CALIFORNIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 29 May 1849

CALIFORNIA.     There is something very creditable to the coolness and common sense ofl the Mel- bourne people, in the fact of the yellow fever f California having been allowed to make so slight an inroad on their con- stitutions, when it has long been racing in nearly all the adjacent colonies, and has gradually spread over the whole civilised world. Considering that we are of a tolerably adventurous and specula- tive character, that the great majority   amongst us have never shown any par- ticular aversion to the filthy lucre, of which so many fine things have been wriitten and said, it is, we repeat, highly creditable to us as a community, that this particular branch of the golden disease has hitherto made so little progress amongst us. But we are at length stricken. " Yellow Jack" is with us at last. Doctors Brodie and Raleigh have thoroughly inoculated us, and we shall be all as mad as our neighbours forthwith. Some good will, no doubt, ar...

MOUNT MACEDON. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 29 May 1849

MOUNT MACEDON. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.)   I have had no news of any importance to forward you since I last wrote to you ;   things have appeared very dull in this neighbourhood latterly. Mr. T. H. Pyke, with a large party of gentlemen, (amongst whom are some of your Mel- bourne folk) accompanied by his hounds, has arrived amongst us with the glorious sounds of hound and horn to expel the monotony. They have already had good sport, and scalped some warrigals. I understand three Pentonvillains have been committed to gaol by the Mount Macedon Bench, to await their trial for the robbery of Mr Joseph Raleigh's store, at Sutton Grange, near Mount Alexander. It appears either all or some of them had been in the employ of Mr Raleigh on the station until a few days previous to the robbery, which I believe was managed very cleverly and quietly by them, as I am informed the overseer's room is attached to the store, and a door opening from it into the store. The s...

Original Poetry. CERCOPITHECUS VERSUS SIMIAM. Quanquam ridentem dicere verum, quid vetat? HORACE. What hinders any man, forsooth, To laugh, and tell the naked truth? [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 29 May 1849

Original Poetry. CERCOPITHECUS VERSUS SIMIAM.     Quanquam ridentem dicere verum, quid velat? Horace.   What hinders any man, forsooth, To laugh, and tell the naked truth ?     Of all the law and law decisions, Attainders, verdicts or revisions, I ever read, the best is yet, The Daily versus the Gazette. Take lawyers law, and all the totum, Include even "Bullum vertut Boatum," And all their cases ne'er gave birth, To such a real source of mirth.     Here we perceive the strength of Solon, Defeated by a semicolon ; Our libel law knock'd out of joint, By the omission of a point ;     And Thomas, by a period,   Released from fear of fine and quod. Defendant's first interrogation Was, " pray, Sir, «hat is punctuation? " And witness felt a sort of stupor, And thought of Crib and Astley Cooper, And rummaging his recollection, Said " something used in venesectio...

Original Correspondence. To the Editor of the Argus. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 29 May 1849

Original Correspondence. To the Editor of the Argus. Sir,—Yours appears to be the only one of the Port Phillip journals that takes a correct view of the public interests with reference to the Squatting Regula- tions. From your observations on the subject, I am induced to hope that you will direct public attention to the new feature which has recently been brought to light, in the Squatting Regulations, and which has already been attended with great injury to individuals, who were desirous of becoming purchasers of Crown Land, with the intention of cul- tivating, and living upon it. At the re- quest of some persons who, in reliance on the published land regulations had arranged all their future plans to settle as farmers in the Colac District, I ap- plied to the Survey Office to have three small lots, and two full sections of land in the Colac District put up at the next land sale. The official answer which I received, astonished me, and I think will astonish every man in the colony—...

Domestic Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 29 May 1849

Domestic Intelligence. Music Class.—We are happy to hear that the music class of the Mechanics' Institute, purpose availing themselves of the pre- sent moon, by giving another of their admirable concerts, in the course of the ensuing week. Police Office.—Councillor Moor and     — Cuninghame, Esq. presided yesterday. James Lynch and Alexander Robinson, first offence for drunkenness, were fined five shillings.—A man named Henry Rutter, was charged by a Mr Whittaker, residing at Collingwood, with forcibly entering his house on Sunday, and breaking the door and windows. It appeared the defendant, while in a state of intoxication, imagined the premises occupied by Mr. Whittaker were his property, and accordingly proceeded to take pos- session, severely assaulting Mrs. Whittaker in doing so. The complainant said he was not de- sirous the defendant should be heavily punished, as it was evident he had committed the outrage when utterly unable to control himself. Th...

SYDNEY. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 1 June 1849

SYDNEY. (From our own correspondent.) The last week of the Legislative Coun- cil has brought great disappointment to our good citizens of Sydney. It has shown them with what repugnance many of our legislators approach the all ab- sorbing question of Transportation, as they fear to record their votes against the known wishes of their constituencies, whilst at the same time, as was observed by Mr. Cowper, they have a strong han- kering after a return to a system which promises them a cheap and unbounded supply of labour. Mr. Cowper, how- ever, is determined in his strong opposi- tion, and on Tuesday next, we may rely upon having his motion brought for- ward. It was somewhat amusing to observe the badgering the honorable member for Cumberland suffered on Tuesday last, previous to moving his resolution ; mem- bers from all parts of the House were besieging him to postpone or withdraw it, and his constancy is worthy of admi- ration and imitation, in not yielding to their persuasions.

THE LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 1 June 1849

THE LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. The exquisitely absurd farce which our Geelong neighbours have, for the last twelve months, been playing, under the name of Real Representation is still proceeding, resignation following elec- tion, and election following resignation, the poor deluded mortals who have lent themselves to such a mockery, all the while fancying themselves in the enjoy- ment of bona fide representation. Doctor Palmer has now followed in the wake of his colleagues Messrs. Williamson and Curr, and resigned the privilege of franking, which seems to us to be the only reality about the Port Phillip repre- sentation. The intimation of the worthy Doctor's abandonment of his sena- torial honours, is contained in a letter to a friend, which is published in the Geelong Advertiser, from which we learn that the Doctor having ceased to be a member of the Legislative Council, " the time of action has arrived, and it is right that Port Phillip should be in the field." He says, " I will not bel...

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, JUNE, 1, 1849. THE CITY MAGISTRACY. The debate in the City Council, on the question of the Magistracy, a brief report of which appears in our Supple- ment of to-day, will be read with con- siderable interest. The fact stated by the mover, that, (with one exception, and that scarcely to be regarded as such,) the municipal authorities have uniformly been excluded from the Commission of the Peace, is alike true, and discreditable to the Go- vernment, for whatever difference of opinion may exist as to the propriety of appointing particular individuals to the magistracy, it is impossible that any man can justify the systematic exclusion of them all, or offer excuse for the insult to the whole body of the burgesses, which is manifest from the fact that there is not in their own Commission of the Peace, a single man of their choice, (with the ex...
