Popular Education. Lecture delivered at 'Manchester Mechanics' Institution. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 23 October 1829
Popular Education! Lecture delivered at 'Manchester Mechanics' Institution. Knowledge is not only power but.virtue; for, although the idea of moral responsibility is an original and ineffaceable fea- ture of-the human minden is education only thal gives proper ideas-ce that wherein moral responsibility consists. The same conscientious dispositions, which directed by. the light of the nineteenth century, and the first,'make a man ¿philanthropist, might in the middle ages have made him a persecutor, and an assassin. The strongest feelings of duly, and the'lovelicit ener- gies of genious, are like the unpropped vine, which" grovels aloitg the ground, unless turned by some friendly guidance towards Heaven. We assert with confidence that the 'ignorance of the Jov/er classes has been the most fruitful source of human misery, and of the instability of empires/ Was' it by Mechanics' Insti tutes and Committee's of Education, or by the gladiatorial butcheries of the Amphitheatre, that1 the Ro...
Winter Food for Cows. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 23 October 1829
Winter rood for Cows* M..Utiaoerl, toe u.irectorot me Veterinary school at Aiton, had a number of cows, which yielded twelve gallons ot milk every day. In his publications on the'subject, he observes, that, cows fed in the winter, upon dry substances, give less milk than, those\which are kept upon a green diet, and also that their milk loses-much of Its quality. He published the following recipe, by the use of which his cows weie'made to yield-an equal quantity -and quality of milk during the winter as during the summer. Take a bushel of potatoes, break them whilst raw, place them In a barrel standing up, putting in suc- cessively ti layer of potatoes and a layer of bra», and n small quantity .of yeast in the middle of the mass, which is thus left to ferment during a week, when the vinous Uste bas pervaded the whole mi*«urc*vit is çiven tu the cows, who eat it greedily«

Sydney Intellignece. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 23 October 1829
Sydney Intelligence &nbsp; &nbsp; It will be seen in our shipping intelligence, that the Colonial schooners Prince Regent and Harlequin have ar- rived at Launceston, from Port Jackson. They bring no news, but we have received a Sydney paper or two, later than those which had already come to hand, from which we make the following extracts - A new barque called the Australia, 270 tons, built by that old veteran of the sea, John Grono, of Pitt-town, on the joint &nbsp; account of Cooper and Levey, arrived in Sydney Cove on Tuesday evening, Young Wiseman, son of another veteran of Australia, is commander, and the crew, it is said, is to consist of bold native born seamen, real true blues.

New Steam Engine. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 23 October 1829
New Steam Engine. &nbsp; The following most invaluable improvement in Steam Power, without the risk or incumbrance of a boiler, is indeed worthy of the present age, and of the Land of liberty, America; whose enterprising population we noticed in our last. It shows to de- monstration, what the offspring of Britons can accomplish, when its genius is unfettered. The Salem Register notices with commendations an invention &nbsp; of Mr. Dixon, of that place. It is described as being without any " boiler, and consequently that cumbrous and dangerous &nbsp; part of a steam engine is entirely got rid of. But, instead of it, there is a cylindrical vessel of cast iron, two feet in length, one foot in external diameter, and about two inches in thick- ness, which is called the retort.-This retort stands in an air furnace, and is surrounded with the fuel, which is of coal. In this retort the steam is generated, exactly as fast as it is wanted. This is effected by means of ...
