COMMERCIAL REMARKS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 11 March 1843

COMMERCIAL REMARKS: In the grain market there is very little busi- ness doing, most of the small settlers having sold off what they had in hand, whilst those who can afford to keep their grain are holding back on account of the low prices. Wheat may be now quoted at from 4s 3d per bushel to 5s 3d ; barley, from 3s to 3s 6d ; old maize 4s 6d. Some new maize, of the kind called Cobbett's, or ninety day corn, has been brought into the market, and sold for 3s 9d per bushel. It is expected that á tolerably fair quantity of this corn will be in the market in the course of a short time ; the samples which have been already produced are of very fair quality. There has been no alteration in the price of flour, with the exception of ration flour, at Mr. Portus's mills, Morpeth, which is now 12s per 100 lb. Fat wethers are now selling at from 8s to 9s each, and there is a good demand for lean sheep. Money is, however, extremely scarce, and there is little or no advance in prices.

INDIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 11 March 1843

INDIA. Intelligence from India up to the 16th of December has reached the colony. The high minded and heroic Lady Sale and the other British prisoners had been restored to liberty, after having been in the hands of Akhbar Khan for nearly twelve months. Akhbar had ordered them to be sent to Turkistan as slaves, and it is thought the chief to whom they were entrusted was bribed to assist in their escape. Cabool had been taken by the forces of Nott and Pollock, and its grand bazaar, which was considered the grand emporium of that part of Central Asia, had been destroyed by gunpowder. The British then commenced their retreat from Affghanistan, but were much annoyed by the enemy, and lost 7 officers and about 20 men in their passage of the Khyber Pass. In a proclamation put forth by the Governor General he has promised to liberate Dost Mahomed Khan and all the Affghan prisoners so soon as the British army should have passed the Indus. On the 10th November Calcutta and Seram- pore were vi...

To the Independent Electors of the Counties of 'Cook and Hunter. GENTLEMEN-Induced by the solicita- tions of many valued friends-elec-   tors 'of your Counties-I take the liberty of offering myself as a Candidate to Represent your interests in the forthcoming Legislative Council of this Colony. In thus coming forward, I beg to say, that al- though I cannot boast of being an Australian by birth, I may claim to be regarded as an Australian by adoption. Having spent nearly the whole of my life (a period of forty-five years) in the colony,     for upwards of thirty of which I have been actively engaged in practical grazing and agri- culture; having lent a helping hand to reclaim the once wild and inhospitable forests of Aus- tralia to be, what they now are, well tilled and cultivated fields and pasture grounds ; and hav- ing also a numerous family, sons of the soil ; I think these circumstances may in some measure qualify me for the important disti...

To the Independent Electors of the Boroughs of East and West maitland and Newcastle. GENTLEMEN - In presenting myself as a Candidate for the honour of your sup- port at the approaching Election, I consider it proper to give you an outline of my principles. I am a friend to civil and religious liberty, and an enemy to all intolerance. I am for diffusing the blessings of education as widely as possible amongst the people. I am for the most rigid economy in every department of the government. I shall co-operate with the friends of the country in endeavouring to get rid of the civil list, and to establish the right of appropriating as well as of raising the public revenue. This endeavour failing, I shall contend that the territorial revenue be conceded to us as an equivalent, on the same principle as it has been conceded in Canada. Seeing that the district councils created by the new Act of Parliament will entail a heavy local expenditure on the country districts, for improvements of al...

HUNTER RIVER DISTRICT NEWS. [FROM OUR CORRESPONDENTS.] MURRURUNDI. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 18 March 1843

HUNTER RIVER DISTRICT NEWS. [FROM OUR CORRESPONDENTS.] MURRURUNDI Our district is comparatively quiet, no, bush rangers troubling us now; the only annoyance we are subject to is want of business, money being very scarce, and the greater part of what we do get consists of bad orders and forgeries. Scarcely a week has passed since the police force has been established here but two or three persons have been taken into custody for trying to palm their forgeries on the public. In fact, it is dangerous to take orders or cheques without the signature of the party drawing is well known. It would be conferring a great boon on the inhabitants of this and the surrounding districts if the squatters beyond the boundary would let the public know the names of the parties they allow to draw upon them, and also to let them know by public advertisement when they dis- charge their overseers or superintendents, and if possible so to arrange it as to make their orders payable at one of the banks.
