THE DUKE OF EDINBURGH'S VISIT TO INDIA. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 25 July 1867
,-THE 'DUKE ,OF: EDINBURGH'S:'.. r ,--y-VISIT TO INDIA.5. THE Times of. Iidia?. of the 13th April says:: We have` had other royal princes i i.this country, but ;not yet one of our blood royal. Now that the unioh between India and the crown, has been accom plished, it cannot be too complete. The bonds cannot be too securely rivited. There is a feeling of affection and rever ence, vague but strong, among the natives of India, especially the higher classes, for Victoria and her family; and we have no.doubt that the appearance among us of one of her Majesty's sons would evoke the most enthusiastic demonstra tions of loyalty: We have no doubt that people would come from afar to do honour to him, and that mlis progress through the. country would be something of a trium phal one. And if the Duke of Edin burgh is to come amongst :us at all, he must not come amongst as a mere travel ler or sportsman, under an assumed name. If there is to be a risk of a visit, it is a right to demand that the...

THE EVILS OF OVERSTOCKING RUNS. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 25 July 1867
THE EVILS OF OVERSTOCKING RUNS. t (From the Australasian.) t PEOPLE soon.-allow themselves to be lulled c into a feeling of false security when the pres- I sure of troubles is removed, and there is .much reason to fear that, as last summer and autumn were so favourable for grass, e the experience of the two previous years will I have been thrown away upon many of our c :sheepowners, and that they will be again e allowing their stock to increase much beyond c the average feeding capabilities of their S runs. 'The losses by deaths from actual starvation were serious enough during the a two bad years; but nothing to what they a would have been had last season set in dry t and warm. It is bad to have the market I overstocked withfat and half-fat sheep ; but t it would be very much worse to have it over- c stocked with lean stores, and no feed in any t direction along the roads; and such would t have been the case for several months past f but for the unexpected abundance of grass, a and...

MANUFACTURE OF KEROSENE OIL IN NEW SOUTH WALES. (Communicated to the S. M. Herald.) [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 25 July 1867
MANUFAOTURE OF KEROSENE OIL IN NEW SOUTE:- WALES. (Communicated to the S. .1L. Herald.) Tim introduction into this colony of a branch of manufacture derived from. a native mine ral possesses a peculiar interest. When that manufacture emibraces a variety of pro ducts, each presenting anew phase of utility, it deserves -something more than common attention. Such is the 1production called kerosene oil; w.hich, under the name of petroleum, has so added to the resources of America. In the latter country this rising industry has already reached the mature age of some half dozen years. In New South Wales it is yet in its earliest infancy. There, the public have had time to become somewhat familiarised with its peculiar won ders. 'Here, our colonists have not yet had proper opportunity even for inquiry, and the whole subject is novel. Even in Scot- land, the earliest seat in Britain of the ex traction of oil from a mineral substance, the process dates back to no very remote antiquity. There...

PRAIRIE-GRASS AND OSAGE ORANGE. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 1 August 1867
PRAIRIE-GRASS AND OSAGE ORANGE. (Firom the Australasian.) Sra,-Please to inform me how prairie-grass should be sown, and how much seed should be put to the acre ? Also, how Osage orange-plants should be planted in order to have a good living fence ? NOVICE. [The land is prepared as for other seeds, only it should not be harrowed quite so fine before the prairie-grass is sown. The quantity of seed required is from a bushel and a half to two bushels, that is from 301b. to 401b., to the acre; the latter quantity should be sown now, as the time is rather late. The Osage orange plants should be put in a double row, about nine inches apart between the plants and six inches between the rows, each plant opposite to the centre of the space between the two plants in the other row. If plants at that distance are cut down freely when young, they will soon form a fence perfectly close at bottom.-En.] CAnBB Ir PAtIs.-The Pall Mall Gazette says :-The cab famine at the French Exhibition forms a fer...
REVIEW. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 1 August 1867
RE#IEW. (?romn( he Launceston Times.) M"UA.uA of Swimming : by Charles Steed man. Melbourne : Dwight. Tasmania : Walcha. WE look. upon this little volume as a most welcome and valuable addition to'our colonial literature; welcome, as it puts us in the *ay of learning an art calculated to promote health and' comfort; and valuable, as it carries the subject further,- and enables us to apply that art to the protection of our selves and others. The author was, for several years, champion swimmer of England and Victoria, and every page of his book affords convincing proof that he is at all points master of his subject, and tends to confirm what he doubts-the ability to swim well and write well being combined in any one individual. After a very interesting chapter on bathing, showing its necessity as a means of cleansing the skin, and so re moving impurities%from it, the author pro ceeds to the subject of swimming - the purest exercise of health; The. kind refresher of the summer heats; a...
ON BEARDS. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 1 August 1867
"ON. BEARDS. BY TINTINNABULUBj. To shave, or not to shave that (really) is the ques tion. NOBoDY, Ibelieve, will attempt to decry the antiquity of the beard, which according to all philosophers is as old as Adam himself. Indeed, if there is any analogy between man of the present time, and our great ancestor, we may fairly conclude that beards were in existence with the male .members of the great primeval family. The Jews, I believe, were the first of writers on the subject, and -according to them, Adam, who was created in the prime of manhood, had a luxuriant black beard from the first hour of his life, Without having had any of the trouble our 1. youths of the present day have in endeavour e ing -to urge forward the drowsy crop. It .y was the custom of all eastern nations to a swear " by the beard of Moses," and, for '- aught I know to the contrary, they do so - still, . and the Psalmists, with much devo y tional piety, sung praises to the venerable is beard of Aaron, that "went do...

