SPENCER'S ROYAL POLYTECHNIC. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 13 May 1873

SPENCER'S ROYAL POLYTECHNIC: MR. SPENCER is not behindhand in providing amusement for his patrous-and the crowded state of his rooms during the recent holidays I testified that his efforts were well appreciated. I His latest novelty is a Grand Bicycle Race by r steam ; which is just introduced-and is likely to prove a great attraction. A patent has been taken out for an appa- ratus for basting food while cooking. Sulphuretted hydrogen gas may be made by boiling paraffin and sulphur together in a flask. It is as well to remember that " fruit syrups," so called, seldom contain any fruit juice, but are flavoured with chemical pro- ductions. Fermentation is entirely arrested (accord- ing to M. Picot) by silicate of soda, even when present in but small quantity. This is the case with lactic and alcoholic, as well as putrid fermentation. FREEDOM.-None can love freedom heartily but good men ; the rest love not freedom, but license, which never hath more scope than under tyrants. Hence it i...

HORSES FOR INDIA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 13 May 1873

HORSES FOR INDIA. THE following important intimation from India will be read with great satisfaction by all parties taking an interest in horse stock. We believe that New South Wales can yet meet, with safety to the reputation of her horse stock, the proffered competition, al- though there is little doubt that her horse stock-except the racing breed-has greatly deteriorated for some years past, yet enough are left of the true old sort from which to select the required number, if only care and judgment be exercised in the choice. The prizes offered are handsome, and the prices tor the artillery horses, 500 rupees or £50 each, and 600 rupees or £60 for cavalry remounts, ought to pay. If the animals sent prove good and of the right sort, suitable to the work and climate, a fine market will be established, and it becomes a national ques- tion, of present and future benefit-to this country, that the very best that we can produce of the right stamp shoiild ouly be permitted to be sent; an...

THE DEVIL'S BOOT. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 13 May 1873

THE DEVIL'S BOOT. THE picturesque character of the scenery in the neighbourhood of the city of Nelson, in New Zealand, cannot but be attractive to the tourist, but in one instance astonishment and wonder usurp the place of admiration. " In this portion of the province stupendous rocks form not an unimportant adjunct to the beauty of the landscape. In the middle of a wooded glade, rich with an undergrowth of those luxuriant ferns for which New Zealand is so famous, stands boldly out a high mass of stone, closely resembling a mammoth boot, with the high tapering heel now so much in vogue with those who make themselves martyrs to fashion at the expense of ease and comfort. The instep is well and clearly defined, though partially covered by the brushwood which has taken root in the soil that, doubtless, for numbers of years, has found a resting place on that portion of the stone. By common consent, the curiosity has been named "The Devil's Boot," but whether the formal nomenclature has ...

THE LIVE AND CARCASE WEIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 13 May 1873

THE LIVE AND CARCASE WEIGHT. IT ia to be regretted that a record of the live weight, with the carcase weight, and that of the inside fat and offal, of the fat animals sold from the Exhibition grounds and slaughtered in Sydney, has uot' been i secured and recorded by the Agricultural Society. The relative proportions of weight to size, quality and amount of meat to bone, proportion of inside fat and offal of each, breed could thus have been ascertained ; and the relative value of the grasses and several climates for feeding, to the most advantage, the different breeds of our cattle, determined ; as, also, the best breed to encourage for growth in the different districts. Such a record of the result of each rival breed, with the prices obtained for them, would prove their estimation in market properties and true value, and would soon decide which is the beast for our home markets. We have taken great trouble in ascertaining, as far as practicable, the carcase weight, quality, and. con...

THE VOLUNTEER CAMP AT RICHMOND. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 13 May 1873

THE VOLUNTEER CAMP AT RICH- MOND. THE encampment of the New South Wales volunteers, which was held during the Easter Holidays on Ham Common, at Richmond, was, notwithstanding the adverse weather, a suc- cess. . The first detachment of volunteers took possession of the ground on the 10th April, since which day until the breaking tip of the encampment on the 14th April, there was a continuity of unfavourable weather. The greater proportion of the men .were on the ground on Good Friday, on the afternoon of which day a flying party of artillery was detatched, and a mimic war upon a small scale was essayed. On Saturday, the 12th April, the camp was visited by a large number of persons, attracted no doubt "by the circumstance of His Excellency Sir Hercules Robinson and Mr. Du Cane, the Governor of Tasmania, having expressed their intention of inspecting the men. The two Governors appeared on the scene, and the troops marched past them in good mili- tary style. About three o'clock a party ...

