Tahiti. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Courier and Agricultural and General Advertiser — 13 February 1845

Tahiti. The French still held possession of Queen Ponsare's Island, although there were ru mours that intelligence had been received at Tahiti that the French Government had made the necessary concessions to the ill used Queen, who had addressed Bru at, the French Governor, on the subject, but with out avail. The following is a translation of the letter referred to : " I have been informed that the King of the French and his wise counsellors have disapproved of the proceedings of Du Petit Tbouars in seizing my government, my house, and my lands, because my personal flag did not please him. ** The great King of the French and his wise counsellors have also said, that Du Petit Thouars acted without being com manded, and with injustice, and without wisdom, and they have commanded you to restore my goverument and my land. " 1 thought, and wise men also thought, that you would regard the commands of your master the King, and restore quickly lo me my flag, my house, and my land. " But you...

Original Correspondence. To the Editor of the Hawkesbury Courier [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Courier and Agricultural and General Advertiser — 13 February 1845

Original Correspondence. To the Editor of the Hawkesbury Courier SIB,-I imagine from the various corro borative statements that have for some time past appeared in your valuable Coo ni ER, relative to the disease called " Smut" in Wheat, that little doubt can be entertained ' of the efficacy of steeps asa cure for infected seed, notwithstanding the opposition of many whose names stand high in connex ion with Agriculture, and who have written against the use of stiptics. But while the efficacy of this method is admitted, are we to suppose that the Agriculturist has no means for raising grain, that being perfect and healthy, shall not require the trouble and expense of these preparations ? ft has been my opinion-and with what justness perhaps you can determine better than my self-that the generality of Farmers pay too little attention to quality in selecting their seed ; and that to want of care in thin respect much of the diseased state of their crops is to be attributed. The questio...

Splendid Alluvial Flats on the Hawkesbury. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Courier and Agricultural and General Advertiser — 13 February 1845

Splendid Alluvial flats on the Hawkesbury« IN an article under the above head, whtc Appeared in our publication of the 26t September last, we called the attention t our Farming friends to the culture of FLA ( Linum usitatissimum,) for the growl of which there can be no doubt that th strong alluvial land of this district is mos peculiarly adapted. As the period is ap ¿proaching-say the months of March an» April--which is considered to be the bes season for sowing Flax, we do ooit thinl we can do better than call attention to thi circumstance, and at the same time offe a few observations relative to the cultun of the article in question, in this district the land for the prodúc tion of Flax will require little or no manur ing at first, except a good dressing of sharr river sand; but the following points an ?essentially important :--that the soil should be ploughed w trenched deeply ; wei worked and incorporated and thorough^ pulverisad and cleansed ; that before thc seed is sown the l...

Varieties. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Courier and Agricultural and General Advertiser — 20 February 1845

Varieties. A MONEYLESS MAN.-A man with* out money is a body without a soul-a walking death-a spectre that frighten* every one. His countenance is sorrow ful, and his conversation languishing and tedious. If he cali upon an ac quaintance he never finds him at home, and if he opens his mouth to speak he is interrupted every moment, so that he may not have a chance to open his mouth. If he is accused of crime almost every one believes him guilty ! He is avoided like a person infected with disease, & ¡6 regarded as an incum brance to the earth. Want wakes him up in the morning, and misery eccom panics him to his bed at night. The ladies discover that he is an awkward booby; landlords believe that he lives upon air, and if he wants anything from a tradesman he is asked for cash before delivery.-Stewart.

Dew. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Courier and Agricultural and General Advertiser — 20 February 1845

Dew.

All bodies on the surface of the earth radiate, o throw out rays of heat in straight linet -every warmer body to every colder ; and the entire surface is itself continu ally sending ray« upwards through th* clear air into free space. Thus, on UH earth's surface, all bodies strive, as ii were, after an equal temperature (an equilibrium of heat), while the surface, as a whole, tends gradually towards ti cooler state. But while the sun shines, this cooling will not take place, for the earth then receives in general more heat than it gives olF ; and if the clear sk> be shutout by a canopy of clouds, these will arrest and again throw back a por tio...

Speedy Production of Milk. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Courier and Agricultural and General Advertiser — 20 February 1845

Speedy Production of Milk. M. Dichost.a Russian chemist, propo's ed the following plan for the preservation and extemporaneous preparation of milk - He evaporates newly drawn milk at a gentle heat, until it is all drawn to a state of fine powder. Il is then put into small glass bottles which are completely filled and hermetically sealed with ground glass stoppers. A small quan tity of the powder thus obtained dissolv ed tu an appropriate quantity of waler, affords on the instant a milk of very good quality. The powder will remain good for a great length of lime. [We recommend the above recipe for he preservation of milk to all masters of vessels and tq¿ passengers proceeding to sea, particularly in ships in which no milch cows or goats are kept ; and il might prove serviceable likewise lo per sons taking long journeys in the bush. When cream can be procured we would recommend its being used in preference to milk.-ED. HAWKESBURY COURIER.]
