MR. H. M. STANLEY. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 23 November 1872

MR. H. M. STANLEY. ! The fate of the celebrated African ex- plorer, Dr. Livingstone, which for some years was veiled in obscurity, has now been brought to light by the more than public spirit of Mr, James Gordon Bennett, the proprietor of tho Neio York Herald, who. at his sole cost, despatched Mr. H. M. Stanley, tho subject of our engraving, to track out the intrepid explorer. It says but little for the enterprise of the Government of Eng- land that it has permitted a private citizen of America to perform what . it was its bounden duty to do. However, the result has been most gratifying to the whole civilised world. The circumstances attending Mr. Stanley's expedition have been made so thoroughly known that it is unnecessary to racapitulate them, but we present our readers with an engraving of his portrait, MR. H. M. STANLEY, THE RELIEVER OF DR. LIVINGSTONE. taken in his African costume by the London Stereoscopic Company. He has been made a lion of and fêfced in England to his heart...

HORTICULTURAL SOCIETY'S SPRING SHOW. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 23 November 1872

HORTICULTURAL SOCIETY'S SPRING SHOW. IN this issue we present our sub- scribers with a sketch made during the late Exhibition. Usually the Society has had to battle with ad- verse weather, and, consequently, the success of their Exhibitions has been a good deal marred, but, on the last occasion, the weather was really charming. The Show itself was chiefly con- fined to collections of plants from gardens of private individuals, who have at their command the services of professional gardeners, and from amateurs. The display of flower- ing plants was not so large as might have been desired, by reason . of the Exhibition being held two or three weeks too late for many of our most gorgeous blooming shrubs. Still, there was quite suffi- cient to charm the eye-the pelar- goniums, in particular, being re- markably well represented. The specimens of variegated-foliaged plants were numerous, and" beauti- fully grown-those from the nur- sery of Mr. Graham, of Lilydale, and from the private con...

Australian Natural Distory. THE OPOSSUM. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 23 November 1872

Australian Natural ïftëtorp* THE OPOSSUM. THE OPOSSUMS, of which, there are several varieties, are also marsupial animals, and are very numerous in the open forest and brush lands, their habitation is the hollow of large trees, from which they rarely venture out except at night. Shooting opossums is a very favorite sport for moonlight nights, when a great many may be killed by one whose eye is quick at detecting them, and whose skill as a marksman is sufficiently good to bring them from their elevated perches ; to a person who is well accus- tomed to its use, a long barrelled pistol is better for this purpose than a gun, first, because it is a more portable article in scrambling through the brushwood, and secondly, because it is frequently necessary to fire at a point immediately above the head of the sportsman. The presence of opos- sums may be detected by a peculiar shrill cry to which they give utterance ; or by the marks made by their claws in ascending the trees. The opossum se...

CHINESE THEATRICALS IN MELBOURNE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 23 November 1872

CHINESE THEATRICALS IN MELBOURNE. üOTH at Jiouie and abroad the Ce- lestials are particularly fond of dra- matic representations. As a rule, wherever they settle, as soon as they amass the means, they gratify their fondness for the drama. For some time past Chinese troups of theatrical performers have visited Australia, and lately there has been a company performing in Mel- bourne. In this number we give an engraving of a scene of one of their dramas taken by our special artist. To form the theatre a large tent or marquee is erected, similar to those used by the circus compa- nies ; the lights are suspended from the pole in the centre which sup- ports the canvas, and the stage is ordinarily raised some four or five feet from the ground. No scenic \aid is^considered necessary, but a richly brocaded curtain separates the actors while before the public, from tlie green-room behind. The orchestra generally consists of thfee musicians, one playing a pe ctliar-looking instrument similar t...

POSTMAN IN THE FERN GULLIES. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 23 November 1872

POSTMAN IN THE FERN GULLIES. AMONG those individuals whose avocations bring them in contact with beautiful glimpses of Nature are some of our inland mailmen, engaged in the postal service from township to township. Some of them traverse the most picturesque localities, but, if familiarity with charming scenery is calculated to render it less attractive, those men in the daily rou- tine of letter-carrying gradually cease to feel the influence o? the beautiful. Our illus- tration represents one of those delightful gullies in Victoria, where the vegetation consists almost entirely of fern trees ; where the immense fronds droop gracefully over the forest paths, or are entwined with mag- nificent creepers, forming romantic glades that charm the hearts of poets, artists, and -shall we name it?-the gushing couples who stray from the main body of "picnic era," renouncing society and cham- pagne. "O Solitude! where are the charms that sages have seen in thy face ? " Well, we' should say that...

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

OUR CATTLE. 1 IT is with the greatest pleasure that we re- gard this prosperous season for the farmer and grazier. Possibly never in the history of this colony have the cattle and sheep been freer from all forms of disease ; turn where ever we will the eye meets but the same vigorous appearance and cheering prospects. The rapidity with which we pass from one state or condition is truly marvellous ; it is to be hoped, however, that this unmeasured prosperity will not make us forgetful about the most plain duties, and that the best con- ceivable form of preparation will be made and . made fully to meet at once the exigencies of any change ; hitherto we have been totally destitute of anything like an organization of means adapted to meet the desired end. The tremendous startling statistics set be- fore the public of this colony through the Agricultural Editor of this paper are most alarming, and go most unmistakeably to shew that the destruction and loss, from one cause and another, to...

