RIDING RECOLLECTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 8 March 1879

RIDING RECOLLECTIONS. A melancholy interest attaches to this work, as being (lie list we shall receive from Captain G. J- Why te- Melville. Not many days have passed since the telegraph brought the news of the death of the author bj ail accident in the hunting-field — tlist scenn of sport which lias been the subfect of so much of his best writing. Ii is given to few who aro first-clafis practical exponents ot an art to have the power to comimmi cate to others what they can do so well themselves. And, generally speaking, the best performers are apt to bo reti cent and somewhat jealous- of discus sing the principles and practice of that in which tliey excel, save with those whom they recognise as equals. But here and there we have instances to the contrary. On the river, as oars men of past, days will remember, Matt Taylor, of Newcastle, combined all the power of a professional with the finish of an amateur, and was as good a coach as a builder. Many a man familiar with work 011 the u...

LADY BOWEN. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 8 March 1879

Lady Bowen. A Governor's wife of necessity moves in a much more restricted sphere than her husband does ; but as the first lady in the colonjr, it is of incalculable im portance that she sliouid exhibit a high type of womanhood. And this Lady Bowen has unquestionably done. The merchants of Melbourne could not bring themselves to shed tears over Sir George's departure ; but, doubtless with their full consent and approval, their wives presented a diamond tiara to the gentle lady who had presided over the domesticities of Government House. Tlie Melbourne correspondent of our morning contemporary affirms that, though Lady Bowen has shared some of the coldness which has been shown to her husband, yet there is but one opinion as to the real courtesy which she has uniformly displayed. Further, he says that Government House has beeu made a place where people could go with the certainty of enjoying them selves without the unpleasant restraint which is sometimes felt iu the presence of vice-r...

AN OLD TIME GAS PANIC. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 8 March 1879

AN OLD TIME GAS PANIC. As an addendum to the editorial article in his journal a few days ago, concerning the electric light discussion in London and the panic among the holders of gas company shares in that city, growing out of the cable announcement of Edison's discovery of the divisibility of the electric light, we reproduce below an extract from a pamphlet published in London nearly thirty years ago, when a similar panic loiiowea a similar announcement in 1848. So far as we have looked into the London papers of October of this year, while the gas stock scare was raging, 110 reference was made to the business panic that ensued upon the launching of the electric light thirty years ago, yet it must still be in the memory of many Londoners. The pamphlet we refer to was printed in London in 1849, and is entitled ' Gas lighting — Its Progress and Its Pros pects,' etc., by J. O. N. Rutter, F.R.A.S. O11 page 26 we find the following passage relating to the panic of 1848-9, which so preci...

MR. STUART ON FINANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 8 March 1879

Mr. Stuart on Finance. There may be a good deal of truth in what Mr. Stuart says, as to the necessity for additional taxation, but we do not think the present the time to impose it. There is no immediate occasion for the money, and the colony is only just re covering from a severe financial crises, largely occasioned through the late pro tracted drought. Besides, the Ministry has no time for important legislation this session, aud if a considerable change requires to be made in dealing with the finances of the country, it had nmcb better be deferred till next session. Let the Government pass the ordinary Estimates this session, and so much of the contemplated special Estimates, the expenditure of which is intended to extend over a number of years, as the House may approve of and consider desirable, and that, with other necessary legislation, will be quite as much as should be attempted this session, which should lie brought to a close as soon as possible. Next session, the ideas of ...

THE BOOK OF KELI. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 8 March 1879

THE BOOK OF KELT. And it came to pass in the reign of the King Georgius Boenus, that there was a certain tribo known as the Kelit.es in the land of Mansfield, whose name was a terror unto the people, aud whose deeds of blood and slaughter were recorded in all tlie books published in the nation. Now these men of blood had been pursued by the hosts of the king Georgius, and by the captains of his hosts, for that they had done many grievous acts against the laws of the land. And the captains of the king's hosts, with their mighty men of valour, pursued the Kelites, and camped over on the lull of Wombat, the same that is now known as the hill of blood. But the Kelites were not captured, 1101' could tliey be found by the hosts of the army of the king. Then arose the chicf of the captains of the king's guards, named Dishstand, and said unto his people, ' Behold, I will leave my abode near the palace of tlie king, and 1 will pursue this Kelite tribe, even unto the ends of the earth ; and I...

