"OUT OF EVIL COMETH GOOD." Messrs. Editors of the Maitland Mercury. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 27 April 1844
"OUT OF EVIL COMETH GOOD." Messrs. Editors of the Maitland Mercury, DEAR FRIENDS-Mr. Necessity is a stern teacher, no doubt, but still it must be admitted that many useful and salutary lessons are incul- cated in the school of adversity, over which thai gentleman presides. In the high and palmy period of our colonial prosperity (falsely so called), many of the precepts and maxims taught by him, however, were very sceptically received, and by some indeed Mr. Necessity was regarded as a teacher not only of inferior capa- city, but as an individual who broached doctrines of a hurtful and pernicious tendency ; but being firmly persuaded that he had "truth on his side," and calling to mind that the great and good in all ages had been subject to the same treatment in this respect, he "stuck to his text," and has at length lived to witness the triumph of the great principles he has so long advocated. It may be mentioned, Messrs. Editors, as one of the leading features of this gentleman's p...

THE MAITLAND MERCURY. SATURDAY, APRIL 27, 1844. NEW SQUATTING REGULATIONS.—THE MEETING ON TUESDAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 27 April 1844
THE MAITLAND MEECUEY, ^SATURDAY, APRIL 27, 1844. T!ÎEW SQUATTING REGULATIONS.-THE MEETING 'ON TUESDAY. THE meeting on 'Tuesday was not so numerously attended as some we have witnessed in Maitland, but a large pro- portion of the landed proprietors, and most of the influential men in the district, were present. There was a little delay in ^commencing the business, owing to the want of timely preliminary arrangement ; otherwise the meeting passed off very satisfactorily. The whole of the resolutions were passed without dissent. A full report of the proceedings mil be found in our Supplement of this úay. Although we are opposed to the new regu- lations, the grounds on which we are opposed to,them are different to and somewhat at variance with those taken by the speakers on Tuesday. Tile chief point of difference is, that they regard 'the increase in the license fees as an increase of taxation, while we regard it as an increase-cer- tainly an-ill-timed, unjust, and impolitic one in the ...

NEWCASTLE A FREE PORT. PUBLIC MEETING AT NEWCASTLE. On Monday last a public meeting was held at the court-house, Newcastle, for the purpose of memoralizing the government on the subject of making Newcastle a free warehousing port. There were present about two hundred of the most respectable inhabitants of the town and district. J. REID, Esq., having been called to the chair briefly stated the object of the meeting, and requested that those interested in the welfare of the town and district would proceed to the discussion of the subject with calmness and deliberation. He wished to impress on all present the great importance of the subject, and the great saving that would be made to the district. He had calculated that in every 1000 &nbsp; tons of tallow exported from the district £1000 would be saved. This was only one export, but it would give an idea of the importance of the boon they were seeking for from the government. Mr. W. BROOKS, in proposing the first resolu- tion (...

On the 7th the French landed about 500 men, and two field pieces; they marched to Queen Pomare's house, hauled down her flag, hoisted the French flag, and gave three cheers.

Admiral Dupetit Thouars offered Queen Pomare 10,000 dollars a year to resign the island in favour of the King of the French, which she refused, ...
