" What will the Earl Greyites say to this now ?" Melbourne Morning Herald. There is something so refreshing in the style of sweet simplicity, with which our virtuous contemporary asks this question, that we cannot help reverting to it again. " What will the Earl-Greyites say ?" Why that non-election has proved to be what we all along considered and described it—the most masterly and effective policy this province has ever witnessed. Where now are the desperate fore- bodings of indefinite delay in the boon of Separation, which we were told was to be the certain consequence of non- election ? Where now are the gloomy anticipations of forfeiture of free insti- tutions, which we were told was to be the result of the " mad" step of dis- franchising ourselves of a mockery of freedom...

Domestic Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 21 June 1849

Domestic Intelligence.   New Police Office.—The interior fittings of the new Police office are now com- pleted, and business will be transacted there in a few days. Mr. La Trobe will inspect the build- ing on Monday, and make the necessary arrange- ments for accommodating the District and City Courts, appropriating certain rooms for partícular purposes, &c. It is said the office will be occu- pied immediately after his Honor's visit of inspec- tion. Bathurst.—The Governor has di- rected that Mr. Chief Constable Davies, of Bathurst, should be severely reprimanded on one of the charges recently preferred against him, and acquitted on the other two. It is said that he would certainly have been dismissed, had it not been for the strong recommendations of the Police Magistrate.

LAND REGULATIONS. To the Editor of the 'Argus,' per favor of the Geelong Advertiser. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 21 June 1849

LAND REGULATIONS. To the Editor of the 'Argus,' per favor of the Geelong Advertiser. Sir.—A cornmunication appeared in your issue of the 29th ultimo by 'a Colonist,' on which I beg, with your permission, to make a few observatios. ' A Colonist' commences by saying— " that yours appears to be the only onw of the Port Phillip journals that takes a correct view of the public interests with reference to the squatting regula- tions ;" and calling your attention to a " new feature" in these regulations, which he claims the merit of having brought to light. I am not disposed alto- gether to question the singularity of the Argus, in the correctness of its views in the respect pointed out by 'a Colonist;' and I am, at least, very willing to concede that the Argus is, generally speaking, a safer paper to consult on the somewhat vague and ambiguous notices emanating from the local government connected with the Orders in Council, than all its Melbourne contemporaries put together. Your correspo...

COOK'S LAND EMIGRATION. To the Editor of the Argus. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 22 June 1849

COOK'S LAND EMIGRATION. To the Editor of the Argus. Sir,—We have, for a length of time, heard a great deal about the heavy debt of gratitude, under which the district of   Port Phillip lies to the Rev. Doctor   Lang, for his exertions in behalf of emi- gration. If we may judge by the result of his proceedings by that of his pro- posed colony of Cook's Land, I am afraid they will turn out any thing but satisfactory. Now where does the blame   lie? In the main, on public grounds. I would say, with the Colonial Office, Earl Grey and Mr. B. Hawes. But I am afraid that the worthy Doctor has either allowed himself to be duped by his san- guine hopes ; or, if this be not the case, that our home rulers have incurred a weighty responsibility, in allowing him to proceed in his plans, in a full reliance of their support, a support which they had no intention of giving, which I consider to be a more unwar- rantable proceeding, than any British statesman wo...

Original Poetry. ANSWER TO A NEW SONG, [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 22 June 1849

Original Poetry.   ANSWER TO A NEW SONG. Written in the spirit of prophecy, and sung to   the tune of " 'There will never be peace till   Jemmy comes hame."   Thou ill-omened prophet, thou shortsighted seer, Thy vain admonitions cannot keep us here,   While bright Sacramento allures with its ray, 'Tis bootless for ravens to croak in our way.   "All dust is not gold dust"—a truth we all grant; All Priests are not Saints, nor religion all cant. If all dust were gold dust, the dust of thy brains, Well sifted and washed, would pay me for my pains. Could I be contented with copper or lead, The phiz of M'Combie, or Buggins's head, Would furnish a store to avert my design; And thy genius, great poet, itself is a mine. What though yellow fever prevail in that sky? We're all bom to live and we're born but to die. Think poet, how charming, where ingots lie thick, To think one can write his own cheque with a pick.

