GOVERNMENT GAZETTE. NEWSPAPERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 16 November 1844

GOVERNMENT GAZETTE. NEWSPAPERS. in consequence of the frequent complaints of the loss and exchange of newspapers passing through this department, which is mainly attributable to the insecure manner in which they are inclosed in their covers, parties forward- ing newspapers through the post office are recommended to write the address on the printed part of the paper itself as well as on the envelope, which will, in a great measure,, remove the evil, and tend to secure their safe delivery. It is to be distinctly understood, however, that nothing more must be written on the paper than the address of the party for whom it is intended, as it will otherwise become subject to postage.

COMMERCIAL AND MARKETS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 16 November 1844

COMMERCIAL AND MARKETS. The business of the town has improA'ed slightly this week, the wool season having just begao to influence it. A few drays only have reached Maitland during the week, and we hear the owners will not part with the wool in Maitland under the highest Sydney quotation, though morally certain of realising less in Sydney than offered here, besides incurring the additional expense of forwarding it down. We know that in many instances last season wool owners were offered £d., f d. and Id. per lb. in Maitland above the price they afterwards succeeded in realising in Sydney ; and yet counting freight to Sydney, loss of time, and their expenses to and in Sydney, we believe it would pay them to take §d. or Id. per lb. less in Maitland than they would get in Sydney. A small quantity of settler-manufactured tobacco has been brought in, of good quality, and realised 6d. per lb. In wheat there is nothing doing, although, from the promising appearance of the harvest, holders a...

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 — 16 November 1844

SYETiEY HEWS. Wholesale Prices of Colonial Farm and Dairy Produce in the Sydney Markets during the present week. Wheat.-The importations of late from V. D. Land have overstocked the market, and caused a decline in price. There are very few pur- chasers at present who are not Avell supplied, and sales are difficult to effect. Flour continues without any alteration. Maize fluctuates from Is. to Is. Id. per bushel of 60 lbs., and is in moderate demand. Barley.-English will sell, if very good, at 2s. 6d. to 3s. per bushel. Cape Barley is in demand, and will realise Is. 6d. if good. Hay is rather on the decline in price, but good hay will sell. The market at present is overstocked with oaten hay from the Hunter districts, which is of so coarse a description that it will not sell. Bacon and Hams, of superior qualities, are saleable, and in demand. Butter.-The market continues abundantly supplied, and the quality must be very good to realise 9d. per lb. Cheese of the better kind is in dema...

BRITISH EXTRACTS; The Artesian Well at Grenelle.-The volume of water thrown up by the Artesian well at Grenelle has lately been again measured. It is found to flow with its original force, and in undiminished quantity, the produce being 2,000,000 litres per hour.

THE MAITLAND MERCURY[?] SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 16, 1844. HIS EXCELLENCY'S VISIT TO THE HUNTER. THE DREDGING MACHINE. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 16 November 1844

THE MAITLAND MERCURY, SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 16, 1844. HIS EXCELLENCY S VISIT TO THE HUNTER. THE DREDGING MACHINE. We regret that circumstances did not admit of his Excellency's remaining in the Hunter River district a few days longer, in order that he might hare made himself personally acquainted with two or three of the finest portions of it, and with the wants and wishes of the inhabitants of these localities. The Upper Paterson, the "William, and the Wollombi districts would each have well repaid the trouble of a journey, and would have added confirma- tion strong to the impression which appears to have been made on his Excellency's mind, that the Hunter district is always likely to be a land of plenty. We trust, however, that his Excellency saw sufficient during his brief stay among us to convince him of the importance and the resources of this district ; and that the knowledge he has thus acquired by personal observa- tion will induce him in future to lend a ready and willing ear ...

BRITISH EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 16 November 1844

BRITISH EXTRACTS. Leap Year and the Ladies.-The report of the registrar general bears witness, clear and un- deniable, that the ladies avail themselves of the priviliges which belongs to them in leap year. In all and every of the eight several divisions into which England and Wales are divided for registration purposes, there were more marriages in 1840 than in either 1839 or 1841 ! In our own district (the northern), 1,444 of every 100,000 ladies living in 1839 entered into the holy state of matrimony ; and in 1841 the proportion was 1,485 ; while in 1840 (leap year), 1,526 of every 100,000 ladies suc- ceeded in leading as many men into the married state! The fair sex, of course, will be no less busy in the present year.-Leeds Mercury.

