The Argus. (PUBLISHED DAILY.) I am in the pace where I am demanded of conscience to speak the truth, and therefore the truth I speak, impugn it whose list." TUESDAY, JUNE 26, 1849. THE "CITY" QUESTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 26 June 1849
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." TUESDAY, JUNE 26, 1849. THE "CITY" QUESTION. Quantum suff, it seems, has not yet been said on the Town and City Question, and the public must submit to a fresh dose on the topic before it reaches the Supreme Court, if, indeed, it ever gets that length, of which we have strong doubts. On Saturday, the Daily News returns to the charge, and on this occa- sion our contemporary's "best author- ity" has paid him the compliment of bringing the Gazette to the rescue, we must, therefore, gird up our loins for the battle, when such heavy metal is in the field. The question clearly lies within small compass. That the Queen has the power to create Cities, and that she has created Melbourne a City, is neither dis- puted nor disputable. The only question is, was this creation for all purposes, or for ecclesiastical purposes only ; to de- ter...

INSOLVENT COURT. Monday, June 25. Before R. W. Pohlman, Esq., Chief Com- m¡ssioner. In re John Winstanley.—At a meeting for proof of debts, A.

Messrs Hull and Son proved for £42 14s. 7d., and the meeting closed.
LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. Friday, June 15. MR. MARTIN'S QUALIFICATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 26 June 1849
LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. Friday, June 15. &nbsp; Mr. Martin's qualification. The discussion as to the order of debate on Mr. Martin's qualification, which was proceeding when our report by last mail closed, was terminated by Mr. Lowe, who moved that Mr. Martin be &nbsp; now requested to address the House and retire. &nbsp; Mr. Mackinnon seconded the motion, which was carried by a majority of 16 to 8. Mr. Mackinon and Mr. William Macarthur, voted in the majority, and Dr. Dickson, the only other Port Phillip member present, in the minority. &nbsp; Mr. Martin then addressed the House in a long &nbsp; and technical speech, lasting about two hours and &nbsp; a half, condemning and disputing the report of &nbsp; the Committee. &nbsp; Mr. Lowe replied in defence of the report. &nbsp; &nbsp; Mr. Wentworth, Mr. Lamb, and Mr. Darvall followed—the whole of the argument being en- tirely a legal one. The Address was adop...

THE ELEVATING TENDENCY OF ODD FELLOWSHIP &nbsp; &nbsp; Then let us pray that come it may, As come it will for a' that, &nbsp; That sense and worth o'er a' the earth, May bear the gree and a' that, Its coming yet for a' that, That man to man, the world o'er, Shall brothers be for a' that. As capable of conferring many and im- portant pecuniary benefits, Odd Fellow- ship is entitled to be ranked as one of the most important Institutions of modern times. It stimulates to improved economy, habits of order, and respecta- bility, and brings home to every man's comprehension, the practicability of honest industry, enabling him, on the principle of mutual co-operation, to provide for a day of sickness, for the feebleness of old age, and the temporal necessities of the hour of death. It demonstrates that for a very small weekly contribution, every working man may make a prudent provision for himself, and those by the ties of nature de- pendent upon him. The science of...
Domestic Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 26 June 1849
Domstic Intelligence. The Colonial Office.—That rank abomination, the Colonial Office, was de- nounced hy Mr. Lowe, in his recent speech, on the subject of the management of the Crown Lands of the Colony, in the following strong but truthful lan- guage. The hon. and learned gentleman said:—" He was induced to call for this &nbsp; enquiry, because he believed the policy of the Colonial Office to be deliberately subversive of the interests of this colony ; because he could trace, in that policy, no motives but those which would induce him to believe that it was desired to strike out this fair dependency, from the dominions of the British Empire. He found that policy to have been the evi- dent determination to confine those ele- ments of this colony to a small and petty state, which, under a nobler and wiser guidance, would have developed to a great and mighty empire. He believed &nbsp; more than this, he believed that the prin- ciples which had guided that office were ...
SPECULATION IN WOOL. To the Editors of the Leeds Mercury. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 26 June 1849
SPECULATION IN WOOL. &nbsp; To the Editors of the Leeds Mercury. &nbsp; &nbsp; Gentlemen,—I think you might render good service by a few remarks in yor: valuable paper, on the reckless specula- tion that is going on at the present time in wool, by parties in Huddersfield and Bradford, who are endeavouring to in- duce the public to believe that wool will be 4d. or 5d. per lb. higher at the next sales than the last. A glance at the imports will show that there is nothing to warrant such an advance in so short a period. Imported in 1847. 1848. German. 41,396 .. 41,478 Spanish. 1,955 .. 403 Portugal ...... 3,005.. 2,922 Australian. 94,292.. 110,941 Cape of Good Hope 13,566 .. 13,409 Russian. 7,555.. 7,402 Total.... 161,769 .. 186,555 The above is from Gooch and Cou- sin's circular. There were from 120,000 to 130,000 bales sold at the different sales in Lon- don alone during the last year, and about 20,000 remain unsold, which proves that there was a large quantit...
MISCELLANEOUS. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 26 June 1849
MISCELLANEOUS. Simple Cure for Stammering. —Mr. Wakley, M.P., at an inquest, stated that, a few days back, the summoning officer told him that it would be useless to call one witness, a lad, because he stuttered so excessively that he could barely articu- late the shortest sentence in half an hour. Mr. Wakley, however, had him called, and, telling him that, as a shot could not be discharged from a gun without powder or air, so words could not come from the mouth unless the lungs had their powder, namely, air ; he told the lad to inhale air, or draw in his breath, strongly, and, the lad having done so, Mr. Wakley asked, " Can you talk now?" The boy, to the surprise of the jury, an- swered immediately, " Yes, I can, sir, very well." The coroner added, that in- halation, or self-inflation of the lungs with air, was a sure remedy for stammer- ing ; and, though it had been discovered long ago, the faculty had not, until lately, and, even then, only a few of them, caused it to be practise...
LIFE AND REMAINS OF THEODORE EDWARD HOOK. COLONIAL DAINTIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 26 June 1849
LIFE AND REMAINS OF THEO- DORE EDWARD HOOK. &nbsp; COLONIAL DAINTIES. " The first course presented to the eyes of the astonished but still unsus- &nbsp; pecting strangers (guests of Hook's, &nbsp; whilst he was at the Mauritius), com- prised nearly every species of uneatable that could he got together. An enor- mous gourd graced the centre of the table ; strange de-appetising dishes were placed around, and in turn pressed upon the attention of the guests. ' Allow me to offer you a little cat-curry,' ex- claimed the host : ' there is an absurd prejudice against these things in Europe, I know, but this I can really recom- mend ; or perhaps you would prefer a little devilled monkey ; that is, I be- lieve, a dish of fried snakes opposite you, Mr. J.—.' Mr. J— recoiled in alarm. ' Hand these lizards round, they seem particularly fine.' Nastiness after nastiness was proffered in vain ; the perplexed Cockneys struggled hard to maintain a decent composure, but with d...
LAND REGULATIONS. To the Editor of the Argus. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 26 June 1849
LAND REGULATIONS. To the Editor of the Argus, &nbsp; Sír,—In the Geelong Advertiser, of yesterday, I see a letter addressed to you, purporting to be an answer to a letter of mine, which appeared in your issue of the 29th ultimo. I will not stop to in- quire the reason which induced the writer to depart from the usual mode of con- ducting newspaper discussion. Did he calculate that his effusion, by appearing in the Geelong Advertiser, might have escaped my notice, or, was he apprehen- sive that his weak attempt, at substitu- ting an approach to sarcasm, and insolent scurrility for argument, might not have suited the columns of the Argus? I shall not sink myself, nor my subject, to the level of his style of argument, by treat- ing his sarcasms and insinuations as mat- ters worthy of reply or retaliation. He may continue to make an exhibition of his knowledge of public men and public principles, British and Colonial, by con- necting the names of Lowe and Fawkner, in the Colony,...

