PRACTICE OF IRRIGATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 29 July 1845

TKACTICE OP IIUIIGATION. TUE first operation on the intended meadow is, to ftee it thoroughly of water hy drain- ing. If springs exist, they should he cut off hy drains of sufficient depth to reach thc source cf injury. But, in addition to this, the land, if the soil is clnycy, or rests upon a tenacious subsoil, should he effectually furrow-tîraincd, so ns to afford arcady egress to the water under ground. The land is then to be levelled and otherwise prepared. If it is ilrcndy in old turf, it will bc well to pnro ort" tho sward with the spade, and after having dug and prepared the ground, to re- place the turf. In this manner the meadow will bc ready for the reception of the water, ns soon ns it is formed. But should there he no turf upon the ground, or should this turf he filled with useless or innutritious plants, the land should be thoroughly worked, levcll.il» and otherwise prepared, mid then sown with the suitable grnss-seeds. These grass-seeds may he sown in autumn. Wc cannot...

MAXFIELDS CASE. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 29 July 1845

MAXFIELDS CASE. WE were in error, it seems, in imputing to thc Chief Justice the sentence passed upon Maxfield ; it was the Puisné Judge who sat   on the trial of that culprit. If we are not much concerned about a mistake for which our reporter is responsible, we must explain that when we read, " Iiis Honor" said so nul so, without which of their Honors being specified, wc thought it only natural to con- clude that it was Judge Teddcr, who in 1837 or 1838 passed n somewhat similar sentence upon a man who was executed on thc road between Launceston and Perth , and never dreamed that it could be Judge Montagu, the son of that Basil Montagu, who has spent the best portion of a long life in combating thc principles involved in the recommendation to the Executive in thc case of Maxfield. We cannot, certainly, bind the son to the opinions of thc pnrent ; but wo startle when we find them so diame- trically contradicted, and we are curious to find a reason for tho opposition, w...
