FASHIONS FOR MAY. (From the London and Paris Ladies' Magazine of Fashion.) [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 15 September 1848

FASHIONS FOR MAY. (From the London and Paris Ladies' Magazine of Fashion.) Very elegant materials are in use for evening dress, brocarts with large pat- terns in orange colour, having by candle light the effect of gold ; others are of black grounds, with wreaths of roses or flowers of showy colours, ondées satins and gauzes sprigged in stars of gold, or silk reps, broches, &c. Sky blue and violet are the prevailing colours ; pale blue for young ladies, and deep violet for the more advanced, which latter colour is also much used for high dresses and for mantelets and pelerines, harmonizing in color with the dress for these toilets; black lace is well suited ; foulards and bareges again constitute the most elegant negligés ; we have also toiles de laine   glacés and embroidered, new popelines and checked taffetas ; the last are in small checks in which white prevails, and are adapted for young ladies. Many of the spring redingotes are ornamented with buttons, othe...

Domestic Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 15 September 1848

Domestic Intelligence. Municipal -Though Melbourne has the start of Sydney this year in municipal elec- tioneering we observe by the Sydney newspapers received yesterday, that the Sydney citizens are getting on the alert. Mr Smidmore, the retiring Councillor for Brisbane Ward, has annouced his intention of offering himself for re-election, and Mr Thomas, the undertaker, is in the field to oppose him. Mr Hood, formerly Alderman for Cook Ward, is to be invited to stand for Mac- quarie Ward, and Mr Pech, the extensive grocer, has acceded to a numerously signed requisition inviting him to stand for that ward. Mr J W. Smart, late of the Sydney Bank, was to be invited to stand for Cook Ward. Mr. Neale, the re tiring Councillor for Phillip Ward, is also to offer himself for re-election. The Burgess Roll - We beg to remind our readers in the city, that this is the latest day allowed by law for lodging claims and objections for the Burgess Roll of the ensuing year.

PUBLIC MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 15 September 1848

PUBLIC MEETING. On Wednesday last, a meeting was held at the Royal Hotel, pursuant to public requisition, of the inhabitants, of the city and district, to deter- mine upon the measures to be adopted with re- ference to the election of Members for Port Phillip, new writs having been issued by his Excellency the Governor, "manifesting thereby   the determination of the Government to force upon the electors a representation declared to be injurious to the District." The meeting was numerously and respectably attended. His Worship the Mayor was called to the chair. Edward Curr, Esq., said he had a few obser- vations to make, and three resolutions to submit for the consideration of the meeting, which he trusted would meet with the approbation of all   non-electionists. He pointed out an article in the Geelong Advertiser upon the subject of non- election, which met with his cordial support, and entreated the electors to unite as one man in a memorial to his Excel...

COUNTRY NEWS. (FROM OUR WARRNAMBOOL CORRESPONDENT.) [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 15 September 1848

COUNTRY NEWS. (FROM OUR WARRNAMBOOL CORRESPONDENT.) A punctual correspondent is generally considered the best, and I am sorry to say, Mr. Editor (for my own part) that you possess the two extremes in this par- ticular, for while your Seymour corres- pondent is that punctual, that your readers might as well look for no Argus, as for no news from Seymour, your Warr- nambool correspondent has been silent these six weeks, but really this place is going a-head so fast, and business is so pressing, that it would require the aid of the " Steam Arm," to keep up a regular correspondence. For the past week Warrnambool has been the scene of jolity and sport; racing has been the order of the day, and we are evidently rising in the estimation of sporting characters, who have not inaptly termed the occasion as the "Spring   Meeting." The Races commenced on Saturday last, for sweepstakes of £10 for all un- trained horses, heats twice round the course, which was nobly won by Paddy Slat...

Domestic Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 15 September 1848

Domestic Intelligence     Capture of the Van Diemen's Land Bushrangers.-In the South Australian Register of the 28th June we announced the escape of four bushrangers from Van Diemen's Land, through the connivance of the captain of an American whaler, and that information had been received that South Australia was likely to be honored with a visit from the marauders. We also stated that pre- parations to receive the unwelcome guests were made by the proper authorities. We have now to describe the principal incidents that occurred since they were taken on board the whaler at Waterhouse Island until they were safely placed in gaol last evening. On the vessel's arriving off Kangaroo Island, the bush- rangers began to grow uneasy and de- sirous of getting away from the ship. They accordingly tampered with some of the crew, who consented to assist in seizing a boat, and absconded with them. On the night of the 10th of July, they bade farewell to the vessel, havin...

BOURKE WARD. To the Editor of the Argus. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 15 September 1848

BOURKE WARD. To the Editor of the Argus. Mr. Editor,-At a meeting of Mr Smith friends last Thursday, Mr Councillor Armitstead made a very silly display in heaping gratuitous abuse on Mr Rankin, because he aspired to Mu- nicipal honours side by side with his consequen- tial self and Mr Smith, at the same time inform- ing his admiring auditors "that placing Mr Rankin as a candidate in opposition to Mr Smith, is a gross insult to the whole of the Burgesses of Bourke Ward." This is such an extraordinary assertion, that none but Mr Armitstead himself could make it ; for surely the majority of the Burgesses of the Ward are able to judge for them- selves, at all events it cannot be supposed by supporting Mr Rankin that they are offering . gross insult to themselves individually. But I will just ask this " most potent, grave, and reve- rend" Councillor, whether it would not have been a grosser insult to the burgesses and the Town Council, had Mr Rankin previously made the acquaintance of th...

PORT PHILLIP NON-ELECTIONS. To the Editors of the Sydney Morning Herald. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 15 September 1848

PORT PHILLIP NON-ELECTIONS. To the Editors of the Sydney Morning Herald. Gentlemen-It would be difficult to find amongst the records of the Press of even New South Wales evidence of more intense malevolence than that which you have for many years displayed towards the people of Port Phillip. It is not sur- prising, therefore, though not the less diabolically wicked, that you should have seized upon the recent refusal of the Electors to return Members to the Coun- cil of the united Colony, to pour out the phials of your wrath upon their devoted heads. But is this vituperation, let me ask, the whole, or even the chief busi- ness of your profession ? If masses of men become, in your opinion, singularly perverse and wicked, what avails it to tell them that they are so, without going to the root of the evil, and enquiring into the causes of their extraordinary perversion, for until these be ascertained, how can you determine whether they are not more sinned against than sinning- how can ...
