SYDNEY NEWS. WHOLESALE PRICES OF COLONIAL FARM AND DAIRY PRODUCE IN THE SYDNEY MARKET, DURING THE PRESENT WEEK. WHEAT AND FLOUR-Both of these articles are looking up a little to what they were.

THE ANTARCTIC EXPEDITION. The Sydney Morning Herald of Monday last contains an account of the late Antarctic Expedition of Captains Ross and Crozier, from the Literary Gazette, of which we present our readers with an abstract. The Erebus, Captain James Ross, and the Terror, Captain Crozier, left England on the 29th September, 1839, and having made observations at Madeira and other islands, reached St. Helena on January 1st, 1840; this course having been taken to determine the minimum point of magnetic intensity, which was accurately done. A magnetic observatory was established at St. Helena, and the officers and instruments having been landed, the expedition sailed for the Cape of Good Hope, reaching it on the 17th March, and performing similar services there. A series of daily experi- ments were made throughout on the temperature and specific gravity of the sea, at various depths.

PORT PHILLIP. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 20 January 1844

POST FBILII?. iMPnovED PROSPECTS.-The general tone of the Port Phillip journals of the last week or two, like that of the Sydney journals, seems comparatively cheerful as regards the prospects of the new year. All seem to be of opinion that the worst is past. EMIGRANTS TO THE CAPE.-It is positively true that the number of immigrants going to the Cape, by the Lord Keane, increases daily, no less than twenty-six steerage, and four cabin passengers, having arranged with"the charterers up to yestesday afternoon. Poor fellows, we pity them.-P. P. Herald. COLONIAL BEEF.-The Geelong Advertiser publishes the following extract from a letter, received at Geelong, dated London, 2nd September :-" We learn from first-rate authority that the salted beef recently imported from Port Phillip is unsaleable, and scarcely worth the freight, being dark in colour, and in cut, shape, salting, and packing, compared with our native and Irish beef, appears, it is stated, almost unmerchantable.

COMMERCIAL REMARKS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 20 January 1844

COMMERCIAL REMARKS. Last week a very fair amount of business was done in Maitland, but this week has been dull and heavy. A larger number of wool drays have passed through during the week than in any previous one this season, but very few of them brought down any money, and orJers are entirely at a discount. We have not heard of any transactions in wool during the week, but last week 40 bales were sold at lOd. per lb. A moderate quantity of wheat has been brought in, of very fair quality, and some excellent from the Wollombi. The wholesale price has ranged from -2s. 9d. to 3s. 3d. per bushel. Maize has been selling at Is. 3d. wholesale, Is. 6d. retail ; but there has not been much offered, as it is getting rather scarce. Of Cape barley a fair quantity has been brought in, which has realised Is. 3d. per bushel. There is no English barley in the market. Potatoes have been selling wholesale at £3 per ton, retail at 4s. per cwt. ; but there has not been much done in this article. As the...

THE LANG TESTIMONIAL-MEETING AT NEWCASTLE. (From a Correspondent.) A meeting of the inhabitants of Newcastle was held on Wednesday last, at Mr. James Hannell's, the Ship Inn, for the purpose of raising a fund in aid of the Lang Testimonial. The room being inconveniently crowded, the meeting adjourned outside. JAS. REID, Esq., being called to the chair, briefly stated the objects of the meeting. The first resolution, as follows, was moved by Mr. JOB HODSON:- "That this meeting, deeply sensible of the importance of the Rev. Dr. Lang's services to the colony, entertains sentiments of high regard towards that gentleman, and feels itself imperatively called upon to publicly expres its gratitude and lend him its support for the good he has endeavoured to effect for the people, by the salutary measures he offered to the notice of the Legislative Council, of which assembly this meeting considers him an ornament."

ORZGIKTAZ. COSSIESFQNDEITCE. NEWCASTLE A FREE PORT. To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. GENTLEMEN-I take up my pen once more for the purpose of bringing before the public, in my humble way, a subject of paramount importance to the Hunter River district, namely, that of making. Newcastle a free warehousing port. In answer to communications from the District Council upon this subject, his Excellency states that the expense that would be entailed on the government by making Newcastle a free port would exceed the benefit to be derived from it by the district; and he is confirmed in thi3 opinion from the fact that the trade to this harbour has not increased according to his expectations when he granted permission for vessels to load for foreign ports. The privilege granted was no doubt a benefit to the place ; but what could his Excellency expect from it? Did he suppose that every one would avail themselves of the opportunity, and ship their produce from this port, when they were obl...
