ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 8 June 1844

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. Gentlemen-In looking over the Sydney papers I perceive that, in the elections of Dis- trict Councillors lately held, precisely the same thing which happened at Maitland has happened at three other places, at least, at the nomination of candidates, but with a very different result, namely, at Goulburn, Yass, and Brisbane Water ; at each of these places, as well as at Maitland, one of the candidates was absent from the nomination, and some one of the other candidates requested the Warden to put to the absent candidate the declaration of qualification specified in the 14th clause of the charter of incorporation, and the candidate not being there to make the declaration, and no one producing it for him, he was by the Wardens at Yass, Goulburn, and Brisbane Water declared incom- petent to be put in nomination. The Warden at Maitland, when requested by Captain Russell at the nomination to put the declaration to Mr. Portus, r...

COMMERCIAL REMARKS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 8 June 1844

COMMERCIAL REMARKS. A fair share of business has been this week transacted in the retail way by the storekeepers, but very little produce has been brought into town. Money seems to be rather more plentiful on the whole. There is no change whatever in the price of grain. In dairy produce, there has been a decline of a penny a dozen in the price of eggs; and butter, of which but little has lately been brought in by the small settlers, has risen a penny per lb. Most kind of fruit, except oranges, are out of season, though a few loquats have been this week brought in, which are selling retail at from 3d. to 6d. per quart. In the vegetable market no alteration has taken place, potatoes and other articles still bringing the same price as were quoted in our last.

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 — 8 June 1844

SYDNEY NEWS. Wholesale Prices of Colonial Farm and Dairy Produce in the Sydney Market, during the present week. Wheat is realising about the same prices as last week, though the demand is much brisker. Flour continues without alteration, £11 for first flour, and £9 for seconds, per ton. Maize has undergone a decline in price; several shipments of new maize having arrived, realising Is per bushel of 60 lbs. to the bushel. Cape Barley is scarcely saleable. English Barley.-The very best samples are saleable for malting, and will realise about 3s per bushel of 52 lbs. Inferior samples quite unsaleable. Hay of good samples is saleable, but great attention must be paid to the compressing and trussing, otherwise it is rejected for shipping. Oaten and lucerne hay, well and neatly trussed and of good qualities, will sell at about £3 per ton. Bacon and Hams, well cured, are in deötand. Eggs are realising 8^d to 9£d. Cheese continues very dull of sale. Butter, of good quality, is rather scarce...

THE MAITLAND MERCURY. SATURDAY, JUNE 8, 1844. MAITLAND DISTRICT COUNCIL. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 8 June 1844

THE MAITLAND MEECTJEY, SATURDAY, JUNE 8, 1844. MAITLAND DISTRICT COUNCIL. It will be seen by a report in our fourth page that the Maitland District Council have prudently resolved to abstain from active measures until the Legislative Council have disposed of the bill which is about to \>e brought before them by the government. An abstract of the rental of the various divisions of the district was handed in by the assessors ; from which it appears that the total rental of the district is about ¿636,000 per annum. "We hope that the assessors do not intend this brief abstract to serve as an official report of their proceedings; if so, It is a very meagre and unsatisfactory document. The assessors to the Sydney District Council, in making their report, classified the lands in each parish, and furnished a variety of statistical details, which must prove ex- tremely valuable as supplying data upon which the Council can frame a just and complete system of assessment. We trust that the a...

HUNTER RIVER DISTRICT NEWS. [FROM OUR CORRESOPNDENTS.] NEWCASTLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 8 June 1844

HUNTER RIVER DISTRICT NEWS. [from our corresopndents.] NEWCASTLE. More Illicit Distillation.-On Wed- nesday, the 29th ult., the inspector of distilleries, upon some information which he had received, proceeded in company with the officer of customs, Harrison, the lockup keeper, and constables Jones and Lane, to an island situated about seven miles from Newcastle, in search of a still, and after having searched all day without success they returned home. On the following morning the party, determined not to be done, set out again, and very minutely searched another island which they suspected. After an arduous and long search they found the establishment they were in quest of, consisting of 300 gallons of wort ready for the still, a quantity of casks, some purcheons, and a large shed, together with a worm of a very large description made of copper. It was evidently altogether a first-rate concern. The search continued for three days and one night, and those articles which were not ta...

WILFUL MURDER [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 8 June 1844

WILFUL MURDER On Sunday evening last intelligence reached Maitland of a most diabolical murder which had been perpetrated on the road from Maitland to Seaham, near the fence of A. Warren, Esq. The information was given to the chief constable between six and seven o'clock on that evening, by a person named John Campbell, who resides at Clarence Town, and who stated that his father, Robert Campbell, had been robbed and murdered on the previous Thursday, and that he had given a man named Frederick Ganett into custody on suspicion of being concerned in it. The chief constable recollected that he had on the previous evening seen a man in Maitland with a new suit of clothes on, and it struck him that he might know something of it; he accordingly went in search of him, and after a short time found him at the Waterloo Tap, West Maitland ; but upon searching him nothing whatever was found upon him. Mr. Wood asked him several questions however, and in the course of the conversation it was men...

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. HINTS FOR FARMERS. To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 15 June 1844

ORIGZNA& CORRESPONDENCE. HINTS FOR FARMERS. To tlie Editors of the Maitland Mercury. Gentlemen-In my last communication, speaking of herbs containing bitter extractive being necessary for sheep to keep them in health, I omitted to say that water trefoil given to them, is affirmed by the old writers on husbandry to be a perfect cure for the rot. Sheep are particularly fond of tormentil root, which they will seek out wherever it is to be found : they have never been known to become affected with rot on pastures where this useful bitter grows. There was an error in the quotation from Horace, which, as it was rather a conspicuous one, I trust you will have the goodnes to correct thus : -"In publica commoda peccem Si longa sermone morer tua témpora." I hinted in my last communication that there were hundred of untried objects to which the genius and industry of the colonists might be directed with prodigious advantage. I fear many of our large farmers, however, and most of the sm...

MR. WHITE'S LECTURES ON MECHANICS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 15 June 1844

MR. WHITE'S LECTURES ON MECHANICS. On Friday evening, the 31st ult., Mr. White delivered his third lecture on this interesting subject, in the Scots Church, West Maitland. The audience was highly respectable, though not very numerous. The lecturer commenced by calling the attention of his audience to the "centre of gravity," and observed that the force of gravitation acted upon bodies, not according to bulk, but according to the quantity of matter which they contained, and the earth being almost a sphere, its centre was also the centre of gravity; and hence the reason why fluids always endeavoured to find the lowest level, because of the attraction of gravitation being more powerful than that of cohesion, and vice versa in the case of solids. The lecturer next pointed out tlie method of finding the centre of gravity; which in regular shaped bodies of uniform density was the centre of the mass. When two bodies were in connexion, the centre of gravity was the point at about which they...
