THE SETTLED DISTRICTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 27 March 1849

THE SETTLED DISTRICTS. Our readers will recollect that in Decem- ber last, counter-meetings of squatters and landholders were held, for the purpose of petitioning in reference to the reégulations for the occupation of the unsold lands of the Crown in the settled districts ; the former seeking that the regulations which had been prtomulgated should not be brought into operation, in this province, until the grant of separa- tion would admit of a suitable legisla- tion, and the latter petitioning for the preservation of the regulations of 29th March, 1848, in their purity, and the abrogation of the subsequent regulations of 21st November, 1848. The following reply has been received by Dr. Macarthur, J.P., the chairman of the meeting of landholders :— Superintendent's Office, Melbourne, March 13,1849.

MISCELLANEOUS. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 27 March 1849

MISCELLANEOUS.   Declining a Loan.—Many of our readers would perhaps like to learn how to say " No" in a delicate way, to a pro- position for the negociation of a loan. One of the neatest efforts of the kind, and we understand quite a tomei one, occurred the other day. Phil 1 inclined for a trip to the springs, and called upon his friend. "Hal, my dear boy, I'm off for the Capes, and I ii this morning I'm a trifle short—lend me a hundred, will you?"

SUPREME COURT—In Chambers.   Friday, 23rd March, 1849. (Before his Honor the Resident Judge.) In re William Kerr.—In this case,   which was a proceeding instituted by the Judge against the defendant for alleged contempt of court, his Honor gave judg- ment reversing his former decision upon the preliminary objection raised by tbe defendant. His Honor's judgment was as follows :— " In the case of the Editor of the Melbourne Argus, who appeared before me in Chambers, on the 9th December, 1841, to shew cause why he should not stand committed for contempt of this Court, pursuant to Rule made on the last day of the previous Term, it is right that I should state, for the information of the defendant, that the Rule will not be enforced against him. It will be recollected that, on its being made abso- lute, I announced my intention of re- ferring to the decision of the Sydney Court, the point taken by the defendant, that the Rule could not be made abso- lute out of ...

LATEST ENGLISH NEWS. (From the Corio Chronicle.) [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 27 March 1849

LATEST ENGLISH NEWS. (From the Corio Chronicle.) By the Osprey we have received files of newspapers to the end of November. The election for Presldent of the United States took place on the 7th ¡nst. The Europa which brought the result to London, as far as it could then be ascertained, left New York on the 8th, 18 hours after the closing of the poll.   By means of the electric telegraph it was known that General Taylor had received   131 electoral votes against General Cass's 20, in the States nearest to New York. As 146 votes would place the former in an absolute majority, there was no doubt of a triumph beyond even the anticipa- tion of his friends.   The Times highly eulogises the choice of the Americans. " His speeches, his letters, and his whole conduct," says that journal, "show him to be a gentleman, a man of temper, of conciliatory habits, and good sense. The humanity of which he has given many proofs in his military career, has been eq...

EXPORT OF HORSES. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 27 March 1849

EXPORT OF HORSES.   We extract from a late Van Diemen's Land journal, the following letter refer- ing to the subject of exporting horses to India, to which we adverted in our last. Our settlers cannot too soon turn their attention to this subject. As soon as steam communication is established, we shall find this trade, becoming one of very great importance, and we ought to bestir ourselves to secure a share. With po per attention to breeding, there is no part of the whole world, capable of pro- ducing nobler specimens of this noble animal, than the district of Port Phillip, ample proof of which is furnished by this week, of all periods throughout the year.   To the Editor of the Launceston Examiner.   Sir,—In " the eleventh hour" the   Tasmanians have discovered that a good   horse is worth in India from £80 to   £100—it is years since the Sydney folks   made that great discovery.

PUBLIC MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 27 March 1849

PUBLIC MEETING. A meeting was held on Monday at the Mechanics' Institute, convened by the Mayor in reply to a requisition signed by a number of inhabitants to consider the steps necessary to be taken in reference to the suppression of their re- monstrances against the importation of British Criminals, and for exonerating his Honor the Superintendent of the Province who had been censured under erroneous impressions. His Worship the Mayor having taken the chair, read the requisition, and called upon Mr. Fawkner to move the first resolution. Mr. J. P. Fawkner said it would be in the recollection of many persons, that in March, 1847, a public meeting was held at the Queen's Theatre, with the view of preventing the impor- tation of British criminals, at which his Worship the Mayor, Henry Moor, Esq., presided. At a   period antecedent, in December, 1844, a meeting       had been held for the same purpose, at which Mr. Moor also presided....

Original Correspondence. To the Editor of the Argus. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 27 March 1849

Original Correspondence. To the Editor of the Argus. Sir,—In my last, I alluded to a mode by which the interest payable by the Savings Banks of the colony, could be easily doubled without even trenching upon the "vested rights" of the Mel- bourne Leviathan of good things ;—but, Sir, it is a subject, of infinitely more ex- tensive bearing, than the mode in which I have introduced it, would lead one to expect—one which, if adopted, would in my opinion, equally benefit other branches of the community, even of paramount importance, far beyond that we have been discussing—in fact, if I mistake not, it would if adopted on a liberal scale, benefit beyond all calculation, every class in our colonial society—from the most humble labourer or mechanic, to the most elevated     of our Princely Squatting Lords and   Commercial Magnates, as well as the proprietors of lands ! ! Nay, further, it would lay the surest foundation for the rapid increase of Austral...

Select Poetry. CHARADE. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 27 March 1849

Select Poetry. CHARADE. In the busiest haunts of commerce you may see as you pass, Where the newest fashions dazzle through the mammoth panes of glass; Where upon the last bareges coils of gaudy ribbons lie, And gay parasols by hundreds are stack'd up to catch the eye—   Long-fringed Joinvilles, gants de Paris, velvet polkas, sarsenet streamers, Wonderful regatta shirts—all ballet girls, and dogs, and steamers. (Twelve and sixence cost the first ; and very dear, the more's the pity ! But the others, ready made, are three and sixpence in the City.) Where the firm have put their names, in golden letters raised on high, By the side, without a doubt, my first will stand for company. In those deep solitudes and pensive cells,   Where everything that slow and dreary dwells,   Secluded from the living world for aye, My hapless second pines her life away. No vows of truth her dull existence cheer, No word of love are whispered in her ear; She ends her ...

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, MARCH 27, 1849.       THE CONTEMPT CASE. Our readers will find in another column   the closing scene in the famous farce, entitled "the contempt case." His Honor winds up his reversal of his judgment with the expressions of a hope that "in future neither the defend- ant, (Mr. Alderman Kerr) nor any other Editor of a newspaper will render it necessary for the Court to adopt similar proceedings." We cordially concur in the wish, though we cannot say we observed that his Honor was equally ready for action with " other Editors," the Herald " conductor " for instance. As, however, there is no telling what may happen ; seeing that even the terrors of a " contempt case," will not deter us from discharging what we consider to be our duty, we trust we may be permitted to ask of his Honor, when a...
