Classified Advertising [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 23 March 1844

AD VERTISEM ENT. To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. GENTLEMEN-Although I detest anything that may savour of a puff, excepting always those nice pastry ones formerly sold by Alderman Birch, of Cornhill, yet as I highly approve of the old motto, " Pahnam qui meruit ferat," I cannot avoid doing justice to the public spirit of a townsman of yours, who has so munificently afforded accommodation to all and sundry in the new Court-house. I am sure I can speak not only for myself, but for others of my fellow jurors, who one and all expressed the greatest satisfaction, the whole thing being so much beyond their expectations. At the same time I may mention the very superior accommodations in the eating and drinking way afforded by "mine host." Mr. Mayo's personal appearance shows him to be a bit of a bon vivant, and in good sooth it must be admitted that he not only does justice to his feeding, but well knows how to induce others to do likewise ; and that, too, at so moderate a rate as q...

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 23 March 1844

ORIGINAXi CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. GENTLEMEN-Would you be kind enough to oblige your distant readers with an answer to the following enquiry. A person in business, residing at the township of Gresford, which is thirty miles from the court of requests at Maitland, takes out twenty sum- monses to recover sums varying from £1 to £2 ; under present regulations they will cost him, to have them served upon the parties (perhaps all residing within a circle of five miles) 18s. 9d. each, or £18 15s. altogether, for mileage alone. Can he employ his servant to serve them, and, by having him in court on the day of trial, to swear to the serving, prevent this enormous expense, which eventually falls on the defendant? -Ï am, gentlemen, yours, &c. W. Paterson River, 21st March, 1844. [It appears that a person may employ his servant to serve summonses, as by the 5th rule of the court, published on 22nd December, 1843, it is provided that "upon the return day o...

COMMERCIAL REMARKS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 23 March 1844

COMMERCIAL REMARKS. Business on the whole has been good in Mait- land during the week, and a fair trade has been done for cash. But a small quantity of wool has come down. A good deal of wheat has been brought in to market, of which the greater part was sold, at about an average of 2s. 9d. One or two prime samples realised 3s. 3d., and a small lot, of very poor quality, was sold for Is. per bushel. In barley some business has been done, at Is. 4d. to send to Sydney, and something higher for.home consumption. In maize, hay, and potatoes, we hear of no wholesale purchase. The first two are unsale- j able at almost any price, in consequence of the j abundant grass feed ; and the latter are gene- rally of inferior quality. Vegetables are brought in in great abundance, and of good quality, the kinds being much more varied then of late. Pumpkins are getting plentiful, and green peas, French beans, and parsnips are to be had. Fruit has lessened in variety, but peaches and melons are still ...

MAITLAND CIRCUIT COURT. CIVIL SIDE.—TUESDAY, MARCH 19. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 23 March 1844

MAITLAND CIRCUIT COURT. CIVIL SIDE.-TUESDAY, MARCH 19. Walter Scott, Esq., took the usual oaths as" a magistrate of the territory of New South Wales. (Before the Chief Justice, and J. S. Fernter, and W. F. Gordon, Esquires, assessors.) MACDERMOTT AND OTHERS, TRUSTEES, V. SCOTT. This was an action to recover the sum of £300, brought by the trustees of P. J. Cohen, an insolvent, against Alexander Walker Scott. The Attorney General and Mr. Broadhurst appeared for the plaintiff; Mr. Windeyer for the defendant. ~ The declaration stated that the action was brought for goods sold and delivered, for money paid by Cohen, for horse and carriage hire, board, lodgings, meat, and drink supplied to divers persons, for money due on account stated, and other matters.

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. PUBLIC EDUCATION. To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 23 March 1844

ORIGINA!. CORRESPONDENCE. PUBLIC EDUCATION. To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. GENTLEMEN-From the report of the proceed- ings of the Maitland District Council in the last number of the Mercury, I perceive that the important and difficult subject of public education has been mooted by that body, and Mr. Lang has proposed a series of resolutions on it. However "important the subject may be, I regret that it has been thus prematurely brought forward, and I hope the Council will see the propriety of postponing it for some time longer, as I think it is more than probable that in the ensuing session of the Legislative Council some general principle .which may comprehend the whole colony will be adopted. The Council having, however, mooted the question, it is now a legitimate subject for discussion, and the more fully it is discussed the better. For this reason, I trust you will have the kindness to give these few remarks a place in your journal. The resolutions proposed by Mr. Lang a...

HUNTER RIVER DISTRICT NEWS. [FROM OUR CORRESPONDENTS.] PORT STEPHENS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 23 March 1844

HUNTER. RIVER DISTRICT NEWS. [FROM OUR CORRESPONDENTS.] . PORT STEPHENS. SILOES.-The Australian Agricultural Com- pany have had executed here a work which will doubtless prove of great benefit to us in times of scarcity. On a hill close to the township they have had eight siloes dug out of the solid rock, capable of holding about 1000 bushels each. Three of them, I believe, are now filled with wheat, and the mouths built up. They are dug something of a decanter shape, bricked round inside, and over the month a large stone is placed, which, when the siloe is filled, is fastened in with mortar. They are so arranged on the hill in pairs that a roof can be erected over each two together. The work appears to have been executed with great care, and has been done under the superintendence of Mr. Thomas Ebsworth. Stroud, March l8. NEWCASTLE. DISTRICT COUNCIL. On Tuesday, the 19th instant, the District Council, agreeably to the resolution of the last quarterly meeting that they should meet e...

