TO THE SQUATTERS OF PORT PHILLIP. [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 1 January 1847

TO THE SQUATTERS OF PORT PHILLIP. Gentlemen,-Allow me to call your attention to a matter of great importance to your interests, and the colony at large: It is admitted that the price of wool has declined in the English market, about four pence per pound, and the reasons given for this large depreciation are stated to be, .' the general stagnation of trade caused by the uncertainty of go- vernment measurers" and so forth ; in fact the only reasons given by the mer- chant ship owners of Britain and their agents here are accidents over which Ave have no control. We must recollect however that these parties have interests directly antagonistic to ours ;-the mer- chant is not likely to suggest anything tending to diminish his freight, nor his agent here to adopt plans which lessen his commissions. Such being the case, it is highly necessary that you should enquire into the facts for yourselves, and that you may be induced to do so individually, I beg to* offer for your consideratson the ...

To the Editor of the Melbourne Argus. [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 1 January 1847

To the Editor of the Melbourne Argus. Sir-I perceive that a public meeting Avas to be held in Sydney on the 22nd past, " against the renewal of transpor- tation. The result of this meeting will be known here in a few days, and it is most earnestly to be desired that some demon- stration should be made by the citizens of Melbourne upon this vital subject. There are many settlers now in town, and as it is that class of colonists who are almost exclusively the advocates of Convict La- bour m this District, they will have an opportunity of expressing their sentiments and arguing the question in public. I am, Sir, Your obedient, servant, A Burgess. Melbourne, Dec. 29th, 1846.

A SCENE IN THE SUPREME COURT. (From the Sydney M. Herald, Dec. 23.) [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 1 January 1847

A SCENE IN THE SUPREME COURT. (From the Sydney M. Ileiald, Dec. 23.1 A most disgraceful scene took place yesterday in the Supreme Court, between two members of the Sydney Bar. Tue lie was given, and was followed by a blow, which would possibly have brought on a pitched battle, had it not been for the interference of one of the officers of the court, who placed himself between the belligerents. The two gentlemen in question, Mr. Windeyer and Mr. Darvall, were encaged on oppositesides in an unimportant action for debt, when the scene occurred which is correctly given below. This took place during the time that Mr. Win- deyer was replying, and the moment he had concluded the Chief Justice, who appeared greatly shocked by so suddeSjaud indecent nu outbreak, at once committed them both to the custody of the Sheriff, until he should have time to consult with the other Judges as to what was to be done with them-declaring at the time that he was de- termined, as far as lay in his power, to ...

HOUSE OF COMMONS. 14th August, 1846. THE''COLONIES. j\Iii. Hume observed he had some days ago pre- sented a petition from the colony of Van Die men's Lund in favour of having a representative government, and he had also moved for a return of similar claims made by other colonies. Ten colonies had sent applications for representative governments, and he was strongly impressed with the belief that it was not only the intention of the Government, but that it was also the in- terest of the nation at large, that these applica- tions should be conceded as soon as possible. The noble lord at the head of the Government, stated a few nights ago in a speech in that house that it was his opinion that every colony should embrace within it us speedily as possible the public and social institutions of this country, lie therefore concluded from the noble lord's statement that all that was necessary was to point out that theseprivileges could be grunted with safety. In VarTDiemen's Land there were ...

To the Editor of the Melbourne Argus. ' »Mr. Editor,-Allow me now to proceed in demonstrating, as I have promised, by incontrovertible facts, to prove the impo- licy, the iniquity, of assuming the mea- sures for importation of Felon Labour, as recommended by the Report of the Committee of the Legislative Assembly. I may here premise, that in considering the Land Fund in Australia, as legiti- mately beyond the controul of the Colo- nial Parliament, and avowing such to he my opinion, I expose myself to the hosti- lity of my fellow citizens, who view the claims of the home government to it as ?subversive of the unalienahle rights of the colony, and was there a body in New South Wales, sufficiently honest to wield such a power for the real,benefit of the country, far would 1 be from saying nay, hut we are indeed very differently situated, Ave are so divided amongst ourselves, that I cannot discern the most distant chance of any party rising amongst us for many, many years to come, suffi...

ARE WE TO BE FELONIZED? [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 1 January 1847

ARE WE TO BE FELONIZED? There was a time when at our public meetings, in the columns of our local journals, and in our every-day inter- course with each other, it was the pride and boast of the denizens of Australia Felix, that ours was a free settlement, clear of the stain of convict origin, and kept pure of felony by the express com- mand of the Secretary of State, and then it was some consolation to us, when our Sydney oppressors were sweeping our Treasury with ruthless hands, to taunt our remorseless robbers with the foul stain of convictism, which then attached to their character. But how stand matters now? The Home Government are anxious for the renewal of transportation to New South Wales, and some cozening knave thas told the Secretary of State that the people of Port Phillip are stretch- ing out their arms in very eagerness to re- ceive the nauseous mess. And how are the people of Port Phillip acting with refer- ence to this foul calumny ? What have they done to give the li...
