To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 16 September 1843

To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. GENTLEMEN-It is a matter of surprise, as well as of just and general complaint, amongst the inhabitants of this district, that an individual holding the important and responsible office of chief constable should be allowed to be a vendor of goods, or in other words, a storekeeper. In a community constituted as ours must necessarily be, from its late character as a penal settlement, it is a matter of the highest moment that the avenues of justice, in all their ramifications, should be freed from any and every obstruction, and that every officer connected with its admin- istration, from the highest to the lowest, should be removed from either fear or favour in the exercise of it. It is, I apprehend, needless to dwell for one moment upon the temptations to which an indi- vidual holding the office to which I have just alluded may be exposed in the due performance of his duties, and that a secret influence, the more dangerous from its secrecy, may ...

ORIGINAL POETRY. A SONG FOR THE SPRING TIME. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 16 September 1843

ORIGINAL POETRY. A SONG FOR THE SPRING TIME. The mimosas are blooming, For summer is coming, I felt her warm breath in the forest to-day : Where the river is streaming,   And Nature lies dreaming Of new love and beauty, come, dearest, away. His gentle mate wooing, The wood-pigeon's cooing In the oaks that o'ershadow the path we will take; Like music out flowing, Come forth, that all glowing And beautiful things may please more for your sake. We will wander, joy drinking, Until the sun, sinking, Shall give the deep west with his glory to blaze; When homeward returning, With poesy burning, I'll mint from those splendours a song in your praise. CHARLES HARPUR. Jerry's Plains, 10th September, 1843.

SYDNEY NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 16 September 1843

SYDNEY NEWS. The Sydney District Council met on Saturday last, when it was announced by the Warden that the Governor had altered the charter so as to exclude the city. A discussion then rose as to whether they could legally hold their meetings in the city, and it was agreed that the Warden should take such steps as would enable them to do this. No officers were appointed, but it was considered that a surveyor and secretary were immediately necessary, and the council was to meet to-day (Saturday), for the purpose of appointing them. The salary of the former was fixed at £200, and £50 for travelling expenses, and the latter at £150. The Windsor District Council held their first meeting on Tuesday, Sept. 5th After the charter had been read the Warden read a letter from Mr. Beddek, which stated that he (Mr. B.) was not qualified to act as a councillor, and that if he did so act it might render any proceedings on the part of the council nugatory. The Warden afterwards stated that he had ...

THE BLACKS ON THE BARWIN. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 16 September 1843

THE BLACKS ON THE BARWIN. Since our last we have received some addi- tional particulars of the murder lately perpe- trated by the blacks on the Barwin. The me- lancholy intelligence of Mr. Hallen's death has been confirmed ; it appears that he survived the injuries he received for about ten days. The attack, as stated in our last, was made in the night, in a very sudden and unexpected manner, accompanied by a most terrific yell from the savages, although two of the party encamped were on guard at the time. An immense quan- tity of weapons, consisting of spears, clubs, waddies, &c, were all at once thrown by the blacks, many of which struck the trees about the encampment with great force, several of them being barked. After throwing these weapons, the blacks instantly rushed off at full speed. Several of the white party were slightly wounded. The stockman who was reported in our last as killed was badly wounded in the head, and was delirious for some days, but is now recoveri...

SYDNEY NEWS. (From our Correspondent.) Thursday evening. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 16 September 1843

SYDNEY NEWS. (From our Correspondent.) Thursday evening. A sailing match came off yesterday, between the sailing boats Dodger and Corsair, when the Breeze (a small yacht in attendance at the match) was capsized in a squall near Bradley's Head, and two lives were lost. One of the bodies, that of Mr. Batten, was picked up, and an inquest was held on it this afternoon, when a verdict of accidental death was returned. By the evidence adduced on the inquest, it appeared that a brig, with a pilot astern, passed within a very short distance of the spot where the acci- dent occurred, but did not render the least assistance, although the crew of the pilot-boat might with ease have rescued the unfortunate men from, their watery grave. The jury have taken a special notice of this fact in their ver- dict, requesting the coroner to give the matter a full investigation, with the view, if possible, of punishing the parties who were guilty of such abominable inhumanity. With this request the corone...

THE MAITLAND MERCURY. SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 16, 1843. EXTENSION OF THE COUNCIL AND THE CONSTITUENCY. WE are glad to perceive that Dr. Lang has given notice of his intention to move, on Thursday next, a series of resolutions with a view to the improvement of the present system of representation. We know of no member of the Council better qualified to do justice to this important subject than Dr. Lang, and all classes of the colonists are under an obligation to him for the very prompt manner in which he has brought the subject under consideration. We beg to suggest to Dr. Lang the propriety of endeavouring at the same time to remove those vexatious and unnecessary restrictions with which the present law is encumbered, and through the operation of which many persons who were in justice entitled to the franchise were deprived of their right at the late election. We allude more particularly to the removal and joint occupancy clauses. Some well-defined standard ought also to be established ...

DISTRICT COUNCIL. TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 12. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 16 September 1843

DISTRICT COUNCIL TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 12. Present :-E. C. Close, Esq., Warden, Messrs. Wyndham, Lang, Innes, Gordon, and Hunger- ford. BUSINESS OF THE COUNCIL. The WARDEN said though the duties of the Council would not at present be very onerous, as without money little could be done, it would, nevertheless, be as well to make preparations for any call that the government might make upon them, and to put things into a train for making the assessment. Mr. WYNDHAM said that with respect to the office of district surveyor, though the act directed that a surveyor should be appointed, he thought it would hardly be necessary to appoint one for the present, as his services would not be required. The WARDEN said as several applications had been made for the various offices he thought it would be better for the council to name those whom they might think the most proper persons to fill them, in order to put the other applicants out of suspense. CLERK OF COUNCIL. The WARDEN then read applicatio...

A. Company, were charged with being out after hours. They were both found guilty, and sentenced to two months hard labour. JERRY'S PLAINS. THE CROPS.-The crops maintain their flour- ishing appearance, and there is every prospect of an abundant harvest. It is to be hoped the superabundance of grain will not induce wasteful habits with the farmer ; but, looking back upon the periods of scarcity in past times, that he will provide in these years of plenty for the years of   comparative famine that may be ex...
