PHRENOLOGICAL INVESTIGATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 26 June 1846
PHRENOLOGICAL INVESTI- GATION. We take the following humorous account | of the visit of Robin Affleck, the hero of j the tale entitled "TheDisruption," lately published, to Mrs. Hamilton, of Edin- burgh, professor of Craniology : "You are rather of a sanguine or san- guine fibrous temperament, I see ;" and, turning to her amanuensis, she directed him to put down sanguine 5, fibrous 4. "I ken," said Hobin, " I have a tem- per o' my ain, but I dinna see boo I can ha'e nine o' them-five o' ae kind and I four o' auither." " Your reflecting organs are less fully developed than those of the knowing and observing faculties." " Organs ! I ne'er was sne hypocon driac as to think I had onything like an organ in my head." " What is meant by an organ in phre- nology is not the musical instrument of that name, but a distinct portion of the brain." " Ou, I see ; may be what ye might ca' whussles rather than organs." " You are remarkably full in the basi- lar region." " The ashiler region ?-that s...

A SONG OF OFFICIAL AFFECTION. .(From, the Sydney Morning Herald.) AIR-THE COLONIAL, SECRETARY.

SONG—THE DAYS WHEN I WAS YOUNG. [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 26 June 1846
SONG-THE DAYS WHEN I WAS YOUNG. Oh! I remember pleasantly the days when I was young. &nbsp; The warbling birds on every spray their wild notes gaily sung; And every day pass'd bright away without a care or sorrow, And my thoughts and my dreams were of joys of the morrow. And oft I sadly sigh-but, alas! I sigh in , vain, To think that I shall never see such happy days again ; For o'er my head the years have fled like night when day is breaking, And they seem like a dream that fades away on I waking. I've seen the budding flower burst forth in nature's spring, And blossoms all expanding told how Time was on the wing i The summer sun his course has'ruu-the flower was in its pride ; ' But, when came Autumn's surly blast, the flower droop'd and died. Thus 'tis with man ; our youth is like spring - - time of the flower, The summer time is manhood's prime and beauty's brightest hour r With Autumn's wind we surely find our days, grow short in number, And we sink into the grave like ...

To the Editor of the Melbourne Argus. [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 26 June 1846
To tft« Editor of the Melbourne Argus. Sin-I have been much disappointed by not seeing ia any of the local journals the valuable and interesting paper-for such I am informed is its character which was read on Wednesday evening of last week, by William Hull, Esq., J. P., before the members of the Mecha- nics' Institution. I had fully intended being present on that occasion, but was prevented by the inclemency of the weather ; and 1 have no doubt there is a number of persons that were similarly circumstanced, who are equally disappointed with myself in not having seen the paper in priut. Any thing that is calculated to throw light upon the obscure origin of the abo- rigines of this country, or to afford other information respecting them, cannot fail, one would think, to prove deeply inte- resting to persons of every class ; I do hope, therefore, that Mr. Hull may yet disseminate, in a more general form, the important information which it must have cost him no little pains to collect. ...

To the Editor of the Melbourne Argus. Sin,-The Duke of Wellington risked hif re- putation by declaring " County Meetings to be a farce." One of the greatest farces that was ever enacted in this line was that performed at the Royal Hotel on Wednesday last, said to be a meeting of the inhabitants of Melbourne, lat. Because, excepting through an advertise- ment in the Argus, no publicity was given to it. 2nd. That only twenty-four penons were pre- sent, including two or three gentlemen con- nected with the press. 3rd.

Because his Worship the Mayor as Chair- man imparted to, instead of received the sense of, the meeting. 5th. Because, as the representative of her Ma- jesty, Sir George Gipps is at least entitled to public respect, whereas the result of the meet- ing was an uncalled for and impolitic insult to the Governor; a stultification of its own pre- tended obj...

INTER-COLONIAL TRADE. (From the Sydney Morning Herald.) [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 30 June 1846
INTER-COLONIAL TRADE. (From the Sydney Morning Herald.) Some considerable time since Lord Stanley di- rected the Governor not to give liis ncsent to any Bill which would impose differential duties in favour of, or adverse to, any Britisli colony. At the time when the despatch was first published^ many of the colonists thought it was an inter- ference with freedom of legislation, but we con tended, nnd we think showed satisfactorily, tha it was strictly constitutional, that it was in fact essential, that the Imperial Government shouldt have and exercise the power of regulating the external trad« of the colonies. This principle was admitted by the Legislature, and the duties im- posed in Sydney are the same, whether the article imported is the produce of Van Diemen's Land or Western Australia. Lord Stanley's letter was a circular to all the colonies, and was of course sent to Van Diemen's Land, although it has not yet been acuted upon. In that colony it appears that hitherto the produ...
