MAURITIUS. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Times, Ipswich Herald & General Advertiser — 8 November 1861
MAURITIUS. By the Shah Jehan we have papers from Port Louis to the 6th ultimo. We quote from the Overland Commercial Gazette of that date as follows: From circumstances already explained, the crop is late this year. Some of those planters who com menced sugar making early were obliged to stop, as the canes did not yield as expected, and the weather at the early part of last month was not favourable. The sugar mills are now in full activity in every direction, but we hear complaints that lead us to fear that the erop will exceed by very little that of last season. Independent of the ravages of the borer, which are more extensive than last year, there has been disaplointment in the yield of fine plantations. With regard to prices, as far as we can judge at present, the late averages will be barely maintained. Yet with all these drawbacks the commercial position of the colony is sound; we have tided over the entre coupe without the slightest difficulty; labour is at a reasonable rate; ...

VICTORIA. THE PORT PHITILLTI' AGRICULTURAL EXHI BITIOY. (From tse .lfelbosne Arguo.) The great annual agriosltural meeting for 18IM is over, and there is much reason to be proud of the collection of stock and machinery exhibited on this occasion for the informationi and gratification of the general public, and, we trust, also of the farmers and etoekowners present. It is impossibkl for any one conversant with such anhnals and things, and depending upon them for occupation or amusement, to spend even an hour or two in yards so filled as were those of the Port Philip Farmers' Society yesterday, without having his ideas enlarged, and his mind somewhat troubled with that spirit of dissatisfaction which results in progress; by orcing men to wish for better things than they have, nmless they be of the most apathetic of temperaments. Each year the exhibition is an improvement on that of the preneding, but never before has the advance in the number, and mose decidedly still, perhaps, in the...
