NOTES ON THE MONTH. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian — 5 November 1864

NOTES ON THE MONTH. Preventing Wheat (while in flower) being Damaged by Frost.—A correspondent of the Goulburn JItrald gives the following direc tions for neutralising the effects of late frosts upon wheat while in blossom " In 1818, a severe frost on the morning of Christmas Day destroyed on tLis estate about fifty acres | of wheat; the following year an equally severe frost occurred on the 26th of Deoem her; but appearances overnight having indi cated that such wonld be the esse, every- [ thing was arranged, and nearly the whole of | the wheat crop was roped before the snn rose, and in this instance it was saved; a small portion, however, aome three or four acres, which was roped after the sun rose (though only a few minutes) wss completely de stroyed. The plan adopted was to procure a ' strong horsehair rope (this is best, but any other sops will do), of each n length that three men stretching it tight might walk up ] the furrows, and, holding the rope a little higher than the kn...

—A SEVERE STORM. TO THE EDITOR OF THE AUSTRALASIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian — 5 November 1864

"A SEVERE STORM. TO THE EDITOR OP THE AOBTRA1A8IAE. Sir,—To-day I bare seen a thunderstorm of a phenomenal character. 1 left this home station - (Messrs. Scott's) about nine in the morning, to take out a small mob of sheep to one paddock, and to bring in a small mob from another..; I had disposed of the former mob, and was on the way to the latter, when the imminent proba bility of a severe storm made me hasten to reach some untenanted huts, three miles distant. A Test gloomy fabric of thunder-clouds had risen from the westward; lingered apparently for some time about midway between the horiion and the zenith; and now came rolling eastward on the wings of an awful wind. Beaching the huts a few minutes before the storm, I lud nothing to do bat to look and listen to its ap proach. Onward cams the undulations of .lightning like ooean waves; onward the majes tic march of darkness and the grand symphony of the elements; iouder and wilder song the winds among the ancient finest trees,.and...

THE NATIVE PHEASANT. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian — 5 November 1864

THE NATIVE PHEASANT. The subjoined lias been handed to us by the secretary of the Acclimatisation Society for publication:— Sir,—I do myself the honour of presenting to the notice of the Acclimatisation Society seme very remarkable, and, I believe, unre corded, peculiarities in the natural history of the native pheasant of Australia. Tire queer fact of the legs of the chick protruding, and being vigorously engaged for about a week in freeing the head and body from its shell, though an antipodean paradox, is capable of being easily illustrated, and the knowledge of which may materially assist attempts to accli matise ana rear the young pheasants. The peculiarly arid localities selected as the I habitat of this bird exempt it from the frequent visits of the naturalist. The influence and | goodwill that I possessed with various abori ginal tribes of Booth Australia, gave me the advantage of unusual facilities in obtaining the eggs and newly-batched chicks, and in ao quiring the informa...

MISCELLANEA. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian — 5 November 1864

MISCELLANEA. We understand that a movement 19 on foot among the profesional cricketers of Melbourne, with a view of re-establishing the United Victorian Eleven, for the purpose of playing matches up-country during the season. The Warehousemen's Club have engaged the services of Gid. Elliottaa professional coach, j and to keep their very excellent ground in 1 order. It is their intention to build a hand* some pavilion on the ground, when accommoda- | tion will be made for Elliott living there. The club intend, we believe, having their opening match towards the close of the present month. It is to be hoped, however, they will not be in too greatahuny to play ontheirnew ground, but wait patiently until they can do so without any fear of doing it much injury. They have gone to great expense with it, and it would be a thousand pities not to give it a lair chance.

EXPLORATION. NOTES ON THE ABORIGINES OF THE DISTRICT OF THE GLENELG. flSOK TWt JOCEHAI, OF BXPMRITIOJ. 1863.) With the aborigine! of the Glenelg district, I mi never fortunate enough to obtain a friendly interview; nor hare I myself seen them very closely. Some members of our party (1863), however, were forced into con flict with them on one occasion. Their camping plaoes, their sheS-engraving, some of their weapons, and more of .their ordinary im plements, afford an insight, limited it is trus, into their disposition and mode of life. • To a wandering habit they aeezn as prone as the natives of Ure southern shores of Aus tralia ; they do not display that terror of darkness so often observed even in the settled districts of the colony; these natives travel at night occasionally by choice; nor is this much to be wondered at when we remember how oool and pleasant night-travelling mast be to a people thoroughly acquainted with this country. But it would appear from the examination of o...

the Bsohmondites were in high glee, and there was a plentiful supply of that rongh chaff too frequently moistened with aspioe of malice —wliieh is always to be heard on the Biehmond ground. And certainly the Melbourne backers did pull lather long faoos over the state of affairs! Perhaps this caused their opponents to go in a little too oonfident, forgetting the old adage about " counting chickens," &c. Be that as it may, similar ill-luck awaited them, and by the time half their men were out they began to laugh on the other eido of their mouths: and when, with one man more than their opponents, their last wicket fell for 26, or 8 less than the M.C.C. team had made, tho "tables were completely turned," and the only consolntion left to Richmond was to moralise on the uncertainty of all things human—more especially cricket.
