COMMERCIAL REMARKS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 17 February 1844

COMMERCIAL REMARKS. The business transacted during the week has been about an average amount on the whole. A number of wool drays passed through the town, but not quite so many as a week or two back. We do not hear of any purchases of wool made during the week. In wheat a good deal has been done, at the same prices as last week, though the market seems firmer and more settled. What little difference has occurred is in advance, 3s. 6d. being the lowest we hear of having being given, and 4s. the highest. For one lot oft superior quality the latter price was refused and 4s. 6d. demanded, but we believe it could not be obtained. Many parties still appear to be holding back, in hope of a further advance. In maize there have*been a few transactions, at from Is. to Is. 3d. wholesale; several sales having been effected at the former price, and one or two lots of prime quality having been bought at the latter. One party was fortunate j enough to realise Is. 6d, In barley a little business ha...

THE MAITLAND MERCURY. SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 17, 1844. LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 17 February 1844

THE MAITLAND MEECUKY, SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 17, 1844. LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. ÏT will be seen by our Sydney news letter that tlie Governor lias issued a proclama- tion calling the Legislative Council together *on Tuesday, the 5th March next, for the despatch of business. **&? ENGLISH NEWS. IN our 4th page will be found an abstract of English news, as ample as our limits would permit us to give. So far as this colony is concerned, the news is of a very cheering character. Our staple production is gra- dually rising in price j and our tallow, -where it has been properly prepared, has found a ready market, at the highest cur- rent rates. We do not perceive in the ^papers we have received any notice of our salt beef, but there can be little question that that which reaches England in good condition will command a fair price. The general opinion of the English journals seems to be, that the woollen trade is in a 'healthy and improving state. The im- provement that has taken place in Am...

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. COLONIAL SALT BEEF. To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 17 February 1844

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. COLONIAL SALT BEEF. To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. GENTLEMEN-In reading the leading article upon salt beef in the Mercury of the 10th inst., I was struck with the answer contained in the article to the question-why is colonial beef of so little value in the London market ? Imper- fect statements are calculated to mislead, and do serious injury by directing attention to some supposed fault, and the cause of it, which has no existence in reality. Such I conceive to be the tendency of your correspondent's account of a conversation with a shipmaster now in Sydney, on one of the causes which lead to the more perfect preser- vation of Irish beef, viz. the stowing the ship's stores in an airy place on board ship ; thereby leading the settler or salter of beef to believe that his beef is injured on board ship, instead of fixing his attention to the defects in getting it up. But it is notorious to those who have been much at sea that it is a common practice ...

BRUTAL ATTEMPT AT MURDER. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 17 February 1844

BRUTAL ATTEMPT AT MURDER. On Sunday evening last a man named John Brown called on a tinman living at Morpeth, named James M'Kay, with whom he had a slight acquaintance, bringing a book with him. Shortly after he came in he called M'Kay's attention to the book, and asked him to read some of it to him, with which M'Kay complied, and continued reading till a late hour, Brown often asking him to read a little more. At last M'Kay said he could read no more, and as it was late he allowed Brown to sleep in his house, on some chairs. The night passed over quietly, and in the morning Brown left. He returned again on Monday evening, about dusk, and brought Bunyan's Pilgrim's Progress with him, which, after sitting a-while, he requested M'Kay to read to him. M'Kay complied, and read for some time, when he wished to lay the book down, as he said he was tired with sitting up the night before ; Brown, however, pressed him to read on a few pages, which he did. This was repeated three or four times...

HUNTER RIVER AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 17 February 1844

HUNTER RIVER AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY. A meeting of the committee was held on Tuesday last, at the Northumberland Hotel, Mr. Pilcher in the chair. Five new members were proposed and ad- mitted. -, Tlie following report from the sub-committee appointed to arrange the procuring of prize medals was then presented : "Your committee have directed their attention to the procuring of a prize medal, founded on economical principles, and in communicating the result of their labours have to present a medal manufactured and engraved in Maitland, the cost of which will not exceed one pound sterling. ^ " Your committee, however, would recommend a larger one (say, about one half the size larger than the one now produced), the cost of which would not exceed twenty-five shillings, as the great expense is the engraving, and the cost of engraving would not be more on a large space than on the contracted one now produced. "Your committee would also urge no time should be lost in giving the order, as it wi...

