SEPARATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 12 June 1846
SEPARATION. WE give elsewhere the debate in the Legislative Council on Mr. Brewster's motion for the production of the Separa- tion papers, which it will be seen has been met with a decided negative. Strange as it may seem we confess our- selves truly glad of this result, for we feared a much worse would have followed a motion which we cannot otherwise characterize than as extremely injudicious. We give Mr. Brewster every credit foi the best in- tentions in moving in the matter, and we participate largely in his anxiety to be in possession of the fullest information as to what has been said and done on the sub- ject of the reference to the Executive Council from the Home Government.— We cannot help thinking, however, that there was a sad want of policy in unne- cessarily hazarding a discussion on the subject of separation with our tried ene- j mies in the Legislative Council, when everything was going on so well else- where, and we dreaded when we saw the step the honorable and lear...

IMPORTANT ENGLISH NEWS. BY the RIFLEMAN arrived at Sydney, we have English intelligence to the 12th February. Parliament was opened on the 22nd January, by the Queen in person. The following was the speech from the throne :— MY LORDS AND GENTLEMEN, It gives me great satisfaction again to meet you in Parliament, and to have the opportunity of recurring to your assistance and advice. &nbsp; I continue to receive from my allies, and from &nbsp; other foreign powers, the strongest assurances of the desire to cultivate the most friendly relations with this country. I rejoice that, in concert with the Emperor of &nbsp; Russia, and through the success of our joint medi- ation, I have been enabled to adjust the differ- enees which had long prevailed between the Otto- &nbsp; man Porte and the King of Persia, and had se- riously endangered the tranquillity of the East.

PROFIT AND LOSS. (From the Colonial Gazette, Dec. 27.) [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 12 June 1846
PROFIT AND LOSS. (From the Colonial Gazette, Dec. 27..) THIS is the season at which careful men and good managers balance their books. Let us see how our colonial accounts stand-set off the annual profit against the annual loss. I Imprimis, then :-We have lost a year. Matters are actually at this present Christmas, 1843, pretty nearly or alto- gether where they were at the same time in 1844. The Squatters in Australia are j where they were ; New Zealand is worse than it was ; the West Indies, except for the progress they are beginning to make | by their own exertions, are in statu quo. There has been a great deal of discussion during the year ; many facts have been placed in a true light ; many fallacies have been shelved ; but no action has yet been taken upon the new and better ] lights. Ministers, and legislators, and private individuals have been put in a condition to act more wisely next year than they have done in years past. But whether they will remain in the category of pos...
MR. CAUDLE'S BREAKFAST TALK. CHAPTER IV. SHOWING HOW CAUDLE, HAVING LOST MONEY AT CARDS, DETERMINES TO ABRIDGE THE HOUSE EXPENSES. [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 12 June 1846
MR. CAUDLE'S BREAKFAST TALK. CHAPTER IV. ! SHOWING HOW CAUDLE, HAVING LOST MONEY AT CARDS, DETERMINES TO ABRIDGE THE HOUSE EXPENSES. " I don't know how it is, my dear, but when I remember that there's only you and myself-just two of us, and I eat and drink next to nothing-and when I see what other people do with half our money, I do think you might be a little more careful. I'm sure I spend no money on myself-none. Nobody cari be more watchful of every sixpence; but of course a man can save but little when he knows -or, that is, when he fears he knows that everything's going to waste at home. Besides, it's a woman's place-particu- larly a woman's place-to save. Women were designed for it. Economy is one of the noblest vii tues bound up with matri- mony. There can be very little real love, Mrs. Caudle, where economy's neg- lected. A woman can't truly care for a man's heart, unless she has an equal re- gard for his pocket ; the things go to- gether, and always did from the first. " No...
Domestic Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 12 June 1846
Domestic Intelligence THE POLICE OFFICE PRACTITIONERS. Another of the Police Office practitioners -Mr. Francis Stephen (a recently-ad- mitted attorney of the Supreme Court), has fallen into disgrace with the magi- strates, and is prohibited from practising at the Police Office bar. Mr. Stephen's offence was insolence to the Mayor, who had excited his ire by deciding against one of his clients. After several days grace allowed, and no apology forth- coming, his Worship promulgated an order prohibiting Mr. Stephen from prac- tising before him. (Since the above was written, we learn that Mr. Stephen has sent in a written apology, for the consi- deration of which the Mayor has con- tened a meeting of the Town magistrates.) THE LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. - Private letters from members of the Legislative Council state that it is expected the pre- sent session of the Legislative Councd will not last beyond the middle of the coming month.

O, sic a wife, and, O, and sic a woman, Pity it is sic folk are na rife But Tibby was something mair than common, Or she ne'er would hue boen John Thamson's wife.

LINES WRITTEN ON HEARING A FRIEND EXPRESSING REGRET THAT TIME WAS PASSING so RAPIDLY AWAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 12 June 1846
LINES WRITTEN ON HEARING A FRIEND EXPRES- &nbsp; SING REGRET THAT TIME WAS PASSING SO &nbsp; RAPIDLY AWAY. &nbsp; WHY murmur thus that time so fleet, Speeds on its noiseless, ceaseless way 1 Or why that sigh of deep regret, That marks the close of flick'ring day. Has peace unmingled mark'd those hours, Which sleep with things that once have been? Or has thy path been strewn with flowers, That thus you 'd tread it o'er aguin. Tell me has the past e'er seen thee shed, The tear we seldom wish to flow 1 Has it e'er seen thee weeping led Within the gloomy haunts of woo. Art thou afraid that time too soon, I | Will write its wrinkles on thy cheek ? Too soon proclaim life's glass near run, And all your spell-bound fancies break. Or dost thou fear lest grisly agc, Too soon will furrow deep thy brow Too soon the warmth of youth assuoge And quench the flume which' brightens now 1 On, onward time, with rapid speed, The past with all its woesibegone ; "Would it were mine...
