COMMERCIAL. [Newspaper Article] — Auckland Star — 4 March 1874
COMMERCIAL. At the several commercial sales in the city to-day scarcely any goods were sold. Bidding both at Mr. Sibbin3's and Mr. Binney'» was spiritless, and the majority of lots were withdrawn and reserved for a future day. The market presented a remarkably quiet appearance to-day—most of the stores being closed. Were it not not for some half-dozen storekeepers the market would be a dead letter. We notice that the olosed stores are offered at a low rental for storing goods, etc., by the Inspector.

The Evening Star: WITH WHICH ARE INCORPORATED The Evening News and the Morning News WEDNESDAY, MARCH 4, 1874. For the cause that lacks assistance, For the wrong that needs resistance, For the future in the distance, And tli a cood that we cau do In the arrival of the &quot;Tartar&quot; with the first English and American mails we may recognise the actual existence of the new trans-Pacific service. Hope deferred has made the heart sick, and it would be nauseous to launch out, in eulogy of the &quot;countless isles&quot; that &quot;gem the surface of the Pacific,' or to get on the back of the American eagle that perches on the rocky mountains and covers all creation with his wings. We feel prosey, because we were too gush ing before, but we rejoice none the less in the presence on our waters of a class of steamer that, in its shipshape appearance, has more of hope for us than the great uncouth side-wheelers that used to come lumbering up the har...
Untitled [Newspaper Article] — Auckland Star — 4 March 1874
The signing of the postal contract of the new American and Australasian mail service was signalised in New York by an incident that is deserving of more than a passing notice. As the rejoicing of all England's sons and grandchildren is inseparably associated with feeding, a banquet was of course necessary. But while on this side the Pacific we should have got up a beggarly subscription ist, one gentleman, Mr ft. W. Cameron, a merchant engaged in the Australian trade, invited the most brilliant assemblage of notables that could be collected from the ranks of commerce, .politics and society, and celebrated the event in such a fashion that we find it said &quot; The dinner was one of the most sumptuous ever prepared •yen by Delmonico. We would direct marked attention to a statement in our telegraphic intelligence from Napier. It tells of an outcry at Poverty Bay on the discovery that the Gisborne town sections had been sold piivately by the Government during the Superintendent'...

Ha)l, the general agent and business manager of the company arrived overland from the Ecst. Mr Hall expresses the utmost confidence in the success of the enterprise.
