THE MAITLAND MERCURY. SATURDAY, JUNE 22, 1844. THE DREDGING MACHINE. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 22 June 1844
THE MAITLAND MERGT7EY. -SATURDAY, JUNE 22, 1844. THE DREDGING MACHINE. IN one of the many discussions which took place on the Estimates during the last session of the Legislative Council, the Colonial Secretary stated that the dredging machine was at that time em- ployed in the Parramatta River ; and that when the channel of that river had been cleared the machine would be sent either to the Hunter or to Geelong. The ma- chine has been withdrawn from the Parramatta River for some time, and has since been partially engaged in removing some obstructions in Sydney Cove. From a discussion which took place in Council a, week or two ago, we are led to infer that this task is also accomplished, and that the machine is now lying idle. It would therefore be an excellent time to request the government to fulfil the promise made by the Colonial Secretary. At the present time the inhabitants of the district are occasionally inconvenienced from the steamers being delayed for want of sufficient w...
HUNTER RIVER DISTRICT NEWS. [FROM OUR CORRESPONDENTS.] NEWCASTLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 22 June 1844
HUNTER RIVER DISTRICT NEWS. [FROM OUR CORRESPONDENTS.] NEWCASTLE. ESCAPE.-On Tuesday last a convict in irons, named Alfred Taught, made his escape from the stockade. Information of the circumstance was speedily given to the police, and both the military and the constables were despatched in all directions in pursuit of him. Towards evening constable Rinker fell in with the absentee, about nine or ten miles from Newcastle on the Maitland Road, at a place called the Swamps. After a severe struggle, during which the constable was thrown from his horse and almost overpowered by Taught, the constable managed to get his pistol from his pocket, and threatened to shoot him if he made any further resistance. He then surrendered, and having been handcuffed was brought back to Newcastle by constable Rinker the same night. On Wednesday the prisoner was tried at the stockade for absconding, and sentenced to receive one hundred lashes, which punishment he underwent with considerable sang froid. N...

ORIGINAL POETRY. THE EVENING STAR. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 22 June 1844
ORIGINAL POETRY. THE EVENING STAR. The stars were lit in heaven, and we did rove, Rosa and I, in the cool shadowless haze Of early night, at those wild lights to gaze, Ere'yet the moon, whose rim was now above An eastern hill, should dim them. Soon did move In both strange sympathies, as though their rays Were memories of bright eyes, that in the days Of the still past look'd heavenward in love. Distinguishingly then our thoughts begun To single for regard such as were rare ; To fix at length, by mute consent, on one That burns in the deep west beyond compare And fixing, deem, that when the day was done, The spirit of our love resided there. CHARLES HARPUR. Jerry's Plains, March, 1844.

OHXaXSSAJ. CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. GENTLE3IEN-I, amongst many of your zealous friends and supporters, who watch with an interested eye the progress of your paper, and who are accustomed to attach no small degree of importance to its publication to this particular district of the colony, am pleased to find a comparatively new, though tardy, contributor to its columns in the person of the well-known "Robin Goodfellow," to whom I cannot but feel greatly obliged for the plain, practical, and excellent "Hints for Farmers" which appear in the Mercury of to-day; the more excellent in my opinion, as they appear to stand in somewhat prominent and pleasing relief to the too theoretical and too learned character of that gentleman's numerous and talented contributions to the different Sydney papers. "To be quick to learn, and slow to judge," is an excellent maxim, no doubt, but still I must hazard the expression of an opinion that Robin Goodfellow is generally by...

HUNTER RIVER DISTRICT NEWS. [FROM OUR CORRESPONDENTS.] WOLLOMBI. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 29 June 1844
HUNTER RIVER DISTRICT WTEWS. [FROM OUR CORRESPONDENTS.] WOLLOMBI. DISTRICT COUNCIL.-Last week we noticed that at the meeting of this body several com- munications from his Excellency the Governor were read over. We cannot forbear saying a few words with reference to one of these letters. It conveyed permission from his Excellency to the Council to hold their future meetings in a wretched looking hovel, bearing the dignified name of post office, with the proviso that their meetings should in no way interfere with the duties of that establishment. Now to us of the township, who know the building in question, this gracious offer with its stipulation appears highly ridiculous; and we will venture to say that this murky looking affair would never have been honored by the Governor's notice had he been rightly informed of its appearance and history. We will give both in as few words as possible. It is one of a group of old ruinous road-party huts, which have been allowed to remain, a stand...
COMMERCIAL REMARKS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 29 June 1844
COMMERCIAL REMARKS. Notwithstanding the influx of visitors on account of the races, very little business has been this week transacted, scarcely any produce having been brought into town. Most articles remain without any alteration in price, except tea, which is on the advance. Scarcely any can now be purchased under £4 16s. per chest, and good tea is selling at £5 5s. Butter still continues on the advance, scarcely anything being now retailed under lOd. per lb. Hay is in demand for the Sydney market, but we have not heard of any advance in the price having taken place.
