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

ORIGINAL POETRY. There is a village, in a far distant isle, Embossom'd in a valley, bright with nature's smile: Dear is its remembrance, and lovelier by far Than the halls of the great, for in it, oh! there are Ties of old endearment that time ne'er can sever, And thoughts that will live in memory for ever, Connected with tbee, happy home of my birth, That are sweeter to me than the pleasures of earth. There's a lake in that village- oh! how did I love To gaze, when the sky was all cloudless above, On its clear, placid waters-and thought on the past, And the changes I found, since I look'd on it last : I loved it in childhood ; I've knelt at its brink 'Of its nectar to taste-how delightful that drink: And, though years have pass'd over, I ne'er can forget Those scenes of my boyhood-I still cherish them yet. 'There's a church in that village-and oft in the still .Of a sweet sabbath eve have I stood on the hill That riscB above it, to list to the sound -Of the anthem of praise, while ...

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 — 14 December 1844

SYDNEY NEWS. Wholesale Prices of Colonial Farm and Dairy Produce in the Sydney Markets during the present week. Wheat.-The wheat market is yet the same, the effect of the new crop being yet hardly decided. Good wheat, clean, will now obtain about 3s. per bushel. Flour.-There is no change to report in this market. Maize will obtain about Is. for the best samples. English Barley is worth 2s. to 2s. Gd. per bushel. Cape Barley will sell at about the same price as maize. Hay continues much the same in price as last week, and good compressed Oaten is scarce. Bacon and Hams sell well, and are rather more in demand. Butter.-Large quantities continue to arrive daily, causing a glut in the market ; the price for best qualities may be quoted at 6d. Cheese is rather scarce, particularly of the better kind, which will realise a trifling advance. Eggs are scarce, and, if equally mixed with ducks', realise better prices and sell much quicker. Pigs sell readily, and prices remain steady. Potatoes....

COMMERCIAL AND MARKETS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 14 December 1844

COMMERCIAL AND MARKETS. Business has been rather dull in Maitland this week, although there have been a good number of wool drays down ; we have observed 30 drays passing. Rice has risen slightly, and a further rise is expected, the stock in the colony being low. Raisins are still at the same figure, 10d., in Maitland, but it is reported they are so scarce in Sydney that Is. is demanded there wholesale. Currants are plentiful in Maitland, and their price is lower. Very bad news has reached Maitland this week regarding the tobacco crop. It is said a hot wind succeeding a cold day has cut off the greater part in all quarters. If this is confirmed there will probably be a rise in tobacco shortly. A quantity of wheat, of first-rate quality, has been purchased at 2s. 9d. per bushel, and it is reported one grower has been offered 3s. for the whole of his crop. English barley has been offered at Is. 9d. by several parties, but we did not hear whether any was purchased. This stagnation arri...

HUNTER RIVER DISTRICT NEWS. [FROM OUR CORRESPONDENTS.] MURRURUNDI. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 14 December 1844

HTTUTER RIVER DISTRICT NEWS. [from our correspondents.] MURRURUNDI. Tremendous Hail Storm.-On Tuesday, the 26th November, the township was subjected to the most tremendous hail-storm for a quarter of an hour we have ever experienced. During that time it was impossible for any one to stir out without chancing being seriously injured, and the cattle and horses which could not immediately get under shelter were running about like mad things hither and thither. I was at the time about three miles beyond the township, and not a hail-stone fell around me, but when I got back I was perfectly astonished at the destruction wrought in the fields in so short a time. The wheat, tobacco, and maize all round was beaten to the ground, and several persons who that morning had commenced reaping with a beautiful crop in the field had lost all when the storm was over. Even the wheat which was not quite ready for the sickle was so beaten down that those who expected to have thirty bushels to the acre w...

ENGLISH NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 14 December 1844

ENGXISH NEWS. By the Hamlet, arrived at Sydney on Tuesday last, English news to the 21st August has been received. The Queen and the infant Prince were well. The Queen had recovered very rapidly from her confinement. The prospect of a war between England and France has received strength since the last advices, in consequence of the bombardment of Tangier, a seaport town of Morocco, by the French under the Prince de Joinville, which was reported as likely to be followed up by bom- bardment of other seaports of Morocco. The bombardment seems to have been almost a laughable affair, as regards the damage done in comparison to the force employed by the French ; the batteries were very little damaged, only one gun was dismounted, and seven or eight persons were killed of the garrison. The Moors are said to have behaved well, though the batteries were nearly silent the latter part of the action, which lasted six hours. The French did not attempt to land, but left the port after the bombard...

