MELBOURNE MARKET. Monday, June 4, 1849. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 5 June 1849
MELBOURNE MARKET. Monday, June 4, 1849. Grain —Last week we reported that some samples of wheat had realised 4s per bushel. Now we may say that that price is generally given. The market is decidedly on the advance ; oats &nbsp; are also in value, 3s 3d per bushel was paid for a lot yesterday, Barley is selling at 2s 9d per bushel. &nbsp; Flour.—A further rise has taken place in this article; yesterday it reached £11 per 2000lbs first quality, and £10 per ditto for seconds. An- other rise is not considered improbable. Hay.—£2 1Ds per ton, and difficult of sale even at that price. During all this season hay has never yet reached a remunerative price to the growers.

OUR NEW CONSTITUTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 5 June 1849
OUR NEW CONSTITUTION. We have the pleasure of laying before &nbsp; our readers the despatch of Earl Grey, intimating the nature of the Constitu- tions proposed to be conferred on the Australian Colonies by the Bill which we hope has, by this time, become the law of the land. As promised in the " Golden Despatch" the Sydney Council is to form the model for the other Colo- nies, power being given, as then pro- posed, for further amendment by the Local Legislatures. Tlie Despatch, however, speaks for itself :— Downing-street, &nbsp; 31st July, 1848. Sir,—1. I have to acknowledge your Despatch, No. 3, of the 6th of January last, in which you report the steps which you have taken to collect the opinions of the community over which you &nbsp; preside, in relation to the measures proposed by me in my Despatch of 31st July, 1847, and also No 31, of the 2nd February last, enclosing a &nbsp; Petition from a large number of the householders and inhabitants of Sy...

Masonic. — The Brethren of the "Mystic Tie" resident in Melbourne, contemplate the erection of a Masonic Hall, commensurate with the wants and high respectability of the order. The Australia Felix Lodge has taken the ini- tiatory steps in the matter, and arrange- ments are in progress for the purchase of a suitable site. It is to be hoped the de- sirable object may be expeditiously car- ried into effect.

Domestic Intelligence. POLICE OFFICE. — His Worship the Mayor and James Smith, Esq., presided, on Saturday, for the disposal of City cases : John Williams, first appearance for drunkenness, was fined five shillings. &nbsp; —A young Pentonvillain, named Joseph Hall, was charged with vagrancy, &nbsp; having been arrested by constable Smith, on the previous night at a late hour, in the streets. The constable stated that Hall had no means of support, and was one of a gang of idle vagabonds. Con- stable Finnin proved that he had seen the prisoner, in company with two other Pentonvillains, attempting to open the windows of several shops in Bourke-st., at a late hour, some weeks back, upon which occasion he effected his escape. Their Worships sentenced him to three months imprisonment.—A farmer resid- ing at Woodstock, was fined £5, or, in de- fault of payment, fourteen days imprison- ment, for an offence against public decency in Elizabeth Street, on the 1st instant.— Thom...
BELFAST. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 5 June 1849
BELFAST. (From our own correspondent.) A hand-bill is posted in town this morning, calling upon the inhabitants to &nbsp; come forward and petition for the removal of Mr Rutledge from the Commission of the Peace.—It is, indeed, high time that something was done in the matter, for the complaints against him are loud and universal, and many of them of a nature demanding investigation. A case which came before the bench on Saturday (of which I enclose a report) will serve to give the public some idea of Mr Rutledge's mode of administering justice.—The case was one of assault, and the offence (a blow with the fist) was sworn to by the complainant; for the defence, a man in the employ of the defendant was called, who swore that he saw the defendant run towards the complainant with his fist clenched and uplifted, threatening to strike, but the defendant's wife called out to him to stop, and he did not strike.—Immediately on hearing this evidence (which itself es- tablishes an assa...
Original Correspondence. To the Editor of the Argus. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 5 June 1849
Original Correspondence. To the Editor of the Argus. Sir,—In my last I brought under your notice the alarming " decision" of the Governor against allowing any person an opportunity of purchasing lands in the &nbsp; intermediate districts until the leases have been issued to the squatters, securing to them the right of pre-emption, and the power of presenting other obstacles to the &nbsp; intending purchasers of land, which will have the effect of deterring most men from attempting to obtain a permanent settlement in these interdicted districts. In the case to which my first letter had particular reference, the Governor's decision will have the effect of entirely defeating the future plans of several individuals, two of them with large fami- lies, whose subsistence depends upon their exertions as cultivators of the soil. I have heard of many other cases, where men who had arrived in the colony with the means of purchasing and occupying 200 or 300 acres of land, and ot...
Superintendent's Office, Melbourne, 28th May, 1849. CROWN LANDS WITHIN THE SETTLED DISTRICTS. (LEASES BY AUCTION.) [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 5 June 1849
Superintendent's Office, Melbourne, 28th May, 1849. CROWN LANDS WITHIN THE SETTLED DISTRICT'S. (Leases by Auction.) HIS Excellency the Governor directs it to be notified for the information of all persons concerned, that Leases of the hereunder described portions of Land which have been applied for under the 28th Section of the Regulations of the 29th March, 1848, will be put up to auc- tion at the time and place mentioned, and upon the conditions set forth in the Re- gulations in question. 2. Further information respecting the Lands can be obtained from the Surveyor in charge, and respecting the conditions from the Sub-Treasurer, Melbourne, and at the Police Office at Melbourne. 3. The upset price of each lot is ten shillings per section of 640 acres, in the Lease for one year commencing 1st Jan- uary, 1849. 4. The full price bid for each lot must be paid down at the time of sale ; in failure of which, or if not bid for, the lands will become open to selection for Lease without com...
SYDNEY. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 5 June 1849
SYDNEY. [From our own correspondent.] &nbsp; There is absolutely nothing stirring in town to-day ; every thing even to the weather being dull. We have had a de- lightful day's rain, and a considerable quantity also fell yesterday. There must have been much rain up the country as the Port Phillip Mail has not yet come in, though due to-day, but whether from the bad state of the roads, or from the flooding of some of the rivers on the route, I have not been yet able to ascertain. The Windsor Mail was stopped this morning near Parramatta, and the pockets of the passengers were cleared out, one of them losing upwards of £100 in cash. The thieves being satisfied with their booty, did not touch the bags. I can state confidently that Mr. Cow- per's Transportation Motion will not come on to-day ; there being a dinner at Government House, to which members are anxious of getting away early. May 22, 1849.

