SYDNEY NEWS. WHOLESALE PRICES OF COLONIAL FARM AND DAIRY PRODUCE IN THE SYDNEY MARKET, DURING THE PRESENT WEEK. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 20 April 1844

SYDWETT NEWS. WHOLESALE PRICES OF,COLONIAL FARM AND DAIRY PRODUCE IN THE SYDNEY MARKET, DURING THE PRESENT WEEK. "WHEAT.-The market still continues glutted, but not quite, so bad as last week, several lots having been bought up by the bakers and others for grinding themselves. Colonial wheat is selling from 2s. 6d. to 3s. for best samples. FLOUR is selling at ¿£11 at the principal mills, but the small millers are offering it at £10 per ton. CAPE BARLEY is' still selling, but only realising Is. per bushel. ENGLISH BARLEY.-This article is in demand by one of the maisters, who is offering 3 s. 6d. for very prime samples, which it must be, or it will not do. I have now two or three lots in store of English malting barley, but cannot obtain any price for it, being rather a pinched grain, other- wise they are samples of a clean and bright color. I particularly mention this, as a caution to parties sending any to market, as tiiey must not expect to realise that price unless for the very pr...

BANK NOTE FRAUD. On Friday morning, the 12th instant, Mr. Wood, the chief constable, received information of a man's being about the town leaving clipped notes, and changing £1 notes for £5 notes. Mr. Wood made some enquiries about the town, but though the man had been described to him, be could hear nothing,of him till the evening, when he heard that he 'had been over- heard a day or two previous making enquiries as to where Mr. Stilsby lived. The chief constable immediately went to Mr. Stilsby's, and asked if he knew suck a man as he described, and Mr. S. told him such a person was then lodging with him, but he had gone out ; adding that his things were in the house, and Mr. Wood could go in and see them, Mr. S. being at the time in the stable. The' chief constable went in, but found no person in the house, and came out again, leaAing constable Pritchard in the house, while he concealed himself outside. Between 7 and 8 o'clock he saw the man described to him coming from the street...

HUNTER RIVER DISTRICT NEWS. [FROM OUR CORRESPONDENTS.] DUNGOG. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 20 April 1844

BOTTTEB. RZVE8. DISTRICT DTSVS. [FROM OUR CORRESPONDENTS.] DUNGOG. MAN FOUND DROWNED.-Last Sunday evening Mr. George Lane having gone down to bathe in the William, observed the body of a man float- ing, and gave information to the chief constable, who went and got out the body. Decomposition   had proceeded so far that it was impossible to recognise the features, but in the pocket was found a ticket of leave for Thomas Grace in the district of Dungog, who had not been seen for about three weeks, but whose absence had not excited surprise, having been of a roving disposition. An investigation was held before T. Cook, Esq., and the body examined by Dr. M'Kinlay, who found a fracture in the skull, but nothing was elicited to show how the deceased met with his death. It was supposed he must have thrown himself from a bank near where the body was found. The ticket of leave holders in the neighbourhood have raised a subscription, and intend to inter the body very decently. Th...

To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 20 April 1844

To tJie Editors of the Maitland Mercury, GENTLEMEN-I have lately had my attention drawn to the melancholy fact of so many acci- dents occurring at sea in wool ships from fire, caused by combustion of wool shipped in an improper state. That combustion may be the primary cause of such accidents I am not prepared exactly to disprove, but that wool of itself will not blaze, is, I believe, an acknowledged fact. These premises being allowed, I should wish to ask through your journal a few queries, as I think it may be the best method to arrive at the trnth. 1. If wool is shipped damp, and combustion arises in consequence, are not the flames assisted to a very great extent by the inflammable mate- rials of which the imported wool bale is com- posed? 2. Can wool packs not be made from refuse and dirty wool at nearly the same price as now paid for hempen ones ? 3. Would not the " woollen pack" assist mate- rially in preventing the spread of fire in the ships? 4. Would it not be a saving to t...

ETCCaXSH ÏÎEW3. . * By the arrival of H. M. S. Thalia, 42 ,guns> from Bombay, 13th February,1 English news hast been received to the 6th January. We abstract the following from the Sydney journals. The, news' from Ireland was not so exciting as lately The Counsel -for Mr. O'connell had been again successful in gaining trifling delays, and it was considered problematical whether the trial would- commence on the day appointed. At a dinner given in Limerick to Mr. Smith. O'Brien, Mr. O'connell was reported to' 'have made a 'declaration that an offer had been made to ghe up the prosecution, or at any rate to hold him harmless, if he would abandon, the repeal, and that he indignantly refused. The Queen and Royal Family were well. . Her Majesty had rnet-with a slight accident while driving at Windsor with tile Marchioness of Douro, but neither w^re in any way injured.' Trade continued to improve, and the wool market was firm. The abstract of the revenue had been »published, and the rev...

