BELFAST. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 8 May 1849
BELFAST. &nbsp; (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) A great feeling of annoyance has been expressed by those persons who were lately summoned to Melbourne on the trial of the men for the mail robbery. Ten persons were drawn from this district at an expense of at least twelve pounds each, and all they were allowed by govern- ment was four pounds thirteen shillings each, a sum barely sufficient to pay for horse hire alone. Really something should be done to alter the allowance for witnesses, as many persons would rather put up with any loss or inconvenience before they would be put to such annoy- ance as a journey to Melbourne besides pecuniary Ribs, and as most of the wit- nesses in this case were in situations, the loss comes very hard upon them. The prosecution of these men could not have cost the government and the inhabitants of our unfortunate district less than £150, and what is the result? Three are acquitted, and the one who is found guilty gets—what? merely twelve months f...

REVISION COURT—GIPPS WARD. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 8 May 1849
REVISION COURT—GIPPS WARD. &nbsp; The Court for the revision of the Electoral List of Gipps Ward was held at the Britenoij Hotel, Swanston-street, before Alderman Kerr and Messrs. Brown and Crossley, Assessors. &nbsp; There were eighteen claims for enrolment on the Electoral Roll of the City, of whom thirteen succeeded in substantiating their claims, four were struck off for non-appearance, and one was disallowed, but as it was found that the name of this last applicant was already on the list for a different qualification, though incorrectly, the Court directed the mistake to be rectified. The successful claimants were Benjamin Bell, Thomp- son Breaden, John Brophy, Richard Capper, Edmund Finn, Henry Frenchham, Henry Groom, James Hyde, Thomas Kendall, James Nagle, Donald Campbell Simson, Henry Talbot, and John Wilson. On the revision of the list a very awkward question arose. A man named Patrick Kennedy had been returned for " a ball-court and house;" this is no qua...
ADJOURNED LICENSING SESSION. May 5th, 1849. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 8 May 1849
ADJOURNED LICENSING SESSION. May 5th, 1849. An adjourned licensing session for the City of Melbourne was held at the Police Office on Saturday last. &nbsp; The following Magistrates were on the Bench : —His Worship the Mayor, Dr. Wilmot and Cap- &nbsp; &nbsp; tains Mair and Hutton. Their Worships adjourned to their private room, and after an absence of half an hour, returned into Court with the following result of their deliberations. The Mayor said the bench had resolved to adhere to the decisions arrived at by the magis- trates on the general licensing day, and therefore had refused to entertain the numerous applica- tions sent in for a re-hearing. Mr. John Stephen entered into a long state- ment with a view of shewing that the several applications ought to be granted. Last year 105 licenses had been granted for the city, and this year the bench had refused to increase the num- ber, although the population had increased one third, owing to immigration and o...

