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." FRIDAY, JUNE, 8, 1849. THE PORT PHILLIP GOLD FIELD. As an appropriate sequel to our remarks in a late number respecting California, we take advantage of a comparative lull in the misdoings of our brethren, to consider a subject which has long required a little of our attention. We allude to the question of the genuine- ness of a discovery which we some time since had the pleasure of announcing, in the shape of a gold mine in the neigh- bourhood of the Pyrenees. The high excitement which that announcement caused has gradually died away ; the eager, but desultory and unsystematic attempts to follow up the discovery have ceased ; and the whole affair is being quietly disposed of by superficial ob- servers as a puzzle or a mystery, or denounced altogether as a hoax, by such as are more than usually thick- headed, or induced by jealousy to mis- state ...

SYDNEY. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 8 June 1849

SYDNEY.   (From our own correspondent.) Our Central Criminal Court commenced its sittings, this morning, with a rather heavy calendar, there being 30 prisoners, of whom, 3 are charged with wilful murder ; 1 with wounding with intent to murder ; 3 with Manslaughter ; 1 with rape ; 2 with burglary ; 1 with forgery ; 1 with passing a forged order ; 2 with horse stealing ; 7 with robbery ; 8 with stealing ; and 1 with receiving stolen property. Of the civil condition of the prisoners, 2 were born in the Colony ; 8 came free ; 13 were free by servitude, 2 were V. D. L. expirees ; and 5 were Ticket of Leave holders. There was no case tried before the court to-day, that would be likely to interest your readers. A charge of stealing has been prefer- red against the well-known John Terry Hughes, Henry Hughes, his son, and another person of the name of Kinnear. The prosecutor, Mr. Donald Beatson, stated, that on the 28th ultimo, he went to Chamber's public house, in Pitt-street, ...
