SELECT POETRY. THE FIRST. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 29 April 1843

SELECT POETRY. THE FIRST. The first, the first!-oh! nought like it Our after years can bring, For summer hath no flowers so sweet As those of early spring. The earliest storm that strips the tree Still wildest seems and worst ; Whate'er hath been again may be, But never as at first. For many a bitter blast may blow O'er life's uncertain wave, And many a thorny thicket grow Between us and the grave ; But darker still the spot appears Where thunder-clouds have burst Upon our green, unblighted years- No grief is like the first ! Our first-born joy-perchance 'twas vain- Yet that brief lightning o'er, The heart, indeed, may hope again, But can rejoice no more. Life hath no glory to bestow Like it-unfallen, uncursed ; There may be many an after glow, But nothing like the first ! Tlie rays of hope may light us on Through manhood's toil and strife, But never can they shine as shone The morning stars of life ; Though bright as summer's rosy wreath, Though long and fondly nursed, Yet still th...

THE MAITLAND MERCURY. SATURDAY, APRIL 29, 1843. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 29 April 1843

THE MAITLAND MERCURY. SATURDAY, APRIL 29, 1843. Since the cessation of the electioneering excitement, the Sydney journals have been chiefly filled with discussions upon the causes of the present general depression, and the measures requisite for restoring the colony to a prosperous condition. In the multitude of counsellors, it is said, there is wisdom; and we cannot but believe that in the various opinions put forward much useful information has been elicited, and many valuable suggestions made. As might be expected, our present distress is accounted for in as many various ways, as, there are writers upon the subject. The abrupt termination of the transporta- tion system- the great influx of British capital- the high price of land-the scar- city and dearness of labour-the absence of all demand for the surplus stock of our sheep and stock holders-the excessive importation of provisions and other arti- cles which we ought to have produced our- selves-have each been pointed out as the...

THE ELECTORAL LISTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 29 April 1843

THE ELECTORAL LISTS. Tlie lists containing the names of those per- sons claiming to be enrolled on the electoral list, and of those whose names have been objected to, are now published, and we find that for the boroughs of East and West Maitland there are fifty-five new claimants. The number of claims in all amounts to eighty-nine; of which fifty-five, as above stated, are new claims, twenty-seven claim to be registered as house- holders who were previously registered as freeholders, two who vere registered as free- holders claim to be again registered as such, two who were registered as householders claim again as householders, and three have appa- rently claimed because their names in the previous list were wrongly entered. The number of objections for the two boroughs is one hundred and twenty-five, of which seventy-one have been objected to as free- holders ; but of this latter number twenty-two have claimed to be registered as householders. Of the claims sent in fifty-two have ...

HUNTER RIVER DISTRICT NEWS. [FROM OUR CORRESPONDENTS.] RAYMOND TERRACE. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 29 April 1843

HUNTER RIVER DISTRICT NEWS. (from our correspondents.)   RAYMOND TERRACE Mr. Dee has succeeded in obtaining a license for the new hotel lately built by Mr. Keddie, and we understand he intends to designate it by the sign of the "Freemason's Arms" in honor of the ancient fraternity of which "mine host" is a brother.               The police court sat to-day: present Major   Crummer and Colonel Snodgrass.

MURDER AT THE MANNING RIVER. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 29 April 1843

MURDER AT THE MANNING ,RIVER. An account of a most diabolical murder com-   mitted, on the 1st January, at Mount George, on the Manning' River, has been furnished to the Sydney Morning Herald by a correspondent, the substance of which is as follows:-It appears that one John Chapman, an assigned servant to Miss Kelly, had for along time past cohabited with a black gin named Maria, belonging to a black fellow called Mickey Ugly, of the Gangat tribe. About the 2nd or 3rd January last Mickey was missing, and search being made for him in all directions without effect, the rest of the tribe expressed their suspicions that he had been murdered by Chapman. On the morning of the 8th January, as a Mr. Rose and Mr. Wat- son who reside on Yankangat estate were stand- ing in front of the house, they heard a sudden and dreadful yelling from the natives on the opposite bank of the river, some distance higher up. On going to the place they found a number of blacks assembled round a hea...