SYDNEY NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 16 November 1844

SYDNEY NEWS. The Missionary Ship "John Williams." -On Tuesday, the 7th instant, the John Wil- liams was towed down Port Jackson by the steamer Cornubia, which was crowded by about two hundred ladies and gentlemen, assembled to bid the missionaries farewell. The scene was a very beautiful one, and is described as most affecting when the parting took place outside the heads, after a hymn had been sung, and a solemn benediction pronounced by the Rev. Dr. Ross. As the vessels slowly left each other, rounds of cheers were exchanged between them. The Cornubia, in returning, went up Middle Harbour, and remained there a couple of hours, while her passengers were enjoying themselves in pic nie parties on the shore. H. M. S. Vestal.-This ship arrived at Sydney on Wednesday, the Cth, having on board £10,000 in specie for the commissariat department. She carries 26 guns, of very heavy calibre, is built on Symonds's principle, and is described as a very quick sailing vessel. The Herald says she ...

HUNTER RIVER DISTRICT NEWS. [FROM OUR CORRESPONDENTS.] SINGLETON. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 16 November 1844

HTJOTTEK. BXVBR DISTRICT OTSVVS. [from our correspondents.] SINGLETON. On Sunday, the 20th ultimo., a youngwoman, named Mrs. Caneen, was unfortunately drowned in the creek between Rosemount and Murrimbah. At the inquest, which was held the following day, it was stated that she was subject to giddiness in the head; and, although frequently cautioned by her husband and friends, had very imprudently gone to the creek for a bucket of Avater, when it is supposed she was seized with a fit of giddiness, and had fallen in, where the creek was very broad and deep in consequence of the rain which had fallen a few days before. Her husband, who had been a short distance from home, upon his return wanted a drink of water, and finding neither his wife nor the bucket, the thought struck, him that she had gone to the creek, whither he Arent, and the first thing that met his eye was the bucket floating on the water. Some friends, who accompanied him, dived to discover the body, but their attempts pr...

ORIGINAL POETRY. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 16 November 1844

ORIGINAL POETRY. We may oft see a smile that beams dazzling with light, Yet is cold as 'tis dazzling, and cheerless as bright Like a sunbeam which rests on a mountain of snow, And chills while it brightens the earth with its glow, As cold as the surface it shincth upon Resplendent, but leaves not a trace when 'tis gone! Such, alas, are the smiles of the thoughtless and gay, That, unmeaning and lifeless, no feeling display ; They are worn on the lip, while the glance of the eye, So heartless, unfeeling, their efforts belle. But yet there's a smile 'neath whose soul-kindled ray The heart beats with pleasure that ne'er can decay So genial, "so warm, that we gaze with delight On features illumed willi a beauty so bright. As a fond bird returning, when all the day long Ithatn wasted on deserts the sweets of its song, New notes w11 awaken when ncaring his rest, For absence hath brightened the charms of his nest : So the soul turns wearied and loathing away From those looks that but beam t...

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 16 November 1844

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. Gentlemen-I beg to refer you to my evi- dence at the trial of Benjamin Stanley for the murder of the old man Campbell. Since Stanley has confessed (under circum- stances that vouch for its truth) that he took five sovereigns from his victim, my evidence is exposed to the charge of being either imaginary, or given 'with the intention of frustrating the course of justice against Stanley. That such is not the case, I trust what follows will prove. The forenoon after the trial Mr. John Saward called on me, and stated that on the day the murder was committed he paid me a sovereign, and that after he heard that Campbell had received sovereigns, and that search would there- fore be probably made for them, he, to prevent the possibility of anything being laid to his charge, went and told Mr. Warren, the magis- trate. I communicated this the same day by letter to his Honor Mr. Justice a'Beckett. As Mr. Saward came into the stor...
