PROGRESS OF DISCOVERY. [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 15 December 1846

PROGRESS OF DISCOVERY. BY our last night's Express we have Sir T. L. Mitchell's despatches, giving the report of the progress made by the expe- dition under his command in exploring the overland route to Port Essington. These documents are too voluminous to admit of their publication in our present number, and we have not had time to peruse them sufficiently attentively to judge of the importance of the discove- ries Sir Thomas has made. The'jmaiu object of Sir T L. Mitchell's expedition (after he heard of Dr. Leich hardt's success, and befoie it too he says) was to keep inland and fall in with the north-west division of the waters, to be the I first to see the interior country and the waters properly belonging to the basin of Carpentaria, and in that he says he has succeeded beyond his most sanguine ex- pectations, having discovered a splendid country in Central Australia, better wa- tered than any other portion of Colony, and possessing a noble river, which though he could not fol...

To the Editor of the Melbourne Argus. [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 15 December 1846

To the Editor of the Melbourne Argus. SIR,-On my arrival in town this day from Geelong, I was surprised on a paragraph of yours and some of your contemporaries being pointed out to roe,purporting to be a case in the Police ofiic - -.tendingthe removal of broken metal from the banks of the Yarr«, and which was ," tended for the completion of the approaX.t the wharf for the performance of which I had contracted with Government. I would not thus intrude upon you, noroa the public, but for the remark winch Canton Cole thought fit to make ,u open SÄ was-tlut he regretted that the contractor could not be placed in :he dock on account of their selling the metal which was intended for the wharf, and which should have been laid there six months since. What right he had to make such a remark I cannot understand, as in the perlormance of Go- vernment work I do not recognise the right that any ono except the duly constituted officer has to dictate either when or how that work should be performe...

THE FALLEN CROSS AND THE NEW CHURCH. To the Editor of the Melbourne Argus. [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 15 December 1846

THE FALLEN CROSS AtVD THE NEW CHURCH. To the Editor of the Melbourne Argits. Sin-lo my opinion some apology is due for intruding Theological suojects on the columns of a public journal, the isms have little interest for the mass of readers. But my excuse is, that the party whose eucioachments I would check, is not merely ¡eligious but political ; thcenunciators of civil despotism-the contemners of the right of private judgment; atid the slavish promulgators of such doctrines as the divine right ol kings - 1 hese mgiedients anfully compounded with the other vices of Rome, form the clements of that racy, but unsubstantial dish culled Puseyism. Or you may tompare this treason on our church, to it threefold siloing scale, gliding easily through the separate stages of high Churchism und Trac ttmnism, and ending ni Popery. For uccoi ding to the eloquent and Hex. taber, who lately with nine oilier*, exchanged pulpits in the Chun li of England, for those of Rome. '' Submission to tht Roman ...

To the Editor of the Melbourne Argus. \ Sir-Being accustomed to advertise in j-our paper, and wishing to do .so in some one or more of the other newspapers, save und except, those of very limited circulation-and having ah' idea that one at least is in a state of atrophy, (judging from the circumstance of my never see- ing it in Melbourne,,) and conceiving that you are pretty well informed in such matters, I should like to know as nearly as possible the number of subscribers lo each, that the public may select the most preferable means of advertising. By so doing you will oblige A SUBSCRIBER. Dec. 10, . . [If we were to comply with our correspond- ent's request, and say the Gazette has barely 200 subscribers, and the Patriot not a great many more, we would be in slap-bang for a libel action.
