COMMERCIAL INTELLIGENCE. CITY ARTICLE. Mercury Office, Saturday afternoon. In the grain market business lina been remarkably quiet throughout the week. "Wheat perhaps has been a little firmer i ||,e lagt day or two, but the quotation* I |lgVe not fluctuated, being still given at ' 7g. 6d. to 7s. 9d. for best samples. Tho enquiry for colonial oats is very trifling, and 6». Gi. per bushel is the ruliug figure.

The demand for Cape barley lalling off a decline took place, ami latterly this article has been quoted at Gj. öd. to 7s. per bushel neeording to sample.

OUR CRICKET MATCH. This Match was played on Saturday afternoon in the Government Domain.

THE NEW ASSESSMENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 12 April 1858

THE NEW ASSESSMENT. j A meeting of our Aldermen was con- vened for Saturday last to settle the amount of additional taxation ; but their sympathy with our afflictions kept them away. They had not the heart to do it. A man must be devoid of human feelings if he could tax us without re- luctance. But it will be done this afternoon. There is no help for it now, no rescue, ao evasion ; and we may as well take courage and look the evil straight in the face at onpe. After the cheerful predictions of Mr. WitLj+ot Cabtbb, who, by the way, was fearfully incensed with us for questioning the omnipotence of his figureK, it will be some relief to know that that gentle- man's forebodings haye turned out to be all moonshine, " I eouli shew indis~ pt/tablt/," writes Mr. CutTEB, "that the citizens MUST be taxed to the e«. tent I have named"-three shillings and threepence halfpenny in the pound.^ No wonder the people were alarmed at this assurance.

THE SPECULATOR. (From the Scotsman.) [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 12 April 1858

THE SPECULATOa. (From the Scotsman.) Speculation is a fine thing, and the speculator isa fine fellow. Dash and courage are immensely admired, ai,d though the one may be false and the I other mere temerity, the bulk of ihc people make no nice distinctions, hut accept a confident man on his own showing. The speculator occupies in the mercantile community | something of the position the rake did in general society in the days of our great-grandfather. He the Charles Surface of commerce,ivlinsc doings are considered pleasant, if wrong, and who not only enjoys a conventional immunity from censure, but a large j amount of positive admiration. Grave merclian's praise liim, and saje j bankers liles. He is believed to be engaged in large affairs, concerns whose very magnitude rouses respect and awe; and, except for an occasional timid whisper about the possibility of his having too many ¡rons in theare, no protest is enieied against his proceedings. And so he goes on, apparently riding on th...

CHINESE SKETCHES. (By the Times' Own Correspondent.) HOW PE[?]LN IS FED. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 12 April 1858

CHINESE SKETCHES. (By the limes' Oien Correspondent.) HOW PEELS IS FED. I have been investigating how Pekin is fed. I cannot quote my authorities withoutthe certain loss of my informants' heads, but the following may be implicitly relied upon as in the main correct. There are nine of the eighteen provinces of China nhb'h produce rice, and have, or rather had, mean? of water communi- cation with Pekin. These provinces are -Fuhkien, Chekinng, Kianj>¡-¡, ¡shan- tung, Hupeh, Human, Kiangsi, Nganh wui, and Szchuen. These provinces, according to aneieut precedent, pay their tribute to the capital in rice. They are hound to contribute in the aggregate 10,000 junk-, each containing 1000 piculs of 1331b English ; but in the arrangement of the proportion Shantung and Hunan, on account of their poverty or their small estent, only pay half "a province each. This arrangement gave an annual sup- ply oí 10,000,000 piculs to the imperial city, which, at the regular allowance of about 1-Jlb. per ...

THE MERCURY MONDAY, APRIL 12th, I858. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 12 April 1858

THE MERCURY MONDAY, APRIL 12th, IS58. Dcelvo the last few days we have been rery forcibly reminded of the approach of winter. Great coats and rheuaiatism have already made their appearance, and these are generally considered a pretty lair index of the approach of the winter Season. There are those, and they profess to be skilled in such matters, who predict that the approaching winter will be a very severa one. The sharp westerly winds which have prevailed during the last few days give some color to this prediction; and we naturally prepare ourselves to encounter the severity of the season. But the approach of winter will lead every benevolent mind to think of other» as well as of himseli. .Winter is the poor man's tyran*; Surrounded by all the luxuries of lifei and possessed of a goodly share of this world's go3ds,the changes ol the seasons «fiord the wealthy but little cause for thought : his comforts are at his own command : his wants are supplied on the instant they are bom.