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 14 December 1844

originai. correspondence. To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. Gentlemen-A case occurred at the bench here to-day, which, for the general information of all school-boys in the colony, is I think deserving of notice. The week previous a pig, the property of a poor man in the township, walked through an open gate into the yard adjoining a gentleman's house, when some of his pupils, with one of his sons, commenced summary proceedings on the intruder, by first shutting the gate, and then beating it io death, after which it was put away in a drain. The owner, feeling that an act of injustice was done him, swore an information against one of the delinquents (the gentleman's son), and obtained a summons this day week against him for " feloniously assisting in killing his pig." The case came on to-day, not before the magistrates who issued the summons, but before five others, who, without hearing the case, dismissed the matter, on the grounds of its being a juvenile freak. So that the sc...

COLONIAL INTELLIGENCE. PORT PHILLIP. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 14 December 1844

COX.ONXa.Xi INTELLIGENCE. PORT PHILLIP. Lord Stanley's Views on the Price of Land, Emigration, the Elective Franchise, and Separation.-The following letter has been addressed to the editor of the Port Phillip Gazette, by Mr. Niel Black. " Melbourne, 23rd Nov. 1843.-Sir-Under the head of the leading article of 'this morning a paragraph appears in your paper in .which my name is mentioned, and which cannot fail to make a wrong impression on the minds of your readers, though I do not suppose this was intentional on your part. When I had the honor of an inter- view with the Right Honorable tbe"Secretary for the Colonies, his -Lordship expressed himself unwilling to reduce the price of land on various grounds, but chiefly on account of the injury he apprehended such a measure would inflict on the interest of those who had already purchased land under security of Act of Parliament, fixing its permament price at 20s. per acre. On the subject of emigration his Lordship said that the home go...

SYDNEY NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 14 December 1844

SYDNEY NEWS. .Colonial Exports.-The Herald of Saturday last publishes a list of the cargoes already on board of twelve vessels now loading at "Sydney for England, ten being destined for London and two for Liverpool. It is gratifying to observe how much more varied is the list of colonial exports than formerly, and how respectable a proportion of the whole is made by tallow, hides, and horns. Formerly wool and oil were the only two items of any importance in loading for England, and the consequence was often an impossibility of procuring cargoes for ships between the wool seasons, unless when ?accidentally three or four whalers would come in with oiL "This'last season the departure of ships for England has met'-with no interruption of any length, -and a more gratifying proof could not be adduced of the increasing variety and magnitude of our exports, in addition to our principal staples of wool and oil. On board these twelve vessels, neither of them being then full, were already ship...

Mr. Windeyer moved, pursuant to notice, that the house be counted, which being done, four members were found to be absent, but as they came in shortly after and apologised for their absence, they werenot fined, on the ground of the call of the house not having stood first among the orders of the day. Major Wentworth presented two petitions in favor of the Bank of Australia Lottery Bill, one from Maitland, and the other from Newcastle. Mr. Lord presented a petition to the same effect from Bathurst. Mr. Bradley presented a similar petiton from .Goulburn. Mr. Windeyer also presented two similar petitions, one from Paterson, and the other from Raymond Terrace. Mr. Foster presented a petition from New- castle, praying that the Council would vote a sum of £100 to repair the bridges between New- castle and Maitland.

THE MAITLAND MERCURY. SATURDAY, DECEMBER 14, 1844. MAITLAND BENEVOLENT ASYLUM. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 14 December 1844

THE MAITLAND MERCURY. SATURDAY, DECEMBER 14, 1844. MAITLAND BENEVOLENT ASYLUM. The Maitland Benevolent Asylum has at length been placed on the same footing as the hospitals at Goulburn, Bathurst, and Windsor, a sum of ;£200 having been last week voted by the Legislative Council for 1845 in aid of the asylum, to meet an equal amount of private subscrip- tions, which are to be in addition to those which may be met by sums derived from fines on drunkards, or any other sources of public income. In addition to this, the Council has also voted a sum of .£1000 towards the erection of a public hospital at Maitland, on condition that an equal sum at least be raised by private subscriptions. A similar amount has been voted towards the erec- tion of a hospital at Melbourne, on the same conditions. A principle is thus laid down upon which it is proposed in future to act in extending aid towards the erection of local hospitals throughout the country ; and we have little doubt that as the circums...

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 14 December 1844

ORIGINAS. CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. Gentlemen-" Let Australia advance" is the every day phrase, but small progress is effected. Agriculture slumbers. The apathy on this subject, even among men of intelligence and influence, is' to be regretted and lamented. By tardy steps are the resources of this colony rising to view, like a wounded snake dragging ita slow form along. Tobacco is at present the crack object of cul- tivation, and it is to be hoped will rank high a few years hence in the scale of Australian pro- ductions. More skill seems to be applied towards the cultivation of this plant than has been exhibited in the management of wheat, barley, or oats, potatoes or turnips, which extra care may be accounted for by the fact that it is deemed a luxury, and all the boys, men, and not a few women, are most determined smoker* and puffers, from the age of six to the end of the chapter. However startling the assertion, I venture to declare my conviction tha...
