Selections Grabe and Gap. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 8 June 1872

Selections ëvnbt anti <Bny. THE EARTH-BATH.-One of the quackeries of Old Pall-mall late in the last century was earth-bathing, which the notorious quack, Dr. Graham, recommended for the cure of certain diseases, and undertook to sanction by his own practice. During one hour every day he admitted spectators, first at a guinea and subsequently at one shilling a head, to view him and the "Goddess of Health" buried naked in the ground to. their chins. It is curious to find this earth-bath used as , a remedy for drunkenness by the Irish rebel Shane O'Neill, in Elizabeth's days : "Subtle and crafty he was, especially in the morning; but in the residue of the day very uncertain and unstable, and much given to excessive gulping and surfeiting. And, albeit he had most commonly two hundred tuns of wine in his cellar at Dundrun, and had his full fill thereof, yet he was never satisfied till he had swallowed up marvellous great quanti- ties of usquebah, or aqua vitae of that country ...

Types of Colonial Life. THE BULLOCK DRIVER. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 8 June 1872

&¡>pes of Colonial %\îu THE BULLOCK DRIVER. BY F. S. WILSON. AMONG the many characters which stand forth as " types of colonial life," there is one which is pre-eminently distinct-the Bullock Driver. In all other countries, where sheep are watched, and oxen are tended, there will be shepherds and herdsmen, of which, doubt- less, the Australian shepherd and stockman will be varieties ; but if you wish to look for a character of truly indigenous colonial growth, you must seek for it in the bullock driver. In a country such as this is-or rather was -the introduction of cattle as draught ani- mals was almost a necessity. Their marvel- lous increase, even in the early days of the colony, made them easily attainable, when horses were far above the means of the poorer settlers ; and, added to this, their strength in dragging heayily-loaded drays over roads-if roads they could be called-which bade defiance to horse carriage, and their endur- ance, when feed and water were scarce,...

LOST IN AN AMERICAN FOREST. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 8 June 1872

LOST IN AN AMERICAN FOREST. I WAS lost, and had been for some hours. Pinding nothing that I remembered having seen before, I sadly retraced my steps. As I reached the outskirts of the forest, a clear, musical, and sonorous note rang through its depths, like the ironical voice of an evil spirit. My feelings, on hearing this unex- pected call, I never can forget. I know not what superstitious idea crossed my mind, and caused the blood to rush hurriedly through my veins ; but I determined not to be misled a second time, and continued my course without even thinking of using my gun against the invisible world which seemed to make a trial of its power over me by awakening, at different points, the echoes of its delusive melody. With some difficulty I regained my starting point. Par from being discouraged by the want of success attending my first effort, I found myself more calm and ?collected than before. Reflection had strengthened my courage, by giving me con- fidence in the success of...

Literature. THE MYSTERY AND THE DREAM. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 8 June 1872

-literature* THE MYSTERY AND THE DREAM. AT the present time when society in the colony has just been horrified by the dis- covery that two of the most diabolical murders recorded in human history have been committed at the very thresholds of the metropolis, the dark story which I am about to re-tell may have a significant interest for those readers of the Illustrated Sydney News who have faith in the old adage, " Murder will out." It will be as well, how- ever, to suppress the real names of the dramatis persono-the more so, because it is very possible that there are people yet living who would be aggrieved if the occu- j pants of certain graves were uncoffined and set before the public in their naked identity. But, at the same time, it would be altogether out of place to keep back, or colour, any of the incidents-indeed it would be absolutely wrong to do so, seeing that the drama, in its entirety, is preserved in the criminal records of a great neighbouring colony. Acting, then, und...

Original Poetry. A PRAYER. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 8 June 1872

Anginal poetry A PRAYER. . THRO? life's dark and winding way, When the world's o'erwhelming cares Steep my soul in blank dismay, When my doubting heart despairs, - Jesus ! Saviour ! hear my pray'rs ! When my soul would seek the light, By this carnal shell denied, . When it fain would see aright That true path where it would bide, Jesus ! Saviour ! be my guide ! When, thus blinded, on my way, I would break from sin's dark thrall, Should I e'er be led astray Should 1 ever trembling fall, Jesus ! Saviour ! me recall ! When, at length, this journey o'er, When from this its earthly dome, Free, my soul would gladly soar, And 'mid endless ether roam, Jesus ! Saviour ! guide me home ! WM. PORTER. Narrabri.

