DOUBLE-DISTILLED POLLUTION [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 28 June 1849

DOUBLE-DISTILLED POLLUTION We little anticipated that, after the no- ble and successful resistance offered by the people of Port Phillip to Earl Grey's disgraceful attempt to inundate this province with British crime, we should be called upon to take up the cudgels afresh in any other quarter. We learn, however, from the Hobart Town Advertiser, of the 15th instant, that Sir William Denison, the Lieut. Governor of Van Diemen's Land, with the view, as our contemporary tells us of " removing the worst part of the Van- demonian population," has resorted to the issue of conditional pardons to the practised scoundrels who have served their novitiate in the probation gangs and penal settlements of Van Diemen's Land, on the express condition of the recipients leaving the Colony. Now, our unfortunate proximity to the " Dust-hole of the British Empire," makes this proceeding, on the part of Sir William Denison, tantamount to a distinct order to the ruffians to make the best of their way here ...

CORONER'S INQUEST. Wednesday, June 27th, 1849. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 28 June 1849

CORONER'S INQUEST. Wednesday, June 27th, 1849.   An Inquest was held this day at the Victoria Tavern, before W. B. Wilmot, Esq., M.D., Coroner for the District, and a jury of house- holders, on view of the body of a female named Jane Johnson, who died suddenly on the pre- vious night. Michael Clancy, shoemaker, deposed—I have known the deceased about six weeks ; I saw her walking in the street on the afternoon of yester- day, 26th instant, and about eight o'clock, the same evening, I heard her speaking with her hus- band, who is a very old man, and blind ; her hus- band was calling her to order, for being so tipsey; I have seen her tipsey three or four times, and in a worse state than she appeared to be in on the present occasion ; I live next door, and can hear all that takes place in the house of the de- ceased ; I heard no unusual noise that night, but, this morning, between one and two o'clock, the husband of deceased called to me, and said his wife was dead ; I imm...

MISCELLANEOUS. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 28 June 1849

MISCELLANEOUS.   Good Counsel for Gold Hunters.— M. Montant, an old Mexican merchant, in a letter to the French paper, La Pa- trie, shows how he accomplished the voyage from San Francisco to this coun- try in two months. Leaving San Fran- cisco, on the 28th of October last, in a small vessel, he reached Panama in twenty-five days. Not being encumbered with luggage, he traversed the isthmus in two days, and at Chagres caught a ship just about to sail for Jamaica. Ar- rived there, his good fortune continued ; for the English packet-boat (the West India mail steamer, we suppose) left im- mediately after for this country, and he arrived here on the 29th December. It does not follow, he says, that the voyage can ordinarily be accomplished in two months : three or four would be nearer the average ; but he maintains that the route he took is undoubtedly the shortest. On his departure from San Francisco, crowds of emigrants had begun to arrive to search for gold dust, which, al...

THE FORTUEN-TELLERS ALMANACK. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 28 June 1849

THE FORTUNE-TELLERS ALMANACK. To dream of a Millstone about your neck, is a sign of what you may expect if you marry an extravagant wife. When a housekeeper dreams of bell ringing, and wakes with it ringing in his ears, it generally indicates that there is somebody at the door—most probably a " gent" who has been supping at the Cider-Cellars. It is very lucky to dream that you pay for a thing twice over ; since after wards, you will probably take care to have all your bills receipted. To dream you are a Judge, is a sign that you will remain a bachelor. To dream of Bagpipes is an agreeable omen. On the principle that dreams are to be interpreted by contraries, you may expect to hear music. To dream of a Bear, foretokens mis- chief ; which your vision shows you is a Bruin. If you dream of Beer, it is a sign that you may expect "pot-luck." To dream of a Boar, forebodes a Rail- way call.         To dream of a Cab foreshows a jour- ney,...

CALIFORNIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 28 June 1849

CALIFORNIA.   " California embraces four hundred miles of sea-coast upon the Pacific Ocean. On the east, it is bounded by the Californian gulf, forming, in fact, a long peninsula. The only way of ar- riving at it by land, from the interior of Mexico, is to travel many hundred miles north, across the wild deserts of Sonora, and through tribes of Indians which, from the earliest records down to our days, have always been hostile to the Spaniards, and, of course, to the Mexi- cans." " The most northerly establishment of Mexico on the Pacific Ocean is San Francisco ; the next, Monterey ; then comes San Barbara, St. Luis, Obispo, Buona Ventura, and, finally, St. Diego ; besides these sea-ports, are many cities in the interior, such as St. Juan Cam- pestrano, Los Angelos, the largest town in California, and San Gabriel.''   Along the shores of the Pacific Ocean from the 42° down to the 34° North, the climate is much the same ; the only difference between the wint...

