COMMERCIAL REMARKS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 7 September 1844
COMMERCIAL REMARKS. The business of the town for the last fortnight has been dull, partly owing to the weather perhaps, but more to this time of the year being always duller than the rest. As boiling down has a good deal fallen off lately, from the tendency to a rise in both sheep and cattle, and as it Avili be some time before the wool season commences, it is probable this dullness will continue for about six weeks. Sugar and tea are both rising, and sugar is reported to be likely to rise much higher. We hear of no transactions in either tallow, hides, pelts, or tobacco. Very little wheat or maize has been brought in ; one parcel of middling wheat Avas sold at 2s, but the greater part went on to Sydney, prices there being a shade higher than here, after deducting expenses. The supply of vegetables is but moderate, and of middling quality. Fruit is confined to three kinds, oranges, lemons, and Ioquats.

The judgment of the court was to be given on the 25th May, and it was understood it would be unfavorable to a new trial, except as to the Rev. Mr. Tierney, and that motions in arrest of judgment would immediately be made. Several motions for returns connected with the trials had been made in the House of Commons, and great complaints were making by the movers of the delay in furnishing them. Capitalists, it was said, were feeling more confident as to the state of Ireland, and were ready to invest large sums in specu- lations in that country. The Bill for the abolition of the duty on Foreign Wool had passed through committee, after considerable opposition. Mr. G. W. Hope had obtained leave to bring in a Bill to explain the Act for the Government of New South Wales and Van Diemen's Land. The Bank Charte...
