COMMERCIAL INTELLIGENCE. YESTERDAY'S MARKETS. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 10 April 1858

COMMERCIAL" INTELLIGENCE YESTERDAY'S MARKETS. I There is no animation in the grain i market. Wheat is still quoted at 7s. 6d. to 7s 9d. per bushel with better inquiry . to day. Colonial oats arc seldom asked for at Äs. Gd. per bushel. English bar- ley is in good demand at 8s. to 8s. 6(1. but the market is very scautily supplied. The demand for Cape barley has fallen off and quotations arc given at 6s. Cd. to 78. per bushel according to sample. Hay is in brisk demand and prices have an upward tendency ; loose hay has advanced considerably and some small quantities realised to-day at £8. to £9 ; country pressed hay ranges from £6 10s. to £7 10a. per ton according to quulily, and the hydraulic pressed fetches £8 10s. per ton. Potatoes sell at £9 to £10.4. per ton but not much is doing. Onions arc still quoted at £18 to £20 per ton but the enquiry to-day was very trifling. The flour market continues very quiet. Flour from the best colonial wheat has been selling throughout the week at £...

THE MERCURY SATURDAY, APRIL 10TH, 1858. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 10 April 1858

THE MERCURY SATURDAY, APRIL IOih, 1858. > What are the Country Districts about ? We do not hear that any one of them is petitioning the Governor in Council praying that their town, or district, night be proclaimed a Rural Muniei ~~pality. Why is this ? Is it because the principle of the Act is not under- stood ? Or, is it because the people do '"' not consider the advantages to be gained by having the management of their own «flairs worth petitioning for P Or, is it because their representatives and leading men are too indolent to take the matter ' in hand and set the necessary machi- nery in motion ? Man is a queer - animal. When local institutions of this ' nature were beyond our reach, what a Commotion we created because we had them not ! Now that they are within our reach wo will not put out our hand to take them. Does this arise from ignorance, from sloth, or from degene* j racy ? If from the two last we hare ' »ot the means of »topping so universal an epidemic ; if from the...

THE POST OFFICE. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 10 April 1858

THE POST OFFICE. We feel it to be our duty to direct the most serious attention of the Post- master General to the great inconve- nience and positive wrong which are being inflicted upon our merchants and others by the y.ery slovenly aud unsa- tisfactory way in which the departure of Mails has been lately aunouoced. A few days ago the Mails per City of Moiart were offioialiy announced in the journals to close on Wednesday last at 2 o'clock Mf,, and, of course, our mer- cantile men made their epistolary arr rangements accordingly. After having | once referred to the official notice, and ascertained the hour upon which the maus ftould be closed, it has never been thought necessary to revert to it again ; »ad, cpruequenty-. any subsequent alter« ation in the hour escapes observation. On the day prior to her sailing, the Post Office authorities altered the time for closing the mails from 2 o'oloek p.m. to 11 o'clock a.m., a circumstance which remained undiscovered by several mer- chants...

THE JORDAN ELECTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 10 April 1858

THE JORDAN ELECTION. We are informed that an attempt has been made by a few mischievous persons to create a little political excitement by flatly contradicting the truth of certain statements made by us iu reference to the Jordan ejection. Our readers need not to be told that we nevor promulgate statements until we are well convinced of their authenticity. When, therefore, we informed the public that Mr. James Maclanacuax had declined under any circumstances to present himself as a Candidate for the representation of Jordan, we did so, as we ¿hen stated, upon "undoubted authority." Thai; that authority should be questioned, creates no surprise when we recollect the character of the persons who haye questioned it. Lest, however, we should hare misunderstood ftp information coa. veyed to us, we have again made enqui- ries of our informant, one of the leading merchants of this City,'and he assures us. that he received a letter from Mr. Maclanachan on Tuesday last, in which that gentle....
