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, OCTOBER 20, 1848. ANOTHER FRENCH REVOLU- TION. The second edition of the Launceston Examiner of the 14th inst., contains the following : By the Calcutta, arrived at Hobart town, and Agostina, at this port, from London, we have papers to the 30th June. The news they contain had, however, been anticipated by the arrival of the Peri from Mauritius with intelligence to nearly as late a date. By way of Ade- laide, we this morning received news to the 4th July. There was another san- guinary revolution in Paris on the 4th July, in which 14,000 persons were killed. It issued in a new government under Prince Louis Napoleon, who, it was sup- posed, would be at the head of a new monarchy. We do not think there is any reliance to be put upon this statement. It is only, in our opinion, the suppressed out- break in the latter end of June (already chroni...

Original Correspondence. To the Editor of the Argus. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 20 October 1848
Original Correspondence. To the Editor of the Argus. Sir,—I am glad to see the Daily denouncing the outrageous piece of jobbery now going on at the junction of Queen and Bourke Streets. Can you, either in your Editorial or Municipal capa- city, give a reason for what seems to the uniniti- ated the palpable absurdity of adding to the height of the hill and increasing the steepness of the draught in Queen-street? ENQUIRER. [Our correspondent was only to visit the locality &nbsp; in question, and cast his eye along the level of &nbsp; Queen-street, to get at the solution of his diffi- culty. If Queen-street had been cut down in front of the Theatre to anything like the original Government levels, filling up at the junction of Bourke-street would not have been necessary, and the property now buried would have stood upon a &nbsp; &nbsp; level—but then the Queen's Theatre would have been perched some three or four fleet up in the air, and that, of course, w...
