ENGLISH NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 7 January 1843

ENGLISH NEWS. By the arrival of the Hamlet on Sunday last we have intelligence from England up to the 12th September. The principal topic of interest was her Majesty's visit to Scotland, and the reception which her Majesty recieved from the inhabitants of that ancient kigdom appears to have been of the most ethusiastic and loyal descrip- tion. After making a public entry into the city, of Edinburgh, and staying there a few days, her Majesty took her departure from Dalkeith palace on the 6th Septem- ber, and on the following day the royal cortege left the palace of Scone to visit the Highlands. A report had prevailed that the king of Hanover was dead, but, by intelligence recieved from Dusseldorf of Sept 6., it appeared that his Majesty was not then dead, but was seriously ill, and but faint hopes were entertained of his recovery. It was stated that the health of the Duchess of Orleans, and her second son, the Duke de Chartres, was in a very un- satisfactory state. The regency bill i...

HUNTER RIVER SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 7 January 1843

HUNTER RIVER SOCIETY: The general committee of this society   held a meeting on Thursday, the 22nd_of December, at the office of Mr. Plaistowe, East Maitland, at which an animated and;   able discussion took place as to whether those exhibitors at the shows who might obtain prizes should be bound to disclose the method by which their improvements had been effected. Some of the members present seemed to think that if this was not done it would be to set up a sort of mono- poly, and that as the principal object of the society was to disseminate the infor- mation requisite to make the resources of the district available, rather than to reward individual skill, it would be but fair that those who obtained the prize should in return disclose their process. Those mem- bers who opposed the proposition thought it would be unfair to the parties who had effected the improvement, which perhaps required a great deal of skill and applica- tion, to disclose by what means...

THE NEW LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 7 January 1843

THE NEW LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. In the Hunter River district, as well as in other parts of the colony, the note of preparat on for the ensuing election of repre entatives to the legislative council is already sounding. Mr. Andrew Lang, of Dunmore, whose address to the electors will be found in another column, has already offered himself as a candidate for the representation of the Lower Hunter district, and it is said that Captain Scott, of Bengalla, is likely to come forward for the Upper Hunter. We have heard the names of several other gentlemen mentioned, but, as there are nothing more than floating rumours on the subject, and in some cases mere surmises, we refrain from giving them publicity at present. A public meeting of the inhabitants of the district will be held on Monday, at noon, at the Rose Inn, for the purpose of nominating or inviting candidates, and we have heard several gentlemen named as likely to be proposed. We hope this meeting will be numerously attended, and that ...

BRITISH EXTRACTS. WOOL MARKETS. (From the Leeds Mercury, Aug. 27.) [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 7 January 1843

BRITISH EXTRACTS. WOOL MARKETS.   ( From the Leeds Mercury, Aug.27.)     THE WOOL TRADE LONDON, THURS- DAY.-The sales of wool are moderate, and prices have been much the same. The imports of wool into London during the week ending to-day have been 1,363 bales, of which 602 were from Hobart Town, 82 from Sydney, 110 from the Cape of Good Hope, 7 from Calcutta, 539 from Ger- many, and 23 from Spain. Accounts from Paris of Monday state that although the holders of wool had reduced their prices, they were still too high to induce the manufacturers to purchase. This remark applies both to combed samples and to wool in the fleece. FOREIGN WOOL TRADE, LEEDS, AUG. 26.-In most descriptions of foreign wool there have been but few transactions during the past week, although, now that the disturbances are quelled, there is every prospect of .the trade gradually improving. ENGLISH WOOL MARKET, LEEDS, AUG.. 26.-During the present week sales of wool have not ...

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. THE HUNTER RIVER SOCIETY. To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. GENTLEMEN-The proceedings of the first meeting of this society, held at East Maitland, on the 6th October last, were published in the Sydney Herald of the 12th of the same month, at which meeting a committee was formed with instructions " to frame laws and bye laws for carrying into effect the objects of the society, and for fixing the amount of subscription;" both of which directions have by various com- mittee meetings, held every alternate Thursday since that meeting, been fully carried into effect, and the committee has further prepared a list of articles, stock, &c for which it is proposed to offer premiums.