SYDNEY NEWS. WHOLESALE PRICES OF COLONIAL FARM AND DAIRY PRODUCE IN THE SYDNEY MARKET, DURING THE PRESENT WEEK. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 17 February 1844

SYDNEY NEWS. WHOLESALE PRICES OF COLONIAL FARM AND DAIRY PRODUCE IN THE SYDNEY MARKET, DURING THE PRESENT WEEK. WHEAT AND FLOUR.-There is a little alteration in the price of wheat. A cargo from South Australia sold at 5s. per bushel. It is a descrip- tion of wheat that appears to be pretty well liked, being rather a profitable, long grain ; and such a kind as I think would grow well in the Hunter River district. The ordinary wheat from that district has been selling during the week, the best at 4s. 9d., and pinched at 4s. to 4s. 6d. Flour remains without the least alteration from last week. MAIZE is selling at 1s. 9d. if good ; there has been a moderate qnantity in the market. OATS for seed are worth 2s. 6d. to 3s. BARLEY.-Cape barley is in demand, and sells for 2s. English barley is also in demand, and if of prime quality realises 2s. 6d., but will not sell at all if inferior. HAY is still dull ; 50s. is all that can be got for the very best. PIGS command a ready sale, according to...

ENGLISH NEWS. By the Alfred, which left Plymouth on the 2nd November, and arrived at Sydney on Sun- day last, we have English papers to the 24th October. The Queen and the Royal Family were in the enjoyment of excellent health. The Queen and Prince Albert had visited Cambridge, on which occasion the degree of Doctor of Civil Laws was conferred oa Prince Albert.

THE REVENUE.-The Standard had published a statement of the revenue and expenditure for the year ending 10th October, 1843, which exhibits the following result : Revenue . £51,920,958 Expenditure. 51,012,416 Excess of revenue .. £908,541 Tlie same paper contrasts this result with those for the six preceding years to the same date, in which there had been a large deficiency.

HUNTER RIVER DISTRICT NSVB. [FROM OUR CORRESPONDENTS.] NEWCASTLE. POLICE OFFICE.-TUESDAY, FEB. 13. (Before Major Crummer, J.P., and Captain Armstrong, J.P.) ^ James Hyde, John Hussey, Wm. Wellwood, Charles Clarke, William Cokeler, and Andrew Redman, all assigned to the A. A. Company, were severally charged with drunkenness and disorderly conduct, and sentenced to seven and fourteen days solitary confinement, each accord- ing to his police character. It appeared the prisoners received on Saturday last the gratuities allowed to them for extra work during the month, and appropriated the money in the way most agreeable to their feelings-in getting drunk and disorderly, a practice which they, in the pleni- tude of their wisdom and gratitude to the com- pany, considsr absolutely necessary every pay day. Solitary confinement, on the classic regimen of coarse bread and cold water, in the dog days, is a most excellent system, and inva- riably causes these gentry to be somewhat shy in courtin...

LAYING THE FOUNDATION STONE OF THE MAITLAND GAOL. Yesterday morning, about ten o'clock, the foundation stone of the gaol was laid, near the north-west corner of the inclosure within the walls. The stone was laid by E. D. Day, Esq. assisted by Captain Day, W. M. Lewis, Esq., Colonial Architect, and a few other gentlemen. Very few persons were present, partly owing to the showery morning, but more to the hurried notice received.''by the authorities here of the intention to Lay the stone on that day ; Mr. Lewis having only come up on the preceding day, and no previous notice having been given in any way. Several coins of the reigns of George III., George IV., William IV., and her present Majesty, together with an inscription, were placed in a bottle, sealed up, and deposited within the stone. The inscription was as follows : ON THE 16TH DAY OF FEBRUARY, IN THE YEAR OF OUR LORD 1844, IN THE SEVENTH YEAR OF THE REIGN OF HER MOST GRACIOUS MAJESTY QUEEN VICTORIA, AND IN THE SIXTH YEAR OF T...

LITERARY NOTICE. An Essay on the Making of Wine. By A. Henderson, Esq. Second Edition. Duncan: Sydney, 1844. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 24 February 1844

LITERARY NOTICE. An Essay on the Making of Wine. By A. Henderson, Esq. Second Edition. Duncan: Sydney, 1844. We hail with mtich pleasure the appearance of this little volume, the more especially as the art of which it treats is beginning to occupy the attention of the Australian public to a consider- able extent, not merely as si science to occupy the leisure hours of the actively indolent, or to contribute to the luxuries of the pampered, but as one that will find wholesome and lucrative employment for the industrious, and eventually become one of the sources of wealth to our young community. This unpretending work is written in a clear and concise style, though the subject is treated in rather too learned and technical a manner for many of those to whom it is addressed, for it will require some knowledge of chemistry to understand many of its details ; and we have strong reason to suspect that much of the text has been borrowed from other authors on the same subject. We only wish ...
