CHINA. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 1 April 1843

CHINA. The artificers of Canton have struck work and refused to rebuild the British consular hall; though they have professed their willingness to rebuild the houses of the merchants. The ar- tificers are said to be influenced by the following patriots : Ye, a man of Tungwan district, said to be 107 years old, and who has been made a member of the Hanlin college ; Ho, a native of the province of Keangse, waiting for the appoint- ment of a Chechow, and Wang, a native of Sin- gan district, and a Keujin graduate. We have been informed that the late emute had been foreseen by the compradors, hong pursers, &c., and foretold to most of the English residents at Canton a week, at least, before it occurred. Many of the mob wore a white sash, probably a distinctive mark of the Sanhohwuy, or triad society. It was also said by the Chinese in Canton that the destruction of the British factory was the avowed object of vengeance for the excesses committed by some of the camp followers in M...

To the Independent Electors of the Northumberland Boroughs. GENTLEMEN-It having been intimated to me that my former address contains   no exposition of my views on the leading questions at present agitating the public mind, and that such an exposition is looked for by the electors of the Northumberland boroughs, I beg to state that after what fell from me at the public meeting of my friends and supporters at Maitland, I considered it scarcely necessary to allude to them in a printed address ; at the call, however, of my friends, and the more fully to satisfy the electors, I now come forward. In a colony like this, where no state religion exists, it shall always be my study to promote religion to the fullest extent ; and, in appor- tioning funds for its support, I shall use my utmost exertions, if honoured by you with a seat in the Legislative Council, to grant every sect a proportionate amount, without regard to the religious opinions they profess, so long as they are c...

THE MAITLAND MERCURY. SATURDAY, APRIL 1, 1843. THE CULTIVATION OF THE VINE. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 1 April 1843

THE MAITLAND MERCURY, SATURDAY, APRIL 1, 1843. THE CULTIVATION OF THE VINE. In our notice of the Hunter River Society's dinner, in our publication of the 18th ultimo, we remarked that the colonial " white wines, which were very like Sauterne, were much approved of, and that when the vineyards have acquired age, and the gentlemen engaged in the manufacture have become more conversant with an art which has taken hundreds of years to bring to perfec- tion in Europe, there can be no doubt that wine will form a considerable article of export from the colony ;" but in making this passing and hasty remark we feel that full justice was scarcely done to the importance of the subject, and we therefore recur to it. In the remark which we then made we by no means intended to assert that the present pro- duce of our colonial vineyards cannot bear comparison with European wines. Some of the colonial white wines produced at the dinner were of excellent quality, and superior to the Sauterne placed ...

HUNTER RIVER DISTRICT NEWS. [FROM OUR CORRESPONDENTS.] NEWCASTLE. The police news this week is of no public in- terest; and the market still remains without variation.

BIG RIVER. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 1 April 1843

BIG RIVER. We have been kindly favoured by C. M. Doyle, Esq., with the following interesting let- ter addressed to him by a gentleman from a sta- tion on the Big River : Moree, Big River, Feb. 22nd 1843. SIR-I believe you have a station on the Mooney Creek, adjacent to the Barwin River. I much regret to say all the stations in that part must have suffered severely from the blacks. The cattle are coming into the Big River runs in droves of forty or fifty. Nothing but such an immense number of strangers have saved our herds from absolute destruction by the blacks. They have killed all Mr. Single's horses, and left only nine milking cows on the station ; but the object ot this letter is to direct your imme- diate attention to your herd on the Mooney Creek. I suspect you will find them scattered all over the country. I have seen a large number on the Big River, but there is a large tract of country between Mr. McDougall's station and the Barwin unocupied. The last fresh in the river sen...

