INSOLVENT COURT. Thursday, May 17th, 1849. (Before R. W. Pohlman, Esq., Commissioner.) [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 18 May 1849
INSOLVENT COURT. &nbsp; &nbsp; Thursday, May 17th, 1849. &nbsp; (Before R. W. Pohlman, Esq., Commissioner.) &nbsp; &nbsp; In re Charles Manton.—Mr Thurlow, Solicitor, appeared on behalf of insolvent for a certificate of discharge. He did not think it necessary to reca- pitulate all the facts of the case, as they were already known to his Worship; there was no- thing to prevent his client obtaining the certi- ficate. The Commissioner said no doubt rested on his mind that the insolvent was entitled to the cer- tificate, and therefore granted Mr. Thurlow's application.
Domestic Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 18 May 1849
Domestic Intelligence. Police Office. — On Wednesday morning the list exhibited the name of only one drunkard, who did not appear. The paucity of business attracted but few spectators, but of such a class that it was thought proper to order them out of court. Mr. Belcher said there was not a Magistrates' Court or Police Office in England where such people were allowed to congregate ; they were generally the associates of thieves, and justice was sometimes defeated by their attending the preliminary examination of a " pal," and communicating what transpired. Mr. Hull, who presided, expressed his surprise at the number of idlers who assemble at the office, and particularly mentioned a boy whom he had seen there five consecutive Wednesdays. Mr. Hull said the practice at Bow-street was not to admit persons unless on business, or of respectable appearance.—Fallon, the keeper of the Market Square watch house, obtained a warrant for the appre- hension of a man on a charge of assault. He st...
MR. MACARTHUR'S LETTER. Camden, 4th May, 1849. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 18 May 1849
MR. MACARTHURS LETTER. Camden, 4th May, 1849. My dear Fyans—It has been intimated to me, that some of my friends at Port &nbsp; Phillip are desirous that I should make known to the electors, generally, my opi- nions upon some of the subjects which appear to excite the greatest public in- terest in the Southern Districts. &nbsp; I comply with their wishes the more readily, because I am sure you will per- mit me to state them in the form of a letter to you, which perhaps you will be good enough to make public in any manner which may seem most advisable. I con- fess, that I should hesitate to send a state- ment of them direct from hence, to any of the Port Phillip newspapers, lest by such a step I might seem to be endea- vouring to bring myself, or my opinions, under public notice without sufficient ***. The question of separation Ï apprehend to be the one which is paramount in the estimation of the inhabitants of Port Phillip. If it be so earnestly desired, as it would...
To the Editor of the Argus. THE LEICESTER VERSUS THE MERINO. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 18 May 1849
To the Editor of the Argus. &nbsp; &nbsp; THE LEICESTER versus THE MERINO. Sir,—I proceed to resume my remarks &nbsp; &nbsp; on the subject of your recommending the introduction of the Leicester breed of sheep. In continuation of my observations with regard to the profitableness of intro- ducing the Leicesters, I would remark that the same expense which keeps a flock of Leicesters until they are fit for the boiling pot, will keep the same quantity of Merinos twelve or eighteen months longer. This will be easily calculated, if you bear in mind that double the number of the Merinos may be run in a flock. On this assumption, with the other reasons mentioned in my last, I arrive at the conclusion, that better results may be obtained from the Merinos than the Leicesters. It is also worthy of remark, that not- withstanding the superiority of the cli- mate of this colony for gendering preco- city in almost every description of animals, the rule does not hold...

Domestic Intelligence. The Legislative Council.—Tuesday was the day appointed for the opening of the Legislative Council, swearing in members and electing the speaker, and yet notwithstanding all the vauntings of the so-called bona fide electionists, there would not be a Port Phillip representative at his port, unless indeed, Mr William Macarthur, who is about as much a real representative of this province as he is of New Zealand. Mr. Lachlan M'Kinnon, and Dr. Dickson, we understand proceed to Sydney by the Shamrock. &nbsp; Masonic.—Brother Joseph Long Innes, Esq., Commissioner of Police for the Mid- dle District of the Colony, was, on Thursday week installed in office as Provincial Grand Master of the Ancient and Honorable Fraternity of Free and Accepted Masons in Now South &nbsp; Wales, under the constitution of the Grand Lodge of England. &nbsp; " The Meeting of the Bulls."— We are somewhat mortified to find that a brief Editorial note placed a little too ...

