THE SQUATTING QUESTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 29 December 1846

THE SQUATTING QUESTION. 'We gave in our last number the Act for .the Regulation of the Waste Lands of the Colony, as it has passed the British Par- liament, and we give to-day the debate in the House of Commons on the second reading of the Bill. It will be observed that the Hon, F. Scott, the Parliamentary Agent for the Colony, says trie Bill "enables the Go- vernment to grant leases of land beyond the boundaries of location, that it concedes repewal of the lease to the same occupier .while the land is unsold, that it bestows the righr of pre-emption without compe- tition when the land is sold." Now the honorable gentleman is either reckoning without his host, or the Bill has been '.materially modified in committee, ex- cepting the mere giving of " fixity of tenure" for fourteen years, we can find none of the other " merits" the honorable member speaks of, the ''renewal of the lease" not being referred to in any shape, and there being nothing in the measure directly bestowing " the ...

LATEST FROM SYDNEY. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] 22nd December, 1846. [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 29 December 1846

LATEST FROM SYDNEY. [from our own correspondent.] 22»d December, 1846. There would not have been anything of very great interest to report by this post but for an extraordinary scene which took place in the Supreme Court this morning. I may mention that the meet- ing of the operatives in opposition to the renewal of transportation, was held on the Race Course, in the vicinity of the Supreme Court House, and the proceed- ings, which, however, are unimportant from the nature of the assemblage, which was neither numerous 'nor respectable, (this is not on account of any feeling fa- vorable to transportation, but rather owing to the character of the parties who assembled. The Mayor was in the chair, but he was the only civic dignitary even who took part in the proceedings,) were going on, wlien intimation -was given of what had occurred in the Supreme Court. Mr. Windeyer and Mr. Darvall, bar- risters, were engaged on opposite sides iu a cause ; Mr. Windeyer was replying on the evidence f...

DR. LEICHHARDT'S TOUR. [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 29 December 1846

DR. LEICHHARDT'S TOUR. We have been favoured with the follow- ing second letter from Mr. Bunce, the botanist attached to Dr. Leichhardt's pre- sent tour of discovery : Gowrie, Darling Downs, 18th November, 1846. My dear C- -,- I wrote to you last week as I was fearful I should have no other opportu- nity, I find however, that another letter is neces- sary, inasmuch as the Doctor has made some alterations in our arrangements, namely, we take but 150 sheep, instead of 400 ; 50 bullocks, and not 100. We have also made an addition of one person to our party, making nine, instead of eight people. Mr. Mann has just arrived with the dray containing our things, together with another mule, so that we have sixteen now. We shall leave civilization from this place in five days at the farthest. It is scarcely possible we shall accomplish the expedition in less than two years and a-half. I do not think we shall feel the want of tobacco as we have had a good supply given us by the settlers, and we...

To the Editor of the Melbourne Argus. [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 29 December 1846

To the Editor of the Melbourne Argus. Sir-The greedy hawks who would inundate the Colony with the scourings of the English jiils, in order to have labour a little cheaper, are in the habit of telling us that the absorption of labour on the English Railroads renders the re- sumption of immigration impracticable. I should like to know what such babblers will say to the following paragraph, which appears in the Lon- don Atlas of 8th August : " On Wednesday afternoon the Baronia, Dutch steam ship, from Rotterdam, carne into the river with 340 German emigrants, who intend to emigrate to the United States. They are an in- stalment of the 80,000 emigrating from the Ger- man States during the present year. Yesterday morning they proceeded hy a special train from London to Liverpool, for the purpose of embark- ing on board an American ship hound to New York." Surely German immigration would bo prefer- able to the importation of English thieves I I am, &c. BOZ.

AUSTRALIAN WASTE LANDS. HOUSE OF LORDS, AUGUST 14. [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 29 December 1846

AUSTRALIAN WASTE LANDS. House of Lords, August 14. Earl Grey, in moving the second read- ing of the Waste Lands AusUalia Bill, said that the object was much the same as the Bill »vhich had been introduced by I his noble friend (Lord Lyttleton) when ] Under Secretary for the Colonies, and | was intended to provide facilities for the occupation of lands, for the purposes ef grazing, a subject of considerable impor- tance in the present state of these colonies. Some yecrs ago the land was granted to individuals, and it was found impossible, even with the greatest care, to prevent large tracts from falling into the hands of persons who made no proper use of them, and thus drove the bona fide settlers to a great distance, obstructed improvement, and affected injuriously the interests of the colony. Fifteen years ago his noble friend (the Earl of Ripon) changed the method of disposing of land by abolishing the system of grant, and adopting the system of sale. The pi ice was originally 5s....

THE WASTE LANDS OF AUSTRALIA. (From the Daily News August 17th.) [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 29 December 1846

THE WASTE LANDS OF AUSTRALIA. (Prom, the Daily News August llth.) The difficulty of introducing an equitable and satisfactory system for the disposal of wastelands in New South Wales is as great as the necessity j of the immediate establishment of sucha system 'is urgent. New South AYales is not, like South Australia when the land regulations for that set- tlement were prepared, a tabula rasa. Nume- rous flocks and herds of great value are 6pread over its surface in all directions. Their owners have been compelled, bv the arbitrary and often crotchety regulations of former times, to occupy [ lands on a precarious tenure. Of half-a-dozen experimental modes ofland disposal, tried at dif- ferent times, each has left sorre trace of its exist- ence, Tendering more complicated the economical and social relations of the community. Under I these circumstances, every attempt of Government | to establish a sound system ought to be judged with leniency and candour, provided it is char- I acter...

Domestic Intelligence. Grand Cricket Match - On Saturday the match at cricket between two elevens   of the Melbourne and Melbourne Trades- men's Union Club, came off upon the ground on the south side of the Yarra. During the time this match had been on the tapis opinions had been m.ist conflict- ing as to the respective merits of the con- tending parties, it being urged that though the Melbourne eleven were better in the field, yet that the eleven of the Trades Union had the superiority in batting ; the result, however, proved that in both par- ticulars the eleven of the Trades Union excelled, asaftera sharp contest they were declared the victors by one notch, and three wickets to go down. During the play the Trades Union succeeded upon two occasions in obtaining live runs from one hit. Every thing went off in the most satisfactory manner, the Melbourne Club having, through their purveyor, Mr. Passmore, provided an excellent enter- tainment, at which the Trades Union el...
