SYDNEY. Our Sydney files aro complete to the tith instant. Tratte remained inactive, and prices were as last quoted. In the Legis'ativo Council on the 7th instant, be foi e proceeding to the business on the paper, Mr. Flood rose and stated, in regai d "to the question of privilege which had been mooted on Friday, it had gone abroad that ko wished to exclude the press from the Council Chamber.

The Mercury: TOWN EDITION. HOBART TOWN: SATURDAY. NOVEMBER 8, 1854. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 18 November 1854

Ä WTw TOWN EDITIC1J. HOBART TOWN: SATURDAY. NOVEMBER .8, 1861. IN one of the paragraphs of Hw í XCELLENCY'S valedictory speech to the Council, we find an expression of satisfaction at the probable ade- quacy of next year's revenu« to the demanda it would have to meet. Were this «pinion suppoited by a reference to the present condition of our trade it would indeed be gra- tifying, but we fear that however flourishing may be the state finar ces of the colony, it is attributable ra- ther to the past prosperity, than to any real soundness either in our present condition or our future pros- pects. It is unnecessary to accumu- late proof of the present depression of commercial matters or of its ex- tension to every branch of trade. We have only to appeal to the deficiency of our exports- the complaints of our shopkeepers- the aspect of our wharves and thoroughfares, to find ample evidence of its truth. In reality the bustle and profit of the last two years are rapidly giving way to an apa...
