RAWORTH'S COLLECTION OF NEW ZEALAND WATER-COLOR PAINTING [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 15 February 1873

RAWORTFTS COLLECTION OP NEW ZEALAND WATER-COLOR PAINTING THIS admirable set of pictures representing the scenery of New Zealand under various aspects, may now be seen at the residence of Mr. Raworth, 155 Castlereagh-street. The paintings are hung in three spacious rooms, most of those selected, for the forthcoming Art Union being disposed of in one apart- ment. As being of more local interest to the members, Mr. Raworth has painted two special pictures for this Art Distribution. The first prize is a magnificent view of a por- tion of Middle Harbour, taken from the vicinity of Willoughby Falls. It is a marvel- lous rendering of the solitary quietude of some of our barbour nooks-and is essentially Australian in its character. Indeed, so dis- tinctive is it from the prevailing tone of New Zealand mountain-scenery, that Mr. Raworth proves himself a perfect master of his art, in being able to transfer to paper, so faithfully, the peculiarities of any scene-however opposite in general eff...

OUR LIVE STOCK. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 15 February 1873

OUR LIVE STOCK. WE are not suprised, although we may re- gret the occurrence, that we have been informed by several stockowners from various . districts, that their sheep are fearfully in- fected, as they describe it, with the flukes, bottle, worms, and swelled heads, and that they are dying in every direction ; and that the cattle and pigs are also in unhealthy con- dition. The longer a pasturage is grazed, the more the live stock feeding it are restricted in change and management ; and the more -thickly a district becomes stocked and the animal life concentrated, the greater the danger of the introduction of disease among them, either indigenous, or by importation, by inoculation, or atmospheric influences, or -other baneful causes. Then, a moist muggy weather, with a dripping season as this has ^proved, is relaxing and enervating to the animal frame, and equally so to vegetable life unfortunately, producing a plentiful but innutritious growth, rapidly decaying, and creating miasm...

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

BRANDING: STOCK. THERE is a right and a wrong way in mqst. .things-and cattle and horse branding ranks ¿as one of them. There are three things to be .considered. 1st The form and construction of the brand; 2nd, the heat of it ; and 3rd, the mode of applying the iron. No. 1. No. 2. "The form should be in block lettering, as shown, orin writing capitals with open curves made about à of an inch wide on the face, level, an l| inch deep, and widening .towards the back as shown on No. 2. The .handle twisted or turned near its junction -with the letters, which should be firmly welded to it, and the handle sufficiently long -to avoid burning the hand when in use. Cross -pieces, when necessary, in any letters should "be rivetted in. Unless the lettering be suffi- ciently thick on the back, there will not be -sufficient latent heat retained to supply that . absorbed from the thin and narrow face of .the letter, and, consequently, the thin brand has to be kept a considerable time on the -poor ...

OUR WINES [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 15 February 1873

OUR WINES WILL, when in general and common every day use, lead more pleasantly and cheerfully to almost universal temperance, than all the talking, writing, and preaching that the human machinery, or steam-driven machinery could throw off in a century. If we could only induce the other numerous Bonifaces of the country to follow the excellent and patriotic example of host Roberts, of the Crown and Anchor, and give the public a good, wholesome, light, pleasant beverage, neither inebriating or deadening in quality ; such as the pure colonial good wine that he supplies at 6d. a pint, drunkenness, with all its concurrent horrors, would soon pass away -which is well proved by the sober habits of the population wherever the light wines are the production and general drink of the people. We know that good wines can be profitably grown, and sold when fit and wholesome to drink at 2s. 6d. a gallon, with the present high rate of labour, and even for much less. It is the waste, and charges in ...

WATER (concluded.} To CARRY A SUPPLY OP WATER IJT WAG- GONS.-The most efficient way of carrying a large supply of water upon wheels has yet to he determined. Captain Sturt, when he explored in Aus- tralia, took a tank in his cart, which burst, and, besides that, he carried casks of water. By these he was enabled to face a desert country with a success which no traveller before had ever attained to. For instance, when returning homewards, the water was found to be drying up from the country on all sides of him. He was at a pool, and the next stage was HS miles, or four days' jour- ney, at the end of which it was doubtful if I there remained any water. It was necessary I to send to reconnoitre, and to furnish the j messenger with means of returning should ¡ the pool be found dry. He killed a bullock, skinned it, and, filling the skin with water (which held 150 gallons), sent it byan ox-dray 30 miles, ...

