Mr. Randall has rondercd himself rather prominont recently in connection with his efforts for a uniform intercolonial tariff, tho restrictions at prosont imposed by tho fiscal systems of Victoria and South Australia having boen found a serious barrier to tho expansion of tho trade. At tho International Exhibi- tion of South Kensington in 1862, and at tho Paris Industrial Exhibition in 1867, Mr. Randall was awarded a modal for his rod wino ; and ho received a modal for his white wino at tho Melbourne Exhibi- tion of 1866.

Dubbo, [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT,] I PASTORAL.-We had a good shower of rain last week, hut a day or two's heavy rain would net he unac- ceptable either to tho Crown tenant or tho agriculturist. Still, there is no complaint that either water or grass is scarce, though this month, the worst in the year, has been nearly a dry, withering ono from the beginning, and oppressively hot. I may here add that every squat- ter with whom I have spoken on the subject-and many of them visit Dubbo--quite agree with the preliminary movement in Sydney of a aquuttcrs' organisation. They look upon it as tho base of united action when tho time comes to represent the pastoral interest us far as it relates to tho occupation of Crown lands." Of course, this moans a reduction of rent, security of tenure, and tho action of a well-rcprcsontcd committee to supervise pastoral interests in this colony generally. AGRICULTURE.-There is nothing to complain of un- der this head where it exists near towns, or whoro...

Preservation of Stone. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 19 February 1870

Preservation of Stone. Tina subject, which has attracted tho attention of so many chemists, scorns now to have been brought to a very saccossful point. The now process was discovered by Messrs. Dont and Brown, of tho Chemical Depart- ment, Woolwioh. Their method consists in tho appli- cation of a solution of oxalate of alumina to tho stone. The experiments dato from December, 18(15, and the results they hnvo now obtained aro most encouraging. Tho process is applicable to various kinds of stono. Oxalate of alumina is readily soluble in water, and the solution, which is simply applied with a brush, is mado of a strength varying with tho porosity of tho matorinl to winch it is to bo applied. The specimens exhibited as evidences of tho success of the process aro left in tho original condition at one end, and have been prepared with tho solution at tho other.

"Wo gave a sort of half promise that we would do BO, but having taken leave of the heavy tragedian, the low comedian, and tho lady stars, we thought we had had enough of them, and resolved upon passing a quiet evening at homo, going to bed early, and so refreshing ourselves after our fatigue BB much as wo could.

This amount by no means indicates tho capacity of tho State, and its quality is ' far from hoing what it should bo. Porhaps a thousand mon aro interested directly in wine-making. They do not all manufacturo wino, tho majority only furnish- ing tho grapes at tho presses, selling thom or having them worked into wino for their own usc. :Of all theso men not fifty havo any scientific knowledge of wine making, or nny desire to scok out tho best: grapes and tho best soils, California will bo slow to 'dovelo]) her full capacity in wino-making because of ho^ surprising adaptability to if-.
