Oäst-Steel Boilers. TOE USO of steel in the manufaturo of steam boilers is of comparatively recent date, and the relative advan tage, if any, over orclinary iron boilers, except on tho score of their less -weight, has hardly yet been satis factorily determined, We have before us perhaps tho latest information bearing on this subject, being tho. results of an important series of experiments made recently, at tho rolling mills of Messrs.

Adulteration of Seeds. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 12 February 1870

Adulteration of Seedä. IN tho course of legislation in tho Houso of Com mons, arising out of thc introduction of a bill by Mr. Welby, for preventing tho adulteration of seeds, some strange disclosures have been made as to tho unblush ing frauds carried on in tho trado in tho old country. And it is felt, painfully felt, that the mischief is scarcely to be prevented by legislation, for the line between intentional adulteration and unavoidable im purities cannot be drawn. That wilful adulteration is carried on by tho mixing of living seed with seed that has been killed by artificial means i. c. by kiln-drying, is unhappily too apparent, for Mr. Welby, whose bill was referred to a select commitioo, quotod tho follow ing letter (previously published in Professor Burk man's "Scionco and ¿Practice of Farm Cultivation,") to show the regular system to which the practice has been reduced :-" Southampton, April 27th, 1860.

IN tue mountains and woods of Transylvania you still find a variety bf large game now scarcely to be mot with in the small space anywhere in Eurolie. Its home is the Alpine range wliioh surrounds tho country on three sides, especially some of tho moro elevated groups in the south and in tho north-east. There you still occasionally meet with the lynx, you may have fair chamois hunting, you may shoot gigantic stags, several varieties of bears, plenty of wolves, and fine wild boars. But-it is wild sports on those heights, entailing a good deal of camping out and roughing it, and as, with the exception of tho ohamois, tho game comes down in autumn to tho lower mountain spacos, none hut tho most passionate sportsmen undertake these summer ex peditions in the mountains, which, while more fatigu ing, do not reward you always so surely for your trouble as the periodical autumnal hunts in the lower moun tain spaces, where hunts may be more ...

It represented rather a stout lady ; dork Drown hair done up in braids and hanging low on the nock ; tho collar was white and narrow, and a breastpin ; right hand resting on table, and riding gloves on; earrings; forehead high, and features regular.
