THE AUSTRALIAN Town & Country Journal SYDNEY, SATURDAY, FEB. 26, 1870. Immigration Schemes. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 26 February 1870

THE AUSTRALIAN SYDNEY, SATURDAY, FEB. 26, 1870. Immigration Schemes. IN a country where, as in New Sou' h Walès extensive territory and abundant resourcet are to be seen side by side with a scanty population and inadequate appliances for the utilisation of natural products, the question of immigration must be continually'coming up for consideration, among those who concern themselves with the public welfare. There is probably no other question which has occupied the thoughts of all public spi ited men in Australia so largely as this, and is most desirable that the discussion of the subject should lead to more comprehensive views than those enunciated by some of the speakers during the debate'of Tuesday evening last. In every sphere of human duty and enterprise, the association of the ideal with the practical is of vital consequence ; and in none more so than in the matter of colonisation. . In the recent dehate most of the speakers limited their remarks to some of the incidental adv...

LITERATURE. The Laureate's New Poem. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 26 February 1870

LITERATURE. The Laureate's New Poem. Tho literary ovont of tho month, far and away ahovo all others, has boon tho publication of a new volume of poems by Tonnyson. How Btrong a hold tho Lauroato has upon tho feelings of English readers may bo gathered from tho fact that over 30,000 copies of tho now book were subscribed for .hoforo publica tion. Tho demand at homo will doubtless tend to lcavo a short supply for tho colonies at first, and wo aro suro our roadors will thank us for giving the.m somo lengthened extracts. Tho result of reading thoso must necessarily load to a desire being formed to possess tho book in its entirety. Tho "Holy.Grail," tho chief poom of tho volume, occupies about two thirds of tho whole. -Tho first part is devoted to tho coming of Arthur to the court of Loodogran, King of Camelinrd, whose daughter i Guinovore is doscrihod as " fairest of all flesh on earth." | The Holy Grail, from which tho title of tho poem is dorivod, is doscrihod as Tho cup, tho cup Itse...

MINING SURVEYORS. To the Bditor of the. Town and Country Journal. Sir,-From my reading of your really first-class journal I am lod to believe you must know something about everytliing. Hence I am led to ask "Can you give a receipt for catching a mining surveyor ? I infer thoir oxistcnco from tho fact that any apiuication for a mining lease, must bo accompanied by a foo of two pounds (£2), for the survey. Now, as I am comparatively a strangerto mining matters in Now South Wales, andam unable to obtain tho desired information hero, I boneo appeal to you, and tho following'facts will show tho services of one aro urgontly necessary. A number of leases havo been taken up herc in tho last few months, and aro working in a bona fide manner. In each casu tho survey fee has been paid ; but wp to tho present time it cannot bo said to bo for work and labour done.

Cheese and Butter. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 26 February 1870

Cheese and Butter. - COLONIAL dairymen judging by tho prico at present niling in this city for butter, a most important artiolo of consumption, cannot bo realising money at a vory rapid rate. Any ono who watches the commercial reports of tho daily newspapers may observe that, during tho last" 'month or two, salt butter, of sound quality, has been disposed of by auction at as low as 3d. per lb. To most people it will occur that this decline hi prices from last year's rates will prove its own corrective beforo long ; cither by preventing dairy men from making butter in such quantities, for a time at least, or by causing a run on tho article, by pastry cooks and confectioners, to whom the prico3 usually obtained hitherto have rendered it partially inacces sible. Now, however, it being almost the cheapest oleaginous substance in the market, while being ono of tho most useful for various household purposes, as well as for thoso of the professed pastrycook and confec tioner, wo should oxp...

Poultry Keeping. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 26 February 1870

Poultry Keeping. j UNLESS you have a good run for poultry they do nól pay ; that is on a large scale. It is useless to expect that when cramped up in a small space, having no op portunity to seek fox food,.they should cost' as little tc keep as when they are, so io speak, cast on their own hands. Still, even when the run is limited, the keep, ing of poultry on a small Beale is productive of profit. Say you have sufficient space for a dozen hons and twice the number of ducks. In tho laying season and if you feed well this will last ten xnonths out of tho year-tho ducks will yield you, say ono dozen eggs per diem ; the hons, say half a dozen. At no time aro fresh eggs worth less than a penny a piece. In the whiter, and when scarce, they will ofton bring 3s. per dozen. But taking tho price to be but ls. per dozen, and we have a return of 10s. per week from the twenty four dueks and twelve hens. Tho cost of feeding these liberally, on maize and pollard, will bo at the rate bf ono penny ...

Grubbers and Scarifiers. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 26 February 1870

Grubbers and Scarifiers. A TrtlAii of grubbers and scaxifiers at tue Viotorian model farm, on Thursday, drew together a rather large assemblage of farmers and persons otherwise interested in agricultural implements. Amongst those who con tended for tho premiums offered by tho Board of Agri culture wore Messrs. G. Grant, James Grant and Co. ; Hugh Lennon, Edwards, Braid, Robinson and Co/, and Wood of Geelong. Tynon, of Ballarat, was. present with a double mould-board plough, scarifier, &c, but he arrived on the "ground to lato to compete. Tho work' dono appears from tho report in the Argus to have varied in qtiality, but appeared much the same on the surface, except where the lengthy implements jumped over tho hollows without driving their teeth in the required depth. The judges on the occasion were Messrs. Morley, Dalgleish, Kinnan, and Buchanan, and they had to examino very closely with a spade the patches of work done by each machine before they could decide which was best...

Exotic Trees and. Plants Suitable for Australia. No. 8.—THE ALDER. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 26 February 1870

Exotic Trees and. Plants Suitable for Australia. No. 8.-THE ALDElt. . I TíIR Allier ia distributed over a considerable portion of Asia, America, and Europe; and it is oven found in Africa, in latitude north ¡50 to .'53 dogrees. It is indi genous to Groat Britain, and is ono of the commonest trees, being found on all river banks, and in all moist swampy ground, and morrasses. In such localities, ^however, it doos not attain its greatest development; _ "but is a rather scraggy, stunted-looking treo, seldom exceeding twenty or thirty feet in hoighfc, and frequently it is not much largor than a tall bush. Where the soil is deep and rich, but is not too wet, the Alder reaches a height of from fifty to eighty feet, and a circumference of fifteen or moro feet. In fact, the Alder in rich, well-drained soil, is a different tree altogether in appearance from that which grows on tho river banks, and on oozy ill-drained ground, though it is extremely doubtful whether tho largo tree is much moro...

J. 0., and the expressed de termination of Mr. Stephen Brown to handicap no more, leaves Mr, A. Thompson solus as an adjuster ofweights for the Randwick Meetings; and, as a matter of course, some new appointment must he made, as I don't suppose Mr. Thompson would like to be saddled with the undivided responsibility. Both here and in. Victoria there have been changes from nmetotime in the mode of choosing the handicap pers.
