INSOLVENT COURT. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 3 April 1849
INSOLVENT COURT. &nbsp; In re James Johnston, debts £681 10s 7d ; assets £13; balance deficiency £55 10s 7d. &nbsp; No creditors appearing, Insolvent was &nbsp; ordered to hand over his watch to the official assignee, Mr. Graham, and was allowed to retain his wearing apparel. The Commissioner expressed a hope, that Insolvent being a single man, and a carpenter, earning high wages, would endeavour to pay his creditors. The Insolvent expressed his readiness &nbsp; to do so, by instalments, but having been arrested and put in jail, he had no &nbsp; alternative but to declare himself insol- vent. The official assignee thought probably &nbsp; after these proceedings had appeared in print, the creditors would take some &nbsp; steps in the matter. &nbsp;
NEW POST OFFICES. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 3 April 1849
NEW POST OFFICES. &nbsp; HIS Honor the Superintendent having been pleased to approve of the esta- blishment of Post Offices on the North Adelaide Road, branching from the Grange;—the one, at the Store of Mr. Evans, on the banks of the " Upper Glenelg" River ;—the other, near " Lake Wallace," at Mr. Davidson's Inn, on the South Australian boundary line.

SALES EFFECTED THIS WEEK BY MESSRS. BEAR & SON. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 3 April 1849
SALES EFFECTED THIS WEEK BY &nbsp; MESSRS. BEAR & SON. Fat Cattle.—The demand this week has been more than equal to the supply—fat bullocks of fair quality sold at from 50s. to 63s. each, or about 8s. 6d. per 100lbs, and fat cows and heifers from 32s to 52s 6d each. Fat cattle of prime quality would sell at from 9s to 9s 6d per 100lbs. There is little or no demand for store cattle, and sales can only be effected at very low prices. Sheep—The supply of fat wethers in the market this week has been very small, and a lot of inferior quality sold readily at about 1¼d. per lb. Store wethers are worth about 4s. per head. Horse StocK—Owing to the races there have not been many sales effected this week, the market is very dull and purchasers scarce— superior first-rate hacks changed hands at £26 but very useful hacks sold at from 8 to 12 guineas. Working Bullocks are not much enquired for—good teams are worth from £1 to £8 per pair, bows, yokes, &c, given in. March 31...
The Argus. I am the place where I am demanded of conscience to speak the truth, and therefore the truth I speak, [?]mpugn it whose list." TUESDAY, APRIL 3, 1849. OURSELVES. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 3 April 1849
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, APRIL 3, 1849. OURSELVES. We feel that we are not justified in en- tering upon a fresh Quarter, without apologising to our readers, for not having, ere now, carried out the promise, some time since made, of making the Argus a daily journal. We had expected to have completed all the necessary arrangements before this, but several unavoidable de- &nbsp; lays have taken place, and we have been &nbsp; forced to delay the change. We beg, however, to assure our readers, that we fully intend carrying out our original determination, with as little loss of time as possible. It has been already proved that this District is sufficiently advanced to sup- port a daily journal, even where there existed no very strong claims to support ; and it were, therefore, affectation, to pretend that an honest, straightforward, and consistent cour...
MAURITIUS MARKETS. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 3 April 1849
MAURITIUS MARKETS. Animals.—Slaughter oxen are become scarce, the late low price of beef has increased the de- mand, and 35 oxen per Gwalior were sold on Monday at 55 drs. Beef has risen from 6d. to 10d. per lb. in the market. Salt Beef.—The market is quite bare of all descriptions ; the few casks of Indian per Non Pareil have been eagerly purchased at 18 drs. The contract with Government for 30,000 lbs. is accepted at 30s. 4d. per 100 lbs. Wheat and Flour.—Doodah wheat has de- &nbsp; clined a little owing to late importations coming into market ; a parcel has sold at 2.90. There is a good supply of Australian in store ; prices for this description have ruled at 3.10-3.20. Flour &nbsp; is not so abundant and sells for remunerating prices.

