Our Farm. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 10 June 1873

©ur jfarm* IN'OUT last issue, at page 19, we gave an «ccoúiit of a very valuable plant-the Bras dca çaulorapày commonly called the Kohl-rabi .i-and we now present our readers with drawings of the two fine specimens that Mr. .J. Ramsay grew at Nanama, near Yass. Many of our farmers may not be acquainted with this valuable plant, which is destined -to become the main artificial stall feed of our ?«attie and sheep. . These engravings, with the full description -of its growth, quantities, cultivation, and -uses, in last number, will afford them ample /information. We intended to have entered fully into the details of the arrangements of the buildings and the drainage of the property, but the valuable statistics we publish this issue we -consider of the first importance, and have given them the space, as they will prove the .amount of the capital expended, quantity of land in cultivation, and the extent of land and property in the hands of the agricultural industries, with the numbers of...

HUME, THE EXPLORER. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 10 June 1873

HUME, THE EXPLORER.   Another old identity, whose name will always be intimately associated with the Australian colonies, has passed away. The death of Hamilton Hume took place on the 19th of April, at Cooma Cottage, Yass, New South Wales. Hamilton Hume was born at Parramatta, an the 18th June, 1797. He was the eldest of four children of Mr. Commissary-General A. H. Hume, who, in 1797, had left England for Australia on board tho frigate Guardian, commanded by Riou, "the gallant, good Riou," of subse- quent historic fame. When but seventeen Mr. Hume discovered the country around Berrima. In 1815, he thoroughly explored   that country. In 1817, at the request of Governor Macquarie, Mr. Hume accom-   panied Mr. Surveyor Meehan on a southern   expedition to the " new country." During this trip they discovered Lake Bathurst, Goulburn Plains, and neighborhood. In 1818, Mr. Hume was joined with Messrs. Meehan and Oxley in an exploring exp...

THE KENNEDY FAMILY AT THE SCHOOL OF ARTS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 10 June 1873

THE KENNEDY FAMILY AT THE SCHOOL OF ARTS. " TWA Hours at Hame " is one of those plea- sant and instructive entertainments which keep us enwrapped in interest for the pre- scribed couple of hours, and then send us away, like Oliver Twist, ' ' asking for more." For many years the illustration of national characteristics hy means of entertainments of this kind has been exceedingly popular among British subjects, wherever they may be, for nobody can laugh more heartily at the peculiarities of Great Britain and Ireland than does honest John Bull himself. Here in Australia we have had exponents-more or less talented-of American, English, Irish, and Scot- tish nationality ; and among these last we con- fess to the laughing we were forced to indulge in, and the occasional " wee bit moisture in the 'ee," as we listened to Mr. Kennedy's exqui- site delineations of Scot- tish life-humorous and pathetic. His portfolio of novelties is marvellous for variety. During his short stay amongst us he h...

GEORGICS. BOOK ii.-continued. I Of vegetable woods are various kinda ; .And the same species are of aev'ral minds. Lotes, willows, elaiB, have difFrent forms allow'd ; So fun'ral cypress, rising like a shroud, Fat olive trees of sundry sorts appear, .Of sundry shapes their unctuous bernes bear. Radii long olives, Orchites round produce, And bitter Pausia pounded for the juice. Alcinöus' orchard various apples bears ; Unlike are bergamots and pounder pears. Nor our Italian vines produce the shape, .Or taste, or flavour, of the Lesbian grape. The Thasian vines in richer soils abound ; 'The Marcotic grow in barren ground. "The Psythian grape we dry : Lagean juice Will stamm'ring tongues, and stagg'ring feet produce. Rath ripe are Borne, and some of later kind ; Of golden some, and some of purple rind. How shall I praise the Rhsethiau grape divine, "Which yet contends not with Falernian wine ? Th' Aminean many a consulship survives, And longer than the Lydian vintage lives, " .Or high P...

FREEMASONS' HALL, WAGGA WAGGA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 10 June 1873

FREEMASONS' HALL, WAGGA WAGGA. THE Freemasons' Hall, Wagga Wagga, of which we give an engraving in this issue, is a noble room of 63 feet in length by 35 feet in width ; and, in addition, possesses a spa- cious gallery above the retiring rooms lying to the right and left of the folding doors ter- minating the lobby entrance of the hall, and thus affords a total available seating space for the audience of 74 feet in length. The stage is of the same width as the hall itself, but runs back to a depth of 20 feet, and has been elaborately fitted up with the latest mechanical appliances and improvements for theatrical representations by Mr. Setright, scenic artist, of Sydney, by whom the whole of the scenery and decorations have been painted. The drop scene, in particular, is a beautiful work of art, representing, with re- markable fidelity, a view of Windsor Castle from the Thames. The front elevation of the hall in Fitzmaurice-street makes no very great pretensions to architectural beau...

