SYDNEY NEWS. LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 28 January 1843
SYDNEY NEWS. LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. The Legislative Council met on Tuesday last, when all the members were present except the Chief Justice and Sir John Jamison. The Governor read a short minute, stating that the Act of Parliament for the government of New South Wales having directed that all the necessary provisions for carrying it into effect should be made by the council, he had thought it right to summon them as early as possible. He had received the act on the 1st, and proclaimed it on the 5th of the present month. The minute then detailed the measures which the council were met to consider, ac- cording to the second, clause of the act, and went on to say that a bill for this purpose had been prepared, and would be laid before them im- mediately ; that no other measure of any &nbsp; importance would be brought under their con- sideration ; and that, in passing it, the council would bring their own political functions to a close ; but that nevertheless the members would no...
INDIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 28 January 1843
INDIA. By an " Englishman " of October 7th, intelli- gence has been received (via Mauritius) to a late date, and it is anticipated that the next arrival will bring intelligence of the release of Lady Sale and the other prisoners. An engage- ment had taken plaice between Ackbar Khan and Major General Pollock, at Tazeen, on the 13th September, which lasted nearly the whole day. Ackbar Khan was accompanied from -Cabool by 500 horse and 1000 foot : the Ghilzees invited him out, saying they were 20,000 strong, and would assist him. Ackbar Khan com- manded one division in person, and Ameenoollah and Mahomet Shah Khan another; whilst a third was commanded by Azeez Khan Ghilzee and Khan Sheereer Khan. Several obstinate assaults were made by Ackbar, and by the Ghilzees under Azeez Khan, but our troops reserved their fire until the Affghans came close, when they opened upon the enemy, and the destruction was most severe. The divisions under Azeez suffered most, and at length gave way. Ackbar'...

THE ELECTION.—PUBLIC MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 28 January 1843
THE ELECTION.—PUBLIC MEETING. On Tuesday last a public meeting of the inhabitants of Maitland and the county of &nbsp; Northumberland was held at the Rose Inn, West Maitland, for the purpose of taking measures to secure the return of efficient and proper representatives for the district in the forthcoming Legislative Council. The meeting was rather numerously attended, but comparatively few persons from the country were present. A commo- dious platform had been erected by Mr. P. J. Cohen in front of his hotel, from which the speakers addressed the meeting. James Reid, Esq., of Newcastle, was in the chair, and opened the business by reading the resolutions passed at the meet- ing held on the 9th instant. He then said that since that meeting was held two of the &nbsp; candidates for the representation of the boroughs had held public meetings and made a declaration of their principles. The meeting was no doubt aware that there were three condidates in the field, viz., C...

NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 4 February 1843
NEW ZEALAND. Intelligence has been received from New Zealand to the 30th December. Hostilities between the native tribes at Tauranga had not ceased, notwithstanding the presence of Governor Shortland. Each party mustered about four hundred fighting men, but great disunion prevailed among them. Robberies and disorders of every kind were frequent at Port Nicholson, which was attributed partly to the insufficiency of the police. The last whaling season was an unproductive one, and a number of men belonging to the fisheries were out of employment. An exceedingly heavy gale of wind was ex- perienced at Nelson on Sunday, the 11th December, but no damage was done to the shipping. The amount collected in Wellington towards relieving the sufferers from the late fire was £331 12s. 8d., and £43 2s. 6d. more had been promised. Auckland was immediately to be proclaimed a borough, under the municipal ordinance. On dit, that overtures have been made by an influential party in China, to the British...

[advertisement.] TO THE NORTHUMBRIAN BOROUGH ELECTORS. ' Northumbrian Electors, free Burghers by right, By the grace of our sovereign donor, Since at length we've obtained-through our patriots of might, Such as Wentworth the mighty in politic fight That distinction of freedom, the Briton's birth- right, Let us prove ourselves worthy the honor. Well behoves it the favored of Botany Bay, In this their first happy election, To look well to their liberties, interests, nay To the weal of their sons, who may bless in their day The wisdom of sires whose actions now may Stand the test for rigid inspection. A Scott and a Wentworth step forth to our view, Who pledge to protect us from danger ; The former well known as the man of "True &nbsp; Blue" The " useful," the " kind," both to me and to you; The latter we know not if Pagan or Jew, All we know is " the man is a stranger." Does the hireling, indeed, who now comes and departs, Care much for the sheep that he tends ? Let the wolf of...

