MELBOURNE FLOUR AND GRAIN MARKET. [THE WEEK'S TRANSACTIONS.] [Newspaper Article] — The Horsham Times — 25 April 1882
MELBOURNE FLOUR AND GRAIN S MARKET. [T. E WcEc'S TiAeaecTuONS.j Notwithstanding the intervention of the Easter holidays, which occurred as the mail was leaving, the excitement then reported in breadstffs was not much affected, as on the resumption of business on Wednesday, (the mail week), the closing rates of the -previous-T-hursday;t?he 6th-Gs'6d'htFDinly came into force, but values were driven up still further until 6s 8}d was obtained, 6s 9. being asked, with a very brisk inquiry experienced, ind a large business. ?JThis week, however, the market has been much ,quieter again, values receding to 6s 7d. .Country supplies, owing to the holidays and the fact that farmers are busy with field operations, show a great falling off. That, however, is not more than was to be expected, but,. of- course, the circumstance greatly facilitates the action of speculators in forcing sup prices. On the other hand, again, vAlues having gone to figures which must deprire us of our export trade t, th...
CANNUM. April 18. [Newspaper Article] — The Horsham Times — 25 April 1882
(From our own Correspondent.) , .,: :-. .April 18. The ater famine astil coniinues in onr diistrict and b one bears'his lot with the courage of a lion; there is no grumbling, although some have to go day and night to keep all things-slive. Day after day brings threatenings of rain, but blank disappointment is our lot.>- Howelong this. is, to continile I know not. It is a great blessing that water can be got on the east side of the Yarriambiac by ishallow sinking., I have nof heard of water being got on the west side, although M'Donald Bros., of Re I Bank, are sinking a well and are down 70 feet without the sign of water as yet.. This dry season must undoubtedly tena to the better provis ion of water storage if we -are - to re main in the district. I maintain that "the majority of farmers could store sufficient water in tanks to put them over a season like this, but unfortun ately there is too much dependence on the shire council. Mr. H. Allan, of Willenabrina, who lives north of ...
Germany and the Pope. [DAILY CHRONICLE, 3RD MARCH.] [Newspaper Article] — The Horsham Times — 25 April 1882
Germany and the Pope. * 0 ,[DAILY CHRONICLE, 3RD MARCH.] The special German embassy that arrived at Constantinople a few weeks ago has satisfactorily accomplished its avowed work of investing the Sultan with the Order of the Black Eagle, and of appearing at an extended series of diplomatic and social entertainments in Pera and its neighbourhood. More in, terest will be felt, however, in the'ques tion as to whether the more real and important object' of the Extraordinary Embassy, namely, the gaining of the Sultan to the Austro-German alliance has also been attained. There can be little doubt that both Slavs' and Ger mans are at present exerting themselves to the utmost to gain friends and allies in view of a race struggle which is be lieved to be inevitable at ne very dis tant date. General Skobeloff, as we all know, has been in Paris, and has ostentatiously proclaimed 'his desire of stirring.up the old hatred between France-and the German Empire, and thus tightening the bond of frie...

-The- Insurauce Frauds. -o. EX rRAORDITARY EVIDENCE OF THE INFORMER HICKS. [FROM THE ARGUS.S Adelaide, Thursday. The trial of James Barker and Dr. T. B.

William Hicks, chemist, the -de fendant:who had been acquitted on the ground that] he had been accepted as Queen's evidence, said,--I remember Barker having a tent at the Adelaide Exlibi:ion in connexion with the Mutual Provident Society. I had transactions with him on insurance matters. I knew Weatherhead, and had a conversation with Barker about him in the tent. Barker brought a proposal to insure Weatherhead's life in the Australian Mutual Provident So. ciety. He said he was a man suitable for our own purpos...
A French General on the Channel Tunnel Scheme. Paris, March 8. [Newspaper Article] — The Horsham Times — 25 April 1882
A French General on :the Channel Tunnel Scheme, (FROM THE PiaIS CORRESPONDE.T OF THE SrANDARD. . Pa!is, March 8. One of the most distinguished generals in the French servica has written me a letter on the subject of the Channel Tunnel scheme, the substance of which appears to me likely to interest English readers. For obvious reasons the writer's name is withheld at hio own request, but it is a name that would carry weight. Here is what he, says, puo into a condensed shape: " What the advocates and opponeits of the tunnel say is very suggestive, but' it' appears to meto go beyond o .to fall short of the mark. Those who say that the existence of a submarine bridge between England and the Continent:would be perfectly. useless for,the purposes of .invasion go a great: 'cal!too 'far, and those who imagine that the tinn(el alone would very materially increase the liability of England to invas.on seem to me to have little practi?al kibowledge of modern warfare, and to attach to the, tunne...

Explosion of "Infernal Machines" in Edinburgh. [Newspaper Article] — The Horsham Times — 25 April 1882
Explosion of" Infernal Mi chines" in Edinburgh, (FROM THE SCOTt3N, FEnUAURT 18.) An outrage, almost without precedent in the history of crime in the city, though of a nature not, utfortunately,.unheard of re cently in other parts of the country, occurred in Edinburgh, whereby eight persons be longing to two families were more or less injured, and the house in which they resided partially wrecked. The mischief was done by what have come tobe known as "inferial machines"-that is to say, boxes charged with an explosive material, and constructed in such a way that upon their being opened a violent explosion occurred, which placed the members of the households who had re ceived them in the greatestjeopardy. In the one case a box was sent to Mir. A. M'Donald, No, 6 Bill-place, and in the other to Miss 11. Baron, 19 St. James' street; and it ap. peared at once, on inquiry, that the circums stanees connected with both occurrences clearly pointed to a common sender ; and later in the evening...
