THE MAITLAND MERCURY. SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 21, 1844. REPORT OF THE CROWN LAND GRIEVANCES COMMITTEE.—II. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 21 September 1844

THE MAITLAND MERCURY, -SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 21, 1844. REPORT OF THE CROWN LAND GRIEVANCES COMMITTEE.-II. The committee are -of opinion that the recall of the regulations of the 2nd of April, the abolition of the license fee, the repeal of the present Squatting Act, and the passing of another act, may quiet the present distressing feeling of uncertainty, .arising from the arbitrary powers of the commissioners, and the claim to raise a Terenue by percrogative put forth on behalf of the crown, and may give breathing time to the harrassed colonists, until the Governor and Council of the colony have received from Parliament power to provide remedies of a more general and permanent nature. If the new squatting regulations are recalled, and the powers of the Commissioners are limited, -the squatters generally can very well afford to wait until the local authorities have been empoAvered to provide remedies of a more general and permanent nature. The amount raised from assessment, it is true,...

MAITLAND CIRCUIT COURT. CRIMINAL SIDE.—TUESDAY, SEPT. 17. (Before his Honor Mr. Justice a'Beckett.) SENTENCES. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 21 September 1844

MAITLAND CIRCUIT COURT. Criminal Side.-Tuesday, Sept. 17. (Before his Honor Mr. Justice a'Beckett.) SENTENCES. John Brown, alias Ambrose Provost, who had ?been convicted of an assanlt with intent to murder, was placed at the bar, and his Honor addressed him at some length, stating that though the court would be fully justified in passing sentence of death upon the prisoner, there were circumstances in the case which disposed the court to take a merciful view of it. From some of the circumstances it might be inferred that the prisoner had not at any one time an intention of committing murder, but that he merely sought for an opportunity to rob the prosecutor with impunity, and that being disappointed in this he might have struck him with the intention of disabling him. These circumstances induced the court to look favourably on the prisoner's case, and he would therefore award that judgment of death be recorded against the prisoner, who would be transported out of the country for lif...

SYDNEY NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 21 September 1844

SYDNEY NEWS. Mr. Wentworth's Rent Clause.-On Thursday, September 12, a public meeting was held at the Royal Hotel, to take into considera- tion the clause proposed by Mr. Wentworth to be introduced into the Bill for the Amendment of the Corporation Act, to the effect that no elector should be allowed to vote who could not produce, at the time of voting, a receipt or receipts for the six months' previous continuous rent. The Mayor presided. The meeting unanimously passed two resolutions deprecating the introduction of such a clause, and appointed a committee to prepare a petition to that effeot. New Zealand.-The detachment of the 99th regiment, which it will be remembered sailed for New Zealand about six weeks back, on the receipt of news of an outbreak of the natives at the Bay of Islands, returned to Sydney on Saturday last, the 14th instant, having for the present left everything tranquil there. It appears on the arrival of the troops the Governor sought an interview with Heckie o...

NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 28 September 1844

NEW ZEALAND. The third session of the Legislative Council closed on Tuesday, July 18th. On the day previous to its adjournment the Council adopted a series of resolutions, and ordered them to be forwarded to the home government, relative to the Act of Parliament regulating the sale of Waste Lands belonging to the crown in the Australian Colonies, considering it unsuitable to the actual circumstances of the colony of New Zealand, and suggesting to her Majesty's government the propriety of repealing so much of the act as enacts that the Australian colonies shall be deemed to include New Zealand. Money appeared to be extremely scarce, and private individuals were issuing their own deben- tures. The Church Missionary Society had formed itself into a bank of issue, and it was thought their paper would be accepted of more readily than that of the government.

MAITLAND DISTRICT COUNCIL. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 28 September 1844

TVIAXTIu&ND DISTRICT COUNCIL. A meeting of this body was held on Tuesday last, pursuant to postponed adjournment. Present-E. C. Close, Esq., Warden, Messrs. Lang, Innes, Portus, and Green, Councillors. Mr. Green said in accordance with the notice given by him at the last meeting, to bring forward some measure for the considera- tion of the Council, in order to meet the already incurred expenses, he had prepared a resolution which he would submit to the Council; but before doing so he would briefly glance at the reasons which had guided him to his conclusion. Viewing the position of the Council as at present legally inactive, and not in accordance with what was intended when it was formed, owing to certain technical defects which were very perceptible to Mr. Foster and others, though he confessed they did not appear so clear to him, he was desirous to be on the safe side ; although he was of opinion that nine-tenths of the assessed population would willingly pay the expenses ...

