SYDNEY MARKETS. May 18. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 25 May 1849
SYDNEY MARKETS. May lil. Business has been somewhat brisker during the past week, and the arrivals from England have &nbsp; considerably relieved the markets, more especially in the articles of ale and porter, the best brands of which were totally wanting. The arrivals of wheat have also been heavy, but most of the con- signments have been to ordcr so that none has been offered. Flour may be still quoted at £10 10s. A subject worthy of notice is the increased inclination of our Sydney people to speculate in mining shares. Several new mines have been discovered lately, and parties are engaged in forming companies to work them, and it i» thought that during the present Session of Council, some of these will apply for Acts of In- corporation. I may mention that considerable business has been done in tobacco and spirits. Su¿ar is exceedingly dull of sale, some has been forced into the market during the week at £16 to £18 for bright yellow. Tallow has also been sold at a shade lo...
SYDNEY. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 25 May 1849
SYDNEY. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) THE result of the election for the Speak- ership, you will find, has differed but very slightly from what I, in my last communication, anticipated ; the elected members were equally divided. I need hardly say that the liberal, or Wentworth and Lowe party, look ominously on this their first defeat ; and, from that, draw their conclusions, of what the remainder of the session will be. Their prognos- tications seem to be still further verified, by the division on the Contested Elec- tions Act, last night. The reply to His Excellency's speech was, much to the surprise of every body, carried in the tamest manner, without a word of comment from any but the mover and seconder. It had been currently reported that Mr. Lowe would have taken this opportunity of raising a transportation debate, and of thus eli- citing the opinions of members, as well as of the Government, on the point. But every one in the House appears fearful of approaching this questio v...

Domestic Intelligence. ATTEMPT TO MURDER. — Intelligence has reached Melbourne, from the station of John Bear, Esq., at the Plenty Ranges, that a most daring attempt to murder was made there, on Tuesday last. A notori- ous ruffian, named Ashwell, an expiree, from Van Diemen's Land, had been living on the station as a shepherd, and on the above day he waylaid a fellow servant, named Robert Mason, at whom he presented a doublebarrelled gun, but, fortunately it hung fire ; he then knocked his victim down, by striking him on the side of the head with his gun, and while Mason was lying insensible, he deliber- ately raised the deadly weapon a second time, to carry out his diabolical design, when Mr. Boyd, the overseer, rushed to the spot, thereby saving Mason from certain death. Ashwell has absconded, but a warrant is out for his apprehension ; he is described as a fearless ruffian, and of immense strength.
TOWN COUNCIL. Wednesday, May 23rd. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 25 May 1849
TOWN COUNCIL. Wednesday, May 23rd. &nbsp; &nbsp; Present—His Worship the Mayor, Aldermen Greeves, Johnston, and Kerr; Councillors Annand, Armitstead, Clark, Murray, Nicholson, Rankin, and Stephen. MINUTES. The minutes of last meeting were read and confirmed. Alderman Johnston enquired whether all the fines, imposed upon members for absence upon calls of the Council, had been paid. The Town Clerk replied there was &nbsp; only one fine unpaid, but it had been promised, and would, he had no doubt, be forthwith paid. COMMITTEE MEETINGS. Minutes of meetings of the Finance and Public Works Committees were read. The latter contained the report of an interview with his Honor the Superin- tendent, relative to the alignment of streets in east Melbourne, and the inter- section of Collingwood with streets. It appeared from the report that his Honor had at once consented to the wishes of the Council relative to the laying out of the proposed extension of the city east- wa...
Original Correspondence. To the Editor of the Argus. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 25 May 1849
Original Correspondence. To the Editor of the Argus. MR. EDITOR—In my last I endea- voured to remove the objections to hav- ing recourse to a Colonial Public Debt, and also pointed out our resources for such a proceeding, chiefly founded on a comparison of the relative wealth and capabilities of Great Britain and Aus- tralia. I now proceed to consider the extent to which it would be prudent and advisable to enter upon this plan, for commanding a steady current of immi- gration into New South Wales in com- mulo—and Port Phillip, or Victoria in particular. Referring to the data in my last, I would say, that as the national debt of Great Britain is equal to above four times the annual amount of her exports and imports united, by the same rule New South Wales might safely go the length of fifteen millions sterling, or according to population one-third that amount, but such an amount would be quite overwhelming in another point of view—I allude to the sum which would annually have to be ...
LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. Tuesday, May 15. ELECTION OF SPEAKER. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 25 May 1849
LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. &nbsp; &nbsp; Tuesday, May 15. ELECTION OF SPEAKER. No other member following Mr. Dangar (who was speaking when the mail closed,a Mr. Suttor replied, and the question was put that Dr. Ni- cholson do take the chair as Speaker of the House. On the division there appeared Ayes. 18 Noes. 7 Dr. Nicholson was consequently declared duly elected, and took his seat accordingly. The only Port Phillip member present was Mr. William Macarthur who voted in the majority. The Speaker then returned thanks, and was congratulated upon his election by the Colonial Secretary, in the name of the Council. Wednesday, May 16. The Council met at 10 o'clock, and proceeded to Government House, when the Speaker was presented to the Governor, who was pleased to confirm the election. Thursday, May 17. The Governor having appointed this day for the opening of the Council, the house was crowded with ladies and gentlemen, assembled to witness the ceremony. The only members ab- &...

Domestic Intelligence. THE BAZAAR.—A sum of upwards of &nbsp; £60 was raised yesterday, for the pur- poses announced in our last, but the wea- ther was very much opposed to the origi- nators of the fancy fair. PLAGIARISM.—There is a coolness about the dishonesty of some of our brethren of the quill, which is absolutely refreshing to those who can secea little behind the &nbsp; scenes. The " Daily News," for in- stance, lately purloined a whole original letter from the " Sydney Atlas," and palmed it off upon its readers as the pro- duction of a correspondent of its own. When taxed with the theft, the best de- fence of that highly honourable journal was that it appeared in " its outer form." About equivalent to a man's justifying the making free with another's handker- chief, by his having put it, when stolen, in his " left-hand pocket." Soon after, another communication from " our own correspondent," appeared, and this time in the inner form ; and in this, nearly a wh...

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." FRIDAY, MAY, 25, 1849. THE SUPREME COURT. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 25 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." FRIDAY, MAY, 25, 1849. THE SUPREME COURT. &nbsp; DID the looseness, irregularity, and want of dignity, which characterise proceed- ings in our principal law court, produce no more serious effects, they might be passed over cursorily, or with silent re- gret. But very serious evils arise from the unusual course adopted there, and it strikes us that the cases which came up for trial during the last term, are strongly suggestive of the ill effects which natu- rally follow so unwholesome a state of things. A few of these cases will afford a subject for profitable review. First upon the list stands ' Livingston &nbsp; v. Purcell and Moor.' The defendant agreed to purchase from the plaintiff a run and a number of sheep, at a certain price, and ratified the bargain by their signatures. There remained only to take delivery and receive pay...
