COMMERCIAL REMARKS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 26 August 1843

COMMERCIAL REMARKS. As usual of late, we have again to report that trade is extremely dull; if anything, business seems to be drawing into a still narrower com- pass ; there is literally nothing doing. There has been scarcely any produce brought into Maitland from the settlers in the vicinity during the week, and the prices of all articles of consumption remain without the slightest alteration ; although we have heard that there is a slight advance in the price of sugar, both imported and at the Canterbury works, in the Sydney market.

THE CULTURE OF TOBACCO. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 26 August 1843

THE CULTURE OF TOBACCO. Having in our last proceeded with the cultivation of the tobacco plant to as far as the transplanting of the young crop, we now resume the subject. The plant having taken root, and began to grow, it should, as soon as it is strong enough, undergo the process of topping. This is done by pinching off the leading stem or sprout of the plant with the thumb nail, which would otherwise run np into flower and seed, and thus prevent the substantial formation of the leaf by draining the lower parts of the plant of its nutrive juices. The bottom leaves should also be pruned off, none being left so low as to rub upon the ground ; not more than eight or ten leaves being left upon a plant, according to the quality of the ground, as upon ordinary ground eight leaves are sufficient ; it will be advisable to go over the crop twice a week till these operations are completed. If topped too high, so as to leave more leaves, the bottom ones are apt to decline before those above ...

HUNTER RIVER DISTRICT NEWS. [FROM OUR CORRESPONDENTS.] MUSWELLBROOK. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 26 August 1843

HUNTER RIVER NEWS,   [FROM OUR CORRESPONDENTS.] MUSWELLBROOK. The valley of the Upper Hunter, acknow- ledged by almost every one capable of judging to be the finest tract of country in the colony, has been miserably barren and unfruitful during the past two years. The river itself, and all its tributaries, has been a mere chain of ponds, with miles of pebbly bed ; the water boles being "few and far between." No gushing stream to refresh and vivify. The very pools themselves, in which were concentrated all the river moisture, were nauseous, and the water almost unfit for use,                 from vegetable decomposition. On the surface of the soil the grass and herbage has been scanty and stunted in the extreme. The wheat and maize crops have been almost a total failure, seed time having upon the average absorbed more than harvest was found to yield. As for vegetables ...

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 — 26 August 1843

SYDNEY NEWS. WHOLESALE PRICES OF COLONIAL FARM AND DAIRY PRODUCE IN THE SYDNEY MARKET DURING THE PRESENT WEEK. WHEAT AND FLOUR.-No alteration has yet taken place in the price of these articles. MAIZE is a shade lower than last week, 2s to 2s 3d being the highest prices given for the best samples. BARLEY AND OATS are very little in demand ; 2s 5d is about the price given. BRAN.-This article maintains its price well ; it still realises from £5 to £6, according to the   quality. HAY-Oaten and Lucerne-may be quoted at about the same as last week. PIGS.-There have not been so many pigs forced into the market this week ; they are con- sequently maintaining a more steady price, and will sell tolerably well if sent in proper condition for market. POULTRY AND EGGS are selling about the same as last week. BUTTER.-This article has been in good de- mand during this week ; that which is packed in kegs of about 50 lbs. is very readily purchased, that being the most convenient size fo...

LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. TUESDAY, AUGUST 22. SYDNEY AUCTION COMPANY. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 26 August 1843

LEISLATIVE COUNCIL. TUESDAY, AUGUST 22. SYDNEY AUCTION COMPANY. The bill to extend the Sydney Auction Com- pany Act until September, 1846, was read a first time, and ordered to be read a second time on Tuesday next, the 29th instant. ABORIGINES. Dr. THOMSON stated that the motion of which he had given notice, as to certain returns relative to the mission to the aborigines, had been put down by mistake for that day, whereas he had given notice for the 29th, to which day he wished it to stand over. PREFERABLE LIEN ON STOCK BILL. Mr. WENTWORTH gave notice that on Friday, the 25th instant, he would move the second reading of the bill to enable the proprietors of sheep to give a preferable lien on their wool from season to season, and further to give valid mort- gage securities on cattle, sheep, and horses, without delivery of the same to the mortgagee.