THE LAST WARNING. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 8 May 1849
THE LAST WARNING. We beg, once more to remind our country friends that Saturday next, the 12th inst., is appointed for the revision of the Electoral List for the District, and that on their presence at the Police Office, Melbourne, on that day, depends not only their possession of the elective franchise, but also, in all probability, their voice in the election of the first Representative Legislature of the pro- vince. After the trouble that has been taken on their behalf, and the repeated warn- ings which have been given them, absence on such an occasion must be regarded as pretty conclusive evidence of unfitness for the possession of such an important pri- vilege, and we confess we shall be glad to see all who are away without sufficient cause struck out from the list of claim- ants. &nbsp;
SUPREME COURT. CIVIL SIDE. Before his Honor Mr. Justice a'Beckett, Resident Judge. Friday, May 4th, 1849. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 8 May 1849
SUPREME COURT. &nbsp; Civil Side. Before his Honor Mr. Justice a'Beckett, Resident Judge. Friday, May 4th, 1849. Jury—Messrs. William Highett, Samuel Jackson, John Jones, J. W. Howey. M'Dougall V. Semar. For plaintiff Mr. Stawell ; attorney, Mr. Ocock. For defendant Mr. Barry ; attorney, Mr Paynter. This was an action for excessive dis- tress, founded upon a statute of Henry III. Plaintiff was the defendant's tenant on the Carlton Estate, and the sum of £18 18s. being due for rent he (defendant) distrained upon a stack of hay, half a stack of wheat, and some other trifling articles. The hay only was sold, and realised £31 10. It was alleged that as the stack of hay alone was sufficient to cover the amount due, the levying on the other articles was an excessive dis- tress under the statute. His Honor directed the jury that a trifling excess would not render the landlord liable, and the jury returned a verdict for the defendant. Jury—Messrs. William Highett, J.W. Howey, Samuel...
Original Poetry. THE LOVER'S COMPLAINT. (FROM THE SWEDISH.) [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 8 May 1849
Original Poetry. THE LOVER'S COMPLAINT. (FROM THE SWEDISH.) Many times, of me, pretty maid who art singing, Many times my name is mingled in thy strain, Ever, ever fondly my heart to thee is clinging, Thou alone canst give my heart ease trom its pain. Lonely I feel when from thee I am parted ; No one will listen to my words of despair; Sadly I roam through the valley, broken hearted, Breathing forth my sorrows to the silent air. And when the moon o'er the deep vale is shining, Where first I beheld tbee,— that hallowed spot: Sorrowful I rove, at my sad fate repining, And ask if thy heart hath already forgot ! Shall I hear thee answer, bidding me perish ? Alas! of my heart's first sorrow shall I die? Ah! no, Wilhelmina will still bid me cherish The hope that she yet to my bosom will fly. A.R.

SYDNEY. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 11 May 1849
SYDNEY. (From our own correspondent.) There has been no material change in the markets during the current week. Wool and tallow appear, as far as I can leam, to be rather " looking up," but in the money market the pressure is rather increasing than otherwise. I am inclined, however, to think that this increase is only temporary. The death of Mr. James Simmons, who was reputed, at least, a large capitalist, may have had considerable share in it. In your paper of the 20th, I perceive you have quoted a paragraph from the Sydney Herald, relative to the prices fetched by certain horses which were exported from hence to Calcutta ; the nett price of these animals being, I think, £5 15s. 9d. each. Now I heard some- thing of these same horses from those who saw them before their shipment, and I am told that the price was a very good one, considering their quality. In fact, they are said to have been of an inferior description, and such as ought by no means to have been sent to the Indian &am...

Commercial intelligence. Sheep and Station.—Mr. Dalmahoy Camp- bell sold, on Wednesday, by auction, 1,250 sheep, with right of station in the Port Fairy district, at 12s 3d per head. Terms, half cash, the remainder by approved bills at 9 and 12 months, bearing bank interest. Mr. J. O. Taylor was the pur- chaser. The sheep were not warranted clean. The lines upon the newly discovered caves will not suit our columns, and dearly do we begrudge the eleven pence that they cost us in postage. Neither can we insert the stanzas upon the death of a female emigrant. There is in versification a pro- &nbsp; cess called scanning, of which the writer of those &nbsp; lines appears never to have heard.

The Magistrates on the Bench &nbsp; were his Worship the Mayor, Doctor Wilmot, and James Smith, Esq. The only business before the court was the taking of recognizances and investigating a charge against Mr. Greenway, as stated in Tuesday's Argus. &nbsp; &nbsp; Mr. Paynter entered into a long state- ment in defence of Mr. Greenway, to the effect that after the man Savage had left the "Cornwall Arms" on the 20th April a blanket had been missed; that in virtue of his office, being a con- stable in his capacity of landlord, he followed the man to his employer, (Mr. Riddell), and there insisted upon putting him in the watch-house on a charge of felony; that Mr. Riddell, who as a Magistrate should have committed the man, said to Greenway in a sharp tone, " If you take Savage to the watch -ho...