MR. -PALGRAVE IN THE DISMAL SWAMP. (RFroi the Pall .1all Gazette.) MR': GIFFOrD o .PALGRAVE went last Septem ber to take charge of- the important British consulate at Soukhoum Kale, so well known to our geographers and public men, to which he had been appointed as a reward of merit, and this is what he describes himself to have found as the state of things in Soukhoum Kale, according to . his maiden consular report of last February. He found no subjects and-no trade to begin with, and consequently no direct duties for him. He found no'people, for the inhabitants of the adjoining country, both north and west, have wholly disappeared, while those of the whole province of Abkhasia are shrunk to less. than half their original' number, amounting now to thirty thousand people only, very few of whom are in a condition to purchase anything. And he found no houses; for they were all burnt down in an insurrection -last August, and the Russians have done nothing toward rebuilding them further ...

SMALL HUSBANDRY AND LARGE RESULTS. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 1 August 1867
* SMALL HUSBANDRY AND LARGE RESULTS. (Froom the Australasian.J THAT the abundant enjoyment of any com modity leads either to its wasteful use or reprehensible abuse, is a fact so familiar to everybodjr's experience as to entitle it to be accepted as au axiomatic truth. And among the commodities so wasted and abused, in all newly-settled countries, we may include that which supplies us with the means of subsist ence and lies at the foundation of prosperity -land. We abuse it when we exhaust its fertility by excessive cropping; and we waste it when by a careless and unthrifty system of husbandry we only draw from a large area the returns which a much smaller area, thoroughly well cultivated, would be capable of yielding us. Owing, probably, to that earth-hunger which seems to be an instinct among civilised races, and which impels us to grasp as large a portion of the surface of the earth as we possibly can, most colonists who aim at becoming land-owners with a view to farming purchase...
HOPS. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 1 August 1867
l.OPS. (.From the Australasian.) THE consumption of ale is evidently on the increase; we are assured of this.on all sides, and every week brings us inquiries for in formation respecting the various ingredients used in the manufacture of colonial ale, more particularly as. to the cultivation of hops; and that this plant is being more patronised is evident, not only from the annually increasing number of exhibits at the various local grain shows held during the autumn months, but the very price per one thousand sets is now beginning to be quoted in the daily papers. At our late In tercolonial Exhibition, also, we could have borne testimony to the great and excellent variety of ales and porters which our own brewers and those from the adjacent colonies temptingly displayed in that deliciously cool cellar. Amongst those productiolis bad ale was the exception, and we believe that the judges of that section had as great difficulty in awarding the medals. and certificates as any class of j...

ARTEMUS WARD—HIS LIFE AND CHARACTERISTICS. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 1 August 1867
. ARTEMUS WARD-HIS LIFE AND 'CHARACTERISTICS. A`. warrER in the. New York Journal of Commerce gives the following sketch of the life of. this great American humorist: '" With about enough education for a sign board," as he himself said, a lean, provin cial adventurer, not midway in his te'ens, his dialect of the most nasal down eastern, and made to match his dress, young Browne left his stool in a printing-office of Skowhegan, Maine, and came to Boston for his fortune. He dropped by chance into the office of a laughing bankrupt paper, called the Carpet Bag, where by a fortuity of good humour were collected together B. P. Shillaber (Mrs. Partington), John G. Saxe, and G. C. Ralpine (Miles O'Reilly). Ward attracted no attenition beyond his uncouthness, as he was probably the best model of the tradi tional Yankee boy that Lowell or Trow bridge could discover. His nose was a keen aquiline, very mobile and peculiar; his eyes ,.were of. the palest indigo, redeemed from coldness by their c...
