SHIPWRECKS. To the Editor of the Melbourne Argus. [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 24 November 1846

SHIPWRECKS. Toitlvi Editor of the Melbourne Argus. ' SiR,~It being proposed, under Di- vine blessing, to hold n public meeting in the course of a few days for the fur- therance of immigration from the mother ! country, of which due notice will be given by requisition, mid coasider whether any measuiea can be devised to diminish shipwrecks, aud the drownings arising thereirom. I trust you will, in the in- terval, call the attention of all persons whose interests are concerned in the in- troduction of labour into the colony, to the subject. As I view the matter, their interests are deeply concerned, besides the claims of humanity. So much has lately appeared in our local journals on this subject, that to say more would, I conceive, be to forestal the business of rihe meeting, and be distasteful to the public. The evil either admits of a remed? to a great extent, or it does not. I hand a copy of this, and of this date, to each of our local journals. And am, with respect, Sir, Your most...

PUBLIC MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 24 November 1846

PUBLIC MEETING. AN official notification convening a pub- lic meeting of the inhabitants to take into consideration the subject of immigration to this province, and in connexion there- with, the improvement of the mercantile marine, appears in our columns of to- day. The meeting, Ave believe, has been got up chiefly through the instrumentality of Mr, Ballingall, who has devoted his at- tention during a great portion of his life to the accomplishment of such an im- provement, in the construction of mer- chant ships, as will ensure the salvation of human life, and property, disasters of which we have had such harrowing ex- amples almost at our own doors within a vrry recent period. The agitation for the accomplishment of an object so truly noble, would, no doubt, have been better begun, and more certain of a successful issue, if England, instead of this remote Province, had been the scene of operation ; but the duty of exertion in such a cause is not less urgent upon the people of Por...

I am, &c, WILLIAM KERR. rmvATE. Patriot Office, Saturday, 21 st Nov. SIR-It would appear, from your publication of yesterday's " Ancus" that you have succeeded, through the dishonesty of some of my servants, (reflecting little credit upon yourself as the n «tuer of stolen property,) in obtaining possession of a document (out of my office) purporting to bo an account between Mr lankner and myself. Although I might reasonably arraign your privi- lege to publish private letters, either lawfully or surreptitiously obtained-and perhaps, w«re I of vindictive as yourself, do something more-my prestnt object is to remove doubts, if any exist, as to the authenticity of the document, ard ...

Animalcules are not to be found in all fluids; none are to be found in wines,-^r any other fermented liquor which has not passed into the state of vinegar, or which has not become completely vapid, neither are they to be found in distilled or spring water.-The itch, according to Willan, I is caused by an insect, white, with eight reddish legs, to four hind ones of which is appended a bristle ; it may be distin- guished with the microscope in the vesicles of the joints which accompany the dis- order. On the same authority we learn that most of the diseases of the sk:n are occasioned by other insects.-Ninety millions of eggs of the cheese mite are not so large as one pigeon's egg.-Sponges are believed to consist of excitable flesh, full of small mouths, by which they absorb and eject water.-The phosphoric light seen in the ocean is believed to be caused by innumerable quantities of phos- phoric insects.-Amber grease an in- ternal production of diseased spermaceti ...

To the Editor of the Melbourne Argus. Sir-I shall feel obliged if you will publish in your next number the following detailed account of the circumstances which induced me to appear as a plaintiff before the Police bench on Friday   last. On the afternoon of the 11th November, I proceeded on board the Maitland, (at anchor in Hobson's Bay,) in company with Mr. William Nicholson, and Mr. Robert Mouat ; at Liardet's     Mr. Crossley joined us, we proceeded to embark, and before putting off, Mr. Webster, the snuff manufacturer, and Mr. Patterson, shoemaker, came up and shipped in the same boat. Upon our arrival on board the vessel, I found the doctor, (recognizable by his gold band on cap) and stating that I wished to engage a few people asked him if there were any rough carpenters on board, he answered he believed there were ; I thereupon desired that they might be brought to me, the doctor took the trouble to fetch me a man, whom he represented a...

To the Editor of the Melbourne Argus. SIR-It is hoped that the following ably-written Poem will find a place in your valuable journal, and will prove useful to at least one who has not yet leaped into the fire. LINES WRITTEN ARTER LISTENING TO DR. ROSS'S HUMOROUS BUT DANGEROUS REMARKS ON LOVE, COURTSHIP, AND MARRIAGE. In England, (I've forgotten where,) There lived a young and happy pair Whose unknown history migut convoy Unknown amusement to the gay. The lass, a rose without a thorn, AH-charming on the bridal morn, The bridegroom by experience found, "When stalest best udorn'd the ground ; So when the charmer dared to frown, He up with fist, and knock'd her down. Sut eloquence convinced him soon, He'dfloor'd, with her, the honey-moon: Moreover, he was told that roses Would flourish in the lund of noses. How strange, that love so soon should die ! ,They drank-but, reader, so do I; And moisture surely wont impair The sweetness ol' a mellow pair. Perchance, when they began their fight...
