Seals and Sea Bears. [Newspaper Article] — Dungog Chronicle : Durham and Gloucester Advertiser — 20 March 1894

Seals and Sea Bears. Concerning the sea bears, or fur seals, and the sea lions, or hair seals of the Antarctic very little is known. The former have an abundant soft, silky under fur, are black when young, ar.a ultimately yellow ish or whitish grey colour ; and the latter- — the sea lions — have no under fur, but only coarse, hard, stiff hair ; they are yel lowish or reddish brown, dark when young, but become ligh ter as age advances. The f roups generally live apart, ut have the same geographi cal distribution. They are gre garious, polygamous, and the males - are from three to five times as large as the females. They differ very markedly from true seals in having the power to turn their hind limbs forward, and thus use them for locomotion on land ; the pre sence of a small external ear is another characteristic. Of the Alaska seal herd, Mr H. W. Elliott gives the following graphic description, which may be extended to the southern herds : 'The fighting between the old males for th...

Passing Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Dungog Chronicle : Durham and Gloucester Advertiser — 20 March 1894

Passing Notes. Mistakes will happen in the' best regulated families, so that we need not be Burprisod that they should occa sionally occur in Parliament. One is puzzled, however, to know how a Co lonial Treasurer could mistake a Bank Notes Bill for a Stamp Duties Bill. Treasurer s are supposed, to Know an about bank notes and stamp duties, nor are the words at all similar. The House too, must have been in a precious fog, or occupied with some extremely interesting matters, for on its being put to the vote that the Bank Notes Bill should be withdrawn, mem bers 'by their voices agreed to thus con sign the Bank Notes Bill to obscurity. There was a sudden and rude awaken ing however, and members who may have been chuckling in their sleeves over thus getting quit of the Bank Nftes Bill, found that it was all a mistake, and notwithstanding Mr Pegan's ob jections, the speaker rectified the blunder in some formal way. The question arises, however, to ordinary people, as to what state of min...

Other Suns and Worlds. [Newspaper Article] — Dungog Chronicle : Durham and Gloucester Advertiser — 20 March 1894

Other Suns and. Worlds. I 'r In the constellation of Her cules there is a small dull speck which looks like a star ; but use a telescope of sufficient power, and there is revealed to you one of the nio9t wonderful effects in all the michtv dome of heaven. The mint star breaks into a sphere like a clus ter of suns, ana they are per fectly symmetrical in arrange ment. From centre to circum ference an inconceivably vast space is enclosed, and the mighty suns that make. that sphere number 14,000, and have ..a diameter of 45,000,000,000 of miles. Let us suppose that the distance of each from the other is 9,000,000,000 of miles. .Now, . by analogy, each and every one of these stars, or suns — and it is a fair inference — they are all of them the centres of separate systems of worlds like our solar system. Imagine then a world like ours revolving about one of those suns placed in the centre of this immense sphere, and there would then be a light on such a world, derived from its own sun pr...

Local and General.] Nei& v. Hennit. — This wa9 an ac tion for trespass, particulars of which appeared in our last issue. His Honor delivered judgement in this matter. It would appear he said that plaintiff had no wish to come to court ; he did tho best he could to Bet tho bonndarv Fence between thom put up. Without any provocation he appeared to have been grossly insulted ; the son seemed to have taken up tho cudgels on behalf of the father in a way he should not have done. Tloth father nnd son dis puted plaintiff's title to tho land, when they had not the slightest grounds for doing so. At the same time he did not think pluintiff had Buffered to any thing like the extent he said ho did. He would give a verdict for plaintiff for £15, with costs of seven witnesses^ Coobbei Bridoe. — Op.

Australian Honey. [Newspaper Article] — Dungog Chronicle : Durham and Gloucester Advertiser — 20 March 1894

Australian Honey. A writer in ' The Colonies and India ' says : — ' I am glad to Bee in a well known organ of the London gro cery trade, a letter from Mr John Plummer, of Sydney, on the subject of Australian honey. Thence it would appear that ere long this fine food will bo following in tbe wake of New South Wales dairy produce, as the forty thousand hives of the parent colony aro now producing nearly a million pounds of honey a year.
