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 — 21 October 1843
SYDNEY NEWS. WHOLESALE PRICES OF COLONIAL FARM AND DAIRY PRODUCE IN THE SYDNEY MARKET, DURING THE PRESENT WEEK. WHEAT.-=There have been lately several &nbsp; &nbsp; arrivals from Hobart Town, and one from South America; the cargo of the latter still remains unsold. V. D. Land has been fetching from 4s to 4s 6d ; a prime sample was bought in to-day at auction at 4s 6d. The agents for the South American wheat are holding out for a higher price than can be obtained for Derwent wheat, which they are not likely to get. MAIZE has been plentiful during the week ; about 10,000 bushels have arrived, which realised 1s 6d to 1s 10d, according to sample. I fear there are no hopes of any material rise at present. BARLEY AND OATS.-No alteration. HAY.-Oaten is worth from £4 to £4 10s, but it must be very good to obtain that price. I would particularly recommend settlers on the Hunter to put up their hay in small trusses, say from 1 to 2 cwt. each, and not to exceed the latter ; the...
ENGLISH NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 21 October 1843
ENGLISH NEWS. By the arrival of the Hydrabad on Tuesday last, we have English news to the 1st July. Sir James Graham had withdrawn the educational clauses in the Factory Bill, in consequence of the opposition made to them by the Catholics and dissenters. The intelligence of the cession of the Sand- wich Islands had reached England. The rise in wool appears to have been only temporary, the average of the last London sales being 1½d. per lb. under those of Liverpool; the price was about the same as in February last. Trade was in a much better state than it had been in for some time previously. The repeal agitation continued to attract considerable attention ; a repeal dinner had been given at Mellow, which was numerously attended, and at which Mr. O'Connell delivered a lengthy address, which was received in a most enthu- siastic manner. The leading repeal journals were advocating the cause very warmly, and urging the repeal of the union under any circumstances. The agitation appeared ...

MAITLAND COUNTY GAOL. - PUBLIC MEETING. On Monday last a public meeting of the inhabitants of the district of Maitland was held at the court house, East Maitland, for the pur- pose of adopting petitions to his Excellency the Governor and to the Legislative Council praying that the county gaol at East Maitland might be proceeded with at once. There was a numerous attendance, and E. D. Day, Esq., P.M., was called to the chair. The CHAIRMAN having read the requisition upon which the meeting had been convened, said he should be happy to receive any resolu- tions which the gentlemen present had to propose for furthering the object they had in view. Mr. P. J. COHEN said he had been requested to propose the first resolution, though he saw himself surrounded by many persons who were capable of doing more justice to it than himself, but he did not wish to be backward when called upon by the inhabitants in any measure for the benefit of the district. He would read the resolution:-"That in the...

NEWCASTLE. - PUBLIC MEETING A public meeting of the inhabitants of New- castle, called by the police magistrate, at the re- quisition of several of the householders, was held on Monday, October 9th, at the new court house, for the purpose of petitioning the Legislative Council to grant the return of a member of council from Newcastle, and to recommend that Newcastle be a free warehousing port.

HUNTER RIVER DISTRICT NEWS. [FROM OUR CORRESPONDENTS.] MERTON. DISTRICT COUNCIL. A meeting of the District Council of Merton was held on Wednesday, October 11th. Present -W. Ogilvie, Esq., warden ; Francis Forbes, David Forbes, James Robertson, and George Blaxland, Esqrs. Mr. D. FORBES proposed the following resolution :-"That as it appears from the &nbsp; proceedings of the Legislative Council that the district will not be called upon to levy any sum for the expense of the police during the ensuing year, the appointment of district officers is there- fore at present unnecessary, and in the present state of the country any appointment involving expense is highly inexpedient."

FORBES seconded the resolution, which was adopted. &nbsp; Mr. -BLAXLAND proposed that t...

