Henry Redwood Jnr.
STRAW CONSUMING ENGINE.
On Tuesday last we paid a visit to Mr. Henry Redwood's farm at Spring Creek with the view of inspecting the new Engine and Thrashing apparatus lately imported by a kind of joint-stock company of Spring Creek farmers.
The thing was really a most decided success. We gathered from our courteous conductor that the Threshing Machine and Elevator contained all the latest improvements, and as we watched the speed and facility of their work we felt a sort of contempt for the old fashioned mode of threshing with the flail, a job which generally lasted throughout the winter, in the "good old times."
