MELBOURNE MARKETS. October 19, 1848. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 20 October 1848

MELBOURNE MARKETS. October 19, 1848. Grain—-Wheat has declined a little in price since our last report; a quantity which was of a first rate quality was sold yesterday and only realised 4s 6d per bushel. It is now ascertained that there is sufficient stock in the Colonies for their consumption, and that the cry of scarcity which was prevalent some time since, must have been raised by speculators to suit their own pur- poses. It is expected that the price quoted will be permanent for some time ; the fact that the present appearances of the young wheat in the province, indicate an abundant harvest, will of itself prevent any considerable rise taking place Oats are very scarce, and but for a late importa- tion from V. D. Land the market would have been almost entirely without them, 4s 9d per bushel is the selling price. Flour.—This article has experienced a con- siderable declension. First quality is now selling as low as £12 ; seconds at £11 per 2000lbs.   Hay.-There is s...

Original Poetry. THE GHAIST. A TRUE STORY. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 20 October 1848

Original Poetry.       THE GHAIST. A TRUE STORY.   There's mony a lang learn'd dissertation   Been written out in explanation,   By ane or twa lang-headed chiels To prove that goblins, ghaists an' deils Had ne'er existed but in prent, An' a' that folk ha'e seen or kent About sic things was only nonsense, Or thoughts brought on by evil conscience ; But sair 'twad grieve me to disarm   Our granny's stories o' their charm That made them worth our while to hear O' warlock spells, an ghaistly gear, Or undermine our faith in witches An said horse shoon, an' rowan switches, An' mony a tale that made us shudder An' draw in owre to ane anither An' haud our vera breath for fear Expecting Cloutie to appear— But let thae callants hear ye mention Whate'er is past their comprehension, Then they maun shew their erudition By settin 't down as superstition— Be that as't may I'll no dispute it Nor say anither w...

Domestic Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 20 October 1848

Domestic Intelligence. The Labour Market.—The experi-   ment of sending emigrant ships to Geelong has proved a failure—the Berkshire being the first and the last that will be sent there for a long time to come. The Tasman which was to have debarked her immigrants at Point Henry has in consequence come up to Hobson's Bay. Medical.—A rumour was circulated through town, and insinuated by a contemporary of Monday last, that the death of a woman named Surah Denham, who expired rather sud- denly at Heidleberg, was caused by the injudi- cious medical treatment of Dr. Thomas. A   reference to the evidence given at the inquest,   which appears in another column, will at once disprove the calumny. Auctioneering.— Mr. George Sin-   clair Brodie who has so long taken rank as the chief of the Melbourne auctioneers, has resigned   the hammer in favour of Messrs. W. M. Ten- nent &.

COUNTRY NEWS. [FROM OUR SEYMOUR CORRESPONDENT.] [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 24 October 1848

COUNTRY NEWS. [From our Seymour correspondent.] I postponed my communication until to- day, that I might be enabled to state the result of the sudden rise in the Goulburn at the latter end of last week, which com- mencing on Friday, continued to rise and finally overflow the banks, but I am happy to say without causing any parti- cular inconvenience to residents here. The " Seymour Hotel," and other build- ings passed through the ordeal scathless. The waters commenced receding on Sa- turday, and have been rapidly falling ever since. There have been no accidents of a fatal character, that I am aware of, re- sulting from the sudden overflow. On Saturday evening last, two men had a narrow escape from drowning in the Creek near to the Police Barracks. They were coming into the Township from Avenall, the station of Mr. Jones, in a spring cart, which was capsized in the creek, and the men, one of whom was lame, must have met a watery grave had it not been for the praiseworthy exertions of...
