SMELTING WORKS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 23 November 1872

SYDNEY TIN-SMELTING-WORKS. AMOK G the various industries -.'which' have lately received an impetus or which have been developed in the colony may be men- tioned the works erected for the smelting of different minerals. These have been called into existence by the vast quantities of mineral treasure which have been brought to light within the present year, and tbe prospect of increasing and unfailing supplies. The metals, suchas tin and copper, would cost a large percentage if exported in their crude state, and the formation of smelt- ing establishments has been, consequently, vigorously proceeded with. . The Sydney Tin Smelting and Benning Company may be cited as one/óf the first in the field, and their works are replete with every appliance for carrying out the objects of the company successfully. This establishment is situated on the eastern side of Blue's Bay, North Shore, and has a water frontage of about 250 feet, j A convenient wharf lately erected will give accommodation to v...

loto to Heep ©ouôe. HOME-MADE FURNITURE. To MAKE A CHEAP, EASY, AND HANDSOME CHAIR.-Saw away half the staves of a barrel fourteen inches from the bottom : leave the other half for the back of the chair. Nail, or strongly tack, strips of listing or other stout material across and across, in squares, the bottom of the chair wkich-is-to be-they maybe fastened to cleats nailed on to the inner side. Line the bottom and sides with cotton batting. The frame may now be covered all over with any material chosen-chintz being pretty, if it is to be bought, or worsted reps, if you wish to go to so much expense. The best part of an old cashmere or merino dress will answer. Tack this neatly down, and coyer the seams with gimp or cord. A half-barrel will make a pretty chair for children's use. A TOILET TABLE.-Place a barrel under the mirror, where you wish it. Cover it with a board of the right size, which can be rounded at the corners, if you have any one to do it for you-the board should be abou...

MR. J?. L. MONTAGUE'S NEW SOUTH WALES ART UNION. CONSIDERABLE attraction has been caused during the past week or two by an exhibition of oil-paintings in the shop-window of Mr. P. Brown, George-street, near King-street. These pictures are well worth the inspection of , all who take an interest in the truthful delineation of ? Australian landscape scenery -and who wish to encourage the develop- ment of the Fine Arts in this colony. The pictures consist of eighteen exquisite landscapes in oil, and twenty-two oleo-pho tographs of charming scenery in England and Wales. : . - The original sketches in dil/are all from the brush of Mr. Fearnleigh '-L, Montague ; and are perfect examples' of colonial scenery -ranging from Illawarra to the southward, Rydal to the west, and the Paterson to the north. It is-the intention of Mr. Montague to dispose of them by an Art Onion-this being the third 'animal one .hei has held in Sydney. The first prize is, indeed, a beauti- ful work of art. It is entit...

THE AUSTRALIAN AND EUROPEAN TELEGRAPH. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 23 November 1872

THE AUSTRALIAN AND EUROPEAN TELEGRAPH. IT is an interesting and by no means unprofitable study to trace out the progress of any invention-from the time when the first crude idea flashes through the mind of genius until it has passed through all the phases of theory and practice, and stands out at last a blessing and a wonder to the nations. At first the progress of invention was slow and falter- ing. It had much to contend against and but little to give it impetus, and so it happened that many of the industries which now pour out comforts, conveniences, and luxuries over the face of the civilized world, were | originated by men who died of want and penury long before the fruition of their glorious labours. These were the men who were stigmatized as fools and madmen, who, with self-denying constancy, the recollection of which brings a pain to our hearts in these present days, " toiled to reach the cloudy summits of their time." We need not refer to the old Dutchman, Laurence Coster, ...

BOOTH AND CO.'S STEAM SAW MILLS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 23 November 1872

BOOTH AND CO. 'S STEAM SAW MILLS A CARUAL voyager to Balmain by the Rey- nolds-street or Bold Rock ferry steamer, would be apt to wonder at the enormous quantity of pine and cedar .logs which float, chained together- into rafts, or lie stranded, at low tide, at the -north-western extremity of Johnstone's Bay. Day after day, some outlying schooner may oe observed hoisting out logs-to join this vast assemblage-and the questions that arise to the lips of the beholder are, first, ^i-Where'doesitallcomefrom?" and, secondly, -.". Where does it all go to ?" To,the. first, we reply, that it comes ffrom the creeks and rivers on our north-eastern coast, where it -originally- formed portion of those magnifi- cent pine and cedar brushes which arc gradually opening up before the axe of civi- lization. Secondly, that it passes, in the shape of logs, through .the establishment of Messrs. John Booth and Co., of Balmain, and comes forth, in every , variety of plank and scantling wherewith to build o...

