SYDNEY. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 20 April 1849

SYDNEY. [From our own correspondent.]   A case of some importance was dis-   cussed before the Police Bench yesterday, which you will see reported with accuracy   in to-day's Herald. This was an in-   formation against Mr. Stirling, a grocer   of Lower George Street, for polling at   the late Cumberland election in the name of Mr. Stirling, the Chief Inspector   of Distilleries. The case was dismissed in consequence of the magistrates not   agreeing to a decision, and some further proceedings may probably, under these circumstances, be taken. I am of opinion, however, that the defence which was set up was an honest one, namely, that he having property which qualified him to vote, believed that his name was on the list, and that he was voting for himself. This case, however, shews pretty clearly the extreme carelessness with which elections are conducted by the agents of the candid...

THE BEAR AND THE BEE-HIVE. A TRUE FABLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 20 April 1849

THE BEAR AND THE BEE-HIVE. A TRUE FABLE. There was a certain Bear, remarkable for the irritability of his temper no less than for the sensitiveness of his skin. Bruin, or Brougham, or — as he was more commonly called, was often tor- mented by the attacks of certain Bees, which he provoked by his antics in the flowery paths of literature, wherein he was accustomed to run riot, licking everything and everybody with the rough side of his tongue. Although they could not pierce his hide, so as to penetrate his sense of shame, yet with their little but sharp stings did they grievously wound his vanity. At last, unable to endure the smart, he made one desperate rush at their hive, and thus upset their whole swarm, and, of course, brought it down about his ears. The exasperated Bees, flying upon the in- vader, soon stung him into downright frenzy ; and it is said that the unhappy Bear, in his rage and impatience, tore the skin over his ears with his own claws,   and scratched h...

To the Editor of the Argus. ODD FELLOWSHIP AND ROMISH CHRISTIANITY. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 20 April 1849

To the Editor of the Argus. Odd Fellowship and Romish Christianity.   Sir,—Much has been said and much has been preached from the pulpit in Lonsdale-street and elsewhere, in by- gone times, in order to prove the unchris- tian character of Odd Fellowship, and I regret to add that the same system is carried on to the present day, as my for- mer communication will clearly show to every unbiassed mind ; but notwithstand- ing all this opposition, the Manchester Unity of 0. F., like every other system of truth, the more it has been investigated, the more clearly have its beauties been developed, and the strength and perma- nency of its basis demonstrated, not only in Port Phillip, but throughout the Uni- verse at large. Odd Fellowship unchris- tian ! Wherein ! I have examined its laws—the laws by which the Unity is governed, and which form the most graphic delineations of the Constitution— and I find nothing there but what the most exemplary christian may subscribe &n...

TOWN COUNCIL.   Wednesday, April 18. Present—His Worship the Mayor; Aldermen Johnston and Kerr ; Councillors Annand, Ar- mitstead, Clarke, Macnamara, Murray, and Nicholson. MINUTES. The Minutes of last meeting having been read   Alderman Kerr rose to object to their confirm- ation. It appeared that the Town Clerk had in accordance with the call of Alderman Greevis, minuted certain expressions used by His Worship the Mayor, in reference to his ruling on the question of making a call of the whole Council for the reconsideration of the site for slaughter     houses. Alderman Kerr presumed that the entry had been made under the standing order No. 27, which empowers any member to require the words used by a speaker to be taken down, but it never was contemplated that the words so taken donw should form part of the Council Minutes to be kept on record : according to such a construction   of the order, any member by getting a...

Domestic Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 20 April 1849

Domestic Intelligence. The Supplement.—The increased   and fast increasing support which is being ac- corded to this journal, combined with an impression that we have occasionally treated our readers somewhat shabbily in the articles of domestic intelligence, and extracted matter, has induced us to arrange for the publi- cation of a supplement, with almost every issue of   the Argus, during the short time which will in- tervene before we commence a daily publication. We trust that our readers will look upon it, as another earnest upon our part of a determination to deserve their patronage, at whatever labour or expense. The Robbery of the Portland Maii.— We lately commented upon the ridiculous discrepancy between the offer of fifty pounds reward, by the Sydney government, for the dis- covery of the parties stealing a horse or two from a government surveyor; and thirty pounds re- ward for the detection of the perpetrators of one of the most daring and impude...

