ENGLISH MARKETS LONDON WOOL RERORT.—JUNE. 1861. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 17 August 1861

ENGLISH MARTvIÎTS LONDON WODI, RKROKT.-JUNE. 1SG1. The May-Juno sales olosed on the Gth 'Juno, with the samo'firmness and spirit manifested at the opening, and for good and fine flocks from all ports the competition was more keen towards the close, while on middle and faulty parcels the buyers had tho advantage. It is remarkable that, notwithstanding the dulness throughout the North, prices should have been fully supported to the average of February- j March ; but for this we are entirely indebted to the active competition and large purchases for conti- nental account. Tho number of bales taken by exporters, Is computed at fully 23,003 bales. Had prices depended entirely on home buyers, no doubt [ a declension would have taken place to the extent of 2d. to 3d. per lb., but ns the London market Is the focus for nil competition, tim largo quantity submitted attracting buyers from all parts of the '? world, the nrivontago Is at once apparent of so | central a market, and although our b...

Foreign Intelligence. Clouds are gathering over Austria. Dis- content increases from hour to hour hi Hungary, and it is thought necessary to concentrate largo masses of troops in Pcsth. The state of things in Poland is no better. The new reforms about which there have been such bravo liourishes in the journals turn out to bonierehhams. 'The exasperated people are moro inflamed than ever, and serious disturbances arc apprehended. The recognition of the kingdom of Italy by Franco has been officially aunounced in tin' Moniteur, and in the Italian Chambers of Deputies. France has declined a proposal made by Spain and Austria, that the Catholic European Powers should become the joint protectors of the Popo's temporal power. The Sultan of Turkey is dead, and lias been succeeded by his brother. Count Cavour died Juno (5th ; his death will be severely felt throughout Italy.

Civil War in America. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 17 August 1861

Civil War in America. American news to the 15th June has been received. The latest intelligence is of a more im- portant character than any that has yet been received since the commencement of the war. Tho Southern forces have, it appears, evacuated Harpur's Ferry in great liaste, after destroying all the government pro- perty they could, and carrying away with thom what was portable. They attempted, it is said, to break down the railway' bridge, but failed, whether through want of proper mateiinl, or because the Northern forces weie following closely in the retreat, is not reported. This retreat relieves the city of Washing, ton from the danger of attack on that side. Tho Southern troops aro only now in force directly south ol' the capital, and the last news is that the Confederates wero de- termined lo concentrate their forces nt Munassus Gap Junction. They have aban- doned the line of the Potomac, and have gime n little to tho S.W. of Alexandrin, from whence the road is open to R...

IPSWICH. (FROM OÜR OWN CORRESPONDENT ) FRIDAY (YESTERDAY)   WITH respect to Messrs. Heussler and Franck-   sen's explanation, I have only to say that I for one should never think of blaming them for cautioning their agents to act with due deliberation ; but that apparently there must have been some carelessness in explaining the probabilities of delay to the man who paid for the orders, for Mr. Abel does not stand alone, otherwise I should suppose it might be his carelessness. The Mayor has received a letter from the office of the Colonial Secretary in answer to tho application of tho Council for tho £0000, voted last year for Hie Bremer bridge, to be handed over to the corporation. Tho Colonial Secretary docs not positively state that the money has been placed to tho credit of the Ipswich corporation.

MARYBOROUGH. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) AUGUST, 15th, 1861. You seem to have had a very pretty scene in the Assembly on the occasion of the mu- nicipal petition anent the wharf being pre- sented. A great deal of virtuous indignation appears to have been vented, and an hon. member for North Biisbane seemed well-up in the matter of the alleged combination ; almost an accessory before the fact. But what are the facts ? So far as I know, the wharf was put up to public auction by the then Clerk of Petty Sessions, who was asked for information as to what repairs would have to be made by the lessee, as well as for other particulars connected with the wharf. He replied that he knew nothing of the matter ; that he was there simply with instructions to sell, and the only information he pos- sessed was contained in the Government Gazette, which intending purchasers could read for themselves. A request was made to postpone the sale for the purpose of getting information as to repairs, it bei...

Your readers will remember that tho congregation of the Scots' Church have for some time back had a singing class, con- ducted by Mr. Compton. On Thursday week something was discovered to be the matter with the harmonium, which bad been hired for tho uso of tho church. On exam- ining the wind chest some bits of paper wero found which had every appearance of being put there by design : they wero removed and the music got on pretty well that night, but on last Thursday the instrument was dumb, or very nearly so. The proprietor of the instrument wnnted to tnke it away. This however ho was not permitted to do. By immense exertion in blowing tho bellows a little sound wns got out. The conductor and the clergyman again examined tbo wind chest. This time it was nearly filled with sevoral handsfnl of bits of paper, which, on after examination, proved to ...

TO TUE PUBLIC OF QUEENSLAND. No. IV. FKIILOW COLONISTS,-The near approach of the day when the rival claims of the press and the Upper House will he brought for adjustment before a legal tribunal, deepens the prevalent interest in this memorable event. The wish is geueral that the settle- ment of this extraordinary dispute should be final, as the question involved is far too important for you to allow it to remain undecided, and I believe you are distinctly averse to anv opening having being left for the Upper House to disturb the public peace by any nonsensical motions for a now trial. Tn point of fact, this quarrel has been brew- ing a long time. Early in the session, the Lower House beeron to snarl and show its teeth, but wisely stopped at that, leaving the Upper House the honor of trying to bite ; BO that it is by no means a hastily got up affair. The ,alleee«l guilt bus been slowly accumulating, and now rises like a moun- tain, making it absolutely impossible for the nominees to...
