HUNTER RIVER DISTRICT NEWS. [FROM OUR CORRESPONDENTS.] DUNGOG. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 4 March 1843

HUNTER RIVER DISTRICT NEWS. [FROM OUR CORRESPONDETS.] DUNGOG. On Friday last, about ten o'clock a.m., two men, armed with pistols, entered the house of Mr. Patrick Levy, who resides about ten miles from this township, and is a tenant of V. Dowling, Esq., J.P., but finding nothing in the place worth carrying off except flour, they took about 40 lbs. of that article and decamped. Information was immediately given to Mr. Dowling, and although the chief constable and the mounted police instantly went in pursuit, no trace has yet been found of the thieves. The district looks beautifully since the rains. The friends of Mr. R. Scott, as well as those of Mr. R. Windeyer, are canvassing very actively ; the latter gentleman stands the best chance in this neighbourhood, at least such is the general opinion. March 2, 1843.   RAYMOND TERRACE. BURGLARY.-A daring robbery was committed on the estate of Captain Crawford, about eight miles from the township, by four armed bush- rangers. ...

ELECTION DINNER. On Tuesday last a dinner was given at Mr. P. J. Cohen's, the Rose Inn, West Maitland, by the Maitland Committee of A. W. Scott Esq., to the committee and friends of that gentleman at Newcastle. The guests from Newcastle arrived in East Maitland about noon, and were met by their Maitland friends with a band at Mr. Green's, the George and Dragon Inn, when the whole, to the number of about forty-five, chiefly upon horseback and in gigs, came in procession to West Maitland, arriving at Mr. Cohen's about half-past five in the evening.

To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 4 March 1843

To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. GENTLEMEN-The long promised " American- ensis," which was to astonish the natives, has at length dawned into existence, and it clearly elucidates one important fact, that is, American- ensis can actually write-a circumstance hitherto doubtful. The horrible suspense of the last three weeks is now amply rewarded-the Rubicon is past-Americanensis is out at last. The Mercury, which for the last three weeks has been below Zero, is now up to blood heat. It however narrowly escaped the dreadful abyss which awaited it if the editors had once more procrastinated the publication of the elaborate morsel. The manuscript would no doubt have been withdrawn, and placed in the hands of those who know how to appreciate a good thing. The American ruby of the first water, whose pure philanthropy no doubt induced him to come all this way to show the natives how they do it in the States, and to exude a portion of the essence of self-government which he imbibed in ...

To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 4 March 1843

To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. GENTLEMEN-Fearful that this letter may meet with too warm a reception, I beg your merciful consideration to avert its committal to the flames. But as it touches you among the rest, you surely will not shrink from the strictest scrutiny into your characters as editors. To begin, then (and I do so at the risk of my scholarship being called into question by True Blue), I admit myself an ignorant, illiterate being, a mere jackass, a fellow of notorious character, one of whom the world can only say that I have been a thief and rogue, " three times,   lagged and werry nigh scragged ;" and further than that, I defy them to say " black's the white of my eye," and consequently supersede any attempt to blackball me further. But I must out with it, let what will be the consequence. I beg therefore to say that when first solicited to become a subscriber to your journal I did so cheerfully, from a feeling of supporting so laud- able an underta...

[advertisement.] THE CHURCH. To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. Gentlemen-I perceive, from advertisements which recently appéare'd In your paper, that the Episcopalian church in West Maitland rejoices in the name of "The West Maitland Church." This must have been adopted either on the assumption that the other places of worship in West Maitland are not Christian éhurches at all, or on the somewhat kindred ground that they are mere dissenting chapels, within the territory of the so-called West Maitland church. On the former assumption I will only remark that it would merely follow out the doctrine recently acted on, that the ordination of non episcopal bodies is not valid, and that such bodies, therefore, have no ministry ; that what they call their ministry is merely a lay agency. The latter assumption is at variance with feet. All the places of worship in West Maitland are in precisely the same relation to the district; none of them is the church of the district ; each is the ...

To the Independent Electors of tne Borougns of East and "West maitland and Newcastle. GENTLEMEN-In presenting myself as a Candidate for the honour of your sup- port at the approaching Election, I consider it proper to give you an outline of my principles. I am a friend to civil and religious liberty, and an enemy to all intolerance. I am for diffusing the blessings of education as widely as possible amongst the people. I am for the most rigid economy in every department of the government. I shall co-operate with the friends of the country in endeavouring to get rid of the civil list, and to establish the right of appropriating as well as of raising the public revenue. This endeavour failing, I shall contend that the territonal revenue be conceded to us as an equivalent on the same principle as it has been conceded in Canada. Seeing that the district councils created by the new Act of Parliament will entail a heavy local expenditure on the country districts, for improvements of all k...

THE MAITLAND MERCURY. SATURDAY, MARCH 11, 1843. ENGLISH NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 11 March 1843

THE MAITLAND MEBCURY, SATURDAY, MARCH 11, 1843. ENGLISH NEWS. INTELLIGENCE has been received from England, via India, to the 4th November, six days later than any previous intelligence. Her Majesty was well, and about to pass the winter at Brighton. A steam yacht of 1000 tons, and 450 horse horse power, was being built at Pembroke for her Majesty. Dr. Channing and Allan Cunningham had recently died. Lord Melbourne was dangerously ill, and the King of Hanover was still in a precarious state. Major Malcolm, the bearer of the Chinese treaty, was expected to, arrive in England about the 10th December. Trade had experienced little improvement, the American tariff operating unfavourably for British manufacturers. No additional duty had been imposed upon cotton twist and, iron by the new German tariff, as was at first erroneously stated, but the additions were mostly on articles of woollen manufacture, a great demand having previously existed for such goods of a light description, in conse...
