COMMERCIAL. WEEKLY EPITOME. Advertiser and Chronicle Offices, Friday evening, February 14. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 15 February 1868
COMMERCIAL. WEEKLY EPITOME. Advertiser and dtronide Offices, . : . ? ? Friday evening, February 14. General Business. — The import market has been void of animation during the week, and although the advices by the mail show a falling off in the exports to these colonies, yet up to the present time no improvement has mani fested itself. The news of a further fall in the value of our principal staples is dispiriting, especially to the pastoral and mining interests, and has had a somewhat depressing effect upon trade generally. The sales effected since our last report have mostly been on a moderate scale, with very little alteration in prices. Brandies incase, of choice brands, continue very scarce, and rates are higher. Candles move off in trade lots at about our quotations. Cornsacks are still exceedingly dull of sale, with a droop ing tendency. Ceylon plantation coffee is in better supply, and prices are not so firm. The market is bare of Java. Kerosine is quiet. Currants have found...

INTERCOLONIAL COMMERCIAL. VICTORIA. [From our Special Reporter.] [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 15 February 1868
INTERCOLONIAL COMMERCIAL. VICTORIA. [From our Special Reporter.] The business of the past week has not been characterised by any special activity. A great want of animation in all branches of trade having manifested itself. A considerable quantity of Java sugars passed under the ham mer from the hands of the importers, at prices which, considering their condition all round, may be said to have been fair market rates. Privately, sugars move off slowly — the prices asknd, however, show that holders are not at all inclined to give way to the middle men, so as to induce thorn to purchase. Breadstuffs have been uncommonly quiet during the week, and prices for flour have shown signs of weak ness, although quotations are maintained at last week's figures, viz., £15 to £15 103. for Victorian ; £13 10s. in bond for Tasmanian ; aud £18 103. to £19 for Adelaide. The Sydney market, which had .offered inducements to shippers, is now fully supplied for a time, some four or five vessels having arr...
