Weather, Crops, Stock Movements, and Pastoral Matters. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 29 January 1870

Weather, Crops, Stock Movements, and Pastoral Matters. c Tho weather, although some rain has fallen in tho Country districts, remains oppressively hot, and a suc cession of the thunderstorms peculiar to the Australian Innato would be regarded as a great and seasonable blessing, especially in tho Braidwood district, from whence private advices inform us that the grasshopper may bo seen in myriads, dostroying all before thom. On tho mountain district of Monaro this season but comparatively fow stock has boon depastured, and the countiy is looking magnificently. About Kiandra tho grass is reported knee doop. Tho local organ reports ,tho passage of a fine Jot of fat sheep through Cowra, cn route for Goulburn. It was possible to pick out scores of sheep that would go from 90 to 100 lbs., if not over. Those sheep were from Messrs. Rolfe Brothers' Iron mougio Station, Bobundarah. .About 1100 fat sheep from Mr. Grahame's stations 'also passed through Cooina for Goulburn during the early par...

COMMERCIAL REPORT. By tho arrival of the R.M.S. Avoca, on Friday morn ing Inst, we were placed in possession of our December novices to the 3rd, and further telegraphic intelligence to tho 10th of the same month. Although tho exports to tho colonies show a con siderable increase on those of tho preceding month, the n0ws has nV>t had any very unfavourable effect on this market, as it is known that it has been mainly caused by season shipments. Continued favourable reports respecting tho wool market has also had a good effect upon buyers here. The business of the past month has only been on a moderate scale, os the Ohristmas and Yew Near's recess interfered with transactions to a considerable extent ; tho trade, however, have boon buying more freoly during the last few days, and the auction rooms have been moderately well attended.

* THE KITCHEN GARDEN. Tho rofroshlng rain which foll last Friday, ana whicn wi renewed on the 10th instant, will have done incalculab: . service to all kinds of vegetation. Tho intense heat whic immediately preceded it had begun to make great havo amongst standing and growing crops.

Self-help for Farmers and Fruitgrowers. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 29 January 1870

Self-help for Farmers and Fruitgrowers. THE precarious condition of the farmers! and fruitgrowers in this colony makes some practical step on their part for self preservation needful. Exposure to the vicissi tudes of an uncertain climate, and the ravages of the earth's scavengers, keep them and their products continually in danger. The thousands of pounds beaten down to earth by the late hailstorm, leaving destitute a numerous class of industrious fruitgrowers, forces the consideration of this matter into notice. The frequent and urgent applications to the Government for help during su h visitations threaten to transform the Colonial Secretary's department into an Agricultural Insurance Office, and will soon render the appointment of a Minister for a new depart ment necessary. Is it not possible to meet these cases in some other way ? Is it not possible for those who are liable to such visita tions to create an insurance association among themselves, so that during years of prosperi...

Economy in Motive Power [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 29 January 1870

Economy in Motive Power THE paper read by Mr. Eaton, of Nottingham, in section G of the Brittish Association for the Advancement of Science, " On certain Economical Improvements in ob taining Motive Power, " gave an interesting account of the effects produced by pumping air into the bottom of the water space in a steam boiler, the air being first heated on its way by the exhausted steam and the waste gasses of the smoke box and funnel to a temperature of from 500 to OOO deg. Farenkeit. In the boiler this heated ah- becomes finely divided and diffused through the water. The water is thus deprived of its cohesion, and prepared for more free ebullition, while the air, as it rises above the water, becomes saturated by steam, and the two together pass on to their work in tho cylinder. Recent tests show a gain of over 40 per cent, in work done by an engine when supplied only -with steam. The effect of the aeration is tantamount to that of the intro duction of an incalculable number of tub...

Invention in Telegraphy. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 29 January 1870

Invention in Telegraphy. ON Wednesday, 13th January, Mr. Peter Herbert, an overseer in the boot and shoe making department in Berrima gaol, exhibited at Mr. John Clarke's Assembly Booms, Colonnade, Elizabeth-street, an invention in telegraphy, which he had wrought out in his leisure hours during the last two years. Mr. E. C. Cracknell, Superintendent of Telegraphs, Mr. John Rae-Under Secretary for Public Works, Mr. Jamas Barnel, Colonial Architect, the Hon. John M'Farlane, M.D., and other gentlemen were present and examined the invention. It is an instrument designed to enable any person, without previous training, to send a telegraphic mes sage, by merely pressing successively the letters of the words intended to be transmitted. Under the system now in use, no one can send a message by the electric telegraph but one who is familiar with the uso of the cypher, and alphabet formed by a succession' of dots and dashes, so arranged as to represent the several letters. And to uso this ar...

