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

COMMERCIAL REMARKS. Business still continues dull) which is probably owing to the roads being so bad that scarcely any produce can be brought into town, though there has been somewhat more activity during the past week than for the previous week or two. Little or no business has been done in hides or pelts, scarcely any having been brought into the market. Good salted hides are realising about 6s. Gd. each ; pelts are fetching from Is. to 2s. with the wool on, and from Id. to 2d. without wool. Soap we hear is on the advance in the Sydney market. In leaf tobacco little has been done, and the price has undergone no alteration. An excellent sample of colonial tobacco was brought in from the Wollombi this week, but it realised only lOd. per lb., the market being overstocked. In bacon and hams there has been but little doing ; a very good sample from the Wollambi brought only 2Jd. per lb., being purchased for the Sydney market. Wheat appears to have made a slight advance, 3s. 3d. to 3s. ...

SYDNEY NEWS. WHOLESALE PRICES OF COLONIAL FARM AND DAIRY PRODUCE IN THE SYDNEY MARKETS DURING THE PRESENT WEEK. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 17 August 1844

SYDNEY HEWS. WHOLESALE PRICES OF COLONIAL FARM AND DAIRY PRODUCE IN THE SYDNEY MARKETS DURING THE PRESENT WEEK. WHEAT.-This market has undergone no change during the week, and good samples are realising about the same prices. FLOUR still remains stationary, without devia- tion in prices. MAIZE continues realising about the same prices, fluctuating from Is to Is 2d per bushel for the best samples. CAPE BARLEY is scarcely saleable. ENGLISH BARLEY meets with very few purchasers, and sales exceedingly limited. HAY.-The late rains have prevented the arrival of large quantities of hay, causing rather brisker sales, but without deviation in price ; the market, however, is well supplied. BACON AND HAMS.-The description that has lately been sent to market is much too fat and large, consequently is very unsaleable, and at present has completely glutted the market, which must naturally cause a great loss to the shippers. Parties curing bacon for the Sydney market should be very particular in t...

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

LATE ENGLISH NEWS. By the arrival of the Meg Merrilies on Wed- nesday last, which vessel left the Downs on the 2nd May, English intelligence has been received in the colony up to that period, being a week later than by previous arrivals. The Ceylon, from the Downs April 6th, arrived the day previous, bringing the largest mail ever received in the colony, containing 4959 letters and 12,063 newspapers. On Thursday morning there were still large numbers of newspapers and letters in the post office. We give below a summary of the most important news. The Court of Directors of the East India Company, in virtue of the power vested in them by Parliament in 1780, had recalled Lord Ellen- borough from the Governor Generalship of India, in direct opposition to the wishes of the govern- ment. This power has never before been exer- cised by the Court of Directors, and the reasons which have induced them to take this step had not transpired. Sir H. Pottinger was named as the probable successor o...

THE MAITLAND MERCURY. SATURDAY, AUGUST 17, 1844. DREDGING MACHINE PETITION. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 17 August 1844

THE MAITLAND MEECUEY, SATURDAY, AUGUST 17, 1844. DREDGING MACHINE PETITION. ON Monday last this petition, which had received exactly 1500 signatures, was for- warded to R. Windeyer, Esq., M.C., for presentation to his Excellency the Governor ; and we understand it was to be presented to his Excellency either yesterday or to-day, by a deputation con- sisting of the Hon. the Speaker of the Legislative Council, Mi-. Windeyer, Mr. Foster, and Major Wentworth. PUBLIC WORKS. OUR fellow colonists at Port Phillip have certainly secured several very active and efficient representatives in the Legislative Council, in regard to their anxiety to look after the interests of that district, on every occasion that may present itself, as well as in moving for a variety of returns on different questions affecting its prosperity or condition. It seems to us, however, that in their anxiety to satisfy their constituents, the members for Port Phillip have produced an effect on the Council unfavourable to...

COLONIAL INTELLIGENCE. PORT PHILLIP. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 17 August 1844

CO-LO-NX&X. IXTTEIiXiIGEXrCE. PORT PHILLIP. A soap factory is about to be established at Portland, by Mr. Johns, a gentleman who has had considerable experience in the manufacture of that article. Trade is progressively improving in the Portland district, a greater degree of confidence being manifested, and credit more freely given than at any former period of the past twelve months. The committee for obtaining the privileges of a free warehousing port for Geelong were proceeding vigorously, and had determined upon taking a census of the town.

HUNTER RIVER DISTRICT NEWS. [FROM OUR CORRESPONDENTS.] MERTON. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 17 August 1844

HUKTTER RIVER "DISTRICT NEWS. [FROM OUR CORRESPONDENTS.] MERTON. THE WEATHER.-The weather here has been for the last fortnight extremely mild and salubrious, with frequent showers of rain, which has had the effect of changing the aspect of the whole district. The wheat crops are now beginning to assume a strong and healthy appearance. MAIL ACCIDENT.-On Wednesday last the mail for this place from Jerry's Plains had not proceeded far on the road before one of the wheels got into a hole, which occasioned so great a shock that the driver was precipitated from his seat. The horses were startled, and in their efforts to extricate the vehicle broke the reins, and thus becoming ungovernable they ran the coach up against a tree, by which the shafts were broke and the horses got away. They were however found on the following day. We are happy to say that the driver received no injury, and no further damage was done than the breaking of the shafts and the guard iron of the coach.

ORIGINAL POETRY. LINES ON THE DEATH OF A YOUNG LADY, AGED EIGHTEEN. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 17 August 1844

ORIGINAL POETRY. LINES ON THE DEATH OF A YOUNG LADY, AGED EIGHTEEN. How sad and solemn 'tis to see Those whom we love depart ; To gaze on cold mortality, And feel our warm tears start. To bend us o'er the coffin'd dead (Unconscious we are near)-> To kneel-to pray for the spirit fled From this troubled earthly sphere. How silent, calm, seems all around This narrow room of death ; Our voices hushed, we check each sound, We stifle sighs and breath. Ali, happy dead ! on thy cold brow The smile of bliss seems there ; < The rose-tinct on thy cheeks doth glow, Unearthly, yet how fair ! What doth this mean ? Tis Heaven's own power Revealing thy joys and bliss I Happy on earth, thy parting hour Was calm and hollowed as this. Thou'rt gone to the haven of peace and love I "We speak-there's no reply : Thou'rt joining the seraph choirs above In hymns of rhapsody. Thy life was holy, noble, kind, As pure as thou wert fair : Thou'rt now in heaven ; there enshrined, Eternal bliss to sh...
