UNEMPLOYED LABOURERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 18 November 1843

-UNEMPLOYED LABOURERS. We ave glad to perceive that the Colonial Secretary has given notice of his intention to move that a sum of .£500 be voted hy- the Legislative Council for the conveyance of unemployed labourers into the interior of the colony, as there are still a large number of persons out of employment in Sydney. The daily attendance at Mrs. Chisholm's office, at the Immigration Barracks, averages about 120, and of these a considerable number have such large families of young children that it appears to be an impossibility to procure them situations. Airs. Chisholm, we understand, is endeavouring to carry out a plan for the benefit of these persons, of getting two families to unite and take a farm on a clearing lease of thirteen years. Some of these parties, it may be presumed, 1iave friends who may be induced to advance them small sums of .£10 or £12, and this, together with such means as may be within their own families, will enable them, if judiciously managed, to go on ...

CUSTOMS LAWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 18 November 1843

CUSTOMS LAWS. His Excellencj the Governor has laid before the Legislative Council the drafts of three bills for the amendment of the laws of the customs in New South Wales. The first is a bill for the general regulation of the customs, being only a re-enactment of the 3 Victoria, No. 3, with such alterations as time and circumstances have rendered necessary. The second is to aller the method of taking ad valorem duties; and the third to alter and amend the duties of customs payable in the colony of New South Wales. The two latter however must, as his Excellency states, under the 31st clause of Ú and 6 Victoria, cap. 76, be reser\ ed for her Majesty's pleasure. The third bill is the most important of the three, inasmuch as its object is to convert the present ad valorem duties on certain articles into fixed duties, and to increase the ad valorem duties on other articles, so as to obtain a sufficient increase to the revenue to admit of a reduclion of one half of the duties on spirits....

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 — 18 November 1843

SY3&WEY NEWS. WHOLESALE PRICES OF COLONIAL FARM AND DAIRY PRODUCE IN THE SYDNEY MARKET, DURING THE PRESENT WEEK. WHEAT AND FLOUR.-There have been several arrivals of wheat from Van Diemen's Land lately, most of which has been very dull of sale, at from 4s to*4s Cd ; one lot of smutty is without any offer for it; Flour still continues the same. MAIZE is still very plentiful, and the highest price given is Is Cd; some lot« have been selling as low as Is 4d. A few hundred bushels have been shipped to Port Phillip. OATS still continue the same, very little in demand. BARLEY-English and Cape-English is worth about 3s per bushel, if very good, and fit for malting. Cape is not worth more than 2s, and must be very good to sell for this. HAY is very plentiful in the market, and the highest price for very prime loads is about 21 10s per ton. The sheds at the Steam Wharf are all full of hay from the Hunter River, with scarcely any sale for it, the hay from the southward being so very c...

SELECT POETRY. THE FOOTSTEPS OF ANGELS. When the hours of day are number'd, And the voices of the night Wake the better soul that slumber'd To a holy, calm delight ; Ere the evening lamps are lighted, And, like phantoms grim and tall, Shadows from the fitful fire-light Dance upon the parlour wall ; Then the shades of the departed Enter at tlie open door-r- v "**   The beloved, the true-hearted, Come to visit me once more. He, the young and strong, who cherish'd, Noble longings for the strife, By the roadside Tell and perish'd, Weary with the march of life. They, the holy ones and weakly, Who the cross of suffering bore, Folded their pale hands so meekly, Spake with us on earth no more. And, with them, the being beauteous Who unto my youth was given, Above all things else to love me,   And is now a saint in heaven.   With a slow and noiseless footstep Comes that messenger divine Takes the vacant chair beside me, Lays her gentle hand in mine. And...

LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 9. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 18 November 1843

X.EGISI.ATIVE COUXrCXX. THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 9. At the close of our correspondent's letter the house had just resolved itself into committee on the Estimates for 1844, and the The COLONIAL SECRETARY moved that out of Hie sum of 92,847Z. 6s. Id., being the excess of revenue remaining unexpended in the several departments for ulrich certain sums had been \oted by the Legislalhe Council, the sum of 30,742?. 15s. might be voted to meet the deficiencies in other departments, where an expenditure had been rendered necessary over and above the sum so voted. ^ * <, Mr. WENTWORTH and Mr. WINDEYER opposed the motion, on the ground that it would have the effect of recognising a power on the part of the executive government of superseding the determination arrived at by that Council. The motion was supported by the AUDITOR GENERAL and Mr. M'LEAY, and after a short discussion Mr. WINDEYER moved an adjourn- ment of the committee, which was carried by a majority of 10 to 7. The house then...

COLONIAL INTELLIGENCE. PORT PHILLIP. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 18 November 1843

COX.O20XAXi IN-TEÏ.X.IGENCE. PORT PHILLIP. DECOCTION OF BARK.-We are happy to per- ceive that the depreciation of stock has been the means of inducing some of our settlers to turn their attention to making the most of every available commodity afforded them by the productions of the colony. We have been shown a decoction of bark, of which a very considerable quantity will be shipped this season for the home market. As the cost of preparing the decoction is very trifling, we apprehend from the great saving which will be created in cartage and freight, that it is likely to prove a far more lucrative undertaking than shipping the article in its raw state. No doubt the first few ship- ments will be looked upon with an eye of suspicion by the consumers at home, but when it has stood the test, and proved to be a genuine extract, all obstacles to its profitable introduc- tion into the home market will be removed. The value which this article bears in England we believe to be from forty to ...

A TREATISE ON WIND AND A FEW OTHER THINGS. To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 18 November 1843

A TREATISE ON WIND AND A FEW OTHER THINGS. To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. GENTLEMEN-Having heard the various mat- ters brought forward in the Legislative Council frequently introduced as subjects of conversation, I find that the conduct of the worthy member for Durham, in his advocacy of popular rights and rigid economy in the expenditure of the public money, has gained for him the approbation of the majority, both in intelligence and num- bers, of his constituents ; as well as of others residing in the neighbouring districts. It has therefore been suggested that some token of approval of his conduct should be presenîed to him-either a gold snuff box, or some other testimonial-shewing the estimation in which he is held by the public in this and the surrounding districts. As it is necessary that some one should set the affair going, I hope the gentlemen who interested themselves in his election will use their utmost influence and exertions in carrying the object into effect,...

To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 18 November 1843

To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. GENTLEMEN-As your columns are ever ready to give publicity to merit, where it is due, you will much oblige me by inserting in your next number the annexed. A few days since the Rev. Mr. Lynch visited the Paterson district in the discharge of his sacred duties, and on the morning of Wednesday, having travelled a distance of eight or nine miles, he arrived at the township, just at the time the court was about to sit. A great many persons were in attendance for the dispatch of business, and on application being made to the presiding magistrates, Messrs. Johnstone and Warren, for the use of the court-house to cele- brate mass, these gentlemen with their usual urbanity granted the request at once. The court-house was crowded during divine service, and at the conclusion the rev. gentleman admin- istered the pledge to about twenty persons. It is indeed very gratifying to behold, at. this season of heat and labour, men coming forward and pledging ¡the...

rpl Hlä'MMTEAOT MEHCU-BY. SATURDAY, NOVEMBER l8, 1843. THE GOVERNMENT MORTGAGE SCHEME. WE have not yet received a copy of Mr, Windeyers bill "to restore public con- fidence," but the following is an abstract of it, taken from the Australian of Tuesday last. " It is entitled ' A Bill to restore confidence ; and to provide for and regulate the issuing and lending of land board notes and pledge certifi- cates, and for other purposes therein contained.' The preamble sets forth, that in consideration ot the monetary confusion and depreciation of property which ^prevail throughout the colony, it is expedient, under certain regulations, to assist tile colonists individually, by the interposition of the credit of the community, and it therefore provides for the appointment of land board commissioners, for advancing io any person or persons, ort the security of lands in New South Wales, land board notes, and pledge certificates, to be fnade and issued by the commissioners.

