THE LICENSING BENCH. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 12 June 1849

THE LICENSING BENCH.   It was our duty, a short time since, to step forward in vindication of the new course of procedure adopted by ur licensing magistrates, in attempting to limit the number of public houses in the City, and throughout the Distric. So bold a step had exposed the bench to considerable odium, among the appli- cants for new licenses ; and the prospect of a few additional subscribers, and advertisements announcing new ar- rangements, was amply sufficient to bribe our contemporaries into condem- nation of a course of such obvious wisdom and expediency, as in any other place would have led to universal ap- proval. The laws of free trade were triumphantly referred to, (on the prin- ciple of the devil quoting scripture,) in proof of the impropriety of any attempt to prevent our streets from becoming thronged with drunkards, and all our thoroughfares mere lines of public houses—as if these laws, wholesome and righteous as they are, were fit to be carried out, ...

MORE BLUNDERING. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 12 June 1849

MORE BLUNDERING. Nothing daunted by his failure to dis- franchise the city, our doughty contem- porary, the Daily News, comes out, on Friday, with the startling discovery that " there never yet has been an election for the District of Port Phillip ;" that all present and past members of the Legislative Council for the District of Port Phillip have been illegally elected, and, consequently, that " unwittingly the doctrine of non-election has been carried out to the fullest extent." Familiar as we are with our contem- porary's vagaries, the first shock of this appalling announcement literally took away our breath, and we did not regain our composure until on examining the ground upon which this grand discovery rested, we found it was nothing more than one of our contemporary's usual blunders, and felt that it was in our power, once more, to ease the public apprehensions, and again enfranchise the District, as we had just done the City. The Daily News arrives at the startling conclusio...

THE LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. The crowded state of our columns forces us to defer the publication of our cus- tomary report of the proceedings of the Legislative Council until our next issue. Fortunately the business, though of considerable importance, is chiefly of a routine character, and consequently not of pressing interest.

Original Correspondence. To the Editor of the Argus. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 15 June 1849

Original Corresponence. To the Editor of the Argus, Sir—I observe in " Tommy's paper" of this morning under the side heading, "The Dutch Auctioneer," a report of a discussion at the Police Office yesterday, between the presiding justices, Messrs. Hull and Condell, and that renowned " mare's nest hunter," Mr John Stephen, as to whether Melbourne is a city or a town ; when it appears the magistrates held our Southern Metropolis to be duly and truly a City, both in a civil and ecclesiastical point of view, and decided that in all cases which should come before them, they would so regard it. Can you inform me whether any such discus- sion, as I have referred to, really took place? and if so, why it is suppressed by your friend " Buggins" and the modern Columbus who pre- sides over the Daily News, in their respective issues of this morning ? ALIQUIS.     14th June, 1849 [Our correspondent will see from a paragraph that appears in another column, that the discus-...

Original Poetry. "ALL IS NOT GOLD THAT GLITTERS." [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 15 June 1849

Original Poetry. "ALL IS NOT GOLD THAT GLITTERS."   One night, I'm not quite sure of the date, But that's no matter; 'twas growing late— Alone in a comfortless room I sat, With never a friend whose social chat The gloom of the place might relieve. 'Twas about the first of the month I believe; But be the year and the date what it may,   On the night in question I fell     A wondering on the talk of the day ; And what I wondered I'll tell.     I wondered if all the tales that are told   About people finding great lumps of gold Were true, and whether the finders had sold Themselves to the Devil ; or if it was chance That led the good folks such a fruitless dance. About this I'm in doubt, And cannot make out, For the life of me, which supposition to scout.   That gold has been found   In lumps flat and round, Some mix'd with quartz, and other lumps pure, Some stoutly affi...

PUBLIC NUISANCES. To the Editor of the Argus. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 15 June 1849

PUBLIC NUISANCES. To the Editor of the Argus. Sir,—Allow me, through your co- lumns, to draw the attention of the Mayor and Chief Constable to two very great nuisances which are allowed to exist in this town. It would be in vain, I believe, for a private individual to ask any member of the police force to notice or prevent these nuisances, as they are generally inclined to wink at anything from which they expect no blood-money, or reward, to repay them for their exertions : and, instead of act- ing for the public good, they are, in nine cases out of ten, looking sharp after their own pockets. The most frivolous charges are often preferred against individuals, and the time of the Magistrates frittered away in listening to cases that should never have been noticed, while half the town is alarmed by the depredations of the most case- hardened villains, and robberies are passed over by these worthies with an expression of wonder at who could have committed them. Of the nuisances to whic...

SYDNEY. (FROM OUR A OWN CORRESPONDENT.) [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 15 June 1849

SYDNEY. (from our own correspondent.)   Mr. Stirling, the grocer, of George street, was tried at the Assizes to-day, before his Honor the Chief Justice, for personating Mr. Stirling, of the North Shore, Inspector of Distilleries, and voting in his name at the late election for the County of Cumberland, on the 28th March last. Mr. Lowe appeared for the defence. The case as charged in the indictment was fully proved, and Mr. Lowe in defence urged that the question proposed by the Electoral Act, " Are you the person whose name is signed to the voting paper?" clearly contemplated that any mistake made in the Electoral List might be of no avail to debar an elector from voting, the question else would have been, " Are you the person described in the Electoral List ; " and also that Mr. Stirling hav- ing a qualification for a vote was entitled to presume that his was on the list until he had been shown to the contrary. When I left the Court the Attorney General was addressing ...

Domestic Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 15 June 1849

Domestic Intelligence. Geelong Incorporation Committee. —On Monday afternoon, a meeting of the Incorporation Committee was held at the Victoria Hotel, Dr. Thomson in the chair, for the purpose of explaining more fully, to the newly-returned Member, J. F. L. Foster, Esq., the requirements and wants of Geelong. The Incorporation of Geelong was the first question discus- sed, which was rather lengthy, and a draft of a Bill for the same presented to him. The question of the Boundary was next proposed, which was to extend from the Waurn chain of ponds to Cowie's Creek, Point Henry, and to the junction of the Marrabool. Mr. Foster thought tlhat they were asking rather tloo much, but that he would get it as ex- tended as possible. As regarded the Bill, he thought it would be best to take it to the Council as it was, which was finally agreed to. Mr. Foster wished to know if they had not some project in view respecting the bringing of good water into town ; he thought that pipes leading into...
