The North Australian. TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 23, 1864. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian — 23 February 1864
Q%e cfoif giistraliiw. TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 23, IS6*. As was to be expected the memorial addressed to the Duke of Newcastle met vith the most vehement vitupera tion at the hands of the Guardian. Were it not that the article displays at every point that systematic misstate ment and insolent abuse founded upon it — unhappily characteristic of oar con temporary — it would not be worth noticing. Argument it has none, and we care little for the dogmatic assump tion which takes its place, bat it is necessary to correct Borne of the most prominent falsehoods in which that article abounds. In the first place we are told that in asmuch as it was not a ' petition'' pre sented to the Governor in the first instance, but a set of ' resolutions' — the Throne is beside the question. Now his Excellency the Governor and Mr. P»«».-i -jo i in in lies ? I 'Vf -———i— sFon complained 6f,ifitexist at all.

Tbe following letter appeared in the Mel bourne Argtu of the I2th instant: — Sir, — in an article copied from tbe Tea man of the 9th instant into the Argta of the ICtli. on the relative merits of tramways and railways, the following paragraph oc curs: — 'A railway worked by locomotives is said by its engineer.
