CHINESE BARBARITY. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 15 February 1873

CHINESE BARBARITY. TUB Chinese colonists, so generally looked upon as an inoffensive, industrious race, appear when circumstances arise, to be tubject to the dire spirit of revenge whic i exists: amongst the outer barbarians when smarting under injuries. A few weeks ago a serious disturbance took place at the farm of Mr. Davey, Mount Cameron. Several Chinamen had^een engaged to assist in harvest opera- tions. During the progress of the work, says the Majorca Independent, one of the hands, a coloured man, had cause to find fault.with one of the Chinamen, and upon the latter remonstrating he was struck in the face by the person alluded to, and knocked down. When work was finished for the day, the Chinamen as usual kindled a large fire . and commenced preparations for their meal. The disagreeableness of the early portion of the day had evidently not worn off, for some- how the Chinamen got into their clutches I the coloured man before mentioned, and in I an instant he was put upon the ...

A FLOOD IN NEW SOUTH WALES. (See Supplement.) [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 15 February 1873

A FLOOD IN NEW SOUTH WALES. (See Supplement. ) WITH this number we issue a large supple- ment illustrating one of the most peculiar phases of life in Australia-a flood ! Who, among those dwelling in the colonies, has not heard, read, or seen something of its terrible power?-of luxuriant lowlands, sub- merged beneath a waste of waters-of com- fortable homesteads devastated-of fields and gardens destroyed-of live-stock drowned by thousands-and, worst of all, of the fearful loss of human life which nearly every flood entails ? If we turn to the earliest records of the colony, we find that many of the then known districts were visited by floods periodically. Eleven years after the foundation of the colony, a heavy flood occurred at the Hawkesbury, which, began on the 3rd of March, and lasted for sixteen days. In March of the two following years, the same district was visited by severe floods, and the first record of the loss of human life by this calamity is that of a man named John Sto...

CROMWELL, OTAGO. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 15 February 1873

CROMWELL, OTAGO. I THE township of Cromwell is situated at the junction of the Kawarau and Clutha rivers. It is about 150 miles from Dunedin, and- is now the commercial centre of a large and increasing mining district. Like most goldfields towns, it has experienced many vicissitudes, and has only grown by slow processes. Eight or nine years ago it had no being j now it is a fully established, duly incorporated municipality, with all the para- phernalia of Mayor, Town Councillors, Town Clerk, Borough Solicitor, &c. The quantities of gold which are week by week brought THE DUGONG. into the town, and sold at hank or store, form the pabulum vita} of the population. There are on all hands signs of material prosperity. Cromwell has already a good public library, and a new athenreurn is about to be erected. It has its local newspaper the Cromwell Argus-which appears to be conducted with much spirit and indepen- dence. The results obtained from the quartz mining operations on the Ca...

"The poet, in the beginning of this book, propouuds the general design of each Georgie; and, after a solemn invocation of all the gods who are any way related to his Bubject, he addresses himself in parti- cular to Augustus, whom he compliments with divinity; and after strikes into his business. He shows the differen t kinds of tillage xiroper to diiFerent kinds of soils, traces out the original of agriculture, gives a catalogue of the husbandman's tools, specifies -the employments peculiar to euch season, describes the chauges of the weather, with the signs in heaven .and earth that forbode them ; instances many of the prodigies that happened near the time of Julius Caisar's death ; aud shuts up all with n supplication to the gods for the safety of Augustus, and the pre- servation of Rome.

THE DARNLEY ISLAND MUMMY. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 15 February 1873

THE DARNLEY ISLAND MUMMY. THE "latest sensation" among tilings curious, is, undoubtedly, the Darnley Island Mummy, now on view at Mrs. Gourlay's Variety Ex- hibition Rooms, Pitt-street. As a specimen of a " cured human," he stands pre-eminently alone. He appears to have no connection with the relics of Egypt's palmy days-those swells who walked about lu Thebes' streets three thousand years ago, -nor to be related to the skivered-up pig- mies (we believe from South America) shown in glass cases at the Sydney Museum some twelve or fourteen years ago. Neither does he claim affinity with the smoked black- fellows of our Australian continent-he stands on his own merits. We interviewed him shortly after his ar- rival, and found him dreadfully uncommuni- cative, so that we have nothing to do but to describe his personal appearance, as far as memory serves, with'such information as was furnished by the captain who brought him to Australia, leaving all physiological theories to the savants. ...

