Commercial Intelligence. ENGLISH. MONETARY TRANSACTIONS OF THE WEEK. (From our City Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 26 March 1855

Commercial ïnt^Ujcivrc. ENGLISH. MONETARY TRANSACTIONS OF THE WEEK. (From our City Correspondent.) A portion of the new French loan of £20,000,000 will, it appears, beTaised in this country. Messrs. Rothschild and Messrs. Baring have invited sub- scriptions in the new Four-and-a-'Half and in the Three per Cent, lientos. Up to the present time Alie amounts subscribed have been small ; but it is ¡understood that about £3,000,000 will be taken. The fact of subscription lists for a foreign loan having been opened has been enough ia itself to Jiave a depressing influence upon National Stocks; hence a very limited business' has been transacted in them this week, and the quotations have shown .a tendency to give way. The fall, however, has been trifling, considering the present state of our relations with Russia, and the prospect of a most .expensive war before us. There has been a steady, though by no means active demand for money. In the rates of discount no change has taken place, «wing...

The Hobarton Mercury. MONDAY MORNING, MARCH 26, 1855. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 26 March 1855

£íie ftob&vton Jttmurg* MONDAY MORNING, MARCH 20, 1855. THE ungenerous outcry against the em- ployment of foreign troops in the British army baa produced a very bad effect on the Continent. Though the Ministers have got their bill, it is uncertain whether thoy will get their men. ' Germans and Swiss, who have been designated as " cut- throats" and " assassins"-to say nothing of the milder epithets of " hirelings" and "¡mercenaries"-do not feel much disposed to offer their services to a country in which they are led to believe this is the prevalent opinion regarding them. This is unfortunate ; and more so, as the accu- sation brought against such men is as untimely as it is unjust. Is there a living Englishman, Scotchman, «or Irishman who would dare to say that the gallant Sir De Lacy Evans was, when he commanded the British Legion in Spain, a cut-throat, or a leader of cut-throats ?-an assassin-or a chief of assassins-or even a mercenary and a hireling ? We believe there is ...

.' LATEST EUROPEAN INTELLIGENCE. , Wo continue our extracts of the latest intelligence from the seat of war, &c, from our papers to the Cth of January. The Czares Preparations for 1655. The latest accounts from St. Peters- burg speak of the Emperor Nicholas as devoting himself with the most untiring activity to tho business of the Eussian War-office, in anticipation of hostilities with Austria. The Ministers, Ncssel roce, Dolgorouki, an»l Panin, have had a great deal to do. The former has had to abandon his favourite pleasure of playing at whist and hombre ; Dolgorouki is required to present every day an increase of the army ; and Panin to present a new register of voluntary donations. To make up the deficit resulting to the Treasury by the diminution of the duties onforoignimports, the Minister of Finance, M. de Brock, has had recourse to various expedients. The price of salt, for exam- ple, has been cousiderably increased in a great part of tho empire ; and a recent ukase ...

The Hobarton Mercury. WEDNESDAY MORNING, MARCH 28, 1855 [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 29 March 1855

Cue ggofckftptt fftcnuvu* WEDNESDAY MORNING, MARCH 28, 1855 The efforts of France and of England, as far as tliey have gone at present, can scarcely be said to be of a warlike cha- racter. With little uiore than our ordinary peace forces, we marched forth to confront the legion of the greatest military power of Europe in the Dobrudscba ; and we subsequently invaded a portion of his usurped territory, and defeated in battle the elite of his huge army. England, that had lived in peace with all Europe for nearly forty years, was not found power- less or defenceless when justice demanded her help, and wh en treachery threatened her peaceful interests and legitimate rights. As hostilities increased, and war developed itself in all its horrible cha- racters, our patriotism and generous sym- pathy were aroused, but -we made no exhi- bition of passion. We weighed all the heavy odds against us, and setjibout pre- paring to meet them like a cool and reasonable people. One year saw us with a p...

Millers fearing a fall, are indis- posed to buy but for what they can immediately consume, hence prices have given way a little.
