Commercial Intelligence. HOBART TOWN MARKETS. Mcreury Ofice, Monday Afternoon. [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 3 July 1860

Commercial Intelligence. - - «HOART TOWN MARKETS. Mercury Office, Monday Afternoon. Next to nothing in doing in the grain market, business in fact being almost entirely suspended. Wheat is quoted as before, but there has been scarcely a sale effected throughout the day ; the same may also be said of oats and barley. The market is amply supplied with hay, which is still selling at £6 to £7 per ton according to quality. The news from the neighbouring colonies this morning has considerably depressed the potato market, and prices have experienced a further de- cline, and are now quoted at £6 to £6 10s. per ton with no demand. The flour market participates in the general   inactivity, and prices have an easier tendency.   Bran 1s. 6d. to 1s. 9d. per bushel. '

THE MERCURY. TUESDAY MORNING, JULY 3, 1860. [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 3 July 1860

THE MERCURY.   TUESDAY MORNING, JULY 3, 1860 The financial position of the Church of Eng-   land in this Colony is an anomaly almost amounting to a scandal. We cannot be surprised at the indisposition manifested by the twenty-nine colonial chaplains who constitute four-fifths of the episcopal protestant clergy- men in Tasmania, to exchange the security of the State for the security of the Synod, and surrender   salaries guaranteed to them by the public faith for   others contingent upon the state of the Sustentation Fund. It was made a matter of regret at one of the recent meetings, that the chaplains had bacome more unreasonable and uncompromising in their demands than they were twe years ago. Then, they were willing to let the Synod manage and admin- ister the general funds of the Chuch, and be them- selves chargeable on the funds so administered, rather than figure, as now, upon the Parliamen- tary Estimates. It seems their fait...

VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 3 July 1860

    VICTORIA. ------------ DIAMONDS IN VICTORIA.-Yet another diamond ! and, this time, of the purest water. Our descrip- tion of the large diamond recently found near Yackandandah has brought under our notice a smaller stone, found not long ago at Sandy Creek, near Jim Crow Diggings. This stone is, like the other, a perfect and unmistakeable diamond, and, unlike the other, it is untainted by colour, having all, or nearly all the brilliancy of the pure East Indian diamond. During the week a very large number of people have visited Mr. Crisp's, to in-   spect the large diamond including many members   of our community learned in precious stones, and we understand that no diversity of opinion exists among them as to the character of this crystal- by generall admission it is a diamond. It has also been submitted to His Excellency the Governor, for his inspection. It is now proved, therefore,   that Australia not only produ...

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 3 July 1860

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. ------------- By way of Melbourne, we have Adelaide papers to the 20th June.   A Bill "to Consolidate and amend the laws re-   lating to Real Property" had been sent down to the   Assembly by the Governor. The Register says :-   the new Act contains 139 clauses and 17 schedules,   and will, if only because of its length, require con-   siderable examination before any opinion on its   merits can be pronounced. Substantially, it is, of   course, identical with the existing Act, and we   trust we shall soon be able to show that it removes the difficulties winch have sprung up in the experi-   ence of the working of the system. In the mean- time we would direct attention to the following   passage, extracted from a paper on the transfer of land in South Australia, read by Mr. E. Webster, on the 20th February last, before the Law...

TWOFOLD DAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 3 July 1860

TWOFOLD DAY. By the Tasmania, we have Twofold Bay papera to the 29th. The Telegraph of that date reports , upon the markets as follows :- The season for the diggers may be said to have already set in, a tolerable instalment having arrived in the Rangatira on last Tuesday from Melbourne. We have no alteration to make in our last quo- tations. All kinds of building materials continue in great request. Furniture and bedding extremely scarce. Bullock and Horse Teams are most difficult to be had, although urgently required. There is a first rate opening for carriers to Kiandra. A few dairymen would do well here. Mr. William Prescott offered for sale on Tuesday last, for cash, a few town allotments in the upper part of Imlay-street, the property of Messrs. Polack ; they were, however, bought in at £200 each. Another allotment on the opposite side was purchased by Mr. Wright of Melbourne for £215, cash.

MUNICIPAL CORPORATION.     Monday, July 2.   There were present at the weekly meeting of the Council yesterday, the Right Worshipful the Mayor, and Messrs. Aldermen Stewart, Lewis, Butler, Rheuben and Murdoch. The changes of occupation were read and con- firmed. OLD MARKET WHARF IMPROVEMENT. The Committee to whom the plans and specifica- tions of the proposed improvement were submitted, recommended that the same be adopted, and that tenders for the performance of the works be invited, Alderman Rheuben remarking that the improve- ment was greatly needed, and that as a large re- venue was received from this wharf it was only just that the necessary alterations be made. He moved that the report be received and adopted. Alderman Murdoch seconded and expressed an opinion that the costs of the works would be re-paid by increased receipts from the market in a few years. Alderman Lewis thought this a most desirable time to proceed with the alterations ...

THE GREAT EASTERN. [TIMES.] [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 3 July 1860

THE GREAT EASTERN. [TIMES.]   The third generation of shareholders, if we may   so term those who have taken the preference shares in this undertaking, are about to use their best endeavours to at last render the Great Eastern really fit for sea. During the "winter of their   discontent" the most extravagant stories were in circulation as to the total unfitness of the vessel for ocean navigation of any kind. According to these, the whole ship, from keel to track, had something wrong with it; decks, hull, engines, and cabins either required repair, or were in such a miserable state of dilapidation as to be beyond it. When to these fears were added the well-known deficiencies, of some of the fittings under the late contracts, and the notorious disunion of the late board of directors, it will need little else to explain the hopeless state of despondency with which the Great Eastern was regarded. A failure was pre- dicted which would involve as tot...

The opening of the second session of the second colonial Parliament took place on the 27th in the state-room of Government House.

Lieuteuant-Govemor Wynyard took his seat on the throne, surrounded by the principal exe- cutive, naval, and military officers. The speech read by his Excellency was of more than ordinary length, and embraced a compre- hensive review of the past history of the colony, with a glance at its future prospects. It opened with a reference to the early expected return of Sir Georgo Grey and a congratula- tory notice of the progress made by the colony during the year 1859, notwiths...

They differed, only as to the modus ope- randi. The two Houses had precisely the same full   and co-ordinate power, with the exception that   the Council was prohibited by statute from initiat-   ing money bills. The Council had not act...
