COMMERCIAL REMARKS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 9 March 1844

COMMERCIAL REMARKS. There has been a very fair amount of business transacted in the town during the week. A good number of wool drays have arrived, which have added to the retail trade done. We only hear of one purchase of wool, or rather advance made on it, at Is. per lb. for 40 bales. Less Dusiness has been done in the wheat market than lately, mainly owing to the millers at present having large stocks. Excellent wheat was offered to one in vain at 3s. per bushel. The price of wheat bought for sale in Sydney is about 2s. 9d. to 3s. 3d., but little has been done, we believe. Another large buyer gives us the following as the prices given by him : 4s., 3s. 8d., 3s. 3d., 3s. 8d., 3s., 2s. lOd. It is difficult to say what may be considered the average price, but 3s. is the general answer to the enquiry. Maize is selling very low ; 40 bushels having been bought at 10d., and 10 at 9d. ; it is retail- ing* in the town at Is. Some has even been offered at 8d. Fot the Sydney market the bnye...

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 — 9 March 1844

SYDNEY NEWS. Wholesale Prices of Colonial Farm and Dairy Produce in the Sydney Market, during the present week. Wheat, I am sorry to say, is still on the decline ; 3s. 6d. to 3s. 9d. may be quoted as the very highest price obtained for the very best samples. Inferior samples will not sell at any price, the mills being full. Flour.-There is no alteration in price, but it must soon be lower if wheat continues to decline. Maize can only be quoted at Is. 3d. to Is. 4d. per bushel ; one or two small lots have fetched Is. 6d., but it was very good and free from weovil. Hay continues the same as last week, 50s. being the highest price for best samples of compressed lucerne or oaten. Pigs meet with a ready sale at 3d. per lb., and are in demand if in good condition. Cheese remains in the same state as last week, without the least alteration. Butter is much lower in price, owing to the large quantities that have arrived during the week. Bacon and Hams.-There is sale for both, if good qualiti...

PORT PHILLIP. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 9 March 1844

PORT PHILLIP. Two immigrant vessels had arrived at Port Phillip, the Wallace and the Royal Consort, the first bringing 307, and the latter 245 immigrants. On board the former vessel 38 deaths had occured, mostly from diarrhoea. It will be remem- bered that the Royal Consort brings on the unfortunate immigrants who were wrecked in the Burhampooter. Complaints were made of the behaviour of the officers of the Wallace to parties going on board to select servants. Mr. Ebden, one of the members for Port Phillip, had resigned. No resident of Port Phillip had been named to succeed him, Mr. Curr being still disgusted by his rejection at the the general election. Mr. J. A. Smith had been despatched to Sydney with a requisition to G. R. Griffiths, Esq., to allow himself to be put in nomination. Mr. Griffiths was stated to be a landed proprietor in the district, and a member of one of the Melbourne mercantile firms.

MR. WHITE'S LECTURE. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 9 March 1844

MR. WHITE'S LECTURE. On Tuesday last Mr. J. S. White delivered the first of a series of lectures on the Mechanical Powers, in the Scots Church, West Maitland. The building was quite crowded, about 200 persons being present. The lecturer commenced by giving Plato and Aristotle's definitions of man; and, from Aristotle's definition of him as a tool-using animal, went on to explain the origin of the term machine, and to describe the six mechanical powers, by various combinations and modifica- tions of which all tools and machinery are made -viz., the lever, the pulley or cord, the inclined plane, the wheel and axle, the wedge, and the screw. , He then pointed out the necessity of allowing for friction in all calculations of the powers of machinery, and proceeded to describe the varied modes of applying the lever, the first mechanical power. Levers were of three orders : the first, in which the prop was between the weight and power; the second, in which the weight was between the prop a...

STEAM-BOAT CHARGES. To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 9 March 1844

STEAM-BOAT CHARGES. To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. Gentlemen-There is a matter very much complained of, but never yet brought before the public, and it very materially, too, concerns tty\ interest of this district, that is, the high price charged by the steamers for carrying small cases to Sydney, which renders it impossible to send many articles of produce to the market there, which could otherwise be sent in great perfection from this quarter. For instance, eggs, the freight is about a penny per dozen, and the wholesale price is often not above 3d., leaving only 3d. to the producer, with the loss of his empty pac&tgej'which the steam-boat people are remarkably careless about; they are seldom ever 'brought back. The carriage of butter is Id. a;pound ; and the freight of grapes is about Id. a pound : they have been selling wholesale at 3d. in Sydney, leaving only 2d. to the grower. Oranges, too, cost Id. a dozen freight, with the loss almost in every case of the ret...