ABOUT "JACKAROOS." [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 8 March 1879

ABOUT ' J ACKAROOS.' 'Jackaroo,' as most of my leaders know, is bush-slang for 'Johnny Raw' or, in politer phraseology, ' Colonial Experience,' and this letter is for the purpose of laying before the parents and guardians of intending followers of pastoral pursuits iu Australia a few plain unvarnished trutns respecting that path in life. Unless human nature has vastly changed since those far-oil', but well remembered, days when the writer was himself a boy, the 'chief desire of lads is to be free from tjjpy thraldom of school discipline. To - them manhood is synonymous witlr' independence, and how to compass that independence is their principal anxiety. The army is a very favourite idea, but it requires both brains and application to pass the examinations, and either a long purse or very economical habits to maintain a respectable appearance while still a junior officer. The navy has also grout attractions, but the same objections apply to it. The learned professions are avoided by ...

NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 8 March 1879

New Zealand. The master of the steamer Taupo, recently wrecked at Tauranga, has had his certificate 'suspended for three months. The certificates of the other officers have been returned to them. Two large fires occurred on Tuesday. One was at Masterton, Wairarapa, where eleven houses, including the Bank of Australasia, were destroyed, and the other was at Poverty Bay, where five buildings were destroyed. A bank deposit receipt for £1000 was found blowing about in Colombo street, Ohristchurce, recently. The owner was eventually found, arid the picker-up of this unconsidered trifle received a handsome present. A small company iu Wellington (N.Z.), which purchased, twenty-five tickets iu North's £2000 sweep on the Wellington Cup, drew three out of the five horses that ran, and these were the favourites. Another company bought seventy-five tickets, aud did not draw a horse.

CATTLE RAISING IN THE STATES. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 8 March 1879

CATTLE RAISING IN THE STATES. At Kansas City the stockyards are com plete, though not nearly so extensive as tlio-:e at Chicago. The immense slaughter-house for packing beef affords a market, for that kind of stock produce. The better class, fed in Kansas and Missouri, are shipped to the Eastern markets. There is one of the most extensive packing-houses for beef at the Kansas City stockyards that can be found in this country ; consequently there is a good demand for that class of cattle through the packing season, and there being an immense amount of feed in Kansas and Missouri, a great many are herded to meet that demand, the best ones being selected and fed for higher class markets. There are more of the latter class of cattle hold in Kansas to be fori for first-class beef than any other, and numerous herds abound there ripen ing for either of tlie three markets, Kansas Citv, St. Louis, or Chicago, or continue on to Jiuflalo, Albany, or New York, finally England, when tlie quality...

STRAW AS FOOD FOR STOCK. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 8 March 1879

STRAW AS FOOD FOR STOCK. Ix tbe newer portions of the West straw is burned to get it out of the way. In the Eastern States, where the soil has been cropped for a long time the organic matter is more or less exhausted, hence straw is of vital impor tance in supplying the constituents of which it is composed to the earth from which they are drawn. Rye straw is used largely in some parts of the country for manufacturing paper. Last winter it was worth $2 more a ton ou this account in Saratoga Country, N.Y'., than hay. Wherever this is the case it is advisable to sell the straw and buy hay, as the difference in price and the difference in value for feeding make a considerable margin in favour of hay. Hay is the most natural and valuable winter food for farm animals. No animal would eat straw as clean as hay, but would leave tlie coarser parts of tlie straw. This would make a large percentage not utilized for food. If it was cut up fine more would be eaten, but this would add to the cost...

