BREAD. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 29 July 1846

BREAD, Evssr one has .heard of the Irish member of parliament, who .in the Irish House of Commons m6ved a resolution to the effect that a quart bottle should hold , quart; in like manner we intend in this article to call upon the Corporatiou of Sydney, to frame a regulation by which a 41bs. loaf ishall weigh 41bs. Perhaps there is no other article of daily consumption in which both rich and poor, but the poor especially, are plundered so: much as in the article of IREAD. It is notorious, and, we believe, admits of no dispute, that by far the greater quantity of bread- sold -.by. the bakers of .Sydney is "light weight." We have been told of. cases having occurred wherein loaves which were purchased for four pound loaves, weighed no more than three pounds and a half. A robbery (for it is nothing else but robbery) of this kind is of the most serious consequence to the ppor man, who has a large family to provide for. Where, as is the case, in some families, three or four loaves per day ...

THE ISLAND OF BORNEO. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 29 July 1846

THE ISLAND OF BORNEO. (From the Singapore Free Press, Feb. 26.) We can understand the reason why the Dutch feel so very strongly at the prospect of English 'settlements being formed on Borneo. They are various, and each sufficient to produce the feelings of vexation and alarm which have been lately i?anifested. ' The Dutch are peculiarily unfortunate in tlheir attempts at colonization in being ifable to win the attachment and regard. of the natives of the places in which they settle. This arises no doubt in great nieasnire from the haish restrictions they generally. think it necessary to impose, and which are so revolting to the native mind. The establish ment of settlements by another European power, in the viclinty, exhibiting an entire freedom from all such restrictions has the effect of still more disgust. Lng the natives with the state of things under Dutch rqle, and hence such establishments cannot but be very prejudicial to Dutch interests. It is in the effects upon their: tr...

Mattland. COMMERCIAL AND MARKETS. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 29 July 1846

3ýlattlanb, -0 (From the Mai land Mercury.) COMMERCIAL AND MARKETS. Business generally has ruled rather dull during the week. There does not appear to be much wheat in the hands of the growers. Very little has been offered during the week,.and the few sales that have taken place have been at rather lower rates, ranging from 5s. to`'s. per bushel. The farmers are still holding on to their maize, and asking 4s per bushel; but purchasers for the Sydney market are only willing to give 3s Od, and those for immediate use from 3s 9d to 4s. There is no barley in the market, not even for seed. There is no alteration to notice in regard to hay and straw; the former may be quoted at from 8l. to 91. ~er ton,:and the latter at from 10s to II. per load. The butchers are not so anxious to buy fat cattle as they were last week, the few lots that have come into towri haying supplied their immediate wants. Still, cattle in good condition will fetch from 31. 10s. to 41. 5s. per head. Sheep are very sc...

STATE OF IRELAND. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 29 July 1846

STATE OF IRELAND.: (From the Morning Chronicle, March 25.) There was distributed on Saturday a paper, from which we make a few extracts: it is entitled " Ab stracts of the most serious representations uiiadeby the several Medical Superintendents of Medical Ins stitutions (fever hospitals, infirmaries, dispensaries, &c.), in the provinces of Ulster, Munster, Lejnater, and Connaught." It presents a painful picture of the present-an appalling prospect of the future; and we can do nothing better tlhan quote from the paper the passages most calculated 'to artest at tention. Ulster is of course the least suffering district. But even here the evil and peril extend over four counties. In Antrim and Armagh, "jaundice and diarrhoea exist from unsoundness and insufficiency of food ;" "fever, diarrlhea, and dyspepsia, have increased considerably, and are, in many cars, traceable to the use of unsound 'potatoes.' In all cases fever and other diseases are apprehended. In Cavan the poor ar...

CHINA.—THE CHINESE PORT OF FOOCHOW-FOO. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 29 July 1846

CHINA.- THE CHINESE PORT OF FOO CHOW-FOO. (From the News of the World, Jan. 4.) The city lies 30 miles from the mouth of the river, in a valley on its right bank. The scenery of the Min from its emboucl?ure to Foo-chow has been compared to that of the Rhine, with which, indeed. it has some features of resemblance. The banks are generally steep and abrupt, and though upon the whole rather bare, In many places villages are seen half-embosomed in trees, and the land above and around is terraced even to the summits of the hills, and under carefulcultivation. A good deal of active bustle and improvement was perceptible as it ap proached the bridge. Numerous junks were lying in the river, their shapes and devices bespeaking the diferent ports to which they belonged, from the high poop and clumsy bulk of the Shanghai barks to the low, long craft, despatched from Ningpo, and waiting for a cargo of black tea, &c. Shore boats, filled with idle gazers, plied round us in great numbers, ...
