Domestic Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 20 June 1849
Domestic Intelligence. Mr. Croke's Pig.—There is no more pleasant fiction about the vaunted constitution under which we live,than that which endeavours &nbsp; to persuade us, there is an equal law for the rich and for the poor. We occasionally endeavour to advocate the attempt of, at all events, keeping up appearances in that way, but in this mammon- worshipping world, we do so with a perfect con- viition of the hopelessness of the task. But when indecent distinction is still further exaggerated by &nbsp; &nbsp; a law-maker becoming a law-breaker, we cannot help recording our indignation at the occurrence. Visitors to the flag staff will, like ourselves, have frequently observed a large pig luxuriating in the sunshine, close to the premises of the Crown Prosecutor, and, also like ourselves, we have no doubt that they felt disposed to ask with our dear departed friend Mr. Hydes, " Whar d'ye come from ? " " Who d'ye belong to? " &c. We can &nbsp...

TRUST PROPERTY. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 21 June 1849
TRUST PROPERTY. We perceive by the report of the pro- ceedings of the Legislative Council, which appeared in our last number, that on Tuesday last Mr. Darvall, member for &nbsp; Bathurst, was to move for leave to bring &nbsp; in a Bill to authorise the investment of &nbsp; trust monies in Government securities, &nbsp; and in certain cases the payment of such monies into the Supreme Court. Mr. Darvall's Bill is intended to sup- ply a very serious defect in the law of the Colony, but we are inclined to think something more is necessary to effect all that is wanted. The law of England re- &nbsp; quires also to be altered. At present a &nbsp; large amount of trust property belonging to parties in the Colonies, is retained in England, and a numerous class of most eligible emigrants is prevented from com- ing out to the Colony, from inability to in- vest trust funds in Colonial securities. It &nbsp; that as the English law at present...

THE CATASTROPHE AT GLASGOW. (From the Times, February 20.) Glasgow, Sunday. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 21 June 1849
THE CATASTROPHE AT GLAS- GOW. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; (From the Times, February 20 . ) &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Glasgow, Sunday. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; We lament to announce one of the most appalling events which ever took place in the west of Scotland, and whichoc- &nbsp; curred in the Theatre Royal, Dunlop-st., last night. About eight o'clock, while the com- pany was concluding the first act of the drama of the " Surrender of Calais," the alarm of fire was given, from the upper gallery ; and it turned out, in reality, that a lighted paper (believed to have been thrown down by a person after ig- niting his pipe) had come in contact with an escape of gas, and produced a small flame, but it was so insignificant that it was extinguished by the persons in the vicinity. At first there was a slight commotion visible throughout the house, and those in the boxes, pit, and lower gallery, kept their seats. ...
Domestic Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 21 June 1849
Domestic Intelligence. The Precedence Controversy. The subject of the precedence given by Earl Grey to the prelates of the Church of Rome in the Colonies, was brought under discussion in the House of Com- mons, on the 8th of February, by Sir R. &nbsp; H. Inglis, on motion for certain docu- ments connected therewith. It will be recollected that Earl Grey, in his circular &nbsp; letter to the Governor of the Colonies, said, that, " as Parliament had, by the Charitable Bequests Act, formally recog- nized the rank of the Irish Roman Ca- tholic prelates, by giving them precedence immediately after the prelates of the Es- tablished Church of the same degree, the Roman Catholic archbishops and bishops taking rank immediately after the Pro- testant archbishops and bishops respec- ively, "the government thought it their duty "to conform to the rule thus laid down by the legislature," and the colonial governors were, therefore, instructed, offi- cially, to address the prelates...

Original Poetry. LINES WRITTEN AFTER SPENDING A MISERABLE WET NIGHT NEAR MOUNT SHADWELL.

Original Poetry. LINES WRITTEN AFTER SPENDING A MISERABLE WET NIGHT NEAR &nbsp; MOUNT SHADWELL. " Loud blew the wind, the rain fell fast, The white man yielded to the blast— He laid him down beneath a tree, For weary, weak, and faint was he." Mungo Park's Travels. 'Mongst Africa's benighted race, The trav'ller found a resting place; The swarthy daughter of the land, Stretch'd out her hospitable hand ; The weary Park to shelter led, Prepared his supper and his bed ; And while he slept, in artless strains Pour'd forth her song, to soothe his pains. More kind and hospitable she, The black skinn'd child of Ashantee, Than he whose meanness I record, &nbsp; That Prince of Nabuls' —'s Lord. I laid me down beside his shed, The churl refused me board or bed ; The pelting tempest o'er me past, I found the miser's portal fast, As a beleaguered City's gate— &nbsp; Against the stranger coming late. And does he bear the name of Scot ; This hungry Lord of scab and rot? &...
INSOLVENT COURT. Wednesday, June 20, 1849. Be[?]ore R. W. Pohlman, Esq., Chief Commissioner. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 21 June 1849
INSOLVENT COURT. Wednesday, June 20,1849. &nbsp; &nbsp; Before R. W. Pohlman, Esq., Chief Com- missioner. In the Estate of John Lord.—The Insolvent applied personally for a certificate of discharge. &nbsp; &nbsp; The Commissioner granted the application, as it was unopposed. In the Insolvent Estate of Albrit H. Boys.— In this case the Insolvent also appeared per- sonally to apply for a certificate of discharge. He said as there were no creditors present, it was &nbsp; evident they did not wish to oppose his present application. &nbsp; The Commissioner said creditors could appear &nbsp; to oppose even without lodging a caveat, as had been lately explained by the Resident Judge. In order, therefore, that there might he no doubt in the matter, he would postpone the decision till that day week, in order to afford the creditors an opportunity of opposing the application if they thought necessary.
