BOOTH & CO.'S STEAM SAW MILLS, BALMAIN. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 21 December 1872

BOOTH & CO.'S STEAM SAW MILLS, BALMAIN. IK our last issue we gave an illustration of this extensive establishment. In reference to the matter accompanying the block-we may state that it contained one or two inac- curacies. Mr. John Booth, the founder of the establishment, has not been connected with it since about three years ago : and the excellent order observable throughout the works is due to the indefatigable exertions of Mr. John Taylor, the resident managing partner. We may also mention that the Mills are situated at the Manning River-and not at the Richmond as stated.

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

LAKE ILLAWARRA. THIS 1 charming sbeet of water is the most picturesque of all our lakes in New South Wales, and is deservedly the resort of tourists when visiting the district, and of dwellers in the neighbourhood when selecting a spot for picnicking. It is situated a few miles to the southward of the sea-port town of Wollongong ; and lies between Dapto and the sea. The lake is about eight or ten miles in length, and abounds in fish of various kinds. Numerous aquatic birds resort to its surface, or make their resting-places among its banks-so that the sportsmen could find no better spot for bagging game during the open season. Our view is taken from one of the moun- tain spurs to the N. W. of the main Illawarra Road.

LETTS, SON, & CO.'S MANUFACTURES AND USEFUL PUBLICATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 21 December 1872

LETTS, SON, & CO.'S MANUFACTURES AND USEFUL PUBLICATIONS. OF all the British manufacturers who send out novelties to Australia, perhaps few have a name more familiar to ns than the above firm. Chiefly notable for their " Diaries," which have, on account of their usefulness, become almost a necessity in our everyday economy, Messrs. Lett, Son, and Co. have not stopped at supplying us with these valuable helps, . but are ever intent on sending to the Antipodes things novel in idea, beautiful in construction, and practically useful. The last novelty to hand is a catalogue of their productions. This is most elegantly got up, the most attractive feature being the orna- mental cover, and Oxford border-ruling round each page. The colours are brilliant and beautiful in the extreme, and well de- serve the name which has been given to the process-" Rainbow Printing." This is an invention patented by Lett, Son, and Co., and the most curious feature of the process is that all the colour...

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

miv jfarnn THE potatoes in No. G are flourishing. We have, with a scarifier, kept the surface well stirred and cleared of weeds, and it has re- paid the trouble over and over, not only in benefit to the growing crop, but to the future condition of the soil. We keep them freely earthed up, which we do with horse and manual labour. Our maize in No. is all we can desire. We gave it plenty of room, which permits us to keep the grubber and scarifier constantly at work ; and, with the earthing, we find it work enough for a couple of men and a pair of horses to attend to it and the potatoes. We encourage the visits of our poultry, and have no reason to repent their rambles over the fields. The moment the potatoes are fit for lifting we shall gather them, and imme- diately plough the land deeply, turning the tops under, and then leave the soil in fallow for wheat. Before ploughing, however, we shall let the pigs have a run over it to glean any stray roots, &c. "Waste not, want not."...

THE MOST PROFITABLE KIND OF WOOL FOR NEW SOUTH WALES. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 21 December 1872

THE MOST PROFITABLE KIND OF WOOL FOR NEW SOUTH WALES. In. breeding sheep as a commercial specula- tion, we ought to consider many circum- stances which would not enter into our calcu- lation if we were only growing wool to win prizes at a Show, or to gain an honourable name as producers of wool of superior quality. The weight and value of the fleece, the weight and quality of the carcase, the demand that exists for wool of various qualities for manufacturing purposes, and how that demand is supplied, must all be I considered if we would breed that sort of sheep which would yield the greatest profit in a given number of years. In the estimate of prices in this article, an average of years has been taken : if we consider the great bulk of New South Wales washed fleece wool to be worth ls. Sd. per lb., that Í3, from ls. 2d. to 2s. 2d.-there being but a small proportion so poor or so good-we shall not be very far wrong ; when it is-below this price, it is ex- ceptionally low ; when abov...

Selected Poetry. DOMESTIC DIFFICULTIES. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 21 December 1872

delecte* $oetn>* DOMESTIC DIFFICULTIES. OH, dear ! what a plague are these servants ! You'd never imagine, I'm sure, Through the whole of my life, Since I.first was a wife, How much 1 have had to endure. * I have never been mean about wages ;. I have even sometimes allowed beer ; ' Yet ifs grievous indeed, I could never succeed Tn keeping a servant a year. The men are. as bad as the females ; They all seem above their condition ; :Oook, nursemaid, or "general," Women and men are all Alike in their selfish ambition. There was Martha, when first I was married, I thought her the best of all girls ; But her first Sunday out Caused a terrible rout, For the minx had her hair done in curls. The next was a useful old soul, Though she didn't like climbing the attics ; -But she soon went away, For one morning she lay In bed groaning o'er " them rheumatics." I Lavinia had seen better days, And I found her an excellent cook ; But think of her coming One night and presuming To beg for the loa...

