LETTERS ON THE STATE AND PROSPECTS OF THE COLONY. (Addressed to a Friend in Great Britain.) No. II. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 14 October 1843
LETTERS ON THE STATE AND PROS- PECTS OF THE COLONY. (Addressed to a Friend in Great Britain.) No. II. MY' Dear----:-In my last I mentioned that there was a great influx of English capital into this colony between the years 1834 and 1842, and showed the effects of that circum- stance upon our commercial condition in stimu- lating speculation, and introducing a dangerous system of giving almost unlimited credit, and I wish you now more particularly to observe the consequent rapid advance of prices. One simple sentence can explain the whole mystery of our embarrassments: we purchased property at high prices, and with long credit, the market value of which had greatly dimi- nished, if indeed it had not become entirely unsaleable, when the time to pay for it had arrived. Take, for example, sheep--sales were effected at £1, £1 5s., and £1 10s., and payment was made in a series of bills, some of which would not be due for two or three years. As these bills were advancing to maturity prices...
SYDNEY NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 14 October 1843
SYDNEY NEWS. A new paper called the " Sydney Record" was published on Saturday last. It is much the same as the Colonial Observer in size and appearance. It appears to be a supporter of the Church of England, and to be conducted on the princip'es of moderate conservatism. It is a weekly journal. A petition to the Legislative Council has been got up in Sydney by the leading members of the Church of England, against Dr. Lang's resolu- tions on public education. Statement of the various descriptions of grain held by the government on the 1st October : Wheat, 39,014 bushels ; maize, 6,640 bushels. On Saturday last Dr. Shearer, of Pitt-street, was tried in the supreme court, before Mr. Justice Burton, on a charge of setting fire to his house in Pitt-street. - Messrs. Foster and Win- deyer conducted the prosecution. Messrs. Therry, Broadhurst, and Michie appeared for the. defence. After a trial which lasted until eleven o'clock at night, the jury returned a verdict of not guilty, and the ...
PORT PHILLIP. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 14 October 1843
PORT PHILLIP. On the 28th September a land sale was held at the survey office, Melbourne, when eight coun- try lots, ranging from 165 to 215 acres, in the parishes of Merrinno and Korkuperrimul, were put up, but there were no bidders. One suburban allotment at Corner Inlet, containing 180 acres, was knocked down to Major Davidson at the upset price, £1 per acre. The Right Rev. the Bishop of Australia arrived at Geelong per the Rajah on the 26th September. He was expected to be in Melbourno on Monday, the 9th October. The Geelong Advertiser states that the last arrival from Van Diemen's Land brings the &nbsp; gratifying news of Port Phillip sheep selling rapidly at sixteen shillings a head. Port Essington.-We understand that Sir Gordon Bremer is appointed Lieutenant Go- vernor at Port Essington. It is contemplated to augment the establishment there, and to hold out some inducements to emigrants. A good deal of attention is attracted to this project in London, and an elaborate...

COMMERCIAL REMARKS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 21 October 1843
COMMERCIAL REMARKS. We have again to report that there is no im- provement whatever in business; everything appears to be as dull as ever. Scarcely any produce is now brought into Maitland by the settlers, and it is probable that a greater amount of business will not be transacted until the harvest is over. The prices of most articles are merely nominal; money being so extremely scarce that every one is ready to sell for whatever his articles will fetch.

THE MAITLAND MERCURY. SATURDAY, OCTOBER 21, 1843. MAITLAND DISTRICT GAOL. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 21 October 1843
THE MAITLAND MERCURY, SATURDAY, OCTOBER 21, 1843. &nbsp; MAITLAND DISTRICT GAOL. We were well pleased to see so large an attendance on Monday last at the meeting for petitioning the government and Legis- lative Council that the gaol at East Mait- land may be at once proceeded with. The petitions have been very numerously signed, and will be forwarded for presentation in a day or two. We cannot, however, allow the oppor- tunity to pass without entering into some details to show that the request of the petitioners, in praying that the sum of £3000 voted last year be immediately &nbsp; expended, is just and reasonable. By a reference to the late census it will be seen that the population of the district within the jurisdiction of the Maitland Circuit Court consisted of 21,729 persons; and allowing since that time an increase of one-fifth, it may now be estimated at 26,074. The population of the Berrima district in 1841, as near as we can ascer- tain, was 16,978; making ...

EXECUTION. On Wednesday last the sentence of the law was carried into effect on the two aborigines Melville and Harry, who were convicted at the late assizes of the murder of Michael Keoghue, at Stanhope, near Glendon. The two prisoners were since the time of their comdemnation attended by the Rev. Mr. Wilton, of Newcastle, and there was reason for believing that they had profited by his instructions. They were brought up to Maitland for execution by the steamer on Tuesday last, and lodged in one of the empty boxes in the new gaol yard, where they were attended by the Rev. Mr. Wilton and the Rev. Mr. Campbell. They both expressed their sorrow for the crime they had committed, and appeared to lend a willing ear to the ministra- tions of the rev. gentlemen who attended them. The time for, their execution was fixed at twelve o'clock, and previous to that hour a large concourse of people bad assembled in front of fhe gaol wall at East Maitland, where a gallows was erected for the execut...
