Towns and Villages of New South Wales. [FROM OUR TRAVELLING CORRESPONDENT.] No. II.—THE MINING TOWNSHIPS NEAR NEWCASTLE. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 5 February 1870

Towns and Villages of New South Wales. [PROM OUR TRAVELLING- CORRESPONDENT.] No. II.-THE MINING TOWNSHIPS NEAR NEWCASTLE. IN my last letter I promised to introduce your readers to the suburbs of Newcastle, and, in doing so, I cannot help reiterating the fact, viz., that the residents of the above port have no roads suitable for an evening drive, or a day's drive for pleasure, owing to 'the apathy of its people, in not hunting the late member into something like useful activity for the progress of the district. The wealth of this district is found principally in those black hives of industry, the villages of Borehole, (¡he two Lambtons, Wallsend, and Waratah, each place teeming with industrious, intelligent men and women, and why they should be cooped up as they are, for the want of decent roads, I don't know. BOREHOLE Is a village belonging to the A.A. Go., a wealthy com pany who obtained a large grant of land upon certain conditions, which it would be well for the interests of the ...

Some of My Early Adventures. MY ADVENTURE WITH A SHARK. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 5 February 1870

Some of My Early Adven tures, i [DY AN OLD SPORTSMAN.] MY ADVENTURE WITH A SHARK. \ TWENTY years ago tho Wost Indian squad ron consisted of sailing frigates and brigs, not of scrow-vessela as at present. In those flays officers had to depend entirely upon their seamanship ; thoro was no furl ing sails and getting »team up if in a hoad wind or calm turned up, or to go in and out of difllcnlt harbours ; and if tho pnssago from ' ono port to another did occupy a littlo moro tima than it docs at present, yet thoro was tho pleasure of " eating your way to windward," and of seeing what your vessel roally could do against a foul wind. At tho timo I- alindo to, being on half pay, and having rather too much time on my hands, I had accepted an invitation from my old friend and schoolfellow, Cap tain B-, of _ Hov Majosty's sloop H., to accompany him on a cruise in tho Gulf of Moxico.

Turf Troubles. NO. IL ÏBï AN ANONYMOUS CONTBIBUTÓB.] I CLOSED my last, which, was also my first, with the proposition that to prevent bookmakers owning race horses was preposterous ; but I did not go closely into tho argument. The difficulties in tho way of the pro posed prevention are almost innumerable ; and great as they are many. I should like to hear how such a case as àe following is to be met ;- " Mr. Greenback " is an owner of raco-horses who is accustomed to liberally back his nags ; and he has discovered (by no means a rare discovery) that, as a rule, backing horses doesn't pay. At length ho determined to alter his system ; and having what he considers a good horse entered for the Sydney Cup, or some other largo handicap, he makes a book for him, by wMch is meant that he lays tho current odds against all the other horses in tho race that people will back, and reserves his own to run for all the money. If ho gets well " round " he will per* hapB have a clear hundred to the ...

Mr. Clarke has -written a very readablo novel-the best, far and away, that has ever been producod by a colonial author; for Mr. Clarko, although the incidonts and characters of his book are placed in England, . and there is consequently little local interest in it, is a colonial author.

I 'WHEN I waa stockkeeping at Bruce's, on the Murruni WIIMB there were as nice a lot of fellows on thc head Son as ever got together, perhaps, in a slabbed, but.

Dubbo. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 5 February 1870

Dubbo. [FROM OUR, OWN CORRESPONDENT.] DUBBO STATISTICS.-The police district of Dubbo has its dual interpretation, like most other things. For instance, in collecting tho Electoral roll the police have certain denned directions to guide thom ; so also in collecting pastoral and agricultural sta ' tistics. In the pursuit of crime the boundaries of the police district become very undefined. In col lecting statistics, however, speaking not too p.ro : cisely, the police commence at Ponto, eighteen milos south of Dubbo ; .travel thence by a semi-circular route to Tanambah, on tho Marthaguy, eighty-five ? miles north of Dubbo; to fifty miles on the oast, a little beyond Cobbora; and the same distance on tho west side of tho Mac quarie. It is there obvious that the Dubbo police can take in only a very small portion of the Wellington district and an insignificant part of Bligh. Still, so far as Bligh is concerned in relation to agriculture littlo moro can be gleaned, because beyond tho radiu...

Welding Oast Iron. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 5 February 1870

Welding Cast Iron. IN America the process of welding cast iron is largely pratcticed. A correspondent of the New York Tribune who had seen the operation performed in a large iron foundry at Buffalo describes the method as follows :— One of the rollers of a mill that makes bar-iron weighs from seven to ten tons, and yet these often break, gene- rally by twisting off one of the journals. The strain in making a railway bar is enormus. The foreman of the Buffalo Iron Works has undertaken to repair such damages, and has met with perlect success ; and can now, by the same method, mend almost any other cast iron article great or small. A hole even melted through the bottom of an enormus potash kettle he stops with ease. I went to see a large roller mended. About ten inches of the end was broken off, and that replaced by new metal welded to the cold iron. The shaft is set up on end, if convenient to do so, or else the broken end is raised so as to form a mold for the new part around it, and...

Pigeon Shooting. On Saturday afternoon last that rare old sporting " Trigger-Knight," Mr. Alfred Davis, called his friends together for some shooting at Petersham; and gave them a capital hit of sport. Thoro was! a good muster of tho " Cracks of tho day ;" tho various districts, north, south, arid wost, as well as metro politan hoing excellently well represented ; and tho Hst, as I givo it below, tells for itself that most of tho very best shots in tho colony were among tho per formers. Goidburn sent Harry Payten, Avell named the "Champion of the south," tho honorable member for the Nepean represented well that western constituency ; Charley Eather came from the far northern Namoi, and. that the metropolitan clubs wore not behind in quality is shown by tho con vincing names of Moon, Gannon, Yorke, Davis, Manton, G.

Mudgee. [FROM A CORRESPONDENT.]   I am glad to have an opportunity of bringing our   "fussy little village of Mudgee" (so called by one of your Bathurst contemporaries some time back) before the public through the columns of your paper. The days aro gono by when a person writing from Sydney exclaimed, " My dear O-, where tho Q._i's Mudgee ?" Yet such was the case not vory long ago. But nevertheless, things worth notice do occur here sometimes. For instanco, tho election of a secretary and medical attendant for our hospital took placo last week, when ono individual roso and stated that " ho had sufficient proxies in his pocket to put in, in spite of any opposition, the present town clerk as secretary, and the medico he thought host suited for it."   The two municipal councils, viz., the Cudgegong and the Town, have just had their nominations, with, a great amount of fun and small talk, more parti- cularly in the Town, as the other is comparative...