COMMERCIAL REMARKS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 20 April 1844

. COMMERCIAL REMARKS. A very tolerable amount of business has been done in Maitland again this week, in great part for cash. The amount of wool brought down has been rather under the average of the last two months. But a small quantity of business has been done in wheat, the deliveries being in part merely in accordance with old bargains. The price has varied a good deal, some of inferior quality having been purchased at less than 2s., while w e were shown one very superior lot which fetched 3s. 9d. In maize we hear of one purchase of 150 bushels at 10d., cash, another lot at 8d. (weovil eaten), and an offer of 2000 bushels at 9d., which was not concluded. Barley may be quoted at Is. 6d. to 2s. 6d., but little has been transacted in it. Hay has been offering at 30s., but we did not hear of a purchase. ' Potatoes are very plentiful and good, and sell from 3s. to 5s. Other vegetables are brought to market in fair quantity, and are mostly good. Sweet potatoes, of good quality, were sel...

THE MAITLAND MERCURY. SATURDAY, APRIL 20, 1844. THE MEETING ON TUESDAY NEXT. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 20 April 1844

. -a ??^.,,.t ; E*J' 'ff f ÄiTURDAYf^PRIL 20, 1844. -. ""THE MEETING ON TUESDAY NEXT. ?JOîE stockholders and other inhabitants of "the district, in the discussion of the new .squatting regulations on Tuesday next, will have the advantage of their Sydney brethren. " Time has been allowed for the first ahgryfeeling to subside, and it may therefore be expected that those who take part in the proceedings will come to the task in a cool and reflecting spirit. Although there was considerable ability displayed at the Sydney meeting, some of the speakers seemed to take it too much foi; granted that all the colonists were as 'well -'satisfied as themselves of the harsh- ness and impolicy of the new regulations ; and that"therefore it was quite unnecessary to prove what they asserted. Others, again, in their anxiety to show that the squatters could not bear additional bur- thens, endeavoured to prove too much, forgetting that their statements of the unproductive character of our chief pur- su...

To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 20 April 1844

To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. GENTLEMEN-I beg to offer you a few remarks on the want of a law for the suppression of unqualified medical and surgical practitioners. They have been prompted by hearing the evi- dence at the inquest on the body of the child Dunn, who was, as far as human reasoning can teach, another victim to the want of the above mentioned law. When will they who have the power of pre- venting such occurrences be satisfied ? In your columns they have been already warned of the extent of the evil. Like the gods of heathen mythology, they will not be satisfied but by whole hecatombs : I cannot help declaring that, in my opinion, the blood of these hecatombs will lie at their door. They cannot excuse them- selves on the plea of ignorance ; every one who reads the papers must see the accounts of these cases. They know that the governments of all the old countries have long ago been obliged to make laws for the protection of their people from the ravages of these...

To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 20 April 1844

To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. GENTLEMEN-In your paper of the 6th instant appears a letter, under the signature of " Guar- dian," on the interesting subject of public education. The writer proposes a scheme which <Jie seems to think ought to be agreeable to all, but there is an air of sad civility in his manner a sort of irrépressible consciousness that the bantling of his fancy is stripped of its fair proportions and choicest features, and is intended to minister to the prejudices of a few, rather than to satisfy the requirements of all. He seems to feel that he is making reluctant con- cessions to illiberal prejudices. And, not con- tent with recommending his plan on its own merits, he has recourse to considerations which justify only what it might 7iave been, considera- tions, too, which are controverted, despised, and inappreciable by that section of the community he professes to conciliate. He has trimmed his little vessel as if to catch the breeze of popula...

CROWN LAND COMMISSIONERS. To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 20 April 1844

CROWN LAND COMMISSIONERS. To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. GENTLEMEN-The indifference of the present "Governor to the interests of the squatter is too well Itnown to need any comment of mine ; but why this indifference should descend to the Commissioners, men who are paid out of the public treasury for the performance of duties which require their whole time and attention, I do not understand. I hear many objections made to the present system of Commissioners. It is said, "The districts are too large, more than one commis ?sioner can attend to; also, "The power of the Commissioners is too arbitrary, and an appeal from their decision generally inefficacious." But I say, what we have to complain of most is that we can rarely or ever find these petty princes at home. A squatter mounts his horse, and, as it has happened to me, after riding perhaps 200 miles or more, is told on arriving that the Com- missioner is not at home, and it is not known when he is expected to return, and ...

EXECUTION OF VALE AND MARY THORNTON AT NEWCASTLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 20 April 1844

EXECUTION OF VALE AND MARY THORNTON AT NEWCASTLE. On Wednesday last, the 17th instant, the extreme penalty of the law was carried into execution at Newcastle upon Joseph Vale, aged 30, and Mary Thornton, aged between 20 and 21, convicted at the late criminal court held at Maitland of the murder by poison of John Thornton, the husband of the latter. Both prisoners had been regularly visited for spiritual instruction since their condemnation by the Rev. C. Pleydell N. Wilton, M.A., chaplain of the gaol ; and the female prisoner had received daily the unremitting attention of Mrs. Field, the wife of the governor of the gaol. To her, on Monday evening last, Mary Thornton made a full confession of her crime ; and after Mr. Keck, the acting sheriff, had read to her in the condemned cell her death warrant, on Tuesday, there appeared to the chaplain that a visible change for the better had taken place in her mind. With regard to her partner in crime, in the presence of the Rev. W. Stack (wh...

The battle of Maharajpoor, between 18,000 Mahrattas with 100 guns, and 14,000 British, with 40 guns, under the Commander-in-chief and the Governor General, was hotly contested for three hours, but completely won by the British.
