ENGLISH EXTRACTS. REFLECTIONS ON ITS OWN RETROSPECT. (From the Times, 3rd January, 1849.) [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 1 May 1849
ENGLISH EXTRACTS. Reflections on its own retrospect. &nbsp; (From the Times, 3rd January, 1849.) The retrospect which we presented on &nbsp; Monday of the commercial vicissitudes of the last eventful year is so suggestive of useful and even encouraging reflections, that we select one or two of its most conspicuous points; not only for a more particular illustration, but in order to recal the entire summary to the reader's memory. The year 1848 opened gloomily enough. The Continent, it is true, was apparently tranquil. The diplomatic combats in one peninsula, and the liberal movements in another, threatened no very serious influence upon European prosperity, nor was the calm of the poli- &nbsp; tical horizon actually disturbed in any &nbsp; quarter excepting the insular dominions &nbsp; of the Neapolitan Sovereign. Yet, not- withstanding this absence of any definite or palpable portent, misgivings of the future were serious in the extreme. The ...

PROCLAMATION. By His Excellency Sir Charles Augustus Fitz Roy, Knight Com- panion of the Royal Hanoverian Guelphic Order, Captain-General and Governor-in-Chief in and over her Majesty's Territory of New South Wales and its Dependencies, and Vice- Admiral of the same, &c., &c., &c. &nbsp; I, SIR CHARLES AUGUSTUS FITZ ROY, the Governor afore- &nbsp; said, do by this my Proclamation, pub- licly notify and declare, that her Most Gracious Majesty the Queen has been pleased by the Order in Council hereto annexed, to make and establish the addi- tional Rules and Regulations therein contained, for regulating the occupation of Waste Lands of the Crown, in the Colony of New South Wales ; and the period of six months having duly elapsed since the said Order in Council was laid before Parliament, I do further hereby notify and proclaim, that such Rules and Regulations shall and will come into effect within the said colony, on and from the date of this my ...
Domestic Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 1 May 1849
Domestic Intelligence. &nbsp; &nbsp; English.—The Colonial Times, a Hobart Town journal, quoting English news to the 3rd January, says:—" News from Van Die- &nbsp; men's Land to the 3rd August, and from Sydney to the 10th August, had been received, The pro- ceedings of the non-election faction of Port Phillip had excited some mirth. It is considered that the Melbourne people, by the election of Earl Grey and others, have disfranchised them- selves." [Of course they did; they refused to recognise the farce of representation in Sydney &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; as enfranchisement, and would not have the shadow, if they could not have the substance.— Ed.A.] &nbsp; Sydney.—The Governor returned to Sydney on the 21st instant.—The Sydney Morning Herald states that Mr. Lyons, m agent for the Bank of Australia, has received noll« from the Attorney-General that the second lottery of the Bank property will not be allowed.— &nbsp; &...
SYDNEY. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPODENT.] [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 1 May 1849
&nbsp; &nbsp; SYDNEY. &nbsp; [From our own correspondent.] &nbsp; The news of to-day is brief, but import- ant.—The Anti-Transportation Deputies have had an interview with the Governor, who tells them that what he said at Port Phillip has been misunderstood. He has no power, he says, to prevent the import- ation of Prisoners, or their distribution in the Country, and Port Phillip must bear their share of them, as well as the Middle District. Those who land at Melbourne, how- ever, will be only prisoners with condi- tional Pardons, but in this part of the country we shall have Ticket of Leave holders, and every other class of convict. Under these circumstances, a disturbance of some description is pretty certain. The Executive Council have ordered the execution of Richardson, the Camp- belltown murderer, to take place on the &nbsp; &nbsp; 7th of May. &nbsp; &nbsp;
THE BUILDING SOCIETIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 1 May 1849
THE BUILDING SOCIETIES. &nbsp; We have to thank some of the gentle- men of the Committee of the Victoria Building Society, for showing us that a portion of our calculations upon these societies are founded upon a wrong basis, the position of the borrower being more favorable as compared with that of the depositor, than we were led by our calculations to believe. In treating of a subject of so compli- cated a nature, we lake no great sh/Je to ourselves for having erred. We have given the subject much consideration and have only been guided by a wish to place the woikings of these societies in a correct and intelligible shape before our readers. We shall take the first opportunity which our space will afford to show how far we have gone wrong and to complete our treatment of the subject.
THE CITY OF MELBOURNE. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 1 May 1849
THE CITY OF MELBOURNE. The Valuators, appointed by the Corpo- ration, have finished their labours, in furnishing a new assessment for the City, with the exception of about half- a-dozen cases ordered for re-valuation, yesterday, by the Committeee of the whole Council, appointed for the purpose of hearing appeals. The new assessment shows an enor- mous increase, both in the number and value of the buildings in the City, as compared with last year, as will be mani- fest from the following Returns.* NUMBER OF HOUSES. Total number of houses 2,819 Increase during the year. 3,246 427 AMOUNT OF VALUATION. Ward. &nbsp; Gipps. Bourke . La Trobe .. Lonsdale ......

