THE MAITLAND MERCURY. SATURDAY, JULY 13, 1844. PUBLIC EDUCATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 13 July 1844

THE MAITLAND MEECUEY, SATURDAY, JULY 13, 1844. PUBLIC EDUCATION. WE are glad to find that the wish which .was so generally expressed, that the Legislative Council would take the subject of public education under its control, is likely to be realised. A select committee -has been appointed to enquire into and report upon the state of education in the .colony, and to devise the means of placing the education of youth upon a basis suited to the wants and wishes of the community. The committee comprises members of the three principal bodies of Christians in the colony, and is altogether the best chosen committee, looking at the object in view, of the session. The gentleman who moved the appointment of the committee, Mr. Lowe, is certainly entitled to the thanks of the community for the fair and judicious manner in which -he has brought the sub- ject under the consideration of the Council. Instead of asking the Council to adopt resolutions, and thereby pledge itself to certain principles...

DINNER TO MR. P. J. COHEN. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 13 July 1844

DINNER TO MR. P. J. COHEN. On Wednesday evening last a dinner was given to Mr. P. J. Cohen, late of the Rose Inn, West Maitland, on his leaving the district to reside in Sydney. The dinner was served up in a most excellent style by Mr. Reeves, and the table was actually loaded with an abundance of good fare ; both the wine and the viands being of a first-rate description. The billiard room of the Albion Inn was fitted up for the occasion in a splendid manner by Mr. Random. Over the chair was the motto " Auld Lang Syne" worked in papers of various colours, and at the lower end of the room was a large green flag, with the old Irish harp, and the motto " Erin go Bragh j" on one side of the room was the motto " Malt land's Friend," and opposite this " Success attend him," both of which were worked in variegated paper; a number of flowers and ever- greens were also tastefully arranged about the room. At about half-past seven o'clock between forty and fifty gentlemen sat down to dinner, t...

HUNTER RIVER DISTRICT NEWS. [FROM OUR CORRESPONDENTS.] PATERSON. Business here is very dull, and money scarcer than ever. The high rents obtained by the landlords (in almost all case3 20s. per acre per annum) are seriously felt by the country districts, in consequence of the nominal price of every description of grain.

Ann Muller, an old dame with a huge head and a small pug nose, and wearing a stiff cap, which appeared to have been recently washed in a horse pond and ironed with a brick bat, was charged by constable Lane with being drunk and obstropolous, and making use of naughty language on the Sunday previous, to the no small annoyance of the peaceable inhabitants of the town, and especially horrifying to the sensitive nerves of the witness, who took her in charge, and escorted her over to the tender mercies of the lockup keeper.

LITERARY NOTICE. Introductory Lecture delivered at the Opening of the Twelfth Session of the Sydney Mechanics' School of Arts. By Henry Carmichael, M.A. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 13 July 1844

LITERARY NOTICE. Introductory Lecture delivered at the Opening of the Twelfth Session of the Sydney Mechanics' School of Arts. By Henry Car- michael, M.A. There are perhaps few individuals in the colony who have rendered such important services to the cause of public education as Mr. Carmichael. The establishment of the Sydney Mechanics' School of Arts was of itself an aid of no trifling influence in the dis- semination of useful knowledge; and we are glad to observe that Mr. C. is at present endeavouring to raise the character and enlarge the sphere of usefulness of that institution. His views on the subject of education are there- fore entitled to attention on the ground of services already rendered, and equally so from the earnestness, ability, and candour with which they are supported. The branch of the educa cational question to which Mr. Carmichael more immediately directs his attention, in the Lecture before us, is, " How shall education best be ' rendered universal ?" As an ...

The COLONIAL SECRETARY said he should not be prepared to answer such a question on so early a day, as the matter being one of finance, it was necessary that the whole financial question should have been disposed of before the govern- m...

BOILING DOWN. To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 20 July 1844

BOILING DOWN. To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. GENTLEMEN-As the colony is now fairly embarked in a new article of export, which bids fair to equal the golden fleece, as a late writer states that it passes in London as current as a sovereign, every attention should be paid to making the article as perfect as possible, to make it the more profitable. The several writers at home and in the colony agree that all the tallow should be clarified after boiling or steaming ; any tallow which is shipped without this process is liable to be injured on the voyage. Even in the short passage from St. Petersburgh, in a cold climate, tallow that has not been cla- rified or cleared from the water is found, when opened out, to have dark blue spots of mildew ,i"n it, which deteriorates its value. To prevent this the tallow, after steaming or boiling, should be put into a pot, and a gradual heat applied to it, say up-to about 300 degrees, or more if great care is used. Now,-as water boils at abo...

ENGLISH NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 20 July 1844

ENGIiISK NEWS. By the arrival of the Lloyds, English news has been received to the 27 th March. Not having received any late papers by her ourselves, we are indebted to our Sydney contemporaries for the following abstract. On the 14th March Mr. Hope stated in the House of Commons that the government did not admit the correctness of Mr. Scott's state- ment on the previous day of the case of the Australian settlers ; though they had no ob- jection to the production of the papers. The New Zealand Company had come to a standstill, and admitted that as a colonising body their powers were suspended. The King of Sweden died on March 8th, aged eighty; the French papers, in speculating on the event, all agreed that though King Oscar, his successor, might reign, the Czar of Russia would govern the kingdom. The Ministry had been defeated in the House of Commons on a clause in the Factories Bill, which provided that women and children should not work more than twelve hours a day ; Lord Ashley m...

COMMERCIAL REMARKS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 20 July 1844

COMMERCIAL REMARKS. Business has been rather brisker this week in the town, and money has on the whole been more plentiful. There has not been a great deal of tallow purchassd, and of what has changed hands the price has varied, from 22s. to 26s. per cwt. For hides the demand is fair, and rather a large quantity have been purchased at 6a. for good salted, 6s. 6d. having been obtained for a very superior lot. Pelts vary a good deal according to quality and length of wool ; good dry may be stated at Is. 3d., and green at le. 6d., but these prices can only be obtained for the best, about Is. being the price of a large portion ; without the wool they will only fetch Id. to 3d., and a large parcel could not find a purchaser even at the former rate. In wheat there is very little doing, very few persons having any for sale ; from 2s. 6d. to 3s. has been paid during the week. Maize has been bought pretty freely, at8d. 9d. and 10d., wholesale. For good English barley the demand is fair, but ...
