Domestic Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 27 April 1849
Domestic Intelligence. HUSBANDS AND WIVES.—A question was mooted at the Police Office on Wed- nesday which may prove interesting to the fairer sex. In a case under the Masters and Servants Act, Mr. Hull, one of the presiding Magistrates, said he had often thought whether a woman was bound by an agreement entered into by her husband which included herself. Mr. Paynter, solicitor, in reply, said a woman was in duty bound to obey her husband, and therefore of necessity the wife became a consenting party to any agreement entered into by the husband. Mr. Hull was of a different opinion ; for instance, if a man agreed to go to a foreign country, surely the wife was not obliged to go with him. Mr. Paynter said the husband could compel her. Mr. Hull enquired what authority said so. Mr. Paynter replied the law, which was a strong authority. Mr. Hull denied it, and in support of his position said that a man could not compel his wife to leave England without the con- sent of the Queen. He thou...

Domestic Intelligence. The St George's Dinner—We have lately been favoured with several disserta- tions upon the propriety of accurate reports of public doings, and with a slight sketch of the &nbsp; degree of perfection, which the art of reporting has attained in this district. We have never met, however, with a richer specimen of the art, than &nbsp; that furnished us by the report of the St George's dinner, in the Daily News of Wednesday. A very brief sketch of the proceedings was given, many very good speeches were altogether omitted, but a speech of Mr Fawkner was given in extenso, &nbsp; not one word out of a hundred of which was &nbsp; ever spoken. The fact was that Mr Fawkner had gone prepared with a very elaborate address &nbsp; upon agricultural pursuits, but withheld any but a very summary sketch, from fancying that the dinner was taking less its legitimate course, than that it was to be a sort of puff for Alderman &nbsp; Gr...

THE DISTRICT ELECTORAL ROLL. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 1 May 1849
THE DISTRICT ELECTORAL ROLL. &nbsp; We give in another part of to day's im- pression, the list of claims which have been lodged with the Clerk of the Bench, for enrolment in the District Electoral Roll, in order that all parties may have timeous warning of the effort which is being made to secure to them the posses- sion of the elective franchise, to which it is believed they are entitled, and which it is of the utmost importance they should secure, now that the province is on the eve of separation from Sydney, and we are to have a representative Legislature of our own assembling in Melbourne. The District magistrates, to whom is entrusted the revision of the Electoral lists, and consequently of determining upon the validity of these claims, have appointed Saturday, the 12th instant, for that purpose, it will be necessary, there- fore, that all the claimants should be in attendance at the Police Office on that day, and surely when a privilege of such &nbsp; vital imp...
THE ARGUS PERSECUTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 1 May 1849
THE ARGUS PERSECUTION. A REFERENCE to yesterday's proceed- ings at the adjourned Court of Quarter Sessions reported in another column will furnish our readers with the con- &nbsp; cluding scene in one of the most singu- &nbsp; lar farces, with which the Public of Port Phillip have been regaled. The sessions have been twice adjourned for the express purpose of trying the case, the Queen v. Wilson ; but ten days since, our Solicitor received the notice we have before an- nounced, of the discontinuance of the proceedings ; the bill of indictment was removed from the file ; and yesterday our recognizances were discharged, and the whole affair dismissed, without the delay of one minute, or the slightest attempt to explain the reasons of so mysterious and unusual a proceeding. The pro- prietor of this journal has therefore been subjected to considerable annoyance, and expense; has been dragged about from &nbsp; court to court, and fretted with all the ingenuity for...
THE INCORPORATION OF GEELONG. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 1 May 1849
THE INCORPORATION OF GEE- LONG. To follow the Geelong Advertiser through the twistings and twinings to which he has recourse, in order to evade the force of public opinion, is no very agreeable task, but we feel the question of the In- corporation of Geelong, to be far too important in its influence on the inte- rests of the whole community, to admit of our suffering the fallacies, which are resorted to for the purpose of misleading, to pass unexposed. &nbsp; To cover the nefarious attempts of the conspirators, to subject the future muni- cipality of Geelong to the direct influ- ence of the Government, the Geelong Ad- vertiser, which, only a day or two since, was for sacrificing the principle of no taxation without representation, without a symptom of remorse, has now, seem- ingly, flown round to the opposite ex- treme, and, on Saturday, comes out with a notable plan for securing his grand desideratum of Government influence, by taxing Crown property ; nay, so alive has he b...

Original Correspondence. To the Editor of the Argus. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 1 May 1849
Original Correspondence. To the Editor of the Argus. &nbsp; Sir,—I observe in todays Daily News an attempt made to justify the proceedings at the late St. George's Dinner on thie precedent of the St. Andrew's Society, which is stated to be " of the most exclusive character possible." &nbsp; I »tffi inform you that the only exclusive- ness A^ belongs to the St. Andrew's Society, is that of not allowing their English and Irish visitors to pay for participation ionScotch hospi- &nbsp; &nbsp; tality—for every member of the Society is at liberty to bring a visitor belonging to some other nation, and none are excluded from visiting save resident Scotchmen, not members of the Society. The exclusiveness of the St. George's Dinner, is not, however, what I find fault with, for that is merely a matter of taste, and I am not prepared to say that the arguments are not as strong for as against the course. But I can imagine no excuse for their treatment of the Press...

MISCELLANEOUS. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 1 May 1849
MISCELLANEOUS. A Matrimonial Umpire—" Fair play for the Bear." The following story of " Life in Kentucky" being in print, ought, of course, to be believed. The gentle partner of the bear's antagonist, however, is somewhat different in her style of conduct and feeling from some of the Kentucky ladies we have seen—but to the story :—Early one morning, the shouts and cries of a female were heard —all ran to the spot. When they arrived, they saw a man and a bear engaged in combat. They had it hip and thigh, up and down, over and under, and the man's wife standing by and hallooing " fair play." The company ran up, and insisted on parting them. " No, no," said the woman, let them fight ; for it's the first I ever saw that I didn't care which whipped." Angling for Snakes—A most excellent method of catching a snake was adopted by a person on Monday last, who came in contact with a black snake in a swamp. The reptile having taken refuge in a hollow stump, he obtained a fishing-line and hook,...