THE TALLOW POT. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 1 May 1849
THE TALLOW POT. &nbsp; &nbsp; A flock of 3000 wethers, the property of Mr. W.I.T. Clarke, was last week, boiled down, at the establishment of Messrs. Philpott, and yielded an average of 40⅛lb each. There is something in this, which should be suggestive to our squatters. It is almost unnecessary to say, that these wethers were pretty nearly pure Leices- ter, a breed for which Mr. Clarke has long been celebrated. At this time when the price of wool is putting our settlers so severely to their shifts, we think the question might fairly be ar- gued, whether a very large portion of their number have not long been on the wrong tack altogether; whether the wool bale has not held too sovereign a supremacy over the, tallow cask. We know that the Leicester cry is an un- popular one ; that the fine wool rivalry (wholesome enough in its way,) has led to an utter intolerance, among the set- tlers, of any mention of a cross; and that a hint of the possibility of the su- perior pro...

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, MAY, 1, 1849. NO CONVICTS! [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 1 May 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, MAY, 1, 1849. N0 CONVICTS ! The report which our Sydney Corres- pondent gives of the result of the inter- view of the Sydney Anti-Transportation Committee with the Governor, as given in another column, might, if published without explanation, excite apprehension in the community that his Excellency contemplates breaking faith with the people of this Province, and that the inundation of convicts from the mother country with which we were threatened by Earl Grey is still contemplated. We hasten, therefore, to assure our readers that nothing of the kind ¡s to be dreaded. The Governor did not pro- mise to relieve us from farther importa- tions of Pentonvillainy should any such be contemplated, but he gave us the most distinct and unmistakeable assur- ance that he had interposed his autho- rity to prevent convicts under sentence from landing ...
Original Poetry. THE PRESS SHALL BE FREE[?] [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 1 May 1849
Original Poetry. THE PRESS SHALL BE FREE ! You may talk of your glorious freedom, Your laws, and your charters of Right; But where are they now when we need 'em, Alas ! have they all ta'en to flight? Shall we suffer the tyrants to drive us, Who call ourselves Britons and free; &nbsp; Shall we suffer them now to deprive us Of the standard of true liberty. What! shall the Republic of letters By the chains of oppression be bound ; Shall opinion be galled by their fetters, And sink into darkness profound ! Arise ! if there's spirit among us, Shall we turn from the contest and flee ; Arise against those who would wrong us, Hurrah ! for the Press shall be free. The Press shall be free, for we prize it — We are not afraid of a frown. The truth! we shall never disguise it, &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Hurrah ! we will not be put down.

Select Poetry. BIDE A WEE BIT. TO TAM RODGERSON. That the warld aye keeps turning, philosophers say, And naething maun stand still 's the rule o' the day; When things canna get waur, Tam, 'tis folly to fret, They'll turn and get better, Tam—bide a wee bit ; &nbsp; They may smoor up the ingle, to keep down the lowe &nbsp; O' knowledge ; but yinöe get it into the paw, How it gathers and smudges, until it's ower bet, Then it bursts wi' a fury, Tam !—bide a wee bit. The langer we live, the mair strange sights we see, Is an auld farrant proverb—what's mair, 'tis nae lee ! For wiser and wiser we ilka day get, Till we make the warld better, Tam—bide a wee bit. They may cry against steam, as a curse to the land, And rail against railways they canna withstand ; But they will be a blessing, I'll wager you yet, To them that come after us—bide a wee bit! &nbsp; There's plenty o' room in this warld for us a', &nbsp; If the great folk wad britherly look on the sma'...
