To the Electors of the County of Durham. ^"~Í ENTLEMEN-I beg to return you my ^JJ~ sincere and hearty thanks for the support you afforded me in the past election for the county. The very late period in which I engaged in the contest afforded incalculable advantages to the other candidates, of which the most industrious use was made. Why I was too late I have already explained to you. I have, how- ever, every reason to believe that I should have been returned nevertheless, had no foul play been resorted to; but the most unscrupulous means were resorted to, both to obtain and sup- press votes. So many of the supporters of the other candi- dates have assured me that had I declared myse...

SELECT POETRY. ENGLISH CHURCHES. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 22 July 1843

SELECT POETRY. ENGLISH CHURCHES. How beautiful they stand, Those ancient altars of our native land ! Amid the pasture fields and dark green woods, Amid the mountain's clouds and solitudes ; By rivers broad that rush into the sea ; By little brooks that with a lisping sound, Like playful children, run by copse and lea ! Each in its plot of holy ground, How beautifully they stand, Those old grey churches of our land ! Our lives are all turmoil ; Our souls are in a weary strife and toil, Grasping and straining, tasking nerve and brain, Both day and night for gain; We have grown worldly; have made gold our god; Have turned our hearts away from lowly things ; We seek not now the wild flower on the sod ; We see not snowy folded angels' wings Amid the summer skies ; For visions come not to polluted eyes ! Yet, blessed quiet fanes ! Still piety, still poetry remains And shall remain, whilst ever on the air One chapel-bell calls high and low to prayer Whilst ever green and sunny church yards...

POUNDKEEPERS. To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 22 July 1843

POUNDKEEPERS. To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. GENTLEMEN-Many are the difficulties and anxieties to which poundkeepers are subject in the due performance of their duty ; as a strict observance on their part of the directions of the Impounding Act is opposed to prevalent notions, and singles them out as being, to say the least of it, illiberal and obstinate. Among many proofs of this assertion may be instanced the single fact of his being required to detain all cattle impounded, until replevied in due course of law (see section 11) ; so that he cannot, consistently with his duty, give credit, not even to his neighbour or friend-one cause of unpopularity. Another cause of anxiety is the difficulty of taking a correct description of cattle when first impounded ; in fact, in many cases, particularly in the winter season, it cannot be done. Although the fact may not be generally known, yet it is undeniable, that when a lot of cattle are impounded fresh from the pound into a strang...

DISTRICT COUNCILS. To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 22 July 1843

DISTRICT COUNCILS. To the Editors of tlie Maitland Mercury. GENTLEMEN-In the 41st clause of the Act for the Government of New South Wales, it is stated that provision be made for the local government of the different parts of the colony ; and it being pretty generally understood that it is the inten- tion of his Excellency the Governor to bring these local boards into full operation within the present year, it is incumbent upon every elector to make himself acquainted with the important duties which these councils will be called upon to perform ; in fact, they will be the sinews of the government, and the guardians of the people's local rights, and without such councils the government, as now established, cannot be carried on ; and upon the ability and purity of these councils will in a great measure depend the good or evil working of the whole ma- chinery of this new modelled form of govern- ment. And so alive to this has the home government been, that to prevent jobbing it is enac...

THE MAITLAND MERCURY. SATURDAY, JULY 22, 1843. THE DISTRICT COUNCIL. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 22 July 1843

THE MAITLAND MERCURY, SATURDAY, JULY 22, 1843. THE DISTRICT COUNCIL. IT has been very generally rumoured   about the town for the last few days that   it is the intention of the Governor to exercise the power vested in him by the Act for the Government of New South Wales, in regard to the appointment of the members of the first District Councils. A very general and natural feeling of dis- appointment has been expressed that the Governor has not waived the exercise of this unconstitutional power, and permitted the people to come at once into the full enjoyment of their municipal rights. By the provisions of the act, however, one third of the persons who may be appointed by his Excellency will retire at the expi- ration of a year from the time of the Councils coming into operation, another third at the end of the second year, and the remainder at the end of the third year. The people will thus be initiated by a gradual, and we think over-cautious, pro- cess i...