THE FRANCHISE. To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 29 April 1843

THE FRANCHISE. To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. Gentlemen-In reading the addresses which have been published by the candidates for the representation of the Northumberlatid boroughs, I am surprised to observe that neither of them have said a word about that important subject, the elective franchise. Whether they think the qualification fixed by the British parliament high, low, or perfection, they have not thought proper to inform us.       Is it important that the constituency should be placed on as broad a basis as possible, or should it be confied to a few?' 'Can bribery or corruption be practised in a large constituency as easily and effectively as they may be in a   small one ? Is it strict justice to compel men to pay taxes who have no voice in choosing their representatives? Is a man who pays £19 per annum, fit only to be taxed ? Are men who occupy houses under £20 a year, leaseholders who perhaps pay £100 per annum f...

THE SQUATTERS AND THE GOVERNMENT. To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 29 April 1843

THE SQUATTERS AND THE GOVERN- MENT. To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. GENTLEMEN-It has often struck me, in no- ticing the course adopted by our fellow colonists on public matters, that in very many instances either "bounce" or "gammon" (most expressive words in Australia) may be clearly traced through all their proceedings, while in comparatively few are their acts marked by that honest, straight- forward firmness of purpose which would lead most directly and certainly to the object sought. Perhaps in few instances can the infusion of a large proportion of the first named principle be more readily discerned, and in none are its mischievous effects more to be deplored, than in the steps taken by the squatters, as they are termed, on different accasions, in representing their grievances to the government. As a case in point, I would refer you to the steps taken respectively by the Governor and the squatters   respecting 'the withdrawal of his license from Mr. Lee (o...

SYDNEY NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 29 April 1843

SYDNEY NEWS. An immense natural cavern has been dis- covered at Burrangilong Creek, near Bathurst, by W. R. Davidson, Esq., assistant surveyor, which is about twice the size of the celebrated Fingal's Cave, in the island of Staffa; and three or four times larger than Okey Hole, on the south side of the Mendip Hills. The roof and sides of the cavern are composed of stalaclîto of every variety of colour, "white, yellow, pale pink and green," and every imaginable shape and size, " some oblong and conical, some round and irregular, twisted and turned into all imaginable fantastic diversities, griffins, and rampart lions, dead sheep, trussed fowls, sceptres, swords and switches," at least so says Mr. Gil- bert Wright, who has furnished a long account of the discovery to the Sydney Herald, and according to whom this " is the sublimest and most fantastic of nature's freak's." A large quantity of petrified wood, and a number of petrified bones of the wallabie, and wombat, were found in the ...

COLONIAL INTELLIGENCE. VAN DIEMEN'S LAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 29 April 1843

COLONIAL INTELLIGENCE. VAN DIEMEN'S LAND. Mr. Bicheno, the new Colonial Secretary, and Mr. Seymour, assistant secretary, had arrived per the John Renwick. The newly appointed bishop, Dr. Nixon, had also arrived per the North Britain, prison ship. All the assigned servants of Mr. Shone had been withdrawn by the government, as the papers say, because Mr. Shone did not capture some bushrangers who have been committing many depredations on life and property. AS Mr. Kermode and Major Wentworth were entering the Hibernia Hotel, a few nights ago, at Launceston, a drunken fellow assaulted Mr. Kermode by a violent blow on the head ; he was   pursued by Major Wentworth, but managed to escape.-Launceston Paper.   It is said that eighteen hundred tons of potatoes will be this year shipped from Port Sorell ; the quantity of wheat in Van Diemen's Land is also said to be very great.

