SYDNEY NEWS. THE ANNIVERSARY OF THE COLONY. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 4 February 1843

SYDNEY NEWS. THE ANNIVERSARY OF THE COLONY. Thursday, January 26th, being the fifty-fifth anniversary of the foundation of the colony, the day was as usual observed as a general holiday in the metropolis. The day was most propitious, and some thousands of persons were assembled on the shores of the harbour to witness the regatta. Their Excellencies the Governor and Sir Maurice O'Connell, accompanied by a number of ladies and gentlemen of the colony, assembled at Dawes' Battery, from which a royal salute was fired at twelve o'clock, which was answered by H.M.S. Hazard. Most of the races were well contested, and no accident appears to have happened to mar the general hilarity of the day. The first race was for gigs pulling four oars ; the first prize being £10, and the second prize £5. Four boats started, and the race was won by Mr. T. Wilshire's Aurora ; the second prize was disputed, as the Leander, the second boat in, had fouled the Thistle. (These two gigs ran again the next day, ...

BRITISH EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 4 February 1843

BRITISH EXTRACTS. AMERICAN BEEF.-We understand between twenty and thirty barrels of salted beef from New York were sold last week in town. This formed part of a cargo of upwards of 700 barrels shipped in return for Dundee goods, for which remittances by bills could not have been effected undera discount of twelve and a-half per cent. The beef having been cured for sea stores was rather salt, but otherwise of good quality ; and now that it is known across the Atlantic that it finds a ready market here for home consumption, it is likely it will be sent over in a fresher state for immediate use.-Perth Courier. The Borsenhall of Hamburgh, of the 5th Oct., states that, although five months have elapsed since the great fire in the city flames are seen from time to time on clearing away the ruins of some of the buildings. It is reported that the East India Company have effected some financial arrangement, by which the Bank of England will be relieved of two millions of Specie. The rumour i...

COMMERCIAL REMARKS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 11 February 1843

COMMERCIAL REMARKS. There has been very little business doing this week. Sugar has fallen £1 per ton. Potatoes now average about 5s. per cwt., though some of the best quality were sold at 8s. in the early part of the week. There has been no alteration in the price of flour or bread, although the price of grain is gradually falling. Wheat is now selling, at from 3s. 6d. to 4s. 6d. per bushel. There is, however, very little offered for sale, and that only by the poor settlers, who are absolutely obliged to sell in order to meet their immediate demands. Maize upon an average may be quoted at 4s. per bushel, though some very fine samples have been sold a little higher. The Sydney prices of grain are about as last week. A few bushels of wheat of rather infe- rior quality, sent down from Maitland, was sold early in the week for 3s. 9d. per bushel. Last week the same wheat could not be disposed of at any price.

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 11 February 1843

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. Gentlemen—In looking over your paper of the 4th I find an article under the signature " Euergetes," who begins in so plausible a man- ner that at first sight I was almost led to believe he was really a doer of good, as he styles himself; and as he so strongly condemns any covert act by stating that " he who covertly attempts to gain an object betrays a consciousness of insufficiency, " I really expected that this Simon Pure had some impartial good to state, and I even passed over his plagiarism in Latin until I found him covertly insinuating that Major Wentworth intended to secure his election by mere trickery, and that he (Major Wentworth) had never shone so brilliantly as to have a knowledge or an acquaintance with this district. Brilliant indeed! What an idea! But this is     not all that this doer of good would insinuate, for he wishes you to understand that Mr. A. W. Scott has shone brill...

To Wine Growers. SUCH Gentlemen as are anxious that their Wines should be submitted to the Hunter River Society, or are inclined to furnish any for the Hunter River Society's Dinner, to take place in March next, and of which notice will be given, would oblige the Committee by forwarding sam- ples to Mr. Cox, of the Union Hotel, East Mait- land, as early as possible, that every justice may be done by their not being moved a short time previous to the dinner.

To the independent Electors of the Northumberland Boroughs. GENTLEMEN - I have the honor to     announce to you my intention of can-   vassing for the Representation of your Boroughs in the first Elective Assembly; and I am the more induced to solicit your votes from the firm and flattering support I have met with in that borough where I am well known, and where my public and political character is best understood. The employer to a large extent of free labour, in the Tobacco Manufactory at Maitland, the Saltworks and Foundry at Newcastle, I beg to submit peculiarly entitles me to your suffrages ; and I can with pride point to them as monuments of my energy, and constant desire for the advancement of this district, and for the dis- couragement of foreign import. At my own expense a line has been already surveyed, and accurate levels taken, by Mr. Lundie, between Newcastle and Maitland for a railroad, which design, if carried into effect, will a...

