English News. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 5 May 1849

ENGLISH NEWS To the 3rd of January has arrived at Sydney by the Velocity, via Adelaide and Launceston. The follow ing is a summary : — Parliament was prorogued to the 4th of February, when it was expected the legislature would meet for the despatch of business. The Times of the 1st of January says :. — Consols have closed to-day within a fraction of four per cent. above their price on the 1st of January last, when, with the exception of Italy, Europe sits in a state of profound repose, and the worst casualty anticipated by the speculators was the possible death of Louis Phillipe ! The bullion in the bank is £2,800,000 in excess of that period, and within about a million of its highest point preceding the madness of 1816, while the banking reserve has increased £3,400,000, and is nearly half a million higher than at any period since the passing of the Bank Charter Act. On the 3rd of January consols at 891/8, ¼, declined to 89, and 88 7/7, and are now 89 to 89 1/8. The wheat average f...

THE BATHURST ADVOCATE. SATURDAY, MAY 5, 1849. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 5 May 1849

_ THE, BATHURST -ADVOCATE. SATURDAY, MAY 5, 1849. Tun present condition of the money market in Eng land is a source of .extreme satisfaction. At no period, sinco tho passing of the Bank Charter Act, was tho banking reserve so high as it is at the present moment. Consols are nearly 4 per cent, higher than they were at tho commencement of hist year, and tho bullion in the National Bank is increased'by 2,600,000. All this augurs well for the prospects of commerce. Tho easiness of the money market, the facility with which merchants can get their bills discounted, and the increase of coniidonco among dealers and merchants, will naturally promote a spirit of enterprise, and tho beneficial effects of this will be felt by all classes. Em ployment is already plentiful in some parts of England, and will probably be still moro plentiful and remuner ative, and the prosperity of tho industrial classes are consequently beginning to brighten. The beneficial effects of this prosperity will not be c...

Advances on Wool and Live Stock. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 5 May 1849

Advances on Wool and Live Stock. The registered liens on Wool and "Live" Stock, for   the District of Port Phillip, during the first quarter of the present year, are not far short of one-half the entire number registered during the whole of the   previous year, 1848. This is easily explained by the ruinous prices of tbe Wool Market, where rated so much below what the most desponding anticipated. The growth of Wool, last year, was 10,102,500 lbs. The average annual increase may be reasonably rated at twenty pee cent. (Westgarth's Statistical Tables give it at twenty-five per cent.) and the wool exported this year will be something over 12,000,000 lbs. The advances for the current year may be safely estimated at £80,000, or more (han one-fifth of the entire clip at nine pence per pound ; and as the advances become more general, during the third quarter of the year, it may be considered that quite one-half of the clip on the sheep's back will be .advanced upon...
