CANADA AND THE FENIANS. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 4 August 1866
CANADA AND THE FENIANS. A body of 2,500 Fenians had invaded Canada, and were met by a party of volun teers, when a sharp engagement took place, in which the Canadians were routed. The Fenians had no artillery, and returned to Fort Eyre. The United States Government prevented the Fenians getting reinforcements. Some of them were afterwards captured by a gunboat of the United States Government ; some were shot by the British, and others captured and imprisoned. The leading General and Presi dent of the Fenian Brotherhood were also captured. There have been other small fights between the Fenians and Canadians at St. Alban's and Vermont, but the Canadians were again defeated. On the 10th June a brigade of English regulars charged on the Fenian forces located on the boundary line of Canada and Vermont.

THE TRAMWAY INAUGURATION. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 4 August 1866
THE TRAMWAY INAUGURATION. Our report of the ceremonies associated with tbe inauguration of the new tramway works occupies a large portion of our space to-day, and we must reserve for another issue tbe comments that suggest themselves upon the sayings and doings of our distinguished visitors. Some food for reflection will be found in the speeches that were delivered at the luncheon on Wednesday, and the scarcity of victuals at the actual repast need not interfere with the proper enjoyment and digestion of the mental feast. Our readers will no douht sift out some grains of reason and good sense from the pyramids of fulsomeness and Oathos that n-ere heaped upon the sacrificial altar of vice- : regal courtesy and patience. For the present we roll o»]y congratulate the South upon the undoubted fact that the district is making itself heard in the high places of the land. There are still many abuses to be reformed, I many grievances to be redressed, and many wants to be supplied ; but earn...

THE PANICS OF THE PRESENT CENTURY. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 4 August 1866
THE PANICS OF TIIE PBESEXT CENTURY. [From Trows1 Circular.'] The number of well-deSned and pnrely raonetarv panics that have been witnessed in the present century has Keen, including that of the past week, five. In ihe early part of the century there were numerous others — indeed, they ivztq ihsji of rapid occurrence: but. these, up to lslo, were all connected with Inn varyhig fortunes of war. It was in 1S26 that the first purely speculative panic took place. In ihe preceding year consols had steadily advanced from 84.J to 96£, and Ibis upward movement had been accompanied by a furor for the establishment of joint-stock companies of all description?. Mines in Mexico and other parts of South America were chiefly in favor ; but when the mania was at its height there was scarcely a con ceivable branch of occupation, from pearl I fishery in the Pacific down to the washing of linen and an equitable system of pawnbroking t atbeme, that was not organized in a prospectus, or that failed to ...

SHEEP BREEDING. SELECTION OF EWES FOR BREEDING. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 11 August 1866
SHEEP BBEED1N& SELECTION OF EWES FOR IiHEEmXG. There is not sufficient attention paid by those gentlemen who breed your flock ewes. I bold that the production of a better class of nock sheep depends very much ypon the farmers themselves. If they were to say, ' We will have none of your bare-polled ewes, with little or no wool on the belly or neck, and no wool under their tails, hut we will have those that possess wool, and of a quality of flesh which shall produce us gooi mutton, if not we will not have them at all,' breeders would produce them because they would know that they could not sell bad ones. POINTS OF A GOOD RAM. Tie ought to possess merits peculiar to liimself. He should have a good masculine countenance ; be ought to have his neck neither too long or too short, and placed upon his body as though it formed part and parcel of him. His breast ought to be well thrown in front, and wide and expansive between his fore legs. There is one thing which is being lost sight...

To a jrallon of common black oil add one. pound of flour of brimstone and as much quick lime as will form a thick paste. The whole to be thoroughly mixed and applied with a Lrush to the diseased parts of the trees eo eoon as they ahed their leaves. The above quantity is sufficient for an orchard of 800 trees. The following recipe for tbe prevention of blight has been used with great efficacy, and rarely been found to fail. To eight gallons of water add a bar of common soap ami a quart of coal tar, the whole to be boiled and well mixed before being used. The young apple trees are to immersed for half a minute or so in this mixture, and whilst it is in a lukewarm state, or the mixture can be laid on with a brush to every part of the...

Something like a Dairy Farm.— What wiiJ eur agricultural readers say when they read of a dairy farm of 3,000 cows for butter-makiug, and a cheese-njakiug plant of 1,000 cow capacity faB eq experiment ?) Yet there is such ta farm, if the Ccdiforaian Farmir speaks truly. .~ Our contem porary, in its issue of 15th Februair, reports: — ': Messrs.

DELAYS AT PORT VICTOR. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 11 August 1866
DEL\Y6 AT PORT VICTOF. The following letter baa ixen addressed to the euiior of the Rigitt-.r. The writer has evidently good grounds for complaint in the matter, and means csnnot be too soon adopted to remedy the cause of che evil complained of: — Si:- -On Tuesday morning, the 31st July, I at rived at Port Victor to load 200 tons flour foe Auckland, New Zealand. Seventy ions of the flout was ready at tbe Port ; the balance of ISO tous had to be brought down by tram from Middic-ton ; yet, notwithstanding the complaints made by the ir-T- chants. the agent, end mvself, the last of it was not down uutil G p.m. on Saturday. Tins delay, in my opiniou. requires to be inves tigated, as it seeni3 'perfectly inoustrous that vessels shouid have to wait in a really good port, as this most undoubtedly is, for a whole week for 200 tons ca:go, the wearier being fine the whole time (less two hours of rain). There would have been no difficulty in taking on board SO or 90 tens per day. The largest qu...
