CALIFORNIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 20 June 1849
CALIFORNIA. Ever since the extraordinary tidings of this wonderful country first arrived, we have endeavoured to warn our readers of the state of things which was likely to occur there, and the following extract from a recent letter, seems fully to bear out our predictions. The remainder of the letter, with the usual dazzling de- tails, appears in another column, but we give this portion separately, as we wish to give fair warning to such as are suffering from an attack of the diseased appetite for gold, of the state of things they may expect, in the country to which they are hastening. The accounts by the last arr¡val from Cali- fornia are exciting, but deplorable. The dates from San Francisco are to the 25th of December. The following extracts contain the pith of the intelligence : — " Since I last wrote to you, affairs have been getting worse. We have no government, either civil or military, and the country is full of law- less men, who are committing shocking out- rages. Murders...

Select Poetry. TIME TO ME. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 20 June 1849
Select Poetry. TIME TO ME. Time to me this truth hath taught, 'Tis a truth that's worth revealing:—- &nbsp; More offend from want of thought, Than from any want of feeling. If advice we would convey, There's a time we should convey it ; If we've but a word to say, There's a time in which to say it ! Oft, unknowingly, the tongue &nbsp; Touches on a chord so aching, That a word, or accent wrong, Pains the heart almost to breaking; Many a tear of wounded pride, Many a fault of human blindness, Had been soothed or turned aside, By the quiet voice of kindness ! &nbsp; Many a beauteous power decays, Though we tend it e'er so much : &nbsp; Something secret on it preys, &nbsp; Which no human aid can touch ! So, in many a lovely breast, Lies some canker grief concealed; That if touched, is more opprest! Left unto itself—is healed ! Time to me this truthhbath taught, &nbsp; 'Tis a truth that's worth revealing :— More offend from want of thought!...
ENGLISH. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 20 June 1849
ENGLISH. The Navigation Laws.—The re-intro- dunction of Mr. Labouchere's scheme for modifying the Navigation Laws exhi- bited another Ministerial weakness. Mr. Baines, the Poor Law President, is allowed to treat the Government mea- sure as an "open question." We are not aware that Mr. Baines has put forth any very commanding arguments against the repeal of the Navigation Laws; and until he do show the reasons for his resolve, it is to be inferred that he acts on the very obvious reason—that he is member for Hull. Ministers are in earnest about the repeal of the Naviga- tion Laws—so they say ; only they don't wish to create alarm by total repeal ; they are so much in want of creditable recruits that they can't forego the advantage of securing Mr. Baines; and it is so desirable to retain the Hull seat for general Whig purposes, that they will wink at his going over to the enemy on the Navigation conflict—Atlas.

LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. &nbsp; Tuesday, 12th June. The Speaker took the Chair at a quarter past three o'clock. PORT PHILLIP MEMBERS. &nbsp; The Speaker informed the house he had re- ceived a letter from the Colonial Secretary stating that Mr. Palmer, one of the members for Port Phillip having rsteounced his seat, a writ had been issued to supply the vacancy. RULES OF COURT. The Colonial Secretary laid upon the table the Rules of Court made by the Judges in Sydney, and the Resident Judge at Melbourne, together with certain despatches relating to the same. STATISTICS. &nbsp; The Colonial Secretary laid upon the table the usual Statistics of the Colony. The Colonial Statistics he stated, had not been completed, owing to their having to await returns from Port &nbsp; Phillip. NATIVE POLICE. &nbsp; &nbsp; The Colonial Secretary presented two reports, one from the Native Police at Port Phillip, and the other from the detachment of that force on...
MISCELLANEOUS. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 20 June 1849
MISCELLANEOUS. "They Can't Get Out."—It has been observed by Leigh Hunt that there are two, and but two, classes of the com- munity—"newspaper editors, and cab drivers," who never may indulge them- selves with a holiday. In a recent lecture at Boston, United States, Mr. R. W. Emmerson said of England : " Pluck is the national cha- racteristic—the cabman, the porter, the nobleman, the bishop, and even the wo- men have it ; the press runs over with it." " Did your fall hurt you?" said one Patlander to another, who had fallen from the top of a two-stoary house. "Not in the laste, honey, 'twas stoppin' so quick that hurt me. Blessed is the man who has no mo- ney, as he is not obliged to mend the holes in his pockets. Blessed is the horse whose owner is poor, as he cannot afford to buy a whip. Blessed is the woman whose husband has a wooden leg, as she will have but &nbsp; one stocking to knit. &nbsp; Blessed are they who are ignorant, for they are happy in thinking that ...
POLLUTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 20 June 1849
POLLUTION. The announcement that a vessel.was actually to leave England with convicts for this port, on the 5th April, has ex- cited considerable apprehension in the community, notwithstanding the Gover- nor's pledge that no convicts shall be &nbsp; landed in Port Phillip, for, it will be recollected that his Excellency, on his return to Sydney, backed out of his promise to the people of Port Phillip, to the extent of saying that it was only convicts under sentence that were to be sent on to Sydney, but exiles and other conditionally pardoned criminals would be landed in the province. We are happy to have it in our power to allay such apprehensions. The exile system is abandoned, and no convicts are to be sent out under the present system of transportation in a state of entire freedom, and consequently none of the class which the Governor told the Sydney folks, would still be landed in Port Phillip. We obtain this im- portant and highly gratifying informa- tion from the spee...