THE EXHIBITION. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 13 May 1873

THE EXHIBITION. SINCE the initiation of Industrial Exhibitions (1851) by H. Pt. H. the Prince Consort, their utility has become more fully recognised, year by year, until not only every civilised nation of importance, but also every colony of any note, has taken up the idea. In New South : Wales, the Agricultural Society's Annual Show has always, since its institution, been looked forward to with, very great interest, and while few haye been marked with that ecldt which signalised the opening of the new building. The Exhibi- tion which has just closed has undoubtedly proved a very great success, As the inten- tion of the Society is primarily tb foster the grand pursuit of Agriculture, and the thou- sand and'one issues which spring therefrom, it is only to be expected that most of the exhibits should be of an agricultural nature. But there are always other attractions in I äddition, so that those who do not take a special interest in the prize points bf a bull, or the merits of a sam...

PORTRAIT OF J. P. W. KRAUSS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 13 May 1873

PORTRAIT OF J. P. W. KRAUSS. TN this issue we give a likeness'of this indi- vidual, who is at present ihgcustody for the crimes recently perpetrated on hoard the ship Rifleman, during her voyage from Lon- don to Sydney. With the horrible particu- lars, so far as they have been elicited, the public mind is already too familiar, and the barest details will suffice. It appears that on the morning of the 16th of March last, when the ship was in latitude 31*33 S., and longitude 34*1 W., Krauss (who was steward of the vessel) came on deck, and desired the chief officer, Mr. George Morgan, to go into the captain's cabin, as the latter wished to speak with him. Mr. Morgan at once de- scended-in the dark-and on reaching the cabin received a murderous blow with a "channel-plate bolt." Grappling with his as- sailant, he called for assistance, and on the the arrival of the boatswain a shot was fired by the person he had secured, which entered the neck of the boatswain. A second shot was fired, ...

RAWORTH'S WATER-COLOUR ART UNION. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 13 May 1873

RAWORTH'S WATER-COLOUR ART UNION. THE prizes were drawn for in the Art-union about a fortnight ago. All passed off in a very satisfactory manner, Mr. D. S. Hicks, public-school inspector, being the fortunate recipient of the first prize-a magnificent painting of a portion of Middle Harbour J Mr. Geo. Kenyon, of this city, obtained the two beautiful pictures constituting the second prize. The remaining thirty-eight paintings fell to the lot chiefly of Sydney residents - among whose names we recognize several familiar as supporters of fine art. Mr Ra- worth has rearranged the large balance of his pictures-including some very large and beautiful landscapes of New South Wales scenery-and the rooms are now open for inspection gratuitously to those who delight in picture galleries.

GOURLAY'S VARIETY EXHIBITION. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 13 May 1873

GOUPILAY'S VARIETY EXHIBITION. DUKING the late festive season, these at- tractive rooms have been filled to overflow- ing, à result not surprising when Ave notice the number and variety of the attractions. A new stage has been erected, on which the Gourlay Family-in their songs, duets, and character pieces, can be seen and heard to better advantage. The alligator museum is still a source of attraction to the scientific and curious, and is undoubtedly a collection 'far better in an exhibition hall than roaming the creek banks on which they earned such a terrible notoriety before their capture. The mummy, too,-is an interesting specimen, iii his own dry way, and is a subject likely to set people thinking. The diorama, and the wax figures, and Other pleasant features of the exhibition, serve to make up a very attractive entertain- ment.

