To the Editor of the Melbourne Argus. [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 12 June 1846
To the Editor of the Melbourne Argus. Sir,-Allow me through the medium of your widely circulated Journal, to give publicity to the following circumstance. Upon Tuesday last the SHAMROCK. steamer arrived and was duly entered, but upon my applying at the Customs for a permit to remove certain goods, I was told that my entry could not be received in consequence of the registry of the vessel not having &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; been produced. My property was unshipped, and lying &nbsp; on the Wharf exposed to the heavy rain during the night of Tuesday, and thereby sustaining considerable damage. On making enquiry of Captain Gilmore, he informed me that no demand had been made upon him for &nbsp; the registry when he reported the vessel-that it was not customary to produce it-and further, that during the time he had been trading to this port (with two ex- &nbsp; ceptions) the registry has never been produced; there- fore implying, I suppose Mr E...
To the Editor of the Melbourne Argus. [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 12 June 1846
To the Editor of the Melbourne Argus. Sir,-How is it that those gentlemen, Captains Gwatkin, Bell, and Clinch, have been so long running their vessels over the shoal, stretching four miles in a westerly direction from Point Nepean, which the newspapers tell us Mr. Sur- veyor Smyth has just discovered, and never gave the public this essential information? I question very much, also, whether the many fine harbours lying between Port Phillip Heads and the Otway will not be found like this new reef, to have no existence, but in the imagination of this exploring surveyor. I think the nautical gentlemen, named above, may hide their diminished heads when any thing but a nautical man can make these dis- coveries. But, Sir, you are sure to hear some- thing of the marvellous when these land surveyors get afloat-a reef extending four miles west of Point Nepean! Fudge! -it is the sea breaking &nbsp; &nbsp; from the great velocity of the tide passing through the Heads. AN OLD SAI...

To the Editor of the Melbourne Argus. Sin-The committee of -r.vingement of the Australia Felix lotal Abstinence Society have directed me, in the absence of their Secretary, to state thot the cause of the Rev. Mr. Sweetman's absence from the public meeting, held in the Mschanics' Hull, on 1 nday evening last, was, his having lost his way on his return from Wil- liam's Town, whither he had been in the discharge of his pastoral duties ; he had started thence with the full intention of being m Melbourne about half-past six o'clock that evening, instead of | which, losing the road, he did not reach home till after eight. No intelligence has yet been received from Captain Kerr, but the commiUc feel confident that he also must have been unavoidably absent. As both these gentlemen were advertised by placards, &c, to he present at the meeting íe ferred to, and neither of them made his appear- ance, the committee feel it to be due to them- selves, to the public, and more especially to...

SMALL TENEMENTS AND THE TENANTS THEREOF. To Edward Jones Brewster, Esq.,Barrister-at-law, and Member of the Legislative Council. [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 16 June 1846
SMALL TENEMENTS AND THE TENANTS THEREOF. To Edward Jones BiewUer, Esq.,Baiitstei-at-law, and Menibei of the Legislative Council. Sin-I beg to introduce to your notice the necessity which exists for altering the law as between landlord and tenant. As the law now stands, however humble the tenement may be, and however humble the occupier thereof, there are no means for the landlord obtaining the one or ejecting the other, than by the ordinary process of tedious and expen'ive litigation. The ex pences occasioned by that process are of so serious a character as to amount in many instances to more than the building sought to be recovered is worth. 'Ihtrefore, either these expenses must be submitted to, or else the owner must be de- prived of the benefit of his property. The present law is like a two edged sword. In England the seventy of that law was felt, and it was ameliorated by P-irhament, aud now in that country upon giving due notice to the tenant proceedings may be adopted before ...

Commercial Intelligence. STATE OF TRADE. (From the Manchester Advertiser, February 14.) [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 16 June 1846
Oommerctal Bttelltgnw. STATE OF TRADE. (Fiom the Manchester Advertise* February 14.) Manchester.-The condition of the market throughout the week has continued to exhibit evidences of depression, the transactions having been only on the most moderate scale, and prices in some few cases having slightly receded. The stringency of the discount market is severely felt here, and is proving a most serious impediment to trade, which, if much longer continued, must cause great embarrassment, even to the best es- tablished export houses who are to any extentde pendent on foreign remittances. Spinners and manufacturers are very cautious in making sales ; prices are, on the whole, without any change, and our quotations may be repeated. Purchases for prompt cash may in some coses be made at a slight shade under the currencies. We quote 26 in. 64 reed printers, at 4s. 4d. to 4s. 9d. ; 27 in. 66 reea ditto, at 4s.
