REARING DUCKS. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 29 January 1870

BEARING DUCKS. The following are extracts from an article communi cated to the Canada Farmer by Mr. J. C. Cooxier, of Limerick. " Abundantly fed and the eggs removed, the duck lays upwards of 100 eggs, but requires solititude to hatch, and is best supplanted by the lien, which can be had earlier and managed more easily. Nine eggs will suffice for a i sitting. Some persons have a space for a few hen eggs i in the clutch, putting them down eight days later, i They affirm that the little ones are taught better manners by their more astute foster brethren. As tho ¡ eggs of the duck are more liable ,to a chill during in j cubation than those of other fowl, they should be : covered with a cloth while the bird is feeding. "When the young issue forth, at the end of twenty-eight or thirty days, they can be fed for the first week on woims, chopped, rough crumbled bread, steeped in milk, then barley or Indian meal ; and when about three weeks old, nettles or chopped vegetables may be added at ...

The late Extraordinary Hailstorm at Parramatta. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 29 January 1870

The late Extraordinary Hailstorm at Parramatta. ! THE vecont calamity at Parramatta-, caused by a'hail storm which only lasted fifteon minutes ; but which destroyed more property than any visitation" of the sort ever before known in the colony.-and brought destruction to a large number of families, is worthy of especial notice. The hailstones that descended moro resembled pieces of road metal in size, shape, and hardness, than anything else they could be likened to. They were, in many instances; fully the size of hens' eggs. Few houses upon whioh they descended had a pane of glass left whole. Some of the windows in the shops were so .assailed that all the goods had to bo removed, and tho shutters put up ; and from the roofs of houses tho hail rolled off and lay in large heaps around for hours afterwards. But the greatest destruction they caused was to the gardens and or- > chards, of which so many are cultivated in tho vioinity, and form the chief means of subsistance to a majori...

Improvement in Machinery for Husking Corn. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 29 January 1870

Improvement in Machinery for Husking Corn. MACHINEKV for husking corn has been attempted foi years, but the valions devices prove to have been more or less imperfect. Some of them only partially husk the ear, some partially shell the com from the cob, and others waste the husk, now become a valuable commodity in the United States and other countries, and may be made so hi Kew South "Wales, not only for filling beds', mattresses, and cushions, but for manu facturing into paper, cloth, and other fibrous sub stances. The machine shown in thc engraving is intended to obviate the difficulties experienced in connection with the old plana, lt may be run by hand or power, the hand machine having a capacity of twenty-five bushels per hour, and the power machine of from forty to sixty bushels. Thc machine is simple in construction, and requires but little power to drive it. Power is applied to the wheel A, on the axis of a Huted iron roller, called the picker, which carries, on the other end ...

Curing Green Hay. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 29 January 1870

'. Curing Green Hay. HAY, whether clover, oaten, or lucerne, may be cut and / well saved when quite green, provided there is no rain or dew on it, The natural juices of the grass, however ? abundant, will offer no obstacle to curing it; but if half-curéd or dry hoy, should get wet and then be stacked or piled away .without being thoroughly dried, ? ~it will sweat and heat and become greatly damaged. It is an excellent plan to place layers of dry straw with hay not sufficiently dry to ensure its not heating. And for damp or green hay, especial y clover hay, there is nothing like placing it in a tight born or other build ing, instead of in an open stack. If placed in a build ing with the air excluded, hay may feraient, and the fennentation will rob it of some of its strength-giving . qualities; but it will not heat to any dangerous extent, and the starchy elements will not be much affected.. In that state it will be readily eaten in the winter by young or hungry animals ; but it will ...

This tuft jÁl a budding of the pith of the stem itself into a spec¡¿í of ribless leaves folded together like the core'oj I heart cabbage ; consequently, it ean only bo pro; ' cured for the table at the cost of destroying the tref - oil which it grows ; for the tree dies immediately 0{ - tho removal of the cabbage tuft.

The News by the Mail. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 29 January 1870

The News by the Mail. THE arrival of tho Avoca supplies us with our European papers to Decem ber 3rd, from which we are able to collect much explanatory information in connection with the heads of intelligence before announced by telegraph. . Com mencing with the news : from the United Kingdom, it appears that the whole of the month of November was a busy time ior the sight-seers and attendants at public ceremonials in the metropolis. The details of the Queen's visit to the city on the occasion of the open ing of Blackfriars Bridge and the Holborn Viaduct, satisfactorily show that the report telegraphed by last mail of the cold ness of her Majesty's reception was utterly erroneous, and was probably circulated to serve a purpose. The report of the proceed ings says-" In no capital could royalty be received with warmer or more universal dé monstrations," and in conclusion states that " her Majesty left the city amidst the hearty congratulations of the vast body of people assembled to ...

