To the Editor of the Melbourne Argus. [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 11 December 1846

Tu the Editor of the Melbourne Argus. Mr, EDITOR,-In my last of the 20th .November, I fully admitted the extreme .want of Labourers, under which Aus- tralia, is at this moment labouring, as well as the unreasonableness of the ex- pectation, that the squatters could, or or would, refuse an infusion of convicts, in the absence of workmen of a better stamp,-let me now proceed to ascertain whether such is the actual situation of the Colony at this present period. By the Report of the Committee, on the renewal of Transportation, an indifferent reader thereof, would be induced to form a very high opinion of the patriotism, and pub- lic spirit of its authors, as well as their abilities ; but there is an old Scottish proverb, " that it is not all gold that glitters, in plain English, that every man is not a pure philanthropist, who pleases to term himself so ! Now, let us apply this test to the subject before us. Admit- ting an importation of felons to be the beau ideal of perfect colonizat...

EARLY RECOLLECTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 11 December 1846

EARLY RECOLLECTIONS. Will they return ; the happy days I spent on.........s sunny braes, Can they return-those youthful years, Unmix'd with care, unfraught with fears. Friends of my heart-ye all are gone, And left me mourning here alone ; Puss'd like n dream-those joys for ever, Can they return-ah ! never-never. Yet still to thee would memory cling, And soar on fancy's airy wing; If sweet oblivion of my woes, Would grant me but a short repose. And bring again those scenes to view, When hearts were light and hopes were new When all around thut met my eye; Bespoke a bright futurity. In thee my dear, loved happy home, 1 sought no joys but thine alone ; Knew nought but blest patenta) love, Prized u» its source in Heaven above. And that-as time rojl'd on apace, To sacred friendship's ties guve place ; While the bright glow. Irom heart, to heart Seem'd firm a» rock of adumant. But like yon gloomy, wiutry cloud, That wraps the skies lu sable shroud ; So'led-like shades at duwn ot day, Now ...

Bomestic intelligence. IMPORTANT TO SIIFEP-OWNERS.-We strongly recommend our shtep owning friends to provide themselves as speedily as possible with a copy of the Scab and Catari h in Sheep Act, the publication of which is announced in another column, for we shrewdly suspect that more of them than have any idea of the fact are open not only to 'he infliction of heavy penalties, but are liable also to have their flocks seized. Parties having scabby sheep depasturing on lund adjoin- ing a public road, who have not given public notice of the existence of discise among their flock s require particularly to be ou the alert. ACADEMICAL INSTITUTION -We regret to karu tuat it is mteuded to break up the Port Phillip Academical Inititution at the close of the current quarter, a result which wc under- stand is attributable to the split at the time of Mr Brick«ood's resigning the Headmastership.