THE LARGEST VINE IN THE WORLD. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 8 June 1872

THE LARGEST VINE IN THE WORLD. i GROWN from a love token, a pretty example to follow. It is planted ia Spanish Cali [ fornia, atMontreits, hear Santa .Barbara. : "The planter of the vine was Donna Mar- cellina Feliz de Dominguez, of the'earliest expedition to Sonora, before 1778." Thia now famous vine, about seventy years since, wa3 the riding whip of this Spanish lady, presented her by her lover, which, after the ride, was planted by her, and has now de- veloped into that grand memento of love, the largest and most famous vine in the world. Beside the old vine is an offspring, only twelve years old, fast approaching the dimensions of its parent, and fully as prolific. Under the genial brauches-of this youthful vine is a large dancing floor where, according to the custom of the Spaniards on Sabbath days and Sabbath. evenings, are performed the love-dances of a new generation of Span- ish lads and lasses in their fandangoes, en- livened by the voluptuous swells of music and free drau...

A HOUSEHOLD REMEDY. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 8 June 1872

A HOUSEHOLD REMEDY. THE above is the title given to an ointment prepared and introduced by Dr. W. Moore, of 131, Elizabeth-street. It Í3 a handy remedy for many painful hurts, such as burns, scalds, bruises, corns, &c, and is equally useful to the animal race, in the case of collar and saddle galls, &c. We commend it to the notice of residents in the bush es- pecially, where it is not always easy to pro- cure medical advice. "THE INVESTOR'S GUIDE" is the title of a new periodical, to be published by Messrs. Thatcher and Hunt. It is intended to be a handy and accurate medium for supplying information as to all companies which have been floated up to the 1st June, their locali- ties, acres, capitals, calls, managers, brokers, &c, and we may confidently predict that it will be much sought after by those who do business in mining matters. A New Albany lover, knowing a savage dog was kept on the premises by his sweet- heart's father, took an equally ferocious cur ...

TAMBAROORA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 8 June 1872

TAMBAROORA. At the commencement of the rash to Hawkins' Hill we gave a ?ketch of the goldfield in that locality, and in this number we give engravings of the township of Tambaroora itself, and a scene in Clarke-street, one of the principal thoroughfares thereof. Since oar engraving of Hawkins' Hill the progress of mining in this locality has steadily gone ahead, and at last New South Wales has a goldfield second to none in Australia for the richness of its yields, but time alone can solve the problem of its extent. Tambaroora is a postal township in the electoral and police districts of Wellington, situated on the Tambaroora Creek, an auriferous tributary of the Macquarie River, rising in and flowing through the goldfield to which it gives its name. The district is very moun- tainous, and almost entirely unfit for agriculture, except to the east, where small portions are occupied by settlers who combine agricultural with pastoral pursuits. The popu- lation of the town is about 1000,...

Scientific [?]ottings. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 8 June 1872

Stimmt Sotttngsu TELEGRAPHIC REPORTING.-A novel and successful experiment in telegraphic report- ing was made in connection with the Oxford and Cambridge boat-race, which has proved to be one of the most interesting circum-1 stances of the occasion. In order to trans- mit a description of the race as it was rowed, arrangements were made hy the proprietor of the Central Neios to pay out a cable from one I of the steamers which followed the racing boats. Permission to place this cable, and pay it out from the Cambridge steamboat was readily accorded by Mr. Goldie. There is no novelty in telegraphing through cables ' as they are being paid out, but there is no precedent for performing such a work at the pace of the racing-boats. Moreover, what- ever happened to the cable, a stoppage of the boat during the race was impossible, and therefore the most perfect arrangements were necessary to obtain success. These arranger | ments, as far as the cable was concerned, were carried out by the T...

