Commercial Intelligence. Mr Wm. Easey disposed of a quantity of Me[?]l deals, yesterday, at the following price, viz., 239 at 5½ per foot. SYDNEY MARKETS. Friday, June 22. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 29 June 1849

Commercial Intelligence Mr Wm. Easey disposed of a quantity of Merrel[?] deals, yesterday, at the following price,   viz , 239 at 5½d per foot. SYDNEY MARKETS. Friday, June 22. The markets this week have been more encou- raging to our stockholders, both cattle and sheep being on the advance; one large lot of upwards of 60 head cattle sold at £4 4s, and a smaller mob reached £4 10s, and I have since heard of sales as high as £5 ; prices range between   these two figures. Sheep fetch from 6s 6d to 7s 6d. It is said that these prices are owing only to the scarcity of meat in the market, and that they are not likely to stand long. Grain is without alteration.—Sydney Correspondent.

The Argus. (Published Daily.) I am in the place where I am demanded of conscience to speak the truth,anud therefore the truth I speak,   impugn it whoso list " FRIDAY. JUNE 29, 1849. ANOTHER VACANCY. Yesterday's overland mail brings in- telligence of another vacancy in the representation of this District in the Legislative Council, Mr. L. Mackinnon, whose melancholy bereavement is else- where recorded, having relinquished his seat in the Council.   It is but due to Mr. Mackinnon to say that he exerted himself to the ut- most to be of as much service to his constituents as it is possible for a mem- ber of a Sydney Legislature to be, and if the reality or representation for this Province had been demonstrable, Mr. Mackinnon was just the man to have shewn it. The severity of his domestic affliction disarms criticism upon the issue of his first attempt at usefulness in the Legislative Council.

STEAM COMMUNICATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 29 June 1849

STEAM COMMUNICATION. Mr. Stuart Donaldson, the late mem- ber for the County of Durham, has addressed a letter to the " Sydney Morn- ing Herald," from which we learn that the steam communication with Britain so anxiously desired by the Australian Colonies, is apparently as remote as ever. Mr. Donaldson quotes the following from a letter from a respectable London firm, dated 31st January, 1849. The writers say :— " We had a call yesterday from your old acquaintance, Captain Henderson, accompanied by Mr Scott Russell, a steam- engineer and ship-builder. It would appear that the Indian and Australian Steam Navigation Company, (commonly known as Mr. Yates' Company) has actually obtained a contract from Go- vernment to put on a line once a month from Singapore to Sydney, at the rate of £24,000 per annum—the payment to commence as soon as one vessel is on the line, and they are to be allowed six months for each successive vessel, and in the mean time this £24,000 per annum is to be paid. &...

SYDNEY. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 29 June 1849

SYDNEY. (From our own correspondent.)   You will see by this day's Herald that the proceedings against Mr. Martin have been completed, and that he was yester- day removed from the Legislative Council by the Sergeant at Arms. The step taken by Mr. Martin has been for the purpose of raising the question of the legality of the proceeding, by an action of assault against the Sergeant at Arms ; and I have it from a quarter on which I can rely, that so great is the interest, that William Charles Wentworth takes in his protegé that he intends to again join the bar, for the purpose of arguing the question before the Supreme Court. However, I can assure you that Mr. Martin has but little sympathy amongst our citizens, for he has thrust himself so needlessly, so impertinently, and so   prominently forward, that there is but   one feeling respecting him, which is   that of disgust. His barefaced person- alities and uncalled for attacks upon m...

BELFAST. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 29 June 1849

BELFAST. (From our own correspondent.) A great sensation has been created by the following case before our Court. A man named Gilman, a carpenter, engaged with a tailor named Peverel, but better known as " Holy Joe," to build a house for him for a certain sum, and to receive £1 a week until the con- tract was complete, and the balance after completion. Peverel was anxious to get part of the house finished, to admit a friend, and was very annoying to the man ; he also asked several parties to inspect the work, the man declined finish- ing the particular part required ; but went on with the other part. Peverel went to Mr. Rutledge, who issued a warrant under the Master and Servants' Act, the man lay in gaol two days, and was brought before Messrs. Rutledge and Webster. After the tailor's evidence, the man wished to address the court, when he was stopped by Mr. Rutledge, who said, " silence, sir, we want none of your fine speeches here ; if you have any questions to ask the witness, as...

