ISLAND OF EAP A. - SOUTH PACIFIC OCEAN. THE ISLAND OF ilAPA. This island is situated in the South Pacific, lat. 7 deg. 37 min. S., long. 144 deg, 15 min. west, and is about 6^ miles long, . and 18 miles in circuit. It presents a cluster of high craggy mountains of volcanio formation, some of them terminating in dis- rupted peaks, and descending almost per- pendicularly to the water's edge. Between the hills that" form the mountain range are ravines and gorges clothed with shrubs and dwarf trees. The bay, surounded with hills, is attractive, and affords good anchorage ground. On each side of the bay is a village, one of which is presided over by the king (George), and the other by a chief (Etan, which is the native name for Esau). The inhabitants, mimbëringonly about '50, are in- telligent. The most of them are Christians, having been converted by the missionaries from Tahiti and Fiji, whe have visited the island. In each settlement there is a .church built in the Tahitian style, in]...

Oddities of History. INCREDIBLE TALES OF THE ANCIENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 5 July 1873

INCREDIBLE TALES OF THE ANCIENTS. SIR THOMAS BROWNE shows, from Palsepha tus's book " Concerning Tncredible Tales " " That the fable of Orpheus, by his music making woods and trees to follow him, is founded upon a crew of mad women retired unto a mountain, being pacified by his music, and caused to descend with boughs in their hands ; whence the magic of Orpheus's harp, and its power to attract the senseless trees about it. " That Medea, the famous sorceress, could renew youth, and make old men young again; being nothing else but that from the know- ledge of simples she had a recipe to make white hair black, and reduce old heads into the tincture of youth again. " The fable of Geryon and Cerberus with three heads was this : Geryon was of the city of Tricarinia (Trinacria), that is, of three heads ; and Cerberus, of the same place, was one of his dogs, which, running into a cave in pursuit of his master's oxen, Hercules per- force drove him out of that place : from whence the conceit...

BOURKE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 5 July 1873

BOURKE. THE town of Bourke, situated on the Uiver Darling, lies about 600 miles to the west of Sydney, and may be considered to be the most inland town of the colony, representing, as it does, the extreme limit of settlement to the westward. During Sir Thomas Mitchell's- exploration tour in the year 1S42, he journeyed from the Macquarie to the River Bogan, and thence down to the Darling. About twelve miles from the site of the present town of Bourke, he built an entrenched camp which he called Fort Bourke, and the town is sometimes erro . neously called Fort Bourke. The remains of the fort can still be seen, but there is nothing remarkable about it. . The town of Bourke was founded about fourteen years ago by one of the present residents, who erected a rude store of bark on the bank of the river. This was followed by the erection of the inevitable public house, and subsequently by a second. The two ' Pubs ' and the store formed for a long time the township, but as the valuable pas- ...

RICHMOND BRIDGE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 5 July 1873

EICHMOND BRIDGE. LEAVING the town of Kichmond, a walk of about two miles leads to the Hawkesbury River,' with its rows of graceful swamp oak trees, and passing over the bridge seen in our engraving, the traveller ascends the pretty rounded hills on the western bank of the river, and looking back beholds a map-like scene of many coloured fields, orchards, and farms, with the buildings usually adjoining them in the interior of Australia. The air is fresh, and will prove highly beneficial should he be able to obtain lodgings at one of the houses in the neighbourhood. When we visited the locality the owner of a fine orange grove was kind enough to accommodate us, and we shall never forget the delightful fra- grance of the blossoms, and the sweet notes of the birds when we opened our bed-room window the morning after we slept at his residence. Rising early for a walk in the orchard, we saw far below us beautiful vol- umes of white fog slowly rolling away from the low country before the B...

Chapters on Common Things No. XIV. THE POTATO. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 5 July 1873

j Chapters on Cnmrnon Wing* No. xiv; THE POTATO. THE Potato (Solanum tuberosum.) belongs to the natural order Solanáceas, and is closely related to the tobacco plant, belladonna, henbane, nightshade, ' anoS other poisonous narcotics. But although the same poisonous principle exists in the potato plant, it is confined to its stem, foliage, and fruit, and is wholly absent from its roots or underground tubers, the parts of the plant used as food. When potatos still attached to the growing plant become exposed to the light, the epi- dermis assumes a greenish colour, and the poisonous principle then develops itself. Such, potatos are totally irnfit for human food. The potato plant has a stem from one and a half to two feet high, with interrupted pinnate leaves, which are composed of from five to seven pairs of lanceolate oval leaflets, having lesser ones between them ; the flowers are bluish-white, with orange-yellow, slightly cohering anthers; which are suc- ceeded by a green globose be...

