RECOLLECTIONS OF MR. CANNING AND LORD BROUGHAM. [From "Attic Fragments," an unpublished work.] [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 15 July 1843

RECOLLECTIONS OF MR. CANNING AND LORD BROUGHAM. [From "Attic Fragments," an unpublished work.] They resembled each other only in standing foremost and alone in their re- spective parties ; they were in every other respect opposed as the zenith and the nadir, or as light and darkness. This difference extended even to their personal appearance. Canning was any, open, and prepossessing: Brougham seemed stern, hard, lowering, and almost repulsive. The head of Canning had an air of extreme elegance : that of Brougham was much the reverse; but still, in whatever way it was viewed, it gave a sure indication of the terrible power of the inhabitant within. Canning's features were handsome ; and his eye, though deeply ensconced under his eye brows, was full of sparkle and gaiety. The features of Brougham were harsh in the extreme. While his forehead shot up to a great elevation, his chin was long and square. His mouth, nose, and eyes seemed huddled together in the centre of his face, the eyes...

THE MAITLAND MERCURY. SATURDAY, JULY 15, 1843. PRISON DISCIPLINE. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 15 July 1843

TOE MAITLAND MERCUKY, SATURDAY, JULY 15, 1843. PRISON DISCIPLINE. TIIE old adage of "penny wise and pound foolish" is frequently to be found in the economy of states as well as indi- viduals ;- and perhaps there is no other country to which this trite apothegm is more applicable than the colony of New South Wales, particularly in the regulation of prisons and the administration of justice. From the dispersed state of the population, it must necessarily happen that the administration of justice will be more tardy, and consequently more ex- pensive, than in countries where the population is more concentrated and the facilities for travelling more numerous and of a better description. In this district, perhaps more than any other in the colony, a great annual expense is incurred in the escorting of prisoners. All persons com- mitted for trial at the Maitland Circuit Court, or at the Quarter Sessions for the district, are forwarded to the gaol at Newcastle to await their trials, from wh...

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. QUARTER SESSIONS. To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 15 July 1843

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. QUARTER SESSIONS. To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. GENTLEMEN-For the last four or five years it has been a matter of surprise that no public notice has been taken of the slovenly manner in which the proceedings of Quarter Sessions have been conducted. Notice is regularly issued that the business of the said court commences on a certain day, on which day it is the bounden duty of all connected with the business of the court to attend ; and, if it be the business of the public, should it not be equally the business of the officers of the public, to be at their post ? But what are the facts of the case ? As it has happened to-day, so has it happened at inter- vening periods for years past, that the business of the court has been delayed from a cause over which the public has no control-from the non-arrival of the steamer, or from its arrival at so late a period of the day as seriously to delay the business of the court. Now, admitting, as I am prepared t...

HUNTER RIVER DISTRICT NEWS. [FROM OUR CORRESPONDENTS.] BLACK CREEK. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 15 July 1843

HUNTER RIVER DISTRICT NEWS [FROM OUR CORRESPONDENTS.] BLACK CREEK.   THE WEATHER.-The weather during this week has been exceedingly cold, with much wind, which has had the effect of cutting off the feed in this neighbourhood greatly in so short a time.   ORDERS.-On Tuesday last two men went to Mr. Slack's Inn, and after obtaining some refreshment they went to a lodging house on the other side of the creek for the night, leaving behind them their bundles and an order for £1 13s. 4d., the change of which they said they would call for in the morning. Mr. Franks happened to be at Mr. Slack's the next morning, and the order was shown to him, when he expressed his opinion that it would not be advisable to take it. He was told who the parties were from whom it had been taken. He had met them on his way to the inn, and on returning about an hour afterwards one of them came into his shop to purchase some goods, and presented, an order of a similar description, thoug...

SYDNEY NEWS. STATEMENT OF THE PRESENT WHOLESALE PRICES, &C., OF COLONIAL FARM AND DAIRY PRODUCE IN THE SYDNEY MARKET. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 15 July 1843

SYDNEY NEWS. STATEMENT OF THE PRESENT WHOLESALE PRICES, &C, OF COLONIAL FARM AND DAIRY PRODUCE IN THE SYDNEY MARKET. WHEAT.-There are some holders of V. D. Land, who are offering it at from 4s 6d to 5s per bushel. Scarcely any colonial wheat is coming to market ; what there is at present is of a very inferior quality, from injury received by the weevil. It is bad policy keeping wheat too long on hand ; some of the same lot has lately been sold for 2s 6d, which in January last realized 5s 6d. FLOUR is very dull of sale ; the best quality is offering at from £10 to £12 per ton. MAIZE.-The best samples of this article have been selling during the week at from 2s 9d. to 3s, and some soft inferior samples as low as 2s. Some hundreds of 'bushels of inferior quality have been forced into the market during the last three months, before it was even fit to thrash ; it consequently became heated on the passage to Sydney, and was sold for scarcely sufficient to pay expenses. The dealers...

