To the Independent Electors of the Northumberland Boroughs. áf^i ENTLEMEN-It having been intimated ^JH| 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 consiste...
THE MAITLAND MERCURY. SATURDAY, MAY 13, 1843. REGISTRATION OF VOTERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 13 May 1843
THE MAITLAND MERCURY. SATURDAY, MAY 13, 1843. REGISTRATION OF VOTERS. The magistrates have been engaged during the whole of the past week in re- vising the electoral list for the boroughs of East and West Maitland ; and every objection or claim which has been brought under their notice has been investigated with the greatest patience. Both parties have carried on the contest in the regis- tration court with great perseverance and warmth, but, with the exception of one or two trivial instances, harmony and good feeling have been maintained throughout the whole proceedings ; and though party spirit appears to have run very high, nothing like acrimony or personal ani- mosity has been displayed. There have certainly been some very contradictory opinions sworn to regarding the value of property on both sides, which on the whole would seem to prove that the value of real property in Maitland is somewhat less than we had supposed. Indeed, from the value which landlords themselves have put ...
SAVINGS BANK. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 13 May 1843
SAVINGS BANK. His Excellency the Governor having appointed W. Miller, Esq., deputy commissary general, Mr. Hastings Elwin, the chairman of the Trust Company, and Mr. Thomas Icely a committee to investigate the affairs of the Savings Bank, &nbsp; those gentlemen presented their report on Mon- day last, and his Excellency directed it to be published for general information. This docu- ment is extremely valuable from its searching and impartial character, and will go a great way to counteract the efforts of those malignant individuals who are still endeavouring to pro mote the run upon the Savings Bank. We sub- join the most essential part of the report. We are glad to perceive from the Herald of Wed- nesday that public confidence was so far restored in the bank that on Saturday hist upwards of £1100 was deposited in it. "The liabilities and assets we find to be as under : LIABILITIES. £ s. d. Due to depositors. 164,520 0 0 ASSETS. Lent on mortgage. 116,050 0 0 Bills discounted...
SYDNEY NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 13 May 1843
SYDNEY NEWS. THE PRESENT MONETARY DEPRESSION. - PUBLIC MEETING.-A public meeting was held, in pursuance of previous advertisement, yes- terday afternoon in the Exchange Room of the Royal Hotel, for the purpose of taking into con- sideration the best and most effectual means of relieving the present monetary depression of the colony. The meeting was attended by about three hundred persons, and the chair was taken by the Right Worshipful the Mayor, who opened the business of the meeting at about half-past two o'clock, by reading the requisition in pursuance of which it had been convened. The meeting was then addressed by Mr. Went- worth, Mr. R. Cooper, sen., Dr. Bland, Captain O'Connell, Mr. J. R. Brenan, and Mr. Mac- dermott, the second of whom suggested (as a mode of remedying the existing evils) his old scheme of closing the courts of law, with the additional plan of establishing a committee in each district for the purpose of receiving a state- ment of the affairs of all persons w...
HUNTER RIVER DISTRICT NEWS. [FROM OUR CORRESPONDENTS.] CASSILIS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 13 May 1843
HUNTER RIVER DISTRICT NEWS. [FROM OUR CORRESPONDENTS.] CASSILIS. Upon the revisal of the electoral lists for this district, comprising part of the county of Bligh and part of the county of Brisbane, on Wednes- day last, the 3rd instant, there were only 24 registered voters, namely, 13 residing in the district, and 11 non-residents. There were neither claims or objections upon the revisal of the lists. Constable shot by a Bushranger.- On Saturday morning, May 6th, constable Rut- lidge was escorting three prisoners from Cassilis to Merton. He left Peberdy's inn in the morn- ing, and when he arrived at a station of Captain Pike's, five miles from Peberdy's, he entered the hut with the three men, leaving his gun outside. Two of the prisoners were handcuffed, and one loose ; the latter stepped out of the hut, and taking up the gun presented it at Rutlidge, de- manding his ammunition. The constable attempted to wrest the gun from the prisoner, and was shot dead by the bushranger, who imme...

REGISTRATION OF VOTERS. COUNTIES OF NORTHUMBERLAND AND DURHAM. Saturday, May 6. The court for the revision of the electoral lists for such parts of the counties of Northum- berland and Durham as are comprised within the police district of Maitland was opened on Saturday last, at the court house, East Maitland, before E. D. Day, Esq., chairman, with Captain Day and Captain Hungerford, assessors. Mr. MCurdy, the clerk of the bench, having been sworn to make true answers to all such questions as might be put to him touching the lists, presented to the chairman the list for the county of Northumberland, to which no objec- tions had been made, nor were there any claims. The list was therefore approved by the court. The clerk of the bench then presented the list for the county of Durham ; there were no objections to the original list, but there was a list of new claimants containing twenty-three names. Not an individual, however, out of the whole twenty-three, appeared in support of his c...

COMMERCIAL REMARKS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 13 May 1843
COMMERCIAL REMARKS. No alteration has taken place during the week either in the prices of grain or flour. In fact, business altogether has been extremely dull, which is probably owing in a great measure to the attention of all parties being fixed upon electioneering matters, in the revision of the electoral list for the boroughs. Business in Sydney during the week has also been very limited. The cargo of sugar, per Louisa, from Manila, was offered for sale by Mr. S. Lyons, and bought in at £17 per ton. Credit seems to have been completely shaken, and what little business is done is either for cash or on the barter system. Vegetables still continue cheap and plentiful in Maitland. The new maize is daily coming into market, at from 2s. 3d. to 2s. 6d. per bushel. The prices of bread, meat, dairy produce, and fuel, appear to be stationary.