INDIAN HORSE MARKET. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 10 June 1873

INDIAN' HORSE MARKET. IN our last month's issue we gave the amount of the prizes offered by the Government of India, on the importation of certain horses ; the prices that will be paid for remounts, as also the regulations under which they will be received ; with the number and description of the horses required ; and now we give a reprint of our idea of what a horse for generally useful purposes should be like, and do so at this instant, as we con- sider the form and breeding of this horse as particularly adapted for military service in India. His beautifully balanced frame ensures an activity and command of action that would make him invaluable to the swordsman and light cavalryman. His car- riage, roundness, with depth of barrel ; his short back, compact coupling, deep and mus- cular quarters, powerful well-under-him hocks ; clear waist ; muscular, full, yet free, oblique shoulders ; good crest ; well put-on, beautiful lean head ; bright, full, clear, mild expressive eyes, on eit...

ODD BITS ABOUT SYDNEY—CHURCH HILL. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 10 June 1873

ODD BITS ABOUT SYDNEY - CHURCH HILL. IN this number we commence a series of odd bits of Sydney, which we purpose continuing from time to time, and which will give an idea of the improvements and peculiarities of some parts of our city. We select as our first illustration a view of Church Hill as it is at present. In July, 1788, six months after the settlement of the colony, the town was planned   and laid out, and among the earliest streets formed was Charlotte-place, which runs in a line nearly due east and west, and received its name in honour of the mother of the then reigning sovereign. A south-western street was also planned out, running from the intersection of George-street with Charlotte-place   to where Petty's Hotel now stands. In 1789, the old Guard House stood on the   site now occupied by Mr. Cleeve's residence, and Charlotte-place was used as the parade ground. In July, 1793, the church, known as Old St. Phillip's was commenced, a...

j &mnttfîc tëoôôip* PRESERVIXO WOOD.-In the Annales du Génie Civil, Dr. Keiuesh gives the following directions for rendering wood difficult of ! combustion, and preserving it underground ! The wood, unplaned, is to be placed for twenty-four hours in a liquid composed of one part of concentrated silicate of potassa and three of pure water. After being removed j and dried for several days, the wood is again to be soaked in this liquid, and after being j again dried, painted over with a mixture of one part of cement and four parts of the above liquid. When the first coat of this painting is dry, the painting is to be repeated*! twice. This paint mixture should only be made up in small quantities, as it rapidly becomes dry and hard. Wood thus treated becomes uninflammable, and does not decay underground. ST. ANDREW'S CHURCH, LISMORE, RICHMOND RIVER.

FACTORY GIRLS LEAVING WORK. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 10 June 1873

FACTORY GIRLS LEAVING WORK. THE rapid increase in Sydney of large fac- tories for the production of Blop clothing has created a great demand for female labour, so that the " machinist," as she is technically styled, has become quite an institution. So numerous are these large clothing ware- houses, and so constant the requirements of their trade, that no girl who is capable of working a sewing-machine need despair of employment in Sydney at remunerative wages. A loud outcry has recently been made in some of the large Victorian cities on behalf of this peculiar branch of female workers ; and much has been said, we presume on good foundation, about their low rate of pay, long hours of labour, &c. Specially has this been the case in Ballarat. But it appears that the girls have little to complain of in Melbourne, and certainly they are not badly off in Sydney establishments, as any one may decide who sees them leaving work. Our artist has chosen for his sketch the dismissal of t...

SPENCER'S ROYAL POLYTECHNIC. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 10 June 1873

SPENCER'S ROYAL POLYTECHNIC. WHAT has Mr. Spencer now to show us? A wonderful baby ! Not, let us venture to explain, the baby of every household, who is always the most wonderful small specimen of humanity in existence ; but a real prodigy for size and plumpness, wonderful in height, wonderful in breadth, and only eight months old, sir ! There are a number of people who admire fat babies (people who don't have to carry them), and such folks will now be able to feast their eyes upon the "fattest of the fat, " a real ' * claimant " (not like the soi disant Sir Roger, though promising to be a rival in size) for public favour. As to the other attractions, there is so much that is pretty and amusing and ingenious in Mr. Spencer's room, that where else can you better display your wonderful fund of infor- mation to sweet Lavinia than here ? Of course (don't forget this) provided you have taken your cyclopedia prior to the visit, and well studied up mechanics, hydrostatics, pneumatics, and ...

MRS. GOURLAY'S VARIETY EXHIBITION. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 10 June 1873

MRS. GOURLAYS VARIETY EXHIBITION. THE proprietress of this extensive and popular entertainment-or rather series of entertainments-seems determined not to risk losing the favour of her patrons. E very mouth something aew is added, until room after room is a mass of pleasing curiosities. Nor are the silent attractions of the wax figures, the mummy, the alligators, &c, allowed to plead alone ; we have the addi- tional allurement of a regular set programme of new and popular music every evening, in which the whole of the Gourlay family and Mons. Corbet appear. Residents in Sydney will remember when the talented trio, Mr. and Mrs. Gourlay and " Little Johnny, " first visited Sydney, some years ago, and gave their wonderful impersonations of Scottish life and character. After a retirement for some considerable time from his profession, Mr. Gourlay again appears to add increased zest to the evening's amusement offered at the Variety Exhibition, and again we caa laugh over "The Righ...

