UNITED STATES. [Newspaper Article] — Portland Guardian and Normanby General Advertiser — 5 November 1842

UNITED STATES. TaE New Tariff for the States now before Cogress, will, if it. pass, have a depressing influence on the Woollen Trade of Britain, and by consequence on the trade of the Australian Colonies. We give below a brief abstract -so far as the trade of these Colonies will be more or less affected, from the Port Phillip Patriot. This bill proposes to enact that on and after the 30th of June next, on all articles now chargab6 e with an ad r;alorcm duty of 20 per cent., a duty of 30 per. cent. shall be levied ad ralorem, except on articles otherwise provided aor, or excepted. On woillen yarns 4-centi. per pound, and 30 per cent. On ready-made clothing, of wlich wool shall be the only material, sub subject by any formce .actto.. a, duty of 50 per cent.

THE ROADS. [Newspaper Article] — Portland Guardian and Normanby General Advertiser — 5 November 1842

THE ROADS. IT was. intimated to us the other day thst the settlers beyond' the Wannon, and about the Grampians, had in contemplation the formation of a road from that part of the district in which they depasture their flocks, to Port Fairy, and to ship their wool from that opn and unprotected roadstead in pro fereice to' Portland. We have heard no other reason assigned for this movement than the awful ,condition of the roads, and the utter impossibility there is of bringing their produce to Portland for shipment while the roads continue in their present deplor able state. We are by no means inclined to slight this intimation, or to think it is a point deserving of only ordinary consideration ; the mooting of such a questionable' probable as the executio?of pli accordance therewith may appeaa and unlikely as its occurrence says , account of the difficulties that Would it, the subject is deserving ofth consideration. It is nmaximical with us that thbs being the very first in the class...

To the Editor of the Portland Guardian. [Newspaper Article] — Portland Guardian and Normanby General Advertiser — 5 November 1842

To the Editor of thie Portland Guardian. Sn--It is generally reported, but with what degree of truth I know not, that many, of the settlers, terrified at the state of the roads lead ing to Portland, haveit-in contemplation tosend this season's wool for shipment to Port Fairy , and, of course, either to purchase or import their supplies for the ensuing year at that place. Should there be any foundation for this rumour, there will 'certainly be a very serious injury inflicted on the trade of Portland, and one that, just at this moment, it is ill able to support; for, as things are at present, this town swould find it very difficult to exist, much less to thrive, if deprived'of any very large proportion of its commerce-and that it most assuredly will, if suffered to remain niuch longer severed from the interior,as it now is, by the impassable con dition of the roads. The evil is now at its height, and requires immediate and strenuous -exertions topreventits seriously cramping, if not s...

FOREIGN INTELLIGENCE. CHINA. [Newspaper Article] — Portland Guardian and Normanby General Advertiser — 5 November 1842

TOR HIGN INTELLIGENCE. -C HIN A. Late news have been received at Sydney from China. His celestial majesty had fled frsm Pekin to Tartary, in anticipation of the advance of the British. Before his de parture he issued proclamations, enjoining the people to defend themselves. It is said they evince dissatisfaction towards the" reigning dynasty. This is the anniversary of the treacherous attack of the Chinese last year, upon.ihe small force then in sight near Canton, and the factoi-ies and foreign merchants there, which led to 'the miorable occupation of the heights neair that city, and the ransomn of it for six millions of dollars. Up to this time, this has been the most signal and certainly most successful achievement of the war with China, and however short of the the expectaions entertained by private indi viduals the result of that. memorable mili tary movement have bean, it must be con fessed, that in the' twelve- months following, although the troops have been successful in many...

To the Editor of the Portland Guardian. [Newspaper Article] — Portland Guardian and Normanby General Advertiser — 5 November 1842

To the -Editor of the Portland Guardian. Sin-The Mlercasew has atlast, ifwemav judge by Wednesday's publcation, commenced to oc cupy itself principally with the aflairs of Port land, but then I fear it is only for a short time, and that in the absence of Melbourne matter. Be that as it may, I cannot refrainfromthinking that its exuberant fancy, shining talents, and otately periods, might have been much better employed than in endeavoring to overturn'posi tive truth, and thereby lure unfortunate trades people into creel distress, if not positive want. The strictures it has given forth on the letter in the Cornwall Chronicle from " An Inhabitant of. Portland," are an entire tissue of nonsense from beginning to end, and would be beneath notice but for the injury they are caleiulated to inflict on the town, by attempting to help out the-ill-judged hollow puff ofaneedy adventurer. Let any man of common sense read the letter in question, and the remarks upon it in the Mer cury,' and be co...

COLONIAL AGRICULTURE [Newspaper Article] — Portland Guardian and Normanby General Advertiser — 12 November 1842

COLONIAL A'SEICULTURB Ttzs repeated complaints we hear of the non-productiveness of the col of New South Wales, owing to the periodical dryness of the atmosphere, induces us to of er a few gen er:.l remar'ss on the subject. It is well ascertained fact, that the mois ture required to the fertility of a virgin soil is just three times more than the humidity required to fertilize artificial earths. This is attributable to distinct causes. Artificial soils are so composed as to be sufficiently ret n tive of moisture, or loose a friable, to admit the exhaltation of the sub-soil to support I through the summer months the vege:ation on the surface, while special care is taken to select the herbage best suited to their crm position. If the farmer finds that he has a superabundance of moisture, he drains his land; but if this lanrd be much exposed to the sun, and is naturally of a dry and untriable disposition, he selects those herba that dra= least moisture from the soil, wh-il, they yiel" ...
