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-The late emigrations of me- chanics and labourers from this colony to distant and foreign parts, are amongst the worst features of our present distress. The effort formerly made to bring out these persons from the mother country was a reasonable anticipation of the important part they were destined to perform in raising this colony in the scale of "nations. It is a painful truth that our first schemes have proved abortive, and that our horizon is at present much clouded : but it is bad policy, on these accounts, to part with the materials of a new structure. There will be a crisis; and we would hope it is not very distant, when our affairs must take a turn, and when new facilities will present to every class the means of improve- ment. But to what purpose will this be, if in the meantime we lose the labourer and the mechanic ? These are the very sinews of the state ; and it will be found that a community, constituted as we are, can n...

"Parturiuntur montes et nascitur ridiculus mus." To Justitia. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 7 October 1843

" Parturiuntur montes et nascitur ridiculus mus.' To Justitia. SIR-The abortive offspring of your genius and panegyric in last Saturday's Mercury pos- sesses all the attractions peculiar to diminutive nature-indeed, parva leves cupiunt ánimos and hence our motive for rejoinder. You say there is three constables at the Mac- donald, and three here (Wollombi), and you imply that they are inefficient, from their paucity, to discharge the district duties ; and you then remark that " too much praise cannot be bestowed upon our worthy police magistrate for his exertions in the public service whenever occasion requires it." Now, verbum sapienti, which you are aware translates, a word to a wise man, and to show you that we write in charity, we shall pass over the small ungrammatical escapades of your letter, and analyse its sub- stance, Justitia, the whole of the constabulary force, which, according to the annual vote of the legislature, consists of 8 persons, is at the disposal of the polic...

WESLEYAN TEA PARTY. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 14 October 1843

WESLEYAN TEA PARTY. On Wednesday evening last a number of the members of the Wesleyan Methodist Connexion and their friends partook of tea in the Wesleyan Centenary Chapel, High-street. From one hun- dred and sixty to a hundred and seventy persons were present, and all the tables were plentifully heaped with the good things of life; the ar- rangements were such as reflected great credit upon the committee of management, every person present being well supplied with an abundance. The choir of the chapel was in attendance, and during the evening sung a number of hymns, in a very effective and scientific manner. After tea was over, the Rev. Mr. Lewis was called to the chair. He said he felt highly gratified at the numerous assembly he saw before him ; the principal object of the meeting was to endeavour to liquidate the debt which still re- mained upon the chapel. The religious services of the Wesleyans were commenced in Maitland some years ago, in a room, but they met with so much enc...

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. SNUBBING AND ANTI-SNUBBING. To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. Gentlemen-I am one of those who, while working away with my neighbours in this beau- tiful world of ours, endeavour as we go along to get as much fun out of them as possible. Amongst other amusing items, it is very amusing to observe how the various grades of our colonial society are continually striving upwards, and as continually snubbing each other in their attempts. My friend Jack is irate that his quondam acquaintance William Ordinary, having got up in life a small trifle, cannot some- times see him when he meets him in the streets. William Ordinary talks loudly of Mr. Good, who was once a chum of his, having entirely forgotten him now he has a handle to his name. Mr. Good cannot contain himself at the upstart insolence of some people, when Mr. Better doesn't nod to him as he used to do; said Mr. Better being just striving hard to get Esquire tacked to his name by every body. Mr. Better...

WOOL[?] [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 14 October 1843

WOOL Intelligence has been received at Launceston from England to the 30th June, from which it appears that at the Liverpool wool sales in June there was a very numerous attendance. The Australian wools were of a superior description, and in better condition, and more free of burrs and other impurities, than for several years past. Throughout there was an animated competition, and the result waa an advance of 1½d per lb. on the last sales.

THE MAITLAND MERCURY. SATURDAY, OCTOBER 14, 1843. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 14 October 1843

THE MAITLAND MEECURY. SATURDAY, OCTOBER 14, 1843. THE GAOL AT EAST MAITLAND. From an advertisement in another column it will be seen that a meeting of the inha- bitants of this district is to be held at the Court-house, East Maitland, on Monday next, for the purpose of petitioning the Legislative Council that the above gaol may be proceeded with at once. So many circumstances tend to point out the present as a peculiarly favorable time for carrying on this public work with vigour, that we apprehend there can hardly be any legi- timate ground for denying the prayer of the petitioners. The petition ought, how- ever, we think, to be addressed to the Governor in Council, and not to the Legislative Council. The sums of £3000 and £2000, for the years 1843 and 1844 respectively, having been voted for this purpose by the legislature, the appro- priation and expenditure of this money rests entirely with the executive govern- ment. The Council might be solicited to present an address to his E...

LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. Thursday, October 5. ESTIMATES. At the close of our correspondent's com- munication in our last, the Colonial Secretary had just proposed that the sum of £2513 17s. should be voted to defray the expenses of public works at Port Phillip. Upon this Mr. Windeyer moved an amend- ment that the sum of £2088 6s., required by the employment of prisoners, should be struck out ; and after a short discussion this amendment was carried, leaving the amount voted £424 11s. The following sums were then voted : Towards the erection of a court house at Melbourne, £1000; towards building a police court and offices at Portland, £1500 ; towards building a watch-house at Portland, a further sum of £800 ; towards building a custom house at Geelong, £200. The Colonial Secretary then moved that the sum of £4000 might be voted for other public buildings and works in the Port Phillip district for the ensuing year. Mr. Windeyer proposed that this item be struck out, unless the government ...

James Pickle was indicted for stealing an axletree, the property of George Hobler, on the 10th July last. A second count in the indict- ment laid the articles as being the property of Archibald Campbell. Mr. Purefoy appeared for the prisoner; soli- citor, Mr. Turner. Mr. G. Hobler was sworn, and stated that he had observed the prisoner driving a new dray, which he admired for its great strength, and saw at once that the axletree arms were a pair which he had, about six weeks before, had stolen from a stone truck in his quarry, where it had been in use for upwards of two years ; he obtained a search warrant on the following day, and went to the prisoner's residence, where he again saw the dray, and on one of the wheels being taken off, he at once identified the axle as his own, from its very pe...
