COLONIA!. INTELLIGENCE. PORT PHILLIP. REPRESENTATION OF MELBOURNE.-The Port Phillip Herald of 2nd February, assuming the report that prevailed some time back, that Mr. Condell had agreed to resign his seat in the legislature on being elected a second time Mayor of Melbourne, to be correct, called on Mr. Condell to redeem his promise at once, by publicly announcing his resignation, to the end that his Excellency might issue a new writ, in time for the election of a member by the ensuing session.

HUNTER "RIVER DISTRICT NEWS. [FROM OUR CORRESPONDENTS.] HINTON. The maize crops in this district are looking exceedingly well, in consequence of the abundant refreshing showers we have lately been favored with ; though we regret to hear crickets in many places have done considerable damage to them.

SINGLETON. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 24 February 1844

SINGLETON. On Monday evening last the Total Abstinence Society, gave a tea party in their new building near the court house, which has received the ap- propriate name of " the Ark of Peace." The Rev. J. T. Lynch, who had just returned from Murrurundi and Muswellbrook, where he had formed branch societies under auspicious cir- cumstances, presided over the meeting. The reverend gentleman had exemplified the advan- tages of the system by his own example, having been exposed to all the inclemency of the wea- ther during so long a journey, (at every stage of which he had formed associations for the sup- pression of intemperance, besides discharging his clerical functions,) and declaring that he felt stronger than at any former period he had felt with the assistance of the moderate use of wine. The meeting was addressed by the reverend gen- tleman in his usual happy style, and by Messrs. Bailey, Brown, Kingsbury, and Harpur, in speeches of considerable length and effect. After the retire...

NEWCASTLE A FREE PORT. To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 24 February 1844

NEWCASTLE A FREE PORT. To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. GENTLEMEN-The inhabitants of this district ought, if they possessed any feeling, to be obliged to your correspondent " Discipulus" for his able letters on the subject of making New- castle a free port ; but, gentlemen, it would seem that this most important measure is almost lost sight of. The District Councit does not meet, and when it will again I question ; no one can tell. The interests and advancement of the . town are, one would think, of no importance to its inhabitants: we complain not,but take things, coolly. One day we are all eager to advise, to petition, and to adopt ; the next to forget all about it, and quietly to permit things to take the even tenor of their way. Perhaps, after all, we are not so much to blame, since our Warden sets us so good an example, and the other mem- bers of the Council, out of courtesy, do not seem inclined to act during his unavoidable and temporary absence. I would remind the tow...

THE MAITLAND MERCURY. SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 24, 1844. MAITLAND DISTRICT COUNCIL. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 24 February 1844

THE "MAITLAND MERCURY. SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 24, 1844.     MAITLAND DISTRICT COUNCIL. THE District Council were occupied on Tuesday last with the consideration of the bye-laws for regulating the assessment and levying of rates. The Council having declined allowing us to copy them until they are finally agreed to, we are unable to lay them before our readers ; and from the same cause we cannot at present do more than briefly notice two or three of the points which came under discussion on Tuesday. With regard to the rating of unoccupied houses, the Council came to the decision of exempting from rates all houses unoc- cupied at the time of fixing the rate, and which had been so for the three preceding months. This decision was come to on the ground that it would be unjust to tax the landlord for property which not only yielded him no return, but was an actual expense to him. If the Council admit this principle with regard to houses, they will be bound in justice...

HUNTER RIVER AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 24 February 1844

HUNTER RIVER AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY. A meeting of the committee was held on Tuesday last, at the Rose Inn, Mr. Doyle in the chair. A communication was received from the secre- tary, Mr. C. Wilson, stating that he was com- pelled to resign his office on account of the state of his health. The Rev. Mr. Stack stated that he had at present an opportunity of getting the writing: done, and he would therefore be willing to attend to the secretary's duties until after the ploughing match, when a regular appointment could be made. Until then all letters intended for the society could be addressed to the secretary, at the post office, Maitland. Several new members were then proposed and admitted. Mr. W. Chapman was appointed paid collector to the society. The Rev. Mr. Stack then submitted a draft of the regulations for the cottager's prize. A good deal of discussion took place upon several of the clauses, and the regulations were ultimately adopted as follows : " That cottagers admissible to co...

THE CULTURE OF THE VINE.—No. 1. To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. (Continued.) [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 24 February 1844

THE CULTURE OF THE VINE.-No. 1. To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. (Continued.) The choice of vines is a matter of considerable difficulty, and requires experience to do it well ; but the following general rules may be found useful. Endeavour to get the slips from a vine- yard possessing good healthy vines, but with a soil inferior to your own : visit the vineyard when the grapes are ripe, and mark the vines which produce the best fruit of the desired kind. Cut the slips from healthy middle-aged plants, choosing branches which are round and well formed, having buds prominent and as close together as possible. When it can be done, always have a piece of wood of the former year attached to the slip ; it will grow much better, and bear sooner ; these are called mallet slips, from their shape. When the older wood can- not be cut with the slip, take it off very close, so that it will have a small round knot at the end. Slips should never be cut from the main stem of a vine, they wil...

