THE MURDER AT THE WILLIAM. On Saturday last Benjamin Stanley, who was convicted at the last assizes of the murder of Robert Campbell, was informed by the governor of Newcastle gaol that he was ordered for execution on Thursday, the 24th of October instant. Up to that time he had refused to confess any participation in the murder, but in the course of that day he confessed, both to Major Crummer and the Rev. Mr. Wilton, that he was an accomplice in the intended robbery, but did not commit the act himself, or see it committed. His tale is that he was informed by Garrett, who was in the employ of Mr. Gordon, bailiff to the Court of Requests, that Campbell had received a considerable sum of money, which he would take home with him by a particular road. That he, Stanley, then agreed to rob Campbell with an acquaintance of his named Millington Farrah, commonly known as Sloan's George, with whom he went over the   Hinton punt on the day Campbell was to return home, and having ...

HTXKTTER XtXVESt »XSTSXCT NEWS. [from our correspondents.] NEWCASTLE.-Police Office. (Before Majors Crummer and Last.) i During the last ten days we have had a j considerable number of cases tried before this court, many of which occupied the magistrates I until a very late hour. The following are the ' principal cases, although the prisoners who ¡ have been summarily tried of late have exceeded the average number. Monday, October 7, 1814. Wm.

THE MAITLAND MERCURY. SATURDAY, OCTOBER 26, 1844. HIS EXCELLENCY'S VISIT. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 26 October 1844

THE MAITLAND MERCUEY. SATURDAY, OCTOBER 23, 1844. HIS excf.llency's VISIT. The inhabitants of the Hunter River j district have been rather earnest and active ¡ during the last twelve months in pressing upon his Excellency's attention their wants and claims as a community. To some, and perhaps to his Excellency, it may have appeared that they have been over importunate in urging their claims ; but I it must be borne in mind, as a justification j of their recent activity, that during the > two or three years previous they had i displayed a remarkable degree of easy j indifference, if not of culpable neglect, ' concerning their legitimate interests as a i large section of the community. We are ' anxious to acknowledge the readiness and cordiality with which the Governor has granted the prayer of several of the petitions from this district; and we are quite willing to make every allowance, in reference to the petitions which have been unsuccessful, for the extremely difficult positio...

HIS EXCELLENCY THE GOVERNOR'S VISIT TO THE HUNTER. NEWCASTLE. His Excellency the Governor, accompanied by Lady Gipps, Captain Moriarty, port master of Sydney, and E. Merewether, Esq., his Excel- lency's aide-de-camp, arrived at Newcastle on Thursday morning, by the Rose steamer, about half past six o'clock.

After leaving the gaol his Excellency went over to Nobby's Island, and inspected the works going on at that place, and listened attentively and patiently to every complaint which any of the prisoners had to make.

THE MAITLAND REGATTA. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 26 October 1844

TUE IVIAÏTiANI» REGATTA. On Monday last the first Maitland Regatta came off, with fully as much success as could have been reasonably expected for the first attempt in a place where three weeks previously there was hardly a boat on the river fit for con- testing a race. The weather was very fine, and the state of the river wa3 as favorable as it could possibly have been to enable the sports to go off with eclat, a slight fresh having come down the river on Saturday evening, and con- tinued during Sunday and Monday, so that when the races commenced the river was about two feet higher than usual, and the weeds kept close to the banks by the current, which was running about two miles or better an hour. Just before ten o'clock the steamer Huntress, having been fitted up by Mr. Yeomans with an awning, a bar, benches, and tables, was towed down to the head of Macdougall's Falls, very »near the coming-in buoy at the bottom of Hunter-street, the main point of attraction during the day; and ...

ORIGINAL POETRY. THE ANGEL OF DREAMS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 26 October 1844

THE ANGEL OF DREAMS. (Suggested by Sir E. L. Bulwer's tale of "The Pilgrims of the Rhine.") Through the crowded city I've wing'd my flight, My torch and my guide the moon's pale light. I've smiled on the couch of the lone and sad, Nor left them not till their hearts were glad; And theirs -were dreams of pleasure and mirth, Of joys they never will know on earth. I've frowned on the miser that gloating lay, Till he fancied his god-his gold-was away ! Ho woke in his terror ; I flitted on From that loathsome scene to a brighter one. A light far off showed a chamber where A maiden was bent in holiest prayer; But I scarce could deem that the dull, cold earth Had given to so much loveliness birth. The blush on her cheek was as fresh and bright As an opening rose bud pillowed on light, And her golden hair o'er her marble brow "Were as streaks of light on a world of snow; While her dark blue eye looked upward and far, Tho' its future home was in some bright star. Immortal myself, yet it brou...
