To tbe Independent Electors of tbe Borougbs of East and West Maitland and Newcastle. ^M ENTLEMEN-In presenting myself as a ^_PJ 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 districts, for improvement...

THE MAITLAND MERCURY. SATURDAY, MAY 20, 1843. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 20 May 1843

THE MAITLAND MERCURY. SATURDAY, MAY 20, 1843. IT cannot be too often impressed upon the colonists, and particularly upon those who are suffering most severely from the pres- sure of the times, that the causes which have produced the present crisis are of a temporary and transient nature, and that individual exertion and enterprise may contribute greatly towards effecting a gradual and permanent improvement in the circumstances of the colony. During our feverish excitement many of the more solid sources of individual and general prosperity were neglected, and capital and labour were directed to pursuits which held out a more immediate prospect of return. Indeed, in the circumstances in which we were then placed, such a course was to a great extent rendered necessary ; for in the high money value which was conferred upon nearly every commodity, labour included, it was almost impossible to compete to advantage in any branch of productive industry with older states. The capital which ou...

SUPREME COURT. CIVIL SIDE.—MONDAY, MAY 15. (Before his Honor the Chief Justice, with L. Myles and T. Barker, Esqrs.. assessors.) (From the Sydney Morning Herald.) [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 20 May 1843

SUPREME COURT. CIVIL SIDE. - MONDAY, MAY 15. (Before his Honor the Chief Justice, with L. Myles and T. Barker, Esqrs.. assessors.) (From the Sydney Morning Herald.) HUNT V. SOLOMON.-This was an action of trover, brought by Mr. Edward Hunt, an up- holsterer, against Mr. Solomon, the trustee of an insolvent estate, for the recovery of property seized by him. It appeared from the evidence for the plaintiff, that some time in July, 1841, Williams, a half brother of Mr. Hunt, carrying on business at Maitland, took the benefit of the old Insolvent Act, and was sold off under execution of the Sheriff. A nephew of the plaintiff was sent down to Maitland by him, and in pursuance of his instructions purchased a considerable portion of the property, which was afterwards delivered to Williams, who then removed to another residence taken for him by Mr. Hunt ; in this place he continued for about nine months and then removed to another house, near the Wesleyan Chapel, which had been furnished for...

DINNER OF MR. SCOTT'S FRIENDS AT NEWCASTLE. (From a Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 20 May 1843

DINNER OF MR. SCOTT'S FRIENDS AT NEWCASTLE. (From a Correspondent.) The beautiful little marine town of Newcastle presented a scene of considerable excitement on Wednesday last, in consequence of the friends of Mr. Scott having invited his Maitland com- mittee to a public dinner. Many of the houses were decorated with flags, and the streets pre- sented a busy aspect. Some of the Maitland friends arrived during the morning per steamer, and others in the course of the day on horseback or in vehicles of various kinds. About six o'clock in the evening upwards of seventy gentlemen sat down to dinner, the arrangements for which did infinite credit to mine host of the " Union," who had evidently spared neither time nor expense for the occasion. There was a profusion of good things on the table; the viands were of the first character,   and gave universal satisfaction to the company. The spacious room was tastefully decorated with evergreens and flowers, and over the chair, in ...

HUNTER RIVER DISTRICT NEWS. [FROM OUR CORRESPONDENTS.] RAYMOND TERRACE. BOAT STEALING.-We would advise the set- tlers on the Hunter and William Rivers to adopt the precaution of having chains and pad- locks on their boats, as a system of boat stealing appears to have been carried on to some extent on these rivers. Two boats from the Terrace have been stolen, and we hear that one or more is missing from Newcastle. NEW STORE.-We are glad to hear that Messrs. L. Potts & Co., of Maitland, are about to open a store at the Terrace on a large scale. This has been long required, and will be a great acquisition to the town and district ; and we sincerely trust the spirited proprietors may not be disappointed in their expectations. NEWCASTLE. STATE OF THE GAOL.-The following was the state of H. M. gaol, on Wednesday, May 17th :- For trial, males 35, females 3; remanded, female 1; for other stations, males 5; under sentence to an ironed gang, male 1 ; under sentence to hard labour, mal...

SYDNEY NEWS. (FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT.) Thursday Evening. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 20 May 1843

SYDNEY NEWS. (FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT.) Thursday Evening. Sydney is at present in a state of provoking dulness ; as the courts of registration have got through the whole of their business, even that brief cause of excitement is over. The late assessment of city property appears to have been taken very carelessly, as an im- mense number of objections have been entered with the town clerk by the citizens, and the city council will commence its sittings on Monday next as a court of appeal to decide upon these objections. I am not aware of the precise number of objections which have been made, but I understand they are sufficient to require at least seven days for their consideration. I am sorry to say there has been a great number of insolvencies lately, the majority of which has been for large amounts. If rumour may be credited, many days will not pass over without several more being added to the list, including, it is said, some of the most important mercantile houses. The candidates ...

