NEWCASTLE A FREE PORT. To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 28 October 1843

NEWCASTLE A FREE PORT. To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. GENTLEMEN—On Monday last a meeting was held at the court house, pursuant to notice, to take into consideration the propriety of peti- tioning the government to establish a free ware- housing port at Newcastle, and other matters connected with its welfare. I will not trouble you with any account of the proceedings of the meeting, as I am aware that a more correct and copious report than I should be able to send you has been furnished ; but if you will allow me I will endeavour to lay before you some of the claims of the inhabitants of this place on the government for the privileges sought for in their petition. Newcastle has hitherto been known to the rest of the colony only by its coal mines. But, gentlemen, these are not its only resources. Situate at the mouth of the Hunter, this town commands the trade of a district equal in point of commerce and general importance to half the colony: in proportion to its size, it is ...

HUNTER RIVER DISTRICT NEWS. [FROM OUR CORRESPONDENTS.] JERRY'S PLAINS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 28 October 1843

HUNTER RIVER DISTRICT NEWS.   [FROM OUR CORRESPONDENTS.] JERRY'S PLAINS. I am sorry to say that a late frost, and the hot   weather, have so injured the late crops of wheat here that some persons have begun to cut it down for hay, The early wheat also is touched by the rust, and is likely to be much pinched in consequence. Some of the ears that have al- ready ripened exhibit shrivelled grains, yet it is to be hoped that an opportune fall of' rain before harvest will have the effect of filling the grain in the rest of the crop. The district is in a state of great quietude; no bushrangers or robberies of any kind to be heard of. NEWCASTLE. POLICE OFFICE.---FRIDAY, OCTOBER 20. (Before Major Crummer, P.M., and Captain Armstrong, J.P.) William Ayton and William Wright (both in irons, and attached to Nobby's Island) were charged with absconding on the night of the 18th instant. Sergeant Cook and private Ryan, of the 99th Regiment, captured the runaways on the day...

COMMERCIAL REMARKS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 28 October 1843

COMMERCIAL REMARKS. It would almost appear as though no revival in business was ever to take place, such is the continued dulness of the times. We do not now expect to hear of any increase in the amount of business transacted until after the harvest, which, judging from the appearance of the wheat crops in this neighbourhood will take place in the course of a fortnight or three weeks. The prices of grain are at present merely nominal, but there is so little brought into the market that scarcely any price can be quoted. There is little or no produce of any kind now brought into town, for upon almost every article the settlers find a depreciation in the price nearly every time they come in, and consequently the storekeepers are doing very little business. The spring vegetables, such as peas, beans, &c, are coming in very plentifully, and are good and cheap, peas selling at from 6d. to 9d. per peck, and beans at about 6d.

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 — 28 October 1843

SYDNEY NEWS. WHOLESALE PRICES OF COLONIAL FARM AND DAIRY PRODUCE IN THE SYDNEY MARKET, DURING THE PRESENT WEEK. WHEAT AND FLOUR.--No alteration. V.D.   Land is still selling at 4s. to 4s 6d per bushel. MAIZE is about the same price as last week, although there has not been so much come to market ; the greater portion is stubble or late maize, which accounts for the very low prices it realises ; some prime samples of early maize, of good bright color, would command at least 3d per bushel more than stubble. BARLEY AND OATS in small quantities will fetch 2s 6d per bushel; prime malting barley, 3s. HAY-Oaten and Lucerne-is rather lower, owing to the very large quantities coming to market. A large shipment arrived last week from V. D. Land, per Shamrock, which was of good quality, neatly packed, and sold very low, leaving the Hunter River hay unsold; the greater portion of the latter being so slovenly packed that purchasers feel afraid to buy for fear of losing a quantity in...

To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 28 October 1843

To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. GENTLEMEN-Several members of the colonial legislature having mentioned a government bank, as a means of relief from our present pecuniary difficulties, and nothing having been done towards that object, I conclude that a petition or memorial is necessary, in order that a movement be made on the part of the legislature. Under these circumstances I propose that meetings be held in all the chief settlements of this district ; and petitions be made, signed by every person that can write, setting forth the ruinous nature of all colonial transactions, in consequence of the high rate of interest. Some of the immediate evils of this state of affairs may be mentioned-such as its dis- heartening influence on the operations of the man of substance, who may have borrowed beyond what was a fourth part of the value of his property ; the inability of the farmer to cultivate grain, by reason of the scarcity of money and   cheapness of produce ; th...

To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 28 October 1843

To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. GENTLEMEN-In the Sydney Morning Herald of Thursday last I find a petition, signed by 41 persons, was presented to the Legislative Coun- cil by Mr. Wentworth, praying for " a revival of transportation on an enlarged and improved scale ;" and I most heartily wish they may get it, for we may then hope the roads of the colony will be put in such an improved state that we shall be enabled to travel over them without the risk of a broken neck, or of being suffocated in a waterhole. I left Grenberlong on Friday last with a friend, in a gig, and after being jumbled almost to a jelly over bad roads, we came to a place about three miles from Patrick's Plains, known as Mudie's Waterhole. A dray with eight bullocks had stuck fast in the middle of it, and the poor animals were flogged most unmercifully to make them drag it through, but not a foot could they move it. We were told to keep near the fence, and the horse at almost the first step sunk in the fil...

PORT PHILLIP. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 28 October 1843

PORT PHILLIP. The government have at length determined to resort to vigourous measures for repressing the destructive depredations of the aborigines upon the lives and properties of the settlers residing upon the banks of the Murray. The settlers of the western district have unanimously determined on entering into a subscription for the purpose of presenting Captain Dana, the commander of the native police, with a piece of plate, as an acknowledg- ment for the services he has rendered by protect- ing the lives and property of the squatters. A communication has been forwarded to the Mayor of Melbourne, from his Honor the Superintendent, conveying the unexpected intel- ligence that Major St. John would no longer be permitted to conduct the duties of police magistrate for the borough, and that in future they must be performed by the Mayor, in con- junction with the other borough magistrates. The Bishop of Australia during his stay in Geelong performed divine service every day, administ...

SYDNEY NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 4 November 1843

SYDNEY NEWS. From a return presented to the Legislative Council, it appears that at the present time there are beyond the boundaries 879 stations, having 11,000 acres of cultivated land, a population of 8000 souls, 11,796 horses, 491,000 head of horned cattle, and 1,000,800 sheep. The Sydney District Council met on Saturday last, and a letter was read from the Colonial Secretary, in answer to one transmitted to him by the Council requesting that his Excellency would place on the Estimates for 1844 a sum of £1000 to he granted to the Council to enable it to, carry on its business for the current year, preparatory to the levy of an assessment. The letter stated that his Excellency had been waiting in the hope that something would arise to enable him to comply with the request of the Council, but every succeeding day showed that such a request could not be complied with, without exposing the government to numerous claims of a similar nature, which they would be unable to meet. Some con...
