COASTWISE SHIPMENTS, [Newspaper Article] — Portland Guardian — 24 October 1876
COASTWISE SHIPMENTS, The Banner of Belfast takes us severely to task for a recent review of tihe shipping returns of Belfast and Portland, and would have the public believe that our remarks were dictated by " latent jealousy" rather than a love of fair play. The Banner quotes from us at some length, and with com mendable accuracy,.but with a curious "disregard of all the rules of argument -save those supposed to appertain to the femiqine gender--contents itself with a simple denial of facts which a perusal of the quotation must prove to be facts that are absolutely undeni able. After quoting us at some length our contemporary says:-" The " veracity of our shipping agents is " impeached, and the extent of our " export trade seriously under-rated in " the vain attempt to show that Port " land as a seaport can compete with " Belfast. If the shipping agents of " Portland choose to under-rate the " values of their exports so seriously " as they appear to have been, surely we are not resp...

THE GALE. [Newspaper Article] — Portland Guardian — 27 October 1876
TIlE GALE. Most people were awoke by the gale of last night, and the velocity of the wind was very unusual. From the Observatory we learn that the highest velocity, at 2.15 this morning, and lasting for over ten minutes, was about sixty miles an hour. The wind ranged high from 14 0. to ., The average velocity, between 2 and 3, was twenty. eight miles an hour, the direction all the time being from N.N.W. The highest recorded velocity of the wind, at Melbourne Observatory, is about sorventy-two miles an hour, which was reached in the gale blowing when the Duke of Edinburgh laid the founds. tion stone of the Oollingwood Library, in December 1867. At that time walls were blown down. During the late storm at Sydney, when the City of Melbourne put back with her race. horses, _ and the Dandenong was wrecked, the N.S.W. Govornmont Astronomer found by htis instruments that the gale had reached 153 mils an hour, but scientifio men regard this as a mistake. Fanoy a hurrionae bllwing two and a ...
