Domestic Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 10 April 1849

Domestic Intelligence. Robbing of the Portland Mail.— On Tuesday morning last a private in- vestigation took place at the Police-office, before Mr. Simpson, and Captains Mair and Dana, relative to the late robbery of the Portland Mail. Mr. D. C. C. Brodie had proceeded last week to the scene of the robbery, and, after great search, and using his accustomed activity in such matters, succeeded in arresting two men, and a woman (whose names under the present aspect of the case cannot be men- tioned), upon whose persons were found two cheques which had been stolen from the mail bags, and whom he conducted to town. The men admitted having had the cheques in their possession, but stated they got them fiom the female, wife of one of the male prisoners. The woman stated that on the day after the robbery of the mail, two men of respectable ap- pearance, natives of Ireland, rode up to her hut, and asked for a pot of tea; while drinking the tea they told her they had come from Ireland with a l...

The Argus. I am in the place where I am demanded of conscien[?]s to speak the truth, and therefore the truth I speak, impugn it whoso list." TUESDAY, APRIL 10, 1849. THE JUDGE AND THE PRESS. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 10 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 10, 1049. THE JUDGE AND THE PRESS. When a man gets " into trouble " (An-   glice—is in danger of being either " lag- ged "or "scragged,") his best policy is to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth to his Counsel, for all experience has shewn that a half- instructed advocate is infinitely more dangerous to his client, than the utmost possible amount of zeal on the part of the prosecution. This is a doctrine with which Mr. Justice a'Beckett, from the nature of his avocations, ought to be par- ticularly conversant, but it does not seem that, in his Honor's present crusade against the Press, he has practically pro- fitted by it, for if ever criminal was "sold" by the ignorance of his Counsel, Judge a'Beckett has, on this occasion, been regularly butchered by his ill-in- formed though ov...

Original Correspondence. To the Editor of the Argus.   "Bring forth the Press,"   When first that mighty shout was heard, Truth rose in radiant light enspher'd; The Nations to address. Then Tyrants trembled with dismay, Called forth their armies in array ; And priestcraft, bigot of the mind, In louder tones blasphem'd mankind. Sir.—The times are prophetic of great danger, such times should call forth the energies of every honest man, everv lover of, or well-wisher to his adopted land. The Superintendent's conduct called forth a meeting of the PEOPLE, in July t to petition his removal ; I, at that meeting, elsson as one cause of injury to the people, that he suffered a man to hold office under him, guilty of bribery and Corruption; he in part acknowledged that this had come to his ears, witness his famous off¡cial notice, addressed to whom ? To Nobody. What has occurred upon this? Why, the Go- vernment refused to enquire, at their own cost . f|l Charles Fitz...

Domestic Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 10 April 1849

Domestic Intelligence.   Responsible Government for the Co-     lonies.—Several of the leading English journals are strongly urging the Go- vernment to grant responsible Govern-   ment to the Colonies. Douglas Jerrold's   Weekly Newspaper warns the British public that " if the vexatious rule of   Downing-street be held over the colonies,   nobody will wonder to behold Australia measuring her strength, Yankee fashion, with her stern parent."       English Ignorance.—A London news-   paper quoting from a Port Phillip journal * some details of Pentonvillainy, winds up with the sage remark that " Pentonville   seems to be the St. Giles's of Mel-   bourne."

CHINESE IMMIGRATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 10 April 1849

CHINESE IMMIGRATION. Some months since, we gave some interesting particulars of a recent impor- tation of Chinese and Malay labourers, and we then expressed a hope that the experiment might have a fair trial, that the employers of labor in this district might learn, in any future dearth of labor, to look to some better source to supply their wants, than to British gaols. We have no hesitation in saying that it has not had the fair trial we hoped for. Wages are now much lower than the par- ties importing these immigrants could have expected, and many of their num- ber have shown neither the patience, the justice, or the sense of duty towards these poor creatures that they should have   done. The consequence is, that all that has gone wrong with any of the number, has been heaped up in odium upon the gentleman who undertook their importa- tion, and he has come in for much trouble, annoyance, and abuse which he never deserved, but which he, alas ! is not the only intending...

Select Poetry. A TRIFLE FROM BRIGHTON. (From Punch.) [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 10 April 1849

Select Poetry. A TRIFLE FROM BRIGHTON. (From Punch.) I took the train to Brighton—I walked beside the sea, And thirty thousand Londoners were there along with me. We crowded every lodging, and we lumbered each hotel, Sniff'd the briny for an appetite, and dined ex- tremely well. The cliff it shows like Regent-street come down for the sea air ; Not in Hyde-park's self do ladies more becoming bonnets wear ; In enchanted " upper circles" one seems to move about, When the sunshine brings the flies and private equipages out. To Brighton the Pavilion lends a lath-and-plaster grace— Fit shrine for fittest god of this pleasant watering place ; And against the show and shallowness, the vanity and glee, With his hollow, hushless murmur, comes up the solemn sea. I sat there in the Bedford, and in the Times I read Of the West-Riding canvass, and a thought came   in my head : How England's one Great Brighton—we all so rich and gay,   While at our feet and in our face a ...

SYDNEY. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 10 April 1849

SYDNEY. (from our own correspondent.) I refrained from writing by the Steamer, yesterday, because, in point of fact, I had scarcely anything to write about ; and I am sorry to say, that the state of the news market is very little better to-day. The excitement and difference of opinion, caused by the Cumberland elec- tion, are as rife as ever, and judging from present appearances, it will be a con- siderable time before these feelings will fade away. The strong denunciations of the S. M. Herald, by the several speakers, on the day of declaring the poll, have given rise to very many ru- mours of a rival journal being called   into existence, but I am not disposed to attach any great weight to these rumours. The fact is, that even if sufficient capital was subscribed for the purpose of starting a rival daily paper, upon as extensive a   scale as the Herald, the requisite ma-   chinery, animate as well as inanimate,   could scarcely be...

ENGLISH NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 13 April 1849

ENGLISH NEWS. The arrival of the Julindur had placed the Sydney people in possession of news to the 28th December, but there was little of importance to add to our late extracts. The English political news is unim- portant. There did not appear to be any prospect of a change of Ministry, before the meeting of Parliament, in February. Several elections had taken place. Mr. E. Stanley, eldest son of Lord Stanley,   was elected for Lynn, in place of the late Lord George Bentinck, without opposi- tion. For the West Riding of Yorkshire there has been a sharp contest, between Mr. B. Denison, a Conservative, and Sir C. E. Eardley, a Whig, when the former had a majority of 3000 votes. For the season there was a fair amount of business. Wools had evi- dently an upward tendency, and the sales are said to show an advance of a half-penny to a penny per lb. Tallow maintained its price, but the stocks on hand were large, and a slight decrease in price was expected. In France the elec...
