Anrval uf the English Mail at Auckland, AUCKLAND, January 14. THE Pacific Steam Navigation Company's R. M. S. Ctty of New York arrived at Auck land on Friday forenoon. The City of New York encountered heavy gales, lasting five days, during the continu ance of which Arthur Simpson and David Silva were swept overboard by the seas, and drowned. With respect to the anarchy prevailing in Ireland, it is reported that the Queen, acting under the influence of Lord Beaconsfield, is urging Mr. Gladstone to employ force to crush the disorder. Lord Rossmore and some other landlords have adopted a platform favoring fair rentals, fixity of tenure, and free sale. An olganisation is in course of formation throughout England for an agitation favoring lower rents, and right of purchase after occu pancy for a certain period. An Antarctic expeditiou is projected; under the leadership of Dr. Allen Young. The Anti.Jewish movement in Germany is taking hold of the popular sentiment. A bill has been introdu...

COMMERCIAL INTELLIGENCE. TUESDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Goulburn Evening Penny Post — 18 January 1881

CO?MERCIAL INTELLIGENCE. - TUESDAY. DURING the past week trade of all kinds has been slack, and very few transactions of any I moment have taken place; whether it is on account of the country people being engaged with their crops or the scarcity of the "need ful" we cannot say; but there is much room for improvement. We had hoped to have been able to report that things were more brisk than they are, and regret that we cannot do so; but when harvesting is over, there should be a change for the better. We see from our exchanges thatthere is a general dulness of trade just now in most parts. Wool.-Few indeed have the transactions in this line been during the week, although we notice that a few loads have been sent by rail to the metropolis. In Sydney the prices for this staple appear to be unchanged. Hides.-The demaud for these is about the same as last week, and if in any fair con' dition can find buyers at late rates, viz., 6s to IOS.
