Shifts and Contribances AVAILABLE IN WILD COUNTRIES. WATER (Continued.) [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 23 November 1872

ê>btfts; anti Continuances AVAILABLE IN WILD COUNTRIES, BY FRANCIS GALTON, F.R.G.S. WATER (Continued.) OCCASIONAL SUPPLIES PROM RAIN, DEW, ETC.-A shower will yield a good supply -the clothes may be stripped off and spread out, and the rain-water sucked from them ; or a cloth or blanket may be made fast by its four corners, in expectation of a coming storm, and a stone or a quantity of bullets thrown in the middle of it, which will cause the water that it receives to drain to one point and trickle through it, down into a cup or bucket set below. An umbrella reversed will catch water ; but the first drippings from clothes that have been long unwashed, as from a macintosh cloak, are intolerably nauseous and very unwholesome. It must be remembered, that thirst is greatly satisfied by the skin being wetted, and, therefore, it is well for a man suffering under thirst to strip to the rain. Lives of sailors have more than once been saved when turned adrift in a boat, by bathing fre- quen...

Selected Poetry. SINCE THEN. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 23 November 1872

Selector ftottrp* SINCE THEN. I came from under the arching boughs My love in the sunlit glen to meet. The roses struggled to reach her hand ; The ivy glided to kiss her feet, The violets leaued on her dress's hem, And the birds .all answered her laughter . sweet. The ferns bent over her leaning head ; The sunbeams clung to her falling hair ; Her eyes were raised in their welcome bright Ah, it was sweet to see her there ! Eor how could we tell what the life would be When it seemed to us both so long and fair ? If I had known how the struggling years Were wretched before us in dull array If I had known of the bitter tears To be shed in the life beyond that day Should I have hidden my eyes that morn, And turned aside from the sunlit way ? If I had known that in one short year * All had been told-one year for a life If I had known how my heart would bleed To watch the change in my drooping wife Should I have held back my hands that morn, And turned alone to the world's hard strife ? Sh...

MRS. BROWN ON CROCODILES.

LAUNCH OF TWO SCHOONERS FROM CUTHBERT'S YARDS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 21 December 1872

LAUNCH OF TWO SCHOONERS FROM CUTHBERT'S YARDS. A VERY interesting ceremony took place on j the 5th instant, on the occasion of the launch of two vessels out of a complement of four intended for the suppression of kidnapping in the South Seas. It speaks well for the Colony, that at so short a notice its resources can be brought to bear in the construction of two such fine vessels as those under notice. The contract to supply them to the Home Government was only entered into by Mr. Cuthbert at the end of September ; very early in October the keel of the first was laid-and, as we have stated, on the 5th of this present month two were launched, which are now being rapidly rigged. The following is a description of the ves- sels :-Length of keel 77 feet, between per- pendiculars 80 feet, beam 18 feet 6 inches, depth of hold 9 feet 6 inches. The keels are of ironbark ; frames black butt and blue glim ; upper and bilge strakes of hardwood,. the rest of the planking being kauri pine. The who...

ADELAIDE AND GLENELG RAILWAY. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 21 December 1872

ADELAIDE AND GLENELG RAILWAY. IN this issue we give an engraving of the ceremony of laying the first r ail of the City and Glenelg Railway, in the City of Adelaide, performed by his Worship the Mayor. This ! railway, which is being constructed by a pri ! vate company, who obtained legislative I powers to do so last year, is seven miles in length, and connects the metropolis with the I principal watering place in the colony. The j following description of the line is abridged from the South Australian Register :-The length of the line is 6| miles from tho Supreme Court to the junction with the jetty rails at Glenelg. There is a fair promise that this work will make steady way, and that the citizens will, in the course of a few months, be in the possession of a nice and comfortable means of communication between the metropolis and what may be said to be the principal marine resort of the citizens. For many years, the uncomfortable and tedi- ous means of transit to the sea coast has be...

BETHLEHEM LUTHERAN CHURCH, ADELAIDE. THIS handsome edifice was duly opened for divine worship on Sunday, 23rd June last. The style of the building is Gothic, of an early period. The exterior is of dark rubble, with rusticated quoins and dressings of cement. The roofing is of slate, surmounted by a cast-iron cresting.

CHRISTMAS AND THE DEAD. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 21 December 1872

CHRISTMAS AND THE DEAD. " ON Christmas Day, we will shut out from our firesides, nothiug ! " " Not the shadow of a vast city, where the withered leaves are lying.deep? " a voice replies-" not the shadow that darkens the whole globe ? Not the shadow of the City of the Dead ?" Not even that. Of all days in the year, we will turn our faces toward that city upon Christmas Day, and from its silent hosts bring those we loved among us. City of the Dead, in the blessed name wherein we are gathered together at this time, and in the Presence that is here among us according to the promise, we will receive, and not dis- miss, thy people who are dear to us ! Yes. We can look upon these children angels that alight so solemnly, so beautifully among the living children by the fire, and can bear to think how they departed from us. En- tertaining angels unawares, as the Patriarchs did, the playful children are unconscious of their guests ; but we can see them-can see a radiant arm around one favourit...