BENEVOLENT ASYLUM. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 7 January 1843

BENEVOLENT ASYLUM. Most of our readers in this town and neigh- bourhood are doubtless aware that this institu- tion has been commenced, and we trust its pro- gress may be prosperous, as we are confident that its establishment will be attended with the greatest benefit to the poor. The objects of the institution are, to afford an asylum to the sick and destitute, and to disperse medicine gratis to the poor; and we are happy to learn that the medical gentlemen of the neighbourhood have consented to give their free services to the insti- tution. The house at present opened as an hospital is the one lately occupied as the Immi- grants home at East Maitland, where patients are recieved on the recommendation of subscribers, subject to the approval of a sub-committee.

POETRY. THE BRETON MOTHER. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 7 January 1843

POETRY. THE BRETON MOTHER. BY MRS. NORTON. It was a Breton Mother, Long widowed and alone- From her brow the look of gladness, From her lips the smile was gone ; But the light of Beauty lingered Despite the trace of tears,     For her gentle cheek was faded With sorrow more than years. Her anxious gaze was resting   On a proud and stately boy, With a mingled sweet expression,   Half mournfulness, half joy;     The Widow's look confessing, Though sharp life's trial pains,   All is not desolation While Mother-hood remains! Fair was the face she gazed on, Not only unto her, (For love's bright wand of magic Can unreal gifts confer), But, even to the stranger,   A mien more bright and bold   Ne'er struck the dull and careless, Or warmed and won the cold. Courage and thought were blended On his forehead proud and fair, Around it careless waving The locks of raven hair; Whil...

NOTICES TO CORRESPONDENTS. We must apologise to our Sydney correspond- ents for the non-insertion of the communica- tions which they have so kindly forwarded to us, and also to our Newcastle correspondent for the omission of a portion of his communi- cation, as owing to the hurried manner in which we have been obliged to bring out our first number, we were unable to give them insertion.

VARIETIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 7 January 1843

VARIETIES. MOST EXTRAORDINARY PERFORMANCE IN THE MANUFACTURE OF A COAT.- The somewhat surprising statement which we published on the 2nd instant, of a beautiful brown dress coat having been manu- factured and made in Leeds in the space of 19 hours, can scarcely equal the follow- ing as a feat of expedition, one we should think, unparalleled ín the history of coat-making. The late Sir John Trock- morton, Bart., a noble minded gentleman, and one ardently devoted to improvements in agriculture, with a view to encourage the growth of British wool, at five o'clock in the morning of the 25th June, 1811, presented two sheep to Mr. Coxeter, of Greenham Mills, Newbury, Berks, for the purpose of proving that a coat could be made of the wool before night. The sheep were immediately shorn, and the wool sorted, &c., it passed through the usual process of scouring, dyeing, scrib- bling, spinning (on the jenny,) weaving (by hand,) and a fine kersey cloth was manufactured before four o'cloc...

HUNTER RIVER DISTRICT NEWS. [FROM OUR CORRESPONDENTS.] JERRY'S PLAINS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 7 January 1843

HUNTER RIVER DISTRICT NEWS [FROM OUR CORRESPONDENTS] JERRY'S PLAINS. From about the middle of June to the 16th of last month little or no rain fell on these plains. A drought so unusually long, attended as it was by intensely heated winds, had a destructive effect on the wheat crops, as well as on the live stock in general. Cattle and sheep, reduced to mere skeletons, were daily dying of starvation? and it was with considerable difficulty that food could be procured for the horses. Fortunately, however, in the afternoon of the above day, a   thunder storm of so violent a description visited us that before the expiration of two hours the waterholes were filled and the flats completely inundated. The weather since that period could not have been more favourable to vegetation; fine showers, with for the most part cloudy weather, have caused our hills and plains to put on the cheerful and delightful appearance of an English spring. Heavy rain has been falling nearly the who...

THE MAITLAND MERCURY. SATURDAY, JANUARY 7, 1843. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 7 January 1843

THE MAITLAND MERCURY. SATURDAY, JANUARY 7, 1843. WE now present to the inhabitants of Mait- land, and the Hunter River district gener- ally, the first number of the " MAITLAND MERCURY," and in doing so it will of course be expected that we should make some avowal of the principles upon which we intend to conduct it. That a local organ was much wanted in this impor- tant portion of the colony, we think few will deny ; and that the establishment of such a journal upon sound and liberal principles, will be found a great advantage to the inhabitants of the the district will, we think, be as readily conceded by all. Its advantages will be apparent in the tendency it will have to develope the latent resources of the locality, to bring them, as it were, into existence, by presenting them to the notice of the public, and by enabling all those who have the real pros- perity of the colony at heart to concentrate their energies, as to one common focus, for the purpose of bringing out those re-...
