REVIVAL OF IMMIGRATION. (From the Sydney M. Herald, Jan. 19.) [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 26 January 1847

REVIVAL OF IMMIGRATION. (From the Sydney JIT. Herald, Jan. 19.) We have the gratification of announcing that there is a prospect of the revival of immigration before the end of the present year. The recent announcement of the government that there is sufficient money in the Treasury to pay off the debentures, and thus leave elie land revenue free of debt, has of course attracted the attention of those who are anxious for the revival of immigra- tion, and a few gentlemen resolved to make an effort to induce the Governor to recommend the introduction, during the latter end ol the present year, and the early part of the next, of five thou- sand adult males, with the proportionate number of women and children. Some difference of opi- nion existed as to whether it would be better to recommend his Excellency the Governor not to pay off the debentures, but to appropriate the money now in hand to the introduction of immi- grants, but it was finally considered that that point should be left ...

LATEST FROM ENGLAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 26 January 1847

LATEST PROM ENGLAND. "We glean from our Van Diemen's Land contemporaries the following additional items of English intelligence received by the Pacific from London 19th Octo- ber. The Spanish marriage affair draws nearer and nearer to its final completion1. The Count Bree soii had received from the Queens Isabella and Christina their formal consent to the marriage of the Infanta to the Duke de Montpensier. Her Royal Highness the Infanta confirmed the con- sent already rgiven, and accepted the offer, ex- pressing her happiness to " yield to the desires of her family," and received a portrait of her affi- anced bridegroom, delivered by Count Breeson with "evident satisfaction." The Count dis- tributed ten thousand francs upon the occasion among the poor of Madrid and the servants of the Queen's stables. The royal marriages were to take place on the 10th Oct., the Queen's Birth- day, amid great rejoicings, and under the pro- tection of 12,000 troops. The French Prince lind left Paris f...

Original Poetry. [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 26 January 1847

Original Poetry. Australia, though far from thy shore lies the island, Which gave me my birth and consigned nie to thee ; I love thee as dear as my own native highland; Because thou art plentiful, happy, and free ; But ruin already prepores to deface thee; Thy glory will shortly be laid in the tomb, Oppression will shake thee, and crime will dis- grace thee, Forsooth, because avarice calls for thy doom. In vain has thy bountiful maker arrayed thee, In nature's bright garments perennially green ; The sordid and selfish have sold and betrayed thee, For slavery's breath will soon wither the scene, The groans of the Helot will ring through the city, The wail of distress will be heard in thy streets, And halters and whips will be used without pi'y, And we will be tyrants, and they will be clients. ' ' ' Then shame on the men, found so base as to covet, A sight of degraded humanity's woes ; And infamy light on the slaves who can love it, Though high their pretensions, or costly their clot...
