COUNTRY MARKETS. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 26 January 1865

COUNTRY MARKETS. DAYLESFORD.-Flour is from £26 to £27 per ton. Produce is coming in slowly. Oats are 4s to 4a 6d per bushel; bran, 2s; pollard none ; hay £5 per ton ; pota toes, 10s per cwt.-Express. CASTLEMAINE.-Commercial circles are much dis turbed sines the delivery of the financial statement. The imposition of new duties has raised np a host of assailants to protest against the tariff. Business in the meantime suffers during the uncertain issue being dis cussed. Flour mointaitia its price, and from shortness of stocks it is firmly held at quotations. Potatoes have improved, and an extra price is asked by the farmer, on account of the continued drought. New oats come but sparingly forward; for prime samples 4s have boen readily given, and 3s 9d for inferior. Onions are more plentiful ; they bring from 11s to 11s 6d. Quicksilver has not been in much demand; the price has receded 6d although the stocks are not heavy.-M. A. Mail, 24th January.

fk ffaítot MM. : DAILY ISSUE. THURSDAY, 26IH JANUARY, 1865. j j WITH a popular clamor for protection, as an infallible remedy for all the ills, social, com I mercial and political, that afflict the colony, or are supposed or alleged to afflict the co lony-with a Legislature composed in great 1 part of men pledged to protection without knowing in the very slightest degree what pro tection means, or what has been its effects in i other countries-and with a Government so ignorant as to believe that protection might possibly be of service to the country, and so weak and time-serving as to yield to the po pular demand on that bare possibility, there is some danger that despite all that can be urged against such a course a protection po licy will be adopted. But if such a calamity is really to befall ' this country, of which tUl last Thursday the prospects seemed so hopeful, the Legislature will not have brought it upon us without timely and sufficient warning.
