SUPREME COURT—IN BANCO. &nbsp; &nbsp; Tuesday, May 22. &nbsp; (Before His Honor the Resident Judge.) &nbsp; Hogan v. Miller—Mr Barry obtained a rule nisi on behalf of defendant, calling upon plaintiff to show cause why the nonsuit entered on 3rd May should not be set aside and a new trial granted. Doe dem, Watt and another, v. £o#_ ' On the motion of Mr Stawell, judgment against the casual ejector was granted. Rankin v. Boursiquot— Mr Barry &nbsp; appeared for the defendant in support of a demurrer to the replication. The main objection taken by Mr Barry was, that the replication, de injaia, went beyond the record by putting ¡n nue, matters not raised upon the previous parti of the record. He objected that the matter raised was matter of discharge and not of excuse. An objection was also taken to the declaration on the ground that the article complained of referring to the ability and not the in- tegrity of the plaintiff, was not libellous. Mr...

Select Poetry. LINES SUGGESTED BY THE FOLLOWING SINGULAR CIR- CUMSTANCE:— &nbsp; &nbsp; " Our readers," says a London journal, "re- member the melancholy wreck of the splendid steamer the Atlantic, when forty souls perished. At that time a piece of the wreck, with the steamer's bell attached to it, became, and con- tinues still fastened between two rocks. During every swell of the waves the bell tones forth its melancholy note over the spot where the vessel's living cargo was engulphed." O'er the blue ocean's wild and billowy surf, Commingling with the deep, lone voice of waves, A knell floats mournfully—where no upraised turf Gives indication of a place of graves— A dirge funereal rises on the deep, And marks a tomb round which no mourners weep : &nbsp; A fatal spot, where rocky cliffs prevail, O'er which the breaker roams with fiercest roar, &nbsp; Where rose the vessel's crash—the fearful wail— As ocean's victims sank to rise no more; &nbsp...

MELBOURNE MARKET. Monday, May 28, 1849. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 29 May 1849
MELBOURNE MARKET. &nbsp; Monday, May 28. 1849. &nbsp; GRAIN—During last week the price of wheat has advanced a little, some samples having sold as high as 4s. per bushel. This rise is owing partially to the state of the weather curtailing the &nbsp; supplies sent in from the country, but principally &nbsp; to the upward tendency which the Sydney Market has lately exhibited. The Melbourne is always influenced more by the Sydney Market, than by any local circumstances, and as yesterday's mail brings the intelligence of a further rise there, the &nbsp; same may be confidently looked for here. All other descriptions of grain remain the same as last quoted, viz. barley, 2s. 9d ; oats (seed ) 3s 6d ; ditto (common) 2s 6d to 3s per bushel. Flour—This article advanced in price simul- taneously with wheat, and is now selling at, first quality, £10 10s; seconds, £9 10s per 2000 lbs. Hay £2 15s per ton. &nbsp;
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, 29, 1849. THE GOVERNOR'S SPEECH. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 29 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, 29, 1849. THE GOVERNOR'S SPEECH. It seldom happens that those bland and conciliatory documents—addresses from the throne, afford much room for com- ment, except, indeed, on the score of omis- sion. They are usually little more than &nbsp; matters of form, mere gatherings of un- meaning congratulations, and still more unmeaning courtesies. Sir Charles Fitz Roy's address on the opening of the present session of the Le- gislative Council is not, however, of this class ; it breathes throughout a spirit of cordiality which there is no mistaking, and the prospects it opens up afford room for sincere congratulation. Abundant immigration, the speedy establishment of steam communication with England, am- ple encouragement for the formation of colonial railways, and, though last, not least, the long-desired blessing of Postage Reform,...

Domestic Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 29 May 1849
Domestic Intelligence. Singular Will.—An application was made to the Supreme Court at Sydney lately under the Will of a gentle- man namad Orr, which contained several very strange provisions. Extracts from this singular production were read as follows : the testator, it would appear, was a bachelor, and had resided for some time in India, and after giving certain specific legacies to his relations and friends,his will proceeds :—" Nineteenth. To the Clergyman of the established Church of Scotland, parish of St Cyrus, county of Kincardine, for the time being, I give and bequeath for ever, the annual interest accruing from the sum of one thousand pounds sterling ; the interest to be divided into five equal portions, and appropriated as follows; first, one portion to be applied to the purchase of tea, sugar, meat, candles, flannel, and any other comforts that may, by the clergyman, be thought proper, and given by him to such poor and needy parish- ioners as he may think fit ; this dist...

