The Veterinarian. CHRONIC COUGH is, in all animals, a common consequence of catarrh and bronchitis. It con-&lt;*> sists in an irritable state of the mucus membrane of the throat, and is easily excited by exercise, ' sudden changes of temperature, or other trivial ; causes. It is usually treated by blisters and setons, au occasional laxative, a few doses of ; calomel and opium, or a combination, such as a i drachm of extract of belladonna, two drachm* j of camphor, and four draclims of Canada balsam, beat up in gruel or treacle and water.

STATISTICS. (ORIGINAL AND COLLATED.) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 17 March 1866
STATISTICS. (ORIGINAL AND COLLATED.) The oldest newspaper in the world is pub-&lt;*> lished at Pekin, and has made an appearance once a week for the last 1000 years, inscribed upon a broad sheet of Chinese manufactured silk. France produces above six millions, and im ports abore two millions worth of raw silk annually. The export of wrought silk from England to Australia, in the same year, amounted to the raloe of £139,000. One acre of land planted with mulberry trees in full growth yields 8000 lbe. of leaves, which may be sold at 2s 6d. per cwt, so that the farmer may depend upon an annual return of £10 per acre (the average return of land in France is from £3 to £4 per acre), besides the enhanced value accrued to his land, which is not less than twice or three times ita primitive value; so that one acre of agricultural land, averaging from £30 to £10, when under common crops, will, when planted with mulberry trees, be worth £60, £80, and even £100.

SERICULTURE IN QUEENSLAND. NO. V. ORIGIN AND HISTORY. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 17 March 1866
SERICULTURE IN QUEENSLAND. NO. V. ORIGIN AND HISTORY. BY MRS. A. TIMBRELL. TRADITION assigns to China the credit of being the country where the discovery of silk was effected; and, if the legend speaks truth-&lt;*> fully, we are justified in ascribing to the beauti- ful Silinghi, chief wife of the Celestial Emperor who reigned 2700 8.C., the honor of utilising that novelty. It appears from an ancient chronicler that the wives of the Chinese were emulous of providing their lords with some new and rich habiliments ; and that the amiable Silinghi, while wandering in a contemplative mood through the grounds of tha palace, noticed sundry oblong glossy substances sus pending from the branches of a wild mulberry tree which grew in the Emperor's garden. Her ingenious mind and natural disposition for industry combined to indicate the direction of her movements, and secretly possessing herself of large numbers of the previously neglected cocoons, Silinghi, in due course of time, an...
