COMMERCIAL AND MARKETS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 7 December 1844

COMMERCIAL AND MARKETS. The business of the town has been pretty fair this week, notwithstanding there have been fewer wool-drays down, probably detained a little by the late rains. We have observed 17 wool-drays pass. The only change in the stores of note is a rise in the price of rice, con- sequent on the stock in Sydney having got very low; unless fresh cargoes arrive soon, there will probably be a very great increase in price. A considerable quantify of tallow has been brought down, of which a small lot was bought in Maitland at £25 per ton. Hides are in steady demand, both green and salted; of the latter a rather large lot was delivered in Maitland, at 9s. each, to a pur- chaser from Sydney. A rise in leather may be looked for shortly, as the présent price of hides is likely to last, and at those prices they will hardly pay to manufacture into leather without a corresponding rise. Bark has again arrived in considerable quantity, and has sold at about the same rates. A small qua...

PORT PHILLIP. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 7 December 1844

»ORT FHIUI?. Great excitement and dissatisfaction prevail at Port Phillip in consequence of the Royal George having brought out, among her steerage pas- sengers, twenty-one convicts from the peniten- tiaries of England, holding apparently condi- tional pardons provided they remain five years absent from England, as they appear to be in no way under the surveillance or control of the police, but to be as free and unshackled in their movements as Immigrants. As the Port Phil lippians have hitherto prided themselves on their having no assigned servants or prisoners in the province, this is looked upon as a gross attempt on the part of the home government to encroach on their privileges. The press is all but unani- mous against the measure« and notice has been given in the Town Council of a motion of pro- test against it. No denial of the fact has been made, but it appears very extraordinary that menin sucha situation should have been sent out as free agents, and without any subjection ...

HUNTER RIVER DISTRICT NEWS. [FROM OUR CORRESPONDENTS.] DUNGOG. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 7 December 1844

HUNTER RIVER DISTRICT STOWS. [from our correspondents.] DUNGOG. During the first three days of this week we had plentiful rain, without falling in such torrents as to hurt the wheat. This will give tresh spirit to the graziers, as previously the feed for cattle had been very poor. Our harvest will be all in together, the rain having fallen ßo late, and next week will be a busy one indeed. If twenty or thirty good reapers would make their appearance in our neighbourhood I have no doubt they would meet with ready employment, with remunerating wages. Every thing in the shape of money transactions is very dull. November 28. SINGLETON. Several drays heavily loaded with wool lia ve been, for some.time, passing through this town ; and, as the clipping season is now in full operation, many more may bo expected by the same route, affording a slight relief to our usually monotonous state. The.great improve- ment in the price of wool, Australia's staple commodity, is very gratifying; and shoul...

THE JURY LIST. To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 7 December 1844

THE JURY LIST. To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. Gentlemen-Many individuals on the Jury List grumble at being so frequently called upon to do their duty as jurors (erroneously imagining that I have something to do with the panel beyond the simple but laborious duty of calling them together), alleging that several competent parties in their respective neighbourhoods, fit to sit as jurors, are from time to time omitted. As I am aware that the utmost caution and anxiety has been exercised in revising the panel by the Police Magistrate, I would suggest that those gentlemen who feel themselves aggrieved on the matter should, ere the list for 1845 be forwarded to headquarters, send in the name3 of such new jurors to the proper quarter (paying nostace) as thev consider fully qualified to perform the duties of the office. -I am. Gen tlemen, yours obediently, JOHN KINGSMILL, Summoning Officer.

Your obedient servant, A COUNTRY SUBSCRIBER. [The legality of the poundkeepcr's conduct would, we imagine, turn upon the particular circumstances under which he impounded the cattle. -Eds. M. M.]

THE MAITLAND MERCURY. SATURDAY, DECEMBER 7, 1844. THE DREDGING MACHINE. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 7 December 1844

THE MAITLAND MEECUEY. SATURDAY, DECEMBER 7, 1844. THE DREDGING MACHINE. The people of the district, after a short but sharp struggle, have succeeded in inducing his Excellency to remove the obstructions to the navigation of the Hunter. It will be seen, by the report of the Council proceedings in our fourth page, that his Excellency has placed upon the Estimates for 1845 a sum of £1000 for the employment of the dredging machine on the river Hunter, and a further sum of £600 for the purchase of additional punts for the same, not ex- ceeding four in number; and from our correspondent's report of last Thursday's Council proceedings, it will be seen that these sums have been voted by the Council. The success of this movement is mainly attributable to the public spirit of those who subscribed the necessary funds for obtaining a survey of the river. Unless .this essential step had been taken, his Excellency was entrenched behind a breastwork of professional opinion from which nothing could...

REGULATIONS FOR THE DISPOSAL OF LANDS IN BRITISH NORTH AMERICA. (From M'Culloch's Dictionary of Commerce, edition of 1844.) CANADA. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 7 December 1844

REGULATIONS FOR THE DISPOSAL OF LANDS IN BRITISH NORTH AMERICA. (From M'Culloch's Dictionary of Commerce, edition of 1844.} CANADA. By an act of the local legislature, passed in September, 1841, the waste lands of the crown are to be sold at a price to be fixed from time to time by the Governor in Council.

LITERARY NOTICE. The Acts of Council and Parliament for the colony of New South Wales, with Notes and an Index. By Thomas Callaghan, Esq., Barrister-at-law. Vol. I. Sydney : W. Baker, 1844. This work will contain an alphabetical arrange- ment, according to subject, of all the Acts of ?Council and Parliament passed for this colony, from its first foundation to the close of the session of 1844, and is to be completed in two volumes. It is dedicated to J. H. Plunkett, Esq., H. M. Attorney General. We are not qualified to pronounce an opinion upon the professional value of Mr. Callaghan's work ; but it appears to us to be one which has long been required, and which, from the clear and admirable plan of arrangement which has been adopted, is calculated to be eminently useful to the non-professional part of the community. The work is as complete as could be desired, and bears evidence of great labour and attention. The comparatively reasonable price at which it is published (two guineas a...

SYDNEY NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 7 December 1844

SYDNEY NEWS. The new Penal Colony.-On Thursday last the Colonial Secretary stated in Council, in answer to a question from Dr. Nicholson, that despatches had been received from the Home Government relative to the establishment of a new penal colony to the northward, but declined entering into particulars, as the site had not yet been fixed on, nor the nature of the regula- tions under which the colony was to be formed. From what he said it might be gathered, how- ever, that at present the intention was to make it strictly a penal settlement, and confined to the reception of prisoners who had served out their probation in the penitentiaries of England ; the necessity for the new penal settlement having arisen from the fact that the government of Van Diemen's Land found it impossible to carry out in that colony the arrangements and regulations for the management of this class of prisoners. An able article was published in the Herald of Saturday relative to the most eligible locality f...

ENGLISH NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 7 December 1844

ENGIiISH NEWS. English news to the 12th August has been received, via Hobart Town. The Queen's accouchment took place on the 6th August, when she was safely delivered of a Prince. Up to the latest advices her Majesty and the young Prince were doing well. Trade was good; wool firm, and with an upward tendency. Warm discussions had taken place in both houses of Parliament relative to the treatment of the Rev. Mr. Pritchard by the French at Tahiti, both Sir Robert Peel and Lord Aberdeen speaking of it as a gross and unparalleled out- rage, for which the British nation was bound to demand satisfaction. It was confidently expected that the French government would afford the fullest satisfaction for the insult, from their prompt apologies when the former proceedings of the French at Tahiti were complained of; but ; it was suggested that the French government would probably endeavour to delay acting on the subject until the arrival of news from Tahiti relative to it. As the Collingwood, of...
