The Portland Shire Loan. (To the Editor of the Portland Guardian.) [Newspaper Article] — Portland Guardian — 4 August 1876

The Portland Shire Ltan. (To de Editor of te Portland Guardian.) S'n,-I have at varlos times read letters and comments by your own eor respondents, in different parts of the shire, on the above subject in your columns, in which the matter was discussed in a very fair spirit, if from different stand points. Not so, however, your cortes. pondent "T," whose communicatlon in our issue of the 28th inast. I cannot allow to paw unchallenged. I do not considor it necessary to take any notice of the reeklass manner in which he imparts motives to all who hold views antagonistio to his own. The power of such insionu. ations to hurt depends "liko more material thfngs, upon the bright from whence they fall;" and as your correspondent chooses to write anonymously, his claim to "sit in judgment" ceaniot be safely estimated without further information as to lis identity. The only portion of lils latter which I propose to take any notice of is that in whiclh he ro-asserts that the scheme for the liq...

Portland Shire. (To the Editor of the Portland Guardian.) [Newspaper Article] — Portland Guardian — 4 August 1876

Portland Shire. (To the Editor of the Portland Guardian.) Stn,-I think the letter of Mr. Kellor, published in your issue yesterday, will be satisfactory to the whole shire, as it ends the correspondence upon shire affairs which has lately in your columns and those of the Hamilton Spectator occupied so large a space. The letter of Mlr. Keiller is simply explanatory, and this latter is explanatory too. He objects to the word 'tLdefection" in my last letter. I cannot recall the word, because it is the gist of my letter. I blamed him for sanctionlng Air. keno's plan against tie convictions, mud that having the casting vote, ie gave it in favour thereof-that had lie voted according to his convictions a dead.lock would have ensued. He states that two councillors were in a minority with himself, whereas Crs. M. Cameron, Learmontb, and McDonald eatertained the same views that Mr. Keiller had at the previous meeting professed. Those three councillors and his casting vote would have, s'I said...

BENEVOLENT ASYLUM AND HO PITAL. Tum Portland Benevolent Asylum and Hospital is now inconveniently crowded; all the beds are full, and from the number of accidents happening in connection with the railway works1 and the itcreased patients requiring admission, some steps should be at once taken to provide more room. At the committee meeting to be held this day, some steps, we learn, will be taken to provide a new ward, surgical instruments, and generally increase the acommodalion. LTh.e Secretary has been directed to apply tb the Government for a grant of £300 to assist the committee in the building, and it. ia almost certain when the clroomotances of the case are considered and the increased claims on the institute felt, that the sum named will be included in the supplementary esti mates.

THE MINNA BELL. [Newspaper Article] — Portland Guardian — 4 August 1876

TueH MhINNA BELL.-Betwee8 thie mor. ing of Thursday and the evening of Sunday last various efforts, some partially successful and others entirely fruitless, were made to remove this unfortunate schooner. from her comfortable berth. Luckily the weather, from the time sile went aground, grew gradually finer, and the sea calmer, aad it seemed that nothing was wanting save tackling strong enough to bear the strain required to start her. On Thursday atine was made fast to the Julia Percy, but this snapped at, once, and the attempt was' abandoned in the afternoon. Subsequently. the lightermen took the matter in hand, and succeeded in moving her into a more favourable position, though not in floating tier, and so she remained until Sunday morning.' The steamer Rob Roy now took the matter in hand, reasoning, no doubt, that if there was authority for extricating an ass from a pit on the Sabbath day, lie might surely get the Minna Bell out of a hole without exceeding the license. So lines wer...

THE CONDAH PLOUGHING MATCH. 12TH JULY, 1876. [Newspaper Article] — Portland Guardian — 4 August 1876

THEI CONDAH .PLOUGHING MATCH, 12Th JULY, 1876. Only those conversant with the working of agricultural socletics in ihe llouc 'country canl properly estimate the vast practical Impontauce of the first ploughing match held at Conflauh pt 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 Imuch of the prosperity of the conltry depends in the future. The ground relected was a fallow paddock on the farm of Mlr.Jamcs Dunnu, situated on the Breakaway Creek. The field is on a rising ground wnjacent to the Coudah Swamp, but as the ploughmen could not see from the bottom to tihe top of the field the disadvantages were apparent,' and another year a more suitable site for a match should certainly be chosen.

THE NOVELIST. LA BELLA SORRENTINA. CHAPTER L The district that forms the southern horn of the Bay of Naples, with its orange-groves and vineyards, its aloes, olives and palms, its rocky hills; its white, glittering towns, its- deep blue sonea, its bare-legged fishermen and graceful, dark-eyed girls, has always been the rery Paradise of tourists. The faint, heavy scent of the orange blossoms is wafted to you, as you sit in your balcony above the sea, on warm, moonlight nights; the tinkling ofa guitar is heard from the distunce, where somebody is singing "Santa Lucia" or " La Bella Sorrentina" before the door of one of the hotels; a long line of smoke is blown firom Vesuvius towards the horizon; the lights of Naples wink and glitter on the other side of the bay; and presently (if you are inclined to pay for it) a little company of young men and maidens will come and dance the Tarantella for you, till you are weary of watching so much activity in such a slumberous atmosphere. There is ...