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

<B\xv jfanm OUR promised plans for the homestead occupy too much space to afford them justice in this issue, owing to press of other matter ; but we present our readers with a diagram for our shelter sheds that we pro- pose to erect at the intersections of the meet- ing angles of the. divisional paddock fences. No. 1 is the elevation of the building. It is built entirely of timber, covered with bark, which, on decay, may be replaced with cor- rugated iron, or better yet, covered with iron in the first instance. The sides are slabbed up to the height shewn. A floor is laid, raised 1 ft. 6 in. above the ground, in both bays. This prevents all injury from damp to the inlaying crops, by affording the free circulation of air under them. The verandahs, or more properly, leantos, give shade and «helter to the Uve-stock, and cover for im- plements and tools, and with the main roof, .will collect the rainfall, and, with corrugated iron, even the dew, for the use of the ani- mals, ...

HOP PICKING IN GIPPS LAND. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 23 November 1872

MELBOURNE MODEL LODG1NOHOÜSE. HOP PICKING IN GIPPS LAND. I Of all rural scenes, perhaps that of hop pickjDg is the very prettiest ; and as this in . dustry is DOW thoroughly acclimatised in Victoria, it will no doubt be familiar to some of our readers. At Bairnsdale, however, (aa may be seen from the annexed view), a freßh element of the picturesque has been introduced by the employment of aboriginal labor, and our Gripps Land friends certainly deserve credit for this entirely new develop- ment ot " native industry." The numerous well eheltered flats occurring along the conree of the Mitchell River appear to be eminently adapted to the'sticcessful culture of the hop, and already there are several plantation» in full bearing in the neighbor- hood of Bairnsdale. The yield this season has been from 1200 lb. to 1400 lb. per acre. The prejudice our brewers entertained against the use of colonial hops is now fast disappearing, and will eventually die out, as an article equal in quality to...

OYSTER CULTURE IN TASMANIA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 23 November 1872

OYSTER CULTURE IN TASMANIA. By J. E. CALDER. TAKING the number of boats employed at Southport and Recherche Bay in 1866 (namely, five working the whole season and fifteen half of it) as twelve boats, and reckon- ing their take to be the same as Elliott's, namely, eightyrtwo thousand each, then the total supplies that reached Hobart Town from these two bays only in that year was just about one million ; and as half a million more probably reached it from other quarters, the total supply may have been a million and a-half : but from the facility that these shell-fish are disposed of by the fishermen to the Town vendors at good high prices, there is no difficulty in believing that another million might be got rid of if they could be obtained, and which, before they reached the consumer, would' be worth, at fifty-five shillings a thousand, five thousand five hundred pounds. . If' oyster-farming were practised here in anything like the careful manner in which it is followed in either Eng...

Family Medical Guide. CHOLERA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 23 November 1872

CHOLERA. ALTHOUGH Cholera has, by the interposition of Providence, decreased in virulence, and the cases that occur are comparatively few, it is well to incorporate in our medical direc ; tions the circular issued by the Royal College of Physicians relative to the. treatment of this fatal disease. In any case of sudden emergency, where medical attendance cannot be immediately procured, these instructions will be of the greatest use. " 1. No degree of looseness of the bowels should be neglected for a single hour. Medical advice should be at once sought wheu the looseness begins ; and, previous to the arrival of a medical attendant, some of the medicines at other times used for' checking diarrhoa should be taken,-for example, the chalk mixture ; the compound cinnamon powder ; or the compound chalk powder with opium, in doses from 20 to 40 grains for an adult. "2. No saline aperieuts or drastic purga- tives should he taken without the advice of a medical man. "3. Intemperance in eating...

Chapters on Common Things No. 10.—COFFEE. Continued. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 23 November 1872

Chapters? on Common Cbtngs No. 10.-COFFEE. Continued. "WILDER and more beautiful scenes can j scarcely bc found than those amidst which ! the coffee estates of Ceylon are formed. Vast tracts of land, cleared from huge forest trees, stretching along the steep sides of mountains, with the unfelled monsters of the jungle, waving their broad branches to the cold north winds, above ; while below, miles of green " pcattena," or prairie-grouud, may be seen winding through the valleys, skirted by low tufts of oriental underwood ; and dotted over with herds of wild buffaloes, with here and there the villagers' cattle quietly grazing. A plantation thus situated, when in full bearing, and with all the usual buildings on it, presents a most picturesque appearance, worthy the pencil of any artist. In its earlier stage, however, it wears a totally different aspect, and the life of a coffee-planter, under such circumstances, is far from being either easy or agreeable. Many of the best plantations ...

HEALTH AND CLEANLINESS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 23 November 1872

HEALTH AND CLEANLINESS. * "NOTHING really worth, having or caring about in this world," said Sir-Walter Scott, is "uncommon." This was said truly. We are apt, nevertheless, to be insensible to the blessings we possess in things easily attain- able. The bountiful supply of water iu most of the habitable parts of the earth, does not call forth from men that constant feeling of grateful satisfaction which it de- serves to do. Certainly, men do not use the element 30 profusely and to so much purpose as they ought. They drink it ; like food and air, it is perfectly necessary to them. I But when they are collected into large ! masses in towns, what a dirty puddle is I swallowed by them in ¡nace of the liquid crystal from the hands of nature. By and by, when men are farther advanced in social arrangements, and are able to co-operate better, our large cities will be supplied with a beverage very different from the wretched stuff now thrown into the cisterns. In con- nection with the abundan...