THE VINE.—PROFIT AND LOSS. To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 24 February 1844

THE VINE.-PROFIT AND LOSS. To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. GENTLEMEN-Your correspondent A. B. C, in your paper of the 27th ult., proposes ques- tions which, if replied to by men of experience, will place vine culture in this colony in its proper position. I perfectly agree with him that all matters of detail are subordinate to the present consideration, " Can wine be produced here with profit to the grower?" I have not the vanity to suppose that I am qualified to tender a complete solution to the enquiry, but I am willing to do so to the best of my ability ; and I hope others will also give the result of their experience with the same object, for none can be of greater interest to this district. I have resided in the " bush" nearly twelve years, during ten of which I have cul- tivated the vine, and have annually made wine since 1836. The following is the result of my reading and experience.

MAITLAND DISTRICT COUNCIL. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 24 February 1844

MAITIANB DISTRICT COUNCZXu A meeting of the council was held on Tuesday last, at their rooms, in the court-house; present, E. C. Close, Esq., Warden, Messrs. Lang, Innes, and Hungerford. The WARDEN opened the business by laying before the council the bye-laws, which had been put into proper shape by Mr. Chambers since the last meeting. The Wartlen then requested Mr. Chambers to read the bye-laws, which that gentleman proceeded to do, and an animated discussion took place on many of them, of which we can only find room for the heads. On how often the rates should be fixed? The Warden said the more convenient plan would be to fix the rate once a year, and make the collections half-yearly ; in Sydney they had fixed on intervals of three years, but he thought that too long a period where property was con- tinually changing in value ; at the same time it would be giving unnecessary trouble to go over them every half-year. It was agreed to fix the rate every year. Whether unoccupied house...

COMMERCIAL REMARKS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 24 February 1844

COMMERCIAL REMARKS. The business done in the town during the week has been rather less than usual, though siHce~~Monday a little briskness has been given to it by a very large number of wool drays having come in, some of which laid in supplies in the town. We do not hear of any purchases of wool. Money has been perhaps a little more plentiful. Of wheat comparatively a small quantity has "been brought to market, and not all sold. This market is at present in a very unsettled state ; some holders are demanding 5s. per bushel, and refuse to sell under, expecting the rise to continue, while buyers believe the market likely to fall, and will not go higher than 3s. 6d. for the very best. On Friday, the 16th, a lot of very fine wheat was sold at 4s. 4d., but since Monday we can hear of no actual purchase higher than 3s. 3d. We are informed, however, that 4s. has been offered for a prime sample of Wollombi wheat. In maize very little has been done, and there has been no alteration in price;...

ORIGXN&X. CORRESPONDENCE. ¡ THE GOAT NUISANCE. To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. GENTLEMEN-Can any of your numerous correspondents inform me why the goats that infest the locality of your office by day and night, lying about the streets, to the great dan- ger of her Majesty's liege subjects, should be so far favoured by the police that they are not noticed by them ? But if a pig happen to be seen poking his nose just into the street, his poor luckless wight of a master is immediately favoured with an invitation to meet Mr. Wood at the court house, which may, if the second offence, scarcely pay him for his trouble. Has a person no remedy when he finds these animals daily in his corn paddocks, destroying his property, but impounding them ? If so, be had better open his fences to them at once, for it would take his whole time to endeavour to catch themv and the remedy in the end prove worse than the disease. Yours, A SUFFERER.

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 — 24 February 1844

SYDNEY NEWS. WHOLESALE PRICES OF COLONIAL FARM AND DAIRY PRODUCE IN THE SYDNEY MARKET, DURING THE PRESENT WEEK. WHEAT AND FLOUR.-Wheat continues much the same in price as last week, only the millers are now choice as to samples ; the mills being now full they don't like to buy any but of the Very best qualities, which may be quoted at 4s. 6d. The contrasts being now taken, there is no prospect of a further rise, but I fear more likely a decline, especially in those samples which contain the weovil, anil which are only adapted for seconds flour and bran. Flour remains the same as last week." . MAIZE has had a further decline, the best samples not fetching more than Is. 6d. to Is. 7d., and weovil-eaten samples will scarcely sell at all. . OATS, for seed, are worth 2s. wholesale. BARLEY.-Cape barley is still in demand, and sells for 2s. English ditto is also in demand, and will fetch 2s. 6d. for the best malting samples. Inferior will not sell. HAY still continues very dull ; 50s. is a...

INQUEST. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 24 February 1844

INQUEST. An inquest was held on Thursday last, at the Northumberland Hotel, West Maitland, on the body of an infant of five months old, named James Darbyson, who had died in bed on the preceding morning, in his father's house, near the Falls. John Darbyson, being sworn, deposed that he was the father of the child, and that himself, his wife, and three children, including this infant, slept in the same bed. On Wednesday morning he got up at six o'clock as usual, and heard the child sucking; he woke his wife to   get up to go to work, and then left the child apparently asleep. He did not hear the child cry. He stopped about the place all day, but did not discover the child was dead until about twelve o'clock, when he went to wake it up. His Wife often went out to work, and left the child asleep, when he fed it with gruel on its awaking. When he found the child was dead he went to where his wife was at work washing, and told her to come home. The child was never sick or ai...
