BRITISH AND FOREIGN INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 4 November 1848

BRITISH AND FOREIGN INTELLIGENCE. WOOL MARKET. - The advices from Stettin notice the conclusion of the wool fair. Since 1826 so great a reduction had not been experienced in prices. Of the whole quantity offered, ? about 25,000 cwt. (being 3,000 cwt. less than last year), not more than a third found bnyers. At the Berlin wool fair the decline in prices is stated at from 20 dollars to 25 dollars per cwt. The largest buyers were English and Hamburghers.-Times, June 24. Ma. MITCHEL.-A sale of Mr. Mitchcl's effects took place to-day at his late «residen ce on Ontario terrace. Among ' the articles of VERTU ' ex- hibited, were a pike of enormous dimensions, fashioned after his own model, without crook or axe, a perfect " queen of weapons," and two cavalry sabres. The rooms were crowded to suffocation by persons of all1 ranks, and every article offered for sale was eagerly bought up at greatly enhanced prices. The pike was not set up before post hour, to the extreme mortification of numero...

THE WOOL TRADE. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 4 November 1848

THE WOOL TRADE. THE sudden, and apparently decisive, fall in the prices of our staple production, has created, in the large pastoral districts, a death-like depression : and public opinion -flying as usual from one extreme to the other-already predicts the annihilation of the squatting interest. This is taking by far too rash a view of the subject. Mr. Porter, in his letter, some extracts from which were published in our last, speaks of over-production as one of the causes of the fall in prices. Now there can be no doubt of the correctness of his view to a certain extent. It is beyond dispute that the supply was greater than the demand, or the value of the commodity would not so rapidly have decreased : but it is most important that we should under stand whether thistexcess of supply was caused by- an actuar superabundance of the material over the quantity required for the use of the world, or hy a deficiency of cash to make the usual purchases. Mr. Porter states that but»för'ajdefi...

DOMESTIC INTELLIGENCE. WARWICK. (From our Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 4 November 1848

DOMESTIC INTELLIGENCE. WARWICK. CFtom our Correspondent. J THE season here is exceedingly pleasant, and we have had several refreshing showers, occasioned by thunder-storms, which have caused herbage" to flourish luxuriantly, considering the early stage of the season. The bush throughout has seldom appeared so well, and in the New England district the grass appears equally forward. Shearing has   commenced here since the middle of September, but it was only a few that had began then ; now shearing is progressing in general, and the lamb- ing down is going on well throughout the districts. It is a most busy time in the bush, and there is plenty of employment for many, if they were to be had. ' ' The proposed township here is not making much progress: - there is a public-house in the course of erection, and a 6-dddler's ami blacksmith's bhop have already been established ; but improvements are retarded in consequence ot the delay m laying out the township. Numeious prison...

IPSWICH. CFrom our Correspondent.J WEDNESDAY, "Nov. ,1.-Dr. Simpson and Mr. Foster, from the Clarence, constituted the -Bench to-day. The eases were those of the Small Debts Court only, which were few, and quickly'settled, the whole not having occupied upwards of half an hour,; none of them, however, were of any public interest In the two last cases an agent appeared for the plaintiff ; but as the Bench had previously decided that none but deiks, servants, or attorneys could represent suitor3, the cases had to be dismissed : besides which the notes-of-hand, upon which the actions were brought, were paya- ble only to a certain party, and not to either bearer or onler; their Worships, therefore, decided that the notes were not negotiable, and, consequently, could only be sued for by the parties in whose favour they were drawn. The Flying Pieman performed here yesterday the feats which he proposed performing at Brisbane, viz. : wheeling a barrow half a mile, running forward half a mile...
