The7monthly escort in charge of Mr. :Falconer,, of the Bank of Victoria, and two- troopers left Walhalla for Mel bourne on the 18th inst., conveying ,26130z 4dwts. 3grs. of gold. .Only two tenders were received for driving- the tunnel required by .the Tambo and Bairnsdale Company and these will be considered at the next meet ing of the directors. Another bore (the seventh) was put up on Thursday from the drive of the Deep Leads Grand Junction Company, Ararat, 216 feet from the shaft. Thir teen feet of reef was passed through, when four feet of washdirt was met with. It was found then that a large boulder prevented further progress. There was a fair prospect of gold. The ground shows a rise of five feet from' the last bore a distance of twenty feet. The deepest mine in the world, ac cordiog to Professor H. Haefer, .,f the Academie, Imperiale-des Mines, is the Pribrand silver mine in Bohemia. The lowest depth is nearly 3,300ft. below the surface. At this depth the temper...

OUR IIENI)CI LE'I'I'EII. (FrROM ouR OwN CORnsESPONDEiNT.) Thursday, July 20. Visited with alternate heavy frosts and shirwecrs of snow we are fairly in for a severe winter on this highland. Poor stock, in consequence, are gradually succumbing to the climatic severity. However, agricultural farmers are mostly jubilant over the great number of acres in fine condition they have succeeded in placing under crop. Eveh with the want of a regular market with which they have to contend; the poor man can not do better than till his bit of ground, at other employment is not to be had in this quarter sufficiently-remunerative to enable him to live decently, and the poor people on the other side of the border have the drawlback put upon them of 5s duty if they shou'd venture to send their beasts to your district, as they have no market of their owln. lJust fancy Mr. Berry coming to preach his doctrine of protection to them.

THE HOPGROWING INDUSTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Bairnsdale Advertiser and Tambo and Omeo Chronicle — 25 July 1882

TILE IOI'PGROWING INDUIISTRY. We have received from Mr. M. Landy, of Bringolong, who is an experienced hopgrower, the following communication, which he is desirous of having publishel for the benefit of all connected with the industry : " Having recently obtained one of Cockerell's patent cultivators, No. 4, specially adapted for hop culture, I think it only right for the benefit of other growers, to express my opinion of it. I thilnk it is decidedly (from the trial I have had) the very best implement yet introduced for hop culture, being light in draught, effectually working all the soil and consequently destroying all the weeds. My opinion at present is that it will save 50 per cent. in working hop grounds. As I am not aware of its being yet introduced into the district, 1 hasten to make known its advantages to my fellow hoplgrowers." Mr. Landy has likewise interested himself on the subject of procuring a supply of labor for picking time. On this question lie writes as follows: "A...

THE CRISIS IN EGYPT. (ARGUS TELEGRAM.) LONDON, 20th July. [Newspaper Article] — Bairnsdale Advertiser and Tambo and Omeo Chronicle — 25 July 1882

THE CR ISIS IN EGYPT. (ARGUe TELEGRAM.) LONDON, 20th July. The Egyptian force under the com mand of Arabi Pasha is increasing in strength, and is assuming a very menac ing attitude. The conference of tihe Powers sitting at Constantinople has decided that the Suez Canal is outside the Egyptian question, and should be treated separately.-The Porte has at length intimated its consent to a Turkish occupation of Egypt. The conditions ot the occupation have yet to be settled. With a view to arriving at an amicable arrangement of the terms upon which the Sultan will undertake the pacifica tion of Egypt, the Porte has suggested that a fresh conference of the powers should be summoned to decide as to the course to be pursued.-Taking advan tage of the delay of the British in re newing operations against him, Arabi Pasha has completed the erection of formidable fortifications at Kafradowar. He has also received reinforcements of troops and has brought his army into a reasonable state of discip...

OUR OMEO LETTER. Friday, July 21. [Newspaper Article] — Bairnsdale Advertiser and Tambo and Omeo Chronicle — 25 July 1882

OUR OMEO LE'IT'ER. (rom OUR0 OWN CORRESPONDENT.) Friday, July 21. The Shire 'elections are beginning to excite considerable interest, although it is rot definitely known- who are the coming men. There are two certain• vacancies-those of Messrs. Fitzgerald and Cunningham-and rumour has it that a third will be caused by the resig nation of Councillor Chauncy, which it is said will take place with the view of counteracting the threatened action to oust made by our energetic Councillor Coughlan. This gentleman asserts that his object in becoming a legislator was to see that all shire matters were carried out in accordance with the Act, without fear or favor to anyone. No one will attempt to say that this is not a laudable ambition, and so long as matters are not overstrained will wish him the success his endeavours merit. A serious accident occurred on Sunday to Mrs. Sims, of Tongio, as she and her young son were proceeding to Bindi with a horse and dray. Through some neglect on the par...

NOTES FIROI THE TAIIIIO. (RFnO OUR OWNa cOnnRRSPONDNT.) Saturday, July 22. Could not some of your shipowners see their way clear to run a vessel up the Tambo at regular intervals, say, even fortnightly, if it would not pay to run weekly, for I hear outcries in all directions about the difficulty of getting goods brought into the district. As it is at present a steamer makes her ap pearance occasionally without being notified to make the trip, and the con sequence is that while there are tons of goods wanted on the river she comes without anything. There will not be nearly so much land under wheat cultivation on this river this season as usual owing to the fact that most of our landowners are confining their attention to the cultiva tion of maize and hops, crops which our alluvial flats are especially adapted for growing. Now that the snagging of the river is nearly completed as far as Mossiface is it not..tim, that some definite promise was obtained respecting that Ilortion from the...

SPORTING NOTES. Tile frequent visits of some of the owners of horses to the racecourse with their steeds, would indicate that in all probability there will be good fields this lay week on the occasion of the Winter Race M1feeting. The night of general entry is next Monday, when nominations will have to lie sent in for the Maiden Plate, and also nccep;ances for- the Hurdle Race and Midwimner Handicnp. The owners of brood mares must re member that the nomninations for the Omeo Mares' Produce Stakes are due next Tuesday, the Ist August. The Omco Racing Club are deserving o patronage for the spirited manner in which they are initiatiating these Produce Stakes, and it is to lie hoped that they will receive, the support of the Bairns dale studmasters. There ought to be a good list of enltries, more especially as only the first instalment of 10s of th,. sweep is demanmled with the nomination.

OUR OMEO PLAINS LETTER. Saturday, July 22. [Newspaper Article] — Bairnsdale Advertiser and Tambo and Omeo Chronicle — 27 July 1882

OUR O?IEO PLAINiS IlI1'ElI. (FROm Our OWN COnRnSPONDENT.) Saturday, July 22. Ploughing operations are now com pleted, thie area under cultivation being shout the same as last year. Since the establishment of the local mills flour has never been so high is at present (32s per bag) in fact, it is higher than in any other agricultural town in the colony. As the area under wheat last year was quite as large and the aggregate yield quite as great as in previous years, the question arises, why should consumers be compelled to pay £5 per ton more for flour than they had to pay last year. A very little wheat has been sent out of the district and there is no material in crease in the population. The only solu tion is that some persons have a large quantity of wheat stored up, which they are holding back with the view of en hancing prices. If. such is the case, theso individuals might very easily bite their fingers by holding too long, as fear of compelition with, the new: season's flour will...
