Sydney Markets. (Harrison, Jones and Devlin.) The market for wheat has during, the past Week been very unsettled, and it is rathfcr difficult to quote prices. Owing to the shortage of wheat a few trucks which have come forward for sale at auction have brought extreme prices, up to 4s 8d per bushel, having been purchased for chick feed, while shippers aud millers are not prepared to give ov.er 4s Id per bushel, and for im mediate delivery this may be quoted as market value. The market it firm, and higher prices are likely to be obtained as the season advances. The demand - for oats continues good, but prices show n<> chauge. . Supplies of locally cut new chaff are coming^forward very freely, and prices generally show a marked de cline on those lately, ruling. The following are the ruling rates for the various descriptions of produce ex rail or wharf Wheat: At aucion, up to 4sTJ--Sd, December delivery to 4s id per bushel.

FASTEST SHIP IN THE WORLD. Exceptional interest (says the "Daily Mail") attaches' to ttiu triuls of the new destroyer of destroyers, Swift, which is expected to lower all records for speed, British and foreign, and to prove herself iar the lasteat vessel in the world.

GENERAL NOTES. The strong, vigorous, healthy pig Is the one to resist disease, hence the - necessity to kceP the pigs in this condi tion. No animal Is so liable to contagious diseases as the pig, therefore only good clean food and pure water ahould be given. A colt Is as easily raised on cow's milk as any other young animal, though there OS ems to be some difference of opinion on the subject. The root of the lucerne plant develops as the top develops, the more leaves and stem there are the stronger and larger the roots. .It Is estimated "that tho New South Wales wheat crop will nrodtiea 20,000,000 bi-?lioJs this season. The area in cultivation amounts . to 440 acres. . * Tho Argentine Government Is devis ing a system for posting daily reports of tho bfflclal market prices of wheat, maize, linseed and oats at all the rail way stations.
