PRICES CURRENT OF COLONIAL WOOL. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 3 April 1849

PRICES CURRENT OF COLONIAL WOOL. Our fourth series of Public Sales, consisting of 7,833 Bags Australian, 5,649 " Port Phillip, 2,588 " Van Diemen's Land, 786 " South Australian, 41 " Swan River, ' 9 " New Zealand, 3,209 " Cape Good Hope, 899 " East India, 21,014 " Colonial, 279 " Odessa, 368 " Russian fleece, 303 " Egyptian, 441 " Buenos Ayres, V1 ,, Sundries, 22,476 Bags in all,   commenced on the 16th ultimo and terminated     this day. The general impression that prices had now reached their lowest point, and it being pretty correctly understood what quantity of the old   clip was still to arrive, induced perhaps the larges attendance of buyers ever known, while an improved feeling of confidence on their part manifested itself throughout the sales. The at- tendance of Belgian buyers was also more numerous and on this occasion they purchased more freely than since February last. The present Sales consisted of a fair assort- ment....

EMIGRATION OF THIEVES FROM LONDON. AN INTERESTING TOPIC. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 3 April 1849

EMIGRATION OF THIEVES FROM LONDON. AN INTERESTING TOPIC. It occurred to Mr. Jackson, the Thieves Missionary, upon the receipt of Lord Ashley's speech, spoken in the House of Commons, in June last, that some of his ' young friends' might desire to emigrate 'at the expense of Govern-   ment,' but not after the manner in which culprits usually leave the mother coun- try. He accordingly put the question to one of them, and the answer was, ' I should jump at it!' Thus encouraged he made further inquiry among his wicked associates, and shortly afterward, to use the words of the City Mission Magasine for this month— 'Mr. Jackson was sent for by a num-   ber of thieves lodging in a court adjacent to the district, called Blue Anchor Yard. He went, and they expressed themselves extremely desirous to know whether any hope could be held out of the obtaining an honest livelihood, however humble, in our colonies, instead of continuing to pursue their present criminal cou...

THE CATASTROPHE AT DERRY. (From the [London] Daily News, December 7.) [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 3 April 1849

THE CATASTROPHE AT DERRY.   (From the [London] Daily News, De-   cember 7.)     The accounts which reached Dublin on Thursday night, of the catastrophe on board the emigrant ship, and of which I sent you a transcript yesterday, further information leads me to believe were     exaggerated. It is difficult to extract the precise truth from the conflicting statements with which the local and Dublin papers teem. The facts, as given in this day's Pilot, are, in brief, that on Friday a steamer left Sligo for Liverpool, having on board 203 human beings, principally emigrants. She did not pass the bar until Saturday morning, when it came on to blow a severe gale. The captain ordered the hatches, companion, &c., to be closed and battened down, leaving unhappily inadequate means of ventilation. In this state the passen- gers continued all that day and night, and the consequence was, that want of air, and the...

Select Poetry. POETS. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 3 April 1849

Select Poetry POETS. Poets are a joyous race, O'er the laughing earth they go, Shedding charms o'er many a place Nature never favoured so. Still to each divinest spot, Led by some auspicious star, Scattering flowers where flowers are not, Making lovelier those that are. Poets are a gifted race ! If their gifts aright they knew ;   Fallen splendour, perished grace, Their enchantments can renew. They have power o'er day and night, Life, with all its joys and cares— Earth, with all its bloom and blight— Tears and transport—all are theirs ! Poets are a wayward race ! Loneliest still when least alone, They can find in every place Joys and sorrows of their own. Grieved or glad by fitful starts, Pangs they feel that no one shares, And a joy can fill their hearts That can fill no hearts but theirs ! Poets are a mighty race ! They can reach to times unborn, They can brand the vile and base   VVith undying hate and scorn ! They can ward Detraction's blow — They obliv...

Commercial Intelligence. SYDNEY MARKETS. March 30. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 6 April 1849

Commercial Intelligence. SYDNEY MARKETS. March 30. In the Wheat Market there has been a tendency downwards. Wheat at the early part of the week was at 4s 3d., but a large quantity having been brought in   during the last three or four days, it is now at but 3s to 4s for the best samples. Flour is remarkably firm at   £10 10s. £9 10s, and £8 10s for first, seconds and thirds. Bran is scarce at 1s wholesale. Hay is rising, £5 10s to £6 per ton. In Cattle, the Market is better supplied, both as to number and quality, than for the last three weeks; inferior to fair, average 21s to 40s. A small lot of the best were sold at 52s. Of Sheep there has been a large supply principally of fair quality, sales from 3s to 4s 6d.; a flock of superior     were sold at 5s 6d. Maize stands at 3s 10d.—Sydney Correspondent.

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, APRIL 6, 1849. THE JUDGE AND THE PRESS. Port Phillip is, we believe, the only corner of the wide-spread dominions of the Queen of Great Britain, in which the faithful chronicling of pub- lic events is held to be a crime deserving of punishment. So far from faithful reporting being considered a crime, in the Mother Country, it is actually con- sidered the brightest characteristic of the British Press ; and even where the pro- ceedings reported are, in themselves, illegal, the spirit of the present age spurns against the punishment of the Reporter, for the errors of others. Need we refer, for proof, to the recent events in Ireland, where the undisguised object of the speakers, at hundreds and thou- sands of fully reported public meetings, has been, judicially, found to be high treason. And yet who ever heard of any journal, English or Irish...
