The Theatre.—A new season at this establishmcnt is to commence to-morrow evening, and we are glad to hear that additional strength is to be enlisted, a higher grade of per- formances to be attempted, and a more respectable auditory to be aimed at. Some improvement has long been wanted, and we feel convinced that Melbourne is now a place of sufficient import- ance, and that there is ample disposition for rati- onal recreation amongst us, to encourage the management in some attempt at elevating the character of the performances. Mr. and Mrs. &nbsp; &nbsp; Young, favourably remembered as forming a portion of Coppin's admirable corps, are expected shortly, with a Mrs. Thomson from Van Di-emen's Land, and Mr. Hyde from Sydney, whose crisp, naive and gentlemanly manner places him at the head of the actors of genteel comedy in these colonies. repaid.

The Argus. &nbsp; I am in the place where I am demanded of conscience to speak the truth, and therefore the truth I speak, impugn it whoso list." &nbsp; TUESDAY, MARCH 20, 1849. No Pollution. We cannot even imagine language suffi- ciently powerful to express the un- bounded gratification we feel at having it in our power to announce that Port Phil- lip is not to be subjected to the stain of pollution—that convictism is to have no abiding place amongst us. The report of the interview with his Excellency the Governor, of the deputa- tion appointed at the late public meet- ing, which is given in another column, furnishes this welcome intelligence. No convicts are to be landed here, and any that may arrive are to be ordered off to Sydney. It of course does not detract from the pleasure we enjoy in communi- cating this joyous intelligence, that we feel we may very fairly take cre- dit to ourselves for having done some- thing in bringing about this happy con- summation.