Proposed Federation of Great Britain and her Colonies. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 29 January 1870

Proposed Federation of Great Bri tain and lier Colonies. A MONGST the numerous projects for the fu ture management of colonial affairs which have been broached during the recent discus sions on that subject in England, there is one of a character which at least commands some atten tion, and of the details of which we are in formed in the papers which arrived by the English mail on Sunday. The grand idea of a perfect federation of one great British empire comprising the United Kingdom and the whole of the British posessions with the exception of India and the mere naval and military stations, had been started before; and although we believe the general opinion throughout these colonies, so far as regards what will really occur, to be rather in favour of the belief that the colonial dependencies must become separate and independent States, yet there was some thing irresistibly attractive in the contempla tion of a Confederacy uniting all British interests, uniform in its system of Gov...

Future Events. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 29 January 1870

Future Events. BY OLD CALABAH. I FIRST, we shall have Homebush, for which at present only ono event is closed, viz., tho Trial Stakes for two year olds, three quaiters of a mile, which has an entry of sixteen, whicli is not quite up to the mark of former years j but, as all our two years old races are in tho sams condition, it seems that tho statement made by Mr. Buchan Thomson, at the annual meeting of the A. J. Ci, that " the falling off in these (races) may, in a great measuro, be accounted for by the very un favourable nature of the stason when these yearlings were foals." is equally applicable to the year olds. Of course any attempt to pick the winner of these untried youngsters at present would be folly, although "Pun dit," after wading through interminable pedigrees, and writing numberless columns of very " dry" reading in support of his opinion, decides that Ely, or Eli (I do not know which is correct, as it is spelt both ways in the entries), by Yelverton out of Valletta, i...

¡Proposed Telegraphic Reductions. DEPUTATION'TO THE POSTJIASTER-GENERAL.-A depu tation comprising Messrs. J. L. Montefiore (chairman), Mr. J. S. "Willis (deputy chairman), Mr. B. Molineaux, and Mr. E.

C. Cracknell), and Mr. S. H. Lambton ; (Secretary to the General Post Office) were also in attendance. Mr. J. L. Montefiore said they came as a deputation from the Chamber of Commerce to request tho Government to take into consideration tho advisability of reducing the telegraph rates, and tho expediency of following in the path of other colonies in establishing a uniform scale of charges. He might mention that such a course had been adopted in and for the colonies of Victoria, South Australia, and Tasmania, and a...

SMUGGLING TOBACCO.-A man named George Solvey ono of tho stewards employed on board, tho Lady Young, was arrested at Brisbane, on tho 19th instant, under a warrant, charged with smuggling tobacco from that vessel.

Anothor person in business in the city is believed fcohavo employed him this transaction. Thc recent show of tho East Moreton Agricultural Association (Queensland) has given riBO to considerable comment. It is considered that in many products tho Ipswich Exhibition far exceeded it-particularly in bottled peaches, that scorned at tho latter placo as inviting as thoso imported from tho South of Franco; also dried peaches, lemons, orangos and dried bananas.

Facts for Farmers. LIME will destroy sorrel. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 29 January 1870

Facts for Farmers. LIME will destroy sorrel. A GOOD thing to raise : the mortgage from your farm. SELLING lean stock from a farm marks the poor far mer and keeps his farm poor. LOOK to your fences. Defence of the crops is often staked on a single post. CASTOR OIL is recommended for chicken cholera. Dose-a dessert spoonful to a table spoonful twice a day. j GAS TAR mingled with whitewash, applied to the in terior of a hen-house, at the rate of ono gill to a pailful, it is said will disperse the lice. ONIONS are capital food for cattle infected with lice. They give tone to the stomach and are capital in hot weather. Half a peck given at noon, once a day, will very soon rid the animals of them. THERE is a Buckeye mowing-machine, belonging to a New Jersey farmer, that within the year has cut 4000 acres of grass and grain with an expense for repairs of 20 dollars. THE Clinton (Louisiana) Democrat' states that a resi dent of that place gathers a sufficient quantity of tea leaves from tho ...

Intemperance in Medical Men. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 29 January 1870

Intemperance in Medical Men. X>I!C*ENT Victorian papers relate an extreme instunce'of a grave social misfortune which has not'been unfrequent in these'colonies-the tenacious settlement in a district of a medical practitioner with the glaring disqualification attached to him of habitual intemperance. According to these journals, a person desoribed as " a notorious drunkard'' has for some years past been residing as a medical practitioner in one of the country distriots of "Victoria. It must have been obvious to the whole district, if the description now given of him is true, that he was totally unfit to be entrusted with the caro of patients, whose life must ' sometimes depend on the steadi ness of his hand and the clearness of his brain. It might be supposed that a medical man who betrayed the incapacity which intoxication had entailed on him would not succeed in winning the confidence of any intelligent person-that no one would place his own life, or the life of any member of hi...
