MIS- REPRESENTATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 22 January 1847
MIS -REPRESENT ATION. The Gazette has followed the Patriot in the disgraceful attempt to deceive the community, by representing the Goul- burn meeting of electois, as terminating in "favour of the renewal of Transporta- tion, and the latter journal, though abandoning its first assertion, that a pe- tition in favour of the " whole hog" scheme was carried " unanimously" by a " two to one" majority, still tries to carry on the deceit by representing a modification of the scheme embracing " persons convicted of political, military, and slight offences" only as being adopted by the meeting. We have but to reiterate that this mischievous assertion, is a shameless falsehood, and our contemporaries can scarcely plead ignorance in telling the vile untruth, for they have before them, and have both quoted from the report of the meeting in the supple- ment of the Sydney Morning Herald that Journal being the only one which had a Reporter present-and they must also have seen what was the result o...

THE PUBLIC VERDICT ON TRANSPORTATION. (From the Sydney Morning Herald.) [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 22 January 1847
THE PUBLIC VERDICT ON TRANS- PORTATION'. (From the Sydney Morning Herald.) TiiiiEE successive attempts having now been made ] by the advocates of transportation to obtain for their views the confirmation of their fellow-colo- nists in public meeting assembled, and the at- tempts having in every instance been signally de- feated, it'will be surely no longer questioned, even by the most sanguine of those erring gentle- men, thut public opinion is against them, and against them decidedly. They have nothing to complain of as to the mode of their defeat. They have in all respects had fair play. The meetings were constituted, and the votes taken, in strict conformity with the rules laid down by themselves. At Goulburn, the suffrage was restricted to the electors of the district ; ut Penrith, to persons resident in the district; whilst at Kissing Point the privilege was conceded to all who felt an interest in the subject. Thus the experiment has been tried in every form, from the tightest ...

To the Editor of the Melbourne Argus. Mr, Editor-Your having been kind enough to afford room in your truly in- dependent paper for my remarks on the proposed renewal of Transportation to Australia, induces me still further to in- trude, and to request the first spare cor- ker for an observation or two on the let- ter signed E. C. in the Argus of Tues- day last, which opens in a most heroic tiinde auent the melancholy fall of Aus- tralia Felix from its high estate !-its prostration in the dust-the assertion that murder and rapine go hand in hand, terminating in the climax that " blood nnd destruction shall be so in use, and dreadful objects so familiar, that mo- thers"- Will do what ? Why, Mr. E. C, after raising this mighty power of mischief, very coolly says he is to leave the laying of this devil of his own parent- age to you, Mr. Editor 1 Now, I do not think this is quite fair-every mnn to his ain begetting, say 1 5 but having already in the same number of the Argus stated my vie...

Domestic Intelligence. THE BURNS' FESTIVAL.—The third of the grand national re-unions in honour of the birth-day of Scotia's immortal bard, comes off at the Queen's Theatre on Monday evening, under the presidency of Mr. Alderman Bell. The ar- rangements, we believe, are on even a better scale than last year, though it is not expected the company will be quite so numerous, the late- ness of the harvest preventing the country Scots from attending the call for the coming " gather- ing of the clans." It is supposed that not fewer than 200 persons will be present, and judging from what has come under our own observation in the way of preparatory addresses to quivering gum trees and murmuring billows, we would have our readers prepare to expect in very truth "the feast of reason, and the flow of soul." COMING THE DOUBLE.—On Tuesday, a man named William Pane was brought before Archibald McLachlan, Esq., J.P., sitting magis- trate, upon the following charge of fraud :—Mr. John Clarke, resid...