THE EARL OF WARWICK'S SEWAGE FARM. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 10 June 1873

THE EARL OE WARWICK'S SEWAGE FARM. WE extract the following, by Col. George E. Waring, jun., of Ogden Farm, from that very valuable paper the American Agriculturist. This practical detail of the management of a town's sewage [may be found very useful in many places in this country. - The result of the system established on so small an outlay is instructive, and is an example we' hope soon to see followed here : ~ The sewage question has for many years engaged much attention in England.. How i¡o prevent the waste of towns from polluting rivers which run past other towns in their .course, was the first consideration ; how to turn the waste to profitable account as manure, the second. - Many attempts have been made to use the land as a purifying agent, and to convert the matters withdrawn by it from the sewage into a useful formas constituents of crops. Most of these attempts failed to accomplish what was expected of them. They generally -cost more than they came to, and the problem is...

USEFUL INFORMATION. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 10 June 1873

USEFUL INFORMATION. I THE Act to authorise the erection of public gates across certain roads, assented to by His Excellency the Governor, enacts that in the construction thereof, the word " occupant" means any person in lawful possession of land. The term " public road" shall mean any road or portion of a road, and also any track or portion of a track within the mean- ing of the 19th section of the Crown Lands Occupation Act of 1861, heretofore or hereafter to be dedicated to or lawfully used by the public. By the third clause, the oc- cupant of, any land through which any un- fenced public road passes, may, at his own cost, place gates across such road wherever the same intersects any fence, enclosing, or bounding his land, or any part thereof, upon ' obtaining permission so to do from the Secre- tary of Lands.

At present all landing and shipping is carried on by surf ? boats at great expense. It is surprising that with such disadvantages the place has gone ahead so much. Although only about ten years o-d it now numbers about 2000 inhabitants, and contains several very handsome buildings. The greater por- tion, of the. buildings is of the beautiful white stone with which the district abounds, and whi...

TRINITY CHURCH, LAWRENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 10 June 1873

TRINITY CHURCH, LAWRENCE. This church is situated in Whitehaven street, and for architectural beauty is the ( principal object that attracts the eye on enter- . ing the township of Lawrence. The style of the building is an adaptation of the per- pendicular Gothic, suited to the material (native timber) made use of in construction. On the plan it consists of a nave, 41 feet by 27 feet, internal measurement, subdivided by open principals into bays. The height from floor to ridge is 33 feet. The chancel is 15 feet by 12 feet, with vestry attached on northern side, the principal entrance porch occupying the second bay on the same side towards the western elevation. The portion now erected is intended to form a part of a cruciform building carried out in proportion to the part now erected, with tower and spire complete. Over the main gable of the present building a handsome open campanile, ' finished with side gables, surmounts one of. the ventila- ting openings ' of the church, and in t...

NEW CATHEDRAL OF ST. DAVID, HOBART TOWN. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 10 June 1873

NEW CATHEDRAL OE ST. DAVID, HOBART TOWN. Our illustration represents the new cathe- dral now in course of erection in Hobart Town, as it will appear when the full design is carried out. At present, only the nave and aisles, with the transepts, have been erected ; the chancel and tower being left to a future day. The old St. David's, ; ST. DAVID'S CATHEDRAL, HOBART TO W N. which this new cathedral is destined to re- place, has stood now for more than half a century, and carries upon its face many marksj of old age, sp that it seems to be only waiting for its time to pass away. The erection of a new and better church was pro- posed by the present bishop of Tasmania, on nis appointment about eight years ago, and on his appeal many contributions were given, so that before the end] of 1867 it was found possible ro make a commencement. The foundation-stone was laid, with all due ceremony, by H. E. H. the Duke of Edin- burgh on the Sth of January, 1868, and by the end of last year the port...

OUR SUPPLEMENT. "THE WORSHIP OF BACCHUS." [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 10 June 1873

OUB, SUPPLEMENT. ««THE WORSHIP OF BACCHUS." F intemperance, and all the evil which springs from it, has been denounced from the pulpit aud the platform, and received therefrom many a withering blow.- it has suf- fered as much, and, perhaps, more, from the pencils of caricaturists. Foremost among these, in the temperance cause, stands the name of George Cruikshank, whose inimitable pourtrayals of drunkenness, and its inevitable. conse- quences, find their way, at the first glance, to the un- derstandings of high and low. The finest of his efforts, as far as an individual picture is concerned, is undoubtedly the "Worship of .Bacchus," which we have this month re- produced and localised. The illustration scarcely needs describing, so forcibly and un- mistakably does it tell its own tale ; and, moreover, it is so marvellously abundant in incident, that it would require many hours' .careful study to gather out all the truths it so graphically pourtrays. Still, as it is customary to offer...
