A correspondent writes on 30th ulttimo: — 'We had a visit from the Colonial- Secretary last week. He arrived on Saturday, 23rd instant, remained at Mr Bunbury's until Monday the 25th, when he start ed on his homeward trip. On the Monday he visited the townsite for a'few minutes, and he could not do much for our district in that short time I suppose he was imitating the Governor, who visited the Vassc in the same hurried way. The timber business is going on prosperously. There is now nearly a full cargo ready for the Champion, but Mr Yelvcrton has been at. some expense, having had to build two bridges; one across Karbenup, and snother across ri;e Mary Brook. The roads, however, are still very bad from the station to the beach. A new store has been opened by Mr Yelvertou tn the town site. It is well stocked, but prices arc high — about 100 per cent over Fremantle quotatioKs.'

Pork [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 10 September 1856
(From a Correspondent) The river Avon has risen., kigher this winter tlian it has for several seasons previi us, and the inter course between the two portions of the town of York has been considerably interrupted. A kind of raft has been in use at the depot, and, with tbe exception of I\Ir Siephen Parser's boat, has been the only means of teaching the other side; both have been pretty well plied, and I must say Mr Parker deserves thanks for the manner in which he has placed his boat at the sr-rvice of the public, often, especially on Sunday, pulling parties across himself. The old subject of a bridge, and the site for one, is again started. Certainly a winter like the present affords a very fair opportunity of choosing a good position. The pool at York otters two excellent ones, bat which will have the distinguished honour of supporting a bridge — that is, such a one as will pre sent the means of transit for teams in all weathers — is as yet uncertain. I hear a rumour of a subscrip ...
TASMANIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 10 September 1856
TASMANIA. We extract the following from the Cornwall Chronicle of June 2Sth: — Launceston. — The price of flonr at most of the mills has been further reduced, but owing to the difficulty of bringing grain from the country districts to town during the continuous wet weather which has prevailed here for such a length of time, wheat is still in demand at 7s to 7s 6d per bushel. Pota toes are quoted at from £2 to £3 per ton. Hobart Town. — Fine n'our, £23 to £24 per ton; Ha-tall and Gallego do,, £3 to £3 3s per barrel; wheat, Ss 6d to 9s per bushel; oats, 5s 6d. bran, Is gd per bushel; potatoes, £3 10s to £4 per ton; bread, per 4-lb loaf, 9d.
VICTORIA. July 1st [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 10 September 1856
VICTORIA. July 1st [From the Melbourne Journal of Commerce. We regret that we are not able to report any change in the general state of our market. Business coutiuues inanimate, and trade is altogether slow. KELBOCUXE GOLD CIRCCLAB. Saturday. June 28. The price of gold remains unaltered, namely, at 76s., with liuie demand, and the supply not very abundant. The indiscriminate system of buying ingots at the gold-fields has met with a check, which oKjrht to put a stop to that mode of purchasing by the Banks without sonic guarantee or certificate' of quality. We know of a quantity lately purchased, and which to all appearance looked what it was represented, but when rcmelted and assayed turned out 2 carats, or 7s per outice below ths ordinary value of alluvial gold. We arc aware that a recklessness exists among the Bank purchasers at the diggings, which has proved to be very unprofitable in its results; and now that such a loose and careless system has been allowed to creep in, they wil...
FOREIGN AFFAIRS. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 10 September 1856
FOBEIGN AFFAIRS. $sie Italian question is stili uppermost in men's minds; indeed, it is almo t the only topic of conti .jtcntnl interest Our c»rly statement that Austria had been making overtures of some sort or another to Prussia with reference to the Lombardo-Yenctian territory is now generally accepted as a fact, and sinffnlarlv enouirh v;s receive indirect confirmation of it by way of Turin. We understand that the Sar dinian Court has been informed that Prussia wiil not meddle at all with Italian matters. Why, whoever could have asked her to do so, or have supposed that (under circumstances) she had any claim to do so, except Austria? This also tends 'to show that we were not wrong in staling that Sardinia had grown in the groJ graces both of Russia and Prussia. Such uti entente curdi ah between the north of Europe and the south niav well disquiet the Cabinet of Vienna ; and it is, perhaps, this state of affairs, much more than the failure of their negodarions with Prussia, whic...

Markets. SOUTH AUSTRALIA. ADELAIDE MERCANTILE REPORT. Tuesday evening, July 1, 1856 [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 10 September 1856
Jftarhets. SOUTH AUSTRALIA. ADELAIDE MERCANTILE REPORT. Tuesday evening, July 1, 1856 The rains have been unusually heavy this winter for so early in the season, and though this has given the farmer a favourable sowing time, the badness of the roads occasioned by it has very much hindered commercial business the last few weeks. la English goods, consequently, sales ior the most part are difficult to make in quantity, and where pressed, somewhat lower prices have to be submitted to. Public attention has latterly been turned more pointedly to the route by the Murray for reaching the Victoria mines, as well as the sheep-stations and other settlements in its vicinity (which latter have hitherto been the sbief object of the naviga tion), and sanguine expectations are held of a re gular ar.d increasing trade opeuing out, as supplies, especially of colonial produce can be sent there cheaper 'from hence by this means than from Mel bourne, the difference of cost being greater during the wiat...
