HUNTER RIVER DISTRICT NEWS. [FROM OUR CORRESPONDENTS.] SINGLETON. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 24 August 1844
HUKTBR RIVER DISTRICT HEWS. [FROM OUR CORRESPONDENTS.] SINGLETON. For several days our old friends, the nor westers, have re-visited us, and have blown as if it was there "first appearance this season." One day, in particular, the wind was rather strong, and it was amusing to see men and boys, muttering to themselves, and running after their hats, which were caught often after a good run. To trace the weather of late through all its variations would be a " work of supereroga- tion ;" it has been sufficiently varied to treat "rheumatic martyrs" to a few twinges, as mementoes, and the " susceptible" to a variety of colds, somewhat resembling influenza, but, fortunately, not in every instance severe enough to require the aid of a medico. Now that the roads are in a more passable condition, though still far from being what they should be, the mail is more regular in its arrival ; and were we not assuming too much, we would suggest the propriety of the driver's being fur - nished with a ...
PUBLIC MEETING. EXTENDED JURISDICTION OF THE COURTS OF REQUESTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 24 August 1844
OTB&IC HXSBTim». EXTENDED JURISDICTION OF THE COURTS OF REQUESTS. On Wednesday a public meeting of the inhabitants was held, pursuant to notice, at the Northumberland Hotel, Maitland, to take into consideration the bill now before the Legislative Council for extending the £30 jurisdiction of the Courts of Requests. E. C. Close, Esq., in the chair. The CHAIRMAN said he would open the proceedings by reading the requisition which had been sent to him to call the meeting, though he was sorry to see the Maitland people were so indifferent to the question of whether they should or should not have an extended jurisdiction to their Court of Requests that they were satisfied to let ten or twelve people represent their interests at that meeting. However, as they had waited some time, it would be better to proceed to business. He then proceeded to read the requisition and reply. Mr. M'CLELLAND said he rose- to move the first resolution with much pleasure, though he was confident there ...

THE MAITLAND MERCURY. SATURDAY, AUGUST 24, 1844. THE DREDGING MACHINE PETITION. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 24 August 1844
THE MAITLAND MERCURY, SATURDAY, AUGUST 24, 1844. THE DREDGING MACHINE PETITION. THE petition praying that the dredging machine might be sent to clear the channel of the river Hunter was presented to his ' Excellency the Governor on Tuesday morning last, by the hon. the Speaker of the Legislative Council, R. Windeyer, Esq., M.C., and W. Foster, Esq., M.C. Major Wentworth was not present, owing, we believe, to his not having received the letter stating the time appointed for the presentation of the petition. We have been favoured by one of the deputation with the following account of the interview. The letter is dated August 20. The deputation met at the Council Chamber this morning, and afterwards went to Govern- ment House. The five Port Phillip members had just had an interview with his Excellency to prevail on him to make Geelong a free port, and had taken the opportunity to urge upon him a claim for the dredging machine. The deputa- tion having announced their business, presented...
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 — 24 August 1844
SYxnrcnr NEWS. WHOLESALE PRICES OF COLONIAL FARM AND DAIRY PRODUCE IN THE SYDNEY MARKETS DURING THE PRESENT WEEK. WHEAT AND FLOUR both continue at the same figure as in my last. MAIZE is also unchanged, Is. to Is 2d. being the present value. BARLEY.-English barley continues dull, the demand being small ; Cape barley is very diffi- cult to dispose of. HAY.-This market continues well supplied, but the demand is good. BACON AND HAMS, of a description to suit the Sydney market, would sell fairly, but at present we are completely glutted with fat and large qualities, which will not sell. EGGS may be still quoted at 6d. BUTTER.-This article sells briskly, the sup- ply being insufficient to keep pace with the demand. CHEESE still shows improvement in demand, but none in prices. PIGS, of small and plump description, are in demand, and sell immediately. POTATOES are very dull ; prices unchanged. TALLOW is very easily disposed of, but the price still continues as quoted before. HIDES.-A sligh...
ON CATTLE. To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 24 August 1844
ON CATTLE. To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. SIRS-The interest you evince for the promo- tion of all agricultural pursuits will be some apology for intruding my remarks in the columns of your valuable journal. The deplorable reduction in the value of cattle is scarcely less to be regretted than the want of zeal, judgment, and attention, at present so manifest in the colonial herd ; and yet there is no country to which a superior breed would be of such primary consequence as to the colony of New South Wales. We have seen-and with grief I aver it multitudes of cattle on their road to the boiling down establishments, that were really and truly less fitted for that purpose than any others. The same quantity of cattle could be made to produce, at an earlier age, by a due regard to the principles of breeding, double the quantity of fat. Size, and not quality, appears to have been the great object of the breeder. Large animals, without quality as general stock, will be found on inspe...
MAITLAND REGATTA. To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 24 August 1844
MAITLAND REGATTA. To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. GENTLEMEN-As it is generally imagined that you gentlemen of the press, if not gifted with the wondrous faculty of " second sight," are at least cognisant of all that is moving around and about you, I wish to know if there be any truth in the report that the "Aquatics" of Maitland intend getting up a regatta to come off early in October. I know that you in your own individual persons have a penchant for this particular amusement, and so have I, to tell the truth, and so I dare say have many others ; and how it happens that the banks of our delightful and picturesque river so seldom resound to the music of the " plashing oar" I am at a loss to discover. Certain it is that it abounds with sunny spots and sequesterd nooks sufficient to tempt either the poet or the lover to revel in their recesses, and as one means of making us better acquainted with them, I hail with pleasure the rumour of forthcoming events to which I have just ...

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. COURTS OF REQUESTS. To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 31 August 1844
OBXGXKT.aX. CORRESPONDENCE. COURTS OF REQUESTS. To the Editors of the Maitland Mcrcuri/. Gentlemen-It is not likely at the present that the District Council system will come into operation (and it is not fitting it should); but the old adage says, " out of evil comes good." I therefore thought if the Council commenced its operations we should in the first place get a Court of Requests, so greatly wanted in this district. I have long waited, expecting every week some of your subscribers would be induced to lay claim to your generosity in begging you to give the executive a blast of your trumpet. We have no means whatever for the recovery of small debts, the nearest court being at Muswell Brook, upwards of seventy miles hence, but which has no jurisdiction over us. We have a police and a post office, public pound, and various general storekeepers in the town; there are other townships within the district, but all without the mean3 of civil legal resort ; consequently the unprincipled ...
