MAITLAND CIRCUIT COURT. SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 16, 1843. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 19 September 1843

MAITLAND CIRCUIT COURT. SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 16, 1843. His Honor took his seat upon the bench at ten o'clock, and the jury having been called, Michael Kelly was placed at the bar, and indicted for the wilful murder of Duncan M'Gillavray, at Paterson, by beating him on the head with a stick, on the 24th of June last; from the effects of which he died on the 28th of the same month. The Attorney General conducted the prosecution. Mr. Purefoy appeared for the prisoner, solicitor, Mr Chambers. The Attorney General opened the proceedings by stating that the prisoner was charged with the murder of Duncan M'Gillavray. There were a number of witnesses to be examined, some of whom, only, would identify the prisoner as the man who struck the blow, but they would all agree in stating that the deceased had come by his death in consequence of blows which he received at Paterson on the 24th June last. The question material to the prisoner was, whether he was the person who gave the blows. The decea...

THE MAITLAND MERCURY. SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 23, 1843. DISTRICT COUNCILS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 23 September 1843

THE MAITLAND MERCURY, SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 23, 1843. DISTRICT COUNCILS. WE perceive that Mr. Foster presented the petition from the police district of Maitland, on the subject of the District Councils, on Wednesday last. We regret that the hon. member did not give notice of his intention to move, on an early day, that the petition be taken into consideration. This course would, at once, bring the sub- ject before the Council in its general bearings, instead of allowing the various objections which have been urged against the establishment of the District Councils, in their present form, to be frittered away piecemeal. We earnestly call upon the hon. member for Northumberland to give notice of his intention to bring the prayer of the petition under the consideration of the Council on an early day. THE ESTIMATES. ON Tuesday last the Legislative Council entered upon the consideration of the Estimates for 1844. When the Council rejected Mr. Walker's judicious proposal for referring the E...

The members who did not answer to their names were Mr. Condell and the Attorney General, both absent on leave; the Colonial Secretary and Mr. Lawson, absent from illness ; Mr. Bland and Mr. Therry, both of whom entered the house shortly after business commenced. POLICE AND GAOL EXPENSES. Dr. NICHOLSON moved an address to the Governor relative to expiree convicts, of which he had given notice, which was adopted without opposition, and the Colonial Treasurer and the Auditor General were appointed to present it to his Excellency. USURY BILL. Mr. WENTWORTH then rose to move the second reading of the bill to regulate the interest on money, in a very long and elaborate speech, in which he replied to the objections urged by Mr. Bentham against usury laws, contending that arguments which would hold good with regard to England, and other European countries...

MATILAND CIRCUIT COURT. THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 14. CIVIL BUSINESS. (Chamber Business.) PILCHER V. BRIGGS.-This was a case of disputed property which had been seized by the sheriff under an execution. The property was claimed by the trustee of Charles Robins, an insolvent, and by Briggs, the defendant in the action. After hearing the question on both sides, his Honor made an order by consent of both parties directing the sheriff to sell the property on such terms as he might think best, and to pay the money into court to abide the issue of the action, the only question in the issue raised to be, whether the property was the property of the defendant, or of Rattray, the insolvent's trustee, and the amount of the verdict to be the amount paid into court by the sheriff. His Honor also directed that Mr. Pilcher should be plaintiff in the case, and Mr. Rattray, trustee of the insolvent Charles Robins, the defendant, so that both the insolvent and the defendant Briggs might be competent witne...

HUNTER RIVER DISTRICT NEWS. [FROM OUR CORRESPONDENTS.] NEWCASTLE. POLICE OFFICE.-TUESDAY, SEPT. 19. Before Major Crummer, P.M., and Captain Armstrong, J.P.) William Hargreaves, per John Barry, an as- signed servant of the A. A. Company, was arraigned on a charge of misdemeanour. John James, a prisoner, also in the service of the above company, deposed that on Friday last he was employed with the accused in a paddock, cutting wood ; and that, on observing Hargreaves neglecting his work by sitting down, he said to him, " Why don't you rise, and go to your work;" on which the prisoner jumped up hastily, and seizing his axe, exclaimed, "I'll cleave your - head off your body," and, suiting the action to the word, he made a blow with the axe at the head of witness, who jumped aside to avoid receiving the blow. The prisoner then a second time attempted to strike him (James) with the axe, but he ran away to the residence of Mr. Latham, an overseer, and re- ported what had happened, when 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 — 23 September 1843

SYDNEY NEWS. WHOLESALE PRICES OF COLONIAL FARM AND DAIRY PRODUCE IN THE SYDNEY MARKET, DURING THE PRESENT WEEK. WHEAT.-There is no alteration in the price of wheat. Several lots have arrived from Van Diemen's Land, but mostly remain unsold. The prices may be quoted from 4s to 4s 6d. FLOUR still continues the same ; no alteration whatever. MAIZE is still very dull of sale, and 2s is the highest price obtainable for the very best sample ; inferior will only realise 1s 6d to 1s 9d. Even at these low prices there are no buyers of large quantities, and the only sales effected are small lots, just as they are required. CAPE BARLEY.-None in the market ; a few enquiries have been made for small lots for seed. ENGLISH BARLEY, for malting, is worth from 2s 6d to 3s, if a prime sample, and well cleaned. HAY-Oaten and Lucerne.-Oaten hay of the best quality is worth from £4 15s to £5 per ton, being the same price as the best samples of Van Diemen's Land. Lucerne, if very good and well saved, is ...

COMMERCIAL REMARKS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 23 September 1843

COMMERCIAL REMARKS. During the last week or two there has been a slight improvement in business ; still, very little has been done in Maitland, comparatively speaking, which may be in some measure owing to the very heavy state of the roads from the late rains, which has prevented the settlers from coming into town. There has, however, been no advance whatever in the price of farm produce. Maize has a slight tendency down- wards. The price of wheat continues stationary. Butter is selling at from 8d. to 10d. per lb., and poultry and eggs are selling at merely nominal prices. Butcher's meat has again attained its former price of from 1½d. to 2d. per lb. Flour, bread, and other provisions remain without any alteration.

MAITLAND CIRCUIT COURT. TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 19. SENTENCES. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 23 September 1843

MAITLAND CIRCUIT COURT. TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 19. SENTENCES. His Honor took his seat upon the bench at half past nine o'clock, and Michael Kelly, John McDonald, Lachlan M'Lucas, and James Young, were placed at the bar for sentence. The prisoners were separately called upon to know if they had anything to say why judgment should not be passed upon them, but they all remained silent. His Honor first addressed the prisoners M'Lucas and M'Donald. He said they had been convicted of an offence which on reflection they must see was of a most serious nature, and it was the more necessary to make an example in the case, as being the first of the kind which had occurred. Such scenes endangered men in the exercise of their highest privileges, and it was important to the character of the colony and its inhabitants that the actors should be punished. McDonald was not a free man; he therefore had no business at the election. His position in life did not take him there. M'Lucas was not a voter, and h...