COLONIAL GOVERNORS—THEIR EMOLUMENTS AND SALARIES. JANUARY, 1849. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 28 June 1849

COLONIAL GOVERNORS—THEIR EMOLUMENTS AND SALARIES. January, 1849.   A return has been presented to the House of Commons of all the governors of our colonies and military stations, with their emoluments and salaries. An ab- stract of this paper is subjoined. We observe that Ascension and Port Essing- ton are omitted, as also the Superintendent of Port Phillip. If rumour be true, a successor to Sir W. Gomm, in the Mauri- tius, has been appointed since this return was made up, One thing, apparent from this return requires this explana- nation. If an officer, on half pay, re- ceives a governorship, his half-pay, ex- cept in the case of Heligoland, is stopped while he holds it. But if an officer on full pay is appointed governor, he con- tinues to draw, although he does not dis- charge his duties. Sir H. Smith, we per- ceive, continues to receive his emolu- ments as army clothier to his regiment, though he can scarcely manage the busi- ness himself, at the Cape of Good Hope. ...

INSOLVENT COURT.   Before R. W. Pohlman, Esq., Chief Com- missioner. Wednesday, June 27 In re A. H. Boys.—An adjourned meeting on application for certificate. Mr. Plaistowe appeared for tbe insolvent, and applied for his certificate, on the ground that all the requirements of the Act had been complied with. Mr. Chambers appeared on behalf of the Bank of Australasia, and Mr. Joseph Raleigh, to oppose the certificate. Mr. Plaistowe objected, in limine, to Mr. Chambers being beard, 1st, because no caveat had been lodged up to the 20th June, the day appointed by the Commissioner for entering into the application for the certificate; and, 2ndly, because the application, having been adjourned from that day, it was incumbent upon any credi- tor, intending to oppose the insolvent, to have furnished him with a written notice of tbe grounds of opposition. Mr. Plaistowe having been heard in support of these objections,   Mr. Chambers replied, that the first point had ...

Domestic Intelligence. GOVERNMENT LAND SALE. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 28 June 1849

Domestic Intelligence. GOVERNMENT LAND SALE. A public sale of Crown Lands took place, yester- day, at the Auction Rooms of Messrs. Tennent & Co., pursuant to proclamation in the local Go- vernment Gazette. The attendance of bidders was very numerous, and throughout the day's proceedings a strong spirit of competition was ex- hibited. The auctioneer did not sell more than the first 58 lots, as it was found impossible, in one day, to go through the entire quantity offered for competition. The following are the results of the sale : -— SUBURBAN LOTS. COUNTY OF GRANT.     Upset price £2 per acre. Lot 1.–22 acres, parish of Barrarbool, near Geelong, purchased by J. & W. Highett and F. D.

OUR NEW CONSTITUTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 28 June 1849

OUR NEW CONSTITUTION. In the hurry of the discussion, provoked by the Sydney Morning Herald's parting growl, at " the crooked and crotchetty political conduct of the Port Phillip people," and the amusement elicited by the Melbourne Morning Herald's inno- cent demand of " What will the Earl Greyites say to this now?" the actual     importance of the concessions which it is proposed shall be made to the colonies, has not received sufficient notice, and, comparatively, few in the community have any idea of their real magnitude. The power which, in this province, is obtained over the Executive Government, from the civil list being fixed at its pre- sent amount, arises from the supera- bundance of our revenue, and the   niggardly mode in which the Sydney   Government has doled us out our own ; it will not, therefore, be participated in, by any of the other colonies. In Syd- ney, and, in fact, in all the other colo- nies, the Legislature...

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." THURSDAY, JUNE 28, 1849. IMMIGRATION. We are strongly inclined to suspect that   Port Phillip is not receiving justice, in the immigration now in progress. The   rule laid down was, that of the 5000   adults, sent out by the Home Govern-   ment, in anticipation of the Land Fund, one half would be sent to this port, and the other to Sydney ; and that, in future, immigrants would be sent to each dis- trict, in proportion to the extent of its contribution to the land fund.   Now out of thirty-four ships, which arrived here, during the past year, nine- teen were sent to the middle district, and   only fifteen to this district. We have   no present means of ascertaining the     number of ...

Select Poetry THE OLD CHURCH-YARD. The old church-yard, the old church-yard, It is a holy place ; Wherein all tranquilly repose     A humble village race. And much I love, at daylight's close, When all is calm and fair ; With lowly thought and reverent heart, To slowly wander there.   The old church-yard, the old church-yard, Its grass is brightly green ; And there the blossoms of the spring   Are ever earliest seen. There, too, the thrush her song doth sing, Amid the elm-trees high ; Beneath whose boughs a lucid stream With quiet tune runs by. The old church-yard, the old church-yard, With ancient church and tower, Upon whose walls the ivy bright Doth make a verdant bower : With carved porch, which, to the sight,   Presents a seemly show, And marble monuments of knights Who died long, long ago. The old church-yard, the old church-yard, Heaven grant that when I die, My bones beneath its grassy sod For ever more may lie...