&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; The Argus. (Published Daily.) I am in the place where I am demanded of conscience &nbsp; &nbsp; to speak the truth, and tberefore the truth I speak, impugn it whoso list." WEDNESDAY, JUNE 20, 1849 SEPARATION. THE Sydney Morning Herald receives the intelligence of the separation of Victoria from New South Wales, with the following amusing growl :— " We learn from the English papers that the Bill for the separation of Port Phillip from the colony of New South Wales, and its government under the name of Victoria, has been prepared. The constitution of Victoria is to be much the same as that by which this colony is at present governed. In the Legislative Council one third fl the members are to be nominated by the Governor. The establishments of government, justice, and religion, are provided for by schedules not subject to the control of the Legislature. The management of the customs is to continue an Imperial m...
GOLD DIGGINGS & WASHINGS, AT CALIFORNIA. (From the Liverpool Mercury, March 6[?]) [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 20 June 1849
GOLD DIGGINGS & WASHINGS, AT CALIFORNIA. (From the Liverpool Mercury, March 6 ) The United States revenue laws are now in force here, and will yield an income of, say $450,000 the ensuing year, and perhaps more ; and four-fifths of this amount will be collected at this port.— Much dissatisfaction exists, at the pay- nient of such a tax, on the part of the inhabitants, without either a government or a representation. This feeling is gaining ground from day to day. " I wrote you a very long semi-offi- cial letter, some time since, (Sept. 18,) going at length into the history of the gold mines. I trust that you have re- ceived that communication, as it accom- panied other official papers, all of which, I am informed, were correctly sent from Mazatlan to Vera Cruz, about six weeks since. I have only time now to inform you that everything in that letter has been more than realized, up to this date. The gold mines continue to be as rich as before, although the rainy season has cau...
SUPREME COURT. CROWN SIDE. (Before His Honor the Resident Judge) Tuesday, June 19, 1849. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 20 June 1849
SUPREME COURT. Crown Side. &nbsp; (Before His Honor the Resident Judge) Tuesday, June 19, 1849. His Honor took his seat punctually this morning, when the following jury was impanelled. &nbsp; &nbsp; Jury.—Messrs. W. H. Tuckett, fore- man, George Stanway, John Tickle, Tho- mas Selwyn, Stephen Toogood, George Turnbull, George Thwaites, John Tighe, D. Tracey, John Sullivan, William Tur- ner, and W. M. Tennent. STEALING FROM THE PERSON. Patrick Mead was indicttd for stealing from the person of John Cooper, on the 8th of June, thirteen one-pound notes. Mr. Stawell appeared for the prisoner. The prosecutor had been drinking at the Black Horse, and afterwards went to the prisoner's house ; he lost his money, and could not say who found it ; all he knew was that he lost it. Several ques- tions were put to the witness, to which he gave no satisfactory answer, and ap- peared to have forgotten the circum- stances. Mr. Croke.—The fact is, your Honor, he doesn't want to k...
SURGEONS SUPERINTENDENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 20 June 1849
SURGEONS SUPERINTENDENT. A late case which had been enveloped in much mystery having been fully enquired into, and dismissed by the constituted authorities, we are at liberty to comment fully upon what trans- pired in the course of the evidence ad- duced. Whatever the opinions of what &nbsp; may be considered necessary to consti- tute manslaughter, but one feeling can have been excited by these cases provided we are to place the slightest foundation upon a train of evidence tolerably conclusive, care- fully put together and delivered, and borne out by corroboralive circum- stances of undoubted authority. That feeling, in all rightly constituted minds, must amount to the conviction that a case was made out of the most heartless neglect and cruelty, evinced towards that sex whose weakness constitutes to ordinary natures, its most forcible claim, at an hour too when of all others, there is the least excuse for anything approaching unkindness or neglect. That such conduct was ad...
Domestic Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 20 June 1849
Domestic Intelligence. &nbsp; &nbsp; The New Zealand Free Church Colony.—At the Scotch settlement of New Edinburgh, where it is intended that Presbyterians should form the bulk of the settlers, it is found that by re- emigration from the adjoining settle- ments, and the neighbouring colonies, the members of the Scotch Church will soon be less numerous than those of other religious sects, and the original object for which it was established will be thereby in a great measure fustrated. —Sydney Morning Herald. The Territorial Revenue. — The S. M. Herald states that, taking the centesimal ratio of charge to income, we find, that, in the last year of Sir G. Gipps, the cost to the territorial revenue of survey, sale and management, was 16 per cent of the income ; while in the third year of Sir Charles Fitz Roy it was 33 per cent.; or more than double ! This is, certainly, coming it rather too strong. A Novel Doctrine.—During the trial, at Sydney, of Mr. Stirling, the groc...
