THE MAITLAND MERCURY. SATURDAY, APRIL 22, 1843. REGISTRATION OF VOTERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 22 April 1843

THE MAITLAND MERCURY. SATURDAY, APRIL 22, 1843. REGISTRATION OF VOTERS. THIS being the last day on which parties can send in their claims to have their names inserted in the electoral list, or their objections to names already appearing thereon, we would advise those persons who may have a legal claim to vote, and whose names have been omitted, to lose no time in sending their claim to the office of Mr. M'Curdy, or they will be excluded from voting at the coming election. A great number of objections have, we believe, been made by both parties in Maitland, and from all we can learn there is likely to be a pretty large number of claimants ; but, as far as we can ascertain, there have not been as yet a very great number, either of claims or objections, sent to the clerk of the bench ; as we before observed, if this is not done to-day it will be too late. Several parties who are enrolled as freeholders have, we be- lieve, been objected to on both sides, and as the act of parliament wit...

HUNTER RIVER DISTRICT NEWS. [FROM OUR CORRESPONDENTS.] BLACK CREEK. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 22 April 1843

HUNTER RIVER DISTRICT NEWS. [FROM OUR CORRESPONDENTS.] BLACK CREEK. The country round this district was never in finer condition; the grass is most luxuriant. Trade however is very dull. The traffic on this road during the wool season has not been so great as it was in previous years, owing to the opening of the line of road from New England to Port Macquarie; and the men who travel backwards and forwards have scarcely any money to expend even in the purchase of mere neces- saries, their whole property consisting of orders. DUNGOG. The late corn in this quarter will not be fit for market, and it is by far too late ; and as the season is now changing and the cold weather coming on, should it prove ever so propitious it will be at least a month before the corn is fit for pulling. Cattle are very fat, and from all ap- pearance will continue to be so. If the Mait- land butchers want something to attract the attention of their customers they should come up to this quarter for a few head ...

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. PROTECTIVE DUTIES. To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 22 April 1843

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. PROTECTIVE DUTIES. To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. GENTLEMEN-In a late number of the Herald appears a long, elaborate, and very able letter, signed Alexander Berry, on the necessity of affording protection to the wheat producers of the colony. Though far from undervaluing the important information that letter contains, and the cogency of argument by which it is distin- guished, yet it appears to us that two principles, which are throughout assumed by Mr. Berry as if they were proved, admitted, and incontro- vertible, are still matters of question; and, while they remain unproven, must materially affect the validity of that gentleman's reasoning. These principles I would now propose for the consideration of your readers, in the shape of questions. 1. Is this a wheat producing country; that is, can this country in an average of years, with its present resources of labour, undertake to pro- duce as much wheat as the necessities of its population will re...

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

SYDNEY NEWS. Tuesday last being the first day of the term I their honors the three Judges took their seats upon the bench in their purple robes. The Chief Justice delivered the judgment of the court in the case of quo warranto, sent up from Port Phillip by Mr. Justice Willis, touching the right of Mr. Stephen to hold office as a town councillor for Melbourne. It appeared a rule nisi, in the nature of a quo warranto, had been obtained by Mr. J. P. Fawkner calling upon Mr. Stephen to show cause why he held the office of a town councillor ; the rule was sub- sequently answered, and an application made for it to be discharged, upon which the resident judge referred the matter to a full court. The Chief Justice stated that the court was of opinion that Mr. Stephen was duly qualified for the office, and that one corporator could not make an objection against another to deprive him of   his seat, when the same objection applied to himself. His Honor remarked upon Mr. Justice W...

To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 22 April 1843

To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. GENTLEMEN-Being a staunch admirer of that truly English sport horse racing, I was induced to attend the last race meeting held at the Rose Inn, West Maitland, and felt deep regret on finding so small an attendance, being convinced that even in these bad times races have a tendency to cause a circulation of money, and thereby benefit in some measure our once flourishing district. It was proposed to have on the middle day of the races a race three mile heats. Now, gentleman, the plan by which to add extra sport to these races 1 submit would be, to render this race a close imitation of the Farmers' Cups and Hunters' Stakes so generally run for at nearly all the meetings in England. Furthermore, I would in this race exclude jockeys, the riders to be subject to the approval of the stewards, and so to arrange the weights that the owners might ride their own horses ; say, 11 stone each ; or 3 years old, 10 stone 7 lbs., and 7 lbs. for each year after...

