TO CORRESPONDENTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 25 February 1843

TO CORRESPONDENTS. " Scone."-If our Scone correspondent will refer to the fourth page of our last number he will find an abstract of all the clauses of the Act of -Parliament which relate to the District Councils, and in which the powers which will be entrusted to those councils are defined. With respect to the police of the colony, though each district will be required to pay half the expenses for the support of its own police, there can be no doubt but the entire control of the force will be in the hands of the executive government, precisely in the same manner as in Sydney at the present moment. " Indigenous" and " Americanensis" in our next. We received the communication of "A Set- tler" yesterday. We shall endeavour to make room for it in our next.

THE MAITLAND MERCURY. SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 25, 1843. THE LATE LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 25 February 1843

THE MAITLAND MERCURY, SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 25, 1843. THE LATE LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. It will be seen by the letter of our Sydney correspondent, in another column, that the Legislative Council met on Thursday last, and passed the Electoral District and Corporation Act Amendment Bills, and that then its functions ceased for ever. THE HUNTER RIVER SOCIETY. The first annual meeting of this society will be held in the course of a very few weeks ; and we hope that on that occasion we shall have the gratification of seeing the greater part of the most intelligent and enterprising inhabitants of the district assembled together. The objects for which this society has been instituted are of paramount im- portance ; as they aim at the permanent improvement of agriculture, the devclope- ment of mechanical skill, and the bringing into active operation those latent resources and capabilities of the soil which the fertile district of the Hunter is so well known to possess. The provisional committee of...

THE FLOODS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 25 February 1843

THE FLOODS. During the whole of the last week the rain has been almost unceasing, and from various parts of the country we learn that the overflowing of the creeks has done much mischief. The River Hunter rose at Singleton on Wednesday about   ten feet, but on Thursday morning the rain   having in some degree abated it began to fall, and has gradually been decreasing. The Monday's mail to Singleton did not reach that place until Tuesday about noon; the mail bags were obliged to be carried on horseback from Black Creek, the bridges on the road having been swept away by the floods. The roads are in a most dreadful state, the rains having rendered them almost impassable. Anvil Creek rose upwards of seven feet within an hour, and immense stones from the bridge were carried away by the rapidity of the current. The bridge over Mudie's Creek is entirely washed away, and the descent and rapidity of the torrent is described as being really terrific. It will take som...

THE MOONEY AND BARWIN RIVERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 25 February 1843

THE MOONEY AND BARWIN RIVERS. We have been favoured by C. M. Doyle. Esq., with the following extract of a letter from his son:- " Nurraby, Namoi River, 5th February, 1843. " Messrs. Single and Williams's stockmen are now here, on their way to report that the blacks have killed six of their horses since my last, and driven all the cattle off the Mooney Creek. They went to our hut, and killed Bolen's stock dog after he left. They have now grown so impudent that they sent word to Mr. Eckford's station that they would kill their horses next. It is their intention to kill or drive all the whites with their cattle from the Mooney and Barwin. Mr. Eckford's stockman is now here. I am also informed that the blacks are committing great depredations on the Big River, more particularly on Captain Mayne's station ; the superintendent finds it necessary to send for more men and horses. " I am happy to inform you that all stock here are doing as well as it is possible for cattle and sheep to do, h...

SYDNEY NEWS. [FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT.] Thursday Evening, Feb. 23. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 25 February 1843

SYDNEY NEWS. [FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT.] Thursday Evening, Feb. 23. The Legislative Council met today for the last time, and in order to do honor to the occasion there was a much fuller attendance than usual of the members, all of whom were present, with the exception of the Commander of the Forces, and Sir John Jamison, both of whom were laboring under severe indisposition. The bu- siness of the day was introduced by the Governor presenting a despatch from the Secretary of State for the Colonies, offering the Bishop of Australia the choice of either accepting or refusing a seat in the new legislature; and a communication from that prelate, addressed to himself, declining the privilege. In producing these documents, his Excellency made a long speech, expressive of his high sense of the important services rendered by the Bishop, during the time he had been a member of that Council, more especially as chairman of the immigration committee. His Lordship then rose, and after some general ...

