Domestic Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 18 June 1849

Domestic Intelligence. Turning an Honest Penny. — A writer in the Corio Chronicle, of the 15th instant, says " vulgar report has it that His Honor the Superintendent of Port Phillip is a partner, not only in a squatting station at Western Port, but also in a butcher's shop in Melbourne." (We wish we knew the shop, as we certainly should patronise his Honor to the extent of our unpre- tending chop. Ed. A.) The Harbour Master. — It is said that Capt. Bunbury, R.N., the Harbour Master, has applied for leave of absence for two years, with the intention of proceeding to England. The gallant Captain might almost have spared himself the trouble of making the application : he might have been two years away from his post without anybody missing him. A Settler.—The Legislative Coun- cil has determined, if non-election cannot be crushed, at all events to give a coup de grace to the doings of the real representation farce-players in the way of electing mere franking members of the Curr and Palm...

Orignal Poetry. LINES Spontaneously produced, on perusal of the follow interesting notice in the "Era" of December 17, 1848. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 18 June 1849

Original Poetry   LINES Spontaneously produced, on perusal of the follow . interesting notice in the "Era" of December 17, 1848. "An affecting incident is related by a Donegal Paper. A few nights since, a young boy and his sister returning from Pettigo, homeward, had to cross a mountain. The night was dark and stormy, and they lost their way. Next morning, both were found dead from the exposure. The boy and girl lay side by side; the latter with her arm round her brother's neck, and her flannel petticoat, removed from her own per- son, was wrapped round his feet. Thus did the creature (Angelic creature !) sacrifice her own life, in a vain effort to sustain that of her brother ! Ye poets, whose imagination paints In glowing colours, to a thoughtless world ; Fictitious heroes, heroines, and saints ! Your vain romances with contempt be hurled, Far, far beneath the minstrel's humble lay, Which may by Truth attuned, heroic love dis- play ! Hibernia hail ! Hail Erin's much lo...

THE LICENSING BENCHES. To the Editor of the Argus. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 19 June 1849

THE LICENSING BENCHES. To the Editor of the Argus. Mr. Editor,—We often hear the cry that the consumption of spirituous liquors is rapidly on the increase—and connected with this growing evil, we have heavy complaints against the Li- censing Magistrates—but in the latter case, the cry by no means comes all from one side of the question, as recent circumstances, both in Melbourne and elsewhere, abundantly prove. That an unnecessary number of licensed shops or public houses, for the sale of spirituous liquors, must be hostile to private morals, no one can doubt ; but how is the line defining the proper relative proportion of these licenses to be drawn, and by whom? You will probably reply, by the magistrates undoubtedly. Now, Sir, if my memory deceives me not, a batch of your County Bourke Justices were at no distant period subjected not only to trouble, but to some expense too, for refusing a publican his license ; nay, more, had to grant what they had pre- viously refused ! As licen...

Domestic Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 19 June 1849

Domestic Intelligence.   The Manslaughter Case.—Dr. Kingdom attended at the Police Office yesterday, for the purpose of hearing the decision of the Bench in the manslaugh- ter case, which had created so much in- terest during the past week. Mr. Rus- sell stated, that the Bench had carefully looked over the evidence, and were of opinion that no prima facie case had been made out against the Doctor; they had agreed, however, to send the depo- sitions to Mr. La Trobe for his perusal. Mr. John Stephen said, he was glad of the determination arrived at by the   Bench, and would mention, in order that their worships might know the character of the principal witness for the prosecu- tion, that he had seen Mrs. Loan, on the previous night, in company with two sai- lors ; the trio were intoxicated, and the lady was amusing her two companions by singing a grossly indecent song. This took place in the Market Square at a late hour. Sydney —Captain Innes has been confíim...

ENGLISH NEWS. Arrivals at Sydney, bring English in- telligence to the 8th March, but the files are not complete owing to the ship of latest date, the Emigrant, being ordered into quarantine, measles having broken out on board. We are indebted to the   Sydney Morning Herald for the follow- ing news.   The debate on the motion of the Chancellor of the Exchequer for a grant of £50,000, for the purpose of granting relief to certain Unions in the west of Ireland, was resumed on the 12th February, and called forth the angry de- clamations of the Irish members ; all of them opposing the grant of £50,000 proposed, as a cruel mock upon the ac- tual amount of Irish distress.

OUR NEW CONSTITUTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 19 June 1849

OUR NEW CONSTITUTION. We find the following details of the new Constitutional Act in the London Daily News, of the 5th February, which fully bear out the announcement made in a recent tissue of the forward state of the Separation question:—   The petitions and memorials of the Australian colonists have not been entirely fruitless. The Colonial Office has been moved. A Bill for es- tablishing Legislative Councils in all the British colonies on the Australian continent and Van Diemen's Land has been prepared—is, we are informed, sufficiently matured to be presentid to Parliament immediately The first part of the measure is said to be conceived in a broad and liberal spirit, but there are a number of petty pro- visoes and conditions appended to it which will     go far to neutralize its good effects. This boon from the Colonial Office to Australia reminds one irresistibly of the guineas which good Mrs. Prim- rose gave her daughters for pocket mone...

