AN EXPOST[?]LATORY ADDRESS TO THE MEMBER FOR DURHAM. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 4 November 1843
AN &nbsp; &nbsp; EXPOSTULATORY &nbsp; ADDRESS TO THE MEMBER FOR DURHAM. Oh fie, Mr. Windeyer! you've surely gone mad- You have not sufficiently studied "the case : " Retrench if you please-but 'tis really too bad To cut down the pay of my government place. I've eight hundred a year-but my wife, as you know, &nbsp; &nbsp; Gives parties, and shines too in jewels and lace ; Only think to her nerves what a terrible blow, Should they cut down the pay of my govern- ment place. The girls, too-I must have the chariot and greys, That they "The Domain" with their presence may grace ; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Sure you'd not have them walking whene'er the band plays- Then touch not the pay of my government place*. My attendance is punctual six hours a day, The papers I read, and my signature, trace : And each month at the Treasury a visit I pay, The salary to draw for my government place. These duties are light, I confess, but you know...
THE MAITLAND MERCURY. SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 4, 1843. THE GAOL PETITION. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 4 November 1843
THE MAITLAND MERCURY. SATURDAY, NOVEMBER.4, 1843.' THE GAOL PETITION. IT is difficult to judge of the exact result of the petitions which were forwarded to the Governor and the Legislative Council, praying that the sum of £3000 voted for the service of the present year towards the completion of the gaol at East Maitland, should be at once applied to the purpose for which it was voted. The statements of Major Wentworth and the Colonial Secretary, respecting the steps the govern- ment intend to take in regard to the gaol, are very contradictory. The hon, member for the Northumberland Boroughs, in his letter to Mr. P. J. Cohen, says that the Governor's reply to the prayer of the petition was exactly in accordance with his own opinion previous to the interview, viz. &nbsp; that the sum of £3000 voted by the late Legislative Council towards the com- pletion of the gaol is not in existence, and therefore his Excellency cannot expend it. The Colonial Secretary, on the other hand, s...

ST. MARY'S CHURCH, WEST MAITLAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 4 November 1843
ST. MARY'S CHURCH, WEST MAITLAND. On Monday last a meeting of the pewholders of St. Mary's Church was held in the church, for the purpose of taking into consideration various matters connected with the building, &c. The Rev. Mr. Stack was in the chair. Mr. L. POTTS, one of the churchwardens, said one of the principal reasons why he wished the present meeting to be called was that under existing circumstances, he having been compelled to go into the insolvent court, he felt it to be his duty to resign the trust which the pewholders had been pleased to place in his hands, as he could not with propriety continue in the office of churchwarden, and he therefore begged to tender his resignation. Mr. PITCHER thought "there was no necessity for Mr. Potts to resign the office of church- warden. ( He was of opinion that the pewholders would be quite satisfied that Mr. Potts should continue in office, and as far as he was concerned, as a brother churchwarden, he should be very sorry to...
HUNTER RIVER DISTRICT NEWS. [FROM OUR CORRESPONDENTS.] NEWCASTLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 4 November 1843
HUNTER RIVER DISTRICT NEWS. &nbsp; [FROM OUR CORRESPONDENTS.] NEWCASTLE. POLICE OFFICE.-There have been no cases tried at the police office during the past week. THE POLICE MAGISTRATE.-The public an- nouncement, that the office of police magistrate was about to be abolished, caused, considerable dismay and excitement, in this town. The inhabitants, lost no time in preparing a petition addressed, to the Legislative Council, settting forth in true colours the rising importance of Newcastle on account of its mines, manufac- tories, &c, the progressive improvements of the town, and the very onerous duties of our respected police magistrate, Major Crummer; and praying that on account of the very heavy magisterial duties at Newcastle the office of police magistrate might be continued, as without some such functionary the most lamentable results would in all probability arise. The peti- tion has been forwarded to Major Wentworth, and other members of the Council have been a...
COMMERCIAL REMARKS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 4 November 1843
COMMERCIAL REMARKS. The commercial proceedings of the past week have not been at all brisker or more extensive than for some time previously, though it is pro- bable that there may be in the course of a short time a slight improvement, as the wool drays are now beginning to come down. A good number from various stations have passed through the town during the week, and on their return they will probably carry away such supplies as the settlers may be in need of. The prices of nearly all articles of consump- tion remain without change. The price of flour, it will be seen on reference to our price current, has fallen from 1s. to 3s. per 100 lbs. The prices of grain, however, continue the same, or nearly so, but there is no colonial wheat now in the market. Cigars have also fallen in price ; very good ones may now be purchased at £2 10s. per 1000.

LETTERS ON THE STATE AND PROSPECTS OF THE COLONY. (Addressed to a Friend in Great Britain.) No. III. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 4 November 1843
LETTERS ON THE STATE AND PROS- PECTS OF THE COLONY. (Addressed to a Friend in Great Britain.) No. III. My Dear -:-In my last letter I described the effects produced upon our markets by the influx of capital into the colony ; and I propose now to show that while prices were at their highest, while the fever of speculation was raging, and our brains were filled with visions of imaginary prosperity, the real wealth of the colony (I mean any money which might have been amassed during the period when our trade was healthy) was secretly drained away through unobserved channels, which were opened partly by the imprudence of government; partly by our own folly, extravagance, and infatuation ; partly by our disastrous position ; and partly by the visitation of divine Providence. In Great Britain wealth has been accumulating for centuries. Trade has long since erected her treasure houses, where the surplus arising from her operations is preserved ; and the government itself has in the public ...

LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. THURSDAY, OCTOBER 26. The COLONIAL SECRETARY laid upon the table returns of the fees received and disbursements made by the Commissioner of Insolvent Estates at Bathurst ; and then gave notice that he would on the following day move for leave to bring in a bill to amend the Licensing Act, more especially with respect to wine growers.

Dr. LANG supported the motion, and after some discussion an address, praying that a sum not exceeding 1480l might be appropriated for the above purpose, was adopted, and the Colonial Secretary and Mr. Bowman were appointed to present it to his Excellency. Dr. NICHOLSON moved an address to his Excellency on the subject of providing funds for the overland expedition to Port Essington, but after a few words from the Colonial Secretary, it was postpone...