BRITISH EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 25 February 1843

BRITISH EXTRACTS, The Bank of England.-The Bank of Eng- land has now upwards of ten million of bullion in her coffers, whilst her circulation is only twenty millions. When the affairs of this bank were under consideration a few years ago, it was   stated that she ought always to have a sum equal to one third of her circulation by her; instead of this, however, she has frequently had not two millions by her, when her circulation was from eighteen to nineteen millions. Now,   on the other hand, she has the, amount of one half of her circulation by her in bullion. What her object is in thus increasing her bullion has not been stated; but we have no doubt that some great financial operation is in contempla- tion. There is no doubt from the fact of the exchanges being in our favour, that our exports exceed our imports ; but we agree with the Standard that "this leads to another conclu- sion, not satisfactory, namely, that the cause of that steady preponderance i...

UPPER HUNTER. THE ELECTION.—PUBLIC MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 25 February 1843

UPPER HUNTER. THE ELECTION.-PUBLIC MEETING. A very numerous meeting of the in- habitants of the county of Brisbane was held in the court house, Scone, on Friday, the 17th instant, for the purpose of taking into consideration the propriety of calling upon a candidate to represent the counties of Brisbane, Bligh, and Hunter, in the new Legislative Council. On the motion of Mr. S. Coxen, seconded by Mr. John Bingle, J. A. Robertson, Esq., was called to the chair. Mr. ROBERTSON, in taking the chair, said that in the first place he had to return thanks for the honor they had done him, of which he was fully sensible, and he thought he should best appreciate it by performing the duties of chairman to the best of his ability. He thought he was bound to explain to them the reason why the meeting was called. He was lately waited upon by several respectable parties interested in the welfare of the district, who were not satisfied with Captain Scott, the gentleman who had come forward, to repre...

To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 25 February 1843

To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. GENTLEMEN-Seeing by your paper of the 18th that we are likely to be inundated by a series of futile letters such as Americanensis signs No. 1, and knowing how little interest your readers in general take in such writers, it has occurred to me that for the public good, and for your good, it would be well to lay bare the real objects and feelings of Americanensis, which are by every means in his power to deceive the electors of Maitland; and by throwing the first   stone he wishes to ward off the disgrace of having been a promoter of that disgraceful scene which lately took place at Newcastle. (By the bye, gentlemen, can you inform me where the reporter of the Sydney Morning Herald was when this meeting took place?) Now, gentlemen, were there no other reason why Mr. A. W. Scott is an unfit person to repre- sent these boroughs, I hold that his implied sanction of such scenes as took place at New- castle renders him an unfit person fo...

MAITLAND RACES. To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 25 February 1843

MAITLAND RACES. To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. GENTLEMEN-The season for racing in this, as in every other district of the colony where annual races are established, being now ap- proaching, it behoves the friends of the Turf in this neighbourhood to be drawing to their post. A requisition has already been made by a mem- ber of the Jockey Club to their President, at the request of several friends of the Turf, to call a meeting, for the purpose of promoting the races for the current year; but, strange to say, that gentleman has refused to do so, on the ground that, in his opinion, "under existing circum- stances it would be injudicious" Now, we are sure that our president cannot have arrived at this conclusion from the condition of his own circumstances, and though we are willing to grant extensive latitude to his discernment, yet it is thought rather dictatorial to assume so much without having taken the sense of the public. For my own part, as the author of these remarks, a...

COLONIAL INTELLIGENCE. PORT PHILLIP. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 25 February 1843

COLONIAL INTELLIGENCE.   PORT PHILLIP. Messrs. Were, of Melbourne, have re- ceived advices from Mr. Besnard, of Cork, that ten vessels with emigrants are to be successively dispatched from that city to Port Phillip ; the first vessel is expected to arrive very shortly, and " notwithstand- ing the depression of the times" says the Gazette, " they will find plenty of employ- ment, cheerful homes, and encouraging remuneration." The dam across the head of the Yarra Yarra is now so far complete, that a dry foot passage may be made at any time across the river. Mr. Rutledge, of Parramatta, and Mr. Thos. Wills, are spoken of as likely to con- test the borough of Melbourne with Mr. Curr. The candidates for the district are Dr. Nicholson, Dr. Thompson of Geelong, and the Rev. Dr. Lang, Messrs. Hawdon, Walker, Ebden, and James Macarthur, jun. A large fresh water lake, abounding with fish and wild fowl, has been dis- covered by Mr. Edgar, of the Second River, at the distance of ab...

