MISCELLANEOUS SHIPPING. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 15 April 1857

MISCELLANEOUS SHIPPING. A great deal of anxiety has been felt concerning the fate of the Eclair, a little schooner of about 30 tons, which left here on the 17th of January, bound for Port Cooper, having on board Mr. and Mrs. Mills, and 5 children, and Mr. Sykes. Our Shipping Reporter has endeavoured by every means, to trace the report to some reliable source, without success. There are no grounds whatever, so far as we can discover, for any apprehension on the part of the many friends of Mr. Mills. It is too bad that such statements should be circulated without foundation. WRECK OP THE WILLIAM DENNY, STEAMER.

COMMERCIAL INTELLIGENCE LAUNCESTON, APRIL 15TH, 1857. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 17 April 1857

COMMERCIAL INTELLIGENCE LAUNCESTON, APRIL 15TH, 1857. North and South America are again pouring in supplies of Bi eadstufls at Melbourne and Sydney, there is consequently no prospect of any advance in the Flour and Grain merket here this season. The stock in these colonies is far in excess of any probable demand, even without the supplies which will keep coming in from New York, San Fran- cisco, Talcahuano, Valparaiso, &c. Our prices are a shade lower than last week, Flour £13 10s to £14 per ton. Wheat not in demand at 6J to 6s 3d, and Oats 6s 6d to 7s per bushel, the latter price for prime seed oats only, 63 61 being the average for feed ditio. Potatoes come very slowly to market, but the demand at present is merely for home con- sumption, and the price is rather on the decline, growers on the North Coast and at Circular Head are holding back in expectation of higher prices, but if the supplies from N. S. Wales and New Zea- land he as extensive as expected at Melbourne, pri...

THEATRE ROYAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 17 April 1857

THEATEE BOYAL. The Splendid romantic drama entitled the Corsicau Brothers was produced again at the Theatre Koyal last evening. The whole of tho machinery Ac deems now to be in perfect order, and thb Wonderful effects produced on tire tftage are such as we certainly never expected to witness in this Colony. Each night of its repitition it has elicited from the audience tbo most unbounded applause, and deservedly so j for we have no recollection of ever having been so surprised aud startled, or of experiencing greater delight -enhauced by that surprise-than on witnessing this most effective and gorgeous drama. We perceive that it is to be produced this eveniug for the last time. The expense natu- rally attending the " getting up" of so bril- liant and, mechanically, complox a piece as tho Corsicau Brothers, will, we fear, render the chance of wituessing such another piece et least, for some time to come, a matter of very grave doubt.
