MAITLAND ASSIZES SATURDAY, MARCH 18. At ten o'clock this morning his Honor took his seat upon the bench, and the jury list having been called, William Jones was placed at the bar, and indicted for stealing a sheep at Liver- pool Plains on the 15th November, 1842, the property of Captain Robert Mayne and his partner, Mr. Elwill. The prisoner was a shepherd in the employ of the prosecutor, and it appeared that a quantity of mutton was found in his cart by the overseer, and on his being ques- tioned by him, the prisoner said it was a sheep which he had found in the bush, and which belonged to the flock of another shepherd. The prisoner in his defence said the prosecution was a malicious one got up against him because he had left the station without a pass, and that on the day men- tioned he was not at the station. The jury after a short consultation returned a verdict of guilty, and the pri- soner was sentenced to be imprisoned for three calendar months in Newcastle gaol, the first and...

To the Independent Electors of the Boroughs of East and "West Maitland and Newcastle. gr~i ENTLEMEN-In presenting myself as a ^JK| Candidate for the honour of your sup- port at the approaching Election, I consider it pioper 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-opeïate with the friends of the country in endeavouring to get rid of the civil list, aricL'tcTëstabïish therighj; of apprSplrTSting' 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 impro...

HUNTER RIVER DISTRICT NEWS. [FROM OUR CORRESPONDENTS.] RAYMOND TERRACE. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 25 March 1843

HUNTER RIVER DISTRICT NEWS. [FROM OUR CORRESPONDENTS.] RAYMOND TERRACE. The late rains have improved the country about here amazingly. We have now abundance of feed for cattle. The winter crops are spring- ing up luxuriantly, and we have no apprehen- sions now for the present crops. Mr. Windeyer's friends have made a most successful canvass in this quarter, and I believe very little doubt is entertained of his eventual success. No clue has yet been found to the ruffians who committed the late depredation on Captain Crawford's estate. Twenty pounds reward has been offered by the Captain to any one giving such information as will lead to the discovery of the perpetrators, and government has offered a conditional pardon to any prisoner or ticket of leave holder on the same conditions. Great hopes are entertained of discovering the parties. NEWCASTLE. ESCAPE OF A PRISONER.-On Tuesday evening last one of the men in the iron gang, a native of Africa, made his escape, and though the soldie...

NAMOI AND BARWIN. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 25 March 1843

NAMOI AND BARWIN.         There has been some beautiful rain, and the creeks and rivers are all full, even past Daldoon and Waterloo creeks. Grass very swardy, and in some places enough to mow. In about two months it may be expected that fat cattle will be down for slaughter in abundance, and they will no doubt meet with a ready sale. It is astonishing how fast the cattle improve. We might now expect to do some good were it not for the outrages of the blacks, who are destroy- ing life and property wholesale, so that it has become very difficult to get stockmen and hut keepers, except at a rate of wages which we cannot afford to pay: We are not well used by the government : we have no commissioner, no border police, and we cannot take the law into our own hands for fear of the gallows. We are thus compelled to see our men butchered and our property destroyed without redress. We are made to pay taxes, and have in return no pro- tecti...

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. "MEND YOUR WAYS." To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. GENTLEMEN-As one whom business compels to travel the road from the Greenhills to Maitland both late and early, I am induced to bring a few observations before your readers as to the past and present state of that road. About two years since the road in question was, without an exception, the best road in the colony, but from neglect in allowing the side drains to become choked, it became gradually bad, and a petition or letter was forwarded to the officer late in the command of the stockade, who immediately sent a few men to repair it; but from the hurried manner in which it was done, and bad material being used, although the very best may be found along the whole road, it has been becoming gradually worse, until it is at last all but impassable. There are holes in the bridges, quagmires, holes, and large ones too, in which any person who may have by necessity occasion to travel by night is more than ...