ST. XAVIER'S COLLEGE, KEW. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 8 June 1872

ST. XAVIER'S COLLEGE, KEW. We present our readers in this number-with a view of the pro- posed new Jesuit college at Kew. The site chosen is about the best and most commanding that could be selected. Standing on an elevation the entire o! Melbourne and suburbs will show aa one vast panorama, and impress visitors with a grand idea of the magnitude of the rising city. With their accustomed taste, and appreciation of the fine arts, the reverend gentlemen seen determined that the building should exhibit externally architectural merit of no mean order, avoiding altogether the meretricious effect produced by lavish ' decoration. To carry out that idea their architect, Mr. T. A. Kelly, of Elizibeth-sfcreet, has lent a helping hand, and we can safely say that for classic and. chaste beauty there will not be either in this or the elder hemisphere a collegiate structure reflecting more credit on those who may be connected with it. The style selected ig purely classic, such as is to be found i...

FORCE IN THE FIELD LOST. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 8 June 1872

FORCE IN THE FIELD LOST. THE following remarks on the above subject are so true, so valuable, and important, that all farmers should read them : Shallow cultivation is one of the most per- fect contrivances for waste of force that could be invented. Supposing you purchase a coal- mine with five or six seams of good coal, one on the top of the other, and could only be persuaded'to work the upper seam? But this is virtually what thousands of culti- vators are doing. Year after year they go on and on, scratching the surface to the same depth. They seem positively afraid of the good pan that has slumbered for ages in the bottom of your furrows. No matter how rich the soil below, the pan must not be broken. The upheaving and^overthrowing of this idol is the grandest revolution that has ever been effected in agriculture. This deepening of the tilth, however, should proceed with caution. First loosen, then enrich, next invert, and finally incor- porate the under with the upper soil. Some ....

At an early hour the approaches to the landing-place were thronged with hurrying crowds of people, anxious to witness the ceremony.

NEW ZEALAND STEEL. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 8 June 1872

NEW ZEALAND STEEL. Now that mineral development is exciting so much attention, the following paragraph, clipped from an old Australian periodical, may prove interesting : Ever since the settlement of New Zealand hy Europeans, their attention has been daily called to the peculiarities of a kind of metal- lic sand along the shores of New Plymouth, in Taranaki. This sand has the appearance of tine steel filings, and if a magnet be dropped upon it, and taken up ^again, the f instrument will be found to be thickly coated with iron granules. The place where the sand abounds is along the base of Mount Egmont, an extinct volcano ; and the deposit extends several miles along the coast, to the depth of many feet, and.having a cor- responding breadth. The geological supposi- tion is, that this granulated metal has been thrown out of the volcano, along the base of which it rests, into the sea, and there pul- verized. It has been looked upon for a long time as a geological curiosity, even to the...

BACKST AIR'S PASSAGE. THIS is a narrow strait lying between the main land and Kangaroo Island, South Aus- tralia, lt leads from the ocean to Port Ade- laide and other harbours in the Gulf of St. Vincent, and to Nepean Bay and Kingscote Harbour, on the north coast of Kangaroo Island. The narrowest part of the passage is nearly eight miles in width from Cape Jervis to the island, and has soundings vary- ing from twelve to twenty-two fathoms. Our engraving shews Kangaroo Island on the left, the main land lying on the right, with Cape Jervis lighthouse at the extreme point. The tides in the Backstairs Passage run very strongly, sometimes as rapidly as five knots.

TUMUT. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 8 June 1872

TOWNSHIP OF TUMUT. TUMUT. This township is situated in the electoral and police districts of the Tumut. It lies on the south bank of the Tumut River, Gilmour Creek flowing into it about 300 yards west from the township, the Tumut   River joining the Murrumbidgee six or seven miles from Gundagai. The district is essen- tially an agricultural one, the land consist- ing of a rich alluvial soil. It is the agricul - tural emporium of the entire surrounding   tract of country, supplying the more sterile   portions of the Murrumbidgee with bread stuffs, corn, and fodder. Tumut is a very   prettily situated town, and one remarkable   feature noticed on approaching it is its being so studded with trees, verdure, &c, which gives it quite a different appearance       from the dry brick-and-shingly-look which   most of our country towns possess.
