DISTRICT COUNCIL. TUESDAY, DECEMBER 5. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 9 December 1843

DISTRICT COUNCIL. Tuesday, December 5. Present:-The Warden, Messrs. Wyndham, Lang, Innes, and Captain Hungerford. ASSESSMENT. The Warden stated that at the separation of the Council on the 3rd October, it was arranged that the assessors should be furnished with instructions, under the seal of the Council, to make the assessment before they commenced their labours ; he accordingly proceeded to draw up such directions as be thought would be suitable, and submitted them to some of the members ; but a doubt having arisen in his mind he addressed the following letter to the Colonial Secretary on the subject. "Morpeth, October 23rd, 1843. " Sir-There being nothing in the act 5 and 6 Victoria to direct the manner of the assessment, I shall feel obliged if you will inform me, for the direction of the assessors, in what way clearing leases are to be managed -- whether landlord or tenant is to be levied upon on account of them.

At the close of our correspondent's letter in our last the Council was still sitting, and the house went into committee on the Registry Bill, and the schedules were gone through and adopted without any alteration of importance. A good deal of discussion took place on the tenth clause, which had been postponed at a former meeting, but before anything could be determined upon, there were not a sufficient number of members to constitute a house, and the Council accordingly adjourned. Friday, December 1.

THE MILITARY AT NEWCASTLE. The following address from several of the most respectable inhabitants of Newcastle to Major Last, in reference to the alleged disorderly conduct of the soldiers under his command, has been forwarded to us with a request that we would give it publicity.

SYDNEY NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 9 December 1843

SYDNEY NEWS. During a heavy squall on Friday, the 1st instant, Robinson's Floating Baths, in Woolloo- mooloo Bay, were completely destroyed. The loss to Mr. Robinson is said to be not far short of £1000. A subscription has been commenced to assist him. A meeting of the proprietors of the Com- mercial Bank was held on Friday, to take into consideration whether the whole of the paid up capital of the bank can be advantageously em- ployed at present, and to determine whether it was not advisable, under existing circumstances, to authorise the directors to purchase up any and what amount of shares now in the market. It appeared that nearly £40,000 of capital is now lying idle, and it was suggested that as much as could be conveniently returned should be shared rateably among the shareholders; but the chairman decided that this question could not be entered into, and thought a portion of the capital might be used by advancing upon wool. A resolution was agreed to, authorising the directo...

THE MAITLAND MERCURY. SATURDAY, DECEMBER 9, 1843. HUNTER RIVER SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 9 December 1843

THE MAITLAND MERCURY. SATURDAY, DECEMBER 9, 1843. HUNTER RIVER SOCIETY. A meeting of the provisional committee and the friends of the above society was held on Thursday last, at the Northum- berland Hotel.

We trust the people of Maitland and the neigh- bourhood will for once endeavour to shake off their usual apathy in matters of a public nature, and make an effort to bring into active existence a society which may be made the means of conferring grea...

The wallS are still traceable, and also some huge piles of bricks, which served as foundations of the palaces of the kings of Assyria.

THE CULTURE OF THE VINE. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 9 December 1843

THE CULTURE OF THE VINE. We are glad to perceive that the dis- cussion on the culture of the vine is exciting some attention among the settlers of the district, and we have much pleasure in laying before our readers the following communication on the subject from an esteemed correspondent: " Referring to Mr. Warren's very appropriate letter on Vine Growing and Wine Making, it is most encouraging, amidst the general despond- ency which is settling down so dismally on the aspect of colonial enterprise,to be assured, on the testimony of so competent an authority, that New South Wales is destined to be " a great wine country." Nothing, surely, can be so gratifying at the present moment, as to learn, from the lips of an actual grower of colonial wine, so flattering an estimation of this country's capabilities for the growth of so valuable a product, gathered out of the veritable results of his own experiments on the subject. The whole colony is deeply interested in this matter ; and Mr. ...