UNITED STATES. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 28 September 1844

UNITE» STATES. By the arrival of the Ianthe at Sydney on Saturday last, from Boston, U.S., intelligence has been received of a dreadful riot which took place in Philadelphia, in which several persons lost their lives, and twenty-nine houses and two Catholic churches were burnt. The disturbance appears to have arisen out of a dispute between the Irish and the native American population on the subject of education. Meetings were held by both parties, and much inflammatory lan- guage used. At a "native" meeting held in Philadelphia on the 10th May some shots were fired by the opposite party, and one individual killed. The American party upon this attempted to burn a convent, when they were fired on by the Irish party, and five of them were killed. On the following day another meeting was held, and the firing re-commenced. Seven persons were killed, and a number wounded. The civil and military forces were then called out, and order was restored ; but on the following day a large number ...

HUNTER RIVER DISTRICT NEWS. [FROM OUR CORRESPONDENTS.] JERRY'S PLAINS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 28 September 1844

KÎTNTSE UIVER DISTRICT HEWS. [from our correspondents.] JERRY'S PLAINS. I am sorry to say the wheat crops are going off very fast. We have had scarcely any rain here, and a hot westerly wind which blew all last Saturday night and Sunday appears to have finished all that had escaped the blighting influ- ence of the previous drought. Nothing but an immediate and copious fall of rain can in any degree retrieve the disastrous condition of our agricultural prospects in this quarter. Three of those wanderers from the sea, peli- cans, have been amusing themselves in the. river hereabouts for the last week. Their first appearance here has been construed by some of our wiseacres into a sign of continued dry weather. September 26th. SINGLETON. Upwards of four hundred signatures to one petition, versus about thirty to another, have declared " The Irish Stew" to be a very unpa- latable dish, and are of opinion that the colonial agent should send it back to the noble inventor without delay.

COMMERCIAL REMARKS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 28 September 1844

COMMERCIAL REMARKS. Business appears to have been been steady during the week, a fair amount having been transacted. Cattle appear to be on the rise rather briskly. We have heard of a large herd of Mr. Went- worths cattle, which had arrived at Winder- mere from some of that gentleman's stations, having been sold in Sydney for £4 10s. per head ; and that the herd had in consequence been sent thither overland. During the week beef and mutton have nearly doubled their price, beef now being sold for 1 £d. and mutton at 2d. per lb. A tolerable fair quantity of wheat has been brought into town during the week; some of which has been sold for 2s. lOd. per bushel, whilst the best samples have realised 3s. 6d. The average price appears to be 3s. to 3s. 3d. There has been scarcely any barley offered for sale, and the price remains unaltered. Maize still keeps much about the same price, not bringing more than 9d. to lOd. per bushel for the Sydney market, and realising about Is. for home consum...

THE MAITLAND MERCURY. SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 28, 1844. REPORT FROM THE SELECT COMMITTEE ON DISTRESSED LABOURERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 28 September 1844

THE MAITLAND MEECURY, SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER -28, 1844. REPORT FROM TIIE SELECT COMMITTEE ON DISTRESSED LABOURERS. The committee of the Legislative Council -appointed to "inquire into the state of distress alleged to exist among certain agricultural and other labourers and mechanics with -families, and to suggest the means of affording them such relief as -may appear requisite," presented their report to the Council on Thursday, the 19th instant. The committee are of opinion that distress to a considerable extent does exist in Sydney, particularly amongst mechanics, arising from want of employment ; and that this distress appears to be aggravated by numbers flocking in from the interior, and thus glutting the labour market of Sydney, which was previously overstocked. The -committee consider that the sums of money voted by the Council for carrying on public works in Sydney, with the view of relieving the unemployed, has been the means of attracting many from the country. Amongst those w...
