Markets. GRAIN AND FLOUR MARKET. NEW SOUTH WALES. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 28 November 1855
gjftarhits. GBAIN AND FLOUR MARKET. NEW SOUTH WALES. The latest market reports are those of the 1st Seat, from which we extract the following: — The Mills. — Messrs. Barker & Co.: The recent imoortations of breadstuff's and further «Tiinm»nts looked for have operated to cause a reduction of 10/. per ton in the mill price of flour since last report Fine flour is now quoted at 30L. and second quality at ill per ton of 2,000 lbs. Chilian and Valparaiso wheat has been sold during the week at 9s 6d to 10s per bushel. Bran, 3s per busheL Mr. Breillat: — Owing to the large importa tions of both wheat and flour -lately received, a considerable decline in price has taken place Wheat has been purchased in large quantities at about 10s per bushel, and flour is now reduced at the mills to 30L per ton for fine, and 28Z. for seconds. Bran continues at about 3s per bushel. Messrs. Forlong and Kennedy, — There is no colonial wheat in the market, but the large im portations of foreign have b...
SOUTH AUSTRALIA. MERCANTILE REPORT. Thursday evening. September 20, 1855. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 28 November 1855
SOUTH AUSTRALIA. MERCANTILE EEPORT. Thursday evenina. September 20, 1855. The. elections have for the most part occupied the place of general busiuess this week, and for the last two days more especially the town has worn the ap pearance of a general holiday. The Burra Burra s arrival on Tuesday, with news from. Melbourne to the 15th and Sydney to the 12th instant, shows a firm tone in the flour markets there, and an advance in price. From this intelligence, coupled with the scarcity of flour here, most holders now want £45 per ton for fine, and whilst the trade is so barely supplied, it is difficult to say if a further advance will not be estab lished beyond this figure. Prime Irish oats have been sold at 5s 6d per busheL We have no change to report in barley or bran. Wheat cannot be quoted with accuracy, the quantity reaching town being in sufficient to establish a quotation upon. A cargo of Mauritius sugar has arrived by the Swallow, which is to be snbmittcd to public auction on ...

TASMANIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 28 November 1855
TASMANIA. Hobakt Tows, Sept 14. — The grain market has taken a considerable decline, owing to the recent im portations from South America, and a further decline is confidentlv looked for. In addition to the Fingal and Lalla Rookh, other vessels are expected with breadstutfs and the conse quence is that the trade is exceedingly dull, and that purchasers bny only for necessary consumption. Wheat may be quoted at 10s., and flonr at t*43. A smal! parcel of excellent sample was oftered yester day at 14s., but declined, the miller having a suffi cient stock on hand. Potatoes have also declined, and may now be pur chased at £14 per ton, the Slirnosa having brought a large quantity from Sorell and its neighbourhood. This vessel has likewise brought a considerable quan tity of wheat for this market. So far, then, as bread stvffs are concerned, there is every prospect of a reasonable price, which is yet the more probable from the genial rain, which has fallen to -improve the crops.

EUROPEAN INTELLIGENCE to July 20. The Observer of 8tii and i6th July, and European Times of July 20th having been kindly placed at our disposal, we are en abled to present our readers with a detail of events at Sebastopol, from the memorable lSth of June to the period embraced by the summary of the Home JVews, 4th Aug. Details of the Siege of Sebastopol. THE ATTACK ON MALAKOFF. June, 20. — The plan of attack originally proposed was that the allies were to open a cannonade for three hours on the Malakoff and Eedan after dawn on the morning of the 18th; that the French were to assault the Malakoff, and that when they had gained possession of it we were to attack ihe Kedan. As the latter work is commanded by the former, it would not be possible to carry or to hold it till the Malakoff was taken. The manner of our attack was as follows: — The senior brigades of the Light -*-ivUioa, Se*oi^i ?!-? visiou. Third Divi«-n,-Eard~iro3ntli Division were to fornisii each one column of 1,750 men, ...
EUROPEAN NEWS, SIX DAYS LATER. France. Paris, Thursday, Aug. 2, 6 p.m. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 28 November 1855
EUROPEAN NEWS, SIX DAYS 1ATSR. The South Australian Register of the 2-th Oct., has been kindly forwarded to as, which contains European News* to 10th August brought by the Ariel from Batavia. The following are the principal items: — ' France. f_From the Times correspondent.] Paris, Thursday, Aug. 2, 6 p.m. The fact I' announced yesterday of the departnre of General Letang for Vienna is confirmed. He leaves Paris this evening. The reason I assigned for this jonrncy is also continued; it is in conse quence of a communication received from the Empe ror of Austria addressed to the Emperor of the French, and following close on the letter which was addressed by the Empress Dowager of Russia to the Archduchess Sophia. It is, of course, difficult to ascertain the contents of a private communication addressed by one Emperor to another, but there are certain indications which lead one to suppose that they refer to propositions contained in the letter to the' Archduchess. It is believed that t...
The Inquirer & Commercial News. WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 28, 1855. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 28 November 1855
Quidvertanatqueclecens, curoetrogo, et omnisinhoc sum WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 28, 1855. The recent news from England cannot be considered satisfactory as regards the rees tablishment of steam communication with the Australian Colonies. There does not appear much prospect of the immediate re currence of regular postal intercourse by means of steam vessels between the mother country and ourselves, or even any of our neighbours. This cannot be said to arise from any un willingness on the part of the Home Go vernment to comply with the requests of the Australian settlements, for they have continually expressed their opinion that these requests are founded in reason, and their desire to meet the views of the requi sitiomsts. The failure of all attempts to restore to us the advantages resulting from steam postal communication must, we fear, be attributable to the Colonists themselves. They have it is true been all unanimous that steam postal communication was necessary to their welfare, but t...
