To the Editor of the Melbow ne Argus. Sin,-Having endeavoured, as briefly us possible, lust to show the absolute necessity io us ull, of a eoustatit supply of labour from some source; se- condly, to urge the ill effects of allowing even the dirubt necessity to drive us to look towards the prison lor our supply of servants ; thirdly, to argue upon the ample margin which is furnished by the difference in the rate of rsmuneratioii for labour here and ut home, to defruy the cost of pussuge out of a sufi'ieient number of the working classes to supply so paramount a necessity ; and fourthly, to point out the little likelihood of much being dune by the Government; I have stated that I still conceive that some scheme is practi- cable, and I forthwith hasten to suggest it.

SUPREME COURT. Thursday, December 3rd, 1846. (Before his Honor the Resident Judge.) Lawson v. Griffin. JUDGMENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 22 December 1846

SUPREME COURT. Thursday, December 3rd, 1846. (Before his Honor the Resident Judge.) Lawson v. Griffin. .JUDGMENT. I must confess that the very ingenious arguments^of Mr. Stawell in support of ihe plea caused me to feel much hesita- tion in deciding upon this demurrer ; the authorities, too, upon the subject, are by no means satisfactory, and were they otherwise, there is still the difficulty of applying them to an instrument so sin- gularly and informally drawn as the deed in which the license in question is said to be contained. It is an instrument so totally different, both in matter and form, from those which usually give rise to litigation in the English Courts, that J I have felt myself quite at a loss in at- tempting to put any legal construction uponitscontents. It is not a mortgage of land, nor an assignment of chattels, nor a warrant of attorney, for securing a debt, and yet there is apparently an in- tention to give it the effect of all three. In the first' place, there is...

To the Editor of the Melbourne Argus. [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 22 December 1846

To the Editor of the Melbourne Argus. Sir,-I perceive that the Papists in Melbourne, who call themselves the St. Patrick's Society, are levying contribu- tions upon the inhabitants of Port Phil- lip, on the ground of the great things they have done or are going to do in the way of education. Now, I think it will be allowed hy any one well acquainted with the Melbour nians, that there is more of generosity than of judgment among us, and the use of the word "education," is rather "a knowing dodge" on the part of the pro- moter of the scheme, for I dare say many a generous unthinking fellow will put his hand in his pocket, and give some" thing towards it without even asking the question, what is the kind and nature of the education to be given '£ On such an important matter how- ever, as education, that question is of the highest importance, for if it should so happen that the teaching of Romish tenets which were exploded and cast aside, as vile and bad, at the reformation of 300 years...