THE ELECTORAL FRANCHISE. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 18 May 1849
THE ELECTORAL FRANCHISE. Somebody, we forget who, has very justly remarked that the worst feature of ignorance, is the insuperable difficulty of making the ignorant conscious of the fact of their own ignorance. Our con- temporary the Daily News affords an apt illustration of the justice of the remark, for on the very eve of a defeat at the hands of such a thorough simpleton as Mr. Thomas M'Combie, we find him disputing "right good law " with Mr. Alderman Kerr, and fancying himself detecting blunders in the proceedings of the City Revision Courts, and, even after such a humiliating exposure we find the wiseacre still fancying himself in the right, and everybody else in the wrong. The subject which has drawn our con- temporary forth on the present occasion, is the fancied discovery that an eighteen months possession or occupation of his qualification, is necessary to entitle a claimant to the electoral franchise. The Constitutional Act (5th and 6th Victoria, cap. 76) enacts " that no ...
OUR REPRESENTATIVES. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 18 May 1849
OUR REPRESENTATIVES. When we announced the election of Mr. William Macarthur, to the very en- viable position of a representative of a most insignificant portion of a most un- thankful constituency, we expressed our doubt whether he would avail himself of a seat conferred upon him under such &nbsp; ungracious circumstances. He appears to have decided differently to what we expected, and differently to what would have been anticipated from any high- minded man ; and throwing into the back-ground the whole circumstances of his somewhat humiliating election, he appears seriously to consider himself a Port Phillip representative. The expo- sition of his opinions, wisely addressed to his chief patron instead of his constitu- ents, appears in our fourth page, and we trust that it will prove satisfactory to his three supporters in this neighbourhood. But the game is still to be kept up; &nbsp; and thoroughly contemptible as the &nbsp; whole proceedings have long bee...

ENGLISH NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 18 May 1849
ENGLISH NEWS. Since our last issue, we have managed to glean a few items of interesting intel- ligence from the January papers, received by the recent arrivals. Late last night, &nbsp; also, through the polite attention of our Launceston contemporary, the Examiner, we were favoured with slips, forwarded by the Shamrock, containing an interest- ing precis of English intelligence to the beginning of February, received there, via the Mauritius. The crowded state of our columns does not admit of our availing ourselves of our contemporary's kindness to so full an extent as we could have wished; but we have made as much use as possible of the opportunity, in compiling the following summary:— &nbsp; Parliament met on the 1st February. The Queen and Royal Family were in good health. Her Majesty was staying at Windsor. Rumours of ministerial purposes and political projects were rife, but nothing more remarkable than Mr Cobden's union with the Finance Reformers, and the resusc...

Select Poetry. THE SEVEN AGES OF THE REPUBLIC. France is a stage, [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 18 May 1849
Select Poetry. THE SEVEN AGES OF THE REPUBLIC. — France is a stage, &nbsp; And all her heroes little more than players. Her Kings their exits have, and entrances And the Republic runs its round of parts. Its acts being seven ages. First, Young France, Emeuting and plotting, e'en in the nurse's arms; &nbsp; Then ouvriers out of work, casquette on head, And frowning hairy face going, in faith, To Louis Blanc to school. then Lamartine, Spouting away, writing a score of sonnets Unto Dame Liberty's eyebrow ; then Mobile, Clapped in strange clothes, and bearding bar- ricades, Zealous against old friends in sudden quarrel, Taking a sight at death and devastation E'en in the cannon's mouth : then Cavaignac, In tower despotic and a state of seige, With frown severe, and beard of Algiers cut, O'er riding Law, with a soldier's insolence— &nbsp; And so he plays his part. The sixth age shows Poor Liberty, with Constitution weak, Halting 'twixt Anarchy and Despotism. Her y...

BIRTH. | At Avoca, near Melbourne, on the 17th current, Mrs. William M. Bell, of a son. We are unwilling to decline the insertion of the second letter from Mr. Nash, as we would always rather afford a hearing to an opponent ; but we do not see any good end that its publi- cation could answer, consisting as it does merely of a tissue of taunts against the modest signature of an opponent.