CORONER'S INQUEST. Monday, June 25, 1849. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 26 June 1849
CORONERS INQUEST. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Monday, June 25,1849. &nbsp; An inquest was held, yesterday, at the Yarra Steam Packet Hotel, upon view of the body of Mr. Henry Major, chief mate of the schooner Sophia, who had been suffocated by the fumes of sulphur on the previous morning, on board the above vessel, lying at Cole's Wharf. William Douglas, night watchman at Captain Cole's Wharf, deposed—I knew the deceased by &nbsp; sight; at twenty-five minutes past six o'clock, on the morning of the 24th instant, deceased knocked at the gate of the Wharf, and I admitted him ; deceased then went on hoard the schooner Sophia, and I saw no more of him ; deceased appeared perfectly sober when I admitted him on the Sun- day morning. Neil Thomson, captain of the schooner Sophia, deposed—The deceased was my chief mate ; the schooner being very much infested with rats, it was proposed to fumigate her, and accordingly, about four o'clock on the afternoon of S...
POLLUTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 26 June 1849
POLLUTION. &nbsp; The second great public meeting, the growth of the intense excitement which prevails relative to Earl Grey's infamous proposal to convert this Colony into a receptable for British crime, was held at Sydney, on the 18th instant, Robert Campbell, Esq., presiding, the resolu- tions adopted were as follows :— First,—That considering the arbitrary and faithless manner in which this colony has been treated by the Right Honorable Earl Grey, this Meeting most humbly prays her Majesty to remove that Nobleman from her Majesty's &nbsp; Councils. Second,—That it is indispensable to the well- being of this colony, and to the satisfactory con- duct of its affairs, that its Government should no longer be administered by the remote, ill-in- formed, and irresponsible Colonial Office, but by Ministers chosen from, and responsible to, the colonists themselves, in acrordanre with the prin- ciples of the British Constitution. Third,—That this meeting having unanimously ...
SYDNEY. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 26 June 1849
SYDNEY. (From our own correspondent.) &nbsp; The only topic of conversation for the last few days has been the all-engrossing subject, of the meeting of Monday, and the ferment is hardly allayed yet ; the meeting of yesterday was, like that of the preceding Monday, numerous, res- pectable, orderly, and unanimous, nd with upwards of seven thousand people assembled, I never saw proceedings con- ducted with more decorum, nor ended with greater peace and order ; notwith- &nbsp; standing that it was well known that as on the forrner occasion the kitchen and stables of Government House were crowded with infantry and cavalry, &nbsp; that a large body of Police with loaded fire-arms were in reserve in the Domain, and that the cannons of Fort Macquarie were loaded and shotted, and all to soothe the fears of the pusillanimous old man that we have had thrust upon us as Go- vernor. Our good citizens, however, met the Governor's fears with a smile, and looked upon the pre...
