BREACH OF THE LICENSING ACT. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 6 July 1844

BREACH OF THE LICENSING ACT. Yesterday Mrs. Mary Ann Lee appeared at the police office to answer an information of the chief constable for a breach of the Licensing Act, in having sold a gill of rum on the 1st of July. Mr. Turner appeared for the defence. The information having been read the defendant pleaded not guilty. John Rogers was then called, who swore that on Monday night last, about seven o'clock, he went to Mrs. Lee's, in company with a man named M'Gowan and his wife, and they had three glasses of rum, which were paid for with a shilling. They then went away, and in about half an hour returned, when a gill of rum was purchased by Mrs. M'Gowan for eightpence. Witness saw Mrs. Lee give the rum to Mrs. M'Gowan from a decanter, and it was put into a bottle. Mrs. M'Gowan gave Mrs. Lee a shilling for the rum, and received fourpence in change, which change was given to witness. Cross-examined :-He was in the kitchen ; Mrs. M'Gowan went to Mrs. Lee in another room ; he stepped out...

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 — 6 July 1844

SYDNEY NEWS. WHOLESALE PRICES OF COLONIAL FARM AND DAIRY PRODUCE IN THE SYDNEY MARKET, DURING THE PRESENT WEEK. WHEAT, from the Derwent, of good samples, is realising about 4s per bushel, and brisk of sale. Best samples of colonial are also saleable, realising about 3s 6d per bushel. FLOUR.-A rise in price has been and is daily looked for, though no deviation has taken place ; £11 per ton for first flour, and £9 for seconds have been realised during the week. MAIZE.-Sales have been rather brisker the last day or two, but prices continue much the same; Is to Is 2d per bushel is the utmost given for best samples of new maize. Good old maize very scarce. CAPE BARLEY is scarcely saleable. ENGLISH BARLEY only of the very best samples is saleable, and will realise about 2s 6d per bushel for malting or seed. HAY.-This market is again rather overstocked, though hay is still fetching about the same price as last week, £3 per ton ; though good qualities of either oaten or lucerne are always s...

HUNTER RIVER DISTRICT NEWS. [FROM OUR CORRESPONDENTS.] JERRY'S PLAINS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 6 July 1844

HUNTE» RIVER, DISTRICT KTEWá. [FROM OUR CORRESPONDENTS.] JERRY'S PLAINS. Since the cessation of the windy weather, which continued till within these few days to mark the middle of winter, we have had occasional showers, which have helped the young wheat considerably. The crop is remark- ably backward this year, scarcely anywhere covering the ground. The farmers, from the necessity of doing something, are ploughing for maize, although last year's crop remains un- saleable on their hands. Large herds of cattle are still pouring down to the boiling down establishments. The small graziers are looking forward to an increased price for stock, owing to the diminution in the number consequent upon this continual destruc- tion of them ; but I have heard it stated that this is not likely to exceed greatly the annual increase. If so, there will be boiling down in perpetuity, or at least for many years. July 4th. NEWCASTLE. A DESERTER.-On Monday, the 1st instant, the chief constable received in...

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

BRITISH EXTRACTS. SHOCKING OCCURRENCE.-A most deplorable accident happened in the vicinity of Washing- ton, United States, on the 29th February. A large party of the inhabitants, including the President of the United States, were invited on board the war steamer Princeton for a trip down the Potomac, and to witness the discharge of a large gun, calculated to throw a shot weighing 212 lbs., which had been placed in her bows. The gun was fired once successfully, but in firing it a second time the breech was blown out, and several persons killed ; among them were Mr. A. P. Upsher, Secretary of State, Mr. Gurner, Secretary of the Navy, and Com. Kennon, Chief of the Bureau of Construction > many others were seriously wounded. The immediate retirement of Earl de Grey from the vice-royalty of Ireland was announced upon authority. It was rumoured that Sir E. Sugden was to be appointed Lord Chancellor of England. John Walter Haime, Esq., has been appointed Chief Justice of Hongkong. Admir...

LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. FRIDAY, JUNE 28, 1844. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 6 July 1844

ZtEGISI^aTIVE CO-0-NCIX» FRIDAY, JUNE 28, 1844. The COLONIAL SECRETARY laid upon the table the Blue Book for the present year. The COLONIAL SECRETARY also laid upon the table a further return to the address- adopted on the motion of the hon. member for Sydney, on the 30th May, being the whole of the corres- pondence between the colonial and home governments relative to the minimum price of crown lands. In laying the returns on the table he would observe the house would be as must surprised on perusing them as they were on Thursday at hearing that his Excellency Sir George Gipps had not in any way recommended the erection of District Councils in the colony. Sir George Gipps had never been consulted as to the minimum price to be fixed on crown lands, nor had he offered any opinion to induce the fixing of that price, as fixed by the home government. After some further remarks from the Colonial Secretary, the returns were ordered to be printed. The SPEAKER informed the house that the ad...

NEWCASTLE—STOCKTON. COLONIAL MANUFACTURES—CLOTH— SALT. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 6 July 1844

NEWCASTLE-STOCKTON. COLONIAL MANUFACTURES-CLOTH SALT. With the view of giving more publicity to the growing importance of the port of the Hunter, we copy the following well timed article from the Sydney Morning Herald of the 21st ult. There can be little doubt that, from its geographical position, and ample supply of those two great requisites-coal and water-the mouth of the Hunter will be the site of the principal manufactures in the colony, and that a very few years will see a dense population engaged in various branches of manufacturing, but parti- cularly of cloth, established in the neighbour- hood ; and the recognition of Newcastle as, a free port, which will most probably have taken place ere this time next year, will facilitate the operations referred to. The Australian Agricultural Company have now two mines at work, the shaft having been sunk and the engine erected at its mouth, so that upon the completion of the boiler it will be immediately started. These works, with the...