Domestic Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 29 June 1849

Domestic Intelligence. The Canterbury Colony.— Mr.   Lowe, M. C., in his speech in the Le- gislative Council, on the management of the Crown Lands of the Colony, de- scribed the proposed Church of England settlement in New Zealand, which is to be called the Canterbury Colony, as " a settlement in which bishops and specu- lators, orthodox principles and land jobbing, would vie for pre-eminence, under a system of a £3 an acre mini- mum price. Parra Grass.—The Hobart Town   Advertiser states that Earl Grey, her Majesty's Principal Secretary of State for the Colonies, has forwarded a com- munication to Sir W. Denison, the Lieutenant-Governor of Van Diemen's Land, on the subject of the introduction of a species of grass called the Parra Grass, which has been lately introduced by the Dutch on some of the dry lands in the Colonies with considerable ad-   vantage, and which promises to suit similar soils in this country. A quan- tity of the seed is to ...

Domestic Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 29 June 1849

Domestic Intelligence. Ourselves. — At the risk of adding another inch to the formidable computa- tion which has lately so nearly thrown our affectionate friend the " Herald" into a consumption, we cannot help apologising to our readers for the omis- sion of much interesting matter, and for the sad motley appearance of our present publication. The latter arises ftom the inadequacy of our present stock of type for a daily issue, but we shall not offend in that way, after the next arrival of the Shamrock. The former much more serious offence is no fault of ours, but arises from a very objectionable custom amongst the knights of the hammer of this City, of inviting " Argus" readers to their sales on particular days, on others contenting themselves with ap- pealing to the supporters of the " Daily News," and again on the third day ap- pearing to labour under the extraordinary delusion that the whole world is worship-   ing at the shrine of " Buggins." This absurd system is ...

POLICE OFFICE. Thursday, June 29, 1849. Before Captain Jacomb, Major Firebrace, Dr. Playne, and Messrs. Moor, Hull, and S. Stephen. SUMMARY [?]ECTMENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 29 June 1849

POLICE OFFICE. Thursday, June 29, 1849. Before Captain Jacomb, Major Firebrace, Dr. Playne, and Messrs. Moor, Hull, and S. Stephen. SUMMARY EJECTMENT. The adjourned case of Major Davidson, against a tenant named Michael Murphy, under Brews- ter's Act, came on for the decision of the Court as to its jurisdiction. It had been objected by Mr. Ross, solicitor, on behalf of Murphy, that as the application for the warrant was made on the ground of non-payment of rent, which was a breach of a covenant contained in the seven years' lease under which Murphy holds his farm, the Magistrates had no jurisdiction, and that the Major had his remedy in the Supreme Court alone. The Bench postponed their decision till this day, in order to consult the District Magis- tracy on the subject, as it was one of importance to landowners and the public generally. The complainant and defendant, with their respective legal advisers, and a number of wit-   nesses, were in attendance, awaiting the d...

GOVERNMENT LAND SALE. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 29 June 1849

GOVERNMENT LAND SALE.   The sale by auction of Crown Lands was resumed yesterday morning at the Auction Rooms   of Messrs Tennent and Co. The attendance was even more numerous than on the previous day, and the bidding equally spirited. Mr Cropper continued selling till nightfall, when it became necessary to adjourn the sale till this morning, when it will commence at eleven o'clock. The amount realised during the two days fell little short of £30,000, and it is supposed that the remaining lots will bring £9,000. SUBURBAN LOTS. COUNTY OF BOURKE. Upset Price £1 per acre.

Select Poetry. WAIT NO LONGER. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 29 June 1849

Select poetry WAIT NO LONGER. Oh for such an education — Knowledge prospering in the land, As shall make this busy nation Great in heart as strong in hand. Knowledge free and unencumbered, Wearing no dogmatic fetters;   Quickening minds that long have slum- bered ;   Doubling life by living letters. Knowledge that shall lift opinion High above life's sordid bustle ; Thought claims limitless dominion Men have souls as well as muscle.   Knowledge that shall rouse the city, Stir the village, shake the glen ; Teach the smiter in the smithy, And the ploughman, they are men. Shall we wait—and wait for ever, Stil procrastination rueing ;   Self-exertion trusting never— Always dreaming—never doing ? Wait no longer—Hope, Faith, Labour,   Make man what he ought to be; Never yet hath gun or sabre Conquered such a victory !
