THE ROYAL SOCIETY OF TASMANIA. (FROM THE HOBART TOWN MERCURY.) [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian — 29 October 1864

THE ROYAL SOCIETY OF TASMANIA. {TOOK TOE HOH1BT TOWK KEBCTOr.) At the monthly meeting of the society, held on the fltli October, a lull found at Sandy lluy was presented by Mr*. Owen Meredith. Mr. Morton Allport remarked:—" Owing to tbeabsenceof any standard modem work on tub, ft was impossible to gire the scientific name of the curious specimen presented by 'Mrs. Meredith, but it is probably allied to the anglers, or frog-fish (Bopblus, en. t). I hare taken several specimens of two distinct species in the shallow tide-pools on Brunt Island, and bad, therefore, good opportunities of observing the curious we made of the paw-like ventral fins. The fish inhabits shallow sandy bays, and is constantly exposed to the -riik of being left dry by the ebbing tide, and then resorts at once to the viae of its ventral fins to overtake the receding water. On wet sand the fish travels at such a good {site, that It is fiiiBralt for a minute or two to lay hold of it—the motion reminding one forcibly...

The Australasian. SATURDAY, OCTOBER 29, 1864. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian — 29 October 1864

S/Ijt^nsfralasiatt. SATUBDAY, OCTOBER 29, 1864. The accounts from the settlers who recently proceeded from Adelaide to found a new colony on the north western coast are not quite as satis factory as could have been desired. It is not, however, the country which is complained of,—it is the Governor. "When the telegraph, a few days ago, informed us that a coroner's jury, sitting to investigate the circumstances attend ing the death of one of the party, who fell in an encounter with the natives, added a rider to their verdict im pugning the conduct of -be Governor, and when it was known that the fore man of the jury was Mr. Fdtniss' Private Secretary, it became obvious that there was something seriously wrong. The fuller details which the published letters convey do not remove that impression. It is true that Mr. Flnsiss' own version of the matter has not been published. His reasons for the vacillating course which he has followed are not given. On the principle that there are always t...

TO CORRESPONDENTS. " D. BWahgunyali, should write to His Exoelleuoy the Governor, who will, no doubt, forward to Her Majesty the memorial to which our correspondent alludes. Our correspondent who writes from Q.uecns olir will see that we hare attended to his suggestion. We shall always bo glad of similar hints. Wo shall be glad to hear from " Oxonian " on some less obscure subject. It is long'sinoe wo road The Pleasures of Hope, but " the lost Scene " sent to us by *' T. B." forcibly recalls some of the glowing passages of Campbell's famous poem. The resemblance is perhaps merely a curious coincidence. The letter from Talbot will be strictly attended lo, trod we regret that there should hare been occasion for it. Pressure on the apace of The Anslralanao, large as it is, oompels us to hold over a con siderable number of communications and papers of varied interest.

SEA CULTURE OF ASPARAGUS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian — 29 October 1864

SEA CULTURE OF ASPARAGUS. The following extracts from a prize essay by Daniel K. Young, Esq^ of Queen's Co. New York, will show the way in which this important crop is planted by those who grow it on a large scale for market. Mr. Yonng considers that a deep fine sandy soil is to be preferred to all others: — SEED-BED. Starting with the proposition that only roots of one year's growth should ever be transplanted, as older ones are liable to get mutilated in digging, and are every way leas convenient without any correspond ing advantage, it becomes important to obtain the largest possible growth the first season. For this, a clean sandy soil is almost indis pensable, made rich with fine manure, well worked in. Bake smooth and fine, and plant in drills fourteen inches apart, two inches between seeds. To insure an even stand, it is better to drop the seed by band,- as it iB difficult to regulate even the best seed drill to drop one seed at a time at regular intervals; cover an inch deep...

THE VOLUNTEERS. THE CONDITION OF THE VOLUNTEER FORCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian — 29 October 1864

THE VOLUNTEERS. THE CONDITION OF THE VOLUN-' TEEll FORCE. It iB now twelve months since the Vic torian Volunteer force was re-constituted. We have had a year's experience of the working of the new regulations, the de clared object of'which was to cast off idlers, to provide a stricter discipline, and to guarantee that the state should only contribute to the expenses of the men who qualified themselves to rank as " cflbctives." Croakers had it that the attempt would he a failure, and, with the usual inconsistency of the genus, alleged that the men would never pass the ordeal, and that the Government would get no return for its money. To this we can now " Shout forth a bold denial With hearty British cheers." We do not desire at all to flatter the Volunteers, hut readily acknowledge that they have still much to do and to learn. At the same time, a glance at the working of the new regulations will show the public that itB defenders have done well, and have fairly won both praise and co...
