LATER ENGLISH NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 22 September 1849
LATER ENGLISH NEWS. SThe C(ourier from London to Port Phil lip brings news to the 6th of June. In the House of Commons, on the 4th of June, Mr. Hawes moved for leave to bring in aBill, founded on the report of the Coun cil, for giving separate legislative institu tions to the Australian colonies. The Hen. Gent's speech contained merely an exposi tion of the measure. SMr. Gladstone in referring to some of the provisions of the Bill, thus alluded to the subject of the elective franchise. SIu New South VWales the franchise was greatly limited, and he admitted the ditieoulty of conferring those large powers which it was desirable to ex tend. For himself, he was not. sufficiently ac quainted with the state of society in thlat colony to be competent to offer an opinion as to the desira. bility of altering and exteuding, by the autihority of the Parliament of this conuntry, the franchise at pre sent in existence; but he was inclined to think thft crtainalterations might be made-if not to t...

CORONER'S INQUEST ON THE BODY OF THE LATE ALEX. MACDONALD. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 22 September 1849
CORONER'S INQUEST ON THE BODY OF THE LATE ALEX. MIACDONALD. An inquest was held on Monday last, at the Sa lutation Inn, Auburn-street, on view of the body of Alexander Macdonald, who died on the previous Saturday, in a rather sudden manner. The de ceased was well known in Goulburn, where he prac. tised as a surgeon. A fortuitous interest is attached to his death, he having been one of the ittesting witnesses to the will of the late Mr. Thomas Har rison, the validity of which has recently been the subject of judicial enquiry. A jury having been empanneled by the Coroner Robert Waugh, Esq., the following evidence was adduced. Mr. George Weakley, landlord of the Salutation Inn, having been sworn, deposed:-I have seen the body of the deceased; he lived at my house from the 14th of February until the 6th instant, when he went to Long's; he was of very temperate habits during the time he remained with me, and until last Saturday fortnight when he commenced drinking, and I never saw him pe...
BRITISH WOOL MARKETS. LONDON, JUNE 4. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 22 September 1849
BRITISH WOOL MIARKETS. LONDON, JUNE 4. ( The public sales of wool of the present season's clip, which opened on the 10th, and terminated on the 28th May, are thus re ported on by Messrs. J. T. Simes & Co., the eminent Wool Brokers. The quantity brought forward and sold consisted of 6023 Bales Australian 3511 ,, Van Diemen's Land 4898 ,, Port Phillip 3185 ,, South Australian 5456 ,, Cape 23073 782 ,, East India. 2i3855 .During their continuance very considerable arrivals have taken place, which are (with some trifling exceptions) held over conform ably with the tacit understanding existing in the trade, that after the sales have com menced no fresh arrivals are brought forward (except under very peculiar circumstances), and the judicious adherence to this rule has mainly contributed to prices being fairly maintained throughout at the opening rates, which are considered as closely ap proximating to those obtained for similar descriptions at the late sales in February. Although...
MY OBJECTIONS TO CAPITAL PUNISHMENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 22 September 1849
MY OBJECTIONS TO CAPITAL PUNISHMENT. IMnralIs, I am adverse to the punishment of death on the grounds of its immorality, its injustice, and its utter inexpediency! The objects of punishment are numerous, its most important are-compatibly with jus tic-to redress, to reform, and to deter; to effect which, is to be guided by the dictates of morality, justice, and inexpedience, rather than by their reverse; but blocks and gib bets are the easiest and speediest remedies in the hands of power, whose business un happily has. ever been more intimate with crime and its inherent attributes than with those holier appeals of hope and virtue. Every one must I think have felt, that there are some things that appeal to his sym pathies more than his understanding, im pressing him instinctively with the reality of their nature, towards the spirit of which he has an intuitive perception, which no argu ment, no cause or fancied necessity, can alter or dispel; and I confess, that even if I had no sembl...
THE AUSTRALIAN COLONIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 22 September 1849
THE AUSTRALIAN COLONIES. [From the Morning Chronicle, June 4.] Mr. Hawes has laid upon the table of the H-ouse of Commons certain papers relating to the Australian Colonies, which cannot but be regarded as possessing a high degree of interest and importance. In the first place, they form the foundation of a - Bill which he is to move to-night for leave to bring in ; and in the next, they contain the latest exposition of Lord Grey's views on colonial government, in the shape of "A " Report from the Committee of Council for " Trade and Plantations, on the subject of "the proposed Bill for the separation of " Port Phillip from New South WVales, and " the extension of representative institu " tions to Van Diemen's Land and South " Australia" Considered in this point of view, the document in question is in some respects satisfactory; not, indeed, as indicating that Lord Grey has arrived at completely sound conclusions, but as showing decided symp toms of advance. This Report is much bett...
Original Correspondence. To the Editor of the "Goulburn Herald." [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 22 September 1849
-o To the Editor of the " Goulburn Herald.' Sca'- Observing in last Saturday's issue of the Goulburni Herald a letter from 'William Tell,' com mentiig hpon my former letter on the Crown Lands question, I certainly cannot agree to his remarks. In the first portion of his letter, he says,-land purchasers under the old regulations flattered them. selves into the belief, that the favor shown by the governments of those times would be binding on succeeding governments. I think it does not re quire very powerful logic to convince any honest minded man that where a government becomes party to any contract, it is their duty beyond a question to fulfill their portion of it; bearing in mind that they always reserve the power to compel a private indi vidual to a strictobservance on his part. The com pactof one government is binding on succeeding governments, however disadvantageous that may be to the public at large to get rid of any offensive compact or pledge, by allowing compensation. This ...

