BRITISH EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 7 October 1843
BRITISH EXTRACTS. REMARKABLE TENACITY OF LIFE.-The State Gazette of Stockholm contains a long account of a singular fact which occurred at Elfsburgs Lehn in April last. A poor tailor, travelling in that part of Sweden, accidentally fell into a coal- pit, and remained there for the space of 39 days without food. At the date of the 27th December he was stated to be doing well, though in a very feeble state. In establishing a market in China, it is observed that the extension of our trade will in a great measure depend upon adapting our fabrics in shape and size to the prejudices of the people. From Cape Comorin to the Ganges the Hindoo women are clothed in one uncut piece of cloth, about seven yards long, and one wide, of colours and patterns which time and custom have rendered indispensable. Numerous factories have sprung up, within the last few years, throughout the northeastern districts of Ireland, for the preparation of flaxen thread, and the cultivation of the raw material has b...

To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 7 October 1843
To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. GENTLEMEN-An occasionally erratic move- ment may be readily overlooked in the wisest legislator, but persevering and systematic hos- tility to the wishes, wants, and interests of a constituency demand notice and redress. It is not without feelings of regret and pain that a reflection of this sort forces itself upon the conviction, on a review of the hitherto short career of our Legislative Council, in connexion with the name of the learned and honorable member for Northumberland, W. Foster, Esq. Anxious as I ' am to avoid hasty judgment, I cannot but strongly suspect that this gentleman has either mistaken his constituency, or that his constituency are mistaken in him. Happily for the extinction of political strife in this southern hemisphere, the names of Whig and Tory are almost banished from its political vocabulary; and well would it be if the animus of party were in like manner expelled from our national council-that the cloven foot were ...

THE MAITLAND MERCURY. SATURDAY, OCTOBER 7, 1843. THE ESTIMATES. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 7 October 1843
THE MAITLAND MERCURY. SATURDAY, OCTOBER 7, 1843. THE ESTIMATES. THE consideration of the Estimates has proceeded in much the same style and spirit in which it was commenced; and we fear there is little chance of much practical benefit being derived by the people from the labours of their representatives in this most important branch of their duties during the present session. Much of this may be attributed to the wily policy of the government party in defeating Mr. Walker's motion for the appointment of a committee. The Council has certainly succeeded in curtailing the charges for some of the departments, but we doubt much whether there will be any real economy in the reductions made. The principle on which they have been effected is, we think, very objectionable. We were opposed to Mr. &nbsp; Wentworths resolution for reducing the salaries of the government officers ac- cording to a certain graduated scale, and still more to Mr. Walker's proposition, as involving a degree o...
LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 21, 1843. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 7 October 1843
LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 21, 1843. In our last we stated that the discussion upon &nbsp; Mr. Windeyer's amendment for reducing the salary of the Collector of Customs to £800 per annum was going on at the close of our correspondent's letter. The debate was con- tinued for some time, and ultimately Mr COWPER proposed as a further amendment that the amount of the whole department should be reduced twenty per cent., leaving the executive to decide in what way the reduction Should be made. After a few observations, the amend- ment proposed by Mr. Cowper, which was to substitute the sum Of £7531 15s. 7d. tor the sum of £9414, was put, and carried by a majority of fifteen. The Council then adjourned. FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 29. Mr. WENTWORTH moved an address to the Governor requesting certain returns connected with the Water Police department; and the Colonial Secretary and the Colonial Treasurer were appointed to present the address to his Excellency. The house then resol...

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. WHERE WAS THE MAJOR? To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 7 October 1843
ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. WHERE WAS THE MAJOR? To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. GENTLEMEN-Several friends of mine have been very anxiously inquiring where our repre- sentative, the Major, was during the greater part of the debates on the Estimates in the Council chamber. Do you know? They think he might as well have been at the sport when his brother was ferreting out the official ratholes, assisted so ably by that active little terrier from Durham, and the sharp, wiry Scotch terrier from Port Phillip. His constituents do not thank him for his vote in favour of the Governor's aide-de- camp, and strongly advise him not to be led away by the blarney of Mr. Commissioner Therry. -Your obedient servant, BOB SHORT. Maitland, October 5, 1843.

