SCIENCE—INVENTION— CONSTRUCTION. Curious Applications of Electricity. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 19 February 1870

SCIENCE-INVENTION- * CONSTRUCTION. Curious Applications of Electricity. .ROBERT HOUDIIÎ, tho greatest prestidigitateur ol modern times, livos in a charming mansion called tin " Priory," in the village of Saint Gervais, upon tin right bank of the Loire, about one mile and a hali from the City of Blois. His dwelling, with tho spnoiouf grounds surrounding it, are believed by tlie common people of the vicinity to be controlled by some mys* terious agont ; and in their eyes tho owner has an almost supernatural reputation. This impression hat doubtless been produced, in no small moasuro, by thc fact that LI. Houdin has made extensivo uso of clec tricity to accomplish very many remarkable, and at tho same time, useful results. Some of those aro ex- ceedingly ingenious. The main entrance to the Priory Í3 a carriage-way, closed by a gate, Upon the left of this is a door for the admission of visitors on foot ; on the right is placed a letter-box.

Sir,-There have recently appeared in tho colonial Press several interesting communications of scientific correspondents touching tho origin of that simple hut most comprehensive general law of gravity; . which physioal soience rigorously demonstrates as pervading the vast domains of the universe.

Mining Items. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 19 February 1870

Mining Items. SOME rich specimens of gold have been brought from Orange to Caloola weighing in|all about Gh ounces. In appearance, the Examiner reports, it much reiembl«« that obtained at Ophir, though blighter in appearance. The greater portion of it was obtained near the surface, and was of a light scaley nature- though some nuggety specimens of tho same sample, obtained at a dept of 15 feet, wero of moro weighty appearanco. The locality whore the gold wa3 procured is between Mr. Hater's and Mrs. McKinnon's. Tho value of tho gold is said to bo about £3 13s 6d per ounce. Quartz-mining seems to be looking up at the Iron- barks. Fitzismmons and party are getting stono out of their ohxim near the Beehive roef^far richer then any hitherto found in that locality ; some persons who pre- tend to be judges say it will yield twelve ounces per ton, but ono of the party considers about eight ounces will bo the average; the sinking is 70 feet.

Facts for Farmers. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 19 February 1870

Pacts for Farmers. A cojrrofiT in tho hill of lime, ashes and salt make po.tato-vincs stiff and tall. This prevents tho rot. NEITHER hons, hogs, nor human beings dowell on an unchanging diet, they cannot live by bread alone. TWELVE years' exporienco and trial of various breeds, convinced an excellent dairy farmer that tho best stock for milk is tho Ayrshire. To sudstituto a valuable for a poor grass is of as much importance aa to root out weeds. A character Í3 often mado as useless by a feeble virtue as by a vice. Carbolic acid is just now tho favorito disinfectant. Mixed with limo it makes what clnuciats call a carbolalo -thia is death to all had odours. In raising thc corn crops, the plough should not bo 'used after planting. Frequent light stirlings of the surface arc found best. Three definitions : To mulch a soil is to cover it with some vegctablo refuse ; to manure is to blend with a soil substances rich in plant-food ; to Cultivate is to stir often and root out weeds.

MINES AND MINING The Gold-Fields' Regulations. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 19 February 1870

SINCE tho discovery of gold in Australia, the Govern monts of differont times have found no task moro diffi cult than tho management of tho gold-fields in à manner satisfactory to tho mining population' not withstanding much outer}'on tho one sido and'many promises on the other. Suo.essive ohanges havo signally failed to bring about any good result. Mininc for gold has now becomo very intimately connected with commerco ; and among tho dwellers in our great oitios aro to bo found a lnrgo number of speculators dooply interested in mining companies ; hence we find tho cry hitherto emanating only from the actual minors is taken up by another large and influential seo tion of tho community. As a rule, tho representatives of tlic throe gold districts in the Legislature have not boon ablo to do much for their constituents, hi so far as concerns the framing of regulations likely to meet thc wants and wishes of the minors.

The First Lot of Californian Beet Sugar. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 19 February 1870

The First Lot of Californian Beet Sugar. A LOT of Californian beet sugar has hoon mado, and tho business may bc regarded as established, with every prospect of speedy and largo dovolopmont. Wo have heretofore spokun of tho experimental fac- tory near Sacramento, intended to test tho practic- ability of making sugar from boots grown in tho Stato of California. There was a doubt about tho soil, it was feared that tho provnlcnco of alkali, gonorally, mado it almost certain that OA'on whero not uppai'cnt to tho eye, thora would be enough to prevent tho cryntalisation of tho syrup into sugnr. It has already been shown by analysis that our sugar boots aro sufficiently rich in saccharine matter. _ Tim only question, thorefore, hoing on tho crystalising of tho syrup, very rude works were put up, which wore considered sufficient to provo tho point in controversy. With rusty iron boilers, and rivots covered with oil, the sugar was expected to bo chirk enough. "But," said tho shareholders,"lot...