HUNTER RIVER DISTRICT NEWS. [FROM OUR CORRESPONDENTS.] WOLLOMBI. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 25 February 1843

HUNTER RIVER DISTRICT NEWS. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENTS.] WOLLOMBI. THE WEATHER, FLOOD, &c.—During the past week it has rained almost incessantly. On the evening of Monday the waters of the Wollombi, and its tributary, the Watagan, sud- denly overflowed their banks, and inundated all the cultivated and low lands, sweeping away in their course fences, stacks of grain, &c, and driving many of the inhabitants from their dwellings to higher ground for security. The full extent of the mischief done by the flood cannot as yet be ascertained, except the loss of the maize crop, which is considered certain. THE WOUNDED BUSHRANGER.—On Wednesday evening the bushranger, Patrick Bruen, breathed his last, after a week's suffering from the time he received the gunshot wounds that caused his death. The neglected situation of this man, and the repulsive appearance which he pre- sented during his last days of misery, tempts us to inquire what person had charge of him in his last illn...

To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 4 March 1843

To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. Gentlemen-I shall feel obliged by your premising my article No. 2 (which you have promised to insert in your next publication) with the subjoined remarks, called forth by your cor- respondent "True Blue."-Americanensis. " Gratiano speaks an infinite deal of nothing, more than any other man in all Venice. The reasons are, as two grains of wheat hid in two bushels of chaff, you shall seek all day before you find them, and when you have them they are not worth an old oil rag."-Shakspeare. The above quotation, gentlemen, so fully ap- plies to your sapient correspondent, " True   Blue," in last week's Mercury, that but few words are necessary on my part in reply to this abortion of his political and literary throes. He says his object is to lay "bare" Ameri- canensis —I suppose that is some allusion to the " Ursa Major ; " then, he wants to " deceive the electors of Maitland"—that means he wants them to think True Blue an able critic. ...

To tlie Independent Electors of tîie Borougrbs of East and "West Maitland and Newcastle. i ENTLEMEN-In presenting myself as a HT Candidate for the honour of your sup- port at the approaching Election, I consider it proper to give you an outline of my principles. I am a friend to civil and religious liberty, and an enemy to all intolerance. I am for diffusing the blessings of education as widely as possible amongst the people. I am for the most rigid economy in every department of the government. I shall co-operate with the friends of the country in endeavouring to get rid of the civil list, and to establish the right of appropriating as well as of raising the public revenue. This endeavour failing, I shall contend that the territorial revenue be conceded" to us as an equivalent, on the same principle as it has been conceded in Canada- Seeing that the district councils created by the new Act of Parliament will entail a heavy local expenditure on the country districts, for improvement...

APPREHENSION OF A BUSHRANGER. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 4 March 1843

APPREHENSION OF A BUSHRANGER. On Monday morning last, about half-past four o'clock, as Mr. Henry Smith, the lockup keeper at Black Creek, was coming from thence to Maitland on horseback, he saw from the top of Harpur's Hill a loaded waggon stuck fast in the middle of the road at the foot of the hill, in consequence of the wet state of the weather. On approaching it a little nearer he discovered that there was a black fellow upon the top of it apparently on the look out. This circumstance excited a suspicion that all was not right, and he immediately galloped towards the waggon. When within about forty rods of it, a man jumped from under it, took the fence, and made for the adjoining bush as speedily as possible. When Smith came up to the waggon he asked for the driver, but received no reply from the black, but on repeating the question the other pointed underneath the waggon, and on looking there Smith saw the driver apparently asleep. He shook the man and enquired who the man was t...
