TO CORRESPONDENTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 21 January 1843

TO CORRESPONDENTS. The lines on the "King of the Cannibal Islands" are good, but we cannot insert them. We have determined to abstain during the election from inserting communications of a   purely personal character.   "AN OLD HAND."— "AMERICANENSIS."— We are very reluctantly compelled to omit the communications of the above correspondents for want of space. Mr. James Piper has been appointed agent for the Maitland Mercury at Cassilis; and all communications, orders, &c, forwarded to him will be attended to.

THE MAITLAND MERCURY. SATURDAY, JANUARY 21, 1843. MR. MANNING. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 21 January 1843

THE MAITLAND MERCURY. SATURDAY, JANUARY 21, 1843. MR. MANNING. Intelligence was received in Maitland on Thursday that this gentleman had declined to contest the representation of the Northumber- land boroughs; and those of the electors who   had expressed their intention of supporting him have now come forward in favour of Major Wentworth and Mr. Scott, between whom there can be no doubt the election will be very warmly contested. THE MEETING OF TUESDAY NEXT. The public meeting to be held on Tuesday next will, we apprehend, resolve itself into a meeting of the electors of the Northumberland boroughs : this, in fact, is the only legitimate character it can assume. An opportunity will thus be afforded to the candidates for the representation of these boroughs of giving an explicit and detailed exposition of their views upon the - principal subjects which are likely to engage the attention of the new Legislative Council ; for although two out of the three candidates now in...

ELECTORAL DISTRICTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 21 January 1843

ELECTORAL DISTRICTS. Below we present our readers with a statistical account of the population of each county and town in the colony, which, according to the bill to be laid before the Legislative Council, will be entitled to send representatives to the new Council, at the ensuing election ; and also of the number of representatives each will return. The table has been compiled from the census taken in the year 1841, as published by the authority of government, and may not prove uninteresting to many of our readers. There has of course, since that time, been a considerable increase of the popu- lation, particularly in the districts of Port Phillip and Moreton Bay. the county of Cumberland, and the city of Sydney,   chiefly caused by the rapid influx of immigrants during the year 1841 and the early part of 184a ; but still the census gives sufficient data for parties to form a judgment as to the fairness with which the principle of proportioning representation to populat...

BIG RIVER. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 21 January 1843

BIG RIVER. We have been kindly favored by a gentleman of this neighbourhood with the following letter from a resident on the Big .River, which we have no doubt will be read with 'great interest by many of our readers. Reedy Creek, December 29, 1842. Sir-From the interest you took In the affairs of the bush when I was at Maitland, and your readiness to exert yourself when called upon, perhaps some information relative to this part of the country may not prove uninteresting. During my residence at Maitland I declared, on more than one occasion, my opinion that the blacks, from the little opposition they found from government, would become more bold and determined : I regret to say every day's ex- perience is confirming the correctness of that opinion. I have to add another victim to the violence of the blacks, and the absurd notions and measures of the government, in Mr. Beddington's stockman, who was riding down his run, in company with another man, and when within about three miles ...

EXPORTATION OF SALT PROVISIONS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 21 January 1843

EXPORTATION OF SALT PRO- VISIONS. We would briefly direct the attention of our readers to the important question of the exportation to England of salt provi- sions, which is now engrossing the attention of the stockholders of the colony. The facilities which this colony presents for carrying on the exportation of salt beef upon a very extensive scale cannot be at present, perhaps, properly estimated, as the matter has so recently been brought under public notice that information respecting it is not at present very accurate or ample. À numerous meeting of some of the most respectable stockholders of the colony was held upon this subject at the Royal Hotel on the 4th instant, at which R. Scott, Esq., of Glendon, presided. The Sydney papers inform us that several excellent speeches were delivered, in which " the advantages which would accrue to the colony from the exportation of this article, and the cer- tainty of finding a good market in the mother Country, were fully set forth ;" b...

