COMMERCIAL INTELLIGENCE. YESTERDAY'S MARKETS. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 24 March 1858

COMMERCIAL INTELLIGENCE. YESTERDAY'S MARKETS. There is very little movement in tho grain uiaiket, there being no speculative demand whatever. Wheat has been coining in rather more freely lately, but operations aro very limited. Ii any- thing, vi heat was not quite so firm to- day an last quotations, pm chasers being disinclined to give more than 7s 6d per bushel; a very superior sample will, how ever, still fetch 7s Oil. The demand for colonial oats bus subsided, but the quotations remain unchanged, being still given at 6s Gil to 7s. English barley moves off readily when it comes into the market, but supplies come in very slovt ly ; sales have been effected lately at 8s 3d for good samples, but prices range from 7a 6d to 8a Gd accord- ing to sample. Cape barley fetches from 6s 6d to 7s 3d. Hay is in good demand and business is much brisker; loose hay realizes from £6 10s to £7 ?. 16s per ton according to quality ; country ¡¡ pressed from £6 10s to £7 10s ; and to hydraulic pressed f...

THE MERCURY WEDNESDAY, MARCH 24TH, 1858. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 24 March 1858

THE MERCURY WEDNESDAY, MARCH 24wr, 1858. ?Ost of the dark spots in the month's ' revelations is the earthquake at Naples, ' and the fearful destruction of human life which it has occasioned. Unhappy Naples ! Nothing but ruin and disaster < -.without and within for the people of that afflicted Country. Her whole his« tory proclaims her as one singled out for the wrath of angels and of men. Under her very foundations are concealed the ¿Volcanic agencies which sooner or later ! will bury her in a similar tomb to the -one they found for Pompeii, t' ina a inore desolating heap of ruins than those in which even that ancient City was buried. With a natural earthquake ' embowelled beneath her feet, and with .a moral earthquake seated upon her throne, she is indeed of all countries the j most miserable. In 14S6,40,000 of her inhabitants were destroyed ; in 1638 a third part of the City was destroyed ; again in 1731, and in 1805, was this unhappy' City convulsed by nature's "agenci...

THE ANNEXATION OF OUDE. (From the Leader.) [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 24 March 1858

THE ANNEXATION OF OÜDE. (From the Leader.) The partisans of the dethroned dynas- ty of Oude have attempted to make capital out of the Indian mutiny. They have succeeded so far as, by ex parte representations, to induce a good many writers to attribute the insurrection of the Sepoys almost wholly lo the annex- ation by Lord Dalhousie of Wajid Alee Shah's dominions. That the rebellion was thus originated is matter of history, we are told. History will not take that view of the matter. No one cause produced the revolt of a hundred thou- sand Eoldiers of various classes, creeds, and nationalities. Observers in India, transmitting home their opinions, have enumerated at least eight different in- fluences which acting upon the Hindoo and Mahommedan mind have resulted in this tremendous explosion : -a sus- picion of a systematic design to Euro- péanise and Christianise the native army; the unhealthy pampering of the high-caste sepoy; the greased car- tridges ; the absence of European offi-...

THE HISTORY OF A CO. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 24 March 1858

THE HISTORY OF A CO. When Mark Tapley was taken into partnership at Eden, he said that he was delighted at last to think he was a Co., lor he had always wished to know what a Co. was, and now hu had found out. If Mr. Stephens ever indulged in a si- milar curiosity, he must have amply gra- tifie! it. He must have exhausted the sensations of being a Co. He has shown himself ready to be a Co. in any imar ginable trade at a moment's notice, ft was his profession. Nominally, he was a manager of a bank, but really his oc- cupation was being a Co., ditjerent offi- cials of the Eastern Banking Company joining in the diversion. In 1855 he was a Co. three times. First of all, he and the secretary of the bank, Air. Black, were "Lett's Wharf Company," timbar merchants and sawyers ; then he and one of the directors, Mr. Lattey, were Barwise and Co., watchmakers; and lastly, he and Colonel Waugh were the Brauksua Clay Company. lu 185.6, lie and the, secretary became.

COMMERCIAL INTELLIGENCE YESTERDAY'S MARKETS. Business continues very quiet in the grain market. A first-rate sample of wheat realized to-day 7s. 9d. per bushel, but that figure is very difficult of obtain ment, 7s. Cd. being the average price. Colonial oats have declined, and are quoted at 6s. Cd. for best samples. Barley is in good demand and prices are firm, Cape fetching 6s. Gd. to 7s. 3d., and English, 8s. to 8s. Gd., according to sample. A few parcels of English were sold to-day at 8s. Gd. Hay is in fair demand at recent prices, loose hay ran- ging from £610s. to £7 15s. ; country pressed from £6. 10s, to £7 10s., and hydraulic pressed from £8 to £9 per ton according to quality. Potatoes are still selling at £10 to £12 per ton, and supplies como in very slowly. The failure of the potatoe crop in N. S. W. will ultimately affect this market. Onions aro quoted at £16 to £18 per ton. There is very little movement in the flour market. Flour from the best colo- nial wheat realizes £1...
