An Australian exchange writes ; One vessel was fixed on Thursday at Newcastle, at 25s per ton, for Melbourne, and the schooner Eliza Firth, which arrived on Thursday, also fixed at a fancy price for Auckland. Tonnage for all intercolonial ports is graedily sought, but. the vessels are not disposed to run the risk without receiving enormous rates. The Adelaide Steamship Company on Thursday made an offer at a high rate to Messrs Earp, Gillam, and Co., to purchase a large stock of coal, but they refused to sell under £3 per ton. Produce is increasing rapidly m price. During the week ending last Saturday 54,675 tons of coal were despatched from Newcastle to foreign and intercolonial ports, distributed as follows: Victoria, 19,579 tons ; South America, 17,350; South Australia, 2922 ; New Zealand, 9530 ; Guam, 2400 ; Fiji, 500 ; Queensland, 750, Wires were received m Newcastle from New Zealand offering almost any piice for vessels with coal cargoes, but none could be secured there.
