Latest British Intelligence. [DOWN TO JULY 30.] [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 4 December 1829

Latest British Intelligence. [DOWN TO JULY 30.]   An additional article has been annexed to the Treaty of Peace, concluded to the intervention of England between Brazil and Buenos Ayres, by which the two contract- ing parties agree that the navigation up the River La Plata shall be free to the subjects of both partites. The Republic of Buenos Ayres engages to allow Brazilian ships to ascend       the River ; therefore the same permission must be given to   English ships, according to the Convention concluded six years ago with the English Government. Hamburg Papers state, that the Russians have succeeded in passing the Balkan. This is the Rubicon, beyond which it v.as asser'ed, ;ome time/S-.iice, by one or twoof ourcotiteinporaries,tii.uy wouldnot venture to pass,r-for,thn> cam- paign, at least.

The Currency of Sydney. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 4 December 1829

The Currency of Sydney. THE CURRENCY.—The meeting held last night at the         Canning Tavern, for the purpose of coming to some under- standing as to the prices at which dollars and rupees shall be circulated in retail trade, was held at too late an hour to ad- mit of our giving a circumstantial report this morning, (Nov. 24th). It was agreed that the dollar should he taken at 4s.   2d. sterling, the dump at 1s. 0½d. and the rupee at 1s. 9d.—   The grossest impositions have been practised upon the poor, within the last few days, by the petty retail dealers, who, taking advantage of the unsettled state of the currency silver, have greatly reduced the price without reducing that of their goods, and even refused to take sterling coin at its former re- lative rate in currency transactions. Such conduct is down- right extortion, and ought to be stoutly resisted by the poor, and discountenanced by every man o...

Junius.   In the observations we submitted to our readers last week, arising from the notices that have been officially published, as the forerunners of some of the Bills to he laid before the Legislative Council, there is one point connected with the   Court of Requests, which for the moment escaped our atten- tion. It is impossible that one's memory can recur to the Sit- tings of the Court, under the late Act, without numerous in-   stances presenting themselves in which the wrangling and jar- ring of contending lawyers, supporting the interests of their respective clients, rather made it an arena for the discussion of legal quibbles, than the simple; yet invaluable Court of Equ...
