A remarkable instance of presence of mind on? the part of the captain of a man of war is related by the St. Petersburg papers. About the end of last month the Russian war frigate Olaf, which had accompanied the yacht of the Czarewkch to Copenhagen, was lying at anchor among hundreds of other ships in the harbour, when a fire was discovered in a coal-cellar below, which was only a few feet from the powder magazine. There was no time to put out the fire before ft eonld reach the magazine, and an explosion of the large store of cartridges and gunpowder contained in it would probably have destroyed, not only the Olaf and the surrounding ships, but part of Copenhagen itself. Captain RebbJnder, the com mander of the Olaf, saw at once the only thing to be done to prevent a catastrophe was to sink the 6hip. After sending away the crew, withi the ship's papers, cash-boxes, and most valuable instruments, he ordered the carpenters and engineers to make a leak in the vessel, and half an hour af...

ftc $5ttn*ofoa ifckJ SATURDAY, NOVEMBEB 27th, 187fc. The Statistical Register for the year 1874 lias at last , made its appearance, and, we regret to say, 'with bat little improvement ou the former volumes. Gratifying as are the proofs of the progress of New South Wales contained in its pages, the same want of care and abundance of mystification which have hitherto disfigured these annual returns may be traced throughout the book, and are discred itable alike to the Government under which the work is published, and to the statist to whom its compilation has been entrusted. In the present volume, for the first time .since 1871, the export of the staple product of the colony (Wool) is recorded ; and the returns show that no less than 75,156,924 lbs. of wool were exported from New South 'Wales during 1874, of which 39,679,961 lbs. were despatched via Melbourne and Adelaide, thus increasing the trade and swelling the profits of the merchants in rival colonies by a trade which (export an...

EDWIN HOLT AND CO'S WOOL REPORT. [Newspaper Article] — The Burrowa News — 4 December 1875
EDWIN HOLT AND CO'S WOOL REPORT. The attendance of buyers has been somewhat irregular and less numerous than was expected, and cyfreme caution has characterised (he bid dings throughout both the home and foreign trades, all being evidently determined to purchase only to the extent of their actual requirements, owing, no doubt, to the general quietness of business both at home and abroad. Taking? these causes into account, coupled with the large weight of produce offering, the prices obtained cannot lie regarded as very unsatisfactory to the growers, and making a comparison with May June series, due regard should be taken of the greater proportion of less desirable classes of ?wools now brought forward. Port Phillip have been mostly of the middle and lower grades of fleeces and faulty scoureds, which have fehown a decline of 2d. per lb., but the belter classes not quite so much. Pieces have suffered the least, and lambs have sold irregularly. Sydney have been plentiful, mostly of the...

WOOL REPORTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Burrowa News — 4 December 1875
WOOL REPORTS. Mort & Co.— Wool : We had a good attendance of, buyers at our sale, on Wednesday, when we submitted a catalogue of 1450 bales, but owing to the excessive reserves in some cases placed by growers, we were reluctantly compelled to with draw a number of considerable lots, which had a prejudicial effect on the competition for subse quent parcels. There seems, however, every disposition on the part of buyers to do business at rates affording anything like a reasonable margin for risk and expense of shipment ; and when owners are prepared to meet the market, business will be done more freely, although, both sellers and buyers are naturally anxious to hear something of the London sales now current, but which the interruption of communication per cable interferes with. The range of prices this week was : — Washed fleece, 15Jd. to 20f d. ; greasy, 9d. to lljd. ; and scoured, 17d. to 20|d. per lb. J.