THE MAITLAND MERCURY. SATURDAY, AUGUST 26, 1843. SOLVENT DEBTORS BILL. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 26 August 1843

THE MAITLAND MERCURY, SATURDAY, AUGUST 26, 1843. SOLVENT DEBTORS BILL. ALTHOUGH the debate upon the second reading of Mr. Wentworths bill called forth a good deal of irrelevant and legal quibbling, it proved nevertheless that many of our legislators are competent to grapple with the practical difficulties of legislation, and determined to perform their duty in an independent spirit. The bill, in its original shape, certainly contained many objectionable features, but the principle upon -which it is based, although a depar- ture from the ordinary course of law, is peculiarly applicable to our present cir- cumstances, and if carried out in a fair and equitable spirit will, we feel persuaded, mitigate the evils under which we are labouring, and contribute towards their removal. That there is still a great deal of rottenness in our system which requires to be purged away before we can return to a healthy state, we most readily grant : at the same time we believe that there are a large n...

ROBBERY AND ATTEMPT AT MURDER. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 26 August 1843

ROBBERY AND ATTEMPT AT MURDER. A most daring-robbery and attempt at murder was perpetrated on Friday evening, the 18th instant, on the property and person of a small settler named William Hurley, residing near Hexham. Intelligence of the outrage was received by the police in Maitland between two   and three o'clock on Saturday morning, and chief constable Wood, accompanied by constables Fry and Pritchard, set off to the place, and were soon afterwards followed by Mr. Day. On arriving at Hurley's hut it was discovered that he had received a very dangerous gunshot wound under the shoulder, and was much exhausted from loss of blood. Nearly all the assigned servants and ticket-of-leave holders in the neigh- bourhood were apprehended by daylight on Saturday morning, and taken to Hurley's hut. The following statement was made by him on oath before Mr. Day : " I am, I believe, dying from the effects of a wound I received last night ; it was a gunshot wound. Yesterday, after di...

ORIGINAL POETRY. THE LASS OF ULENGO. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 26 August 1843

ORIGINAL POETRY. THE LASS OF ULENGO. Let those who worship fashion sigh At titled beauty's feet; Let him whose god is mammon try A golden bride to meet ; Let all whom affectation charms Frequent the city show ; But give unto my happy arms The Lass of Ulengo. If beauty that hath bloom'd apart Be loveliest to behold ; A spotless name, and truth of heart, More excellent than gold ; If sparkling arts that lure to sin Be naught to virtue's glow ; Then matchless were my portion in The Lass of Ulengo. I see her in my dreams by night, And hear her gentle voice ; And when in morning's golden light All living things rejoice, Each skiey tint of rarest grain, Each fresh delight below, All bring into my thoughts again The Lass of Ulengo. Oh, never may one frown of fate Upon her future lour! Nor villain gulle there lie in wait   To wound so sweet a flower! But happiness for her abound, And love for ever flow,   A bright and gushing stream, around The Lass of Ulengo ! CHA...

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. THRASHING MACHINE. To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 26 August 1843

ORIGINA* CORRESPONDENCE. THRASHING MACHINE. To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. GENTLEMEN-Your correspondent F. N., in last week's paper, seems led into error by sup- posing the thrashing machine he saw at Mr. Jarman's, husking and thrashing maize, to be the invention of that gentleman. I do not suppose Mr. J. makes any claim to invention in the machine, as it is the subject of a patent in England. I should not have taken notice of this matter, but for the name of the party having been passed over in silence who really is entitled to credit for the introduction of these useful machines into the colony ; and to whom I con- sider the colonists are under a debt of gratitude for his spirited enterprise, in not only being the means of this invention, but for the sensible manner in which he went about it. Some time in 1838 Dr. Scott, of the William River, left this colony for England, and took with him two or three casks of Indian corn, with the husks on, just as it came from the fiel...

SYDNEY NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 2 September 1843

SYDNEY NEWS. The City Council have come to the resolution of employing 300 married men in repairing the streets, at 15s. per week each. The meetings of the City Council, from its commencement to the 9th August, have amounted to 67 ; there are only two of the members who have not been absent at any of these meetings ; these are Aldermen Allen and Broughton. The Herald of Saturday last says that a letter had been received by Mr. Poole from his son, who resides at Tahiti, which stated that intel- ligence had been received there by H. M. S. Satellite that the town of Valparaiso from one end to the other had been burnt down. The letter does not enter into particulars, but the Herald says there is reason to fear the truth of the statement it contains. A theatrical performance took place at Parramatta some few weeks since by amateurs, in the Roman Catholic School-room, and the proceeds, amounting (after all expenses paid) to £28, have been handed over to the Benevolent Asylum at Parramatta...
