STRANDING OF THE MINNA BELL. [Newspaper Article] — Portland Guardian — 14 July 1876

STRANDING OF THE MINNA BELL. Ship owners, after a'long interval, have at last favoured us with a glaring illustration of how the reputation of the port was destroyed long years ago. The present experience, as far as Portland is concerned, is by no means a new one, but the odds are that the investi gation of the stranding of the Minna Bell will, instead of injuring the reputation of the port, confirm its now established reputation of never hlaving been as "black as it was painted." Early on Wednesday last th e Minua Bell left the jetty, at which site had been unload ing, and put to sea,-a south wind blowing the while. She sailed in the direction of tilhe Narrawong coast, and to everyone's astonish ment bore up again in the direction of Port land, making direct for the Julia Percy steamer, which was at anchor on the usual holding ground. Here, as far as we can learn, the schooner "missed stays"-not once but twice-but contrived at last to run foul of the steamer, carrying away some of ...

TABLE TALK.   NORTH- WESTERN CANAL -It will be seen by advertisement that a   public meeting is to be held at Mans Hotel on the evening of the 18th inst, whereat the practicability and desirability of establishing a vast canal system through Victoria will be discussed.

THE CONDAH PLOUGHING MATCH. 12TH JULY, 1876. [Newspaper Article] — Portland Guardian — 14 July 1876

THE CONDAH PLOUGHING MATCH. 12th JULY, 1876. Only those conversant with the working of agricultural societies in the Home country can properly estimate the vast practical importance of the first ploughing match held at Condah on the 12th inst., and the public spirit manifested in the getting of it up, and the straightforward and honorable way in which the promoters carried it out, reflect credit on the district, and promise to be of immense service to those young men on whose skill much of the prosperity of the country depends in the future. The ground selected was a fallow paddock on the farm of Mr James Dunn, situated on the Breakaway Creek. The field is on a rising ground adjacent to the Condah Swamp, but as the ploughmen could not see from the bottom to the top of the field the disadvantages were apparent, and another year a more suitable site for a match should certainly be chosen. The ground itself was a rich black loam, and the ploughing, where no stone or tree obstructions o...

PENAL ESTABLISHMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Portland Guardian — 18 July 1876

PENAL ESTABLISHMENTS. The annual report of the Inspector. fieneral of Penal Establishments was last evening presented to the Assembly From itwe extract the following: The number of prisoners in confine ment on the 31st December, 18T5, was 1638, 24 in excess of thus(e in custody at the correspon.ting period of 1874; the increase consisting of only 9 con victed persons, the remaining 15 being simply' under detention. The daily average for 1875 was also greater than during the previous year by 65, and the receipts were larger by 283 ; comprising 218 convicted and 55 unconvicted persous. It is gratifying, however, to find by return No. 2 that, ,ntwithstand. --.iug the increase of rumbers, there is a reduction in the prisoners confined for the more serious offences, as well as those under correspondingly long sentences. The 6484 convicted persons, or individuals who were afterwards con victed, were received on 8550 separate occasions--some several time-during the year; and of 6133 convic...

MELBOURNE. Friday, July 14. [Newspaper Article] — Portland Guardian — 18 July 1876

MELBOUR NE. (FnoM OUR OW; OORRESPOND)ENT.) Friday, July 14. "They love darkness better than light." They pant not for the delights of publicity,. and they scorn the public designs oe the malignant aristocrats of the Press, who impugn their grammar and hint that their English is unnecessarily peppered with aspirates. So they have resolved upon ex cluding the demons of shorthand for (h)ever and (b)evcr, and last night thelirproceedings were conducted in peace. 'Then it was that in silent and admiring conclave they listened to the orriblo (h)apostrophos of (h)Oliver, gloated over the intellectual ramblings of Staff, and felt, with Yeomans, how delightful a thing it was to be ignorant of political economy. They, the self appointed National Reform League of Victoria, the very scorn of the people whom they profess to hoodwink, have resolved that in future their parody of Parliament shall be a secret tribunal delighting in the unpub lished mixture of good gin and bad English. How vast is t...

VITII VIIICII IS INCORPORATED THE s PORETLAND EXPRESS." To Protect our Rights -- ot to Infringe upon those of Others. TUESDAY, JULY 18. THE EASTERN WAR CLOUD. Tossc who have lived for several years in this culony will have some times noticed how, in a dry season, all the indications of a downpour of rain.usually come to nothing. Those signs, which in a wet season are unfailing, are dissipated in a moment, and the sky is again clear. But it is also noticeable that the storm, though long in coming, bursts without fail at last. Somewhat similar are the signs and tokens of the outburst of war over the decay of the Turkish Empire. At times it would seem as if the evil day could not possibly be averted any longer. Less than a week ago the publication in these colonies of the Berlin note to Turkey indicated the certainty of the outbreak of hostilities, in which the three great northern powers of Europe would be ranged on one side, and England, with France, on the other. A day or two later ...
