Domestic Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 22 June 1849

Domestic Intelligence. Tommy's Bunkum.—We are never too   proud to correct an error when by any cause whatever we have committed one. —Port Phillip Gazette.—[Right, Tom- my ; so now then for your correction of your "rich specimen of bunkum." Re- collect that your readers are to this day, led to believe, that Lord Grey never intended to send convicts to Port Phillip.—Ed A.] The Precedence Controversy.—We observe in connexion with the prece- dence controversy which is exciting so much interest among the members of the Churches of England and Rome, that in the official documents laid by the Government before the Legislative Council, the Roman Catholic Arch- bishop is designated " the Most Revd. the Archbishop" instead of " the Most   Revd. Dr. Polding," as was the custom formerly. The title " His Grace" is not, however, given. Lunacy.—Francis Hughes, the lu- natic alluded to in yesterday's Argus, was brought up yesterday at the Police Office; on a charge of at...

SYDNEY. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 22 June 1849

SYDNEY. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) You will perceive that my information was correct, as regarded the Committee appointed to enquire into the qualifica- tion of Mr. James Martin, and there is no doubt but that the Governor will de- clare the seat for Cook and Westmore- land vacant. Our good folks of Sydney are per- fectly furious at the reception given by the Governor to the Deputation ap- pointed at the public meeting of Monday last, and a monster meeting is to be held on Monday, when, if we have only fine weather, it is expected that nearly all Sydney, will turn out. In fact, I never beheld so much excitement on any sub- ject in Sydney, during my lengthy colonial experience. It ¡s rumoured, however, that the Government intend to take steps to prevent the meeting. For the truth of this, I cannot vouch, for weak, vacillating, timorous and insulting as our Governor has shewn himself within the last few days, I yet can hardly believe that he will venture to prevent the free express...

LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. Tuesday, 12th June. CROWN LANDS. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 22 June 1849

LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. Tuesday, 12th June. CROWN LANDS. Mr Lowe supported his motion for a Select Committee on Management of the Crown Lands, in a long and very eloquent speech. The hon. member concluded by stating that if the policy that dictated the present land regulations were continued in, the colonists would retrograde, instead of progress, and this only to gratify the self-love and arrogance of the miserable office, that since the days when it drove the American States into revolt, had, down to the present, preserved the same anti-colonial spirit. Mr. M'Kinnon seconded the motion, suggest- ing, however, that as the people of Port Phillip were equally interested in the discussion of this question, it would be better that the committee should be appointed by ballot, in order that the interests of that district might be represented in   it, as well as of the middle district. Mr. Lowe expressed his concurrence with the amendment. The Colonial Secretary defended the Col...

Domestic Intelligence. Wool Sales.—The Geelong Adver- tiser accompanies a long list of the February wool sales with the following remarks :— " We have been favoured by Messrs. Strachan and Co., with the following particulars of the February wool sales. The details amply confirm the general statements which we made in our last. The broker's report on one batch of these wools, is to the effect that the advance upon the prices of September last is thirty-three per cent." A press of matter prevents our giving the par- ticulars till to-morrow, but we select the follow- ing, as showing the result of attention to the breed of sheep, and the getting-up of the wool.

SURGEONS SUPERINTENDENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 23 June 1849

SURGEONS SUPERINTENDENT. In our recent remarks upon this most important subject, we referred more im- mediately to the medical treatment of the passengers on board of Emigrant ships, and the behaviour of the Surgeons simply in their professional capacity. A slight digression led us to consider some parts of the conduct of some of their number, in their characters of Su- perintendent ; but the case then before us having resulted in an enquiry of a medical nature, that part of our subject required the principal portion of our attention. But there are other considerations of very serious importance, comprised within the duties of a Surgeon Super- intendent. That gentleman, apart from his medical duties, is armed on board an Emigrant ship with very extensive and responsible powers—powers indeed of such a nature, as to amount to the com- pletest despotism, and which would never be intrusted to any single man to wield over British passengers, but for the urgency of the case, and the neces...

