ENGLISH INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 23 February 1847

ENGLISH INTELLIGENCE. By the Soubahdar, arrived at Sydney, English news has been received to the 4th November. The following items of intelligence are selected from the sum- maries of our Sydney contemporaries : The distress in Ireland was increasing, and, notwithstanding the arrangements that had been made foi the relief of the people, it was feared there would be the mo3t extensive suffering dur- ing the winter. Although not to the same extent as in Ireland, we regret to find that in the .lighlancls of Scot- land great distress exists from the failure of the potato crop. The Government were making ar- rangements for sending inuizeijneal and other food for distribution. vi* Trade wa9, U9 usual at the commencement of winter, dull, but not particularly so. The price of wool appeared to remain the same as at the conclusion of the last sales.

LATEST FROM SYDNEY. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 23 February 1847

LATEST FROM SYDNEY-. (riiOM dun own coihiespondknt.) I bemmtl. that I hinted on a former occasion at the improbability of Mr. Superintendent Barney's remaining at North Austruliu. 1 see that at Hobait Town there is n report that their new Go- vernor had brought out new instructions. I have no doubt thut there is something chalked out for Bui ney in the Territory of New South Wales. Itisuupposed (for none know positively) by those who ure most aujait, thut so soon ns the land question is settled, there will be a Survey- or's Department beyond the Boundaries, as well I as a Surveyor-General's Department for the Colony of New South Wales ; and it is said that Colonel Barney is to be the head of that (the aewj Department. I may mention that Sir Thomas Mitchell is about to proceed to longland immediately (in all probability to write another book) ; whether he will return or not seems pro blemuiieal, ob he is selling all his most valuable landed properties.

THE DELEGATE. [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 23 February 1847

THE DELEGATE. Now that a crisis in the affairs of the Province has arrived, and there is reason to fear that the moral health of the com- munity may fall a sacrifice to the heart- less cupidity of a small section of the in- habitants, people begin to ask themselves what reliance in to be placed upon "the     Delegate" - the chosen representative in England of the colonists of Port Phillip?   The answer, we are sorry to say, is NONE.!     It will now be remembered, in justice to us, that at the public meeting which made choice of the Delegate, the Editor of this Journal warned the people of this ! - warned them that they were sending home a representative of a section of the community - the squatters - an important section it is true, but still only a section, and told them that they would find there were questions on which Mr. Cuninghame would prove anything but the repre- sentative of this community. And how has the r...