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 20, 1849. THE INCORPORATION OF GEE- LONG. Our Geelong neighbours are experi-   encing the truth of a trite old adage,   which declares that when a certain de-   scription of persons fall out, honest men   get their own. A split has taken place between two of the members of the se-   cret conclave lately detected in " settling the constitution," viz., Dr. Dickson,   M.C., and the arch-conspirator, the Editor of the Advertiser, and the con- sequence is, a complete unveiling of the whole scheme, and an appeal to a pub-   lic meeting of the inhabitants to be held   on Monday next.   We gather from the reluctant confes-     sion of the Geelong Advertiser, that the   almost unanimous o...

Commercial Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 20 April 1849

Commercial Intelligence.   On Wednesday last, Mr. Easey disposed of by public auction, the beautiful villa residence on the South of the Yarra, known as " Little Rock-   ley," late the property of Major St. John.   Owing to the desire to become possessed of Little Rockley, there was a numerous attendance of gentlemen, among whom a spirited competition took place, the result of which was, that the pro- perty realised £500, subjeit to a mortgage of £500. Mr. James Moore (of the late firm of Moore and Griffiths) was the fortunate purchaser.         The property consists of a spacious dwelling   house, with all necessary out-houses, and 23 acres of land tastefully laid out, having a front- age to the Yarra, two miles from Melbourne. Mr. Easey also disposed of several building sites on the Eastern Hill, having frontages to   Stephen-street and Flinder-streets, at from £1 &...

CITY COURT. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 20 April 1849

CITY COURT. Before his Worship the Mayor, Capt. Hutton, Dr. Wilmot, and Henry Moor, Esq. The list of applications was read through, previous to their Worships re tiring to consider them. Chief Constable Bloomfield represented to the bench that Mr. M'Cormack, of the Golden Fleece, and Mr. Patrick Sheedy, of the Black Horse, had both attempted to bribe him, the former by tendering a £5 note, and the latter by offering £2 to one of his children. He took that opportunity of informing the licensed victuallers there assembled that no sum, however large, would ever entice him from faithfully discharging the duties of his office. Mr. Bloomfield also com- plained that Mr. Blannin's house, the Edinburgh Castle, had lately sheltered a highway robber who ran into it after knocking down and robbing a man near the door. He had no proof, however, that Mr. Blannin was privy to the matter. Several of the licensed victuallers received a lecture from his Worship the Mayor about the filthy state of the...

ABDICATION OF THE POPE. (From the Times.) Naples, Dec. 4. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 20 April 1849

ABDICATION OF THE POPE. (From the Times.)       Naples, Dec. 4.               In my despatch of the 2nd inst. I acquainted you that the Pope had issued a manifesto from Gaeta, renewing solemnly the protest he had made ver- bally, to the foreign diplomacy in the Quirinal, against all acts emanating from the present Provisional Govern- ment, and nominating a Governing Council, or Ministry, to represent him at Rome. I now transmit you a trans- lation of the document, premising that it has been made from a copy hastily taken, as, from reasons I am not ac- quainted with, the manifesto is kept secret here:—   " Pius IX to the Roman People. " The outrage in latter days com- mitted against our person, and the in- tention openly manifested to continue these acts of violence, (which the Almighty, inspiring men's minds with sentiments of union and moder...

