GARLAND AND BINGHAM'S WEEKLY REPORT. [Newspaper Article] — Kiama Examiner — 22 October 1859
GARLAND AND BINGHAM'S WEEIKLY REPORT. The market for store stock is still very inactive. Rains have lately fallen in the immediate vicinity of Melbourne, but they have not extended far into the interior, and tile dread of a dry season still prevails. We have quitted some lots of mixed cattle at £3 12s. 6d., and sheep in tile northern districts at from los, to 12s. Prices on the whole remain very firm. In fact, purchasers for the southern market can hardly see a sufficient margin on tile rates demanded by breeders. In stations little is doing, bnut we are at present in treaty for the sale of several, which we have no doubt will be effected. 11i, York-street, Sydney, October 20th, 1859.

Hence, favourable as the position of tho.society now is, there is every reason to expect that the existing business wvill, on fuittire occasions, show an increasingi ratio of profit. A deduction of 20 per cent. from ihe ahove mentioned profit, by way of reserve fund, may, perhaps, be desirable in compliance with the proviszons of the 27th by-lawv, andis imply eitiflcieit to meet any contin gency that may arise.
