PORT PHILLIP ELECTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 5 August 1848

PORT PHILLIP ELECTION. The Port Phillip District election, or rather whit ought to have been the election, has terminated in a manner without a precedent, we conceive, in the annals of British representation. The day for nominating five gentlemen to represent that Dis- trict in the Legislative Council was fixed for the 20th instant, and the proceedings terminated in the refusal of the electors -then assembled to nominate any candidate whatever. This strange abandonment of political rights appears to have been concerted by two or three well known agitators, and to have taken other parties so com- pletely by surprise that they were unprepared to offer any opposition. The bulk of the electors seem to have shown utter indifference, Mr. Foster, one of the late representatives, being the only one who offered the slightest remark upon the danger or impropriety of the course proposed. - At the appointed time, the Returning Officer, Mr. Pohlman", . having opened the proceedings, Mr. Willis p...

THE POLLING. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 5 August 1848

THE POLLING. Wednesday last being the day appointed for polling for the election of a member to represent the counties "of Gloucester, Macquarie,,and Stanley, thè*Deputy Re- turning Officer for this division of the electoral district attended at the Police office, at nine o'clock a.m.» for the purpose of receiving the votes of the electors. From the circumstance that neither of the candidates had visited the district, or pub- lished addresses, or, indeed, communicated with the electors in any shape whatever, the election did not excite so much in- terest ,as_ jt otherwise would have done. Indeed, Jft -seemed to 'be the .general opi- nion that," considering'the';1ittler value both candidates put upon the suffrages of the electors here, neither the one or the other deserved their support ; and we are convinced that had another eligible can- didate beçh 'jnv the field, under different auspices, scarce one vote would have been given either for Mr. Archibald Boyd or Colonel Snodgrass.'

MILITARY MOVEMENTS IN FRANCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 5 August 1848

MILITARY MOVEMENTS IN FRANCE. Almost lost in the crowd of revolutions,and con- founded with them, there arc three cases of down- right invasion in various stages of progress. Tlie King of Sardinia has actually invaded the Italian dominions of Austria ; the King of Prussia and other German Sovereigns are preparing to invade the German dominions of the King of Denmark ; and the French Republic is on the point of invad- ing the whole dominions of his Majesty the King of 'the Belgians. Of the two former cases there is much to be said, but we shall content ourselves with only one observation at present, viz., that whatever their Majesties of Sardinia and of Prussia may be doing,' by whatever necessity or compul- sion they may be urged, they are at least acting openly. There is no mistake about the matters. They, are preparing to dare the resentment and the arms, not merely of tlie Powers whose terri- > tories they enter, but of all whom the alliances of interest or of feeling may urge...

Anything in shape of classification or sclectiqn from this immense mass of names, from every p irt of Ireland, is of course out of the question at this time. The names include the Protestant and Catholic primates (Lord John G. Beresford and the Most Rev. Dr. Crolly) ; the Catholic Arch- bishop of Dublin (Most Rev.

Alas ! I have seen " better days," I once was straight and firm, and strong ;     And horses, gigs, and loaded drays, Could pass my sturdy frame along.     But times are altered now, alack!   Old age and toll have bent my back ;   My joints are weak, my sinews slack, My timbers creak, my old bones crack, And now, by the ungrateful pack,   Let go to ruin, wreck, and rack,     I fear ere long my days will end,   An...
