A Meteorite. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 22 October 1886

A meteorite. A meteokite (says the Melbourne Age) was recently dug up on the Langwarrin estate, owing to the ploughing up of ground for a market garden there, and having been reported on by Mr. Reginald Murray, the- Government Geologist, during a visit by him to the estate, .as being a meteorite, aud of ..value to science for its rarity, &c., the Cosmopolitan Land Banking Company (owning the property) offered to make a present of it to the Technological Museum. The offer being accepted, it was forwarded to town by rail, and is now located at the museum. The mass, which appears to be nearly all solid iron, measures about three feet in diameter, and is of immense weight. It took, several men and horses to detach it from the ground, and getting it to a dray for conveyance to the Frankston , station was a work of no mean dimensions.

The Northern Territory. If the Kimberly district has for the present proved a failure, some hope .has been raised as respects the northern half of South Australiaby the very favourable report just made by tho JR.ov. J. E. Tenison- Woods. This gentleman is a very competent^ geologist,' and has been a great traveller, and an observant, one, and he says ..unhesitatingly that the Northern Territory of South Australia is exceptionally rich in minerals. He thinks it is more so than any other part of . Australia of tho same size. The climate is warm, and those who have hitherto attempted to open out mines ihave had to contend with the labour difficulty. Mr. Woods does not say how lie thinks the difficulty is to be got over, but he disapproves of allowing the Chinese:to work claims. The minerals which he has proved to exist, are gold, silver, copper, lead, and tin. When the right method of working has been discovered, ' he -believes that Arnheim's Land will become one of the great mining ce...

First Ciold.l'ouud iu Australia. Mr. Thomas Tippm Smith of the G-lebe, writes to the Sydney Morning Herald enclosing copies of letters dated June 9, 1849, and Juno 6, 1851, which relate to the finding of gold in Bathurst in 1848 by a mineralogist named William Tipple Smith, the father of the correspondent. The communications referred to are those which passed between the Hon. E. Deas Thompson (then Colonial Secretary) and Mr. W. T. Smith.

The Pig in the Dairy. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 29 October 1886

The l'iic !?- tbe Dairy. Tiie pig is almost as much a part of the dairy as the cow is. The cow is at one cud (the first), and the pig at the other. They occupy the two extremes. The cow furnishes the supplies, and the pig turns the tailings, so to speak, into meat and money. There would be a great waste in many cases without it. Of coursc the sour and skimmed milk, including the buttermilk, could be turned into veal, beef, or more cows, bnt to consume all the refuse of the dairy, accompanied with that of the kitchen, would require the raising of more calves than could be turned into profit. But a few pigs, with little care, if given clean quarters and a nice ran of grass or clover, will turn all the refuse of both into the best of pork, for nothing makes better pork than milk, grass, and the clean kitchen refuse, with a little corn meal to finish up with. Pigs will thrive on this kind of, food, if they will on anything. It furnishes just about variety enough, and gives them great sa...
