Domestic Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 24 April 1849

Domestic Intelligence.   St. George's Dinner.—We have de- tained our Supplement for u few hours, to give   our readers particulars of the proceedings at a   numerously attended dinner of the sons of St. George, which took place last evening at the Protestant Hall. The supplement will be issued     in the course of the day. A tone of illiberality   has pervaded this affair, which would have justi- fied our passing it unnoticed altogetheir but that we believe it presents matter of some interest, and we are unwilling to rcbcnt upon our readers, a slight emanating from a portion, we trust but a small portion, of the committee. The extreme   exclusiveness of the dinner may probably be ex- cused by a reference to former experiments of   more mixed assemblages of a similar nature, but it will scarcely be believed, when we assert it, that at a meeting of the Stewards of a dinner pro- misi...

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 whose list." TUESDAY, APRIL 24, 1849. BAD NEWS FOR "BUGGINS." [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 24 April 1849

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." TUESDAY, APRIL 24, 1849. BAD NEWS FOR " BUGGINS." Our readers will learn with equal amusement and surprise, that the pro- ceedings against the proprietor of this journal, for the publication of a speech by Alderman Johnston, are at an end. On Friday last an intimation from the Crown Solicitor was received by our legal ad- viser, that he need not be at any trouble in the matter, as no further steps would be taken. No explanation was given of this strange termination of the late most extraordinary attempt at persecution. We can at present, therefore, only congratu- late that portion of the Port Phillip public who can appreciate the advantages of a free press, upon the signal defeat which has been sustained by the parties (of whom more anon), who, at this time of day, could entertain the wild notion of depriving the Press of one of its most obvious,...

ON THE USE OF ARSENIC IN AGRICULTURE. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 24 April 1849

ON THE USE OF ARSENIC IN AGRICULTURE.   The following article was published in the form of a letter in last Saturday's Lancet by Mr. Henry William Fuller, assistant-physician to, and lecturer on medical jurisprudence at St. George's Hospital :— " In these days of alarm respecting cholera, any facts suggesting an occa- sional and hitherto unsuspected source of gastric irritation cannot fail to prove interesting to the medical practitioner; and as the circumstances I am about to communicate have an important bearing not only upon the sanitary condition of our population, but upon the whole question of poisoning by arsenic, I need make no apology for laying them at once before the profession. " For some months past, in certain parts of Hampshire, partridges have been found dead in the fields, presenting a very remarkable appearance. Instead of lying prostrate on their side, as is usually the case with dead birds, they have been found sitting, with their heads erect and the...

MISCELLANEOUS. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 24 April 1849

MISCELLANEOUS.   A Sermon for Spinsters.—The cele brated Dr. John Dow gave the following very excellent advice to the young ladies of his flock :—" The buxom, bright- eyed, rosy-cheeked, full-breasted, bounc- ing lass who can darn stockings, mend trousers, make her own frocks, command a regiment of pots and kettles, feed the pigs, chop wood, milk cows, wrestle with the boys, and be a lady withal " in com- pany," is just the sort of girl for me or for any worthy man to marry. But you, ye pining, moping, lolling, screwed-up, wasp-waisted, putty-faced, consumption- mortgaged, music-murdering, note- devouring daughters of fashion and idle- ness, you are no more fit for that itnoDj than a pullet is to look after a family of fourteen chickens. The truth is, my dear girls, you want, generally speaking, more liberty and less fashionable res- traint ; more kitchen and less parlour; more leg exercise and less sofa; more pudding and less piano ; more frankness and less mock modest...

Original Correspondence. To the E[?]rs of the Electoral District of Port Phillip, in the Police District of Bourke. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 24 April 1849

Original Correspondence.   To the Electors of the Electoral District of Port   Phillip, in the Police District of Bourke. Gentlemen,—In corsequence of numerous ap- plications made to me in reference to the District Electoral Roll of the ensuing year, I was induced on Friday last to examine with some care the list just returned to the Clerk of the Bench for the County of Bourke, from which is to be com- piled so much of the Electoral Roll of the ensuing year, as refers to this portion of the district. I was prepared, gentlemen, to find a " ravelled pira" for it is not to be supposed that the ordinary constables to whom is entrusted the compiling of district returns of electors, can be very au fait at   determining upon the qualificatiions which confer the elective franchise, but I assure you that far from imagining the actual position of affairs I was perfectly appalled to find that on the very eve of Separation, and with the immediate prospect ...

OUR IMMIGRATION PROSPECTS. (From the Sydney Morning Herald.) [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 24 April 1849

OUR IMMIGRATION PROSPECTS. ({From the Sydney Morning Herald.)   Although no notification had appeared in the London Gazette, down to the 27th of December, of the revocation of the Order in Council declaring New South Wales to be no longer a place to which British criminals might be trans- ported, it is yet known in the colony, and we believe officially, that the deed hiad been done. At this moment, there- fore, New South Wales is in the degraded position from which it was relieved, on the 22nd May, 1840, by the Queen's Most Excellent Majesty in Council, when it was solemnly ordered, as the colonists believed, for ever, that from and after the first day of August then next ensuing, felons and other offenders in the United Kingdom, then being or thereafter to be under sentence of trans- portation, should not be sent to any of Her Majesty's colonies in New Holland, other than Van Diemen's Land and Nor- folk Island, Thus have we been hurled back nine years ! It is also know...

TRIALS AND TRIUMPHS OF GENIUS. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 24 April 1849

TRIALS AND TRIUMPHS OF GENIUS. A few weeks since we inserted the   description of a new bridge built by a Mr. Remington, of such frail materials, and of so slight a construction as to be almost incredible. It consisted of strips of common deal, tapering from two inches to one inch in thickness, and although extending over a span of 84 feet, and capable of great farther extension, it was sufficiently strong to carry a very considerable weight. The following letter of the inventor contains as graphic and pathetic a picture of the struggles and privations of a great man, as we ever remember to have met with. (From Hunt's Magazine for November.) Those who have read the narrative of the sufferings of ragged and hungry Genius, as told by the sufferers them- selves in Johnson's Life of Savage, and in Goldsmith's Vicar of Wakefield, will listen to the following letter, addressed to a distinguished gentleman in this country, a chapter of autobiography, with like interest, for li...

Select Poetry. THE "BRITISH LABOURER" AT ANDOVER. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 24 April 1849

Select Poetry. THE " BRITISH LABOURER" AT   ANDOVER.   I'm Stephen Witcher, labouring man—of An- dover I be, A pauper of the workhouse, and a cripple in the knee; The Guardians there have sent me out, here, in the cold and rain, To sit all day, a breakin' stones in agony and pain. I've arn'd my living honestly and fairly all my life,         And so, till lately, did suppoort a vamily and wife ;       I broke my thigh some time agoo, but still I struggled on, Notwithstandun that's left me wi' a 'largement   'o the bone. But, twelve months gone come Christmas, I was cuttun' of a tree, When, by ill luck, my axe did slip, and open laid my knee ; The neighbours put me in a cart, and took me whoam to bed, Wherefrom 'twas full five months afore I lifted up my head.   Lame us I was, I couldn't work ; zo what was I to do? Unto the Boord o' Guardians I...
