An Explanation. (To the Editor of the Portland Guardian.) [Newspaper Article] — Portland Guardian — 1 August 1876
An Explanation., &nbsp; (To the Editor of the Portland Guardian.) SIR,-Allow me through the medium of &nbsp; your column to contradict a statement made by your Adelaide correspondent re- specting the South-Eastern Ensign, to the fact that such journal has been amalga- mated with the Border Watch. As I &nbsp; understand the term, no "amalgamation" &nbsp; has taken place. True the plant, &c., of the Ensign was tendered for, and that from the proprietors of the Watch accepted at &nbsp; the sum of £110; but your correspondent must be aware that it requires something more than a mere possession to constitute an amalgamation. The tenor of your &nbsp; correspondent's remarks would lead the public to infer that an amicable arrange- ment had been made between the two journals, consequent upon the paucity of support accorded the opposition journal; such inferences are without any foundation. During its existence the Ensign received a fai...
PHILADELPHIA EXHIBITION. THE STORY OF THE SKERRYVORE. PHILADELPHIA, June 3. [Newspaper Article] — Portland Guardian — 4 August 1876
PHILADELPHIA ' EXHIBITION. THE STORY OF THE SKERRYVORE. (From the Argus special correspondent.) PHULADELPIAm, June 3. The fact that the disaster to the Skerry yore had been intentionally brought about was not publicly known at Philadelphia until the last mail left, and there was only time to send half a dozen sentences of a telegram to San Francisco. We only know up to May 14, that the exhibits from Victoria, South Australia, and Tasmania had been partly damaged, and supposed that the colonies had unluckily chosen an unseaworthy ship. Mr. Leslie Kendal Morrison, bookkeeper, who was in charge of the exhibits, as an officer of the Commissioners of Victoria, made a complaint as soon as he landed, but no publicity was allowed until the ship had been docked, and the survey showed that the suspicions he all along entertained were well grounded. Whether the commissioners had any right to keep the matter secret from the colonies, who, but for their reticence, would have been advised of the ...

ANNIVERSARY BSERVICES BAPTIST 0ON GOS. On Sunday the 16th inst, &he anniversary sermons were preached at the Baptist Churchl by the Rov. P. Bailhache,in the morning from the third and fourth verses of the eighth Psalm, and in the evenlug from thi 11th chapter of Ecclesiastes, let verse. The church was crowded on both occaions. On Monday a tea meeting was held at thie sameo place, the tea and accompaniments, provided by the ladies of the congregation, were largely patronised. The tables were decorated with a profusion of flowers which gave the room almost the appearance of a flower show, some bouquets being e, quieltely arranged; we have seen first priaes awarded for less artistlc results. After tea Mr. J. Itobb wr called on to occupy the chair. Mr. Robb in opening the meeting expressed the pleasuro he felt in presiding where the attendance was so good, and was glad to be able to welcome Mr. 'Trnter after his illness.

A SERMON BY FATHER POUT '':ON THE IRISH PEASANTRY, We belieove the following has never before been published: " He that giveth to the poor, lendeth to the Lord."

THE AMENDIED W ELECTORAL BILL. The Amended Electoral Bill now before Parliament, the second reading of which was fixed for yesterday efenidig, is, or ought to be by this time, in circulation. The delay has been caused, the 'Telegraph informs us, by the necessity of accurately defining the boundaries of the electorates, nil of which undergo to a greater or lesser extent some alteration, either by deprivation or extendcirn of territory, and the preparation of the mop which is to accompany the schedule of distribution of seats. This schedule will possess more local than general interest, and as the new electorates have already been de termloed upon, we purpose enumerating them, in order th.lt the public may at a glance understand the proposed altera tions and amendments in the present law : Presset Proposal Ditrtict. io. of No, o, tmeisematembes.

THto third session of the eighth Vic. torian Parliament opened on the 11th day of July. Sir George Bowen made the customary Ministerial speech with rather less promises in it than customary. The Governor intimated the introduction of an Amended Electoral Bill, and not before it was absolutely required. It is eighteen years since the existing act was framed, and with our shifting population great changes have taken place. When the Electoral At .was first made law, the population wa 'only 500,000; the present number is about 825,000. The changes in local distribution exhibit quite as much'change as in the popula.; tion. Large districts that eighteen years ago were only used for pastoral purposes, have now become centres of agricultural industry, and it Is almost certain, judging from present progress, tha...