^electtottó ®rabe anü «ag* AMERICAN MUSICAL CRITICISM. - Some **' choice specimens " of musical criticism '. lave lately appeared in the American papers. Here are a few. Speaking of Signor Mario's recent appearance in opera in the United .?States, one New York critic writes : " The . jperfection of his method remains ; but his .voice, like the memory of a buried joy, may "foe imagined, but hardly admits of descrip- tion;" another, however, wishiug to be more ? »concise, simply compares the artist to "au .aged nightingale with a cold. " Of the style ?"highfalutin" the critique on Madame Ru "dersdorff affords a rich example-this, also, is from a New York paper :-"To tell you how sshe. sang would be impossible ; but if one anay compare an object of sight to one of - .sound, we would say that her voice is like a rocket, which from the flrsb bursts upon the -sight with a magnificence that claims undi- vided attention, and in an instant carries your attention from earth to heaven, when it...

BLUE'S POINT, NORTH SHORE, SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 15 February 1873

BLUE'S POINT. BLUE'S POINT, NORTH SHORE, SYDNEY. The sconery on the North Shore of Sydney Hai'bor is grand and beautiful in tho extreme. Early chroniclers informs us that tho North Shore was considered in many respects the most suitable for thc founding of a city, and that it was only tho stream of fresh water which was found flowing into Sydney Cove which led to tho site on tho southern side of thc harbor being chosen. Not long ago at a meeting of members of the Sydney Exchange, the chairman predicted that at no very dis- tant date their edifice would bo in the centre of the city, and that St. Leonard's would be- come to Sydney what Brooklyn is to New York. A plan, for a bridge to connect the city with the North Shore was prepared some time ago, and it is anticipated that before RECEPTION OF SIR G. BOWEN BY THE MAORIES AT FOXTON.

PART IV.-PRESENT STATE, 1854. Tho laying down of the sub-marine telegraph from Spezzia to the Island of Corsica-an event of wide world importance-has just been most satisfactorily accomplished.-Letter from Cope Corso, July 25i/i. Wc are glad to observe that the electric telegraph betwixt Bombay and Calcutta is at present iu good working order.-Bengal Iluvkaru, August 20th. The electric telegraph between Agra and Calcutta, SOO miles in length, is completed. Almost before we have learned to regard the idea of a magnetic intercourse betwixt England and India as any tiling better than chimerical, there seems some- thing like a probability of its being actually realized. -Agra Messenger, August 26th. IT is impossible to read the above quota- tions without coming to the conclusion that the time is not.far distant when, by the aid of the electric telegraph, a few days may serve for communication between Sydney and the great cities of Europe. When, some two years ago, the views on this subj...

PART III.—POLITICAL AND SOCIAL. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 15 February 1873

PART III.-POLITICAL AND SOCIAL. OF the former papers on this subject, the first touches upon the 2^'obabilities and j)os sibilities, whilst the second has reference to the ways and means,-the social and political considerations have now to be dealt with. The occupation of waste lands by the im- poverished but industriously disposed inhabi- tants of old countries, must follow upon the introduction of facilities for deportation. Emigration, therefore, would be one of the great objects of the railway, and one of the chief sources of profit, and, even sup- posing that emigration from Great Britain should, by the time the railway was in ac- tion, have declined in consequence of an in- crease in the means of employment of her pauper poor (notwithstanding the addition of a thousand a day to her population) still a railway would offer irresistible temptations to the oppressed and, starving populations, of Europe and Asia; millions of people would be poured into Australia-a mighty revolu- ti...

PART II.—FINANCIAL. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 15 February 1873

PART II.-FINANCIAL. iNpart thefirst, the practicability of establish- ing an Electric Telegraph, and even a Rail- way, between Sydney and London was de- monstrated from many pregnant circum- stances-principally that electric telegraphs and railways are already in progress in India -that Baron Rothschild contemplates a net- work of railways in Syria-that a grand Oriental railway and telegraph between London and Calcutta are spoken of, besides overland routes to India-and, that in time, the extension of the telegraph and rail to Singapore, and to the Australian colonies, can scarcely be doubted. The ways and means by which this project could be accom- plished have now to be considered. The finance of a scheme which is to con- nect the Antipodes can scarcely be brought within rule, nor are there any readily acces- sible data here on which to found calcula- tions ; and even if there were, statements of outlay and prolit, save of. the rudest charac- ter, would be quite out of the questio...

