MAURITIUS PRICE CURRENT. 20th February, 1849. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 27 April 1849

MAURITIUS PRICE CURRENT. 20th February, 1849. It is satisfactory to have to report a continua- tion of favorable weather for the next crop; the rains have continued, and the plantations are very forward and remarkably fine in all the dis-   tricts, and unless the disease which still lingers   here affects the cane, the crop will be abundant.   The present crop is going forward rapidly.   There is now 35,000 tons shipped, and about 1,800 tons in the harbour, and it may be ex- pected to reach from 45 to 48,000 tons, leaving about 10,000 to be shipped. More specie is expected, and as only about 10,000 tons of our crop remain to be shipped, and remittances will be required for imports,   exchange will lower. Sugar.—Prices have been maintained as there begins to be a scarcity in the market. Beef.—A small parcel ex Skerne, from Port Phillip, was eagerly purchased at 19 dollars; this quantity will be only sufficient for a few...

MISCELLANEOUS. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 27 April 1849

MISCELLANEOUS. " There's no rose without a thorn." Yes, there is ; there's the prim-rose. Height of Impudence.—The tax gatherer calling for a Christmas-box.— Punch. A RAILWAY DIALOGUE. Says Jock to Bill, " I'm tired quite ; (As on the railway riding,) There's nothing here that meets my sight, But main-line, switch, and siding ; I'll have a nap, and shut it out." Says Bill, " Don't close your peepers,   For don't you know the carriage wheels Run always on the sleepers." ln 1843 the Mexican government issued a decree, declaring that all foreign shopkeepers, who did within six months marry natives of Mexico, should be com- pelled to " shut up shop." About the 1,590th part of the Great Pyramid of Egypt is occupied by the chambers and passages ; all the rest is solid masonry.   The Criminal Judge of Canton has strictly prohibited the drowning of female children, and has also issued severe pro- hibitions against lotteries. A legal gentleman, who paid his ad- dres...

ODDS AND ENDS. (From late European Papers.) [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 27 April 1849

ODDS AND ENDS. (From late European Papers.) Several droves of Highland cattle have lately been sent from Perth by railway to London, where they have arrived within twenty hours after their depar- ture, and in as good condition as if tbey had merely travelled a short day's journey on foot.—-The Parisian police have discovered and apprehended a band of robbers, whose leader kept a regular set of books, in which each thief was credited with the amount produced by the articles which he had stolen, and was debited with his receipts and his share of the joint expenses, while an en- gagement book contained a list of the theatres, churches, and other places, which were to be visited on certain days, by particular members of the gang.—An American paper says that a fire in Price's umbrella manufactory, in Philadelphia, has been satisfactory ascertained to have originated in the ignition of a box of lucifer matches from the gnawing of a mouse.—James I. of England, once went out of his way to h...

COLONIAL WINES. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 27 April 1849

COLONIAL WINES.   A correspondent of the Sydney Morn- ing Herald, in the course of some re- marks upon the various modes of increas- ing our exports, makes the following suggestions with regard to our colonial wines ; and they appear to contain some useful hints to the patrons of this most valuable and delightful culture :— Perhaps I may use this opportunity to mention a subject which bears upon the object of the proposed association—the establishment of a merchant in Sydney (and in other parts after a time) who shall deal in colonial wines, and in no wines which has been produced in another country ; by these means we should be protected against fraud, and our wines would have fair play : for besides spoiling the article for our own use, the interests of all those who enjoy the profits of imported wines must be engaged against us, in the prospect of exportations from our now extensive vineyards, to the adjacent colonies ; a business which can be conducted without any a...

MOUNT MACEDON. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 27 April 1849

MOUNT MACEDON.     (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.)   The winter appears to have set in Upon us this season much earlier than usual in this district, for some length of time we have had some severe frosts, which have been as destructive to the verdure as the excessive heat of the summer's sun, so that until spring visits us, we need not expect much pasturage ; the Settlers in the neighbourhood of the Wimmera, Lower Lodden, Avoca, &c., have been very badly off all this season for water, the most of them have been completely dried out, and have had to fly   to other more favoured regions with their flocks ; if the weather continues with them as it is in this neighbourhood, they will soon have plenty of water to enable them to occupy their homesteads again for a time. We have had a visit from the Lord Bishop of Melbourne, who dined with about twenty-four of the in- habitants at the Inn, he appeared quite at home amongst the peopl...

