NEWCASTLE HARBOUR. To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 3 August 1844

NEWCASTLE HARBOUR. To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. GENTLEMEN-In your leading article of the 6th July you dwell upon the necessity of having | the harbour of Newcastle well and accurately surveyed, together with the navigable portion of the river Hunter ; and the spirit in which that article is written would lead the reader to conclude that it was a duty incumbent upon the inhabitants of this small but enterprising town to take immediate steps towards the accomplish ment of this great but necessary work. This, gentlemen, is too much to expect from them. In as much as can be reasonably looked for from them, the district, I take upon myself to affirm, will never be disappointed. The inhabitants of Newcastle are neither idle nor indifferent ; there is not the slightest falling off in their zeal for the great cause ; neither are they satisfied that all is done because the prayer of the petition has been granted ; they are aware that permission to trade with this port must be foll...

THE MAITLAND MERCURY. SATURDAY, AUGUST 3, 1844. DISTRICT COUNCILS BILL. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 3 August 1844

THE MAITLAND MERCURY, SATURDAY, AUGUST 3, 1844. DISTRICT COUNCILS BILL. OUR Legislative Councillors are a funny lot of mortals. Last year they took out of the hands of the general government, by abolishing the Colonial Engineer's Department, the means of keeping our roads and bridges in repair. This year, by strangling the District Councils Bill, they refuse to put our local councils in a position to take the roads and bridges under their care. For every impediment to business, therefore, which arises from bad roads and bridges, and for every loss of life (human and animal) and accident resulting from the same cause, the public may hold their representatives in Council almost entirely responsible; and we would suggest to Mr. Lipscomb's friend, our worthy coroner, the propriety of transferring his kind intentions, in the event of loss of life, from the Maitland District Council, to the lion, members for Durham and Northumberland. The District Councils Bill was read a first time on We...

THE SOPHIA JANE. To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 3 August 1844

THE SOPHIA JANE. To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. GENTLEMEN - It is an old adage, and true as old, that competition is good for the public at large ; but to this, as to all other blessings, there is a proper limit, for ruinous competition is, in the end, worse than no competition at all. I am led to these remarks by the present position of the Hunter River Steam Company's vessels and their rival the Sophia Jane. It is well known that before the latter vessel resumed her trips to the Hunter the charges of the Hunter River Company were, to say the least, by far too high, taking into consideration the reduction in every other department of colonial policy; * * and there was an air of independence about the whole, from the managing clerk to the minors, that reminded one of people " waxing fat and kicking." No sooner, however, did the Sophia Jane make her start than some signs of change became evident. At first it is true that the idea of her running was ridiculed ; but when it wa...

IiBaiSIiATIVE COTJÏTCII.. WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 7, 1844. The SPEAKER announced the assent of his Excellency on behalf of the Queen to the Law of Evidence Bill. A message was received from his Excellency acknowledging the receipt of an address for a return of the revenues and other privileges and immunities promised hy Sir It. Bourke to the inhabitants of Sydney, and stating that the government had no records of such promises further than were contained in the printed proceedings of the late Legislative Council for July, 1835. A letter from Mr. Elwin was read to the Council acknowledging the vote of thanks passed by the house. The letter was ordered to be printed.

HUNTER RIVER DISTRICT NEWS. [FROM OUR CORRESPONDENTS.] SINGLETON. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 10 August 1844

HUNTER RIVES DISTRICT NEWS. [FROM OUR CORRESPONDENTS.] SINGLETON. The weather, which had apparently cleared up on the 29th ult., suddenly changed on Wednes- day last, and showers of rain continued to fall till after daylight on Sunday morning, when the clouds once more disappeared, and we enjoyed a most delightful day; the air was calm and serene, and for the season of the year unusually warm. An empty tub, which had been left out on Saturday night, apart from any building, was found, on the following morning, to have col- lected nearly an inch and a half of rain ; this will prove that a great deal of rain must have fallen between Saturday night and Sunday morning. From the appearance of the eastern horizon, it is evident that Maitland has had a great share of the "bountiful fall;" and while the spirits of the settlers, great and small, have been much elated, the spirits of travellers have been, in an equal ratio, depressed, hy the roads in every direction being in a " shocking had"...

ENGLISH NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 10 August 1844

ENGLISH NEWS. By the St. Vincent, immigrant ship, news has been received up to the 13th April from London, and to the 16th from Cork. The Queen and the Royal Family were well. Prince Albert had returned from a visit to his brother, the new duke of Saxe Coburg Gotha. Trade was brisk, and foreign and colonial wools were in fair demand. New South Wales tallow had recently sold at 35s. 6d. to 40s. 6d. Cotton had fallen in price, the speculative attempts in February to raise the price having caused a reaction. It was reported confidently that negociations were on foot between the government and the Peninsular and Oriential Steam Company, distinguished for its punctual fulfilment of postage contracts, to run a line of steamers to this colony, in connection with the line from England to Calcutta. If the plan were brought to bear, of which little doubt was entertained, the time between Sydney and London would he shortened to sixty days. The sentence on O'Connell and the other defendants on ...

COLONIAL INTELLIGENCE. NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 10 August 1844

COfcONXaX INTEI.Ï.IGENCB. NEW ZEALAND. News has just arrived at Sydney from New Zealand of a series of daring outrages by the natives at Russell, in the Bay of Islands. It seems a person named Lord married a young native woman, who had not complied with a native custom, and this trifling circumstance has served as an excuse for the town of Russell being held in dread for three days, several of the inhabitants plundered of their property, their wives and daughters grossly insulted, the British flag torn down, and several houses broken open ; while the police magistrate and the police looked quietly on, or only endeavoured to prevail on the natives to retire by making them presents. After repeated fruitless applica- tions to the police magistrate for effective interference, the inhabitants prevailed on the natives to go away by giving them rice, tobacco, &c; their retiring achievement being the cutting down of the flag-staff. In consequence of these outrages it was determined ...
