Cultivation of the Vine. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 23 September 1848

Cultivation of the Vine. For two or three years young plantations are tilled with the plough six times in the year ; thrice to open the furrow, and thrice to cover it up. Vineyards are in general ploughed four times; the first labour to loosen the root», done with a plough called cabat, about the 20th of February ; the second, in April, is intended to cover up the roots of the vine, for which purpose they use a peculiar plough called courbe ; the'third, done in May, is like the first; and the fourth, like the second, is done with the courbe, as soon as the third is finished. A weed called chien-dent, or dog's-grass, is very injurious to the vine. In the months of January and February the labourers are employed to examine every row, in order to root it up» In the month of May the useless branches, called bois gourmand, are carefully cut off; but some reserved ibr layers. In July they thin the leaves and small branches, that the air may circulate freely, and that the Verius, or young ...

Miscellanea. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 23 September 1848

Mis c ellanea. CHILDHOOD AND ITS EEMINISCENCES. "We have dubbed the baby feminine. Ba-. byhood seems so, with its beauty, its soft- ness, its helplessness and its waywardness -ladylike in each of its attributes. But look now at that little swaggering urchin, with scarcely more than two of our short years over its head, and it is a boy all over. The reign of dignity has been succeeded by that of impudence. Noise and move- ment are now his chief element. Up the chairs and down again. If you take him up he kicks and struggles ; the more com- fortable you try to make him, the less he likes it ; restlessness is his rest. If he is not talking to you, he is talking to him- self-stamping, hammering, rattling, clat- tering Í whatever can make a noise is play- thing to him. Like another Nero, he wishes «11 the bells in the house had but one string, that he might ring them all together. Nothing but sleep can quiet him, and then, if the truth were known, he dreams of banging doors.! Mischief an...

The Three Glorious Days of London. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 23 September 1848

The Three Glorious Days of London. The alarm of the capital has been pro- digious. The mob behaved so rudely that the po- lice were called out, and the mob-caps, generally attached to them, were kept within doors. On Monday, Mr. Charles Cochrane's Soupers and Minors showed in great force ; but our patriotic friend remained in the kitchen till they were served out in another way, and thus saved the expenses of the day. Consternation was created about two o'clock, P.M., in the vicinity of St. Martin's Workhouse, by a complete revolutionist, surrounded by a vociferous multitude, and threatening never to stop, without strong and forcible interference from the adjoin- ing barracks. It proceeded from a street mountebank, and consisted in his balancing a trencher on the top of a spiral, the bot- tom of which rested on his chin. The ra- pidity of the revolution was wonderful, and the shouts of the crowd terrific. There being, generally, nineteen little boys to one adult in twenty of the mob...

Science and Manufactures. APPLICATION OF CHLOROFORM TO ANIMALS. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 23 September 1848

Science and Manufactures. -«do» -APPLICATION OF CHXOBOFOEM: TO ANIMALS. An interesting and successful experi- ment with this beneficent agent was tried on a lame horse, belonging to Mr Eeid, East Lothian. About two ounces of the ?chloroform were poured on a piece of flan- nel cloth, below which was a sponge, the the whole being placed in a tin case, which was tied over the horse's nose, and sur- rounded with a flannel bag. In three and a-half minutes the animal fell over, and in five minutes was perfectly insensible. In that condition, Mr. Cockburn, veterinary surgeon, Haddington, performed the usu- ally painful operation of cutting the nerves <of sensation in both of its fore feet. On cutting the second, the .poor beast made a slight movement, showing the chloroform was beginning to lose its effect, but a se- cond application of another ounce allowed the other two remaining nerves to be cut without a quiver. In twenty-five minutes from the commencement the animal was aga...

Gutta Percha. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 23 September 1848

Gutta Percha. This substance which has recently been introduced in large quantities into England was first brought under the notice of the Society of Arts in the autumn of 1843. The history of its discovery is thus given by Dr. Montgomerie :-" While at Singa- pore, in 1842,1 on one occasion observed in the hands of a Malayan woodsman, the handle of a parang made of a substance which appeared quite new to me. My cu- riosity was excited, and, on inquiry I found it was made of the Gutta Percha, and that it could be moulded into any form, by simply dipping it into boiling water untú it was heated throughout, when it became plastic as clay, and when cold, regained, unchanged, its original hardness and rigid- ity. I immediately possessed myself of the article, and desired the man to fetch me as much more of it as he could get. On making some experiments with it, I at once discovered that, if procurable in large quantities, it would become extensively useful." Sir W. J. Hooker states the t...

France. By Mectro-telegraph communication, received in London on the 16th May, it was announced that another Republican Revolution, in which the more violent and more warlike party had triumphed, had taken place in Paris on the 15th ; that the members of the Provisional Government had been changed, and several of them im- prisoned. De la Martine, upon whose pacific demonstrations the several powers of Europe had mainly depended for the preservation of peace, had lost all his po- pularity, and the general cry of the nation was for WAH.

Sir,-I am sorry to see the columns of the " Independent Journal " open to the law and ignorant, for slanderous attacks upon the really respectable tradesman ; the character of the present proprietor of the Preemason's Hotel, (although only six months resident in the colony) is, I trust, already too well known, for such a letter as that appearing in your paper of the 23rd inst«, to have the effect of inju- ring him in his business, the object, doubt- less, aimed at by the projectors. I am convinced the young men whose signatures were attached to the letter, are incapable of conceiving such; one to my certain knowledge being unable to write, and the occupation of both is that of labouring men ! and not tradesmen, as they have modes...

The Brig Maggie. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 30 September 1848

The Brig Maggie. "We regret to report that this vessel which arrived on Thursday last from Hong Kong is on shore between Captain Scott's jetty and the remains of the wreck of the Amelia. Before her arrival here she had been for two days in a gale of wind, in which most of her sails were blown to rib- bons ; on its abating she bore up for this port, but on reaching Rottnest the wea- ther again became as bad as ever so that the Püot when he got onboard found that from au adverse wind and bad condition of the sails, it was impossible take her into Owen's Anchorage, and she was therefore anchored in Gage's Roads, and every pos- sible precaution taken for her safety. On Saturday morning Captain Scott perceived the vessel was driving and immediately went on board with another anchor, of 700 cwt., when he found that both cables had parted ; according to our contemporary it would appear that the vessel drove with three anchors down, but such was not the case, she did not drive one inch whil...