SYDNEY NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 21 January 1843

SYDNEY NEWS. His Excellency the Governor, attended by a number of the government officers, went on board her Majesty's frigate the Vindictive on Friday last. A salute of seventeen guns was fired, the yards were manned, and after the sailors and marines had gone through their exercises, his Ex- cellency and party lunched on board. After having remained on board for about two hours tney returned on shore, when another salute of seventeen guns was fired. Two constables were escorting two prisoners of the crown from Queanbeyan   to Goulburn, and on Thursday night week stopped at Mr. Dwyer's inn in Bungen- dore, where the constables very impru- dently took the irons off the men, and agreed to watch by turns. At one time, both the constables being inclined for sleep, one of the prisoners seized the carbine belonging to the constable whose turn it was to watch, and shot him through the breast, wounding him so dreadfully that he died almost immediately. He was seized instantly,...

To tbe Independent Electors of the Northumberland Boroughs. GENTLEMEN-At the time when I was   induced to offer myself for the Repre-   sentation of your boroughs, no candidate more immediately connected with them had come forward. Since then several gentlemen in the enjoyment of more leisure than myself having offered themselves, I am induced to retire from a contest which would require more time and attention, during the many months of its pro- bable duration, than I am free to devote to it, although the numerous promises of support with which you have favoured me have warranted the most sanguine prospect of success. I have to offer my warm acknowledgments to the many proprietors and householders who have flattered me with their confidence, and especially to the gentlemen who have so zealously exerted themselves as a committee to secure my return ; and although the very numerous promises of support which I have received have even in- creased my confidence...

Notice. The Shippers of WOOL on the Hunter are reminded that the DUKE OF MANCHESTER is now loading at Newcastle. In adition to the wool taken on board at Port Stephens, and that waiting for her in Sydney, she has not room for more than three hundred bales. As it is probable that no other vessel will call for wool at Newcastle this season, it is requested that no time may be lost in sending wool intended for shipment by her. Every care will be taken of the wool, which will either be taken off the wharf or stored in the Company's stores, as may be necessary. Newcastle, January 10,1843. 60 To the Independent Electors of the Boroughs of East and West Maitland and Newcastle. GENTLEMEN-In presenting myself as a     Candidate for the honour of your sup-   port at the approaching Election, I consider it proper to give you an outline of my principles.

THE MAITLAND MERCURY. SATURDAY, JANUARY 28, 1843. THE MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 28 January 1843

THE MAITLAND MERCURY, SATURDAY, JANUARY 28, 1843. THE MEETING. The meeting of Tuesday last passed off without   producing any important effect on our elec- tioneering affairs. Of the three candidates for the boroughs Captain Biddulph was the only one who was present. That gentleman stated that he had attended for the purpose of ex- plaining to those whose suffrages he sought his opinions upon the leading questions of the day. He avowed himself a supporter of the Church Act, a friend to the extension of the suffrage, and an opponent [though a laughably incon- sistent one] of Coolie immigration ; and pledged himself to use every exertion to forward the interests of the boroughs. Captain Biddulph's exposition of his opinions was a very frank and straightforward one; we should, however, en- tertain a much higher idea of his independence if it had been a little less offensively and coarsely thrust forward. His conduct on the Coolie question, when taken in connection with the...

NAMOI RIVER. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 28 January 1843

NAMOI RIVER. We have been kindly favoured with the following extract of a letter from Mr. B. Doyle, of the Namoi, to his father, C. M. Doyle, Esq., dated January 19th : - " We arrived here perfectly safe, and had the pleasure of finding the country looking much better than I expected. Nurraby and all around us presents a beautiful appearance. Our cattle and sheep are doing very well indeed, having abundance of grass and water; you may consequently expect a goodly number of fat cattle shortly ; indeed I wish much that we had not removed any part of our stock, and particularly not to the Mooney, which you are aware is at least 240 miles beyond this. I regret to say that Bolin, your principal stockman at the Mooney, arrived here yesterday with the unwelcome news that the blacks on the 2nd instant had taken three horses from the hut ~ where they were fastened, killed them, and let our cattle on the station (amounting to 500 head) out of the yards, and driven them away. Bolin says he has...
