THE YEOMAN'S PAGE. TILLAGE—OLD IMPLEMENTS AND NEW. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian — 12 November 1864

THE YEOMAN'S PAGE. TILLAGE—OLD IMPLEMENTS AND NEW. Such might be the heading or title of a long and instructive treatise, but in a short and ephemeral article such as this, we can of course ouly glance in a superficial way at the general changes j which have taken place, and which are likely to follow, from the course which . experiments and practice are now enter ing upon in the effort to discover the best mode of tilling and preparing the soil mechanically. As compared with the improvement in the tools and implements used in other occupations, the change from the limb of a tree with a short-pointed branch for a share, to the plough as now used has not been very great, and more progress has been made flic last generation or two than in many centuries before. The crooked branch gradually became the plough, as mechanics gained skill and had better material to work upon; and from the apparent impossibility of finding a substitute for tbis implement, men hare got very much into the bab...

THE PRICE OF MONEY IN ENGLAND. (FROM THE ARGUS NOV. 5.) [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian — 12 November 1864

THE PRICE OF MONEY IN ENGLAND. iVBOM TBS A&OCt EOV. b.) It is now nearly three months ago since we called attention, in onr leading columns, to some curious circumstances in connexion with the new supplies of gold. Founding our remarks upon an excellent article in the Manchetter Guardian, we pointed out that, what ever the effects of the H new gold" might have been in raising the prices of commodities, its influence upon the rates of interest and discount had been pre cisely the reverse of what had been an ticipated. In other words, we showed that the value of gold as a loanable com modity had been enhanced instead of diminished by the Australian and Californian supplies. The minimum rate of discount at the Bank of England was proved, on the authority of trust worthy statistics, to have maintained a far higher average in the Beven years subsequent to the gold discoveries than in the seven years immediately pre ceding them; and periods of finan cial pressure, instead of decre...

THE WAR IN NEW ZEALAND. (FROM THE ARGUS, NOV. 9.) [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian — 12 November 1864

THE WAR IN NEW ZEALAND. (FBOM TBI AMOS, IOV. 9.) The state of affairs in the northern island of New Zealand is singular be yond precedent in the history of British colonies. Some of the later acts of the Government, or rather of the Governor, may even make us doabt whether it is the English or the Maories who are the rebels. The popular notion has been hitherto that a war is being waged in the name ot Her Majesty against certain native tribes who have disputed her sovereignty, broken her laws, and committed outrages upon her peaceful British subjects. But the mind of Sir George Grey is evidently disturbed by the same misgivings which have haunted the hearts of some of the pbilo-Maories in the British Parliament. He is evi dently not quite sure that it is right to make war at all, and he has hit upon a most original and cha racteristic policy, by which, while continuing in his allegiance to his Sovereign, he may at tire same time dis play his sympathy for the Maori. Bor rowing someth...

Some sharp skirmishing has been going on within the lart two or three days between the Customhouse officer and Mr. Bopwood.

Mr. Gordon is in comrunnlcatlon with bis Government cm the subject, and Mr. Hopoood has told him if it prouonnoes in favoarof the turnstile, he will dismantle the bridge, and take it away from its present position.

SPIRIT OF THE PRESS. TRANSPORTATION. (FROM THE ABOVE, NOV. 9) [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian — 12 November 1864

SPIRIT OF THE PRESS. TRANSPORTATION. (rBOM ma abovb. aov. 9.) In the middle of lest August was issued from WMtehall a circular letter to the judges, explaining the mode in which convicts sentenced to penal servi tude in Great Britain will hereafter he i treated. These new regulations have a twofold interest to us here. Primarily w e are concerned, and very nearly con cerned, in them, because they ate re garded as paving the way to the" abo lition of transportation, and as consti tuting a system of secondary punishment which seems to be the only practi cable alternative to it The Timet, speaking of them as very expres sive of the embarrassments by which the question of punishments has lately been attended, observes that a variety of causes have combined to weaken the arm of justice, until the law has lost half its terrors. Capital punishment is virtually abolished in all cases except those of " wilful, deliberate, and unmiti •' gated murder and "transportation, " which, at any rate i...

THE VINEYARD. NOTES ON THE MONTH. Stopping or pinching off the end* of shoots 1 arrests the farther growth of the osae or stem for the time being.

©PEN COLUMN. POPULAR NAMES IN NATURAL i* HISTORY. Sir,—It is gratifying to find 60 observant ' * naturalist as -Mr. Gerard Krefft admitting the importance of a nominal reformation.1 But I cannot yield assent to big reasoning against my proposal for an aboriginal nomenclature. Has ha not laid nndae stress on tbevarietyof aboriginal names ? S.une Australian animals, without doubt, have a widaiyeztended range over the continent, as in. the species cited of the bandicoot and tiger cat;, bat a wide diffusion of the same species is not generally characteristic of tbe Australian fauna—witness tbe kangaroo family. Granting now his position as a ques tion of fact, however, ia mere variety in aboriginal designation valid as an objection against a popular use of the same ? Variety has usually been considered an advantage in 1 giving richness to language. Tbe objection, and it is a very strong one, that prevails agalnat the increase of synonyms in scientific discourse surely does not rule here....
