COMMERCIAL INTELLIGENCE. COMMERCIAL RECORD. Mercury Office, April 8th. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 9 April 1858

COMMEECIAQ INTELLIGENCE. COMMERCIAL BECOED. Mercury Office, April 8tb. Contrasting the past quarter with the same period of time in 1857, commerce and trade wear a very satisfactory nspect. For, although there is no particular animation iu any depart- ment of trade, business, generally speaking, is regular and steady. The most noticeable cha- racteristic of tho last few months, as respects trado and commerce, is the total i'bsenco of speculation. This indicates a sound and healthy stato of business ; and it is owing to this absence of speculation that the mci cantile community in this colony escaped uninjured during the great commercial crisis, which was productive of such injurious consequences in tho neigh- bouring colonies. Our export trado is on tho increase, and for tho first time for many years tho valuo of the exports of 1857 far exceeded the vnluo of tho imports of that year, the excess being £83,508. This improvement still continues, as tho returns of tho first quarter of t...

AGRICULTURE. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 9 April 1858

&QMGVWÜRE. We publish below a very interesting re- turn relative to the Agricultural Crops of I 'tasmania. The capacity of the soil of this Colony for carrying Crops is but very imper- fectly known, nor will this Return adequately proclaim it. The area shewn io be In culti- vation is but 13J,1QS acres, which consider- ing the areu that might be brought into cul- tivation.is a mere bagatelle. This return is mostly interesting as shewing the capability of our soil "for raising" crops.'.'We do not deny but that, fro.it various caines which are easily understood, agriculture in Tasmania, although it lins not been forsaken as a pur- suit, has yet; from the want of-competition, been fqllpv/oi in a slovenly and parpless /ray. The soil l)ii3 beet) neglected, and tlie crops have' became deteriorated in consequence. When, therefore, South Australia cunio into tile market to compete with us as a grower of wheat, (he superiority of her article was at once manifest ; and she took a posit...

THE MONTH. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 9 April 1858

THE MONTH. The events ofihe past month, although not vciy important in themselves, ure neverthe- less not devoid of inteiest. The new Postal arrangrments have been brought into opeiation. It will be remem- bered »hat, in order to make up a deficiency in the Ways and Means, the Government re- stated to un increase of postage, raising the rate from fourpence'to sixpence, and abolish- ing the, privilege of franking save in a very few coses. '1 he intention of the Govern- ment, however, is likely to be defeated ; for from what we have been able to gather, there has been a considi rabio falling ofl'in the amount of correspondence; and, in con sequence, no actual augmentation of the Postal revenues. Should the returns con- tinue to manifesta gradual diminution, we presume the Ministiy will have nothing for it, but to retreat into their former posit,on, and seek some other mode of supplying the de- ficiency. The Governor, Sir «Henry Young, has de- termined not to avail himself at present o...

THE ROYAL SOCIETY'S GARDENS. In the Queen's Park, and distant about three quarter» of a mile from tile City of Hobart Town, are the Gardens of the R_oya| Society of Tasmania.

THE MERCURY FRIDAY, APRIL 9TH, 1858. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 9 April 1858

THE MERCURY FRIDAY, APRIL 9ith, 1858. IMMIGRATiON carried on upon sound principies cannot fail to prove advantag- eous to the Colonies. Labor i* the only ml capital, and the mote of it a country abiór\>tt the wealthier that country «rill become. But labor, Uko everything .lae, requires that the supply should be Mgulated by the demand. Depart from this rule in either direction and mis- chievous results will follow. It is no advantage to a Colony to have its labor .market overstocked. It leads, as we Juro seen in Victoria, to much misery jand want. Labor cannot be valuaLie unless it can I* constantly employed. To maintain and support it without deriving any equivalent cannot fail to be destruc- tive of the real prosperity of a country, j It i« difficult we know to hold the | balance even between the two extremes ; | to regálate the supply so that it shall i not become too scarce and expensive .on the one hand ; or worthless, cutnber Mme, and inoperative on the other. * The British ...

THE HUON DISTRICT. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 9 April 1858

THE HUON DISTRICT. This, the most important section of the Southern division of Tasmania has, within the last few years, from its great producing re- sources, forced itself upon public attention. It derives its name from the magnificent river by   which it is intersected for upwards of seventy miles, navigable for ships of the largest tonnage for nearly two-thirds of that distance. The river itself takes its name from one of the illus- trious men who first traversed its forest-enclosed waters in search of La Perouse, the intrepid but unfortunate French navigator. Captain Huon Kermandie, it is recorded, was the first white man who had ever sailed over the deep bosom of this noble river ; and, as a befitting commemoration of the event, his Christian and surnames have been given to the most remark abla feature of the district - the main river and its most generous tributary, the Kermandée. For many years after the settlement of the Colony tho Huon District was comparativel...

THE BUSINESS BUILDINGS OF HOBART TOWN. RETAIL SHOPS. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 9 April 1858

THE BUSINESS BUILDINGS OF HOBART TOWN. RETAIL SHOPS. The social and commercial progress of a new country is in nothing more distinctly marked, than in the gradual improvement of its buildings from the rude tent, which is first pitched upon the land, to the commodious mansion erected in the country and the shop built in the town. The " old hands," who were want to talk of the temporary vice-regal residence as the "Camp," when ocoupied half a century ago by Governor Collins, are, we believe extinct or very nearly so, and should any octogenarian still linger in the land, and pay a visit to Hobart Town, great indeed would be his wondering surprise at the transformations which have taken place. Even in our own time- something more than a quarter of a century- many changes have been effected and within a comparatively recent period, the   improvements in the business buildings of the city have been carried on with a celerity, which has impressively altered the aspect of our c...
