Original Poetry. THE MEETING OF THE BULLS. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 15 May 1849
Original Poetry. &nbsp; THE MEETING OF THE BULLS. A herd of bulls, in imitation Of men, the lords of the creation, Assembled on an April night, To satisfy their appetite ; And lest they should run short of fare, Said none but bulls should enter there. The hay was fresh, the racks were full, And every stall received a bull. Their purpose was their maws to gorge, In Memory of one Saint George, And empty many a flowing flagon, Because this Geordie killed a dragon ; Though when or how the dragon fell, No bull in all the herd could tell ; Not one amongst them could describe, The semblance of the dragon tribe, Or tell where on this earthly round, Another dragon might be found. But other causes of complaint, Besides the dragon or the saint, Had summoned all the troop to meet, And bellow loud, and drink and eat. The dinner ended as it should, The bulls began to chew their cud; When in that portion of the stable, Selected for the chair-bull's table, &nbsp; A black and yellow ...

Domestic Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 15 May 1849
Domestic Intelligence. &nbsp; Louttit Bay Coal— The Corio &nbsp; Chronicle states that Mr. F. Hitchins safely re- turned from his expedition to Louttit Bay, on Friday afternoon, bringigg with him about twenty pounds of coal, which he knocked off from the "crop". Our contemporary says "From Mr. H 's description of the position of the coal field, which is upon one edge of the basin, and crops to grass, to the extent of at least half a mile, no- thing could be more admirably situated for carry- ing on the mining operations. The " crop" is on &nbsp; the beach, dipping in a gradual underlay inland, to the extent of about a quarter of a mile, when there is appearance of it being crossed by a " fault," throwing the coal into high table land." &nbsp; The coal is only four and a half miles from &nbsp; Louttit Buy, which is a good port of shipment, but the Corio Chronicle on the true " nothing like leather" principle, has found out that the &nbs...

SYDNEY. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 15 May 1849
SYDNEY. &nbsp; (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) Sydney is still bare of'news. The only prevailing topic of discussion is the approaching session of the Legisla- tive 'Council, which will commence on Tuesday next. There is likely to be a sharp contest for the Speakership. The candidates, as far as I can learn, are Dr. Nicholson, (the late Speaker) Mr. Hamilton, and Mr. Cowper. Which of these three will succeed it is most diffi- cult to get at, but I am inclined to think that the Doctor has the best chance ; the memory of the very excellent dinners which he was in the habit of giving, will stand him in good stead with the mem- bers. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; It is currently reported, that a con- test upon the transportation question may be looked for on the very first working day of the session, in a debate upon the Address to the Governor, which usually follows His Excellency's speech. There is little doubt, however, that the &...
THE LIBEL RACKET. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 15 May 1849
THE LIBEL RACKET. Few things have tended to bring this district into greater odium in the sur- rounding colonies, than our everlasting recurrence to the libel law. The abominably litigious disposition which prevails amongst many of us, never takes so offensive or so mischievous a shape as this, and it is difficult to trace the full effects of the evil. Our public men, if honest and consistent, are afraid to speak out plainly, and the very numerous body of our evil-doers are encouraged in their practises, by the knowledge of the terror which some recent example may have produced. Such is the debasing effect upon the public mind, that the question, " Is it true ?" sinks into insignificance in the universal cry of " Is it a libel ?" Our very children prattle of the libel law, our babes and sucklings become learned in scandalum magnatum, Our journals are turned over, not for information, not for news, not for the purpose of watching the tides of public opinion, but to hunt out libels, t...

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." TUESDAY, MAY, 15, 1849. ENGLISH NEWS. By the arrivals yesterday, we received English intelligence up to 29th January, but our files are not continuous, all the papers for the earlier part of the month being, most probably, on board one of the vessels hourly expected, and those which have come being very barren of intelligence. The only intelligence of moment, that has attracted our attention, is, the changes in the Admiralty, occasioned by the death of Lord Auckland. The Board is now composed of the Right Hon. Sir Francis Thornhill Baring, Bart.; Rear Admiral James Whitley Deans Dundas, C. B.; Maurice Frederick Fitzhardinge Berkley, Esq., C. B.; Lord John Hay, C. B.; the Hon. Wm. Francis Cowper, and Alexander Milne, Esq. The Pope was still at Gaeta, and no prospect whatever of his restoration to his dominions ; in fact his former sub- jects seem ...
