LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. MAITLAND RACES. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 29 June 1844

XkOCAZ» XNTaiAXG&N-CX:. MAITLAND RACES. These races came off on the Maitland course on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday last. The weather, though fine, was extremely boister- ous, from the strong westerly gales which pre- vailed, not only during the past week, but for some days previously. Tlie course was in very fair condition, being neither too hard nor too heavy. There were about fifteen booths erected on the ground, and a number of gingerbread and fruit stalls, all of which appeared to do a fair amount of business. Good order and good humour seemed generally to prevail amongst the people, though a few drunken quarrels took place, but not to any great extent; nor was drunkenness at all a /prevailing feature on the course. Most of the'booths were provided with music, =and portions of them were set apart for dancing, in which a good many of the holiday folks amused themselves right merrily on the "light fantastic toe." The attendance was not so numerous as last .year, »but ...

LATER ENGLISH NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 29 June 1844

LATER ENGLISH NEWS. By the arrival of the Briton and the Royal Saxon on Wednesday last, each of which vessels has brought out upwards of 250 immigrants, we have English news to the middle of March. There is nothing, however, of any very great importance. Her Majesty's accouchement was expected to take place in June. Trade still continued to improve, and the wool and tallow markets were in a satisfactory state. Mr. Cobden had made a motion in the House of Commons for enquiry into the protection afforded to the agriculturists, which was nega- tived by a majority of 224 to 133. On the 12th March a dinner was given to Mr. O'connell at Covent Garden Theatre; the pit and orchestra being boarded over level with the stage, and tables formed to accommodate a thousand persons. Mr. T. S. Duncombe occu- pied the chair, and was supported by the Earl of Shrewsbury, Lord Camoys, Lord Duuboyne, Sir John Easthope, and a number of the Liberal members of the House of Commons. Some attention had been a...

X.EGISI.ATIVE COUNCIL FRIDAY, JUNE 21, 1844. Mr. W. C. WENTWORTH moved "that a select committee be appointed to enquire into and report upon all grievances not connected with the lands of the territory." The hon. member spoke at great length on the subject. Tlie first grievance to which he referred was the civil list which had been appropriated by the act of the Imperial Parliament out of the funds of the colony ; the next was that ever since the year 1835 the colony had been burthened with the entire expenses of the convict establishment j the next, that there was an utter want of a responsible government in this colony; another was the establishment of the municipal institu- tions which had recently been forced upon the colony ; the fifth grievance was the tenure of office of the Judges of the colony, who hold their office merely during the pleasure of the crown. The last grievance to which he adverted was that persons having claims against the government had no means whatever of ...

ORIGINAL POETRY. LINES WRITTEN ON THE DEATH OF HENRY, ELDEST SON OF MR. JOHN KINGSMILL. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 29 June 1844

ORIGINAL POETRY. LINES WRITTEN ON THE DEATH OF HENRY, ELDEST SON OF MR. JOHN KINGSMILL. BY A SCHOOLFELLOW. He is gone to the mansion of a peaceful abode, To the house of his Father, the throne of his God To those glorious regions of heavenly peace, Where griefs are forgotten, and cares ever cease. He is gone to the home of eternal rest, To the dwelling of all-that are righteous and blest.; And the soul borne aloft on an angel's bright wings, With its Maker in heaven now joyfully sings. He is gone to a land of celestial bliss, To a land of continual happiness, And his spirit hath tä'en its aerial flight To a resting place of serene delight. He is gone to the realms of perpetual day, Where the holy and righteous incessantly pray, And the cherubs and seraphs continually sing The praises of God, their maker and king. .East Maitland, June, 1844.

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. HINTS TO FARMERS. To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 6 July 1844

ORIGINA!. CORRESPONDENCE. HINTS TO FARMERS. To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. GENTLEMEN-Having briefly but on good grounds recommended the cultivation of flax to the farmers of this colony, as one of the most rational and feasible speculations they have hitherto entertained, I proceed now to offer a few remarks on the mode of cultivation, the qualities of soil, the choice and quantity of seed per acre, weeding, pulling, rippling, steeping, spreading and di-ying on the grass, rolling and scutching. These, let me impress on your readers, are most important processes : for on the careful and skilful management of every one of them depend both the soundness and value of the material, and a brisk demand for it in the market. Thei'e is enormous competition on the Continent of Europe with the British in this.article; all success and profit, therefore, will depend on the excellence of the commodity which this country can produce-and I see no reason why we should be behind others in th...

The Governor's letter having been read, the Chairman said the meeting had been convened for the purpose of considering what steps would be proper to take with reference to the letter before them. He thought the government had treated the bench in a discourteous manner, by suspending the chief constable without their sanction or approval ; and it would-be for the bench to consider whether they ought to take notice of such a letter, or how it should be answered. He questioned' the power of -the G...

The WARDEN said he thought it was his duty to relieve the minds of the Council from the misapprehension that might otherwise rest upon them from the observations which had appeared in the Maitland Mercury of the 22nd June, in a letter signed "An Elector." He (the Warden) was therein accused of withholding some portion of the correspondence that passed respecting the election, and leading them to think that he considered Mr. Portus firmly seated as a Councillor in the present Council. The letter addressed by Mr. Healy's advisers to his Excellency the Governor he (the Warden) uever heard of till informed by the unceremonious communication of "An Elector," with the gratuitous accusation of his endeavouring to palm upon them a garbled account of the transaction, which drew forth the other side of the question ; by which an attempt was made to impugn his veracity.

COMMERCIAL REMARKS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 6 July 1844

COMMERCIAL REMARKS. Business has this week been much about the same as it was last, though there does not appear to be any great amount.of money afloat; and there has not been much produce brought into town, with the exception of hay, and a quantity of bacon, ali of which has merely passed through on its way to Sydney. The demand for hay appears to be on the increase just now, though we have not heard that any alteration has at present taken place in the price. The grain market has undergone a slight change. Wheat is rather looking up; good samples are now realizing 3s. per bushel in Maitland, and average samples about 2s. 9d. Barley is rather on the decline, the best samples of English not bringing more than Is. 9d. per bushel; whilst for Cape barley there is no sale whatever. Maize remains stationary. In dairy produce butter still continues to rise in price, and eggs to decline. Vegetables are getting rather scarce, and there is a consequent increase in the price of some articles....