Origins and Inventions. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 5 July 1873

friging anti Indention** HORN-BOOKS.-The horn-book was the primer.of our ancestors, and down to the time of George II. common in every part of Eng- land. This book consisted of a single leaf, upon which were printed the alphabet in old English or Roman characters, a selection of words of one syllable, and then the Lord's Prayer. The leaf was pasted on a piece of wood, in shape\nd size not unlike the back of a hairbrush,''?. and over the leaf, for its préservation,^ was spread a sheet of horn, which gave it the name of horn-book. Some- times these books were called " Criss-cross rows," the derivation of which is not at first aparent. It was at the beginning of the first row of letters, which were capitals, that a figure of the cross was invariably drawn. That line, the first to be learned, came thus to be called the Christ-cross-row, and gradu- ally this name was given to the whole book. There was ordinarily a hole made in the handle of the book, by which the lesson book was tied to ...

FLIGHT OF MUTTON BIRDS OFF GAMBIER'S ISLANDS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 5 July 1873

FLIGHT OF MUTTON BIRDS OFF GAMBIER'S ISLANDS. South Australia is indented on its southern coast by two large gulfu, known respectively as Spencer's Gulf and -St. Vincent's Gulf. The latter, about 40 miles wide and 100 miles long, has on its eastern shore the port of Adelaide, situated at the mouth of the River Torrens. Separated from St. Vincent's Gulf by York Peninsula is Spencer's Gulf, a still larger sheet of water, being about 200 miles long and 55 miles wide at the entrance. Between Cape Catastrophe on the west side ©f the entrance' to the Gulf, and Cape Spencer on tho eastern side, lies the Gam- bier group of islands, the picturesque pro- montory of Wedge Island, one of the group, being a landmark to the mariner as he ap- proaches from the south-east. The cliffs of the islands comprising the group are the abode of many varieties of wild fowl, such as galls, gannets, terns, penguins, and mutton birds, the last-mentioned being com- paratively but little known except to such as S...

BABIES. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 5 July 1873

BABIES. i WHEN this article is opened by the fireside, I I foresee the commotion the title will excite. - I can hear the rustle of the maternal petti I coats as the portly owner draws the lamp nearer, to read what we say of the "little ' darlings and I see the smile of gratifica- tion that glides over Jones's grim features as he sits with his slippered feet upon the fender, and THE BABY in his lap. I can also see, as the perusal progresses, the innocent little book flung down by the furious Mrs. Jones, with the sneer of, " It's easy to see that the brute is an old bachelor, or he wouldn't write that way !" I cannot help making the avowal-and I make it at the risk of never being asked to Christmas with the Robinsons again - I cannot help avowing, I say, that I dislike babies. My aversion, however, is, I flatter myself, based on philosophical principles. We do not like to be reminded of our origin -a ci-devant tailor would not like to be asked to dine on goose-nor would a retired mark...

MANIPORA LAKE—NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 5 July 1873

j MANIPORA LAKE-NEW ZEALAND. This magnificent lake is situated in the pi'ovince of Otago, -and 120 miles from Invercargill. The first glimpse of the lake, is caught from a little hill on an undulated alluvial prairie. Prom the Beaumont tho land declines into an amphitheatre of peat fungus, moss grown ground, and Manuka > scrub. Then comes a beautiful beach stud- ded here and there with huge granite boulders. The only inhabitants of the waters of the lake are fish, and a large duck of the paradise species, The plumage of I these ducks is peculiar. The head of the ' drako is a bright bronze, the neck and a portion of the body are a bright Prussian green. The primitive feathers of the wings are of white, the secondary primitive feathers are of lustrous purple, and the tertiary feathers are of an indigo green. The female is much the same, save only her head and neck, which are white, while her breast is a bright brown. The water of the lake is broken by a series of low islands holdin...

