To the Editor of the Melbourne Argus. [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 8 December 1846

To the Editor of the Melbourne Argus. [ Sin-Resuming the consideration of the subj'ect of penal immigration, I beg to assure you that, although opposing to the death, the introduction amongst us of any description of convicted cn minai'', I am as thoroughly impressed us any one can be, with the paramount necessity of a con- stant and contini ed supply of labour. I main- tain that such of the settlers as advocate the con- tinuance of a stream from so loul a source as we have lately become accustomed to, are wrong in sacrificing the good name of themselves, their country, and their children, to any pecuniary consideration whatever, but I do not deny their importance in our community, nor question for a moment that their welfare is inseparably bound up with our own.

PUSEYISM IN MELBOURNE ! TO JAMES SIMPSON, JAMES DENHAM PINNOCK, AND KOUEKT WILLIAMS POHLMAN, LSQ.UIRES, TRUSTEES Ol' ST. PETER'S NEW CHURCH. GENTLEMEN-I am not aware of the particular claims that you may have in- dividually on this community, but, as trustees of tbe uew church, you have earned for yourselves collectively, a re- putation which no conscientious man need envy you ; your names will be sounded through ttie Australiau Colonies as the first founders in Melbourne, of the thing mis-called Puseyism and Newman ism, but which is in effect-Romanism in its most repulsive features. As n feeler, you have " hung out the banner" of Popery on the outward walls of the New Church, Were there, I ask, no other ornaments to be had but those pur- loined from the Roman faith ? Were you forced to borrow father Tberry's CROSS, to adorn your edifice 1 Surely you might hine found an object of ido- latry of a less iinti-Protestant character?

To the Editor of the Melbourne Argus. Sut-Awarding you the character windi has been always accorded you, I trust the following will obtain insertion. Ata meeting of the Melbourne Cricket Club, held this dav, the members unanimously repudi- ated the false, scandalous, and malicious, assertion contained in the P. P. I'atnot of yesterday, t'iat the spread provided upon the cricket ground by Mr. Passmore on Saturday last was not equal to that provided by him upon the previous occasion, whereas in truth and in fact it so far eclipsed it as to give universal satisfaction of the members. 1 he motive of the writer, who bears tliesoiiArt quet of the " toe sucker," is obvious u dismissal from the domicile of M »DAME, in conjunction with the overpowering influence of a good feed at the public rooms of the " first chop," as he is absurdly designated, is conclusive. I am. Sir, lour obedient servant, A CRICKETER. Dec. 7, 1846._
