PORT PHILLIP. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 13 April 1844
PORT PHIXUP. LAKE HINDMARSH.-A party of gentlemen, lately proceeded in the direction of the locality assigned by the gentlemen who first disvovered Lake Hindmarsh as the position of that lake,, but the existence of which has been since doubted, and there they were agreeably surprised to behold an immense sheet of fresh water, and an extensive tract of fine country running back from its shores in all directions. The lake is about north-west from Portland, near the Murray, and far within the South Australian territory. 'AU accounts confirm the belief that instead of a barren desert, as has been supposed,, lying on ~the eastern boundaries of South Australia, ä fine country remains to be explored. -Portland* Mercury.

SYT>NSrr IÍBWS. WHOLESALE PRICES OF COLONIAL FARM AND DAIRY PRODUCE IN THE SYDNEY MARKET, DURING THE PRESENT WEEK. "WHEAT.-I regret that a further decline has taken place in the price of wheat, on account of the large importations during tile week, and which are of very good quality for the millers : it is in consequence almost impossible to sell any colonial wheat, unless of the very best samples, which are selling at 3s per bushel, and inferior samples from 2s 3d to 2s 9a. FLOUS has also fallen to £10 per ton for the first quality, and a further decline is expected. MAIZE has been rather scarce during the week, owing to the contrary winds preventing the arrival of several of the coasting vessels, hut old maize is worth Is 4d to Is Od; a few lots of very prime have fetched Is 7d to Is 8d. OATS continue to realise Is 9d to Ss per bushel. CAPE BARLEY still sells in small quantities for sowing, at Is 6d to Is 8d per bushel of 52 lbs. ENGLISH BARLEY, of good malting quality, is sale...

SELECT POETRY. ARE THEY ONLY DREAMS? [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 13 April 1844
SEI.ECT POETRY. ARE THEY ONLY DREAMS Î To look on this earth with a hopeful eye, When shadowy clouds appear; To pity the heart that in sorrow dwells, But to look beyond the tear; To murmur a gentle, soothing song "Where grief chaunts her low lament, And to pour the soft light of gladness In ' . On the soul in sorrow bent : If these be dreams, 'tis like the ray '- - That lights the streamlet on its way ! To look on the poorest aud lowliest Z That pitying Heaven has made, " > " And to see a holy light within * Which no earthly dross can shade; " - ' ' " To feel that its hours of joy or grief > -. Are marked by a watchful eye, As the lowliest leaf shares the dew of heaven -'&%.**:. And the light of the cloudless sky : ' *'"'.''

MAITLAND QUARTER SESSIONS. TUESDAY, APRIL 9, 1844. (Before W. M. Manning, Esq., Chairman, Captain Day, &nbsp; W. Knox Child, and J. Brown, Esqrs.) William Charlock was indicted for stealing five ducks and a hen, the property of Mary Dawson, at Maitland, on the 3rd January last. It appeared that the ducks originally belonged to Mr. W. Simpson, and the eggs had been taken away by the prosecutrix, Mary Dawson, from Simpson's premises, and the prisoner had fetched away the ducks from Dawson's house, by order of Mr. Simpson, who positively swore that he had never given Dawson any authority to remove them from his premises, but that they were in fact stolen by her. Upon this evidence the jury returned a verdict of not guilty, and the prisoner was discharged. James M'Ginn was indicted for embezzling the sum of £5, the property of his employer, Michael John Davies, at Newcastle, on the 1st June, 1842. A second count charged him with stealing the £5.

THE MAITLAND MEECURY[?] SATURDAY, APRIL 13, 1844. MAITLAND DISTRICT ELECTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 13 April 1844
THE MAITLAND MEECTJKY, SATURDAY, APRIL 13, 184*. "MAITLAND DISTRICT ELECTION* IN nominating the Councillors for this district his Excellency the .Governor se- lected them entirely from the country gentlemen. The inhabitants of the towns very naturally and justly felt aggrieved at this, as they form about one-half of the population of the district, and will in all probability have to contribute in about the same proportion to the local revenue. Although they considered the selection a judicious one, so far as the qualifications of the members generally were concerned, they regarded it as faulty in not com ^-¡^prising any representatives of the com "' mercial interests of the district. The \ townspeople in the course of a few weeks will have an opportunity of supplying the deficiency, and we trust they will exert themselves to return two well qualified men to represent them in the District Council. The property quali- fication will act as a bar to some of our most eligible men being e...

HUNTER RIVER DISTRICT NEWS. [FROM OUR CORRESPONDENTS.] PORT STEPHENS. TOBACCO. - The crop of tobacco in this dis- trict this season will be far below expectations. In short, it may be said to have completely failed. THE BLACKS. - Great hostilities have long existed and still exist among the different tribes of the aborigines in this quarter, to the great annoyance of the authorities, and continual jeopardy on the part of the natives. Some few nights back a body of blacks from the Dungog and Gloucester tribes came to a camp of the Stroud and Booral tribes in the dead hour of the night, and having first fired a gun to awaken and alarm/ immediately discharged a volley of musketry and spears into the camp, and killed one man and wounded five others, among whom was a woman and a boy. This is the eighth murder committed by these savages within the last five months, nor is it likely to end with this. Orders have been given by the magistrates to the police to disarm all the natives found wi...
