THE ELECTRIC TELEGRAPH. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 22 May 1849

THE ELECTRIC TELEGRAPH. I heard an old and a new joke cut upon the subject of the electric telegraph t'other morning. The old one was that it was a " shocking" affair ; but the new one, uttered by a young lady, pleased me better. She said "I don't like the idea of intelligence being communicated by the agency of sparks. Sparks have no right to divulge secrets. The next thing they will do, will be to kiss and tell."—Punch.

PHONETIC SPELLING. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 22 May 1849

PHONETIC SPELLING.   The remedy which is proposed for the state of things resulting from the extra- ordinary confusion into which our spell- ing has fallen, from the caprice or igno- rance of those who first reduced it to writing, and the wilfulness of modern scribes, is to have an alphabet of such a nature, that every letter in it shall have one definite signification, and shall al- ways express the same sound under the same circumstances. The elements which have been chosen for alphabetical repre- sentation, are the sounds expressed by the italic letters in the words eel, ale alms, all, ope, food ; Ill, Ell, Am, ¿Hv/f Up, foot ; isie, oil, owl, mule ; Yea, Way, Hay; Pea, Bee, Toe, Doe, chest, Just, Coat, Goat; Fie, Vie, thigh, thy, Seal, Zeal, vicious, vision ; Lull, Rare ; Maa Nun, sing. Those who take the trouble to separate these sounds which they con- tain, will see the philosophical order which prevails in the above arrangement. This has been adopted as the order...

HAND-BOOK FOR BEGGARS. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 22 May 1849

HAND-BOOK FOR BEGGARS. Under this attractive title a very use- ful little work has just been published by the Mendicity Society. It will afford a very complete guide to those who get their living in the streets—in other words to those sensible individuals who think that what is worth having is worth asking for. The Man at the Corner, who has had the opportunity of comparing the instructions given in the book with the habitual practice of those for whom it is intended, has much pleasure in promoting its popularity by a few extracts, and the beggar who cannot take a hint from them, must be a very rum beggar in- deed. OF STREETS. Never select a crowded thoroughfare. The people there are engaged in business and have no leisure. You will be pushed out of the way, and perhaps taken up for being in it ; besides in a crowd you have no hope of outfacing the timid pas- senger, who will bury himself among his companions and elude you. On the other hand, never select too solitary a district ; f...

Original Correspondence. To the Editor of the Argus. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 22 May 1849

Original Correspondence. To the Editor of the Argus. Sir,—In your paper of 1st May, appeared an article headed "The Tallow Pot," in which you evidently invite dis- cussion upon a subject of most vital importance to the community, and one, which has been too much neglected. While much praise is due to you, and while I give you credit for your intention to benefit the public, I cannot but think that such an article, proceeding from such authority, is calculated to do serious mischief to the parties you wish to benefit. From a perusal of the article in ques- tion, the following remarks have occurred to me, which I forward to you, trusting that you may find them worthy a place in your widely circulated paper, and some small contribution to the general stock of knowledge on the subject. From the fact that a flock of Mr. W. J. T. Clark's wethers, lately melted, gave a return of 40lbs of tallow each, you come to the conclusion that in many localities the new Leicester sheep are the most pr...

Original Correspondence. To the Editor of the Argus. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 22 May 1849

Original Correspondence. To the Editor of the Argus. Sir,—Having read a series of articles in the Melbourne Morning Herald entitled "TheBearded Prophet," I was induced from curiosity to go and hear him last Sunday afternoon. At 3 o'clock   the preacher mounted a stump, he was a reputable looking man, the beard excepted, and dressed like a Quaker, he stated that the falsehoods trim   about him in the papers would not hinder him from preaching the Gospel, and then commenced his service by giving out and singing a hymn; he then took off his hat and prayed, commencing with the Lord's Prayer, read the first chapter of Ala ki   Gospel, and preached from the 16th and 17th verses of the 1st chapter of the Epistle to the Romans, " For I am not ashamed of the Ooipt of Christ, &c . The sermon was chiefly com- posed of quotations from Scripture to prove cer- tain points; he then finished by prayer. I paid particular attention to all that was said, ...

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, 22, 1849. THE ADMINISTRATION OF JUSTICE. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 22 May 1849

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, 22, 1849.   THE ADMINISTRATION OF JUSTICE. The practice indulged in by certain of our contemporaries of cheering on the blood-bounds of the law to the injury of a rival journal, has never failed to excite our bitter indignation, and we would not, therefore, take a step which may be considered as giving indication of such a despicable feeling, but that we consider it necessary to draw attention to the seeming partiality in the administration of justice, which is visible in the treat- ment of the Press of the Province by the Supreme Court. During the late civil session of the Supreme Court, his Honor the Resident Judge, in the exercise of the powers vested in him by law issued an order prohibiting the publication of the evi- dence given in a case pending before the court, until the case was c...

MISCELLANEOUS. A Sanitary Movement.—Lady—"Dear me, Count, you don't look well to-day." Count—" Oh, I have done vare foolish ting—vare foolish ting—I have wash my neck."—The Puppet Show. Mr. Elihu Burritt's Description of a Locomotive Steam Engine.—" I love to see one of these huge creatures, with sinews of brass and muscles of iron, strut forth from his smoky stable, and saluting the long train of cars with a dozen sono- rous puffs from his iron nostrils, fall back gently into his harness. There he stands, champing and foaming upon the iron track, his great heart a furnace of glow- ing coals; his lymphatic blood is boiling in his veins ; the strength of a thousand   horse is nerving his sinews; he pants to   be gone. He would drag St. Peter's across the desert of Sahara, if he could be fairly hitched to it ; but there is a little sober-eyed, tobacco-chewing man in the saddle, who holds him in with one finger, and can take away his breath in a moment, should...

May this year noo thats comin' on, Shine brighter than it ever shone, An' may you nature's dress aye don, In a' your jingle, An' make guid sangs for folk to con, Beside the ingle. May you see monie mair birthdays, An' may you study nature's ways, May fickle fortune's brightest rays, Shine you upon ; An' may you ne'er forget to Praise, The God aboon. But stop ! I am na gaun to teach, Nor yet a sermon for to preach. If I say mair I'll make a breach, 'Tween you an' me; An' that 'twould take a' clever leech,...
