We shall feel obliged to any of our subscribers in the country who may have paid their respective accounts to our agents, and who may receive papers so enveloped, if they would be kind enough to write to us immediately, and inform us to whom they have paid them. We have also to request those of our agents who have not yet forwarded...

COMMERCIAL REMARKS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 10 June 1843

COMMERCIAL REMARKS. Owing, probably, to the races, business has been this week unusually flat in Maitland, and the prices of nearly all articles remain much the same, as will be seen by a reference to our price current. In the price of wheat there is no difference whatever; maize is if anything a shade lower; the highest' price now given in Sydney for the very best samples of maize, according to a letter which we yesterday saw from thence, is 2s Gd per bushel, and the writer thinks that in a very little time it will even be lower. The price of meat has come down again even lower than before the recent rise, and beef and mutton are now selling by most of the butchers at l$d per lb. Butter is also something cheaper; several parties have offered it as low as 8d per lb., and others at lOd, but we believe the average price is about Is. A large quantity of soap, manufactured at Mr. Cox's new works, has this week been brought into the market. Two of the great shipowners of London have retu...

To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 10 June 1843

To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. GENTLEMEN-In the present depressed state of the colony the press naturally teems with letters proposing a variety of plans for raising it, not only to its former prosperity, but to a prosperity founded upon a surer basis. Among all the schemes proposed not one seems to me to meet all that is necessary. I therefore beg to submit to your readers one which has frequently struck me as being not only capable of being carried out, but one which would tend in a great measure to do away with many of the obstacles which now stand in the way both of our graziers and merchants. I feel satisfied that when brought into operation that we could not only have good roads, and much greater facilities of transport throughout the interior, than we at present possess, but that we should gain a great increase both of population and wealth-an increase of coasting trade-and the expenses of the stockholder would be not only diminished, but the condition of himself and...

SYDNEY NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 10 June 1843

SYDNEY NEWS. EMANCIPISTS.-The Herald of Wednesday last, after extracting the article under the above head furnished us by a correspondent, and which appeared in the last number of the Mercury, makes the following observations upon it: "The above paragraph appears in the last number of the Maitland Mercury as from a correspondent, and we must express both sur- prise and regret at seeing that such a meeting has been held. We believe we are stating the sentiments of ninety-nine men out of a hundred, whose opinions are worth anything, when we say that it is for the interest of the colony that there should be no distinction made between the emancipist and other classes of society; the 'law makes no difference, and the gentry of the colony wish to make no difference. We do not know who the parties are who have acted with such indecency at Maitland, as to wish, as a body, to make terms with a candidate on which they will give him their support ; but we are happy to believe that those perso...

THE MAITLAND MERCURY. SATURDAY, JUNE 10, 1843. THE ELECTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 10 June 1843

THE MAITLAND MERCURY SATURDAY, JUNE 10, 1843. THE ELECTION. ALTHOUGH the time for the election is now rapidly approaching, all the elections in the Hunter River district being fixed to take place within a fortnight from to-day, the parties on either side throughout the whole district appear to be particularly quiet. We have not heard of any meet- ings or other demonstrations of preparation for the coming contest, though it is certain that in each instance, except for the county of Northumberland, the representation will be warmly contested. We perceive, by the Colonial Observer of Wednesday last, that Messrs. R. Windeyer and A. Lang left Sydney by the Thistle steamer on Monday evening, in order to be in readiness to meet the electors. As several of the nominations will take place during the ensuing week, active preparations may be expected to commence immediately. Election matters have been very dull in the boroughs during the week, probably owing to the races, which have engaged th...

MAITLAND RACES. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 10 June 1843

MAITLAND RACES. These races came off on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday last. The course was in excellent condition, and the sports were altogether of a high character. It is generally admitted that the racing -Tvas ^ery superior to any that had ever before been witnessed on the Maitland course, and quite equal to any that ever took places in jthe, colony. The weathervwas highly favourable. It has been calculated that on the first day there could not have been far short of 3000 people on the course ; and it is thought that .there were upwards of 2000 each of the following days. There were from twelve to fourteen booths, besides a number of gingerbread stalls, &c, all of which seemed to do a fair amount of business, and everything went off with the greatest order and regularity. The only thing with which much fault could be found was the manner in which people crossed the course, not only after the jockeys were mounted and ready to start, but even while the horses were runni...

