BRITISH EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 23 November 1844

BRITISH EXTRACTS. Railway Speed.-In our last week's impres- sion we gave a circumstantial account of the opening of the Darlington and Newcastle Rail- way, which completes the line of communication between the latter town and London. The special train which conveyed a party of directors and friends from London to Newcastle on that occasion, accomplished the journey, 303 miles, in the short space of nine hours and thirty-two minutes, being an average of about thirty-two miles an hour, including stoppages ; but, as this naked statement would supply a very inadequate idea of the actual rate of progress on some parts of the line, we now give a tabular view of the performance. The train left the Euston-square station at three minutes past five in the morning, and reached Newcastle at thirty-five minutes past two in the afternoon. The following are the distances on the respective portions of line, the time consumed in passing over each, and the rate per hour run : London to Rugby (Birming...

BASIN OF THE HUNTER RIVER. (From the Penny Cyclopædia.) [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 23 November 1844

BASIN OF THE HUNTER RIVER. (From tile Penny Cyclopaedia.) This basin is the largest which has up to this period been discovered in the countries of Australia bordering on the Pacific. It extends from the Connecting Ridge, a distance of about 140 miles in a straight line. Its average width certainly does not fall short of 60 miles. This gives an area of 8400 square miles, or an extent of country equal to Wales with the addi- tion of Monmouthshire. This large tract seems to contain a greater proportion of available land than any other portion of New South Wales of equal extent, some portions of Aus- tralia Felix perhaps excepted. The whole basin may be divided into two portions. The eastern or lower basin, or that which lies east of 150° 40' E. long., is drained by the Hunter River and several large affluents; and the western or higher basin, west of 150° 40* E.long., by the Goulburn, a tributary of the Hunter, and its numerous feeders. The lower basin of the river consists of two inc...

THE MAITLAND MERCURY. SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 23, 1844. THE AUCTIONEERS BILL. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 23 November 1844

THE MAITLAND MEECUEY. SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 23, 1844. THE AUCTIONEERS BILL. The objects of the bill so recently introduced into the Legislative Council by TMr. Cowper, "to regulate fhe licensing of auctioneers, and the collection of duties on properties sold by auction," are-to raise the license fee from £2 to £60 ; to vary the amount of duty on différent kinds of property sold by auction; to exempt certain produce and goods from auction duty; and to prohibit sales by auction after seven o'clock in the evening. The bill enacts that no person shall act as an auctioneer until he shall have taken out^a license, and paid a fee of «£-50 upon it. Any person desirous of continuing the business of an auctioneer must renew his license ten days before his first license expires ; a fee of £25 is chargeable upon the renewed license. Under the present act the fee for a license is £2. The effect of the proposed alteration will of course be to restrict the auctioneering trade to those persons who are...

BRITISH EXTRACTS. Extension of Cotton Manufactories in the United States.-We extract the following from the trade circular of Messrs. A. Gordon, Wylie, and Co., of New Orleans, dated 22nd May, and received by the last steamer :-" We annex an article on the Cotton Manufacturers of the United States, which will be found to be of interest. 'The cotton manufacturers of the United States are extending themselves in every direction. The same spirit of enterprise that completed the work at Lowell some twenty years ago has found its way to the south and the we3t. In the vicinity of St. Louis there is a manufac- tory in process of erection, also one in the neigh- bourhood of TaltahaSs°, Florida.

OTTWTER RIVER DISTRICT NSWS. [from our correspondents.] NEWCASTLE. No cases possessing any feature of importance have been tried at the police office during the last fortnight. Petty robberies are still being committed in the town, whenever " a chance" presents itself. Court House.-This building is undergoing some important repairs and alterations, under the superintendence of Mr. S. Kemp. Muster of Ticket of Leave Holders.-By a netice which appears in another part of this day's Mercury, it will be perceived that a general muster of ticket of leave holders will be held on Wednesday, the 4th proximo, by Mr. Becke, the Clerk of the Bench, at the police office. It is supposed that there is a great number of men holding the indulgence of tickets of leave who are without employment, and have not registered themselves. This neglect causes great inconvenience to the Chief Constable, who in cases of emergency is compelled to apply for the services of ticket of leave holders to be sworn in a...

COMMERCIAL AND MARKETS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 23 November 1844

COMMERCIAL AND MARKETS. Business bas been pretty brisk in Maitland during the wCPk» We observed twenty nine wool ùrays pass through from Friday morning, the loth, to Thursday evening, the 21st, and others may have passed unobserved. The wool season has already produced a marked change in the appearance of the shops and stores, which have lately looked rather sleepy, A large quantity of bark has been brought into Maitland the last week or two, mostly from the Wollombi. It has been bought almost entirely for consumption in the tanneries here, and the price has varied, we believe, from 30s. per ton, cash, to 50s. half cash, half property. We are informed on good authority that the value of leather weekly manufactured in Mait- land averages £120 or £130, nearly the whole of which is consumed in the district, and the demand on the whole is very steady. The1 total quantity of bark brought into town, and pur- chased, in the last six or seven weeks, is esti- mated at 200 tons. Hides have ri...

