The Maitland Mercury… Wednesday 25 August 1847, page 2.

NORTHERN CEDAR.-On Monday last we
noticed the arrival of some extraordinarily 
large logs of cedar, by the new schooner
built at the Bellinger River for Mr. John
Robertson, Market Wharf: Since then we
have learnt that one-half the cargo (30,000
feet cedar) is the produce of only one tree,
the parent of the immense logs first noticed.
This interesting specimen of Bellinger pro-
duce yielded about 15,000 feet sawn timber,

and realised in Sydney upwards of one hun-
dred guineas. The purchase, we believe, 
has been made for the China market; and as
the quality of this cedar is correspondent
with its magnitude, it will tend, we trust, to
increase the growing repute of Australian
cedar with the Celestials.-S. M. Herald,
August 19.
