UN FAVOURABLE PROSPECTS OF THE WOOL TRADE BETWEEN AMERICA AND AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser — 21 August 1875

UNFAVOURABLE PROSPECTS OF THE WOOL TRADE BETWEEN AMERICA AND AUSTRALIA. The Pastoral Times lias been re quested by n correspondent to publish tho following extract from a letter fiom a gentleman in tho United Stales upon tho wool trade with Australia. Dear Sir,—I apprehend that nono of tho American wool importers will von. turo this year to Australia to cfFeet pur chasers in consequence of tho unsatis. factory results of their operations last season.

In tho event of Democratic rising into power on tho coming Prosidental election noxt year, a change of policy towards froo trado may bo expected, but this is not certain, although very likely to happen.

THE TRUE STOEY OF FISHER'S GHOST. Br Marcus Clarke. ( Amlralasian.) Thoso ladies, nnd gontlomon .who stimulated themselves by n belief in npparitions of tho spirits of docoased human boinga have several "well an-' thonticated " ghost stories, which they aro accustomed to cito as crushing' evi. donco against the incredulous. In tho last century tho narratives of tho "Ap. parition of Mrs. Veal, and tho Death of Lord Lyttloton,', were triumphantly brandished in tho faces of sceptics.