THE RENEWAL OF TRANSPORTATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 19 June 1849

THE RENEWAL OF TRANSPORTATION The noble and successful stand against pollution which was made in this Pro- vince has been boldly followed up in Sydney. As was arranged, a public open air meeting of the inhabitants was held immediately upon the arrival of the first of the convict ships, Robert Campbell, Esq., presiding, which, not- withstanding the inclemency of the weather, was attended by an immense assemblage. On the motion of Mr. Lamb, M.C., the following protest was unanimously adopted :— We, the free and loyal subjects of Her Most Gracious Majesty, inhabitants of the City of Sydney and its immediate neighbourhood, in pub- lic meeting assembled, do hereby enter our most deliberate and solemn Protest against the tran- sportation of British criminals to the colony of New South Wales. 1st.—Because it is in violation of the will of the majority of the colonists, as is clearly evi- denced by their expressed opinions on this question at all times. 2ndly.—Because numbers among us have ...

PUBLIC SALES OF COLONIAL WOOL. London, February 24. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 19 June 1849

PUBLIC SALES OF COLONIAL WOOL. London. February 24.       The fifth and last series of sales of Colonial wool of the season, commenced on the 7th instant, and concluded this day, consisting of—10,811 bales Australian, 2,458 bales Van Diemen's Land, 6,238 bales Port Phillip, 494 bales South Australian, 6,180 bales Cape ol Good Hope, 435 bales New Zealand, 36 bales Swan River, and 895 bales East Indian. The above unusually large quantity (for the season) was declared for sale under very favourable circumstances, and   the announcement gave satisfaction to every class   of buyers—their stocks being generally exhausted.   During the winter great activity has prevailed in   our manufacturing districts, partly caused by the receipt of large continental cloth orders, in con- sequence of many manufacturing towns in Ger- many and France having ceased operations during the late political excitement, but...

Select Poetry. ADDRESS TO THE CALIFORNIAN ADVENTURERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 19 June 1849

Select Poetry. ADDRESS TO THE CALIFORNIAN ADVENTURERS. A new song, written in the spirit of prophecy, and sung to the tune of " There will ne'er be peace, until Jemmy comes hame." Reflect, ere you venture, adventurers bold, To plough the dread ocean, and scramble for gold. All dust is not gold dust, that brilliantly shines, and hunger may dwell in the midst of gold mines. Iin the land of gold sand, it is said ' yellow Jack,' Gives a gold coloured pelt, but he empties the sack. Like the shade snatching dog who relinquished his beef, You would barter good grub for sharp hunger, and grief. 'Twere a pity such gallant adventurous blades, Should part with sound substance to grapple at shades ; Your bright beaming visions have addled each pate, But all will prove moonshine, alas ! when too late. Californian mud should you venture to rake, In vain will you sigh for a chop or a steak. Altho' a young prophet, I'm free to be sworn, Ye golden fleece seekers shall closely be shorn. When the gold...

Domestic Intelligence. Our First Governor.—Sir Em- merson Tennent, Colonial Secretary of Ceylon, has obtained nine months leave of absence, and returns home to Belfast, Ireland. From private letters we have received from that good town, we will take an even bet he will be the first Go-   vernor of "Victoria," and we heartily pray he may, as he is talented, energetic, independent, and liberal. It is some- thing strange that a Belfast man, in a Belfast paper, is the first to announce the probability of a " towney" being the first   Governor of his adopted country.—Bel-   fast Gazette.— [We shall be well pleased   if our contemporary's anticipations should   prove to be well founded, and it is not unlikely that they may ; but, we beg to inform him that he is mistaken, in sup-   posing a " Belfast towney " the first to   give intimation of the probability of Sir   Emmerson having obta...

SYDNEY. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 19 June 1849

SYDNEY.   (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.)   I am now enabled to state, with certainty,                 that the committee, appointed by the Legislative Council to enquire into Mr. Martin's qualification, have decided una- nimously against that gentleman; and   I expect the report will be brought up to-day. I also hear that the evidence already taken before the Committee on the Corporation Act, has been so conclusive that they have come to the conclusion of recommending the repeal of the Act. Whilst on this subject, I may mention that two of our aldermanic civil magis- trates will not be placed, after the expi- ration of the year, in the Commission of the Peace; I could mention their names but am doubtful how far the law of libel extends. We had an immense attendance at the great protest meeting, yesterday, not withstanding the heavy rain, which...
