THE MAITLAND MERCURY. SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 18, 1843. ENGLISH NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 18 February 1843

THE MAITLAND MEECURY. SATURDAY, FEBRUARY l8, 1843. ENGLISH NEWS. By the arrival of the Glenbervie at Hobart Town, intelligence from England has reached this colony to the 26th October. The Queen was again in " an interesting and delicate situation." Prince Albert, the Prince of Wales, and the Princess Royal, were in good health. A mysterious story was afloat of some strange " mishap" having occurred with Prince George of Cambridge and a lady of high rank. An appeal had been made to the Queen, and the father of the lady demanded a speedy marriage as the only reparation that he would accept. The Archbishop of Sydney had an interview with Lord Stanley at Knowsley Hall, on the 21st October. It was expected that his Grace would sail about the 1st November. Dr. Stopford, Archdeacon of Armagh, has been promoted to the Bishopric of Meath. The great fire at Liverpool had broken out a third time, and destroyed an immense quantity of property saved from the former conflagrations. The celebrate...

BUSHRANGING. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 18 February 1843

BUSHRANGING. The country between Maitland and Singleton has during the last week been in a state of ex- citement and alarm, inconsequence of the many depredations which have been committed by bushrangers, at various places on the road. On Saturday last a fellow, well armed, en- tered the house of Mr. Mark Green, known as the " Old Red House," on the old road to Black Creek, and having bailed up Mr. and Mrs. Green he proceeded to plunder the premises. He took away with him a gun, two pistols, a quantity of Mr. Green's wearing apparel, and all the money he could find in the house. On Monday Mr. Benjamin Singleton was stopped near Harpur's Hill, and robbed of £11 ; and it is reported that several other persons were robbed in that neighbourhood, on the same day, and nearly at the same time. About four o'clock on Tuesday afternoon, as Mr. Crawford, of Wollombi, was coming to Maitland in his gig, he.was stopped by an armed man, about a mile on this side the Red House. It was known that a ...

HUNTER RIVER DISTRICT NEWS. [FROM OUR CORRESPONDENTS.] NEWCASTLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 18 February 1843

HUNTER RIVER, DISTRICT NEWS. [FROM OUR CORRESPONDENTS.] NEWCASTLE. THE MARKETS.-There is no alteration what- ever in prices, and the market still continues to be well supplied. COMMITTAL.-On Friday last Patrick O'Hara, who is in custody on a charge of assaulting and wounding corporals Scott and Savage of the 99th regiment, was again brought before the police court for final examination before the magistrates, and was fully committed to take his trial for the offence. SINGLETON. THE WEATHER.-Tuesday, the 14th, set in calm, and oppressively warm ; not a breath of air was felt, all was still and silent as death, until between two and three o'clock, when the wind suddenly commenced blowing with great force from the southward, bringing with it immense clouds of dust, and towards evening a little rain. The following day was cloudy and cool, and a few very slight showers fell ; this day has also set in cloudy, with occasional slight showers of rain. Much of the late sown corn is completely...

COMMERCIAL REMARKS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 18 February 1843

COMMERCIAL REMARKS. There has been but little business transacted during the past week. The prices of grain and flour seem to be gradually coming down; the average price of wheat may be quoted at about 4s per bushel, though there were a few bushels of very superior wheat sold in the beginning of the week for 8s 6d per bushel ; but this cannot be regarded as a general price. There has been a fall of 2s per 100 lbs in the price of flour at Nicholson's mills ; and bread has also lowered in price 1d in the 4 lb loaf. There is very little maize in the market, and if rain does not fall plentifully in the course of a few days, it is more than probable the crops will be unusually light. The prices of grain in Sydney appear to be stationary, but we have been favored with the sight of a private letter, the writer of which thinks a rise will probably take place in the course of a week ot fortnight.

SYDNEY NEWS. LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 10. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 18 February 1843

STTDTNEY NEWS. LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 10. Mr. JONES presented a petition from the Mayor and Corporation of Sydney praying for certain amendments in the Corporation Act, which was received and ordered to be printed. The ATTORNEY GENERAL presented a petition, signed by 130 electors of the country districts residing in Sydney, praying that polling places might be erected in Sydney at which the peti- tioners could vote for their respective districts, which was read and received. Mr. H. H. MACARTHUR said he had drawn up a scheme for the division of the colony into electoral districts, and he would give notice of his intention to bring it before the council. He had consulted the maps and statistical returns, and he thought his scheme would be found advantageous. Instead of St. Vincent and Auckland being united to another county, which he thought would be found inconvenient, he proposed to give them a member. The following was the plan of which he would give notice : Mem. Po...

BRITISH EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 18 February 1843

BRITISH EXTRACTS. THE NEW TARIFF.-On Monday, the 10th of October, the first sale of foreign provisions under the new scale of duties took place in this town. The quantity offered was considerable, and the attendance appears to have been extremely good, many persons having come from distant parts of the country. Perhaps on this account the prices obtained offer a less fair criterion of the rates likely to be permanently realised for articles of the same description.' These sales comprised-1,522 barrels of American beef, 2,199 barrels of American pork, 311 barrels of American hams, 691 barrels of Canadian pork, and 35 barrels of Canadian beef, and excited considerable interest and curiosity. The pork was generally very well fed, though rather fatter than the usual run of Irish. Of the beef, on the contrary, it was observed that it was not sufficiently well fed. We question whether the sales have resulted to the satisfaction of the importers generally : the buyers generally acted with ...

MAITLAND BENEVOLENT ASYLUM. To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 18 February 1843

MAITLAND BENEVOLENT ASYLUM. To the Editors of the Slaitland Mercury. GENTLEMEN.--On reference to your leading remarks in your Mercury of the 4th instant, with reference to the above named asylum, I could not resist a strong feeling of indignation at the extent of your liberality (11th commandment) when you state " that application has been made to his Excellency the Governor for the fines of the other police courts of Hunter's River, and refused, on what grounds you are not exactly aware." As you are so ignorant on the subject, allow me to enlighten you. The Act of Council passed with reference to the subject in question gives all drunken fines to the asylum in the district of the police court in which such fines are levied ; and in case such district has no asylum, they then revert to the Benevolent Asylum, Sydney. Under this pro- vision, you cannot doubt for a moment the ground of refusal : it was " because he had no power to do it." But more of this. Singleton had a Benevolent As...

LEGISLATIVE AND DISTRICT COUNCILS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 18 February 1843

LEGISLATlVE AND DISTRICT COUNCILS. Agreeably to our promise of last week, we now proceed to lay before our readers a concise analysis of that part of the Act of Parliament for the Government of New South Wales which provides for the crea- tion of District Councils, for the purposes of local government. That the power of local taxation will rest chiefly with the district councils is clear from the words of Lord Stanley in his despatch to the Governor which accom- panied the Act of Parliament. His Lord- ship says :-" Large as are the revenues of New South Wales, and comparatively light its taxation, it is thought desirable that the objects to which mainly the public expen- diture should be limited ought to be such as are of general and not of purely local interest; and that these latter objects should be in the main provided for by local taxation, and managed on the spot by local boards, chosen from among the inhabitants out of whose means the expen- diture is to be defrayed." In acco...

COMMERCIAL REMARKS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 25 February 1843

COMMERCIAL REMARKS. Owing to the late rains and the floods there has been very little business transacted this week. The average price for the best wheat may now be quoted at about 4s. per bushel. Maize seems to have undergone no alteration. If the weather now clears up it is probable that there will soon be a large quantity of new maize brought into the market.
