WOOL. [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 9 October 1846

WOOL. THE recent advices from Kngland leave no doubt whatever that there is a great depieciation in the price of wool, but the accounts vary so much, that it is im- possible to arrive at the actual truth. We believe we are not far from the mark in stating that the actual fall is about three half-pence in the pound with a falling market. The settlement of the I corn question would, however, be cer I tain to produce a re-action.

Domestic Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 9 October 1846

Domestic Intelligence THE QUEEN'S THEATRE.-A paragraph appears in the Patriot, of yesterday, which being untrue from beginning to end, we feel it to be our duty to take notice. Without entering into details, it is sufficient to say that it is untrue that Mr. Smith either laid before the bench the " doings of one of the corps dramatique" or that he ever expressed himself us considering his com- pany bound to perform menial services. The truth is that the court' was not sitting when Mr. Smith was at the Police-office having an affidavit prepared for procuring' a search warrant, and in the course of conversation he complained that while lie was bound to pay his performers their weekly salaries', the Blasters and, Ser Act gave him no remedy in case of their disobedience or misconduct. The statement us to the fracas at the Theatre on Monday even- ing, wVich it aplicaos originated in the intoxica- tion of a jinny principally interested in the per- formances of the evening, and the bringin...

LATEST FROM SYDNEY. ^BY our last night's EXPRESS.] Sydney, Oct. 6, 1846. I have been informed on very good authority that a somewhat important innovation is likely to be introduced into the Presbyterian churches in Sydney. The Rev. Dr. Fullerton it is said is about to take the lead by causing an organ to bo erected in the Church over which he precides, situnte in or rather near Campbell-street, and it is moreover stated that the scruples of the Rev. Dr. M'Garvie, on the score of instrumental music in the Church, have been removed ; and that he will soon have an organ in St. Andrew's, " Any thing is better" (1 am told he should say) " than the discordant sounds which occasionally prevail." My informant further states that there is every probability at the forthcoming meeting of the Synod,- that the last named divine will be called to called to account, with reference to cer- tain sermons which he has caused to be printed, some of which nre considered by others of the ministry, to be ...
