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

COMMERCIAL REMARKS. During the last week or two there has been some slight improvement in our commercial transactions, though we are afraid it is not of a very permanent nature, being occasioned chiefly by the supplies needed by the settlers in consequence of the harvest. More purchases have been made by the settlers than for some weeks previously, and there has been more money in circulation. There is, however, no rise whatever in the prices of farm produce, all kinds of which remain at a very low figure. Of colonial wheat there is none now in the market, and maize has still a tendency downwards ; some very good samples have been lately purohased as low as Is. 4d. per bushel. During the last few weeks there has also been a considerable fall in the priée of sugar, as will be seen by a reference to our price current. Most of the storekeepers in Maitland are now retailing sugar at 2d. per lb., and tea is now being retailed at Is. 9d. Dairy produce of all kinds still retains its former...

VINE GROWING AND WINE MAKING. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 25 November 1843

VINE GROWING AND WINE MAKING. OUR readers will probably remember that about three months since we published a series of articles on the culture and curing of tobacco in Australia. Those articles having been found useful to the tobacco growers of the district, we felt anxious to procure equally good and practical in- formation on the subject of vine growing and wine making in Australia. We pub- lished, some time ago, extracts from Clement Hoare (ones of the best English writers on the subject), laying down rules for pruning the vine, and for estimating the quantity of grapes each vine would be able to mature well. As these rules of course required some modification to be applicable to this country, we were very desirous to obtain and publish the results of colonial expe- riments in vine growing and wine making. In furtherance of this object, we wrote lately to Mr. Warren, of Brandon, near Raymond Terrace, to request him to fur- nish us with such information on these subjects as his e...

LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 17. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 25 November 1843

LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 17. Mr. PANTON gave notice that on Wednesday next he would move that some returns relative to the importation of wheat be printed ; and the COLONIAL SECRETARY gave notice that he would   on the same day move that certain returns relative to Port Phillip be printed. Mr. WINDEYER presented a petition from Scone and Murrurundi against those clauses of the Act of Parliament establishing District Councils; and also another petition from Muswellbrook, praying the Council to re- consider the vote by which they were deprived of their police magistrate. Both the petitions were read and received. MONETARY CONFIDENCE BILL. Mr. WINDEYER rose to move the second reading of the Monetary Confidence Bill. He admitted that the bill was not perfect in all its details ; some of the clauses ought to be expunged, and other and better clauses ought to be added. Two principles were involved in this bill. The first was that in a time of peculiar distress gov...

THE MAITLAND MERCURY. SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 25, 1843. THE TENANTRY SYSTEM—IMPROVING LEASES. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 25 November 1843

THE MAITLAND MERCURY, SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 25, 1843. THE TENANTRY SYSTEM-IMPROVING LEASES. We are happy to observe, from what passed in the Legislative Council during the debate of Wednesday, the 15th instant, and from reports which reach us from various quarters, that the necessity of forming a rural population appears now to be generally felt. The colony, indeed, presents at present a very anomalous as- pect; the two principal sources of pros- perity, land and labour, appear at the same time superabundant and deficient-we have labourers seeking for employment, and land lying useless and valueless for want of hands to cultivate it. If these two could be wisely united, the result would be of great value to the whole community ; we might expect to see an industrious yeomanry growing up around us, and producing, for their own use and for ours, plenty of corn, wine, and oil. But the present miserable system of letting land on short leases opposes an insurmountable obstacle to every prosp...

HUNTER RIVER DISTRICT NEWS. [FROM OUR CORRESPONDENTS.] MUSWELLBROOK. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 25 November 1843

HUNTER. RIVER DISTRICT REWS. [FROM OUR CORRESPONDENTS.] MUSWELLBROOK. It is rather a roundabout way to receive the first intimation of our own sayings and doings from the columns of the Sydney Herald. Such is sometimes the case, however, for in a recent report of the proceedings of the Legislative Council, Mr. Windeyer is said to have presented a petition from "Magistrates, district coun- cillors, and others of the district of Muswell- brook, expressing their regret that the Council by its vote should have deprived them of the services of a police magistrate, which they considered absolutely necessary, and praying the Council to re-consider their vote," &c. &c. When or where this petition was conceived, what particular length of time the process of incubatiom occupied, and when it was hatched, is altogether a mystery to the community here. The only guarantee we have that such a pro- duction actually existed is in the matter-of-fact composition of our worthy member, w...

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. FURTHER OUTRAGES BY THE MILITARY. To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 25 November 1843

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE FURTHER OUTRAGES BY THE MILI- TARY. To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. GENTLEMEN-On Monday night, the 20th instant, between the hours of nine and ten o'clock, the house formerly the property of Captain Biddulph, in King-street, now occupied by some wretchedly poor people named Morgan, was entered by two soldiers of the 99th regiment. They made their way into the room in which Morgan, his wife, and two children were; the   wife and children were in bed, and Morgan was undressing, when one of the ruffians fell on him and struck him a severe blow on the head with a stick ; the stick was broken by the force of the blow. Morgan's brother, who sleeps in an adjoining room, came in to his aid, and the assailants left the house ; but in less than five minutes one of them returned armed with his bayonet, and again effected an entrance into the room where he had left Morgan, and before Morgan had time to defend himself the wretch said to him " take tha...

SYDNEY NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 2 December 1843

STDNEY NEWS. As the Asia from London was about to enter the heads, on Friday night last, an apprentice on board, about sixteen years of age, was carried overboard by the main sheet whilst tacking ship. A boat was instantly lowered, and some planks and hencoops thrown over- board, but after pulling about the place for upwards of an hour the boat returned without having seen anything of the unfortunate lad. On Thursday, the 22rd [sic] ult., an action for assault and imprisonment on the high seas was tried before Mr. Justice Stephen and a special jury. The plaintiff was Mr. Cory, a respectable settler in this district, who was returning from England, and the defendant Mr. Oppenheim, the commander of the ship Persian. The trial lasted for nearly two days, and the jury returned a verdict for the plaintiff, damages £200. There was another action of a similar nature, Miles v. Oppenheim, but a most ample appology [sic] having been made this case was dismissed. A numerous meeting of the inha...

THE VINE. To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 2 December 1843

THE VINE. To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. Gentlemen-I am happy to find in your paper of last week that you have received a communication on the subject of the growth of the vine from Mr. Warren. I believe there are few gentlemen in the colony whose experience would afford more conclusive results than his ; at least he has met with success in this culture, and success is a very strong argument in favor of any positions he may advance with regard to the modes of cultivation. At the same time that I am bound to differ from him with regard to trenching the ground before planting, I sincerely hope he will continue to enlighten us from the results of his experience, which, in a subject of so much difficulty as the cultivation of the vine, cannot fail to be of infinite use to our young community. I have said that I differ from Mr. Warren with regard to trenching the ground, and am consequently bound to state my reasons. Mr. Warren assumes it is a fact that trenching is indispensabl...

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 2 December 1843

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. Gentlemen-Amongst the numerous changes and charges of the forthcoming year, there will occur to the good inhabitants of Newcastle the very novel and somewhat weighty one of paying their own functionaries; and, judging from the present pressure of the times, and the gloomy perspective, it appears imperative that retrench- ment and economy he closely acted upon. I therefore beg leave to suggest, through the medium of your valuable journal, that all useless situations be abolished, and that the duties of any two (when practicable) be performed by one individual. In pursuing this subject I beg to call their attention to the office of lockup keeper, the duties of which could, in conjunction with his own, be well performed by the chief constable. In recommending this measure, I do not wish to so considerably add to that vigilant officer's duties without some recompense, but let it be such as to meet the aspect of the times. ...
