THE SHORES OF THE POLAR SEA. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 8 March 1879
THE SHORES OF THE POLAR SEA* The tale of Arctic travel lias been told so ofteu aud so 'well, it might seem needless to multiply books on tlie sub ject, but that for some minds ths question of Arctic exploration has a fascination never wholly satisfied, and to such Dr. Moss's work will doubtless prove a boon. Tlie great weight and size of the book make it too unwieldy a comuanion to accompany the most ardent lover of Arctic narratives in his summer rambles, but when cosily seated by the library lire, with a little table — not on wheels beside him, lie may turn over his pages with considerable satisfaction, and while pleasing his eye with sketches which really seem to convey a very vivid idea of the scenes depicted, may quickly gather up the more .salient points of a narrative told at far greater length in the volumes which have preceded it, and with which he may or may not lie familial'. Dr. Edward Moss was with the Alert during her voyage of discovery in 1875-G, and the drawings wit...
THE FATTENING OF OYSTERS. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 8 March 1879
THE FATTENING OF OYSTERS. Very few persons who feast on the large and toothsome oysters, which are served up at the raw boxes of many of the oyster houses in this city, have the remotest idea from what source the luscious bivalves are obtained, or in what manner they are fattened. The oysters obtained trom Tangier Sound, Lynnhaven, and what is known as the seaside oyster, are rather a small oyster, enclosed in au immense shell — their native element being salt water. These ojsters, when dredged and brought to the Baltimore market, are sold to the packers and others at the rate of CO cents a bushel, llecently a plan has been discovered by which these oysters can be not only fattened in a very short time, but their value enluuiced at least 150 per cent. Two of the larger oyster-packing firms are now engaged iu this business, aud the manner of procedure is described as follows by one who has watched the operation : When the oysters are unloaded from the puugies tliey are transferred to...

TELEGRAPHIC. LOtfDOX. March 5. Mb. Berry has decided to offer £3,000,000 of the proposed loau at 98 cum. div. The Secretary of State for the Colonies has issued a further dispatch, in which he repeated the opinion expsessed on the 27th August, respecting the dismissal of the civil servants in Victoria. He states that the gravity of the principles involved is not lessened by the small ness of the number of officials dismissed, which rendered the neces sity of such a step ou economical grounds less evident, lie further says, that had Governor Sir George Bowen acted ou the view he took when lie induced the Ministry to partially retrace their steps, he would probably have overcome the financial diffi culty without having recourse to a measure iuvolving so grave au objection. George Fraucis Dickinsou has failed for £60,000. The Opera House House site on the Thames Kmbaukinent has been oflered as a site for a colonial museum. Sir A.

If the prospcctus issued by the proposed Sydney Co-operative Meat Comany is to be accepted as truth, and not a subtle tract disseminated by a band of vegetarians, who are trying artifice to bring over accessions to their ranks, the meat-consuming public of Sydney arc certainly to be pitied. The in tention of the Company is to reform abuses wliton are stated to exist in tne meat traue, and evidently with the view of making the speculation popular tlie shares, of which there are to be 20,000, have been fixed at i'l each. The price will enable the possessorof the most modest income to acquire a deeper interest in his butcher than most people feel at the present time. There is 110 doubt that the butcher it? about the best-almsed purveyor for the public, but it is not- entirely without cause. The profits of tlie business are lnrjre, even if the priniest meat be sold, and lie seldom recognises the justice of giving the consumer tlie advantage of a depressed con dition of the fat stock mar...
