To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 2 November 1844

To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. Gentlemen-Public attention being attracted at present in your district to the improvement of the communication, I have sent you the following observations on roads, which, if you deem them worthy of notice, you can use for your paper. After giving protection to property and persons, the rulers of a country cannot bestow on it a greater benefit than the improvement of its harbours, roads, and canals, or in other words, the medium of travelling and conveyance. Wherever you find a country without the facilities of travelling, you may pronounce the people as unprosperous. Good highways form the germ of a country's industry, and without which neither commerce or society can make any considerable progress. A writer on rural subjects has said-"The conveniences and beneficial consequences which result from a free and easy communication between different parts of a country are so various, the advantages of them so generally and so extensively felt, by ...

HIS EXCELLENCY THE GOVERNOR'S VISIT TO THE HUNTER. MAITLAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 2 November 1844

HIS E3CCEI.X.ENCY THE GOVERNOR'S VISIT TO THE HUNTER. MAITLAND. On Saturday morning last his Excellency proceeded at six o'clock to visit the gaol at East Maitland, every part of which he examined, and expressed himself satisfied with the man- ner in which the work had been done. On leaving the gaol his Excellency paid a visit to the punt at Pitnacree. His Excellency then visited the court house, with which he was highly gratified, and having sent for Mr. Mayo, complimented him for his public spirit in having erected such a building. From thence his Excellency went to the stockades and soldiers' barracks, where he examined everything, and inspected the huts of the married people, dis- playing the greatest anxiety for the comfort of all. His Excellency then returned to govern- ment house, when he breakfasted. At ten o'clock about fifty or sixty of the operatives of Maitland waited upon his Excel- lency at government house, for the purpose of presenting a memorial to him praying that ...

THE MAITLAND MERCURY. SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 2, 1844. BILL TO AMEND THE SQUATTING ACT. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 2 November 1844

THE MAITLAND MERCURY. SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 2, 1844. BILL TO AMEND THE SQUATTING ACT. We have received a copy of Mr. Cowper's " Bill to repeal in part an Act intituled ' An Act to amend and continue for five years an Act intituled * An Act further to restrain the unauthorised occupation of Crown Lands, and to provide the means of defraying the expense of a Border Police;" and to make other provision for the peace, welfare, and good govern- ment of the inhabitants beyond the boundaries." The object of Mr. Cowper's bill, as will be seen by the title, is two- fold. The first and main object is to relieve the squatters from the payment of any rent for the use of the public lands of the colony ; the second is to restrain the absolute and jÄssponsible power of the Crown Land <Rmmissioners, and to bring the squatters, as far as practicable, within the control and protection of the law. This constitutional protection, however, according to the present wording of the bill, is only to...

ENGLISH NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 2 November 1844

ENGLISH NEWS. English intelligence has been received direct, by the arrival of the barque Lanchester from the Downs, on the 22nd June; and by way of Launceston to 5th July. Her Majesty's accouchement had not taken place, but she was in excellent health. The Emperor of Russia had left England. During one of his visits to Windsor a long political discussion is reported to have taken place between the Emperor and Sir Robert Peel. The ministry had sustained a signal defeat in the House of Commons on Mr. Miles's amend- ment that there should be no differential duties in favour of colonial sugars, for which there was a majority of twenty. Sir Robert Peel declared when his ministry were defeated on the Factories Bill that he would resign the first time the ministry were again defeated in any measure to which they had pledged themselves. On the evening after the defeat on sugars he made an elaborate address to the house to induce it to reconsider the vote, an unprecedented course, but which...

HUNTER RIVER DISTRICT NEWS. [FROM OUR CORRESPONDENTS.] PATERSON. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 2 November 1844

SUNTER RIVER DISTRICT TfEWS. [from our correspondents.] - PATERSON. The wheat crop, although touched with the blight, will be an average one, at least as far as we can judge at present ; some parcels will be ready for the sickle in three weeks, should the weather prove favourable. The settlers will not lose time in sending it into the market, in order to raise money, an article with which they have not been acquainted for some time. The rents charged by the landlords to the small farmers are quite out of all reason ; it is a matter of impossibility that the latter can live (except upon the meanest fare), and support the greedy capitalist who has lent money upon the land, at a high rate of interest ; as for gaining a fair remuneration for his labour, it is a thing never anticipated-the struggle is to exist. It is a fact not to be contradicted, that the nominal owners of the land can neither lower the rent, nor work the land themselves ; where then is the small settler to find labour ...

