PHILADELPHIA EXHIBITION. THE STORY OF THE SKERRYVORE. PHILADELPHIA, June 3. [Newspaper Article] — Portland Guardian — 4 August 1876

PHILADELPHIA EIkIRITION.1 THE STORY OF THE SKERRYVORE. (From the Argur special correpodooent.) PIILADELPrHIcA, June 3. The fact that the disaster to the Skersy 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 Anatralia, and Tasmania had been partly damaged, and supposed that the colonies had unluckily chosen an unseaworthy ship. Mr. Leslie Kondal 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 antil the ship had been dlocked, and the survey showed that the suspicions he all along entertained were well I grounded. Whether the commissioners had I any right to keep the matter secret from the I colonies, who, but for their reticence, would I have been advis...

THE NOVELIST. LA BELLA SORRENTINA. CHAPTER I. [Newspaper Article] — Portland Guardian — 4 August 1876

THE NOVELIST., LA2BELLA 8ORRENTINA. CHAPTER I. 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'y ills; its white, glittering towns, its deep blue sea,' its bare-legged fislhermdn' and graceful, dark-eyed girls, has always been the very Paradise of tourists. The faint, heavy scent of the orange blossoms is wafted to you, as you sit in your balcony above the ses, on warm, moonlight nights; the tinkling ofa guitar is heard from the distance, where somebody .s singing "Santa Lucia" or " La Bella Sorroetina" before the door of one of the hotels; a long line of smoke is blown from Vesuvius towards the horizon; the lights of Naples wink and glitter on the other sido'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. ,The...

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

STRANDING OFP THE MINNA BELL'. - 6ilp'owners, after a long interval, have at how the reputation'of the port was estroyed long years ago. The present experience, as far as Portland is concerned, Is by no means a new one, but the odds are that the investi gation' of the stranding of the Minuna Boll will, insteild of injuring the reputation of the port, confirm its now established reputation of never having been as "black as it was painted." , Early on Wednesday, 12th, the lMinnaBoll left the jetty, at' which she had been unload ing, and put'to aon,-a south wrind blowing tie while. ' She sailed in the direction of theo Narrawoug coast, and to everyone'sastonish meet bore up again in the direction of Port land, making direct for the ,'Julia ' Percy saf?mer, which'was at anchor on the usual holding ground. Here, as far -as we can, learn, the schooner "missed stays"-not once but' twice-but contrived at last to run fool of the steamer, carrying away some of her davits. 'After 'this she dro...

ACCIDENT. [Newspaper Article] — Portland Guardian — 4 August 1876

ACCIDENT.- On Tuesday, 10th inst, a serious accident occurred on the railway works to a young man named Robert Malseed, who was employed as a carter. It appears that through some inadvertance     the cart wheel slipped into a deep rut, and caused a plunge on the part of the horse that knocked the driver down. The wheel wen. over the unfortunate young fellow, who escaped, however, with some severe bruises and a severe crush to some of his fingers. Mr. Wrixon AT Belfast.- Mr Wrixon held a very successful meeting at the Oddfellows Hall, Belfast, on Saturday evening, 9th. At the close of a lengthy address, in answer to certain questions, he is thus reported by the Argus :-" Mr. Wrixon explained that he was prepared to support an income-tax if introduced, having the minimum at £250, or even £200. But from professional men and others not having fixed incomes he would deduct siuch sum from taxation as would pay life assurance. He said he had that, day been over th...

BRAN X HOL ME. (jr. Oc ocR OWN CORRlaEPONDENT). Aungust 2nd,:18706 We have had remarkably fine weather here lately for the time of year, and farmers have taken advantage of it, so far as plonlhing and sowing are concerned. Some of them have gone into the business pretty extensively this year. There is more ground under cultivation this season than has been the case for years past. So far the season has been favour able, and the crops are looking well. Another effort has been made. to get up a ploughing match here. A meeting wee held st the llranxholme Hotel last Saturday week, which was well attended coneidering the short notice given. It was resolved that a ploughing match be held early in September ; other prelimi nary bRiness was gione throuch, and before the mceing broke up, the sub. scription list had assumed a very en. couraging appearance-about £10 being subscrited is the room.
