Household Hints. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 16 April 1873

To PRESERVE POLISHED STEEL FKOM RUST. -The heat suhstauce for preserving polished steel from rust is pure paraffine. The steel should he warmed sufficiently to melt the paraffine, which should, however, be already in a melted condition ; lay the paraffine on with a brush, or rag, and wipe it carefully off with a very dry and warm rag. The thin coat of paraffine left adhering to the metal after this process will notbe perceptible to the eye ; being solid, it does not leave the greasy feeling that remains when oil or tallow has been used ; it does not affect in the slightest degree the colour of the object ; and we think it would prove excellent for the pro- tection of a fine gun-barrel from the action of a damp and saline atmosphere. POTATO PUFF.-Take cold roast meat beef, or mutton, or veal and ham together clear from gristle, cut small, and season with pepper and salt, and cut pickles, if liked ; boil and mash some potatoes, make them into a paste with an egg, and roll out, dredg- ...

GEORGICS. BOOK I.—continued. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 16 April 1873

G B O ' E. G I C S. BOOK i.-continued. Now sing we stormy stars, when Autumn weighs The year, and adds to nights, and shortens days, And suns declining shine with feeble rays ; What cares must then attend the willing swain : Or when the low'ring spring, with lavisli rain, Beats down the slender stem and bearded grain, While yet the head is green, or, lightly swell'd With milky moisture, overlooks the field. Ev'n when the iarrner, now secure of fear, Bends in the swains to spoil the fiuish'd year, Ev'n while the reaper fills his greedy hands, And binds the golden sheaves in brittle bauds, Oft have I seen a sudden storm arise, From all the warring winds that sweep the skies : The heavy harvest from the root is tom, And, whirl'd aloft, the lighter stubble borne : With such a force the flying rack is driv'n, And such a winter wears the face of heav'n : And oft whole sheets descend of sluicy rain, Suck'd by the spongy clouds from off the main : The lofty skies at once came pouring down, ...

THE PURIFICATION OF SHIPS' HOLDS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 16 April 1873

THE PURIFICATION OF SHIPS' HOLDS. THE foUôwing extract from the British Trade ' Journal of an experiment,.made on board H. M. S.

M. S. Vigilant. The ventilator and the pump are identical in principle ; but, inasmuch as the former acts upon air and the latter upon water, they are different in points of detail, and are wholly separate and distinct instru- ments, either of which might be applied to a ship without the other. Each cönsists'of two vertical cylinders, placed on either side of the ship, and connected togeth...

STOCK REPORT. THE report of Mr. Acting-chief Inspector, Yeo, oni the live stock of New South Wales 'for the year 1871-2 is a clear and concise, yet lull and valuable, statement of their con- dition and numbers. It appears by it, that we have now, December 1872, 17,878,696 sheèp-being an increase of 1,107,684 over 1871.

DESTRUCTIVE FIRE IN MELBOURNE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 16 April 1873

DESTRUCTIVE EIRE IN MELBOURNE. One of the largest, if not the largest fire, that was ever known in the colony occurred on March 3, in Flitidcrs-lanc, when the store of Messrs. Connell, Watson and Hogarth, the well known wholesale grocers, was completely gutted. Thc building was a substantial bluestone erection of three stories, in addition to thc cellarage, each story being about 12 feet in height, and the w.ills were of extra thickness. Thc different stories were supported by iron columns, but the joists, beams, and floors were of wood. Thc building contained two bonded stores and two free stores. Thc bonded stores were situated in the upper story and in the back part of the cellarage, which was divided from the front portion of the building by a double iron partition. In thc lower bond was stored a large quantity of balk spirit and 'bottled beer, while in the upper-bond on the top story were stowed about 5000 cases 1 (JliEAT FUIE AT MESSllÖ. CONNELL, WATSON Ai\U.

ALL FOOLS' DAY. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 16 April 1873

ALL FOOLS' DAY. THE custom of making April fools on the first day of this month is exceedingly old as well as general. Both Maurice and Colonel Pearce have shown that it prevailed in India; and the latter says that it forms a part of the Ililli Festival. "Duringthe Nilli, when mirth and festivity reign among the Hindoos of every class, one subject of diversion is to send people on errands aud expeditions that are to end in disappointment, and raise a laugh at the expense of the person sent. The Ililli is always in March, and the last day is the general holiday. I have never yet heard any account of the origin of this English custom ; but it is unquestionably very ancient, and is still kept up even in great towns, though less in them than in the country. With us it is chiefly confined to the lower class of people, but in India high and low join in it ; and the late Sourajah Doulah, I am told, was very fond of making Ililli fools, though he was a mussulman of the bigest rank. They car...

MRS. GOURLAY'S EXHIBITION ROOMS.; ! THE influx of visitors, which the Baster Holidays have drawn into Sydney, will I doubtless help to swell the usual attendance at this popular place of amusement, and, cer - tainly, the proprietors are not backward in I catering for their patrons. At this exhibition a large number of attractions have been gradually accumulating, and over and above these are now added-the Mummy, the ludi- crous Scotch Dwarfs, a collection of South Sea Island curiosities, and the Alligator Museum, Big Ben äad Family, which was recently exhibited as a "show" in itself. With these heaped up venders it can scarcely be possible for Mrs: Gourlay to fail in interesting her visitors, while even old patrons of this favourite evening promenade will find something new witU which to amuse themselves.

