&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Original Poetry. ELEGY, &nbsp; On the death of E. B. KENNEDY, ESQ., and of hbis ten hapless comrades, S. Biggs, J. C. Clackett, William Costigan, — Dunn, William Goddard, A. Johnson, James Luff, C. Niblett, Edward Taylor, and T. Wall, who perished in the uosh, (Mr. Kennedy speared by an Aboriginal Native, the others of exhaus- tion and starvation,) whilst engaged in an Ex- ploring Expedition, which departed from More- ton Bay, with a view to the extension of loca- tion towards the Gulf of Carpentaria and Northern Coast of Australia. Australia weep ! Bewail the noble band Of bold explorers—Kennedy their head; Who big with noble enterprise, had planned To open up Australia's northern land ; But now, alas ! are numbered with the dead ! Sad was their fate ! how great the honor due To those, who for their fellows ope the door— Who, by their skill and courage, find a clue To splendid tracts of past'ral country new ; Themselves the first...

Domestic Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 26 June 1849
Domestic Intelligence. Civic Wit.—At the last meeting of the Town Council, the auditory were electrified by a burst of wit from the lips of Councillor Russell who seldom indulges in that way. The &nbsp; worthy Councillor in allusion to the hardship of "wee merchants" like himself being brought away from their business to attend to matters alto- &nbsp; gether foreign to the Council, declared that to such a pitch had this evil grown, that he would not be at all suprised if tbey were called together someday to consider the propriety of seizing " the golden oppertumty" for sending one of their members to California, to secure a slice of the gold &nbsp; couritry for the Town Council of Melbourne. We cannot take upon ourselves to say how the worthy Councillor would dispose of his vote in &nbsp; such an event, seeing it has not been ascertained how Mr. La Trobe's pulse beats, but we may &nbsp; &nbsp; take upon ourselves to say that such a pro...

SYDNEY MARKETS. 15th June, 1849. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 27 June 1849
SYDNEY MARKETS. &nbsp; 15th June, 1849. A quantity of rain having fallen in the early part of the week put a stop to business in a great measure for the first few days, and there has not &nbsp; since been much re-action. The trade generally complain. The drapers appear to have felt it most. Soft Goods have been submitted at a trifling decline, which reduction may be temporary — but we imagine late high quotations cannot be maintained, unless the South Sea Islanders or Cali- fornians come among us to drain the market again. New Zealand and the out-ports can take a little from us, as they are receiving goods in large quantities direct from Britain. Ale and Porter — In bottle—say Byass's, ex late ships, have been taken from the side at 8s 6d. &nbsp; The supply continues bare for the demand. Bags.—Three bushel, medium quality, have &nbsp; been submitted at a low figure. Some heavy hemp realised 17s 6d per dozen. Brandy.—Late arrivals from Britian not havi...
HABEAS CORPUS. To Mr. Justice a'Beckett. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 27 June 1849
HABEAS CORPUS. To Mr. Justice a'Beckett. " That nation is in the best estate that hath the fewest laws, and those good. Variety does but multiply snares. If every bush be limed, there is no bird can escape with his feathers free. And many times when the law did not intend it, men are made guilty by the pleader's oratory; or freed by his talk, either to express his eloquence, to advance his practice, or out of mastery to carry his cause : sometimes to gratify a powerful party, justice is made blind through curruption, as well as out of impartiality." ——" Plate sin with gold And the strong lance of Justice, harmless breaks.' &nbsp; Shakspeare. The late proceedings in the (so called) Supreme Court, cannot but alarm every honest man. These outbreaks it would appear are confined to Port Phillip alone, and are managed almost exclusively by Messrs Paynter and a'Beckett. There is more in these seeming out- rages on justice, these violations of equity, than meets the open gaze of the...
MISCELLANEOUS. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 27 June 1849
MISCELLANEOUS. &nbsp; Writing for the Press.—O ye poets and prosers, who aspire to write in the miscellanies, and above all, O ye palpi- tating untried, who meditate the offer of your maiden essays to establish periodi- cals, take care, pray ye take care to cul- tivate a good, plain, bold, round text. Set up Tomkins as well as Pope or Dryden, for a model, and have an eye to your pot-hooks. Some persons hold that the best writers are those who write the best hands, and I have known the conductor of a magazine to be converted by a crabbed M.S. to the same opinion. Of all things, therefore be legible ; and to that end practise penmanship. If you have never learned, take lessons. Be sure to buy the best paper, the best pens, and then sit down and do the best you can ; as schoolboys do put out your tongue and take pains. So shall ye happily escape the rash rejection of a jaded editor; so having got into your hand, it is possible that your head may follow ; and, though last not le...
THE GOLD-SEEKER'S MANUAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 27 June 1849
THE GOLD-SEEKER'S MANUAL. A King's College Professor having come forward with a seasonable work under the above title. Punch begs leave to enter, against the learned professor's volume, his own " Directions for the Diggins." &nbsp; What class ought to start for the Diggins.—Persons who have nothing to lose, except their lives ; and it would be as well they should start without these, if it were possible, as they are not un- likely to lose them in California. Things you should not take with you to the Diggins.—A love of comforts, a taste for civilisation, an appetite, a con- science, a respect for other people's throats and a value for your own. Things you will find useful at the Dig- gins.—A revolving pistol, some know- ledge of treating gun-shot wounds, a toleration of strange bed-fellows, a de- termination to hold your own, and grab at every body else's, and the power of eating, drinking, and wearing gold-dust. &nbsp; The sort of Society you will meet with at the D...
Domestic Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 27 June 1849
Domestic Intelligence. Bright Prospects for the Squat- ters.—Mr. Lowe, one of the Members for the City of Sydney, in his admirable speech on the motion for the appoint- ment of a select Committee, to enquire into the management of the Waste Lands of the Crown, delineated the pros- pects of the squatters in the following not over cheering terms ; the Hon. and learned gentleman said:—" The Com- &nbsp; mittee for which he moved might easily devote a portion of their attention to the present state of the squatting system. Much as that question has already been discussed, he did think it was a subject on which a serious reflex might be well directed. He believed, that even now— fruitless as had been all his efforts in that House to expose the monstrous ini- quity which the system involved, that at last many gentlemen belonging to the class of squatters, would awake to the monstrous evil that was about to be inflicted, not only on the country at large, but on themselves. When they...

EMIGRATION. To the Editor of the Argus. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 27 June 1849
EMIGRATION. To the Editor of the Arus. Mr. Editor.—In my last I ventured to offer some remarks upon the conduct of our home statesmen, in regard to the, (to us Australians at least,) all-import- ant subject of Emigration from our Father land. Since then I have perused a few remarks bearing upon it in the London Times, " the leading journal of Europe," as designated in derision by its opponents, but I rather suspect not without reason : consequently, in pe- rusing the remarks of that paper, I am of opinion, that we may generally, to use a familiar phrase, " see how the wind blows"—and I am sorry to add, that in the essay alluded to, there ap- pears a thinly veiled, almost transparent opposition to the cause, however appa- rently liberal, the language used may be. In the statement referred to, we are told that the total number of Emigrants last year, 1848, from the British Islands, approached very closely, if not com- pletely to 300,000, of which some 20,000 came out to the Australian...