A GERMAN LIBERAL'S OPINION OF ENGLAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 22 June 1849

A GERMAN LIBERAL'S OPINION OF ENGLAND.   In the Athenæum we find a review of a work called " Reminiscences of my Life," by Gustav Kombst, who died lately in Edinburgh. He had been forced to leave Germany, and take refuge in Switzerland and France, and latterly came to this country. His extreme de- mocratic opinions were considerably modified by what he saw in Britain, and he states his views in the following passage :— " For more than a year past, I have often had in mind, and have told my friends by word of mouth and in writing, how I congratulate myself on the fate that brought me to Great Britain. When I reflect on all that has befallen and in- fluenced me during the last seven years, I can hardly wish—as far as my progre- sive development is concerned—to have been thrown into a different course of circumstances. Like the faithful in the Bible, I may exclaim, ' All has hap- pened to me for the best.' But it was long before the acknowledgment of this could make itself...

CALIFORNIA! WHAT THEN? (From the Spectator.) [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 22 June 1849

CALIFORNIA! WHAT THEN? (From the Spectator.) Say that the accounts from the gold   diggings are exaggerated : what then will happen ? Can all the digging and   boasting go for nothing, as though he Californian fever were a dream and had never been ? On the contrary, you might as soon hope that each particular grain of sand on the banks of the Sacra- mento would return to its place, as that things will resume their condition witlh- out trace of the bouleversement. The gold-fever will leave many a constitu- tion weakened and diseased, avarice has made its mark, crime has been concen- trated, order has been annulled. The settlement of the Pacific coast has been violently hastened — the incessantly spreading Anglo-Saxon race has been hurried across the continent ; but it is anarchy which has settled upon the Ca- lifornian shore, and the population of the Pacific, licentious enough already, has been recruited by a horde of adven- turers and picked ruffians.

MISCELLANEOUS. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 22 June 1849

MISCELLANEOUS. Electricity vice Steam.-Since the discovery by Œrsted of the magnetic power imparted to bars of iron by an electric current traversing copper wire coiled around them, numerous attempts have been made, with various degrees fl success, to move machinery by the enormous force which we have thus at our command. The most remarkable experiments are those of Prof. Jacobi, who, in 1838 and 1839, succeeded in propelling a boat upon the Neva at the rate of four miles an hour. At this time an engine is in process of construction in London, under the direction of Mr. Hjorth, a countryman of the great dis- coverer of electro-magnetism, which the patentee supposes will give a power equal to five horses. We have seen the model which certainly embraces many new features that promise to render the application more effective than it has been hitherto. One of the electro-mag- nets made for the large engine, in a recent trial, supported nearly 5000lbs., and its attractive force at one-ei...

THE YOUNG MAN'S ALMANA[?]. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 22 June 1849

THE YOUNG MAN'S ALMANACH.   The fashion varies with every place you visit. For instance, you may keep your hat on at the Casino ; but it is scarcely considered good manners, to do so at the Opera. You may whistle and join in "God save the Queen," at Jullien's Concert; but the same taste is not expected of you at the Philhar- monic. Any one is at liberty to call out " Bravo, Rouse !" at the Grecian Saloon, but the same exclamation would be considered a little out of place at Exeter Hall. A cigar may be lighted with great effect in the corridor of the Adelphi, when the audience is coming out; but you would hardly attempt such a thing in the crush-room of her Majesty's Theatre. Never sit next to a baby in an omni- bus, much less between two babies. The fewer dignitaries a young man knows on the bench, the better it is eventually for his station in life. Of all morning calls, none are so unpleasant to pay as a magistrates ! If you peep into the bonnet shops, it is a clear proof that you...

The Argus. (Published Daily.) I am in the place where I am demanded in conscience to speak the truth, and therefore the truth I speak, impugn it whoso list ' FRIDAY, JUNE 22, 1849. THE LATE CRIMINAL SITTINGS. The sittings for the month of June which terminated on Wednesday, afford many instructive examples of the bene- fits of convictism. The calendar com- prised the names of upwards of thirty persons, of whom, indulgingly allowing certain doubtful characters the benefit of their pretensions to the character of free men, only seven had not been previously convicted and transported. Of the twenty actually tried, eight were expi- rees, six exiles, and six represented themselves to be free. These claims, how- ever, rest sometimes upon a rather sha- dowy foundation, as it is well known that a difference is made in the degree of punishment, by its being shown that crime has become habitual ; and it is easy to assert freedom, to escape in- creased severity. We fancy that a great number of...
