To the President, Vice-Presidents, and Committee of the Mechanics' Institute. [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 9 February 1847
To the President, Vice-Presidents, and Committee of the Mechanics' Institute. GENTLEMEN,-As a member of the above Institution, I wish to remark on two new regula- tions proposed and carried at the recent annual meeting: the first imposing an entrance fee of five shilling;, on operatives, and of ten shillings on other persons; and the second enforcing a yearly payment in advance of the amount of subscription, instead of a quarterly one as here- tofore. Now, in the first place, I object to these alter- ations, as establishing a distinction, especially invidious and mischuivous in popular societies, of grade, [for it is desiraole, in my opinion, that every one should meet on the floor of tile ¡Me- chanics' Hall on an equality, and not as the ten shilling class, number one; or the five shilling class, number two. I musi also strongly and definitely prolest against these rules, as having an undisguised tendeucy to exclude-a tendency irreconcilable and out of keeping with the nature and d...

CAPE OF GOOD HOPE. (From the Sydney Morning Herald.) [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 9 February 1847
CAPE OF GOOD HOPE. .(From the Sydney Morning Herald.} ^VE have Cape papers up to the 4th December and the news by them is rather satisfactory. The predatory war with the Kufirs had ceased, an arrangement having been made for the ad- justment of differences, and the Rev. Henry Cal- derwood (a missionary) was appointed to be Commissioner for the Gaikia tribes in British Kufirland. This agreement does not seem at all popular, and it is expected the Kafirs frill soon violate the terms of their agreement. Copper mining speculations were commenced at the Cape, and with every probability of suc- cess. There was a partial blight in the wheat crops at.the Cope, but not to a large extent.

THF NEW SOUTH WALES LEGISLATURE: THE DINNER QUESTION. (From the Colonial Gazette, September 19.) [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 9 February 1847
THF, NEW SOUTH WALES LEGISLA- TURE: THE DINNER QUESTION. (From the Colonial Gazette, September 19.) Tin; Speaker's dinners, said Mr. Wentworth, in a debate in the New South Wales Legislative Council, which we this day publish, ure an es- tablished part of the British constitution. So are the dinners at Bellamy's, if we come to that, and a part which it would be highly conducive to the despatch of business, in the House of Commons, und the respectability of that body, to get rid of. Mr. Wentworths motion to aug- ment thesalnry of the New South Wales Speaker, in order that he might give dinners to members once or twice a week, was received with that good sense and practical judgment which has characterised every proceeding of the Counril (except its contest lor pre-eminence with the Aldermen of Sydney) since its commencement. Air, Cowper, with gentlemanly tact, condemned it in measured but plain language, Air. Lowe's more earnest and impassioned temper led him to denounce it, though t...

To the Editor of the Melbourne Argus. M/a. EDITOR.-Whilst I was daily ex- pecting to see in your columns, the an- nouncement of a public meeting in Mel- bourne, called for the special purpose of affording the purchasers of Government grounds, and the labouring classes, an opportunity of expressing their opinions, on the proposed demoralization of Aus- tralia', by reducing it, in so far as the Middle District is concerned, for the second1 time, to the situation of a penal colony-and in so far as Australia Felix is concerned, for stamping it, for the first time, with that brand of infamy, I was not a little startled, by having put into my hands, a petition numerously signed, requesting the plague spot as a boon ! My blood curdled with indignation against the originators and patrons of this infamous petition-and it was with diffi- culty I retrained from tearing the docu- ment into fragments-but I mastered my feelings, and now denouoce the foul " hole and corner deed," through your colu...
