THE MAITLAND MERCURY. SATURDAY, AUGUST 10, 1844. EXTENDED JURISDICTION OF THE COURTS OF REQUESTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 10 August 1844

THE MAITLAND MERCURY, SATURDAY, AUGUST 10, 1844. EXTENDED JURISDICTION OF THE COURTS OF REQUESTS. ON Thursday last a bill was brought into the Legislative Council by Mr. Lord for extending the á¿30 jurisdiction of the Courts of Requests to the towns of Bathurst, Maitland, and Berrima, and for providing for the office of the Commis- sioner of such courts being filled by the Chairman of the Court of Quarter Sessions. The bill was read a first time, and is appointed to be read a second time on Thursday next, the 15th instant. The bill introduced by Mr. Lord is very good so far as it goes ; but we can hardly see why its operation should be confined to the towns of Bathurst, Mait- land, and Berrima. If the enlarged jurisdiction of the Courts of Requests has been found to work well in the county of Cumberland, it would be much better to introduce some comprehensive and well digestod measure for extending to the colonists generally the benefits of a cheap and summary recovery of debts unde...

LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. WEDNESDAY, JULY 31, 1844. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 10 August 1844

£EGXS3bATXVE COTTNCIZ.. WEDNESDAY, JULY 31, 1844. The SPEAKER said there appeared to be some delicacy on the part of Messrs. Foster and Windeyer in acting as counsel on the privilege prosecution, and he thought it advisable the house should instruct him to retain them. After a few remarks in deprecation of the house interfering from the Attorney General, Messrs. Darvall, Wentworth, and others, the subject was abandoned without any steps being taken. The COLONIAL SECRETARY laid on the table bank returns for the quarter ending June 30. Mr. ROBINSON presented a petition from the Bourke District Council, on the tolls on the Yarra Yarra. Mr. ROBINSON presented a petition from the collectors of the electoral lists for Melbourne, stating that they had not been paid, and praying relief. After a few words from the COLONIAL SECRETARY, the petition was referred to the Franchise Committee. Mr. ROBINSON presented a similar petition from the Town Clerk of Melbourne, which was also referred to the...

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

COMMERCIAL REMARKS. The continued rain in the early part of the week, and the very bad state of the roads, have caused almost a stoppage to ordinary trade. The report that the Sydney Sugar Company had suspended operations seems to have been incorrect, as considerable quantities of their sugars have been sent to Maitland in the week, and no remark made as to such stoppage. Cigars are getting scarce. Little business has been done in tallow, hides, or pelts. A large amount of leather has been sent off up the country. * The manufacture of leather in Maitland is decidedly on the increase, and the article produced being good, it is in constant demand, and at present entirely con- sumed in the Hunter River district. Leaf tobacco is in demand, at 4d. to 4Jd. for good and best, but none has reached town this week. A considerable quantity of colonial tobacco, manufactured by the settlers, has been hawked about the town from storekeeper to storekeeper, but we could not hear of any being purcha...

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

LATE ENGLISH NEWS. By the Maria Somes, which has arrived at j Hobart Town, English news to the end of April has been received. The Shamrock, from Launceston and Port Phillip on Wednesday last, has brought the intelligence to this colony, and we extract the following from the Sydney papers. The Queen's accouchement was expected to take place in the beginning of July. The application of Mr. O'connell and the other traversers for a new trial had been refused, and they were to be brought up for judgment on the 4th May. The London Gazette of April 22nd announced the appointment of John Node Dickenson, Esq., as one of the Judges of the Supreme Court of New South Wales. Parliament assembled on the 15th April after the Easter recess. Ministers were twice defeated on the Factories Bill, which has been withdrawn for the present, with an understanding that a similar measure will be introduced next session. The Dundee "Warder says, " Sir James Graham plainly intimated in parliament that if agai...

SYDNEY NEWS. WHOLESALE PRICES OF COLONIAL FARM AND DAIRY PRODUCE IN THE SYDNEY MARKET, DURING THE PRESENT WEEK.

PIGS are saleable, witho...

LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. THURSDAY, AUGUST 8. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 17 August 1844

-LEGISLATIVE COTTWCH,. THURSDAY, AUGUST 8. Dr. NicHOLSOw^enquired from the Colonial Secretary what was the regulation adopted by the government with respect to the transmission of public documents addressed to members of the Council by post ? The COLONIAL SECRETARY replied that government were disposed to adopt a practice similar to that which prevailed in the mother country, of allowing such documents to be transmitted free, provided they did not exceed six ounces in weight, and were open at both ends. It was not, however, certain that the government had power to do this, and a reference had been made to the law officers of the crown. If they should be of opinion that the govern- ment had not this power at present, a bill could be introduced to give it them, and it should have his support. Mr. ROBINSON gave notice that he would on Thursday, August 22nd, move that an address be presented to his Excellency praying for returns of all expenses incurred in public works, places of public...

SYDNEY NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 17 August 1844

SYDNEY NEWS. The blacks have again become very trouble- some at Moreton Bay. Several drays have been robbed, and a number of cattle belonging to different parties speared. The blacks themselves justify these proceedings on the ground of retaliation; one of their tribe, called Docto, having been poisoned by a convict named Seller, employed on a government station at Lime- stone. Seller it seems was in the habit of encouraging Docto's gin to remain at his hut, at which the black fellow took umbrage, and beat the gin. Seller invited Docto into his hut to partake of tea and fritters, and soon after his leaving the hut he was seized with severe pains and vomitings, and shortly afterwards died. His body was exhumed, and on examination his stomach was found to contain a quantity of arsenic, an article which Seller was in the habit of using to harden tallow before packing it. Seller is now in custody. COLONIAL IMPORTS.-The amount of imports at Port Phillip and Sydney for the quarter ending ...