LETTERS ON THE STATE AND PROSPECTS OF THE COLONY. (Addressed to a Friend in Great Britain.) No. IV. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 18 November 1843

LETTERS ON THE STATE AND PROS- PECTS OF THE COLONY. (Addressed to a Friend in Great Britain.) No. IV. MY DEAR -: My last letter was hastily written, and as the calculations it contained and the principles I attempted to elucidate required the utmost considera- tion, this haste made me timid, and the conclusions, though perfectly correct, are not stated with the force, certainty, and clearness which the case admits of, and indeed requires. The inevitable conclusion is this: In the year 1831 (when there was a panic resembling that under which we are now suffering, but of shorter duration, and less destructive) there could not have been any considerable accumulation of money ; since that period, and while, through banks and trust companies, loans of money were flowing into the colony, our expenditure lias always much exceeded our income. If you wish, then, to ascertain the amount of accumulation in 1840, it must be ex- pressed by a negative quantity-it was some millions of pounds less ...

SYDNEY NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 25 November 1843

SYDNEY NEWS. Information has reached Sydney of the death of Dr. Wilson, of Braidwood. A seizure was made a few days ago of a hundred gallons of rum, which had been smuggled, at the stores of J. D. Gordon, Liverpool. An investigation was about to take place. On Thursday last an action for false imprison- ment was tried in the supreme court, in which Captain Hyndman was the plaintiff, and Captain Innes and Mr. Digby, the superintendent of the Lunatic Asylum at Tarban Creek, the defendants. It appeared that during the late election the plaintiff was addressing a number of persons on the race course, and spoke rather severely against the government, upon which he was taken into custody by a constable, and committed to Woolloomooloo gaol by Captain Innes, from whence he was subsequently removed to Tarban Creek assylum, under the pretext that he was of unsound mind. After being confined there for some time steps were taken to obtain a writ of habeas corpus, but prior to its being obtained...

SUPPRESSION OF CATTLE STEALING. To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 25 November 1843

SUPPRESSION OF CATTLE STEALING. To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. GENTLEMEN-You will oblige me by publish- ing the following in your interesting journal, as I am assured if the suggestion be acted upon, cattle stealing would be soon put an end to.   * * * I am astonished at the supineness of the authorities generally in neglecting so obvious a means of securing the conviction of cattle stealers, and can only attribute such to-a weakness (I may call it so) which too frequently intervenes, and mars the best of projects towards the attainment of desirable ends.-Yours, &c, A CORRESPONDENT.

DUTIES FOR REVENUE. To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 25 November 1843

DUTIES FOR REVENUE. To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. GENTLEMEN-A great deal having been said and written on the subject of duties for protec- tion without any satisfactory conclusion having been arrived at-since we see that those most opposed to protective duties have expressed themselves favourable to duties for revenue, and in the council a variety of import duties are in contemplation, so that it has now become a matter of great importance to examine with care this nice distinction between protective duties and duties for revenue; or otherwise we shall, by trying to avoid a temporary ill, be plunging into a permanent evil, by introducing a system of duties, or indirect taxation, which the colony will never be able to shake off. That the duties for revenue have a tendency always to increase might be shown in a thousand ways, but as the people of this colony are very fond of American- ising, believing that no taxation is felt there, I will confine myself to an American examp...

THE MAGISTRACY—COUNTRY POLICE. (From a correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 25 November 1843

THE MAGISTRACY-COUNTRY POLICE. (From a correspondent.) It is understood that a petition has been presented to the Distinct Council of Pa- terson, praying for the privilege of being taxed, with a view to provide a salary for a police magistrate. The principle of having the power to command the services of the magistracy, in consequence of paying them for such services, is no doubt legitimate. But the hon. member for Durham has fought hard to cut down all expenses in the government of the colony which can by possibility be dispensed with; and out of this disposable expenditure the expunging of the salaries of police magis- trates in the rural districts has formed an important item. It is clear that if magis- trates are to be paid for their services, the honor of the office might be vastly abridged : but it is also clear that, if the honor be rightly appreciated, the payment of the implied services may also be gene- rally dispensed with. According to this view, and to follow out the po...