The Month. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 23 November 1872

The Month. || THE past month has been full of incident and variety ; and the dwellers in New South Wales — at least those in its capital city — have yielded themselves to an unuusual   amount of gaiety.         In the first place, we have had the Open-     ing of Parliament, and, of all the days of the     calendar, time-honoured "Guy Fawkes'   Day'' was the one selected for the auspicious event. What on earth induced our rulers to   postpone their reassembling until it fell upon this anniversary of "gunpowder and treason," we are at a loss to conjecture ; their object is one of those inscrutable mys-   teries which may be classed with the manu- facture of mutton pies, sausages, and a thou- sand other "how is its?" which people of   inquiring minds are always wanting to know. Perhaps, under the impression that our &a...

Accidents and Emergencies. ACCIDENTS BY LIGHTNING. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 23 November 1872

Amîients anti emergencies;. ACCIDENTS BY LIGHTNING. EFFECTS OF LIGHTNING.-Arago, in his "Meteorological Essays," quotes a passage from the celebrated Duhamel de Moveau, who says that lightning, unaccompanied by thunder, wind, or rain, has the property of breaking oat-stalks. The farmers are ac- quainted with this fact, and have a saying to the same effect. In thunder-weather the barking of oak trees is said to be effected with less difficulty . than when the day is fine, the wind in the north, and the sky clear. The hypothesis entertained on the subject of bodies shattered by lightning is, that lightning, by its action, develops in the sub- stances which it traverses an eminently elastic fluid, the tension of which must in- evitably act in all directions. "Would it be a very hazardous supposition if we were to aasume the elastic fluid in question to be no other than the vapour of water ?-i.e., that the tension we have spoken of is the force of steam. Suppose humidity in the fissures...

GOVETT'S LEAP, NEAR BLACKHEATH. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 23 November 1872

GOVETT'S LEAP, NEAR BLACK- HEATH. The following extract from the diary of a gentleman who spent some months in visiting the celebrated picturesque localities which abound within seventy miles of Sydney may not be unacceptable to our readers, more particularly as it very graphically describes the falls a view of which forms' the subject of_ our engraving:-" O a leaving Sydney, the traveller passes through a country for some distance beyond Parramatta chiefly occupied by gardeners, with here and there a suburban residence. The scenery af ter passing the first Zig-Zag is very grand. The peculiarity of this porti m of the railway, the immense blocks of. sandstone protruding from among the trees and the richness of the herbage, add materially to the interest of the scene. Many of the railway stations along this line are mere platforms, at which the trains only «top when required ; but at the Zig-Zag, Blue Mountains, and Viotoria stations from five to ten minutes are allowed for refreshme...

MELBOURNE MODEL LODGINGHOUSE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 23 November 1872

MELBOURNE MODEL LODGING HOUSE. ABOUT the close of the year 1871 a number of gentlemen, having investigated the style of accommodation afforded in the cheap lodging-houses in Melbourne, resolved upon undertaking the erection of a model lodging house for the poorer class of citizens. The Society for the Promotion of Morality cor- dially gave their support, and a sub-commit- tee having been appointed to act, steps were taken to form a company, having a capital of £5000 in 400 shares of £12 10s. each, for the purpose of erecting and furnishing a house for men exclusively, having 200 beds, baths, reading-room, smoking-rooms, and other appurtenances. The whole of the shares have been taken up. The Government of the day generously granted a site for a building. It is intended that the scheme shall be self-supporting, the interest on the paid-up capital being limited to 10 per cent. The plans for the building furnished by Messrs. Crouch and Wilson were adopted, and from these our engraving ...

ADELAIDE ATHLETIC SPORTS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 23 November 1872

I ADELAIDE ATHLETIC SPORTS. THIS entertainment came oír on Saturday, 5th October, and proved a great success. It was supposed that some horse races that were proceeding on the East Park Lands would tell against the pedestrian entertain- ment, but the result showed the reverse, for a very large gathering of the sporting public assembled to witness the various contests. .The weather was all that could be desired, and nothing could be more enjoyable than the scene presented during the afternoon. One feature of the spectacle was amusing. An acacia tree was perfectly full of boys, some of their heads showing above the top- most leaves. The more faithfully an artist represents that scene the less likely is he to gain credit for truthfulness'. The sports gene- rally were greatly enjoyed, as there was some beautiful running. With respect to the great event there was a grèat deal of scep- ticism, but it really seemed to be an honest and hardly-contested race. The following gentlemen acted as...