THE MAITLAND MERCURY. SATURDAY, MARCH 23, 1844. MR. WINDEYER AND HIS CONSTITUENTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 23 March 1844

THE MAITLAND MEBCURY, SATURDAY, MARCH 23, 1844. MR. WINDEYER AND HIS CONSTITUENTS. MR. Windeyer has completed his first annual tour among his constituents. A report of the proceedings at the meeting at~-East Maitland was published in our supplement of Tuesday last, and we regret that we were unable to give our readers more than a very condensed report of the speeches of Mr. Windeyer on that occa- sion. If the number of persons present on Thursday week was a fair criterion of the attendance at Mr. Windeyer's other meetings, it goes strongly to show that the great body of the electors and of the people at large are not yet alive to the duties which have been imposed upon them by the new constitution; and that we much need two or three public men of Mr. Windeyer's stamp to rouse them to a sense of their duty and power. In reviewing the proceedings of the Legislative Council during the late session, Mr. Windeyer confined himself to those measures which more directly concerned this distr...

ST. JOHN'S TOTAL ABSTINENCE SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 23 March 1844

ST. JOHN'S TOTAL ABSTINENCE SOCIETY. Monday last being the festival of St. Patrick, the members of the above society held their quarterly meeting at the "Temple of Concord," West Maitland. At twelve o'clock the members assembled at the Temple, where the President, the Rev. J. T. Lynch, briefly addressed them. They then formed into procession, and, accompanied by a band and the society's banners, walked through the town down to the bridge at Wallis's Creek, and then returned along High-street to the foot of the Long Bridge, and back again to the Temple, where they separated until evening. The Temple of Concord was beautifully fitted up, under the able superintendence of Mr. J. Connor, of High-street, and when lighted in the evening, and the company were seated, had a splendid and imposing appearance, the pillars and rafters having all been coloured, and the roof and platfrom adorned with green boughs and flowers, whilst the banners were tastefully arranged in various parts of the spa...

DINNER TO R. WINDEYER, ESQ., M. C. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 23 March 1844

DINNER TO R. WINDEYER, ESQ., M. C. . On Thursday evening last about thirty gen- tlemen, many of them electors of the county of Durham, sat down lo a most excellent dinner at the Rose Inn, West Maitland, in honor of R. Windeyer, Esq., M.C. The table was laid out ?with great elegance and taste ; the viands, of which there was a profusion, were of the best description, and the wines of a most excellent qualily. Over the chair was placed the motto, " Welcome the man who has proved himself." The fruit placed upon the table was exceedingly fine, particularly the grapes, which were from the vineyard of Mr. Kelman, and were of firstrate quality, both in appearance and flavour. The chair was occupied by Henry Dangar, Esq., supposed on his right by the hon. guest, and on his left by Dr. Scott. The vice chair was occupiei by C. M. Doyle, Esq. After the cloth had been removed, The CHAIRMAN said he would now call upon them for an expression of their loyalty. They were at present reigned over by ...

STEAM NAVIGATION TO MAITLAND. To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 30 March 1844

STEAM NAVIGATION TO MAITLAND. To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. GENTLEMEN-As a citizen of Maitland, and consequently feeling interested in all that con- cerns its welfare, I would crave of your indul- gence a little space in your increasingly useful journal for the purpose of inquiring briefly how it is that a matter which once deeply interested all parties in Maitland has been allowed to "sleep the oblivious sleep of death?" I allude to the subject of steam navigation to Maitland. I am not aware, not having the good fortune to be a shareholder, of the exact amount which has been expended on the steamer " Huntress ;" but I believe it amounts to about £1200-no very inconsiderable sum in these hard times, you will allow. What has become of her ? in the first place. And, in the second place, what is her condition?-is she under the protection of any individual, and, if so, who is it ? And, thirdly, what do the shareholders intend doing with her eventually ? If it be, as some asser...

TOarnuLsro DISTRICT COTCNTCZXU TUESDAY, MARCH 26. Present-The Warden, Messrs. Wyndham, Lang, Innes, Gordon, and Hungerford. DISTRICT COLLECTOR. The first business brought before the Council was the appointment of a collector, for which office nine applications had been sent in. The appointment was made with closed doors. The office was conferred upon Mr. Jeremiah Ledsam. EDUCATION. The WARDEN said when the subject of educa- tion was introduced to their notice on a former occasion he was not prepared to enter upon it, as he never contemplated any change in the existing system: his impression was that the District Councils were not the source from which schemes of education were to proceed; but from the rate payers, from whom the final settlement of the question must be derived. It appeared to him that they had at present little to do but to provide for the salaries of masters for the existing schools, or any similar ones which might be required; and he believed he was borne out when ...
