THE MEAT EXPORT TRADE. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 25 January 1894
?'.. -THE MEAT EXPOBT TEADE. Mb. MoIntihe, the Victorian Minister of Ii&nds, improved hia holiday visit to 'New Zealand by examining the condition and development in that province of the meat ?export trade. And he has embodied the result of his observations in a report to his col leagues. The story told is not a new etory. But the important circumstance cannot be too otten dwelt upon that to the development of this trade New Zealand mainly owes her present enviable position. Therefore a few of the figures and facts given by Mr. Molntyra may with profit be abstracted from this valuable report. The rise of the New -Zealand meat export trade is indeed one of the most important commercial incidents of the later years of AuBtralaaian history. In ten years the value o£ meat sent in a frozen state from New Zealand rose from £19,339 to £1,194,724 A trial shipment of .4311 carcases of sheep and 398 lambs was mode in February,: 1882, and the mutton realised 63d per lb.

Three Days with Tyson. rCONCLTJDED.l 'I remained at this work for about twelve months, when the run was bought, and the owners brought down some breeding cattle and let them »o with the bullocks that gave me such a lot of trouble, and to my surprise, a slow, lazy old man was sent to take ray piace. I told the boss that the old fellow could never manage to hold the cattle on une run, as it naa rauen me an my time, nignt and day, to prevent the bullocks from getting away ; and now that there were a lot more it would re quire two smart, painstaking men to look after them properly. I thought they would soon find they could not do without me, because not only had I done the work of two men but I knew the country throughly ; and not one of them did, least of all the lazy old man.

The Bishop of Newcastle in Hobart. On Sunday last, the Holy Trinity Church, Ho b*rfc, Tasmania, the Bishop oi Newcastle was the preacher at morning service. We take the Hobarfc Mercury's report of the sermon : The Bishop of Newcastle preached from Romans viii., 21, ' Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the elorious liberty of the children of God.' In his history of the Jewish people the late Dean Stanley remarked how the teachers of the Hebrew race taught and the people believed that their golden age was yet to come, while contemporary peoples held exactly opposite views. The latter believed that there had been in the dim and shadowy past, far back in the records of the world's history, the golden age, when all were happy, when sorrow was unknown, and when the goodness of man and the purity of life made the earth a paradise. Then, they taught, there came, the silver age, when the happiness and rosy hue of life began to grow less un...
