PRINCIPLES 0F CATTLE BREEDING. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 13 April 1857

PRINCIPLE 0p CATTLE BßEEDING. . ¿reeding of domestic animals, with a Jiew i iroprovement.may be said to be found- er on nature's established law, that like begets 1 ; and this axiom applies not only to the Pr oduction of the qualities of external form and utillity, but to the constitutional vigour and the predisposition to disease. This max- im, however, is only true in part, as there is a constant tendency to change, arising from a variety of causes, such, as living in a different climate or on a different kind of food,as above stated. The selection and management of the parents, and the treatment of the progeny, al- so have their influence ; but these may be re- garded as the chief causes in the operation, notwithstanding there are others, which are employed to devolope and establish the desired quality and form. "In order to improve a racj of animals, there aro two modes advocated and practised by Weders-one commonly called the in-and» in system and the others '(.hat of 'crossing...

Titi* effect, we are informed.will be perfectly astounding and will puzzle, while it will amaze the spectators. The drama itself is of a truly romantic character, and Mr. Warner as the double bmther has a part assigned to him,--to which he will, as usual, do ample justice. The piece ii well cast and will be' produced,as we have already intimated, with much magnificence, no pains having been spared to ren- der it worthy ol the publie appreciation. . We may add, that as far as regards the mure, arrangements have been nude to introduce sterling overtures, and compositions of a first-rate charac- ter.
