SYDNEY MARKETS.—FRIDAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Morning Herald — 8 October 1842

I SYDNEY MARKETS.-Friday. I I Wheat.-There have only been five loads I brought to market during the week, which ? brought from Os. to ös. (id. at the Mills. Of the forthcoming crop on the limiter, we ' regret that the accounts are of a ve y un- favourable nature; while on the Hawkes- bury, if this weather should continue, much longer, we fear the crops must likewise suffer. Flour.-In this market business to (he usual extent has been done, and several offers made for exportation during all this month. The Millers are firm with every prospect of remaining so.

THE BLOW STRUCK. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Morning Herald — 8 October 1842

THE BLOW STRUCK. Since the "foregoing article was written, we have received a copy of Lord Stanley's Land Bill, as received from the Commons by the House of Lords. It confirms all our worst fears. The upset price of land is never to be less than One Pound per acre ! It may be raised beyond that, but even Her Majesty iu her Privy Council is deprived of all power to reduce it. There is, to be sure, a sort of discretionary reduction reserved to Uhr Majesty ; but it is a very curious sort. If the Gover- nor shall have raised the upset price higher than twenty shillings an acre, and such advance shall subsequently be dis- allowed by Her Majesty in Council, Her Majesty may then order the price to be reduced, either to the original twenty shilling standard, or to any intermediate s im ; and the Governor is thereupon to mike compensation to all persons who may have purchased at the disallowed price, such compensation being either a refnttdin«; of the amount paid in excess, or an allowance o...

FOSSIL BONES. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Morning Herald — 8 October 1842

FOSSIL BONES. This subject has been very recently brought into notice, in Australasia, by the discovery of several examples of a highly interesting character, and as it is one of some importance to the physical history of this part of the world, it merits considera- tion from those who are desirous of developing the features of that history, and of extending the bounds of know- ledge. Under these circumstances, it is in- tended in this and a subsequent number, to offer a few concise remarks upon those recent discoveries, and the general im- portance of the question connected with them. The researches of Sir T. L. Mitchell, long ago, made known, that the limestone of Wellington Valley, Boree, and Molong, contains caverns, in which are deposited, together with mud and stalagmite,* the bones of several animals, some of them of the same genera, but not of the same species, as those which now exist in Aus- tralia. According to Mr. Pentland, the bones which were forwarded to Paris, and we...

MACQUARIE WARD. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Morning Herald — 8 October 1842

MACQUARIE WARD.   Mr. Alderman Brenan, and Assessors Potts and O'Reilly met again yesterday at the Royal Hotel, pursuant to adjournment. Mr. Maher again appeared, to object to the enrolment of Mr. Duncan, editor of the Australasian Chronicle, on the ground that Mr. Duncan was in receipt of a salary from the shareholders of the Australasian Chroni- icle and had no more right to a vote for the premises in George-street than any other   servant employed on the establishment. The COURT maintained its former decision, on the ground that Mr. Duncan had estab- lished his claim as a shareholder in the Chronicle. This was the only case brought forward, and the Court went through the remainder of the alphabetical lists of citizens for the ward.

Gannon, are fit and proper persons to represent this ward in the City Council." Mr. Ewen seconded the motion. Mr. Fairfax proposed as an ammendment to the motion, "That this meeting is of opinion that Dr. Nicholson, H. Moore, Esq., Mr. John Jones, and Mr. James Chapman, are fit and proper persons to represent this Ward, as   Common Councillors, under the Municipal Act, and strongly recommend the citizens generally to vote for and support them on the day of election."

Undkr this head there appears in tlic Wceldy Dispatch, of the 29th of May, n scries of letters from the mechanics and labourers of Sydney, containing a number of most exaggerated statements respecting the state of the labouring population of this colony. To show how inconsistent the statements arc, wc moy remark, that it is asserted, that the rent of two rooms in Sydney is £\ 5s. per week, and yet the very same persons who sent home these letters signed the Petition to the Legislative Council, a few weeks since, declaring that were the franchise under the Municipal Act kept nt £40 a-yenr, (fifteen shillings n-weck) they would not have a vote. Such exaggerated statements always defeat the objects of the persons making them, and therefore wc look with perfect unconcern upon the publication of these letters, so far as the future...

POST OFFICE [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Morning Herald — 10 October 1842

TOST OFFICE Arrangements arc being made nt the Post Oificc fur increasing the frequency of the overland communication between Melbourne and Sydney, by running the whole distance in a week, so fis to make the return of post between Sydney mid Melbourne- only a fortnight ; which we need hardly say will be a very great con- venience, and now that it is settled that Port Phillip shall remain an integral portion of this colony, it i« of importance that there should be every facility afforded for frequent communication bet.vcen Melbourne aud Sydney. It is in contem- plation also to run an overland mail from Sydney via Melbourne to Adelaide, a proposition to that effect having been made by Governor Grey. The state of the roads renders very quick travelling in this colony almost impossible j but we are glad to sec a détermination to increase the speed of the mails as much as possible.

CAPE OF GOOD HOPE. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Morning Herald — 10 October 1842

CAPE OF GOOD IIOPE. Cave papers to the 28th July, came to hand on Saturday. They are filled with objections to the proposed conversion of llobbcn Island into a penal settlement, to which juvenile offenders are to be trans- ported from England, and discussions on the state of affairs at Natal. Intelligence had been received from Natal to the -beginning of July. It will be remembered, that when our last accounts were received, the rebels had seized a depot of provisions which Captain Smith had established at the Bay, and thus cut off.all communication between him atid the schooner which had been sent from Cape Town with supplies. So soon as this was done, Captain Smith called in nil his out-parties and fortified his position in the best wa}' thnt he could. The rebels then regularly invested the c, nn, keeping up au almost continual fire of musketry, and firing upwards of one hundred balls a-day from a six- nder, which they had found in the depot. Nearly three weeks was Captain Smith i...
