ORIGINA!. CORRESPONDENCE' NEWCASTLE A FREE PORT'; To the Editors of the Maitland Mereuy; GENTLEMEN—The inhabitants of the Hunter River district, if they knew their own interests aright, can not be too eager in forwarding the cause you so ably advocate in your paper, that of making Newcastle a free port. That the sole outlet to a tract of country including several districts, and possessing some of the finest agricultural land in New South Wales—the depot for much of the wool of New England, and, as it will be in future, for much, if not all of the. beef, tallow, and hides of the fertile valleys of the Namoi, Castlereagh, and Barwin rivers, and also the rich plains of Liverpool— that it, the sluice-gate of our wealth, should be debarred the purpose Nature seems to have stamped on it, and meant it for, " a free and independent port," and this on the score of a few paltry hundreds expended in maintaining a custom-house establishment at the port, is a grievance to us, which cannot long, ...

HUNTER RIVER AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY. PLOUGHING MATCH. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 16 March 1844

HUNTER, RIVER AGRICXTI.TTJRAI. SOCIETY. PLOUGHING MATCH. On Tuesday last, pursuant to advertisement, was held the first ploughing match that has ever taken place in the district of the Hunter. It was a day to which doubtless many will here- after look back with pleased and grateful feelings, as the first of a series of trials and matches which will work a vast improvement in the agriculture of the colony. That the event excited a strong feeling of interest in the neighbourhood was evinced by the number of persons who assembled to witness the match, notwithstanding the heavy and continued showers that fell throughout the day. By nine o'clock in the morning, the hour agreed on, the greater part of the ploughs were on the field, though some were delayed till a little later by the wet. One, belonging to Mr. Keppie, did not reach the ground till the match was nearly over, . and consequently was not allowed to compete ; the men, however, were determined to do something after coming so far...

Windeyer, Esq., M.C., in pursuance of advertisement, met his constituents at Cox's Hotel, East Mait- land, for the purpose of giving an account of his stewardship. There was a very limited number of the electors present. C. M. DOYLE, Esq., was called to the chair, and having briefly stated the nature of the meeting, Mr. WINDEYER said that although he had not the pleasure of meeting more than half a dozen of the electors of Durham there, he still considered the practice which he had introduced a wholesome one, inas- much as it brought the representative and his constituents together j and, if only two or three of the electors met him, he would still feel justified in the step he had taken. The fewer persons attended the more was he impressed with the necessity for such a proceeding. The people of the colony must be made acquainted with their own power, and he had come amongst them for that purpose, in...