BENEVOLENT ASYLUM. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 22 July 1843

BENEVOLENT ASYLUM. On Thursday last a public meeting of the committee and subscribers to the Benevolent   Asylum was held in the court house, East Mait- land, for the purpose of considering whether the institution should be carried on or discontinued. Only twelve persons were in attendance, and E. C. CLOSE, Esq., having been called to the chair, said the present meeting had been called to decide whether the institution should be con- tinued or not. There was a great falling off in the payments, and there would be considerable difficulty in carrying it on, unless they could obtain fresh supplies. If this could not be done the whole burden of the institution would fall upon a few individuals, who had already sub- scribed liberally, and it would be hard for them to be called on to make up the deficiency. He could not say how far the district council, when it was instituted, might be able to assist the institution ; but it was necessary that something should immediately be ...

MURDER AT CLARENCE TOWN. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 22 July 1843

MURDER AT CLARENCE TOWN. An inquest was held on Thursday, the 13th inst., and adjourned until Monday, the 17th, at the house of Mr. James Williams, Clarence Town,   before J. S. Parker, Esq., coroner, on the body of a man named John Lennon or Lennard, a ticket of leave holder. A great number of witnesses were examined, and from the evidence which was given by them it appeared that on Saturday, the 1st July, a person named Hogue opened a new public house at Clarence Town ; the deceased, his wife, and from forty to fifty other persons, were drinking there, and a great part of them became most beastly drunk. The deceased and his wife were both drunk ; they continued there drinking for two or three days, and on Monday night, nearly all of them being drunk, there was a disturbance, which arose, as it appears from the evidence, about the deceased's wife, who was in a most helpless state of drunkenness. A battle took place, and there was some fighting with sticks outside the h...

HUNTER RIVER DISTRICT NEWS. [FROM OUR CORRESPONDENTS.] NEWCASTLE. POLICE OFFICE.-FRIDAY, JULY 14. Andrew Smith, assigned to Mr. Edward Sparke, jun., was brought before the bench charged with stealing four tongues, the property of his master. The case having been fully proved against him, and the prisoner having nothing to say in defence, he was sentenced to six days solitary confinement in the cells. TUESDAY, JULY l8. (Before Major Crummer, P.M., and Captain Armstrong, J.P.) CHARGE OF CATTLE STEALING.-George and Thomas Morley, whose case was referred to in your last, were again brought up this day, when the additional evidence of Mr. George Berwick was heard, but there was nothing in it tending to throw any criminality on the conduct of the prisoners. A very intelligent lad, a half-caste native of the colony, also gave evidence in this   case. Before he was sworn, the worthy police magistrate questioned the boy as to his know- ledge of an oath. The question elicited from the boy tha...

SYDNEY NEWS. WHOLESALE PRICES OF COLONIAL FARM AND DAIRY PRODUCE IN THE SYDNEY MARKET, DURING THE PRESENT WEEK. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 22 July 1843

SYDNEY NEWS. WHOLESALE PRICES OF COLONIAL FARM AND DAIRY PRODUCE IN THE SYDNEY MARKET, DURING THE PRESENT WEEK. WHEAT AND FLOUR.-There has been no al- teration in the prices of these articles since last week's report, the demand being very trifling. MAIZE.-Prime dry samples are still realising from 2s 9d to 3s, and will no doubt continue to command that price, provided none but good samples are sent to market. BARLEY AND OATS the same as last week. BRAN.-This article is still in fair demand; the price may be quoted at from £5 to £6 per ton, according to quality. HAY-Oaten and Lucerne.-Oaten hay was looking up a little at the commencement of the week, but there have been some arrivals from the Derwent within the last day or two, which reduced the price to about the same as quoted last week. The best V. D. Land hay is selling at £5 10s per ton. SHEEP still command the same price as stated last week. PIGS.-Good porkers are saleable, and com- mand a fair price. There have been a great m...

