SYDNEY. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 4 May 1849
SYDNEY. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) I find that my late communication, as to the Governor's remarks on transpor- tation, although substantially correct, were deficient in detail, but you will have seen in the papers a full report of his Excellency's statement to the depu- tation upon this subject. I do not think that Port Phillip will be found to have &nbsp; gained much by the concessions which Sir Charles Fitz Roy has made to her, for although she is to escape the infliction of having ticket-of-leave men dispersed among her population, she will have to receive a class which, it is greatly feared, will prove far more dangerous—men over whom there is no check or controul on the part of Government; and who are cast loose among the people in the character of free labourers. The conduct of his Excellency has created the strongest excitement among all classes here, every evening during the present week there have been public meetings, for the forma- tion of Ward Committees to k...
Domestic Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 4 May 1849
Domestic Intelligence. NON-ELECTION.—The Globe in its &nbsp; city article says—"Accounts of August 10th have come to hand from Sydney, and 3rd August from Van Diemen's Land. The elections for repre- &nbsp; sentatives in the legislative council had engaged chief attention, and had resulted most curiously &nbsp; in the Port Phillip district. On the first occasion the returning officer was prevented from making up his books, and this illegality compelled a new election, a majonty was given in favor of Earl Grey! The Melbourne people, therefore, have virtually disfranchised themselves, and the ex- planation of the procedure is, that they desire a government separate from what is termed the middle district, or, in other words, they are dissatisfied that their revenue, &c., should merge into that of New South Wales generally." GEELONG. —The great incorporation meeting at Geelong stands adjourned until Tuesday evening next, 8th instant, when it is to be held...

TOWN COUNCIL. &nbsp; &nbsp; Wednesday, 2nd May, 1849. &nbsp; Present the Worshipful the Mayor, &nbsp; Aldermen Johnston and Kerr ; Coun- cillors Annand, Clarke, M'Namara, &nbsp; Murray, and Rankin. &nbsp; THE ASSESSMENT. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; An adjourned meeting of the Council &nbsp; was held at half-pastv-two o'clock, for the purpose of receiving the report of the Committee of the whole Council on the valuation of the city. His Worship the Mayor brought up the report, which shewed a reduction of £112 upon the valuation of the City, as made by the valuators Messrs. Ballingall and O'Farrell, viz. £1 in Gipps Ward, £50 in La Trobe Ward, and £61 in Lonsdale Ward. The principal altera- tions made on the re-valuation were a reduction of £50 on the Club House, Collins-street, £20 on the store in the occupation of Messrs. Griffiths, Fanning and Co., £15 on the store in the occupa- tion of Mr. Furtado, £ 15 on t...
IGNORANCE DETECTED IN THE GARB OF KNOWLEDGE. To the Editor of the Argus. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 4 May 1849
IGNORANCE DETECTED IN THE GARB OF KNOWLEDGE. To the Editor of the Argus. Sir,—The unjustifiable extent to which the characters of respectable men, who have deserved well of the community, are traduced and held up to public ridi- cule by some of our local journals, must be a source of grief to all good men. This is the more to be lamented, when persons who from their knowledge and experience have been selected by the people to fill public offices of trust and honor, are without the least foundation, represented as fit tools for carrying out any measure however mean in itself, or ruinous to their constituents. Let it not be supposed that I am an advocate for &nbsp; the suppression of free discussion, or desirous that there should be any in- fringement made upon the liberty of the press. Such is not the case, for I think these the greatest privileges of which we are possessed, and therefore the last of which we ought to allow ourselves to be deprived. But when men, who are dire...
ELECTORAL REVISION COURTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 4 May 1849
ELECTORAL REVISION COURTS. The period for the revision of the Electoral Lists being appointed by the Act, to be held between the 1st and 15th &nbsp; instant, the City Courts were held in &nbsp; the following order :— BOURKE WARD. His Worship the Mayor, as Alderman of Bourke Ward, with Messrs. Goldie and Sommerville, Assessors, held an open Court for the revision of the Ward list at the Crown Hotel, Lonsdale-street, on Tuesday, the 1st instant, at twelve o'clock. &nbsp; There were three claims for enrolment, two of which were struck out on account &nbsp; of the non-appearance of the claimants; the third Mr. Patrick O'Brien, for a &nbsp; freehold in Lonsdale-street, was sustained and the claimant's name enrolled. The only objection was against Mr. Councillor Stephen, who appeared on the Ward list as the occupant of a dwelling house in Bourke-street, and was objected to by Mr. Alderman Kerr. Mr. Plais- towe, solicitor, appeared for Councillor Ste...

