COMMERCIAL. Friday Evening, April 20. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 21 April 1866
COMMERCIAL. Friday Evening, April 20. '? Business in the produce markets has been very stagnant during the wtck. Only a few unimportant transactions have taken place, and there have been only buyers for stored wheats. We have heard of one sale at Port Elliot yesterday of 300 bushels of stored wheat at 5s. 0 J., but a higher price would ? have been given to-day. The farmers here Lave still considerable stocks of wheat on hanJ, either stored or advanced on by millers or agents. 1 he u.ilis are all busily at work, and there appears to be no present probability that ! local circumstances will very much affect the market j But the advanced rates ruling in Adelaide on TLurs- I day and Friday have already given a firmer tone to j prices here.
