IVJHW ZEALAND HEMP » [per press associatioh.] i Wellington, May 20. In a despatch dated April 3rd the j Agent-General writes, " Complaints are always rife as to the condition in which New Zealand hemp is sent away, and it seems in vain that merchants and brokers here have repeated the warning so constantly given to their correspondents in the Colony, that their market will be destroyed if the hemp is not better dreesed and packed and, for my own part, I should go on saying something, but the fluctuations of the whole hemp market since New Year have been so strange and have so completely baffled the most skilful experts that it is quite natural for growers to be disheartened. lam endeavoring to bring together some facts which may account in some way for these violent fluctuations, but I cannot say that there is any prospect as yet of steadier prices."
