The Argus. I am In the place where I am demanded of conscience to speak the truth, and therefore the truth I spesk [?]mp[?]gn it whoso list." TUESDAY, OCTOBER 31, 1848. OURSELVES. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 31 October 1848
The Argus &nbsp; I am in the place where I am demanded of conscience to speak the truth, and therefore the truth I speak impugn it whoso list." TUESDAY, OCTOBER 31, 1848. OURSELVES. As much interest has been kindly mani- fested as to the position in which we are at present placed by the late desperate attempt at crushing the Argus, we hasten to inform our readers of the actual posi- tion of affairs. In the hurried notice which appeared in our last issue, we mentioned that the Sheriff had unwittingly trespassed upon the premises of a stranger, and levied upon property not belonging to the party against whom he held a writ, and sup- posing that he had so acted under the disgraceful feature in the existing law which requires the Sheriff to do what is wrong, if the party wicked enough to require it is sufficiently wealthy to hold him harmless, we were rather disposed to crow at the Sheriff's expense on the mess he had got into. We find, however, that the Sheriiff was not indemni...
DEATH FROM CHLOROFORM.— IMPORTANT INVESTIGATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 31 October 1848
DEATH FROM CHLOROFORM.— IMPORTANT INVESTIGATION. An inquest which occupied several &nbsp; hours took place before Mr. T. Wakley, M.P., and a jury on Saturday last, at the Apollo, Tavern, Francis-street, Tot- tenham-court-road, concerning the death of Walter S. Badger, Esq., aged 23, who died whilst under the influence of chlo- roform administered to him by Mr. Robinson, surgeon-dentist, Gower-street. The inquiry excited intense interest among the medical profession, a large number of whom were present during the proceedings. The body having been viewed by the jury, Mr. Badger, the father of the deceased, identified the body as that of his son. He said he was the coroner of the West Riding of Yorkshire, and resided at Nas- borough Hall, near Rotherham. He last saw deceased alive on Tuesday the 27th ultimo, when he left him at the Rotherham railway station, on his way to London, where he was coming for the purpose of having six of his teeth taken out. He then appeared in his u...

THE ELECTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 3 November 1848
THE ELECTIONS. The nomination of candidates for the different Warids of the City was held on Wednesday, and with the exception of Bourke Ward terminated precisely as we anticipated, Mr. Muiray being re-elected for La Trobe Ward, without opposition, and the remaining Wards being contested the poll will be taken to-day (Friday). In Bourke Ward a sham opposition has Leen raised to Mr. Rankin by the nomi- nation of Dr. Playne, the Dr. himself, however, discountenances the proceeding, and he called on Mr. Rankin, on Wed- nesday, after the nomination to apprize him that he was not a party to the pro- ceeding, and had not given his sanction in any shape to the use made of his name. Under these circumstances the result cannot be dubious

The Argus I am in the place where I am demanded of conscience to speak the truth, and therefore the truth I speak impugn it whoso list." FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 3, 1848. OURSELVES. Our present issue though bearing date on our customary day of publication, will in reality reach the hands of our sub- scribers a day earlier, the Sheriff's ope- rations interfering with our regular rou- tine of business. The Sheriff has thought fit to bring to a sale the printing materials seized by him in virtue of the writ of execution sued out by Mr. Henry Moor. Whether in so doing he is indemnified we have no means of knowing, nor indeed do we much care, for acting as he is with his eyes fully open both to the illegality of the proceeding and the consequences which must result from it, he has himself only to blame if he is made to smart pretty severely for knowingly selling the property of an innocent party, and that party a helpless female. It is a monstrous feature in our law which enables the rich man to...

