THE MAITLAND MEECUEY. SATURDAY, APRIL 27, 1844. MAITLAND DISTRICT ELECTION. AT the meeting on Wednesday last three more gentlemen were introduced to public notice as candidates for the vacancies in the District Council, namely, Mr. Healy, Mr. Doyle, and Mr. Keddie. A report of the proceedings on the occasion, as full as circumstances would permit tis to give, will be found in our fourth page. As the election will take place befoie our next publication, we feel it a duty to offer our opinion of the merits of the respective candidates ; and in doing so we will take them in the order in which they came before the public. Of Mr. Portus's qualifications for the office we have already expressed a favorable opinion. Our opinion as regards his fitness for the office remains unchanged ; but we were certainly disappointed that he did not meet the electors on Wednesday, to enter more at large into his views upon district matters-and we have no doubt, from the result of the show of hands, that ...

NOMINATION OF DISTRICT COUNCILLORS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 11 May 1844
aroMcno'ATiozr OF DISTRICT COXTKTCII.I.ORS. On Tuesday last a meeting of the electors of Maitland was held at the Dis- trict Council chamber, East Maitland, for the purpose of nominating two candidates to fill the vacancies occasioned by the retirement of Captain Hungerford and W. F. Gordon, Esq. There was a large number of the electors assembled, and The WARDEN, E. C. Close, Esq., hav- ing taken the chair, said they were assem- bled that day to put in force that part of the charter of incorporation of the district contained in the 7th, 8th, and 9th clauses. Some doubts had been raised as to whether there should be a writ issued by the Governor, but both the Act of Parliament and the charter were silent on that point, and unless the Legislative Council should at some future time regulate the matter, he supposed it would remain as at present, and they would meet, as a matter of course, without any writ at all. Considering, therefore, that the meeting was legally ?constituted, he woul...
BRITISH EXTRACTS. RIGHTS OF WOMAN IN THE UNITED STATES.— [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 11 May 1844
BRITISH EXTRACTS. RIGHTS OF WOMAN IN THE UNITED STATES. The Senate of the State of Tennessee have passed a law to secure to married women the right in, and enjoyment of, their own property. It pro- vides that a wife shall have the same undisturbed control of her own estate after marriage which she had before. It prevents her property from passing out of her hands, on marriage, by mere operation of law without her consent. WRONGS OP WOMAN.-The militia law of Rhode Island does not exempt females from performing military duty, and several have been arrested and confined for disobeying the said law. «. POLICE FOR CHINA.-It is the intention of the Government to send out twelve inspectors of police and twelve privates to the island of Hong- kong, the general corps to be selected from the natives there. The inspectors are to be allowed £400 per annum. DISPUTE WITH MEXICO.-There is a rumour in the city, which seems pretty well accredited, that the varied disputes with Mexico, both on commer...

COMMERCIAL REMARKS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 11 May 1844
COMMERCIAL REMARKS. Very little business has been this week transacted in Maitland, scarcely any produce whatever having been brought in, which may probably be accounted for by the rain which fell in the early part of the week having caused the farmers to be busy with their -«heat sowing. Neither maize, barley, or wheat have under- gone the slightest alteration in price; but scarcely any "sales have been this week effected. Dairy produce is without alteration. In the vegetable market the -supply still continues abundant, and the quality has been somewhat improved by the late rain. There has been no change in the price, except in potatoes, which appear to have a slight tendency downwards, the best Derwent seed potatoes being now sold at 4s. per cwt. Fruit is becoming very scarce, and with the exception of oranges, the quality is not generally good. Quinces are quite out. The late peaches are selling ot from 1-Jd. to 2d. per dozen.

THE MAITLAND MEBCUKY. SATURDAY, MAY 11, 1844. NEWCASTLE A FREE PORT. ÍON Monday next a public meeting will be held at the Northumberland Hotel, to petition the Governor to recommend that Newcastle be declared a free port. A copy of the resolutions and petition to be submitted to the meeting will be found in our supplement of this day» "We most earnestly press upon all who "are interested in the welfare of the district "to render their cordial assistance in carry- ing out the important object which the meeting of Monday is intended to promote. The district has already passed the point at which the boon ought to have been conceded; and its inhabitants will be wanting in shrewdness and spirit if they do not make a vigorous and united effort to throw off the restriction which fetters their commerce. Any one who reflects on the subject must see that eveiy interest in the district is labouring under a serious disadvantage in our being subjected to an annual tax of at least ¿610,000, in th...

Throughout the whole of the day the greatest good humour prevailed among all parties. A. Lang, Esq., was the deputy returning officer for West Maitland. The polling com- menced very soon after nine o'clock in the morning, and for some time continued to pro- gress very slowly ; at eleven o'clock the numbers stood as follows : EAST MAITLAND.
