OUR NEW EXPORT. (From the Sydney Morning Herald.) [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 24 June 1843
OUR NEW EXPORT. (From the Sydney Morning Herald.) Our amusing correspondent Robin Good- fellow, in one of his interesting, but sadly fal- lacious, letters upon agriculture, remarks upon the tendency of the people of this colony to fly off upon every new scheme that presents itself. At one time all the energies of the colony have been devoted to the cultivation of tobacco, at another time to the growth of maize, then to the production of fine wool, lately to salting beef, and now, he might say, to boiling down sheep for their tallow : for although it is little more than a month since we first drew the attention of the public to the subject, go into what society you may, " their talk is of tallow." The discovery, for so it may be called, that fat sheep contain tallow, although but a few weeks old, has had the most beneficial effect upon the interests of the graziers : sheep that were in April and the beginning of May unsaleable, are now worth from five to eight shillings each; and bel...

THE MAITLAND MERCURY. SATURDAY, JUNE 24, 1843. THE NORTHUMBERLAND BOROUGHS ELECTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 24 June 1843
THE MAITLAND MERCURY. SATURDAY, JUNE 24, 1843. THE NORTHUMBERLAND BOROUGHS ELECTION. THE contest for the representation of these boroughs in the Legislative Council has now been fairly brought to an end in the election of Major Wentworth, by a majority of thirteen ; and we cannot let it pass over without expressing our warm admiration of the manner in which it has been conducted. The contest has been a long and arduous one ; and we feel it due to the inhabitants of the boroughs to say, that their peaceful conduct throughout the exciting proceedings of the last few days, has not resulted from the absence of strong party feeling, but from the influence of self respect and sound judgment; and we trust that those little private differences which may have occurred amongst them, and which are inseparable from a contested election, will, now that the contest is over, be speedily healed up, and things once more resume their natural course. Too much praise cannot be given to our excellent po...
THE ELECTION. NOMINATION OF THE CANDIDATES FOR DURHAM. (From our correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 24 June 1843
THE ELECTION. NOMINATION OF THE CANDIDATES FOR DURHAM. (From our correspondent.) Wednesday last was the day appointed for the nomination of the candidates for the representa- tion of the county of Durham in the Legislative Council of the colony. At twelve o'clock, the candidates, surrounded by their respective friends, took their places on the hustings which had been erected for their accommodation. Major JOHNSTONE, the Returning Officer, opened the proceedings by saying that this was the day appointed for the nomination of the candidates for the county of Durham. He believed they were all acquainted with the political sentiments of each candidate, and he was sorry that they could not elect them all, as they were all men of ability. He felt sure the electors would choose one the best qualified to represent them. He had only to recommend to them peace and good order. He had not sworn in any extra constables, as he was confident that they would not be required. He would now cause the ...
HUNTER RIVER DISTRICT NEWS. [FROM OUR CORRESPONDENTS.] NEWCASTLE. THE ELECTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 24 June 1843
HUNTER RIVER DISTRICT NEWS. [FROM OUR CORRESPONDENTS.] NEWCASTLE. THE ELECTION. On Tuesday last, the day appointed for the return of a member for this district, the town was thronged at an early hour by a numerous assemblage of persons, and long before nine o'clock the environs of the court-house were crowded. The banners of the respective can- didates (many of which were very tasteful) were numerously displayed, and on the whole the town presented a more lively appearance during the whole of the day than has been known on any previous occasion, political or otherwise. The business of the day commenced at nine o'clock precisely, and the polling was kept up with great spirit until ten o'clock, when all the voters excepting two had given in their votes, and the state of the poll (although not declared by the deputy returning officer) was generally reported to be as follows :-Scott 60, Wentworth 10. The court then adjourned, as no more voters appeared to poll, and the people then proce...
SYDNEY NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 24 June 1843
SYDNEY NEWS. CITY ELECTION.-On Monday, the day ap- pointed by the Right Worshipful the Mayor for declaring the state of the poll, a large concourse of people assembled during the morning in front of the polling place for Bourke Ward in Macquarie-place. About twelve o'clock Mr. Wentworth and Dr. Bland appeared on the hustings, and were shortly afterwards followed by the Mayor, who announced the state of the poll, and declared Messrs. Wentworth and Bland to be duly elected. Mr. Wentworth then ad- dressed the meeting at some length, thanking the electors for the honor they had conferred upon him in placing him at the head of the poll. He animadverted at great length on the riotous behaviour of the mob on the day of election, and blamed the authorities for the apathy with which they had looked on these outrages. He concluded by expressing his firm conviction that the measures introduced into the council would be of a tendency to renew confidence, restore credit, and increase the prosper...
COMMERCIAL REMARKS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 24 June 1843
COMMERCIAL REMARKS. We have again to record that business is ex- tremely dull, there having been no sales of any amount effected by any of the storekeepers for several weeks past. The prices of every thing remain almost stationary, though grain of all kinds appears to have a tendency downwards. Bread, meat, and vegetables are without any alteration, as is also flour; though we under- stand the cargo of Valparaiso flour lately im- ported, ex Jeremiah Garnet, was sold in Sydney a day or two ago for £9 a ton. The average price of maize in Maitland may now be quoted at about 2s. a bushel ; some good samples having been sold at 1s 9d, and one or two samples of very fine maize having lately realized 2s 3d. ; the general price seems to be 1s 11d or 2s, inferior samples of course bringing still less. It is expected that an advance will shortly take place in the price of maize, as a considerable quantity has lately been shipped for Hobart Town. Tea is selling at from £5 5s to £5 10s a chest ...

THE ELECTION. ELECTION FOR THE NORTHUMBERLAND BOROUGHS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 24 June 1843
THE ELECTION. ELECTION FOR THE NORTHUMBER- &nbsp; LAND BOROUGHS. Tuesday last was the day fixed upon for the election of a member of the Legislative Council for the Northumberland boroughs. At an early hour the inhabitants of East and West Maitland began to be in motion; the day was beautifully fine; many of the &nbsp; shops were closed; and everything wore &nbsp; the appearance of a general holiday. The principal polling place was the court house, East Maitland, where the polling commenced at nine o'clock, and was carried on with considerable spirit for about two hours, after wrhich the polling was very slack during the remainder of the day. In West Maitland the polling place was the large stone building next to Potts and Co.'s stores, generally known as Russell's butcher's shop, which had been fitted up for the occasion, and this was throughout the whole day the principal point of attraction, and here the hottest part of the contest was carried on. A large ...

And in order to remind such subscribers both of the close of the quarter, and, of our intention to discontinue sendingjthem the paper until they have paid up, ^«System we shall strictly adhere to,) the three last numbers of the Mercury which will be forwarded them will be in green en- velopes. 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.
