ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. THE CULTURE OF THE VINE.—No. 1. To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. (Concluded.) [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 2 March 1844

O-RXGIia'.&X CORSESFOKBEITCE. THE CULTURE OF THE VINE.-No. 1. To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. (Concluded.) Great care must be taken in training the young vines, and I may here remark that it is always best to have as few knots and twists as possible, they interfere with the flow of the sap, and are always a sign of bad management. A thin stick, or a Spanish cane is the best, must be laid from each of the young vines to the cross tree; one vigorous shoot from each must be trained up this to the top during the first year, if the plant has strength to bear it. All the other buds but this one, must be picked close off, throwing the whole strength of the plant into the one shoot ; and the future goodness of the vine will in a great measure depend upon the diligent working of the ground and attention to the plants during the first year. The whole of the ground should likewise be worked over, and may be sown with other crops. The subsoil which was set aside at first will by...

COMMERCIAL REMARKS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 2 March 1844

COMMERCIAL REMARKS. There have arrived this week rather fewer wool drays than for two or three weeks past ; but the business done in the town has been quite a fair average, as numerous return drays have gone up the country, generally taking more or less supplies. Money has been perhaps rather more plentiful in the town. On Friday last six drays passed through laden with admirably packed bales of wool, branded a bell, destined for Newcastle, to be shipped by the Gannet for London. A large quantity of wheat has been brought to market this week, but the demand has slackened a good deal, and 3s. to 3s. 3d. being the general prices offered, in some cases the parties took the wheat back again, and in a few proceeded on to Morpeth, where we hear some prime Wollombi fetched 3s. 9d. Early in the week one or two lots sold in the town for 3s. 6d., but there is very little demand for home consumption, as the millers are nearly full, and the Sydney market is so unsettled that no one seems willin...

MAITLAND BOILING DOWN ESTABLISHMENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 2 March 1844

MAITLAND BOILING DOWN ESTABLISH- MENT. On Wednesday we paid a visit to Mr. King's establishment, and were surprised to find how rapidly the concern was getting fitted up. There were four large boilers set above their respective furnaces, with the upper portion of one fitted on, and of another lying by just ready to be mounted. A covered drain leads from the trench in front of the furnaces, through which the spare and waste water from the boilers will flow off into the river. Adjoining the furnaces is the strongly inclosed slaughter room (if we may style it so), from which also a short covered drain leads into the one before spoken of, thus taking off the blood directly into the river. There will doubtless be other partitions put up in parts of the extensive area now inclosed, and intended to be covered in under one roof. In fact, the building is to be of extent sufficient to allow of almost indefinite addition to the power of the establishment, should it meet with sufficient support...

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 — 2 March 1844

SYSNET NEWS. Wholesale Prices of Colonial Farm and Dairy Produce in the Sydney Market, during the present week. Wheat, I regret to say, has had a further decline in price during the last week, owing to the contracts having been taken and the mills quite full, money scarce, and the weovil very troublesome. The prices obtained have been from 3s. 9d. to 4s. 3d. for the very primest samples; 4s. may be quoted as the average price-in fact, there has been too much sent into the market to keep it at a steady price. Flour etill continues without the least deviation. Maize also has had a further decline, and cannot be quoted at more than Is. 4d. to Is. 6d. per-bushel for the very best samples, free from weovil. Oats.-The best samples are realising 2s. wholesale. Barley.-Cape barley still continues in demand, though in small quantities, for sowing, and is selling at Is. 9d. to 2s. English barley is also in demand, the maisters having began to purchase for malting. ' Good plump samples will fe...

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. SALT BEEF. To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 2 March 1844

ORIGINAS CORRESPONDENCE. SALT BEEF. To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. Gentlemen-I perfectly agree with your correspondent " Nauticus" that want of proper attention on the part of the curers has much to do with the inferior quality of some of our beef when it has reached the London market ; but from the many instances to prove that beef of this colony is good, and keeps well when shipped as stores, even during long voyages, the impres- sion is left that when it arrives in England as cargo in an inferior state that the stowage has also something to do with it. We will not fall out, but I wish to aid " Nauticus's" chemistry a ïiftle. He throws great stress on the acid of the wood of this colony being injurious to the beef. Most of the woods of this colony, as well as everywhere else, contain, in common with the very best oak, a small quantity of gallic acid, which only produces colour when it comes in contact with metallic salts, particularly that of iron ; but I never heard, or ...

THE MAITLAND MERCURY. SATURDAY, MARCH 2, 1844. NEWCASTLE A FREE PORT. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 2 March 1844

THE MAITLAND MEBCUKY, SATURDAY, MARCH 2, 1844. NEWCASTLE A FREE PORT. Dur contemporary the Australian, in noticing the efforts now making to obtain for 'Newcastle the privileges of a free warehousing port, seems to think that the inhabitants ,of the district overrate the supposed advantages of what he terms a mere transit trade ; and proceeds to say : " The following pertinent remarks, which we 'extract from a late number of the Courrier Belge, reduce the question of the transit to its most simple form, and we Tecommend them to the attention of our Newcastle shippers : ' Do you see those triangular flocks of wild geese, that pass over Belgium in a few minutes without stopping ?' said a prudent merchant to his chil- dren. ' They are the image of advantages that you will derive from the transit of goods by means of our roads from Antwerp to Cologne. Tlie transit trade is only really profitable to a country when it increases the value of the mer- chandise by a considerable sum by the t...

CHINA. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 2 March 1844

CHINA. We have been favored by a mercantile firm with a Singapore Free Press and Supplement of 12th October, containing copious extracts from Chinese papers down to Sept. 30. We give an abstract of the more important news. 4 A supplementary treaty was to be signed early in October by Sir Henry Pottinger and the Imperial Commissioner, the provisions of which had been fully agreed on. It was to contain the regulations of commerce, tariff, &c. Sir Henry Pottinger was about to proceed to the Bogue, in H. M. steamer Driver, to meet Keying, the Imperial Commissioner, for the purpose of signing it, but it was not known whether the ceremony would take place on terra firma at Anunghoy, or on board the steamer. A Mr. Coolidge, a merchant at Canton, had presented a petition to Mr. Lay, the British officiating consul, complaining of obstructions thrown in the way of trade by the Hong merchants refusing any longer to act themselves as merchants, or to let their hongs and godowns to other...