GETTING UP A PANTOMIME. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 21 December 1872

GETTING UP A PANTOMIME. CHRISTMAS is coming. Cold -weather, snow in the streets, mince-pies, and our little boys and gills home for the holidays. Kind-hearted people's donations for tho poor-boxes. Turkeys from the country ; Goose Clubs in town ; plums and candied citron in the' windows of the grocers' shops ; hot elder wine ; snap-dragon ; bunt the slipper ; and the butchers' and bakers' quarterly bills. The great Anniversary of Humanity gives signs of its approach, and with it the joy- fulness, and unbending, and unstarching of white neckcloths, and unaffected charity, and genial hand-shaking and good fellow- ship, which, once a year at least, dispel the fog of caste and prejudice in this land of England. Christmas is coming, and, in his jovial train come also the Pantomimes. Goodness ! though we know their stories all by heart, how we love those same panto- mimes still ! Though we have seen the same Clowns steal the same sausages, and have been asked by the Pantaloon 'how we were...

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

WOOL ESSAY. Jd EKE we present our readers with two papers, forwarded, among others, for our ESSAY ON "WOOL prize. They are both in- teresting to read, and will also be found in- structive and useful to many breeders, who may not have enjoyed the opportunity of studying the many beneficial topics treated upon, nor the chance of acquiring the inti- mate knowledge of the markets the sheep owners of New South Wales are attempting to supply-aB shewn by the write?, of the first essay, to whom we award this prize^ We do not endorse all that is written, neither'c^o either of these essays come up to our idea of treating the subject, clever as they undoubt- edly are. That they will be found useful, there can be no doubt, and will lead to -yet better knowledge, as to how to improve our wool and mutton we have every hope. There is ample room for it.

Review. Punch Staff Papers. Gordon and Gotch, Sydney. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 21 December 1872

Punch Staff Papers. Gordon and Gotcb, Sydney. THIS long-looked-for volume comes to us at last - making its appearance at quite a suitable season - the merry Christmas time. It comes in all the outward glory of gold and crimson - no effort on the part of the printers, and no expense on that of the publisher, seems to have been spared to render it a   really first-class specimen of colonial   bookwork. Indeed, one of the effects of having such a handsome casket placed in our hands, is an intense desire to get at the jewels wilhin, for we feel assured that they must be both many and brilliant: but, on opening   the jewel case, we find that no experienced   hand has had the selection of the   literary gems, and, as a natural consequence of each contributor using his own judgment, goodly pearls, rough diamonds, and   glittering, but worthless paste - are found side by side. According to the preface, the mistake...

TOWNSHIP OP NASEBY, N.Z. The town of baseby, the entrepôt of the Mount Ida dietriet, of which in this number we give an illaatration, wai established ia the year 1863, and at first occupied a portion of the main fully, some distance above the pre» sent site. The ground, however, upon which the old town was built, proved to be io an rlferoaa that lt, together with the entire ground In the violnlty, was speedily taken np for mining purposes, and worked with great snooess ao far aa the gold deposits were eonoernnd, It mast, however, be borne In mind that the first town of which we speak was taken ap ander minera' rights and busi- ness licences-no part of it being surveyed.

Poetry. PITY FOR POOR POLYNESIANS. ADAPTED FROM COWPER. [For the benefit of those who despise slavery in principle, but who believe in it financially.] [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 21 December 1872

PITY FOR POOR POLYNESIANS. AD APT KD FKOM COWPER. IFor tho benefit of tho*o who despise slavery in princi- ple, but who belWe in it financially.] Video meliora probaque, Deteriora sequor. I OWN I am shock 'cl at the purchase of slaves, And fear those who buy them and sell them are knaves : What I hear of their hardships, their tor- tures, and groans Is almost enough to draw pity from stones. I pity them greatly, hut I must be mum, For how could we do without sugar and rum ? Especially sugar, so needful we see ; What, give up our desserts, our coffee, and tea"? Besides, if we do, the French, Dutch, and Danes, Will heartily thank us, no doubt, for our pains : If we do not buy the poor creatures, they will; And tortures and groans will be multiplied still. If foreigners likewise would give up the trade, Much more in behalf of your wish"might be said ; But, while they get riches by purchasing blacks, Pray tell me why we may not also go snacks. Your scruples and arguments bring to my min...

