AGRICULTURAL REPORTS, &c. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Courier and Agricultural and General Advertiser — 22 May 1845
AGRICULTURAL REPORTS, &c. TUB laie Floral, Horticultural and Agricultural Reports have by no means verified the expectations which those oí former years gave rise to. To what can we attribute this failing off in matters which promised to operate so prospe rously? The causes unhappily are too manifest, and have clearly. arisen from that commercial phrensy, which has at tacked and continues to prey on the ma jority of the inhabitants of this country, and to the indomitable desire of speedily becoming rich. These manifestations are fatal to a new Colony, for the sta bility of a nation floes, not depend jmj commerce which does not Ja any way tend to tlie moralization oitftspopnlaUon 4 Commerce is, doubtless, a great and noble pursuit, but unless it is supported by agriculture, those nations who devote themselves to it exclusively, ènjoy but an ephemeral prosperity ; whilst on the other hand, such as cultivate »he soil, will endure as long as the earth itself. It is not my intent...

MIMOSA OR WATTLE GUM. (From the Australian.) [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Courier and Agricultural and General Advertiser — 22 May 1845
-?»-» - MIMOSA; OB. WATTLE GUM. (From the Australian.J THE success of the colonists of South Australia, in their collection and ex portation of wattle gum, has caused ¡mi: tation by the people of Van Diemen's Land and New Zealand. In New South Wales, no one has ever collected the gum of the mimosa except children, who are fond of it. This tree has hither to been cut down for the value of its bark,which affords a strong tannin; and the bark, as well as the tannin itself, has bzen exported both from New south Wales and Van Dicmen's Land, since the foundation of the two colonies. A question now arises, which is the most valuable-an annual crop of gum until the tree dies, (we believe this tree decays in less than twenty years,) or the value of the bark, and the consequent destruction of the tree 1 We suppose nobody will doubt that the gum of an acre of wattles would greatly exceed the interest of the sum which, on their being cut down, the bark would realise. At all events, let it be ta...

One glance .at the handsome equipage would remove all doubt of its being English, although the appearance of its sole occupant showed Jew of those characteristics that distinguish our countrymen. He was a young man of about nine-and-twenty, tall and well made ; but the colour ol his eyes, of the deepest blue, scarcely -accorded with the dark complexion and jet black hair that seemed to proclaim him of Eastern rather than of European origin. His neatly-trimmed moustache, setting off a handsome mouth and teeth of feminine delicacy and whiteness, added to his foreign appearance, which "was further increased by the addition of sundry rings and chains, not exactly in keeping with the simplicity that usually marks Ute well-dressed Englishman, The traveller was Sir Caversh...
