SYDNEY MARKETS. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 13 April 1849

SYDNEY MARKETS. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT) Sydney, 6th April.—In the markets there are no changes of moment. Considerable supplies of Wheat have been received coastwise during the week, and, any difference in the relative propor- tions of the supply and the demand having thus been prevented, the prices have remained even at 3s 9d to 4s. Oats have ranged from 2s 6d to 3s 6d. Flour has had a tendency downward, and may be now quoted at £10 10s for first quality, and £9 for seconds. The Cattle brought in have been in better condition than before, and have ranged from £2 10s to £4; Milch Cows are from £2 10s to £3. Sheep 4s 6d to 6s; a few lambs   have been brought in and sold readily at 6s. There has been a good supply of Hay, chiefly   oaten, at from £5 9s to £6; of meadow hay there were but a few loads, which were eagerly bought up at ordinary prices.

Original Correspondence. To the Editor of the Argus. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 13 April 1849

Original Correspondence. To the Editor of the Argus. Sir,—Upon the publication of the Government Notice of the 21st Novem- ber last, respecting the occupation of Crown lands within the settled districts, you bestowed more pains than any of your contemporaries in explaining to your readers the true meaning and intent of the said notice; at that time you were of opinion that it conferred the right to cultivate upon the squatter, in so far at least, as any licensed occupant who should apply for thirty acres of any   section of his run to be put up to sale, might cultivate the whole or any part of it, until the thirty acres applied for were offered for sale. You would confer no slight obligation upon myself, as well as upon several others, were you in one of your earliest numbers to inform your readers, whether you are still clearly of the same opinion, and by that opinion I shall be guided, as more than one govern- ment functionary, who have been applied to for information...

MISCELLANEOUS. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 13 April 1849

MISCELLANEOUS. Censure.—Censure is the tax a man payeth to the public for being eminent. —Swift. Rather Personal.—" I see villain in your face," said a western judge to an Irish prisoner. "May't please your worship," replied Pat, " that must be a personal reflection, sure." Look to Spain, Greece, Pennsylvania, &c.—-We are always boasting that "Eng- land stands alone in the world." We   really think that England is the only country in the world that does stand   a loan—and never gets paid for it.—Punch. Fable.—The Sword and Pen.—The Sword of the warrior was taken down to brighten ! it had been long out of use. The rust was soon rubbed off; but there were spots that would not go—they were of blood. It was on the table near the Pen of his secretary. The Pen took advantage of the first breath of air to move a little further off. " Thou art right (said the Sword); I am a bad neighbour." " I fear thee not (replied the Pen): I am more powerful than thou ar...

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

ENGLISH. The inquiry into the expenditure of the Treasury, the Home, Foreign, and Colonial Offices, will be conducted by Sir Charles Trevelyan, Mr. Gibson Craig, and Mr. Herman Merivale. William Frederick Desharres, Esq., is appointed Puisne Judge for the province of Nova Scotia, and Alexander M'Dou- gall, Esq., is to succeed Mr. Desharres as Solicitor-General of the colony. It may probably be interesting to our readers to know that Smith O'Brien has a son in the college for the deaf and dumb at Rugby. Master O'Brien is be- tween nine and ten years of age, very intelligent looking, and remarkably quick at comprehending anything com- municated to him by the usual signs. During the whole of the proceedings attending the trials of the Irish agitators,   Master O'Brien has kept up a continued intercourse with Mr. Bingham, the ta- lented master of the college, sometimes expressing considerable anxiety as to the result. But, upon the writ of error being argued, he became more...

GOOD FRIDAY. To the Editor of the Argus. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 13 April 1849

GOOD FRIDAY. To the Editor of the Argus. Sir,—Being somewhat ignorant as re- gards the law of religious toleration, or perhaps I should say, " the law of con- formity," in this part of the British do- minions, to the holy days in the calendar of the Established Church ; I have taken the liberty of requesting an explanation thereof from you, or any episcopal reader who may condescend to enlighten me. I have been told by more than one individual, that it is compulsory on all persons in business, no matter of what persuasion, to shut their shops, &c., on Good Friday ; at all events during the hours of Divine service. Now if such be true (which I can hardly credit) from whence proceeds this despotic mandate? Not I should think from the Imperial Parliament. I cannot say from personal observa- tion, whether Dissenters in England are compelled to do so ; but this much I can say, that such a thing has never been at- tempted for many years in that part of the sister kingdom in which ...

SUPREME COURT.       Wednesday, April 11, 1849. Before His Honor the Resident Judge, IN BANCO. JUDGMENT. Exparte Ann Mary Sutton and Richard Wathn Sutton v. F. E. Paynter.—His Honor deferred judgment:—   In this case a Rule was granted calling on Paynter, one of the attornies of this Court to show cause why he should not answer the mat'un of certain affidavits, or be struck off the Rolls. The rule nisi was granted on the affidavits o't Mr. and Mrs. Sutton, in reply to which, on shewing cause, Mr. Paynter and four other depo- nents' affidavits were read. His Honor said the ground upon which he granted the rule, ni simply this: that Mr. Paynter being a traeke for Mrs. Sutton of certain property, and at the same time attorney for Mr. Sutton, had, in pur- suance of a power in the settlement under which the property was vested, sold part of it for the purpose of purchasing other property in lieu, but instead of appropriating it to that ...