literature* AN ADVENTURE IN THE CLOUDS. "WE are not related. His name is John Griffiths, and I am William Waldur ; and .we called ourselves the Patagonian Brothers, because it looked well in the bills and pleased the public. We met by chance, about six years since, on the race-course at Doncastor, and so took a sort of mutual liking, and ?went partners in a tour through the midland counties. We had never seen or heard of each other up to that time ; and though we became good friends, were never greatly in- timate. I knew nothing of his past life, nor he of mine, and I never asked him a question on the subject. I am particular to have this all clear from the beginning ; for I am a plain man telling a plain story, and I want no one to misunderstand a word of what I am about to relate. We made a little money hy our tour. It was not much ; but it was moie than either of us had been able to earn before ; so we agreed to stay together and try our fortune in London. This time we got an eng...

Poetry. TIRED MOTHERS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 15 February 1873

'" TIRED MOTHERS. . A LITTLE elbow leans lipon your knee, I Your tired knee, that has so much to bear ; A child's dear eyes are looking lovingly , From underneath a thatch of tangled hair. Perhaps you do not heed the velvet touch Of warm, moist fingers, folding yours so tight ; You do not prize this blessing over-much, You almost are too tired to pray to-night But]it is blessedness ! A year ago I did not see it as I do to-day We are so dull and thankless ; and too slow To catch the sunshine till it slips away. And now it seems surpassing strange to me, That, while I bore the badge of mother- hood, I did not kiss more of b, and tenderly, The littlechild that brought me ouly good And, if some night when you sit down to rest, You missjthis elbow from your tired knee ; This restless, curling head from off your breast, This lisping tongue that chatters con- stantly ; If from your own the dimpled hands had slipped, . And ne'er would nestle in your palm again ; If the white feet into their...

Types of Colonial Life. THE TRAVELLING PERFORMER. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 15 February 1873

Cppeö oí Colonial life* THE TRAVELLING: PERFORMER. BY GEORGE E. LOVAU. THE travelling performer is not strictly a colonial character ; he may have, and, pro- bably has, followed a similar occupation in England. There he is an attendant at fairs and races-au Ethiopian serenader, or third class actor at Eichardson's Show. When im- ported to Australia, he finds good actors at a discount, and the field for their endeavours limited ; he, therefore, organizes a troupe, two or three "pros.," as professionals are called, and goes up the country performing. His entertainment must be licensed, but, as the license costs nothing, he gives him- self little concern about it till the last mo- ment, when one is secured from the Colo- nial Secretary's office. This license entitles the holder to perform in all towns, except Sydney, though, prior to- any exhibition taking place, the local Bench raus,t be con- sulted, and give their sanction in writing, for one or more nights, as may be required.

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

SPRAINS Consist in straining, wrenching, or tearing of the ligaments or tough structures which bind bones together to form joints. The wrist and ankle are the joints most commouly sprained. Sprains are among the most severe accidents to which we are subject, as regards the part itself ; the pain is, at the moment, ex- cruciating, often contiuues so on the slightest movement, and too frequently lays the found- ation of what is commonly called white swel- ling. If one, therefore, might have a choice of the two evils, it would be better to break a limb than sprain a joint, as the former is always the lesser evil of the two, in ninety nine cases out of a hundred being cured ia a few weeks, if the skin has not been broken ; whilst the effects of the latter may at best remain for weeks or months, ag weakness or stiffness in the joint. There are few things for which medical men are more unjustly blamed than for the consequences of a sprain ; and we often hear, " Why, Mr. A. has only sprain...

Family Medical Guide. THE NETTLE RASH. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 15 February 1873

dfamílt) ¿Hetoítal tëufte* THE NETTLE RASH. THIS disease takes its name from its being attended by an eruption similar to what is produced by the stinging of nettles. Tbe causes of this complaint are by no means ob- vious ; but it seems to proceed either from the perspiration being checked, or from some irritating matter in the stomach. I have known persons attacked with it on eating shell-fish. In all cases, there prevails con- siderable itching and some heat in the parts affected ; and, in some constitutions, a slight degree of fever either precedes or at- tends the eruption. Its duration seldom ex- ceeds three or four days. In some cases, nettle rash is accompanied with large wheals or bumps, which appear of a solid nature, without any cavity or head, containing either water or other fluid. I knew a young lady intimately, who, some years ago, was very subject to attacks of this species of nettle rash. She frequently went to bed in excellent health, and in the morning one or both ...