Our Farm. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 15 February 1873

} ©ur jfaim WE have not been idle, although we have not recorded our progress as usual. Our potatoes turned up sound and good in quality, as they usually do on virgin ground. We gave the pigs a run on the ground, and they did not leave a seed. The poultry enjoyed what they found, both to their advantage and our own. And then in went our double furrow ploughs until all the ground was turned in and over. In our corn, we broke over the blossom tassels, and as soon as the corn-cob began to set weil we cut the stalks down, and stacked them in shocks to ripen. We then carried it, and pulled stacking the stalks for cattle and horse food. The ground was clean from the frequent stirring aud hoeings ; but the poultry again enjoyed themselves in following the work of the double ploughs. We found our shelter-j shed invaluable, pending the erection of our ! farmstead for protecting our crops and shel- tering our live stock and farm implements. We have now ready for the plough, ll and 12-13 and 1...

Chapters on Common Things No. XII. SUGAR. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 15 February 1873

C&apterô on Common Cínncjs No. XII. SUGAR. IT is not a little remarkable that an article in such general use as sugar-the production of which in the present day amounts to a million and a half of tons from all sources should have been so little known amongst the Ancients, and so rare in many parts of England even up to the fifteenth century, that we read of a Mrs. Pastor, the wife of a landowner of Norfolk, of that day, writing to her husband in London, and begging that he will "vouchsafe to buy her a pound of sugar." Many of the early writers, even so far back as the father of history, Herodotus, make allusions to "honey made hythe hands of man," and " the sweet juice of an Indian reed, much used for drinking," which Pliny calls Sacchorn ; but of its precise nature, place of production, &c, the most vague opinions were held. There is little doubt that China and India were the original places of production of this article, whence it would seem to have tra- velled by ...

JOSEPH COOK AND CO.'S ALMANACS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 15 February 1873

JOSEPH COOK AND CO.'S ALMANACS. OWING: to press of matter in last issue we were prevented from noticing the almanacs issued by the above firm. Messrs. Cook and Co. are identified with the publication of most of the Church of England literary work in this colony ; and it is chiefly for members of the church-that the above almanacs have been compiled. The sheet contains an ample fund of interesting church matter, the new lectionary, or table of lessons throughout the year, statistical information as to proportion of each denomination, &c. The book-almanac contains much the same matter in a more portable form. The printing in both instances is excellent, and the information appears to have been very carefully collated. We may also refer to the Sunday School Class Registers issued by Messrs. Cook & Co., as being well got up, and of great use to all engaged in the work of Sunday School teaching.

GOURLAY'S VARIETY EXHIBITION. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 15 February 1873

GOTJRLAY'S VARIETY EXHIBITION. THIS popular place of amusement continues to be well patronised, and is ever!presenting something novel. The last addition has I been the Darnley Island Mummy. We need I not refer to this particularly, as we have given an illustration and description of the mummy in another column. The beautiful panorama, painted by W. J. Wilson, is a nightly attraction, that never fails to evoke admiration. Then there is the life-size array of wax figures-the effigies of personages whose names stand out illustrious in history, and a host of other curiosities, from which something amusing or instructive may be gathered. Lastly, we may refer to the excellent sing- ing and serio-comic acting of Miss Minnie and Master John Gourlay. The latter, in point of stature, can no longer be associated with the " Little Johnny " of the Gourlay's famous Scottish Entertainment of some years since ; but his voice has developed with age, and he is a really excellent expositor of the hig...

OUTRAGE BY BLACKS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 15 February 1873

OUTRAGE BY BLACKS. The aborigines in Queensland are giving a great deal of trouble to the white settlers. Large mobs of wild blacks are roaming about the borders of civilisation, and in November last a raid was made upon a party of China- men, which, has most effectually put a stop to Chinese prospecting for gold in the .Uiver Gilbert district. Our engraving graphically represents the event ' as it occurred, and is described in the Cleveland Bay Express of the 30th ult. From it we learn that : "On Tuesday, 12th November, about noon, thirty Chinamen were working on the Gil- bert River, between six and eight miles below Gilberton, when they were surprised and rushed by a mob of wild blacks. The Chinamen, on perceiving them, immediately took to their heels, and having a start of about 100 yards, and running as Chinamen never ran before, the majority of them suc- ceeded in reaching Gilberton unharmed, though terribly frightened. .