COMMERCIAL REMARKS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 15 July 1843

COMMERCIAL REMARKS. Every thing remains pretty much in the same state as at our last; the. price of wheat has undergone no change, and maize, if anything, is rather looking up. The prices of flour, bread, meat,and vegetables are the same. Butter appears to be very plenti- ful, and is selling at from 9d. to 1s. per lb. ; the very best is bringing no more than the latter price. We cannot report any alteration in other articles ; nor is there any perceptible difference in the amount of business transacted.

COLONIAL INTELLIGENCE. PORT PHILLIP. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 15 July 1843

COLONIAL INTELLIGENCE. PORT PHILLIP. THE NEW LEGISLATURE.-It is said that two of the twelve government nomi- dees in the new Legislative Council are to be selected from among the residents in this district, but it is not yet known who are to be the parties named. We would fain hope there is some truth in the report, for this district ought, unquestionably, to have a share in the official as well as in the elective representation ; and to give us what is justly our due without previous solicitation shows a disposition on the part of his Excellency to act fairly towards the province, for which we have not always had occasion to give him credit-.P, P, Patriot. JUDGE WILLIS.-This gentleman yes- terday took a passage for himself and lady to England by the Glenbervie, which is announced to sail in about ten days.-P, P.Herald.   PUBLIC MEETING.-On Thursday, the 29th June, a public meeting was held in the Mechanics' Institution, Melbourne, to consider the propriety of adopting ...

BRITISH EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 15 July 1843

BRITISH EXTRACTS. WOOL.-We are happy to state that a highly respectable meeting took place in this town yesterday, at the counting-house of Messrs. B. Gott and Sons, of gentle- men interested in the woollen manufacture, at which it was resolved that a memorial should be prepared, to be presented to the government, praying for the repeal of the duty on foreign wool. Another meeting   will be held, at which the memorial will be finally agreed on. In the mean time, correspondence is taking place with the members for the borough and riding on the subject. We hope every other place interested in the woollen manufacture town or village-will act in the same way; for in the present state of the English woollen trade, the duty is quite destructive. -Leeds Mercury, Feb. 11.-The same journal also says-"The wool market is not likely to receive any very favourable impulse from the accounts received by the overland mail, and which are certainly less satisfactory than those obtained b...

Caroline Harrison was indicted for stealing a £5 note, the property of Walter Buchanan Wilkinson, on the 7th June last, at Maitland. Guilty, to be imprisoned in Newcastle gaol for six calendar months. Robert Stewart was indicted for stealing a hat, the property of our Sovereign Lady the Queen, at Muswellbrook, on the 29th May last, value 5s. It appeared that on the night mentioned in the indictment the prisoner went to Mr. Nowlan's inn, Muswellbrook, where he staid all night, and on going away before daylight next morning he took with him a straw hat belonging to Mr. Nowlan's assigned servant. The prisoner's defence was, that he rose early to go off by the mail, and took the hat in a mistake. The jury returned a verdict of not guilty, and the prisoner was discharged.

Classified Advertising [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 22 July 1843

[ADVERTISEMENT.] To William Ogilvie, Esq., Candidate for the Representation of the County of Durham. SIR-Your remark on the conduct of your rivals in the late election, "in the employment of foul play, and the most unscrupulous means being resorted to, both to obtain and suppress votes," is entitled to a reply, and perhaps a few remarks vthich will quench your hopes of success in any future attempt to arrive at the honor of a seat in the Council for that county. As I know nothing of other places, I do not intend to defend practices with the existence of which I am unacquainted; but I attended at Muswellbrook, and in one instance was witness to the most unblushing acts of intimidation, by which one person's vote was wrenched from him in your favor. But from the majority of your voters at that, your stronghold, I was compelled to Hear that, if it had not been for the support given you by the Messrs. Forbes, yon would not have had a single voice in your favor ; as even those, who voted...
