EDITORIAL NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 26 February 1870

j EDITORIAL NOTES. TUE movemont for the establishment of a Bushman's Home in Adelaide has been so successful as to enable the committee to take the premises formerly occupied by Sir Charles Cooper, and arrangements for open ing tho home* "will shortly be made. There are spacious grounds connected with the premises, and they are spoken'of as likely to fulfil all the expecta* tions that the benevolent promoters of the institution entertained. "WE amderstand that a movement is about to be commenced in Sydney, having for its object the recognition in some substantial manner of tho services rendered to the colony by Mr. Robertson. We cannot, for a moment, doubt that the appeal -will be warmly responded to by all seotions of the com munity in every district of the colony. Mr. Robert son having resigned his seat in the Assembly in consequence of financial pressure, his constituents in West Sydney have resolved to re-elect him free of expense. Wo cannot believe that, under such cir cumstanc...

The Use and Abuse of Agricultural Implements. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 26 February 1870

The Use and Abuse of Agricultural Implements. IN no branch of industry have greater improvements been introduced of late years than are every whore noticable in the appliances for tilling and fertilizing the land ; and it cannot be denied that the agriculturists of Australia show a praiseworthy desire to follow tho example set them in England and America. It may be naturally supposed that so young a colony labours under disadvantages, when attempting to work up to tho state of perfection, which it has taken centuries to arrive at in the old world ; there are many inseparable reasons why we find difficulties in the way of taking tho fullest benefit out of the inventions which work to such per fection on the other side of the globe ; but precocity being certainly an attribute of the present generation, and the tendency to go head very strong among tho territorial off-shoots' of Britain, the deficiencies en tailed by extreme youth are -here got over more easily than might be expected. ...

The Destructive Principle of Treating Cane Juice. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 26 February 1870

The Destructive Principle of Treat ing Cane Juiise. MB. Thomas Scott writes to tho Queenslander as fol lows :-" I write you now, although for many years I have wholly repudiated this destructive principio of troatingcano juice, and submit whereby the entire sugar in the cane is converted into an article of very superior quality, and without a trace of molasses. "Clarification of tho juicos.-This portion of the boiler's duty ought to be so effectually performed as to bring tho " liquor " into an almost perfectly lucid state before it is drawn into the desiccating coppers. The description given of this process, in tho article referred to, doos not effect this vory important object. I will oxplain how it may be conducted. When the juice is at a heat of about 120 degrees, temper it ; then, os quickly as possible, bring it up to 210 degrees, when the fire must then be instantly drawn from beneath it ; for if, at this stage, it comes to aboil, a portion of the impuri ties in the juice whi...

THE CULTIVATOR. Sugar—Advantages of Co-operation. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 26 February 1870

THE CULTIVATOR. Sugar-Advantages of Co-operation. As to the practicability of carrying on the business of sugar for salo to the manufacturers a great deal de pends upon circumstances. There can be no ques tion that the profits of tho entire affair are large enough to be divided between grower and manufacturer ; but the amount of capital required to be invested in both pursuits are so disproportionate that neither party would, perhaps, over.be quite Birre that he Becured hiB fair share of the returns. Thus while the farmer would incur but a mere trifle of expense beyond his ordinary outlay in growing cano, he woiüa, in all probability, look with a jealous oye on the heavy profits realised by tho manufacturer. The manu facturer, on the other hand, looking only to his ex pensive machinery, and great risks would endeavour to secure the cane at the lowest posible price. Ten years ago Captain Hope, of Queensland, offered far mers 12s. per ton for whatever cane they might grow. Now, suppos...

A Voice from New Guinea. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 26 February 1870

A Voice from New Guinea. IN our last issue we republished, from a Brisbane paper, a most' in teresting account of a recent visit to New Guinea. It is curious that the two great islands which go by that name, and the nearest of which is less than a hundred miles from the Australian continent, should have remained for so very many years as they have, almost utterly unknown to tho traveller and navi gator, so far as interior exploration is con cerned. It is true that we have had, from time to time, slight notices of the place ; but since the visit of Captain Forrest, in his little vessel the Tartar galley, nearly a hundred years ago, there had been no such account of the country or its people as that communicated j by Captain Delargy, which we published last j week. In fact it has long been a standing re proach to the energetic men who, in the course of eighty years, have made Aus tralia what it is, that sb little was known of those two great islands contiguous, or of their productions...

Woolgrowers' Meeting at Mudgee. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 26 February 1870

Woolgrowers' Meeting at Mudgee. A meeting of woolgrowers was hold on Friday last at the Belmore Hotel, Mudgee. The object was tho con sideration of tho best means by which a want long felt by the woolgrowers of this district might be supplied, viz., the obtaining of reliable information respecting the disposal of wool in tho home markets ; the tracing of wool grown in the district through the broker to the consumer-thus ascertaining the manufactures for which it is most in request-and other important matters connected with the subject. The meeting was entirely a conversational one, and no preciso report of tho proceedings is given ; but as tho decision arrived at is one of considerable importance to the woolgrowers of Mudgee and its vicinity, tho Western Post lays before tho public the objects sought to bo attained. A gentleman of veiy long experience in pastoral mat ters in these colonies, who is about to proceed to England by the mail steamer, has offered, on veiy liberal tenn1», ...