Original Correspondence. To the Editor of the Argus. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 27 April 1849

Original Correspondence. To the Editor of the Argus. Sir,—Although an Englishman, I quite hold with you respecting the St. George's dinner ; I was present, and rose to speak ; on what grounds has an Englishman a right to refuse hospitality to another country? Let him go to another coun- try, and see if they would refuse him the hospitality that he refuses them. I say no: I cannot call him an Englishman, that excludes all but his own country. I had a right to be heard, and I would have said a Scotchman, or an Irishman   was as good as him. I remain, Sir, Your obedient servant, FREDERICK W. BOARDMAN. Freemason's Hotel.   [The sound principle of this epistle     induces us to insert it ; the true English sentiments it contains making ample amends for any little want of polish. We did not, however, object to the ex- clusiveness of the dinner, so much as to other portions of the proceedings. Previous experiments of mixed assem- blages a...

ENGLISH NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 27 April 1849

ENGLISH NEWS. By way of Adelaide, English intelli- gence to the 3rd January has been re- ceived. We glean the following items of intelligence from the summaries of our South Australian contemporaries:— The Queen and Royal Family were at Windsor. There was scarcely any branch of British manufacture which had not lately experienced a beneficial re-action, or prosperous impulse from the late con- vulsions in Continental Europe. The recent disturbances in France were likely to conduce to a most important event namely, the removal of the fancy silk trade from Paris and Lyons to England. There was a decided upward tendency in the Wool Market, and an early notice of some marked improvements in prices may be confidently expected. Mr. Cobden had proposed a budget re- ducing the national expenditure, chiefly in the army and navy estimates, by £10,000,000. It was chiefly founded on reports of the Liverpool Financial Reform Association, which had made some very important revelations. A society ...

  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 27, 1849. THE INCORPORATION OF GEELONG. The cloven foot of the Geelong con- spiracy is, at length, revealed in all its naked deformity, and a desperately ugly exhibition it most assuredly is. We told our Geelong friends when we first heard of the existence of the secret conclave, and knew of the Advertiser's connexion with it, that the silly pretence of quarrelling with the mere style of the Corporation would not account for what was going on, and we warned them that there were more deadly designs against their liberties in contemplation. The re- sult shews that our expectations were well founded, for it is now avowed that it is not the mere form of incorporation that is cavilled at, but that it is actually en- deavoured to subvert the fundamental principle of municipal institutions, in o...

Original Correspondence. To the Editor of the Argus. Sir,—You have, by publishing a report of the late St. George's festival, shewn that you rightly understand and fulfil the duties of your Editorial   office. Notwithstanding the exclusive character of the arrangements made for this national de- monstration being utterly repugnant to your English feelings, and the extreme illiberality of     the Stewards, in wantonly omitting that courtesy   to the conductors of the public press which is usually paid them, being an insult to your pro- fession, you purchased an opportunity of reporting, and supplied your readers and subscribers with an account of the whole proceedings; you would not allow the gratification of your personal feel-   ings to disappoint the expectations of the public. Different, however, has been the conduct of your   contemporary the Herald. He has received simi- lar treatment at the hands of ...

Select Poetry. MOVE A LITTLE FASTER. AN APPEAL TO A SLOW STATESMAN. (Not yet sung by Russell.) [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 27 April 1849

Select Poetry. MOVE A LITTLE FASTER.   AN APPEAL TO A SLOW STATESMAN. (Not yet sung by Russell.) The world is moving, so are we, Time runs while you repose, man ;   The people warm   To the word " Reform,"   And shout it while you dose, man. They claim the rights too long denied By Whig and Tory master, So pray, Lord John, keep jogging on, And move a litter faster. It will not do to hide your head In the holes of Downing Street, man, And refuse to hear, Loud, steady, clear, The tramp of the people's feet, man. Britannia has a work in hand, Which Fate and Right have cast her ; It must be done, you dull Lord John, So move a little faster. If " Forward" be the nation's cry, 'Twill lead to mischief sore, man,   If you still hang back On the proper track, And fall asleep and snore man. Think of the fate of Whiglings all, Lost sheep without a pastor ; And lead them on, you dull Lord John, And move a little faster. No lazy lo...
