ORIGINAL POETRY. ON INTELLECTUAL PRIDE AND SELFEXAGGERATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 30 September 1843

ORIGINAL POETRY. ON INTELLECTUAL PRIDE AND SELF- EXAGGERATION. There is an enemy that dwells Hid in the chambers of the mind, That chains religion down, and swells Ambition into scorn of kind, And makes all just regards, like fabled Justice, blind. Thus ruled,even thought outlaws the soul, And knowledge is a dangerous thing, That, like the spirit of the bowl, Illumines all our power to sting   More bitterly and deep with after suffering. Thus ruled, 'tis fearful but to know That want of principle is power ; And thus in wisdom's soil may grow Temptations for the evil hour That stings with signal loss, or rains the golden shower. And thus was one's destruction wrought Whose memory lives in mighty verse ; Thus a weak worm became in thought The centre of the universe A scorner of his God-a coward and a curse ! A coward ! for even such is he   Who is irresolute for truth, And dares not in our nature see The germ of an immortal youth, To bloom beyond this scene of wickedness ...

THE MAITLAND MERCURY. SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 30, 1843. COLONIAL WINE. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 30 September 1843

THE MAITLAND MEECURY, SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 30, 1843. COLONIAL WINE. A PETITION, which we trust will be   numerously signed, has been going the   round of the Hunter, Paterson, and Wil- liam district, for presentation to our Legis- lative Council, praying that all restrictions may be taken off the sale of wines of colonial growth. The wine growers, as a     class, may soon be expected to hold an important rank in the colony. No question now exists as to the vital importance of cultivating the vine, as one of the staple sources of our national wealth, and it is short-sighted legislation that would main- tain impediments in the way of developing so valuable a branch of Colonial industry. The object of the old council in the matter of restrictions on the sale of colonial-made wine was no doubt partly financial and partly moral. The experience of all past legislation goes to show that men will not be made virtuous by legislative enactmen...

HUNTER RIVER DISTRICT NEWS. [FROM OUR CORRESPONDENTS.] WOLLOMBI. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 30 September 1843

HUNTER RIVER DISTRICT NEWS. [FROM OUR CORRESPONDENTS.] WOLLOMBI. POLICE OFFICE.-On Friday, the 15th instant, James Fletcher, free, a tenant residing upon the land of David ap Davis, appeared before the police court on summons, charged on the oath of Mr. Davis's wife with assaulting her in the dwelling house of defendant on a previous day. Although the charge of assault was unsustained, the defendant was required to find bail to keep the peace, or to stand committed until such bail was procured. The absence of this man's friends, and indeed of any other parties, from the police office, except the prosecutrix, her husband, and the usual constabulary, caused his immediate removal to prison, on which the prosecutor prayed the interference of the magis- trate in removing Fletcher from his tenure. Failing in this application, he (Davis) preferred a charge of cattle stealing against him, of which the following is the substance :-That in July last Fletcher slaughtered a white cow in a mount...

LETTERS ON THE STATE AND PROSPECTS OF THE COLONY. (Addressed to a Friend in Great Britain.) No. 1. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 30 September 1843

LETTERS ON THE STATE AND PROS- PECTS OF THE COLONY.   (Addressed to a Friend in Great Britain.) No. 1. MY DEAR-1 In fulfilment of my pro- mise to give you a detailed account of the almost unparalleled commercial distress from which this colony is now suffering, I will begin by mentioning what, in my opinion is the original and primary cause that has produced all our misfortunes ; and, strange though it may appear, I am persuaded that the great prosperity which this country for many years enjoyed, and the great advantages which she once presented, and still continues to present, to the monied adven- turer, is the real origin to which our present calamitous condition may be traced. For it was our real wealth and prosperity that brought speculators and money lenders among us, and it was by the united operations of these two classes of persons that we have been involved in so great distress. Even in the colony much difference of opinion exists with regard to the source of t...

SYDNEY NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 30 September 1843

SYDNEY NEWS. DISTRICT COUNCILS.-The Windsor District Council had a meeting on Wednesday, the 20th instant. Only two of the members were present, besides the Warden. No business was transacted, but in the course of conversation the Warden said he had had an interview with his Excellency who had informed him that it was his impression at first that the qualification for councillors was too high, and subsequent events had confirmed that opinion, and he was about to introduce a bill into the Legislative Council for the purpose of rectifying this. The Warden had also spoken to his Excellency respecting some assistance being given to the Council in the shape of police fees and fines, tolls, ferry dues, Sec, to which his Excellency had made no objection, but had stated most decisively that he would not grant the revenue arising from publicans' licenses, as he considered that by giving them over to the District Councils it might be the means of increasing drunkenness and immorality, and he ...

ENGLISH NEWS. Intelligence from England has been received, via Port Phillip, to the 3rd of June. The state of affairs in Ireland appeared to be very precarious in consequence of the repeal agitation. The government were despatching troops, arms, and ammunition to Dublin and other towns with all possible activity. Twenty five thousand stand of arms had been sent over in five days. Lord Ffrench had been dismissed from the magistracy for presiding at a repeal meeting. The opposition to the education clauses of the Factory Bill continued as violent as ever. An act to regulate the granting of pardons and tickets of leave had received the royal assent. It enables ticket of leave holders to possess property, and bring actions, but in case of a ticket of leave being revoked such property to vest in the crown. The act to take effect from the date of its proclamation. The long expected rupture in the church of Scotland had taken place. The General Assembly met on the 7th May, when Dr. Welsh, ...

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. "Naught extenuate, nor aught set down in malice." [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 30 September 1843

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. "Naught extenuate, nor aught set down in malice." GENTLEMEN-On looking over your paper of the 9th instant, my attention was attracted by some remarks of yours relative to " outrages committed by the blacks on the Barwin," which, as is usual, pictured the unfortunate aborigines of this country in very unfavourable colours. It is to be regretted that the blacks do some- times commit depredations on life and property, but that they should always be in the wrong, and be the aggressors in every bloody conflict that occurs between them and the whites, is not at all probable. If they could but communicate through the press, or otherwise, their grievances, if they could bring to light the numerous wrongs to which they are frequently subjected by the whites, then surely the persecuting spirit ever evinced by the press, as well as by a large portion of the public, towards them, would be measur- ably appeased. As a people, we hav...
