THE CATTLE DISEASE. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Times — 25 February 1857

THE CATTLE DISKAS10. Tiie Coroner of this District and the Government have acted with praiseworthy promptitude, in giving attention to the disease now prevalent amongst the cattle in tho neighbourhood of Mor-' petli. One life Iwe been sacrificed, and it is impossible to .imagine the ravages which this , disease, if unchecked, may commit upon the public health. The Government has referred the Coroner to a medical report of a Commission appointed in 1851 (published in our columns), relating to the epidemic iu stock which then pre vailed, and was known as the Cumberland Cattle Disease. In that instance tho Commissioners, after suggesting various probable causes for the epidemic, admit that they have failed to trace with certainty any one of them as' tho source of the dis ease. -That portion of the report which will bo found most valuable relates to the diseased appear ance of different portions of the carcase in tlio dead and infected beast.

SYDNEY TRADE REPORT. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Times — 25 February 1857

SYDNEY TRADE REPORT. Trade during tlic week has been rather dull, but steady. Fho advices from the home markets of sales of colonial produce have been very oncouraging, and have imparted i firmer tone to our transactions here. There was not much done in the commencement of the week in conse |uence of tho arrival of the mails per European. The conclusion of the November wool sales in London were even hotter than was jzenerally anticipated, and af forded a gratifying proof to our settlors that thoy are still commanding a go 'd market, and at very remunerative rates. Messrs Mort aud Co.'s produce sale of Thursday, ex hibited great firmness. The finer class wools were a shade higher than those sold in the previous week. Hides and nheepskins were also much iu demand, tho former having gone up as high as 2-ls. each. This is unquestionably tho 'highest- -yet obtained. Thero is but little to note in regard to the flour aud grain market*. Our own produce is coming but in very slowly. Tho mil...

The Transatlantic Telegraph. --At a late meeting of the Geographical Society, Mr. Cyrus Field, an Ame rican gentleman connected with the project, gave a gra phic aud interesting sketch of the Transatlantic Tele graph. He described tho survey of the occan from Newfoundland to Ireland, a distance of KHO miles, of which tho utmost depth was about 2070 fathoms, near two and ono-tlurd miles, or 1000 feet short of tho height of tho Jungfrau, The bottom, without a single rock, consists apparently of mere sand, but, examined hy the microscope, is found to bo composed of tropical shells carried on the back of the tl Gulf Weed,'' by the u Gulf Stream,' and deposited in the course of countless ages. Mr. Field held in his hand some fathoms of the cable by which that Broad Atlantic is to bo spanned,— that ocean which, 3(i t years ago; had frightened the super titious companions of Columbus into a mutiny before they had got half across it.

POLICE. To- any one 'well acquainted with the practical working and detail of Police Office Business in country districts, tho Progress Report of the Police Committee presents palpable evidence of want of due consideration on some of its. recom- mendations — in fact, the tone of the various dis cussions when the Police Estimates were under consideration, very clearly conveyed to the public that the House did not placo that perfect confi dence in the report which we believe a little more ?consideration would have ensured it. On a question by which the '.Police Arrange ments throughout the colony were to be funda mentally affected, it appears three witnesses ? only were examined by the Committee, and that the selection of these three must have been made on some incomprehensible principle— a principle which seemed to excludo from the in quiry the subject of the Constitution of Country Benches, and the' hard ships inflicted on the people ?by the mal-administration or non administration ...
