MELBOURNE MARKETS. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Guardian — 10 July 1857

"ullbourne markets. The past week seems to have been rather a dull one, in so far as business transactions were concerned. There appears .to have , been little desire either to purchase or press ! sales till the arrival of the mail, and hence the inactivity. - ' I Notwithstanding- the absence of anima tion, there has been no disposition mani fested to give way in prices. Indeed, flour has actually advanced,—some reports say ,| 30s., and others £3 per ton. It is said the advance lias been caused by advice's from South Australia, and also by the destruction of the crops by the late Hunter1 River inun dation. Colonial oats have ag'ain risen.to 14s. per bushel, and Scotch to 12s. • while a parcel of Scotch to arrive has been pur-; chased at lis. fid. per bushel. Rice is held firmly, in anticipation of an advance on the advent of 3000 additional I Chinese, daily looked for. i All kinds of spirits are firm, with an upward tendency. i Ale and porter are in less demand, but prices lmve not ...

Gipps Land Guardian, Friday, 10th July, 1857. THE LAND BILL. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Guardian — 10 July 1857

<£tpps EauiJ (^uarUtan, Friday, 10tk July, 1857. THE LAND BILL. The objections to the ministerial scheme for the settlement of the land question are as varied and almost as numerous as the speakers who advance them, and to judge from the opinions expressed by those who took part in the lengthy debates of the Legislative Assembly the bill sent to the Upper House, from that body is likely to bear., but a very slight resemblance to that which has given rise to srch warm discus sion "We do not however despair of seeing it fashioned into such a. shape as will settle the vexed question of. the squatters' tenure for some years.to come, and though, perhaps, in a manner not quite satisfactory to that class, yet, far to be preferred even by them to the unsettled and therefore unsatisfactory state in which it has hi therto remained. A reasonable rent the public have a right to expect, and this their tenants can have no objection to pay. We have also, as the present occupiers can onl...

NEWS FROM EUROPE. ARRIVAL OF THE COLUMBIAN. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Guardian — 10 July 1857

.NEWS FROM EUROPE. ARRIVAL OF THE COLUMBIAN. The Royal Mail Company's Steamer Columbicmanived in HobsOn's Bay atnoon, on Monday, 6th instant, and . has brought one of the largest mails ever dispatched from Great Britain to these colonies, con sisting* of 503 boxes, of which 252 are for Melbourne, 140 for Sydney, 49 for Adelaide, 55 for Tasmania, and 7 for King- George's Sound. The Columbian brings alarming intelli gence from India. A formidable mutiny had broken out among the native troops in Bengal, eleven thousand of whom are said to have cast off their allegiance, over powered their European officers, and pos sessed themselves of the city of Delhi. It is surmised that a continued system of tam pering with the religious opinions of the Sepoys has led- to the outbreak,\but tliis is • one of the numerous rumors afloat to ac count for the'mutiny. The more'probable cause is the intrigtiihg of Russia in Indian affairs. 1 ': ! Affairs in China remain in pretty much the. same state'as th...

FLOODS IN NEW SOUTH WALES. . The country around Maitland has been inundated by one of the most disastrous floods that has been experienced for many years. The Hunter and Patterson having both risen suddenly to an enormous extent. The former river, in less than twenty-four hours, rose from two feet above high water mark to twenty-six or twenty-seven feet, j It is feared that when the sudsiding of the . water enables intelligence to arrive it will be found that several'lives have been lost.
