To the Independent Electors of the Boroughs of East and West Maitland and Newcastle. ENTLEMEN-In presenting myself as a _ Candidate for the honour of your sup- port at the approaching Election, I consider it proper to give you an outline of my principles. I am a friend to civil and religious liberty, and an enemy to all intolerance. I am for diffusing the blessings of education as widely as possible amongst the people. I am for the most rigid economy in every department of the government. I shall co-operate with the friends of the country in endeavouring to get rid orthe civil list, and to establish the right of appropriating na well as of raising the public revenue. This endeavour failing, I shall contend that the territorial revenue be conceded to us as an equivalent, on the same principle as it has been conceded in Canada. Seeing that the district councils created by the new Act of Parliament will entail a heavy local expenditure on the country districts, for improvements of all ...

THE MAITLAND MERCURY. SATURDAY, APRIL 8, 1843. LATEST ENGLISH NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 8 April 1843

THE MAITLAND MERCURY. SATURDAY, APRIL 8, 1843. LATEST ENGLISH NEWS. The following paragraph is extracted from a postcript in the Colonial Times of March 28th ; -" The news of the arrival at Launceston on   Monday last of the Agustina, from London the 9th December, was brought by this morning's mail. The China news had been received in London on the 20th November, and created much sensation. Wool had advanced one half- penny per lb., and was only restrained from a further advance by a suspicion of Chinese sin- cerity. The Tower and Park guns were fired on the 24th." THE ABORIGINES. THE very alarming intelligence relative to the sanguinary outrages of the blacks contained in a letter addressed to Mr. Doyle, which appeared in our last paper, and which is only part of a series of determined, deliberate, and well concerted depredations committed by them, calls loudly for the immediate notice of govern- ment; and if the government will not awake to a proper sense of its duty,...

HUNTER RIVER DISTRICT NEWS. [FROM OUR CORRESPONDENTS.] RAYMOND TERRACE. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 8 April 1843

HUNTER RIVER DISTRICT NEW. ["FROM OUR CORRESPONDENTS'.] RAYMOND TERRACE. His Honor Mr. Justice Burton paid a visit to the Terrace on his return from Maitland, dined with the Rev. Chas. Spencer, M.A., of' this place, and went off by the steamer the following morning (Saturday March 25).   The act for selling wine and beer by the two gallons has been extended to the Terrace ; this will encourage the cultivation of the vine in the district. ACCIDENT.-A most distressing accident happened a few days since on the Hunter, about a mile from this place. A lad about 15 years Of age, the son of a settler named Graham, was falling a tree, and by some means or other the tree fell on him, and buried him so completely that he was obliged to be dug out. Owing to the softness of the soil he escaped with his life, but his leg and thigh were shockingly fractured. Dr. Caddell promptly attended, and has suc- ceeded in reducing the fracture, so that every hope is entertained of his doing wel...

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 8 April 1843

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. GENTLEMEN-As this country is about to be taxed, it has just occurred to me that a tax similar to that which I am told has been adopted so successfully in America upon all bachelors above a certain age might be levied to great advantage here, as it must have a beneficial effect, either by realizing a considerable revenue for the state coffers, or teaching the bachelors that the only way of getting over "paying the     tax" is by "paying their addresses," and I assure you, gentlemen, there is every necessity of their being taught such a lesson, as the matri- monial horizon is more gloomy than the "com- mercial" at present; for when the merchant "fails," his creditors for the most part have the   melancholy satisfaction of holding a few of his "paper promises" to meet his engagements; but the case is different with my unfortunate sex, for when the bachelors " fail," it is but few of ...

SYDNEY NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 8 April 1843

SYDNEY NEWS. During the past week great excitement has been caused by the circumstances in which the Bank of Australia was found to be placed. An adjourned meeting of the shareholders was held on the 30th March, and from the report of the committee then presented it appeared that the debts owing to the bank by a few individuals amounted to more than a quarter of a million sterling. To meet its liabilities, the bank has borrowed from the Bank of Australasia £130,000, and is to have £20,000 more ; and it is expected that a further sum of £70,000 will be required. To repay these sums the Bank of Australia holds various securities upon landed properties, which could not be sold at the present time at anything like a reasonable price. At this meeting a committee was appointed to make further en- quiries. In consequence of these discoveries the notes of the bank have been refused by a great number of persons, though they are still cashed by the Bank of Australasia. A meeting of the shareh...

BRITISH EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 8 April 1843

BRITISH EXTRACTS. STEAM NAVIGATION ACROSS THE ATLANTIC.- We see, says the Laro, with much regret, several indications that steam navigation across the Atlantic, which is such a noble proof of Eng- land's skill, and which has conferred so much benefit on trade, is not successful as a mercantile speculation. The Great Western Company is reported to be unable to pay its way. Cunard's Line, or the North American Mail Company, though it has received £20,000 a year more to carry the mails than the contract was originally made for, is said to yield no profit. The West India Mail Packet Company seems to be a com- plete failure. ROYAL STEAM YACHT.-The inconvenience experienced by her Majesty during her recent voyage to Scotland, on account of the slow pro- gress of the royal yacht, has indoced the Board of Admiralty to order a steam vessel to be con- structed forthwith, with every possible conveni- ence for her Majesty's accommodation, whenever she may indulge the wish to take a trip to sea....

COMMERCIAL REMARKS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 8 April 1843

COMMERCIAL REMARKS. The price of wheat still continues gradually, to lower. The best colonial samples are not fetching more than from 4s. 6d. to 4s. 9d. per bushel. The highest price offered for good wheat in Maitland does not exceed 4s. 3d. per bushel; for inferior samples, 3s. Very little is however selling, as those who hold grain are keeping it back in expectation of an advance in the price. The price of maize appears to have undergone little or no alteration since our last. During the week flour has fallen at Nicholson's steam mills, and the prices for cash now are fine flour, 15s. per 100lbs. ; second, 13s. ; ration, 11s. At the Morpeth mills the prices are the same, with the exception of ration, which is 12s. per 100lbs.   There has been no alteration in the price of   butcher's meat or bread, which remain as at our last quotations. The retail price of tea has fallen, and this article is now sold at from 1s. 6d. to 2s. per lb. No alteration has taken...

IMPOUNDINGS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 8 April 1843

IMPOUNDINGS. At Muswellbrook, from Edinglassie-one red bull, has the ends of both ears cut off, age about fifteen months, is, branded on the off rump, but in a perfectly unintelligible manner. Also, for trespass at Overton-one white unbranded heifer, age about 15 months ; one bundled working bullock, is branded on the off rump, but indis- tinctly has, some resemblence to IR, a piece of   left ear cutoff; one brown and white spotted cow; a minute description of the brands on this beast cannot be taken for the following reasons :-First, the beast is excessively wild and restless; secondly, the pound yard is ill con- structed, and not at all adapted to ensure a correct description of cattle on their first enter- ing from the bush. As near as maybe, how- ever, the description of the abovementioned beast is as follows-colour, brown and white spotted, brands, on near rump, ribs, and shoul- der JC, on near thigh JM, with some appearance of a brand above ; on off rump IS, under...

To tlie Independent Electors of the Northumberland Boroughs. tf^i ENTLEMEN-It having been intimated ^JPT 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 consis...
