THE WOOL SALES. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 29 January 1870

THE' "WOOL SALES. Tho last series of sales for tho year commenced on Thursday, tho 11th of November1, and continued uninterruptedly. Considerable animation character ised tho sales at first, and Australian wools for u time made a good advance (especially tho lower classed wools), which was not maintained.

My Holiday Trip to Victoria and Tasmania. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 29 January 1870

My Holiday Trip to Victoria and Tasmania. ; HAVING tho opportunity of a¿few week's relaxation, I determined for once to leave the cares and anxieties of business-to throw myself out of gear-to give the machinery a rest, and to make a holiday tour. I liad never been outside Sydney Heads in my life, and knew ' not what a sea voyage was, except as I had heard it spoken of. I thought of our sister city-Melbourne, whose giant growth, as her people boast, has exceeded ours. I conjured up the beautiful Island of Tasmania, " with its fruits, flowers, sunshine, and pretty girls, as it . had been described to me by a gallant naval officer of Her Majesty's Ship Ohallonger, who had found a wife there. My imagination became alive to see and, know what our neighbours were about, and in what way their enterprise was made availablo that oura was not. I desired to notice thou* social lifo-to judge, in what it i differed from ours--if their engagements were greater, and, in fact, a thousand tilings, ...

Telescopes and Telescopic Vision [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 29 January 1870

Telescopes and Telescopic Vision A GOOD telescope, -with a three and a-half inch aperture, virtually brings the moon within 1,200 miles from the observer. Lord Eosse's telescope brings it within 42 miles, so that objects 270 feet long are discernible. An instrument ten times the power of Hesse's would bring the moon witlfih a mile, at which distance the body of a man might be perceived, and a large building very min utely examined, and its exterior described. Some of our readers may be curious to know why it is, if wo can bring objects upon the moon to within a range of 42 miles, they cannot by the increase of telescopic power, be brought within one mile. The difficulty in the way is the enormous augmentation of power which would be necessary. It would require at least ten times the power of the Boose instrument to bring the moon 40 miles nearer tho earth than it can now be brought ; moreover, this very increase of power defeats one of tho requisite conditions to the end desired-cle...

I HE Asylum at Randwick, IB here given, is.tho result of a movement which was begun in 1852 by a number of gentle men who had observed with sorrow the large number of children left without protec tion or friends to grow up in wretchedness and vice.

Macmillan and Co., London. MR.

Business Habits in Farming. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 29 January 1870

Business Habits in Farming. THE reason why tho knowledge and business habits of farmers are spoken lightly of is because their manage ment is so slipshod. They do not mend the plough as soon as it ts «broken, but wait and take the most precious time of the day in the most important part of the year. Then, when thc plough is mended, tho har ness is found defective. ' Another half-day is lost in repairing that. The merchant who eames strict busi ness habits to a piece of land manages better. Much has been said as to the success of business men turn ing farmers. It has always been the ambition of men to possess land, and it is often the case that the mer chant or other business man, when he accumulates sufficient wealth and "retires" to fanning, succeeds far better tluin those who have been brought up to it. The same qualities that succeed in one pursuit will succeed in the other, and business men, who have had method and energy enough in theil' business transactions to acquire fortune...

The Sham "Colonial Parliament." [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 29 January 1870

j The Sham "Colonial Parliament." TÓRITISH journalists, without having appar ently any very definite idea of the func tions of the colonists who have associated them selves in London for some purposes connected with colonial affairs, have trumpeted their pro ceedings to the world as if they were but fulfill ing the imperative duty of the Press in heralding forth the deeds and decrees of some sovereign power. We are now informed that, in antici pation of the meeting fixed for February, which is designated in some of the papers >" The Colonial Parliament," these returned colonists commenced, on the 24th November, a series of weekly conferences. A council has been appointed : and after some ten or twelve weeks' practice, it may be presumed that this Council will be prepared to come before the "Parliament" with a Ministerial policy. Even before the meeting of this so-called Parliament, those who attend the conferences are styled representa tsves. .And at the first conference the list...

Some of My Early Adventures. ' [BY AN OLD SPORTSMAN.] MY INTERVIEW WITH THE BLACK SWANS OF THE RICHMOND. TRAVELLERS see strange things, and hunters and other sportsmen tell strange tales-from Munchau sen's famous shot at tho deer, which made the cherry-stones germinate and sprout in due time between his 'antlers, to Waterton's ride on the "back of an alligator-though the latter I fully believe, and Captaba Stokes says in his hook that, when survey ing on the north coast of Australia, ho was strongly tempted to try a similar feat. I remember reading somewhere that there is, or was lately, in some part of the United States of America, a place called' Fisher's Uiver-one of those settlements which, . ordaining to move on, or " go-a-head" with the usual restless energy of Yankeedom, romained in much tho same state of primitive simplicity as it was in, two hundred years ago, when a few English settlers mingled with the Dutchmen before located there, and thus formed a very dreary, dull, an...

A meeting was held at Mr. Badgery's Australian Arms, Bombala, on the 19tb instant, for the purpose of initiating matters for the annual races. Tho affair seemed more heartily gone into than haB been the case for some time past, and the meeting is consequently likely to be n successful one. For the Murrumbidgee Turf Club Mares' Produco Stakes, for the year 1871, there were originally thirty eight nominations. Tho stake will be one of 40 sovs with a sweep of 5 sovs each added. The first payment of 1 sov each was made on tho 1st May last.

Turf Troubles. [MY AN ANONYMOUS COXTJUHUTulu] !

Glad to read " Thc Town and Country Journal," pleased with its quality, both without and within, I venture on a contribution ; and, like an old tea-drinking tabby, I choose scandal for my theme True, I am not "clever;" neither, to uso the languago of the tallest turf writers, do I know anything ; but I may point a moral, if I cannot adorn my tale.

THE NOVELIST. HIS ADVENTURES, PERILS, AND ESCAPES. ' OHAPIER XII.-MK. VANE INTERCEPTS A LETTER. Mr. Bichard Vane had one excellent qualification. . He was one, who, having made np his mind to a mat ter, carried it through without delay. He now resolved to'lose no time in urging that the suit he had pro secuted should be happily consummated. He knew well that he had warm supporters in Maud's parents. He had managed with very little difficulty in gaining them to his side. As for Maud herself, he had little care whether she yielded or not. Prostrated as she now was by grief, she could have little strength of mind to resist his importunities. ' ' Yet, " he muttered, "Ishall not urge her too far. So that I can win a condi tional promise, I am safe. And then-and then-" "What dark thoughts crossed his mind as ho spoke these words in a low whisper? For his face grew pale, and a kind of horror came into his eyes. Presently, however, the cold cynical smile came back as he muttered. " Bah, wha...

LADIES' COLUMN. Latest Parisian Fashions. It is no longer a question of mixed costumes, as win ter has sot in with its fogs, cold, and snow, and wadded and warm chesses are becoming indispensable. Heavy and warm materials are much in demand. For full clresB, satin pokins with double face-for example, violet on one one side and lilac on the other-and gros grains with broad stripes of velvet of the same colour and shade, are used in our best houses. Belgian cloth, veloutine, serge, and plain or plaid cachemire are appre ciated in tho rainy season. Velveteen will bo much worn this winter, and makes pretty and seasonable costumes. It will also be used for sashes and trim mings. The colours most in vogue for poplins, as well as cloths, silk, woollens, and foulards, are the faded leaf, myrtle green, Florentine bronze, and deep violet. Black is still very distingue.
