THE PRICE OF WHEAT, ' The remarks we hn/ardcd on this iinpoi taut subject last week, have, we find, attracted im small share of public attention. Circumstances will compel nume- rous farmers, immediately after hat vest, to. hasten the thrashing of their corn, in order to biing it to market, and although (lie-liberal spirit,.and ¡mined benevolent \ patience of our merchants genera!I v, must be fully ac- knowledged, yet there'are those wdo will prr*s their claims «po» "the struggling settPor, that he'may the luoie speedily occasion a glut and a low prier ia the maiket,' in order to make large and caiy purchases.

PROPOSED BRIDGE. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Hobart Town Gazette — 23 December 1826
. PROPOSED BRIDGE. * . ' ' Td the Editor. Srn,-I beg leave to offer a few suggestions on the i erection of a bridge across the Derwent, for the purpose of coininiinicaliou with Hobart Town. .The breadth of the river at the point proposed&lt; at present-the great force of the cm rent in the winter-the difficulty of ob- taining workmen in this Colony, acquainted with the formation of such a structure, * and many other points unnecessary to detail, seem to lender a uioie simple plan desirable. I believe I shall be found correct in stating, that at a small distance to the northward of Mount Direction, on the eastern bank of the Derwent, a shoal of rocks projects into the river, over which the water rarely i isCs to the height of live feet, and that The . lemaiiiing bieadth of the stream (A dista nxe if not much more than -one hundred yard?) is from thirty-six to forty feet deep, the opposite bide being foimcd.b'y a steep and elevated bank. It would- seem tlieicfoie, that a suspe...

POLICE OFFICE, FRIDAY, DECEMBER 15, 1S26. Thomas McDermott, a constable at New Norfolk, was dismissed from his office, and fined 40s, for not delivering Christian Patterson into the Female Factory, agreeably to the instructions of the Magistrate. He &nbsp; had to conduct three female prisoners from New Nor- folk to Hobart Town; and, after delivering two into &nbsp; the custody of Mr. Drabble, he surreptitiously detained the third under very reprehensible circumstances.