Original Poetry. NO MORE. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 22 September 1849
----o--- NO MORE. " TAKE away you purple bowl; What is left to greet it now ? Loathsome lip, that turns away, Sullen eye, and weary brow; Social joys that wont to laugh, Mirth that lit its purple store, Friends with whom we poured its wealth, Are no more." L. E. L. No more, no more! these hopeless words awaken Within the breast a feeling of despair; When we reflect how passing time hath taken For ever from us all that made life fair. Yes, all is gone which gave to life its gladness; The dreams we cherished now, alas I are o'er: In pleasures, once beloved, we find but sadness, The sweetness which youth gave them comes no more. No more again we'll wander through the wildwood, Where merrily our young days fleeted by; No more return the happy hours of childhood, lis winter mirth,-the warmth of its.July. No more the heart beats high with blissful feeling, Or trembles now with hope and now with fear, As to the object of its love revealing The tale which crimsons her young cheek to hear. A...

Domestic Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 22 September 1849
THE LATE RAPE CASE.--It has been stated that a portion of the depositions taken before the Quean beyan Bench in the late rape case, were destroyed by order of Mr. Terence Murray, who was presiding on thle occasion. We have been informed, upon the best suthority, that this is wholly false. No writings of any sort pertaining to the inquiry were suppressed by the authority of Mr. Murray or any other magistrate. From enquiries that have been instituted, it has been ascertained that the proseeu trix, Margaret Ivers has borne an irreproachable character during the two years she has resided in the Rev. Mr. Smith's family. PLAN OF Gour.nunt--A splendid plan of the townshlip, upon a very large scale, hIas beei re ceived from the Surveyor General's Office.

YASS. .Through the mediumt of your Journal, I wigth to c'1 atteution to proceedings at onr Police.Office, in ithe cause, under the Malicious Injuries Act, of Qverall v. H-lardy, tried there a short time since. The defendant was one of our J.P.'s, but of course could not sit upon the Bench in his owl' case, he, however, annoyed the Court by repeated interrup tions, and was several times called to order by the Bench. During the cross-examination of Mr. Quail by Mlr. Grant, Mr. -Hardy, made use of the expressions. " rogues and house-breakers." Mr. 'llman wished to know if these remarks were in. tended to refer to him, or his witness, Mr. Quail. Their Worships said that if order could not be maintained they would be compelled to adjourn'the hearing of the case. It is too bad tilat judicial pro ceedings should be interrupted by those who ought to be the first to uphold the dignity of a Court of Justice.

LATE EUROPEAN NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 22 September 1849
LATE EUROPEAN NEWS. -0 THE arrival of the Melbourne from London at Port Phillip, has given us news down to the 5th of June. The Privy Council had made their report on the subject of the New Constitution for the Australian Colonies. Owing to the length of the document we are unable to publish it at full length, but in another column will be found copious extracts from it. The Melbourne papers, in alluding to it, are very indignant at Mr. La Trobe's having recommended that the Council for Victoria should be a nominee instead of a representa tive one. The honorable gentleman was induced to do so, seeing how foolishly the inhabitants used their elective privilege on late occasions. We take the following precis from our con temporaries, the Melbourne Daily NVews and The Argus. The Report recommends the adoption of the name Victoria for Port Phillip. The present boundary lines to be retained. The Legislature for Victoria, Adelaide, and Van Diemen's Land, to be the counterpart of that of S...
