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

ENGLISH NEWS. Intelligence from England has been received via Hobart Town and Port Phillip to the beginning of May. On the 25th April her Majesty was safely delivered of a daughter. His Royal Highness the Duke of Sussex died on Tuesday, April 21st, in the 71st year of his age. By his death several offices have become vacant. The theatres were closed for three days after his Royal Highness's death, and ten days public mourning had been proclaimed. The remains of his Royal Highness were to be interred on the 4th May, in the cemetery at Kensall Green ; it was to be a state funeral ; 25,000 freemasons were expected to form part of the procession. Parliament re-assembled after the Easter recess on the 24th April. A shock of an earthquake had been felt in Holland. The wings of Mr. Henson's aerial machine were being made at the Montpelier Gardens. Her Majesty had presented a donation of £1000 to the funds of the Blue Coat School. According to an article which appears in the Launceston Exam...

NEW ZEALAND.—THE LATE AFFRAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 2 September 1843

NEW ZEALAND.-THE LATE AFFRAY. Our readers will probably recollect that some few weeks ago we noticed an affray which had taken place between a party of Europeans, under Mr. Thompson, the police magistrate, and a number of the aboriginal New Zealanders, under the direction of the two chiefs Rauparaha and Rangihaiata, at Cook's Straits. By the arrival of the Thomas Lord in Sydney on Saturday last, from Auckland, some additional particulars of the fatal conflict have been received. It appears that at least nineteen white men and nine natives have been killed, and four whites are missing. Among the killed are Captain Wakefield, the New Zealand Com- pany's agent at Nelson, Mr. Thompson, the local judge, Mr. Richardson, crown prosecutor, Captain England, late of H. M. 12th regiment, Mr. Howard, the company's storekeeper, Mr. Patchett, merchant, Mr. Cotterell, surveyor, Messrs. John Brooke, William Clanzay, Thomas Ratcliffe, William Northam, Thomas Pay, Coster, James M'Gregor, William Gard...

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 2 September 1843

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. GENTLEMEN-Allow me to offer through the medium of your journal a few observations rela- tive to the police of this district. As a resident, and one interested, I should like to know the reason the police force is not kept up to that standard for which the annual vote of the Legis- lative Council provides. In this portion of the united districts of Wollombi and Macdonald we have only one constable, exclusive of the district constable and lockup keeper, and the time of that one is principally occupied as manager, and on escort; indeed he is never seen unless on those duties. Now, the annual vote, I believe, provides for a force of eight persons, in the united districts. There is, I believe, three at the Macdonald and three here ; and, whoever has to bear the onus, I must say it is short- sighted parsimony which, for the sake of the saving, would deprive the district of two efficient men in the police, particularly when t...

COLONIAL INTELLIGENCE. PORT PHILLIP. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 2 September 1843

COLONIAL INTELLIGENCE. PORT PHILLIP. The Port Phillip Herald says:-"The Tas- manian Review of the 28th July has the follow- ing important paragraph:-'Bones in Hobart Town are now selling at £4 per ton, two tons of which were sold a few days since at £8, and taken as ballast ; those bones in England are a ready sale at £8 per ton.' We recommend this new export to the attention of the proprietors of our salting and sheep boiling establishments." The dry dock at Geelong was nearly complete. It was expected that it would be ready for the reception of the Aphrasia, which was to be taken into it, for the purpose of being refitted, on the 20th instant. Mr. G. T. Lloyd has just completed arrange- ments at Geelong for carrying on sheep boiling upon a very extensive scale. The settlers in that neighbourhood had promised to send him in 9000 sheep for the purpose of being boiled down. The foundation of a new theatre had been laid at Melbourne by Mr. Smith.

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 2 September 1843

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. GENTLEMEN-I perceive your correspondent at Black Creek has called the attention of the Local Council to the state of the roads from here to Singleton, at the same time recommending them to carry the improvement of them via Glendon. Your correspondent must be aware of the impracticability of their doing so without entailing a very heavy expense upon the district, as the river Hunter must be crossed twice by going that road, and which could not be done   without throwing bridges across both places. This your correspondent, must have known, as the mail for Singleton has not been able to go that road for the last week, in consequence of the river being too high to ford; whereas the high road, as laid out and finished by Sir T. L. Mitchell, could be put in repair at a trifling expense. -Yours, &c, A SUBSCRIBER. Black Creek, August 30th, 1843.

LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. FRIDAY, AUGUST 25. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 2 September 1843

LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. FRIDAY, AUGUST 25. Mr. WENTWORTH moved for leave to bring in a bill to regulate the interest on money, and for other purposes therein mentioned. Major WENTWORTH seconded the motion, which was carried, and the bill was read a first time, and ordered to be read a second time on Friday, the 8th September. ESTIMATES. Mr. WALKER gave notice that he would, on Wednesday, the 30th instant, move that a select committee be appointed to take into considera- tion the estimates for the year 1844. PREFERABLE LIEN BILL. The second reading of this bill was postponed until Wednesday, the 30th instant. SOLVENT DEBTORS BILL. The house then went into committee on the above bill, which was gone through to as far as the tenth clause without any material alteration. On the eleventh and twelfth clauses being read, Mr. THERRY said they had now come to the really important part of the bill : these clauses would tend to vary the principle of the bill, and would form a novel feature in the...

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 — 2 September 1843

SYDNEY NEWS. WHOLESALE PRICES OF COLONIAL FARM AND DAIRY PRODUCE IN THE SYDNEY MARKET, DURING THE PRESENT WEEK. WHEAT AND FLOUR.-There have been some arrivals of wheat from Van Diemen's Land during the last week, but mostly of an inferior quality ; the sales effected realised 4s. to 4s. 6d. per bushel. In flour there has been no alteration. There is very little colonial wheat coming to market, and what there is is of a very inferior quality. MAIZE.-Little has arrived during the past week, but the market is well stocked ; the prices may be quoted the same as last week. BARLEY AND OATS, BRAN, HAY.-No alte- ration from last week. PIGS.-Very few pigs have been sent to market this week, which will cause a rise in their price as soon as the large quantities are killed off that were forced into the market a week or two back, which reduced their price nearly to that of mutton and beef. The present price for prime porkers, weighing about 70 or 80 lbs., is 3d per lb, wholesale. POULTRY AND EG...

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

COMMERCIAL REMARKS. There has been scarcely any produce of any kind brought into Maitland during the past week, which may be in part attributed to the very bad state of the roads, occasioned by the late rains. We cannot report any improvement at all in the state of business; very little indeed has been transacted this week. Nor has there been any alteration in the prices of various articles of consumption, with the exception of beef and mutton, which were yesterday lowered by one butcher to 1d. per lb.

THE MAITLAND MERCURY[?] SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 2, 1843. THE DISTRICT COUNCILS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 2 September 1843

THE MAITLAND MERCURY, SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 2, 1843. THE DISTRICT COUNCILS. IT will be perceived, from the message of his excellency the Governor to the Legislative Council, on presenting the estimates for 1844, that the sum of £19,130 of the police expen- diture will have to be raised by the District Councils. His Excellency rather curiously re- marks, in reference to this, "that the smallness of the sum which it is proposed to charge on the District Councils during the ensuing year will, it is hoped, go far lo remove the apprehensions which have been raised of increased taxation in consequence of the institution of those bodies." We cannot, of course, judge of the impression this announcement may have made upon others, but upon us it has had exactly the opposite effect to that anticipated by his Excellency. It has brought the cost of our new corporate insti- tutions more tangibly and distinctly before us, and has thus naturally led us to apply ourselves more closely to the study of ...

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. AMATEUR THEATRICALS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 2 September 1843

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. AMATEUR THEATRICALS. The first performance of the amateur company for the benefit of the Maitland Benevolent Society took place at the Northumberland Hotel on Monday evening last, and, notwithstanding the very unfavourable state of the weather, we were glad to see so large an audience, amongst whom we perceived some of the most respectable families in the neighbourhood ; had the weather been propitious, from the number of tickets actually sold the house would have been crowded. The pieces selected were Bombastes Furioso and Othello Travestie. There was a very good band in attendance. The room was very conveniently fitted up ; and the scenery, which was painted by Mr. Random, was executed in a manner which reflects very great credit upon him as a scenic painter. The whole arrangements of the stage, which were under the superintendence of Mr. R., were such as to give great satisfaction, and, considering the very limited space upon which he had to work, produced the...

DISTRICT COUNCILS.—PUBLIC MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 12 September 1843

DISTRICT COUNCILS. - PUBLIC MEETING. On Saturday last a public meeting of the inhabitants of the Maitland district was held in the court house, East Mait- land, for the purpose of adopting a petition to the Legislative Council " to delay the operation of that portion of the Act of Parliament 5 and 6 Victoria, cap. 76, authorising the Governor to establish Dis- trict Councils." The requisition upon which the meeting had been convened having been read by E. D. Day, Esq., P.M., Captain HUNGERFORD was called to the chair. Mr. C. M. DOYLE said he had a resolu- tion to propose, which he trusted would receive the approbation of the meeting, but before he proposed it he wished to make a few observations. He was con- fident that there was no person present but would admit that the act for introducing District Councils in the present unfortunate state of the colony was unwise, as there was now no market either for their agricul- tural or pastoral productions. Grain and other property was now ...
