COMMERCIAL REMARKS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 15 June 1844

COMMERCIAL REMARKS. There has been no great amount of business transacted this week, something less indeed than last week, which is probably owing in some degree to the rain. Little or no produce of any kind has been brought into the town, and prices appear to have undergone very little alteration. Wheat, if anything', is a shade lower, the best samples not realising more than 2s. 6d. per bushel for the Sydney market ; for home consumption a trifle more is given. Maize still continues at a low figure, the average price in Maitland being 9d. per bushel. Barley appears to be rather scarce, none having this week been offered for sale ; but there is no alteration in price. The vegetable market still continues to be well supplied, and the late rains have much improved the quality of most kinds. Prices remain without any deviation. Thebest Derwent seed potatoes are bringing about 4s. per cwt. Dairy produce has undergone some slight alteration, butter being in demand, and an advance in the...

MR. KING'S BOILING DOWN ESTABLISHMENT [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 15 June 1844

MR. KING'S BOILING DOWN ESTABLISH- MENT On Tuesday last Mr. F. J. King, the proprietor of the boiling down establishment, West Maitland, appeared before the police bench on summons, to answer the complaint of Mr. Hugh M'Gowan for a public and common nuisance. Mr. Turner appeared for the defence. Mr. M'Gowan stated that he knew Mr. King, and also the establishment which he had erected on the bank of the river as an establsh ment for boiling down cattle and sheep and converting the fat into tallow. It was in the township of West Maitland. He did not reside in the township, but on the opposite bank of the river, a little lower down than Mr. King's establishment. The place had been established about two or three months, and there was a slaughter yard close by ; he knew that twenty head of cattle had been slaughtered there a day, but he believed the average was about 40. The smell arising from it was very noisome, and so strong that he had been frequently awoke by it in the night. Sheep'...

THE MAITLAND MERCURY. SATURDAY, JUNE 15, 1844. SYDNEY MAIL. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 15 June 1844

THE MAITLAND MEECUEY, SATURDAY, JUNE 15, 1844. SYDNEY MAIL. No mail from Sydney has arrived during the two last days; for which various causes have been assigned, and rumours are afloat in the town. From the enquiries we have made we have been able to collect the following facts. The Kose left Mor- peth at the usual hour on Tuesday morn- ing, and arrived at Newcastle, where she staid, on account of the roughness of the weather, until four o'clock, p.m., when she left Newcastle for Sydney. Soon after her departure it came on to blow very hard from the southward, and the general impression at Newcastle was that she would not reach Sydney that evening, but would probably put into Broken Bay. TheThistlc-îeft Morpeth on Wednesday morning, and arrived at Newcastle, where she was obliged to stay, the weather being still boisterous. She remained there all day on Thursday, and we hear did not leave until four o'clock yesterday morning. No intelligence has of course been received relative to ...

HUNTER RIVER DISTRICT NEWS. [FROM OUR CORRESPONDENTS.] WOLLOMBI. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 15 June 1844

HUNTER RIVER DISTRICT NEWS. [from our correspondents.] WOLLOMBI. On Wednesday morning a report reached the township that a man was lying in the vicinity by the road side in a dying state. A few of the humane inhabitants immediately proceeded to the place with a horse and cart, where they found an old wretched looking being in the last stage of existence, lying helplessly by a fire, where he had been exposed to the heavy rain of the preceding night. He was lifted into the cart and brought to the township, where he expired in about half an hour after his arrival. An immediate enquiry into the circumstances of his death was entered into by the police magistrate, when it appeared that he had been seen the evening before his death by two persons, one of whom advised him (seeing his infirm state and the signs of coming rain) to seek the shelter of some house. This advice he seemed to have disregarded. Another witness stated that he had known the deceaspd for many years, and that he was a ...

XJSGISIiATXVE COUNCIL. Thursday, June 6, 1844. Mr. Cowper gave notice that he would on Friday move an address to his Excellency praying for the copy of a circular addressed to licensed surveyors within the boundaries, calling upon them to discover who are occu- pying crown lands without a license, and also as to the mode of remunerating those surveyors. Mr. Walker enquired if it was the intention of government to introduce any measure to carry out the views of the town council of Melbourne, as set forth in a petition presented last session? The Colonial Secretary said the govern- ment had no such intention. Dr. Nicholson gave notice that he would on Friday move for the appointment of a select committee to consider and report upon the Insolvent Law. Dr. Lang moved two resolutions, the object of which were to secure the elective franchise to tenants of land holding leases at not less than £20 per year rent, and also to that class of the community commonly called squatters.

