Domestic Intellgence. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 19 September 1848
Domestic Intelligence. NEW ZEALAND.—The late Act of Parliament suspending the New Zealand constitution is in substance a delegation to Governor Grey of the powers of Par- liament during five years, His Excellency having the power to nominate a Council, to call together an Elective Council, and to create Municipal Corporations. PORTLAND.—We regret to report that no intelligence of the safety of the miss- ing boat, with the two men, has reached us. All accounts seem to agree in the probability of their having been lost.— The boat is said to have had not a sound timber in her, and had been merely patched up for the purpose of plying across the first river. Those who know the boat assert she would be sure to go to pieces in a rough sea. A native came into town on Friday, and reported that while he was fishing on the rocks oppo- site the Laurences, on the day on which the boat was missing, that he saw it sink; &nbsp; while a party of workmen from the town, while in search of the ...

Original Correspondence. To the Editor of the Argus. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 19 September 1848
ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE &nbsp; &nbsp; To the Editor of the Argus. MR. EDITOR.—In this morning's issue of the " Patriot," I find you come in for a large share of low blackguard abuse, for giving insertion to my letter in the last issue of the " Argus." The vulgarity and falsehood contained in the two letters in the " Patriot," evidently the production of the same little mind—are so foreign to the matter at issue, that I will not condescend to notice them further, than the assertion that you have been a beggar, is as untrue as it is mean, and could only proceed from a mind, composed of ignorance and falsehood. The public on two occasions, rightly thinking that your public conduct merited their support, contributed some- thing substantial for that purpose, and you would have insulted your numerous friends had you rr- fused this testimony of your public worth; as well might a "Burgess of Bourke Ward" say that &nbsp; the eighty thousand pounds subscribed as a pres...

FISHING IN SOUTH AUSTRALIA. (From the New Monthly Magazine.) [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 19 September 1848
FISHING IN SOUTH AUSTRALIA. BY GEORGE HAMILTON, ESO. (Fiom the New Monthly Magazine.) Notwithstanding the multitude of fish that swarm in the principal rivers of Australia, fishing has not as yet become a popular amusement with the settlers, probably because they cannot be consi- dered as a class of persons who seek much for what Europeans call amusement, money-making being the aim of their ex- istence, and their principal recreation the simple and innocent one of "tobacco smoking." Any pursuit that does not include one of these objects has but little interest for the Australian. For my own part, as an Australian, I must claim an exception from this rule. I never could smoke with any sort of enjoyment, nor could I by any possibility make money. My object through life has been to search in an indolent sort of way for its amuse- ments ; and being too blind to look at the dark side of anything, I have managed some how or other to scramble through a fair portion of trouble, without bein...

The Argus. 1 am in the place where I am demanded of conscience to speak the truth, and therefore the truth I speak Iimpugn it whoso list." TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 19, 1848. THE DISTRICT ELECTION. On Thursday, the nomination of candi- dates for the representation of the Dis- trict in the Legislative Council, will take place at Geelong, and on that day conse- quently it will be seen whether the elec- tors of the province are disposed again to seek voluntarily subjection to Sydney thraldom, or whether they will like their Melbourne brethren renounce at once and for ever connexion with the unclean thing. The attempt to assert the principle of the existence of genuine representation for the province in a Sydney Legislature has proved a desperate failure. Out of the heterogeneous mass of nomi- nees the Geelong Advertiser has announced, there are not actually a sufficient number of real candidates of any shape or description in the field to make up a return to the writ, the only consenting part...
THE ORANGE LODGES IN ARMAGH. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 19 September 1848
THE ORANGE LODGES IN ARMAGH. A meeting of the Grand Orange Lodge of the county Armagh, was held at Ar- magh on Tuesday, the 25th April, Sir William Verner, Bart., Grand Master in the chair. It was resolved as follows :— "That at this season of unusual excitement and alarm, when false rumours are insidiously circulated, and silence, on the part of the traduced is thought to justify suspicion, we feel called on to reiterate the assu- rance that our principles and those on which the institution was originally based, remain unaltered. With the unswerving loyalty of faithful subjects, we love our gracious Sovereign. We love the true re- ligion established amongst us, and neither the wrongs inflicted on our own children and ourselves, nor the lavish concessions by which enemies to the public peace have been emboldened and made strong, have prevailed to shake our attachment to British connection, or to efface from our hearts and minds the conviction that it is our wisdom, as it is in accor...

ENGLISH NEWS. (From the Adelaide Observer.) [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 19 September 1848
ENGLISH NEWS. (From the Adelaide Observer.) |THE " Home News," of May 24, received by way of Mauritius, states that the London Times, in an express afternoon edition, published on the 23rd, announced the important fact that the difference among the members of the French Government was so great that they were not expected to con-tinue to act together. General Cavagniac has ____, which appears again in danger from the attacks of the discontented. Lyons is a little less agitated. The workmen, however, are in a state of great excitement, and have possessed themselves of the citadel. The Government had been obliged, for wantof money, to stop the works and dismiss the men, hence the émeute. Letters from Vienna, of the 11th May, contain the intelligence that his Majesty the Emperor, with the Empress, left the capital on the previous evening taking the direction of Mariahilt. An hour afterwards an empty imperial travelling car- riage and four others followed, and it became evident, from a v...