Original Correspondence. To the Editor of the Argus. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 23 June 1849

Original Correspondence         To the Editor of the Argus. Sir,—an article appeared in your paper of this morning, copied from the Geelong Advertiser, stating that the owner of Swordsman declined running him against Bessy Bedlam or Petrel. I am happy to be able to inform you that the chal- lenge, Bessy Bedlam against Swordsman, was not accepted, as Mr. Austin would   not let the race come off, unless Mr. Dry would also run Lunatic against Petrel, which, he could not do, as he had parted with him. With respect to the second part of his communication, that Swords- man had not "a trace of the racer" about him—I am able to inform you that a more likely looking horse was never stripped on a race-course. As to his not being able to compete with a second-rate Port Phillip horse, I am very strongly of opinion that, when he meets a first-rater, he (the Port Phillippian) will be, like the little boat, all behind. However, I will state a fac...

IRELAND.   (From Bell's Messenger, March 3.) MELANCHOLY STATE OF THE COUNTRY. The accounts from the country are de- plorable ; cholera is extending in the north—hunger and destitution in the south and west, and death advancing everywhere. In the district of country known as Connemara, the deaths from insufficient and bad food, amount to hundreds daily. It is almost an impos- sibility to find, in a large village, a healthy looking man, woman, or child. The whole rural population appear to be withering away.

ENGLISH. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 23 June 1849

ENGLISH.   Railway Across the Isthmus of Panama.—According to the advices re- cently received, a bill has been laid be- fore the Congress of the United States, on the report of a committee on naval affairs, for making a grant to a company proposing to make a railway across the Isthmus of Panama, of 250,000 dols. per annum for twenty years, reckoned to be equal to 5 per cen., on the esti- mated expenditure of capital. The com- mittee reported, as to urgency, that " one year's delay in the work will cause as great a loss as the whole amount pro- posed to be granted in 20 years." This Panama railway is to bring the East Indies and China 10,000 miles nearer to New York (exclusive of reference to California) and the bill stipulates that seven-eighths of the stock shall be at all times owned by the citizens of the United States, and that the principal office of the railway company shall be in some seaport of the union.—Bell's Messenger, Feb. 12.

Commercial Intelligence. TALLOW. February 17* At the commencement of the week a good business was done in prime yellow cast on the spot, at one time, the price was firm at 41s. ! but, as H?olders appeared more anxious sellers, and pressing parcels forward, the demand became less active, prices gave way, and the market closed very quiet at 40s. 6d. for first quality, and 3d to 6d. less for inferior sorts. New tallow, for October   to December delivery, is offering at 41s. to 41s.   6d., but no buyers to be met with thereat. As arrivals come in freely from South America, and further parcels are expected, the trade holds off, expecting lower prices. Home melted does not find such ready buyers at the late advance, but 40s. 6d. to 41s. nett cash, are the rates paid for all parcels of pr¡me fresh melted. The stock of       all kinds continues heavy, and deliveries are not so good as they were at this time last year. Fifty   ...

THE GOVERNOR AND THE SYDNEY DEPUTATION. (From the S. M. Herald, June 15) [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 23 June 1849

THE GOVERNOR AND THE SYDNEY DEPUTATION. (From the S. M. Herald, June 15 ) That odious question, the Renewal of Transportation, has not yet, it seems, filled up the measure of its iniquities. Having involved the colonists in a rup- ture with the Secretary of State, whom   they upbraid with a breach of faith, it now threatens to involve them in a rup- ture with their own Governor, whom they are called upon to censure for a   breach of manner. Of the two evils, this last is by far the more serious. A quarrel with people at the antipodes is necessarily a work of time, and must be carried on on both sides with some degree of composure and self-posses-   slon; but a quarrel with next door neighbours may be the work of a mo- ment, while the passions are inflamed and the judgment asleep. We are angry with Earl Grey ; but we vent our wrath in petitions and protests, and then quietly await the event. If, however, we get angry with Sir Charles Augustus Fi...