[?]nal Correspondence. To the Editor of the Argus. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 29 May 1849
Original Correspondence. &nbsp; &nbsp; To the Editor of the Argus. Sir,—I observe that the Editor of the Daily &nbsp; News has attempted to deny the language im- puted to him in reference to the jury in his late libel action against Mr. M'Combie. I cannot, &nbsp; Mr. Editor, allow so bare-faced a falsehood to pass unrefuted, for I myself heard him in the open street state to Mr. Charles Barnes, of the firm of W. H. Barnes and Co., and some other gentlemen whom I do not know, not only that it was "a — — Scotch jury, from whom nothing better could be expected," but he added also that " no Irishman would receive justice at their hands." Mr. Boursiquot can bring Mr. Barnes to contradict me if I am doing him any injustice, or stating what is not true. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; I am, &c., TRUTH. &nbsp;
"A FEW DAYS IN THE DIGGINS." [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 29 May 1849
" A FEW DAYS IN THE DIGGINS." Landed at St. Francisco, after a 'tarnal tossin of five months. This is coming thro' the small eends of the Horn I reckon, and there ought to be pretty considerable some on the other side, to make up for leavin' my dry goods store and family fixins in Broadway. Traded with a Down-Easter, who is makin' tracks for the settlements, with 30,000 dollars in his carpet-bag, for a spade, pick, scoop, and washin' trough —givin' 800 dollars for the plunder, and glad to get it, as Increase Niles Flint, of Salem, Mass., went 750, and he is a 'tarnal old boss at a deal. Swopped my traps and blankets, a quarter-cask of pickled pork, and a demijohn of peach brandy, which I had laid in, for six pounds of gincoine gold. Pretty considerable smart tradin ! Totted my tools to Hiram K. Dough- boy's boarding shanty, and settled with him for blankets and board at 30 dollars &nbsp; per diem. Catawampus prices here, that's a fact ; but everybody's got more dust than he ...
THE SETTLED DISTRICTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 29 May 1849
THE SETTLED DISTRICTS. We perceive by a notice in another co- lumn, that the leases of a considerable number of the sections of land claimed under the abominable pre-emptive right, are to be put up for sale by auction, in consequence of the parties entitled to this so-called boon, never having taken the trouble to pay the amount necessary to enable them to retain possession. Out of one hundred and ten sections applied for, no fewer than forty-two have been allowed to lapse from this reason, thereby showing the importance which the land-owners attach to the right of pre-emption, which has in- fringed so seriously upon the peace and quiet of the squatters in the settled dis- tricts. It scarcely required this to show the folly and injustice of the new regu- lations, or to prove the truth of the ar- guments of those parties who asked with all reasonableness and moderation, that the whole matter should be left un- meddled with, till Separation had taken place. We hear, too, that the thir...
SUPREME COURT. Before his Honor the Resident Judge. Friday, May 25. IN BANCO. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 29 May 1849
SUPREME COURT. Before his Honor the Resident Judge. Friday, May 25. IN BANCO. His Honor made his appearance at the door of the court, but instantly re- treated to his chambers, exclaiming " this is intolerable." The place was full of smoke. Accordingly barristers, reporters, and others, were invited into his Honor's sanctuary, where there was a good fire, and the business was gone through in a remarkable cosy comfort- able sort of manner. The learned coun- sel seated at a table with the judge, ad- dressed him in a familiar conversational style, really pleasant to listen to. Pollard v. Davey.—Mr. Barry moved for a rule nisi in this case, calling upon the defendant to show cause why the verdict should not be set aside, and a new trial granted, in the meantime all proceedings to be stayed. Mr. Barry moved on three grounds ; 1st—misdi- rection by the judge, in having put the evidence of the plaintiff's attorney re- specting a conversation with the defen- dant as the lowest description o...
