LAUNCESTON MARKETS. May 19, 1849. Since our last the market has slightly rallied, and wheat is again fetching 3s 3d per bushel.

STEAM COMMUNICATION TO AUSTRALIA Downing-street,   30th November, 1848. Sir—With reference to previous cor- respondence on the subject, I transmit to you herewith for your information and guidance, the enclosed copy of a letter from the Assistant Secretary to the Board of Treasury intimating that, ad- verting to the advantages which may be anticipated from the acceleration of the communication with the Australian Co- lonies by the establishment of steam conveyance, and looking to the aid which may be expected from the colonies towards the expence of the undertaking, the Lords Commissioners are of opinion that they will be justified in accepting a tender made by the India and Australia Steam Packet Company for the convey- ance of the mails between Singapore and Sydney, in three vessels of two hundred horse power for £26,000 per annum for a period of not less than six years, and that they have intimated to the Board of Admiralty their approval of such con- tract being con...

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

WARRNAMBOOL. (From our own correspondent.) There is room, in this district, for an- other threshing machine. The farmers here have been subject to great delay, some of them having been waiting up- wards of two months for a machine, although there are three here. Next year however, there will be less delay. The public school, for which the building in Warrnambool was erected, was opened yesterday morning, by Mr. M'Donald ; an attendance of upwards of twenty-five scholars is expected. There has been great delay in this matter which was, however unavoidable. The school committee applied to the Govern- ment for pecuniary aid, but met with no success. The Episcopalians are bestirring them- selves in this quarter. A temporary place of worship is to be erected at Wood- ford, for which about £50 has, already, been subscribed. Great disappointment was felt at the departure of the Rev. Mr. Strong, as it was supposed he would have been stationed here. One of the earliest inhabitants of Warrnam...

Domestic Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 1 June 1849

Domestic Intelligence. Unjust.—Under the above heading, our friend Buggins is very severe upon us for an imaginary trick, which he affects to believe we have played him, in a late issue of a Gazette Ex- traordinary, referring to the sale of leases of land, lapsed under the pre-emptive right, accord-   ing to the new regulations. The order for the   publication of this Exrtaordinary was received at the Argus office on Morday afternoon, with a re-   quest that it would be delivered in time the fol- lowing morning for the Gipps Land mail, a large portion of the notices referring to that lo- cality, and it did not go to press till after the Go- vernment offices were closed. Nobody knows better than Buggins that we have nothing to do with the copy of the Gazette forwarded to him, our duty being simply to print it according to order, and to deliver it at the office of the Clerk of Works. It is rather modest of our friend to   expect us t...

MISCELLANEOUS. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 1 June 1849

MISCELLANEOUS. A few things to avoid.—A bottle of wine at a public dinner; a short cut when you are in a hurry ; metaphysics at five o'clock in the morning ; walking between two umbrellas on a pouring wet day ; a man who carries bill-stamps in his pocket-book ; "just another glass before you go ; " taking a pocket tele- scope or oranges to the Opera, or asking for a bill of the play ; sitting next to the orchestra when they are playing one of Halevy's light operas ; going into a church without a shilling ; being the mediator of a quarrel between a man and his wife ; bowing to a lady from the top of an omnibus ; and taking a new hat to an evening party.   The Governor Backing a Native's Bill. —We are informed that we were in error in stating that the schooner Rose was presented to Epuni by Sir George Grey.
