REVIVAL OF IMMIGRATION. (From the Sydney Morning Herald, Jan. 23.) [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 2 February 1847
REVIVAL OF IMMIGRATION. (From the. Sydney Morning Herald, Jan. 23.) We alluded on Tuesday to the circumstance of I some gentlemen having waited upon the Governor to induce bim io recommend the immediate re- vival of immigration ; and that his Excellency expressed himself favourable to the object.-. I Yesterday a deputation waited upon his Excel- lency with h formal address on the subjaut, when they received a reply, which, with the address, we give below. The address was signed by four hundred and ninety-two persons of all ranks in life, members of council, clergymen, magistrates, merchants, shopkeepers, mechanics, and labour- ers ; and as it is supposed that a strong expression of public opinion will have a beneficial effect in England, by supporting the Governor's recom- mendation, it is intended to ciiculate the address through the colony for additional signatures, and j this will afford many who have been churged with opposing transportation merely to keep-a monopoly of labour i...

LATEST FROM SYDNEY. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] January 22, 1847. [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 2 February 1847
LATEST FROM SYDNEY. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] January 22, 1847. I had a conversation a few days ago, with the head of one of our Departments relative to the new settlement of North Australia. The whole affair seems to have been got up in great haste at home, and is most imperfect. You will have seen that the Lord Auckland, with the superintendent, &c., has gone, but the Thomas Lowry, the second ship, is not likely to go for some time. She is to take stores, &c.; but the Commissariat scarcely &nbsp; know what to put on board of her. It does not appear that Colonel Barney is very sanguine as to his new charge; he will not remain more than &nbsp; six months if he can get relieved; of course he &nbsp; was obliged, whatever his misgivings, after the recent trip, to assume the superintendence. I understand that the Colonel wanted Lewis, our Colonial Architect, to obtain leave of absence here, in order that he might go down and lay out the town; ...
