Easiness Notices. I HAVE heard persona who ought to 1 know remark that “Rome was not built in a day,” nor, for that matter, was Ashburton, notwithstanding that the latter has been called a “jumped-up town.” I don’t believe the site of Ashburton will revert to a sheep-walk again quite so soon as some people imagine, and it’s being jumped upon in this way won’t hinder its advancement in the least. In proof that this is my way of thinking, I point to the business I am now engaged in building up, which, thanks to the public of Ashburton and surrounding districts, bids fair to be of a substantial character. A varied stock from the s choicest Fruits, down to humble/ Potatoes, with Italian goods, and almost every article in GROCERIES will be found in my new building, including ithe now celebrated Blended Teas of Nelson, Moate, <fc Co., in boxes and packets.
