LAND DRAINAGE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian — 22 October 1864

LAND DRAINAGE. The following |W|>er on land drainage, which was road at the last, meeting of tho New Zea land Agricultural Society by Mr. Thomas Spencer, will no doubt be interesting to eomo of our readers ••— Gentlemen,—Tlie subject I liave chosen to introduoe to your notice this afternoon, and which I bad uncroidubly postponed at our last meeting, is tho drainage of land. I think you will agree with me that it is a subject teoond to no operation of firming on all heavy laud. In England, of late years, it is considered quite a national question, aud large sums were voted by Parliament for the purpose of lending to landed proprietors to effectually drain their estates, and of tho beneficial working of this system, I can vouch for one instanoo whioh .came under my own observation, A. rector borrowed £500 to drain his glebe land. He mado the tenants pay the yearly interest oil the sum borrowed, aud iucreased their rents twenty per cent. I can assure you that the tenants were in a b...

MANUFACTURE OF COLONIAL SUGAR. (FROM THE LIVERPOOL ALBION.) [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian — 22 October 1864

I MANUFACTURE OF COLONIAL 8UGAB. (rBOX TBB UTBBTOOL HMO*.) The use of lime in foeprocoMofclarifyingeane juice lias forite object the aeparation of most of the extraneous matters from the sugar in eolation, which imparities combine with the lime in an inaoiofole state. Bat the separation, ' to he oomplete, necessitates an excess of lime, which excess remains in a clarified juice. True, to make a good clarification—that is, to purify as much as possible by means of lime, so as to obtain a transparent liquor—lime must be used to excess the pectime, the' asoted, the pro toque matter, which in the cans Juice form with the lime combinations eo much the more in soluble in the juice at they are basic, te^ com bined with more lime.

FACTS ABOUT MILK. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian — 22 October 1864

FACTS ABOUT MILK. BY BE. TOELCKER, TV TJ1E BATH AXD WEST OP I EKGLAM) SOCIETY'S JOCRNAL. 1. Tliat moat milk wm produced by 5Jlb. of rape-cake, 361b. of mangolds, and 251b. of oat-straw. 2. Thata reduction of 9-10!b. of rape-cake in the daily food per cost diminished a good deal the milk of the superior cows. The eight cows in the third period yielded 41 litres less milk per day, 0 55 litre per cow. According to theee results, lib. of rape-cake produced ou on average 1 i-5th lb. of milk. 3. In the sixth series of experiments, the cowb received 61b. less brewers' grains than in the fifth series. This diminished the produce in milk to the extent of 0 72 litre. It thus appears that lib. of brewers' grains produced about lib. or milk. 4. In the first and third seriesofexperiments very nearly the same amount of milk was pro duoed. In both sets of experiments the same quantity of mangold-wurtzcl and oat-straw was given, and the ISib. of brewers' grains given in the first aeries were replac...

PHYSICAL CHANGES RESULTING FROM AUSTRALIAN COLONISATION. (Concluded.) CHANGE IN CLIMATE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian — 22 October 1864

PHYSICAL CHANGES RESULTING FROM AUSTRALIAN COLONISA TION. By AV. Lockiiiht Morton. (Concluded.) CHANGE IN CLIMATE. In reference to the singular and well known facts, that pastures which were for some years after the first settlement of the cofony admirably fitted for sheep, but which can be no longer occupied with this description of stock, or only with sheep continually liable to diseases of the feet, the following explanation may be given—trampling of stock has rendered the surface soil Jess absorbent. Slightly undulating or flat tracts of land thus now retain in pools or clay-pans a large portion of the rain water which descends upon them, whilst great quantities of water, flowing slowly from more rising ground, keep the general surface for many months almost constantly wet. These changes produce diseases amongst sheep, which are attacked by foot-rot, fluke, and worms, to such an extent that it is impossible to keep them. A very large area of this colony is now unfit to maintain ...

FARMING NEWS FROM HOME. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian — 22 October 1864

FARMING NEWS FROM HOME. There is generally less variety in the farming news from home which reaches ub bv the October mail than in any other month of the year. The harvest is aU in all. Just as the Australian child is com tnencinR her course of cultivation, Mother Britannia is ending hers. Opto the date of the last intelligence, the various ac counts agree that the harvest will be barely up to the average in quantity, but possibly, as far at least as the wheat is concerned, above it in quality. Both in England and the Scotch lowlands, the summer has been unusually hot and dry. The effect has not been favourable. "For the last few weeks," says the Marl-lane Express, "we have been continually about the country, and in almost every direction have we seen the same sights and btcrd the same tales. The stock is perishing for lack of mois ture, with the pastures as hard and dry as the London pavement; whilst, how ever well wheat may be supposed to 1 muriate in a warm, sunshiny season, the ...

THE YEOMAN'S PAGE. THE DISEASES OF CATTLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian — 22 October 1864

THE YEOMAN'S PAGE. THE DISEASES OF CATTLE. Fortuimtely, this is not a subjoet of such imnmfiiate importance with us as it was a year or two since, for one of the worst diseases to whieh cattle are ex posed, pleuro-pneumonia, is fast losing its virulent character here. Whether to resume it again or not, as it has done in other countries, after longer or shorter periods, we have yet to learn. However, there is still more than enough of con tagion remaining, and low-conditioned working bullocks, and half-starved dairy cows, supply ready victims to per petuate this, even though the more ro bust health and greater vigour of the majority of station cattle have enabled them to throw off the malady to a great extent, and the number of diseased cattle now slaughtered is, therefore, compara tively small. Bo far there is cause for satisfaction ; but this disease is still rag ing in those portions of Australia to which it has been lately introduced, aud the tendency in cattle bred according to ...

Tennyson's long-expected now volume is now before tlio world, end its contents will not disappoint the anticipations of those more sensible admirer* of the Laureate who do not 1 expect a poet, any more than a steam-engine, always to be working at high pressure.
