Commercial WEEKLY EPITOME. TheChronicitOtG.ce. '? Friday evening, April 19, Genebax Mebchandibs. This week has been almost a barren one so far as important transactions are concerned. The exceptionally wet weather has been to some extent the cause of this, while during the last day or two the approach of the Easter holidays has tended to restrict operations. The very favorabje weather for the country is causing a cheerful feeling amongst the mercan tile community, and if it continues trade is bound to improve. There is nothing of conse quence doing in sugars for the sole reason that there are no supplies offering in first hands, the market being absolutely bare, otherwise as it is an advancing one there would undoubtedly be a large business passing. The arrival of the L'Avvenire with a Mauri tius cargo is now eagerly looked for. A Mauritius cablegram just to hand states ! that there are now no Eugars in first hands { there ; mail advices of March 11 report freights ; higher and vess...

Until the bridges are erected the crossings may be expected to be washed out at every flood during the winter, and as business will thus be continually in terrupted, it behoves the business people of Kapunda to insist on the re-erection of the bridges without any unnecessary delay...

There was evi dently another cause for the tour. Some tew weeks ago meetings were held in different parts of Mr. Playford's constituency severely commenting upon the refusal of the Government to grant eeed wheat under any conditions or cir cumstances to selectors who could not possibly get it otherwise.
