MISCELLANEOUS. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 11 May 1849

MISCELLANEOUS.   How Mr. Smithson Proposed.—Mr. Smithson (an improvement on the name of Smith) wished to take Miss Brownly (another improvement) to the opera. He had been on terms of intimacy with the family for about five years, but " never spoke of love ; " on the contrary, he had frequently declared his intention of leading a bachelor life. One morning he put his hand on the bell handle and was admitted. " Oh, James," exclaimed Miss Jane, "where have you kept your- self so long ?" This took Smithson a little aback, for he had spent the preced- ing evening with the family. Before he could answer, however, Jane's   brothers and sisters (eight or ten in number) had gathered about him. Summoning all his courage, he said, "I am come to ask you"—"Not here, James—not now—oh!" "That is," stammered Smithson, "if you are not engaged " — " Oh, oh, water, quick," " What's that," inquired her father— " who says she's engaged ?" " I didn't mean," said Smithson, in con...

BELFAST. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 11 May 1849

BELFAST. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.)     The small debts Court came on last Saturday, and I certainly must say I was never more surprised at anything than I was at the inconsistency of Mr. Rutledge's conduct. On the court day in April Mr. Atkinson sued Mr. Torr for £10, being part of a £12 promissory note. Mr. R. sat on the bench, and allowed a verdict for plaintiff, although the de- fendant had not consented to such a course. On Saturday Messrs. Vodden and Hucklebridge sued a person named Penny for two separate accounts, one for £7 odd, the other for £9 odd. Mr. R. contended that it was one and the same, and nonsuited the plaintiff. Now it so happens that Messrs. V. & H. make up their bills monthly, and the accounts were rendered at different times. Turner sued the same party and another for a promissory note, and if ever stronger language could be used towards a bench, touching the contemptuous, it was his, still he was allowed to go. The next c...

THE LEICESTER VERSUS THE MERINO. To the Editor of the Argus. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 11 May 1849

THE LEICESTER versus THE MERINO.   To the Editor of the Argus.     Sir—In reference to an article which appeared in your issue of the 1st instant, headed " The Tallow Pot" in which you recommend the intro- duction of the Leicester breed of sheep, I would respectfully recall your attention to several ob-   servations, which are contained in that article, and in doing which, I must allow, (as you ob- serve) that the subject is of vital importance to the wool growers of this colony. I have no doubt, that you will allow, with me, that any attempt which has been made to cross the Leicester and the Merino, has never yielded the anticipated results, as the progeny of the ewes have invariably possessed the bad qualities     of sire and dam, viz.:—the smallness of the   Merino, and the coarse wool of the Leicester. Allowing this to be the case, the question resolves   itself into two parts...

Original Correspondence. To the Editor of the Argus. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 11 May 1849

Original Correspondence.   To the Editor of the Argus.       Mr. Editor,—Having in my last en- deavored to prove, and I trust not unsus- cessfully, that the national debt of our father land, onerous, oppressive, as appears to be, had yet some redeeming points about it, nay, that for the public in general, it was, and is, a safer invest- ment for people with limited means than the present all-absorbing speculation of railroads, I shall now proceed to demon- strate the applicability of the system to Australia. It appears to me that the chief disadvantage which every new country labours under is, the want of some sure and steady fund, in which newly arrived immigrants, the labouring classes in the colony, in short every class of the community, might invest their floating capital, with the combined advantages of having the funds so depo- sited at the command of its owners, and at same time returning some certain fixed rate of interest ...

THE MANDAMUS CASE. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 11 May 1849

THE MANDAMUS CASE. Never since the commencement of the world, has a cause been afflicted with an advocate, at once so stubborn and so stupid as the conductor of the Melbourne Herald has proved himself, and still continues to prove himself, in the notori- ous Mandamus Case. The rise, progress, and decline of this affair are thoroughly known to every newspaper reader in Port Phillip; the middle, beginning, and end are at the finger-ends of every living creature who takes the slightest interest in public affairs. It is perfectly well known that the bungled efforts of the parties who feel themselves unable to bear the ordeal of free discussion, aided, too, in no slight degree, by the clumsy enthusiasm of the Herald, have had the effect of placing an official, who ought to be highly honoured amongst us, in as unenviable a position as could well be imagined. A late issue of our own has shown that we wished to combine a triumph which was forced upon us, with the leniency of a generous anta...

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, MAY, 11, 1849. THE LICENSING BENCH. It is a generally received opinion, that under the glorious constitution of Great Britain, there can be no wrong wiihout a remedy.—The rule may obtain in more favoured portions of Her Majesty's do- minions, but the decisions of the Licens- ing Bench, on Tuesday, show that it has no foundation in truth, as regards their proceedings, for, by much the most nu- merous assemblage of Justices that has ever congregated within the walls of the Melbourne Police Office, then determined ithat a refusal of a license by the sessions     is final, and cannot be reversed in the   same sessions, either by the same magis- trates, or a greater number. We fancy their worships must look in vain, to find any authority for their deci- sion. There is nothing in law which p...

THE PORT PHILLIP AND CLARENCE RIVER COLONIZATION COMPANY. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 11 May 1849

THE PORT PHILLIP AND CLA- RENCE RIVER COLONIZATION COMPANY. We have been favoured with a perusal of the Prospectus of a new Colonization Company, bearing the above title, which the Rev. Dr. Lang is now engaged in or-   ganizing in the mother-country. The object of the Company is the pur- chase from the government of extensive tracts of arable land in the Western   plains of this Province, and at the Cla- rence River, for the purpose of re-sale in eighty acre portions, at an advance of five shillings per acre, the purchasers to be enabled to avail themselves of free passage to the Colony for themselves and families. We have not yet had time to enter suf-   ficiently minutely into the details of the scheme, to judge of its feasibility as a mercantile transaction, but of the object contemplated, the introduction of that highly desirable class of colonists, small capitalists, we cannot speak in terms of too high praise. It is the greatest bane of t...

Original Poetry. PRETTY ROSE. Pretty rose, pretty rose, I will tend thee, My cottage and love thou shalt share ; No rude winds of winter shall bend thee,   Nor ruffle thy bosom so fair, Pretty rose ! Pretty rose, pretty rose, when the first gleams Of morning shall brighten the sky, I will place thee where all the bright sunbeams Shall kiss thee as upward they fly, Pretty rose!   Pretty rose, pretty rose, when thy blossoms Shall fall, when their beauty is past, I will gather them all to my bosom ;   They ne'er shall be lost on the blast, Pretty rose !     Pretty rose, pretty rose, in the bowers No beauty is equal to thine, For thou art the queen of the flowers, And the queen of the flowers is mine. Pretty rose! April, 1849. A.R.

The Theatre.—We are very glad to perceive that Mr King is acting up to the pro- mise which was lately announced, of infusing a   little more spirit into the mode of conducting the affairs of this establishment ; and we are also glad to find that his activity and enterprise are meeting with due appreciation, and that the additional attractions he is presenting, are rewarded by houses much more numerously and respectably attended than of old.
