SOUTH AUSTRALIA. MERCANTILE REPORT. Thursday evening, September 13, 1855. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 31 October 1855

SOUTH AUSTRALIA.. MERCANTILE REPORT. Thursday evening, September 13, 1855 There are no special features of interest to notice in general business this week, except a farther advance in the price of flour, owing to its jcarcity. It has been sold in quantity at £40,and £42 is now demanded for further sales ; but the aspect of the market is crit ical, owing to the expected arrival of foreign wheat and flour. This L anticipation prevents millers from purchosng any quantity of wheat, and what comes for ward is unwillingly bought at anything over the last quotations. Labour continues plentiful. The late arrivals of sugar have met with a ready sale at auction, though, hi some descriptions, at lower prices at last sales. The rice ex Robertina, from Batavia, has been partly sold at £15 per ton. The shipping list includes the Switzerland, from Liverpool, and the Thomas Arbutlmot, from Ply mouth, both with emigrants, the Robertina, from Batavia, besides sundry vessels from Sydney and other col...

Chilian and Valparaiso wheat has been sold during the week at 9s 6d to 10s per bushel.

LATEST EUROPEAN INTELLIGENCE. THE BI-MONTHLY MAILS TO AUSTRALIA. We have elsewhere announced the esta blishment of two lines of packet service be tween England and Australia, and the days of departure to the close of the present year. To that announcement we may here add, that the arrangements entered into are of a kind to afford the strongest assurance that this service will be carried out with the uunosc aespaicu ana emcieucy. The obstructions that have hitherto in terrupted the trade aad intercourse wilh the colonies ana well-known. Nearly the whole of our colonial and other mail arrangements have been, more or less disturbed by the war; the regular Australian mails having been al together withdrawn, and the overland route abandoned by the Peninsular Company.

TASMANIA. Hobabt Town, August 27. Wheat is again .dearer, and, 17s 9d. up to 18s has been paid for mil ling. Potatoes are more) in demand, and arc firm at 20L per ton. Barley and oats are dnll of sale. Lauhceston, August 15 th. There has been a general dulness during the week. The advices from Melbourne and Sydney mention further ar rivals from foreign ports of wheat, flour, and oats, which have caused a further decline in each article, and as it is impossible to foresee where this may cease, parties here will only buy to supply im mediate wants. Wheat is very scarce, but as the mills cannot sell their flour, they do not press holders. The price is nominal, from 12s 6d to 14s. Fine Hoar has been sold at 40i, but the bakers are alone buyers. The stock is very much dimi nished. We note a return parcel from Sydney of 17 tons. — Examiner.

The Post Office. {From die Illustrated London News.) There is, at all events, one branch of the public service in which the demand for Administrative Reform has beeu anticipated, and where the right man will be found in the right place — iu the person of Mr Roland Kill, the Secretary to the Post-office. When I say that he is exactly iu the right place, I am not sure that I am doing Mm full justice, fl-r I know no reason why he sliuuid not be at the very head of that department, to which he has rendered the most signal services. It is customary to make the office of Postmaster-General a political post, but there seems to be no reason why the man who has shown the highest ability in the management of the department should not be at the top of it Unless Lord Canning is an abler man than Mr Rowland Hill, why should the former occupy the place of Postmaster-General, while the latter acts as Secre tary? and why, in tact, should it always be thought necessary to have a gilt top to the stai...

At the time of our insertion of this letter, we were little aware either of the distinct faets to which it refers, or of the magnitude of the principles it involves, but subsequent e nquiries have convinced us that it relates to a subject of the deepest importance to the colony, and to one on which we mu...
