To the Editor of the Melbourne Courier. Sin,-As the public look with much confidence to your interpolation of the various Acts of Coun- cil affecting the welfare of the colonists, I hope you will not deem it intrusive on your valuoble time, or occupying too much space of your useful columns, should I take the liberty to lolicit, through the medium of the Couriet, your opinion as to how far the powers of Crown Land Com- missioners extend in impounding stray cattle, found either upon licensed runs, or upon vacant (1. e unoccupied) Crown Lands! and also to what extent said Commissioners can delegate their powers to another paityl and whether Poundkeepers are eligible persons to be invested with the authority to impound cattle under any circumstances 1 By the 2nd Victoria, No. 27, (22d March, 1839) in section 6th, I find that Commissioners can impound cattle belonging to any unlicensed pet son only Section 10th of said Act, gives the same power under different circumstances.

To the Editor of the Melbourne Argus. Sin-I find that the hint given to the Town Surveyor in your journal of the 16th instant, m reference to the destruction of the green sward on the Flag staff hill, has been totallvdisregurdcd, and that the work of devastation is going on as befoie without let or hindrance In these cir cumstances, I should like if you would point out what course can be taken for remedying the evil. VIATOR. [The only remaining remedy is bringing the j matter before the town Council, and to accom- plish that we feel assured it is only necessary to request Alderman Bell s attention to the subject, for as the Alderman of the Ward ni which the mischief is being done, it comes peculiarly within the scope of his duties -Ld.

NEW ZEALAND. ATTACK ON THE CAMP AT THE HUTT. (From the Wellington Independent, May 20.) [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 26 June 1846
NEW ZEALAND. ATTACK ON THE CAMP AT THE HUTT. (From the Wellington Independent, May 20.) Since the commencement of the Hoad to Po rirua, a body of fifty men of the 58th Regiment have been left to occupy a position at Boulcott's Barn, in the Hutt valley. This detachment is under the command of Lieut. Page. The main body occupy the barn and out buildings, whilst a picket of twelve men is thrown out as a 'look-out party. It was generally understood during the past week that Rangihaeata had threatened to attack either the position occupied by the troops at Po rirua, or that on the Hutt. But though the threat was reported, very few anticipated how soon it would he fulfilled. On Saturday, half an hour before daylight, the sentry of the outlying picket observed several na- tives creeping towards his post. He immediotely fired at them, but before the.party were in a posi- tion to repel an attoek, a rush was made by the natives from all quarters, and the picket over- powered. The natives then...

THE PUBLIC MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 26 June 1846
THE PUBLIC MEETING. Did any of our readers ever happen to ob- serve a petted child in high dudgeon fling- ing its handful of sugar-plums in the dirt, because its naughty Marama had re- fused it the contents of the plate ? If so, ".hey have as apt an illustration as can possibly be given of the proceedings at the public meeting on Wednesday. Mr. Edward Curr personified to the life the overgrown " cuif " of childhood who will not have his " piece" because it is not large enough, and his opponents in the minority the "paw'kier chiel," who takes what he gets, " an' glowrs for mair." Mr. Curr and his friends would not, it seems, thank the Governor for what he has done, because he did not give us all we wanted before, and because to give him thanks at all would be " a clean bill of health" to his Excellency, and a cen- sure upon the Legislative Council. Well, be it so. Are we not to be thankful for " sma' mercies" as well as great ; and if thanks are due to Sir George Gipps, or censure to...
POUNDKEEPERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 26 June 1846
POUNDKEEPERS. We have to request the attention of our country readers to a letter referring to the proceedings of the Poundkeepers in the Squatting Districts, in the impounding of cattle, and to the remarks thereon, which appear under the head of " Original Cor- respondence" in to-day's publication. It would seem from the complaints which reach us on this subject, that these mal-practices have grown to such a head as absolutely to form a monster-grievvnce of the squatters of the District ; and we are told that since the promulgation of the late outrageous order for making over *o the tender mercies of the Protectorate, all the unbranded cattle found in the Dis- trict the evil has become still more into- lerable, owing to the emissaries of the Black Establishments and the Pound- I keepers hunting in couples and dividing the spoil. It seems to us that, except in the case of unbranded cattle above twelve months old, no person whatsoever can legally impound the cattle of any licensed sq...

DEATH OF MR. KNIBB, OF JAMAICA. (From a Correspondent of the Leeds Mercuty.) [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 26 June 1846
DEATH OF MR. KNIBB, OF JAMAICA. (Fiam a Correspondent nj the Tweeds Mercuty.) The missionary, patriot, and philan trophist, William Knibb, departed this life on Saturday, the 15th of November, after a short illness of four days. The fatal disease was yellow fever. The con- trast between Mr. Knibb's life and death was striking. In life all energy, decision, and unbending devotedness to the cause of God and of man. In death humble, calm, and peaceful. One of his last ex- pressions, whilst ho retained the posses- sion of his faculties, was, "A guilty, weak, and helpless worm, on Jesus' arm I fall. The persecution of the Missionaries and the burning of the chapel in Jamaica brought Mr. Knibb prominently into public notice in 1832. The history of these events in detail will probably never be put on record. The Baptist Missionary Committee, when Mr. Burchell was in England, requested him to prepare the history for publication. He promised to do it, and commenced the work, but he discontin...
