THE " ARGUS" EXPRESS. [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 19 June 1846

THE " ARGUS" EXPRESS. Again our Sydney Express has done "the state good service," and the ARGUS is once more the only medium through which the important intelligence con- tained in our Legislative Council report can be obtained until the arrival of the overland mail and the issue, far on in the day, of the publications of the other journals.   We refer our readers with particular pleasure to the Governor's Financial Minute, and to that part of it especially where his Excellency tells the Council very coolly that since they will have jus- tice done in the matter of the squatteis, he will be no party to any attempt at " robbing Peter to pay Paul,"-he will be no consenting party to their taking the money raised for the protection of the squatters of Port Phillip to provide pro- tection for the squatters of Sydney. This just and equitable poeitien takes the Syd- ney robbers as fairly " on the hip" as ever men weic taken, for it so happens that out of the £17,000 surplus íev...

To the Editor of the Melbourne Argus. [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 19 June 1846

To the Editor of the Melbourne Argus. Sir-The narrative contained in a late number of the Argus, giving an account of tlae wretched condition of Mr. O'Connell's tenantry in Ireland, has led me to form an opinion of " that great man" widely different from thal which 1 had for- merly entertained. 'Hie hard gnnding tyranny by which his con- duct towards those miseiuble beings is charac- terised would surely be altogether incredidle, wero it not for the circumstances connected with the publication of that report. Published, however, us it has been, in the Times newspaper, and written by a reporter sent over for the purpose of cor- recting, or confirming, a former account which had been published, there is no room for one to doubt for a moment of its truthfulness. Besides this, indeed, it bears internat evidence of its ve- racity ; it eames the appearance of truth upon the lace of it. To me, it seems to be a sober, straightforward account of what the writer saw and heard of the matter; a...

STATE OF TRADE. (From the Leicester Mercury of Saturday.) [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 19 June 1846

STATE OF TRADE. (From the Leicester Mercury of Saturday.) LEICESTER.-There is no change of importance since last week. Some few orders have been re- ceived, and continue to come in ; but, generally speaking, trade is dull. This is to be expected, indeed, from the inactivity which has ruled in London for the last few weeks ; and whenever there is a slackness for more than a week or two, everybody knows that the Londoners become ap- prehensive and timid, and withhold orders. The stocks, however, are not excessive either in Lon- don or Leicester. The expected further increase   by the Bank of England in the rate of interest will, if made, also have the effect of making the money-market tighter ; so that, until Parliament   has decided one way or other upon the Premier's . Corn Law measure, and till there has been some positive move made in railway legislation, we cannot anticipate any alteration in our comaier- ' cial prospects. Prices of material remain tho -...

THE LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. The resolution of the Legislative Council for an adjournment until the 21st July, has been followed up by a proclamation from His Excellency the Governor di- recting a prorogation till the 25th August, and till that date the Council stands pro- rogued accordingly, without, however, being then to meet for the despatch of business. We need scarcely remark that this is tantamount to washing his hands of them altogether until the arrival of his successor.

PUBLIC MEETING. We are happy to observe from an an- nouncement which appears in -another column, that a public meeting is to be held at the Royal Hotel to-morrow, for the piirpose of expressing the piíblíc ap- probation of the conduct of his Excellency the Governor, in resisting the spoliation of this district of a farther sum of £14,000. We hear in the course of our peregri- nations sundry doubts thrown out as to the propriety of our expressing thankful- ness for a service which is obviously done, not so much With the wish of bene fitting us as of spiting our enemies; now why such hesitation should exist is, we confess, more than we can exactly com- prehend. We ha-\e as little love for Sir George Gipps and his doings as most folks, but still we know and can acknow- ledge justice when we receive it at his hands without looking very narrowly at the why or the wherefore of his giving it us. In the present case his Excellency stands in the breach to do us justice, and so long as he fol...
