Domestic Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 17 April 1849

Deomestic Intelligence. Van Diemen's Land.—The arrival of his Excellency Sir Charles A. Fitz Roy in Von Diemen's Land is chronicled in the Hobart Town newspapers. and numerous conjectures are afloat   as to the cause of his Excellency's visit. Sjr Charles had left Hobart Town for Launceston,   where he intends staying during the races. Town Council.—The question of the fine to be imposed upon Mr. Thomas Kissock, for refusing to act as an assessor, is to come before the Council at its meeting to-morrow, together with the fines incurred by several of the Coun- cillors in failing to attend meetings at which a call of the Council has been made. As there has never been any very considerable lenity shown towards the public in raising funds, for the purposes of the Corporation, we trust that we shall not have to comment upon any disposition to shirk the share of public contributions, which in this instance falls upon their own peculiar pockets. The Colonial Surgeo...

Select Poetry. APRIL FOOLS. FROM DOUGLAS JERROLD'S SHILLING MAGAZINE. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 17 April 1849

Select Poetry. APRIL FOOLS. FROM DOUGLAS JERROLD'S SHILLING MAGAZINE. He who mourneth day by day That his youth doth pass away Like the blossoms on the tree, Sure a April fool must be : For the blossoms fade and die   That the tree may fruit supply;     So, youth fled, we e'er should find Fruitful wisdom left behind. He who lives to garner gold, Selling what should ne'er be sold, Bartering peace for dross, why he Sure an April-fool must be ! Many who have mourned his end Will rejoice that they may spend, For the ingots he may save   None will bury in his grave. He who spurns the horny hand, Throwing loom or tilling land, Treating labour scornfully, Sure an April-fool is he ! Were the loom of tfc bereft Spaws would weuve warp and weft ; Earth and labour are allied— Thriftless groom makes thriftless bride. He who tthinks that Time has done All for which Time was begun, Nor its onward course doth see, Sure an April-fool must be ! Nigh...

" Who is the owner of this pretty thing?" is a query which ushers in a cheerful game amongst the children, and "who is the owner of this pretty thing?" is now generally enquired amongst parties interested in the extraordinary persecution of this journal. Here is a fine thriving bantling tumbled into the world, and no father is to be found ! It is an ugly little rascal, sure enough, and   has not the appearance of being very well adapted for existence in the middle of the nineteenth ceutury, but it is too bad to desert it altogether. It has tot- tered from Court to Court, from the Police Office to the Criminal Sessions,   from the Criminal to the Quarter Ses- sions, but it finds no resti...

MISCELLANEOUS. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 17 April 1849

Miscellaneous. The Spirited Shoemaker.—The fol- lowing pleasant anecdote used to be told by the eccentric Doctor Monsey:—The   Duke of Leeds, the Doctor, and his Grace's Chaplain, being, one morning, soon after breakfast, in his library, Mr. Walkden, of Pall Mall, his Grace's shoe - maker, was shown in, with a pair of new shoes for the Duke. The latter was r- markably fond of him, as he was, at the same time, clerk of St. James's Church, where the Duke was a constant attend- ant. What haye you there, Walkden ?   said the Duke. A pair of shoes for your Grace, he replied. Let me see them. They were handed to him accordingly. The chaplain taking up one of them, examined it with great attention. What is the price ? asked the Chaplain. Half a guinea, sir, said the shoemaker. Half a guinea! what! for a pair of shoes? Why, I could go to Cranbourne Alley, and buy a better pair of shoes than ever they were, or ever will be, for five and six-pence. He then threw the ...

MELBOURNE MARKETS. April 16, 1849. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 17 April 1849

MELBOURNE MARKETS.   April 16, 1849. GRAIN.—Notwithstanding the recent decline of prices in the Sydney wheat market, an advance of 3d per bushel has occurred here, and it is anti- cipated that a further rise will take place, on account of the farmers being likely to be engaged at present too much with ploughing to be able to forward to market any but a trifling supply. Oats are selling at 2s 3d, and English barley at 2s 3d to 2s 6d per bushel.. Flour.—There has been no alteration in the market during last week. First quality is selling at £10, and seconds at £9, per 2,000 lbs.   Hay has lately been on the rise, at present it is selling at from £2 10s to £2 15s. per ton. Potatoes are still scarce and dear, there being none above £6 per ton. STOCK MARKET.   SALES EFFECTED DURING THE WEEK BY MESSRS. BEAR AND SON.   Fat Cattle of good quality have sold this week   at from 7s 6d to 9s per 100lbs. The supply was &nbs...

SYDNEY. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 17 April 1849

SYDNEY. FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT. A good deal of excitement has been cre- ated, by the pledge which Sir Charles Fitz Roy is reported to have given, at Melbourne, of forwarding to Sydney any prisoners of the Crown who might arrive at the former post. However strong may be the feeling against convict labour, in Melbourne, it is certainly equalled, if not surpassed, by the anti-transportation feeling which exists here. The operative classes, in particular, are beginning even to look on with dismay, at the extensive introduction of free labour, which has taken place within the last week or two, and I am convinced that any attempt to land a batch of convicts, would be at- tended with a serious disturbance. It is, probably, the intention of Sir Charles, to send the convicts, if any arrive, to Cock- atoo Island, or some other of the ordinary receptacles of penal labour. As the time for opening the Legislative Council approaches more closely, there is a great deal of speculation as to the...
