Commercial Intelligence. MELBOURNE MARKETS March 23, 1849. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 23 March 1849
Commercial Intelligence. &nbsp; MELBOURNE MARKETS &nbsp; March 23, 1849. Grain.—The upward tendency of the Sydney &nbsp; market, and the prudence of the farmers here in not supplying the market too largely for the ex- isting demand, have prevented a fall in the price of wheat taking place, and given a firmness to the market which it has not had for some weeks past. Every species of grain is plentiful. The follow- ing are the prices current:—Wheat, 3s. to 3s. 3d. per bushel ; English barley, 3s. to 3s. 6d, ; oats, 2s. 3d. to 3s. ; maize, none. Flour.— During last week, the seconds of this article fell 10s. per ton, and is now £8 10s. &nbsp; First quality is selling at £10. &nbsp; Hay—£2 5s. and plentiful. Potatoes are still scarce, and as high as £5 per ton.

MR. KENNEDY'S EXPEDITION. JOURNAL OF MR. CARRON. &nbsp; (Concluded from our last.) &nbsp; Nov. 19th. Thermometer, sunrise 88, noon 102, sunset 92. Wind south-east Thunder and lightning all day ; the natives came th¡s morning very strongly armed, to the number of fifty or sixty ; I could see at once they had no good intentions ; we all turned out with our arms before they got near the camp ; I made signs to them to keep back ; I did not intend to fire at them unless they threw a spear, being anxious to avoid firing if possible; I read prayers this morning at 11 o'clock. 20th.

THE BUILDING SOCIETIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 23 March 1849
THE BUILDING SOCIETIES. &nbsp; We have already shown the very large profits made by a borrower from a build- ing society, if he is careful not to allow either mis-calculation, or a momentary excitement to induce him to offer too large a discount in the first instance, and if he also take care that the proceeds of his purchase are invested with proper pre- caution and economy. The following table will show the ample interest re- ceived by the depositor, and we hope that this statement, followed up, as we intend it to be, by a calculation of the compound interest which is likely to be realized, will do away with any tendency that may exist, to an over eagerness to be fingering their money, on the part of shareholders in the societies, and may show them that in quietly paying in their subscriptions, month after month, they are " sowing- their seed upon the waters, which will return to them after many days," and with a far more boun- tiful increase than our friend the Ac- counta...

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." FRIDAY, MARCH 23, 1849. THE FORTHCOMING MEETING. Our hands are so tied pp, with regard to the party mainly implicated in the proceedings which are to be brought under review, at Monday's public meeting, that, if duty to the pub- lic would allow, we would gladly pursue editorially, the same course we have taken privately, and have neither act nor part in the affair. As it is, we will deal with the matter as lightly as we consci- entiously can. It seems indisputable, that the whole of the documents, emanating, or rather which should have emanated from the great Anti-Transportation Meeting of 1847, have been regularly cushioned, or, to speak still more literally, have been allowed to die still-born. It is not shown, nor attempted to be shown, that any one document, of the number, ever left Melbourne. The petition to the Legislative Council, assuredl...
TOWN COUNCIL. Thursday, March 22nd. MINUTES. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 23 March 1849
TOWN COUNCIL. Thursday, March 22nd. MINUTES. The minutes of last meeting were read and con- firmed ; minutes were also read of meetings of the Markets, Finance, and Public Works' Committees the latter reporting the acceptance of a contract &nbsp; for the improvements in Flinders Lane, east of Swanston Strret. THE GOVERNOR'S REPLY. The Town Clerk read the Governor's reply to the address of the Council, which was ordered to be entered on the minutes. PUBLIC WORKS. The Town Clerk laid on the table the return &nbsp; ordered by the Council, showing the tenders for all works performed by contract since the 1st November, 1847, with the names of the tenderers, and the amounts for which they respectively tendered. The return having been read, the Town Clerk, in reply to a question from Councillor Murray, &nbsp; stated with some very trivial exceptions the con- tracts had in ali cases been obtained by the lowest tenderer. &nbsp; Grievances. The Mayor reported v...
THE VICE[?]REGAL VISIT. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 23 March 1849
THE VICE-REGAL VISIT. On Tuesday his Excellency the Governor was occupied during the greater part of the day with interviews, claimed by pri- vate individuals in matters affecting the Government. Among the rest was Mr. Fawkner's ap- plications for costs sustained in arraign- ing at the bar of public opinion an officer of the Government, charged with bribery and corruption in the discharge of his public duty. The Governor refused ac- ceding to the application on the ground that the action brought by Major St. John against Mr. Fawkner was founded upon a voluntary accusation in a news- paper, whereupon Mr. F. determined upon appealing to the Legislative Coun- cil. In the afternoon, his Excellency dined &nbsp; with the Lord Bishop of Melbourne, and drove thence to the Subscription Ball, at the Royal Hotel, which is described as a very grand affair, and being less exclusive than customary, went off with great " eclat." It apppars as if, contrary to custom, the ball passed off ple...
Select Poetry. ELBOW-ROOM. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 23 March 1849
Select Poetry. ELBOW-ROOM. Listen, and mark yon press that wedged in close discomfort stands, Where Labour thrusts on Capital a crowd of craving bands, &nbsp; Where Capital itself is cramped, till stagnant stands the gold, That thro' its limbs, with room to stir, a living tide had rolled. No air to breathe, but at the price—a buffet for a breath ; No space to spare, but what lays bare the scythe of Mower Death. Each foot must tread some fellow's head, or heart, or heel, at best, With smiting hands for helpful, and restlessness for rest. 'Tis England, full and over full ! True—fertile is her soil, But all its growth, trod out by those that have no room to toil : Hearts may be oak, and sinews steel, and arms of Saxon pith: There's work enow for these to win bare standing ing-room therewith. Look, where steam of filthy life the breath of summer taints, Where o'er day and night-long shuttle the hand- loom weaver faints; Where plies the skinny stockinger his labour till he drops ...