COMMERCIAL REMARKS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 29 April 1843

COMMERCIAL REMARKS. The prices of all descriptions of grain remain as at our last quotations. Flour also keeps a stationary price. Bread is selling at from 3d. to 3½d. the 2lb. loaf; and there has been a fall in the price of butcher's meat of a half-penny per lb., beef and mutton are now 2d. per lb. Vegetables are plentiful and cheap. Dairy produce same as last week. There has been no alteration in the price of tea or sugar, the former remains steady at from £5 to £5 10s. per chest. We understand that sugar in the Manila market is on the advance, and has already risen about three quarters of a dollar per cwt, and is likely to be still higher. This is probably owing to the great demand ; the Americans have lately been large purchasers in the Manila market, and the peace with China has also given an impulse to the trade of Manila. Sugar, may therefore be expected to advance in price before long. We are glad to find that Canterbury sugars have at length found their way into the Maitlan...

SYDNEY NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 29 April 1843

SYDNEY NEWS. An estimate of the probable expenditure and resources of the City Council for 1843 was laid before that body by the Mayor at a meeting on Friday, the 21st instant, from which it appears that the expenditure is estimated at £19,090 9s 11d, and the revenue at £20,412 8s 9d. Three hundred and seventy-two persons have claimed to have their names inserted in the electoral list of Sydney, and fifty-two have been objected to. The committees of Messrs. Wentworth and Bland and Captain O'Connell were busily engaged in revising and examining the electoral list. The Australian intimates that Mr. Hustler is likely to withdraw from the contest, and that Mr. Cooper is "all behind," the bulk of his supporters, it appears, being unqualified to vote.

BRITISH EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 29 April 1843

BRITISH EXTRACTS. Foreign Cattle and Provisions.-The im- portation of foreign cattle and of salted provi- sions is increasing, and there is every reason to expect that this will become a very great trade. Hull, which is so conveniently situated with regard to Hamburgh, is the chief place for the importation of the former, and Liverpool for the latter. The number of cattle imported into Hull alone has now increased to about 250 head per week, and it will increase steadily, and ultimately become very large. The countries from which live stock have been received up to the present time are Holstein, Hanover, Holland, Belgium, France, and Spain. The places from which salted provisions have been received ore the United States, Canada, Hamburgh, and Archangel, in Russia. Preparations are also making to send large quantities from Buenos Ayres. This trade also promises to become one of great extent, although the quality of the salt meat yet imported is indifferent, and the mode of preparing ...

SYDNEY NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 6 May 1843

SYDNEY NEWS. It is reported that Admiral Parker, of her Majesty's ship Cornwallis, will visit Sydney as soon as her Majesty's ratification of the treaty of peace reached China, which it was expected would be about the last week in March. A meeting was held at the Australian Club house on Saturday, to take into consideration the necessity of appointing a deputation to wait upon his Excellency and submit to him " the necessity'of interposing the credit and assistance of government, between the owners of real pro- perty and the banking establishments of the colony." The meeting was postponed until next week. , As a sign of the times, it may be mentioned that there were nearly 2000 cases for adjudication at the opening of the Sydney court of requests. It is said that the elections are not to take place on the same day as originally intended. In order that all the returns made be made at about the same time, the Sydney election will be the last. A new journal called the John Bull has jus...

COMMERCIAL REMARKS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 6 May 1843

COMMERCIAL REMARKS. There has been no alteration whatever in the price of grain or flour, either at the stores or at the mills ; bread, meat, dairy produce, and vegetables also remain without any change. Tea remains firm at from £5 7s. to £5 15s. per chest, and sugar has undergone no alteration. There does not seem to be any great demand. New maize is being rapidly brought into the market, and the prices obtained average about 2s. 9d. per bushel. Fuel retains its price. There is very little demand for stock of any kind. The prices now obtained are for fat cat- tle from 8s. to 10s. per cwt. Good milking cows bring from £3 to £3 10s. each, and working bul- locks from £3 10s. to £4. Horses are selling at from £16 to £30. Sheep-ewes are selling at 3s. 6d. to 4s. each, and wethers from 6s. to 7s.. There appears to be a great scarcity of money, and numberless complaints are made by all parties having commodities for sale.