BENEVOLENT ASYLUM. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 28 October 1843
BENEVOLENT ASYLUM. A meeting "of the friends and supporters of the Maitland Benevolent Asylum was held at the court-house', East Maitland, on Thursday last, the Rev. Mr. Stack in the chair. , The report drawn up by the sub-committee was read and received ; from which it appeared that to ensure the economical management of the charity, and from the unexpected withdrawal of those members of the committee to whom the principal superintendence of the institution had been hitherto entrusted, they had been compelled to remove the hospital to West Mait- land. A quarter's subscription was now due, and the charity was almost out of debt, and the committee congratulated the subscribers on its prospects, and had no doubt that the institution would be able to continue its useful operations. Since its establishment, forty-five persons have been admitted ; of whom 10 were children, and 3 women. Of these 45 persons, 1 was found drowned, 22 have been cured, 4 relieved, 4 sent to Sydney, 2 dismissed...

SYDNEY NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 28 October 1843
SYDNEY NEWS A letter has been received from a gentleman in London, who is intimate with the Colonial Office, which states that 5000 emigrants were to be embarked for this colony at the expense of the home government, and that the arrival of the first cargo may be looked for daily.-Weekly Register. It is said to be in contemplation to discharge a considerable number of the officers of the Customs department, and to abolish the establish- ment at Botany Bay. An order has been given not to board ships until they come alongside the wharfs. By a return presented to the Legislative Council, it appears that in the year 1842 Mr. Kerr, the chief commissioner of insolvent estates, after paying his clerks, printing, sta- tionery, and all other charges, cleared £1750, and this year he will probably clear as much. The reductions which have been already made on the amount proposed to be appropriated to defray the expenses of the various departments for 1844 exceed £73,000. Of this sum about £6,00...

THE CROWNING CHARM OF NATURE. (From the same.) Delightful 'tis to mark the morning rise Over the eastern summits, like a bride Blushing with the fond secret of the pride She dares to feel in him whose love supplies All her full soul desires ; and to the eyes Dear then the flowers in green concealment spied, And wet with dew : pleasant the shadowy side, At noon, of mountain towering to the skies : At eve, 'tis sweet to hear the breeze advance Through the responding forest, dense and tall ; And sweeter in the moonlight is the dance And natural music of the waterfall : But oh, 'mid these, from her we prize, a glance Of tender love's the crowning charm of all. Charles Harpur. Jerry's Plains, October, 1843.

THE DREAM. (From "Rosa; or the Hundred Sonnets of Love.") [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 28 October 1843
THE DREAM. (From "Rosa; or the Hundred Sonnets of Love.") In sleep with a sweet pang my brain was wrung, And straight methought I passed from life away To a far isle, whereon a brighter day Than ours came down—where fairer trees were hung With star-bright fruits, and deathless warblers sung, Unceasingly, a bliss-inspiring lay ; Whilst streams of nectar, as in living play, Rejoiced melodiously the shades among. I seemed alone : when from a bowery place A silver-wingéd shape came moving fast, And, as I gazed on its approaching face, Methought some thrilling memory of it past Into my soul—and in a little space 'Twas Rosa, smiling as I saw her last.

THE MAITLAND MERCURY. SATURDAY, OCTOBER 28, 1843. THE PUBLIC EXPENDITURE. THE doctrine laid down by the Collector of Customs, in one of the early discussions on the Estimates (and repudiated at the time by the Colonial Secretary), that the Legis- lative Council had no power to interfere with the salaries of government officers which had been fixed by the home govern- ment, has now been adopted by his Excellency the Governor, who has con- veyed his opinion to that effect in a message to the Council respecting the Estimates for the Administration of Justice. His Excellency endeavours to reconcile the inconsistency between the explanatory message and his financial minute, by stating that had he not thought that the salaries of the principal officers of the government were sufficiently gua- ranteed by the public faith which was pledged to them, he should not have omitted to declare that they were secured by the schedules in which they are chargeable. The purposes for which the schedules...

MAITLAND AND HINTON POST OFFICES. To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. GENTLEMEN-I would suggest through the medium of your journal that enquiry should be made into the management of post offices in the country districts, as I am of opinion that many alterations could be made much to the advantage of the public. I have received two letters from East Maitland within the last fortnight, one of them bearing the Maitland post mark of the 12th, and the Hinton post mark of the 17th instant, a distance of five miles in five days. The other bears the Maitland mark of the 2nd, and the Hinton mark of the 5th instant, thereby accomplishing the above distance in the short space of three days. -I am, gentlemen, W. Paterson, 18th October, 1843.
