LONDON WOOL REPORT.Â—FEBRUARY 24, 1866. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 21 April 1866
LONDON WOOL REPORT.—FEBRUARY 24, 1866. Since our last report there has been consider-&lt;*> able inquiries for all descriptions of wool, more particularly of a combing character, and so urgent has been the requirements of many of the manufacturers that all old stock was bought with eagerness at very full prices, and sereral large parcels of newly •arrived wools have been sold at extreme rates. The sales, which commence on the Ist of March, are expected to have a Terr large— perhaps the largest—attendance of buyers ever known. Old stocks are all used up, and the con sumption so far has exceeded the very large production of last year; exceptional circum stances, no doubt, hare led to this, but it augurs well for the coming clip.— Home Newt.

Commercial Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 21 April 1866
Commercial Intelligence. IPSWICH STOCK MARKET. —William Hendren reports as follows, viz.:—Much vitality has been manifested in the stock and station business during the past month, although transactions nave been much retarded by the continued dry weather, which has been experienced throughout the whole of the western and north-western dis tricts of Queensland for a lengthened period. Plenty of rain has fallen at Rockhampton and Sydney, as well as all along the sea coasts. The scarcity of feed, and in some places the want of water, so deters and disheartens purchasers of both stock and stations, that though the period of the year has now arrived for the greatest activity, very little desire to invest seems to pre vail, except for store and fat stock to travel; the majority of buyers, of whom many are from the South, preferring to " bide their time," and see the result of the drought. In station pro perties, no sales have been effected as yet in Queensland, though several excellent p...

Our Portfolio. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 21 April 1866
Our Portfolio. SPIRITS.—Keep up your spirits by good thoughts. THE sunshine of life is made up of very little beams, that are bright all the time. The wickedest liar is he who lies for an object; the greatest liar is he who lies without one. To some men it is indispensable to be worth money, for without it they would be worth no thing. Spy and Hakoman.—He who turns spy for pleasure would not stickle to be hangman for business. Enjoyment.—Enjoy the pleasant company of your best friends, but in all enjoyments be temperate. Advice is like snow, the softer it falls the longer it dwells upon, and the deeper it sinks into the mind. Love.—We paint love as a child; but he should sit a giant on the clouds, the great dis turbing spirit of the world. The hypocrite in religion kneels, like tUe first rank in a regiment, only tl.at he may take better aim at some one who stands opposed to him. Some men teach knowledge so awkwardly they make one believe it is a thing learnt with difficulty, and not...

Holloway a Ointment axd Pills.—Rheu* matic Pains.—Many thousands of martyrs from rheumatism hare found human life but one long disease, and after consulting all the most eminent medical men in vain, and trying all sorts of supposed remedies without relief, hare grown weary of existence, and have ceased to hope for comfort on thu side of the grave, until some lucky accident has called their atten tion to Holloway's Pilla and Ointment. These are genuine remedies indeed! Persons bed ridden for month* with rheumatic pains and swellings, after the Ointment has been well rubbed into the affected parts, and the blood purified by the course of these Pills, have found themselves restored in an incredibly short time to perfect health, and ease.—Advt.
IPSWICH. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 21 April 1866
IPSWICH. In the produce market very little business has been done; the demand in many instances being greater than the supply. On account of the drought the maize crop has been a complete failure in these parts, and the great scarcity of feed has caused an unusual demand for hay of all kinds both in town and on the railway line. I have no arrivals to report, although there is a steady demand at high prices. In flour and bran the market is Tery heavily stocked, and prices are not so firm. Potatoes have been too freely shipped to this quarter, and they have also receded in price. Current quotations for both stock and produce may be set down as follow, viz.:—Fat cattle, cows and bullocks, £3 10s to £4 10s ; fat wethers, from 8s 6d to 11s ; store cattle, mixed, from 6 months to 6 years, 27s 6d to 325; ditto ditto, from 2 years to 6 years, 32a to 45a ; ewes, maidens, 14s 6d to 16s 9d; ewes, 4 years, 12s 6d; ewes, aged, 8s 6d to 9s6d.
