NEW SOUTH WALES. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 9 July 1856

NEW SOUTH WALES. We have news from Sydney to the 5th April. The wool market was well sustained, at former prices. There had been larger arrivals of tallow, pf which the town trade bought freely, but exporters vrere cautious. The import market was very dull; all parties were awaiting English advices. On the togar market the Herald reports Sugar — The business transacted in this article during die week has been confined to sales to the trade, who, we hear, have purchased considerably of raw sugars, at a slight reduction upon prices last quoted. The absence of arrivals prevents any speculation, holders being unwilling to operate lergely without further advices. Papers from the Mauritius to the 12 th February announce that but a very small portion of the 1155-6 crop remained to be shipped, for which advanced rates were demanded, especially for the light yellow qualities, in requisition for the Melbourne market. The Sugar Company gives the following quota tions: — Loaf snowdrops and Coss...

Markets. VICTORIA. 9th April. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 9 July 1856

HfctfltttS, VICTORIA. 9th Apbil. Bear's Weekly Circular reports some transactions in the money and land market: — Money Market— The rate of interest continues eteady at 10 per cent, on approved securities, and at that rate we have negotiated about £4,000 in various enms, on city and improved agricultural property. Bv the last mail we learn that Victoria Government debentures hare been, sold in London at par. This will no doubt cause them to be sought after as a remittance, if obtained at the same rate, or even at a shade higher, as their value increases by accumu lation of interest on the voyage. Hobson's Bay Railway shares are in the market at £47 10s. One hundred and fifty-six Melbourne Corporation deben tures are in the market, ranging from two to thirteen years. Stock and Stations.— On Tuesday last the Konong Wootong Station, the property of Messrs. J. & D.S. Carfrae, was submitted by us to public competition in one lot, and was first offered with 18,000 sheep, and the b...

Correspondence. BdfT--4s a general ride, we wish it to be understood that we do not identify ourselves with the opinion or expressions of our correspondents. ? .». ? To the Editor of the Inquirer and Commercial News. SIR, — The reasons given by Her Majesty's Government for not sending out a due proportion of free emigrants in fulfilment of its previous en gagement, appears, at first sight, fair and plau sible. But reflection will demonstrate that they are unsound ; for it is well known that the pre sence of a large body of ticket-of-leave men, has prevented the speedy absorption of free emigrants. We expected convicts to be em ployed on public works, and free emigrants in proportion. We did not expect men to be sent into the colony with tickets-of-leave to compete with the free labourer, and to paralyze immigra tion. The free labourer, with oftentimes a family to support, cannot compete with the unmarried ticket-of-leave man. Accra ding to the census taken in 1854, there were 2189 t...

Although the Colonists are dissatisfied with the general legislation at the recent Session of Council, yet upon one especial Ordinance is showered the unanimous disapprobation of all classes, and this obnoxious law will be come more particularly the object of protest at the ensuing public meeting. We allude, of course, to the Publican's Act. The Bill was introduced and carried in defiance of public opinion ; for it cannot be said that the Government were ignorant of the strong opposition which was raised against it without the walls of the Council Chamber. The mere rumour that such le gislation would be attempted created the greatest alarm, and, long before the publi cation of the Bill, its subject matter became, through the medium of the Press, known to the people, and created no slight agitation; but when the Sill was published, and it was discovered tha...

Review. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 9 July 1856

Review. The History of England from the Acces sion of James II. By T. B. Macaulay. Vols. III. and IV. Longman's. Tlie Whig organs have been blowing full blast for some time to get up 'a run' for these two volumes. Taking a leaf out of Barnum's book, they began mysteriously hinting some two years ago that they were ready for the press, when the discovery of some new documents had compelled the au thor to recast a great portion of his work. From time to time sundry hints were drop ped just to keep curiosity alive, until about two months ago, when the steam of puffery was put on at high pressure. Then ad vance proofs were shewn here, and mysteri ously whispered about there; then came tales of the immense demand, followed by exaggerated reports of the trade ' subscrip tions,' which, like a peace rumour on 'Change, served to run the figure up high er still. After that came calculations of how many copies the steam-press could work off in a day — that the first impression was sold even be...

Local and Domestic Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 9 July 1856

LOCAL and DOMESTIC INTELLIGENCE By a letter, dated Singapore, March 10, 1856, and addressed to a merchant in this town, we find that the horses exported per ' Swan' realized from §200 to §370 each, the dollar being, at that time, worth 5s 2½d — a very satisfactory price.     Some farmers on the Murray have been lately using fish as a manure and with success. Their plan is simply a layer of fish of any kind and then layers of earth, sea weed, &c. The heap is al lowed to remain for some time and becomes very strong manure. Those who have tried it state that the increase of wheat is about seven bushels to the acre. ? ♦ ? The Amateur Theatricals have passed off very well, the house being tolerably well filled on the second and third nights. We regret to hear that the gallery was not generally well filled, the body of the theatre being more generally patronised.