The Argus. I am in the place where I am demanded of conscience to speak the truth, and therefore the truth I speak, impugn it whose list." TUESDAY, JUNE, 5, 1849. OUR BLUNDERING CONTEMPORARIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 5 June 1849
The Argus I am in the place where I am demanded of conscience to speak the truth, and therefore the truth I speak, impugn it whoso list." TUESDAY, JUNE, 5, 1849. OUR BLUNDERING CONTEM- PORARIES. We question whether there is on the face of this habitable globe, another unfor- tunate journalist so completely beset as we are with incorrigibly stupid contem- poraries, and forced to devote so much valuable time and space to the wearisome task of guarding the public against being led astray by their endless blunders. During the three days of silence to which we have been hitherto accustomed, it has constantly happened that some absurd bugbear has been raised, which it has taken the best portion of the space devoted to our leading matter to destroy. Instead of being able to direct our attention to matters of real utility and public interest, we have had to devote to the correction of our public blun- derers, nearly the whole of our " long twaddle," as our prosy, rigmarole leaders are most ...

CRIMINAL SESSIONS. IT is ordered, that a Criminal Sessions and General Gaol Delivery of the Su- preme Court of New South Wales, for the District of Port Phillip, be holden at the Court House, La Trobe-street, in the Town of Melbourne, on Monday the eighteenth day of June now next ensuing, at the hour of Ten o'clock in the fore- noon, at which all parties concerned are requested to give their attendance.

SUPREME COURT.—In Banco. (Before His Honor Mr. Justice A'Beckett, Resident Judge.) &nbsp; Saturday, June 2, 1849. &nbsp; The Queen v. Laing.—Mr. Croke, Crown Prosecutor, said he appeared in this case on behalf of the Crown to sup- port a demurrer to the plea of justification filed by the defendant, Mr. Laing, upon an information for intrusion at the suit of the Queen, under the Act 4 William IV, No. 12, commonly known as the Act for making, opening, improving and altering, the public roads of New South Wales, and also for opening streets in the said colony. That Act empowers the Go- vernor with the advice of the Executive Council to declare it expedient, when he thought proper, to open roads in the colony. His Honor would see that the &nbsp; Act imposed a burden on the property of inhabitants, not only on the lands of &nbsp; individuals, but also on the lands of the &nbsp; Crown. It was unnecessary to state, that an Act of that description whi...
EARLY SHOP CLOSING. To the Editor of the Argus. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 5 June 1849
EARLY SHOP CLOSING. To the Editor of the Argus. Sir,—As the duty expressed in this subject, is one of no ordinary importance, its consideration ought not to be passed over lightly, by the public at large, whose opinion, if interested in the well-being of a considerable number of respectable and well conducted young men, would have great weight in convincing their em- ployers, of the unreasonableness of pro- tracting their hours of business, to such an extent as to preclude to their assistants the possibility of enjoying sufficient op- portunities wherewith to improve their minds, or to indulge in such exercises as would be well fitted to conduce to their real happiness and comfort. In Great Britain, of late, the question of early shop closing has been much agitated, not only in large commercial cities, but in more diminutive and less populous towns, with triumphant suc- cess. There, those sallow complexioned and apparently dejected mortals, who were in the habit of dragging out a mo...

Select Poetry. THE INNER MAN. A Corporation Song. The Inner Man ! The Inner Man ! To cherish him's the wisest plan Rather than let the stomach lack I always used to stint my back. Less dear to me the outward than The Inner Man, the Inner Man. With meat galore and drink to spare, I little reck of what I wear ; So that it keeps me from the cold &nbsp; &nbsp; I care not if my garb is old ; But I endow with all I can The Inner Man, the Inner Man. I scorn the fool who hungry goes, &nbsp; To flaunt in fashionable clothes ; In my opinion he's an ass To dress who'd sacrifice his glass. And wrong for outward husk and bran The Inner Man, the Inner Man ! Punch's Pocket Book.
