THE ELECTION. BOROUGH OF MELBOURNE. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 8 July 1843

THE ELECTION. BOROUGH OF MELBOURNE. The election for the borough of Mel- bourne took place on Saturday, June 17th. The polling commenced at nine o'clock precisely in all the four wards. During the day the greatest excitement prevailed throughout the town, each party endea- vouring by the most energetic measures to carry off the election in favour of their particular candidate. Late in the day, when it became apparent that Mr. Curr was so far behind as to render all proba- bility of success hopeless, several of the voters on both sides were intimidated and threatened before polling, and openly insulted afterwards. It was understood that the final state of the poll would be declared in the open space in front of the Mechanics' Institute, to which place a large assemblage of people repaired, and attempted to enter the building, but this was prevented. A sharp conflict, however, took place between the populace and a party of special constables, but nothing serious occurred. Soon after t...

BRITISH EXTRACTS. HOUSE OF COMMONS.—FRIDAY, FEB. 3. CORN LAWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 8 July 1843

BRITISH EXTRACTS. HOUSE OF COMMONS.-FRIDAY, FEB. 3. CORN LAWS.       On the motion of Mr. HAWES, returns were ordered, in continuation of those previously made, of the quantities of corn and sugar imported in certain periods. Lord COURTENAY brought up the report upon the address in answer to the speech from the throne. On the question that the report be read, Mr. WALTER was anxious to make a few remarks, although he feared they would be received unfavorably on his side of the house. No one could deny that the foreign relations of the country were most satisfactory, but painful experience showed that this was but a poor antidote for distress at home. This distress had arisen from various causes, but chiefly from one which had agitated the country for half a century : he meant the corn laws. He had been the representative of an agricultural and a manufacturing con- stituency, and his opinions had been changed as to the expediency of substituting ...

THE MAITLAND MERCURY. SATURDAY, JULY 8, 1843. THE NEW COUNCIL. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 8 July 1843

THE MAITLAND MERCURY SATURDAY, JULY 8, 1843.     THE NEW COUNCIL. THE first act under the new constitution is brought to a close. The electors have performed their part in the drama; and public expectation is now turned anxiously to the first scenes in the new council chamber. The elections generally have been conducted in a manner which affords the best answer that could be given to the doubts that were so generally expressed at home of our fitness to be entrusted with even a very limited measure of self go- vernment. There certainly have been two or three exceptions to this creditable con- duct, and it reflects but little honor on the two principal towns in the colony that they should have earned a bad pre-eminence in this respect. But even making ample allowance for these drawbacks, we have no hesitation in saying that the elections, on the whole, have been characterised by a fairness of spirit, and an observance of the laws, which fully places the colon...

THE REV. G. K. RUSDEN'S SERMON. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 8 July 1843

THE REV. G. K. RUSDEN'S SERMON. The following documents have been sent to us for publication. We feel extremely reluctant to give insertion to anything which may have a tendency to revive the party spirit elicited by the late election, but as the charges contained in Major Wentworth's speech against the Rev. Mr. Rusden obtained publicity through the columns of the Mercury, we are bound in justice to the rev. gentleman to afford his friends the same medium of vindicating him from those imputa- tions. " To the Rev. G. K. Rusden. " REVEREND SIR-We, your parishioners, beg to condole with you on the untoward events which have led to unjust imputations on your clerical character. We allude to a sermon preached by you in the East Maitland Church some time since, before the late elections for the members of the representative assembly of this colony. " We beg leave to assure you we regarded that sermon as a pastoral exhortation to us to use sound discretion in our choice, and without refere...

CONSECRATION AND CONFIRMATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 8 July 1843

CONSECRATION AND CONFIRMATION. Immediately after the consecration of St. Peter's church on Thursday morning, June 20th, the Lord Bishop of Australia proceeded to the consecration of the Episcopalian burial ground at East Maitland, which is situated about three quarters of a mile from the church, at the extremity of the glebe. A tent was erected on the ground, in which the services were performed, and the same clergymen who had attended at the consecration of the church were in attand ance, the Rev. J. J. Smith acting as chancellor. The number of persons who were confirmed in St. Peter's church on Friday morning were sixty, and not as was stated in our last, between forty and fifty. On Saturday morning a confirmation was held in St. Mary's church, West Maitland, at which forty-one persons, principally about the ages of fourteen and sixteen years, were con- firmed ; of these thirty-six were from the district of Maitland, and the rest from the districts of the Rev. Mr. Bolton, of Hexha...

ST. JOHN'S TOTAL ABSTINENCE SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 8 July 1843

ST. JOHN'S TOTAL ABSTINENCE SOCIETY. On Monday last the members of the above society, and their friends, to the number of about 450, sat down to tea in a large store in the rear of the building known "as Russell's butcher's shop, West Maitland. The room was most elegantly fitted up with flowers, ever- greens, and a variety of appropriate devices, under the management of Mr. John Connor, painter. A raised platform under a canopy was erected at either end of the room for the presi- dent and vice-president, and four tables were arranged the whole length of the room. A band was in attendance, which during the night played many appropriate airs. When tea was over the Rev. Mr. Lynch, the president of the society, was called to the chair ; and the vice chair was occupied by Mr. J. J. Harpur, of Jerry's Plains, who along with several other friends from Singleton had come down for the purpose of being present at the meeting. The Rev. CHAIRMAN said it was with feelings of great pleasure that ...

