Influence of Price of Articles on Money Market.

„High prices make dear money.“ I.e. the amount of money borrowed in times when Prices high larger than when they are cheap. The amount borrowed to hold the raw material is larger. Amount required for the discount of bills larger, because the bills are drawn for larger amounts. A rise in the price of all articles has a most sensible effect on the value of money. A rise in the price of a single article, especially when it promotes transactions, has sometimes some effect.

Nach Advices to 31 January, 1868: such establishments were in full work at Port Augusta und Guichen Bay (South Australia) at Echuca, Geelong, Ballarat, Portland Bay, und Melbourne; and also on many sheep farms in Victoria, for the sole use of their owners. Estimated that fully 60,000 sheeps boiled down per week in the 2 colonies of Victoria and South Australia. The average net proceeds of this method of disposing of sheep did not exceed 3s. 6d. or 4s. per sheep, except at Ballarat, Melbourne, and Geelong, where the hind legs could be sold for 7d. each, while at the other places they were simply wasted, as no population to consume them, and the excessive heat of the climate prevented their being cured for shipment to Europe.
