HUNTER RIVER DISTRICT NEWS. [FROM OUR CORRESPONDENTS.] NEWCASTLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 17 June 1843

HUNTER RIVER DISTRICT NEWS. [FROM OUR CORRESPONDENTS.] NEWCASTLE. THE ELECTION.-The arrival of A. W. Scott, Esq., and Major Wentworth, on Tuesday morn- ing, by the steamer from Sydney, appears to have revived, if not increased, the ardour and activity of the respective committees of those gentlemen. Newcastle has ever since been in a state of excitement which can only be exceeded by a favourable termination of the poll, to either party. Both parties here appear equally certain of the election terminating in favour of their own candidate. The gentlemen who on Tuesday accompanied Mr. Scott to Maitland have now returned, and are walking in procession through the town with a number of flags flying; they   appear to be quite confident of success. POLICE OFFICE.-On Friday last Mary Cle- ment, per the Sir Charles Forbes, was brought before the police bench, charged with gross insolence and disorderly conduct on the premises of Mr. Jackson, and having been convicted of these of...

Notice to Voters for the Northumberland Boroughs. EXTRACT from W. C. WENTWORTHS SPEECH at the Sydney Nomination_ Vide "Australian." "As a military man he must object to Captain O'connell. Gentlemen must be aware that the army was a school wherein habits of subordina- tion and subserviency -were taught, and these habits were difficult to throw off in questions where the free rights of citizens were con- cerned." Such are the sentiments of MAJOR WENT- WORTHS BROTHER! 473 To the Electors of the Northumberland Boroughs. M^i ENTLEMEN-On Tuesday next you will ^jq exercise a great privilege-you will choose the man who for the ensuing five years will have to represent you in the Assembly-to uphold your rights, to make known your wants. Gentlemen, the poet writes-" He best can paint them who shall feel them most." Would the Major feel the burden of taxes? Remember, he has little property in the colony -none in this district ; he lives on government money. Would Mr. Scott feel taxes ? Remembe...

THE ELECTION. PUBLIC ENTRY OF THE CANDIDATES FOR THE BOROUGHS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 17 June 1843

THE ELECTION. PUBLIC ENTRY OF THE CANDIDATES FOR THE BOROUGHS. It having been generally announced that the two candidates for the Northumberland Boroughs would make their public entry into Maitland on Tuesday last, the town was all alive at an early hour ; a number of flags of various descriptions were flying from different places in the town, and horsemen with green and blue rosettes were eagerly posting to the different places of rendezvous. It had been arranged that Mr, Scott was to come up in the steamer from Newcastle, and that his Maitland friends were to meet him at Morpeth. Accordingly on the arrival of the steamer a large number of gentlemen, both on horseback aud in gigs, were ready to receive Mr. Scott on his landing there. Mr. Scott was accompanied by a number of friends from Newcastle, and on the steamer (the Thistle) coming to the wharf, two guns were fired by her as a salute to Mr. Scott's Maitland supporters, and two more in honor of Mr. Scott. The procession having ...

THE MAITLAND MERCURY. SATURDAY, JUNE 17, 1843. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 17 June 1843

THE MAITLAND MERCURY, SATURDAY, JUNE 17, 1843. THE election of a representative for the   county of Northumberland took place on Thursday last. It was rumoured in the early part of the week that Mr. J. Brown, of Singleton, was to be put in nomination, in opposition to Mr. Foster. The report appears to have been without foundation;   for, on the returning officer inquiring if there was a second candidate to be pro- posed, no person came forward; and Mr.   Foster was therefore declared to be duly elected. We congratulate the electors upon their choice. Mr. Foster's talents, integrity, candour, and colonial experience admirably qualify him for the distinguished position to which he has been unanimously elected. On Monday last the candidates for the representation of the Northumberland Boroughs made their public entry into   Maitland. The friends of each candidate mustered in great force; and although the   proceedings par...

ENGLISH NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 17 June 1843

ENGLISH NEWS. We have collected the following brief summary of additional English news from the Sydney papers : Parliament was opened on the 4th February, by commission. Her Majesty's speech was read by the Lord Chancellor ; it was somewhat longer than usual, but the topics touched upon are such as are usually found in the speeches from the throne. There was very little opposition to the addresses, and no amendments were moved. Mr. Drummond, who was shot by the man M'Naughten on Friday, the 20th January, lingered until the following Wednesday morning, when he expired from the effects of the wound he had received. Despatches from the Governors of New South Wales and New Zealand were received in Downing-street on the 21st January. In the House of Lords Earl Stanhope moved for a committee to enquire into the condition of the labouring classes, but he had only three supporters. Trade was still improving, although very slowly.

COMMERCIAL REMARKS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 17 June 1843

COMMERCIAL REMARKS. There has been no stir in business during the week in Maitland, everything remaining in the same state as for some time past. The prices of most articles remain without alteration, though from what we have heard it appears that the price both of wheat and maize is likely to be still lower. Vegetables of all kinds are now plentiful, and good potatoes can be obtained in Maitland at 3s. 6d. per cwt. We believe some have been sold as low as 2s. 6d.

SYDNEY NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 17 June 1843

SYDNEY NEWS.   THE GOLD DUST SEIZURE.-The metallic bars and dust seized by the Custom house authorities on board the barque Nimrod, at Moore's Wharf, on Tuesday last, and supposed to contain a   large proportion of gold, turns out to have none of that precious material amongst it. It has been tested by Mr. J. J.Cohen and Dr. M'Kel lar, both of whom state that the main and   most valuable, ingredient in it is copper !     Australian.           A public meeting of the working classes was held in the school of Arts on Saturday evening, for the purpose of petitioning the Governor to remove all convicts from public works in Sydney, and also to withdraw all assigned servants from Sydney and its vicinity. A petition to this effect was adopted by the meeting.         It is rumoured in well informed circles, that...

SOUTH SEA ISLANDS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 17 June 1843

SOUTH SEA ISLANDS. Important news has reached Sydney from the South Sea Islands. We are indebted for the   following particulars to the Sydney Morning Herald of Monday last. The Queen of Tahiti had published two pro- clamations, declaring that any person guilty of treason, by attempting to do away with her sovereignty or to change the government, should suffer , death within twenty-four hours after   sentence, and all his land be confiscated ; and that no foreigner should occupy land without the Queen's consent. Great changes had also taken place in the Sandwich Islands. On the 11th February   H.M.S. Carysfort, Captain Lord George Paulet, arrived at Woahoo, in order to afford protection to British subjects, and to support the position of her Britannic Majesty's representative, who had received repeated insults from the govern- ment authorities of the Sandwich Islands.