THE MAITLAND MERCURY. SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 4, 1843. THE SQUATTERS OF THE NORTHERN DISTRICTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 4 February 1843
THE MAITLAND MERCURY. SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 4, 1843. THE SQUATTERS OF THE NORTHERN DISTRICTS. In the month of November last a petition was presented to his Excellency the Go- vernor by the stockholders and graziers of Liverpool Plains, New England, and adjoining districts, calling his Excellency's attention to the operation of the laws and regulations affecting the squatters in their intercourse with the aboriginal natives, and soliciting protection from the government to prevent the further loss of life and property. His Excellency, in his reply, dated November 30, admitted the evils complained of, but held out no pledge of relief, on the plea that he could not imagine in what manner he could interfere to prevent the commission of these atroci- ties. He further pointed out, in justifica- tion, we suppose, of his not taking active measures to put a stop to these outrages, that in addition to the whole of the assess- ment raised on stock in those districts, nearly the whole of the reven...
HUNTER RIVER DISTRICT NEWS. [FROM OUR CORRESPONDENTS.] SINGLETON. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 4 February 1843
HUNTER RIVER DISTRICT NEWS. [FROM OUR CORRESPONDENTS.] SINGLETON. The Weather.-No rain has fallen here since the shower on the 9th of last month, except a little drizzling rain on Tuesday, the 31st. As might be expected, the young corn is rapidly advancing to premature maturity; in some places where the ground was not properly worked previous to planting it has entirely failed. The grass which a few weeks past, had a cheerfully green appearance, is now withered and dry. This day (Thursday) has set in cloudy, with occasional slight showers of rain. The Markets. - Flour is now both at the Steam Mills and at Mr. Nicholson's store, fine 20s, seconds 18s, ration 16s ; bran 8s per 100 lbs ; wheat, 5s. per bushel for good samples ; bread, 4½d the 2 lb loaf; beef and mutton is just now 3d, per lb, in consequence of Mr. J. Watson having opened a shop, between whom and Mr. Coberoft there is some opposition ; another butcher sells at the old price of 3½d, freshly salted 4d. Vegetables are ve...
SYDNEY NEWS. Thursday Evening, Feb. 2. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 4 February 1843
SYDNEY NEWS. Thursday Evening, Feb. 2. The city has been very dull to-day, and I have nothing of importance to tell you that you will not have already learned from the papers of this morning. The members of the various ward committees appointed for the valuation of city property, preparatory to the imposition of an assessment, have at length brought their labours to a close, and met yesterday at the council chamber for the purpose of arranging their report for pre- sentation to the council, which is to sit tomorrow. It is impossible in the present stage of affairs to form anything like an accurate conjecture as to what amount of rate will be determined upon, but as the corporation have every prospect of deriving a considerable revenue from the market and water works, it is probable that the taxes will at first be very light. The excitement of electioneering is passing away for the present, although there is little doubt that it will be revived in all its original vigour as the perio...

SALE OF CROWN LANDS ACT. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 4 February 1843
SALE OF CROWN LANDS ACT. Owing probably to the state of political excitement which exists in consequence of the forthcoming elections, another act of the Imperial Parliament, almost of equal consequence to the colonists of New South Wales with that for the future government of the colony, appears to have attracted little notice. The act to which we allude is entitled -'An Act for Regulating the Sale of Waste Land belonging to the Crown in the Australian Colonies ;" and it was proclaimed by the Governor in the Government Gazette on Thursday, the 12th January, from which day it took effect and had the force of law. We now propose to give our readers an abstract of each clause of this act seriatim. It is enacted by the 1st clause that for the future the waste lands within the Aus- tralian colonies belonging to the crown shall be disposed of as the act prescribes, and not otherwise. By the 2nd clause it is enacted that no land shall be alienated from the crown except by way of sale, and...

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. GENTLEMEN I presume that to your cha- racter of guides of the public opinion, you associate that of oracles of the sentiments of any individual of that public, so long as he couches them in inoffensive and impartial terms. I say impartial, for though my language may appear not to deserve that character, if ob- jections to one of the present candidates in the ensuing election could be construed into par- tiality, I can safely affirm that I am influenced by no party feeling with regard to the other candidate in what I am about to say. Let us examine the claims of the candidates &nbsp; for the representation of the Northumbrian boroughs. In the "head and front of the offending" I find an indecent haste in the pri- vate and active canvassing for votes, before having publicly announced an intention of becoming a candidate for them. I may be wrong ; but such is my feeling on the subject. He who covertly attempts to...