MISCELLANEOUS. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 20 April 1849

MISCELLANEOUS. Training College for Schoolmas- ters.—Mr. Adderley, M.P., has given land and a donation for the erection of a training college for schoolmasters, at Salsley, near Birmingham, in connexion with the Diocesan Board of Education. It is to be commenced immediately, within a short distance of the church about to be erected at the same place, mainly at the cost of, and endowed by Mr. Adderley. The funds necessary for the building are nearly provided, and the college is to receive a royal charter. The buildings of the new colleges in Cork, Belfast, and Galway, are proceed- ing, and there will not be the slightest interruption in the arrangements, not- withstanding the recent rescript from Rome. The presidents and vice-presi- dents have been appointed for a consider- able time past, but none of the professors or other officers have yet been chosen. Curious Fact.—At a dinner recently given to Mr. Armitage, Mayor of Manchester, Mr. Maude, stipendiary magistrate, referring to the...

Select Poetry. A MASONIC CHAUNT FOR REVOLUTIONARY TIMES. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 20 April 1849

Select Poetry. A MASONIC CHAUNT FOR REVOLU- TIONARY TIMES. With a tempest roaring round her, and before a rushing blast, The good ship Bonny England sails fearlessly and fast; Quick lightning flashes glare athwart the dark and troubled sky, But still the red-cross pennon floats, a meteor flag on high ; Hoarse thunders boom incessantly, and the angry sea replies, In a voice of fearful menace, to the clamour of the skies ; But, still unscathed, the ship holds on her free and fearless path, Nor heeds the angry thunderbolt, nor heeds the lightning's wrath; The fountains of the deep are loosed, and throb, and heave, and sway, No pause, no check, that vessel knows in her bold and onward way;   For, by her massive bulwarks, and on her decks there stand, Of steadfast men, with steadfast hearts, a stout and stalwart band, There are none more stout and steadfast among that gallant crew   Than the brethren of our ancient craft, the loyal and the true. To this good old...

BELFAST. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.)   There is in course of signature, a peti- tion to His Excellency the Governor, to put up the land between the Moyne and harbour in half-acre allotments, which has received the signatures of a great number of respectable parties. There is also another petition to the Government to put on the estimates cer- tain sums for the bridge over the Moyne, the Police Office, Lock-up, &c., &c., it ¡s very numerously signed, but I would ask how many of the persons whose names are attached are at school, and how many are under six years of age; really it is quite farcical to put such names forward in a petition to Her Ma- jesty's Representative.

THE ELECTORAL ROLL. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 24 April 1849

THE ELECTORAL ROLL. We direct attention to the letter of Mr. Alderman Kerr, which appears in another column, and to the startling facts therein disclosed.   It appears that after six years experi- ence in compiling the Electoral Roll for the District, a most deplorable state of affairs exists. Dead and disqualified men are returned in abundance, while in some localities, not one in ten of the parties really entitled to be on the Roll are included in the returns. This is more particularly observable in the Moonee Ponds, Merri Creek, and Dare- bin and Plenty Districts, no returns from these quarters having, to all appearance, been made for years. Outrageous as is this state of matters, it would not be fair to lay very heavy blame on the District Police, who are entrusted with the collection of the lists, for it is not to be expected that mere or- dinary constables should be qualified for the discharge of such a duty, neverthe- less it is inconceivable how such mon- strous...

THE LICENSING BENCH. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 24 April 1849

THE LICENSING BENCH. We find oursehes at issue with our contemporaries, as to the propriety of the course adopted last week, by the licens- ing Magistrates for the City. A strong case of hardship is attempted to be made out, on the part of the numerous appli- cants for new licenses. We go with these complainants so far as to demur to the suddenness of so striking a change in the proceedings of the licensing bench, and must confess that it seems hard, after we have been long accustomed to see licenses freely granted, both to places and to people scarcely fitted for what is usually considered an indulgence, that so decidedly different a course should be adopted, without a word of preparation, or a single syllable of warning to the numerous parties who have been invest- ing their all, or more than their all, in a particular manner, upon the faith of the continuance of the old order of things. But it is no novelty to find the neces- sity of individual interest having to suc- cumb to the...