ORIGINAL, CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 1 April 1843

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. GENTLEMEN-Being a resident on the Hunter, and deeply interested in common with my neigh- bours in the prosperity of the district in which we reside, I trust you will favour me with a reply to the following query. Is it usual to permit mounted policemen to retail goods in the government barracks to par- ties in the district, thereby injuring the store- keepers, whose welfare depends on the support of the settlers and others in their immediate neighbourhood?     If there is no restriction, it is time steps were taken to put a stop to such proceedings. If it is contrary to military orders, the matter should be at once looked to by the different officers in command of the several districts of the colony ; otherwise the subject must be laid before the proper authorities at head quarters. -I am, gentlemen, your obedient servant, A LOVER OF JUSTICE. Upper Hunter, 21st March, 1843. [We think it is a v...

COMMERCIAL REMARKS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 1 April 1843

COMMERCIAL REMARKS. Very little business has been transacted in the grain market during the past week, and the price of wheat seems to be rather on the decline ; it may now be quoted at from 3s. 6d. to 4s. per bushel : the Sydney price, according to a private letter which we have seen, addressed to a gentle- man in Maitland, may be quoted at 4s. 6d. per bushel for the very best samples : for good maize 4s. 6d. per bushel is given, though it is expected that there will shortly be a fall in the wholesale price of this article. The Maitland price averages about 3s. 9d. per bushel. Bread is now selling at 3½d. the 2lb loaf by all the bakers in the town. There has been no alteration in the price of butcher's meat. Owing to the great abundance of grass, butter has fallen in price, and is now selling at from 1s. 6d. to 1s. 9d. per lb. Nearly all kinds of fruit, with the exception of quinces and figs, have gone out of season.

To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 1 April 1843

To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. GENTLEMEN-Permit me, through the me- dium of your useful journal, to call public atten- tion to a subject which I deem of the utmost importance at the present time. I allude to the introduction of a small, say 1s. to 2s. per bushel, duty on all wheat imported into this colony, except that from Van Diemen's Land, or other of our neighbouring colonies. I am fully aware that this subject has already occupied the atten- tion of the colonial legislature, and that on it much diversity of opinion exists. It is, how- ever, a notorious fact that we annually send large sums of money out of the colony to South America and elsewhere for wheat; while at the   same time we have our thousands and tens of thousands of acres of available land unreclaimed, that are capable of producing abundantly. I am fully persuaded that if government were but to hold out to the settlers the slightest in- ducement in the shape of a duty on foreign wheat, in less ...

THE POOR BLACKS V. THE WHITE MEN. To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 1 April 1843

THE POOR BLACKS v. THE WHITE MEN. To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. GENTLEMEN-From recent accounts which have been received from the Namoi and Barwin rivers, the melancholy intelligence has reached this place of a most daring outrage, attended with loss of life, committed by the blacks at a station belonging to Mr. Samuel W. Cook, of Scone. A man named Thomas Rhodes, attended by a black boy, were in pursuit of their master's stock, when they fell in with a tribe of blacks in the act of spearing the cattle, and before the two unfortunate creatures could escape they were surrounded and a shower of spears sent upon them. The two were thus murdered, and their horses killed. The inhuman wretches, who were the assailants, then burnt the bodies of their victims to ashes. Rhodes bore the charac- ter of an excellent servant, and it is supposed that he came upon the murderers with fat cattle in their possession, which they had just speared. My informant says Rhodes was not a man of a re...

COLONIAL INTELLIGENCE. PORT PHILLIP. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 1 April 1843

COLONIAL INTELLIGENCE. PORT PHILLIP. We have received Port Phillip papers to the 18th March. His Honor Mr. Justice Willis, on the 14th ult., delivered his opinion at some length that the Melbourne Corporation Act (and consequently the Corporation Act of Sydney) is invalid. His Honor gave his opinion on the ground that he believed the bill to be in point of law incomplete and inoperative, without the royal approbation, and it was on that ground, and not on the ground of its being a law for taxation without representation, that he gave his opinion. His Honor however referred the decision of the question to the Sydney Judges. Mr. Wills has declined being put in nomina- tion for the representation of Melbourne in the New Legislative Council. Mr. Hull, merchant, has shipped on board the Ellen, which was on the point of sailing for London, a new article of export, consisting of samples of vegetable extracts, both in solution and cake, for tanning purposes. The samples were extracts from t...