Ploughing and Harrowing [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 19 February 1870

Ploughing and Harrowing TiiJä preparation of tho soil for the reception of seed is a matter of greater importance than many of our far- mers seem to think. This is manifest in a cursory glance at many of tho so-called cultivated fields in tho agricultural districts. Should you attempt the feat of wading through one of those newly ploughed and sowed fields, your pathis blocked in every direction by hugeboulders of earth. Wo have quostionedfarmers as to their reasons for leaving the land so rough, and have been told that wheat and some other cereals need rough ground for support : for they aro apt to be thrown down hythe wind when the earth is too finely pulverised around thom. Now this romark is not altogether devoid of force. Thero is need for support to the long stems of many cereals having but a very slight hold of the earth by means of their roots ; and this support may unquestionably be given them by leaving the earth a little rough about the roots. But this truth does not count...

Stump Extractors. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 19 February 1870

Ha. 1. Stump Extractors. THE accompanying rough diagrams represent Craw- ford's stump extractor and rock lifter, and the mode of operating with it. This machine haB been brought into uso in America to a great extent in clearing land for cultivation. Fig. 1 represents the principal parts of tho machine. It comprises a working beam A, a ratchot wheel B, pawls C, cross hangers D D, level's E E, and a chain wheel F. By means of tho lovera E E the beam A is rocked, and by alternately lifting the crosshangers and pawls suspended to it moves round tho wheel B. The chain-wheel F, being on the same axle as the ratohet wheel B, is carriod round with it, and winds up the strong chain G. This chain is kept from shifting by flanges projecting between the links. The power of the machine is doubled by a heavy iron pully H. Spiral springs 11 aro attached to the beam, which may be hooked on tho crosshangors so as ^ to reverse the motion of tho wheel and lowor the weighty when necessary. In order to ...

Tho introduction of tho how staple is represented as likely to be of great value to that country, as tho demand for Angora wool is fast increasing in Europe A number of Angoras colleoted by Mr. D. P. Blaino, of tho finn of Blaine and Co., have been imported at immense oxponso into South Australia, of such a oharaotcr that it is considered doubtful whether a Hook of goats, equal in form and quality, could bo picked in their original habitat-Asia Minor.

This we look upon as a condition most favourable, and would nevor fear any fatal results under such circumstances ; but, after this wound had boon sown up, symptoms of totanus manifested themselves, and induced tho farrier to fear that somo foroign body was embedded in tho wound. Not being ablo to find anything thero, and not knowing very woll what tc make of tho afluir, ho honestly gavo it up.

THE CULTIVATOR. Sugar—Mode of Culture. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 19 February 1870

THE CULTIVATOR. Sugar-Mode of Culture. AVE havo shown that sugar cultivation and manu fuoluro may ho pursued in this colony with ovory prospoct of success by mon of modorato capital, and ovon by thoso who havo but small moans at their disposal, if they will but tako advantage of tho favourablo position in which many of thom aro placed for co-oporating together for thoir common good. It is, wo think, also clear that capital doos not require somi-slavo or miserably underpaid labour to conduct sugar plantations successfully; but that imniaiso fortunos may bo realised by caroful planters, w'Ti'ilo giving a /ino wago to labourers of thoir own ruco and faith. "Wo havo also shown that, so far from tho prico of sugar falling below a remuner- ative rato within tho present contnry, thoro is every prospect of present prices hoing maintained for many years to como, and that should tho prices bo reduced to ouo-half those now ruling they woidd still leave a margin of profit to plantors such as is...

Microscopical Examination of Sugar Cane Juice. FROM THE FRENCH OF DR. ICERY. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 19 February 1870

! Microscopical Examination of ! Sugar Cane Juice. FROM THE FRENCH OP DR. ICERT. GANE juice has at dînèrent periods been the object of numerous experiments. Chemistry has evolved the various substances of which it is composed, and has estimated moro or less correctly their nature and relative value ; it has also determined tho modifications to which each is subject under tho influence of tho agents used in the manufacture of sugar, and has thus put the planter on Iiis guard against tho causes of alter- ation which ho has to combat. But if tho chemical properties of tho juico have boon carefully considered, is is certain that its physiology has been completely neglected. Even the moro recent writings on the sub- ject contain nothing precise on this part of it. At first sight it does seem astonishing that after all the minute examinations which have been made of tho structure of the plant it should be necessary to make new micro- scopio investigation of tho juice, and that it is possi...

Tho common Beech ie a native of tho temperate zones, and is very com- mon in Groat Britain whore it is cultivated chiefly as an ornamental tree, though its timbor, and fruit called beechmast, aro utilised pretty extensively. In point of general utility howover, the common j Beech is of secondary importance ; and we recom- mend it to the notice of our landed proprietors I chiefly as an ornamental tree. The thrifty farmer, nevertheless, may find his account in cultivating a small grove of these magnificent looking trees for other purposes as well as for that of ornament. It likes a shallow so...