JERVIS BAY LIGHTHOUSE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 5 July 1873

JERVIS BAY LIGHTHOUSE. This building is situated about thirty miles from the town of Nowra, in New South Wales, on tho south side of Jervis Bay, and is in the direct route of vessels proceeding from Sydney to Melbourne. The light shown is a bright revolving white and green. Thc road winds along the edges of swamps and over rocky hills, and at the time our illus- tration was made was not marked out, and - our artist and his companions were, in con sequence, obliged to put up their tent and pass the night in the bush, having been un- able to find the way before it became dark. As it was a moonlight night two of the party searched around the camp, and fol- lowed a path which they discovered. This led them, after a walk of four miles, to the lighthouse. Coming back, with their clothes and boots wet and muddy from the small streams of water they had crossed, they made a fire and cooked their supper. A bed of rushes served to sleep upon, and the wild howling of the native dogs did not lon...

THE CLUNES WATER SUPPLY. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 5 July 1873

THE CLUNES WATER SUPPLY. 1 . When the failures which have occurred in j the Governmental attempts to supply water to the country districts has become a general by-word throughout the colony, it is satisfac-, tory to be abie to record the successful efforts of private enterprise to carry out similar works. Ballarat was the first district to initiate and carry through a private scheme of water-supply, and several minor attempts in other parts of the colony fol- lowed, the Clunes scheme being the latest. Ballarat has had r,he advantage over Clunes, however, of havmg been supplied with money by the Government, upon paying a certain amount of interest on the loan. The Clunes scheme has, however, been suc- cessfully carried to an issue purely by local enterprise : one mining company-the New North Clunes-having advanced the whole of the capital required. The proposal to supply Clunes with water was initiated about four years since, principally by the mining companies, owing to the difficul...

SHOOTING THE RAPIDS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 5 July 1873

SHOOTING THE RAPIDS. New Zealand is the country of surging torrents, which, hemmed in by precipitous * banks, make navigation fraught with much danger unless the craft i» which a passage is attempted be guided by the skilful hands of j the natives. Our artist has chosen for his sketch a native canoe shooting one of the ! rapids which abound in the rivers on the west coast of New Zealand. The lofty banks rising almost perpendicular from the level of the stream, and clothed with a thick growth of brushwood, frown upon the fast rolling waters which eddy in fierce whirl- pools round the rocks which impede their furious course. A New Zealand canoe, hol- lowed out of a log, is just skimming the boiling stream as it rolls rapidly between the high land and a succession of boulders, and is emerging from the narrow passage through which the miniature Niagara rushes with an angry roar into the comparatively calm water beyond. The canoe is propelled by two na- tives, who keep their eyes steadil...

THE STAWELL JUMPING CASES. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 2 August 1873

THE STAWELL JUMPING CASES.   The mining district of Stawell has obtained   notoriety other than by the actual richness of its mining claims, the disputes between the original holders of claims and those who   wished to obtain possession having been for   a couple of months continually before the Vic- torian department of Mines, Parliament, and the law courts. It was alleged that certain of   the Stawell mines were being shepherded by the holders-that is, that the ground was not being consistently worked. After the dis- pute was heard at the local court of mines it was taken to the Supreme Court, when Judge Molesworth declared that the jumpers were entitled to take possession by virtue of their miners' rights. On the 16th June hundreds of miners assembled on the jumped claims to assist the claim holders in re-pegging the ground. The Ballarat men were determined to be prepared for a favorable decision, and left for Stawe...

. THE YOSEMITE FALLS. Yosemite valley, one of the gems of Californian scenery, is a dell of matchless cliffs and cascades, with more scenes of gran- deur and beauty than can be found within an equal space in any other part of the world. Shut in closely by walls of rock almost perpendicular, from two thousand to four thousand five hundred feet high, it has within a radius of five miles five cascades, one of which is two thousand feet high, another nine hundred and forty, another seven hun- dred, another six hundred, and another three hundred and fifty, and their waters flow through a natural meadow ornamented by beautiful trees and brilliant verdure.

IMPORTED SHEEP. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 2 August 1873

IMPORTED SHEEP. SOME cross-bred rams have lately been im- ported from Victoria, which are apparently in a very weak and sickly state. Many of them have already died, and are found to be badly infected with worms in the trochea and the lungs. Our informants tell us that these sheep are destined for Riverina. They were not taken, he says, directly across the Mur- ray, for fear of scab or disease, but brought round to Sydney, placed in what is so called Quarantine, and then, those that may be left of them, are to be sent up to their final des- tination, Riverina, through some 300 miles or more of the sheep stations, &c, in New South Wales. The Inspection of Stock department has dône its work by the eradication and pre- vention of scab, most effectually, and has preserved many sheep and much wool, but if they are incompetent to protect our valuable sheep property from other equally, or more destructive diseases, which may not only in- jure the wool, but prevent the production of...
