Original Correspondence. To the Editor of the Argus. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 18 June 1849
Original Correspondence. To the Editor of the Argus. Sir,—If you deem the following a suit- able inquiry, relative to the paragraph in the Herald of the 15th instant, (in which we, the Editor, states that, upon Mr. Ballingall officially calling for payment of the Town rate, we positively refused to do so) will you please publish it ? To the Editor of the Morning Herald. Sir,—In your publication of the 15th June, you state that Mr. Ballingall offi- cially called upon us yesterday, request- ing us to pay the Town rate, which we positively refused to do. As your example will, doubtless, be followed by many, will you, as Editor of the Morning Herald, please to state your reasons for refusing to pay the rate. I would, willingly, adopt your plan, but I feel a misgiving, that I have, in some way, entailed upon myself the said rate by giving my vote to men who were considered fit and proper persons to re- present the burgesses of Melbourne. If there is a hole to creep out of, pray Mr. Edito...

POLICE OFFICE. Friday, 15th June, 1849. Before Councillor Russell and Drs. Playne and Wilmot. THE SECOND CHARGE OF MANSLAUGH- TER AGAINST THE SURGEON OF THE ' BRITISH EMPIRE.' The Police-office, as on the preceding day, was crowded with persons anxious to hear the investigation of the second charge of manslaughter preferred against Dr. Kingdom, Surgeon Superintendent of the British Empire.

The defendant on entering the Court, resumed the seat occupied by him on the preceding day. Mr. Paynter intimated to the bench &nbsp; that he appeared for the prosecution. Mr. Stephen, defendant's advocate, requested to know for whom Mr. Paynter appeared? It was a question he was entitled to put, as it was well known that a conspiracy existed on board the British Empire, particularly among the officers (for a reason which he would explain afterwards) against the Doctor ; and it ...

The Argus. (Published Daily.) 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." MONDAY, JUNE, 18, 1849. THE DAILY AT LAST. At length, we have the supreme felicity of making our first daily bow to the Port Phillip public. To-day, we are enabled to put aside the only bar to our claim to the title of the leading journal of this district. Many obstacles and disappointments have prevented us from starting in our new career so early as we had anticipated, and even now our arrangements are so far incomplete, that we shall not be quite as uniform and regular in our typographical appearance as we could wish, but this, too, shall be rectified before long, and we know enough of the indulgent dispositions of our friends, to presume upon their good temper in a far greater matter than this amounts to. Thus, then, the City of Melbourne numbering some 20,000 inhabitants, and the District of Port Phillip con- taining a pop...
