LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. THURSDAY, JULY 18, 1844. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 27 July 1844
XiESXSXhaTXVS COUUCZÏ.. THURSDAY, JULY l8, 1844. As reported in our last number, at a quarter to ten Mr. WENTWORTH rose and said he was surprised at the pertinacity of honorable members. The authorities quoted by the Attorney General were quite inapplicable. It was incumbent on the house to do its duty, and send this case to be tried by the ordinary tri- bunals. Mr. BLAND said if they did not resist this first attempt, mobs and daniagogues would insult the members with impunity. Dr. LANG could not concur in the recom- mendation of the house, that these gentlemen bhould be prosecuted; it would make them martyrs in the estimation of the public. Mr. HAMILTON maintained that the prose- cution would be a decided act of oppression. Mr. YOUNG said every man tried in the Supreme Couit might as well say he was op- pressed. Mr. ROBINSON said no person ought to hold the commission of the peace who had been con- nected with duelling. Mr. WINDEYER replied, and a division took place, when there a...

HUNTER RIVER DISTRICT NEWS. [FROM OUR CORRESPONDENTS.] NEWCASTLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 27 July 1844
HUNTER RIVER DISTRICT HEWS, [FROM OUR CORRESPONDENTS.] NEWCASTLE. SEIZURE.—On Monday last Chief Constable Hannell proceeded up the channel, and disco- vered, just at low water mark, several bars of wrought iron, averaging from 16 to l8 feet in length, and weighing about 1 ½ tons; all of which he subsequently had removed to the court-house, where it now lies until identified and claimed. THE STEAMERS.—The long wished-for reduc- tion in the charge for passage money has at length taken place, and parties resident on the Hunter are now enabled to proceed to and return from Sydney at a comparatively trifling expense. We do not wish to make any comment preju- dicial to the managers of the iron steamers, but we are bound in justice to tender our grateful acknowledgments to the proprietors of the Sophia Jane for being instrumental in effecting so desirable a benefit to the inhabitants of this and the adjacent districts. They were the first to act upon the hint thrown out respecting the exce...

PUBLIC MEETING TO PETITION FOR THE DREDGING MACHINE. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 27 July 1844
PUBLIC MEETING TO PETITION POR THE DREDGING MACHINE. A public meeting was held on Tuesday last, pursuant to advertisement, at the Northum- berland Hotel, for the purpose of petitioning for the dredging machine to be sent to the Hunter River, to clear the obstructions in its channel. E. C. CLOSE, Esq., was moved into the chair, and commenced the proceedings by reading the the requisition which had been made to him to call the present meeting ; and said that having thus laid before them the objects of the meeting, he would mention one or two objections which he thought would be urged with considerable force again«t the promotion of their wishes. He was not sure that the government would let the" dredging machine come up lo the Hunter River without ita being insured; for it was a cum- bersome and one sided craft; the machine being all on one side, the stuff raised from the bed of the river being thrown into the other side.' But, supposing this objection cleared up, and the machine brou...

HUNTER RIVER DISTRICT NEWS. [FROM OUR CORRESPONDENTS.] SINGLETON. Business goes on in its old monotonous manner ; in fact, it may be reported to be " flat and unprofitable," but as times are said to be improving in Sydney, it is to be hoped that this little town will ere long experience the benefit of that improvement ; an improvement " de- voutly to be wished" by all who have the best interests of the district at heart. Never did the sun of Patrick's Plains arise in greater splendour than on Saturday morning last, shedding forth his benignant beams upon the just and the unjust, the peaceable and the bloodthirsty. Towards noon, considerable ex- citement was caused in our usually quiet town by a report that a duel, which might have been attended by very disastrous consequences, had been happily prevented by the well-timed arrival on the ground of a friend, invested with " a little brief authority," attended by two outriders, and who, of course, bound the heroes over to keep the peace...

HUNTER RIVES DISTRICT NEWS. Y LFROM OUR CORRESPONDENTS.] t SINGLETON. Now that we have enjoyed refreshing showers of rain for four consecutive days, the Plains, which the Herald's correspondent aptly compares to the "floor of a dining room without any carpet," will very speedily assume a much more cheering aspect ; and, should the weather prove a little more genial, all nature will begin to smile, for it is to be hoped that the worst of the season is now over- The mornings and the evenings may be very chilly, if not frosty, for at least a month yet; but should the "radiant source of day" bestow his fructifying influence for a few hours in the middle of the day, there will be a rapid shooting forth of vegetation, affording food to both man and beast, as well as renewing the parched, stunted, sere foliage of the " boshe." The river, which has not been in the slightest degree affected by the slight showers, except being a little muddified, has for a length of time flowed very sluggishl...

COMMERCIAL REMARKS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 3 August 1844
COMMERCIAL REMARKS. Business has been very slack during the week, the continued rain having kept people in-doors unless obliged to be abroad. Sugar has been sold by the ton a little lower, but as it is reported to be on the rise in Sydney, it will probably rise also here; it is said that the Sydney Sugar Company has suspended operations for the present, and as a consequence their sugars are expected to get scarce, and have risen in price. Raisins are very scarce; there is hardly one week's consumption left in Maitland, and letters from Sydney say that none can be got there. Cigars, rice, and brandy are also reported as likely to rise. Tallow is taken rather readily in exchange for goods, or part cash, and a quantity thus disposed of has realised £25 per ton. Hides also meet a ready market in the same way, and good salted have fetched 6s., superior 6s. 6d. each. Pelts with the wool on are in fair demand at Is. to Is. Od. if of good size ; a load was disposed of during the week at 9d....

MAITIiAIffD DISTRICT COWCIZi. On Tuesday a meeting of the District Council was held at their rooms, East Maitland. Present -E. C. Close, Esq., Warden, Messrs. W. Innes, A. Lang, and P. Green. The WARDEN said they had mej; there pur- suant to adjournment, but he thought they could not do much, since the decision of the Legis- lative Council on the District Councils Act. He supposed the only thing to be done now would be to get in all the accounts and see how much they owed. The other day they had ap- peared to receive new life, in the addition of two elected members, but the Legislative Council seemed to have put an entire stop to their working. He supposed they must get up a petition to the Governor to put them in a position to act, or to assist them in meeting the expenses already incurred. Mr. GREEN suggested that perhaps in a short time they would receive instructions from his Excellency. The WARDEN said they might depend upon it they should not hear a word unless they applied, t...