SPENCER'S ROYAL POLYTECHNIC. , THTS amusing gallery of mechanical ingenuity, still continues to attract large numbers of visitors. Among the many rare and curious things which Mr. Spencer has gathered into one museum, there are not a few which will bear repeated visits of inspection ; but alive to the fact that "novelty,is charming," the pi'oprietor is always on the alert to supple-, ment his exhibition with some fresh curiosity or wondrous piece of automata. The moving figures, the singing bird, the exquisite minia- . ture wax-works, and the life size tableau of the finding of Dr. "Livingstone, together with the marvels óf glass-working, and the charms of music, combine to make up a rational and pleasurable evening's amusement.

RAWORTH'S WATER-COLOUR, EXHIBITION. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 16 April 1873

RAWORTH'S WATER-COLOUR, EXHI- BITION. WE desire to call the attention of art students1,, and all lovers of illustration, to the fact that this admirable collection is still open free to the public. Mr. Raworth, who is an indefati- gable searcher up and reproducer of the beau; tiful, has supplemented his New Zealand sketches, with some very effective expositions of our own peculiar scenery, and the visitor to his studio will either. be .delighted witli some well-known and favourite haunt transl f erred to paper, or will find himself enraptured, with' some lovely bit of landscape, of the existence and proximity of which he never dreamed. We haye more than once called attention to this exhibition, because we con- sider it asimple act of justice to Mr. Raworth that his power in landscape painting should become known. We have not space in which to speak in more than general terms, but where the artist affords such facilities for the, inspection of his work, bur province is simply to invi...

BREECH-LOADING ORDNANCE OF THE MIDDLE AGES. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 16 April 1873

BREECH-LOADING ORDNANCE OF THE MIDDLE AGES. RECENTLY a most interesting consignment arrived at tke Royal Arsenal, Woolwich. It consisted of three bronze guns, manufactured evidently at an exceedingly early date, al- though in a most perfect state of preservation as regarded the various parts, and which were forwarded from Portsmouth by Admiral Milne, to whom they had been sent in tran- sit from Rhodes by Her Britannic Majesty's consul. We understand that a considerable amount of óorrespondence has taken place with reference to these and some other guns of a like nature, which were accidentally discovered by a diver at the bottom of the sea near Rhodes, and were at the time being sold for the sake of the metal which was contained in them, with a view of melting them down. Fortunately, however, this was arrested in time. These curious speci- mens of warlike constructive art are supposed to belong to a period anterior even to the date of the battle of Cressy, when guns are said to have...

THE ODDITIES OF MUSICIANS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 16 April 1873

THE ODDITIES OP MUSICIANS. LULL Y laboured like a feeble amateur. He sat down at the piauo with his snuff-box, and sang and played till, by means of trying here and there, up and down, he fancied he had discovered the most suitable melody. This discovery he then communicated to some subordinate, who wrote down the di- rection, and that was the end of it. Sarti required a large, dark room, even at night but feebly lighted ; his musical ideas came to him only in the stillness of the night. Of Spontini, too, we somewhere read that he was able to compose only in the dark. Cimarosa wanted noise about him ; he liked best to work in merry company. Salerli, to excite his fancy, strolled about in the most frequented streets, eating bonbons, with pencil add paper in his hand, to be ready when occasion offered. Paer composed, chatted, scolded, and disputed, all in one. Sacchini felt himself incapable of getting a melody unless he was with his lady-love, and had his little kittens about him. Al...

MATRIMONY. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 16 April 1873

MATRIMONY. YES, I am Mrs. James Merlaus, and I sin- cerely wish I was Anne Marie Stubbs, spinster, with nothing but my own whims and humours to trouble me. Here am I, a comparatively young woman, with ten children. There is the baby now, screaming as if five hundred needles had been run into him. People talk -about the comfort of a baby ; queer idea of <eomfort such persons have ; perhaps they would think purgatory comfortable. Why, I never have one moment's freedom from -anxiety, except when he is in my arms fast asleep ; not always then, for if his cheeks looked a little redder than usual, I feel sure that a fever is coming on ; or if his breathing .seems slightly irregular, I am perfectly con- fident that it is the commencement of croup, that bugbear of all young mothers. If he is cn the floor he sticks everything he can find into his mouth. I just took out two carpet tacks, and if he could only succeed in swal- lowing the hammer his happiness would be perfect.

A FEW WORDS ABOUT THE CAT. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 16 April 1873

A FEW WORDS ABOUT THE CAT THE domestic cat is a sociable and engaging .creature, her movements are extremely grace- ful, and she is equally nimble, frolicsome, .and affectionate. No animal is more gay and vivacious, or more devotedly attached to the ¿orne that shelters her, however humble or "unattractive it may be. Some of our readers are not perhaps aware that below London Bridge, a portion of the Thames has long been called the Pool. No one could realize in that spot the justness of the poet, when, apostro- phising the ancient river, he designates it as one "that flowQth amid meads and flowers," for the waters are black as Styx, because there coal vessels discharge their cargoes into '.fearges moored alongside of them. While this is going on, barges lie in " tiers," or roads, having no communication with the shore. It is scarcely possible to imagine less enviable habitations for cleanly animals that delight in liberty, yet numerous cats inhabit those black barges, and are called ...
