COUNTRY NEWS. [FROM OUR SEYMOUR CORRESPONDENT.] [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 10 October 1848

COUNTRY NEWS.   [From our Seymour correspondent.]       After a week of storm und rain, we are now in the enjoyment of summer weather. The pre- sent season has been more unsettled than any previous one I remember, during my residence in Port Phillip. The country looks exceedingly beautiful at this period, being covered with an abundance of young grass of the brightest hue. The settlers will not   have occasion to complain of the want of grass and water this summer, a want which last year was severely felt. Shearing is the order of the day and conse-   quently a busy time upon most stations. Some of the Squatters, for reasons it would be difficult to assign are so ill-advised as to shear in the grease ; surely it must strike the most unobser- vant mind, that at a period when the fall in the wools of this District, in the Home Market, has been greater than at any previous sales, the Squatter would exert hims...

SUPREME COURT. IN CHAMBERS. Monday, October 9th, 1848. Before his Honor the Resident Judge. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 10 October 1848

SUPREME COURT. IN CHAMBERS. Monday, October 9th, 1848. Before his Honor the Resident Judge. Chessal a. M'Kenzie.—In this case a Judge's summons had been taken out by the defendant to shew cause why a writ of ca re issued at the suit of plaintiff returnable this morning, should not be dismissed for irregularity. the grounds upon which the summons was issued were, that   the plaintiff should have given eight days notice for special bail in lieu of four, the time specified   Mr. Stawell who appeared to oppose the sum-   mons, contended that the practice hitherto in that Court was to make the ca re and summons returnable at the same time ; and as this was a town case the proper period had been granted. Mr. Williams replied at length in support of the summons. His Honor reserved judgment.

SYSTEMATIC COLONIZATION. (From the Times, May 22.) [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 10 October 1848

SYSTEMATIC COLONIZATION.   (From the Times, May 22.) I Does it ever occur to the Government or   individuals to estimate the expense of maintaining a single pauper throughout   the year in a workhouse under ordinary   circumstances? Do thiey further take in-   to consideration the average number of persons who receive occasional out-door   relief in the different parishes of England ?   Do they count up the whole expenditure which, under the system of local taxation is annually incurred for the support of the recognized poor ? But if they do this, do they reflect on the sums which no com- pulsory assessment could extort, but which private and often nameless charity freely bestows on those who, though they are not classified as paupers, yet receive most substantial and necessary aid from our infirmaries, hospitals, dispensaries and local societies ? We suspect that few persons who have not some...

Original Correspondence. To the Editor of the Argus. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 10 October 1848

Original Correspondence. To the Editor of the Argus. Mr. Editor.—The interest excited by the recent publication, on the subject of VI. and VII. Vials of the Apocalypse of St. John, induces me to trouble you with the following very " remarkable co- incidence of Epochs and Prophecy" on the subject of the recent French revolu- tion. It is copied from one of the most ably conducted of the Scottish papers. I make no remark on the singular clear- ness of the application, but leave it for the serious consideration of your religious readers. J. L. 24th Sept., 1848. The prophecy of Daniel (VIII ch. 13, 14, v.) that there should be a period of desolation of 2300 days or years, has been, as much as any passage of Scrip- ture, a subject of anxious investigation, by almost every writer on prophecy. In our authorised version of the scriptures, the following are the words, the date on the margin being " Before Christ 553" :— " Then I heard one saint speaking, and another saint said unto that certa...

COUNTRY NEWS. [FROM OUR SEYMOUR CORRESPONDENT.] [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 10 October 1848

COUNTRY NEWS. [FROM OUR SEYMOUR CORRESPONDENT.]   The weather during the past week has been most unsettled, gales of wind, heavy rains, and thunder storms have succeeded each other almost without intermission. We are now enjoying the invigorating influences of a fine westerly breeze and a clear sky. The waters of the Goulburn have risen several inches, but not suffi- cient to cause apprehension. The roads between this Townsip and Melbourne have improved slightly, and   there has been a corresponding increase in the traffic. On Saturday the Rev. Mr. Geoghegan arrived here, from town, on his way to Yass, where he will meet the Rev. Mr. Goold, the Roman Catholic Bishop for Melbourne, and accompany that dignity to his diocese. The Rev. Mr. G. cele- brated mass on the other side of the river, and several infant members were received into the bosom of the Romish Church through the sacrament of baptism. The Rev. Mr. Geoghegan, I verily believe, is the first clergy...