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, MAY, 4, 1849. THE JUDGE AND THE PRESS. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 4 May 1849
The Argus. &nbsp; &nbsp; 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, MAY, 4, 1849. THE JUDGE AND THE PRESS. Mr. Justice a'Beckett has done with us, for the present. We have not yet done with Mr. a'Beckett. We wish that we could reconcile it with our conscience to allow this last escapade to sink into silence, and be forgotten ; but the attack was too bold, too shameless, too remark- able in every way, to be allowed to pass by as an ordinary nine days wonder. There is much instruction to be derived from its consideration, and it would be a gross injustice to ourselves, and to the public, to let it drop without adequate discussion. His Honor has most wan- tonly and gratuitously broken the truce lately proclaimed between us, dependent of course upon good behaviour on both sides, and he must now abide the conse- quences. The only semblance of an argument in favour of the late proc...

Biker, Old England Hotel, Heidelberg; Mr. G. Mouldy, British Museum Hotel, Richmond ; and Mr. Thomas Weekly, Rich- mond Hotel, Richmond.

SUPREME COURT—(CIVIL SIDE). Before His Honor Mr. Justice A'Beckett, &nbsp; Resident Judge. TUESDAY, 1ST MAY. The Court sat this morning, for the &nbsp; assessment of damages, in the following &nbsp; undefended causes. &nbsp; ASSESSORS.—Messrs. William Highett, J. W. Howey, William Hull, and James Jackson. McLaren v. Armitstead.—Mr. Williams, for plaintiff, stated, that this was an action of assumpsit, in which J. C. &nbsp; McLaren, Esq., Inspector of the Union Bank of Australia, was plaintiff. The action was, to recover the sum of £101 14s. 8d., due by defendant to the Bank. Mr. J. H. Smith, Managing Clerk to Mr. Duerdin, plaintiff's attorney, proved that Mr. Armitstead had, several times, admitted the debt, and promised to ar- range the matter. The jury assessed the damages at the amount claimed, £101 14s. 8d. James v. Mahony.—An action of as- sumpsit, for goods sold and delivered.

NO CONVICTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 4 May 1849
NO CONVICTS. OUR last issue contained a brief account, from our Sydney Correspondent, of the interview of the Sydney Anti-Pollution deputation with His Excellency the Go- vernor ; subjoined we give the official reply to the deputation. His Excellency said :— 1. Finding that there wonld be great difficulty in the absence of the requisite machinery, in pr- viding for the proper registration and discipline of any convicts who might be sent out to Port Phillip with a promise of receiving tickets-of- leave on their arrival, I was induced at the ur- gent request of His Honor the Superintendent of that District, to consent that any that might ar- rive there, pending the result of the communica- i'on which I deemed it necessary immediately to make to Her Majesty's Goveinment on the sub- ject, should be forwarded to the Middle District. 2. As, however, the Secretary of State has ex- pressly intimated to me that only a moderate number of persons of this description will be sent out to New Sou...

Select Poetry. THE OLD TREE. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 4 May 1849
Select Poetry. THE OLD TREE. &nbsp; It bends, as with the weight of many years, Over a brook—this venerable tree ; &nbsp; &nbsp; Not where the water lightly leaps along, Like giddy Youth, in chase of some gay dream ; But where it stops, to ponder mournfully, &nbsp; Like Age reflecting on the past with blame. Over this tranquil pool the Old Tree stoops, Grazing upon its semblance undisturbed. As though in self-inspection all-absorbed, Patiently waiting for its time to fall. 'Tis utterly alone in its old age ; With nought about it to companion it, Saving the faithful image on the brook, That steadfast sticketh to its ancient friend. The saplings, and the vigorous trees around, So full of life, evince no sympathy ; Swing their blithe branches to and fro with glee, And stretch, exultingly, every twig to heaven. They sing glad songs, and chatter to the breeze, And make a merry whistling with their leaves ; While the Old Tree's poor paralytic limbs, Rubbing...