GORGE OF THE ARROW RIVER. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 21 December 1872

GORGE OF THE ARROW RIVER. The Arrow River, a view of which la here presented, will be remembered by mont persons in New Zealand, as having been the soene of one of the great rashes whloh took Slice in tho early history of gold discovery i this province, now some ten yean age. The river Itself detouofcot Into the level country whioh forms the large hssin of the Wakatípu, by a very narrow and precipitous ravine, which, before the hand of man de- stroyed some of its natural features, must have presented an extraordinary pioture of grandeur and beauty. At the mouth of the gorge is situated Arrowtown, whioh bears none of those evidences of past prosperity and present decline noticeable on some other goldfield townships-but the reverse. Handsome and costly briok warehouses and shops are now in oourse of erection along the main street, supplanting the old weather- board structures, and there are not wanting other signs testifying to the thriving con- dition of the inhabitants generally.

GREAT FIRE IN THE CITY OF BOSTON. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 21 December 1872

GREAT FIRE IN THE CITY OF BOSTON. Another tremendous fire has devas- tated a large portion of one of the principal cities of the United States of America. On 12th November last the tele- graph sped the news to Australia that Boston, a city around whose reminiscences the national pride of our American cousins fondly delights to linger, had become the prey to a conflagration almost as extensive as the " great fire " of 1760. It commenced in that portion of old Boston now called Boston North, bounded by North Centre- street on the south, and by Commercial- street on the north, east, and west. Com- mercial-street abuts upon the wharves, and runs in a half circle, and the point, therefore, where the devastation would be greatest would include a dense mass of busi- ness buildings, and embrace some of the principal wharves in Boston harbor. To illustrate how great the damage may have been it may be mentioned that there are no leas than twenty-three jetties for the shipment of merchandise r...

ALEXANDER AND DIOGENES. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 21 December 1872

ALEXANDER AND DIOGENES. OCR second supplement is taken from the engraving after the celebrated painting by Sir Edwin Laudseer, R.A., who is described as unquestionably the greatest modern painter of animals. In his pictures every dog, every deer, has its own character and its own ex- pression ; and sadness, misery, satisfaction, and drollery, the passions and the feelings, the hopes and the fears, are shewn to belong as much, almost, to the countenance of a dog as of a man. Sentiment and pathos were never before so evoked by representations of animal nature, nor even quiet humour or sharp satire ; and the accompaniments are almost invariably as admirably painted as are the animals. Of course every one is acquainted with the incident which the great artist selected as the basis of the picture we have reproduced. Diogenes, the cynic philosopher, was born at Sinope, a city of Pon tus, 414 B.C., and, being forced to leave his native city for coin- ing false money, went to Athens and app...

WORKS OF THE SYDNEY PAPERMAKING COMPANY, LIVERPOOL. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 21 December 1872

WORKS OF THE SYDNEY PAPER MAKING COMPANY, LIVERPOOL. WE have much pleasure in presenting our readers this month with an engraving of the buildings of the Sydney Paper-making Com- pany, at Liverpool. This extensive and important manufactory, after a long period of inaction, has passed, under very favourable circumstances, into the hands of a company of gentlemen whose names comprise some of the leading capital- ists in the colony-who have long taken an interest in its progress aud welfare, and in whose hands we have no fear of the results. We heartily wish them every success. Before giving a brief description of the various departments of this valuable pro- perty (for which we are indebted to the kindness of Mr. Murray, the managing director), we may be permitted to say (and our opinion is endorsed by that of the most able members of the Legislative Assembly) that we consider this manufac- tory one of the most, if not the most, im- portant in a young colony such as this.

In this number we present our readers within engraving of the interior of the grand hall of the Melbourne Athen seum, which was opened by his Excellency the Governor on the evening of Tuesday, the 20th Novem- ber. The hall is 100 feet long, 49 feet wide, and 38 feet in height. It is fitted with a raised platform, extending across the whole width of the north end. Every care has been taken to secure thorough ventilation, there being numerous apertures for the ad- mission of pure air, while the ornaments above the windows are perforated to allow the escape of the heated atmosphere, and above each sunlight there is a Bhaft 15 feet in diameter, fitted with a revolving cowl. The floor is laid with 2| inch battens, so ar« ranged that not a nail or a nailhole can be seen, and thus the requirements of a ball- room have been met. It is calculated that there will be ample Bitting room for 800 persons on the floor of the hall, and for 150...
