Markets. SOUTH AUSTRALIA. ADELAIDE MERCANTILE EEPORT. Mar 22, 1856. There if considerable duluess in town trade at the moment, as much as we usually expect to find at the setting in of winter; bnt in the market for import goods we are lifl-btlv stocked with some things which sell at good prices as they arrive, and the featuies of the trade generally arc healthy thcragh the tone is quiet. The wool shipments of the growth of 1855 are now over; the whole export of the season is in excesB of the last, and as new runs arc being taken up we may reckon npon a gradual increase. In floor and wheat the harvest of last year has been so productive that we are still going on. export ing largely, and shall do so most probably during the remainder of the year, though in former years the bulk of the crop bas usually left during the first six months. We have to note a decline in the price from the date of our report of 21st ult, to £21 per fon, and in wheat to 8s. per bushel of 60 lbs.

The Inquirer & Commercial News. Quid verum atque decens, curo et rogo, et onmis in hoe sum. WEDNESDAY, JULY 23, 1856. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 23 July 1856
Quid rervtn atque decens, euro et ftyjo, et onmis in hoc sum. WEDNESDAY, JULY 23, 1856. The York settlers have followed up in a very satisfactory manner the meeting held in their district some weeks since, in the shape of the resolutions passed by the Corresponding Committee, and published in to-day's jour nal. The continued activity of our Eastern friends is not alone a matter of gratification to tbeadvocates of good government through out the Colony, but is a positive assistance to them. It acts as a spur, an incentive to others, who naturally proceed with more confidence when they know they are sup ported by the settlers of that section of the Colony, from whence is derived so large a share of our exports. It will be seen that these resolutions re cognize the general principles for which we contend ; and with reference to the chief ob jects of the central meeting — the amendment of the Council, and to protest against the recent legislation — the resolutionists have set that matte...

MRS. DURDEN'S VIEW OF PEACE. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 23 July 1856
MRS. BURDEN'S VIEW OF PEACE. They say we're to have peace: I hope it is'ntmere imagination ; For caudles, brushes, string, and soap have risen up to ruination: And what we've had to pay for bread! of war that gives one some idea, Kot to say nothing of the dead and wonnded in that there Crimea. Then there's that plaguy Income Tax, that rides, as I may say, a-straddle, And sticks upon our breaking backs just like a mon key in a saddle; Which, if the War goes longer on, in course expenses 'Drill TAflsYnVfclo And what we must depend upon is dearer things and further trouble. But there; if I've a thing to do, my tnayim always is to do it; If Fve a job for to go through, I makes up my mind to go through it. 'Tis all the same, I don't care what — washing, or ironing, or scrubbing, And if so be as we have got to give them Rooshans there a drubbing. I never leaves my work half done — a stocking or a gown half mended; What has to be agin begun is twice the time afore 'tis ended; And what I fi...

British Relations with America. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 23 July 1856
British Relations with America Our impression of yesterday contained important documents in relation to the ex isting misunderstanding between the British and American Governments. Since the date of former advices the question has un dergone some not unimportant modifications, the most noticeable of which is the complete bouleversement effected in reference to the enlistment dispnte. At that tune it was understood that the British Government had satisfactorily ' explained' to the Govern ment of the United Staates, and that the enlisting agents having been unconditionally withdrawn, there was on that subject no further ground of controversy. The point remaining waa tuai m iciuuuu iu v/euirtu. America, the position of Nicaragua under the King of Mosquitia being the centre of the misunderstanding, and the alleged ex tension by the British of their settlement at Belize making up the aggregate of the dis pute. Such, on the whole, appeared to be the position of affairs; but now the enlist...
LOOSE THOUGHTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 23 July 1856
LOOSE THOUGHTS. BT A FAST MAN'. When the maiden aunt comes in at the door, it is time for the cigar to fly out of the window. We all have our troubles; hut I doubt if anything be half so annoying as, when giv ing your address to a tailor whom you have never before done business with, accident ally letting a ticket from your pawnbroker drop out of your case. The pursuit of knockers is sometimes un der difficulties. But few things perhaps mora completely damp one's ardour for it than the emptying of a water-jug from the first-floor window. In my dealings with ' knowing cards' I have found them pretty generally turn up knaves. It is a waste of breath disputing with the cabman. The only reasoning to use with him is a knock-down argument. Every rose has its thorn. I never helped to shawl the flower of a ball-room without being convinced, by painful evidence, that she had a pin about her. The reflective mind may derive consider able entertainment from the train of thought induced by direc...

Swan River Convicts. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 23 July 1856
Swan River Convicts. We think it is high time some decisive steps were taken with reference to the nu merous conditional-pardon men who are now known to be prowling about the Co lony. Various robberies have been com mitted of late, and some of them under cir cumstances of so much impudent daring as to warrant the suspicion that they were the work of old hands. It is not long since a store in one of the eastern suburbs was rob bed, the depredators adding insult to inj ury by carrying off the watch-dog with the rest of their plunder. The police reports, as published in our columns from time to time, sufficiently show the class of characters with whom we have to deal; and it will be well if many more equally ominous-looking cases are not reported during the winter. The immediate occasion of these remarks may be found in a case heard on Tuesday last, before the Police Magistrate of this city. It appears that a conditional-pardon man, named James Thompson, was found by Sergeant Badman wa...

The Wools of New South Wales. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 30 July 1856
The Wools of New South Wales. In the Worth British Agriculturist of January 23rd is published the report upon the Wools of New South Wales. This we transferred to our columns of Friday, and we also publish the following article on the wools of this colony, which will be read with great interest by both producers and buy ers. ' The substance of a report on the Wools of New South Wales, furnished to tbe Ju rors of Class 8, at the Universal Exhibition, Paris, will be read with interest. As we have before remarked, several of the Bri tish colonies were admirably represented — none more so than New South Wales. The collection itself was splendid, and the ar rangement and general features such as im pressed the public and scientific men spe cially, with a high estimate of the intelli gence of those who had been sent from this colony to superintend the Exhibition.

Chamber of Commerce. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 30 July 1856
Chamber of Commerce At a meeting of this body, and of those engaged in trade in Perth, Fremantle, and Guildford, held at the Freemason's Hotel on Wednesday last, the following resolu tions were passed: Proposed by Mr King aud seconded by Mr G-. Shenton: — ' That the Chamber of Commerce is deejily im pressed with the necessity which exists for the passing of such a law as will effectually protect the honest man who, in the vicissitudes of com mercial, agricultural, or other pursuits, followed for the support of himself and his family, is over whelmed with difficulties which he could not ward off, while it punishes the man who runs into debt which he knows he cannot, and does not intend to pay. That injustice to themselves, their fami lies and society, the members are determined not to relax their efforts until the present iniquitous law, which encourages the fraudulent practice of making over property to one individual to the ex clusion of other creditors, is swept away, and one more...
