SOUTH AUSTRALIA[?] [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 16 April 1855

SOUTH AUSTRALIA WE have Adeliade journals to the 7th instant, from which wo make the follow- ing extracts : The news from the mines is still encou- raging ; all the pitches were let last week, and all hands commenced afresh on Mon- day morning. New hands are constantly being engaged 5 in all there are about 500 men at work. The weather this last week has been fine, though rather warm, aria vegetation is proceeding at a rapid rate. Perhaps, if we have not more rain soon, the great heat may injure the young shoots, but at preseut.it is very pleasant, and reminds us of the American descriptions of the Indian summer. lOur new Governor is said to have re- commended the home authorities to lega- lise the new constitution as sent home for one year, in order to carry it over the pre- sent exciting war time, and allow of its discussion at a more fitting opportunity. He may recommend it, but I should greatly doubt the probability of his advice being followed. ', These temporary experi- ments ...

Field's Heiress broke down, und Mr. Brown's Lucifer was withdrawn in the second heat ; a good sum changed hands on this race , The Consolation 'Stakes caine next, and -were won by Mr. Martin's Zaide, beating four others - by accident-the others bolting.

SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 16 April 1855

SYDNEY. WE have Sydney journals to tho 7th inst, but they contaiu little worthy ot notice. The Empire of the 7th saysc ' Though businoss has sustained much in- terruption from the long-continued ineîe mcBcy of the weather, the chief causes of present dulness are felt to be exclusively accidental. For some time past there has been a good demand for general supplies for the country ; and buyers for main arti- cles of consumption have been in the mar- ket from Port Phillip. We are just on the verge of winter, however, and severe stag- nation may be expected; but prices by reason of sinking sticks, if importations do not increase, are likely to improve, und a healthy trade, subject to the drawbacks belonging to the season, will be experien- ced. The rate of Exchange on London re- mains as Inst reported. The Banks buy at par, and sell at 1 per cent, for 30 days, and at par for 90 days. An arrival from San Francisco this even- ing, gives us the subjoined report of the markets of that city...

Coral ilrUiô CITY IMPROVEMENTS.-Scarcely a day passes but our attention is drawn to the wonderful and improved appearance of our fast rising town-mag- nificent buildings particularly for business purposes -appear suddenly like so many palaees conjured up by the wonderful lamp of Alladin, in every street. A notable instance and not the least start- ling in this respect wai, that of taking the public by surprise, of Messrs Sly and Risby on Saturday evening last, in opening their splendid new drapery establishment, in Liverpool-street, without the. slightest intimation of their intention.

&ommtvtinl $ntf Utrtiur*» Melbourne, Friday, April 13. The amount of gold on oiler is exceedingly small ; but there is no pressing demand at present, and the price, therefore, remains steady, at £$ leis, per ounce. Although many of the principal merchants still complain or the dullness of trade, there are abun- dant evidences of an improved market generally, throughout tha city. Tiic unusual fineness of the I weather, for the advanced period of the season, ' alford» great faoility for carriage to the diggings, and of this full advantage appears to be taken. Quotations, however, for most artiel«*, continue very steady, and even where an advance has been established, it is on a moderate scale. The flour trade continues steady at last week's quotations, with a brink demand, whieh our millers are now able to supply ; as the late high price of wheat ha« brought in large quantities from Fort Fairy and Launceston: in tact, the market is tem- porarily awamped with that article, and ...

THE PROGRESS OF THE WAR. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 18 April 1855

THE PROGRESS OF THE WAR. We received our files of English papers yesterday m orrong, but, though they éon tain a mass of details, we did not think there was anything iii them to justify us in publishing an extraordinary, or in dis- turbing the repose of the city with the shrill vociferation of our little missionaries, We remember the fable of the cry of " wolf," and we wish the public to have confidence in us that we will never trouble them with an " extraordinary," unless to have to communicate at least one " great fact," which every politician ought to be informed of at the earliest moment. The sum and substance of the news ia this,-that Sebastopol has not fallen, and peace is not concluded. Everything, how- ever, ia proceeding at the seat of war with the fiercest activity and the most obstinate perseverance. The French are ready on their side, and the English have nearly completed their third parallel. Three hundred pieces of artillery of the heaviest calibre, besides mortars and...
