LIFE-SAVING RAFT. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 15 December 1866
LIFE-sAVINO RAFrt.--SOue interesting experi.. meonts have been conducted at Southampton with a newly invented lifo raft, designed for the saving of life from shipwreck at sea, The apparatus, which is called " Pcrry's Life-saving Raft," when stowed on board occupies only a spce of eightcen inches in diametor by eleven feet long, (Lnd weighs about 400 pounds; but when it has been prepared for use, an operation which occupies six minutos, it has a buoyant capacity of 8000 pounds, and a deck surface for passengers of 180 square feet. Thus it is easy of carriagneo by a ship, from whieh the inventors say it can easily be launched, without possibility of being capsized or stove in under any combination of circumnstances; its use fulness in landing through a surf or breakers is also mnaintained an exceeding any other means. The experiments, so far as they h:ave gone, are said to be satisfactory. The following 1is a de. scription of the raft:-It is compo.ed of two or more aLir-tighIt cylinde...

BALLAN. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 15 December 1866
BALLAN. (FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT.) PEnTIAPS there is no greater feat a man can perform, and certainly none more wise and profitable when accomplished, than that of seeing beyond the point of his proboscis, Why it is that the majority of men never see further than the extremity of that organ, I know not. As an illustration of this shl;ort. sightedness, in No. 4, of the Gucndial there appeared a leading article, It; was intended for a thunderer, but the intellectual clouds were too heavy and too watery, so the affair didn't come off. The wlriter says, in speaking of Ballan-" It is not out of place here to disabuse our Blackwood correspondent's mind from the expression [should be,impression]--that the Council have been expending money collected there for forming and kerbing the streets of Ballau. They have not done so, nor are they likely - to pitch and kerb Ballan streets for some time to come, or to execute the embellish. ments in the style desired by one of the Ballan visionary refor...
THE Bacchus Marsh Express. SATURDAY, DECEMBER 15, 1866. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 15 December 1866
sATiURDAY DEOEMBER 15, 186o. TuHE exen118ionof lthe 42nd section of the Amendipg Land Acit (or what is equivalent to it) as pronungated by the. Minister of Lands the other day, has caused great excitement in every parl; of the coldny. Anud if such an extension of the free-selection principle could be legally, carried out, it would meet with the approval of nine-tenths of tile people of this coloiiy, there cannot be a single doubt, It appea|s, however, that, until Parliament neetsy the intentions of thl, Minlister of Lands will .not be carried into effect, This determninatiou will,: no doubt, cause considerable disappointment to manny who were contumplating tialtking up 640 acres of' land; but, upon the whole, we think that, if eventheMinister of Lauds hand tlie power to throw all the Crown latids of the colony open in the way he proposed, ift would be as well to olbtliii ,the, sanction of Parliament .bufore malking such a radical change, For, however.safeb such a power might be. in ...

BLACKWOOD MINING NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 15 December 1866
BLACKWOOD MINING NEWS. (FROM A CORRESPONDENT.) The True Blue have crushed 75 tons which yielded 82 ounces of melted gold. The Canadian, Nuggety Gully, crushed 19 tons, which gave upwards of 4 ounces of gold. The Grace Egerton has again turned out well, and the prospects of this company are rapidly improving. All the reefs are in full work, and on the whole, mining never looked better at Barry's Reef and its vicinity. A good reef has been reported to have been struck on the Bald Hill, Golden Point, which it is hoped may again revive the palmy days of that neighbourhood. There seems to be an unusual amount of energy at present displayed in prospecting new lines of reefs, and taking up old and abandoned claims, many of which, such as the Frenchman's, Cana- dian, and others will pay well, with the application of efficient and practical labour together with good machinery.
BLACKWOOD. 12th December, 1866. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 15 December 1866
BLACKWOOD, (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) 12th December, 1866. MINING NOTES are valuable, inasmuch as they tend to indicate the prosperity, or otherwise, of joint-stock companies. They also, in a great measure, regulate the prices of mining shares in the market, and serve as guides to those who buy and sell. In such a place as Ballarat they may be said to be indispensable; for, in their absence, share-dealing would become such a game of hazard, that none but the most speculative would invest their capital in the dark. Accurate and reliable intelligence, therefore, is of the utmost consequence to the investor, who naturally, and to a greapt extent, bases his calculations upon its veracity. If false representations are made, he is, of course, misled; and the party who made them is clearly, and very properly, chargeable with duplicity. Deception in such matters may serve a nefarious purpose for the time being, and we know that it often does; but, sooner or later, it meets with its deser...

CHANGE OF FORTUNE. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 22 December 1866
CHANaE OP FIO;RUSE.--T'he ~ rench correspon dent in Lan ad Iand Wate, relates the fol!owing inci dent of Count Bismarcek's life:-"In 154li BGimarck was twenuty-six years old, and had just past his civil service examnination. He went to the chief of his department, and was told to wait in the auto room. At the end of half an hour ha exhibited s;ymptions of great irrit:ation; three.qiarters of an hour passed, and ihe pulled offt' his gloves anud tore thlem. TWhen he had waited an hour and a half he got up, and was leaving the room, when the gon tlueman he w'as waiting for opened the door, and asked him what he inquired. ' Sir, an hour and a half ago I wished to speak with you, but I desire to do so no longer.' And young Bismarck went away.

AGRICULTURAL. FAT AND FLESH. (BOSTON CULTIVATOR.) [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 22 December 1866
. AGRIO ULTUR AL. i: - .. AT AND FLESH, (nosToN CoULTIVATOn.) SThIE?E essentials of human diet are drawn from earth and air by the vegetable kingdom; grass S and grain, roots and herbage, furnished the raw material from which domesticated animals manufacture these important articles. The -; mineral ]kingdom is the basis of the vegotable, without which the animal would soon become extinct. Grass and grain are the constituoents ?': of flesh, the starch and sugar thereof forming the fat. Dr. Piesso says in one hundred parts of wheat are ten pounds of flesh: in one hundred parts oatmeal, nearly double tha;t amount. Oats are therefore better for horses on account of the flesh forming principle, rather than fat, muscle being what is needed for a horse. F:or thttcning purposes corn is better. r When flesh is eaten the system appropriates whatis already formed, but would take it friom which vegetable or flour. The flesh-mlaking p: rinciple, or the flesh itself in its constituents, ' goes to...
