The Orange Groves' and Orchards of Parramatta. [Bï OUR SPECIAL REPORTER.] IN no part ot Now South Wales aro thoro more delightful homos than those which stud tho town and suburbs of Parramatta. Not in every instance the retreat of tho high and wealthy-whose leisure is devoted to enjoymont, although there aro many abounding with all that art can produce, or luxury demand-but the genial, kindly homos of a class of yoomon, of tillers of tho soil, who having in former timos settled down upon grants of land, and, with an amount of industry, beyond all praise, changed the wilderness into verdant meadows, and superseded rugged gum trees by fruitful vinoyardsand teoming orchards.

New South Wales as a Sugargrowing Country. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 29 January 1870

New South Wales as a Sugar growing Country. ONE of tho most important considerations in the question wo have set ourselves to offer some sug gestions upon, is that of the adaptability of our soil and climate for tho culturo of the best varieties of sugar carie. Until within a very recent period tho ; idea of introducing the cane into New South Wales was considered extremely absurd. We had been so I much accustomed to hear the cano spoken of as a tropical plant, and in connection with the East and West Indies, the Malacca Straits, the Mauritius, &c, that we overlooked the fact that it was extensively and snccessfully cultivated in Louisiana, New Or leuns, and other places lying within Bindiar parallels of latitude with ourselves, and exposed to atmo spheric influence much less favourable to the growth of the carie than can be found m many parts of this colony. It was i laid down as an invariable rule that it could not be ? grown to a profit at a lower latitude than 25' north ...

How Weeds are Propagated. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 29 January 1870

- I How Weeds are Propagated, i IT is an of ton noticed faot that after frosh ground has been broken to a oonsiderablo depth, or the earth thrown up from the bottom of a pit or well, that nowj and curious weeds make thoir appearance on the sur-i face thus exposed. It is true that seeds, alike oij usoful br noxious plants, are carried to a great distance, by birds. The down of tho thistle seed floats it afar.! But do tho birds and the wind account for all tho facti to bo observed in connection with tho spread of seeds? We think not. There are certain scrts of seeds, par-« titularly thoBO of the oleaginous kind, which keep in vigour a great many years when deeply buried, what) observor of those things has not noticed weeds not before found in the locality, and the seeds of which had ho adaptability for floating in the atmosphero, suddenly spring up rank on earth that in sinking a well or shaft! came from a depth of many feet, and had no admixture with the surface soil ?

Stagnant Water Causing Abortion in Cattle. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 29 January 1870

Stagnant Water Causing Abortion? in Cattle. \ THE editor of tho North British Agriculturist, anBwer-j ing a correspondent, says :- j "We are glad to have boen able to afford you a clue, to the causes which havo produced suóh loases amongst your cows. Stagnant or foul water is injurious to all animals.' It causes blood poisoning, and thus leads to] many febrile'complaints. It brings On abortion inj other - animals os well as in cows. Two winters ago, three valuable mares, belonging to a somewhat careless,} untidy farmer, slipped thoir colts shortly after Christ-! mos. These mares had been tolerably well kept, and,' not too hardly wrought, but they had been watered for several weeks at a pool, by tho side of which a larga manuro heap had beon foolishly placed, and into which; . tho highly coloured organic matters freely found thei^ way. Some ewes. watered from the same pool casig .their lambs ; whiht another lot of ewes kept two fiolda distant, managed in exactly the same way, but enj...

ACCLIMATISATION. Queensland. IT appears from the proceedings of the Queensland Ac climatisation Society that His Excellency Governor Blackall has rendered material assistance to tho Society in not only drawing the favourable consideration of the Home Government to its objects, but in opening tho I correspondence with places where previously there was no hope of communication. The financial condition of I the Society is upon the whole gratifying-the deer have increased satisfactorily, and plants of tho mango have been sent to about twenty different parts of the colony. Tho Council have reason to bo proud at being able to state that they have succeeded in raising tho famous Sourya (the tulip tree of India), of which a considerable number aro growing at Bowen park, and tho glorious poinciana regia are also being raised in hundreds. This is the more gratifying at a time when the question (and want) of shade trees is again being discussed. Among other now plants introduced, the value of ...

The Betting Market. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 29 January 1870

The Betting Market. : THERE is very little to report this week v no right out betting on the Derby having been. done. Public opinion seoras to be that there is only horse in. tho Derby, namely, Charon ; and now that most of tho Cup horses have been backed for the double in connection with linn, there is very little to tempt backers. Tho gentlemen of the metallics would bo employed all day ff they had doubles such as Charon and Tim, Charon and Charon, or Charon and Earl ; so that; until some other Derby horse shows in something Uko form during the training, there will not bo much betting. Moselle is backed occasionally ; a thousand to twenty was taken about her for the Derby, and Tim for tho gold cup. The best price against Tim now'-for the gold cup ia six to one, and not much money to be got at that price. Circassian has been backed to win a thousand at twelve to one ; and six to ono was taken in hundreds about Mr. Winch pulling off thiB event. Offers were made to take {thousands to...

Victoria Sporting News. [FROM OUR SPECIAL CORRESPONDENT.] [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 29 January 1870

Victoria Sporting News. [FROM OUR 8PE0IAL CORRESPONDENT. ] MR. COFFIN'S team of English Champion Pedestrians are doing steady work at Brighton under their trainer's guidance ; the heat of the weather should greatly assist in reducing the superfluous flesh on the trio, and when again they show in public we may expect a very different result to that of last Saturday week. Hewitt is already heavily backed against our champion Harris, and the men are putting it on their own com rade in the most fearless manner. Harris's friends are, however, very sanguine, and, as he was never in better trim, we may expect some fine work on the 6th and 7th of next March. Cricket is agáin quiet, since we hear by telegram that tho Sydney team will not visit us until the middle of March. The twenty men selected by the Inter colonial Match Committee have consequently been dis» banded, and practice play is out of the question until February. Tho matohes played lost week wero rather uninteresting-that between...
