THE MAITLAND MERCURY. SATURDAY, APRIL 15, 1843. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 15 April 1843

THE MAITLAND MERCURY. SATURDAY, APRIL 15, 1843. AMIDST the general gloom and depression with which we are still struggling, it is gratifying to perceive some slight symp- toms of reaction. The news which has arrived in England respecting the state of affairs in China has already had the effect of causing an advance in the price of colonial wool; and though this advance is at present but very small, there is good ground for believing that it will consider- ably increase. But we attach still more importance, as a means of renewing our prosperity, to the knowledge which has been acquired by the colonists in the ordeal through which the colony is passing. The difficulties with which we are surrounded have opened people's eyes to the necessity of acting upon sounder principles than have hitherto been adopted—they have taught us to feel that we must depend more upon our own resources and exertions ; and the knowledge which has been thus acquired cannot fail, if rightly and vigo- rously ap...

REGATTA.-A few spirited individuals have raised a subscription for a regatta on Easter Monday in our harbour ; and it is expected that several sailing and rowing matches will come off. It is also likely that we shall have two or three good horse races on the same day. These sports will tend to enliven our good townsfolks these dull times, and if the weather proves propitious, there can be no doubt but they will go off with considerable eclat. JERRY'S PLAINS. HIGHWAY ROBBERY.-On Saturday morning last, as a shepherd in the employment of Mr. George Bowman was returning from his station he was stopped on the road by two men in the service of Mr. James Hall, of Wamboo, who robbed him of a pair of trousers and a razor.

SPORTING INTELLIGENCE. PAGE'S RIVER RACES. (From our correspondent.) These races came off on Tuesday and Wed- nesday, the 4th and 5th of April. Nothing could exceed the regularity and good order which prevailed, there was no occasion for even a constable.

What with election- eering, horse racing, and plenty of rain, the times are improving throughout our township. The result of the different races is given below. Dr. Gill was the judge ; the stewards were Dr. Milner, Mr. Edward White, and Mr. George Loder; clerk of the course, Mr. A. S. F. Mackintosh ; honorary secretary, Mr. Thomas Haydon.

The Queen was in good health, and her third confinement was expected to take place in the month of January. A company is about to be formed in London for effecting communication between England and India by means of an aerial steam carriage ; a patent has been taken out, and it is calculated that the distance from London to our Indian possessions will be accomplished in four days. It is stated in the Hobart Town Adver- tiser that the price of wool had risen Id. per lb. The shareholders in the Sydney Banking Com- pany held a special general meeting on Wednes- day, pursuant to advertisement, at which the fullest investigation was entered into, and the result was satisfactory to all parties.

COMMERCIAL REMARKS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 15 April 1843

COMMERCIAL REMARKS. In the grain market there is very little difference, there being in fact scarcely any business doing, the holders of grain keeping back their produce on account of the lowness of price, and the buyers being no way eager to purchase. The prices seem to have undergone scarcely any variation since our last; some very superior samples of wheat have realized 4s. a bushel, but the average price is about 3s. 6d. Maize may be quoted at from 3s. 3d: to 3s. 6d. per bushel. Flour and bread are without any alteration.   The price of tea seems to be on the decline, which is probably owing in some measure to the system of weekly sales which has recently been introduced into Sydney, and which, if continued, will no doubt be productive of great advantages to the small purchaser. The report in the Aus- tralian of Wednesday last, that the sales were discontinued, turns out to be unfounded. The price of tea per chest in Maitland is now from £6 to £6 10s., and per lb. f...

ENGLISH NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 15 April 1843

ENGLISH NEWS. By the arrival oí the Clarendon on Saturday   last, from Greenock, we have received in- telligence from Great Britian to the 24th Novem- ber ; but there does not appear to be any news of a very interesting nature. The news of the peace with China reached England by telegraphic despatch on the 21st November, and caused an immediate rise in the funds. Parliament had been prorogued to the 13th Dec, but it was expected to be further prorogued to the latter end of January or the beginning of February. The distress among the labouring classes ap- pears to have undergone no alteration. There was to be a sale of 17,000 bales of colonial wool the last week in November, to commence on the 24th. The ship Reliance, from China, with a cargo of 27,000 chests of tea, ran ashore near Boulogne, and became a complete wreck. One hundred and ten lives were lost ; only six of her were saved. Among the deaths were those of Dr. Sandes, Bishop of Cashel, Sir G. Walker, Lieutenant...

UPPER HUNTER. PUBLIC MEETING AT JERRY'S PLAINS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 15 April 1843

UPPER HUNTER. PUBLIC MEETING AT JERRY'S PLAINS. On Monday, the 4th instant, a meeting of the electors of Brisbane, Bligh, and Hunter was held at Alcorn's Victoria Inn, Jerry's Plains. The chair was taken by R. L. Jenkins, Esq., who opened the business of the meeting by reading the advertisement by which it was con- vened, and said that the electors had already had an opportunity of hearing Captain Scott's sentiments, and they would now be addressed by Messrs. H. Dangar and M'Intyre. He wished to impress on the minds of the electors the necessity there was for electing men of integrity to fill the important office of their representa- tives ; and he trusted they would use great deli- beration before they gave any pledges, as the future prosperity of the colony mainly depended on their choice in this, the first election. He would not trespass longer on their time, but leave the candidates to address them. Mr. M'INTYRE then rose, and said he came before them in consequence of having re...

COMMERCIAL REMARKS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 22 April 1843

COMMERCIAL REMARKS. There is no great change in the price obtained for grain during the past week. Very little wheat is offered for sale, and the price remains much about the same, the very best samples not fetching more than 4s. a bushel. From a pri- vate letter which we have seen, it appears that not more than 4s. 9d. per bushel can now be realized in Sydney for the very best samples of white lammas wheat, which is considered to be the' most superior kind of grain. Of barley there appears to be little or none in the market. Indeed very little attention has been bestowed upon its cultivation, which is the more to be regretted as if it were more plentiful there can be little doubt that malting operations would be carried on to a considerable extent in the colony, and the importation of malt liquors would be considerably deminished : we trust, however, that the farmers will ere long turn their attention to the cultivation of barley, for which we are assured there is much land well ad...

To the Independent Electors of the Boroughs of East and "West maitland and Newcastle. GENTLEMEN-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, of the civil list, and to establish the right of appropriating' as 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 di...