Domestic Intelligence. The Theatre.—We perceive that the   fine old English Comedy of John Bull, is to be produced this evening, by particular desire. This   is the first of a series, which are to be performed in rotation, and we understand that it is Mr. King's intention to make the Friday's evening of each week a sort of court night, devoting it to a better class of performance, and aiming at a more aristocratic audience. We wish him every suc- cess, as we have always held that an attempt to cultivate and improve theatrical taste in Melbourne, was likely to prove the most profitable, as well as the most agreeable course, The Music Class.—After beginning   to wonder when we were to be favoured with another of the a admirable concerts with which the Melbourne public have lately been presented, by the members of the Music Class of the Mechanics' Institution, we are pleased to find a very tempting programme arranged for next Tuesday evening.

His Honor: we have read them. Mr. Croke then directed attention to a clause in the St. Kilda (unallowed) Act, which was also handed to tbe Bench.   His Honor: well, we have read that too. Mr. Croke: the object of this application is lest a question should be raised as to the mixed con- stitution of the Court. His Honor: well, what then? Mr. Croke : I apprehend that these clauses give the City Magistrates exclustve jurisdiction, and the country magistrates have no standing in the Court. His Honor read a portion of the 5t...

SYDNEY. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 13 April 1849

SYDNEY. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) This being Good Friday, there is even less news current than there has been for some time past, so far as local matters are concerned ; but the thrilling interest of the intelligence from Europe, received on Wednesday last, has naturally ren- dered it the subject of conversation, in all quarters ; and much speculation is abroad, as to what will be the result. There has not, as yet, been any allusion made by the Roman Catholic Archbishop,     or any of his clergy, to the intelligence of the Pope's flight, or to the extent of its influence on the interests of their Church, and the ceremonies of the Holy Week have been proceeded with as usual. There was a rumour afloat, in Eng- land, when the Julindur left, that our anticipations of a speedy commencement of steam navigation, between England and this Colony, are likely to prove er- roneous. It is said that, at the time the arrangements were about to be com- pleted, the nego...

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 13, 1849. THE JUDGE AND THE PRESS. We have had another turn on Bug- gins's " grind-stone," and have been wonderfully sharpened by the process. We are not yet keen enough though, to be able to discern any deception in Alderman Johnston's declaration that the version of his speech which appeared in our columns is " a fair report" of what he said. Joking apart, it is perfectly contempti- ble in the Herald to ring the changes in the manner he does upon the Alderman's acknowledgment of the accuracy of the report. The art of reporting, though it has attained to great perfection, has not reached the length of following a speaker verbatim, and we suspect we shall have to wait a long time in the colonies, before we arrive at greater perfection than to entitle ourselves to the acknowledgment of fairly reporting the proceedings of public bodies...

THE ABDICATION OF THE POPE. (From the Times, 4th Dec.) [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 13 April 1849

THE ABDICATION OF THE POPE.     (From the Times, 4 th Dec.) On the 24th November the Roman Pontiff privately left the city of Rome and repaired to Gaeta, where it was ex- pected that he would embark for France   in n vessel of war belonging to the French Republic. Whether it be to those who watch the progress of contemporary occurrences by the fitful and mysterious light of prophecy, or to the larger class of those whose political speculations bear a more exclusive reference to the mun- dane causes of human affairs, the cessa- tion of the temporal power of the Pope is an event of extreme interest and im- portance. It is not the mere abdication or deposition of a temporal Prince, who sinks into the monastery of St. Just or the privacy of Claremont ; it is not even to be compared to those periods of cap- tivity or oppression in which the entire Papal authority was interrupted by exile or duresse. Pius IX. has been deprived of what was only the ou...

Select Poetry. THE PEOPLE-TIME. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 13 April 1849

Select Poetry. THE PEOPLE-TIME.   BY GEORGE FLETCHER. The People-Time is drawing now ; Oh, wake a lofty advent strain ! World struggler, clear thy thoughtful brow ; Redemption calls ; and not in vain. History displays a gloomy scroll ; First kingly strength, then lordly crime. King, thou'rt discrowned ; thou'rt pow'rless, lord ; Ye shrink before the People-Time. The faith that gave its slaves of old— The battle hosts, the vassal train— Has fail'd at last; men higher hold Their lives, and shun war's fiery plain. The pomp still ling'ring round the throne— By flatt'rers sung, in courtly rhyme— Is senseless now : the only king Is MIND, in this, the People-Time. In lofty halls the noble dwells ; His wealth, his pride—ancestral fame— Heraldic honours, knighthood tells His house chief won, and left—a name. Let him keep pure the rank he bears, Unsullied through all age and clime ; Good DEEDS must grace each living lord ; They'll fade else in the People-Time. The only peers that...