ENGLISH INTELLIGENCE. THE COLONIAL POLICY OF THE EMPIRE. (From the Times, July 4.) [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 3 November 1848
ENGLISH INTELLIGENCE. THE COLONIAL POLICY OF THE EMPIRE. (From the Times, July 4.) Are we to keep our colonies and lose our money, or keep our money and lose our colonies ? This is the alternative to which a new school of politicians is per- petually urging us. This is the question into which the labours, the speeches, the &nbsp; theories, and the grumbles of a new fashioned economy resolve themselves. Never was it more strongly put than it was last Thursday night by Sir R. Peel, though only by way of introducing the must lame and impotent conclusion to which he had arrived respecting the West Indies. Never, thus far, did the question receive a more effective answer than—strange to say—it received from him. If we could believe that the right hon. baronet would retain his own feel- ings upon this matter, and that towards the colonies in general he would preserve a consistency which he has withheld from them in detail, we should hail his expressions on this occasion as omens o...
COUNTRY NEWS. [FROM OUR WARRNAMBOOL CORRESPONDENT.] [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 3 November 1848
Country News. &nbsp; &nbsp; [From our Warrnambool correspondent.] &nbsp; &nbsp; Since my last, the weather has been very changeable, one day quite sultry, and the next freezing, but it seems now to have settled for fine weather. An impudent robbery was committed the other night, at the stores of Mr. Keith, who was away at the time, some one entered by means of unlocking the door, and stolen the cash box, containing some money, receipts, &c, and a silver watch. As it appears, nothing else was stolen, it was evident that the thief's object was money, and he appeared to know where the cash-box was kept. This proves the necessity of police protection, for there are some lawless characters prowling about this neighbourhood,—vagabonds who have been expelled other communities—and who would vanish, "like a summer cloud," had we the police here. Mr. K. had a watch stolen from his table about six weeks ago, so that he is a heavy suf- ferer. About three ...

Domestic Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 3 November 1848
Domestic Intelligence. Wages.—A young man named Henry Joyce, appeared at the Police Office, on Tuesday morning, to prosecute a claim for wages against his late employer, Mr. James Johnson, a farmer in the suburbs ol Melbourne. Mr, Stephen, for the defendant, admitted the claim, and requested a short time for the payment of the money. As the bench wished to hear the particulars of the case, Joyce deposed that he had been engaged by Johnson, for six months, at the rate of £30 per annum, which period he had faithfully served, but could not get the £15, although his time had expired on the 13th October. The bench decreed for the wages claimed, and allowed Joyce 30s. costs, for loss of time. Stray Pigs, &c.—Informations were filed by the acting Chief Constable, on Tuesday, against Messrs. George Stevens, William Bliss Hayward, and Edward Pearce, the two former for suffering pigs to stray through the public thoroughfares, on the 22nd and 23rd ultimo, and the latter for allowing tw...

THE REVERSE OF THE PICTURE. (From the Daily News July 5.) [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 3 November 1848
THE REVERSE OF THE PICTURE. (Friom the Daily News July 5.) &nbsp; The Proteus of the newspaper press, the Times, is undergoing a new trans- formation. The inability of the combined ministerial and Peel forces to get the new sugar duties carried into committee by a larger majority than fifteen—the in- ability of Mr. Bright to get more than thirty-eight votes for his motion to leave the sugar duties as they are—have had their effect upon that versatile journal. Whiggery, Peelism, free trade—all have been unceremoniously cast off, and yes- terday the Times came forth in the cha- racter of the protectionist organ. This metamorphis—like that which befel the serpent Lamia in Keates's poem—is ac- companied by strange coruscations and Delphic wailings. The article in which the assumption of the new character is prologuised, writhes, flashes and rumbles, like the musical crash and blue or red flames amid which demons appear in melo-dramas. The Times disdains to see in the aims of the...

TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 7, 1848. OURSELVES. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 7 November 1848
TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 7, 1848. &nbsp; OURSELVES. The struggle is now over as far as the Argus is concerned , the battle has been fought and won, and the goodly vessel is at anchor in a port of safety, where she can bid defiance to every gale, and launch her broad sides at the common enemy with even more than pristine vigour. As, however, some change has taken place in our arrangements, it may be expected that we should furnish our readers with something like a new "confession of faith," for it is customary &nbsp; &nbsp; on such occasions to sketch the course intended to be pursued, to make profession of a political creed, and to wind up with a long list of promises of moderation, impartiality, and general good behaviour. It is just as usual, however, with the very journals which are most prodigal of such promises to lose sight of them in practice, almost before the ink is dry with which they were written, to plunge at once into the utmost extremes of abuse or inv...

The Alderman having explained the object of the Meeting, called on the Burgesses to nomi- nate their candidates. Mr. Wilkinson, Innkeeper, Bourke-street, proposed Mr. John Stephen as a fit and proper person to represent Gipps Ward in the City Council. Mr. Francis John Sidney Stephen, the Town Solicitor, seconded rhe nomination. Mr. W. Andrews, Baker, Little Bourke-street, proposed Mr. Richard Dowling, Innkeeper, Bourke-street, as a candidate. He said he had known Mr. Dowling for some time, and had always thought him to be a man of industrious habits; he had arrived in the colony with an un- blemished character, and it had remaiined un- tarnished si...