NO POLLUTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 3 April 1849
NO POLLUTION. Our readers will be gratified to learn that His Excellency the Governor has followed up his kind promise, to have all convicts, who may arrive in this port packed off to Sydney, forthwith, by an application to the Home Government, to stay all measures for sending out convicts, until in possession of the deliberate &nbsp; opinion of the Legislative Council, on the subject. This resolution is conveyed in the following Letter, which is published in the Sydney Morning Herald: &nbsp; Colonial Secretary's Office, Sydney, 26th March, 1849 &nbsp; Sir,—I have the honour to state, for the infor- mation of the gentlemen who took a part in the proceedings at the recent public meeting in Sydney, against the revival of transportation, and any other parties who have signed the petition on that occasion, that the Governor seeing the im- &nbsp; possibility of the copy of the resolutions intended to be presented to his Excellency being received &n...
COUNTRY NEWS. (FROM OUR WARRNAMBOOL CORRESPONDENT) [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 3 April 1849
COUNTRY NEWS. &nbsp; FROM OUR WARRNAMBOOL CORRESPONDENT ) The races commenced on Tuesday, 27th March. At the meeting held the previous evening to enter the horses, the only steward present, (J. Rutledge, Esq.) took the chair, and after receiving the entrances and subscriptions, withdrew with the judge and treasurer, to a private room to regulate the stakes, which know- ing what horses were entered he was enabled lo do to his liking ; knowing he had no horse to compete with, and he certainly appears to deserve credit for his stewardship, as out of £40, the whole amount of the stakes, he wins one race, and gets £15, riding his own horse. The people of VVarrnambool were wise in not publishing the amount of the stakes until after the horses were entered, or other- wise they would have had no visitors from Belfast. The greatest portion of the £40 was collected in our township and what looks rather singular in the &nbsp; meeting, the Town Plate £5, and the Maiden £15, a th...
SUPREME COURT. (Before His Honor the Resident Judge.) Saturday, March 31. INSOLVENCY JURISDICTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 3 April 1849
SUPREME COURT. &nbsp; (Before His Honor the Resident Judge) &nbsp; Saturday, March 31. &nbsp; INSOLVENCY JURISDICTION. &nbsp; In re H. W. Mason—Mr. Barry moved that the order to allow Mr. Were to prove on the estate be made absolute. Mr. Stawell appeared on the other side, and the argument was deferred until Saturday. In re Philip Phillips—His Honor said he would deliver judgment in this case on Saturday. Monday, April 1. Hawe v. Sawyer—Mr. Stawell argued in sup- port of the demurrer to the replication of plaiDtl in this case. He contended that the replication was an insufficient answer to the pleas. Mr. Sidney Stephen appeared for plaintiff, in support of the replication. Mr. Stawell replied, and His Honor reserved judgment. Sayce v. Strong.—Foreign attachment.—Mr. Stawell examined witnesses in this case. Charles Butler, master of the schooner Emer- gency, proved the handwriting of defendant in a letter to plaintiff, ordering certain goods on ac- cou...
Domestic Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 3 April 1849
Domestic Intelligence. &nbsp; Police Office.—Yesterday morn- &nbsp; ing a young woman named Jane M'Clelland, was charged with stealing £50 in gold and Bank notes from Mr. Fogarty, baker, of Collins-street, &nbsp; about two months back. From the evidence ol the Detectives and Mr. Fogarty, coupled with the prisoner's confession, there was no doubt of her guilt, and she was fully committed for trial at the ensuing Criminal Sessions.—A mechanic, named William Cathcart, residing in a lane off Queen-street, was charged with obstructing the Detectives in the execution of their duty, when searching his house for some of the money stolen from Mr. Fogarty by the prisoner Jane M'Clel- land, who had her boxes ianCathcart's premises. &nbsp; It appears that during the search Cathcart being irritated at what he considered an over officious- ness on the part of the constables, and an insinua- tion on their part that he was not acting honestly in the matter, he took u...
ENGLISH NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 3 April 1849
ENGLISH NEWS. We resume our summary of late En- glish intelligence :— Parliament was to meet for the de- spatch of business, on the 1st February, we may therefore expect intelligence of the initiation of the Bill for the Sepa- ration of this Province, from New South Wales, in the course of a couple of months. The Right Hon. Charles Buller, M.P. for Liskeard—the Chief Poor Law Com- missioner, and for some years Parlia- mentary agent for the Patriotic Associa- tion of New South Wales, is dead. Mr. Buller was to be succeeded in the Poor Law Commission, by Lord Seymour. The new Emperor of Austria is the nephew of the Emperor, not the son, as stated in our Extraordinary, of yester- &nbsp; day. The King of Prussia, on the 5th Dec. issued a decree dissolving the Assembly, and by another decree pro- claimed the new Constitution, which consists of 112 articles, and guarantees freedom of the press, subject to prosecu- tion for offences according to existing laws ; freedom of meeting i...
THE BUILDING SOCIETIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 3 April 1849
THE BUILDING SOCIETIES. We now proceed towards the completion of our remarks upon this subject, by presenting our readers with a table &nbsp; shewing the compound interest which a shareholder in one of the societies will receive, if he retain his position as a depositor to the termination of the society. The rate of compound interest is of course a more accurate mode of stating the pro- fits of the society, than that of simpe interest, and in this, as in some former calculations, the compound interest, is calculated for the first year upon the payments made month by month ; and one £30 in each year is treated in the same manner. Interest is of course only charged upon interest at the end of the year, as calculations of compound interest for any shorter period would he refining unnecessarily, and lead us into useless minutiæ. In the annexed table we have devoted a column to simple interest, by way of a proof of the correctness of our compound calculations. There is a trifling...

SYDNEY MARKETS. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 3 April 1849
SYDNEY MARKETS. A fair amount of business has been done this week, principally in the execution of orders for Auckland and other out-ports. San Francisco has also taken off a large quantity of goods of a very varied description ; but for the very exten- sive shipments made to the latter port during the past summer, our market would at the present &nbsp; moment be overstocked and in a most depressed state for many British and other goods. Wheat.—The supply has continued to be a large one, and a ready sale has been met with. The prices have been throughout the week very steady, at from 3s 6d to 4s 4d per bushel, accord- ing to quality, but at least nine tenths of that brought to market has been of the best descrip- tion. Flour continues at previous rates. Fine, per 2000 lbs., £10 10d; seconds, per ditto, £9 10s; and ration per ditto, £8 10s. Tbe firmness noticed in our last report still prevails.—Sydney Morning Herald, March 24.

Domestic Intelligence. &nbsp; Notice to Publicans.—This day will be the last day for filing applications to be heard by the licensing magistrates on the ensuing General Licensing Day. There are already a goodly number of applications for general licenses for houses in course of erection, and three cases of transfer. St. James' Visiting Society.—In a case tried last week at the Police Office, wherein Captain Howey prosecuted a servant for abscondineg the Bench di- rected £2 5s. to be deducted from the wages due as a punishment to the de- fendant, which the complainant handed over to the Treasurer of the St. James' Visiting Society. This is an example worthy of imitation, and a course which if followed up will soon replenish the coffers of the above excellent institution. Councillor Nicholson and a few other persons gave a donation of £1 each last week to enable the Society to carry out its benevolent intentions. There are many claims at this time upon the funds, and the contr...
