HUNTER RIVER DISTRICT NEWS. [FROM OUR CORRESPONDENTS.] NEWCASTLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 6 January 1844

HUNTER RIVER DISTRICT NEWS. [FROM OUR CORRESPONDENTS.] NEWCASTLE. CORONER's INQUESTS.—On Saturday last an     inquest was held at Mr. McGreavy's, the   Victoria Inn, on view of the body of Charles   Clarke, a butcher, an immigrant. The deceased had been missing ever since the evening of Christmas Day, and although diligent search was made for him by his friends and relatives no tidings were heard of him until Friday morning last, when his remains were found floating in the harbour, by the crew of the boat attached to Nobby's Island, at only a few rods distance from the ballast wharf. After a very long and patient investigation, a verdict was returned that the deceased had destroyed himself during a fit of temporary insanity. The deceased, from his vocal powers, and from his possessing a knowledge of music of no ordinary degree, was well known to the inhabitants of this town. He was the leader of a choir of singers inferior to none ...

HUNTER RIVER SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 6 January 1844

HUNTER RIVER SOCIETY. On Thursday last a public meeting of the members of the Hunter River Society was held at the Northumberland Hotel, West Maitland. The Rev. Mr. Stack was in the chair. The Chairman said as they had honored him by calling him to the chair, it was his duty to explain why they had assembled on the present occasion ; it was in accordance with a resolution passed on the 10th March last year, which was as follows.—"That the society do not attempt   to carry its objects into effect sooner than January, 1844. That a public meeting be called on the first Thursday in that month, and in the meanwhile the society be entrusted to the care of the provisional committee." In accor- dance with that resolution the provisional committee met about a month back, and decided upon calling the society together, and they were now met to consider whether they should attempt to carry out the objects of the society at the present meeting. If any gentle- man had a resolution to...

SYDNEY NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 13 January 1844

SYDNEY NEWS. On Tuesday, January 2nd, the Parramatta quarter sessions commenced, but no business was entered into, as it appeared Mr. Cheeke, the Crown Prosecutor, had received notice that his duties were concluded on the 31st December, and no person had been appointed to supply his place. On the Wednesday the court opened at the usual hour, when the Chairman stated that a commission had been issued to Mr. Rogers, the Clerk of the Peace, to prosecute by information the cases to be tried at the Parramatta, Sydney, and Berrima courts of quarter sessions ; but that he feared, on perusing the commission, that there was a fatal defect in it. Messrs. Callaghan, Purefoy, and Nichols objected to and urged arguments against Mr. Rogers acting, on the ground that the present Crown Prosecutor, having been appointed by commission under the sign manual, could not be summarily superseded by the Governor ; and that Mr. Rogers was not qualified, as he was not a barrister. Ultimately, the Chairman ad...

HUNTER RIVER AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 13 January 1844

HUNTER RIVER AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY. On Thursday last the adjourned public meeting of the above society was held at the Rose Inn, West Maitland. Mr. H. I. Pilcher in the chair. The CHAIRMAN said the meeting had been convened principally to elect the officers for the current year; those officers were a president, vice president, secretary, and a committee of | twenty-one members, who had power to add to their numbers ; and the first business of the day would be to appoint the officers ; and as the society was now merely an agricultural society it. might be a consideration whether it was necessary to continue so large a number on the committee.

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. To the Stockholders and Graziers of the Upper Hunter district. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 13 January 1844

ORIGXHTAXi CORRESPONDENCE. To the Stockholders and Graziers of the Upper Hunter district. GENTLEMEN-The supineness and apathy which has unhappily pervaded the energies of the stockholders for so long a period past is, let us hope, about to be dispelled. The important secret has at length been discovered that a new vein of wealth lies within the reach of the colo- nists, and that wool, so long the staple article of export, is not the only available product of the colony. Beef, tallow, and hides have formed, as will be seen on reference to our shipping intelli- gence, no very unimportant items in our exports for the last few months, and the account of sales of all these articles lately received are of the most gratifying character, proving beyond doubt that remunerating, and more than remunerating, prices can be obtained in the English markets, Indeed, within the last few days the writer has been credibly informed that a gentleman in Sydney who had paid particular attention to the cur...