HUNTER RIVER DISTRICT NEWS. [FROM OUR CORRESPONDENTS.] DUNGOG. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 8 July 1843

HUNTER RIVER DISTRICT NEWS [FROM OUR CORRESPONDENTS.] DUNGOG. CAPTURE OF A BUSHRANGER. - On Sunday last one of the Australian Agricultural Com- pany's sheep watchmen was stopped on the road near the washpool by an armed bushranger, and stripped of nearly all his clothes. No trace could be obtained of the thief until Tuesday, when he again made his appearance, and bailed up the postman who comes from Raymond Terrace to Stroud, and stripped him in like manner, and also took his money and horse. All pursuit was made immediately that possibly could be, but to no effect. The constables were on the look out all night, and about daylight next morning constable John Tipping, attached to the Dungog police, succeeded in capturing the villian, who turns out to be a runaway from the Newcastle irongang. He was armed with a fowling piece and a pistol. Report says, that there are two more armed and mounted bush- rangers committing depredations in this vicinity, but it is to be hoped they will not ...

THE ELECTION. CUMBERLAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 8 July 1843

THE ELECTION. CUMBERLAND. The polling lor the county of Cumberland took place on Monday last, July 3rd, and ended in the return of Mr. Charles Cowper and Mr. Lawson. Popular feeling seemed to be strongly exhibited in favor of Mr. Cowper in Sydney from an early hour, and by ten o'clock his friends felt certain of placing him at the head of the poll. Every thing appears to have passed off very quietly ; in Sydney the greatest good humour prevailed. The police arrangements were well organised, in case any outbreak had occurred, but happily nothing of the kind ap- peared. The result of the poll was as follows : Cowper Lawson         Macathur         Nichols Brennan       Sydney . 215 103 125 144 68 St. Leonard's. 50 12 22 26 16 Parramatta. 35 148 122 39 17 Liverpool . 18 10 18 18 3 Windsor. 71 41 12 70 21 Penrith . 60 57 5 9 1 Campbelltown - 53 9...

COMMERCIAL REMARKS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 8 July 1843

COMMERCIAL REMARKS. Things remain much in the same state as at our last, though some slight indications of an improvement in business may be perceived; money however appears to be extremely scarce. Some good samples of colonial tobacco have been brought into the market during the week by one or two of the small settlers in the district, though we believe no sales of any extent were effected. We have not heard of any alteration either in the prices of grain or stock. Dairy produce is very plentiful, and consequently cheap. Some of our storekeepers have during the week received large consignments of various descriptions of merchandise ; and a quantity of colonial tweeds of a very good description from the new manufactory at Stockton has been brought into the market by Messrs. Potts and Co. On Saturday last the butchers, both in East and West Maitland, raised the price of meat from 1½ to 3d, per lb. The reason assigned for this step was that it might perhaps induce the stock- holders t...

SYDNEY NEWS. THE ATTORNEY GENERAL.-Mr. Plun- kett and family have taken their passage in the early part of March. The Rev. Dr. Cowper and family come by the same vessel, so that they may be daily expected.

THE ELECTION RIOT.-On Friday, the 30th June, Mr. John Jones, city coun- cillor, was committed to take his trial on a charge of cutting and maiming John Wholanan, on the 15th June last, the day of the election.

This amount, together with upwards of £400 more, has already been raised by weekly and annual subscriptions. The building is said to be one of the most handsome edifices in the colony. The Rev. J. C. Grylles has been appointed by Bishop Broughton to the ne...

SELECT POETRY. THE LAUNCH OF A FIRST-RATE. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 15 July 1843

SELECT POETRY. THE LAUNCH OF A FIRST-RATE. England hails thee with emotion, Mightiest child of naval art ; Heaven resounds thy welcome ! Ocean Takes thee smiling to his heart. Giant oaks, of bold expansion, O'er seven hundred acres fell, All to build thy noble mansion, Where our hearts of oak shall dwell. 'Midst those trees the wild deer bounded, Ages long ere we were born, And our great grandfathers sounded Many a jovial hunting horn. Oaks that living did inherit Grandeur from our earth and sky,   Still robust, the native spirit In your timbers shall not die. Ship to shine in martial story, Thou shalt cleave the ocean's path Freighted with Britannia's glory, And the thunders of her wrath. Foes shall crowd their sails and fly thee, Threat'ning havoc to their deck, When afar they first descry thee, Like the coming whirlwind's speck. Gallant bark ! thy pomp and beauty Storm and battle ne'er shall blast,   While our tars in pride and duty Nail thy colors to th...
