SYDNEY. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 8 May 1849
SYDNEY. &nbsp; (From our own correspondent) I never knew Sydney more barren of intelligence than it is at the present moment. The nisi prius sittings at the Supreme Court commenced this morning, but I do not think there are more than eighteen or twenty causes for trial, and these will be insufficient to occupy half of the time set apart for this business. The falling off in law business is quite astounding, and I scarcely know what the Barristers will do for a living, unless the spirit of litigation is again aroused to some extent, of which there appears at present but little likelihood. There is a temporary lull in the anti- transportation excitement; all the Ward Committees are now formed, but no definite course has, as far as I can learn, been determined upon. The plan most generally talked of is an assemblage on the Circular Quay, to oppose by actual force, if necessary, the landing of con- victs, whenever they arrive ; but I doubt whether so extreme a course will be san...

THE LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 8 May 1849
THE LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. Mr. Edward Curr has finished his second term of office as a member of the Legislative Council, and the return of his services is, as before, nil, for beyond franking his letters, and playing an amusing little interlude with his carpet bag, which either went, or assayed to go to Sydney, there has been no symptom of legislation manifested by the Hon. gentleman during either of his two periods of membership. The people who style themselves real electionists, are, of course, furious with Mr. Curr, for leaving them in the lurch, &nbsp; and they now acknowledge they deserved no better treatment for putting their &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; trust in a man who stood confessed a traitor to his own principles. We plead guilty to feeling unmitigated pleasure at the result. At best dangerous to rely upon as a coadjutor, we feel that Mr. Curr could never have so effectually served the cause of non-elec...

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." &nbsp; &nbsp; TUESDAY, MAY, 8, 1849. THE LICENSING BENCH. It will be a source of gratification to our readers, to learn from another column, that the City Magistrates have &nbsp; adhered to the course adopted at the annual licensing meeting, and have again shown a decided determination not to allow the continued multiplica- tion of public houses. It required some little resolution to withstand the torrent of abuse which was heaped upon them, by the parties interested in the new applications, and by a portion of the local press, but we feel assured that the approval of their own consciences, and the testimony of all good men as to the wisdom of the step they have adopted, will make ample amends for any slight odium they may have incurred. An interference with the now re- cognised laws of free trade, which are doing so much ...
Original Correspondence. To the Editor of the Argus. Melbourne, 5th May, 1849. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 8 May 1849
Original Correspondence. &nbsp; To the Editor of the Argus. Melbourne, 5th May, 1849. Sir—I observe a letter in your Fri- day's number, signed Henry H. Nash, replying (as he says) to the complaints of Mr. Boardman, and others, relative to the exclusivenesa of the St. George's dinner. I acknowledge, Sir, the subject is al- together so mean, as to be hardly worth troubling you about ; yet for all, I think Mr. Nash requires some thanks, for the explanation he has so kindly tendered ; and which in my opinion, is just—no explanation whatever. What he terms his reply to Mr. Boardman, certainly abounds in such expletives, as,—"quite nettled,"—" an over-heated brain,"— " out of all order,"—" high dudgeon," —ending with—" non compos mentis," (I wonder what that means.) He then goes on to say, " You have been pleased to accuse of inhospitality, discourtesy, &c., a body of men whose intentions were strictly liberal, &c." (Fudge.) " I cannot," he says, "suffer these calu...
WARRNAMBOOL. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 8 May 1849
WARRNAMBOOL. (From our own correspondent.) Last week, Mr. Skene, Government Surveyor, sent up his report and plan of country lands around Warrnambool, sur- veyed by him, so that we now look for- ward for a sale at an early period. A great number of intending purchasers have been anxiously waiting, and for the further advancement of our township, I trust a sale of country lands will soon be held, so as to give parties time to have their seed in the ground this year. As the Government have done comparatively little for us, I hope they will bestir them- selves in this matter, as we look for sup- port to a large agricultural population, and for which this district possesses so many natural advantages. The Sophia, schooner, has been over- due for the last day or two, caused no doubt by contrary winds. She is now, I understand, regularly laid on this trade. The grain is fast arriving in town, and our two mills will be going for the next month or two. Next season, however, there will be su...