Foot Rot in Sheep. SYNOPSIS OF LECTURE DELIVERED BY J. POTTIE, VETERINARY SURGEON, TO IIB PUPILS. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 26 February 1870

Foot Rot in Sheep. SYNOPSIS OF LECTURE DELIVERED BY J. POTTIE, VETERINARY SURGEON, TO IIB PUPILS. THE term foot root is a common namo for a i very common disease ' affecting tho feet of sheep j hut it is hy no means an expressive name. Anatomically, physiologically, and chemically, scarcely two parts of a .sheep's foot bear the slightest resemblance to each other, and were it not double-footed, not even two parts would be ! found organically and functionally alike. Look at that hard horny hoof, destitute of all nervous force and blood ; compare that with the thin loaves or lamina) that lino its outer surface and what earthly resemblance do they bear ? The latter thin, delicato, tender, and sonsitivo ; the former thick, hard, tough, durable, and horny material. Strange that sub stances apparently so different should bo sb closely linked. Further still : look at these tough, stout, ligamentous, bands that bind one bono to another, set them side by side with the band of glands that sec...

SHARP PRACTICE. (To the Editor of the Town and Country Journal.) [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 26 February 1870

SHARP PRACTICE. . ' ^ (To the Editor ofthcToion and Country Journal.) . ,. Sm-On Saturday last a match was commencea DO- .... tween the Caxton and Newtown Clubs, and, during tho innings of the Newtown Club a storm arose, and the Caxton umpire, together with tho majority of the team, ran away from the field. One of tho batsmen followed suit, and the ball being returned from tho field, his wicket was put down. An appeal boing made to thoro- . maining umpire, he was given out. To say the-least of it.it must bo called very sharp practice, and detrimental to cricket, oven if the umpire s ' decision was right ; but, I think, with only, one hjnpire, r tho game cannot bo played, and, consequently the deck sion must have been wrong. Cricketers ought to play the gamo as it is intended, and not to take every little ' possible point, and sooner than resort to such paltry tricks they lind bettor not play at all. It is through snob points as these that such a very bad feeling exists amongst om- c...

I VICTORIAN ELEVEN V. NEXT SIXTEEN. ! Tilia match, played on tho ground of the M. C. 0. on Saturday afternoon tho 19th instant, as a practice match for tho approaching intercolonial contest, ' attracted a considerable number of spectators, and some very good cricket was exhibited. Gibson, at .the wickets, was in his best form, and tho fielding of Figgis, Phillips, and Gordon, was excellent. Gordon's . bowling average was also remarkably good, showing 93 balls for 32 runs, 4 wickets, 1 maiden. Tho Now South Wales devon wero practising on tho ground from half-past 9 o'clock until 1 o'clock, and evidently mean business. They will also occupy the ground; to day. Tho crowds who assembled at the recent athletic sports meeting have injured the ground a good deal, and in consequence thcro was a very bad wicket ' for tho match on Saturday, but there is a piece in reservo which will provide an excellent wicket for tho intercolonial. The afternoon was occupied with1 the first innings of the si...

Well Boring and Pumping Machinery. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 26 February 1870

Well Boring and Pumping Machinery. AN interesting paper on ,the above subject was re cently read before the Institution of Mechanical En gineers, at Birmingham, England, by William Mather. In the operation of excavating boreholes for wells and other purposes, the principle adopted and carried out by the writer for all depths of - boring, has been the use of a rope for working the boring tool in tho hole ; and this principle obviates the serious expense and delay attending the plan of using rods for working the tool when great depths of boring have to be executed. In the plan described in the paper the boring tool is worked Dy a flat hemp rope, which ÍB wound around the drum of a winding engino, and, on quitting the drum, passes over a large pulley, carried in a fork at the top of the piston-rod of a vertical single-acting ßteam cylinder. The .boring tool having been lowered by the winding drum to the bottom of the boreholo, the rope is clamped secure at that length ; steam is then a...

' . _ NEW TOWN HAW,, SYDNEY. New Town Hall, Sydney. THE foundation-stone of this bunding, in course of erection,-was laid by his Royal Highness the Duke , of Edinburgh on the occasion of his first visit to Sydney. The site was granted under an Act of the Legislature to the Municipal Council of Sydney prior to which transfer it had formed a portion of the grounds attached to St. Andrew's Cathedral, and known as tho Cathedral Close. The building, of which we give an illustration, has a frontage east of 153 feet to George-street, tho principal business thoroughfare in Sydney, from which alignment it sets back 40 feet, collimating with tho east front of the Cathedral. A space of about equal width and 270 feet in length, has been reserved on either flank of the building for ornamental planting. The building as planned would, extend in length 246 feet west from the frontage. The existing contract, however, comprises only the foundations and base . mont ? of what ? may he termed the busine...

Mr. Robertson's Retirement from Parliament. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 26 February 1870

Mr. Robertson's Retirement from Parliament. AS many anticipated, Mr. Robertson has folt it his duty, under the pressure of private circumstances, to resign into the hands of the doctors of West Sydney tho trust which they lately, with such generous confidence, com mitted to him, and he is no longer a member of Parliament. There can be no hesitation, howover, in affirming that his late consti tuents retain full confidence in his integrity as a public man. Commercial difficulties may overwhelm the most upright, espe cially if, . with a greater regard for a grand future which they may be instrumental in forming than for immediate gain, they enter into speculations which turn out to bc unfortunate. There, can be no doubt that a strict attention to tho wholesome but somewhat cramped advice of Mr. Micaw bcr would always enable a man to steer clear of pecuniary embarrassments. He might live on to a green and useless old age with the respect of bankers and the veneration of tho ultra-pruden...
