Vasse. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 30 July 1856

ftasse. Advices from this district inform us that a dread ful accident occurred a few days since to a native named ' Black Bill,' who was shooting swans in company with a man named Cooper, when his gun burst and shattered his head to pieces. It appears that Cooper had placed a very heavjr charge of powder and shot iu the gun, and upon the top of it rammed in a balL The gun was completely shivered by the explosion. Much sa tisfaction is caused in the district by the receipt of intelligence that Mr Yelverton had received a fresh order for timber ; he bad previously paid off a numberof men.who were going about the country inanallbuldestiLuiic condition. The whaling opera tions would shortly commence, and this, with the timber trade, would have the effect of giving em ployment to a large body of men. The fresh de maud for produce in consequence, has induced a more healthy and inspiriting- state of affairs in the district, which has derived little advantage from theGovernnient expenditur...

VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 30 July 1856

TICTOBfeL From the Argus of 19th lost, we quota the fol lowing account of the markef|L The week that has just cltijmL has been the dull est of the season, notwithstmding that the fine weather at the commencement caused an appearance of reaction. The country buyers have kept oat of the market, except for small panels to supply pre sent wants. The uncertain state of the weather and me scarcity of cartage have checked this branch of the trade for the present, lower rates being looked for. The sales of merchandise by auction have not been heavy this week, nor have they been well at tended. The arrivals of imported goods hiTe been very moderate, those from foreign ports con pri iing three only — the Athelstone, from Liverpool, vith a general cargo; the E. Koppisch, from San Fi an cisco, with, floor; and the Falstaff, from Calcutta, with rice, wheat, and oats.

The Mulberry. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 30 July 1856

The Mulberry. The Australian soil is well suited for the growth ^ of the red and white mulberry trees, the latter so much used, like the Philippian species, for feed ing silk-worms. If ever the Australian colonists mean to have silk manufactories it is time they were making some preparation for it by planting f mulberry trees, although perhaps linsey-woolsey would become them better until they have raised themselves from being dependent on other coun tries for their daily bread. The black mulberry ^^ is a native of Persia, and is much grown in K Europe for its fruit. It will grow in almost any H kind of soil, in size often according to the rich H ness and depth of the same. Its fruit, although ™ more scanty and small ou a dry soil, is yet much earlier ripened and finer flavored than on a moist rich soiL Cuttings of any size will strike root, even pieces several inches in diameter. When a mulberry trea gets old and is blown down by the wind, it is often nourished by one or two roots,...

Local and Domestic Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 30 July 1856

'SoCiil and iemestitt JnfeltijgeuCtj. Notwithstanding the continued heavy rains we have experienced, until lately but comparative ly little had fallen over the hills, not sufficient to cause the smallest brook to Sow. The recent showers have, however, we hear, been less partial. From all parts of the country we hear good reports as to the state of the crops. ♦ ? The Court Martial is likely to sit' for some days yet, the evidence being lengthy and the course of procedure slow. On Thursday, Friday, Satorday, Monday, and yesterday, it sat from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. ♦ ? Now, that it is tolerably certain that we shall grow grain sufficient for our own consumption, the settlers are becoming aware of the fact that the colonial flour is susceptible of improvement, and that additional and superior mill machinery is required.

NEW SOUTH WALES. May 16. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 30 July 1856

NEW SOUTH WALES. May 16. General trade still continues doll, although we bare bad several extensive aaction sales of r.irious classes of merchandise. At these good prices bare, in most cases, been' realised: bat the weeks trade has, to a considerable extent, been confined to the auction rooms. A disinclination has been evinced to make large purchases otherwise than at auction sales. We briefly notice the principle of these. The spirit trade has been rather more active than we have re cently noticed, but this refers principally to two ar ticles viz., brandy end whisky. Tliere have been a few p'rivate salei of MarteU's brandy at 13s 9d per gallon, and there are holders at 14s.; this is a shade lower than last weeks quotation. Several pnrchases of whisky have also been made at 6s. to 6s 6d. per gallon. This is to meet the demand for the winter trade. Whisky of a good brand has been scarce in the market, and prices were considered as nominal; recent arrivals have, ' however, brought a s...

Markets. SOUTH AUSTRALIA. ADELAIDE MERCANTILE REPORT. May 22, 1856. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 30 July 1856

gterltets. SOUTH AUSTRALIA. ADELAIDE MERCANTILE EEPOET. May 22, 1856. There is considerable dalness in town trade at the moment, as much as we usually expect to find at the setting in of winter; bat in the market for import goods we are lightly stocked with some things which eell at good prices as they arrive, and the featuics of the trade generally are healthy though the tone is quiet The wool shipments of the growth of 1855 are now over; the whole export of the season is in excess of the last, and as new runs are being taken ud we may reckon npon a gradual increase. In flour 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 daring 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 ton, and in wheat to 8s. per bushel of 60 lbs.
