Original Poetry. SONG. MANY A[?] OUR WORDLY CARES. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 24 October 1848
Original Poetry. &nbsp; SONG. MANY A' OUR WORDLY CARES. Mang a' our warldly cares, &nbsp; An' they're no very few ; &nbsp; An' we a' bae our shares O' tbe auld an' the new, There aften shines a beam, Tho' 'tis but a transient gleam, Frae hope's reviving stream Cheers our hearts up anew. Ilka hour that gangs by In the toil o' the day, &nbsp; Wi' a smile or a sigh Bears some dreamy thought away, O' some future joys in store, Or again 'mang scenes of yore On some far distant shore, In our fancy we stray. But we never heed the cares, An' we never heed the toil ; When tender woman shares, An' rewards wi' a smile Round a' she throws a charm, Maks the cauldrife heart grow warm, An' nerves again the arm That was weary wi' toil. &nbsp; AULD REEKIE.

Domestic Intelligence. The MANDAMUS CASE.—His Honor the Resident Judge delivered judgment on Satur- day last on the application of Mr. Councillor Smith for a writ of mandamus, commanding the Alderman of Bourke Ward to insert the name of that gentleman on the Burgess Roll of the City. The judgment was against the application, and the summons was dismissed though without costs. The objections raised by the learned counsel for &nbsp; the Alderman as to the prematurity of the appli- cation, and the want of power in the Judge to make the order sought, were overruled by his Honor, on the ground that although the Burgess Roll was not in existence at the time of making the application and would not be until the 22nd instant, the writ applied for need not be made returnable until after that period, and though the order sought, if granted, would not be the order of the Supreme Court until the first day of next term (21st Nov.), still as it was the Resident Judge who was to be applie...

The Argus. 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, OCTOBER 24, 1848. THE MUNICIPAL ELECTIONS. The annual municipal elections are now approaching, and we deem it our duty, in consequence, to offer a word of advice to the Burgesses. In determining upon the candidates to be elected it should be borne in mind that the Town Council, (unlike the Legisla- tive Council) is both a Legislative and an Executive body, the duty of making laws and carry those laws into effect devolving upon the same individuals. It is clear, therefore, that the burgesses should en- deavour to have an equal proportion of law-makers and operatives in the Coun- cil, or in other words, of talkers and workers, and there would decidedly be no great harm if the former were left considerably in the minority. Keeping this fact in view as a test of fitness for office, we have only to recom- mend the Burgesses to be guided in mak...

The Argus. I am in the place where I am demanded of conscience to speak the truth, and there fore the truth I speak impugn it whoso list." FRIDAY, OCTOBER 27, 1848. OURSELVES. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 27 October 1848
The Argus. I am in the place where I am demanded of conscience to speak the truth, and therefore the truth I speak &nbsp; impugn it whoso list." FRIDAY, OCTOBER 27, 1848. OURSELVES. Yesterday afternoon another disperate effort at the the destruction of the Argus was made in the shape of a seizure of the presses and types under colour of a writ of execution, issued from the Supremee Court, in the case of Moor v. Kerr. The object of the seizure was not the satisfaction of the claim, for the property seized was not the property of the defend- ant, and even Mr. Justice a'Beckett had been forced to acknowledge that it could not be taken in execution for such a debt, but it had oozed out that certain changes in the ownership of the paper, bringing added vigour and a fresh supply of the thews and sinews of war were in progress, and it was thought that a bold stroke, though in open defiance of the law, might secure the grand object in view—the crushing of the paper, and with but com...

COMMERCIAL DISTRESS. The secret committee " appointed to inquire into the causes of the recent com- &nbsp; mercial distress, and how far it has been affected by the laws for regulating the issue of Bank notes payable on demand," have agreed to the following (their first) report : — In obedience to the order of the house, your committee have inquired into the mattets referred to them, and, having &nbsp; concluded their investigation so far as relates to England, have thought it ad- visable to report to the house their opi- nion on this branch of the subject, toge- ther with the evidence. To complete the labour intrusted to them, the inquiry must be extended to Scotland and Ireland, and the com- mittee will proceed on this duty without delay. During the period of difficulty, depu- tations from Liverpool and Birmingham had communicated with the govern- ment. Your committee therefore thought it best to commence their inquiry by examining Mr. Hodgson and Mr. Turner from L...

COUNTRY NEWS. [FROM OUR WARRNAMBOOL CORRESPONDENT.] Warrnambool, Oct. 16, 1848. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 27 October 1848
COUNTRY NEWS. [Ffrom our Warrnambool correspondent.] Warrnambool, Oct. 16, 1848. There is very little business going on here at present, this being an exceed- ingly dull time of the year, therefore there is scarcely anything worth writing about. All the idlers find hangers-on are away to assist at the shearing, which has now commenced all through the length and breadth of the land. To make up for this dull time, I expect the pub- licans and storekeepers will have their hands full in a month or six weeks hence and will then, it is hoped, retrieve their various losses, which are many, I can assure you, even in this little township, for there is very little money, and "tick, tick," is the order of the day, both with high and low, rich and poor. Shearers are rather scarce, and a good price is now given. I have heard of one party offering at the rate of 16s. per 100, but refused. Our gallant little trader the Mary ar- rived to-day, after a quick passage, in proportion to the weather, hav...
