SYDNEY NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 6 April 1844

SYDNEY HEWS. FIRE.-About one o'clock on Thursday morn- ing the inhabitants of Bathurst-street were alarmed by the cry of fire, and on the matter being searched into it was found to have originated in the carelessness of some men in the employ of Messrs. Brodie and Craig, who had left a lighted pipe or ignited cigar in the sawpit, by which means the fire was com- municated to the combustible materials around. But for timely assistance, there is little doubt but that the whole of the property, worth between £4000 and £5000, would have been destroyed. BANK OF AUSTRALIA.-A special general meeting of the shareholders of this bank was held on Wednesday, the 27th March, for the purpose of making a second call, when it was suggested that before any further calls were made the whole of the property on which the bank held securities should be sold. To this it was replied that the property was in fact the property of the bank, and that to force it into the market would injure the bank, and it ...

COMMERCIAL REMARKS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 6 April 1844

COMMERCIAL REMARKS. There has been but little business doing in Maitland during the past week. Very little wool has come down. Scarcely any wheat has been this week brought into town, and what little has been sold has realised prices similar to those obtained last week. The price of flour remains stationary, though the bakers have lowered bread a penny in the 4 lb loaf, which is now generally selling for 6d. In maize and barley very little has been done ; the price of maize remains without-alteration. We have heard of one lot of English barley, consisting of a few bushels, being purchased at a shilling a bushel cash. Potatoes remain at about the same price ; the supply continues good. Vegetables have undergone no alteration in price ; the quality still continues good, and the supply plentiful. Fruit has undergone no alteration; and all kinds of dairy produce remain without change.

BRITISH EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 6 April 1844

BRITISH EXTRACTS. THE MOTION OF VESSELS QAUSED BY WAVES, APPLIED AS A MOTIVE POWER.-A power which has long been vaguely known to exist, but the idea of ever bringing into use never appears to have been even thought of, is just now being brought under notice, by Y. A. Eizler, Esq., who by means of some very simple machinery has made the alternating perpendicular motion through the water. To perceive how this power can be brought into action, it is necessary to know, that to whatever height a wave rises, it has no effect on the calm of the water below, further than at a depth equal to its height, and hence it is easy to render the power of waves efficient, by offering them a resistance. For the propulsion of a vgssel, this resistance is obtained by connecting a sort of platform placed beneath, the undulation of the waves, with the vessel float- ing in them ; at both ends of this platform, and brought up each side of the vessel, are strong connecting rods, attached to arms working on a...

WOULD A CORN LAW BENEFIT THE COLONY? To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 6 April 1844

WOULD A CORN LAW BENEFIT THE COLONY? To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. GENTLEMEN-Some of the Sydney journals, I perceive, are everard tnonrecommending the enactment of a com law for the protection of agriculture. As there is no question upon which there exists a greater diversity of opinion, and certainly none which more directly bears upon, the interests of the community at large, perhaps you will afford space in your columns ter the expression of some opinions on the subject, which, although neither uniformly correct, nor, it maybe, in unison with your own, may lead to a discussion whieh cannot fail to be useful and instructive. The reasons urged in favour of a corn law, as far as I have been able to collect them, appear to be : first, to enable the colony to feed its own people, and ensure a constant and cheap supply of grain : indepen- dent of foreign supplies ; secondly, to prevent the-abstraction of our circulating medium in payment for foreign .produce ; and, thirdly, t...

'gof^-* íyj-^Kgg TBE^yfAITLAÎiD MEKCÏÏEY, % ' SATURDAY, APRIL 6, 1844. HUNTER RIVER AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY. FROM an advertisement in another column it will be seen that the above society intend holding their first annual show on Tuesday,, the 14th May next. The prizes to he given on the occasion consist entirely of medals. We believe that money prizes would have given more general satisfaction, and it was the wish of the committee to have given the prizes in money, but the scarcity of the circulating medium in the pockets of our agricultural population at the present time has sensibly affected the means of the society, and the committee ïiave been unwillingly compelled to defer the realisation of their wishes until next year, when they hope to be a*ble to offer prizes more worthy of the first agricultural district in the colony* From the same cause, several prizes have been withdrawn for the present year ; and, amongst others, those for oßve oil, pickled olives, raisins, and dried fig...

INQUEST AT NEWCASTLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 6 April 1844

INQUEST AT NEWCASTLE. On Thursday last an inquest was held at New- castle, before J. S. Parker, Esq., coroner, on the body of Rebecca Dunn, an infant, aged l8 months, who had died on the previous day, and, as was supposed, through the injudicious medical treat- ment of a man named Peter Rosario, a Lascar. From the evidence of the child's mother it appeared that the deceased had been ailing about four months, and had been under the medical attendance of Dr. Bowker; but that she was continually wasting away, and about six weeks ago Dr. Bowker said he had no hopes of her recovery, as she was affected with the liver complaint. He recommended oatmeal, arrow- root, and beef tea, which food the child would not take, and still continued to waste away. The mother was recommended to call in the assist- ance of Peter Rozario, which she did, and informed him that Dr. Bowker said the child was labouring under the liver complaint. He ordered the flannels in which the child was wrapped to be remov...

WINE MAKING. To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 13 April 1844

WINE MAKING. To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. GENTLEMEN-I perceive that in one of your late numbers you have a critiqne on a work on wine making. I have not seen the -work, hut perhaps the following explanation of the latest improvements'on the art maybe acceptable to some of your readers, ?> - -, > It was formerly the custom, and is still com- mon, to make wine in large open vats. Must during its fermentation throws off an immense quantity of carbonic acid gas ; this gas carries with it a considerable portion of the alcohol, and a certain volatile oil which we term the aroma ; and not less than thirty per cent of the entire liquid is altogether lost. For some years back the attention of scientific men has been much occupied with the subject, and the system which I am about to explain has been invented by Mr. Burel, and has now for some years been put in practice with the greatest success. By the use of a few simple tubes, which any body can make and manage, there is a ...

NEWCASTLE A FREE PORT. To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 13 April 1844

NEWCASTLE A FREE PORT. To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. GENTLEMEN-As you have invariably taken in hand to advocate the cause of Newcastle, and pointed out some of the advantages which would arise to the whole of the district of the Hunter were Newcastle made a free warehousing port, I have ventured to pen a few lines respecting this little town, in the hope you will not refuse them insertion. Some more able hand than mine might very easily be found to take up the subject, and while there are so many influential and highly educated settlers connected with the district, the apathy that prevails is almost aston- ishing. They appear to be unacquainted with their own wants, and ignorant of what would be for their benefit. It is not sufficient that New- castle should alone take upon itself the business of memorialising the government ; the whole district should rise up in a body, and through their District Councils argne the point, and petition, and re-petition the government. Whil...