HORRIBLE OUTRAGE BY THE BLAC?KS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 11 February 1843

HORRIBLE OUTRAGE BY THE BLACKS. On Saturday morning last, between eight and nine o'clock, two of the aboriginals called at an out station of Mr. R.Scott's, of Glendon, about seven miles from the house, and enquired for the shepherd ; on being told by the watchman that he was after the sheep on the mountain, they asked the watchman whether he came to the colony an immigrant, or a prisoner, and when he replied that he came as a prisoner they said it was well for him, as prisoners were obliged to come here against their will, but the immigrants came of their own accord, to rob the black man of his land and gave him no food, and that they (the blacks) would pay them (the immigrants) off for it. They then took whatever they could   carry off in the hut ; and said they would have the women who were there. Whilst the two black fellows were talking to the watchman the women made their escape, out of the back of the hut and ran towards the bush to conceal them selves: each of th...

RUNTER RIVER DISTRICT NEWS. [FROM OUR CORRESPONDENTS.] UPPER HUNTER. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 11 February 1843

HUNTER RIVER DISTRICT NEWS, [FROM OUR CORRESPONDENTS.] UPPER HUNTER. The atmosphere has been threatening for rain for some days past, but none has fallen. The country from Murrurundi to Singleton is in a deplorable, parched up state, neither grass nor water; and, to show the dryness of the season, Glennie's Creek, that has always been full of water at the crossing place, near Johnstone's inn, has now ceased running ; a circumstance the more remarkable as no person ever remem- bers seeing it so dry before, or void of a running stream.- Beyond the boundaries of location the country here looks well, plenty of grass and water, and favourable accounts are arriving from all quarters, the Namoi, Peel, Macintyre, Big River, &c. ; and the blacks are now quiet. We may therefore expect more fat cattle from these districts this season (for the Maitland and Sydney markets) than have been driven down for three years past, as until recently there has been no grass to fatten them, and the c...

THE MAITLAND MERCURY. SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 11, 1843. THE ELECTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 11 February 1843

THE MAITLAND MERCURY SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 11, 1843. THE ELECTION. THE electioneering excitement is still vigorous in the Northumberland boroughs. A meeting of the electors, called by Major Wentworth's friends, was held at Newcastle on Wednesday last, a report of which will be found in our fourth page. Making allowance for a little disturbance, which was quite natural under the circumstances, the proceedings appear to have been of a much more legitimate character than those of the last Maitland meeting, the discussion having been confined to the claims and principles of the candidates. The supporters of both gentlemen seem to us to have dwelt too exclusively upon minor and local points, while the mental capa- city and enlarged views so essential to the cha- racter of a legislator were almost lost sight of. Very opposite opinions were expressed at the meeting of the influence the Legislative Council will exercise over local taxation ; and as con- siderable doubt appears to exist on this...

THE ELECTION.—MEETING AT NEWCASTLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 11 February 1843

THE ELECTION.-MEETING AT   NEWCASTLE. A public meeting of the electors of Newcastle having been called by Major Wentworth's friends, to be held on Wed- nesday last, for the purpose of strengthen- ing the cause of the Major in that town, about thirtyy or forty gentlemen left Mait- land at an early hour on Wednesday morning, for the purpose of attending the meeting. A number of Mr. Scott's friends also left Maitland for the same purpose. At about one o'clock the gentlemen composing the committees assembled in front of Mr. M'Greavy's house, and from one to two hundred of the inhabitants of Newcastle, chiefly of the labouring classes, also assembled. Flags were flying from the windows of several inns in the town; nearly the whole of Mr. Scott's adherents wore rosettes at their breasts of green,   purple, and blue ribbons, and were attended by a band. William Brooks, Esq., was unani- mously called to the chair. Upon taking it he said, though he was not an elector for the bor...

THE ELECTIONS.—NO. 1. To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 18 February 1843

THE ELECTIONS.-No. 1. To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. Gentlemen-An important era in the political history of this our adopted country now dawns upon us, and it behoves every individual to step forward and carry out as far as possible the great objects of the elective franchise of the colony. Several meetings have been held, and blustering orations delivered, evidencing considerable per- sonal rancour and dogmatic assumption ; but this is not the way to establish our rights upon a firm basis, or to make the elective franchise subservient to our personal interests and the good of our country. The exercise of the franchise is an epoch in our political existence that will entail great benefits or lasting miseries ; it is a trust reposed in us, involving the highest attributes of good government. On the energies, character, and political principles of the man chosen to represent us in the first legislative assembly of this great colony, depend in a great measure the laws that wil...