SPIRIT OF THE PRESS. THE FELONS' APPREHENSION BILL [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 8 March 1879

SPIRIT OP THE PRESS. The Felons' Apprehension Bill Douists have arisen in the minds of certain legal gentlemen, as to the effect of the Felons' Apprehension Bill, which passed through all its parliamentary stages. It is said, that under its pro visions the Kellys could not be tried if they wore captured ; they might be shot down with impunity, but if brought in alive and placid in the dock, they could plead, what is known in legal ph raseologv, as autre fois attaint, and they would be at once released. If this be the case a most curious instance of legislative blundering has occurred, and it is surprising that the eminent lawyers who gave considerable attention to this bill did not perceive the violation of the fundamental principles of British law, Even if the measure proves to be cor rectly phrased, it is curious to find that the lawyers are in doubt, and that the point would have to be gravely argued if any of the bushrangers were brought to justice. We certainly cannot boast tha...

JAPANESE WHEAT. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 8 March 1879

JAPANESE WHEAT. A curious fact is recorded in connection with some experiments lately made by direction of the Paris Acclimatisation Society -with some grains of wheat received from Japan. Very little spring sowing of wheat takes place in France, and as the small landowners who till their own land single-handed are frequently occupied in various avo cations during the day they have very little opportunity for paying proper attention to their farms at seed-time. The uncertain weather, again, prevail ing in October aud November is a great drawback to all agricultural operations, and especially to such as are conducted in this desultory manner, often, indeed, forcing the agriculturist to sow the inferior ' spring ' or ' summer ' wheat when he has been unable to prepare his ground for the more desirable 'winter' variety. A suggestion, however, from a correspondent in Japan has resulted in the discovery that Japanese wheat, planted in April or May, is ripe and ready for the harvest quite...

INTERCOLONIAL NEWS. New South Wales. The guard Perdue, who was convicted of manslaughter in connection with tlie fatal accident by the collision of moun tain trains, some months ago, lias been released from gaol. The following item of telegraphic news appears in the Yass Courier : — A well-known Catholic priest has called a meeting of his creditors. His liabilities are said to amount to about .£40,000, and have arisen principally from specu lations in hotels. Tlie Riverine Herald states that along the swampy Murray flats red gum grows as fast as blue gum itself, and instances a case where an area in the neighbourhood of Echuca, which wa- cleared only 1 4 years ago, is now again yielding a large supply of excellent timber.

IMPROVING THE ELECTRIC LIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 8 March 1879

IMPROVING THE ELECTRIC LIGHT. Patents for Mr. Thomas A. Edison's proposed new electric light were issued yesterday (says the New York Tribune of December 10, 1878). They cover inventions for dividing the light and for regulating the flow of electric currents through platinum wires, by which the light is produced. A rumour was circulated recently that these in ventions were infringements on the dis coveries of an English inventor, but it was learned that a committee to which the inventions we e referred decided that Mr. Edison's discoveries were new. Mr. Edison recently declined to give to the Tribune a description of his electric light, saying that it would be unsafe for him to publish his inventions until they had been patented. A reporter who visited Mr. Edison's workshop at Menlo Park, N.J., yesterday was met again by a courteous refusal. Several prominent members of the stock com pany, which has been formed to introduce the new light into general use, were present at the laborat...

Action was taken at a meeting on Tuesday to seenre the representation of Victoria at the coming Sydney Inter national Exhibition. A large number of men are now employed at the Exhi bition in Carlton Gardens.

The writer of the article ot ' Near sightedness ill Children,' printed in the Educational Weekly, gives this excel lent rule : ' Encourage the pupil to look off the book frequently, to change the focus of sight by regarding .some distant object. It is not enough to look around vaguely ; the eye must be directed to something which is to be clearly seen, like a picture or a motto upon the wall, or a bit of decoration. The greatest damage to the eyes of students is the protracted effort to focus the printed page. It was simply bar barous, the way we used to be ' whacked : in school, when we looked off the book. It is easy for a teacher to know the difference between the resting of the eye and the idle gazing around that can not be allowed. I regard this rule as the most important, and the disregard of it the most prolific of trouble.''