EMIGRATION OF IRISH ORPHANS. (From the Sydney Morning Herald.) [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 10 October 1848

EMIGRATION OF IRISH ORPHANS. (From the Sydney Morning Herald.)   In the Herald of the 6th September, we copied from the South Australian Go- vernment Gazette a despatch from Earl Grey to the Officer administering the Government of the colony, dated 28th February last, on the subject of the pro- posed removal to this part of the world of large numbers of Irish orphans. With the despatch were enclosed extracts from a report addressed to his Lordship by the Land and Emigration Commissioners, and from a paper which those officers had drawn up for transmission to the Irish Government. In the same num- ber of our journal we also re-published an official notification that the Lieu-   tenant- Governor of South Australia had   appointed certain Right Reverend,   Reverend, and other gentlemen, "to be a Committee for the protection and guardianship of the orphans expected to arrive from Ireland." From the appointment of this Com- mittee, it would appear t...

The Argus.   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."   TUESDAY, OCTOBER 10, 1848. MR. CURR v. THE PRESS. The big "Rat of St. Heliers" has in-   dulged himself in the following observa- tions with regard to the press of Port Phillip in a letter to a contemporary :—   Permit me to put a few questions, to the fair-     ness and candour of my fellow colonists. I shall ask them in no vaunting spirit, but simply as be- ing forced from me by the necessity of replying to the weight of calumny with which the press of Port Philip has loaded me. When any of the   great ínterests of this District are at stake, (I ex- pressly exclude partisan questions,) or when any great effort for its welfare is to be made, who is sure to be found at his post? Who is expected, as if by common consent, to suggest the course to be adopt...

Original Poetry. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 10 October 1848

Original Poetry. Impromptu on reading in an Irish newspaper that nine hundred thousand Orangemen had pre- sented a loyal address to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, and offered at a few days notice to raise a force of ten thousand armed men to de fend the laws and Constitution against the   Catholic movement in that country. A NEW ORANGE SONG. For the Argus. When treason rais'd her bloody hand And spread rebellion through the land, A noble and devoted band Of Orangemen alone, Ready to enter on her wars, And to protect their country's cause, And to support her glorious laws, Her Altars and the Throne. In numbers near a million strong, A noble and a gallant throng, Whose deeds in story and in song, Have of't pass'd in review, With swelling heart and glancing eye, They rais'd their banner to the sky— See it now floating proud and high, The Orange and the Blue. Can Erin be in danger then, While she can find a million men, Collect on mountain, moor, and glen, And ready to def...

Select Poetry. ORANGE SONG.   Come cheer up my lads 'tis to glory we steer,   For true Orange hearts are still strangers to fear; Our bosoms with honour and loyalty glow, And fearless we'll march to encounter the foe. Chorus. Oh still may our flag be with lustre unfurled; Let's always be ready, steady, boys, steady, And true to ourselves we'll defy the whole world.   The Queen and the state and the laws of this land, The good constitution our forefathers planned, To maintain them we all with one voice should agree,   For while they protect us our country is free. Oh still may our flag &c. &c. The hand of oppression we never need fear, Our laws are the same for the peasant and peer ; Our house is our castle, our fireside our throne, And each man in our country is sure of his own. Oh still may our flag &c. &c. Republican frenzy her standard may rear, And disloyalty seek to pollute our free air; But our...

On purpose to promote this object, we have agreed to form ourselves, and such other persons as may feel disposed to join us, into a body to be called " The Port Phillip Farmers Society."

THE (LATE) MOONEE PONDS FARMERS SOCIETY. To the Editor of the Argus. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 10 October 1848

THE (late) MOONEE PONDS FARMERS SOCIETY. To the Editor of the Argus. Sir, — At a meeting of the Committee of Ma- nagement of the above Society, which took place pursuant to advertisements, at the store of Messrs Thomson and Duncan, Great Bourke-street, Mel- bourne, on the 18th of August last, the enclosed Rules und Regulations, for the ensuing match, were approved of unanimously by the Committee. The most important alteration from the original Code, as you will observe, was changing the name "Moonee Ponds Farmers' Society " to " Port   Phillip Farmers' Society." The Committee sanguinely hope that by thus changing the name of the Society, the sphere of its operations and usefulness will be extended ; and that outlandish folks will have no plausible ex- cuse for not furthering the good cause. The Committee also confidently expect that the Editor of the Argus (from his having from the outset taken such a warm interest in the proceedings of the Society,) will give an insert...

His worship said he   could not act in the matter, as it appeared the   local government were of opinion the Governor's   sanction must first be obtained; if the applicant   would take the certificate up to the Superinten- dent's Office, and ascertain whether the magis-   trates had any jurisdiction independent of Sydney   &am...