SYDNEY NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 23 November 1844

STDXTZnr NEWS. The Mayoralty.-Mr. Smidmore's mistake in voting for Mr. Allen instead of Mr. Mac- dermott has created quite a stir in Sydney. On Thursday, the 14th instant, a meeting of the electors of Brisbane Ward was held to take his conduct into consideration, but Mr. S. not being present, the meeting was adjourned to Tuesday, the 19th, to allow him to appear and free him- self from the charge of either dishonesty or stupidity. Mr. Smidmore will have a pleasant time of it for the next month. Australian Serpents.-The Register of Saturday contains a short article on Australian serpents, confessedly incomplete, and published with a view to attract attention to the subject.

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 — 23 November 1844

SYDNEY HEWS. Wholesale Prices of Colonial Farm and Dairy Produce in the Sydney Markets during the present week. Wheat continues very dull of sale, the large arrivals of V. D. Land having glutted the market. Flour still remains at the same prices as for the last few weeks. Maize has arrived in such quantities during the week that the market is completely glutted ; Is. per bushel is the most that has been realised for very best samples, and many inferior ones have been sold at 9d. English Barley.-A few lots have been sent to market this week, which have been sold at 2s. 9d. per bushel ; but the brewers have at present declined making purchases, not consider- ing it sufficiently dry. Cape Barley still realises Is. Od., and sells' freely, provided it be good. Hay.-I have no alteration to report. Bacon and Hams sell well, but they must be of good quality. Butter is abundant, and the qualily must be very good to realise late prices. Cheese continues in demand. Eggs may be quoted at 4d. pe...

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 23 November 1844

ORIGINA!. CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. Gentlemen-In an article on exports which appeared in your paper a short time back you ask for information upon the best method of curing hides for shipment, and no answer having as yet been given, I am induced to furnish such information as I possess upon the subject. Hitherto there has been so little attention paid to this article as an export that all sorts of rub- bish have been sent to market, and, unfortu- nately for the character of the colony, much of it has been shipped. The faults have been various, but the greatest has been in bush hides, which have been partly salted and partly dried in many instances, and some altogether dried, but in so rough and uneven a manner that the small dealer, who is generally the purchaser, to get the hard wrinkles out of them, steeps them, in water, then presses them flat, and goes through a process of salting them, and ties them up neatly, and in this way they are sent to marke...

SELECT POETRY. SONG OF THE RED INDIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 23 November 1844

SELECT POETRY. SONG OF THE RED INDIAN. Oh! why does the white man hang on my path, Like the hound on the tiger's track? Does the flush of my dark cheek waken hi» wrath? Does he covet the bow at my bnck X He has rivers and seas, where the billows and breez» Bear riches for him alone ;- n And the sons of the wood never plunge in the flood. Thal the white man calls his own. Then why should he covet the streams where noa» But the red-skin dare to swim ? Oh! why should he wrong the hunter, on» Who never did harm to him ? The father aborc thought flt to give To the white man corn and wine; There are golden fields where he may Uve, But the forest wilds are mine. The eagle has its place of rest, The wild horse where to dwell, And tlie spirit who gave the bird its nest Made me a home as well. . '? ' Then back, go back from the red-skin's track, For the hunter's eye grows dim, To And that the white man wrongs the one Who never did harm to him. Eliza Cook.

Boyd, the member for Melbourne, has published an address to his constituents, in which he informs them that he is about to proceed to China for the purpose of endeavouring to introduce Australian wool to the notice of the Chinese, in the hope that a large demand would spring up. in China if the quality of Australian wool was once generally known there. After returning from China Mr. Boyd intends proceeding on a visit to England, where he suggests he would probably be able, if authorised by the Port Phillippians, to act as their agent while there, to render them good service towards enforcing their claim for separa- tion on the home government. Mr. Boyd leaves it to his constituents io decide whether, under these circumstances, they would wish him to resign his seat, either before his voyage to China, or on his return from thence.

A charge of assault against Thomas Collins, in which the sufferer, an elderly man, named John Murphy, was dreadfully punished, has been before the police court during the last three weeks. By Murphy's deposition and evidence it appeared he had come into Mait- land from Black Creek on the 4th November, on horseback, to obtain some money to release cattle from Black CreeTc pound, and on his road back had just got past Mr. Beattie's lodge when a man came up and laid hold of his rein ; as the man appeared drunk Murphy said nothing for a little while, till a cart loaded with green stuff, which was passing, had gone on, but presently asked him to let go, when the man said he would search him first to see what he had about him. Murphy said he had only a few shillings about him, and would not stand being searched. As he said the words another man carne up and struck him on the head, while the first man seized his collar and brought him to the ground, Murphy falling on his he...