To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 20 May 1843

To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. GENTLEMEN-As public journalists you will agree with me that impartiality ought to be the characteristic feature in all magistrates, in regis- tering votes, or revising claims, as well as in any other business, whatever their private opinion may be. Now, the court at Paterson for the revision of claims was appointed to be held on Tuesday, the 9th instant, when there was a goodly attendance ; but as Mr. Boydell was the only magistrate in attendance to assist Major Johnstone, it was publicly announced that the court was adjourned till the following Monday, and those who were waiting dispersed. It was afterwards discovered that Monday was too long a postponement, and Saturday was fixed upon by Mr. Boydell and Major Johnstone. This was all very well, but the funny part of it is, that only Mr. Windeyer's supporters knew of it; none of Mr. Lang's or Mr. Ogilvie's heard a word of it ; and the consequence was that Mr. Windeyer's friends appeared on Sat...

To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. GENTLEMEN-I would feel much obliged if you would contradict through the columns of your useful journal a report that has been indus- triously circulated in Maitland, attributing to me the authorship of the article in the Herald, reflecting upon the revision court of this place. I distinctly deny any knowledge of that article, until reading it, in common with others, in print. -I am, gentlemen, your obedient servant, H. TURNER HARRINGTON. Maitland, May 19,1843.

SPORTING INTELLIGENCE. PATRICK'S PLAINS RACES. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 20 May 1843

SPORTING INTELLIGENCE. PATRICK'S PLAINS RACES. These races began on Wednesday last, the 17th instant. The weather during the whole of the time was extremely fine ; and there was a strong muster of sportsmen from the neighbouring districts. The following is the result of the races as far as we could ascertain up to a late hour last night : Patrick's Plains Purse of £50, for horses of all ages ; heats two miles. Mr. Baldwin's Harry Lorrequer .. 1 1 Mr. Haydon's Young Dover. 3 2 Mr. S. Jenner's Grenadier. 2 3 Mr. Reeves's Tranby... 4 4 The race was finely run by the first three, though won comparatively easy by Harry. Young Dover carried 171bs. too much weight the first heat, or it might have been different, as although it was reduced for the second 10lbs. he suffered from the first attempt. The Ladies' Purse of £30, for two-year-old horses ; heats one mile. Mr. Wilkinson's Matilda. 1 Mr. Cohen's Adelaide. 2 Won easy by Matilda. The Trial Stakes of £15, with entrance money added ; heat...

COMMERCIAL REMARKS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 20 May 1843

COMMERCIAL REMARKS. Scarcely any business has been transacted in Maitland during the past week. This is owing probably to more causes than one ; for besides the general embarrassment of monetary affairs all over the colony, and by which all are alike affected, the small amount of business done in this district during the last week or two may be ascribed in some measure to the farmers being busily engaged in ploughing and wheat sowing. Upon the whole we do not hear of any greater depression than may be naturally expected, and all kind of articles in the market appear to maintain their prices. No purchases are made, however, except to supply immediate wants. In Sydney the markets appear to be extremely dull, and the exports are said to be unusually small. The demand for wheat, however, has been somewhat on the increase, and there has been in consequence a slight advance in the price. The recent importations from Launceston have been readily purchased, at from 5s. to 5s. 11d. per bushe...

ELECTION MEETING.—WOLLOMBI. (From a Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 20 May 1843

ELECTION MEETING.-WOLLOMBI. (From a Correspondent.) A meeting of the inhabitants of the town and police electoral district of Wollombi took place at the Governor Gipps Hotel, of that town, on Tuesday, the 9th instant, to testify the most zealous solicitude that has ever demonstrated itself in au assemblage of colonial citizens, for securing the election of William Foster, Esq., to the ensuing elective assembly of New South Wales. On the intimation of that gentleman's approach, this Abyssynian locality presented a pageant truly characteristic of that ebullition which the human heart-that Etna of the moral man-discovers in the redundancy of its affec- tions, its patriotism, and philanthrophy. The season was particularly in unison with the hilarity of animated nature, and the neighbouring am- phitheatre lent its balmy and breathing influence in unfolding various banners to the view bearing the magic inscription " Foster for ever." A cavalcade, consisting of probably one hundred, preced...

To tlxe Independent Electors of the Northumberland Boroughs. ENTLEMEN-It having been intimated _ 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 lo 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 consistent wi...
