MISCELLANEOUS SHIPPING. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 14 April 1858

MISCELLANEOUS SHIPPING. The whaling brig Pryde, which arrived yester- day, left this port on October ICtb, 1857. Ocean Steamers.-Science is playing sad havoc with the poetry of the sea. The callant bark that spreads her " Bnowy wings" to the breeze, and skims the waters " like a thing of IKe," promises to become nn image of the past. Floating cities of iron, bearing their black cliini peys n'oft, threaten to Hsurp her place. Even tho " wooden" avails of Qlil England will bo n misnomer ; the " Shipwreck" of Falcnnor will refer to an incident which, science says, will almost become unknown ; and if haply the next century should possess a Dibdln, bo will have,to sing of con! and screw instead of wind and sall. The present ¡dca in ship building of oppo-ing force to force-of combating the storms of tho ocean by increased sizo and with a power equal ao their own-is a happy one. Hitherto the proposition that "Hritoniun rules the waves" ba¡ looked very doubtful, especially to persons who ha...

THE MERCURY WEDNESDAY, APRIL 14th, 1858. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 14 April 1858

THE MERCURY WEDNESDAY, APRIL 14th, 1858.   The trip of the Monarch steamer to the   Coal Mines on Monday has a more im- portant feature than that of a mere trip of pleasure or of an excursion intended as being complimentary to Mr. JAMES   HURST, who proceeded in her to take   possession of the Mines under his new     contract. We are disposed to view it   more, as a recognition, on the part of     many of our community, of the high   importance which ought to be attached to any and every step taken for develop   ing the mineral productions of the Colony.   Viewed in that light the " Trip to the       Mines" becomes an event of Commercial   importance. In all probability, too, the working of the Mines by the new Con- tractors, men of energy, capital, and scientific knowledge, wil...

COMMERCIAL INTELLIGENCE. YESTERDAY'S MARKETS. The grain market continues very quiet though tlure was rather more inquiry to-day. Wheat exhibits a downward tendency, and is quoted at 7s. 3d. to 7s. Gd, per bushel. Colonial oats have improved in demand, and prices have again goue up ; the quotations being now given at Gs. Gd. to 7s., some sales being effected to-day at the latter figure. English barley is in great request, and sells readily at 8s to 8s. Gd., good sam- ples. Cape barley is not much enquired for, and is still quoted at Gs. Gd. to 7s. Hay is in brisk demand and mo\e; off r -adily, loose hay fetching from £8 to £9, and country pressed from £7 10s, to £8 10s. per ton, according to quality ; hydraulic pressed hay realizes £9 per ton, and is in especial demand.