SCIENCE—INVENTION— CONSTRUCTION. Scientific Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 29 January 1870

SCIENCE-INVENTION CONSTBUCTION. Scientific Notes. ACCORDING to the Quarterly Journal of Science, Professor Loomis shows that Mr. Tebbutt's ob observations of the variations of the mysterious star Eta. Argus may be explained by assigning to the star a period of variation of sixty-seven years, instead of the period of forty-six years obtained by Professor "Wolf. According to the best observations during the past century, the star has no less than three distinct maxima of splendour-two nearly equal and corresponding to a brightness, exceeding that of all stars but Canopus and Serius, the other corresponding to the least bril liance of a first magnitude star. In a communication recently read before the Royal Astronomical Society of London, air. Browning, the now famous optician, describes a sun spot which was visible on the 14th of March, 18C9, and which measured from north to south 14,400 miles, and from west to east 19,000 miles. There were three unequal nuclei in the umbra arranged n...

An Unpublished Poem of Byron. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 29 January 1870

An Unpublished Poem of Byron. Tho writer of tho articlo in thc curront number of tho Quarterly Review on thc " Byron Mystory " has quoted (not quito corroctly) tho first stanza of an un published pioco which ho says was written by tho poot " in tho autumn of 1814, just before tho second proposal to Bliss Milbanko," and after "ho had boen thrown over by Lady F. "VV. W. in favour of an illus trious warrior." By tho courtesy of tho present owners of Lord Byron's autograph copy (Lady Fran ces V. Harcourt), wc {Pall Mall Gazette) aro enabled to present our readers with a correct version of tho whole pioco, which has intrinsic merits independent of tho special interest which at tliis juncture attaches to everything writton by tho much-assailed poet : Go triumph securely, tho treacherous vow Thou ha3t broken, / keep but too faithfully now, But never again shalt thou bo to my heart What thou wert, what I fear for a moment thou art.

How to Economise Bones. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 29 January 1870

How to Economise Bones. " I IT frequently happens in country districts that thou sands of pounds weight of old horse and cattle bones may be gathered up, but people do not know how to pulverize or prepare them to apply them to use. ? To buy a mill suitable to crash them the outlay would, of course, be too considerable. One .way would be to set a large caldron or kettle in the ground, and fix over it a cannon ball or other heavy round weight, suspended between two springy saplings, so that the ball will be lifted two or three feet after each stroke. Two boys can work the pestle. Break up the bones with a sledge-hammer, and then pound them in this big mortar. Tliis will make a fertilizer that will act slowly, but its effects on the land will be seen for many year». But if a quick acting manure is wanted, the better way will be to convert the bones into a super phosphate. For tins purpose dig a shallow dish-shaped pit, and line it with clay. Pack the bones in snugly, and pour about the...

Seedling and Grafted Potatoes. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 29 January 1870

Seedling and Grafted Potatoes. AT the last meeting of the Royal Horticultural Society, Mr. Penn, of the Rectory, Woodstock, showed a very extensive collection of potatoes, many of them raised by himself, and some of them iUustrating very inter esting points in potato culture. Many of the varieties consisted of the produce of cross-fertilisation, which in one case was remarkably curious : Early Emperor, a large red kind was the male, and Fenn's Onwards, ¡ white, the female parent. A cross between these pro- j duced thiity-six distinct varieties of the most diverse '? description. The most curious of these was a very late kind, the top not appearing till June, and the tubers of which had degenerated to a small round mottled form, and were not distinguishable from those of a wild sort received by the society from Peru. The produce of another cross between Hogg's Early Coldstream, male, and Shutford Seedling Kidneys, female, consisted of twenty-four varieties of rounds and kidneys. The ...

Poultry Keeping. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 29 January 1870

Poultry Keeping. - IT is a popular idea rliat poultry kept especially for profit, will yield a loss. There never was a greater error. Poultry, properly managed ; economically fed ; and judiciously selected, so far from proving a loss to those who enter upon the speculation, must prove of very profit. In Europe-in all countries save England poultry fanning is carried on extensively. It is a special department, necessitating special study, and at tention. Like every other enterprise depending upon the production of Gods creatures for profit, it does not fail, save through the ignorance or neglect of those who embark in it. Whence come the enormous quantities of poultry and eggs which are consumed in this city '( A great pro portion comes from the small farmers adjacent to Sydney, and who keep' poultry, without paying special attention to what they find, is, unattended to, a very profitable portion'of their productions. But not an un considerable quantity of eggs and poultry, is brough...
