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

THE MILITARY AT NEWCASTLE. To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. Gentlemen-A letter appeared in your paper of Saturday last, dated "Newcastle, 23rd Nov.,   1843," and signed "Civilian," which has brought   before you and the public a number of charges, seriously affecting the character of the military stationed here, who amount to about 200, prin- cipally recruits, tied to each other by the strongest ties of friendship ; and who are, with the exception of some half-dozen, perfectly quiet and inoffensive men. With reference to the assault on the Morgans, I have not yet fully ascertained the particulars, and shall not therefore make any remarks upon it at present. As to the military being "daily   to be seen in a state of beastly intoxication, in- dulging in the most vile and filthy language" this statement is untrue: I have every oppor- tunity of observing their conduct, and can without hesitation declare it to be false. A considerable number ...

THE MAITLAND MERCURY. SATURDAY, DECEMBER 2, 1843. REDUCTION OF POSTAGE. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 2 December 1843

THE MAITLAND MERCURY. SATURDAY, DECEMBER 2, 1843. REDUCTION OF POSTAGE. The committee appointed to consider Dr. Lang's resolutions relative to the reduction of postage have presented their report to the Council. They recommend that all letters posted for town delivery should he charged the penny rate, irrespectively of weight, up to four ounces; that stamps similar to those used in the mother country should be adopted, both in town and country, to be used or not at the option of the writer, without subjecting letters paid on delivery to double postage ; and that pamphlets and magazines, not exceeding a certain weight, should be transmitted by post at the rate of postage chargeable on single letters. The committee are of opi- nion that no postage should be charged on newspapers, and that no change should take place in the present rate of postage chargeable on ship-borne letters to or from places beyond the limits of the colony, excepting in the adoption of the present English scale o...

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

COMMERCIAL REMARKS. Business seems to be in some small degree reviving, and we may anticipate in a few weeks still further activity. Several samples of new wheat have been during the week brought into the market, and in the course of the next two or three weeks it is probable that there will be much more, as most of the settlers who have gathered in their harvest are now busily engaged in thrashing. Indeed, the want of money is so severely felt that there is every reason for believing that grain will be abundantly brought into the market at once by those whose crops have succeeded. The best samples are selling at from 4s. to 4s. 6d. per bushel, whilst the inferior ranges from 3s. to 3s. 6d. But it is thought there is a great deal which will not fetch more than 2s. or 2s. 6d., whilst some is so eaten up and withered by the rust as not to be worth thrashing, and is being given by the settlers to their cattle.   Maize is rather looking up, the highest price now given is 1s...

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 — 2 December 1843

SYDNEY NEWS. Wholesale Prices of Colonial Farm and Dairy Produce in the Sydney Market, during the present Week. Wheat and Flour continue dull of sale ; nothing but V. D. Land wheat is offered, and the prices realised from 3s 6d to 4s per bushel. Flour still remains unchanged. Maize.-Very little has been sent to market during the week, which has caused a trifling advance of about 2d per bushel; it may be quoted at 1s 6d to 1s 8d per bushel. Oats are but very little in demand, and there is no alteration in the price. Barley.-Good bright samples of English barley will realise about 3s per bushel, but very few purchasers, it being late in the season. Cape barley 1s 6d, and no purchasers. Hay.-Prime hay is selling for about £2 10s per ton ; a good stock in the market, without any prospect of an advance. Pigs are still in demand, and if in good con- dition sell readily in small lots, about 3d per lb. Butter.-The very best quality is bringing from 8d to 9d per lb. by the single keg, of sma...

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

THE CROPS. A gentleman who is acting as the agent for several landed proprietors, non-residents of this district, and whose properties are let to small farmers, has shewn us several samples of wheat which he has collected amongst them, and from its very inferior quality we are certain that it will by no means pay the expense of harvesting ; and this, we are sorry to say, appears to be the case with nearly all the wheat crops in this neighbourhood. We regret to observe fires in nearly every direction, the settlers having adopted this expeditious mode of ridding their   land of the useless straw in order to prepare it for a late maize crop, in which we trust that they may be more successful than they have been with the wheat. Nothing could possibly look better than the wheat crops did in this neighbourhood a month or six weeks since, so much so as greatly to surprise most persons at the very inferior appearance which the grain now presents. Much distress, we are afraid, m...

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

ENGLISH NEWS. By the arrival of the Bangalore, on Saturday last, English news has been received to the 23rd August, but no regular files of papers have reached the colony. The Bangalore called at the Cape of Good Hope, and previous to her departure the Bentick steamer arrived from Southampton, which she left on the 24th August. The harvest promised to be a most abundant one, and trade was tolerably brisk. The Queen and Royal Family were well, and her Majesty was to prorogue Parliament on the 24th August. The repeal movement was still going forward. Large meetings were still being held; one on the celebrated hill of Tara, at which it was computed that 500,000 persons were present, the Dublin Pilot says one million. At this meeting Mr. O'connell said he believed he was able to announce that twelve months could not possibly elapse without having a hurrah for a parliament in College Green, and he also stated that in a few days the association would nominate "arbitrators" in the persons ...

LETTERS ON THE STATE AND PROSPECTS OF THE COLONY. (Addressed to a Friend in Great Britain.) No. V. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 2 December 1843

LETTERS ON THE STATE AND PROS- PECTS OF THE COLONY. (Addressed to a Friend in Great Britain.) No. V. Mr Dear -: You can now per- ceive in what toils we were involved in the beginning of 1841, although, poor innocent creatures ! we were quite unconscious of them. Young speculators could not be expected to understand such a complicated system, and the oldest and most experienced did not take correct views then, though now the whole subject is perfectly intel- ligible. All were deceived when they found themselves swimming in that inun- dation of money that was poured in upon us by the operations of the English banks and loan companies. If you ask what has been the result of our mania for speculation, my answer is the Insolvent List. And the result could not have been different. Sooner or later, debt and interest and compound interest must have over- powered the colony, and produced virtually a colonial bankruptcy ; which means, in practice, that one-half of the merchants and proprietor...

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

THE MILITARY AT NEWCASTLE. To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. Gentlemen-Perceiving a long rigmarole in your journal of last Saturday touching some violent outrages alleged against some of the militarjr, I am induced to state that although an occurrence of such a nature may be probable, as being occasioned by an individual whilst under the influence of liquor, the military stationed in this town are of the most quiet and inoffensive description that has ever been stationed here during my residence, for the last six years. It would excite no great surprise, most certainly, if now and then a soldier should get drunk, or misbehave himself in that state. But, at the same time, it is but just that the officers in charge of the military here should receive our meed of praise for their great urbanity of manners towards the townspeople, and their strict atten- tion to the discipline of the men under their com- mand. The complaints are certainly few, but they need only to be reported to ...