To tne Independent Electors of tne Northumberland Boroughs. GENTLEMEN-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 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...

HUNTER RIVER DISTRICT NEWS. [FROM OUR CORRESPONDENTS.] WOLLOMBI. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 10 June 1843

HUNTER RIVER DISTRICT NEWS. [FROM OUR CORRESPONDENTS.] WOLLOMBI. The locale of the Stockyard Creek, in this district, hitherto known as the abode "where health and plenty cheered the labouring swain," presented the traveller on Friday last with a feminine exhibition of physical prowess which the pugilistic amateur is rarely greeted with. A young and interesting landscape of Australia's mild narth-the proprietress of a valuable allotment of land abutting the possessions of a fragment from the " first gem of the earth and flower of the sea"-reckless of the adage that " the longest way round is the shortest way home," pursued the even tenor of her way along an old but newly-proscribed path through the latter's occupancy ; carolling, as she sped, the popular ditty of "The Bush of Australia," which, being interpreted, meant hostility. On the part of Erin the assault was commenced by a shower of corn cobs, whose whizzing gyrations threatened early annihilation to fair Australia, but fate ...

THE TENANT SYSTEM. To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 10 June 1843

THE TENANT SYSTEM. To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. GENTLEMEN-I was much pleased with your leading article of last week, and I have with regret learned that a system has lately sprung up of letting off small portions of ground, not at a yearly rental, but on condition of receiving half the produce; this will do more towards keeping the system of farming in its present low state than even a high money rent, for it is not likely any one would lay out capital in manuring, &c, when the increase so produced was to be halved between himself and the person who merely found the raw material, viz. the ground. It was this very reason which led to the act for the commutation of tithes in England, and if the system of taking a tenth in kind was so objectionable, what must it be when one-half is swept off? -I remain, &c., A CONSTANT READER.

SYDNEY NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 10 June 1843

SYDNEY NEWS. Mr. Alexander M'Leay is to address the elec- tors of the district of Gloucester, Stanley, and Macquarie at Gloucester, on the 12th instant, and to proceed thence to Port Macquarie, where he intends to remain till the day of election. An addition has been made to the wooden Episcopal church in the old burial ground, George-street, so that it will accommodate eight hundred persons. The whole of the seats are free. On Friday last Mr. Thomas Lord, late manager of the Sydney Bank, appeared at the police office on a charge of perjury preferred against him by Messrs. Miller, Innis, and Wallace. The charge was grounded on the fact of Mr. Lord having on the 26th April last furnished to the directors of the Sydney Bank a statement on oath purporting to give a full account of the monetary affairs of that establishment, which statement was afterwards discovered to be untrue. A considerable number of witnesses were examined, and the arguments of Mr. Windeyer for the prosecution and ...

To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 10 June 1843

To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. GENTLEMEN-Many of your unsophisticated readers in this quarter, although possessing strong perceptive powers of discrimination, are frequently staggered at the results of police cases, which, like simpletons as they are, they think should always terminate in accordance with their own rude standard of common sense; when at the same time the magistrate has per- haps weighed them to a hair in the legal balance, and, being deeply versed in Plunkett's Guide, has arrived at the most proper con- clusion. Yet many of these dissatisfied beings will profanely say, when his worship's decisions happen to run counter with their own opinions, that he is under the guidance of a far more cunning personage than Mr. Plunkett. One of those police cases which as usual seems inexplicable to our wiseacres has recently been disposed of in that prompt off-hand manner by our magistrate, which, in my opinion and in that of the constables (no mean authority, you will al...

COLONIAL INTELLIGENCE. PORT PHILLIP. About twenty Coolies, who had been brought from India bp Major Davidson, have been set to work to level and mend Collins-street. They appeared in good spirits, and worked merrily with the pickaxe and shovel. ABORIGINAL MANUFACTURES. - At Mr. Thorpe's, the tailor and draper of Collins-street, may be seen a variety of plait work by the aborigines under the charge of Mr. Parker, the Protector ; the various articles consist of baskets and covers, hats, table mats, &c, which are not only well, but in many instances taste- fully made, especially the baskets, which exhibit both in design and execution considerable taste. The material from which these various articles are manufactured is a species of stout grass, flexible and peculiarly adapted for such purposes. The articles are intended for sale, the proceeds to be appropriated to purchase clothes for the natives.-P. P. Patriot. The first civic banquet was given by the Mayor of Melbourne, at th...
