SQUATTING. [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 4 December 1846

SQUATTING. THOUGH happening to be without the pale of Mr. Edward Curr's good graces, and, consequently, shut out from access to the correspondence of the Port Phillip Delegate, we have been favoured, through another channel, with the latest Parlia- mentary papers on the subject of the existing system of occupation of the Crown Lands of the Colony, and we give therefrom, in the fourth page of to- day's publication, the Regulations for the purchase of Homesteads, as agreed to, and recommended by, the Execu- tive Council. Abstaining for the pre- sent from remark upon the regulations themselves, we think it necessary to re- quest particular attention to the fact that, although there is no proposition for doing away with the existing squatting'system within the three Port Phillip Counties Bourke, G rant, and Normanby, it is ex- pressly stipulated that these regulation when they come in force, (if that sliouli ever happen,) are not to apply withii their boundaries. What this means, un les...

CONVICTS IN VAN DIEMEN'S LAND THE following dispatch shows that there   is to be considerable alteration made in       the treatment of convicts in Van Diemen's Land: - Copy of a despatch from the Right Honorable W.E.Gladstone to Lieutenant-Governor La     Trobe, Van Diemen's Land.     Downing-street, 16th May, 1846.   Sir,-The Representations which have lately reached me, relative to the state of the probation gangs and to the transportation system in gene   ral, appear to leave no doubt that the moral con-     dition of convicts too commonly deteriorates after     their arrival in Van Diemen's Land; and that   most of this deterioration arises, in great measure, from their being brought in contact with the older and more hardened convicts who have been some time in the colony.

THE SQUATTING QUESTION. Despatch of Sir George Gipps to Lord Stanley. Government House, Sydney, 4 February, 1846. [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 4 December 1846

---,- I I II THE SQUATTING QUESTION. Despatch of Sir George G ipps io Lord Stanley, Government House, Sydney, 4 February. 184G. My LORD-In my despntch of the 17th ultimo, mniked "separate" I stated to your Loidsbip, that nothing had been done by this Government oa the subject of squatting since the date of my despatch (No. 121) of the 2nd August 1845. It seems to me uow right to explain, that when I said nothing had been done, I meant nothing official, or which would in any manner pledge or shackle the Go- vernment; I did not mean that nothing had been done in the way of deliberation itr nrptiaratinn. At meetings of the Executive Council« held on the days named in the margin * " Regulations for the »ale of Home- stead!»" were brought under discussion, and advanced to a stale in which they probably would have been published, but for the arrival in the colony of the Bill which was introduced by your Lordship into the House of Lords in July 1845. I now enclose a copy of these proposed ...

THE VILLAGE SABBATH. [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 4 December 1846

THE VILLAGE SABBATH. THE aulk kirk bell was blythely ringing On Sabbath's silent morn;     The laverock her sang was singing, Up frae amang the corn ; Her upward flight still higher winging, On fluttering pinions borne. The sonsie bairnies a' were puin', Upon the whinny braes ; The wild blue-bell, and thyme and gowan, - Or gathering die slues, Or down the grassy knowes were rowin', Fyling their Sunday clues. No sound upon the stillness breaking, Save from the woodland bower, The blackbird's song the echoes waking, Its melody to pour ; The honey bee its sweets was seeking * In every fragrant flower. In the kirk-yard the auld were reading, With reverence and cure ; Around them pluy'd the young unheeding, The dead thut rested there Mouy tombs, that told how time was speeding To auld, und young, und fair. The dogs, that every day were fighting, Lay still ut ilku door ; '' The villuge ruudy ceusetl her fiyting, And gued, with look» demure, To the auld kirk to nu...

Tu the Editor of the Melbourne Argus. [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 4 December 1846

To the Editor of the Melbourne Argus.   SIR-I have long watched with considerable sorrow and anxiety the gradual but steady decline of this district from the high character of a free province, untainted by convictism in any of its   horrible forms, to its present condition of a mere receptable for expirées from Van Diemen s Land,     and Pentonvillains from the mother country -   But, when at last we are threatened by a proposal to receive convicts direct and in large numbers, I think it about time for those to speak out plainly, who, like myself, have no inclination to find themselves the citizens of a penal set- tlement The time for remonstrance seems especially opportune in consequence of the interest which the general question of emigration at present ex- cite, as indicated by the requisition for a public meeting to consider the subject, just presented to the Mayor. The proposition of the late Secretary   for the Colonies, addr...

TUE SQUATTING QUESTION. PRIVATE Letter from the Bishop of Aus- tralia to a friend in England, trans- mitted by Sir George Gipps, with the Bishop's leave, to the Secretary of State. Sydney, Feb. 17, 184C. }" My dear-: You have read, I {'»dare say, in common with the English public in general, au article in the Times of the 3d November, commenting upon the regulations proposed by Sir George Gipps in April, IQi-i, lor the manage ment of the districts beyond the boun- daries (commonly called the squatting distiicts) in this Colony. The question is evidently taken up in n party spirit ; and the animus of the entire article is such as makes me suspect that if it were not actually manufactured here, the ma- terials of it must Bt least have been ex- ported from this country. No person of common discernment will believe that these are the natural expressions of one who had merely read the New South Wales GAZETTE, in which the despatches relating to this question were published. These are the...
