Varieties [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 7 November 1846

varietese . -o LAvosrna.-.Itis'not true that'Prometheus stole out fire, but the laughter of gods, to deify our clay, and, in the abundance of our merriment, to make us reasonable creatures. Have you ever considered, sir, what man would be destitute of the ennobling 'faculty of laughter ? Why, sir, laughter .is to the face of man what sinovia, I think anatomists call it, is to his joints-it oils, and lubricates, and makes the human countenance divine. Without it our facesawould have been. rigid, hyena-like; the ini quities .of our hearts, with no sweet antidote to work upon them, would have made the face of the best among us a horrid,.husky thing, with too sullen, hungry, cruel lights at the-top, for forehead would then have gone out of .fashion, and a car vernous hole below the nose. Think of a babe without laughter; as it is its first inthlligence:.! The creature shows the divinity of its origin and end by smiling upon us; yes, smiles are it first talk with the world-smiles the fir...

RENEWAL OF TRANSPORTATION.—THE LAND QUESTION.—IMMIGRATION. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 7 November 1846

RENEWAL OF TRANSPORTATION. -THE LAND QUESTION.-IMMIGRATION. (From the Maitland Mercury.) The demand for labour, and the want of funds to provide it, are the main arguments relied on-by those who advocate the renewal of transportation. We have already shown that as regards the means for introducing labourers, the colony is at present in a better position than it has been for the last five years; and we now proceed to point out briefly a very simple and natural mode of increasing those means, and at the same time of inducing voluntary immigration. The Imperial Parliament has made a permanent appropriation of our crown land revenue to the public uses of the colony;.and has also provided that at least one-half of this amount shall be ex pended on immigration. The Act, however, which secures this revenue to us, does, unfortunately, also enact that we shall not derive any benefit from it. It places an impracticable price upon our waste lands, and thus dries- up the most fruitful and safe ...

New Zealand. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 7 November 1846

fsts eraratlb. -o We have received a file of New Zealand papers to the beginning of October'; but we do not observe anything of importance in them. Everything appeared to be quiet. The Governor had been severely indisposed, but at our latest date was recovering. The following is the only extract of any interest that we have observed : - WELLINOTON. --\We are not in possession of any recent intelligence from Cook's Straits, but the an nexed portion of a letter, from the correspondent of one of our friends may be read with interest, though the news it contains is somewhat old. The writer does not mention the fact that the barracks in course of erection at Wellington are to be paid for out of the colonial revenue. The contemplated expenditure for Public Works for the ensuing year, at WVel lington is, we lelieve, somewhere about 4001. DEAR-- , I thought a few lines might interest you, so I will treat you to a few in the way of news. The Government Brig has no sinecure down hero, I can t...

fort tUilUp. -o - Tus WASTEi LANDS OF Trt CaowN.-Sir Charles stands a fair chance of being inundated with peti titions from the Town Council of Melbourne. Amongst others with which His Excellency will Ie honoured is one praying that the Waste Lands of the Crown, within the township of Melbourne, may be placed at the disposal of the Corporation for the benefit of the inhabitants, for the depasturing of stock, the felling of timber, the making of bricks, and the removal. of loam and gravel. Should this boon be granted, the revenue derivable from the depasturage of stock alone will, it is calculated, ex. recd or certainly amount to 401. per square mile, and as by somewhat exceeding the limits of the town an area of no less than twenty-five square miles could readily be obtained, here is an income at once of a thousand pounds per annum. The great dill culty whi Is arises is in adopting such a plan that the land shall be productive of general benefit, and not be monopolised by individual...

Itttsb Elxtrarte. -0--- ' UsEs OF SALT.-A correspondent in the,6iorine Chronicle quotes a letter received from a gentleman in the United States, who is an extensive farmer there, in which it is shown that salt applied to land previous to being ploughed for potato setting las the very best effect. Having sulfered a loss of Ihe greater portion of a crop in 184~, he, in the spring of 1845, determined to attempt the growth of an other crop from the same field. He accordingly; before ploughing, had a hundred and a halt weight, of medium coarse salt per acre spread broadcast, and then left it one or two weeks, that it might dis solve and mix with the soil. The usual method of culture was then pursued, and a fair crop of excel lent quality was obtained, not a diseased potalto being found when they were got up at harvest time, nor had there been one discovered up to the 28th of Marchl, 184,0. This (adds the writer) makes three well authenticated cases of the remedial agency of salt, and eve...
