EXECUTION OF STANLEY. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 9 November 1844

EXECUTION OF STANLEY. On Thursday last, the 7th instant, the extreme penalty of the law was carried into effect at Newcastle upon Benjamin Stanley, convicted at the late Maitland Circuit Court of the wilful murder of Robert Campbell, at the William River, on the 30th May last. The wretched man, our readers will recollect, after having been ordered for execution on the 24th of last month, had been respited, in consequence of a confession he had made to the Rev. C. Pleydell N. Wilton, Chaplain of the jail, in which he had implicated Millington Farrah in the murder of Campbell. An investigation into his asser- tions was accordingly made by E. D. Day, Esq., at Maitland, which terminated in the discharge of Farrah upon bail. Upon the occasion of his Excellency's late visit to Newcastle, Stanley presented, through the medium of the Rev. C. Pleydell N. Wilton, a petition to the Governor for mercy. But there appearing to the Executive nothing by which the guilt of Stanley could be called in...

Lord de Grey had left Ireland, and Lord' Heytesbury would proceed to Dublin Castle via Liverpool on the 26th July. The writ of error in the case of O'connell and his fellow prisoners had occupied the House of | Lords for six days, the arguments terminating on the 10th July, on which day the Lord Chancellor handed to Lord Chief Justice Tindal a series of 11 questions on points on which the opinions of the Judges were requested to enable the House to give judgment. Lord Chief Justice Tindal having requested time to be allowed to consider the questions, permission was granted, and up to the date of the Parrock Hall's leaving their answers bad not been given. A state prosecution was said to be about to be commenced against the proprietor of the Limerick Reporter, for an article in that paper urging the people to procure arms and register them, to be prepared fo...

HUNTER RIVER DISTRICT NEWS. [FROM OUR CORRESPONDENTS.] NEWCASTLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 9 November 1844

BUNTER RIVER DISTRICT HEWS. [from our correspondents.] NEWCASTLE. Benjamin Stanley.-Preparations are being made for the execution of this unfortunate man, which is to take place to-morrow morning, at ten o'clock. I understand he has this morning addressed and sent a letter to the prisoners in the gaol-yard, warning them to avoid treading in his steps, and assuring them that drink had brought him to thieving, and then to the death he was about to suffer ; stating} however, that he was innocent of the murder, though accessory to the robbery. Horse Races.-On Friday last two matches came off on the race-course here ; one between Mr. Simpson's horse Chance and Mr. Moör house's mare, for £10 a side: and the other between Mr. Page's horse Lincoln and Mr. Ledgerwood's mare Emily, for £5 a side. The first race between Chance and the mare came off at twelve o'clock; two heats were run of one mile each, both of which were won easily by Chance. It was quite evident the mare had not been well tr...

COMMERCIAL AND MARKETS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 9 November 1844

COMMERCIAL AND MARKETS. There has been a very slight improvement in business this week, but money continues very scarce. As the wool drays are arriving now in good numbers everj day, however, another week or two will show a great alteration, we trust. There is little variation in prices ; but sugar and tea have both fallen a trifle by the box and chest. Tallow is scarce in the neighbourhood, and in demand, but the price is unaltered. There has been some settler-manufactured tobacco brought in this week, and offered at 6d. per lb., but we could not hear that any was bought; the supply of this kind of tobacco much exceeds the demand. Leaf tobacco is in demand, but there is very little to be had. Wheat has improved a little. Two or three loads of good quality passed through to Morpeth during the week, and obtained 3s. 3d. cash. Another load of inferior quality brought only 2s. 6d. It sells readily. Maize has also improved somewhat, 400 or 500 bushels having brought lid. cash, and anoth...

S-îTIHtfEY NEWS. Wholesale Prices of Colonial Farm and Dairy Produce in the Sydney Markets during the present week. Wheat and Flour are about the same figure as in my last report; the imports from V. D. Land keeping the price down. Maize is from Is. to Is. Id. per bushel, and in moderate demand. Barley.-English is about 2s. 6d. to 3s., but it must be good.

