HUNTING THE DEVIL-FISH. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 1 February 1868

HXmTING THE DEVIL-FISH. Suddenly his broad black back was lifted above the water directly before our bow., ' For ward 1' The oarsmen bend to the stroke, but before we could gain pur distance his tail flea up, and he is plunging downward for his depths. I could not resist— -I pitched my harpoon from1 tlie distance of full 30 -feet. It went whizzing through the air, and cleaved the water just beneath the spot where the fish had disappeared. My companions in our .consort (who haA now approached within 50 yards) observed the staff, quiver for a second before it disappeared be neath the surface of the water. This was unob served by myself, and I was drawing in my line to prepare for a new throw, when ho ! the line stopped short 1 'Is it ppssible ! I have him— the de\il-fi£h is struck !'

RECLAMATION OF SANDHILLS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 1 February 1868

RECLA3tfA.TIOK OF SAlTBfiiLLS. The reclamation of sandhills is a problem in agriculture well worth : the most : attentive consideration, ;. as, not withstanding all other Mnds of fipu— the stony ?_ rock or the stifiest clay— have been, brought into ; cultivation, sandy heaths and upland sandy wastes by the sea, as well as those more inland, seem- to con tinue as wastes still. We are constantly hearing of plants capable of growing good crops in the veriest sand ; such have been lupins, gorse orfurze, ladies* fingers, : and others. Still little of the sandy waste is reclaimed, and such places as Bagshot, Aldershot, the Sttrrey highlands,; and much indeed of the tertiary sands, besides those of more recent date, are left in the undisturbed possession of the .gorse \ and ling. If we enquire ?into the causes of 'this, we shall .soon find that for the most part 'two elements are wanting for their amelioration, namely, moisture and calcareous matter. ; v.- r- ,,L_ \ We have on our own farm...

GREEN PLANTS AS MANURES. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 1 February 1868

GREEN PLANTS AS MANURES. The ploughing under and covering in the laud of the crops of green juicy plants to act as a manure is a practice of the ancient Romans, and i3 yet followed in Italy and other parts of Europe. This mode of fertilising suits warm countries, where vegetation is rapid and luxuriant ; in our colder latitude, where eulmiferoiis productions are more the object of culti vation, the . utility of the practice has not yet - appeared; The plants used for that purposeareof the leguminous order— tares, retches, clovers, peas, buckwheat, and 3purry ; and in Italy the harvest is early, and the' crop is removed in time sufficient bo allow the maturity of the green plants. Dor climate does not allow of such suc sessions, and a crop, of any kind must be unprofitable that yields, in return only what it has extracted, and leaves theland as before in point of fertility. In order fco apply the practice profitably, a very full crop must be supplied, and land that will produce a ful...

LONGING. BY JAMES BTJSSELE. LOWELL. ' Of *aU the myriad moods of mind That through the soul come thronging, Which 'one 'was e'er so dear, so kind, So beautiful as Longing ?? : The thing we long for, that we are For one transcendant moment, Before the Present poor and bare Can make its sneering comment. StiH, through our paltry stir and strife, Glows down the wished Ideal, -, . And Longing moulds far clay what Life : Carves in the marble Real : To let the new life in, we know Desire must ope the portal ; 'Perhaps the longing to be so Helps make the soul immortal.

Our lives must climb from hope to hope - .And realise bur longing. Ah ! let us hope that to our praise ?, Good God not'only reckons -.-.

INTERCOLONIAL COMMERCIAL. VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 1 February 1868

INTEECOLONIAL COMMERCIAL. VICTORIA. FFrom our Special Reporter.! The pist week has not been characterised by any great activity in the import markets. The breadstnffs market remains quiet, nothing beyond supplying the requirements of the trade being done. Quotations remain the same, namely — £15 to £15 10s. per ton for Victorian, £13 10s. for Tasmanian, and £19 in bond for Adelaide best brands. Wheat is in fair demand. but there is not much offering, an impression prevailing that prices must advance. For old Victorian 6s. 9d. to 7s. is freely given, whilst 6s. 3d. to 6s. 6d, has been given for new. Re ports from some districts are highly satisfactory as to the yield of the harvest. Amongst these is a favorable report from the Mansfield district, where the crops are taid to have turned out uncommonly welL A speculative feeling in candles at the end of last week led to some rather extensive transactions, and on Friday over 10,000 boxes changed hands at prices which were not disclosed,...
