NeW Zealand Butter.

The Melbourne correspondent Tof the " Otago Daily Times " writes : —Damaging reports are not infrequently published here concerning the quality of the butter sent from New Zealand to the London market. The secretary of our department of agriculture has just received a letter from the agents in London who had the sale of the butter sent by the Victoria on January 10, in which they say that in view of the experience gained from the recent; shipments, the success of the Victorian butter in the London market is assured, and add that the butter exported from this colony was superior to that sent from New Zealand. In the agricultural article of the "London Standard" received by yesterday's mail, there also appears the following paragraph, which is republished here:—" New Zealand dairy farmers and shippers of butter should be put on their mettle by the great success which has attended the first attempt of Victoria to ship butter extensively to this country. From a circular of Messrs Henry Page and Son, of Water-lane, we see that while Australian butter is selling at 96s to 106s per hundredweight, New Zealand butter is worth only 30s to 102s, very little of it being sold at the top price. It is strange that the New Zealand exporters, after some years of experience, should continue to supply us with butter either so badly made or so carelessly packed that a great deal of it has to be fold as grease."
