IMPORTANT. [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 2 June 1846
IMPORTANT, IN the announcement which conveyed to the community the first intimation of the intended appearance of the ARGUS, it was prominently stated that a distinguishing feature of the journal would be the pro- mulgation of the news from Sydney, forestalling the overland mail by several hours, and the other journals by the greater part of the day (in the case of the PATRIOT by the whole day.) It will be seen by our columns of to- day, that we have fully redeemed this pledge, the intelligence which will only reach the recipients of the Sydney mail by nine or ten o'clock this morning, and the readers of the other journals not until a late hour in the day, (in the case of the PATRIOT not until to-morrow,) being by six o'clock this morning in the hands of the subscriber to the ARGUS. The advantage which our supporters thus obtain, more particularly the country residents, are so very obvious, that com- ment on the subject is altogether unneces- sary.

Domestic Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 2 June 1846
Domestic Intelligence. LEGISLATION.—The progress of the Bill for the renewal of that monstrous piece of colo- nial legislation—the Bushranging Act—is admi- rably illustrative of the folly of leaving it to a Sydney Legislature to make laws for Port Phil- lip. The Act in question is probably the most unconstitutional measure that was ever allowed to pass into law in any portion of the British empire, its main feature being to empower any- body who fancies he has fallen in with a bush- ranger, to pounce vi et armis upon the object of his suspicions, and without inquiry or further ceremony, carry him off to the nearest watch house and there lodge him in durance vile until a reference to the office of the Principal Superin- tendent of Convicts at Sydney (if perchance the accused has not the means at hand of showing how he came to the colony) determines the suspi- cions of the captor. Nothing but the exigencies of a convict colony could in any way justify the enacting of such a monstrous ...

THE SQUATTING QUESTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 2 June 1846
THE SQUATTING QUESTION. AT length we are in receipt of Lord Stanley's deliverance on the squatting question, and as regular a piece of Stan- leyism it is as it has been our fortune to &nbsp; meet with. His Lordship has received the Report of the Legislative Council on the subject, has read the immense mass of evidence collected by the Select Com- mittee, and he has had interview upon interview with gentlemen from the co- lony, and though one and all are at variance with his views, as expressed in his former despatches, he " sees no rea- son" to alter his opinions. In short, as "Sam Slick" said of him long ago, the &nbsp; focus of his Lordship's telescope is so good that he can see better with it six- teen thousand miles off than the people who are on the spot. The following is Lord Stanley's de- spatch communicating his views in intro- ducing the Bill lately rejected by the Parliament. The Bill itself has been long before the public. It is clear from what his Lordshi...
OURSELVES. [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 2 June 1846
OURSELVES. The generosity of our friends and the liberality of our creditors, (the former rarely, and the latter, we believe, never equalled in the Colony), having placed us in a position again to assume the edi- torial chair, a brief reference to our views and intentions for the future is required of us by immemorial custom. On all the grand questions of colonial policy which have been agitated during the many years which have elapsed since the editor of this journal became con- nected with the press of the province, our opinions are known and unchanged, it is unnecessary, therefore, to say more on this subject than that so long as it is our fortune to have the guidance of any por- tion of the Colonial press, our grand aim shall be the promotion of civil and reli- gious liberty throughout the world. In our mode of conducting our editorial duties, however, we propose one grand reform. While it was the fashion of the newspaper press of the province to make the editor of this journal ...
THE DOWNING-STREET DESPATCHES. (From the Sydney Morning Herald.) [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 2 June 1846
THE DOWNING-STREET DES- PATCHES. (From the Sydney Morning Herald.) THE subjoined series of despatches from Lord Stanley to Governor Sir George Gipps, are probably the last that will come before us under his Lordship's &nbsp; name. Much has been said by our friends of the London Press especially, in condem- nation of the manner in which he had administered the affairs of that huge de- partment from which he has so suddenly retired. The Spectator, speaking of Lord Stanley's loss of office, calls him " the victim of his own misconduct and incapacity as Minister for the Colonies." These words are easily uttered ; but our own experience in Secretaries of State &nbsp; would lead us rather to say, that we think Lord Stanley has been neither much better nor much worse than his pre- decessors, from Lord Bathurst down- wards. And judging from this experience, and from the known vastness, multipli- city, and diversity of the interests with which the Colonial Minister is entrust...

Colonial Secretary's Office, Sydney, 1st May, 1846. Indulgences to Convicts. CIRCUMSTANCES appearing to require a revision of the Regulations under which Tickets-of-Leave and Conditional Pardons are now granted to Prisoners of the Crown in this Colony, his Excellency the Governor is pleased to direct, that the following modifications be adopted in these Regulations from the date hereof- &nbsp; 1. -Without reference to the periods fixed by former Regulations, any Convict who may have served three entire years without punishment, and without any record of misconduct being made against him, may apply in the usual man- &nbsp; ner for a Ticket-of-Leave ; and if on the inves- &nbsp; tigation of his case, he appear to be deserving , of the indulgence, and no legal or other impedi- ment exist to his receiving it, a Ticket-of-Leave will be granted to him, and will remain in force during the Governor's pleasure. 2. -In like manner, any person who may have held a Ticket...
Commercial Entelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 2 June 1846
Commercial Intelligence &nbsp; MANILA SUGAR.--We have not heard of a single transaction in the sugar market during the week, nor is there any probability of any considerable operation taking place while the present state of the markets subsist; absolute want of tonnage freights at seven guineas in China, and the high prices asked for raw sugur by the growers, so much so, that no purchase has been made by the clayers, for which reason no sugar of the new crop can be got ready for shipment before the 15th of April. The prices are, 4½ dollars to 5½ dollars per pecul for white clayed, nominal; 2½ dollars to 3 dollars per pecul, for unclayed zeber, sales ; 2½ dollars to 3 dollars for unclayed taal.—-Cigars. The Govern- ment has given notice to the Chamber of Com- merce, that the deliveries of cigars from the fac- tory, have been suspended until suitable leaf ar- rives for wrappers, and the general opinion is, that no cigars will be delivered till the end of February next, at the ...

[ADVERITSEMENT.] To Mr. George Cavenagh, Editor of the Port Phillip Herald. SIR-As the day of reckoning between us is at length at hand, I avail myself of the libe- rality of the Editor of the Melbourne Argus, to place before the public a brief detailed statement of the treatment I have experienced at your hands, &nbsp; and to afford you a last opportunity of saving yourself from the penalty your own misdeeds have brought down upon your own held. When called by the suffrages of my fellow &nbsp; citizens to an office of trust in the municipality, I was the object of your incessant vituperation. &nbsp; My actions were belied, my language distorted and misrepresented, and the basest motives were un- scrupulously imputed to me whenever it was my misfortune to become the object of comment in the columns of the journal of which you are the conductor. Filling an important public office, I knew myself to be amenable to public criticism and should not have complained ...
