MAURITIUS. (From the Sydney Morning Herald.) [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 30 June 1846

MAURITIUS. - (From the Sydney Morning Herald.) Since our last notice a few more papers have come to hand, lo the 17th April in- clusive, they contain nothing, however, , of any interest. The only matter not before noticed is a slight alarm amongst the planters lest a disease which has been found to have attacked the sugar canes of Bourbon should be communicated to the plantations through the medium of seeds, plants, or roots, brought from Bourbon to Mauritius. The planters and chief mer- chants of Mauritius were about to send a scientific man to Bourbon to ascertain the nature of the disease, in order to provide some íemedy, should the plantations of Mauritius become similarly affected. j

THE SQUATTERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 30 June 1846

THE SQUATTERS. With to-day the Act of the Governor and Legislative Council, under which the existing Squatting System " lives, moves, and has its being," comes to a close, and with it expires the arbitrary powers which under the ancien regime belonged to the office of Commissioner of Crown Lands ; in fact, though the Governor has declared it to be his sovereign will and pleasure that the office should still exist, as far as either power or emoluments are concerned these heretofore omnipotent decerners of the fate of the Squatocracy may well, with the Moorish warrior, exclaim " Othello's occupation's gone !" With the demise of the Commissioners' authority dies also the capitation tax on sheep and cattle, and, according to the Legislative Council, the fees for depas- turing licenses als"o. On this point,'how ever, the Governor is at issue with the Council, his Excellency insisting upon his power, and declaiing his determination to levy, by the power of the Royal pre- rogative, any amo...

Wednesday, February 19, 1846.-Left Auckland in the I Bm'tKnow, schooner, Captain Thompson: light winds, and hearts as light amongst the few in the cabin ; met an American whaler going in to refresh ; these vessels have latterly be- gun to frequent Auckland, and add con- siderably at times to its bustline; appear- ance. The entrance to this harbour is easy and well sheltered inside. There are many advantages to be found in this port, in the way of refreshments and re- fitting. There are plenty of spars fit for masts in the neighbourhood, besides, which, meat, vegatables, poultery, eggs, &c, may be purchased at every reasona- ble prices. Cargoes of copper ore and timber may be obtained for the home market, and in respect of these, its exports, it has made rapid strides, con- sidering its infancy; and the obstacles its progress has met with from a Govern- ment wretchedly mismanaged in e...

To the Editor of the Melbourne Argus. [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 30 June 1846

To the Editor of the Melbourne Argus. Sir-As the matter to which I am now about to call your attention is a subject which concerns every employer of labour, 1 am sure you will -readily give insertion to this. On the 8th instant a shepherd in my employ thought proper to abscond, leaving a nock of lambing sheep to take care of themselves. I pro- cured a warrant for his apprehension from a neigh- bouring magistrate, as also the information on oath (particularly stating the circumstance of his having deserted a lambing flock) which was duly landed to the Bench at Melbourne. The man was apprehended, and the charge of absconding substantiated by the overseer, on Thursday last, as also of his having lost some sheep. The Bench enquired if the man was wanted back, and were told that he was not. His agreement and state of his account were asked for and read-the latter showing a balance of £113s. against bim ; and will you believe it, the man had his agreement cancelled, and was set at li- ber...

To the Editor of the Melbourne Argus. [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 30 June 1846

To the Editor of the Melbourne Argu». Sin,-It ¡b with considerable pleasure that I observe that your attention is, at last, although some» hat tardily, beginning to be attracted to a subject which has hitherto received a degree of notice by no means proportioned to its deserts. I allude to a somewhat novel mode of letting some portions of the Crown Lands of this district, which is correctly stigmatised, in your last paper, as "that fruitful worker of unfriendly feeling among neighbours, and complete destroyer of social harmony, the occupation license system." It has long surprised me that so little attention should have been excited by a system which, however quietly and insidiously it has made its way amongst us, 1 helieve to be fraught with the direst evils ; but I feel convinced that there are many of your readers who will coincide with me in thinking that the course at present adopted, and with such apparent success as to threaten its continuance and extension, is one well deser...