Australian Natural Distory. THE DUGONG. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 15 February 1873

australian Raturai fëistorp* THE DUGONG. THIS animal, resembling in form, those of the whale tribe, although far smaller, and differing from them in many other respects besides size, is found abundantly on the northern coasts of New South Wales, and is generally known to the colonists as the sea pig. The head of the dugong is small in propor- tion to its body, and is most singularly shaped. The upper lip is very thick, and flattened at the extremity. It is to this queer-looking snout, we presume, that the . animal is indebted for the swinish cognomen by which, ib is ordinarily known. The du- gong has a thick smooth skin, with a few hairs scattered over its surface. Its colour is bluish on the back, with a white breast and belly. In size the full-grown, male has never, we believe, beeu found more than eighteen or twenty feet long ; but those commonly taken are much less than this. The food of the dugong consists chiefly of marine vegetables, which it fiuds at the bottom of inlets, in...

FERNSHAW, AND THE BLACK SPURS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 15 February 1873

FERNSHAW, AND THE BLACK SPURS. A traveller who, for the first time, finds himself some fifty miles from Melbourne on the Yarra track to Wood's Point, will have occasion to acknowledge that the popular opinion on the subject of the sombre, dingy hue, and the monotonous and unpicturesque character of Victorian landscape, is a pre- judice from which he is freed, at once and for ever. Coidd he arrive at the foot of the Black Spur at daybreak, and without the opportunity of observing the gradual change in the aspect of the country as he advances mile by mile, he would find it difficult to believe that he is indeed so short I a distance from town. The singularity and grandeur of the scenery, the new forms and luxuriance of the foliage, and the brilliant green that meets the eye on every side, suggest a feeling of tropical magnificence. The gum-tree is here, but no longer recog- nisable by its grotesque and tortuous growth; it runs up straight and tapering as a ship's mast, with but few br...

No. 2.—WATERFALLS AT NATTAI. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 15 February 1873

No. 2.-WATERFALLS AT NATTAI. The country surrounding the town of Nattai is very mountainous, and in many places wild and romantic in the extreme. There are several chalybeate springs in the neighbourhood, very much resorted to by invalids ; and in the rocky chasms and ravines are numerous picturesque waterfalls and cascades. One of these we present in this number from a photograph by Mr. Nicholas, of Sutton Forest. The Nattai Eiver rises near Berrima and flows m a northerly direction into the Wol- londilly at Burrangong. The scenery is well worthy the attention of the artist and tourist.

VIEWS AT NATTAI. No. 1.—FITZROY IRON WORKS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 15 February 1873

VIEWS AT NATTAI. No. 1.-FITZROY IRON WORKS. ALTHOUGH iron is distributed in more or less abundance over the whole of the colony, the Fitzroy works are the only ones we possess for reducing the ore into marketable metal. They are situated at Nattai-which is a postal township, 74 miles S. W. from Sydney, and 2500 feet above the level of the sea. The district is an agricultural, mining, and pas- toral one ; the mineral worked being coal and iron-of which there are large deposits. The iron ore is a red hematite, containing about 70 per cent., and is fouud both on the surface and extending underground to a depth of 300 feet. The estate of the Fitzroy Iron Company consists of 1600 acres of land, intersected by the main Southern road-the iron being all on one side-the coal all on the other. Un- fortunately, although about £100,000 has been spent on buildings and mining and smelting operations-the speculation has   proved a commercial failure ; but we believe that the whole pro...

SPENCER'S ROYAL POLYTECHNIC. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 15 February 1873

SPENCER'S ROYAL POLYTECHNIC. AT this excellent place of amusement nothing is spared that will conduce to the pleasure of its patrons. We call in, after a week's absence, to have another look at the in- genious curiosities "that never weary or grow old," and we always find some new attraction to delight and amuse us. The last novelty is an electro-magnetic boat, which paddles from one end to the other of a water-tight glass case, of about thirty-ti ve feet in length. The vessel itself is six feet and a half long, and weighs about 50 lbs. - the simple motive power being placed amidships. We have not space to enter into details as to the working of the machinery, suffice it that it is simple, ex- tremely inexpensive, aud effective. Every- thing appertaining to the apparatus has been constructed by Mr, Spencer, even to the magnets-and it certainly forms a curiosity that no one should neglect seeing. The performances of Mr. Spencer's clever j family seem to grow more popular than ever, a...