COLONIAL INTELLIGENCE. PORT PHILLIP. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 15 June 1844

COLONIAL INTELLIGENCE. PORT PHILLIP. Affray with the Natives.-Information has been received in town of an affray which took place at the station of Messrs. Pettit and Clark, situate between the Grampians and the Pyrenees. It appears that a body of natives rushed one of the shepherds, who had in his charge a large flock of sheep, about five hundred of which were driven off by the blacks, after severely wounding the shepherd, who now lies in a most dangerous state. Mr. Commis- sioner Powlett and Captain Dana were in the neighbourhood, and followed the track of the sheep for about two miles, when they came up with the depredators at the edge of a large scrub. The natives immediately stood and showed fight, receiving the police (consisting of four of the border and four of the native force), with a shower of spears. Fearing, as we are informed, that the hue and cry of " maudlin sensibility" would be raised unless an unusual and dangerous delay was practised, they endeavoured to parley w...

To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 22 June 1844

To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. GENTLEMEN-In your paper of Saturday last there is a passage in the letter of Robin Good fellow which I was surprised to see inserted, knowing the caution that you usually exercise in all matters affecting particular interests. The passage is calculated to give the newly arrived immigrant or stranger a bad impression with respect to West Maitland, as a residence or place to set down in ; and although I cannot think that the writer intended to aim a blow at this town, yet it would be well if, in reading the musty records of the ancients, who, he states, only built towns where the cattle were found to be healthy, he took with him a little modern experience and enquiry. The passage I allude to speaks of West Maitland and decayed vege- table matter, &c, &c. Now it appears that the whole of this ancient theory is in this day exploded, so far as vegetable matter is concerned at least, for I find the following passage in a work publish...

To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 22 June 1844

To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. GENTLEMEN-In your paper of June 8th there is a statement published as an explanation of the Warden of the district, Mr. Close, relative to his refusal to receive the objection of Mr. Russell to Mr. Portus's nomination. Now as this statement is not what it purports to be, the whole truth, the public ought to be made acquainted with what ought to have been added to it, if the Warden was acquainted with it, viz., that on the receipt of the first answer to Mr. Healy's petition a second letter was written to the government, to which an answer was returned stating that the complaint would be remedied by a measure to be brought before the Legislative Council in a few days ; and therefore the matter does not rest where the Warden would wish it, but is likely to come before the public in the shape of a proper and impartial inquiry, when it will be seen that instead of the manouvre being on the part of Mr. Russell, who only endea- voured to carry out th...

COLONIAL INTELLIGENCE. PORT PHILLIP. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 22 June 1844

COXiONIAI. INTEIAIGENCE. PORT PHILLIP. FEMALE EMIGRANTS.-By an Irish paper of December last, we perceive that the Poor Law Union in Cork have decided on sending out to these colonies 108 female paupers, at a cost of £7 per head, the expense of their annual keep being £9 per head.-P. P. Gazette. STATISTICS.-By the census taken of the population of this province up to the 31st March, 1841, the population was 11,738 souls. The number of emigrants who have arrived in this colony since the period the census was taken (March, 1841) up to the present time has been 10,154. Thus, allowing the original census of 11,738 to double itself in twenty-five years, the increase during the last three years would be about 1500 ; and allowing an increase of five per cent, on the arrivals since March, 1841, a further addition of nearly 500 would arise ; the total number of inhabitants in this province would be, say 23,892.-Ibid. A large meeting of the squatters of the Port Phillip district was held on Ju...

SYDNEY NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 22 June 1844

SYDNEY NEWS. His Honor Mr. Justice Burton has received the appointment of a Judge of the Supreme Court of Madras, and will shortly leave this colony for that place. The salary of an Indian judge is £5000 a year, with a retiring allowance of £800 a year after seven years service. The three men, Martin, Vigors, and Burdett, have all been committed to take their trial for the wilful murder of Mr. Noble. A man named Rankin, who resided in Kent-street, has also been committed as an accessory before the fact. WHO ARE THE CRIMINALS?-By a careful comparison of the number of persons charged before the police within the last month-and, we presume, previous months will afford the same testimony of the fact-a very large majority are found to be convicts, who have become free by servitude, the greater proportion of whom are expirées from penal settlements.-Australian.

FLOUR.-The advance in the wheat market is too trifling to cause any alteration in flour ; it still remains at £11 per ton for first, and £9 for seconds. MAIZE.-Several lots have arrived during the week, but not in condition for general use or shipment. Good dry samples will realise Is per bushel, at which price there are several purchasers in the market. CAPE BARLEY is scarcely saleable. ENGLISH BARLEY.-Only the very best sam- ples are saleable, and will fetch 2s. 6d. to 3s. per bushel of 52 lbs. HAY is dull of sale," and owing to there being no vessel chartered for horses or cattle the extent of sales is materially limited.
