THE VICTORIAN GRAIN STATISTICS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 23 March 1889

THE VICTORIAN GRAIN STATISTICS. A» the agricultural statistics of the various colonies are published, the evidences of the disastrous effects produced by the recent drought) throughout Australia mul tiply. The miserable results of the wheat cropB in New South Wales have already been commented on by us, and the returns which have been published show that the senior colony has had the worst crop re corded for the past 40 years. Victoria, too, has a somewhat similar tale to tell ; and it may be a little consoling to our own farmers to know that they are not alone in their misfortunes.

There is no marked improvement to note in this market, purchasers testing as much as possible in retail parcels only ; but in two or three lines a better business has been done than of late, and a good general downfall o! rain would undoubtedly put more heart into the mercantile community. In sugars nothing special has taken place, though the market iB very firm indeed, and there is every probability of an advance in values. At the auction sale. of Mauritius sugars in Melbourne this week we note that good whites realised £24 10a. per ton ; there was a brisk demand at an ad vance of 8s. to 10s. per ton (color for eoler) on previous auction rates. London cable ad viceB received here this week report that sugars are Is. 6d. per cwfc dearer there. Locally about 1,000 packages rations (which are now out «£? first hands) have been quitted; otherwise no business is mentioned. Teas very...
