MISCEILANEOUS EXTRACTS. DINNER TO SIR G. GREY.-On the evening of December 21, a complimentary dinner was given to Sir George Grey, K.C.B., governor of the Cape of Good Hope, at the London Tavern, where about 120 gentlemen, either former resi dents or commercially interested in the colony assembled to greet him,. The chair was occu pied by Mr. Harrison Watson; and amongst those present were Lord Keane, Sir Charles Fox, Mr. Russell, M.P., General Pringle Taylor, Sir Godfrey.Thomas, Mr. W. IIawes, and others. In returning thanks for the toast of his health, Sir George Grey, after referring to some matter more immediately connected with the Cape of Good Hope, said a few words about the general relations between Great Britain and her colonial possessions:-" He had found not a few persons who hold that the colonies, instead of being a profit to Great Britain, were an actual encum brance and disadvantage to her.

THE OXYHYDROGEN LIME LIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 28 March 1860

TIIE OXYHYDROGEN LIIE LIGHT. LATELY there was a very briliant display at the Crystal Palace, in the presence of a large scien tific assembly, of an improved oxyhydrogen lime light, as adopted by a new company called the Lime-light Company, and which promises in the way of commercial competition to emulate, if it does not supersede or surpass, existing media for the transmission of artificcal light seeing that its illuminating power contains elements susceptible of being developed into a use and lustre calcu I.ted to compete with gas itself, just as gas has already rivalled every other production, whether it be wax, sperm, oil, or camphine. Its superi ority for lighting purposes where economy in first cost is a desideratum combined with constancy, intensity, and a total absence of the risk of those dreadful explosions that render gas, like fire, such a terrible master as well as such a useful servant, is apparent in it over those other lights that have for several years past been bef...
