MATCH AGAINST TIME. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 23 June 1849
MATCH AGAINST TIME. This match, which had excited more than usual interest in the "sporting world," came off on Monday at the new Race Course. "Swordsman" the pro- perty of Mr. Dry, was backed for £50, to run three miles in six minutes, which bet was taken by Mr. John Lord. The odds were six to four in favour of " Swordsman;" however, from the un- &nbsp; favourable state of the weather on Satur- day (rain having fallen during the whole of the day) fears were entertained that the course would be too heavy, and the early part of Monday morning wore a hazy appearance ; still the horse re- mained the favourite, as the weather guage of the barometer stood at seven o'clock, a.m., at 30 2-10ths, and con- tinued at the same guage until ten o'clock, all doubts as to the weather were dispelled, the event being to come off at one o'clock. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; The road to the course early began to wear a business-like aspect. Sundry pedestrians wer...
THE CONVICT QUESTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 23 June 1849
THE CONVICT QUESTION. The following petition to the Queen has been numerously signed by natives of New Zealand, residing in the northern districts :— " Madam,— Saluting you. This is our memorial ; the memorial of the na- tive chiefs of New Zealand, to you, that you may know our thoughts. &nbsp; " We have heard of a letter that has been received by Governor Grey, from one of your Elder men, that is, from Earl Grey, written on the 3rd August, 1848, concerning convicts being sent to this island. " Now what we say is, don't send them here. Don't go away from our former understanding. When first it was arranged that your people should colonise this country, the principles on which it should be done were then laid down, and it was understood that such men, that is, convicts, should never be brought here. Let this stand fast; and all our other arrangements, let them be confirmed. " Madam, if convicts are sent here we shall be all involved in trouble. The property of the white man w...

IMMIGRATION. PUBLIC NOTICE is hereby given, that His Honor the Superintendent has received intimation that passages had been engaged by the Home Govern- ment, on board the Hope, to sail from Plymouth about the 26th of February last, for the persons whose names are here annexed, viz.-—John Wilson, 20, son of Michael and Bridget Wilson, who arrived in the Colony by the Ward Chip- man, Ann Hlayess, 19, and Johanna Hayes, 17, children of Patrick and Ellen Hayes, who arrived in the Colony by the Ward Chipman, John M'Keogh, or M'Cowv, 11, and Maria M'Keogh, 8, children of Patrick and Bridget M'Keogh, arrived in the Colony by the Agrícola.

The Argus. (Published Daily.) I am in the place where I am demanded of conscience to speak the truth, and therefore the truth I speak, impugn it whoso list." SATURDAY, JUNE 23, 1849. IMMIGRATION TO THE OUT- PORTS. The Land and Emigration Commis- sioners who were at one period so liberal in their distribution of immigrants in the Colony, that they proposed sending two ships, and did actually send one to Twofold Bay, have latterly, for reasons which have not been made public, come to the resolution of sending ships to Sydney and Melbourne only. This has naturally created dissatisfaction in other sea-ports of the Colony, and, in our own province, his Honor the Superintendent has been endeavouring to allay it by sending immigrant ships to Geelong, and forcing immigrants to proceed to Portland. There can be no question but that it is right and proper that both Geelong and Portland should have their fair quota of immigration, but whatever they are entitled to receive ought to &nbs...
Select Poetry. THE FIRST VIOLETS. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 23 June 1849
Select Poetry. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; THE FIRST VIOLETS. By Sir Bulwer Lytton. &nbsp; Who that has loved knows not the tender tale Which flowers reveal when lips are coy to tell ! Whose youth has passed not, dreaming in the vale, Where the rath violets dwell ? Lo, when they shrink along the lonely brake, Under the leafless melancholy tree; Nor yet the cuckoo sings, nor glides the snake, Nor wild thyme lures the bee ! &nbsp; Yet at their sight and scent entranced and thrill'd, All June seems golden in the April skies ; How sweet the day we yearn for, till fulfilled ! O distant Paradise— Dear land to which desire for ever flees, Time doth no present to the grasp allow ; Say, in the fix'd eternal shall we seize At last the fleeting Now ? &nbsp; Dream not of days to come, or that unknown Whither hope wanders (maze without a clue) ! Give their true witchery to the flowers—their own Youth in their youth renew. &nbsp; Ava...

Domestic Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 23 June 1849
DOMESTIC INTELLIGENCE. The Defences or the Colony.—The Home Government has point blank refused to render any assistance towards the construction of defences for the colony, alleging that the situation of Halifax and Quebec, by which they are so much exposed to attack, formed a sufficient reason for furnishing them with defences at the cost of the mother country, but her Majesty's servants, &nbsp; while they recognise the right of the Australian &nbsp; colonies to look for their fair share of that protec- tion, which it is the object of her Majesty's Naval and Military forces to extend to all parts of the British empire, express themselves of opinion that these colonies have now made so much progress in wealth and population, that their inhabitants may reasonably be expected to bear also a part of the heavy charges which, with a view to that protection, are imposed upon their fellow-subjects residing in the United Kingdom; and that the smallest contribution towards th...

THE CORONER. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 25 June 1849
THE CORONER. Economy in the administration of the Government would, while Port Phillip continues under Sydney rule, be an absolute injury to the community, for every penny left in the province, even if squandered, is so much saved from Sydney spoliation. For this reason it is that the Press of Port Phillip is silent regarding the few abuses of this descrip- tion which the extortion of the Sydney Government and Legislature suffers to exist. There is one shameful abuse, how- ever, which we cannot reconcile it to our conscience to pass unnoticed. We mean the department of Coroner at Mel- bourne. For a long time Dr. Wilmot was the only Coroner in the province, and received the certainly not too high salary of £80 per annum, but when provision was made for the appointment of additional Coroners for the Province, the Legislative Council positively re- fused to vote Dr. Wilmot the amount he had previously received, though they were willing, and did vote the amount for the payment of two Co...