COMMERCIAL REMARKS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 22 July 1843

COMMERCIAL REMARKS. The storekeepers generally complain of the small amount of business which is at present transacted in Maitland; scarcely anything is doing, the settlers in the district buying no more than they are absolutely necessitated to purchase for the immediate supply of their respective establishments. Money is extremely scarce, and the prices of most articles have undergone little or no alteration. A large quantity of butter has been brought into the town by the settlers in the neighbourhood during the week, which has been purchased for the Sydney mar- ket at an average of about 8d. per lb. We have seen a sample of sugar grown at Tahiti, which is now for the first time offered in Mait- land. It appears to be superior to Manila sugar, both in colour and taste, and we have no doubt if generally known it would be extensively purchased. GRAIN, FLOUR, &C.-There has been scarcely any wheat or maize offered for sale this week. Wheat appears to maintain its price, but th...

SYDNEY NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 22 July 1843

SYDNEY NEWS. LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL.-In consequence of ill health, Mr. Denison has declined the seat in the Legislative Council which was offered to him, and the Governor has conferred the seat upon Mr. H. Elwin, chairman of the Trust Company, a gentle- man whose acquirements and experience will, we are confident, render him a most useful member.-Herald. EXPORT OF HORSES.-The ship Strath- eden will sail in the course of a week with horses for India, but she will not have so many, as, considering the low price of horses in the colony, and the very advantageous terms offered by the captain, we had expected. There are we believe, only sixty actually ready for embarkation, although a few more are expected. The shippers are Mr. H. O'Brien, Mr. R. Scott, Mr. J. T. Hughes, Mr. M'Leay, Mr. G. M'Leay, Mr. W. Gibbes, and Mr. M. H. Marsh. The Stratheden has accommodation for nearly double the number that are likely to be shipped by her.-Herald. ILLICIT DISTILLATION.-In consequence of information ...

COLONIAL INTELLIGENCE. PORT PHILLIP. JUDGE JEFFCOTT.-We understand that our new Judge, owing to the stoppage of the Sea Horse, intends coming over- land by the mail expected on Saturday next, July 8th.-P. P. Herald. SALTING ESTABLISHMENT. - Messrs. Bolden and Ryrie, both of whom are extensive holders of cattle, were making arrangements for commencing an establish- ment for salting meat, at the Junction, under the superintendence of Mr. Forrest, lately of the firm of Worsley and Forrest, who has had extensive experience in this branch of internal economy in Belfast. The new court house will be completely finished in a few days, and the way in which this has been done, both in the architecture and internal arrangements, reflects the highest credit upon the con- tractor, Councillor Beaver. The building will not only prove a great ornament to the town, but as a temple of justice, be such as the inhabitants of Australia may well be proud of.-P. P. Herald.

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

INDIA. By the arrival of the Terror from Sin- gapore, via Port Adelaide, on Saturday last, we have received a file of the Singa- pore Free Press to the 2nd February. They contain no news of any importance. We however subjoin a few extracts. TIGERS.-We are sorry to observe that these monsters are again disturbing the planters. While three wood cutters were at work on Friday morning at the extremity of a plantation a few miles from town, a tiger pounced upon one and succeeded in carrying him off into the jungle. The apathy of the Malays is proverbial, and neither remonstance nor offers of reward can induce them to make any attempt to destroy these animals, notwithstanding the melancholy loss of life which so frequently occurs amongst them.-Singapore Free Press, January 26. THE LOSS OF THE BRIG CHILDERS. The brig Childers, which sailed from this on the 15th ultimo, for Macao, was lost in the Palawan passage on the 9th instant. The weather had been stormy for two or three days previousl...