To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 22 April 1843

To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. GENTLEMEN-In these times of depression it behoves all men to look about them and point out such abuses as may come under their notice ; and this, I trust, will be a sufficient excuse for the few remarks with which I am about to trouble you. Just at this time there are a great number of teams coming down from the country, the men accompanying which have nothing but orders, not more than a tithe of which are worth the paper they are written upon, for immediate payment. It is not therefore sur- prising that men should refuse to go up the country, as shepherds, &c, when they find that their wages are paid in such paper that one half the amount is in many instances necessarily sacrificed before they can realize any money. In addition to this, the system of settlers charging their men thirty per cent more for any articles drawn from their stores than they could purchase them elsewhere, if they were paid as honor and honesty demanded, has a g...

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

PORT PHILLIP. The Geelong Advertiser of Monday, April 3rd, states that the Rev. Mr. Tuckfield has devoted himself to the task of bringing into a state of civilization one entire tribe of aborigines ; and in order to accomplish this end he proposes to devote his undivided attention to the Colagian tribe alone ; to keep them continually under his eye ; to isolate that tribe from all other tribes ; to prevent the neighbouring tribes from trespas- sing upon the territory selected ; to disperse all tumultuous gatherings of the blacks; and to use every argument and inducement to the tribe thus isolated from the influence of bad example, and protected from the inroads, the vengeance, and the ridicule of their less polished brethren, to prevail upon them to abandon their wandering life, and to accustom themselves to habits of fixed and regular industry. Already have two of the men built substantial slab huts. The grand feature of Mr. Tuckfield's plan is the complete isolation of the tribe.<...

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

ENGLISH NEWS. The workmen engaged in constructing the iron railing on the top of the Monument, for the prevention of suicides in future from that fearful height, completed their labours on the 8th November. The whole of the gallery on the top of the Monument is now inclosed with strong bars of iron, of sufficient height to allow persons to stand upright, and of width not to obstruct the view ; the work, being all painted white, is scarcely perceptible from below. Considerable excitement existed among the buyers of wool from Yorkshire and the West of England, at the early November sales, in London, in consequence of its having transpired that some of the wools from the colonies had been falsely packed ; the finer qualities of wools having been placed at the ends of the bales, while in the middle there were inferior samples, with occasionally dust, stones, and other valueless articles, to deceive the buyer. A meeting of the buyers was held in Mason's Hall, Basinghall-street, and a res...

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

NEW ZEALAND. We have been favoured by a gentleman of Maitland with the following extract of a letter received from an officer at Auckland : " March 15th, 1843.-I have taken several trips a few miles from this town (Auckland), and have discovered in the course of my perambulations several national caves, some of them of great extent, but what renders them to me objects of particular interest is the circum- stance of them being the repositories of vast quantities of human bones ; and I know of no position more calculated to excite than to seat yourself in one of these gloomy vaults, sur- rounded on all sides by relics of mortality ; the remains of savages who existed hundreds of years ago. I discovered a cave of this kind last Sunday, about five miles from this. In length it measured about 100 feet, and in breadth might be about 50, with a height of 16 or l8. On the ground, in piles, were human heads and bones, in great numbers ; and one skeleton I discovered lying at full length, wit...

CAPE OF GOOD HOPE. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 22 April 1843

CAPE OP GOOD HOPE. Cape papers have been received to the 10th January at Launceston, from which we learn that disturbances had again broken out among the Boers, and a military force had been de- spatched to suppress them. They reached Coles- berg in the latter end of December. Intelligence had also reached Graham's Town that the Caffers were in a highly excited state, from erroneously believing that the troops sent against the Boers had been destroyed by the latter. Those of the Gaika and Slamblic tribes were said to be the most highly excited against the government, and the whole mischief was ascribed to Dutch agency. News from Fort Peddie this morning confirms our report of the state of feeling in Cafferland, and the fact of a general preparation making for war. Eno, Kama, and Kye have officially warned the officials at Fort Peddie. Eno has sent messengers to Sandilli to ask him what he is about. It is said that the cattle of many Boers are in Cafferland for safety.-Graham's Toion...

To tlie Independent Electors of tbe Northumberland Borougbs. Ci ENTLEMEN-It having been intimated j" 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 sbaikjalwajs 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 consiste...
