SWEET COTTAGE OF CLEAR STREAM. [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 2 June 1846

SWEET COTTAGE OF CLEAR STREAM. I stood when twilight shades were flung, O'er mountain, tree, and tower, When clustering dews like pearls hung From every freshen'd flower. And I thought if earth could boast of bliss Or aught of peace supreme ; Here was a home of happiness, Sweet Cottage of Clear Stream.     All like some sinless child asleep Lay softly, sweetly still, So calm—you heard the music creep When dews their drop distil. Oh ! 'twas a glimpse of that bright land, But seen in Poet's dream ; For all around thee 's bright and bland Sweet Cottage of Clear Stream. Go then ye dupes of fame and reap   Fresh laurels for your brow, Climb high ambition's slippery steep Erect your lofty prow. And there command a world's praise, A flattering world's fame ; Give me remote from these, thy peace, Sweet Cottage of Clear Stream. RETROP. Melbourne, 28th May, 1846.

SUPREME COURT.—SYDNEY. Wednesday, 20th May, 1846. [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 2 June 1846

SUPREME COURT. - SYDNEY. Wednesday, 20th May, 1846. Before Mr. Justice Dickenson and a Jury of four Bacchus v. Le Souef. - This was an action on promises, in which William Bacchus was plain- tiff and Charles Henry Le Souef was defendant. The declaration stated that, on the 6th of April, 1843, the plaintiff drew upon the defendant a bill of exchange for £51 6s., payable at one month after date, and the defendant accepted the same. The plea was, that the defendant did not accept the bill in question. Mr. Darvall appeared for the plaintiff, and Mr. Michie for the defendant. On the part of the plaintiff, a witness was called, who stated that the signature to the ac- ceptance was in a handwriting like that of the defendant; but the witness mentioned that a re-   port had reached him as to this signature having been forged, although he admitted that apart from this report he should have thought that the sig- nature was genuine. On the other hand, a wit- ness was called who ex...

THE ARGUS EXPRESS. [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 5 June 1846

THE ARGUS EXPRESS. We have peculiar gratification in being able again satisfactorily to refer to the result of our exertions to furnish the sup- porters of the Argus with earlier infor- mation than can be obtained through any other channel. The information which will only reach the inhabitants of Mel- bourne by the overland mail, to-day, after nine o'clock, is now furnished to our readers long before the distribution of the mail, and more than half the day in an- ticipation of the other local journals, unless they condescend to pilfer from our columns. The news elsewhere recorded of the Port Phillip horse Petrel's performances at the Homebush races, which was so eagerly looked for, will we dare say disappoint many of our readers. We need scarcely say, however, that the re- sult contains internal evidence of more being implied than exactly meets the eye. Petrel might have been defeated by some of the Sydney horses, but he could not have lost so many races unless by ac- cident or desi...