COMMERCIAL AND MARKETS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 2 November 1844

COMMERCIAL AND MARKETS. "Very little business has been transacted in Maitland this week, everything appearing to be more than usually dull. It is not expected that there will be much revival in business until the harvest is over. Scarcely any kind of produce has this week been brought into town, and we do not hear of any variation having taken place in the prices of grain, every description standing at our last quotations. Vegetables are rather scarce, and potatoes somewhat on the advance ; some Derwents have been sold at 5s. per cwt. Pelts are still in fair demand ; realising from Id. to 4d. each according to quality, dipt; with wool on 2s. and upwards. Tea is slightly on the decline by the chest, the best bringing about £5 to £5 5s. ; in the retail price there has as yet been no alteration. Sugar remains at about the same figure, though we hear there has been some slight decline upon this article in Sydney. In dairy produce the demand for butter still continues good, though there ...

To the Flockmasters and Settlers of Australia. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 2 November 1844

To the Flockmasters and Settlers of Australia. Gentlemen-The sufferings of numbers of the unemployed, and the promises of support that I have been favoured with in the Bathurst, Port Macquarie, Goulburn, and Hunter districts, decided me in making an offer to Temove 150 families from Sydney into the interior, if one half their expenses, or conveyance, were borne by the government ; whether this offer may be accepted and carried out, will (in my opinion) depend very much upon the success of a party which will proceed to Goulburn on Monday next. The government pay for their conveyance ; they are rationed by a generous public. It is my intention to remain in the Goulburn and Yass districts until I can provide comfort- ably for the families and others ; if sent there, no exertion will be spared by me to promote their interests, and procure them employment. Their agreements will be carefully drawn out and registered. From Saturday next no engagements will be made at my office, in Bent-str...

HIS EXCELLENCY THE GOVERNOR'S VISIT TO TEE HUNTER. SINGLETON. We understand his Excellency left Maitland Criy on Monday morning, and calling at Lochinvar reached Mr. Dawson's, at Black Creek, to breakfast ; after which he proceeded on to Mr. Kelman's, where he inspected the vinejard. He then crossed to Glendon, where he remained a short time, Helenus Scott, Esq., Warden of the district, being at Singleton, pre- paring for his Excellency's reception. On reaching the end of the Glendon estate he was met by the Warden, accompanied by a large number of the inhabitants, by whom his Excel- lency was escorted through Neotsfield to Rose- mount, the seat of John Larnach, Esq., where his Excellency by invitation partook of some refreshment, and the Warden introduced the attendant gentlemen to his Excellency.

To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. Gentlemen-It is generally understood by the deputation who waited on his Excellency at government house, on Saturday last, on behalf of the operatives and mechanics of Mait- land, that his Excellency stated that he could not get even the trifling repairs of the Wallis's Creek Bridge done by free labour; that although tenders for the said repairs had been called for by the clerk of the works at Maitland, none had been furnished. If this be a correct version of his Excellency's remarks, he must have been labouring under an erroneous impression, or have been unacquainted with the fact that two tenders, if not more, were sent in, one by the subscriber, and another by Mr. Keddie, neither of which were subsequently noticed by the proper authorities.-I am, gentlemen, yours respectfully,       ROSS COULTER.

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 — 2 November 1844

SYDNEY NEWS. Wholesale Prices of Colonial Farm and Dairy Produce in the Sydney Markets during the present week. Wheat and Flour.-Both these articles re- main without the slightest alteration in price. Wheat and flour continue to arrive in large quantities from V. D. Land, there being no sale for them there, nor does it pay to send them here at present prices. With duty and other charges, it returns little more than £7 per ton for best fine flour. Maize still continues to arrive in sufficient quantities for consumption here, and there is little required for shipment, unless in vessels for V. D. Land, in place of ballast. The present price is from Is. to Is. Id. per bushel of 60 lbs. weight. The millers and dealers insist now on having 60 lbs. weight per bushel, unless it arrives in bulk ; then it is measured. English Barley is worth from 2s. 6d. to 3s. per bushel, if very prime. Some from V. D. L. sold during the week at 3s. 3d., but it was a firstrate malting sample. Cape Barley is ...
