Original Correspondence. To the Editor of the Argus. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 1 June 1849
Original Correspondence. To the Editor of the Argus. &nbsp; Sir,—In my last, I stated the funded debt to be applicable to each division of the colony, at half-a-million, which would be about four pounds sterling to each individual in the colony, or, about one-seventh part as much as the public debt of Great Britain is, the population of the two countries relatively compared ; this sum I conceive, would be sufficient for the introduction of 100,000 souls, at ten pounds per head—say distributed over a period of two years, thus affording 10,000 immigrants per annum, to each district ; now that the emigration ques- tion is fairly roused at home, and I trust taken up by the Poor-law Unions of Eng- land, I would calculate on the number of emigrants being at least doubled ; or, in other words, be the means of supplying Australia with 200,000 additional inha- bitants within the period of five years— a period sufficient to prove the practica- bility and results of the proposed mea- s...

COUSIN SALLY DILLARD. SCENE—A Court of Justice in North Carolina. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 1 June 1849
COUSIN SALLY DILLARD. SCENE — A Court of Justice in North Carolina. A breadless disciple of Themis arises and thus addresses the Court :—" May it please your Worships, and you, gen- tlemen of the jury, since it has been my fortune (good or bad I will not say) to exercise myself in legal disquisition, it has never before befallen me to be obliged to prosecute so direful, marked, and malicious an assault — a more violent, wilful, dangerous assault and battery, and finally, a more diabolical breach of the peace it has seldom been your duty to pass judgment upon, one so shocking to benevolent feelings, as that which took place over at Captain Rice's in this county. But you will hear from the witnesses." The witnesses being sworn, two or three were examined, and deposed — one said that he had heard the noise, but did not see the fight — another, that he saw the row, but didn't know who struck first — and a third, that he was very drunk, and couldn't say much about the scrimmage Lawyer Fo...

INDEPENDENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 1 June 1849
INDEPENDENCE. Ye speak of Independence,— There is no such thing on earth,— We depend upon each other Still for all that life is worth ! To every mind that ponders, To every heart that feels, There's not a day but something This hidden truth reveals ! The seed of friendship bloom not; No leaf can it impart Until it finds a welcome In some congenial heart ! The light of Love can warm not 'Till found some kindred shrine ; And then springs immortal, And shows itself divine !— Thus—thus throughout creation &nbsp; The links of life and birth : Ye speak of Independence,— There is no such thing on earth,— We depend on one another For each comfort we enjoy :— &nbsp; There is nought the heart can foster, That the heart may not destroy ! &nbsp; We depend for our existence On His hand who gives us breath ; We depend upon affection E'en to sooth the hour of death !— Thus—thus throughout creation The links of life and birth ; Ye speak of Independence,— Tnere is no such thi...
Domestic Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 1 June 1849
Domestic Intelligence. Herrings.—A Sydney journal the other day was lost in wonderment at the notion of the Port Phillip followers of &nbsp; Isaac Walton patronizing the herring fishing, and another has since followed with a lamentation over the enormous sums sent annually from the Australian Colonies for the importation of this arti- cle of luxury from Britain, while there are plenty to be had in the river Yarra Yarra, and benevolently furnishes in- structions for their taking and curing. Both authorities are sadly astray—the herring of the Yarra Yarra is not the herring of commerce, but it yields amuse- ment for both bait and fly-fishing which even old Isaac would not have despised. South Australia. — Considerable changes were about to take place in the official departments of the government of South Australia. Mr. Mundy the Colo- nial Secretary, being required at home in consequence of the severe sickness of a brother ; the Colonial Treasurer, Mr. Finnis, will succeed to ...

THE ELECTORAL FARCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 5 June 1849
THE ELECTORAL FARCE. Mr. Foster, we perceive, has fairly screwed his courage up to the sticking point, and go to Sydney he will, if the electors will have him, in any company, and on any terms. We confess we feel very careless as to the result of the election. If Earl Grey's despatch, published in another column, had, as some imagined, pro- posed leaving the settlement of the electoral Districts of the Province in the hands of the Sydney Legislature the case would have been different, and then Mr. Foster would not have been the man ; but as the case stands, it is of small moment who goes, or whether any body goes at all, and as poor Blatherum is disabled, Mr. Foster may as well be allowed to walk the course. We are glad, however, to see, that the new candidate, has the grace to abjure the pollution tenets which exposed us all to the well-deserved taunt administered by Mr. Cowper, in the debate on the question of the resumption of transportation. If he had not done so, we question wh...