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

BRITISH EXTRACTS. THE KING OF THE FRENCH.-We have heard it more than rumoured that it is the intention of the King of the French to return the visit of our gracious Queen, and that this royal meeting is not to take place at Brighton, as was originally stated, but at the Court of London, not in the latter part, but at the height of our fashionable season, a period at which Paris always becomes deserted by the court, the senate, and all votaries of fashion. It is, probably, with a view to this auspicious event that the state apartments at St. James's Palace have been undergoing repairs, and are now receiving splendid decorations.-London paper. FIRES IN LONDON, 1843.-On Monday, at a meeting of the directors of the principal insurance companies, composing the committee of the London Fire Establishment, held at the chief station in Waiting-street, Mr. Braidwood, the superintendent of the brigade force, made his annual report of the fires that have occurred in the metropolis and its subur...

COXiONIAXi INTELLIGENCE. PORT PHILLIP. "AUSTRALIAN SKETCHES."-At the conclu- sion of Mr. Edward Curr's speech in moving the second resolution at the squatters' meeting, he predicted, should separation be achieved, the following improvements :-That the tin panikin would give place to china, the black pipe to the more aristocratic cigar, that damper would be banished for the baker's loaf, and the superabun- dance of whisker and beard which converted the human countenace into a scrub, feel the humanising effects of the razor, and be amal- gamated with mortar to plaster the walls of their huts.-P. P. Gazette.

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

SYDNEY NEWS. THE CIRCULAR QUAY.-The works at the circular quay are being rapidly proceeded with. The old wooden boat jetty has been removed, and the wharf continued past it very nearly to the tank stream, but unless some arrangement can be come to with the owners of the land it can only be carried a few yards farther than where the men are at present at work. Where the men now are is the deepest part of the cove; there will be twenty-five feet water close to the wharf, so that the largest ship can haul close alongside and require no stage. It is intended, we believe, to afford accommodation here for the shipment of horses.-Herald. CIVIL LIST.-On Wednesday week the Colonial Secretary presented to the Legislative Council the following " Statement of the amount in- tended to be appropriated in the year 1845, for the services and purposes named in schedule B, annexed to 5 and 6 Victoria, cap. 76, presented to the Legislative Council by his Excellency the Governor, pursuant to the 39th s...

LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. WEDNESDAY, JULY 3, 1844. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 6 July 1844

KEGZSXU&TXVE couarcix.. WEDNESDAY, JULY 3, 1844. Mr. LOWE said be had to bring under the notice of the house a breach of the privileges of the house which he conceived had been com- mitted. A debate took place last week on a motion for a committee to enquire into the Presbyterian Church Temporalities Act, and from an expression said to have fallen from him in the course of that debate had arisen the circumstance to which he wished to call their attention. On Friday evening last he was waited upon by Dr. Macfarlane, who informed him that he was the bearer of a letter from Mr. Macdermott, and handed him a note, which the hon. member read. After perusing the letter some conversation ensued, and Mr. Lowe said in his opinion Mr. Macdermott had been guilty of a breach of privilege, and he declined sending any answer to it. About three o'clock on the following day he was waited on at his chambers by Dr. Macfarlane and Captain Moore, the latter of whom stated that he had been instru...

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. HINTS TO FARMERS. To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 13 July 1844

OBIGXNAX. COBBESP027BENCE. HINTS TO FARMERS. To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. GENTLEMEN-Notwithstanding all our doctors in the Legislative Council and elsewhere, and all our drugs in the country, in the form of cattle, sheep, tobacco, tallow, &c, the health of the state continues still in a helpless and prostrate condition: her malady scarcely presents a symptom favourable enough to cheer us even with the illusions of hope. In the language of the humoral pathology of by-gone days, the morbid temperament under which she has been suffering so long and so severely is fast approach- ing the crisis. The struggle between the vis medicatrix natura and the peccant humours of vanity and paper credit, which were the proximate cause of the disease, is so equally maintained, that it is almost impossible for ordinary perspicacity to prognosticate whether the crisis will be for life or death. We ought not, however, to sit like fatalists and idly watch the issue of the contest. As s...

MAITLAND QUARTER SESSIONS. MONDAY, JULY 8, 1844. (Before W. M. Manning, Esq., Chairman and A. Dennison, Esq.) [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 13 July 1844

MAITLAND QUARTER SESSIONS. MONDAY, JULY 8, 1844. (Before W. M. Manning, Esq., Chairman and À. Dennison, Esq.) Martin, an aboriginal native of the colony, was indicted for stealing a kettle and key, the property of James Young, at Maitland, on the 10th June last. From the evidence it appeared that the prisoner called at Mr. Young's house about 11 o'clock on the night in question, and called him up, saying he was murry cold, and wished to sit down in his kitchen. Mr. Young let him in, and about an hour afterwards he was called up by the chief constable, who had met prisoner in the street with the kettle and key of the kitchen door in his possession. The prisoner said he had only borrowed the kettle for the purpose of going to get bull in it, and he did not mean to " crambo" it. The Chairman, in summing up, said it would have been better if the kettle had been taken from prisoner and returned to the owner, and the prisoner let go without bringing him there, as the moral sense in such i...
