Tuesday 19 April 1864, The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser

(From the Armidale Express, April 16.)

We have bad some beautiful weather during the week, but Thursday night got cloudy from the eastward, and we had a little fine rain at intervals yesterday, with a dull sky.

Several Chinamen were brought before the Uralla bench on the 4th, 6th, and 7th of April, charged with murdering Ah Moon, who was killed in a row, and one of them, Chuey Wey, was committed to take his trial for manslaughter at the next Armidale Quarter Sessions.

Flour is very scarce at Glen Innes.

The news from the country districts is unimportant. The weather generally after the recent rains had taken up, and was fine.

Scab Director – At the meeting of sheepowners in the Armidale court-house, on Saturday last, Captain Williamson, of Kangaroo Hills, was chosen a sheep director, in lieu of Mr. R. Hargrave, resigned.