HIS EXCELLENCY THE GOVERNOR'S VISIT TO THE HUNTER RETURN TO MAITLAND, AND VISIT TO PATERSON. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 9 November 1844

HIS EXCEÜENCY THE GOVERNOR'S VISIT TO THE HUNTER RETURN TO MAITLAND, AND VISIT TO PATERSON. On Wednesday afternoon, about five o'clock, his Excellency Sir George Gipps drove into Maitland, on his return from visiting the Upper Hunter, having, we believe, returned by way of Cockfighter's Creek and Glendon. As it was not generally known that he might be expected that afternoon, only a few gentlemen went out two or three miles on the road to meet him. Ou Thursday Sir George remained quietly at government cottage all day, the day's rest being very grateful after the fatigue of the constant travelling, and his indisposition not having left him. Yesterday morning Sir George and Lady Gipps left government cottage a little after six, on a visit to the Paterson, accompanied by Mr. Merewether, Captain Day, and Mr. Day. He proceeded by the Paterson road, and through the beautiful estate of Tocal. The party reached Paterson about nine, and breakfasted at the Paterson Hotel, an excellent breakfa...

THE MAITLAND MERCURY. SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 9, 1844. BILL TO AMEND THE SQUATTING ACT. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 9 November 1844

THE MAITLAND MEKCÜRY. SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 9, 1844. BILL TO AÍIEXD THE SQUATTING ACT. The advocates for the abolition of the license fees lay great stress upon the cir- cumstance that Sir Richard Bourke, when he sanctioned the occupation of the crown lands beyond the boundaries in 1836, did not contemplate raising more revenue from these lands than was sufficient to carry into force the provisions of the Squatting Act. But, while admitting this to be the true statement of the case, it must also be taken into account that at that period the general and territorial revenue were both more than ample to meet all the claims upon them ; that, with respect to the territorial revenue, the chief difficulty was to avoid its accumulating to an incon- venient extent. This circumstance will sufficiently account for Sir Richard's in- difference to making the occupation of the crown lands beyond the boundaries a source of revenue. The changes, however, which have taken place in the colony within a f...

ETCGX.XSH NEWS. By the packet barque Dublin, arrived at Sydney on Friday last, news has been received up to the 2nd July. Mr. Villiers's motion for the repeal of the corn laws, after an animated discussion, was rejected by a majority of 204. Lord Heytesbury has been appointed Lord Lieutenant of Ireland. A discovery had been made in the post office department which had excited universal indig- nation throughout Great Britain. Letters from foreign parts, addressed to persons residing in England, had been opened in the post office by order of the Secretary of State, at the request of foreign governments. The discovery was made in consequence of the letters of a Mr. Mazzini, a native of Sardinia, residing in London, having been opened at the request of the Sardinian Envoy, Mr. Mazzini having been obliged to leave Italy on suspicion of being concerned in some political disturbances in the Papal States.

ORIGINAL POETRY. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 9 November 1844

ORIGINAL POETRY. How sweet are those visions of brilliancy stealing, In youth's cloudless morning, like light o'er the soul, When the magic of friendship, affection, and feeling, The spirit enchains with their gentle control. "When the fond heart's first love to this dull earth hath given An ideal brightness it seldom can know ; And in fancy with beings too pure, save for heaven, We people this grief-shadowed desert below. Should affliction oppress us, from hope we may borrow, To lighten the bosom, a ray of delight ; And the eye may be beaming with pleasure tomorrow That's moisten'd end dim with the tear of to-night! But, ohl when that day dream of beauty and gladness, Which lightened tile heart, like a phantom hath past, When oppressed with despair, disappointment, and sadness, We waken to languish in sorrow atlast! Then, then, like a garden despoil'd of its flowers, Is the heart a lone ruin!-a desolate thing! Where, unheeded, unplucked, in its loveliest bowers, The dark weeds of c...
