ENGLISH NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 2 March 1844
E1TCI.XSK xrarors. On Saturday, the 24th February, the barque Penyard Park arrived at Sydney, from London via Torbay, having left London 26th October, and Torbay 12th November. We have received papers by her to the end of October, but do not observe much of interest since the news we gave on receipt of the Alfred's files. For part of the following we are indebted to the Sydney Morning Herald, which has obtained two papers in November. The Dublin Grand Jury found a true bill against Mr. O'connell and the other parties charged with conspiracy. It was expected their trials would come on about the 13th November, and would last a month. The Judges had refused to grant a mandamus directing the Dublin magistrates to hear the charge of perjury brought by Mr. Barrett against Mr. Hughes, the crown evidence, until after the trial of Mr. O'connell and his companions. Mr. H. Warburton had been elected member for Kendal. In Ireland there had prevailed perfect peace and quietness. In Scotland the ...

SALT BEEF. To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. "Exitus acta probat." [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 9 March 1844
SALT BEEF. To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury, j "Exitus acta probat" I Gentlemen-In a letter signed '. Observer" in your paper of the 2nd March, the writer still follows up the old practice of attempting to disguise or hide the defects in curing our salt beef, instead of searching into the causes of defects, and pointing to a remedy, as any well wisher to the colony would try to do. According to the theory of acids, as laid down by Observer, they have only one property, viz., a preserving quality, and therefore the more acid of any kind the better. Now, if this argument was followed out, it would be better to dissolve the salt for pickle in vinegar instead of water; he could then recommend his beef as an anti-scorbutic. I presume Observer has mistaken his own name, or he would in various instances have seen the discoloration of the beef caused by acid; and if Observer knows anything of chemistry, he ought to have observed that acids mixed with or in contact with natural bodies ...

THE MAITLAND MERCURY. SATURDAY, MARCH 9, 1844. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 9 March 1844
TÖlVfMTLAND MERCURY. SATURDAY, MARCH 9, 1844. THE DISTRICT COUNCIL-THE BYE-LAWS. In "tïïe alteration of the bye-laws relating to the liability of landlords, the Council have not defined very distinctly in what cases they are liable. In bye-law 3 it is provided that " such rate or rates be paid by all persons being the landlords, tenants, or occupiers of any such lands or tene- ments as aforesaid, at the time of making or declaration of any such rate (Sr rates ;" while on clause 4 it is provided "that no landlord, tenant, or occupier of any such land or tenement shall be liable to the payment of any rate due or payable by any previous or former tenant or occupier thereof." Thus, in the 3rd clause the landlord is made first liable for the payment of the rates, while in the 4th clause he appears to be exempted from any liability, unless his land or tenement was unoccupied at the time of the declaration of the rate then being levied. Clause 6, too, evidently goes to exempt the landlord ...
MAITLAND DISTRICT COUNCIL. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 9 March 1844
MAITLAND DISTRICT COUNCIL. The quarterly meeting of the Council was held on Tuesday last, being the first Tuesday in March : present-E. C. Close, Esq., Warden, Messrs. Lang, Innes, and Hungerford. The Warden said the meeting was only called pro forma, as the consideration of the bye-laws was of course suspended for the present; but he thought as they had met it would be as well to consider another portion of the bye-laws, viz., those relating to education. For the present year the government had relieved them of the care and expense of the schools in the district, but after this year the burden would no doubt be thrown on them. As the subject must be met by them sooner or later, he thought they might as well take it into consideration at once. Captain Hungerford enquired at what time they would have to take the schools in hand, and what would be the probable amount required. The Warden said they would have to com- mence next year, and the expense might perhaps be £300 or £400 a year...
