ALTHOUGH there has been ¡in particular sur or auimation in any of the markets this week, yet, on tile wholei business has been uniformly steady and moderate, and afford» no reason for complaint or disquietude. For some lime the demand for expirtation has been very triflng, mid in consequence busi- ness has been nlmo-t entirely restricted to transactions for local uses. In some respects there has been au im- provement in the grain market, as compared willi the last two or three weeks, and some articles have met with rather more enquiry. Taking all things iii to consideration, and making due allowance for the unsettled and depressed condition of the Melbourne mar- ket, prices have remained firmer than might hare been anticipated. Since last week the new standard of weights and mea- sures has come into operation, and wheat is now sold at GOIbs to the bushel, instead of Gtlbs as hitherto. Wheat has met with more ...

POLICE OFFICE-SATURDAY. Night Charges.-There were but two chaige'8 this morning; both of which were remanded. AstáútK-This was an information brought by the Cook of the¡Iris (Janies) against the mate of the samo vessel (Smith) for assaulting him. The de- fendant pleaded guilty, but in extenua- tion said that lie hail received gross pro- vocation from the cook, who first of all had neglected to provide his breakfast, and, then, added insult to injury, by abusing him when he remonstrated on his unnatural conduct.

DR. HALL AND OUR WHEAT. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 11 January 1858

DR. HALL AND OUE WHEAT. Dit. HA.LT., has called upon us relative to the articles which have appeared in this journal lately, upon the subject of our wheat. He assures us, in the most solemn manner, that he not only drew no such comparison himself, between the wheat of this colony and South Austra- lia, but that, so far from doing so, he had set his face on all occasions against any such comparison being drawn. His object, he states, was merely to show the insufficient amount of nouiishmeufc received by the children in the Orphan School ; and that the comparison be- tween the amount of gluten contained in our wheat, and that of South Australia, was merely introduced incidentally, and was the opinion of Du. GAUNT of Ade-' laide and not his own. It is unfortu- nate that, opposed to this, we have the report of the meeting furnished by our- selves, in which Du. "I TALE is represented as having concurred in the opinions ex- pressed by Du. GAUNT, as well as the distinct; recollections of m...

INDIA. NANA SAHEB'S PROCLAMATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 11 January 1858

INDIA. _ I ÎÎANA SAUEll'S 1'nOCLSiLA.TIOX. I A correspondent of the Lahore Chro- nicle Inn sent our contemporary a trans- lated copy of an extraordinary document being nothing less than a proclamation issued hy Nana Saheb with a view to inspiring and spreading the belief that the British Government meditated the forcible, conversion of the p°ople of Hindostán, and of encouraging revolt by the lying assertion that the troops which were said to have been sent from England had been s'opped on the road and destroyed by the Pasha of Egypt. In this precious manifesto, the nrch ruifian of'Bithoor blends his acquired knowledge and his native mendacity, in a remarkable manner. The thing would be amusing, ii anything connected with the treacherous savage in the events in which he has figured, could partake ol that character. Here it is : PItOCEAUATIO>\ " It has bee i ascertained fiom a tra- veller, who has la'ely ariived at Cawnpore from Calcutta, that previously to the distribution of the...

So je, have been sub scribed (of which 13,0110 dois, have been remitted to Calcutta), for the relief of the sufferers. The new Governor is winning golden opinions from all classes of the colonists. In the Legislative Council on the20th of November, a Minute was read from His Excellency on a letter from a Sur- veyor General concerning the number of Immigrants required for his department. His Excellency was of opinion that the 1200 men required should be divided over three years. There were 200 arri- ved for the Government, but by some extraordinary occurrence he had learnt that they were engaging their services with private parties.
