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, 12, 1849. THE DISTRICT ELECTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 12 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. 12, 1849. THE DISTRICT ELECTIONS. We could not help feeling some com- miseration for the bona fide electionists, when they were forced to seek the vin- dication of their principles in the elec- tion of such a representative as Dr. Dickson ; and we even found an apology for them, when they were driven to choose, from the ranks of their natural enemies, our present unknowing and unknown representative, Mr. William Macarthur. The ordeal to which they are now to be subjected is, however, more humili- ating still, and small indeed must be the remains, among them, of either public spirit or manly feeling, if they submit to it. Mr. Henry Moor is distinctly and seriously proposed ; there are men blind enough or bad enough to be getting up a requisition to him, and, as may be ex- pected, from the degraded position of the Port Phillip press,...

STOCK MARKET. SALES EFFECTED DURING THE PAST WEEK BY MESSRS BEAR AND SON. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 12 June 1849
STOCK MARKET. SALES EFFECTED DURING THE PAST WEEK BY MESSRS BEAR AND SON. Fat Cattle have been scarce in the market this week, and good quality are now worth from 9s. to 10s. 6d. per 100 lbs. There has been a fair supply of fat wethers ; good quality sold at about 1½d. per lb. Large saled of fat ewes have been made to the melters at from 4s. to 4s. 9d. per head. Store wethers are worth from 4s. 6d. to 5s., and as there are several purchasers in the market, there is a ready sale. Store cattle are still very unsaleable ; mixed herds are worth from 12s. to 15s. each. Horse stock sold at rather advanced prices this week; there have been some large sales during the week. A lot of unbroken colts and fillies, fit for saddle or harness, and some heavy draught stock, averaged about £6 per head; broken in &nbsp; draft horses sold at from 12 to 16 guineas ; useful hacks from 9 to 12 guineas, and rough hacks from 4 to 8 guineas. Working bullocks are very unsaleable ; good ones are worth...
SYDNEY. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 12 June 1849
SYDNEY. &nbsp; (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) We have again a heavy sky this morn- &nbsp; ing, and there is every appearance of &nbsp; another day or two of rain. The con- &nbsp; tinued drought has at length rendered butchers' meat scarce, and a rise of a halfpenny in the pound on the carcass &nbsp; has taken place ; the prices being, for &nbsp; beef 1½d. and mutton 2d. These are &nbsp; retailed at an advance of a halfpenny on the carcass prices. &nbsp; You will see by the reports in the Sydney papers, that the threatened &nbsp; Transportation debate ended in the &nbsp; tamest manner possible, much to the disgust of our anti-transportationists. &nbsp; This is looked upon almost as a triumph &nbsp; by the opposite party, as they urge that the mover was afraid to venture upon a &nbsp; debate on the subject. Such a truckling &nbsp; to the base prejudices of a party, as Mr. Cow...
Original Poetry. A CALIFORNIAN LAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 12 June 1849
Original Poetry. &nbsp; &nbsp; A CALIFORNIAN LAY. &nbsp; &nbsp; Rejoice, rejoice, my rustic muse, This morning's post brings joyful news ; The canvass flutters in the blast, Or idly flaps against the mast ; The canvass that shall waft thee hence, &nbsp; New life and fortune to commence. Throw by your quill, you saucy jade, Go buy a mattock, sieve, and spade, No longer shalt ihou care for sheep, No more wild dogs shall mar thy sleep, For thou shall join the brave and bold, And die, or live possess'd of gold. Though thou couldst melody exhale, &nbsp; As sweet as Sweden's nightingale, The clink of yellow, *lear doubloons, Would gain more praise than all thy tunes. &nbsp; Then Lassie, pack your scanty kist, And set your name upo' the list, Of those who leave this lovely land, For California's shining strand. Ascend the vessel's pitchy side, &nbsp; &nbsp; Invoke the aid of wind and tide, &nbsp; And to that fa...

Domestic Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 12 June 1849
Domestic Intelligence. &nbsp; A Thumper.—Everything in the way &nbsp; of abusing and belying the Melbourne Corporation is fish in the Geelong Adver- tiser's net, and it creates consequently no surprise to find column after column devoted to the subject possessing not even an approach to the truth. In Thursday's issue, hoeever, standing out prominently from the mess of falsehood and misrepresentation, we find it deli- berately stated that the Town Council of Melbourne has, since its formation, dis- tributed upwards of £1,000 for plans of improvements, many of which cannot be undertaken (if at all) for twenty years to come. This is tolerably impudent, considering that, with the exception of the premiums given conjointly with the District Council of Bourke for designs for a Bridge over the Yarra, which led to ihe election of the Prince's Bridge, the Town Council of Melbourne has never given a single sixpence for any plan of improvement whatsoever, and has not, in fact, ...
EDUCATION. To the Editor of the Argus. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 12 June 1849
EDUCATION. To the Editor of the Argus. Sir,—So much has been said and written, on the paramount importance and necessity of education, by men of enlightened and highly cultivated under- standing, that the subject is not much attended to, and almost neglected. From an advertisement which appeared in your paper yesterday, I was induced to at- tend the examination of Mr. Fraser's pupils. The clear and comprehensive &nbsp; manner in which most of the students responded to the several queries from the Latin Grammar dazzled my understand- ing. The whole proceeding so far as I could judge, met the approbation of the many ladies and gentlemen who honoured the examination with their presence. It is to be hoped that Mr. Fraser's plan will be speedily adopted by other schools. It carries with it many powerful recom- mendations. The parent is allowed every month to be an ear and eye witness of the progress of his children, and without mentioning many others, it tends greatly to excite i...
A PUBLIC DEBT. To the Editor of the Argus. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 12 June 1849
A PUBLIC DEBT. To the Editor of the Argus. Sir,—Supposing the survey of the colony or district of Victoria, completed to a certain extent, say 200,000 acres, on 1st January 1850, the next step would be to open the necessary books in Melbourne, for noting down the various sums deposited in the new fund or national stock. Here, I would remark, that some certain rule would be required in regard to the sums, for which the Government Commissioners should be bound to grant receipts—to come to a proper decision on this point, would be one of considerable nicety, and require mature consideration ; let us assume for the present twenty pounds sterling to be the minimum sum, for which the deposi- tor could claim a receipt. How are the artisans, labourers, &c., to reap any benefit from a system, so hostile to re- ceiving small sums ? In fact, how can it be said to benefit them, alas ! if nothing less than twenty pounds can be deposited or withdrawn at one time? I &nbsp; conceive...
THE PRESS. To the Editor of the Argus. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 12 June 1849
Original Correspondence. THE PRESS. To the Editor of the Argus. Sir—" You will find that three out &nbsp; of every four leading articles which ap- pear in the Daily News, have for their &nbsp; object the defamation of the public and private characters of Councillors Rankin and Murray." This remark was made to me yesterday by a friend, and feeling curious to know whether it was a true one, I looked over the file of the journal to which it had reference, and to my amazement discovered it to be strictly just. Excepting savage attacks upon those gentlemen, I could find nothing in the whole of the issues for the last four or five months, but a dull monotonous round of commercial intelligence, adver- tisements, extracted trifles, and police office paragraphs, the details of which are only fitted for the chaste ears of the &nbsp; idle vagabonds who congregate in that temple of justice. The labour of the management of this Daily appears to be performed principally by...

LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. Friday 1st June, 1849. STANDING ORDERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 12 June 1849

The consideration in Committee, of the Stand- ing Orders, was proceeded with, and on the Council resuming, the Chairman brought up the Code, as amended, which was adopted. IMMIGRATION.
