Tuesday 10 July 1866, The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser

(From the Tamworth Examiner’s Correspondent.)

July 2 – News literally nothing. In the land department the summary of free selections and purchases for the quarter amounts to 1000 acres or thereabouts. There is to be a land sale at Moree on the 9th instant, and I hear that the competition will be unusually sharp.

Chong, the Chinaman in the lockup accused of sticking up, remains there still, awaiting the production of witnesses.

Weather most agreeably changed, it is more like an English mild summer than an Australian winter. Grass growing everywhere.

Our bank is progressing.
