COTTON. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 8 October 1856
COTTON. (From the New York Weekly Tribune, April 12.J Contemporaneously with die advance of cotton to the position of a leading article in the commerce of die world — the increase of its production in the last century, so far as it enters into that commerce, hav ing been almost exclusively confined to our South ern States — has been die growth of the pretensions of those who produce it, and their claim to an exclu sive control of the policy of the country in accordance with their peculiar views. Nor hate we of the Northern States of the Union been the sole sufferers by this insolence. The English, as die great con sumers of cotton, have been not a little annoyed by the pretensions of our cotton-growers to regulate die market and fix prices to sait themselves; and it is well known that they have made earnest efforts in the last few years to encourage end improve the growth of cotton in India, where it has been raised in large quantities from time immemorial for home use, whence very ...

Quid cerum atque deceits, euro et rogo, et omuls in hoc sum WEDiNESDAT, OCTOBER 8, 1856. The meeting of Council on Friday is con vened specially for the purpose of taking into consideration, and finally passing into law, two Bills prepared by the Crown So licitor, having for their object the enlarge ment of remedies of creditors against the persons of their debtors, and the relief of insolvent persons, with provision for tha collection, administration, and distribution of their estates, and for the prevention of frauds affecting the same. It will he recol lected that two Bills, professing to attain the same objects, were introduced last ses sion, but withdrawn in consequence of the divided state of public opinion with respect to the necessity of such a measure, and also with reference to the details of the bills, but more especially in consequence of their tc cognizing the principle of imprisonment for debt.

Proposed Settlement in Northern Australia. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 8 October 1856
Proposed Settlement in Northern Australia. (From the Shipping and Mercantile Gazette.') The Lords of the Treasury having, after mature de liberation, given the preference to the Eastern route to Australia via Singapore, it becomes highly im portant to bare some British settlement on the Northern shores of the Australian Continent As. however, little encouragement can be expected from the Government towards such a project, both by reason of its present monetary wants and engrossing attention to home matters, and in consequence of the anti-colonisation views entertained, the matter must necessarily be taken up and prosecuted to a success ful issue by the merchants themselves. The nation al and commercial importance of such a measure has been over and over again urged in onr columns, and it has frequently received a degree of earnest and partial attention. But other and more engross ing matters have generally driven it out of notice. Viewed in its importance nnder a scientific point of...

Mai-tots. SOUTH AUSTRALIA. 1DELAIDE MERCANTILE REPORT. Friday eveninc. Aninist 22. 1856. Owing to the absence of any late intelligence from the neighbouring colonies during die week, the trans actions in flour were limited, though the tone of the market was verr firm. Yesterday and to-day, since receipt of the English and colonial news per White Swan, a very brisk business has been done, and an advance of fnlly £ 1 per ton established. The late rains have prevented wheat coming in in quantity since last Saturday; but as the weather im proves it is expected to come steadily forward. The improvement in the price of flour has occasioned a corresponding action in. wheat, and good milling samples may be quoted at 9s 6d per busheL Barley and oats remain much the same. Trade in English goods is dull, and sales are slow, The arrivals this mail have been considerable, but as a great number of die goods are come on indent and as die spring trade is at hand, they are not pressed upon die marke...

VALPARAISO. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 8 October 1856
VALPARAISO; - We have been favoured, safs the Melbourne ' Argus,'' with the eight of additional commercial advices from die Weat Coast of America, all of which confirm the accounts of. tbe scarcity of wheat at Chilian ports in ApriL The following extracts, however, give promise of shipments at a later period of tbe year t — Valparaiso, April 3, 1856. ' Daring March we had ten days of rain — most unusual thing in Chili — and large parcels of outlying wheat have been destroyed. 4 to 5 dol lars per 155 lbs. are asked tor sound wheat, and millers only buy for immediate wants; and in die absence of stocks of flour is worth 12 dollars 50c cash per ton quintals, and some weeks may pass, without any material decline. We tiaink 'that later on, say August forward, onr stocks should admit of liberal exports at about 0 to 10 dollar^ say per two quintals.'

TASMANIA. August 16, 1856. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 8 October 1856
TASMANIA. August 16, 1856. Flour is still nominally quoted at £24 per ton but it is difficult to say how much under that amount the article can be bought in quantity. Probably we shall receive advices by the ' Black Swan ' to day, which will give merchants and millers some thing definite to base their future transactions upon, tor at present all their information is uncertain, and the most Eangnine private advices- from Mel bourne recommend extreme caution in this market. Wheat was sold yesterday at from 8s 6d to 9s 3d, according to quality. One of die millers has ceased purchasing wheat, but declines to sell flour under £25 per ton. Launcfston, 16th August. — The additional in formation brought to hand by die ' Black Swan ' has had the effect of making (he highest prices of flour quoted in our last issue firmer. Holders are less disposed to sell, and unless considerable quantities of breasJstofls arrive from Chili to reduce tbe price at Sydney, diere is no doubt feut flour will adv...