HUNTER RIVER DISTRICT NEWS. [FROM OUR CORRESPONDENTS.] NEWCASTLE. POLICE OFFICE.-MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 25. (Before Major Crummer, P.M., and Captain Armstrong, J.P.) ESCAPE FROM NOBBY'S ISLAND.- William Thorp, a convict in irons at Nobby's Island, was charged with making his escape from the island on the 23rd September. Robert Backop, a soldier in the 99th regiment, deposed that he saw the prisoner and another convict in the water off Nobby's Island, making for the North Shore; he called out several times to them to return. Thorp returned, but the other prisoner, whose name was William Brennan, was shot at by the guard. The shot struck Brennan, and witness saw him sink, and his body has not yet been recovered. Thorp was conveyed to the lockup to answer the charge of escaping from the Island. The bench found the prisoner guilty, and he was sentenced to receive one hundred lashes. The prisoner said he would do his best to escape from Nobby's, or perish in the attempt. &nbsp; &a...
COMMERCIAL REMARKS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 7 October 1843
COMMERCIAL REMARKS. No sign of improvement in business in this district has yet been evinced. Everything, in fact, appears to be as dull as it well can be. There is no alteration whatever in the prices of any kinds of grain or farm produce, and very little is indeed brought into the market. All the storekeepers complain of the great dearth of money, scarcely anything been done for cash. Butter appears to be very plentiful, and is selling at from 6d. to 1s. per lb. A good deal has lately been purchased for the Sydney market. The prices of nearly all articles of consumption remain stationary.

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 — 7 October 1843
SYDNEY NEWS. WHOLESALE PRICES OF COLONIAL FARM AND DAIRY PRODUCE IN THE SYDNEY MARKET, DURING THE PRESENT WEEK. WHEAT AND FLOUR.-There is at present no alteration, although a cargo of each has arrived during the week from South America ; it is not yet sold, so that whether it will affect the market or not cannot at present be ascertained. MAIZE is still selling at from 1s 9d to 2s for very best samples. There has not been so much sent in to the market this week as usual ; I fear it is useless settlers holding on, for I do not think it is likely to be higher in price before the weevil will get into it, which will of course reduce its value. BARLEY AND OATS are only selling in small quantities, at 2s 6d per bushel ; unless very prime samples of malting barley, which may be worth 3s. It is now getting late for malting. BRAN.-There is a little alteration in the price this week ; it may be quoted at £5 to £5 10s, according to quality. HAY-Oaten and Lucerne-Is still about the same price ;...

DISTRICT COUNCIL. TUESDAY, OCTOBER 3. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 7 October 1843
DISTRICT COUNCIL TUESDAY, OCTOBER 3. Present :-The Warden, Mr. Innes, Mr. Lang, and Captain Hungerford. CLERK. The WARDEN read a letter applying for the situation of clerk, in the event of Mr. Chambers's resignation, and said that he was not quite certain how Mr. Chambers intended to act, but as none of the officers could act until the Council ordered them to do so, the best way would be to allow the matter to rest, and if necessary to advertise in the Maitland Mercury for applications, and fix a day for the con- sideration of such applications as might be received. In the meantime he (the Warden) would willingly perform what little duty was required until the appointment was made. ASSESSMENT. The WARDEN then read the following (e Report of the Sub-Committee on arrangements for Assessment. " 1. It is the opinion of the sub-committee of the District Council that two assessors be appointed to value the properties belonging to the district. "' 2. That the assessors be instructed to val...

HUNTER RIVER DISTRICT NEWS. [FROM OUR CORRESPONDENTS.] SINGLETON. THE DISTRICT COUNCIL.-We are much gratified at the determination of the Dis- trict Council to go carefully and economically to work ; and we do think so long as they main- tain that determination they will meet with little opposition, at all events none from the people of this town who, generally speaking, are more in favour of District Councils than against them, provided some very objectionable clauses in the act were removed. SCHOOL EXAMINATION.-On Thursday, the 28th September, an examination of the children under the tuition of Mr. J. J. Walsh, at the Catholic school, Singleton, was conducted by the Rev. J. J. Lynch, in the presence of the parents of the children and such of the inhabitants as took an interest in the well-being of the institu- tion.
