COMMERCIAL INTELLIGENCE. ' YESTERDArS MARKElTS.. Business bas b'eii very dull through- out the dav. Wheat is «lill quote I at 7a Cd to 7s 9d, hut it is very difficult to obtain t he latter figure. Colonial oat s arc enquired for, and realize from 6* Gd to 7s per bushel. 1'oreign oats are in no demand at 5s to 5s 6d. Barley moves off readily as it comes ¡uro the market, bat supplies come in very slowly ; Cape fetches Gd Cd to 7s 3d, and English 7s 6d to 8s Cd, according to sample. Hay is plentiful, and prices continue firm; loose and countrv pressed hay ranging from £6 10s to £7 103, accord- ing to quality, and hydraulic pressed £S to £9. Potatoes are still w11 ¡ni; at £10 to £12 per ton, with very little doing. Onions arc not much in demand, and are quoted at £15 to £17 per ton. The flour market is especially dull. Flour from the best colonial wheat was quoted to day at £17 to £18 per ton. Bran is in fair demand, and very scarce, .but remains at 2s 3d to 2s Gd per bushel. Slurps con...
THE CLARENCE ELECTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 17 March 1858
THE CLARENCE ELECTION. Mu. EDWAUD AjinoTT has written a scurrilous letter to one of the news- papers in consequence of a very tempe- rate article which appeared in this journal relative to himself in his cha- racter as a Candidate for the Renreseii 'tition of the District of Clarence. Hie remarks made by us were made in sorrow not in anger. Viewing Mu. AmiOTf as a monomauiao, which he certainly is on one subject, we refrained from availing ourselves of the liberty accorded fc> the Press of commenting on the public acts of publie men. The lone pervading the article, which has brought forth tins silly and childish retort, is certainly uot. calculated to awiken wrath aud dis- temper in minds not already distempered. Had the balance ot Mr. ABBOTTS volition been undisturbed either by con lideratlons of Launceston Swamp or by political discomfiture, hp would have re- ceived our observations in the same tranquil spirit in which they »ero con- ceived and expressed.

NAPLES. THE EARTH QUAKE. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 17 March 1858

This month, while unable to tell of their release, I have for heavier tidings to bear to your cars.

LATEST FKOM INDIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 17 March 1858
LATEST FKOM INDIA. The Indian nowa by this]mail is'more satisfactory than what we have lately received. The British forces were | gradually inclosing the rebels, and en- vironing the kingdom of Oude. Luck-1 now had not been molested since the departure of Sir Colin Campbell, but remained entirely iu the hands of the insurgents, who were said to be in force there to tbe extent of 50,000 men. Sir Janies Outran), whom at last advices we left in occupation of an entrenched I position at the Alumbagh, had been attacked on four different occasions by, ! the rebels. He, however, repulsed them with great loss, the British casu- alties beipg very trifling indeed. Sir Colin Campbell had taken Furruckubad, and defeated the enemy in several en- gagements. Jung Bahadoor, the Ne paulóse Maharajah, after taking Gor ruckpore, had advanced towards Oude. The trial of the King of Delhi was I about to take place ; it was, however, [ certain that his life had been guaranteed to him, on the authority of ...