SALT BEEF. To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 9 March 1844

SALT BEEF. I To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. Gentlemen-Your correspondent Observer, in attempting to aid Nauticus's chemistry a little, is evidently incompetent to the task, and lest his remarks should mislead, I will venture to put both Nauticus and Observer right upon the subject. " Most of the woods of this colony, as well as everywhere else," says Observer, " contain, in commonnvith the best oak, a small quantity of gallic acid." This statement is erroneous, for by applying the most delicate tests for gallic acid to an infusion or decoction of any plank in the colony, or even oak itself, not the slightest proof of the existence of gallic acid is discover- able, that acid being generally found in the bark of trees and excrescences, in conjunction with tannin. Again, Observer says, "There is another acid which is common to air woods, which is the pyroligneous." This statement is equally erro- neous with the preceding, for I will defy your correspondent to prove the existen...

BRITISH EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 9 March 1844

BRITISH EXTRACTS. New Horse-Shoe.-A simple but most inge- nious invention has been laid before us, in the bhape of an improvement in the horse-shoe. It is that of making that part of the shoe which is now solid, concave, by which the foot is enabled to take a grip, which, with the ordinary shoe, is impossible. The principle is, in fact, that of the, fluted skate; and whilst the shoe is, of course, lighter than when manufactured on the usual principle, it is equivalent in slippery weather, or on wood pavement, to one that is roughed. The concavity runs entirely round the shoe, having a strong rim in front, equal in thickness to the hoof of the horse's foot, and another at the back of half that thickness. This mode of formation, whilst it involvs the use of a smaller quantity of iron, and consequently less weight, gives a far greater purchase, and is much more in accordance with the nature, form, and texture of the horse's foot. By preventing the necessity of turning up the shoe behin...

HUNTER RIVER AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY. A meeting of the committee was held at the Rose Inn on Tuesday last, Mr. Doyle in the chair. The rules and regulations of the society, as revised by the sub-committee appointed for that purpose, were submitted to the meeting, and after considerable discussion, which resulted in one or two trifling alterations, were adopted.

THE MAITLAND MERCUKY, SATURDAY, MARCH 16, 1844. AIR. WINDEYER AND HIS CONSTITUENTS. On Thursday last Mr, Windeyer met his constituents at Cox's Hotel, East Maitland. There were but very few of the electors of Durham present, and not more than thirty persons altogether. The hon. and learned gentleman addressed the meeting for nearly three hours, taking a review of the proceedings of the Legis- lativer Council during the late session, and the reasons which liad influenced him in the votes which ~ke had given. Two resolutions were passed, expressive of the confidence of the meeting in Mr. Win- deyer; and questions were put to him -regarding his opinions on the subject of education, and as to his reasons for voting for Is. per bushel duty on imported wheat, and against the reduction of the quali- fication of District Councillors.

SYDNEY NEWS. WHOLESALE PRICES OF COLONIAL FARM AND DAIRY PRODUCE IN THE SYDNEY MARKET, DURING THE PRESENT WEEK. WHEAT is still on the decline, 3s. being the highest price given for very best samples ; inferior samples scarcely saleable at any price. The market continues glutted, and nothing but prime samples are saleable. FLOUR maintains the same price as last week, but if wheat continues to decline an alteration must soon take place. MAIZB also continues to decline, Is. to Is. 3d. per bushel is all that it will realise for best samples ; inferior samples unsaleable, except for pigs and poultry, at 8d. to lOd. per bushel. OATS remain steady, and are fetching about the same prices as lust week. CAPS BARLEY is.still saleable in small quantities for sowing, at Is. 6d. to Is. Od. per bushel of 251bs.

COMMERCIAL REMARKS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 16 March 1844

COMMERCIAL REMARKS. The business done during the week has been about an average ; fewer wool drays have come down, while the assizes have given a slight spur. We have not heard of any purchase of wool. Several sales of stock by auction 'have taken' place during the week, which have been well attended. Milch cows were sold at an average of 37s. 6d. per head, 35s. being the lowest; the demand good. Horses went "off rather .flatly, and realised from £8 to £13. The quantity of wheat brought in was rather lessened by the rain on Tuesday, but not much, and some of it found buyers, though at reduced rates. The prices given have varied from 2s. 6d. to 3s. 3d., and 2s. 9d. may be said to be now the average. ,,i , .There bas ¡not been much wholesale business done in other articles. The supply of yegetables is increasing in variety and quality, excepting potatoes, which are generally very bad.
