Lightning Conductors. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 5 February 1870

Lightning Conductors. The increasing frequency in this colony of loss of life and property by lightning points to tho expediency of adopting every precaution to avoid these disasters. Science presents ono -which it is competent for nearly every householder to adopt. Lightning conductors are not costly articles, and when it is considered that tho protection they afford to property and life is sure and infallible, it becomes a marvel that they aro not in more general usc. The accidents to life and property which usually occur during heavy thunder storms would be largely diminished by_tho use of the con ductor. Owners of houses, of stacks of wheat or hay, of any kind of property which is liable to ignition from lightning can easily protect themselves from danger ; and we repeat that it is astonishing that tho conductor is not in more general use : moro particularly among farmers and others possessing property, which from its isolated position and other causes is specially liable to des...

The Gold-fields of Northern Queensland. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 5 February 1870

The Gold-fields of Northern Queensland. Tho foUowing account of a journoy from tho Gulf of Carpentaria to the gold-field of the Gilbert Range is by a correspondent of tho Cleveland Bay Express : I left the town of Norman for the gold-fields on tho Gilbert Ranges. Tho first twelve miles was over the western bank of Norman River to Normanford. Tho country to tho west was densely timbered with blood wood, striugy-bark, and several species of eucalyptus ; along thc river ban les grow the hibiscus cambodja, seringa sevorinia, and numerous acacias. Tho rocks on tho surface wore silurian limestone and conglomerate ironstone. The ford of the Norman is about thirty feet in width, with precipitous sides, tho top having . been worn even with tho erosion of the limning water. Hero the liver spreads out and has tho semblance of a lake, and in this region the future depot of tho Gulf will no doubt be built. "Vessels of light draught can como to tho ford ; tho tidal influence is felt for sonic dis...

Facts for Farmers. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 5 February 1870

Pacts for Farmers. YOUNG chickens are a protection to young plants in the garden. THE Prairie Farmer says a wash of sour buttermilk will kill lice on animals. < IN the best cheese factory inNcw-York, last year, a little over nine pounds of milk made a pound of cured cheese. THE discoverer that can hiing our farmers anew plant as valuable as corn or sugar would deserve a jubilee to sound his praises. DAIRYMEN need better butter firkin than any now in common use. It should he tough, sweet, air-tight, and cheap. IT takes just as good brains to make a thrifty farmer or fruit grower as to succeed in manufactures or at the bar. THE bests answer to be made when newspaper or book farming is made light of is that experience is none the less valuable because it is printed. THERE is a spinning jenny invented that can make a thread 67 miles long from a pound of cotton. At that rate a bale would reach.round the world. IT pays to make a cow comfortable in as many respects as possible. ...

New Meat-Preserving Process. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 5 February 1870

New Meat-Preserving Process. THE British Medical Journal, in an article on the new ptaent, recently much discussed, of Mr. Jones, M.E.C.S., for preserving meat, says:-"Tho special merit of the now method is that the meat is preserved at 'a low temperature, so that tho nutritious quality, as well as its firmness and fiavoiir, are retained, in stead of being destroyed by the excessive heat em ployed in the systems hitherto adopted. These desk able results are obtained by means of a practical application of the Torricellian vacuum. The raw meat, ?without previous preparation, is put into air-tight tins, which are very simply connected with the vacuum chamber by means of small tubes ; they are then placed in pans of boiling water (at a temperature of 212 deg. ), and, by means of an occasional application of the vacuum pressure, in addition to tho air expelling power of heat, tho desired result is obtained in a few hours .by a complete exhaustion of the air, and the perfect preservation ...

THE GRAZIER. Australian Horses for India. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 5 February 1870

THE GRAZIER. Australian Horses for India. THE Loudon Times of Nov. 26th devotestwo columns of its space to the discussion of a proposal that has been made by the Govern ment of South Australia to the Governor General of India with reference to the supply of the Indian service with horses from Aus tralia, to be shipped from Port Darwin. It appears that Sir James Ferguson, in his lotter to Lord Mayo, says that twenty-five pounds each would be a remunerative price for the breeders of large and well-bred colts, delivered at Port Darwin. The cost of transit to Calcutta or Bombay would not exceed fifteen pounds, and the voyage to either of these Presidencies could be made in eight or ten days. Sir James Ferguson points out the reasons for which the Australian horse has fallen into bad repute in India : " The trade bas boen in the hands of dealers who pur chased inferior animals instead of selecting the best that the country affords." And the Times, commenting upon this, says, " Thus the I...

Useful and Ornamental Trees. No. V.—THE OHESNUT [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 5 February 1870

Useful and Ornamental Trees. No. V.-THE OHESNUT Omi Chcsnut is a genus of plants closely allied to tho booch, smd is indigenous in Asia minor, from a town in which (Castiorum) it derives its name. The common Spanish, or sweet chosnut was originally brought over from Asia minor to Sardinia ; from thence it spread itself ovor tho South of Europe. Undor favourable circumstances it is a magnificent, statoly tree ; but in suitable soils and situations it becomes stunted in its growth, and throws ant branches at a short distanco from tho ground. It profers a deep dry soil, and is adapted for those sloping patches of rich mountain soil which drain themselves by what aro called " dry creoles" in Australia. Planted sparely along tho banks of such creeks, thoy would doubtless render available many fino patches of mountain country by preventing tho extensive abrasion of soil during tho mountain storms and floods, and by helping to retain the water during tho droughts. Tho climate of our mounta...

The Wood-Green Murders. On November 24, Frederick Ilinson was tried at tho Central Criminal Court, England, for tho minder of Maria Death.
