The first is from a kooper of a registry office, Mr. Arthur Martin, and as a part of his occupation is to rogistor tbo uuomploycd at a half-crown each ; if there vero no unem- ployed looking for situations, thoro would be no two and sixponnios for bim. Mr. Martin denies that thorc is a superabundance of labor in the colony,' and as I do not know the state of the labor market throughout the colony, I am not in a position to contradict him, but in Brisbane, where wo both reside, there is a superabundance of unskilled labour, and as a proof I refer him to the Mayor of Brisbane, or any other respectable omployor, as to whether thoybavc not daily applications from laboiers for employment. The next lettor is signed " An Employer," and I ask, if he is an omployor, why does...

Commercial Intelligence. FRIDAY EVENING. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 8 June 1861

Commercial Intelligence. FniDAY EVENING. .THE North Australian Annual Races, nud the detention of tho Sydney steamers, have caused an almost total cessation of business of every sort during the past week, and we have consequently very little to report. The news by the Yarra Yarra yosterday, has, how- ever, had a tendency to confirm some changes in the import market that wore looked fin1. Among these the most notable aro,-the con- tinued firmness of sugars, and the probability that they will not now recede before the re- ceipt of the first batch of this year's crop. . Salt also remains firm at a price that would tickle the ears of an English salt merchant, ^and will retain its prosent range till large importation» ease the market. Among the artielos that at present have a downward tendency, are flour and teas. The former of these is by no means firm at pre- sent quotations, mid a slight reduction for ' Sydney brands has nlrendy been submitted to. The market is fully supplied, and the...

There is, nevertheless, a steady under-current moving onward.
