ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. BANK OF AUSTRALIA. To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 28 December 1844

ORXGXNAX. CORRESPONDENCE. BANK OF AUSTRALIA To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. Gentlemen-Some months ago my name was much before the public, in an attempt to attach an undue share of responsibility on me as a director of the Bank of Australia. I have long been desirous to make some remarks on the subject, but have till this day been re- strained by motives which no longer exist. I avail myself, therefore, of this opportunity to give publicity to a few observations, with a view of rescuing from some degree of prejudice a name which, I have abundant proofs of know- ing, has gained the respect and esteem of many in this distant land. None can more deeply deplore the concatena- tion of adverse and most unforseen circum- stances which led to the closing of the above institution ; and none can more sincerely lament the loss which it has caused to many besides myself. Much of this is attributable to the unexampled state of depression under which the colony now labours-a depression -wh...

COMMERCIAL AND MARKETS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 28 December 1844

COMMERCIAL AND MARKETS. The business of the town has been very brisk during the week, and Christmas has been kept with a much more cheerful spirit than on the two last occasions. The prospect of a good price and brisk demand for wool throughout the season, together with the large amount of money received by the woolgrowers as the balance for their wool exported last season, has told with great effect on all parties, and we have heard more universal expressions of con- fidence in our prospects during the last fort- night then in any similar period for the last two years. About 33 wool drays have arrived during the week. Sugar appears still to be rising, and several of the better sorts are said to be nearly out of the market. Rice is still rising, £25 per ton being quoted as the Sydney price, and the stock in Maitland being small. Rasins are very scarce, and table rasins are selling at Is. 2d. and Is. 3d. per lb. In hides a good business has been done, at rather an advance in price. A...

XiECXSIiATZVE COVNCXJ,. Saturday, December 21, 1844. Mr. Robinson presented a petition from the Town Council of Melbourne, objecting to the insertion of a clause in the Melbourne Incor- poration Act Amendment Bill enabling the Governor to appoint persons to the commission of the peace for the town who were not burgesses of the town. Read and received. The Council went into committee on the Bank of Australia Shares Bill, when a proviso rendering the unsold shares in the lottery the property of the "proprietors was adopted.

VARIETIES. The Order of Odd Fellows.-Some curious statistical details, illustrative of the present state of this extensive fraternity, were laid before the Grand Metropolitan Lodge, at its late anniversary meeting. It appears that on the 1st of April last, when the returns wero made up, there were in England and Wales, 3840 lodges, and 325,000 members, showing an increase of 450 lodges and 23,000 members over the previous year's return.

HUNTER RIVER DISTRICT NEWS. [FROM OUR CORRESPONDENTS.] WOLLOMBI. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 28 December 1844

HUNTER RIVER DISTRICT NEWS. [from our correspondents.] WOLLOMBI. The monotony of our township life has been agreeably enlivened by the holiday sports which came off yesterday. An unusually large assem- blage gathered early, and the Sir George Gipps and its immediate vicinity presented a scene of festivity, into which, in spite of adverse times, the people seemed to enter with spirit. Mine host of the Sir George Gipps had, with his usual liberality in cateri <br the public amusement, engaged the service " a musician and a jester, in his proper costuuu, who by his drollery drew forth many a hearty peal of laughter from his merry auditors. The manly games of cricket and foot-racing occupied the forenoon, the afternoon being devoted to horse-racing, when some excellent matches came off. The last match, between Mr. M'Dougal's George, that weekly runs in the mail, and a crack gelding of local fame, was a splendid affair, the distance being about one mile and a quarter, which wa...

LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. Thursday, December- 19; 1844. Our last week's report left Dr. Lang- speaking in support of the resolutions proposed by Mt. Wentworth. Mr. Bland also supported the resolutions, except the one which referred to the Judges. The Attorney General was totally opposed) to the resolutions.

THE MAITLAND MERCURY. SATURDAY, DECEMBER 28, 1844. THE GENERAL GRIEVANCE REPORT. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 28 December 1844

THE MAITLAND MEEOUKY. SATURDAY, DECEMBER 28, 1844. THE GENERAL GRIEVANCE REPORT. The report from the General Grievance Committee was brought under considera- tion in the Legislative Council on Thurs- day week, when the whole of the recom- mendations of the committee were adopted, after very little discussion. What could have induced this determined silence on the part of members who are not usually taciturn we cannot understand. The report involved several questions of the utmost importance and interest to the colony at large-questions which are likely at no distant day to divide the colonists into two distinct political parties -and yet the only speakers were Mr. Wentworth, the Colonial Secretary, Dr. Lang, Mr. Bland, the Attorney General, and Mr. Berry. What could have in- duced Messrs. Windeyer, Cowper, Walker, Robinson, Nicholson, and Therry to have avoided taking any part in the debate? Perhaps their silence arose from a prudent desire not to commit themselves too far on one or...

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. ON GROWING BARLEY.—No. 2. To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 28 December 1844

ORIGXN.&I. CORRESPONDENCE. ON GROWING BARLEY.-No. 2. To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. Gentlemen-In my former letter three points were advocated-good tillage, a little manure on overcropped land, and early sowing. No method, can be more slovenly than the general plan here. When the crop3 are off the field the ground lies unattended to for many months, with the trifling exception of a most abundant crop of weeds. Now these very weeds are worse than cultivated crops, because they extract that moisture from the soil which ought to be retained therein, and exhaust the alimentary parts of the land in a perfectly useless manner. One great object of Australian husbandry should ever be "the retention of moisture." Pulverised land will absorb and retain it, while indurated, ill-culti- vated soils either run the rain off as it distils from the sweet heavens, or else give it off rapidly by evaporation. Plough once, plough twice, but keepdown the weeds. "I passed by the field of t...

EXISTING DEPRESSION IN NEW SOUTH WALES, AND ITS CAUSES. (From M'Culloch's Dictionary of Commerce, edition of 1844.) [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 28 December 1844

EXISTING DEPRESSION IN NEW SOUTH WALES, AND ITS CAUSES. (From M'CulIoch's Dictionary of Commerce, edition of 1844.) Banking has been for a lengthened period one of the principal businesses carried on in Sydney. Four or five joint stock associations have been established in the town for carrying on bank business, exclusive of several joint stock bank- ing associations in London, which have branches in Sydney. The oldest of the native establish- ments, the Bank of New South Wales, was founded in 1816. The banks have frequently divided at the rate of 20 and 22 per cent, per annum of profit! But, as might have been anticipated, this success, by tempting too many competitors into the field, led to an extraordinary over-issue of paper, and has been a principal cause of the wide-spread embarrassment and distress in which the colony has latterly been involved. It has been estimated, apparently on good grounds, that the bank notes afloat iu Sydney, and bills discounted, in March, 1837, amoun...

MAITLAND CHRISTMAS RACES. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 28 December 1844

MAITLAND CHRISTMAS RACES. The Christmas Races came off on Thursday and yesterday with great eclat, the attendance being very good, and the racing on the whole very tolerable. A great number of booths were erected on the course, and though there was less music than usual they seemed to be well attended. Two or three light showers fell during the first day, but not enough to cause any discomfort; the weather was, however, very warm and close. There was a good attendance of foot and horse- men,but the number of ladies on horseback was very scanty for Maitland. The first race was for the Maitland Christmas Box of £10, for all horses, carrying weight-for- age; two mile heats; entrance £1. For which the following horses started : Mr. Ryan's Spring-heeled-Jack, 3 yrs.... 1 1 Mr. Reeves's Robin Hood, 5 yrs.2 2 Mr. Wade's Scratch, 4 yrs.dis.
