PORT PHILLIP. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 26 March 1842

PORT PHILLIP. The late proceedings against Mr. Arden have given rise to a petition for the removal of Judge Willis. Although the petition had been handed about for some time, but few signatures were attached. A counter petition is published in the Pa- triot; and that paper and the Gazette are at war on the subject. We furnish the following extracts from the papers received: EXTENSION OF CRIME.-We regret to find, from communications which we have received from the country, that depreda- tions are much upon the increase. Not satisfied, it appears with the harvest al ready reaped ill Melbourne and its suburbs, we learn that numerous lawless villains are now paying their predatory visits to our country friends. It may be recollected that at the last criminal sessions, a man in the employ of Mr. Rider, a settler on the River Plenty, was found guilty of robbing his master of a variety of valuable articles, and sentenced to undergo three years in- carceration; but this example, it seems, i...

Your assertions with regard to the general characters of those who belong to the "Total Abstinence Society" are partly true and Iartly thlse. It is not true, sirt, that tile mmcnbers of tins society are generally persons of the lowest and most illiterate class, for we rank among out' numbers a majority of the greatest and best of Imenc living; and we jutdge, from the almust unlpre cedented success which has already attended tlhe friends of temnperance, that the tilme is not ftr distant when all great and good menls will be con strained to identify themselves with a cause which is so glorious, both in its effects and its achieve ments, The achievments of our society you youlr self, sir, acknowledge; and we angree with yoell that some of our mlllelmbers hare beenl raised from ia worse thai beastly state ofdegradation-only there is this difl'crence ...

TO THE EDITOR OF THE "LAUNCESTON EXAMINER." Sin.-It has been a matter of great surprise to me that in all discussions about tlh communications between Australia and England, so little has been said on the route by the Red Sea; indeed, I do not know that it has been at all seriously discussed to tih. present time, excepting very partially in a pamphlet of Mr. Ross'; and yet it recoln. mends itself at the first glance by these three most essential points-Flirst, it is the inos direct line ; secondly, a great part of thoe line has been for years occupied by a monthly steam communication, and very shortly more than half the distance (more proba'bly two. thirds) will be provided with powerful steamers; thirdly, the intercourse between lnlidi and England by that line is of such a vast extent and importance, that the communica. tion must, in the probable course of events, be put in the most complete footing that money can effect. These points being obvious and undeniable, it seems most sin...
