THE WINE AND SPIRIT TRADE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 21 March 1868

THE WINE AND SPIRIT TRADE. The followin* is Mr. F. W. Cosens's circular, dated January 18', 1888 J— Although the Board of Trade returns for the past year are not yet issued, the figures representing' out trade in wines and spirits for 1867 may be estimated with sufficient accuracy for all practical pur poses. The home consumption of wine, which in 1862 was represented by 92.000 pipes, for 1887 willbe about 128,000 pipes, thuB proving that in spite of a high first cost (in consequence of short vintages) the reduction of the duty, made in 18 -1, has largely extended the demand for a commodity which had been previously taxed as a luxury. The bonded stock in the various ports of the United Kingdom is the smallest on record since 1864, when it stood at 135,000 pipes ; on the 31st December last it was estimated to be 129,000 pipes ; the annual con sumption is now about 146,000 pipes. Brandy shows a largely decreased import, a small in crease upon the home consumption, and a -large decreas...

MONETARY AND COMMERCIAL INTELLIGENCE. London, January 27, 1868. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 21 March 1868

MONETARY AND COMMERCIAL INTELLIGENCE. [From our own lleporter.] London, January 27, 1868. The monetary prospects of the new year do not vary considerably from those reported a month since. The last bank returns show a falling-off in the home demand for money. There i3 a decrease of £585,837 in the ' other securities,' and an increase of £53-3,085, in the reserve of notes. The bullion has augmented £114,690. Relative to the future, the Times says : — ' From the extraordinary pressure of specie in Pans and otner nnanciai centres it is likely that withdrawals from this side must soon cease, and as the state of the Continental money-markets may be expected to some extent, even in the face of the discourage ment caused by military armaments, to laise prices and stimulate industry, an early im provement in the demand for our manufactures, such as will bring back in payment a portion of the gold we have parted with for grain, is not improbable. Under these circuirstances there is a disposi...

IRELAND. FENIAN ATTACK ON A MARTELLO TOWER. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 21 March 1868

IRELAND. FENIAN ATTACK ON A MARTELLO TOWER. The martello tower at Fota, near Queenstown, was attacked on Friday night, December 27, by an armed band .with blackened faces who sur prised the three gunners in charge and seized some arms and a quantity of ammunition. The assault was so well planned that the gu ners, who were sitting at te-, did not know of the presence of their enemy until one of the Fe nians presented himself at the door of the tower. Five of the enemy immediately sprang into the apartment, and, p. esentine pistols at the gunners' heads, informed them that no harm would come to themif they quietly gave up their arms and ammunition. Sentries were placed over the artillerymen and the keys of the magazine demanded. Over 20 men entered it, and took between 250 lbs and 300 lbs. of gunpowder,' a quantity of fuses and appli ances ' for shells. They also made a close but ineffectual search for hand-grenades, of which they said they were in need. The Fenians remained over two ...

DARING SEIZURE OF ARMS IN CORK. . /A daring robbery of firearms was perpetrated on Monday, December 30, by Fenians in the city, of Cork. About 9 a.m. eight men, of American appearance, walked into the shop of Mr, Allport, gunsmith, Patrick-street, and, pre senting revolvers at his nephew and two assistants. * threatened to shoot them if tney offered resistance or called for aid.

BRITISH CORN MARKET. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 21 March 1868

BRITISH CORN MARKET. The following is Messrs. Burrows & Perks' summary for the Australian outward mail, dated January 25 : — Shortly after the departure of the last mail, and, which is somewhat unusual, before the close of the year, there, was a much larger demand for wheat and flour than at the com mencement of December. On the 30th ult. best samples of farmers' wheat readily brought an advance of Is. per qr., which rwas followed by a further rise of 3s. to 4s. , and of 2s. to 3s. for all foreign qualities on the 6th inst. Since then the demand has lessened, but prices in all cases have been firmly maintained. Best Ade laide wheat rose in value from 78s. to 81s. per 496 lb., ex granary, at the commencement of this month, and is now in good demand at the advance. The grain arrivals from the colonies during this month have been small— the Har wich from Adelaide, the Anglesey and Kent frem Melbourne, and the Strathdon from Sydney.

AMERICA. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 21 March 1868

AMERICA. From the United States we learn that the Senate having passed a resolution reinstating Mr. Stanton as Secretary of War, General Grant at once resigned the office which he had temporarily accepted, and Mr. Stanton returned to it. On Tuesday last, by more than a three fourths majority, they passed a Bill declaring that there are no valid civil Governments in the late rebellious States, and transferring all: powers of appoint ment and removal under the Reconstruc tion Act from President Johnson to General Grant as Commander-nvChief of the Army. There can be no doubt the Senate will confirm this vote, and . there is no apparent reason why the General in this case, as in that of Mr. Stanton, should not ebey the. decision of Congress. Once more Mr. Johnson' has been defeated Tirithout hope of retrieving his position. He will now be debarred from cashiering more of the military governors of the South, as he has already been deprived, of 'the power of dismissing obnoxious members o...
