BRITISH EXTRACTS. The debate on the Regency Law began and ended on the 29th August in the Fi*ench Chamber of Peers, and was passed by 163 votes against 14. New Colony in New Zealand.-Mr. George Rennie, the unseated member for Ipswich, on behalf of himself and others, has proposed to found a fourth colony in New Zealand, under the auspices of the New Zealand Company. The plan is novel and ingenious. It is to appropriate 100,000 acres of land (600 for the chief town), which shall be completely surveyed and laid out for disposal among the settlers, in allotments, and in towns; that roads and bridges shall be at once formed, with other primary conveyances for a trading community; and that all this shall be done before the main body of settlers be carried to the spot. The allotments will     consist of one quarter-acre of town land, twenty surburban aces, and eighty rural acres, to be sold for £125 each allotment. Of the £140,000 thus raised, £40,000 will go to ...

TO CORRESPONDENTS. We have issued a large number of copies of the " Mercury" of the first and present publica- tion to the inhabitants of the town and dis- trict, gratis. As we must now discontinue doing so, those parties who wish to receive the Mercury regularly will please to forward their names and address either to the agents of their respective districts, or to the proprietors, Maitland. "Five Electors."—On account of the press   of matter which we received at a late hour yesterday, we are reluctantly compelled to omit the above communication.

HUNTER RIVER DISTRICT NEWS. [FROM OUR CORRESPONDENTS.] NEWCASTLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 14 January 1843

HUNTER RIVER DISTRICT NEWS. [from our correspondents.-] NEWCASTLE. THE WEATHER.-The hot winds which pre- vailed on Sunday last, and which were much hotter than have been felt for some time past, have caused considerable injury both to the fruit and vegetables in this neighbourhood; still, however the supply is tolerably good, and the prices of the things may be quoted as in our last. DEATH BY DROWNING.-A shocking accident occurred on Sunday last at Nobby's Island. Some of the prisoners stationed there were fishing with a line, which became entangled amongst the rocks and could not be got up again. One of the men named John Bennett (per Claudine) being a good swimmer, was so foolish as to plunge into the water for the pur- pose of disentangling the line, with his irons on. His companions thought he was a considerable time before he reappeared, and at length became somewhat alarmed ; and after undergoing much risk to themselves in searching for him, they at length succeeded in getting...

SYDNEY NEWS. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT] Thursday Evening, Jan. 12. The city council met to-day, and decided that the water at the Hyde Park water-pipes should be sold at 1s. a cask, which it is computed will yield a revenue of from £10 to £20 a day ; a person to superintend the supply is to be ap- pointed, at a salary of £2 a week. Similar officers are to be appointed at Darling Harbour and the Dockyard. The consideration of the market regulations was postponed until the next meeting, on Monday ; when it was understood that the report of the water committee would also be ready. The Supreme Court sat to-day, and the convict Macdonald, who effected his escape some time ago from Parramatta gaol, was tried, and found guilty of the murder of the turnkey, and sen- tenced to be executed.

THE ELECTION.—PUBLIC MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 14 January 1843

THE ELECTION.-PUBLIC MEETING. On Monday last a public meeting of 'the inhabitants of Maitland and the Sun- ter River district was held at the Rose Inn, "West Maitland, pursuant to''adver- tisement, "for the purpose of taking mea- sures to invite candidates to represent the district in the forthcoming Legislative Assembly." The meeting was advertised to take place at twelve o'clock, but owing to so few persons being present, the business did not commence until about half-past one. ít was by no means numerously attended, which was probably owing to the short notice which had been given of it, and which could scarcely have reached beyond the immediate vicinity of Maitland. The chair was occupied by James Reid, Esq., of Newcastle, who read the adver- tisement calling the meeting, and said it appeared from a notice published in the Government Gazette of January 6th that the county of Northumberland was to return one representative, and the towns of East Maitland, West Maitland, and New- ...

THE MAITLAND MERCURY, SATURDAY, JANUARY 14, 1843. TflE NEW CONSTITUTION. The Act for the future government of the colony of New South Wales and Van Diemen's Land was proclaimed in a Government Gazette extraordinary on Thursday, January the 5th, and on the following day the heads of a bill to be laid before the present legislature " to provide for the election of members to serve in the Legislative Council" was also published, for which we refer our readers to the fourth page. By this bill the colony is divided into electoral districts. Whether this division will be adopted cannot of course be known until the bill has gone through the council, but it is probable that it will. The council is summoned to meet on the 24th instant, for the purpose of proceeding with the bill, and when it shall have passed it, and have made all the necessary arrange- ments for the ensuing elections, it will cease to exist. It will be seen that for the present the district of Port Phillip is to have 5 memb...

Morpeth, Jan. 1st, 1843. GENTLEMEN-It pains me to urge upon   your notice that a sum in bills to the   amount of £523 10s. lid. is still outstanding on account of St, Peter's Church, and must be liquidated, but which never can be without effort. Feeling a serious responsibility from backing the bills in question-signed under an impression that they would gradually lessen and observing no endeavour on the part of the inhabitants of Maitland to assist to keep them under, I have taken upon me to suggest that a subscription be immediately commenced, and frequently repeated, till this very great incum brance be removed. If a quarterly payment were to be made of the frequenters of ten shillings, it would not fall very heavilyon them, and would gradually lessen the debt. I am, gentlemen, Yours sincerely, E. C. CLOSE. The Rev. G. K. Rusden, and Messrs. Kingsmill and William Eckford. Churchwardens of St. Peter's, East Maitland. Notice. In consequence of this letter,...

For the city of Sydney the candidates are Captain O'Connell, Dr. Bland, Mr. W. C. Wentworth, Mr. Hustler, and Mr. Robert Cooper, all of whom come forward upon liberal principles, and whose addresses have now been some time before the public. Messrs. J. Macarthur, W. Lawson, and W. Bowman have offered themselves for the county of Cumberland. The political principles of the former gentleman are well known ; Mr. Lawson's principles are something similar; Mr. Bowman in his address to the electors does not at present make any professions of political opinion, but is determined "to go into the council totally free, and unfettered to any party." For the town of Parramatta only one candidate has yet come forward, viz., Mr. H. H. Macarthur, whose opinions and principles have long been before the public. Major L...
