THE RACES. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 27 March 1849
THE RACES. A large number of the sporting com- munity assembled at the Royal Hotel on Saturday evening, to hear the result of the entrances for the various races commencing this morning Soon after nine an adjournment to the ball room took place, and Mr. Chitty announced the following entries, which promise much better sport than we had any rea- son to anticipate. The surprising sea- son that we have had, has at all events, put the course in better order than we ever yet saw it, and considering the pretty full list, we venture to predict a good week's sport By way of afford- ing to all parties on the course, their full share of enjoyment, we would impress upon the stewards the propriety of allowing the horses to be a little more paraded than heretofore , such parties as remain either upon foot, or in their carriages, near the winning post, can form but a vague &nbsp; opinion of the competitors for the prizes, by seeing them whisk past once or twice, at railroad speed, and the...

REGISTER! REGISTER! REGISTER! [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 27 March 1849
REGISTER ! REGISTER ! REGISTER ! The collectors of the lists of voters in the election of members of the Legisla- tive Council, both in the city and district, are now engaged in registering the names of voters, and by the tenth proximo they are required to hand in their returns. In the city this duty is performed by collectors appointed by the Mayor, of whose appointment due notice has been given ; in the district the duty devolves upon the chief constables of the different police districts. The electoral roll now in course of for- mation is unquestionably the most impor- tant ever framed in this province, for from the fact of its continuing in force from 1st June, proximo, to 1st June, 1850, there is every probability that on the electors now returned, will devolve the choice of the first Legislative Coun- cil of the royal province of Victoria. We call upon all those who are entitled to the possession of the elective franchise, to see that their names are duly regis- tered, and the...

MR. JUSTICE A'BECKETT AND THE PRESS. Quos Deus vult perdere, prius dementat. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 2 April 1849
MR. JUSTICE A'BECKETT AND &nbsp; THE PRESS. &nbsp; Quos Deus vult perdere, prius dementat. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; THERE is an apparent fatality in the pro- ceedings of Mr. Justice a'Beckett—a perfect feyness (as it is expressively termed by the Scotch) which seems likely rapidly to drive him to his downfall. Scarcely has His Honor got rid of one encounter with the Press of the province, which left him in a most humiliating position before the whole community, ere he is again, and most ungraciously involved in a similar mess. Before, it was the freedom of discussion His Honor tried to check ; now it is the faithful reporting of the public proceedings of a legally constituted public body, that is sought to be suppressed. On Saturday, the proprietor of this journal was served with a summons re- quiring his attendance at the Police Office, to-morrow, to answer a charge preferred by the Crown Solicitor, for the publication in this journal on the 1st ...

The Argus EXTRAORDINARY &nbsp; I am in the place where I am demanded of conscience to speak the truth, and therefore tbe truth I &nbsp; speak, impugn it whoso list." MONDAY, APRIL 2, 1849. ENGLISH NEWS. THE Lord George Bentinck, with immi- &nbsp; grants, arrived yesterday, bringing news to the 18th December. We hasten to furnish our readers with the principal intelligence which has attracted our ob- servation, but as we are deficient of some of the intermediate dates, since our last publication, we shall most probably have to continue our summary in to- morrow's issue. Prince Louis Napoleon Bonaparte has been elected President of France, by an overwhelming majority of about seven votes to one over General Ca- vaignac We are not in possession of the final result of the poll, but on the 15th December, although the votes of little more than one half of France were known, he had the absolute ma- jority of the entire number of votes, and nearly a million beyond th...
ENGLISH EXTRACTS. ELECTION OF THE PRESIDENT OF FRANCE. (From the Times, 14th December, 1848.) [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 2 April 1849
ENGLISH EXTRACTS. ELECTION OF THE PRESIDENT OF FRANCE. (From the Times, 14th December, 1848.) To all appearance the time has arrived when it becomes necessary to pay our homage to Louis Napoleon, the first President of the new French Republic. But how to discharge that duty is the question. Were we ever so desirous to worship the rising sun of France, we should still find it a matter of difficulty. Under what name and quality are we to address him ? For what auspices is he to be congratulated ? What wishes are we to express ? Are we to ask Heaven for a successful presidency or for a length- ened reign ? Is it the maintenance of a policy or the inauguration of an empire which the omens portend? Such ques- tions crowd upon us the moment we turn to the new object of our political regards. The traveller in an unknown region is suddenly ¡ntroduced to a personage who evidently embodies the genius and reli- gion of the place, but whose rank, posi- tion, and attributes are as yet a mystery....

Domestic Intelligence. &nbsp; SUPPOSED SUICIDE.—One of the Dis- trict Constables, while walking along the north bank of the Yarra on Saturday morning, found several articles of female attire a little below the Melting Estab- lishments.

We have not yet heard what increase of salary is to be considered an equivalent for this super- human exertion ; nor how far the in- terest upon deposits is to be diminished, to provide for the increase of the said salary. &nbsp; &nbsp;