CHRISTMAS RECIPES. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 21 December 1872

CHRISTMAS RECIPES. ROAST BEEF.-A large sirloin of fifteen pounds requires from three to four hours. Smaller pieces are a proportionately less time in doing. Put a little dripping in the pan to begin with, if you have it. Cover the fat parts with paper, to prevent their doing too much. Baste it with the drippings every fifteen minutes, until nearly done ; then sprinkle a little salt over it, baste it with butter, and dredge it with flour. When done, take it up, and use the drippings for making a brown gravy, by adding hot water and thickening with flour ; add any seasoning liked, as chopped parsley. Have horse- radish, tomato, or mushroom catsup, or Wor- cestershire sauce, for a relish. ROAST TURKEY.-Remove the vent with the knife ; cut a slit from the end of the breast-bone, to take out the entrails, taking care not to break the gall on the liver, or it must be thrown away. Take off the feet, and bruise the bone close to the foot, and draw out the string from the leg ; cut a slit in...

A WORD IN SEASON. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 21 December 1872

A WORD IN SEASON. UNHAPPY-at auy rate, in our opinion-is ! the man who does not thoroughly enjoy at least lioo hearty dinners every Christinas day. « The statement is a bold one. It may, per- haps, excite a little controversy. There is nothing we should like better. We shall have the children on our side at once. Two dinners ! Why it is the very ideal Paradise of youthful Britons, who know not as yet what dyspepsia and indigestion mean. Two dinners-two turkeys-tvjo plum pud- dings-why there can be nothing to equal it-except, perhaps, four clowns ! We speak, however, to those whose appe- tite, though good, is scarcely so all-devouring as a child's ; and we speak as men of a cer- tain age-as men to whom the festivities of Christmas are, partially, a subject of terror and anxiety-as men who have suffered, and may probably suffer again. And yet, fear- lessly, calmly, just a trifle defiantly, if you like, we repeat our assertion : unhappy are those who do not thoroughly enjoy at least ¿w...

A GOSSIP ABOUT CHRISTMAS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 21 December 1872

A GOSSIP ABOUT CHRISTMAS. ALFRED, the wisest and best of English I kings, who first reigned over all England, and who truly deserved the title of "Great," I with a view to the welfare and happiness of ! his subj* cts, e>t;ihlislied a decree that thence- ! forth the holidays should begin with Christ- mas and end with Twelfth Night, or the Epiphany. Although the laws of King Alfred were not as immutable as the laws of the Medea and Persians, his decree has re- mained operative longer than any of theirs ; for even at the present time, when nearly ten centuries have glided by, thousands re- gard the twelve days included within the prescribed limits as, jmr excellence, THE HOLIDAYS. Habit, which soon establishes its authority, and exerts a strong influence over the ways of man in every nation, has doubtless ren- dered the posterity of King Alfred ready to " honour " the custom of the Saxon monarch "in the observance ; " and who have thus become " to the manner born." It was a right go...

SPENCER'S ROYAL POLYTECHNIC. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 21 December 1872

SPENCER'S ROYAL POLYTECHNIC. DURING the Christmas holidays, when peo- ple are more than usually anxious to pass the time in a pleasant and en joyable manner, the question is frequently asked, " Where shall we go ?" To any person who has lately paid a visit to Spencer's Mechanical Museum, the inquiry is one very easily answered. Doubt- less, those who have visited this very in- teresting Exhibition will not bo slow to . in- vite their friends from the country, to enjoy the same intellectual treat. Since the open- ing of his establishment in October, 1870, Mr. Spencer has always been on the alert to secare any mechanical toy or curious inven- tion likely to amuse or instruct the public ; and it is astonishing to note how the objects of interest have increased during the last two years. In addition to those which formed the nucleus of his Exhibition, we may notice some of the most important lately intro- duced. Among these may be noticed the collection of wax figures, numbering about f...

MEMORIAL CONGREGATIONAL CHURCH, HOBART TOWN. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 21 December 1872

MEMORIAL CONGREGATIONAL CHURCH, HOBART TOWN. BETHLEHEM LUTHERAN CHURCH, ADELAIDE. MEMORIAL CONGREGATIONAL . CHURCH, HOBART TOWN. In. this number we give an OD graving, from a photograph by Charles A. Wooley, of the Memorial Congregational Church recently erected in Hobart Town. An inspection of the Interior of the new church must enthral every person with its beautiful and elegant appearance. Not only is lt chaste in design, bnt it is also comfortable, and in summer the congregation will not suffer BO much from the sultriness of the weather, while at Divine service, as in too many of our churches, which appear to have been de« signed on the principle of allowing as little fresh air as possible to get in. It is light, airy, and comfortable; and the architeot has evidently studied the comfort of the as- semblage as much as any other feature in the design. The main part of the building is lighted by two large gasaliers, with reflectors, which throw the light over the greater part of th...

HANGING THE MISTLETOE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 21 December 1872

HANGING THE MISTLETOE. ONE of the preparatory delights to the ac- tual festivities of Christmas-day is the decking of the rooms with evergreens, and hanging up the mistletoe. Although we miss the holly, wherewith to garnish our dwell- ings, in our glorious December, we have abundance of beautiful material to replace its time-honoured prickly leaves and glossy berries. Luxuriant vines and ferns-with almost every variety of flowering shrub and brilliant evergreen-furnish means with which to ornament a fairy palace As to the mistletoe-the plant of so many and such sweet associations-we have that in abundance ; but, even, where its want is supplied by a substitute, we presume that " A kiss 'neath any other shrub would taste as sweet!"
