The Argus. &nbsp; EXTRAORDINARY. 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." MONDAY, MAY, 21, 1849. WOOL UP—CHEERING NEWS. We have very great satisfaction in an- nouncing to our readers that the February wool-sales, which commenced on the 7th February, were marked both by a greatly increased demand, and a very considerable rise in price. In the City &nbsp; article of the Times of the 8th February, we find the following notice of the first day's sale :— " The periodical colonial wool sales &nbsp; commenced this afternoon, and the at- tendance of buyers was unprecedently &nbsp; numerous. Biddings, however, were &nbsp; scarcely so spirited as on former occa- &nbsp; sions, although great firmness was mani- &nbsp; fested, and an average advance is consi- &nbsp; dered to have been realised of at least &nbsp; 2d. per lb., the improvemen...

ENGLISH NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 21 May 1849
ENGLISH NEWS. The Ann Miln, arrived on Saturday, brings us English intelligence to the 9th Feb. inclusive. Parliament was opened with the usual formalities by the Queen, in person, on the 1st Feb. The speech from the throne was as follows:— &nbsp; Mv Lords and Gentlemen, The period being arrived at which the business of Parliament is usually resumed, I have called you together for the discharge of your important duties. It is satisfactory to me to be enabled to state that, both in the north and in the south of Europe, the contending parties have consented to a sus- pension of arms, for the purpose of negotiating terms of peace. The hostilities carried on in the Island of Sicily were attended with circumstances so revolting, that the British and French Admirals were im- &nbsp; pelled by motives of humanity to interpose, and to stop the further effusion of blood. I have availed myself of the interval thus obtained &nbsp; to propose, in conjunction with France, ...

JUSTICE AND GENEROSITY. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 22 May 1849
JUSTICE AND GENEROSITY. Our last issue announced the sailing of the Stag for London, numbering amongst her precious freight, no less a personage than Major St. John, who with his family, is seeking more congenial shores. It is stated upon good authority, that previous to his departure, he was pre- sented with the proceeds of a subscrip- tion raised amongst our magnates, to the amount of several hundred pounds. Mr. Fawkner's expenses in the late notorious libel action, are unpaid to this day. This is Port Phillip justice and generosity ; thus it is that she rewards her public servants, and punishes her criminals ! By these means she proves her worthiness for separation, her claims to free institutions and independent action, her fitness for her sole control ! Shame ! shame ! ! shame ! ! !
THE TALLOW POT. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 22 May 1849
THE TALLOW POT. &nbsp; In venturing upon a few remarks under this heading, in a recent number, we stated our impression, that our views would be somewhat unpopular amongst our country friends. It is a matter of no surprise, therefore, to find ourselves at issue with the settlers upon the sub- ject. But we scarcely think we are re- ceiving fair play at their hands, for they first taunt us with want of practical knowledge on the subject, as if such a want were at all surprising among those whose fingers are more subject to stains from printer's ink, than from corrosive sublimate, or butyr of antimony ; and they then presume upon our implied ig- norance, to crush us with statements altogether too heavy for digestion. We regret to state that we are not yet con- verted, and we shall have more to say upon the subject as soon as our space will admit of its adequate treatment.

Commercial Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 22 May 1849
Commercial Intelligence. The subjoined extract from the circular of &nbsp; Messrs. T. J. and T. Powell relates to a point in connexion with the hide trade of some importance to landed proprietors :— &nbsp; "Not any article connected with leather has &nbsp; so much advanced in value as oak bark. At the period of the last bark harvest, May and June, much bark was sold at unprecedentedly low prices, £3 to £3 10s per ton in the woods. It was believed that there would be a large fall of timber throughout the country, and this impres- sion was, no doubt, heightened by the actual and unusally large fall of oak trees in Buckinghamshire, and some other counties. This prospective abund- ance was, however, counterbalanced by &nbsp; the fact of much timber having been felled in winter, when the bark is sacrificed. Al- though this practice was then known, it was not believed to have been adopted to a great extent, &nbsp; but the result proves that the supp...
STOCK MARKET. SALES EFFECTED DURING THE PAST WEEK BY MESSRS BEAR AND SON. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 22 May 1849
STOCK MARKET. Sales effected during the past week by Messrs BEAR AND SON.

Store Cattle sell at from 12s to 15s ; for mixed herds there are a few purchasers in the market. Working bullocks sell at low rates; teams in good condition, from £6 to £3 per pair; inferior ditto, from £4 to £5 per pair. Sheep and stations are still much in demand, a small station in the settled districts, with about 2,600 sheep, sold at auction at 6s per head—the station is not considered good. &nbsp; Cattle and fattening stations are in demand ; the supply of fat wethers in the market this week &nbsp; has been large, one good lot sold at 8s 6d per head, or fully 1½d per lb; several lots arrived in low condition, and were sold as store wethers at from 4s to 4s 6d each.
