SYDNEY PRODUCE MARKET. [Newspaper Article] — Cootamundra Herald — 1 January 1878

SYDNEY PRODUCE MARKET. Mr. Graham Coui.tek s report for week ending Decem ber 27 : — In consequence of the holidays and the few dayi devoted to business since my last report, there has been very little done. The maize market has been Ann, and arrivals have been small ; the price now being offered is 4/7 and 4/8, and an improvement on this appears probable. The sales, however, from the same cause as assigned above, have been very limited. Oats are also very much wanted, but no sales have to be noticed. Breaastuffs : Flour is firmer, owing to the late war reports. Dairy Produce: Butter is very firm, and although the supply continues to be very good, every arrival is quickly taken up, principally by country purchasers. Cheese is slightly firmer, with no improvement in quotations. Bacon ia in £»ood demand ; well cured light sides are realising from 8id. to 9Ad. Poultry and eggs have become very dull, a great reduction in quotations will be perceived.

JOTTINGS PROM GUNDAGAI. By Cousin Will. Thursday, Dec. 27. Allow mo to wish you and your readers a happy New Year. I spent Christmas very agreeably, if not merrily. There were some who spent tho day as merrily as it were pos sible to.. spend it ; but 1 could not venture to say whether their merriment produced after agreebloness.

In the chronicles of the present century the year Eighteen Hundred and Seventy seven will occupy by no means an incon spicuous place ; and whatever events its last days may bring forth, it has a fair claim to be regarded as historically im portant, since in all probability the fate of an old and long established empire will be finally settled ere it sinks in the oblivion of the past. When the Con ference on the Eastern Question failed there existed hardly a chance of a peace ful solution of the difficulty, nor did any one really believe in such a result, what ever hope he may have entertained that too much blood should not be shed. It i.7; perhaps hard to say if Europe and. the world were less surprised at the pro longed reverses of the Russian arms than they were at the collapse of the military .prestige of France six years ago. But of this there can be no doubt that however ailing the ' sick man' morally may be, he is physically still pretty staunch ; and however firmly we may adh...
