THE WOOL TRADE, &c. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 21 December 1850

THE WOOL TRADE, &c. [From. BelVs Messenger, August I'd.'] London. — Two brokers have issued cat alogues—one for 10,000, the other for 15,000 bales of colonial wool. The sales will commence on the 24th, according to ; present arrangements ; and it is expected that large additional quantities will be de clared this week, it being well understood that at least 50,000 packages will bs brought forward at this series. From the manufacturing districts we learn that the whole of the wool purchased at the last auctions has been worked up. The de mand by private contract is not to say ac tive; but prices are well supported. The imports last week were 259 bales, from Hamburg, 802 from the Cape, 151 from Mogadore, 1,387 from Algoa Bay, 1,779 from Sydney, 5 bags from Jamaica, and 70 packages from Ireland. ?Leeds. — Such, is the uniform character of the woollen trade at present, that we can say little more than we have said for weeks past, and that is, that a large amount of business cont...

X.3--al Intelligence. Stealing Floor. — The recent rise in the price of ft jar has not been without vit3 ef fects upon the state of public morality.

SYDNEY' MAllKETs.-FiuDAr. Wheat, Flour, &c— The report from Mr. Briellat's rriill is as follows: — The new crop comes in slowly, it being too earty in the season to expect any great supply. For the few small lots that have been received 5s. 6d. to 5s. 9d. was given. The Govern ment submitted to public sale some of the wheat stored in the siloes, but the limit be ing high in proportion to the quality, it was. mostly withdrawn ; a portion (1000 bushels) was sold at 5s.

Country News. BOWENFELS. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 21 December 1850

Country Hows. [from our correspondents.] BOWUNFELS. By too credulously listening to the ru mours which at first were afloat in this set tlement, respecting the melancholy and fatal accident which lately befel a young man in the service of Mr. Finn, of Hartley, we gave to our report a colouring which de mands correction. The young man's name was William Cummins. Though of Irish parentage he was a native of London, and had been but a year or so in the colony. On the morning of the day of the fearful catastrophe, he left his employer's residence with a horse and cart for the purpose of drawing sand. About 3 p. m. he was dis. covered by a Mr. — - — on the road leading from Hartley to the river Lett, lying under the overturned cart, with its rim resting on the back part of his head. The horse, still in the gear3, was lying on his back, with his feet up, in great distress. From general appearances it is thought that the animal had bolted, and that a wheel of the cart had been brought in f...

E^q', of Nubri gan, with a knife. Owing to some miti gating circumstances in the case, prisoner was forwarded by order of the coroner, Dr. Curtis, to Wellington, where he has been twice remanded. He will coptinue to be so remanded, we understand, until Mr. Finch^will be sufficiently recovered to pro ceed to Wellington to give his evidence. We were favored yesterday with a shower of rain which lasted about two hours, but it scarcely sufficed, comparatively speaking, to lay the dust. If more do not follow, large numbers of cattle and sheep must in evitably perish in this district for want of feed. The river Macquurie is very low, and the Bell nearly dry altogether.

Sudden, as a gun shot, the squall commenced, accompanied by continuous, and- vivid .lightning and thunder in every part, of the heavens, and in many at the same moment;- The town was completely enveloped in dust for a few seconds until the raia commenced.
