Potato Growing. (To the Editor of the Portland Guardian.) [Newspaper Article] — Portland Guardian — 25 July 1876

Potato Growing. (To the Editor of the Portland Guardian.) Srn.-With the neighbouring Ports of WVarr ,nualbool and Belfast on the one side, and fIort Macdonnell on the other, the two for mer expirting potatoes by the tens of thousanua of tons, the latter also this year Cexpo:ting many thousand tons, I cannot make out how or why Portland should not become a large potato.exporting port. It is no'" well ascertained that there are localities whero this valuable esculent will grow topor fection in the more immlediate amlnd inllandt districts; with a port superior to these, and markets within and without the colonies always available, it is certainly worthy of notice this importantt matter.

WooLr down 30 or 40 per cent, is an announcement that will cause une1asi ness in every corner of the Australian colonies, but to none of them will so wholesale a reduction in the value of one staple commodity prove as dis astrous as to Victoria. The gold mining and wool-growing industries, that for the last 12 years have been so carefully pampered and bolstered up have, by IL gradual decay of the one and a sudden declension of profits on the other, become the means of in volving the country in difficulties, all the more imminent from the ftct that we have rendered ourselves utterly powerless to mitigate the evil. III South Australia, and very possibly in Now South \Yales also, a sudden de preciation in the value of wool is at once met by an enormlous surpIlus in bread-stuffs, anrd the wealth that a colony thus stores up fo...

LOVE AND SUICIDE. [Newspaper Article] — Portland Guardian — 28 July 1876

LOVE AND SUICIDE. (From the Hay Standard.) The police report the death of a young woman named Grace Robinson, at Ivan hoe, under circumstances of the most painful nature, from the effect of a dose of strychnine, on the 3rd inst. Deceased had been engageo to be married to a man named Thomson, at Alossgiel, and all the usual preparations had been made in the way of obtaining wedding apparel from Hay, inviting friends, etc. The affair had been abruptly broken off in conuse quence of come alleged misconduct on the part of deceased. Thomson then went away, and deceased followed him to Ivanhoe, where he promised to marry her if she went up to Bourke, gave her a small sum of money, and again left her. She appears, however, to have arrived at the conclusion that she was deserted, and resolved to put an end to her life.

CUSTOMS RETURNS. [Newspaper Article] — Portland Guardian — 28 July 1876

CUSTOMS RETURNS. INDICATIONS of a country's progress and prosperity may be gathered from a variety of Eources, but from none more re liable than the customs returns. What applies to a nation applies to any part of it, and our readers will admit, after examination of the figures given below, that we have ample cause for self congratulation. Perhaps the best three months of the twelve that conld be selected on which to base a comparative estimate of our commercial position are April, May, and June ; and the returns kindly furnished by the Collector of Customs for the quarter just past will, when compared with those of the corres ponding quarter in 1875, take even our most sanguine readers by surprise. Considering the time of year, and the state of the roads within the shire, the increase in shipping business done during the past three months is more than satisfactory, and gives promise of a revival of that extensive export trade that at one time distinguished the Port of Portland.

vITr WINwmcI IS INCORPORATED TiH "t PORTLAND EXPRESS." To Protect our Rights - Not to Infringe upon those of Others. FRIDAY, JULY 2R. HAMILTON TO CASTERTON RAILWAY. TaE fIamilton Spectator of Satur day last has drawn us once more into the railway question, and we believe that in one important particular we shall join issue. Our contemporary, in alluding to its old advocacy of a line from Ararat to Hamilton, and thence to Casterton, for the quicker and more profitable transport of fat stock, takes exception to the continuation to Port land on the grounds that cattle will be liable to injury from detention, knock ing about, rough passages, &c. We were not aware that the advocates of a line to Portland over took fat stock much into consideration, the market in that commodity being deemed of secondary importance. But let that pass. What we are likely to agree upon is the necessity for the adoption of the shortest or most direct route for the transfer to the Melbourne and other l...