WINE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 13 May 1873

WINE. A GRISÂT deal has been said and written about Pasteur's wine heating process, and it has been difficult to determine what value to put upon the testimony of those who have tried it. Professor Neubauer, of WisbadeD, publishes a note of some experiments con- ducted by himself, which deserves to be read with attention. He says that the tannie acid aud extractive stuff of red wine precipitates most of the albuminous constituency of the wines, so that when the wine is heated it does not thicken or become milky. In his experiments he carefully corked the wine and covered the corks with parchment paper, and warmed the bottles over a water bath for half-an-hour, from 60 to 65 degrees, equal from 140 to 150° Fahrenheit. Bottles of wine of the same sort, heated and in natural condition, properly labelled, were stored in his cellar ; and on the occasion of the meeting of a club in Wisbaden numerous specimens were produced for trial. It was unanimously resolved at this meeting :-" That th...

GEORGICS. BOOK II. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 13 May 1873

GB0E6ICS. BOOK II. The subject of the following book is planting; in handling of which argument the poet shows all the different methods of raising trees, describes their variety, and gives rules for the management of each in particular. He then points out tho soils in which the several plants thrive best, and thence takes occasion to run out into the praises of Italy ; after which, he gives some directions for discovering the nature of every soil, prescribes rules for the dressing of vines, olives, &c, and concludes tha Georgie with a panegyric on a country life. THUS far of tillage, and of heav'nly signs : Now sing, my muse, the growth of gen'rous vines, The shady groves, the woodland progeny, And the slow product of Minerva's tree. Great father Bacchus ( to my song repair ; For clust'ring grapes are thy peculiar care : s For thee, large bunches load the bending vine ; And the last blessings of the year are thine. To thee his joys the jolly Autumn owes, When the fermenting...

Chapters on Common Things HOPS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 13 May 1873

Chapters on Common Wbinga HOPS. It is a rare treat to wander at the season for hop-picking amongtherichly-scented fields in the southern counties of England, and par- ticularly Kent : When the plants are laden with beautiful bloom, And the air breathes around in its rich perfume ; ' And the village reapers exultingly come To gather the fruits of their harvest home. More graceful the hop than the far-fam'd vine, More tenderly, too, doth its tendrils twine, And there like the spirit of all sweet flowers, The peasant girl glides through its fairy bowers ; And far and near, With accent clear, The hop-picker's song salutes the glad ear ; The old and the young Unite in the throng, And echo re-echoes their jocund eong. The hop-picking time is a time of glee, So merrily, merrily, now sing we ; For the bloom of the hop is the secret spell Of the bright pale ale that is lov'd so well. So gather it quickly with tender care, And off to the waggons tho treasure bear. The hop-vine, the humulus lu...

MAN AND THE INDUSTRIAL ARTS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 13 May 1873

MAN AND THE INDUSTRIAL ARTS. THE Industrial Arts are necessary arts. The most degraded savage must practise them, and the most civilised genius cannot dispense with them. Whatever be our gifts of intel- lect or fortune, we cannot avoid being hungry, and thirsty, and cold, and weary every day ; and we must fight for our lives against the hunger, and thirst, and cold, and weariness, which wage an unceasing war against us. But though the Industrial Arts are common, they are not ignoble arts. They minister, indeed, to those physical wants which we share with the lower animals, . but we are raised above them as much by being indus- trial as by being aesthetic artists. We are the former in virtue of our superior intellect, as we are the latter in virtue of our superior imagination. Let me ask your attention to this point. It is with every-day life, and every-day cares, that the Industrial Arts have to do ; with man, not as "a little lower than the angels," but "as crushed before the moth,...

NOUMEA, NEW CALEDONIA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 13 May 1873

NOUMEA, NEW CALEDONIA. The island of New Caledonia, the principal dependency cf the French Government in the Pacific Ocean, is situated between 20 deg. 10 min. and 22 deg. 26 min. south latitude, and between 161 deg. 35 min. and 164 deg. 35 min. east longitude. It was discovered by Captain Cook in the year 1774, and the physical features of the country a seen from the sea reminding the English navigator of Scotland, he gave it the name which it now bears. Captain Cook attempted to sail round the island,- but his progress being barred by the numerous reefs which existed, and NOUMEA, CAPIT AL': OP NEW CALE D O N I A. the Tränt of the necessary time prevented him from following up his exploration." The result of Cook's labors was, however, taken advantage of by the French admiral, D'En trecasteaux, who fully explored the island and planted the standard of his Government upon it in the year 1853. New Caledonia, which is about 216 miles long and about 35 in breadth, is surrounded by a re...
