THE MAITLAND MERCURY. SATURDAY, JANUARY 20, 1844. THE VINE. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 20 January 1844

TñWmMTLAWI) MERCURY; , -SATURDAY, JANUARY 2% 1844." THE VINE. WE cannot but take some credit to our -selves for being early in the field of exhortation among our fellow colonists, on the important subject of vine cultivation. Thanks to our willing correspondents, we have been able to place before the general public notes of the valuable experience on this subject, of some of our most successful colonial wine growers. It is by giving publicity to tile individual experiments of intelligent wine lords* who have given attention to the culture of the grape and the growth of wine in the colony, that we con- ceive the greatest good will be done in this department cf colonial enterprise. Our Agricultural Society will, no doubt, direct its attention to this, among other important interests involved in their proceedings; and in the meantime we beg leave to lend our humble efforts in aid of giving impetus <to a pursuit which we consider inseparable from this colony's future advancem...

CHEESE still continues a drug in the market, the highest price for the very best dairy being at 4d per lb. BUTTER of very good quality is much in de- mand and very scarce, it is worth 9d to 10d. Inferior qualities are not worth sending, the market being overstocked with it. BACON AND HAMS.-Low in price, and merely nominal.

SYDNEY NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 20 January 1844

SYBNEY NEWS. A meeting took place on Friday week of stockholders and others interested in the southern district, at the Royal Hotel; about twenty gentlemen were present. The object of the meeting was to induce some practical man to take a number of butchers and labourers to Goulburn with the necessary apparatus for a boiling down establishment on a large scale, each settler pledging himself to send a certain number of sheep and cattle, in order that the party might know what he had to depend upon. After a lengthy conversation it appeared to be the general opinion that it would be inexpedient to form a company; and that the best way would be to promise to support the establishment in the manner proposed. A committee was formed, and a meeting held by them the same evening, at which Mr. J. F. King stated his intention of proceeding to Goulburn for the purpose of forming an establishment for boiling down. COLONIAL BEEF.-A letter has been addressed to the Herald by Mr. J. W. Williams, th...

COLONIAL INTELLIGENCE. PORT PHILLIP. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 27 January 1844

COX.ONXAÏI INTElIiICElffCE. PORT PHILLIP. NEW ARTICLE or EXPORT.-A quantity of tanned leather has been sent home by the Rajah, made from colonial hides, tanned with colonial bark, and the process carried on hy colonial labour. Should this speculation succeed, it will be a vast improvement on the present method of sending the raw hides and the bark in bulk to tan them with in England. It must be evident that the operation of tanning can be performed in this colony with great advantage.-Geelong Advertiser. PRICES OF STOCK.-We observe a temporary improvement in the price of stock. At Mr. Bear's sale on Thursday last, good mares, with foal,'and'in foal, brought on the average about £20 per head; decent saddle horses, from £15 to £17 ; and old screws of stock horses from £10 to £12 freely.

THE VINE. To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 27 January 1844

THE VINE. To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. GENTLEMEN-I.-have read and listened to much lately on the subject of the culture of the grape vine and the making of wine in this colony. Your correspondents, too, on that subject, are numerous, and their contributions are naturally of various degrees of merit. All, however, unite in the opinion that it would be much to our interest immediately to plant the vine with the object of making vine. Some of them have endeavoured to show from their experience that our soil and climate are pecu- liarly fitted for its successful culture (which no one will question) ; others < have attempted to throw a'degree of solemn mystery over the "very simple matter of making the wine -(a process much less complicated than brewing beer) ; and they consider, too, "the mere matter of pruning and training" as unworthy of any serious con- sideration (things of sheer whim or fancy), when, in fact, they are the most important operations in the whole...

COMMERCIAL REMARKS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 27 January 1844

COMMERCIAL REMARKS. The continued rain in the eaily part of the week, while it has produced a wonderful change for the better m the crops and pastures, for the time almost stopped the trafile on the roads to Maitland, making them heavy, and in ¡many places almost impassable ; consequently, but a small quantity of wool, comparatively, came into town this week, and we have not heard of any transactions in it. In fact, with one or two exceptions all our storekeepers say that business has been quite at a stand-still since the rain set in. One of these lias done¡a good deal of business hy taking ,orders, brought down by the men with the wool drays, but they are generally looked on very suspiciously now. , The same cause,has operated against any quantity of wheat or maize being brought to market. In wheat we have heard,'of one transaction at 4s. per bushel; but the price given wholesale for forwarding to Sydney is but 2s. 9d. 'to 3s. 3d., according,to quality. Very little has been donetin...
